Hi Cat, I love you and your husband. I thought I heard you say on Andy Cohen's show that you are no longer with him. Tell me I misheard!

I am curious as to what pissed you off most about the vineyard? There were several things going on. First the whole security thing, Tareq being arrogant and the grocery store grapes. I personally would have flipped as well but it appears as if the security threat pissed you off most.

Cat Would you be willing to debate Sarah and can you see England from your back porch?

Love your sense of humor as I love all things UK! Would love to see you carry some Mulberry bags on the show!!!!

Cat, I have to ask, who chose your eyeglasses for the Sarah Palin spoof? I think the horn rimmed style of the glasses is what said, "not sarah"....Did anyone else tell you the eye wear was what threw the spoof?

My mother in law was a Londoner and Yanks were too late with the war, wore too many jeans, had no manners, etc. It just is what it is! Everyone needs to back off and let you be yourself! That's the fun in diversersity, right? You bring back good memories!

Hi Cat, you are my favorite ! I always knew you had a lovely heart, after all your children are beautiful and happy and they are a reflection of who you are. D.C. is a bore and you bring humour to the city !

Cat: I noticed how sensitive you were to Michaele's assistant's comment that you were being "bitchy." Do you think that you can take it as well as you dish it?

That Sarah Palin outfit helped to "make" that episode. We Americans have become too "politically correct" and too "babied". That is why we have such a hard time hearing the truth and taking it like a pro. That outfit was hilarious and it spices up the DC scene. She may not always be right, but respect the fact that we know where she stands....many people are too fake to allow that to happen. They rather cover up how they truly feel out of being too afraid of what others think. We all do it, but it is kind of nice seeing someone do some straight talk. Most Americans now want to see "real" people who are not afraid to speak up and not afraid to add some humor with a good dose of truth behind it....sometimes that gets the point across better than a "civil" debate.

Dear Cat: Based on your experience with NHS, what is your opinion on why it is so difficult to establish a similar set-up of publicly funded health care in America?

christi33

I disagree with you...there is a difference between being compassionate and being a doormat afraid to speak up. We Americans need to stop being "babied" by everyone and do some straight talking ourselves. Cat may not always say the right thing, but she is more "real" than most people. if you see what is going on in this country now, people are fed up with the overly done political correctness, phony, and "hide behind the cover up" attitude. Maybe if we Americans could handle the truth like a pro, then we wouldn't have gotten ourselves in the trouble we have now..we have not learned how to be mature enough to take straight talk and face our own issues head on. Cat may go too far at times, but at least she is not hiding behind a mask.

Who would you rather be stranded on a desert island with? Kelly Bensimone, Danielle Staub or Michaele Salahi?

I would like to ask if there is anyone new in your life since I am not sure when you broke up with your husband. I love your sense of humor & I like it when people speak their minds but sometimes you need to say it to yourself if you know what I mean ;) You can always talk to that person later whom you may think has said or done something stupid~ha

Why is it so many of the relationships on this show head for divorce court? Now I hear Edwina is divorcing her husband, who could be next?

Cat is just being a Brit. Brits think Americans are uptight about certain things like speaking our minds. They do not have the compassion gene that Americans do!

cat you seem to be the most grounded of the housewives,now that you have heard michaele salahi has ms, does that make you want to be more empathetic towards her? in all kindness someone needs to tell her to put the wine glass down, have better dietary goals and take the heels off! do you think you could be the one to voice that to her and if you did would she accept your advice as sincere? thanks sf

I'm curious what if anything you like about DC and living in the DC area? You don't seem to have a very high opinion of the city in general.

After spending a few summers in London I fell in love with the city. The one thing I did not like about the city was the food. Indian take-away is great but I prefer the choices here. Do you find that there is a big difference in your eating habits here in the states? Love your sarcasm! I find you to be quite hilarious.

Cat, do you think it's possible that Edwina suddenly realized that she didn't want to be associated with you or any of the other housewives, and faked her vertigo attack?

Would you please share your reaction to these two ideas: 1.) the attendance was minimal because people heard the DC Housewives would be taping there, and 2.) Edwina had a sudden epiphany and realized she would have to leave DC if she let you scramble her eggs one more time - which you were set to do in your Palin outfit.

Hi Cat,

You are refreshingly witty and spot on with your observations and opinions. You aren't racist at all - just honest and British! I wish more people were like you.

Do your daughters like Washington, D.C.? How did they adjust to moving to this area? What is the relationship status with your Charles?

