Tequila Makes her Clothes Fall Off. . .(to quote the title of Joe Nichols country music song ;)
St. Barths is truly one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. But as you saw, the flight is not for the faint at heart. I am really old hat at flying. Having worked in fashion as long as I have, you can only imagine the miles I have racked up on trips to Europe and Asia. What you didn't see on the show, for those of you who haven't been to St. Barths, is that the pilots actually turn off the engine and glide into the airport. If you like roller coasters, you will love this flight. If you don't, there is a 40 minute ferry from St. Maarten that I suggest you take!
Upon arrival we take the grand tour of this extraordinary house. It is so beautiful and we are all feeling so excited to be here. While Ramona makes it clear she will bunk in the master suite (with Sonja?!?) Carole and I decide to stay in the bungalows off the main house (and in hindsight I am so thankful we did). During the tour, I basically walk full speed into the glass wall! OUCH! I really bang up my nose (a hairline fracture actually), but at least I leave my mark. . .on the glass! LOL! And I think I start a trend, as you later see the hermit crab trying to "pull a Heather" of his own as he marches toward the glass himself. I chill horizontally with lots of ice and Advil as Ramona and Sonja warm up our bar situation and we all settle into our rooms, relax and start to get into island time.
That night, Carole hosts us all for dinner so we can settle into the staff and our home away from home. Believe it or not, the toaster oven conversation rears ups again! But I try not to take the bait and get too serious about it. I will always make myself available to talk with Sonja about her brand and the work we did together, but I soon realize this is neither the time or the setting.
Heather, you are my favorite! How smart you were not to invite Ramona to London, she always generates conflicts. Aviva was annoyed by those 2 idiots above and beyond, they don't even try to be cordial, I am so glad someone finally gave them definition
Heather, you and Carole are the only ones who seem to have made your money but real talents and not the tailcoats of other people. You are smart strong and powerful. I liked you from the beginning because even with Ramona telling you "you talk to much" you said with a smile "you too'". I look forward to seeing you on the screen and some of your one liners are great. Stick with Carole! Although the show has already completed the season I hope to continue to see you and Carole support one another.
I have to say that I wasn't much of a fan of yours in the beginning but I am impressed with how you handled yourself in tonight's episode. I was so tired of hearing how you didn't have a problem with Romano when you clearly did. So, to see you get along with her I was happy to see that. I hope to see you continue to grow and move forward with a positive attitude. Good Luck!
Heather, I really feel that you are genuinely the one on this show that is totally misread. You have a heart of gold. You are smart. You are fun. You have a great smile and the best part of you is that you are truly kind. I love you and Carole. Things in tonights episode really did get out of hand, but you and Carole were the only level headed ones. Good luck on this show, and with your family and great success to you in your business.
Heather, while I didn't like how you treated Ramona in the past, I think only you and Carole have nothing to apologize for tonight.
I really liked the way that you handled Aviva in tonight's episode. You were dead on when you said that after your terrible experiences with Ramona you just sucked it up for friends. That's the right attitude and I admire you for it.
thanks for your stalwart consistency - you make me glad i too am a brunette
...and you are starting to sound like the soothsayer of the bunch.
Heather, hey...you're still my favorite housewife!! Keep being you! I'm sure your nose is better by now!! I was feeling your pain. Love love love you!!
Heather when you hit that glass door I immediately grabbed my nose and flinched. I did the same thing last year on vacation and it hurt for days!!! Totally felt your pain there. Also want to congratulate you on not letting Ramona ruin your trip. She is such a wildcard, you just never know who she is going to get into it with. Re: LuAnn situation - you are a smart business woman so you should know the axiom "Avoid worry over that which you can not control". This is between LuAnn and Jacques and no one else. If Jacques calls you and asks you for your interpretation or recollection of the nights events then by all means answer him with your exact recollection but I would not offer commentary otherwise. But by all means do not "worry" about it.
I have to admit, I didn't quite care for you in the beginning, but as the season has unfolded, you definatley are growing on me. I love the way you get under Ramona's skin. It's hilarious the way you drive her crazy!! LOL!! I can't wait to see the episode where you tell Sonja off. It's nice to finally see someone stand up to those two ridiculous women & call them out on their bs.
Heather and Carole are the only sane people on this show, for goodness sake. Really! Even Aviva gets a little carried away and uptight about what's nice and not nice and what's 'excluding.' Everyone just needs to RELAX and live their lives! Heather is sane and normal. Carole is sane and normal. Ramona, Sonja, LuAnn....are loons. Aviva.....still a little too concerned about how everything looks to everyone else. Just a little. It's 'not nice.' But the most loony one is Ramona, for goodness sake. And the most questionable about background, for me, is Luann. WHO is she? Where did she come from? Where was she raised? What kind of name is LuAnn? Sounds like she's from Mississippi, or Texas or Alabama or something. Anyone know? Just......curious!
" I believe in character over celebrity, in accomplishment over image, and in solving problems instead of trying to cover them up." I know that you are most sincere as you make this statement. I am grateful that you are a Donate Life Ambassador like me, Heather -encouraging all to register as organ and tissue donors. I am the member of a donor family, as well as a six-organ transplant recipient myself. I am a retired professional educator -post transplant, so I have dedicated my time and life to volunteerism as a Donate Life Ambassador -always seeking opportunities to speak, educate, promote awareness, and register donors. God bless you and yours, Heather. I'm already a fan of your business page and sent you a message last week.
