I just want to start out by saying the final episode was so beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes. The wedding was spectacular and elegant. Lisa said she did not spend a million dollars, but it surely looked like a million dollar wedding. Of course the flower arrangements were stunning with all the roses. The cake was exquisite. The table settings were remarkable. The band was fantastic and very entertaining. Everyone was dancing. What a celebration! It was so sweet to see the expressions on Lisa and Ken's faces. Ken stood there as a father with so much pride, and Lisa was in tears at times, but also with a big smile on her face. She was so happy and so emotional and so proud of her daughter. You could really see the love between the whole family. To share their moment was so touching. I'm so happy for Pandora and Jason. I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.
In review of the season it amazes me that back at Kyle's séance, the psychic said several things about a hunk coming into my life. I didn't think too much about it. She said there's a "hunk-a-hunk of burning love coming into your life." I was thinking, "No, that is impossible" because, at the time, I didn't have much interest in dating. Later on I was introduced to Dimitri through mutual friends. As you can see from Dimitri's photo, he's very much into fitness. He takes care of his body and he's educated. So how wonderful is that? A man that's physically and mentally fit. It works for me!
Upon seeing Taylor at Kyle's I wasn't sure how she was going to react to me. I knew that at Sur we had all basically said our "sorrys," and after she explained everything that she had gone through, her behavior seemed more clear. When she arrived at Sur I could see through her makeup there was a bruise under her eye. It broke my heart. That's when I realized that all of this other stuff was just petty nonsense. We had to let go and really be there for one another. It's so horrific what she went through and the whole thing is sad and unfortunate. Everything, every part of it. What's really important is Taylor and her daughter and making sure that they are OK.
I just think that women bicker, of course, because we're not all going to agree on everything, but at the end of the day when we really need to be there for one another, we are. That's what I like about this group of women, they will support each other. They've supported me when I was going through my divorce, and we'll support Taylor through her trying times. At the restaurant Adrienne and I definitely had questions for Taylor, but as she explained things we realized it was time to put that aside and make sure that our friend was OK, for her and her daughters sake.
I didn't see Kim much this season. I saw her a bit in Hawaii, and I would have loved to have seen more of her. I could understand Kyle and Mauricio's frustration because we were there to celebrate his birthday weekend and Kim wasn't making it to the events and outings. I mean that's her sister. She should have been there to celebrate and join in the festivities. The rest of the trip being with the girls was enjoyable. We had fun. It was unfortunate that Kim and Ken didn't make the boat ride. I think they would have really enjoyed it.
Kim not showing up I thought was a combination of things. She was distracted because she was in a new relationship. Her behavior did seem odd, but Kim can be quirky at times, that's part of her personality. I didn't spend enough time with her to really know what was going on in her personal life. It's hard to see the sisters fight. It's hard to see anybody fight. Emotions get involved. We're all strong women but we're all sensitive too. Sometimes we're misunderstood and sometimes we misunderstand. But I think all of us girls have good intentions, and we do truly care.
If there's anything to take from this season it's that life is so precious and that every moment that we're on this planet should be appreciated. Having a mother with an illness and being there for her, and being there for my children I just realize how precious life is. During the holidays my whole family flew out to Hawaii to spend time together. You never know what's going to happen so just enjoy the moments that you have with the people you love and cherish them. Let them know that you love them and how much you appreciate them being in your life.
I'm truly grateful to the viewers for your kind words throughout this season. Your support has helped me get through some very difficult challenges. Thank you.
Love to you all, Camille
