Talk about a bomb! I wasn¹t quite prepared to hear Charrisse reveal that she is ready to divorce Eddie. I knew that she was struggling with her marriage but in now way thought that she was ready to wave the white flag! Divorce always saddens me, no matter who it is, but I really hate to see my dear friend going through this. It¹s not easy at all to come to that decision, so Charrisse must have really been hurting for a long time to get to that point. I am happy though that she felt comfortable enough to make that revelation to me at that time and I hope that Charrisse continues to know that I will always be there for her!

The more I talk about my relationship with Juan, the more I realize that it really is not that easy to explain. I like to say that ³we function as a family,² but I know that still does not explain the relationship between just the two of us. Husband, boyfriend, partner, friend, baby daddyŠnone of those truly fit! I think I want to create another title. How about ³person who I¹ve known for a really long time and have two beautiful kids with and just can¹t let go of?² Yeah, that works!

Oh no, if Gizelle¹s date is any indication of what the dating world is like, then please, no thank you, do not sign me up! Mr. Herman crossed all types of boundaries and was just flat out awkward. I definitely don¹t foresee Gizelle and Herman becoming an item. Sorry, there will be no Herzelle or Gizman super couple on the way! It was quite comical though.

³Wait, stop, no, don¹t!² That was my first reaction seeing Michael pulling his pants down on the boat. But looking closer, I quickly realized that Michael had swimming trunks on and wasn¹t actually about to go skinny dipping in the Chesapeake Bay. I can see why everyone was initially shocked and appalled but it was clear that Michael may have had one too many drinks and wanted to celebrate! I think Michael¹s fun Aussie spirit was a little too much for the ladies and totally taken the wrong way. It¹s clear that Ashley and Michael like to have fun and may push the envelope at times (humping at first sight, anyone), but they really mean no harm and just want to have fun. But, darn, I was really hoping to see Michael jump off the boat! Next time Michael, next time.
