Hello from 25,000 feet (or however high shuttle jets fly) - on my way to Ohiiiiiiio for a big meeting and recovering from a nasty 12 hour bug that is systematically running through the whole family - I had it yesterday and believe me you don't want it! Had an ominous text from Simon on the way to Teterboro Airport and I have my fingers and toes crossed that he doesn't get it.

We've just come back from a lovely getaway over Memorial Day weekend. Although we don't go to the Hamptons much, we decided to this past weekend and probably will do so over a couple of weekends this summer. On Saturday afternoon, as we've done in previous years, we attended Jason & Haley Binn's Hamptons Magazine party - always a big opening summer event.

Alex, I have to say that you are the best "Housewife" yet. I feel as though that you have the most class than any of the rest on the show. The Countess brags too much about herself and yet she can't keep an eye on her spouse, who by the way has a wondering eye. Jill is just too loud and has very lose lips. Bethaney is very insecure. Ramona, well, she is Ramona who does not have clue that some married couples are very thick. Ramona needs to watch out for her man as well because from this angle I sit from, he has a wondering eye. She and the Countess might become best friends yet.

Alex, stay true and continue to do what you do best.

Warmly, Kim

Hi Alex - I just want to say that I love the way you roll with the punches and don't let some of the other women "ruffle your feathers". I am a 40-something woman living in the south who is far removed from any "socialite" existance and it just thrills me to know that even the upper eshilon have the same drama with their girlfriends. ha! I'd like to comment on your relationship with Simon of which has been bashed there on the show. I think you & Simon are a great couple. You complement one another and share each other's quirkiness. (is that a word? LOL!) I have a similar relationship with my husband, meaning that we are very close and still very much in love after 15 yrs of marriage. Unlike you, we were not blessed with children so we only have each other. I love being with my husband and I love doing things with him, but I must say where we differ is that I do spend time with my girlfriends away from my hubbie. Although I thought Ramona's reaction to the "all girl" dinner party was a bit over the top, I thought Simon's attendance was out of place. Anyhow, in watching the show I think you should hang with Bethanny because she is the less judgmental of them all and although she tells it like it is, she is not "in your face" with hurtful comments like some of the others. I think you are the positive energy of the show. Oh, and I was thinking you might have gone to the Halloween party as Nicole Kidman. You could definitely pull that off girl! Hang in there with the biatches and stay true to yourself.
