What a fabulous episode! Audriana's Big Fat Italian Christening! I loved reliving that day. What a special day. There is nothing better than celebrating milestones with your family and friends around you.
Remember that first episode of the season when Danielle hired a priest to talk about how she was a changed woman and that none of us go to church? I think we see how that turned out…
We are Roman Catholic and a baby's christening — dedicating their life to God — is such a special, joyous event. I am so honored I was able to share it with you guys. Of course it was over the top – it's a once in a lifetime event! But before any of the haters jump on me about it, realize it was filmed by Bravo at the Brownstone and planned by Dina. They obviously all took great care of me. Didn't Dina and I do a fantastic job planning it? Did you see how the lace on the cake matched the lace on Audriana’s dress? My absolute favorite was the Marie Antoinette serving sushi off her dress. How amazing was that?
And Christopher was a champ. He's a great guy and I think he definitely continue at the Brownstone and take over for his daddy one day (maybe soon… Caroline wants you home more Albert!)
OK, so to answer a few of your questions. The christening was at St. John's Cathedral in Paterson, NJ. My dress was Mandalay. The vintage baby carriage Audriana was in is Dina's. Her mama gave it to her as a gift when Lexi was born. Our first dance with Audriana was to "In My Daughter's Eyes" by Martina McBride.
One last note: Dina, I love you like a sister. You are a great godmother. Jacqueline, I loved seeing you and Ashley share a special moment, and Caroline crying... I'm so blessed to great friends. Even though we're not family, we're all family!
