This was a fun episode to watch and brought back some great memories. It was fun to plan Dolores' birthday party with Siggy. I really liked meeting her. We totally clicked, which was great. I love Dolores so much and was happy to help throw a great party for her. We wanted to show her how much she means to us. It was great to see her with her beautiful family on the show, too. I love her kids. She's a fantastic mom and I was happy things started to turn around for her.
Of course, I lovvvvved the party's leopard theme. As you know, I love, love, love leopard! I have everything from leopard print slippers to leopard print sheets and pajamas. Leopard is timeless…especially in Jersey!
If I'm being honest here, I was shocked when Jacqueline came to my house to see me. I had no idea she was coming. It was totally unexpected. But I'm glad she came. We had a really nice talk. It was great to catch up. After sitting there drinking coffee with her at my kitchen table and listening to what she had to say, I felt hopeful about us rebuilding our friendship. New beginnings, you know? It felt good to start fresh. I don’t want issues with anyone. That’s not the way I want things to be.
I had a really good time with Jacqueline at Dolores's party, too. It felt like we were building our friendship again and that we were getting where we wanted to be. We laughed a lot and joked about how we always used to call ourselves Lucy and Ethel. It felt good.
It was also fun to hang out with everyone again, too. Just the girls. I was glad I was able to make them laugh with my stories…but I think I shocked Melissa Gorga a little bit! I had a great time with Melissa at the party…that drive home, though, was something else!
One of my favorite moments from the show was watching Joe doing Melania's hair (or trying to!). He did such a great job taking care of the girls while I was gone. I love him for that. But it was good to be back home with my daughters again, doing everything for them, like I always did. Everything felt like it was right back to normal again, thank God.
So things were really good on this episode…but stay tuned…as Melissa said, things are changin' in Jersey!
I love, love, love, love you all!
