Just Being Honest
Lisa ponders Taylor's marriage, and the white party.
First and foremost, I would like to wish you all a happy New Year! I spent mine in the Bravo clubhouse witnessing the marriage of the Gigster to Grandma Wrinkles!
But yes it's so good to be back, so this week it was party, party, party!
We start in our rose garden. There I was cutting roses, one of my favorite pastimes and essential jobs, but with my husband on my case about the eviction of Cedric, the experience was not quite so pleasant. He is becoming increasingly frustrated by his actions, and rather irritated with his relaxed attitude about looking for somewhere else to live. It has become a constant source of aggravation for Ken, and I suppose in a way for both of us. However when somebody doesn't really have another option it is difficult to push the situation…but it has been over a year.
Kyle was intrigued at Pandora’s party about Cedric’s life, and asked many questions and listened intently to the stories of his troubled past. But I know Kyle is not a huge fan of his, as she has warned me to be careful and skeptical as to the validity of his experiences. We will see as only time will tell.
Pandora’s boyfriend Jason started to make a speech and I waited with bated breath for the proposal that would make us all so happy....nothing! I don't want to put pressure on them, scratch that, of course I do! I adore the way they act together our families have become entwined in each others lives in the last few years.
Oh well I live in hope!
Mauricio’s party was a fabulous night, but it really demonstrated the incredible disconnect between Russell and Taylor.
He just seems so uncomfortable in these situations, and she appears to be hankering for something that may just be unattainable in her marriage. At what point does one say this is the way that person is and it's an impossible task to change them? I don't know, we shall see how this plays out, I personally am not too optimistic about the ultimate outcome in regard to Taylor having the kind of relationship that she so desperately desires.
Somebody's character is hard to mold to suit your own requirements. Normally in a social situation one would just accept that, but here in this arena we are asked to be honest and open with our thoughts.
I sometimes find that difficult, maybe going back to my British upbringing and our reluctance to display our emotions, but it begs the question how much do we compromise in order to live the life that we dream of.
All these unions and relationships change, progress, or deteriorate and that's what makes reality television so fascinating--that you witness, like a fly on the wall, the happiness or in some cases, the ultimate demise of, some of these situations.
Keep watching. I love your comments and will see you next week.
