“But what I’ve learned is that even when I’m minding my business, y’all gonna be negative AND nosey.”

“So if I can’t have peace, neither can you. I’m coming back. Cry about it.”

She added: “I’m not gonna talk about dates, direction or anything just know it’s happening and there will be a budget.”
