Then my time in the tanning booth. . . First of all Adrienne handed me a pair of skimpy little G-string underwear that were pink and really pretty since I didn't know what to wear. Usually I tan nude, but I wanted to wear something. I just had a feeling the girls would be checking in on me. Well, we had a good laugh during my tanning when they kept opening the door while I stood there almost naked. So one side of my body got tan and the other didn't because I kept moving to the side of the booth trying to hide from them. We had a lot of good giggles. It certainly seemed entertaining for the girls, and, being a good sport, I thought it was pretty funny, too. It wasn't the most effective spray tan, but it was probably the most fun I've had joking around in a tanning booth.
We entered the spa day with the idea of experiencing healing and pampering. Adrienne provided an amazing experience to enjoy and it was a day of wonderful treatments. We were supposed to immerse ourselves in luxury and relaxation. All of a sudden we find ourselves confronted with this ongoing argument between the Richards sisters and Brandi.
Watching this episode I felt really bad for Brandi. Seeing her get upset was distressing for me because I've been there. Last year with the girls I was the outsider and nobody understood me. No one had my back. Being in that position is very difficult. Maybe was a misunderstanding or it could be that sometimes certain personalities just don’t mesh. I thought it was fine for her to try to extend an olive branch to Kyle and Kim at Adrienne's. Kim was obviously very upset with Brandi's comment about her taking a certain substance (which I don't believe she does). I can understand Kim, but I can also understand how Brandi feels. It's hard to know the right time to apologize. I am proud of Brandi for walking into the group and saying, "Listen, what should I do?" and asking for Adrienne's advice, and then going to Kyle and saying "I want to apologize for what I've said." In reviewing the episode, there should have been apologies on both sides. They all should have sat down - Kim, Kyle, and Brandi - and just talked. But Brandi did apologize. I think once you truly apologize all should be able to move on instead of keeping it going. Life's too short. Forgive and let the healing begin.