Regards!

Thank you for saying what I am thinking. You really make the show. Michaele reminds me of a yappy dog that is jumping on everyone begging for attention. I wouldn't be shocked if she starts humping someone's leg. Now for my question. As a mother of two girls, what has been the hardest thing about moving to the U.S.?

Self-Awareness - Do you realize that it was ironic that you called Tareq controlling and needing manners when people feel the same way about you?

Cat- How familiar were you with the RHO... franchise before you signed up for the DC incarnate? Did you have a favorite RH show (OC, Atlanta, NY, Jersey) and/ or Housewife? Any regrets- would you do it (season 1) again?

also

What has the reaction of your family & friends back home in London been to you on the show?

Hi Cat: Love your upper class posh accent, and you are out spoken. Sometimes you should think before you speak. Yet, you make the DC show happen. Thanks.

I could not agree more!! I LOVE CAT!!!! : ) British people are known to be proper and Cat is, and she also lets you know where you stand with her. I love her directness and how she removes herself from situations she wants no part of - like the wine making day! LOL!! Like Cat would say, "What a bloody JOKE!"

I don't understand why you believe being British means that you have to forgo manners and be rude. There is a difference between being honest and direct and being outspoken.

As an expat from London living in the US like Cat I can see where she's coming from. She's pretty damn funny. I amuse my colleagues with the same brand of directness that makes their jaw drops. Hilarious.

CAT, What is your background...did you go to British boarding school, were you raised in a traditional prim and proper English household, and if so, are you now socially rebellious because of it? If not raised a proper British girl, as you have gotten older, have you fueled your ways based on more of a cockney Brit attitude?

Cat, I think you are an awesome addition to the Housewife "club." I love your no nonsense attitude and I wish I was more like that myself. Please don't let people change who you are! You are a woman to look up to.

Why do you feel you can say anything you want, yet you were so angry when when Michale's assistant stood up to you and said something back? Something is not right with that picture.

Cat - my mom always taught me if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. It has always served me well in life! Now that you see yourself on the show, don't you feel that you are too harsh/negative? I can appreciate your opinion on things, but your delivery is way off.

I didn't live in posh London but I did live in Leeds for 2 years and I agree completely with the British Health Care System (and the British School System). Glad to hear your comment defending mother England. I thought the doctors were some of the kindest I've ever met. I was in hospital in Wales and even there treatment was kind. Emergency rooms were my only complaint but they rival the ones here now. EVERYONE has a right to medical care! Thanks for being so outspoken on this issue. US Health care is NO LONGER number one! I miss England and am so glad to have you on the show!

cat why are you so negative everywhere you go? If you don't like the people don't go.

Cat, I want to start out by saying first I think you're absolutely great on the show and you add that extra pizazz that every good bravo show needs! My question is was there something off camera that michaele said or did that influenced you to think so little of her? And if so what? Am i wrong in thinking this?

I love that people know exactly where they stand with you - it's refreshing! In that way, you remind me of Bethenny (RHONYC). Care to dish on which housewives have had any cosmetic surgery?

Cat, you set yourself up to be the Conservative villain after you so earnestly insisted that the Bush's were "good people"; but later you gave that Republican Health Care Lobbyist a stinging critique of the America's health care system and even threw in a few hilarious Sarah Palin cracks before coming out as die-hard democrat. Are you batting for both teams, or is it all fake DC politics? (Or maybe, a benign case of name dropping?)

Cat, you're a square peg in a world that insists everything be a round peg! Hooray for you! Finally an individual who isn't afraid to speak her mind and do as she likes (within reason)! Screw the status quo -- welcome to the colonies!

Not a question. I just want to say how sorry I am you and Charles didn't work out. I can only imagine how painful it must be to see these flashbacks from a year ago when you were still in love with each another. Carry on, girl!

Cat - Thank you for being you .. You're a breath of fresh air on a show full of stuffiness. (no offense of course to Mary, Lynda and Stacie) I was in stitches when you arrived at the Republican party as Sarah Palin. People may be hard on you because of who you are .. but I happen to like that about you. Since you tell people like it is. I'm hoping you'll be back for Season 2. It wouldn't be the same without you.

cat, have you ever thought of going back to england and starting a real housewives of england series? now THAT would be interesting to watch! also do you think so many people would consider your comments rude over there? Lastly, will you admit that sometimes you say things just for the shock value but know they are better off not said out loud?
