Dana Wilkey

Dana address the amount of "slut" talk and why she wishes she had been there to defend Taylor.

on Feb 6, 20120

All this talk about sluts and swearing has made me feel like a cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hillbillies instead of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. LOL. Look you guys: nobody should want to be a slut, dress like a slut, or call themselves one. I want you all to have self-esteem! To me, dressing like a slut means that you dress to show off your physical assets because you think you don’t have anything else to offer. Why would you limit yourself like that? Men should be here to entertain you, not the other way around! Brandi you are not a slut so stop saying it!

I couldn't help but think to myself as I watched this episode that there are so many of us that just want to be friends like Taylor and Lisa or me and Kyle (in the beginning), but for some reason there were all these walls up. This got me wondering why is trust such a big issue in this group? Is it possible that because our friendships are developing publicly and that all the girls have so much influence that people are scared to let their guard down? I think the answer is yes. I also think everyone is so busy in their lives that when we aren’t forced into hanging out none of us would bother. Thank god for group events! It is true the older you get the harder it is to develop relationships so making friends for most of us takes effort. I really think these ladies are all cool in their own way but it is sooooo hard to get hang time. For the record, the girls are worth it (yes, even Brandi if she would just stop pissing me off for more than 5 minutes at a time).

On another note, I just want to say the story about Kyle and her Christmas party was true. I was at the party, and after Kyle invited Brandi and she said she couldn’t come, Brandi accidentally wrote a text to Kyle saying "Kyle is such a C-U-Next-Tuesday (female private part)." Kyle told me she was actually really hurt and frustrated, since she had tried to make things right with them. As far as I was concerned, I don’t know what I was more floored by -- how messed up that was or how stupid it was to text something nasty to Kyle about Kyle. Duh.

Unfortunately, you don't fit into the show. First, you're trying too hard to fit in that no one watching the show knows who you are. I like that you can afford nice apparel and accessories, but it seems like you just won lotto and you're having a hard time adjusting to the new money.

Be yourself, and give the viewer the chance to like you.

Dana, I have to say you are one the most down to earth house wife out of all the shows on Bravo, I am also very surprised to find out that you are from Methuen Mass, wow, I was born in Lawrence, and lived in Methuen most of my life, right on 110. Wish I could see more of you on the show, you bring in a breath of fresh air.

That does explain a lot..as to why you behave the way you do...But ..careful whose butt you chose to blow the smake up...choosing the "mean girls" isn't good because they you were there to make Kim look "good" wow...a true reality!

Dana, I know this won't make it through the moderators, but I just have to say I can't understand why everyone, including you, is so mean to Brandi. None of you have given her a chance, save Lisa and Camille, and your cruelty has no basis. What did Brandi ever do or say to you that you made up your mind to dislike her so much? Just because she calls it as she sees it is no reason to treat her so unfairly. Afterall, I would rather have a friend who calls BS when warranted than one who is two-faced and says one thing to my face and something else behind my back. For this reason, I will never like you and I hope to never see your face on this series again.

Yes, I agree, I do feel as though I am watching a show about the Beverly Hillbillies, when you are on...You make me nauseous. I feel as though I am reading a blog from a catty high school viewer than a real housewife.

I do not understand why there are so many viewers who are so rude and harsh to Dana. Yes maybe her announcing what everything she has costs was not the most flattering or enduring thing to do, but do not disregard how nice she has been in season 2. She has not stirred up drama and she has been pleaseant in my book. Yes, she did stand up for Taylor and I am glad she did! She was an awesome friend to her, so why are people upset about that. Wouldn't you want a friend like that? Taylor needed friends and support in the tough time she was going through, whether all her actions were right or wrong (thats just your opinion) she needed help and guidance and Dana and other Housewives helped her through it. We didn't get to see enough of her really for people to be judging her. After all she was on here as a cast friend not a cast member. Although, I think she would make a lovely cast member. Please people give her a chance before you label and judge her she seems like a really nice lady and finding her place in this show.

Dana,

From talking about the price of ridiculous babbles (tacky), to kissing the Richards sisters' behinds - even when they are clearly in the wrong, to injecting yourself into conversations where you are not even on the involved parties' minds(!), your TRY HARD makes me feel sad for you.

I hope you can take the criticisms offered here to begin developing real character, and become a less vapid human in the process.

Dana, I gotta give you props because it seems like you were ultimately the kindest to Taylor. After the truth about Taylor's abuse came out, what I always wondered was why everyone questioned Taylor instead of supporting her. Domestic violence is a very messy thing -- abuse victims stand by their abusers, refuse to leave -- it's not logical but that is abuse. You said in one of the episodes that if your girl tells you she's being abused, you stand by her (or something like that). Everyone else should've said the same thing. You don't blame a victim for not being "strong enough" to leave... there are so many complexities to domestic violence. I think Taylor is doing an important thing in writing a book about her abuse. She's unburdening all the lies; she's learning to live without the abuse; she's recognizing the changes she needs to make. If my friend tells me she's suffering abuse, she can expect to find me at her door trying to get her to leave. You seemed to be the only one to express that, at least on camera. Good on you.

Dana it is painful to watch you and painful to read your blog. PLEASE STOP TRYING SO HARD. When you write that you're a cast member, I think you're mostly trying to convince yourself of that.

bravo please post!

