Courtney explains how she made the best of all the stressful situations this week.

"Let's Just Make the Most of It"

When it comes to life and rough situations, my mother taught me one valuable lesson: MAKE THE MOST OF IT… And in tonight's episode of Courtney Loves Dallas, you see me do just that in several rough situations.

Let's walk through them, shall we?!

Rough Situation #1: The Matt Drama

Exes really know how to suck the life out of you, don't they?! And when it comes to playing with your emotions, they are quite genius. At the end of last week's episode, y'all were left with seeing me walk away from Matt Nordgren after he told me that we had "nothing." And I was happy with that decision. I had gone to dinner with the attitude of "let's MAKE THE MOST OF IT," and when I felt defeated, I exited. And I could've left it that. But one would think that when he chased me and then called over, and over, and over again that I would crumble and be putty in his hands again…BUT NO. Not only was I emotionally exhausted, but I was embarrassed… embarrassed that I hadn't seen him before for what he really was: Matt was all talk and no action. I had given him years of my life and I was done. D.O.N.E. And at that point there was nothing left to do than say goodbye.

Rough Situation #2: Bauble Bar Presentation

When it comes to work, I am typically great at leaving my personal life at the door, but coming off the heels of the Matt drama, I was flustered and overwhelmed, and in over my head…but thank God I hired my new assistant, Shannon, at the perfect time! She was really able to step in and help me reign it all in and stay organized for my big Bauble Bar presentation! I had been asked to create "mood boards" to present the collection via Skype (mind you I had no idea what a "mood board" was and still, quite frankly, have no idea!) but there was no way I could've made them all in such a short time frame (mind you: Mom's surgery recovery, the Matt dinner, and the Bauble Bar presentation were all within about 72 hours!). Despite my lack of creativity and artistic ability, I was hoping I could talk enough to distract them from the mess that was my "mood boards"…God might not have blessed me with the ability to draw, but he certainly blessed me with the ability to talk…so what else is there to do than MAKE THE MOST of what you've got! And that's exactly what I did, and thankfully, it worked!

Rough Situation #3: Girls Trip to Marfa

After the hellish week I had (Mom's surgery, Matt dinner, Bauble Bar stress, etc.), a girls’ trip with my best friends was exactly what I needed to revitalize and get my head back on straight -- good idea, Tori! Marfa was a small town in Texas that I had seen pictures and read stories about, but honestly when we got there, I felt like I had dragged the girls 8 hours away for nothing. Thankfully, despite the bicycle debacle and the awkward dinner, the Prada exhibit was the icing on the cake to make everything better! And honestly, I had my 3 best friends, no responsibilities, and no babies, so it was the perfect opportunity to, yep, you guessed it: MAKE THE MOST OF IT!

 

So there's only 2 episodes left of Courtney Loves Dallas, but still so much more to come! Stay tuned to see how the Bauble Bar collaboration turns out…find out about another job that I get to add to my already busy plate…plus, see what happens when things get heated during a fight with Tori!

Courtney: "The Botox wasn't Intended to Offend Her"

Courtney dishes on the blowout with her bestie.

"Is change always a good thing?"

Change…

As a woman who always has my career in mind, it’s inevitable. And in this episode, we see that change in my life is on the horizon -- and not always in the good way.

My career is really blooming, and I couldn't be happier. Thank God Matt is finally behind me, and I am looking forward at the new changes that are happening for me: The blog is beginning to really gain some momentum, the collection with Bauble Bar is locked down, my assistant is working really hard for me, and an additional new job as a morning talk show host is in the works. I AM BUSY, AND I AM HAPPY.

But I must admit, I have never been good at balancing it all.

In my perfect world, everything would seamlessly come together: I would find a rhythm between all of my commitments and no part of my life would get neglected…but that's easier said than done!

In this episode, we see a major change happening in my relationship with Tori, and unfortunately it was a change that I never saw coming. During this time in my life, I was SO OVERWHELMED. There weren't enough hours in the day. I was saying "yes" to everything: "Yes, I will be a blogger. Yes, I will host a morning talk show. Yes, I will do a jewelry collaboration with Bauble Bar. And, yes, Tori, I will throw your birthday party." I truly believed I could handle it all.

When I took Tori for "Birthday Shopping" and "Birthday Botox," I truly thought that was going to be fun for her. We love to shop, we love to pamper ourselves, and so I genuinely thought she would enjoy those moments of me treating her to them… And honestly, the botox wasn't intended to offend her. Most gals with a wrinkle or 2 would love to get rid of that frown, right?!

Unfortunately, this photo shoot with Casey, an LA based photographer, had been scheduled for months, and it happened to fall on the night of Tori's birthday party. He was in town for one day, and I wanted to take advantage of it. In my mind, we would shoot some pictures that morning and early afternoon, and then I would meet up with Tori and the girls in time for the party that night. Sounds like a plan, right?But Tori wasn't having it, and quite frankly, I was shocked…and here's why: Tori had always been the friend who was 100% supportive of my career. She understood that it came before anything else…and I mean ANYTHING. So I realistically believed that she would understand that this photo shoot was work and that it was one of those things I couldn't change, but that I was sorry.

Never in million years though did I expect Tori to let me have it and use my work against me when she came to see me at the photo shoot. I was furious that she had the audacity to scream and yell at me when I was in the middle of working. I understand where she was coming from looking back at the situation, but I still don't think that it was the appropriate time or place to have that conversation. But when she opened that can of worms, IT WAS ON. At that moment, I knew our relationship had changed somehow…somewhere along the line she changed from supporting my career to using it against me…and how could I fix it?!

 

And let me tell you, it gets uglier before it gets better… Be sure to stay tuned for the season finale of "Courtney Loves Dallas" next Thursday to see how it all goes down with my best friend, Tori!
