Joey: When Singles Camp Hands You Lemons...
Joey Lauren commends Ashlee's reaction to their diverted weekend plans.
This show keeps me laughing! Especially Chanel. Pure entertainment! Let’s go #Princesses Long Island!
It’s such a cool experience to have you, the viewers and readers, share your thoughts about the show. And for the record, I tend to agree with 99.9% of you! The show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? had it right – the audience speaks the truth, and you’re a lifeline!
This week on the show, Ashlee, Casey, Chanel and I go to singles sleep away camp -- TRUE STORY! I was beyond excited for the trip because I love outdoor activities! (If you caught Episode 1, I was the one who caught the football while jumping into the pool… just saying!). Along those same lines, some of you may have seen on Bravotv.com our Princess wiffle ball session outside of South Hampton Social Club. If not, watch HERE. Obviously I would much rather play physical sports than be involved in the “sport” of gossiping.
So, back to sleep away camp. The car ride was a prime example of me knowing when to keep lips zipped. Don’t get me wrong -- I’m all for off-color commentary and sexual innuendos. The part of me that you don’t see in the car only comes out when I’m super uncomfortable. I guess pervert is my default self-defense mechanism. You will see what that means in future episodes! After all my ExciteMint to get out and go to camp, when we found out that the camp was canceled, it was such a bummer. But when something is out of your control, you just can’t fight it. It’s life! Every now and then, it hands you lemons. The key is knowing how to make a SkinnyGirl lemonade cocktail from them!
Ashlee did just that when we got to the local bar. She took the bull by the horns and really embraced the situation! I love when she lets loose, and boy, can she be aggressive?! When that girl wants something, there is no stopping her -- I love that quality in her! That girl has confidence and we should all learn from it! It got her the hot bartender (and notice: she didn’t call daddy!) She was just joking around with him and having fun, being carefree, and it worked! You go, girl!
Speaking of "you go, girl," I’m so glad Casey was also able to let loose! Not! She actually said that it was her type of scene too! I couldn’t tell, could you? I actually kind of felt bad leaving her alone at the bar to dance with Ashlee, which is why I kept going back to check on her and make sure everything was OK because it surely didn’t feel that way. Maybe her bulletproof vest was too snug? We’ve got to get her to loosen up some. Last week, I drafted Chapter 3 of my book and included how I learned the skill of forgiveness. Hopefully, someday I can share my life lessons with all of you, and maybe even Casey! So she can learn how to forgive!
Hope you enjoyed my recap! I can’t wait for next week!
I also wanted to congratulate winner @Chrisosmore for participating in my @ainsworth park NYC dinner giveaway contest! Remember, Chris, to keep me posted on when you collect! Maybe this Princess can pop in and say “Hello!” #kamkam. I love to spoil my fans -- probably because I’ve never been spoiled.
I will be doing another gift giveaway in two weeks so make sure to tell your friends and get them involved -- you may need their help with this one! You’ll see! #KAMKAM Joey Lauren
