Dana Wilkey

Dana gives us the details on her lollipop necklace and her preference on the dueling Las Vegas trips.

on Dec 13, 20110

I was really happy Adrienne invited me to party with her, Camille, and Brandi in Las Vegas. I think I was a better fit with those girls in Vegas that weekend, as opposed to being with Lisa or Taylor. Frankly, Lisa is way too stiff for me and Taylor had so much on her plate emotionally, I'm not sure I would have recommended the trip to her.

It's fun sometimes to hang out with the ladies in separate groups. With so many strong personalities, it's hard to get acquainted with each girl individually or get a word in edge wise—unless, of course, you're yelling at each other! At least with four girls it was much more manageable. It was nice that Brandi was there as well, since both of us are the "newbies" in the group. I actually got to know her a lot better on that trip, and we developed the best love hate/relationship, which we still enjoy today. Thank goodness for some (drama-free) time hanging out with the girls. At last the fun, I had been looking for.

I'd like to thank Adrienne for putting me up in a room with disco lights in the shower. Wish you could have seen it! It was also great seeing Camille and Brandi getting along (on the dance floor), I just hope the two don't start dating. LOL, kidding.

dana, really you are a nice girl. I heard you talk about your upsets in life at the reunion show..so we know you weren't born rich and your insecurities show through. I have met many women like you who want to be noticed and credited for things. It's kind of like you're not or they're not even yet believing they have things of value so they speak them out loud over and over and it becomes uplifting to them but like a broken record to viewers. I'm not going to bash you because you've been bashed enough here. But, stop it..it won't get you brownie points with the elite and it does make others uncomfortable. I hope you get an agent and someone to help you groom your personality for next season if we see you around. You are a natural beauty.. I agree. Good Luck.

Dana, First of all LISA is not stiff she is British and I love her for that.. They have a sense of humor than most take as being dry or persnipity (no thats not spelled right so spelling monitors need not mention it). How do I know this my husband is a proud Brit and sometimes he comes across like Lisa.. How the hell you and brandi got in this mix with these (atleast 4 of them are) ladies is beyond me...if not for the chemistry that Lisa, Kyle, Kim (although sometimes out in left field) and Andrienne bring to the show, no one would know who you are... Leave Lisa alone.. maybe you and brandi could get your own reality show on BRAVO: the Real Desperate Housewives of Beverly Hills..

You seem like a nice person, I have to say though the lollipop is riddiculous, that lollipop could save a small country.

I can think of a million better ways to spend a million dollars than on a ridiculous piece of jewelry. Try charity. That's what real rich people do....

The last "Ambassador" for the diamond encrusted LollyPop was Kim Kardasian....EWWWWW GROSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! I would NOT put my lips near that let alone tell people that she was the last one holding that thing!!! YUCK!!!!!

Dana..you really need to TRY and just be **one of the girls**..NOT to try and butter up the one you are talking to at the time. And IMO you were way out of line at the Birthday party and smarted off to Russell and made a comment about him wating people to believe he was father of the year just because he and Taylor had scheduled The Birthday Surprise (the horse) at 4pm and that didn't fit in with your timing..Was none of your business and your comment was way out of line. I have always seen Russell to dearly love his daughter and now that we know of his passing I hope Kennedy will always remember the special gift from her father and her mother.

Ugh! Really, the lollipop holder? That's outrageous. I can't believe someone would actually find that attractive or worthy of discussion. And yes, don't discuss Lisa. You have no business calling her stiff. Like the other viewer wrote, you wish you could be so stiff. Knock it off!

What made you decide Lisa was stiff?

Did you tell her We're together forever, always have been. It's what we're about?

Dana,

This may not be the show for you. Your behavior has gone from name dropper to nouve riche behavior. And everyone knows that new money rarely gets t be "old money". And with 25 thousand dollar sunglasses...you won't get to be old money.

Dana, When are you going to admit to yourself that you just don't fit in? Accusing Lisa of being "stiff" is not going to stop us from seeing that the two of you will never be friends. It's so sad to see you try so hard to fit in. Bringing a $1M lollipop holder to dinner was not going to do the trick. Just another product placement that you won't get to take home...

I think off camera you would be fun to hang with. On camera, well, you try to hard.

Just be yourself and have fun. I know it is in there. Trying to impress is so exhausting. Show those ladies how to loosen up a bit. Way to up tight and stodgy.

Be YOU!!!

Hi Dana...I am glad that you are on the show, and hope you will be next season too. Stay away from Taylor, she is the craziest person I have ever seen on TV, and she is not even acting. I do not like Brandi, she is skaggy with no class. All the others are great. Please stop the name dropping and talk about how much things cost, Relax and be yourself, you are beautiful, witty, and smart.

