Every year my husband Mauricio and I throw our annual White Party. Mauricio's birthday is June 25th, our daughter Alexia's is June 18th, and Faye Resnick's is July 3rd. So I throw it every year in honor of their birthdays. We all look forward to it, as do all our friends.
When Adrienne called to tell me about Russell's e-mail to Camille, I was so disappointed. The last thing I wanted was for anyone to feel uncomfortable. However, Taylor is my friend and has always been kind to me. I didn't want to disinvite her. I tried reaching her on her cell, but couldn't reach her and wasn't getting a reply. As the time got closer to when they were arriving, I felt sick to my stomach. I just could not bring myself to tell her. Plus I knew by confronting them about the e-mail we would basically be addressing Russell and Taylor's issues. None of us have ever said anything to Russell. Anything Taylor shared with us we kept to ourselves per her request.
The last thing I needed on top of my stress was Kim and Brandi fighting. In watching the episode, I saw that it was even worse than I thought. I had only caught tidbits, as I was consumed with the Taylor and Russell issue. I really was surprised to see Kim was that rude to Brandi. She honestly is a kind person. My sister has had a difficult year, and although I cannot speak for her nor do I condone her behavior, I cannot help but think that has something to do with it.
When Taylor and Russell were coming up the walkway, all smiles with a gift in hand, I was overcome with emotion. I could barely speak. Everyone felt so strongly about the situation. Emotions were running high. When I ran after them in the car, I felt so sad looking at both of them, ready to go home. Taylor and Russell both said he knew exactly what Camille had said. I was confused. Either A: Taylor told him a different story because she was scared, B: what she had told us in the past WASN'T true and he really wanted to sue for slander, or C: it was true but he was protecting himself because it was said ON camera. . .who knows what the answer was. . .my heart breaks watching these episodes with Russell. So much sadness. This has been a rough year in so many ways.
Next week, more of the White Party.
Until then. . .
