“Moments that he and I have like that are very real. I’m not somebody who can cry on command or anything like that. So whenever I’m crying — I’m also a really, really hard person. Like, I don’t cry a lot in normal life. I can count on my hand how many times I remember crying. So it’s very emotional and real when I am crying, and you know, that segment — it hurt me, because it hurts me to see my husband go through that. I’ve never been hit with a belt like that, and I don’t know what it feels like. But I can hear the noise, the one that — I wasn’t even looking when the ninth lash hit him in the back [from Wardlow], but I heard it. And I remember, I shivered when I heard it. And it just started tears in my eyes, because I knew that that had to be the most terrible thing to endure.
“And I came down to him at the ring, and the things that I said to him, I meant. If I could have taken the last one, I would have. I would have taken it, and then I would have jumped up and scratched that man’s eyes out. [laughs] Because it would have hurt so bad, that I just would have reacted and absolutely attacked somebody. But yeah, moments like that you can’t recreate because they’re real. He and I have a real natural emotional bond with each other. We’ve been through so much together in the past eight years here and everything’s just very real, and very emotional.”
