I went to the bridal expo at Miami Beach Fashion Week to help Adriana plan her wedding ceremony to Fredric. Since Adriana was late, I had to socialize with the “three musketeers.” This was the first time in months I had seen them. It was uncomfortable and awkward for me, since I had not spoken to them about the issues that have surfaced within this group.
According to news reports, Fredric and Adriana have been legally married for the last 5 years. Nobody wanted acknowledge this elephant in the room, so I did. I also want to mention that there is a big difference in my mind between a marriage license and a ceremony. One is a legal document and the other is what every woman wants to experience -- a beautiful, magical day filled with flowers, beauty, and a celebration to be shared with friends and family. Adriana never had that with Fredric. I hate when everyone avoids the obvious and doesn't speak up. Ana, of course, had to talk down to someone (me), because that’s what she does. Although not very well. She seems to enjoy belittling people. If I needed her “help,” I would have asked, but I only ask for advice from people who are winning in life.
Just to be clear, I wasn't trying to talk negatively about Adriana with the other women. I obviously knew she was about to walk into our conversation at any moment, and I simply wanted to get it out into the open while giving her a fair opportunity to tell her side of the story. She deserves that.
I decided to have the group over to my house so we could reconnect after all the craziness from the past months.
