Hi Baby Dolls!
Wasn't Jamie and Rich's wedding gorgeous? Joe and I were so proud to be a part of it, and yes, we both cried. Like I said in my blog last week, I'm very proud to be on show that made history. I've always been such a big believer in love -- maybe that's why I have to say it three times: love, love, love! That's my natural way: I love, love, love people right away, I give them my heart and trust them until they prove different. It has gotten me hurt in the past, especially with some of my old friends, but I don't know how to be any other way and I don't want to be. I think if you put love and positive things out into the world, you'll get them back.
Thank you all for supporting my first appearance on QVC this weekend! It was crazy and nerve-wracking, but so fun! I loved when David did a happy dance when he tasted my food. That's the best part for me -- when people love what I've made. It feels so good.
I know the other Housewives keep making comments about how I must have a ghostwriter do everything for me. It's either a sign of jealousy that their own stuff isn't that good, or an insult that they think I'm stupid. Maybe it's both. Sorry that I can write well and have done so since my very first blog -- but I'm not perfect, I'm not an English teacher, I know I say "me and Joe" instead of "Joe and I," but I write how I talk. I do have a college degree, and yes Microsoft Word does have spell check, so I don't see how it's really all that hard. And if I did have someone else do it all for me, why am I able to go on pressure-filled live appearances like QVC and big speeches at libraries and stuff and manage to sound OK? I usually ignore all the little comments and insults, but this is one I'm pretty sick of, so I just want to put it to rest once and for all. I don't have a ghostwriter do everything for me. I have a co-author on my books, Heather Maclean, and her name is clearly on the cover. No mystery. She lives in the Midwest, has three kids of her own, and just wrote her 12th book. Believe me, she doesn't live in my kitchen and type all my stuff for me. She doesn't have the time, and you know I like to do things myself anyway. I don't even have a personal assistant or nanny. Remember when Melissa and her sisters were laughing last season about how I couldn't afford one? I'll take all the accusations as a compliment that I'm doing a pretty good job on my own.
