Silence Isn’t Golden

 

My friend Cassie and I were having a candid discussion about how one handle’s issues in relationships. She told me how she would never bring things up and she would let them fester until she couldn’t take it anymore. I’ve learned that nobody wins in a relationship when both of you stay quiet. Glossing over issues or sweeping them under the rug doesn’t help.                                                                                                              

Of course, relationships and friendships seem like they should be easy to navigate. But unfortunately, they aren’t. I’m a big believer in trusting my intuition and I try to ignore it when it is related to people I care about. I don’t like confronting people I care about when I feel that something is off or that my fears are getting the best of me. For example, a guy I used to go out with was super romantic in the beginning and three months later, he slowly started toning it down to where it was non-existent. We would facetime and talk on the phone (texting seemed less personal) and he slowly stopped that too. I had a weird feeling about things. I didn’t speak up. My fears were getting the best of me. Turns out he was actually dating some other girl for whom he was driving 3 hours to see. He would get annoyed having to drive from the Woodlands to Bellaire. As if that was 3 hours. I confronted him about it when I saw receipts for different places he had gone with her. Mind you, I was being an independent woman and paying at least 95 % of the meals we would eat together and movies, etc. I liked him and even though I hardly made as much as him, I was like blasé about it. He told me that he never said we were exclusive. Which is true, he never did. But he could have at least told me that he planned to see other people and keep it casual. Which I don’t think I would have agreed with. Plus I felt if I was silent, I wouldn’t be considered a bitch for speaking up.                 

In my current relationship, things are completely different.  Which is great. I prefer dating a guy that could be a forever. I ask where he was all my life because he’s that wonderful. However, even what feels like paradise can bring up old fears. The more I overthink, the more I feel like I’m getting sick. I have trouble sleeping.  I have always been able to tell Mr. Jettsetter anything without fear of being judged. He’s my comforter, my assurance that I am always safe in his arms, that I have nothing to fear with them because the world just stops and it’s just us. Anyways, remember how we separated and seemed in limbo for a few months. All of that happened because we didn’t have a conversation about fears, issues, feelings. Moral of life, silence isn’t golden. What do you think?

 

 

Until next time,

 

P.S. I know I was vague and it was on purpose. There are some things that I prefer to keep private.

VPR – Thirsty Girls

This episode of Vanderpump Rules  should really be called “Lying and Cheating.”

Key moments with my commentary:

  • Ariana claims that her brother moving in with her and Sandoval is affecting their sex life. (Ya think?)
  • Lala joins them for lunch to discuss James’ living situation (he sleeps in a living room) and his 21 year old pageant girlfriend. (I don’t know what Lala, Kristen, Gigi, Pageant girl see in him. He must be such a prize!)
  • At Sur, Lala later tries to have a convo with Scheana and she’s not having it. She’s “uncomfortable” with having more than a hello at work since Tequila Katie is one of her best friends
  • Queen Stassi, Kristen and Tequila Katie are day drinking when Scheana texts Kristen to let her know she shut down Lala. (She wants to be part of the Chanel Clique.)                                                                                                                                                               clapbackstassi
  • Schwartz is seeing a therapist about commitment issues (While it is a good thing to get therapy, did he let Tequila Katie know?)
  • Turns out Tequila Katie doesn’t know! I smell drama! (You are about to marry her and can’t be honest about this? Check yourself before you wreck yourself!)
  • Jax complains that Brittany won’t make him a sandwich and that he does all the cleaning and paying bills! She owes him for the boob job. (Brittany’s confessional had me rotfl because her dress kept unzipping. Maybe get a bigger dress?)
  • Queen Stassi and Tequila Katie hang out with Kristen after her veneer surgery. Scheana shows up and they tell her that she is not a good friend.
  • James is a drunken mess at work and starts problems. Jax adds fuel to that fire by spreading rumors that James cheated. Lisa just gives him a slap on his wrist. (Lisa, just fire him!)                                                                                                                           fight
  • Schwartz decides to ask Ariana to be a groomsman and she has to eat butt steak like Jax and Sandoval. (Another shady thing behind Tequila Katie’s back! It’s not like Tequila Katie told him not to invite Ariana, wait she did! I see how lots of lie and omitting stuff in that marriage. #NotRelationshipGoals )
  • James tells Sandoval that his job is safe because he’s got it good with Lisa. The next day after his angry screaming towards Lisa and Ken (Ken was not having it and told him off! Go Ken!), he meets with Lisa and she tells him bitch bye he’s fired! (I didn’t think production Lisa was going to fire him.)                                        lisafire