It makes me sad to read the mean comments that others wrote to you. Please don't let them get you down. You do talk too much about having a lot of money and it is kinda insensitive to those of us having a hard time in this economy....but I have a feeling the things you state outright are the same thoughts that go on in the minds of rich people like Adrienne and Lisa and Kyle. I like your bubbly personality and your sense of humor. You are also very pretty and not anorexic or plasticized, which is a real plus for a Bravo reality TV show, therefore you stand out as a natural beauty.

Do you get a cut of profits from the sunglass store you mentioned and the company that made the blinged lolly? That's the only thing I can figure. I'm over it.

All I can say about your persona is: Wow! Aside from continually being obsequious toward the power elite Adrienne and most popular K & K sisters, you drop names left and right and shout out the cost of your most expensive crapola as though you were a contestant on the Price is Right. Thank goodness, your time spent in each ep is brief. A little of you goes a very long way. Hopefully, your presence won't be renewed.

Alright Dana, I want to cut you some slack but I can't. Here's some advise, just be yourself. You don't have to impress anyone. No one cares what you have.They care who you are.

Seriously? Lisa isnt stiff. She's the opposite of stiff. She just doesnt like you. Which you should be used to by now, since no one on the show likes you.

Dana, Is money and how much something is worth all you care about? It sure seems like it. I read the blog about what some of the housewives wanted for Christmas and everything on your list was very expensive and pricey, go figure! I hope your husband has lot's of money, because with you around he is going to need it! I hope Bravo reads these comments and does not add you to the cast next season, you really bring nothing good to the show that is worth watching.

oh yeah, I forgot about your comment on the drama free time. U do realize its Taylor causing the drama. She chose to live w/it, she is the 1 who put her daughter in danger, not Camille. U r suppose to be her friend, u met the gals thru her. Why didn't u ever try to get her out of that house or was most of the drama a lie? I felt bad 4 Russell He was letting her bleed him of security in order to keep her happy. Taylor just kept spending and spending. After the mail fr/the 60K party (that u organized) did she not learn a lesson? With the help of videos, at least Kennedy will remember these over lavish stupid birthday parties. I feel that the pressures of the show attributed to his suicide, I thought your comments about him being the father (at K's ranch party) were uncalled 4. I have a feeling that taylor did not confide in u, cause she knew u would add fuel to the little flame that turned into a massive forrest fire, ending in her hubby's suicide. Its sad to think that Russell felt he had no other choice but 2 take his own life. My hubby passed away a yr ago and he fought everyday of the previous 2 1/2 yrs to live but the cancer cells were eating him alive. He was a very strong man who had survived a horrifying childhood and still turned out to be my Prince. If I have learned anything from the tragidies of my 58 yrs on this earth, I learned that life is to short to worry about material possessions or brag about them. A fine spouse and family s all that matters. u should be putting all that moulah into a trust fund 4 your son, cause we don't know how bad the economy will be in 10-20 yrs from now.

Several of the housewives have played the editing card at some point or another, especially when they are seen in a negative light. In Dana's case, I am willing to argue that it's actually true. I seriously, seriously doubt that she talks about money any more or less than the other HWs! I thought the lollipop holder was awesome! Practical . . .no, but it was unique and fun (doesn't mean I"d be sucker -get it?- enough to buy one.) But really! I think Dana talks about a variety of things, including her family and business ventures. We just don't hear it because she is truly edited for content. When she hasn't been shown speaking solely about money, she is really fun to watch.

A million dollar functional necklace ... To hold a lollipop!!! I fell out of my chair laughing! Any ideas as to How many women in the world would consider a lollipop holder a necessity? Yeah. I came up with the same answer... Only wannabe Dana/Pam. Ha! How about a real evening purse to go along with the necklace instead of the suitcase you were carrying that night? You have no sense of style no matter how much you say you pay for your stuff. You are so funny!

My girlfriends and I now make wagers before every episode your on. We bet on how many minutes it takes you to mention the price of something you have. You've made me lose a small bundle because you can't even make it five minutes before you mention how much something costs. Get over it, if your only contribution to the show is to mention how much things costs, then they can replace you with an adding machine with a picture of your face taped to it.

Are you the product placement friend of the housewives? Seriously, Bravo just let you use your blog to shamelessly promote a product. Next week will you be at the white party promoting Clorox?

More "designer name-dropping - you just can't help yourself can you? And, of all names - Kim Kardashian?

Dana, you need to give this up and find another way to make yourself relevant to this show!

