We commend her for using her blog - it shows she is willing to write more than 140 characters defending herself.
Current mood: annoyed
This is about the 3rd time I have had to come to my blog to defend myself when dealing with my ex. I have said over and over I do not find playing personal relations in the media anything I want to be a part of! I have taken great strides to not be a part of it or the mudslinging have tried to bite my tongue and be the one to take the higher road for some time now. AGAIN I am backed into a corner, I will not bash my ex, as that IS the father of my two children and someone regardless what he thinks, I love very much and will always love. relationships change, people grow apart and life takes you different places. No matter how close the general public may think they are to two people. you never know what truly goes on behind closed doors and it is wrong to judge on either part.
I am VERY aware that one day my children will grow up and read what is on the internet. THAT is why I have tried every avenue to stop the abusive and false accusations which only hurts them in the long run, I have also tried to change how I interact on the internet as well.
let me make something else very clear and the fact I AGAIN have to do this, is vile. I have a ZERO tolerance for pedophiles and if you touch a child in my eyes, you should be sterilized. you're rights taken away. I think it is not only ABSURD to suggest I would ever allow my child remotely near such a thing. this accusation is false and cruel and publicly damaging. not to mention I also have blogged and wrote my senators to help pass the child protection ACT.
I think running to social networks to slander others only draws negative attention, begins falsehoods for both parties. I have cooperated with my ex in every measure he has asked. I allowed my children to go on tour for 4 weeks with their father, I make visitation as easy as possible, I am even willing to take a tour bus home to ease his tensions with the children flying, a 3 days drive, I have worked with our family attorneys to sign any stipulations to put to rest any insecurities he may have, many which I believe stem from my ex's horrible plane crash and the post traumatic syndrome he suffers from.
I also have another daughter from a previous relationship before Travis, and I know what it takes to keep a child happy and healthy, well balanced and loved through a public break up. I also work with my first ex and have over the past 10 years and have never had an issue. I make great strides everyday to ensure the well being of my kids, so they can grow into confident healthy adults. I do not post pictures of my kids on the internet anymore, I keep them away from the paparazzi, I live outside of LA to give them as much "normalcy" as possible. I wish I was able to give my children the childhood i had growing up including their parents being together. Living in the spotlight and going through a divorce changes that. Such is life. I am still VERY confident in my ability to give them the well balanced, beautiful childhood they deserve, and have. Free of public humiliation and anyone who truly knows me personally or has seen me with my children knows this. I am a AMAZING mother, who loves and will protect her children fiercely! any other notion would be simply ridiculous!
Surprisingly well said.
