Coming home after a week in Paris with my niece feels like trying to swim to the surface in a pool of pea soup. Coming up is tedious and slow. I cannot see all that needs doing.   First there’s extreme fatigue. After walking miles and miles in 95-plus degree heat, this body cries out for recovery. The heat did not detract from the beauty of that gorgeous city, but it fatigued even the most enthusiastic traveler.   Sitting on the plane for eight hours from Charles de Gaulle Airport to Dulles was no hardship.

The Paris haute couture shows for fall and winter have ended.Doesn't it seem like just a few months ago that you saw those frivolous French frocks in the papers and magazines? No, those were the ready-to-wear showings, very different. Ready-to-wear clothes are actually manufactured and can be purchased by mortals who have enough confidence and cash -- say, the equivalent of two mortgage payments for a skimpy little sweater dress.Couture clothes are special, one of a kind.They are the theater of fashion and can only be had by women who can pay the high-ticket prices to be part of the play.

Great state occasions, like ocean liners, are slow to turn, difficult to move. And so the opening of the Channel Tunnel went ahead as planned, more than one year delayed, with Queen Elizabeth II of England and President Francois Mitterrand of France dining and transiting together, although there was nothing to open. More work needs doing. Scheduled use by inter-city trains, shuttle trains bearing trucks and others bearing passenger cars will be phased in from spring to autumn.Typical of engineering marvels, the Chunnel comes in a year late with cost overruns of 100 percent.

We're still in Paris, where Yolanda and Brandi are running through the streets backed by what sounds like Parisian dubstep. Brandi's on a mission to look as good as Yolanda does when she's her age, to which I say, "Yesssss, ma'mm!" Both of them spent their modeling years in Paris, and it's cute to hear them reminisce. Especially Yolanda, who was "milking cows and riding horses" a week before she first walked on the catwalk. Gag, Mauricio and Kyle are having a romantic walk down what Mauricio claims is "lover's bridge," and as you all well know, I'm not a fan of either of them, so this is making me ill. There's some superstition about writing your names on a lock and key and chaining the lock to the bridge, and throwing the key in the river so you can be together forever.

We pick things up at Kyle's Morrocan dinner party with Mauricio continuing to go in on Brandi. After Brandi finally tells Mauricio to go eff off, Kyle jumps in and whispers to Mauricio to back off. In her confessional, Kyle tells all: "You can't control what comes out of that girl's mouth. " It's annoying because Mauricio was definitely berating Brandi for about 30 minutes. People have limits. Kyle tries to gloss over it all, making it clear she didn't want Brandi to be attacked tonight and explaining that Mauricio's tight with Adrienne, so he felt compelled to insert himself into the drama.
