Who Are We to Judge?

Yolanda gets deeps about plastic surgery, self-acceptance, and Brandi's quest for financial independence.

Hello from New York City! I am writing this blog from my bed at the hotel, overlooking Central Park. It's an incredibly beautiful day and even though I wish I was running up and down 5th Avenue or strolling through that park right now, I am excited to rest up to go and see Andy tomorrow night on Watch What Happens Live!

Thanks again for all your well wishes. I am on Day 54 of my treatment and I continue to see some bright spots in my days.

Looking back, though, I can see myself struggling to keep it together and participate as each episode airs. The Lyme disease had so severely affected my brain functioning that it was extremely hard for me to think, form sentences, and stay focused. I was always trying to be so extremely healthy because it was the only way I could get through my days.

Anyway, on to the Bravo matters!

This was the perfect Saturday afternoon in Malibu, and it was so much fun having Lisa and Kyle over for lunch at my house. I absolutely adore Suzanne and have a lot of respect for all the awareness she has brought to anti-aging and bio-identical hormone replacement. I have read every one of her books and whenever I spend time with her and her husband Allen I always feel inspired by how energetic and vibrant they both are.

My Lyme disease wasn't diagnosed at that time, so I thought all my symptoms were a sign of peri-menopause, which I thought would maybe be an uncomfortable but interesting lunch conversation. Most woman probably choose to suffer through it very privately, but I love sharing and comparing notes on these issues with my girlfriends, because it is for sure a subject that is going to come up for all of us at some point in time. It certainly sucks to see gravity set in, but it's part of growing older, and it's always going to be a better option than not being here at all. Suzanne is fighting the battle in the most educated and eloquent way and I feel we can all learn from her. I have always said 40 is the new 20 and I truly believe that, but it for sure takes a lot of hard work, education, and discipline to keep it all together as we make our way to 50 and beyond. Like Suzanne, for me, it's a lifestyle choice that I made some time ago, and I am happiest when my body and brain run on all eight cylinders.

In Chinese medicine, menopause is called "second spring" because they believe it's the most powerful time in a woman's life -- a time we approach a passage where our family duties calm down and we can start thinking about ourselves.

OK. . .it sounds like it, but I honestly don't have anything against plastic surgery, Botox or injectables. . .do what makes you happy. But I do believe that staying young and growing old gracefully starts from within. The point I was trying to make was that it's sad to see how a lot of woman in this town feel the need to rush into facelifts, etc. to keep up with the new generations coming in, rather than using their age and wisdom to empower themselves.

Brandi is so naughty that I wish she had invited all of us for a little practice run before going to Vegas, but now we know the real truth as to why we look like beginners and she looked so hot wrapped around that pole. Haha! But let’s be honest -- if you had to pick the one of us that would be the most comfortable on a pole, I think we'd all choose Brandi. Not a bad contest to win. . .

Sophia is gorgeous and it was nice to see Kyle in her family element; as a true Capricorn, that's where she truly shines.

Lisa is always able to give me a good laugh out of every situation. I know she is not excited about going to Vegas, but she is going to rally and be a good sport to support Brandi. She says she is not going to wrap her legs around anything, but wait til you see her flying around that pole. . .Believe me, it's going to be smoking hot so make sure to tune in next week!

Unfortunately, I had to miss the first night in Vegas, but I had to prioritize because David was coming back from a two-week working trip in Italy. All of our time apart and his hard work did pay off as we are enjoying Andréa Bocelli's new album Passione being released this week and reaching number one on Amazon as I'm writing this.

As you can probably tell I was so excited to see him, and we needed to reconnect even though my chocolate soufflés sucked (it was the thought that counted right?). I was raised to take pride in homemaking and it's something that I always love to do. I know I share that pride with millions of other women all over the world. It's a good feeling and it makes me happy. I have always been fascinated with romance and how to keep it alive so you got another little glimpse of what I think is important!

Once in Vegas, I learned there was a lot of hesitance going around about going pole dancing. I believe you don't need to be a stripper in order to pole dance so I just say -- let's just keep our clothes on and have fun!!! I was there to support Brandi in her new business adventure. If she is going to be financially independent by doing pole dancing events then who are we to judge? It's sweet to see Brandi find her way back to Brandi.

Like I always say the opposite of love is not hate, but indifference. . .Brandi is getting closer.

On that note I hope you all have a great week! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to post your comments.

Much love,


Yo

Lisa V.: Everything Is About to Boil Over

Lisa V. thinks she was lucky to miss the plane ride over with the rest of the group. 

Hello and welcome back. Firstly, the dream team charging 'round BH I could've done without. It was fun, but a lot of running, and my mind is useless with clues, so it was challenging. Too funny that Brandi was with Kyle, as they weren't even talking!
Anyway I got on the tour bus, back of somebody's bike, whatever it took...We lost our envelope at the beginning--oh, dear. Anyway, it is good to see all of the women having a laugh--very tiring, though. Our last destination was Villa Blanca--finally a glass of rosè! A trip was decided, so off we trot to Holland.

Remember how Brandi was saying, "Yes, Holland, we can all smoke pot!" Well that changes real quick! Having been raised by strict but liberal parents sounds like an oxymoron. What I mean to say is that manners and respect were essential, but as parents who lived in London through the '60s, pot was not a huge deal. The lighthearted banter later takes a dark side...

So I couldn't leave with the others, as I was working then judging the Hero Dog Awards and was already committed--after seeing the journey, I realized how fortunate I was--so Eileen and I joined a little later. David and Yolanda's event looked fabulous, though. To raise that incredible amount of money for such a good cause, I salute that wholeheartedly.

I really felt for Lisa as she explained her feelings in regard to Harry quitting drinking and the death of his brothers on the way to the event.

I really felt for Lisa as she explained her feelings in regard to Harry quitting drinking and the death of his brothers on the way to the event. I feel that is absolutely why she is so concerned.

It was a difficult episode to watch as this subject of Kim's sobriety came to the forefront. I knew from experience and reiterated this to Lisa and Eileen that the possibility of this ending well was non-existent, as I had experienced her aggression in Paris, when I gently probed as to whether she had taken a sleeping pill, as that would explain her bizarre behavior. I still can't quite compute the difference between me asking whether she took a sleep aid, which she interpreted as contesting her sobriety, and her taking a pain pill at the poker night, which apparently had no bearing in breaking her resolve to abstain.
I had visited Amsterdam several times, and as I was visiting my family in London, it worked out perfectly--well the logistics did. The trip? Not so much.
You can see the tension between the group--like a pot simmering, then the lid is put on, and next week everything boils over.


Not too much for me too comment on, oh apart from, yes, the Dolce & Gabbana shirt is actually called " The pussy bow shirt." Go figure.
Until next week, my darlings, brace for the storm. As always...Love, Lisa.
