Holy Mother of Oldness...Yet another birthday on TV! My BFF Ricky decided he wanted to throw me an ALL girl birthday party (yes, Ricky is one of the girls, Marcos was there too but he would get mad if I called him one of the girls) and I was very honored. This year was all about taking it down a notch and having lunch with my Ho's and Mo's was more than enough for me. I don't even know what MO means, Ricky has always called himself "My Mo."
Vicki was invited and confirmed she would be there. It was just a few minutes from her office and everyone takes a lunch...If you work or not! I had a feeling that she was going to back out after our hike in Coto. Things were a little weird between us, so I understand. It did feel a little strange that she sent David in with a gift and I almost didn't want to accept it.
I was really happy that Lynne and all my close friends were there. We were all afraid to see the footage. My friend Fernanda brought a bottle of cachaça (a Brazilian drink) and it kicked our booty. That reminds me, she has a Brazilian booty DVD that will kick anyone's booty www.brazilianbootyworkout.com. My friend CJ (cute Blondie in purple) who happens to own www.blissfulchick.com surprised me with some pretty interesting adults gifts that I begged the producers NOT to show. Then there was Jenn with her "Virgin again" pills. After a couple shots of cachaça and a XXX Martini from Infusion we suddenly turned into "Housewives Gone Wild." But I would have to say we had a blast, it was a birthday I will never forget!
Simon also wanted to take me out for dinner and planned this romantic dinner... gone wrong. What you didn't see was a couple hours before dinner we got into a HUGE argument and I tried to cancel the dinner. Inevitably we decided to keep our plans. As you could tell it was very awkward and UN-romantic. I tried hard to make the best of it with humor, I even tried to lick his face...who doesn't like that? Simon was having NO part of it. His comment about Hitler was uncalled for and I just wanted to change the subject as fast as I could. From what I have heard he apologized to Vicki for that comment and said he was just using it as an example.
When Lynne called me and told me she was moving in with her Mom and that Frank was moving into a hotel, I felt so bad for them. I knew I needed to go talk to her in person and let her get out some of her aggravation. So I showed up with Bitch wine and Pure-fit bars...that's kind of healthy, right? With everything I was going through in my personal life it was hard for me to give her advice. I knew at the time that my situation was much worse and I was headed for divorce. None of the other Housewives really knew what I was going through. I hid my problems very well, it was my way of dealing with them. It really was a hard time in both our lives and I think that is really what brought us so close this season.
I cant believe that the season is over next week. I would like to say it went by fast but actually for me it seemed like it was never going to end. I am ready to move on and NOT have to rehash what happened last summer week after week. Things are looking up and Simon and I have realized that we are better parents apart than we are together. Thank you to everyone for all the support and wonderful uplifting emails I get daily.
