I believe consistency is the spice of life.

 

I believe you’re never too old to have a BFF.

 

I believe in the healing power of love.

 

I believe in the healing power of Zoloft. And candy (especially if that candy is Hot Tamales because, yum).

 

I believe it’s important to own a great hat.

 

I believe in a sixth sense (I also loved that movie).

I believe if you buy a cup of coffee for $1.99 and you hand the cashier two bucks, life is too short to wait for your penny in change.

I believe that black jelly beans are the best.

 

I believe that having sex three times a week is a lofty goal.

 

I believe in the power of a great memoir.

 

I believe everyone should learn to speak Spanish. And I intend to get on that.

 

I believe that bowling should be demoted from a sport to a drinking game. Same with darts. And billiards.

I believe a lot of people only pretend to love David Sedaris.

 

I believe that children are our future…oh wait…no, that’s Whitney Houston.

 

I believe the solution to a big butt is a good pair of black pants.

I believe you can never own too much lip gloss.

 

I believe there is no problem that cannot be solved with good sushi.

I believe that no good can come from a tongue piercing.

 

I believe that Airborne is a waste of thirteen dollars.

 

I believe I was given a child with some “challenges” for a reason.

I believe in starting every day being grateful.

 

And finally, I believe that if you don’t love the Housewives series, we will probably never be friends.
