On Second Thought: Episode 7 – I Shouldn’t Have Hit Willow with the Refrigerator Door

Trust me, it’s crazy to see your life on television. That’s why every week, I’m going to do a blog posts called “On Second Thought.” These posts are where I will go over the episodes of my Lifetime show as I process the issues presented now that I’ve seen them aired.  I hope you’ll join me for these weekly posts – which will undoubtedly be part-confession, part-explanation, and part-celebration of my life right now!

Episode Seven, Air Date: July 10, 2012

On second thought, I shouldn’t have told Gino about Levi cheating on me with that girl at the fight.

(It just made him jealous!)

On second thought, I shouldn’t have tried to make Willow participate in our Valentine’s Day dinner.

(I can’t make her do anything.)

On second thought, I shouldn’t have cut the stems off the strawberries.

(But they tasted better than they looked!)

On second thought, since Valentine’s Day turned out to be less than romantic, I should’ve invited Andy to eat with us instead of sending him home to his mom and Carl’s Jr.

(You can’t have romance with Tripp around threatening to topple the candlesticks.)

On second thought, I shouldn’t have sat so close to Willow during the bonfire because I knew she’d stick snow in my boot.

(No fire could’ve melted her anger toward me.)

On second thought, I shouldn’t have hit my sister with the refrigerator door.

(I should’ve used something bigger.)

    this episode really got to me and then I saw your “on second thought” blog and had to see if you “saw the light” of what really happened. The whole episode you went on and on about how Willow ditched you and left you hanging when in reality you told her flat out to leave! And she clearly didn’t want to talk about he boy issue and you kept provoking her, after she’s trying to make a nice dinner for you all. But, I see you guys love each other and have that usual sister love/hate thing going on. Just had to stick up for her for a bit, especially after your second thoughts didn’t show any fault on your part. But, keep up the great work. I enjoy watching your show and reading your blog.

    Well, I thought your family respected each othrr more…but I have been stabbed and choked and worse by my brother (I am not pointing fingers). I am glad Tripp has two strong men to look up to. God bless you and your family.
