LuAnn discusses the term "Indian," her musical mishap, and Sonja's outburst.
Welcome back my friends and thank you for watching and reading!
In this episode, it's Christmas time and I'm sure Santa was watching to see who's NAUGHTY and nice. As I write this, it's mid-summer and I'm looking forward to attending the GLAAD Manhattan fundraiser this week. I’ll be joining some of the ladies to support the LGBT community. For more information, go to Glaad.org/manhattan.
Sonja can invite whomever she wants to her business meetings, but she should have known that asking Ramona to attend was going to upset Heather. I thought Ramona taking a phone call during the meeting was disrespectful to Heather and her team. Sonja calling herself a client was a stretch, since Heather was doing this as a favor. I hope that Sonja goes with her intuition and chooses to promote her products and business with a branding strategy that she believes in.
Lately, Carole never seems to miss an opportunity to criticize me. Have you noticed that when I say "tomato" she says "tomahto"? She never seems to pass up an opportunity to put me down and I'm while I’m trying to be polite and friendly, I do have my limits.
Let the facts speak for themselves. The US Census Bureau surveyed people of various races and what they liked to be called and over 49 percent of American Indians preferred to be called American Indian while 37 percent said that Native American was their preference. Furthermore, the museums dedicated to American Indian heritage in Washington D.C. and New York City are both called the Museum of the American Indian. I think the Indian people have spoken and Carole doesn't seem to be listening.
When I watched the scene where Mario confronts Jacques, I was impressed by Jacques' graciousness and composure. Couldn't Mario have found a more private moment to tell Jacques how he felt about the wine tasting? Jacques reiterated to Mario that the event was called "wine games". . .it was supposed to be a fun event and Ramona seemed to enjoy herself -- until her husband made a big deal about the games being a set-up. At this point, I'm tired of discussing the wine event. . .time to move on.
Jacques and I have been talking about having a child together for a while now, and he would like to have children -- but it is not a deal breaker for our relationship. I love him very much and if we have a child together it would make us both very happy. I know that I said that I would have a baby to keep Jacques but I didn't mean it the way it sounded.
It was very inappropriate for Sonja to share her feelings about my relationship with Jacques at a party in front of the women. Sonja's outburst at Jacques wasn't about Jacques, it was about her and the pain she stills feels over her marriage. She got pretty worked up, but Jacques, always a gentleman, listened to Sonja politely even if he completely disagrees.
The band I booked for the Life & Style party was supposed to be quirky and fun, not vulgar and loud!! I'd seen this band at another party with Jacques and their repertoire did not include the naughty song you heard blasted out of a bullhorn. Carole loved them, apparently, but I was horrified and I apologized to Life & Style and to my friends for the musical mishap.
Until next week, bisous!
