After her strange video “footage” and behavior in Iceland, Peggy Sulahian is trying
in vain to dig herself out of a pretty deep hole in her blog this week.
The Real Housewives Of Orange County newcomer still doesn’t seem to understand the basic tenets of the show she’s on though – namely, that (sometimes) you need to out-yell the women around you to make your point! Peggy can’t even seem to explain herself clearly, however. And it’s doing her no favors.
Peggy begins by reflecting on Iceland, which she hated every second of. “For all the beauty Iceland has to offer, it was the ugliest place I could have been. I was enlightened by all that I learned during this trip. ‘Living in the here and now’ takes on a new meaning for these women, and an apology is only words that we spread around to get what we want for the moment.”
At least one person tried to comprehend Peggy’s feelings, even if it got nowhere in the end. Peggy expresses thanks to Lydia McLaughlin for her
completely wasted efforts: “Bless Lydia for reaching out and trying to mediate after all that happened. Unfortunately for her, she didn’t know that I had recorded all that had taken place and was now going to see the vulgarities from the prior evening. Lydia means well; she has a tender and kind heart, but she has no idea what she is defending. She truly wants to see the good in people. Though that is an admirable quality, many do not deserve her kindheartedness.”
Out of “respect” for Lydia, Peggy acquiesced to go to their final dinner in Iceland. But it didn’t take long for the drama to start after she got there! “We arrived during a beautiful performance, and the restaurant and the entertainment were extraordinary. I was not comfortable with these ladies and situated myself away from them. When Kelly [Dodd] approached me to ‘apologize,’ that’s when everything went south. Why couldn’t we cordially sit at dinner and enjoy the evening? Why did Kelly need to come and speak with me after her unkind and disrespectful words?”
Essentially blaming Kelly for setting her off, Peggy continues, “All I know is at a time when women are advocating to be respected, rather than standing by each other, we prefer to tear each other apart. And for someone to say I am sheltered because I don’t throw insults is ludicrous. Are you sure I am the confusing one? How does one respond to a woman to whom you apologize and she reacts with, ‘I understand but you are a little off’ while she (Shannon [Beador]) is the one yelling?”
Once Shannon got into the mix (after Peggy revealed the video of Meghan Edmonds’ baby crying), Peggy claims her intentions got muddled. She defends in her blog, “Honestly, you can’t even get a word in edgewise while Shannon is yelling. I couldn’t explain that my story began with the time frame of when I heard Meghan’s baby cry — that is what drew me. I have no desire to criticize anyone’s parenting! But again, Shannon!” (Huh?)
In the end, even Vicki Gunvalson couldn’t stick up for the perpetually confused Peggy Sulahian. Though she understands Vicki wanting to stay out of the drama, Peggy admits she was disappointed by the lack of support from her “friend.”
Peggy closes, “I was hurt by what she did or more by what she didn’t do. I did approach her to discuss the matter, and we did resolve it. We handled it as adults should. And though it will take some time, I do understand that she does not wish to engage in conflict for many reasons, not the least being her health.”
TELL US: DID PEGGY REALLY NOT INTEND TO CRITICIZE MEGHAN’S PARENTING? IS SHE CAPABLE OF EXPLAINING ANYTHING CLEARLY?
