I mean, what was the most challenging for thing for you this season? The most challenging thing for me this season was, um, I actually, you know, had some issues emotional with my husband, um, in public that I normally don't do. I think the whole season was about personal relationships, and it's some stuff that I really, you know, But on my authentic stuff. And I think dealing with that in front of everybody was difficult. Yeah. Everybody go through stuff like that was difficult, right? I mean, what kind of ups and downs do we see you and go through this season? Um, you know, coming out of a pandemic we've gone through, You know, we were renovating my house together. Um, I was writing the book. I think he he would like me to slow down, even though he's super supportive. And, you know, I can air my frustrations. I am a type A personality. And I think, um, you know, sometimes I'm not as patient as kind as I could always be. Yeah. And so it was hard for you to kind of put this out in the public for everybody. Yeah, I think you know I'm my self 2024 hours a day, seven days a week and cameras, no cameras. I'm the same person. And I think, you know, people will sometimes see me crack. And, you know, I could crack with anybody, right? Human, right? We're human. It's so true. I mean, that was hard. Yeah. I mean, are you nervous about watching back anything about this season? No, no, no. I don't think I've ever had a season where I'm nervous about watching anything back. I loved it. So I get the same anxiety is when I lived in. But it's not that I get nervous, right? What was it like writing your book and then also filming the show? Like you said, You you kind of pulled in so many different directions. So, I mean, what was that experience like for you? Um, that was very therapeutic and stressful at the same time. I enjoyed so much writing my book. I was writing it with this woman, Emily. But she's my my co writer, reberg together. And I was remembering things I totally forgot about. You know, there's 20 chapters only true about my life now, 18 chapters about things people don't even know about me about business, about things with sexual harassment, you know, very pertinent topics today that happened so long ago about my first marriage, my Children, everything else. So it was very therapeutic and cathartic and painful all at the same time. So I think that's why I was super emotional as well. Sure. I mean, what was the most painful thing for you to kind of relive in this book then? The most painful thing? Um, you know, I think the dissolution of my first marriage because I had a beautiful family and a rough marriage, and it was just, you know, just realizing there was so many beautiful things that we have a great relationship, my assistant. Also, there was a lot of crazy things that happened to me in business and so not so great men that I work with That did very inappropriate things to young girls, me being one of them. And I think everyone is going to read that. And I'm sure many women have the same experience. But I was too afraid to speak up. And even if you did speak up at that time, it wouldn't have made a difference, right? Well, I'm looking forward to reading it. I know it's probably a very therapeutic experience
