Wanna Be a Cowgirl Baby
Over lunch with Adrienne and Kyle, Camille mentions that she's reached out to Taylor to apologize, but to no avail. Hence, no one was particularly surprised Camille didn't slap on her spurs and head out to Kennedy's fifth birthday party. Specifically, since Taylor went on to mention that if she had attended she would have been put on pooper scooper detail. However, even if I was mid-brawl with someone, I would have tried to sneak into this shindig -- a bounce house, mechanical bull, a trackless train, Ace Young, fish tacos! They even had children's tables after all that drama!

Yes, what massively orchestrated event isn't plagued with trackless train instillation and seating arrangement problems? However, those weren't the only trouble spots on the day's agenda. The Richards sisters had an awkward reunion at the mechanical bull (surely that's the first time anyone's typed that sentence). Brandi (finally on a walking cast) hobbled in, ready to meet firemen and mend fences with Kim, only to find that Kim's "selective seeing" was still in full effect. Adrienne was, as anticipated, annoyed that Lisa would have Pandora's bachelorette at any place that was not the Palms. Kennedy refused to hug Ace Young. Dana had to learn about "cowboy stuff." There was some tiffing over when the pony present for Kennedy would trot in. And, of course, there was the lingering tension and fallout from the tea party revelation.

Thankfully one thing happened which I'll take as an early birthday present -- Mauricio and Paul rode a mechanical bull.

Can someone give Paul a step up next time? Or teach the thing to lower like a Disney horse? Poor guy just wanted to look as cool as Mauricio.

Next week Brandi ponders "lessons" for the ladies and Taylor and Camille have first post-tea tete-a-tete. I am definitely counting both of those as things I'm thankful for this week. Happy Thanksgiving y'all!
