And here we are ...round five! Hope you all had a good holiday!
When Nathalie said she wanted to have a surprise for Guillermo. I was immediately excited at the prospect. This is a man that hates celebrating his birthday and always refuses to celebrate. Well not so this year. . .I have a wonderful relationship with Guillermo and the four of us have shared some special moments in the creation of this restaurant.
He epitomizes the American dream. He came here as a dishwasher, then a busser, then a waiter, then a manager. Then I came in for lunch and overnight we shook hands we became partners. The rest is history.
So to see Nathalie be able to buy him a Mercedes was a moment I relished. The cake and the party was all a success, and he surprisingly adored the attention -- and we will probably have to do it now every year!
Jax was struggling with the news that he had discovered a lump. He has such a history with being economical with the truth, so that it is a classic example of the boy who cried wolf. But I wish Stassi had been more compassionate towards him, regardless of their situation. I was also shocked at all the junk they put in their body. It has to have some effect. I really felt that Jax was hoping Stassi would come over and not chastise him, but give him a sympathy shag. I do believe he was genuinely concerned but also wondered if he thought the victim card might work in his favor.
Whoever gets ready for a passport shoot? I have never seen anything as ridiculous, but they never fail to amuse me.
Who knows if anything has ever gone down between Tom and Ariana? I have seen them work together on countless occasions without incident. I hoped that it would be the same at SUR. Apparently not so. . .This is a situation that gathers momentum and takes many turns so keep watching.
Love to you all till next week. . .
