Some People Collect Things, I Collect People.
Like my friends or not, you can't say they're not entertaining. I don't judge people as much by their behavior as I do by their heart. And sometimes you have to get to know people before you know their good heart. And sometimes you have to get to know people before you realize their true heart, and sometimes it's not what you expected, and sometimes its not so good.
I find that when it comes to people, I either like them more the more I get to know them or less the more I get to know them. I have found this to be very true on this Housewife journey. I think as it plays out over the next few episodes, you will be surprised to see how all the relationships play out.
As for me, even though I heard numerous things being said about me by people that don't know me and don't care to get to know me, I tried overlooking most of it. I think it's fair to say, if I think someone has a good heart, I am pretty forgiving in regard to their speaking before thinking. Or speaking out of ignorance, or speaking to try to be relevant. It's when their meanness is calculated and bitter that I don't forgive or not forgive, I just ignore and don't engage.Tonight's episode exceeded any craziness even I could have imagined at a South Beach party, and I've been to a lot of Miami parties throughout the years. Keep watching, as it only gets more intense from here. We are at a time in the season where people have formed opinions and alignments, and we have passed the "nice to meet you, let's be socially correct" phase of our time together.
To sum this week's episode up:
Lisa - a party's success is determined by if it's memorable!
Adriana - the Sharon Stone moment of uncrossing her legs has been replaced by the "bitch slap heard around the Housewife world." (A quote from POP)
Joanna - don't expect her to turn the other cheek.
Karent - she may be polarizing, but seems to do it with grace, style, and a Colgate smile.
Romain - always the gentleman.Lenny - always have your parties on Saturday so you can confirm everything is done on Saturday morning instead of after work on Friday. It will be less stressful! And thanks for moving it to Friday to accommodate the Blacks Annual Gala.
Alexia - you didn't miss a thing. Ha.
Marta - the truth sets you free, ha ha!
Joe - it's never a dull moment -- and he does have a heart of gold.
James - good looking man, pretty lady, thanks, Lisa, for inviting him. What would a party be like without a pool splash?
One last thing, Lisa, your biggest drama of the night wasn't the music! Hello?
Things to think about this week:
Make it a goal in life to be invited to a near-nude Miami party at a mansion hosted by a boob god and his greatest creation.
And can you believe Lady Gaga was tweeting about RHOM?
