. . .And here we go again, STFU-gate continues, oy vey!

We're sitting at the dinner and Brandi drops the f-bomb. But, as I said in my last blog, we all agree that's Brandi. After you're around her for a period of time, you realize that's what she says and how she behaves at times. Whether it's appropriate or not, that's the question. Maybe she's got to work on her table etiquette. That doesn't mean she's a bad person.

Then we see Kim tear up and leave the room. I did feel bad for Kim while she was crying in the bathroom. It's sad that she's gone through so much. I'm so proud of her because of how far she's come this year. She went to rehab and she addressed what she needed to. She invited us all on this wonderful trip to bring the ladies together and celebrate her new path. I am just so proud that she is focused and seems to be going through her steps for recovery. One step I know is forgiveness. Forgiveness is a big part of it.

At the table you could see when Brandi announced her book deal, I clapped for her and said congratulations. Then she chimed in and said, "Why can't girls be happy for each other?" And I thought, "Hello, I'm happy for you!" I am happy when the other women are doing well. If we're all friends then we should be supportive of one another.

Spa day. Kim found her new spiritual path. As I sat with her we had a great conversation about healing and being at peace with oneself. We talked about the healing properties of the mud and the mask. I love all that stuff. I really enjoyed sitting there relaxing and talking to Kim about her progress. Then all of a sudden the girls got really playful. It was impossible for us to sit still. We were just having fun but at the same time I would have opted for the relaxing/healing/mud cleansing/detoxifying experience.

At dinner we had the oddest conversations. I just thought how strange the topics ranging from fetal lamb stem cell injections to the detailed specifics of childbirth. It was a peculiar dialog. We're not doctors in the room! Can we talk about something a little more entertaining? Can we talk about the latest movies? How about a good chick flick? Or a steamy book? There's a lot out there we can discuss.

Speaking of childbirth, I had my children through surrogacy. If you can’t get pregnant for whatever reason, it’s great to know that there are options available for people that want to have a family. I wish I could have had that experience. I’m just so grateful I had a wonderful surrogate who carried our two children. I have two amazing angels in my life that I love so much. They are such a gift and a blessing from God.

Excuse me Yolanda, hmm. . ., not all of us were drunk. I can only speak for myself. I was having a great time. I don't need to drink to have a good time with the ladies. But we should have been more CONSIDERATE of Kim's sobriety. We had fun doing gymnastics and that's part of our playfulness. It would be an understatement to say we cut loose a bit. We've been on trips before where we were out dancing, skiing, swimming and just having fun. We're playful and we like doing fun things. Those are the moments I truly enjoy. I love when we just let our hair down, get a little goofy and just be girls. It's like reliving our youth.

Kim was so sweet and thoughtful to include us on this lovely trip so we could all come together for an enjoyable weekend. It was so nice for her to open up and share her new journey with us. I wish her the best.

Eileen: I Could Feel the Tension at Kyle's

Eileen weighs in on the tension at Kyle's and shares what she thought of the ladies right out of the gate.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

I really enjoyed seeing Lisa R at home with her girls. You gotta love teenagers, right? I totally related to her situation with her parents. My mom is 92 and was my best friend my entire life. It's been so hard to not have her as my parent anymore. I have become hers, as dementia has slowly crept into her mind. I never feel like I see her enough. Vincent and I would have her come live with us but our family decided the move away from her home 3 hours away would probably kill her. Thank God my brother is living with her. It helps to know that he's there but I still feel guilty and sad not to be able to see her more. It was nice to meet Lisa R's sister and parents. What an amazing artist her father was! I had no idea.

Yolanda is so down to earth and lovely. The real thing. I liked her immediately.

At Lisa V's, her swan attacked Ken. Hmmmmmmmm. I've been attacked by a swan before. I've got my eye on them! and their "feather diapered bottoms"! Hahaha.

It was so great to finally meet all the girls and their husbands. They are very interesting and dynamic people, right out of the gate. Kyle's home is beautiful and very warm and welcoming. I could tell that there was a lot of tension and lots of unresolved stuff going on. It was somewhat confusing because I didn't know all the backstory. Still, Vincent and I had fun sharing stories about "the business" with Kim, etc. And it was a great opportunity to have gotten to know the women better. Well, Brandi a little better than the others! LOL. I thought she was funny and definitely likes to lay it on the table. So to speak.

Merry Christmas and Joyous Holidays to you all!.
