So my episode of All on the Line aired. Luckily it wasn't half as bad as I thought it'd be. I was really happy to finally see it and close the book on a stressful chapter of my life.
Then this happened http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/2011/05/all-on-the-line-season-1-episode-7-leila-shams.html
Noooooo! So embarrassing! I know this is naive but I assume people take reality shows with a grain of salt. When Bethenny Frankel talks about having a horrible childhood I google her parents (she didn't). My mom of course does not make my clothes, I've sold thousands of units. They're made in a factory in India (except the leather which is made in NY). She just helps me alter the sales samples when they come in. How do people think my mom made the beaded skirt or the embroidered dress? I've been in the industry for 13 years, Harvey Nichols, Curve, Elyse Walker, and Forward by Revolve have bought my line, Ke$ha, Keri Hilson, Fergie, and Kim Kardashian wear my clothes. And I bought my own fucking apartment. You can call me tacky all day long but don't call me dumb.
Anyway I'm so glad I read that post because it made me realize how upsetting it is to have people you don't know say mean things about you. I don't want to be one of those people. When I responded to the comments on the site in a positive way everyone was positive back. Negativity breeds negativity and vice versa. The bitchiest girl I know is also the least happy and least successful. So no more nasty posts! Honestly it's kind of a cop out - it's very easy to be entertaining when you're being a cunt.
