Over the weekend, I succumbed to a nasty summer cold. Of course, no one ever wants to be sick but when you are the world just seems to stop even when it is gorgeous outside. First of all, I want to mention this was only a cold so in the scope of being ill it is minor. To those of who are really suffering you have my utmost sympathy, hugs and love. My dad always said, "If you have your health, you have everything." Wise words indeed. Cherish your body and maintain your health. Also, don't touch anything. Keep your hands washed and do not touch your face.
Anyway, while laying on the couch bundled up, I turned on The Housewives of Beverly Hills, Season 9, Bravo. I haven't watched in several years but was quickly entranced between my coughing and sneezing. The stories were similar to previous years with feisty drama, opulent lifestyles and several new cast members. This season is mainly about the Lucy Goosey Apple Juicy adoption dog saga between Dorit and Lisa Vanderpump (LVP). A nasty story about the two of them over the dog was released on Radar Online though no one knows officially who leaked the story. All eyes on deck pointed to the infamous LVP yet the proof is in the pudding. Of course, there always needs to be a catalyst to bring the real issues of this zany group of women's challenges to the forefront. To make matters more decadent there is a vicious fight between Kyle and Lisa V, hurtful words between Dorit and Lisa V, two beautiful marriage ceremonies for Denise and Camille and their new spouses, Erika concert, Boy George concert, trips including the latest rage Glamping, Hawaii, Bahamas, workout sessions and other stories with Lisa R and Teddy weaved throughout. Hats off to the husbands on the show who sit back and try to make sense of all women's drama. Men just don't act this way so it is laughable to watch their reactions. All and all, great fun and entertainment. And, perhaps a bit of therapy since women have always fought with one another since the beginning of time. It is how you resolve issues that truly matter! You can't help yourself and smile a bit as you watch plus laugh at their antics. Do you throw away a long term relationship over a dog story? Or is something much deeper bothering you? Can you look at yourself and realize your own culpability? If you want to be liked, admired, loved, respected and revered, one never blames others, and has the wherewithal to examine their own faults and knows how to apologize. It takes two to tango. Of course, sometimes, it is time to move on from friendships but most often not.
Many women do not want to face their own responsibility in creating drama. They want to blame others because it is an easier and a less painful path. Having to examine your own words and actions is much harder. And, yet if you do, your relationships will be stronger and better. One can only hope that all of these ladies really enjoy each other off the set. I believe they do. It is television after all and nothing more.
I digressed, back to fashion, please.
Okay, all the HWBH fashionistas, wear classic cotton white tee-shirts with absolutely everything. A simple tee shirt combined with jeans and a sweater thrown over the shoulders is elegant and perfection. Or add a jacket over it for a more sophisticated look. Another one of my favorite, tee shirt brands is Rag & Bone. Remember you want to purchase quality cotton tee shirts that have lasting power. You do not want to have to throw them out after a year. Rag & Bone fits the bill. They are also cut slim and can be easily tucked in. Fit is true to size.
