She's been the center of controversy for weeks now but Tila Tequila has a message for her fans - and the haters: She's just an old fashioned Southern Gal from Texas!
Disgusted with the negativity she's encountered since the death of her fiancé Casey Johnson, Tila has taken to her blog to lash out at her detractors.
"I may have grown up from a poor family, but at least one thing they taught me was hard work, manners, and treating others the way you want to be treated," she wrote in a Saturday post.
"I love people, I love my fans," she added and then described a bad encounter with paparazzi who chased her and, she says almost ran her over.
Hinting at her newly revealed pregnancy she said: "I just wanted to protect my belly from being hit."
And while the paps who chased her draw her anger, Tila says not all paps are bad, including the ones who were at her house the other day. "Some.can be really nice," she writes. "And that's why I let them take pics of me."
Since Johnson's death Tila has been exhausted, not sleeping and crying that Casey's family was going to put her dogs to sleep after they got them from Tila.
The family now says they will not do that.
