Joyce: My Opinions Have Changed
Joyce now understands why Lisa and Ken were so upset at dinner -- and why they decided to leave the trip and the drama behind.
Hola mis Amores! I hope you all had a wonderful week. I've been crazy busy with my upcoming charity event. I'd like to invite you all to come help me support a wonderful cause and have fun while you watch stunning women from around the world compete to see who will be Queen of the Universe. It will be on March 16 at the Saban theater in Beverly Hills. Tickets are available on ticketmaster.com.
Both my husband and I felt horrible when we watched this week's episode because we didn't know Lisa and Ken had already given an answer on the beach regarding Brandi's accusations about the tabloids. Back then, I thought Lisa should at least give an answer. Personally I've always thought it's best to address problems instead of walking away. This is something I spoke about with Lisa when we got back to LA.
Now that I've seen the episode, now that I know exactly what transpired at the beach, and now that I've seen the ganging up; I can fully understand why Lisa and Ken didn't want to address the same conversation all over again at dinner -- and why they decided to leave. If I was in their position, I probably would have left also. I called Lisa and Ken to make sure they were OK after the dinner fiasco, but it wasn't until later when we were all back in LA that I was fully able to understand everything that happened.
I showed the girls "El Paseo de la Princesa" in Old San Juan and I gave them a tour of the city. Then Mauricio and my husband joined us after their golf game. I am happy that Mauricio and my husband get along so well and can have a good time in this journey of RHOBH. The next day the girls left Puerto Rico, and I stayed to spend some time with my family. I truly apologize for being so MIA in all these episodes, as I feel I owed it to all you wonderful fans. But the fact is in that moment in time I was just trying to be strong and host the ladies -- but my mind and my heart was with my family.
I LOVE THAT YOU COULD ALL SEE A LITTLE PIECE OF MY LINDO, PUERTO RICO! And I love hearing lots of you are planning to go visit my island.
Kimberly and Gigi were leaving home and I know how hard that must have been for their mothers, especially for Kim as we talked and cried about it on multiple occasions. My boys are still very young and I can't imagine how hard it must be to have your children move out. Now that I am a mother, I appreciate my mother even more. It must have been so hard for her when I packed my two bags and decided to take a leap of faith and moved to LA to pursue my dream.
When my husband and I finally got back from Puerto Rico, we went to the Beverly Hills 100th anniversary party, which you will all see next week. To sum it up, all I can say is that these past episodes have been very difficult to watch. Between reliving the pain and seeing how unfair things were, trust me, my opinions have changed.
Until next time
