Eileen: Brooke Was a Gorgeous Bride
Eileen discusses the ladies' daughters and why her niece feels like the daughter she never had.
Wow! What an emotional episode of RHOBH! I teared up a few times watching this one.
My heart went out to Yolanda after hearing her father had died in a car accident. I can understand how that only added to the fear and confusion of Bella getting a DUI. What an awakening, realizing that you can't protect your children forever, that they have to fly and be on their own. So, so scary for us as parents, but that's the reality. I hate that!
Lisa R.'s daughter Delilah is gorgeous! And funny, too. Just like her mom. What a good friend she is supporting Lisa V., who, by the way, looked stunning receiving her star in Palm Springs. I love how much she has done for the gay community, and I have so much respect for her for standing up for equality. Both Lisas looked hot, and not just because it was 115 degrees!
Kim's daughter Brooke was a gorgeous bride. What a sweet and beautiful couple she and her new groom make! The wedding was beautiful, too, and the emotion so deep. Very touching with her ex-husband Monty being there. My husband Vincent has known Monty for years from the poker world. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and their family during this special, yet very challenging time.
Love the peeps I work with. Melissa Ordway plays my daughter, and Sean Carrigan plays my co worker/oops-we-had-a-one-night-stand. Both funny, funny people and so talented. Love 'em. And Patti Denney! My make up artist on Y and R. I have known Patti for...32 years! OMG! She's great at makeup and a good friend. The crew is fabulous, too. Y and R feels like home to me. Gee, I wonder why. I pretty much started my career there.
And then there's my niece, Annamarie. She is my sister Connie's only child. My sister was a single mom, and and I helped raise her daughter. I have always had a very strong connection with Annamarie, and I love her dearly. She's an amazing young woman with a huge heart, great sense of humor, and immense talent. Jesse and Annamarie are more like siblings than cousins, and they adore each other. Sadly, really devastatingly, Connie died from complications due to breast cancer last March. There's so much to say, and yet I don't know how to begin. I guess I'm just so grateful to have Annamarie in my life. She truly has become the daughter I never had.
It was really an emotional episode, in so many ways. We chicks are living our lives. The highs and the lows...
