Allyson only has two weeks left of high school. I have never been busier in my life. We are planning some big trips over the next six months to help me with the "empty nest" syndrome. It keeps my mind off the fact that Ally is leaving! If you have any ideas that have helped you get through this part of life, please let me know! I was just talking to my sister, Lisa, last night about my fears and she has a special guest on her radio show this Friday who wrote a book about it. Lisa's show is on daily from 4-6PM. She just won a Gracie Award for her interview with Gloria Steinem. If one good thing comes out of this show, it is introducing my sister Lisa Wexler to the world. She is incredibly smart, articulate and a gifted writer and radio host all in one. I listen to her show almost every day to learn about what is going on in the world. It is easier to listen to her show than to read four newspapers. If I miss a show, I can download it to my iPhone. Go to http://lisawexler.com/ and I promise you will learn something or hear something interesting. Right now she is advocating for a woman who has been jailed in CT for not paying her mortgage payments. It stems from an ugly divorce but it is beyond unjust and Lisa (who is also an attorney) is trying to "rally troupes" to help save this woman and her two underage children now with a mother in jail and no means to make money to "pay" the mortgage. I am so proud of you Lisa.
As many of you know, I have been on a book tour with my sister Lisa and Mom. I have had the best time of my life and it isn't over. The book did so well that it just sold to a Japanese publisher to be translated. The show doesn't even air in Japan so we were really excited that they bought the book on its merit alone. We have received so many letters from people who read the book that told us how it has helped them...That we reminded them of even the simplest things in life that we often forget like "make sure your children know you love them everyday and is as many ways as you can" or Gloria's "Must have qualities in a husband and the must avoids." If you are single and read her list, you might save yourself a lot of heartache. We hope to visit more places over the new few months including Florida, Boston and RI. If you have questions for any of us, email us through www.secretsofajewishmother.com and sign up for our newsletter for book tour and personal appearance updates!
I am writing this from my parents' living room in "Boca" spending quality time with them and Allyson. You never know what life will throw at you so embrace your loved ones as much as you can. Love has a 100% cure rate for everything.
I am excited that the Jersey Girls are back in town!
Dear Jill, I fell bad that you damaged your friendship with Bethany. I so enjoyed watching you guys last season. I think you guys still love each other. There are just too many hurt feelings right now. I really think you reacted so strongly to feeling abandoned by Bethany, during Bobby's crisis, because you were angry and scared about his condition. I think you couldn't express those feelings, so you transfered your anger to Bethany instead. It's just sad the poor communication between friends was the cause of all the drama. I do think you let it go on too long. Bethany reached out to you several times and you refused to hear her out. I understand that people disappoint us, and I hope you guys move past this. I think you are a sincere and brave person to admit you were wrong in how you handled things. I think you had a right to feel hurt and let down. I hope you can mend the fence. Until then God bless you and your family. I'm so happy Bobby is ok. I really like your husband, he's always so wise and calm in the storm.
Sorry I disagree with your actions. After repeated attempts by alex ramona and not least of all bethany, you kept the fight going till the public tide turned against you.
Jill, You need a personality make-over. Maybe Bravo will have that reality show. I think you will do anything to be on camera and have all of the attention. You just don't get it. The reason Bethany has her own show is because although she is so truthfully honest, she has a loving heart and positive energy. I think you are so self- absorbed. I am not saying you cannot change. You should learn from your mistakes as we all do and then decide to change for the better.
Jill, I love the show, and I think you are awesome, You do have your self together, not only are you beautiful,classy, I like your character. To see you with your chihuahua, I like it, we also have a chihuahua , we treat ours with the same love as you. Don't listen to anyone, you have a nice personality, taste, and on and on. the comment above on your personality, that person knows nothing. You are a decent mom ,wife ,friend etc:
