On the husband/man topic, I date plenty -- maybe even too much -- and have zero issues getting a man. The difference between myself and Joyce is that I won't settle. I have to be physically attracted to the men I date. I want butterflies, chemistry, the whole shebang. If I just wanted to marry some short, rich guy that promised to make me famous I could have done that long ago.
The one thing I did enjoy about Joyce in this episode was that when her hair was in a ponytail she couldn't play with it as much. I'm not sure if she is in hair competition with Crystal Gayle, but someone needs a seven-inch trim.
Joyce told Yolanda she needed to give me some elegance, because apparently Joyce thinks she is perfect -- so much so that her New Year's resolution wasn't about improving herself at all but was about me. Obsessed much? Please Joyce focus on your own issues, of which there are plenty.
The day after our dinner from hell Yolanda came to visit me and give me a big sister-style pep talk, in which she told me I need to change the way I communicate. I've never spoken the way I've spoken to Joyce to any of my real friends, Yolanda included. But negative bad people bring out the temperamental, f-bomb-swearing side of me. Yolanda is very aware of what was going on in my life at this time, unlike most of the rest of the girls. She knows my dad is seriously ill and we are not on speaking terms. She knows the heartbreak I've been dealing with, having Chica my dog disappear and handling my children's devastation from that. There is also a lawsuit from my former landlord and a few other issues I'd rather not make public.
