Olivia: "I Didn't Want to Jeopardize My Sanity Again"
I was really depressed last year. I feel like you could see it in my face. There was so much drama that I was dealing with, between the salons and my relationship, and it was taking a toll on me. I was miserable. When I finally left the salons, I felt so good, positive and happy. I hadn't felt that way in a while.
So there I was—I just left Anthony Robert Salon and Ant was already trying to pull me back in! The thought of going there and putting myself back into that head space... No. I didn't want to do that to myself again. I like where I'm at and the way I feel, like myself again! I didn't want to jeopardize my sanity again.
At the same time, it always feels good to know that somebody needs or wants you, and I love working with Anthony. He's a good guy to work for. That's why I said yes—but not to working at the salon all the time! I agreed to helping out here and there because Anthony's done a lot for me. Loyalty was the key—I wouldn't leave him hanging.
Luckily, there wasn't a lot of drama when I went back for Anthony's blow out event. Tracy did ask me some questions, though. First and foremost, her just saying anything like "single white female" is funny, because I've made comments about her being a single white female in the past on the show. I feel like Tracy really needs to sit back and take a look at what she's done in her past before she tries to call somebody else out.
Honestly, what did I do to Gigi? I didn't do anything. I didn't go after her man. I didn't copy her clothes. It's funny for Tracy to say that. She's trying to make a mountain out of a molehill. She just so badly wants somebody else to be a villain besides her, to put the negative views on somebody else for once because she always gets it, but I didn't do anything wrong. Did I handle the situation wrong? Yes, but I never had a bad or vindictive intention. I never was like, "I'm going to go after Frankie because I don't like Gigi." That never went through my head. Tracy likes to intentionally hurt people, and that's not right. I would never do that to somebody. To be honest, I would never want to see Tracy hurt. I would never outwardly try to hurt her because there's no good from that. There's a thing called karma, and it comes around on it's own.
When I spoke to Gigi again, I just got more confused. The girl was just so passionate about how much she misses me as a friend and dislikes Tracy, but still doesn't care enough to make it right?