Heather - when you are with these women, find Carole and stick with her. She's the only other island of sanity. You are an impressive woman, please, you and carole have to help each other remain sane.
Glad you are finally seeing Lu's true colors but keep it simple - if nothing happened, there's no reason for you to cover it up - of someone asks, tell the truth. If she didn't think twice about bringing him "home", you shouldn't think twice about the position you're in.
Heather regardless of your any miles and old hat at whatever you have done in life you have a BI G Mouth! And you should have broken more walking into that door WHY create such a scene regarding Luann you should ave talked to her on your own you are not her momma she is an adult even a friend does not ave the authority to mingle in the choices made not even the pope You are not a friend
Housewifes supposed to talk about their feelings in their head interviews. If Heather felt uncomfortable about Luann’s behavior, she is allowed to express herself. Maybe she is the one who does not need “piece of paper” in order not to cheat. Some people are saying countess is not married and therefore she can have fling. I happen to disagree with them and agree with Heather. It was weird….
Love your cheerful disposition...even through terrible pain. You were put in an awkward situation by Lu. You and Carol knew she was lying about the Italian friends and she knew you knew it was a lie. There must not have been anything to lie about if she tried to get you up for a drink with them...so why did she lie? It wasn't your responsibility to protect her from her lies. You handled it well.
WHAT THE H-- DOES HOLA MEAN? or LOL for that matter? And the ever infamous sideways silly face. Is there a dictionary anywhere. Hep me pease!! I am loosing touch with reaity (TV). Thanks to the ever evervessent readers of these bogs.
glad that your'e okay. LOL @ marcia brady moment love your sense of humor and you kept it moving without being too dramatic
Aw Heather, now come on... as soon as I say you're my fav HW (you still are) BUT, why did you have to snitch Lu out like that. I thought you were different and above all that. You could have at least taken Lu to the side and said something. if that upset you so much. I didn't picture you as a prude but here we have it... not cool...
No one but Lu knows what went on and I don't care that the cameras and sounds are always on...that right there should have put the red light up.
Hi, Heather! Don't know if you have time for your blogs but I just received an invite to the Honors Gala. If finances won't allow me to attend, I just wanted to send my best wishes to you and your son! Dr. Thomas Schiano has been my physician for years and Dr. Emry was my transplant surgeon as well. Gosh, I hope I can make it to this wonderful evening. Enjoy!
You are a mean, catty high school girl! You say the meanest, most cutting things and you do it with that fake innocent smile on your face, the WORST type of girlfriend!
So sorry you got hurt. That was literally painful to watch. You handled it so well, without all the drama that would have accompanied some of the more er, emotional housewives.
You are the best! So glad to see a sane person on the show. Love how you handle unpleasant situations with style and class (whether or not money bought it). I truly enjoy how you handle Ramona. Now if some of your good characteristics could rub off on those three crazy ladies, it would make my day.
Heather you are great! About time someone puts Ramona in her place. I think Bravo got rid of the wrong housewives when they kept her!
I am still puzzled about why you are willing to hang out with these women. I would guess that your social sphere has shrunk because of the time you have to spend filming this. I would also guess that it is impossible to truly relax with these women, camera people, makeup people, etc. even if it is in a beautiful place. Is the money worth it?
You were so much more likable this episode; like when you are relaxing and enjoying yourself. Dreading Aviva's arrival; looks like you all were having a blast before she came.
Heather - You are such a good sport and easy going. I couldn't believe the knock your nose took and you kept your sense of humor. Wow! If it were RaMOANa, an ambulance would have been summoned. It's refreshing to see a housewife go on a trip sans mate and be mature and happy with her gal pals. You're absolutely fabulous!!!
Sonja is punishing you for doing her a favor. We are ALL over it. Move on. You threw LuAnn under the bus. If you were bothered why didn't you speak to LuAnn not the girls? You reminded me of a big tattle tale and it was the first time that I did not like you.
Heather you did nothing wrong. You told the truth. You heard what you heard, you saw what you saw. You didn't seak her out and do or say anything that was wrong. She admitted she lied in her blog! People who are getting on here saying malicious things towards you probably aren't pretty perfect themselves. I'm not either.
Heather you are so gracious and loyal. Ramona and Sonja are a joke, they're worse than screaming toddlers. I feel your pain!
@lee0513 As a new cast member, I just don' t understand why Heather insists on speaking unfavorable about Ramona behind her back.. smh... It just doesn't make for good TV to have someone as divisive as her on the show.
@Nightengale "Holla" is urban slang that is an exclamation of celebration. There are other definitions as well, such as a way of greeting. Heather has worked for some genuine urban music stars, so she has her bonifides.
"LOL" is online slang for "Laughing Out Loud." That one has been around since at least the mid-90s.
The sideways face is called an emoticon and it is a way of expressing emotion in a print-only environment like we have here. Usually seen in the form of a smile. : )
@Nightengale LOL! means Laugh Out Loud. And Holla is... kind of like a shout out. Hooray, Yay, Awesome, ...... I love Indian Spices.. Holla!
@penneyone Heather does not need a story line. She's just sitting back and watching all these other women, besides Carole acting crazy!! I'm sure she is lol inside!!
@Atram AMEN !!! Finally someone shares my sediments. We're all here to be entertained to have fun and laugh and look at TV. Heather is so mean, and she wants nothing to be genuine friends with the other girls. She's in it all for her business !
100% agree. Heather needs to get over her own ego.
@zocola She only discussed it with Carol and that was because Carol had heard LuAnn and someone else speaking French.
