We’re back in Hong Kong! At least there’s shopping.
Hey, therapy is therapy, retail or otherwise. No, bags and shoes and bracelets cannot solve conflicts. But they can take the edge off. And that’s exactly what we needed. Maybe we all should have gotten some of Eden’s rose quartz after that dinner.
After shopping, we went to see the SPCA rescues from the Yulin trucks. I never met a rescue dog I didn’t want to adopt. That Shar-Pei and I bonded, and if I could have taken him back with me in my purse, I would have. And that’s exactly what I tried to do, through proper channels of course. I was all set to take him, but I found out he has a short snout, and the flight would have killed him! Much better to let someone local adopt him.
The only thing that made me feel better leaving the dogs was that they were the lucky ones who were rescued from torture. Getting to play with the doggies was good therapy too. I think our souls needed to be around those adorable creatures and gain a bit of perspective. It was a great way to end the trip.
Finally home, jet lagged and groggy, I met Kyle and Erika for lunch. I knew Erika and I were going to be okay. Like I said, I feel like we get each other. I’m glad we can put that all behind us and get focused on more important things: Erika’s Y&R debut! Showing my friends the set is one thing, but actually having a friend come and shoot scenes? A wonderful experience. Especially when I saw Erika in my old dressing room! That place has so many memories for me, and now they do for her too.
Wasn’t that scene hilarious? The best part? Erika was terrific! Congrats on her first, but certainly not last, time on Young and the Restless!
Kyle wrapped her last day of shooting on her series. That must be such a relief after all that hard work. Loved that Mauricio showed up on set to support her. It’s really hard when both spouses are working and traveling with kids. I know from first-hand experience how complicated it can get. But Kyle and Mo seem to be making it work.
After everything that went on in Hong Kong, is it really a smart move for PK and Dorit to come back and insult Erika and Tom’s marriage? They don’t know anything about their relationship! And who are they to judge, anyhow?
This party is sure going to be interesting. It’s a rosé tasting, so at least I know there will be wine. Looks like we’re gonna need it!
