Q&A: How Are Camille, Adrienne, and Taylor Now?

The He Said, She Said Merry-Go-Round

Marisa comments on the White Party antics and Taylor's Kennedy kerfuffle.

Sorry for the delay...I had a long weekend in San Diego with my son's club soccer team and Dean was out of town. Just came up for air last night to work on this.

And we're off to Kim's...where this gum smacker still needs to learn when and where not to chew. It could be worse...I could be learning about my young daughter's whereabouts. Thank you, Taylor, for putting the "beaver" in Beaver Creek while not knowing where Kennedy was.

However, after reading Taylor's blog I have a better understanding of what went down. I realize there was a communication breakdown (which happens to all of us), but still feel it was Taylor's ultimate responsibility to be in complete charge of the situation.

As a fellow rhinoplastee (double in my case), I completely understood what Kim was feeling before her grand unveiling. Elective surgery is a nerve-wracking process filled with second-guessing, other people's opinions, and money that might be better saved on the kids' college fund -- but sometimes you got to say WTF and go for it. If Kim is happier because of her new nose...then that's all that matters. She seems to be and looks great. I'm hoping this is another step towards her full recovery from last year's tailspin.

Over at Adrienne's, Paul flashes his old high school speed to get inside the closing gates as a inferno rages nearby. . .turns out his reaction to the fire may threaten more than just the neighborhood.

We are just hours away from the White Party and Kyle starts sweating out the details. She's hoping for some last minute help but doesn't get any from Mauricio, who finds himself in what can only be described as an awkward semi prone position that looks as if he's trying to make it with a piece of patio furniture or indiscreetly take a leak.

Anyhow, Kyle always knows how to do throw a good party and manages to do so here again.

Some brief highlights before what I hope is the last round of the "Beat A Dead Horse Into The Ground" main event include: Paul taking a lustful (last?) glance at Adrienne's knockers in the limo ride over, Ken not quite knowing where to stand when Kyle and Lisa discuss shoes, Mauricio telling Kim "you look great" on a loop, and Byron Allen ladies and gentlemen!

Finally, the face-off we have all been waiting for arrives as Adrienne, Paul, and Brandi convene inside while the others show off their questionable moves on the dance floor. It's not long before the usually merry-go-round of "he said she said" kicks off, and I'm left scratching my head wondering what actually went down until we get a tacit acknowledgment from Paul that Brandi "was warned" which confirms for me what I thought all along. . .go Brandi!

We're not done yet as the rest of the gang as well as the ubiquitous, Dwight, enter the fray. Are there hypocrites in this room? Is there of double-standard taking place? Does Ken land another great line when he responds to Paul "That made your shoe"? Has Dwight opened his mouth for the last time? he answers are all a resounding YES!

Signing off until next week. . .

PS: Didn't my baby sister Jordana and baby brother Paul look so cute in white?!?

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!.
