May 17 is Luann de Lesseps’ birthday.
Luann is my favorite housewife on any of the Bravo “Housewives” shows. She is the sort of person I would probably be friends with in real life. We are the same age, and we would have been in the same grade in school if we grew up together. That is one of the reasons that she reminds me of a few of my Taurus friends who have been sort of glorious disasters throughout their own lives. They are more fun to be around than anyone else, and despite their problems, they have hearts of gold.
Sometimes that can get them into trouble, though. Luann defended Tom despite the fact that the writing was on the wall regarding his philandering nature. Teresa defended Joe and his shady business practices. Kandi defends Mama Joyce’s indefensible behavior. Kim defends everything . . .
It’s funny that Cancer natives are often described as the most defensive sign of the zodiac. That might be true on a personal level because they will defend themselves. However, Taurus natives will defend whoever will defend them, and it gets them into trouble. Maybe that’s why I like them. They make the most loyal friends. I have Taurus friends that I haven’t seen in years, and I would still put my trust in them over most of my other friends if I needed their help tomorrow.
Of course, I’m a Capricorn and my affinity with Taurus individuals is written in the stars. Nevertheless, I’m sure a lot of people out there have had similar experiences with their Taurus friends, right?
