Chicago, Home Sweet Home, sort of

We are finally at my lake house in Lake Forest! We had our book tour stop in Pittsburgh this morning. I was surprised at how big the crowd was. I was very happy to see so many folks and get to spend a lot of time with them. We went over by a full hour, again. Everyone was so nice. We even decided to do a Facebook Live from inside the book store to let everyone see what they were missing out on. We had a small dance party going at one point and we had some really interesting questions.

Today the topic of tabloids came up and it was also a hot topic on Twitter. If you read my Twitter feed? or is it Twitter Timeline? Whatever it is, if you read it, I retweeted what Rebel Wilson was talking about today. She sued a tabloid that printed a bunch of lies, they won the case, they have to pay her millions and they are taking her back to court to appeal the financial amount of her case. She will win that too because they were found GUILTY.

So today I was asked why I never sold my stories, my photos, or my anything to the tabloids.

From our side, we had Kendra and Lindsay working the tabloid media like 2 championship boxers. Lindsay would get the info from her friends, she would feed it to Kendra. Kendra has been aligned with tabloids for years, and she would sell the stories we wanted out there. We had 12 cover stories, 24 inside the magazine stories, and numerous blog articles talking about me and my affair with Meri for over 2 years. When Robyn sent Kendra and cease and desist letter they stopped. Kendra still continues to get a story here and there into a magazine but she now publishes it under an “inside source” or a “close family friend” label. Lindsay is no longer helping or working with her on those things. If you read Kenda’s Twitter or her Facebook group you see her side of things. Robyn screwed her over by not paying her for designing and working on the tshirts Robyn sells on her website. She also stuck Kendra with a very heavy tax bill that Robyn was supposed to pay. She also lied and said that Kendra was not telling her the truth.

Well the truth is Robyn was on a 3 way call with Kendra and myself WITHOUT my knowledge. That’s illegal. She can’t do that. My lawyer is looking into that because we are pretty sure that Robyn recorded it. I’m glad she did because she KNOWS who I am, she heard me talking, she knows more than the truth on this whole thing. She has to “protect her family”. That’s her position now. Kody told her to stop talking to Kendra and made both Meri and Robyn block Kendra’s calls. He wants to control those women and he intimidates them into doing what he wants. He is very abusive. Robyn knew about the affair. She didn’t like it and she just didn’t say anything to Meri or Kody about it until Meri had her “confessional” meltdown one weekend at a hotel. Meri and Robyn waited an entire week before they told Kody about the affair. That gave them 1 week to come up with this bullsh** LIE story that I catfished her. It’s 10000000000% a lie. That never happened. I did not catfish her. I’m not a girl. They decided that would be the only way to save the marriage with Kody, save the show, and to try to turn all of the embarassment back on me. What they didn’t expect was me to release over 300 voicemails that clearly proves my truth Lol She can not lie away the 1 voicemail where she says “Laying here with you…..” We were in bed together. She proved that in her own words in a voicemail to me that was on my phone. That makes it my property and NOT ILLEGAL for me to share.

I explained all of that to get to this point. The tabloids hounded me for over a year. They tried everything to get me to talk to them. They offered me $10,000. Then when I released those first 6 voicemails, they offered me $25,000. When I posted the nude photos behind my locked and passworded post they offered me $50,000.

I COULD HAVE sold myself out. I could have sold Meri out. Why didn’t I? Because she would have lost her show and lost any income she had. I didn’t want to hurt her in that way. I could have. Believe me I thought about it really hard but the ultimate choice was for me to say No Thanks. And that’s why there has NEVER BEEN a tabloid interview with my name attached followed by my comments. Never.

When you do that, the tabloids pay you and make you sign a paper saying that they own your story. This means I could no longer blog or make ANY comment about this affair to anyone. They would have bought my side of things and I lose all control.

No thanks to that!

This is my story for me to share. Not for a tabloid to edit and make it into something it’s not. I have never wanted to be famous. I only got famous because all of you, my loyal readers, kept looking me up. Because of you guys talking about me, people wanted to know more about me. They found my blog and started listening to the voicemails. They looked at the photos I posted and saw that I was telling the truth. Then they watched that god awful show and saw that what I was posting 4 weeks in ADVANCE of the episodes lined up with everything I said, except 1 huge false storyline. The catfish. Her own viewers saw Meri lying. They saw the family started to not believe Meri at all. And finally they saw Meri’s own daughter not believe a word she said about the affair. That’s because I spoke with Mariah via email first and then later on, on the phone. She KNEW. I told her. I sent her things that NO ONE else had seen or knew about other than Lindsay. I proved it all and she turned on her mom. To this day she won’t trust her. I told Mariah that her mom would never tell the full truth because she can’t. Kody would throw her out with no money and nowhere to go. She would lose everything and everyone. The only way she could stay in the family is if she continued to publicly lie about me.

She just forgot one small problem. She continued to contact me Lol And I kept the voicemails. I kept the texts. I kept the photos of our dinners together…..AFTER all of this story died down. We still talk, not that often. We still see each other but we no longer have sex or any form of intimate relationship.

