Rosie leaving us had a big effect on our household. She couldn’t have picked a worse time. But we moved so I understand the commute was too long for her. Nonetheless, I was really happy to see her and so were the kids. I’m grateful that even though she isn’t working for us anymore, she remains a friend. I am not as close with our current housekeeper as she’s fairly new, but I hope that she enjoys working for our family as much as Rosie did.

Rosie was with me through the worst part of my break-up so it isn’t surprising that she worries about me. I love that about her. I am getting happier and I’m moving forward with my life. I think Rosie left this visit feeling much better about my state of mind.

I was worried when Kelly said that she had to tell us something before it came out in the press. I thought she was in some sort of trouble. Instead, she had exciting news to share with us.

My first reaction when Kelly told us about Playboy was, what will her children think? I think it’s very hard for children at a young age to understand why their mother would want to pose nude. Hopefully the situation is easier for them since her husband took the photos and they attended the shoot. I think that Kelly's girls will be proud of their mother when they are old enough to read the magazine! Until then, I think it's best to keep the details vague until they are old enough to understand.

One of my mottos is, "Never complain and never explain." If Alex didn’t want to come to my house for the party, she should have just said that she couldn’t make it. Instead, she felt compelled to share how Ramona bullied her into staying at her party. Alex is a big girl and can make her own choices.
