Everything always works out in the end and I still loved my experience on The Block. I’ve said it before – we did not sail through this. There are still rocky times to come. My husband was furious last night. His phone was ringing all night. Relatives and friends were so angry at how Amie and I were made to feel. My Mum was crying. It’s all ok! We got through it and more power to us.
Well you all got to see the ‘explosive’ episode last night. I didn’t watch it. Why would I?
I knew the whole thing would be hyped up, heavily edited (probably by a man no doubt) and I really didn’t want see any of it again.
That builder (who even wants to say his name!) grabbed the cameras whilst we were out on a challenge and really let it rip, so I hear. How stupid of him. What can I say about $7,000 for 3 and a half days work?? “Tell him he’s dreamin’.” So NO, we did not pay him that amount of money.
I was asked by the media yesterday…. Do you think he took advantage of you? No, ‘advantage’ isn’t the right word because we had nothing to offer him. We had no tradeskills and he did, so his knowledge was greater than ours. What we were made to feel was ‘silly’. Just downright silly. He wanted to rub it in that he knew more than us and we knew nothing. How childish…
People are asking me why I don’t respond to the negative comments over on Facebook? Are you serious? What the heck for? Why would I bother with that vile place? It’s a hate page for the all of the contestants not a fan page. I am so surprised they are allowed to get away with it. No one is happy to let you be warm and fuzzy. I have learnt so much about people in general… this could be a whole blog post I think! Or I should write a book about “treating people how you’d like to be treated”. I truly feel Australia has lost it’s way and only knows how to be rude. Actually, I think Australia is breeding a huge generation of know-alls. I’m surprised we haven’t taken over the world with so many geniuses on hand!
Anyone, feel free to give us some love over there on my behalf…
Remember people, this is JUST a tv show and we are NORMAL people!
Read my earlier post about Amie and I just being normal people.
