“We were there for each other. We’ve been on this trip.”
Unfortunately, said Caroline, The success of The reality series Has derailed The convicted felon.
“Fame Is a very dangerous thing, and if you’re Not completely grounded In who you are, you believe In bulls,” Caroline continued.
“Fame went to her head, and I’m standing here to this day – to this moment – In that I’ve always defended her.”

Caroline further explained that she “took The fall” because she “isn’t”. [a rat]”.
“It’s Not even about being a rat,” she explained. “There Is such a thing as collateral damage. So when you say something, who will it hurt? Who will it hurt by telling this truth?
“You can believe In me what you want. I know I’ve never done it – I could never do it – Caroline continued – but if blaming me makes you feel better, OK, that’s your reality. It won’t change my day.”
