It is 100 degrees outside! It is August? I am really loving my time off and trying to reconnect with friends I haven't seen all winter. Last weekend Bobby's sister Zina and her husband came to visit us from Florida. We had a great time and went to a few BBQs in the Hamptons. I went back to the city to see my friend Irina Dvorovenko in Lady of Camellias at the MET. This weekend I am hosting some of my girlfriends from Harpo/Oprah, who were so generous and invited me and my family to see one of Oprah's final shows. They have never been to the Hamptons so I am obsessing over what to show them. Allyson comes home this weekend from Africa. I will post some of her photos in next weeks newsletter, which you can sign up for at jillzarin.com.
Now onto the show!
I really wish I believed Ramona's feelings about our talk. She hits below the belt and thinks it's OK. I can't listen to her continue to say she sometimes puts her foot in her mouth and thinks that it is alright to do so -- only to then throw stones at me if I say something she doesn't like. I really don't know what to do about our relationship at this point. I guess we'll see what happens at the reunion.
The scene when Alex walked in on LuAnn was so funny. Alex said Ramona was vulnerable and sad, giving us the image of her crying upstairs and all the while Ramona and Sonja were laughing and sneaking out of the house. Ramona's pain over our fight didn't last long did it?
Afterwards, I was really trying to be nice to Alex and see if we could have a friendship. I know she felt better after I walked over. I was happy.
The trip to Morocco was truly amazing -- the riad, the souk, the camel ride to the tent in the desert, just to name a few. I want to thank Luann for being the hostess. I know we're not the easiest group! It was also nice to meet up with my dear friend Brad in such an amazing place. In midst of all the drama, I have special memories that will live in my heart forever. I hope that all of you enjoyed watching these episodes and seeing the beauty and mystery of this exotic country.
