I might be an enabler to Whitney as far as her not leaving the nest and getting out on her own, but she elected to go back to school and I was helping her out by allowing her to live with us again. Whitney moved out of our home only days prior to turning 18. She moved back home when she was 23 and wanted to turn her life around and go back to school. Do I shelter Whitney? Sure. Do I spoil her? Absolutely. Should she learn to support herself? Yes. That is why when I was disrespected repeatedly by her not following our rules, she was asked to move out—albeit with a credit card in her hand that I paid the bills for. I love my daughter more than life itself and would do anything for her, including pushing her out into the world to make it on her own.
As far as the Fashionistas go, Leslie simply needs to start her own fashion organization, if that is what she is interested in, and move on. I would never want to be a part of any organization that is going to be that difficult. I think Leslie made her point to Satan, so enough is enough.
Connie's grand opening ended with a crazy fight. I apologized to Connie for my involvement, but after Connie told me how Pam was telling horrible rumors about me during her event, I just couldn't stand it any longer. Whitney is 24, and Jason and I were teaching her a lesson about getting out on her own, and Pam intervened. Pam obviously was nice to Whitney to get to me as she has always done in the past, but that never works. I couldn't care less, and good for Whitney not to have to fight with her while she is trying to sort out her life. Whitney would not have charged a boob surgery on her credit card for me to pay. She knows better than that. Hannah encouraged her to see the doctor, but Whitney was wasting his time. Whitney will not have the surgery and she doesn't need anything done at all.
Regarding my behavior at Connie's party, I know that I should not act that way in public. I did not put my hand near Pam's face as she claimed, I simply pointed in her direction and she physically hit my hand. My friends have noticed that she tries physically to intimidate me when we argue by standing over me and inching near my face as her husband did to me the night of the cocktail party. She is much larger than I am and would win in a physical fight, easily, so there's no contest. I wasn't raised that way nor would I conduct myself in that manner. By hitting me, I think that is the trashiest behavior she has exhibited thus far. I hope the bully stays far away from our circle of friends. Not only has she (or her good friend) been a cyberbully, but now she's also a physical bully. She simply doesn't fit in with us; when she is not around, we all get along great and have fun.
