The dress had blue in it!
Hey Divas and Divos… We’re getting down to the wire in our As The Wedding Turns series!
How’d you like my entrance? My short shorts were hot, right! It was Cancun, I had to represent! Look at me on waterskis! So much fun!
So, what was up with the NeNe/Diana love pic? No, I didn’t have anything to do with it, but one eyebrow was raised. And truth be told, Diana does profess her love for NeNe so often that I’m not surprised she thought their romance should adorn the walls of NeNe’s house. I don’t care what anyone thinks, it was weird. Period!
Now, back to the beach… Yes, I did say I didn’t wear the all blue dress because Diana wasn’t going to regulate my attire. And I was wearing blue, just not all blue… Marlo is going to be Marlo every day. Those women don’t really know me. They don’t know where I come from or what I’ve been through. My dress was not an anti-NeNe statement, it was a pro-Marlo decision, just like the thousands of other decisions I’ve had to make in my life over the years. Being “extra” and fashion forward saved me. It’s been my escape for as long as I can remember and I will not apologize for that. I’ll just say that while my dress choice was an act of rebellion against Diana to a small extent, it wasn’t really about her either and I surely didn’t mean to be disrespectful to the other ladies. But I get it, my decision made me look like I wasn’t playing nice in the sandbox or being a team player. That’s not how I want to be perceived, so I had to take a step back and see their point of view as well. I should have put my personal feelings aside for this occasion and going forward I’m going to have to do better. We are all growing, and I am too, so don’t judge me until you’ve walked a mile in my stilettos.
On another more positive note, wasn’t the backdrop of the beach in hues of blue beautiful? And so was the book of sentiments by the bridesmaids. I have to give credit where it’s due, Diana did a great job organizing that night and I commend her for it. (I’m not throwing any shade after this! Lol!)
Did you see me doing my thing as the Creative Director during the dress fittings? On the finale you’ll see my handiwork all through the wedding. Believe me, I earned my title ya’ll, and I helped make the ladies stand out in their dresses because yes, NeNe is the center of attention, but she chose nine beautiful women to stand up with her and put them in custom made couture – so she wanted us to shine too. We did not let her down. You’ll see for yourself next week.
Don’t forget to tune in! Smooches!
