Hello Bravo Lovers, I hope you are well and enjoying this New Year motivated with new goals and in good health.

I feel inspired and more ready than ever to attack this New Year. My MRI shows a 20 percent improvement in my brain function, which is extraordinary news and finally gives me hope to soon be back to my normal self again. After this two-year battle, I truly miss ME being ME!

Alright, on to business. . .

The dynamics between the woman and Carlton during the preparation for her Americana Pool party is a bit uncomfortable for me to watch. But who knows? The end result could turn out to be the most beautiful pool party ever, Cirque du Soleil style.

There are times when we see quite a lot of each other and times we really don't, so I am kind of getting to know more about everyone by just watching the show.

As you can see, Brandi is still in a funk and everything overwhelms her at this point. She asked me to join her for Pride weekend in Sacramento and to meet her family -- and to help navigate the situation with her dad.

They got into a big blow out months earlier after Brandi's book release because she exposed a part of his past that he understandably did not want to share with the public. I enjoyed driving around and hearing the stories of Brandi growing up. Even though we both came from equally humble beginnings, her suburb was very different from the little, sleepy farmers town I grew up in. The Glanvilles are a lovely, hard-working family that have problems just like yours and mine.

My father died when I was seven-years old and I still miss him everyday so it is really sad for me to see a daughter relationship shut down this severely.
