Laughter and Tears

For me this episode showed the most laughter and the most tears.

I never laughed so hard as when Karent, the girls, and I were in the kitchen during breakfast. Even the chef was amused. When Karent started with the "shopping for diamonds" -- really laughed till I cried. Karent: winner of an Emmy. So much fun.
 
And the tears, Lisa, so felt your pain. My hope for her is she can enjoy the process, because it’s just a matter of time before babies are on the way.

And then Karent’s dad getting sick and going to the hospital while she felt stranded there. Karent is so close to her parents, and she should be admired for how good she is to them and how she cares for them. Thank goodness that this story ended well, and that she was able to get off the island despite the weather and he's now doing great.


So it was an interesting weekend filled with a little bit of everything and a whole lot of nothing.

Things to think about this week:

Is it easier to speak to people to their face until everyone feels they've been heard? Or easier to speak behind everyone’s back and hope the gossip doesn't get heard?

What things in life are worth one compromising truth and goodness for? Or if we just speak the truth and spread the goodness, can everyone win?Is "looking good" so important to us that we would engage in untruthful or disingenuous behavior just to protect something we could perhaps just acknowledge and move forward from?

And gossip is a state of mind -- geography doesn't change it. 

Spread the love, keep the peace, and #don't deal with stupid.

By the way, many of you asked about the handbag I wore at the premiere, it’s my personal design available at www.theworldofleablack.com. And if you watched Watch What Happens Live, callers mentioned my face looked “refreshed.”  For all my beauty secrets, visit www.theworldofleablack.com or www.suddenyouth.com! Enjoy!

Lea's Double Standards

Adriana explains why she was so surprised by Joanna and Lea's behavior.

I would like to start by saying that I tried my best to bond with Joanna and remain friendly after attending her bachorelette party and wedding. I truly was hoping for a budding friendship. All season long, she criticized me in her weekly blogs, criticized my wedding, and even then I took the high road and didn't engage in the low blows and continued hostility she has demonstrated towards me for a while now. However, I couldn’t stay quiet any longer when she started to attack my credibility. Enough is enough! I've learned that bullies like her will not stop the attack until you stand your ground. She showed me her true colors when she stated she wanted “to rip my head off.” Such aggressive behavior like that could no longer be ignored. Joanna is always stating that she is beautiful and because of that she thinks she has license to act UGLY!

Furthermore, I couldn't remain silent while she was attacking Lisa and being so cold to her and her struggle with infertility. Claiming that Lisa is a party girl and is always drinking is not the attitude of a friend. Joanna and Lisa had been friends and even had dinner together the night before and all was well between them, until Joanna decided to turn on Lisa... I was shocked, how can a friend blatantly attack her friend with such coldness?! She should not talk about things she knows nothing about!
