I Forgive You, Wayne Brady

Many of you know that comedian Wayne Brady made a tasteless joke about my brother at the Roseanne Barr roast several days ago.  Since then he’s written a very sincere apology, my Mom has accepted it, and I certainly do too.

If any of you guys have read my book or watched any news about me at all, you know that I’ve made mistakes.  Thankfully, I serve a God who forgives, and I’m grateful for his forgiveness every day.  Unfortunately, people don’t often forgive, and it is truly painful to sincerely say, “I’m sorry” and watch people still turn their backs on you.  I pray that I won’t be that kind of person, and I won’t be that kind of person to Wayne Brady.  So, we forgive you, Mr. Brady — completely and sincerely.

Now, I’m off to YouTube to watch the best of Whose Line is it Anyway (you were always great!)

    Very mature on the part of both Wayne and Bristol. Nice to see there are still a few grown-ups left in America. Roasts are gloves-off for the people in the room, not outside of it and certainly not in relation to a child, handicapped or otherwise.

    As an aside, I wouldn’t trade one Trig for a thousand Roseanne Barrs. What a pig of a human being.

      That statement is too dang-diddly true!!

    You inspire us all.

    While I have forgiven some of the people who have hurt me and turned their backs on me even after I’ve apologized for something I’ve done, there are some out there that I want nothing to do with ever again. It has nothing to do with holding a grudge or anything like that; it’s just that they have proven themselves to be so toxic that distancing myself from them is the only thing I can do for my own well-being.

  • Paulette

    Awesome…what an example both of you are giving to others!

    To Cindy,

    Life is too short to be bitter of other people’s success. “The truth shall set you free.”

    You and your mom are both extremely gracious people, Bristol. God bless you both.

  • BBower

    When I think of the Palin, especially Sarah, the word gracious does not come to mind.

  • Marie

    Very big of both of you. His apology, your acceptance and forgiveness.
