I shouldn't say Kristen or Carole are bad hostesses. They just dont have the experience I have. It's been my business for decades now. I throw parties every week. I have dinner every night at my home, for no less then five people on average, and sometimes I have last minute dinners for tens of people impromptu. I'm asked many times to organize a Sonja In the City event in a matter of days. When someone else's plan falls through they can always count on me.
I also have huge team of people I have cultivated over years to do public relations, sponsor events, perform, help with the invites, RSVPs, decor, and anything you can think of when throwing throwing an event. For example the Sonja In The City charity event in East Hamption became tricky because I needed places for 90 actors, Broadway performers, dancers, and singers to stay. That was not easy, but my contacts over the years came through. Hotels, homes, yachts, you name it, they stayed there.
I am used to providing service, press, celebs, and a good mix of people and decor to create atmosphere to make sure the party goes into the wee hours and without incident! It's particularly important if you are on a private island or yacht. You don't want to be trapped with an unfortunate situation, like "Scary Island" (which I tried to circumvent) and have to fly someone out. I don't think Carole or Kristen have to be worried about creating that kind of atmosphere! I am critical of hosting, since it is my business, but I'm not that critical!!!
After geocaching I was happy Ramona took the initiative to have refreshments. I kept saying "Who has the refreshments?" They should have had a golf cart with a cooler. You didn't hear me saying that. I was dying in the dry woods looking for a box with dice in it as our prize. One piece of the dice! How do you say one dice? Die? Yes DIE! That what I wanted to do. It was hot, dry and dusty and no refreshements. Then you win one piece of the dice. Die.
I didn't want to wake up for glamping, but there is no fighting Ramona. You roll with the punches. She would not go without me for sure! I'm like her lucky penny. Boney Sony. She even wore my purple marchesite necklace from Mazzani Jewels inside out and upside down. It's supposed to go on doubled. She doesn't care as long as she has something of mine on. It makes her feel close to me.
When LuAnn says I'm like family it's because she knows we have that trust level. So why is she questioning it? I know our relationship will always be there because she is obviously going through something. People who know us both and especially my friends of decades know I wouldn't throw her under the bus. So her perception is just that her perception. Obviously I'm not jealous of her. I always want her happy. Hell! Who wants a friend nagging on them? We have only been friends for five or six years and mostly socially -- so I don't need to see this side of Lu!
The fight with Heather and Kristen wasn't surprising at all since Kristen has been outwardly judgmental and critical of everyone. For a new friend, I find it strange, but I see so many come and go. It's really not my concern. I thought she was fine as a social friend. It's when she called me delusional with her husband while not knowing my businesses nor my business plan that I decided I better not waste my valuable energy helping her. That's not the kind of friends that I have built my life with. I do NOT think what I have built is delusional. It's VERY REAL and I spend LONG, real days managing my businesses that I have worked on building since 14 years old. I have created tens of millions of dollars. I do not ask my girlfriends what they do to manage their finances and businesses. I support their dreams. I listen. I have built what I have from love and light, not from fear. I will continue to build while others try to poo poo my vision. There will always be those who are naysayers. But I have achieved much through visualization and will continue to dream and manifest.
