“Hopefully I get the chance to clear things up and explain timelines, but the people in my life have already known about this,” she explained. “They’ve already known about the affair, they’ve already known about the excommunication and we’ve all had the time to process this information already.”
“It is something that I’m telling these women for the first time but it was not something that I was nervous sharing,” she continued, “because, as you’ll see throughout the season and hopefully at reunion, you’ll be able to put pieces together and I understand more so why it’s easier for me to discuss.”
And even though she was expelled from the church, she’s not opposed to her kids embracing religion.
“This is a very personal decision,” she shared. “I had religion forced on me growing up as a child and young adult and I’m taking a different approach with my children in regards to that and just supporting their feelings and how they want to do it. If they want to participate and it’s important to them, then I support that. If it’s something that they disagree with or don’t align with, then I support that as well.”
