As you might remember, I first heard from Adrienne at a Thanksgiving charity event in Burbank, CA. So, I was really happy to catch up with one of my favorite housewives in this exclusive Holiday interview with Vanity Girl Hollywood.
Adrienne, what are you doing for Christmas?
Christmas is such a special time for me because I get to see the magic of the holiday through the eyes of my children. It’s very important to me that they remember first and foremost why we are celebrating, and that they get as much joy out of giving to others as they do from receiving. I especially love Christmas morning at home, because we are together as a family, and carrying on traditions that I am passing along to my boys.
Is this year more meaningful to you because of the loss of your uncle?
Anytime you lose someone special to you, the holidays will be more difficult to some degree. I think the key is to celebrate their life and honor the good times, while remembering that every minute spent together with family is something to be truly cherished.
Did all the in-fighting with your castmates make you value harmonious friendships more?
I think it made me realize even more so that compromise is an art form – one we can never stop working at mastering.
What are you doing for New Year’s Eve?
Heading to The Palms of course!
