Lastly, Lauri saying that I had multiple men during my marriage to Donn is another lie. Truth of the matter is I am in a male-dominated industry and I have a lot of male friends. I respect myself enough to know that I am not that person who Lauri insinuated me being. I am a mother and a businesswoman first; a loving person, and I have moral integrity. It's been hard enough for me to expose some the truth on this show that I was not proud of, but I won't tolerate lies. I feel sorry for Lauri that she felt she had to stoop this low and the only thing I can do is pray for her. Bottom line is I know who I am when no one is looking, and I sleep well at night knowing I am a godly woman who has moral integrity.
Now that I have that cleared up -- onto Mexico. Phew. As most of you know, I have a condo in Puerto Vallarta. We have travelled there on the show a few times in the past so when I found out we were going back there my only goal was to get the girls to my favorite bar Andale's. I have been going there for over 25 years now, and I know all the local bartenders and waitresses. It always has good music and anyone I bring there always has a great time.
I had mentioned to the girls that I wanted to take them to a fun bar. Gretchen and Heather both said they were up for it, and then through the evening they said they were tired. Lydia, Tamra and I waited over 20 minutes outside the restaurant for them, and we wanted to go to Andale’s. We relayed back to the hostess and to let them know we were going to walk there, and for them to grab a cab. It's obvious from looking at the show that they never got that message, but that wasn't our fault. They knew where we went, and if they really wanted to join us they could have. They knew where we went so I don't understand how they acted like we "ditched" them.
Tamra, Lydia and I walked about 30 minutes to get to the bar, and along the way we bought those flashing rabbit ears. It was so much fun to wear those. I know it wasn't another good hair night for me, as the humidity and my hair turn out to be brutal on me.
