Here we are in the Hamptons, my home away from home. I'm loving that John and Dorinda were with us that weekend, because we had such a great time having them; tons of fun, laughs and an all-around good time as always. We are all here to celebrate Bethenny's birthday on Saturday, a tailgate-themed party, and I always love a good festive theme. The party was very well done, every "I" was dotted and every "T" crossed, yet the energy was off. The tension was high, and it was hard to relax and enjoy. The one good thing, though, is that I got to meet Luann for the first time! She is absolutely lovely, fun, warm and welcoming. I loved my first impression of her--she was nothing but sweetness.
Although we are under construction, I did want to invite my new friends to my home for a casual brunch. I even made a joke for everyone to bring their "hard hats." I couldn't imagine why anyone would care. The house is a big project, but we are enjoying the process of building it and feel very blessed.
I love to entertain. There is nothing better than being surrounded by friends and family. It makes me happy to see people smile and having fun while hosting. I love meeting new people and starting new friendships. I've always been great at that.
I was disappointed that the girls couldn't stay long. At the time, I was hoping to get to know everyone better and them to know me. It was hurtful to hear some things that were said in my home behind my back, and even out of my home, but maybe the "smorgasbord" that divided us really was the issue. I may not be a bagel lover, but I do love me some Goldberg's lox and veggie shmear-- it is my absolute favorite! Trust me, I had tons of it through the morning.
Stay tuned for next week's episode, where you will get to know more about my story.
Until next time
