Now, up to this point, I have fought Terra and most of the girls to defend my relationship with Matt. This week, I took Jasmine to meet Matt because I wanted her to give him the opportunity to share his side of the story. The only way I knew how to counteract judgmental assumptions and put an end to the constant attacks was to find friends who would support our relationship and then let the others follow suit if/when they chose to do so. The sad truth is, I have a group of friends who are so focused on looking at someone's “past” that they can’t see my present happiness. I am a grown woman who puts my child first and I do not believe in a cookie-cutter timeline of how love is “supposed” to fall into place. With that said, I am so thankful Jasmine got to see Matt for who he really is — completely opposite of what my so-called “friends” make him out to be.
Terra’s apology took me by surprise but was a step in the right direction — as long as it was genuine and not just an attempt to sweep the problem under the rug. I just wish that she and her entourage had given my fiancé a fair chance from the start. Friends are supposed to support one another; I’m always the last to judge a decision any of them make. Sure, I will ask questions if I have concerns, but then I leave it alone until I feel there is cause for more questioning or alarm. Bottom line: I have done my research, I have a mature, respectful friendship with his ex-wife for the welfare of the kids and everyone in the picture is happy. What works for me obviously doesn't work for anyone else, but that is the beauty of having our own lives to live. Please read between the lines of pure opinion and see that Matt has a great relationship with his son. He can afford a nice car, has worked since he can remember and treats me like a queen — so all of the unnecessary drama is a matter of assumption.
In the next couple of weeks, Matt will be living with me and the stress of the distance will no longer exist. Rest assured, my daughter, Leiana, is so excited and ready for him to move in. As a team, we will conquer the world and silence the haters.
This season is just getting warmed up. Stay tuned, because I will not back down and I have so much more to show the world! You ain’t seen nothin' yet. For my fierce loves and unconditional supporters, you all have been so amazing. We wouldn't be Lifetime's top-rated show without you, so thank you for watching and see you next week! #StayFierce #LittleFierceMama #BrianaRenee
