Jill is very outspoken so I expect she will need no prompt her. Some of you seem okay with Mayte talking but not anyone else.

I don't speak for everyone. So I'm not against/for Mayte or Jill talking.
I'm a bigger Jill Jones fan, I don't dislike Mayte, but I just wasn't a big Prince fan during the 90s.
I was a HUGE Prince fan during the 80s ie pro-Jill Jones.
My concern is that I want her to be respectful of herself and not let others pull her into disrespecting others. She put that post up on her facebook for a reason.

.
And I was directly a target of people manipulating her(yes she is grown and needs to own it) but it was clear that people on the org that had an issue with me ... took advantage of the whole distraught period and got her riled up about something she and they did not understand, while she just received news of the death of another family/friend.

.

Attacking other people doesn't shine, in the long run it doesn't make anyone relevant, and just distances people. Especially if others are not attacking, or tearing anyone down.

.

She was at the other tribute show with Apollonia and Susan Moonsie and I hope she enjoyed it and is able to release heal and celebrate, and not let that other stuff smear her brand.
