Reality TV Quotes

You think I killed Leita? Just let me tell you a little story here. Shortly after I was born in Sunrise to a 15-year-old single mother, they tossed us out of there like yesterday’s garbage. And as I grew older, I came to understand that my mother was driven out of town by a vicious campaign of gossip and innuendo led by her very best friend, Leita Rose. So, do I hold a grudge against Leita Rose-Blodgett? You’re damn right I do! Do I need her land? Yes. But I would never kill her for it.