Sorry Dana but your desperate attempts to stay relevant are so uncomfotable, almost as uncomfortable as watching your butt kissing on game night. If you notice all your blogs are about Brandi, yet she rarely blogs about you. She has seem to taken the high road when it comes to you, please learn from her and do the same! Can't keep knocking the girl for saying what everyone else is thinking!

Are you a cast member now? I thought you were a "Friend of Cast Member"??????

What do you want on that show? You can afford a lollipop holder and have sunglasses that cost what my car costs, do you think you would interest America? Even if you were dirt poor at one time and earned it, now you throw it away, do you think we want to see that?

You do not know how to be a friend when you are spending so much time trying to influence everyone.

Besides if you have a new baby, stay home and avoid the stress, you have enough money, right?

Don't defend Taylor, you do not really know any of those women, but you want to be in the in crowd, well you do not have to defend Taylor, she is on every talk show talking like she was born with a halo.....sorry, but Russell had a voice too, did he leave a letter, can she say anything good about that man.......or a "no comment would be acceptable, as he is dead" and there are 3 living children...........

Think about what you are doing..Kyle being hurt? Nothing can possibly get thru to Kyle as she has said worse about Camille, Kim, Lisa, Brandi and you........so just be a good mother.

Excuse me. But Taylor started the crap with Brandi. Taylor mentioned Brandi's marriage before Brandi said a word about Taylor's. You might want to re-watch that part. Brandi never starts fights. Kyle, Taylor, Kim, and now Adrienne, do. Honey you are still trying to fit in, but you may want to think about jumping on the other band wagon, cause Kyle's isn't going anywhere anymore. She has blown it with most of the fans.

How did Brandi the wird'o troublemaker make it on the show and not sweet cool Dana? I guess they needed a freak who starts sh*t? Don't get lost like 1/2 the other girls on it are. I like Lisa,Kyle (sometimes),and you. The rest of them got some junk souls!

hhhmm, not so much a fan... I think the show would benefit if you do not return... Sorry, just being honest. You don't seem to match up with the rest of the cast.

Brandi only called herself a slut so Kyle would stop calling her names, taking the power away from Kyle and keeping it to herself. Brandi can be smart and cunning, watch out she may be more than any of you girls can handle!!!

Dana, you seem so cool, very funny, loyal to friends and I love the fact that you actually take the time to blog on every episode. I don't want this to sound mean, but you tried SO HARD to fit in with the girls that I think it turned a lot of people off. You seem bring Brandi up often in your blogs so I'm guessing it's jealousy because she is also new but has more involvement in the show and is interesting (albiet interesting for being a little crazy, but she is interesting). If you are brought back next season, JUST BE YOU!!!!

I like you Dana. :) I think a lot of the negative comments have to do with how you were initially "edited." I wasn't sure what to think of you at first, but I soon realized you are a funny and genuinely nice person. I think a lot of your "guess how much these cost" remarks were really just a cheeky way to make fun of some of the ridiculousness regarding material things. Lighten up, people. :) I hope you'll be back next season.

It seems to me that you are still so desperate for Kyle's friendship that you will say and back anything she has to say, even if it is wrong and hurtful. Get a backbone and your own opinions. I honestly think Brandi would have your back way before Kyle ever would. To me it seems she uses you as someone to agree with her.

Funny, Taylor has never once defended you. In fact she told Andy on WWH that she prefers it to stay the original cast. That means you are OUT Pam.

You try WAY TOO HARD girl. Tone it down and stop putting price tags on everything. Tacky, tacky, tacky. You can stand up for Taylor all you want but she will use you up and throw you away just like she did with Russell.

Dana, I am among a segment of people who find that accidental text from Brandi to Kyle absolutely hilarious. Andy did too! Just sayin!

Dana ....we all know about the Christmas story already ...Brandi had no problem owning up to that ...so whats the big deal....clearly Brandi and Kyle are not friends and Brandi wants to keep it that way. You also mentioned that Camille needs to move on and not be so mean to Taylor ....did you watch this show at all? Taylor you BFF ...is nuts and really needs help...this is a stable person and even last year she was so full of herself.

You would be a lot more interesting to watch if you stopped trying so hard to fit in with women who seem to want nothing to do with you.

Wow Dana, I will have to applaud you. Your blog reads like high school drama, or passing notes in the hallway at school. Of all that happened this season, this was the only thing you could come up with ? Is it not enough that you and your mean girl friends (Kyle, Taylor and Adrienne) tortured Brandi the entire season? We all know what happened with the text. Move on, get to something important,'or maybe you don't know the difference. Oh and by the way, quit trying so hard to fit it, it makes you look desperate !!! Brandi is far from perfect but of all on the show I do like her the best and feels she is the most real !!

Once again Dana....opening your mouth when it isnt necessary. Its obvious how you feel about Brandi, just re-watch the party you gave and how you, as Hostess, allowed her to be treated.

go away already.

i hope you don't get asked back and if you do i hope they don't air the wedding. It will probably have price tags the size of posters on everything...

Brandi said she sent the text. She doesn't lie or make excuses like some cast members (ahem....)

Also, how will Taylor's book save lives? Is she planning on giving it away for free?
