This week’s episode brought back so many lovely memories from my birthday! It’s mind-boggling to think that last year I was butting heads with Lisa R and Erika, and this year PK invited them to my birthday dinner at Lisa V’s restaurant Villa Blanca. You know I love a good Birkin, but no birthday present could outshine the moment when my sweet Jagger surprised me in his white tuxedo. Jagger calling Erika and Lisa V “bad guys” was nothing short of an innocent 3-year-old expressing himself through his imagination, as he was in a phase where he loved superheroes and bad guys. On another note, can we talk about Lisa R standing up and giving a speech at my birthday party? For a second, I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone, but after all I’m grateful that we’re in a more peaceful place now.
When Teddi invited us to her horse competition in San Diego, I couldn’t wait to see her ride and, of course, to take advantage of a fierce Kentucky Derby fashion moment. As soon as we stepped on the dirt, though, I knew Lisa R was right to roll up wearing jeans and cowboy boots. I had no idea a "VIP area" meant we’d be sitting on a picnic table with a blanket thrown over it! Oh well. I still love a chance to dress up.
In case you didn’t know, I love to cook! I grew up watching my mom express her love through food, and I followed in her footsteps. I’m very particular about my table settings, and I believe no dinner party is complete without a divine dinnerware set, like the one I splurged on! I wanted to have a one-on-one dinner with Teddi and Edwin because I’m excited for PK and I to get to know them better. From what I’ve heard Teddi say about her childhood, she’s very humble and down to earth, and those are rare qualities to come by in this town.
Over dinner, I felt comfortable opening up to Teddi about my tribulations with Lisa R. Teddi was clueless as to what transpired between us, and I was merely explaining why I feel I should be cautious as Lisa R and I enter this new phase of our relationship. Still, I’m going into it with an open mind and an optimistic outlook.
See you next time!
Sincerely, Dorit xo
