It Wasn’t Your Fault

Content warning: In this episode I discuss sexual assault.

If this is triggering to you, if it’s not the right time to listen, please make sure you take care of yourself. Listen to it later or skip it.

As many of you know, I absolutely love Bravo. It’s my escapism and one of my favorite ways to unwind. Earlier this month, Bravo aired one of the most important episodes they’ve ever had. It affected me in a big way and I have to talk about it.

If you are a woman who has suffered from the shame of what happened when you were blackout drunk, then I hope you find solace and healing in this episode. I sure know I have. 

If you don’t watch Bravo, watch Below Deck Down Under, check out Season 2, Episodes 6 & 7 to get caught up: https://www.bravotv.com/below-deck-down-under/season-2/episode-6/all-wrong

    What a powerful statement: Women should be allowed to get blackout drunk without fearing for our safety. I tell my daughter often, that drinking/getting drunk can put you in some very dangerous and unacceptable situations and to really remember that. And your words were very powerful in this episode. While it is a very tough topic, it is a very important one to discuss and shed light on. Thank you so much as always for your transparency and vulnerability Suzanne…love you so much!
