How gut-wrenching was that reunion? One of my tweeters said "where do you girls get the intestinal fortitude," and it does take that! I felt the feelings that flew around the room, and I wanted to stay neutral, but I had to stay true to my own feelings as well.
If I am going to develop real friendships with Jill and Kelly, I sincerely think I have to say what and how I feel. What I can only hope is that they know I do it with no malice at all.
I am very self-conscience about seeing myself on television but I do feel people relate to me so it's worth it. If I can share something that is helpful, enlightening, make someone laugh, and maybe even make someone laugh at themselves, then I am happy. At least at this point! I have really mixed feelings about the show, but I have picked my poison and took it, and now I will see where it takes me. I say that with gratitude.
Whatever defenses Kelly had up during the reunion, I like and agree with what she said at the end. She said she grew. Besides, I also liked her switching the words to describe us from aggressive to assertive. So maybe I was right in the beginning. Real Housewives of NYC is the best of the franchise because we EVOLVE!
I loved the way LuAnn opened her heart and felt secure enough to share at the appropriate time her feelings about her divorce. I think she was right to wait. It is her business what she does in her marriage and it is her decision when to share.
I enjoyed my peaceful, but short time with Ramona, Alex, and Bethenny in St. John and look forward to more good times together celebrating life, love, health, beauty, glamour, and drama!
