Hello to you all,well I forewarned you that this journey was going to be riddled with trials and tribulations!
So let's try to dissect this complicated episode. . .we resume with the awful scenario at Mauricio's event. Clearly Kim wanted to be a loyal friend and inform them, but she shouldn't have ignited the situation there. But hindsight is 20-20!
When I viewed this episode I wasn't prepared for the venom and ugliness, the temper of Paul, the vicious accusations by Adrienne towards Brandi, and I immediately understood why Taylor looked like a deer in the headlights, given her past. I cannot fathom how the other men stood by and let Paul verbally assault Brandi. It would never have happened if Ken had been there. Lord knows what would have ensued.
I have always endeavored to be honest with my friends, fellow 'Wives, and you the viewer. I would be dishonest if I let my support of Brandi supersede what I truly believed was right -- she shouldn't have said it. However I understood Brandi's frustration with Adrienne, as I have been in situations manifested by Adrienne and her staff of complete utter nonsense, constantly on social media and in the press, that I have really wanted to respond to,but have somehow managed to ignore. Maybe with the support of my husband calming me. When I have been so insulted by the things written that have come from her and her staff, it has been somewhat easier. . .Brandi has had to deal with it alone.
Brandi is, as you know, more volatile. She regrets what she said. Did I chastise her? Yes, to be truthful I did. She wished she could retract it. . .too late.
Ken, on the other hand, as thrilled as I was to have him home and doing so well, as you see, is a nightmare of a patient. He had been home a few days, had me up and down like a bloody yo yo. So when I witnessed him laughing with Martin, I know that, if there is another time. . .He can stay with Martin.
I have to say anybody undergoing a hip surgery,this doctor was amazing and within a week he was pain free and back to normal. Incredible!
We were invited to Kyle's house for dinner. If I had known that Faye was going to be there, all clued in, on what was supposed to be a secret, I would have possibly refused the invitation and advised Brandi to do likewise. I have memories of another dinner party where Faye was back up, mouthpiece, or whatever one would like to call her. It was an impossible situation. I knew Brandi had shown her regret but still felt indignant, and I agree with the fact that her feelings were valid too.
So we leave the party so to speak, until next next time. I will take this chance to wish you all a very happy holidays. My family want to "relax" at home that means me cooking 24/7! I wouldn't change it as I rarely have them all under one roof. It is a time of year to reflect, value, and cherish what we have.
In the wake of the horrific shooting in Connecticut, I send my condolences to the families that have lost their little ones. I cannot possibly ever understand the motivation for a heinous crime like this. My heart truly breaks for each and everyone who has lost somebody.
Thank you all for your support. God bless and a happy Christmas.
