This week is a difficult episode. I think one of the hardest parts of doing a show like this is having to relive difficult times.
Mauricio and I were excited to go back to Puerto Rico after having spent our anniversary there last year. It is such a beautiful place and the people are so kind and welcoming. Joyce was also happy to share her "home" with everyone and the trip perhaps brought her comfort after losing her father.
Our first day there started out promising and then took a turn for the worse.
I saw Lisa and Yolanda talking and then Brandi so I went to see what was going on. I wish I hadn't gone over at all. In spite of their conversation, I believe that both Yolanda and Brandi do care about Lisa and their friendship with her. Lisa and I have obviously had our problems and both of us have felt hurt by each other at some point. However, we had been slowly trying to repair our friendship. When Brandi told me that Lisa had put the tabloids with the lies about my husband in her suitcase and told her to bring them to Palm Springs, it stung. A lot.
After the Reunion last year, Mauricio and I were both hurt and didn't see or spoke with Lisa for months. After a rough start, this season things started to get better. When Lisa and I had Mauricio and Ken's birthday party we had started to speak more often and would always be laughing like we used to.
