OMG! I took a break from reading the thread for a little bit to do some dishes and while I was doing so I was thinking about all of this, word for freaking word, and I came back in still not sure if I was going to write a reply or not. But I felt like this still had not been said. Your post was the first one I read after sitting back down. I´m so happy that I´m not alone and someone else wrote down what I was thinking so perfectly.
I had started to really like Madison. At first when she was introduced on the show I didn´t think she was in Austen´s league and the cheating and hitting on Danni´s boyfriend made her seem at least not that great. But after the trip I had totally changed my mind, she was gorgeous, standing up to the guys etc. And then, like always, what goes up must come down, especially in reality tv. Her attack on Dani (I consider it a total attack on Dani, not Shep since who cares) was disgusting. And she never apologizes... What´s up with that? It´s so weird. I consider her creepy at this point. Not a villain just yet, I hope she backs down because I don´t want another villainess in the cast. I had enough with Landon and Ashley (x100 with Ashley).
I adore Patricia but she is constantly close to these awful people. She was extremely close with Thomas, then she was trying to make Landon happen (ugghhhh) and then she took Ashley under her wing. And now Madison and her are close, which does not make me optimistic about Madison´s true character.
I have no idea if the std stuff was true or not, I don´t want to know. Talking about it on camera and using it against someone like that is beyond vile. What Dani did (talked about someone in a relationship hitting on her boyfriend) can´t be compared to that in any way.
