Chastising Brandi Is a Fruitless Task
Lisa explains how she felt about Joyce and about Brandi's behavior to her at Yolanda's dinner party.
Hello. As I write this a little late as its been a crazy frantic day…
The scene with Carlton made me feel uncomfortable. I am not judging anybody, but that mask reminded me of Silence of the Lambs...I would rather float around in pink marabou than that!
Firstly the situation with Chica is absolutely heartbreaking, and as I watch them putting up posters, I knew it was redundant. Ken and I had been over there the day before with our gardener hunting through the bushes all afraid of what we would find. There was a small hole in the fence, and it was like a forest at the back. Regardless of anything, I feel so badly for Brandi. . .They are our furry children. It would devastate me to relive it.
You see me at our new site "Pump." I always feel a certain amount of trepidation when starting a new project, but you have to speculate to accumulate and the restaurant and bar business has been extremely challenging these last few years, with many closing down all around us.
I love the creative aspect of a new project, but it is all consuming. We are still not finished, but I see light at the end of the tunnel. . .
The long hours have been exhausting so to be invited to dinner at Yolanda and David's house seemed like a treat. It was a beautiful evening with the Tenors, but the atmosphere between the women was not ideal to say the least. Brandi having a field day at Joyce's expense that's for sure. I had learnt from the my previous experience that to chastise her was a fruitless task. I have to be honest, at that moment I really didn't care for Joyce. I felt she had tried to instigate a problem right at the beginning, insinuating Yolanda and Brandi were speaking negatively about me. I chose to ignore it, believing that she was a troublemaker and a drama queen. Since then I have come to know her and Michael and see a very different side of her. . .
This year having been on Dancing With the Stars and all the challenges that Sur and Villa Blanca give me, coupled with these two shows, it has been a demanding year but an amazing one. I thank you all for your comments. I wish you all a happy, cozy Christmas. Ken was in a car collision today and it made me realize how fragile life is. He is fine but shaken up, but the outcome could've been so different. Time is precious. Sending you all my love for a happy Christmas.
Until next week. As always, love Lisa.
