First off, I'm sorry for my lack of blogging. I was overwhelmed with the holidays and taking care of Storm, my now 5th dog/puppy. She is like having a newborn baby. Doesn't sleep through the night yet and is not potty trained. And you cannot take your eyes off her for one second! She is going to be about 150 pounds and is a full-time job. Throwing that in on top of everything else has been a little challenging, but I wouldn't change it for the world. I'm already totally in love with her.
I would also like to state how much I dislike the word "panties," and we have already heard it a lot this season. Sorry, had to say that. Now onto my blog.
We pick up at Camille's where the ladies are having lunch. Dorit defends buying Erika the underwear saying she was just trying to make light of the situation. Knowing what I know now, I believe Dorit feels bad the topic ever came up and didn't mean to be hurtful in buying Erika the underwear. She assumed Erika would take it like SHE would have presumably and laughed it off. We all react to things differently, and Erika is self-admittedly guarded as it is. Dorit didn't think of it as seriously as Erika did. I also would have been hurt by that, but we are all still getting to know each other, and at this point Erika and Dorit had just met.
On to Game Night...
Anyone who knows me knows I love any excuse to have a party/entertain. The idea of Game Night sounded fun to me in spite of past ones we have had. One can always be hopeful.
The night was actually so fun, and we could not stop laughing. I love those kind of nights!
Eden came in not really knowing anyone and was sweet, energetic and ready to have fun with all of us. I like that about her. Dorit was making me laugh with all her compliments towards Eden. Dorit is also a lot of fun and always makes me laugh. I laughed watching Dorit and Eden having their conversation by the pool and being constantly interrupted by my dog Bambi wanting them to throw her ball repeatedly. Story of my life.
After the games we all sat outside and things turned heavy. Eileen brought up the situation with Dorit and Erika. At this point I'm confused and not sure why everyone is so upset when it's really between Erika and Dorit. And like Erika said, the more we talk about it, the bigger it gets. I certainly wasn't ganging up on Dorit when I said I think Erika was blindsided. I said it to her face without knowing Eileen said the same thing. It was a safe assumption. I feel like the more conversations we have about it and the more people involved, the harder it's going to be for Erika and Dorit to get past it.
Kim and Lisa Rinna start in again. I was thinking they were going to be okay at the beginning of the evening, but they are like oil and water and should probably just stay clear of one another. Easier said than done though.
They went back and forth regarding their past issues, and then Rinna threw out "let's talk about your arrest." That's where the evening ended for me. It was a low blow. Very low. I felt bad for Kim and knew she must have been humiliated, but she handled it well. Because she is in such a good place, she was able to hold her head high and not let it get the best of her.
I was worried that Kim and Eden were going to get into it once Eden started offering advice without really knowing their history. Fortunately, that didn't happen. And I know Eden meant well.
The evening ended with a lot of awkwardness and still unresolved feelings between Eileen and Dorit, Kim and Rinna and Erika and Dorit.
At least the actual game part of Game Night was fun. Right?
Until next week...
