Something Deep

Something deep and profound hit me as I was watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion show Part 2 last night! By far the BEST city so far to have a Real Housewives recorded there, but that's a story for a different day!

Anyway, if you watch, you know that Kyle and Kim are sisters, their other sister happens to be Kathy Hilton (Paris Hilton's mom), but that's a story for a different day too! Kyle and Kim have a ROCKY relationship, but the love that they have for one another is so deep. It reminds me much of my own relationship with my sister! I think the reason that Kyle and Kim, along with Katie and I, have such a difficult time maintaining this picture perfect relationship is because we are so real with one another. Kyle calls Kim out and vice versa, and I know for for a fact that I have said NUMEROUS things to Katie that I would never say to anyone else. I think this happens for two reasons:

(1) With a sister, you are put in positions to discuss things that you might not have to with other people. I know I have hurt her by wanting to do things without her occasionally. With a friend, they don't know what you are doing virtually every second of the day, my sister and I text about 500 times a week. No one else knows where I am or what I am doing all the time. No one else really cares. So, for this very reason, I think it is hard on the sister.

(2) I know she will love me no matter what. I am BRUTALLY honest with her! BRUTALLY. If I don't like something that someone else does, I just discuss it with Pat and either remove myself from the situation or ignore it. With Katie, the sh** just spews from my mouth. It is like I am taken over by some greater being and the looks of disgust and eye rolling come forth. Again, we spend massive amounts of time together, and I think anyone who spends that much time together will have their issues (See: Pat and I after one or the other being sick for five weeks=divorce court!). I need to be more patient with her and realize that she keeps all my deepest. darkest secrets!

Anyway, my point of this rant is that I do learn things from Reality Television, and I am going to work on not making Katie my whipping girl!

But only if she gets her butt up from the couch every once in awhile!
