The hotel was beautiful and I was so excited to be away. The first night was fun and we all had a good time. It was funny seeing Lisa telling Brandi to get her hands off Ken. Lisa handled it better than I would have. Haha!
On the beach the next day, Lisa and I were both surprised to hear Taylor call us and say she left Russell. Taylor had said many times that she should leave but never had until this point. . This was the first I had ever heard her say they really were done. All of us were relieved. Some of the group doubted she would stick to it and end up going back to Russell. I knew this was something that had to be done for both Taylor and Kennedy.
The next day Kim finally arrived! At this point I was feeling that she had already missed a lot of the fun. I never saw her all day until dinner that night. When Kim and Ken showed up and acted like it was just any other day. I was beyond frustrated. I expected her to explain what happened (truthfully) and or apologize. It wasn't like it was a secret. The entire group knew what was going on. Kim likes to brush things under the carpet. I like to put them on the table. The reason I need to do that with my sister is if we don't address what is bothering us, it builds up and then our relationship becomes very passive aggressive -- as you witnessed in Season 1. I wanted my sister to just be honest -- not just about Hawaii but about everything. Mauricio has never had an argument with Kim before, but he has witnessed my hurt and frustration and felt compelled to say something.
A lot of you tweeted me asking why Kim called him Maurice instead of Mauricio. . . that was not a dig. Some people do call him that. Both my sisters do and my Mom did as well. Some family and friends also call him Moe (just to clarify).
