This week we pick up at our dinner in Ojai. Things started to get heated after the STFU comment. I have been known to drop the f-bomb myself so that isn’t what surprised me. It just came out of left field. I thought we were all just having fun and talking. There were so many different conversations going on, I couldn’t hear what Kim and Brandi were talking about. Obviously there is tension between Brandi and Adrienne and there was more to it than just what we saw. That will be addressed.
When Brandi announced her book deal, I knew what Taylor was thinking. THAT had been their biggest argument at the reunion. Taylor was hurt after the comments Brandi made.
People can think what they want but Taylor is the ONLY parent to Kennedy and has to do what she can to support her. And as far as women supporting each other, Brandi wasn’t supportive of Taylor’s or my book, so it was kind of hard to be supportive of hers. So, those are the thoughts that were going through my mind at the table. However, we were all in a different place back then and still were IN Ojai. Brandi and I were still working out the kinks in our relationship. Today it would be a different story.
I liked watching Kim and Brandi having that conversation. I am happy they ended up sitting across from each other and were able to work through their issues with with another.
The rest of the trip was all fun! I really did have the best time. We all laughed so much that weekend. The golf cart ride (that scared me to death), the sauna room, and, of course, our late night acrobatics!
I was happy to see that Kim was able to have fun but also made the decision to go upstairs when she did. After that the rest of us all went upstairs and really let our hair down. To say the least. We were all having so much fun. It really was a great bonding moment. Everyone put their differences aside and were just letting loose. All of us were like a bunch of kids. I laughed so hard that night my stomach hurt. It was the most fun this group had in a long time. Seeing Taylor and Brandi laughing together and Lisa and Adrienne doing cartwheels and hand stands in the same room? Fantastic!
Kim planned a great weekend that we will never forget.
If only we could all have that much fun all the time. Next week, things take a drastic turn. . .Until then. . .
Since Kyle’s BravoBlog is so short and mentions Shana… Shana’s BravoBlog is included here:
Kim planned such a lovely getaway for the girls and it made me sad to see her upset during the first dinner outing for the group. Last year when Brandi incorrectly accused her of doing crystal meth, it really hurt Kim and her family deeply. It was a big step for Kim to leave her comfort zone and go away with us and I didn’t want her to shed a single tear. Perhaps this will be a turning point for their relationship having had the chance to discuss the past. I am not sure if Adrienne announcing to the group that Kim was crying was her way of alerting everyone that Kim may need protecting again or if it was more about her issues with Brandi. Either way, it set off as Lisa called it “shut the f— up gate.” There is some serious underlying tension between Adrienne and Brandi and we haven’t seen the last of that.
As for tension, I am still holding a great deal of resentment for Brandi’s comments in the reunion last year regarding my writing a book. She did not know my family nor was she around through the previous years as the other ladies were. Therefore, I didn’t think it was her place to pass judgment. Her announcing her book deal only brought up the memory of her comments to me and opened a wound I was hoping we could close this year. I want success for all the people in my life and I wish her the same with her book.
Going through the last year, I have had a myriad of emotions. I have experienced feelings I would have never expected possible. Anger was one of those emotions. I found myself angry and easily agitated. I wasn’t angry with anyone or anything in particular. This emotion was the most difficult to deal with of all I experienced because it made me feel like a completely different person and I was terribly unhappy. Watching moments where I see that in myself makes me sad and regretful. NOTE: Shut up, Shana.
On a lighter note. . .my favorite moments with the ladies are always when we are having fun, laughing, and enjoying one another. Watching us racing across the golf course in golf carts brought a smile to my face. This was the first day I saw a glimpse of a fun side to Yolanda and that was a pleasant surprise.
Watching the girls play badminton was so fun. This is not a sport we play in Beverly Hills . . .clearly. Mud slinging at the spa and then. . .Drunk-nastics! Anything more I need to say???
Lets just leave it at that. We all needed that kind of fun. Love my gal pals.
Lets keep enjoying this life because trust me. . .it’s too short.
Kisses for now from the BH.
