Miss Understood

Catherine Ommanney is trying to improve, while still keeping true to herself.

"In Washington D.C. you got to watch what you say, and watch what you do." Oh really??? I got that part majorly wrong then!! Whoops.

I’m not really someone who edits myself and yes we "all" agree I do sometimes need to. This whole experience has taught me many things about myself, the way I can come across unintentionally, and the way people perceive me. I am pretty misunderstood, and I am always learning in the hope of improving whilst keeping true to myself. (I definitely laugh masses when no one else is so it must just be me!)

“If you cant take it, don’t dish it” True. I agree. The difference is that other than the Salahis (and their sidekicks) I have not intentionally been rude to anyone over the past seven episodes. I really haven’t. I tease people, Mary over the Lolly issue etc. but we (cast) all know it’s in jest and in no way malicious. The fact that I’ve appeared to be, is what it is, and since I genuinely really adore all my other fellow cast members, even when we clash on opinions, I would never set out to try to upset them. Honesty over bitchiness any day. Even with Edwina (Republican lobbyist) we actually got on very well and shared many laughs. It’s good to debate! I saw her again for dinner too, and even though we are very different I found her good company and a good sport!

Lunch scene with Lynda and Mary: I am ALWAYS eating. Have you noticed? Any scene where there is food I’m all over it.

 

I truly believed and still do to this day, that if the Salahis were honest people they would have better karma with their business affairs. Better luck. More friends and be respected. Dream on?...

 

So when I talk about their "winery," and I’m asking the ladies, “Why weren’t they straight up and say that they are in trouble?” I meant it when I said we could have all supported their efforts to "rebuild" rather than to "rebullshit." I was still deeply confused by them and their "extraordinary" spin on everything?

Great fun fashion show and "naughty lovely Paul" was making me giggle the entire show across the room (especially when he managed to get himself a sneaky cosmo and dab it like perfume on his neck). David Catania (who I adore too) who was sitting next to him, was close to wetting himself with Paul as always, hugely entertaining charades that night and very red cheeked!! It was a beautiful event.

I was always incredibly proud of Charles and his work, hence that scene with giving that award-winning picture to Mr. President. It’s a great shame that it was never to materialize -- stay tuned. Hope that is the last time I have to see us together -- now we are on the home stretch with the finale episode next week.

Stacie’s search for her birth father still gives me goosebumps as it’s such a great story, and I wish her all the love and luck in the world that that dream becomes a reality. She deserves to find those answers after all this time.

On the opposite end of reality: What was Michaele looking so desperately for in her bag, back seat, and the boot of that car? She said it was for her bra and shoes? Along with her dignity? Pride? Self respect or lip gloss? (Oh sorry, my mistake, it was her invitation to the White House state dinner... .)

When Michaele says “Lynda’s so jealous of me” I nearly wet myself laughing too. LMAO!

My final word tonight in the "preview" for the finale to her was “Take it!!!" Is that my t-shirt logo calling? Lynda’s “Goat Rodeo?” Mary’s  “Integrate salons NOW?” Stacie’s “Tyra Bank’s lover”? Michaele’s ”Simply deluded”.... Her own words “Humble and quiet?”....

Thank god, when I went to spell check this blog, the only flag was the word "Salahis." That still comes up as "salami." There is justice after all.

Thanks to all of you for your comments as always. I know it sounds really cheesy, but it actually means more than you realize in every way!! Seriously does.

A little quote to leave you with: “Most people seem to be interested in turning their dreams into reality. Then there are those who turn their reality into dreams. I belong to the latter group.” -Allen Say
