The Music Man

Dana shares how proud she is of her stepson's songwriting skills and gives her thoughts on Kennedy's birthday party.

Conor Flynn is my son. He is the young cutie performing with Ace Young for Kennedy at her birthday. His title card said "musician" -- probably because "Dana's future stepson" would have looked awkward. I wanted to start my blog this week with that because I was so proud of him, and I want the world to know it.

My b-day present to Kennedy was a really intimate gift from our whole family, and I hope she enjoyed it. Ace Young and Conor worked very hard on the song for Kennedy and the staging and total performance turned out super. The song still makes me cry. You can download the "Birthday Song" on iTunes if you want to pick it up or listen to a sample of the produced version.

Not sure you can see him in the episode, but JC looked so cute in his red cowboy boots, hat, and shirt. We shopped like crazy together for our cowboy outfits before the big day. The best part of the day was when JC danced with me. We were laughing and spinning while Conor and Ace performed. It was a great moment.

My young son was obsessed with the word "America" at that age for some reason, and he kept saying it to everyone at the party. He even grabbed a flag in his cowboy outfit and was waving it around. It was hysterical! My daughter (future stepdaughter) Chloe was with me that day too. If you saw me standing next to a beautiful girl that's her. Love you Chloe!

All in all Kennedy had a great time. I was very proud of Taylor's effort at being an event coordinator. She had a rough start, but things went smashingly after that. I have never lifted so many tables and chairs in my life, but it was worth it for my girl.

I got really frustrated with Russell that day because he kept changing things without realizing the impact it had on all the people and vendors working (including my son). All of these people had worked so hard for Taylor to make everything perfect, and he seemed to only care about the impression of his big gift. At that time, I also had some internal resentment toward Russell for other reason, which you can see in my interview.

This episode really shows the ladies struggling to keep their friendships alive. There were so many alliance shifts, I was not really sure who was close to whom. I remember not being sure how to deal with it that day. I actually really wanted everyone to get along. I remember asking myself, "Where do I fit in with these women?" and not really having an answer. I wondered if they would ever want to get to know me? Taylor and I have always been close, and Kim always made an effort to share a personal story with me and give us something to really connect on -- but with the others it was much harder. I kept really wanting to connect in a meaningful way with them, but no one would try not even Brandi. . .

See you next week.

Lisa V.: Everything Is About to Boil Over

Lisa V. thinks she was lucky to miss the plane ride over with the rest of the group. 

Hello and welcome back. Firstly, the dream team charging 'round BH I could've done without. It was fun, but a lot of running, and my mind is useless with clues, so it was challenging. Too funny that Brandi was with Kyle, as they weren't even talking!
Anyway I got on the tour bus, back of somebody's bike, whatever it took...We lost our envelope at the beginning--oh, dear. Anyway, it is good to see all of the women having a laugh--very tiring, though. Our last destination was Villa Blanca--finally a glass of rosè! A trip was decided, so off we trot to Holland.

Remember how Brandi was saying, "Yes, Holland, we can all smoke pot!" Well that changes real quick! Having been raised by strict but liberal parents sounds like an oxymoron. What I mean to say is that manners and respect were essential, but as parents who lived in London through the '60s, pot was not a huge deal. The lighthearted banter later takes a dark side...

So I couldn't leave with the others, as I was working then judging the Hero Dog Awards and was already committed--after seeing the journey, I realized how fortunate I was--so Eileen and I joined a little later. David and Yolanda's event looked fabulous, though. To raise that incredible amount of money for such a good cause, I salute that wholeheartedly.

I really felt for Lisa as she explained her feelings in regard to Harry quitting drinking and the death of his brothers on the way to the event.

Lisa Vanderpump

I really felt for Lisa as she explained her feelings in regard to Harry quitting drinking and the death of his brothers on the way to the event. I feel that is absolutely why she is so concerned.

It was a difficult episode to watch as this subject of Kim's sobriety came to the forefront. I knew from experience and reiterated this to Lisa and Eileen that the possibility of this ending well was non-existent, as I had experienced her aggression in Paris, when I gently probed as to whether she had taken a sleeping pill, as that would explain her bizarre behavior. I still can't quite compute the difference between me asking whether she took a sleep aid, which she interpreted as contesting her sobriety, and her taking a pain pill at the poker night, which apparently had no bearing in breaking her resolve to abstain.
I had visited Amsterdam several times, and as I was visiting my family in London, it worked out perfectly--well the logistics did. The trip? Not so much.
You can see the tension between the group--like a pot simmering, then the lid is put on, and next week everything boils over.


Not too much for me too comment on, oh apart from, yes, the Dolce & Gabbana shirt is actually called " The pussy bow shirt." Go figure.
Until next week, my darlings, brace for the storm. As always...Love, Lisa.
