But she IS continuing with it! She still hasn't told the truth about what really happened with Sonny. She is still spewing venom and blaming Carly.
Because Carly found all the stuff that NELLE trashed and verbally attacked her. So Nelle got defensive. When people are verbally attacking you it's hard to explain anything. She actually wanted to explain that it's not how it looks, but she did not get the chance. Again, Carly should better remember that Nelle saved her daughter's life and try a different approach. Maybe then Nelle will tell her. Nelle also tried to tell Michael what really happened, but he would not listen.
