Hello Bravo Viewers,

What a season! How beautiful is the Pierre Hotel? Mr. Spinner looks very elegant and handsome. I have known him for more than 15 years. He is very professional and gracious. He is one of the best in the business. Remember I am a restaurant, hotel, resort consultant? Good choice Ramona and Roberta!

Next stop is Le Cirque! I love Sirio Macioni and his sons. I have been a fan and guest for half my life at this restaurant! OK, enough of the mutual admiration club. I was actually having lunch that day with a group of 12 ladies. I saw both Bethenny and Jill walk in and said oh my! Fasten your seatbelts for this one.

I am very sad about Bethenny and Jill. I believe they are meant to be friends. They became friends on the show and they fell apart on the show. But it's like a divorce, and when the media and the show get involved it can be too hot to handle. I don't know if Jill and Bethenny will ever be friends again, but they definitely need some time apart to remember the good times again. The painful times are too vivid at the moment. I hope it works out.

I am so happy for LuAnn and her special man. He makes her so happy. I adore LuAnn's new song and the new video that Ultra Records put out recently. I posted it to my fan page: Ultra Records is a big time label and it shows. LuAnn looks very feminine and has long hair! The video has beautiful clothing and styling. I am so happy she lived her dream. It paid off, and she is having a ball.


LuAnn was sweet to stop and let me speak about Jill's entrance on scary island. Geeeez!!! I am so tiny next to her and sometimes it is hard to get a word in with these gals! But she understood. Thanks LuAnn. Like I said, money can't buy you real friends!

Ramona's renewal of vows was first class from beginning to end. I have cherished the Pierre for many years and can't think of a better place to have a celebration. She looked gorgeous and Mario and Avery were proud of her, as was I. I like the way Bethenny handled my pointing out the feathers on her dress when she represents PETA. Drama per usual, but it was an accident and she rolled with it. She is cool in my book.

Jill thought we were seated on teams at the renewal? I know Jill calls her fans the Jill team, so I am on THAT team, but as far as housewives being on teams? That is just silly. I am hoping to develop all our friendships as time goes on.

My favorite moment of the season? I guess I would have to say my art party benefiting Chateau Blerancourt Museo Franco American ( I was sick as a dog with the flu, but we had a great turnout and the food and wine from Cipriani was delicious. I really got into the Met singer, Jeffrey Mattsey! I feel good when things turn out well. My friends enjoyed themselves and we raised some money for charity and for the arts. I had a moment with the Housewives upstairs, but have found out when we are filming it does take attention away from the the main event. In the end, I am gracious that they came.

I learned this year that I am tough on myself and I know people will love me for who I am. Someone will always relate to my experiences and hopefully I can share with others in a helpful way.
