Heather punched Daisy in the head. You know this, so we’ll get right into our post-fight interview with Heather. (Spoiler: she cries. More than once!):
When you were punching Daisy in the head were you out of control, or what?
No! I didn’t feel out of control. I was sick and fed up. The thing is, the girl wasn’t hurt. She was out all night long after, and she made it to the airport the next day with no sleep. It’s not like I injured the girl and I was not trying to. It was just like, “God. I cannot take this person anymore.”
Tell me about your mindset going into the reunion — where you were with Daisy, etc.
I was paid to go on Rock of Love 2 and find out the dirt on these girls. When Daisy and I were sitting there talking, she told me a lot of things about herself that could not be aired. I know things about her that the public doesn’t, and I’m not going into my interviews, putting her on blast. I could completely ruin her career, and I have not done that. I went to Mexico to film a new show in February. She came down to be the interviewer. I took that opportunity to apologize to her and let her know that I felt bad that we had to meet in the situation we did, on Rock of Love 2. It’s really difficult when you’re put in those situations to come out being friends with everybody. Everybody’s in the competition alone, and they’re all going for the same guy. But I do have a heart, so I took the opportunity to let her know that I’ve moved on in my life, that Bret and I are just friends, that I have a new romance on the show I’m doing. It was cool. We were talking as chicks. I thought we were cool. And then she comes back, and she’s calling the guy I just had an interview about. She interviews him, and she’s all over him. I come back to the States and people are telling me that she’s reaching out to him online, for the world to see. I would never contact Charles. I would never return a phone call if he contacted me. I would never post anything online for the world to see me trying to get with that guy. I know they have a past together and I am not that type of person. I don’t like sloppy seconds, and I don’t like starting trouble like that in the company that we work for. So the whole reunion thing. That time in my life, I was deathly sick. If you watch the clip, my neck is completely swollen, I have no color and I had my coat on because I was freezing cold. I tried to get out of taping that reunion three different times. My throat was closed, I had the worst case of strep throat that I ever had, the worst head cold. I don’t know if it was pneumonia or what, but I was in bed for days before, doing nothing but eating tons of soup. But I didn’t want to be there anyway. I knew the girls would be mad. What am I doing there? It’s only going to be dramatic. I’m past Rock of Love. Even though that’s what’s on TV now and people think that’s what’s going on in my life, it’s not. That was last year. I’ve moved on. I just wanted to get out there and get it over with and go home. So I get out on stage and Daisy’s calling me a 30-year-old stripper, knowing that I’m the one who has two degrees, I have a two-year degree, a four-year-degree and I went to real-estate school. And I went back and quit my job last year, and she’s still stripping. It seems hypocritical. When she stood up and said, “Bitch!” that’s the problem with Daisy. She’s always in people’s faces because she’s small. She thinks that she can get away with it. You can’t go around getting into people’s faces and then crying about it and blaming it on everyone else. When she stood up, I pushed her away from me. I was so sick, I could not have anyone in my face. And then she charged me! I felt like I was defending myself. I haven’t been in an altercation like that in I don’t know how long. I don’t live my life like that. What you see on TV is me pushed to the extreme. After I left both Rock of Loves, it took me a long time. In my normal life, I lay low, I’m very chill. Hair in a ponytail, no makeup, a hat and jeans. Very casual. So this was just everything escalated. I don’t condone violence in any way, shape or form. I did not mean for that to happen. She jumped in my face, I was really sick and I had no respect for her. I mean, let’s face it: her name is not Daisy, it’s Vanessa Mossman. From the get go, the lies start. I think it’s really crappy that she has her family contacting me now. Charles is posting blogs threatening me. My family doesn’t contact her. My friends don’t contact her. It shows over and over again what kind of person she is. She’s always blaming everyone for her issues. I don’t know. Maybe she should try therapy instead of reality TV.
I think part of what made the fight so shocking is that she is really little.
That’s the thing! If I were that small, I would never, ever get in people’s faces. If you watch the show, she’s putting her face in Destiney’s face. That’s how she is. You cannot go through life like that. But I admit that you can’t go through life punching people either. This is shocking for me, too.
I know that Daisy soon returned to the stage and that, obviously, you didn’t put her in a coma, but I think what makes the footage so unsettling is the perception that she could have been hurt. Do you disagree?
