This week we get a peek into Brandi’s relationship with JR. I was proud of her for putting her foot down and realizing that the relationship was not going in the direction that she wanted. As a single mother myself, I recognize that you have to be very cautious about letting men into your lives and introducing them to your children. I think he is a great guy, but this maybe isn't the right relationship for her at this point in her life.
Watching Gigi and Yolanda really touched my heart as I have had so many moments like that with my kids. Especially with Kimberly just starting college, it is bittersweet to see your kids go off into the world and grow up. I am a crier too, and my kids would have said the same thing to me that Gigi did to Yolanda. Sorry kids, but one day you will understand!
On our way to the luncheon the girls and I discussed our thoughts on Lisa's faint on Dancing With the Stars. We playfully joked that we thought it was overly dramatic and almost seemed a little fake. I know this may have come across as rude and mean-spirited, but at the end of the day we were really just "laughing with her" as you say.
As Brandi did say, it was a very graceful fall indeed, but in my opinion it was not real. I learned last week that Lisa announced that she had suffered in the past from anemia and fainting. This was something that I had not known. If this is the case, then I don't think dancing is cut out for her. If it was real then I apologize for my suspicions, and if it wasn't then I commend her for a beautiful fall.
Carlton's house was very beautiful, and I love her taste. I felt like I had stepped into a fairy tale land. Her doll collection was very interesting, and it almost seemed like they could come alive at night. I appreciate her unique style and edginess.
As far as the conversation that took place regarding unfaithfulness, I will say that this is something that really bothered me. I love my sister very much, and when she is sad I am sad. It is very difficult to be in this world and not be hurt by the rumors and comments that people make up. There is a time and place for everything, and that conversation should have never been brought up.
