At the Women Tell All special, Anna apologized for making the false accusations. “Nothing I can say can justify what I did,” Anna said. “There’s no reason to ever take down another woman without thinking of the consequences, especially in that moment. It was awful and after watching the aftermath, I am a hundred times more sorry. Everything in the situation I did was wrong and I’m sorry.”
Brittany wasn’t ready to forgive Anna right away, and accused her of continuing to spread lies even after filming. “I know what I said can’t be unsaid and the damage can’t be undone, but I’d love to help repair some of that damage,” Anna insisted. “I want you to know I am 100 percent sincere when I say I am so, so sorry for that.” Brittany went on to accept Anna’s apology.
