It’s one thing to rock the boat and another to sink the ship. In this episode, we are celebrating my engagement to Tom on my friend’s yacht in Palm Beach. I had a lot of fun with the girls even though Ramona and Sonja wouldn’t stop obsessing about Tom. I felt bad that I lost my temper with Ramona, but I’d had enough of her making a couple of dates with Tom into something it wasn’t. As for Sonja, I understand that in the past she enjoyed Tom’s company and their friendship, and I want them to still be friends…just different kinds of friends!
Sonja’s rude comments about my party guests shows that while she’s cordial on the outside, on the inside she’s angry with me for taking Tom off the market. I invited an eclectic group of friends: gay, straight, socialites and silver foxes, and everyone had a great time, even Sonja who had fun chatting up a bachelor friend of mine. I loved watching Ramona dance to her own drummer and Jules working the bar like a pro! Tom enjoyed the night as well, and he was blissfully unaware that Ramona and Sonja were still focusing on him. That’s why I love him! His comment to Ramona about smelling like a grapefruit was innocent, and he was trying to be nice. I can assure you, the only gazing Tom did across the room that night was at me!
The next day was supposed to start in a very chill way with breakfast on deck yet ended up with me having to set Ramona straight about how she was going to act if she was to remain my guest. I did apologize to her and she to me, but the last time I checked, we live in a country with free press, and that press sometimes gets the facts wrong. That’s why there’s a thing called a retraction, which Ramona could have requested when the Post said she was Tom’s longtime friend rather than Sonja. I’ve known Ramona for a long time and we move past these disagreements, yet I wish she would think before she speaks. Am I asking too much of her?
Jules’ conversation that morning with her nanny and her kids was sweet, but her talk with Michael was pretty unpleasant. She grew up with wonderful parents and she expects Michael to be with their kids when she travels like her father was with her. It appears that he sent his kids to the Hamptons while staying back in the city, and I don’t think that this is so much of their problem as that Jules and Michael aren’t on the same page when it comes to their kids. Never a good thing.
We left Palm Beach after breakfast and headed down to Miami for the rest of the weekend. As usual, there was room drama but I was more interested in having a bite to eat and relaxing. When I arrived, I went to see how Bethenny was feeling and our conversation was very weird. Why would she ask if Tom and I are monogamous? We are engaged to be married! I felt like Bethenny was being very coy with me, not mean, not argumentative, but coy and it unsettled me. We’ve all had situations where we had to decide whether or not to tell a friend about something we’ve heard, and every situation is different. I’m still unsure if Bethenny’s heart is in the right place.
Until next week, be kind.
