Hola Mis Amores! I hope you all had a beautiful week. This week's episode was fun for me to watch.

At the beginning of the episode we see Carlton auditioning girls to work the pole at her party. If that's what you like, it's fine, though I frankly don't see how that is "empowering women."

I am not entirely pro-gun, and I was always against having one in the house until we had to experience a real scare. A couple of years ago, we lived in a home that was in a private, very "safe" Beverly Hills area -- or so I thought. On a Sunday night at 9 pm two guys were coming up to our home with ski masks and shot guns. It was frightening! I was lucky that my husband became my "King Kong" and larger than life, thumping his chest in front of the robbers, yelling "Get the f--- out of my house." My dog who is trained to attack, broke the window with her head. We always say that the robbers were probably more scared of the dog than anything else, and luckily they never entered the house.

After that we decided to get a gun to protect our babies, but until now, I had never been to a range to actually fire it. I've shot guns before for movie roles, but never a real gun. I was a bit nervous but between the instructor and my wonderful husband I felt very safe -- and I must say pretty cool. It was quite an experience.
