Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love, laughter, and family. Now back to "reality." One thing I find really refreshing about the ladies of Beverly Hills is that we are not afraid to let you the viewers see the real side of us -- when we run around with no makeup on, in our gym clothes, hair a mess. I think it really does show people we're not afraid to let you in to our realities. No one is perfect, and we don't pretend to be. Most of us have children and have no time to sit around spending our time and money getting our hair and makeup done when it's not for a special event.
Watching this episode I started crying the second I saw Chica my puppy who went missing. Other then her obvious bathroom issues, she was the sweetest dog on the planet. I miss her every day and she will be missed forever. I spoke to my mom on the phone about my grandma's hip surgery and my upcoming book signing in Sacramento (my hometown), which also happened to fall on my father's birthday. At this point, my father and I are still not talking, and he is still having serious health issues with his heart. Ugh!
I am really feeling sorry for Kyle at this point with the ongoing, back-and-forth stance Lisa is taking about the Mauricio cheating scandal. Yes, we have all talked about it, and I myself even brought it up at lunch. But we all agreed it was BS. Months ago when it first came out, Lisa said she didn't know if the stories were true or not, which leaves people doubting Mauricio. Then she brought it up in front of Kyle and Mauricio's five year-old-daughter Portia, which was so inappropriate. When I brought it up to the group at Carlton's lunch, Lisa cut Yolanda off in the middle of her sentence and said "you mean there is no smoke with out fire," but then added she knew it was all rubbish. Which is it??? Now again sitting talking with Ken (knowing full well the ramifications) says she doesn't know if it is true or not and that they will never really know the truth.
I'm with Ken on this one, you should always let a friend know about harmful gossip, because it sucks to have people talking behind your back. You should always support and believe a friend (even a not-so-close-friend like Kyle and I were). Families first, middle age b----y-ness second.
I really love watching Kim with her family. She has come such a long way. I've gotten to know her a lot better over these past few months, and trust me when I say her kids are her life. Kim is a sweet, very nutty, soul, and I just adore her. I'm proud of how far she has come in her sobriety, and I know it is a daily struggle because I have plenty of sober friends. I sometimes feel guilty having a drink around her because I don't want her to judge me. But then I have to remember I have never claimed to be sober, especially not on vacations (as you see in the preview for next week's episode).
I felt so honored to be invited by David and Yolanda to watch David get his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I had never been to one of these ceremonies and it was absolutely amazing. Every which way I turned there was another music legend. I may have snuck some pictures and stalked a few of these superstars for photos with me. I mean, come on it's a once in a life the opportunity to have all of these talented legendary people in the same room! It was a beautiful ceremony and I really enjoyed meeting Yolanda's mother, brother, and Natalie Cole!!!
Joyce invited us all to Palm Springs and, although she wasn't my favorite person at the time, I begrudgingly accepted. At this point, I was getting along with most of the girls. I just really didn't enjoy Joyce trying to drive a wedge between Yolanda, Lisa, and I simply for the sake of getting herself some attention with her embellished story.
Lisa and I were still in a good place at this time, so we decide to do a little bit of bathing suit shopping for our upcoming trip. Although I own over 100 bikinis, some of which are one-of-a-kind that I designed myself, I have a little bit of an obsession with them and can always use more. I picked out a few cute ones, and although I am happy with my body at 41 and after having two kids (and I do workout really hard), it is still annoying to see my little mommy belly baby pooch. But my boys were sooo worth it!
Oh and did I mention I kissed Carlton?
Until next week
