“I know it’s been a while since I posted, and there’s been a lot of talk about everything that’s happened recently, but unfortunately, right now, I’m not in the position to comment, but there will be a time when I can, and I intend to be open, honest, and authentic. Right now, I’m focusing on getting healthy and getting back to myself and walking. Archie.”
