I really had been looking forward to Mauricio's birthday in Hawaii. For the first time ever, I was not able to enjoy our White Party. I really felt bad about that because it was also our daughter Alexia's and Faye Resnick's birthdays (Alexia's is June 18th, Mauricio's is June 25th, and Faye's is July 3rd). We always throw the White Party in honor of all of their birthdays.
When Kim told me she was bringing her boyfriend Ken to Hawaii I understood that she wanted to have someone to be with. I wasn't thrilled, obviously, because I had never been a fan of his. One of the issues that Kim and I argue about is her being irresponsible. We all showed up at the airport on time, except for Kim. I was frustrated and disappointed because I thought it would be fun for us to all fly together. That's half the fun!
When I first laid eyes on the island hopper "plane" that was supposed to take us to Lanai, I didn't know if I should laugh or cry. It looked like a 7-Up can with a propeller! It's no secret that I am not a good flyer. However, I will say, that the hypnotherapy you all saw me go through on Season 1 really did help. Carrying the Zohar (the red book you see me holding) also makes me feel better. The girls love to tease me about my issues with flying. Watching the episode and seeing Brandi slumped over in her seat on Xanax, I thought, "OK, I will stick with my Zohar." I become quite religious when I fly.
