Note Taken, Lesson Learned

Yolanda is shocked the goodwill from Paris didn't last when she returned for Kyle's store opening.

Sadly our trip to Paris had come to an end. As we cruised Le Seine, I really believed that, regardless of some little bumps in the road, we had bonded and strengthened our friendships within the group. . .

Ken is adorable. He is a good old-fashioned man and I loooove to see him do all the romantic little things for Lisa. I always say, "Get wise, keep your romance alive," but these veterans can teach us all a thing or two. They have a great marriage, and I am so excited to witness the renewal of their vows. I am such a "hopeless romantic," and will be bringing my box of tissues.

The photo shoot at Jim Jordan Studio was the craziest day in my career ever. We all got to the studio at 7:30 am, while our stylist showed up three hours late. It was so stressful because I knew David could only stay for one hour because he was doing a show with Barbra for the Women's Heart Center event that night.

Anyway, my love was a great sport. Photo shoots are not his favorite thing to do (haha), but he came and conquered. We got some beautiful pictures together, and he went back to work while we figured out the wardrobe and finally ended up shooting a beautiful story.

I'm sure there is a good reason, but I don't quite understand why Marisa is bringing in Mauricio to sell the Zanuck residence. It's a beautiful property and I am sure she won't have a problem selling it.

OMG! I never met Dana but she seems a mess. What is her beef with Brandi? Brandi is not on par with her and the other girls in this group??? She must be friends with Faye.

At this point, Kyle's has shown me her true colors, but regardless I wish her success, prosperity, and good luck with her new store. She created a beautiful place in one of the best locations in Beverly Hills.

I really got emotional watching myself at Kyle's opening. I had been struggling with the loss of my brain function for the past couple of months but this particular night was the defining moment when I realized that something was really wrong with me.

I had been hiding it pretty well, fighting to keep myself going. When I needed to make a point to Taylor, I was scrambling in a way that is hard to explain. I had the story in my head but I wasn't able to pull the words and have the appropriate sentences come out of mouth. My brain was paralyzed. I went home that night and knew I needed to face my illness -- and that's where my endless health journey and battle with Lyme disease began.

Obviously there had been tension between Taylor and I because she spoke badly about my husband and I within the group, but I was happy that she finally made the effort to apologize and clear the air so that we can finally move on.

It's hurtful when someone trash talks the one you love, especially someone as kind and honorable as my husband. I am very protective of him and all the people I love for that matter, I am sure you understand that feeling.

Anyway, looking back, I really went out of my way to support and guide Kim throughout our Paris trip. Under normal circumstances, I would never bring this up because I don't believe it's great karma to mention the good deeds you do in life. This situation is only important information for you to know because it's something that is going to come up by season's end.

When we left Paris, Kim was not well at all. I accompanied her through the airport, carried her bags while she was crying, struggling and upset with Kyle. Even though I wasn't feeling well either, I wanted to show my support to a woman I thought was becoming and needing a friend.

The next time I saw Kim was at Kyle's store opening where she barely greeted me, and chose to walk straight into the dressing room with Kyle to explain their version of our Paris trip.

I'm a little naive when it comes to these kinds of matters so it took me some time to realize and understand what had gone down. It's quite interesting to learn how their perspective of our experience is so different then mine.

In hindsight I should have just minded my own business and not gotten involved!

Note taken, lesson learned!
