Everyone has been concerned about Sonja. Everyone sees the stress she is under, and looks to me for the answers. I wasn't trying to be mean or rude when I spoke about Sonja to Carole and LuAnn. I wanted to share the nature of the stress Sonja was feeling and how I felt it was effecting her. I hoped once they understood the situation they could be more supportive and understanding. Sonja holds things in a lot, and it's her nature to always be positive. I felt it was important to share with LuAnn and Carole what actually was going on in Sonja's life
I, too, read the book The Secret. I was following their rules on my own before I even read the book, and then it helped me even more.
But sometimes all the positive thoughts in the world won't change a situation, and I just wanted Sonja to be prepared. I respect the idea she is focused on what she wants from life and that she doesn't live in fear. I truly believe positive thoughts create positive thoughts, too. What you put out in the universe will come to you.
Dinner time has always been very special for us as a family. I enjoyed watching Aviva with her family as the dinner table. Before Avery went to college, we would have family dinners four times a week. It's important to have discussions and catch up around the dinner table.
I never called Ben's mother. A friend of Ben's mother called me and asked if it was true that Sonja is dating Ben. I said: "Yes, Sonja is dating Ben." I also asked him what kind of guy Ben was. That was the entire conversation. Sonja flipped out on me over this. It was totally innocent on my end and I wasn't looking to create a problem for her.
Kristen was in the water in a bathing suit at the spa! I got so annoyed when she was adding her comments of what she felt what was going on between Sonja and I. I said, "Why are you adding fuel to the fire Kristen? Kristen I am putting out the fire!" and I tossed my champagne, which is wet, into the water she was in, which is wet.
Then Kristen proceeded to get my hair wet, which I just had done, annoying me further. To me, if I am in a pool of water and someone tosses wine or champagne at me it is more playful than mean.
Getting my freshly styled hair wet when you know I am going to an event is below the belt
