Housewife vs Homewrecker

First? I'm starting this post laughing. I am posting from my phone & as soon as I typed "homew" my phone tried to fill in HOMEWRECKING 4 times. Not homework or another normal person dictionary word. But HOMEWRECKING. And in all caps. My "smart"phone is living up to its title ;)

Did everyone catch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last night? I've been anticipating this episode for weeks. Actually, since last season when Brandi & Scheana crossed paths at Lisa's party.

I'm going to ignore how Scheana must have felt because I don't give a rat's ass. But can you imagine what Brandi must have felt walking in? Getting ready that morning, knowing she would be spending her afternoon face to face with the other woman. I don't know if I change my opinion based on the shows seasons or my life's changing seasons but I look at her so differently this season. When she was first introduced, I would have never used the word "class" to describe anything about her. But wow! I would hope I could handle that conversation with as much class as she did.

Yes, you can't "steal" a man that doesn't want to go. The man is to blame. But the mistress isn't any less guilty in my opinion. She knew who he was. She knew what he had at home. She knew what she was doing. And she knew how it would end... In fact, she was probably hoping it would. I know a "woman" who said that she felt bad "laying claim" to a married "man" but "just couldn't help it". She knew. She knew darn well & didn't give a shit. In today's world of Internet & social media, it's hard not to know. Especially when the married man is a freaking celebrity. So yes, Eddie is scum. And should get the blame. He wasn't stolen, he chose to cheat. However, There's plenty of blame left for her.

With that said, hats off to Brandi. She totally kept it together and walked out of that restaurant looking like a mature, level headed, adult. The bigger person. A woman her children could be proud of. I don't know if I could have done the same. Instead of a shoulder pat, I would have been tempted to wrap my hands around her neck. I would have cursed. Probably used the term "homewrecking whore" a few times. (again my phone want to put that in caps lol) I realize this is reality TV. And sometimes reality tv is a "little" scripted. But this is her real life. And even if the whole conversation was scripted & produced for TV but the bottom line is that is her real life. And I don't know if I could even sit & pretend as well as she did.

Have you ever confronted someone that caused you pain? That may have forever changed the course of your life? If not, have you ever imagined what you would say if given the opportunity? Would you want to hear what they have to say? Would you even believe their words?
