In her recent blog post, the reality star talked about going from being “America’s girl” to being portrayed as a villain. The Texas native admits to have stirred the pot but believes the backlash she has received as only made her stronger.  She wrote, “If I can be ok after the most hateful words were carelessly thrown my way by people who know nothing about my life, then you can get through the tough times and know that there is an end.”
