REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY: BravoTV Blogs… Vicki Gunvalson “Intense and Happy…Feels Bad For Alexis”, Sarah Winchester “WHY???”…


I am the one usually in the middle of the tension — or the target for the tension. I felt really bad for Alexis. I mean what was she to do. . .just sit there and agree with all of them as they are bashing her? It was brutal not only watching it, but also being there and really not doing anything to help her out. I felt no matter what I did I was going to be brought into it somehow.   NOTE:  WOW!  So, Vicki did nothing!  No matter how strong one is in their life — business or personal — nothing can compare to the hurt one feels when their friends all turn on you. I know that feeling and I am stronger for experiencing it — I guess.

I hope Alexis gains the strength from this pain and I hope she will come away from this hurt being a stronger and even more empowered woman. I really like Alexis and I think she has all the potential for her own greatness. In fact, I love all the girls. I just wish we could get to a place where we all can be friends and it’s not so divided. It sure would make life easier.   NOTE:  That will never happen… as we all know!  Without the continual pot-stirring, there would be no basis for any of the phony baloney Housewives “reality” shows!

I ask myself a lot what is it about women that puts us into this drama that we do to ourselves? Do men do that to each other? Do men go on a vacation and talk about their wives out loud? Do men call each other pretentious and fake?   NOTE:  Is Vicki serious here???  Does Vicki really expect viewers to believe that the ‘drama’ isn’t demanded of them from the producers?  Does Vicki really expect viewers to believe that she and the rest of the ‘Real Housewives’ get that Bravo paycheck in exchange for NO drama???  What a crock!!

I don’t think so nor have I ever heard it. I think there is something to learn from men in this area. Now don’t get me wrong, I am so glad I am a woman — but there are times when I wonder will we as women ever settle down with each other and start encouraging one another instead of breaking one down? What would it be like if we did?   NOTE:  There would be lots of the same drama if the name of the show were the “Real HUSBANDS of…” with the wives playing the ‘supporting’ roles.  Let’s hope THAT never happens!!!


The girls trip in Costa Rica this week looked liked a blast! I’m glad they were all able to get along (for the most part) and let loose and have some fun.  I’m so happy to hear that Vicki is so happy in her life right now. It’s always nice to see people in a good place and happy with who they are with and where their life is headed.

I’m looking forward to watching the rest of the Costa Rica trip next week. It looks absolutely amazing there!   Note to Sarah: Feel free to book a trip to Costa Rica… what’s stopping you???  A better question might be:  WHY is Sarah writing a BravoBlog???
