Wow!!! As you can see by watching this episode things have changed. I planned a breakfast with Nene, Cori, and Sheree so we can catch up and spend time together. Nene, Cori, and I were at the Intercontinental when I found out Sheree was so sick. I felt terrible for her -- she doesn't have a husband that can take care of her so I figured I would bring her some medicine. It was great to see her. I couldn't believe how sick she was and how GREAT she looked.
Sheree and I met through NeNe a couple years ago and we are just now beginning to get to know each other. I really like Sheree. We are both divorced and our children are close in age, as well as we are both chasing our dreams. The more time I spend with her the more I like her.
Since Sheree couldn't attend the breakfast I planned a spa day at Kai Spa. I invited Sheree, NeNe, and my BFF Cori. I love the spa. I love to take care of my skin. ALTHOUGH all the blogging going on states "I can't possibly be 29" I am actually 30 years old now. I have to say I agree with some footage I have seen that my makeup was PILED on that face of mine and I look like a drag queen (it ages you). I am not a BIG MAKEUP BUFF usually, but for photo shoots and big events you do what you have to do. "LESS IS MORE" is my new motto.
Anyway back to what I was saying: NeNe texts me two hours before our appointment at the spa and tells me she is NOT coming. I was quite upset. Grace the owner of Kai Spa had closed down the spa for the day, had food catered in, and it was supposed to be a fun day with all the girls.
I had dinner with Sheree the night before at Ippilito's and had heard through the "grapevine" that NeNe was mad I had dinner with her, so I assumed that was why she was not coming. I was caught in the middle yet again. I naturally got defensive. I was really hurt. I couldn't understand why she would do that after I had been so loyal to her. I thought NeNe and Sheree had things worked out and it wouldn't be a problem to invite them both to the spa. I wasn't doing that to make NeNe uncomfortable. I also told Sheree that NeNe would be there and Sheree was OK with it. DeShawn's Diamond Gala. WOW!!!!! From the beginning I thought she should have "sold" tickets to the gala that way you are guaranteed to weed out the takers, but DeShawn has a big heart and assumed everyone would contribute to her foundation. I tried to help her out with buying the diamond bracelet that I absolutely loved. I was not shocked it turned out the way it did and she didn't raise any money, but my heart hurt for her. She tried so hard. She spent thousands of dollars of her own money and many hours coordinating this event.
Lisa ... I love her jewelry. She is such a go-getter and her hubby is her biggest fan. I think its great. I still don't know if she sleeps or where she gets her energy from -- I am so jealous. Until next time ...
