It felt like we were in a tidal wave with multiple waves of raw emotion, crashing on each other. Andy begins with Shannon being so reactive. Love it! The funny part is when Shannon says, “I’m old school, and I have manners, and those manners flew out the flippin’ door, this year.” Well, that explains all that I experienced with her. If “manners out the flippin’ door” is her explanation of why she “reacted” that way with everyone, then I must accept it. Looking back and based on what Tamra said about Shannon’s denial about her marriage, it could make sense, but the jury’s out.
Seriously though, I cannot imagine the pain of divorce!
On to happy news — Meghan's having another baby! Congrats and well wishes for a healthy new addition to your family! The “Twitter wars’’ between Meghan and Kelly seemed to be something I missed, especially since they were deliberating infidelity!
At least the air was cleared. And I accepted Kelly’s sincere apology about my father, which, I apparently should have kept in context. I know I’d told her about his passing, but my emotions prevented me from thinking clearly. I accepted her apology because she was so sincere. I don’t think Kelly can be anything other than sincere because she is so emotive. Her demonstrative behavior exposes her true nature, and what you see is what you get. I guess that is why Vicki likes her.
Speaking of friendship, I appreciate both Lydia and Vicki for their support during taping, and tonight, while I was discussing my turbulent season, they were willing to speak words of encouragement for me!
And in terms of friendships and tidal waves, could you believe the beautiful trio of women mending old relationships? Tears flowing and emotions gushing while apologies were swirling all around, with Tamra and Vicki apologizing to each other promising not to be unkind and hugging. Oh too sweet — I think we were all smiling and tearing up. But Vicki extending her hand to Shannon was beautiful. Wow, wow, wow! Never would I have thought that I would see Vicki sitting near Shannon and holding her hand! That in and of itself was miraculous. Andy surmised that when Tamra asked Vicki to change couches, it the sweetest thing she’d said!
I hadn’t witnessed their friendship, but in Iceland, I had a glimpse of it, and it seemed genuine. My hope is that it will eventually mend, and they can overcome the hurdles of there past and reconcile.
It was an overwhelming journey which concluded with an emotional reunion. I guess we can all go home to gear up for the holiday season. This little break will give each of us time to recharge — who knows what 2018 has in store for us!
