Dramarama! Olivia Dishes on Run-Ins with Frankie, Gigi and Tracy
It was uncomfortable running into Frankie at the club. I never knew Frankie as just Frankie—I knew him in conjunction with Gigi! Even though I'm not friends with Gigi anymore, it just didn't feel right, but the girls dragged me over there. Since I made the decision that I didn't want Gigi in my life anymore, seeing Frankie and talking about our exes was definitely weird.
Of course Jackie started trouble with Frankie! We always call her Captain Awkward because she is just the most awkward person in the world. She gets joy out of being awkward and putting you in awkward situations. She thinks everyone is going to fall in love, get married and have babies. She'll be like, "Olivia, here: I found the perfect guy! Get married and have a baby with him now." And it's just like, "No, Jackie, that's not how it works!" She does it to all of us. She did it to Michelle the other day when we went out! Michelle was talking to some guy and Jackie goes up to them and says, "You guys would have cute babies." That's just Jackie. Maybe somebody who didn't know her would be offended, but she's one of my best friends and I understand her. So don't worry—she wasn't really pushing me on Frankie.
Obviously, there was never any intention to be like, "Guess what? I'm going to go be friends with Frankie now!" There was nothing spiteful or malicious behind it whatsoever—it just happened. It was a group of guys and a group of girls, and we all got along well, so we hung out. We ran into each other, and that's really all it was. Honestly, if Gigi and I ever became close again and it upset her that I was hanging out with Frankie, I wouldn't do it anymore. My girls are more important than a guy.
Not to toot my own horn, but I'm a really good friend. I would do anything for my friends because they're my family. I'm not close to my family, so my friends mean a lot to me. I don't expect much, but your friends' actions and how they treat other people show you how they are as a person, and I wasn't cool with what I was seeing from Gigi. She would say one thing to me and something completely different to Tracy. How can you not hinge a little bit of your friendship with someone on how they treat others?
I think Gigi was so hurt that I cut her off because she felt more connected to me than Tracy. She was closer with me on a different level and trusted me more with personal stuff. Nothing bad against Tracy, but her and I are different. Even though people say we're similar, we're not. Somebody can tell me something in confidence and I might get mad at them, but I would never use it against them. Ever. It's just not right, and I would never want somebody to do that to me. You shouldn't lower yourself just because you're angry, but Tracy lets her anger get the best of her. Knowing that, I feel like Gigi wouldn't confide in Tracy completely because she was always scared that Tracy would use it against her. I always told Gigi, "The last thing I ever want you to deal with is what I go through with Tracy. Always stay on her good side. Always stay civil with her."
While she was at my apartment, Gigi claimed that she and Tracy were never really friends, but they were. Gigi got stuck in a really weird situation and tried to play both sides, and I didn't like that. If you're going to be civil with someone, be civil with them, but she went out of her way to hang out with Tracy. Gigi would tell Tracy that she was like a sister to her but then make fun of her behind her back and tell me that she didn't even like Tracy, and that's not right. Then one time, I heard that Gigi badmouthed me to Tracy. Why wouldn't I believe that? So as much as Gigi would also say to me, "I love you. You're my sister," I guess she didn't really mean it.
I'm a Virgo. That sounds like the worst excuse ever, but I swear I even retweeted a post the other day that said, "Virgos don't waste time hating people. They just cut you off and go on their way." It was me to a T. My whole life, if someone really hurt me, I always thought, "Why try to fix this?" If I'm not seeing a sense of loyalty or they're not being true to me, then I don't want that person in my life and I don't feel the need to talk about it. It's how I handle situations. Is it the right way? No, not at all. But the way Gigi handled her situation with me and Tracy wasn't right, and the way that Tracy has handled some of her situations by fighting hasn't been right either. We're all flawed, and this is my flaw.
Speaking of Tracy, I didn't know where she was coming from when she talked to me outside of Anthony's salon, but what she was saying had no relevance. First and foremost, I'm not dating Frankie, nor do I want to be. Nothing will ever happen between him and I, so what she was saying was far-fetched and crazy. I didn't try to argue with Tracy or get into it because it was completely irrelevant.
She's very hypocritical. After all, she started talking to my ex Lorenzo when I was still with him. She wanted to go after a guy who had a girlfriend and that was her prerogative—that's the kind of girl she is. I, personally, would never go after a guy who had a girlfriend. Mike had actually dated multiple girls after Tracy and did not have a girlfriend when we started dating, so for her to try to hint that I did that to her didn't make sense. It was just Tracy being Tracy, so I didn't pay it much mind. I don't trust her, nor do I owe her any loyalty.
