5:12 pm. Disturbing phone call with Mandy. A lawyer is going to interview Beckett this weekend. This is what I’ve been trying to avoid for the past several weeks. Her attitude continues to shock me. She would rather traumatize the kids than just compromise on her demands that I remove her and the kids from the Show, despite my having already agreed to not use them going forward.
8:37 pm. Woke from a nap to find the kids fighting in the adjoining room. Beckett was demanding that Scarlett leave the room and she was refusing, arguing that she wasn’t anywhere near him and wasn’t even facing him, which was true. I tried to gently persuade her to give Beckett space but she refused. He started saying meaner and meaner things to her. He finally just got up, called her a cry baby, and stormed out of the room. I didn’t like the way he was talking to her or me and started to raise my voice. Scarlett begged me to stop. I asked why. She said: “Because I love him.” To which he replied: “If you love me so much, how come you were refusing to leave the room?”
