Hello again everyone!
Blog #2 coming in hot...
First, let me talk about the best thing that ever happened to me: Donnie! I am the luckiest girl in the whole world to have this man love me. We've been married for almost 14 years now and believe it or not, we are more in love with each other every day. Sorry if that makes you gag, but it's true! And he spoils me. OK...I'll stop now.
I was so happy to visit our good friend Stan Roth. Stan has been our jeweler and friend for many years, and he always manages to show me things that require hitting the Powerball jackpot to own. Those 10 carat earrings are still on my frontal lobe...I wish they were still on my ear lobes. Beyond ridiculously gorgeous! Next time...sigh.
I was very touched by watching Eileen's experience in Italy. I can't imagine losing one of my siblings...my heart broke when she shared her story. It's always devastating to hear the news of cancer with family, friends and loved ones but not knowing that her sister was terminal and having to say goodbye without being able to prepare must have been almost unbearable. Life is so precious. As I write this, I am also sensitive to the loss of Lisa Rinna's father. It's never easy saying goodbye.
I want to touch on one thing about Lisa Vanderpump before I go on to the malicious stuff.
I wasn't offended by Vanderpump's asking me my age, I'm very proud to say how old I am. Why wouldn't I be? And I am also very proud to have married my husband, regardless of our age difference. It's never mattered to me. Age is a number...I can be curious about age differences, too, but that's all it is. I want to understand couples and what makes them work. Maybe Vanderpump wanted to know what it was like to be with such a young, hot stud, haha...kidding Ken. I found Vanderpump's questions engaging and funny, but I am sure others might not see it that way. I guess that those are things I would also ask and then be surprised I offended someone. And that's all I have to say about that.
OK...so lets cut to the chase...here it is...this is what you really want to know.
My reaction to Faye was this: If she would have been more reticent with her feelings, I would have spoken differently to her, but from the moment we sat down at the table, Faye's body language, much like Rinna's description, was desperately trying not to engage with me. I saw her drinking shots before we sat down, and she was sheepish from the start.
She had an ignominious posture, and I knew she didn't want to go there. I thought about it...my wheels were turning, and I was playing it out in my head on fast forward.
As I said in this episode, I didn't go there looking for a fight, but if she wanted one, she was sure going to get it. Faye has a sordid past. I read her Wikipedia page (she should pay someone to clean that up), and she doesn't look like the face of truth and virtue. It would have been easy to touch on a few things to knock her down to size, but I am a lady, and engaging at Kyle's with such an intense subject would have ruined the dinner party--I mean the BBQ.
Faye's blanket apology to the table was general, but she doesn't know me to say more than that. All I wanted to see and hear was that she was sorry for what she had done, not just to me but to Nicole's memory. Desperate people do desperate things.
Erika, I don't read the Enquirer, do you? When Faye decided to share her story, she chose to pen the book with Mike Walker, a writer from the Enquirer. It was described as a "highly sensational, instant book" written by a self-proclaimed serious substance abuser. Faye spoke of the nights of partying and shared her intimacy with her "best friend." Excerpts of the book were on the cover of the Enquirer weekly, it was in quotes. I read what Faye had to say about me, I couldn't miss it at the grocery store checkout line...that was good enough. I'll pass on that page turner.
If Faye thinks that is the way to honor her best friend, who needs enemies? And in true Enquirer form, what she said regarding me is a lie. Couldn't I have just been abducted by martians instead?
Until next week..
