Fun and Light

Dana shares why she loved this episode and the scoop on her boy genius and her $25,000 sunglasses.

Let me begin by saying how entertaining this week's show was for me to watch. The banter was so fun and light and I learned a lot about myself! The dress in the show did not end up being my wedding dress. I actually hired Janie Bryant from Mad Men to make me a custom one, but now that may change again as her popularity has ballooned into the stratosphere, and she does not have time anymore.

Every time I get somewhere with my wedding, I seem to have some sort of setback. Maybe it's the "force" telling me to let it go and just marry the man I love without all the hoopla. I guess because I'm a wedding planner, I want it to be a presentation of my work, as well as a celebration of my love. I was married once briefly in my early 30s, and I eloped -- so maybe a part of me stupidly feels the bigger the wedding the more likely it will work this time. Please Tweet or Facebook me if you have any vendors I should check out for my wedding. I welcome the advice!

I was surprised to see that Kyle thought our lunch was awkward. I found it really fun. I'll have to ask her about it when I see her. I am not embarrassed by my son's accomplishments. He just turned two and continues to excel in his language skills and reading. I am actually going to a French pre-school today for an orientation. As many of you know, I like to study basic Neural Science and what I found out when I was pregnant is that the brain works out like a muscle so teaching your child any language is good for them. It doesn't matter which one. I am teaching my baby Thai because Miss Sue, his beloved Nanny, and her children, Nat and Joanne, speak it fluently to him, so it makes it easy for him to learn. I have many baby training techniques using multiple resources, which I've been using to teach your baby the encyclopedia, math, or reading. ' In addition to committing "Row, row, row your boat" to memory forever, you can also include facts about the world that you struggled to learn in high school!

So I just want to say that I am 5'3" with 34DD natural boobs and was a size 6, as you see me on the show at Adrienne's barbeque -- so don't listen to Ken and Lisa, that isn't chubby. I'm just not a size 0 like the other women, but I am proud to be a 4 and happy where I am now. TV does add 10 pounds!

Now we come to the glasses -- there is a store on Canon Drive in Beverly Hills called Luxuriator, and it is the infamous store that I got my $25,000 glasses at. Take my word for it, the store is breathtaking! Actually Franco, the owner who is an amazing personality in his own right, has glasses that go up to $100,000 -- so my pair is small fry. Certainly these sunglasses are not for someone who loses their glasses a lot or hasn't bought their fill of cars and jewelry. They aren't going to feel super different then than a regular pair of high-end glasses. But if you are a person who loves to wear jewels daily and can afford it, I can tell you they are beautiful and loads of fun to wear, because, as we have seen from the show, they are a great conversation piece. The way I look at it these glasses are piece of art. Jewelry with function not just shades. To each their own!

Kim: Don't Mistake My Sadness for Weakness

Kim thinks Brandi and Kyle's fight at poker night had very little to do with her.

Today’s episode started exactly where we left off, back at Eileen’s poker night. I remember just wanting to leave so badly that I just kept on walking and didn’t even see the physical altercation between Brandi and Kyle. I was caught between a rock and a hard place. I mean one is my sister and one is my friend. I wanted to make it right, so I tried to speak to Kyle, but there was so much chaos between her and Brandi. Then the other girls joined in and at that point, I was frustrated and honestly wasn’t feeling well. I just wanted everyone to let me go home! This drama may have been about me at first, but it definitely ended up being about those two and whatever residual animosity they had towards one another from the past.


On the following day, my pain got even worse, so I spent the whole day getting tests done at the doctor’s. Next evening, I was admitted to the hospital. In my last blog post, I mentioned that I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. Well, the doctor said I had a fractured rib, ruptured disc, and hiatal hernia, which was caused by the increased pressure from coughing. No wonder I was in so much pain before poker night! I was in the hospital for nine days. But I'm happy to announce that I’m currently healthy and well!
Even though my family and I are going through some tough times right now, I feel stronger than ever because I need to and want to be there for Monty, my daughters, and son. All you moms out there know, we don’t get days off! Although it seems like I have a lot going on, that’s exactly what I love about my life! Planning my daughter’s wedding is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done. I can’t believe my babies are all grown up, and I could not be more proud. Taking care of Monty has been bittersweet--it’s so painful to see my best friend slipping away, but at the same time, our relationship is stronger than ever. We’re treasuring every moment we have together. Don’t mistake my sadness for weakness. If I were not strong in my sobriety today, I could never do the things I’m doing. Thank you to those who have shared their kind words and support!
Speaking of family, my favorite part of the episode was seeing Yolanda with her son. Oh my goodness, I really related to them, because I’m going through the same thing with my son, Chad. Family dynamics change, and it does get lonely for both Chad and me now that our girls have left the nest. But this is also a special bonding time for us--yes, he’s totally going to have to hang out with his mom more, which both of us don't seem to mind at all! 
XO Kim
