Christie often talks about how "compassionate" she's become since being in the SOH, as if she considers it her single most identifying trait. She mentions it over and over...she said she feels such "compassion" for her mother, she said she had so much "compassion" for Kim, and for Cassie's story. Everytime a new HG arrives to tell their story, Christie feels so much "compassion" for them. She chose a symbol of "compassion" for her henna tattoo today.
So do y'all think Christie has really become a compassionate person, or is she just using the SO-speak she's learned while in the SOH to disguise the same selfish, judgemental Christie?
I find it ironic that today when discussing the 5K with Rhonda, Christie acted soooo into helping others change their lives, yet she is so hesitant to take any responsibility for her young brother, who is stuck with their homeless, drug and alcohol-addicted mom. Didn't Christie expect pity, "compassion" and help for dealing with this exact same situation? But she is considering leaving her brother in that situation because it's time to do things for herself, and live her own life? Like what? Launching a futile attempt at a career as a "supermodel"?
Anyway, if Christie sought guardianship of her brother, wouldn't she look almost as bad as her mom "on paper"?? Fresh out of rehab and a stint on a reality tv show, with a history of violence, and drug and alcohol abuse? (and apparently no "regular" job.)
