Cast Blog: #RHOA

A Bit Much

Sheree shares her thoughts about the date with the doctor. 

 

I want to apologize for not being able to blog last week. I am just now getting over a very ugly cold! I feel much better. I also want to thank all of you for the comments, good, bad, or ugly ... I appreciate them. 

Going to Tye's seminar on last week's show was cool. It was a panel of a combination of single and married men speaking on relationships. I absolutely love to hear other people's views and perspectives on love and relationships, so I was all for going. He then announces that he has some special guest speakers, so I'm like, "Ooh yeah, more opinions and views!" Again, I love this stuff! I then hear my name! Boy was I not expecting that. While I am not so comfortable with public speaking, it was kind of fun.  

It appears that I missed quite the baby shower!  

Okay, on to this week!

Oh no, not "beef curtains." Where does she come up with this stuff?  

Phaedra, Apollo, and that pickle ... speechless, again! I think it was a unique idea, but it didn't come across so cute on TV! I think Phaedra is cool, but that just wasn't right. It did however make me go out and buy a jar of pickles. OMG, I have not had a pickle in probably 20 years. I also learned that they have zero calories, yum.

The Mothers' Day brunch was very nice. It was a chance for us girls to get together and celebrate a beautiful day ... one that should be celebrated 365 days a year.  

The discussions at the table were pretty funny. I have always been told that my facial expressions are hilarious. I don't even know when I'm doing them, so that can get me in trouble sometimes! They are a dead give away as to what I'm really thinking. Mental note: Learn to control facial expressions!

I love Ms. Joyce, she's so real and down to Earth. It was pretty shocking to hear that she and Kandi's dad have been separated since Kandi was in the 6th grade. Wow.

I'm all for being happy right now! As mothers, we sometimes make decisions based on other things or to make others happy instead of putting ourselves and our happiness first. My thought was when making my decision to divorce was that I can't truly make my kids happy if I'm not happy. That was my decision.

Kandi and the sugar, the pop rocks, all that stuff sounds like an infection waiting to happen. No thank you!

My second date with Mr. Tye was cool. I got through it! I was a little thrown off when he wanted to cook for me at his friend's apartment. Especially when he told me that he was bi-coastal and had a house here in Atlanta. So, you all know I asked him! He all of a sudden remembered that he sold it the year before. REALLY? Let me set the record straight, I totally don't mind helping my man in the kitchen. As a matter of fact I think it's cute. But from the time I walked in the door, I felt like he was putting it on a little thick. He was being a bit much on the second date, I'm thinking something was up. Not sure if it was the cameras ... well, yes I am! I couldn't enjoy the food from him taking my fork and feeding me grapes in between the spaghetti, it was too much. I felt like I was an infant. Yes, its nice for your man to feed you a couple of spoon fulls, but not almost your entire plate! Again, we had good conversation, but is that enough? I don't like things to feel forced or pushy men. If it's meant to be, it will be! We shall see.

Until next time,

xoxo

Claudia: Some People Have a Vendetta

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on the group therapy session.

Bravotv.com: Did you feel like progress was made at the therapy session?
Claudia Jordan: I do and I don't. The main people that needed it were not willing participants. One took off because she couldn't deal with hearing about how her actions affected the rest of the ladies. And the other that stayed, well… she received apology after apology without ever acknowledging any of her own wrong doing. That's not right at all. How is it that the woman on the receiving end of a physical attack has apologized to her assailant on several occasions, yet she has yet to show any remorse? That's downright insane to me! At the end of the day, there are lots of situations in this group where one can claim they were "provoked," and if the response/excuse every single time was physical violence, we'd all be in jail! And the sad thing is in this particular environment I felt that everyone else there was really ready to do the work and participate. So if ever there was a time to drop the ego and do the right thing and apologize simply for the purpose of starting the healing process for the group, then that was the time. Some people are just too stubborn and refuse to humble themselves. That happens when you are babied your entire life -- you feel like you can do no wrong. The rest of the ladies (including myself) however have all apologized and taken responsibility for contributing to the discord. But just pay attention to who never apologizes and who always does. I do not think that is because one "group" has been causing all the negativity in the group. But I do think that is because some have an agenda and a vendetta, while the other group is actually trying to make things cool and move on.


But on the flip side I will say that therapy was beneficial. In that one session we did get some good guidance from Dr. Jeff, who I would like to apologize to on behalf of the group for how he was mistreated. He came to help us and was insulted, disrespected, and his professionalism was questioned, which he did not deserve. So Dr. Jeff, I am sorry for how you were mistreated. The session did just highlight that some of us are mature and able to speak respectfully to one another, even if we have an issue with them, and some just cannot stand the sight and sound of someone we have decided not to like just because. All in all we did the best we could, and everyone who stayed did seem to really want to get along. And things were definitely better at work after the session. We were cordial and friendly.

Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to meet with Dr. Jeff one-on-one?
CJ: I have never, ever once claimed to be perfect or without flaws. And when I say I want to really resolve things, I am not just offering lip service -- I really mean it. If there is something that I am doing wrong that is contributing to any of the strife amongst the group, then I'd like to address it and do my part to work on me. I think most of us have issues with others because of past hurts that we perhaps never really dealt with and that cause us to act out in certain ways that may bother others. I am not saying I do this necessarily, but I have no problems talking to someone to at least try to be a better person. I for sure have made my share of mistakes and have experienced a lot of pain and disappointment in my life, but I've also been extremely blessed. But at the end of the day, my intention is always to grow and learn from it all and to be a better woman today than I was yesterday. Dr. Jeff is great at what he does and was for sure an asset to the group. Thank you, Doctor!

Bravotv.com: Did you and Porsha manage to get back to a better place?
CJ: It seemed that way. But I had made the decision that regardless of whether or not she was going to continue the peace treaty, that I was going to do my part to keep it cool, polite, and cordial. And so far so good.

Again I'd like to thank the fans for all their support and love and enthusiasm for #RHOA! I was in Miami Beach and Miami Gardens with the morning show this past weekend for Jazz in the Gardens, and the love I got from all the fans of the show was next level! I was truly flattered and humbled, and I will never let any of this get to my head and change me. I'm grateful to be a part of this and for all the amazing opportunities that keep sprouting from this. I just wrapped a movie called The Hills that I have a lead role in, which will be out in the fall, as well as another film called Love is Not Enough. I'm also working on a product line (to be announced soon) and more calls have been coming in from Hollywood for more great acting roles. I also had a great time with my girls in Miami and ran into a bunch of awesome people doing their thing that love the show too! I feel so rested and at peace. I'm healthy, happy, and appreciative. #ThankYouGod