Tomorrow at my hometown book signing event the final pieces of the puzzle will be released. My Batfans deserve to see the photos of us together. And that wish will be granted. I do realize what will happen. It won’t happen right away but it will happen soon. All I can say is Meri should have told the truth like I did. She should have offered proof. She has never offered anything but her ever evolving stories and lies about me and Lindsay.

So tomorrow we will show the fans what they want. Proof of us together. Proof in photos of us kissing. And proof of our intimate laying in bed half-naked and looking very happy and sweaty. Proof. Truth. That’s all I’ve ever been about when it comes to this story. My proof. My truth. My side. I don’t have a tv show to sit there and bash her for 2 years straight. All I have is this blog and my social media accounts. Looks like my popularity has gained a lot more viewers than she has lost Lol

I’m happy to answer questions. I’ve only asked for the questions to be interesting and asked nicely. Tomorrow is going to be a very fun day. I’ve waited a very long time for this and I’m happy it’s finally coming out.

See you guys tomorrow! We will be downtown Chicago from 10am until noon and then we are meeting my friends for a very nice lunch. I can’t wait to see everyone.

Love you guys!

Randita’s FTW

  Hello from Pittsburgh!

For lunch we are going to go eat at Randita’s vegan restaurant. This should be fun. I’m pretty sure no one else is vegan but I told them I’m sure they will find something they like there. We shall see. It’s me and 5 others. After lunch we are going to tour the building site they are pitching to me. They want to expand their dry cleaning business by manufacturing their own chemicals. They use all green and organic supplies which is amazing. It’s also a sustainable building they want to have. I’m all for that.

I’m excited to check it all out. The presentation yesterday was very well put together like the informational prospectus they sent with me last night. I read almost all of it and I think it’s a good idea to invest in this. I would be a 50% partner. And with my investment help I will own 50% of the new building and 50% of all expansions they add. I do not get any of the 3 dry cleaners they already have and run. That is actually very smart in case something happens they will always have those 3 to lean on.

I will take all of the info and go into work tomorrow with it. I have to talk things out, have our accounting department verify the numbers with the city and then we start looking at the contract. My legal department which consists of 4 lawyers are sharks and they take their sweet time pouring over every line. I like that but I’m also impatient. I suppose over the years they have saved me from making any huge mistakes and that’s why we have loyalty throughout the entire company.

I’m only interested in businesses were I can buy the building or at least buy half. If people are unwilling to include their building I don’t even take the meeting. There’s no point in doing business where I can stand to lose all of my money. I prefer to at least be able to get half of the building if things don’t work out. It’s very lucrative and easy. No real hard work on my part and a lot of traveling around the country. Being a pilot that’s the dream. Have a job where I have to fly different places and often. Except in the winter. I don’t fly when it’s snowy, icy, or in bad inclement weather. I’m smarter than that and I also know my limits. There’s no need for me to risk myself or anyone with me just to go somewhere. I won’t do it.

I hope today goes by fast. Yesterday went very fast. I plan to be home in time for supper. I have missed my wife next to me all night and my boys little faces to smooch on when they wake up. I miss being home.

This weekend I’m told the girls have all voted to go up to the Lake house because there  are some good sales at the malls in Wisconsin. So we will go there and check things out.

It’s going to grow, I swear

Last night after work my wife took me on a garden date. I had no idea what she meant but she literally meant a garden. As in she wants our landscaper to add a garden to the lake house and do all of the work on it. She wants to go out and help and also learn how to grow things from an expert. Mr. Wong is our landscaper and he is amazing. Very sweet guy he has had his company for years and really does a great job keeping our yard looking great. He always makes sure to clean up sticks or anything off of the beach before we arrive on Friday nights. He also emails us ideas he wants to try out. I pretty much have given him carte blanche to do anything he wants. I fully trust in his vision for our property.
We met him at the garden place? Center? I have no idea. It was this big tunnel like thing that led into a big terrarium. Inside were all kinds of flowers, fruits, and veggies plants starting to grow in these black plastic containers. We were supposed to pick out what we wanted him to plant when the weather turned better. I guess he has to order things far in advance so they can make sure they have enough. I didn’t even think about any of that. So we held hands and she basically pointed at what she wanted. She took off with him and I just started snapping pictures of what she picked out. It looks colorful. I think my boys will like that. And I asked him if he would put in a fence all the way around it to keep my dog out of there. Sam jr is a digger. He would go right in there and dig up everything. He buries his bones and we have found some crazy things he has buried in the yard. It’s pretty funny to see him out there trying to throw dirt up to get something in a hole. Then he uses his nose to push it all back in as soon as he deposits his treasure. I just don’t want my wife to get all of this stuff planted with Mr. Wong and my dog destroys it. That would not be cool at all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They figured out a game plan. He had his Ipad and some app thing that showed a variation of our yard design and all he needed was to figure out where to put the garden for the most sun exposure. He has been wanting to do this for years but I always told him no. I’ve had this house for 9 years now and I’m good with having the lawn mowed. I said yes to whatever he wanted, gave him my card and he came back with my card and receipt. It really didn’t cost that much either. Most plants were about $3.50 each. I fell asleep last night trying to picture what the yard and garden will look like in a few months. He said he can’t plant anything just yet but as soon as he can then he will pick up our order and bring his team over for a full weekend of fun. Oh boy, have at it Lol I will enjoy watching you from the sidelines and really enjoy all of amazing things he grows for us to eat.
I’m getting ready to go to the airport. My flight leaves at 9:30 and I still need to put somethings in my bag. I’m going to Pittsburgh for 2 days. Wish me luck.
Have a great Tuesday everyone!

