This week we step into part two of Lisa's tea. Last week was a very stressful episode. A lot changed the day of Lisa's tea. By the end, Taylor and Camille were no longer speaking, Lisa and Camille were not speaking, and Taylor and Lisa were now good friends with all negative feelings left in the past. Although, Lisa wanted me to step in more, we were okay. I honestly did not want to be involved in another argument. I was still recovering from Game Night. The last thing I wanted to do was get in the middle of someone else's fight.
In the episode when I had my séance, Taylor came over to my house to say she was upset with Lisa. We had a conversation on my bed where she told me that she was "scared of Lisa" and that she was intimidated by her. I have never felt that way about Lisa, but I am a strong person. I told her she should be stronger with Lisa. I said "maybe she preys on weak people." I think that "prey" was too strong of a word. That conversation wasn't about Lisa. I was trying to help Taylor be a stronger person in general, to have her speak up for herself -- in all areas of her life. I know it bothered Lisa that I said that, and I do feel bad about that. I am not premeditated in what I am going to say. That means there will be times I regret saying certain things. I will say though, Taylor did speak up to Lisa at the tea party about what bothered her. Although it was messy getting there, they ended up being friends after it all.
Later Adrienne, Camille, and I had dinner and discussed the tea party. I know Camille was worried that Taylor was upset with her. Camille spoke the truth. Taylor was obviously concerned because it was put out in the open. However, sometimes people say things in the heat of the moment. Emotions were running high. This situation is very difficult and none of us wanted to hurt her or put her in harm’s way. Later, I told Taylor later that Camille was just saying what Taylor had told all of us.
This was not something that was going to be resolved overnight. . .
Kennedy's party: It was a beautiful party in a gorgeous setting. Of course, it was over the top -- WAY over! But did we really expect anything else? The electric bull was so fun. Watching Kim on there made me laugh. Kim was so determined and really good at it! I died laughing watching Paul attempt to mount the bull. Adrienne and I could not stop laughing!
Of course, the day wouldn't be complete without some drama! Brandi tried to talk to my sister Kim who would not even acknowledge her. I feel bad that this is dragging out so long. Kim can be stubborn and hold a grudge. I would like to see her own up to her part of the fight, apologize, accept Brandi's apology, and move on. I'm not holding my breath. May I suggest the same to you?
Then there was Adrienne, upset with Lisa for having Pandora's party at her competition's hotel. I was thinking "Please, no. Not again." I really don't want to be in the middle anymore, between Kim and Brandi, Lisa and Taylor, or Lisa and Adrienne. I suggested that maybe Lisa was uncomfortable asking Adrienne to have it at her hotel, The Palms. Well, stay tuned for this one. . .
All in all it was a fun party. My kids had fun and we all laughed a lot. I felt sad watching the show and seeing Taylor, Russell and Kennedy posing for photos. Just goes to show, things are not always as they appear to be. . .
Until next week. . .
