Ramona explains the differences between "Turtle Time" and LuAnn's music video.

on Jul 14, 2011

Hello again! As I am writing this, I am thinking how in just a few hours, I will be on a plane to Italy with Mario! We are going to Capri and Positano. These two places are the most romantic locations in the world to us. Romance here we come!!! One of my secrets to a great marriage is to spend quality time alone with your husband. You need time away from family and friends so you are just totally focused on each other.

I would like to thank everyone for their support and for contributing to my very successful HSN show last Friday! When I finished, I traveled from Tampa to Atlanta for two Ramona Pinot bottle signings. A portion of the proceeds from each signing were donated to the Women’s Resource to End Domestic Violence of Atlanta. Thank you to all who came out for the cause. We have now opened the state of Georgia and are in 27 states!!!

Now on to the episode. . .

I met LuAnn for lunch to tell her I couldn't be in her music video. Avery and I had discussed it and she felt it would be too embarrassing for her. I also felt that it wasn't something I wanted to do. I wasn't comfortable for myself or as a mother. You cannot compare having "turtle time" to a music video."Turtle Time" is in the privacy of your home or a place you have fun with your friends. It means cutting loose, having some Pinot Grigio and even dancing. Who doesn't like to dance and have fun (in privacy)? That's hardly the same as a music video that will be on the internet forever.

LuAnn kept getting very testy and defensive with me. I hate when she makes her digs. So, when she was being snarky again with her inference to my marriage and relationship with Avery and everything else, I gave it right back! I was not going to be bulldozed by her.
