I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday filled with family, friends, and lots of love. Now on to a happy and healthy 2015!
Watching Lisa Rinna and her girls really makes me laugh. Because I have teenage daughters myself, I can relate. As parents, we so badly want to share special moments with our children, not only to strengthen our bond with them, but in hopes they can learn valuable lessons from these moments. However, teenagers aren't always on the same page.
I was so emotional watching Lisa R. go back to her childhood home and help her parents pack up and leave. How difficult that must have been for all of them. My heart broke watching Lisa's mom Lois cry as she left behind the home she raised her children in. Seeing her father speak brought tears to my eyes. How difficult aging can be at times. I'm sure Lisa R. has comfort knowing that her parents have each other. One can only hope that at that age you would still have your life partner by your side.
We see Lisa V. and Ken return from Lisa getting her star in Palm Springs and debating wether or not they should go to Brandi's housewarming. I can understand their reservations after the drastic turn their friendship took.
Lisa V. and Ken discussed whether or not I had called to congratulate her on her star in Palm Springs. Considering I was never told about it nor invited, that didn't really make sense. Lisa said last week that she didn't invite or want any of us there. Yet we are supposed to know and congratulate her? I was actually in Spain during this time and didn't return until the night before Brooke's wedding. Moments like this are frustrating and hurtful, because Lisa V. and I are in a good place now. That's what is difficult about going back six months in time.
Later at my BBQ ....well, it was supposed to be a BBQ but quickly turned into a party when I realized I was too tired from the time change to cook for everyone. I also wanted to be able to talk and catch up with everyone without having to run around like a crazy person as I tend to do when I have people over. Eileen and Vince are great. It's fun having them around and funny that Kim and I go way back with Vince and his brothers. It's made for many stories and reminiscing.
I definitely do not know anything about wine. Yes, I did once use a $2,000 bottle of wine that was a gift to Mauricio from a client. I wish I would have known that when my friends and I were drinking it. I may have thought it tasted better.
My friend Michele always makes me laugh. She's the one who asked Brandi about her, as Eileen put it ..."newly renovated vagina." Thank you for that, Eileen. Too funny.
There was definite tension between Brandi and Lisa at my house. Flat out uncomfortable at times, no doubt. But this is just the beginning...
Knowing what I know now , I wish it was only awkward encounters we had to deal with .....
