It’s all about introductions, sex, romance... and insecurities

Watching Episode 2, you probably noticed my "red eyes" constantly, especially during the interviews. Well, I cried a lot during that time; I tried to put on a happy face, but there was a tragedy in the making. You will see as it unfolds. Looking back on it 5 months and 21 days later, it still brings tears to my eyes. It was a romance that ended in a tragedy like so many romances do.  Enough about that for now.  Let's put a smile on our faces and do what all “Housewives” do -- let’s talk about ourselves and “each other” (Housewife Qualification #2). You remember Housewife Qualification #1 -- let’s talk about "me."

So let’s get started !

The "Introductions"  

We got through the non-introduction, introduction: Rodolfo meet Ana, Ana meet Rodolfo. We've survived the introduction of too much introduction -- Marta meet Romain’s private part and the surrounding forest. And then there is the shout-out to Lenny's boob clients’ introduction -- introducing Mrs. Lenny Hochstein, yes ladies, he's married!  The evidence:  photos and more photos of "wife" on the walls.  We even got re-introduced to little miss piggy (Joanna, please -- red alert PETA). Where was Herman? Ooh, maybe he was around somewhere roasting another pig. (But I love him anyway. Every guy’s entitled to one vice…besides, otherwise he's perfect and has a picture-perfect wife, Alexia.)

And pirate ship, meet luxury yacht. I know you're thinking, “We’ve got a long way to go to get from here to there -- big closet, piano, and all.”  No worries, you can do it pirate ship! I know just how you feel, I feel it  too every time one of the bombshells (that would be the #RHOM bombshells) show up and showcase their picture perfect bodies as I try to zip up my jeans.  So we all have a little maintenance to do (and a few little insecurities). So now that we've gotten through the introductions...
