I’d like to start off by giving my most heartfelt thanks to everyone that sent me a message of love and condolence. Your kind words truly helped my family and me during this difficult time of my dad transitioning from our Dad and Nampa to guardian angel. I was and still continue to be humbled by all of the love you have shown us during this time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I’m also quite grateful and appreciative to Erika for inviting me over to her insanely gorgeous house, so she could offer her insight and advice about how I should approach Yolanda. But let’s just take a moment to address the fact that I said Erika’s home makes LVP’s Villa Rosa look like a disco. I love a good disco.
But let’s get back to the topic at hand…I am quite thankful Erika was able to reassure me that Yolanda would appreciate me being honest with her since the two of them are so close. Hearing that from Erika spoke volumes. As we saw on tonight’s episode, Erika had the opportunity to take a walk with Yolanda and fill her in on what happened after she left Kyle’s “BBQ.” Erika caught her up on the dynamic between Kathryn and Faye, as well as the part of the evening when Kyle asked LVP about Yolanda’s children and their Lyme diagnosis. Yolanda also let Erika know that I had called her and asked to sit down to speak with her. What a relief it was when Yolanda agreed to meet with me, since I had called her weeks before this asking to take her to lunch at that time so I could address the conversations I was a part of. She told me that she did not want to talk to me before her explant surgery, and I could understand and respect that. So, keep in mind, quite a bit of time had passed before she agreed to speak with me.
As you all know, honesty is very important to me, so being able to sit down with Yolanda in her home and speak candidly with her about all of the questions and chatter surrounding her health was a good thing for both of us. We were able to discuss her deep desire to bring awareness to Lyme Disease, and I was also able to address how in the process of raising awareness, many questions fueled from confusion will also, inevitably, rise to the surface. I know Yolanda already knows this to be true as she said herself--even her own family and friends have raised questions. Overall, this was a good conversation, and I am happy to move forward.
Now it’s time to celebrate Lisa and Ken’s 33 years and Kyle and Mauricio’s 20 years of wedded bliss by dressing like expensive hookers. Count me in! There are two things I can’t pass up:
1. A piece of cake.
2. An opportunity to dress like a hooker with a fake hair piece in a swanky hotel with my friends.
Everyone looked so gorgeous, and despite the drama that lingered in the air, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Kyle do the splits. I don’t know anyone that can ‘hit a split’ (thanks for that phrase, Erika!) quite like Kyle, and it actually brings me great joy every time I see her do it. Shoot, if it brings ME great joy, I can only imagine the elation it must bring Mauricio! No wonder those two are so happily married!
Next week looks like it will be a doozy with some inaccurate information being spread that will inevitably cause some collateral damage. Oh boy.
