A lot was going on this week. I loved seeing Brad style the Details shoot. I thought he did a great job. I, too, thought that coat looked like a fortune cookie. But also thought it looked just as good on both of the guys, I did not notice any change in it when Ryan put it on. But I'm sure if I was there I would have been like, "Oh, my god, it works so much better now!"
Watching some the stuff with Brad's dad was hard for me. I wish Brad was closer with his father, and I know that this isn't helped by being so far away. I was urging Brad to see him in person, because I think it's too hard and impersonal dealing with such important matters through email and on the phone. At a certain point you have to sit down together and work it out. Life is too short. And I'm Italian, I think it's important for families to stay close and work their crap out. But that's for Brad to figure out with his father in their own way, I just want to do whatever I can to support him.
Also, I want him to come back and do it again. He's Italian, too, so of course we were totally on the same page in regards to Brad and his dad. The four of us did end up having a lot of fun that night in spite of everything going on with Brad's dad. Thanks for cooking, Sal! And he made a cake!We also started planning our anniversary party this week, and you see we have finally decided to do it at home. Now I know last week you saw me saying I never wanted to do it at home, and I didn't enjoy all the planning and work that goes into it anymore. Oh my god, I was being so dramatic! Brad and I did talk a lot about where best to have the party, and I realized that I ultimately agreed with him. It's much more personal to open your home to all your family and friends. Plus, I'm such a control freak I knew I could control everything more if it was at the house. Steven is a good friend of ours and also an amazing event planner, and I knew he would get what kind of party we wanted.
And we love working with him. I had no idea he thought I had no emotions until our lunch together, but I knew what he was trying to say and thought it was really funny. I was truly stressed though when he told me he thought people were expecting "a moment" from me. I had never even considered that.
Usually, I sit at home watching reality TV and get frustrated whenever people mangle the English language, create words, and destroy expressions (I believe in this episode I also say "emotional-less" which of course is not a word, but I was joking -- although it doesn't seem that way). So I would like to unequivocally apologize to all the Housewives and bachelors and bachelorettes and teams of people racing around the world who I have ever yelled at through the TV. Today, I too, am one of you.
Next week Milan! I'm kind of excited.
Thanks for watching!
