This episode was both really fun and really hard for me. It was interesting to hear that Lisa and Kyle were throwing a joint birthday for Ken and Mauricio as they had previously had so much tension. But I'm all for everyone trying to get along.
I didn't understand the team discussion that Lisa and Kyle had about deciding who to invite for the birthday. I was actually surprised when Lisa seemed shocked that she wasn't invited to Yolanda's step daughter's wedding, as I know that she wasn't even invited to Yolanda and David's wedding because she is actually Mohammed's close friend.
My book cover photo shoot was stressful because my hand was throbbing, and I was meeting my editor Nancy Hancock for the first time in person. She and I had talked on the phone and exchanged many many emails, but had never actually come face to face. She is one tough cookie when it came to deadlines and content.
This second book was a lot more work than my first book, and I think I got an ulcer trying to make all the deadlines. After watching this back I can see that Nancy was 100 percent right in what she was saying. I absolutely adore Nancy and the whole team at Harper Collins and feel very blessed to be in such great hands. What I don't feel great about is how blonde I colored my hair the night before the shoot. As the old saying goes, never make major changes before any big day. I wish I had followed that saying. . .
