Anyhow.... it wasn't long before I saw the tide turning on poor Scott Disick. :( I read through the FB comments on The View FB Wall and so I thought I would write a wee post to provide a little more explanation ......
First of all - the Production team at The View are.... brilliant. They were soooo great to work with and they took wonderful care of me and the kids - and my make-up lady - I personally think she should win some kind of Emmy for her work on me... lol. No - seriously - that woman must be a magician in Vegas part-time because she's got mad magic skillz! :)
Mr. Disick was the "guy guest host" for my Friday segment. Everyone was given questions to ask me - though.. it with utter shame that I admit I talked too much and Whoopi never got to ask her question... who the hell does that?!?!?! Seriously!?!? Who out talks Whoopi.... good grief!
Mr. Disick's question *was* about the kids and how they were doing.... So I want to clear that up straight away - he was asking his "co-host" question. When I replied that they were fine and hadn't seen the sign, Mr. Disick responded with the question/answer I get *A LOT* - which is - "can't the kids read the sign?".
I went on to explain that the children *can* read, but have not seen the sign and therefore are unaware of what's happening because we aren't living in the house.
Then, I think both my answer and his next question are lost in translation a bit.... *I* was explaining that we can't say in the house because we cannot afford to keep it.
Now.... let's side track just a scouch. YES, El Capitan did a terrible thing - and it cost me my soul mate and my life partner and .... a crap ton of money. However, I *DID NOT* go after spousal support. If I had gone after spousal, then I could have stayed in the home with the kids... but this, in my humble opinion, would *NOT* have left El Capitan with enough monthly funds to set up a new life for himself.
Yes.. yes - I know. This is a decision that resonates with many as a poor one on my part - and I FULLY appreciate that.... however, I am blessed with family who was kind enough to offer us a room to live in. It's nothing fancy - just a bedroom with a double bed. Most of our toys and stuff are in a storage unit... however, it's a nice wee room and the kids and I are *lucky* to even have this option (as many single Moms have NO ONE to turn to) and I am VERY grateful to be staying there. The kids are happy and safe and enjoying life - as they should be at their age.
This seemed like the best choice for everyone.... and at the end of the day - making the best choices for El Capitan *WILL* serve to benefit the children... and that is the goal: Two HAPPY, WHOLE children from ONE broken home.....
OK... back to the View.
So, I was answering Mr. Disick about where were staying and he then asks a question - which based on people's impressions online - didn't come across the way it did when he sitting next to me - which was, he wanted to know why we weren't staying in the house even though we're currently paying for it.
Which - is actually a logical question....however, we put the house up For Sale By Owner, we were hoping for a fast sale and regardless of when the house sold - the kids and I would be moving in with family - so I opted to move in NOW to give the kids a chance to settle before Summer was over - and....clearly, Mr. Disick has never tried to keep a house spotless with two kids running around... lololol :)
So, I *do not* think that Mr. Disick was asking his question from a place of rudeness or ignorance to the plight of "non rich" people.... I think he was just genuinely confused. And let's be real.... I'm *not* what people expect and my choices are *not* choices alot of people would make - I think he was reasonable in his questions.... as to his look of bewilderment... I can't speak to that because I haven't seen it yet.
He was friendly and nice to me in the make-up room..... just sayin'. :)
I do not watch the Kardashian show, so I'm not familiar with who he is - but he seemed like a nice guy to me....And anyone who thinks that money - a lot of money or a little money, makes your life perfect or wonderful or bereft of pain, or hardship..... well, that's just plain wrong. Rich people bleed the same as us "poor" people..... or as Dave Grohl once said, "Everyone shits and it all smells the same: like shit"...
It was an amazing day and I am forever indebted to the ladies at The View for giving it to me.
Now.... someone buy my damn house. PLEASE! lololololololol
Ps.... It's a bit unreasonable to assume that Mr. Disick or Ms. Kardashian would purchase my home for me just because of a misunderstanding.... lol. This is a hard road - but it's my road - and I'm going to pave it as best I can one brick at a time... But thanks for the support. lol
