Surrey, was the best! He made this so much easier on us and lives up to his reputation percent. Furthermore, Gretchen and Smiley are scheduled to find out more about this development by the end of June. It would have put me back out there in the public eye, but for all the wrong reasons.
Do you keep in touch with any of the other Housewives from the show? The thing is, people never really understood, I was so much younger than the other women on the show. I was never really as much friends with them as I was working with them. I had my own friends that I went out with in LA, doing my own thing, and the show made it seem like we were all friends, but really, I had my own life with Slade. I have always felt like the black sheep in that group because they were so much older than me, with children and marriages and I was just a 22 year old girl, barely figuring out who I was.
Did you feel stifled in your relationship because you wanted to be in LA when you were on the show? I ended up passing on the dance program, but I was always involved in music and dance.

And then we tried to get back together…Lauri and I had a conversation about it on camera, and then here we go again with Gretchen… Q. On the show, Gretchen said that she called you to let you know about her and Slade, even though he had said not to.
She called me because I found out from her ex-boyfriend Jay that Slade and Gretchen were hooking up. So the whole reason she called me was because it was already out. She actually called me when Slade was in jail and she was asking for help.
We were ALL friends, you know, no matter how close we were, I just wish they would have come to me first, without me having to find out the way that I did.
