I’m finally back in the OC with the rest of the girls and am so excited that you get to meet my cousin, Bridget this week! And yes, it might have slipped my mind to ask her for her qualifications to be a nanny, but I’ve known her my entire life and it was definitely the best decision. It turns out she's very qualified and has been a nanny prior to working for us. I love that I’m able to have someone that I know and trust!
It was so nice to see Kelly Dodd after months of only talking via texts – even if some of the texts weren’t the nicest. I had texted Kelly after I heard a rumor and decided that I should go straight to the source to clear it up. I honestly thought that it was okay for me to ask her about the rumor because I know that Kelly has been open about her non-traditional marriage. She has talked about being publicly separated previously and being engaged to another man during the course of her marriage. I didn’t mean any harm by asking her about it, but unfortunately, that’s how it was perceived. Kelly even acknowledges that how she goes after people isn't exactly “normal,” so I wasn’t shocked when I later got the text from her about Jimmy. Hurt? Yes. But definitely not surprised. I didn't want the added stress of a friend being mean to me while I was pregnant, so I more or less it go at the time. Like they say, time heals all wounds - or does it? Stay tuned.
Tamra Judge's speech at the Erasing Family event was so powerful. It was profound to see her dad and her son there with her for support. The stats on alienation are crazy – I had no idea! I’m so proud of Tamra for getting up and telling her story. Being a stepmom, I know that adults can easily be selfish and not put the kids first, so I’m happy that we don’t have that situation in our blended family.
The birthday party theme that Lydia McLaughlin chose for Stirling turned out so cute (and drama free)! That was such a fun and unique idea! It was funny to watch Vicki Gunvalson and Peggy Sulahian's reactions to the crowns in the kitchen and the fairy dust. I’m definitely with Peggy when she said that fairy dust is hard to clean and she doesn’t want it on her – no thank you!
I've done a pretty good job staying out of the drama so far...looks like that might change next week!