I knew that I did not hurt the girl. I’ve taken kickboxing for four years. If I wanted to hurt the girl, I would have drop-kicked her up underneath and really f***ed her face up. I could have went nuts and I did not. I threw a few jabs because I was pissed because she charged me. I was sitting down and she jumped up. So because she’s small she gets away with doing s*** like that? That’s not right. I can’t help if I’m 5’6 and ¾”. Ninety percent of the public just from seeing the fight clip online was like, “Thank god, she got what she deserved.” But that wasn’t my goal. I did not go there to try to give her what she deserved. I did not go there, thinking, “I’m going to punch Daisy in the head.” I never thought it would go there. Never, ever. But when you’re deathly sick and someone’s in your face, it doesn’t matter. You’re not thinking of size. I was sitting down and she was looking over me. I wasn’t thinking about that at the time. I was thinking, “I am so sick, and this bitch is in my face.”
You haven’t been shy about discussing upcoming VH1 projects. Did this fight jeopardize any future plans?
VH1 and 51 Minds know me. I’ve worked for them numerous times. They know I’m not a violent person. I’m a very loving, loyal, good-hearted person. But I can only take so much. Believe me, I feel bad. I don’t want to get in physical altercations with people. I don’t live life like that. If I seem mouthy on TV, whatever. That’s TV. I’ve spoken with 51 Minds and they know I’m not a loose cannon. They know what was going on with my life, and they, in fact, suggested that I do [an upcoming, as-yet-unannounced show].
I just want to make absolutely sure: do you regret the fight?
Well, yeah. Of course I regret any sort of altercation like that. I don’t condone violence. I’m crushed and sad about this. I feel like if she were my height, it wouldn’t be a big deal because she stepped to me. I feel bad, because I have a heart. I don’t ever want to hurt anyone physically, and I wasn’t trying to hurt anyone physically.
My sense of the general consensus from reading comments online is that people tend to side with you.
I know, but I don’t want even one person to be upset about this. Ninety percent of the people are on my side. They see through her and they understand that I’m true and real and that I make mistakes and try to fix them and move forward in my life. They see she’s not like that. She blames me for the public not liking her. I feel bad about this fight. I’ve cried about it. [voice breaks] And I don’t want any part of the public to be upset with me. The 10 percent of the public that’s upset with me hurts my feelings, because I’m a good person.
That’s why it’s good to talk about this stuff and get it all out.
Each time I do one of these shows, these girls hate me more and more. It’s kinda scary. I feel like I’m trying to defend myself any way that I can. I’m getting threatened by Daisy’s family and friends, which is so scary. My mom is scared that someone’s going to kill me. [resumes crying] We’re grown women! Things like this happen. We need to work through this without having other people call. It only takes one person to be a crazy f***, who might have hated me from the start or was jealous, to come and kill me over this. When I get threats, it’s scary and it’s not fair.
What was Bret’s take in all of this?
Well, I don’t know if I want to get into all that. But he was definitely on my side. He knows me. I wasn’t out of control backstage or anything. Because I was so sick, I was really weak and to be honest, I can’t believe I had the energy to stand up and do all that. Big John came back and gave me a hug. They were both really understanding. I don’t want to go on the record with a direct quote. Bret and I talk about things that the public doesn’t need to know about. Ultimately, I think he appreciates the fact that I’ve really given my all, doing these shows. It takes so much out of you mentally and emotionally.
Daisy suggested a televised boxing match to resolve this. Do you like that idea?
No! That’s childish. I’d f***ing beat the s*** out of that girl and she knows it. That’s stupid.
It’s likely that you’ll cross paths on VH1 again. How can you move forward?
This is the problem! I was the bigger person. I tried. I tried to apologize after Rock of Love 2! She’s changed for the worse through fame.
Are your differences just irreconcilable? Is this someone you’re just never going to get along with?
I feel like this person is the complete opposite of me. I don’t understand her and the way she lives her life. I have tact and class. Well, maybe fighting on TV wasn’t classy, but I am. It’s hard for me to be friends with someone I have no respect for. I tried the bigger-woman route and it did not work with her. She took that and started a feud. She likes having people feel sorry for her. I guarantee that she loves this. But everything happens for a reason. Maybe we’re supposed to learn something from this, better ourselves and move forward. And hopefully we can both do that.
