Onwards We Go
Lisa shares her thoughts on Taylor's tough issues, expanding her business, and what she learned watching the other ladies this week.
So this week we return to Colorado and continue to see Taylor dealing with some tough issues. We all tried to be supportive. We tried our utmost to understand.
It was troubling to witness, and I felt a lot of empathy towards her and what we now know to be an extremely difficult situation.
I found the whole trip exhausting, so when we returned home, I just felt relieved to flop back into my blanket of security, with my husband and getting back to the serious business of snogging the Gigster -- for which I am highly criticized!
I heard that the premises next door to one of my existing restaurants Sur was possibly available for sale. I knew there was potential for another restaurant to take it, and I was desperate to convince my husband to support my choice and venture forward into another business plan -- a bar with a little gem of a garden, something so unique in WeHo. it was a very exciting prospect for me. My mind was racing ahead of how I could decorate and transform this empty shell into a sexy space.
Oh, I am so aware that with the economic recession, it is a precarious time -- with a multitude of restaurants and bars closing and that my husband might be hesitant. We in life have to take chances, have to move forward keeping our eye on the ball and maintain our ambition. That being said cautiously and optimistically we. . .with a little persuasion. . .proceeded onwards with the journey of creating Sur Lounge, which actually opens this week!
I love working, thrive on challenges, and sometimes make the mistake of believing I can do it all. I think a lot of women when their children grow up need to keep busy so as not to dwell on their empty nest. I for one, am exactly that. When I look at Kyle even picking up poop with cute, chubby, gorgeous little Portia, I know that if I had the chance to rewind the clock 20 years and return to the role I loved best I would without any hesitation. But life doesn't afford us those chances.
I find it fascinating to watch the dynamic between Adrienne and Paul and her attitude to business and love. Through these aspects of the show we gain insight into the other lives of these complex women, and how we navigate our way through the next few months it is an adventure I am glad you the viewers can share with us.
Sometimes we endure harsh criticism for choices we make or things we say and that is just part of the many facets that being on a reality show entails. That being said onwards we go.
I love your comments it keeps us in touch with your perspective, so thank you for watching and taking the time.
