Welcome back RHOBH fans! We have officially started Season 4, which promises to be a rocky season for myself.
In writing these blogs it is always difficult to go back in time and remember exactly how I was feeling in that momen -- because my relationships and friendships with these women have all evolved and changed. So much has happened in all of our lives since the first episode was shot but I will do my best to recollect my feelings at that particular time and try not to be to biased as to how I feel right now!
This year I was able to move into a bigger home so that we could all have our own bedrooms and the boys could have a fancy new pool. While it may not be a mansion by any stretch I am very proud to call it home. I do also realize my children would be happy in a studio apartment with all of us sharing the same bed, but I still wanted them to have some of the luxuries they have on their dad's time on my time as well.
My real estate agent-slash-on-again-off-again-boyfriend-for-over-a year-now Jonathon Ruiz (better known as J.R.) helped me find my new place, as you all saw on the show. He is a great real estate agent but other then that I don't want to delve into my relationship with J.R. just yet because boy is it ever so complicated.
Yolanda and I go shopping for furniture that is just a bit out of my price range, but amazingly stylish. It gives me some good ideas for what I should be looking for at a lesser price. I really admire Yolanda's strength and beauty, the fight that she has inside, the way she bear hugs her modern, combined family and the amazing way she is raising her beautiful children. I am really learning so much from her.
Now getting more into the show, I urged Yolanda to go to Kyle's party mostly because I needed a date. The fact is that Kyle, Kim and myself at this point were still working out issues and our friendship.
At Kyle's party we finally meet the two new Housewives and I actually at the time found them both very lovely... but definitely felt more of a connection with Carlton and David.
I was honestly shocked to see all the digs that Lisa took at Kyle in this episode. . . .not to say that Kyle and I won't have many future digs for one another along our path.
But this one really stuck with me and I just found it so inappropriate: when Lisa was speaking of the Mauricio's cheating rumors in front of Portia, Kyle and Maurcico's five year old daughter!!! Portia is five and she and my son Jake are almost the same age. Let me tell you these kids hear and understand EVERYTHING that gets said to them and around them. Listen, I am all for putting the elephant in the room on point, as I always have been, but you never do that around someone's child. We are grown ups we pick the time and place.
In closing I would love to say I am shocked about the level of closeness and ass kissing between Lisa and Scheana. At that particular time I would have been quite shocked by it, but sadly I now know better -- and it is hard to pretend otherwise.
P.S. Dear random 30-year-old cocktail waitress, my face may not move but neither do my legs when it comes to taken men, no matter how hard they come at me.