RHOA – Ghosts of Boyfriends Past

This episode of  RHOA (Real Housewives of Atlanta)  was full of shade and drama!

Key moments with my commentary: 

  • Phe Phe, Porsha, and Shade by Sheree discuss Kenya and Sheree’s “fight”. Which includes throwing shade left and right.

My fave quotes:

  • “We came through serving camel toe!” – Phe Phe
  • “Thick cut bacon for some thick ass sisters…” – Phe Phe
  • ““A little dick is good! That’s what a little dick will do!” – Phe Phe
  • “Everyone knows Kenya slept her way to the top of the Z list dvd rack!” – Shady Sheree
  • “I ain’t never been associated with no hoes!” – Shady Sheree
  • “It’s not chateau Thelma, it’s in a trust” – Shady Sheree
  • “In a trust, can be in your momma name! She probably used your name while you grew up! Electric bill at 5 years old! “ – Clueless Porsha
  • “Maybe she’s a ground hog and sleeps in a hazmat suit!” – Phe Phe
    porsha-and-phe-phe
  • Krayonce Kenya and Matt workout at the park (Couple that work out together, stays together?) Or she’s so vain that she has to show her thotness fitness
  • Matt introduces Krayonce Kenya to his family. She’s concerned because she is 16 years older than Matt.
  • Meanwhile at the Kandi Factory, Kandi throws shade at the ladies for having openings without the finished product, Ie Shady Sheree’s fashion show with out clothes to show and Krayonce’s Kenya’s open American horror story house soft opening.
  • Kandi is having baby daddy issues with Riley’s dad Block. (What kind of name is Block? Obvious name for someone who doesn’t pay child support or make time to see his kid!)
  • Kandi needs some security at the Kandi Factory because homegirl Kris Kelly, Block’s gf decided to try to get her 5 minutes of fame talk to Kandi about Block and Riley’s father daughter relationship.
  • Kandi hates the word “baby daddy” and doesn’t want to call Block her baby daddy drama to stay on the show
  • Cynthia needs to love herself…Stop trying to get back with Papa smurf Peter, if he loved you, he would have tried harder.                                                                                                                                   cynthia
  • Porsha wants to be a mom so she reconnected with ex Chris, plans to ask him to be a sperm donor. (Girlfriend is going to need a nanny! I rather have adventures of Phe Phe and Porsha “Prowl in the City” or “Thotlandia”)
  • Like a bestie, Phaedra thinks it’s a bad idea
  • So what does Porsha do? The opposite! She meets up with Chris and lets him know that she wants his sperm… Unfortunately for her, he turns her down.
  • Shady Sheree can get a way hotter man than Bob. One that dresses up for a date and takes her to a nice place. Love yourself girl!
  • Matt and Kenya drive to Cincy, OH for the family reunion and Kenya is not having this road trip…she just wines and pouts, she hates road trips!
  • Matt’s sister is over Kenya before she fully gets to know her. Biggest concern is the age difference. (Really? They are both consenting adults!)
  • Matt’s mom is also over Kenya. (Guess these will be in-law hell!)
  • Kandi and Sheree color coordinate to the gym. (Both wear yellow.)
  • Kandi has a breakdown and needs a friend. Sheree is like well Bob….(Talk about being a good friend!)                                                                                                                                                                  kandi-tears
  • We also learn that Porsha used to date Block! (Gross!)
