I feel very badly that Lolly seems to be picked on with a few story arcs in this first season of our show. I know we are all tired of hearing about the closet, especially Lolly and Rich! Hopefully this story line is done with already! Lolly is a strong, confident, and independent woman working hard to pursue her career as an artist, and she is quickly growing a thick skin in dealing with the drama of these past few weeks. Keep up the great work, Lolls! I'm one proud Momma witnessing your growth and maturity over the last year.  

I loved the scene with Lynda and Deborah as we "saged" her new home! Lynda is a deeply spiritual person, and while Lynda and I don't necessarily share the exact same beliefs, I respect and honor her spiritual beliefs. It is what truly sets her apart as a special person with true heart and soul. I felt honored that Lynda would include me in the blessing of  her new home, what a memorable experience that was for me. I can't tell you how fun it is to have her back in the neighborhood, and running into her at the Safeway regularly now has been a hoot! It's a contest to see who has the better packed cart, don't miss the bonus clip of my special skills in packing a grocery cart! I wish Lynda love and blessings in her new home.  The "bad decorating" is officially gone with the amazing talents of our mutual dear friend Deborah Kalkstein of Contemporaria in DC.  Wait until you see the beautiful transformation that Lynda's home has gone through.   It's now truly spectacular!  

I have been inundated with requests about the origins of my favorite cross necklace! As is evident in the show, I love the piece and wear it almost every day. It has taken some time to research if the piece is still in production, as I purchased it several years ago on a trip to St. Maarten. I promise to share more news as it becomes available.

Thank you for the many kind words about my style and home as well! I am so humbled in hearing and reading such words of support and well wishes from so many! I'm looking forward to big fun this week when I visit "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen and meet one of the Amons family all time favorites, Jeff Lewis of "Flipping Out!" This Thursday at 10pm LIVE!
