Jill is her own worst enemy. No one can do to her what she does to herself.
Jill: I'll be your 5th media consultant: (and I'm advising for FREE)
1. APOLOGIZE. You haven't yet. An apology does not include the word "but". There is no justifying the behavior you are apologizing for. Let me get you started .... "Alex, I apologize for my digs about your family and for running away from you when you tried to have an adult conversation with me. I am now aware of my wrongs, and will endeavor to avoid this type of behavior in the future." You might also try that with all of your cast mates. Rewatch the season, take notes on your digs, and make amends. It would be so worth it.
2. STAY OUT OF THE MEDIA. Your show is done, over, and nothing you can do now will make up for the abhorrent behavior we witnessed during the season. No more interviews, no more Facebook, no more book reviews. If you attend a book signing and someone addresses this issue, admit that your behavior was beneath you and change the subject.
3. Record yourself as you go along your day, then have an objective person you trust listen to the tape and point out every negative comment you make about others. This is especially appropriate if you go to someone else's event. Practice the Positive. If you can't say something nice, keep your trap shut.
4. NO MORE EXCUSES, "This is me, I can't change." If this is so, say goodbye to your public. Expect your book sales to suffer (which affects both your mother and sister), and Zarin Fabrics to lose customers. I don't believe Zarin would ever go out of business, but why on earth would you make Bobby share your consequences.
