“To all the media outlets who have reached out for a quote – there’s your quote,” she continued. “I don’t care. My life is here in Oregon with my boyfriend, 6 dogs, and my new business. I smoke weed, I eat good food, and I mind MY own business.”
Ireland had kind words for her parents, writing that they “Have been very helpful in my life.” She added, “My mom has never gone a day without telling me how much she believes in me.”
“All that matters is I approve of me, and it feels d— good,” she wrote. “I am so grateful and lucky to be where I am. Thank you to those who always send me support and kind words. To those that still have a negative opinion of me, stick around. You might see something you’ll like.”