I wish you would stop putting a price tag on everything you own or borrow. I hope Bravo does not add you to the show because you add nothing to the show other than telling the viewer how much something costs.

I don't think you'll be asked back for next season but I hope you learned something from viewing yourself this season. You can be such a better person than what you showed on Bravo. Being nice and being true to yourself is always better than kissing peoples behinds especially when they don't even care for you. It was hard to watch you; even I became embarrassed for you. Lesson learned, I hope!

Oh dear, I think it's pretty clear, the writing's on the wall. Dana, I don't think you'll be back next year. Take this as a learning experience. You a fine person, you just didn't show it but we know it's there. Move on.

Enough already. I'm sure you're a warm, caring mother and friend, but you come across as crass and high-schoolish. Being apart of the "It group" (at the moment) appears to take up most of you time. RHOBH may not be the right platform for you.

You simply don't fit in with the rest of the ladies Dana. It's been my experience with wealthy people that they are very unassuming and never talk about how much things cost. Who really cares how much you pay for something? I hope Bravo reconsiders your spot on this show.

Why do you feel the need to keep slamming Lisa? Personally, I don't find her stiff at all, and find her to be both fun and witty. Oh, and the Chipmunks and the audience didn't seem to find her so stiff when she did her little dance, now did they?

I don't think Bill Gates would ever buy anything that you do. Take cues from him on how real rich people act.

MandyCandy

It's not that Lisa is "stiff" it's the fact she hasn't taken to you. Probably because you seem to brag constantly about how much your things cost or what brand you are wearing. Were you poor growing up? Are you nouveau riche? Because you act just like a person with some new wealth that has to brag about it to the world for fear of being looked down upon by the other ladies. It screams insecurity. Besides, Lisa was too busy running two restaurants, preparing for her daughter's wedding and lap dancing to care about how much you spend, what you wear or some ridiculous item of jewelry.

I think Bravo added you just to annoy the viewers as they realize the viewers are pretty fead up with the drama. Hope they rethink this...From the viewers perspective, all we want is to see the original group (minus Taylor) having a great time interacting with each other...simple.

Dana, Dana. At first I felt sorry for you because you were trying so hard. It’s so uncomfortable to WATCH, so I know it must be uncomfortable to "be." I say at first, because I assumed after this many episodes you would have relaxed out if it, but it appears to be who you are. Yikes. I think it’s pretty safe to say, while filming you thought you were “in” with the viewers because you were “in” as Kyle’s bequeathed approval new girl. Not so much as you’ve obviously learned she’s grown weary on the viewers. Of course you were sympathetic with Taylor, she brought you into this show, but you have to see the writing on the wall. I don’t believe you will be back next season and you shouldn’t be. You coyly sided with the mean sisters and worse, you’ve been passive aggressive mean AND outwardly mean as manipulative as a cowardly 6th grade bully. Time to go dear. It wasn’t a good plan and you’re not learning which means you think you are right. Bye Bye.

Dana Dana Dana...... you are trying way to hard to impress the wrong people. Perhaps you need to pack away the bling for the reunion show and just be yourself. I'd like to see who that person is. I have a feeling you didn't grow up with wealth and possibly you don't know how to act around those that did. Either way, just please stop trying to impress everyone. Oh, and Lisa compared to Brandi and Camille might look a bit stiff but she isn't trying to be like them. She's just being herself and many people love that.

Vee Lu

Lisa, is the farthest from stiff and correct me if I'm wrong but it wasn't so long ago that you and Taylor were BFF's and you were defending her behavior to everyone . Now you're talking about you don't know if you could be around her because of her emotional stability? Lady, what side of the fence are you going to be on? It doesn't matter anyway I just hope Bravo is reading these blogs and opt not to have you return next season. Yawn!!!!!!

Pam oh Pam. I thought I might get a chance to see the real you this episode, and I hope that wasn't it!! A million dollar sucker holder makes me sick. Try not coming off so fake, needy, and materialistic one of these days, and you might gain a fan or 2. Lisa stiff?? She's classy, funny and honest. I dont see stiff at all, have you ever watched the show?

I don't find Lisa to be "stiff" at all, that has to be the most inaccurate statement I've heard yet. You seem to be likeable, but you try waaayyyy too hard to fit in the group. I also find it interesting that you would rather spend time with Brandi who has said a negative comment to you, that spend time with your good friend Taylor who was hurting at the time.

Rora

You really try way too hard to fit in and all you seem to care about is money. I cannot relate to you in any way, shape or form. Hopefully you are not back next season. Brandi is great though. I bet that gets under your skin that Brandi has so many fans. Also, leave Lisa alone. She is the best! You my dear are forgettable.
