Welcome to Miami! Maybe it's just the way I was raised, but if I accept an invitation to a celebration, I'm going with one agenda: to celebrate and honor the person or people whose happy occasion it is. Period. So while Carole was packing for her spy mission, Ramona was readying to clear the air with Luann, and Bethenny was plotting her next take-down, I was going shoe shopping! FYI, never found the aquasocks haha!
First stop, a visit to the parentals! Now that you have met my mom and dad, you know why I am obsessed with them. Two of the kindest souls you ever met, together in love for 36 years! Being raised in an unconditionally loving environment has given me the grounding and strength to get through anything...even the heartbreak of divorce. My heart breaks all over again watching the show now and listening to Jagger crying on the phone. I tried to brush it off in front of my parents, because I didn't want them to be concerned, especially with my dad having just recently returned home from the hospital, but I broke down the minute I was alone. Protecting my kids is the single most important thing in my life.
Next stop, the "Ship of Fools" (thanks again for that Bethenny). It was great to see Luann literally glowing with happiness. Every woman deserves to feel that way, and the yacht was incredible. Carole "genuinely happy for her"? I have to call bulls--- on that one, but that's just my opinion. Kudos to Sonja for her grace under pressure. I'm not sure how many other women I know would act so selflessly and with such class in the same situation.
I'm happy to not be part of the Tom love triangle. Just the usual trying to make the best of our girls trip. TRUST me when I say I tried! Even I am on the edge of my seat waiting to see the next few episodes! Stay tuned...