I wrote this one yesterday but didn’t get time to post it. Being out of town keeps me busy because the people I’m meeting with feel obligated to show me around and take me to meals. Very nice of them. I got back to the hotel around 1 this morning and am just getting around. Our next round of meetings start at 11am and will conclude around 5pm today. Then I can go home. I bought some souveniers for my family and can’t wait to sleep in my own bed tonight. I will update more later.

Pittsburgh Day, Chicago Night

pittsburgh   Greetings from Chicago. I went to Pittsburgh yesterday for a meeting and then I was finally able to stick around a little and check out the sites. It was fun. I learned a lot and have a whole new respect for the foundations and history of Pittsburgh.

I don’t even want to talk about the Bears game. Geez. What else could possible happen this season? So many key players out with injuries. A QB1 and QB2 that aren’t getting the ball down the field. It’s been frustrating. 0-3. Not a good start at all.

But how about them Cubs! Looking good and getting ready for some post season action. The final home stand was fun to watch. I’m going to wait a little while before trying to get some post season tickets for me and Josh. Cam said he had fun at the game we went to but that was enough. Figures. It’s me and Josh from now on. The girls were both embarrassing and divas. They can go to games with their friends from now on.

It’s a little chilly in the mornings now. My morning workouts and runs are going great. I’m getting excited. The big Marathon is coming up! I registered under the best Marathon name ever. It cracks me up. I can’t wait to see my finish line photo with my Marathon name on the photo. You can purchase them right after the race. They also put your time on it. How cool is that! I bought a fitbit just for that race. To see how I do. I also bought new shoes last week and I’ve been breaking them in. It’s feeling pretty good. I think I’m ready to go. I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life. 6’6″ and a lean 175 pounds right now. I float between 185 and 175 anyway. I’m eating healthy, I’m hyrdating a lot. And I have been doing a great job on my warmup stretches and cooldown stretches. I don’t see any flaw in my training. I feel proud and ready to go.

Work is going great. We are set to close out the 3rd quarter and in a few weeks we will know what our profits are. I’m excited. Lindsay wants her bonus. She gets them twice a year according to her contract and she’s already texting me to just direct deposit her bonus in her bank account. I asked how did she know she even earned it and she just laughed and said silly boy then hung up on me. She has been doing very well. She goes to Mexico a lot. She goes to LA a lot. She is keep the West Coast busy and happy. I think she has finally calmed down a little. Well at least in her professional life. On weekends she still parties too much. She has not been drinking according the Peyton and Sarah. They both have vouched for her on that. It’s been interesting.

My twins are growing like weeds. Everyday it’s something new with them. A new facial expression, a new thing they discover. They are soaking up everything. Last night I took them out in their stroller so I could walk my dog. As soon as my dog started doing his business they both cracked up laughing. Apparently it’s funny. It made me laugh too. They both still have that baby smell that someday I’m going to miss a lot. For now I’m enjoying every second I have with them and praying to God our lives are all healthy and happy. I am truly blessed with them in my life. Twins is not easy at all. I wouldn’t change it for the world. It has made me a much better and stronger man. I’m still working on my patience and my coordination. Trying to carry 2 babies is a little hard sometimes. I’m getting better. Diapers, no problem. I remember changing their diapers for the very first time. My hands were shaking. The nurse was helping me out and she said don’t worry you’ll do this about 5000 more times and you won’t remember how nervous you were. Well I did remember. And I got it right. Little did I know the first few months that would be my only job with them Lol Either changing them or carrying out a giant diaper genie bag of bad diapers. Yuck. Someday they will be potty trained. I can’t wait.

Eating is going well. No first tooth yet. I bet Drew Heston gets his in first. He picked Alex. That will be $50 and an I Told you So coming soon. I know Heston will get in a tooth first. They are both drooling like crazy and the baby books all say that’s a big sign it’s happening. Geez, my babies with teeth. This is going too fast!

I’m doing great. I am no longer dating anyone. I just like my life as is for now. I tried it, it didn’t go anywhere because I wouldn’t let it and I’m happy. At least I got back out there and know I can handle it. And I’m ready. Right now I’m focused all on my boys. And I don’t want to take any time away from them to go on a date. The lunch stuff was fine. But I can have lunch with my friends. It doesn’t need to be a date. So that’s on the shelf once again for a while and I really am happy I am making the right choice. When God wants my next girlfriend to show up in my life it will happen. I’m not looking for it at all.

I am happy. I hope everyone could be as happy as I am. Things are great and I can not wait to tell you guys what my babies will be dressed as for Halloween. It will be awesome!

Have a great week. I love ya’ll and I will update more later.
