This was definitely not the way I wanted to start my clean slate with Kyle and Kim. Even though I dislike it when Kyle always talks about teams, my dream team comment was uncalled for as well. Even though I am joking about being enemies, the truth is that I absolutely adore Mauricio and when I hugged Kyle in the bathroom last week I truly meant it. It was time for us to move on and support one another in our real-life struggles rather than holding a grudge over two different perceptions of a conversation that happened a year-and-a-half ago.

Even though I wish Carlton had cancelled earlier in the day, I do appreciate that she was conscientious of the fact that I had spent the past nine months in bed with a compromised immune system. I wish she would have sent her adorable husband who we were all looking forward to spending time with. Anyway, I honestly just wanted to enjoy a beautiful night with old friends, new friends and family. We love to share the gift of music, as it always seems to be the unspoken language where people can just share and connect. Along with a couple of glitches and Brandi's unnecessary interruption of Joyce's sweet speech in Spanish, I think we accomplished just that as we ended up dancing the night away with Fraser, Clifton, Victor, and Remigio, the gorgeous tenors, which unfortunately you did not get to see.

I laughed and really enjoyed watching Lisa in action at the construction site. That is the funny side to her we all love. I was surprised to hear Brandi complain to Kyle about Lisa and I lecturing her about drinking because she knows I really dislike being around drunk women. My support and empathy for her as a friend won't change because of it but I also won't change my view on that topic either and I will continue to bug her about it.

Brandi losing Chica was extremely devastating for her and the boys; they had as strong of a relationship with Chica as we see Kim experience with Kingsley. Dogs are our best friends, as they love us constantly and unconditionally. Kim’s success story excites me more and more as I see her succeed. Watching her on The Arsenio Hall Show the other night just made me proud. She has come a long way and her strength and bright light are starting to shine.
