On a positive note, I like to give credit where credit is due. Some may not agree with me, but Drita deserves some credit. We seem to be seeing a new Drita. She said she wanted to stop fighting and be a better role model for her girls. So far, in the first two episodes, she is sticking to her guns. I can see her almost biting her tongue not to intervene and take sides. It’s not easy. Renee and Carla have both been good to her over the last two seasons, Carla especially. She been there for Drita at every turn. She has had her back and defended her on many occasions. All the cast members have said, no matter how they feel about Carla, they give her props for being loyal to her girl, Drita. Drita is well aware of this. At the same time, Drita knows the hell that Renee has been through and she has compassion for her. Carla seems to be on the “outs” with everyone in the cast and could use some support. So when it comes to taking sides, Drita is in a tough place right now.
I have often taken a hard stand with Drita on the blog. A large part of that was due to the fighting. I suggested anger management and then, low and behold, she went to see a therapist…not that it did any good, but she went. She did try boxing as a remedy too. But I think what really helped her was watching the show and seeing herself fighting. I think that was really the key to fixing the problem. There is nothing like watching yourself in action, doing something you don’t like, to make you want to change. I really hope she can stick to this new attitude. I like it.
Drita has a lot to be thankful for. She has a huge fan base and lots of business opportunities, thanks to the show. She has gotten her new business off the ground, and for all I know, she has or is trying to reconciled with Lee. I have heard rumors he is out of prison and they are together. If nothing else, it will give the girls a chance to spend real quality time with their father. I know how much Drita’s heart ached for Aleeya, who missed her father and couldn’t wait to see him again. As a mother, Drita comes across as very loving and there is no question in my mind that her daughters are her first priority. We even discussed that in an interview I had with her early on, before I was dubbed the “cricket.”
I really don’t know how the rest of the season will unfold. I know a lot is going to happen and Drita may be backed into a corner of having to choose sides. I am anxious to see what develops. Meanwhile they are still filming and I really hope that Drita can get through the whole season without incident. Her focus is on family and business and building that empire for her children. She seems much more relaxed and happy, and that’s a good thing. I wish her the best of luck in season three. Chirp, chirp.
