“This week you don’t see much of me other than packing for my trip to Florida,” says Vicki. “Every year my FMO holds an awards banquet based on the previous year’s production and I was proud to be acknowledged as one of the top producers in the Insurance & Financial Services industry. After my conference was done, I flew Briana and Ryan and their two boys from Oklahoma to Disneyworld and we spent another five days together. I just love being with my grandkids, Briana, and Ryan so there was no place I’d rather be…even Napa with the ladies.”
“What do you think of my blog post? Spot on or way off?” tweeted Meghan King Edmonds yesterday. The new girl in town has already begun stirring up trouble on the Real Housewives of Orange County. Although she doesn’t see it that way! In her blog, Meghan explains (and explains…and explains) why she was “floored” by Shannon Beador’s reaction to her in this week’s trip to Napa. Meghan also reiterates her mad love for Tamra Judge, and confesses that watching Shannon and David’s marriage issues play out on TV makes her “squirm.”
After praising Wheels Up, the private jet company that flew the ladies out to Heather Dubrow’s Collette party in Napa (hubby Jim is an investor), Meghan gushes about the janky homemade craft projects she foisted upon the women. “It’s true, I really do love to put my own personal touch on parties and special occasions so it will come as no surprise to those who know me that I hand-painted wine glasses. Hayley and her mom, LeAnn, helped me paint and it was so funny because we couldn’t really figure out what we were doing and made several duds before perfecting the process!” Aww, did Jimmy take Meghan to “Color Me Mine” for a playdate?
Shannon Beador has placed her marriage under a microscope this season of the Real Housewives of Orange County, and in her blog this week, she confesses she’s not too happy with the response she’s been getting to this grand experiment. In fact, she takes a few paragraphs to defend her behavior – and her choice to air her dirty laundry on TV – before launching into her take on this week’s episode.
“I am going to have to start before the episode even began. I noticed the title was ‘Whine Country’. Really?” Shannon begins, “I want to be very clear. I am not happy or excited about talking about my husband’s infidelity or the painful year plus that my family and I went through. But I happen to be on a reality show, I am honest, and we thought that sharing our story may help other couples in a similar situation.”
Real Housewives Of Orange County is a world unlike any other. It is a world in which one hires a premiere cake creator to design a cake shaped like a bottle of champagne. Then one reserves a seat on a private jet to fly said cake to the launch of their said champagne. Then, come to find out, the cake is actually fake – as in not really a cake, but a Styrofoam mold that resembles a cake, and the champagne is not really champagne, but a bubbly wine. Why so much precaution over a fake cake? Styrofoam robustly withstands grubby, unskilled hands of kindergarten crafters like Meghan Edmonds, so certainly it doesn’t need a seatbelt on a private jet, or it’s own personal valet. That’s just one of the many things that ponders me from last night’s episode. There are many, many more…
Heather Dubrow is headed to Napa to launch her champagne, which is not actually champagne, because it is not produced in France, therefore it must be called “Methode Champenoise.” Basically it’s bubbly wine. And calling bubbly wine “methode champenoise” is like calling a car port a “porte-cochere.” You can put fondant on a Styrofoam mold, but it’s still Styrofoam mold! Heather – accept it: you made a designer wine cooler!
The first question out of the gate was a fan wanting to know if the story out there was true claiming that Heather took her eight year old daughter to get her legs waxed. Is it true and isn’t she worried it’s sending a poor message? Heather blasted, “This came out in Star magazine. First of all it came out on Star.com and Terry and I Tweeted about the fact that it was not a true story and no one fact checked, no one called. They took the story but as I was landing in New York last night, I opened Star magazine and there’s an article there. First of all, my daughter is twelve, not eight. Second of all, it is unconscionable and across the line to take kids and put them in these situations. I’m sorry, they have just really, it’s the lowest of the low and I really do expect a retraction and an apology from Star magazine.”
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Kyle Richards, Chelsea Houska, and Kim Zolciak, love to show off their adorable kids/family photos on social media. It’s tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the sweetest photos from the past few weeks.

Still maintaining that sharing her marital problems with the world is more helpful than hurtful, Shannon claims that the couples therapy filmed for RHOC’s first two episodes “changed both our lives. I never thought our relationship would benefit as much as it did. I wish you could have seen more of the two days that we spent there—so many deep and touching moments.”
In case you were feeling stressed out about the lack of available Real Housewives wines (and other sparkly alcoholic beverages), Heather Dubrow is launching her own champagne, not to be confused with Fabellini. Appropriately this champagne is named after Heather’s 5-year-old daughter Colette, who leads Heather to drink. Heather commissions a giant champagne bottle-shaped cake, that she is flying in its own seat on a private plane to Napa for the launch party of Colette Champagne. All of the ladies are invited. Lifestyles of the rich and guest role on canceled sitcom hopefully famous!
Literally fell asleep – snoooooze, snore, zzzzzzzzzz, yawn at the thought of another Housewives hawking wine storyline.
