And so we rejoin the festivities in Mexico. A confrontation was obviously needed. The bubble was about to burst, and the simmering pot was about to boil over. It had just been a matter of time.
What is sometimes difficult to remember as you, the viewer, follow the trail of these complicated scenarios is the fact that you have much more information than we do at the time.
You have witnessed LR stating her opinion regarding the Kim "close to dying" and also the enabling comment, but I was slowly watching the layers of this unfold, wondering if when confronted LR would cop to the fact and admit it. She had so much conviction as she denied all the assertions it was almost convincing, but I drew my knowledge from past experience. A past experience that still resonated, that was pretty traumatic, as I battled all of them last year.
We didn't see the tears outside, but it was disappointing once again now to see Eileen try to deflect from the crux of the matter and point a finger at me. I understand the need to defend a friend, but sometimes real friendship is guiding them in the right direction.
I hadn't interrogated Eden. I had actually pretty straightforwardly warned her to stop inserting herself in others' business, but she felt it necessary to include me.
Was there some sort of feeling of vindication? Hell yes. How could there not be as Rinna vociferously denied her statements that she carelessly made just a few short weeks ago about a precarious subject, including Kim's sobriety that she worked so hard for? The ramifications of those comments emotionally could be potentially huge for Kim and her family, and that doesn't sit well with me.
It was difficult last year as she claimed to have an accurate recall of a sentence which had transpired months before she brought it up, a sentence where we argued over three words as it changed the meaning and intention, but now she has no recollection of stating publicly such ludicrous claims. Selectively convenient one might say.
We had giggles on the bus and light-hearted banter, which was the poultice we all needed after a draining night.
I was relieved to be leaving, even though I had to tackle the intimidating and daunting task of speaking before Congress, a mission we had fought for many months.
A chance to stand up and speak our truths about the atrocities and crimes against humanity as thousands of dogs are slowly tortured during the summer solstice in China, known as the Yulin Dog Meat Festival.
To me, that is what life is all about, having the courage of your convictions, standing up for what we believe in and having truth in your heart.
When you are secure in the fact that your intention is well intended, you don't need to have a good memory. You can rely on your objective.
When you speak the truth, you are not challenged by questioning yourself as your intent will see you through.
And that is what is happening here. LR still has residual feelings against Kim, and that motivated her to speak to Eden. If she relied on her truth, she would remember those statements she made.
Eventually—you might have to show great patience—the truth will emerge.
So do keep watching, and we will get there eventually.
Have a good week and remember my mantra, love and laughter supersede all.
P.S. Kyle I do not have huuuuuge underwear, only the ones you left here a while back...
