Jeana,Still miss seeing you on TV what are you doing now days.Your such a beautiful Lady with such a kind heart .Hope your doing great.Blessings
My economic situation was short term - real estate tanked and no one bought high-end homes from me. My fellow housewives have, for the most part, been pretty understanding and very supportive, as we are all dealing with the same issues. We have been honest about our situations so that people can learn about loan mod’s and short sales, and how to pick yourself up and get more jobs. My advice? Step outside the box. I was a person who couldn’t order a pizza as a child it was always, “You do it!" to my older brothers. I have taken toastmaster type classes with Chaz Bradley, my favorite chef and former motivational speaker with Tony Robbins, I am once again working closely with Duzoxin for weight management, and we are developing a line for major league baseball with my pro baseball player son, Shane. Pro sports have really strict guidelines for protein drinks. I am a spokesperson for Smooth Shapes for cellulite. The secret to sales is to find things you believe in and sell them. When I saw Dr Grant Steven’s picture in the United Airlines magazine talking about what a great product Smooth Shapes was for non-invasive cellulite work, I called him immediately. The rest is history, I am happy with my legs again, and I loved the product so much I now am one of the spokespeople for it.
All of us have been hurt with this economy; the men that have jobs are worried about job security, Vicki and I have had renters lose their jobs and have had renters in and out of our rental units. Reinvent yourself, get off your butt and get a job. I have no sympathy for people crying that aren’t working, or braggarts who say they have the only business untouched by the recession. It isn’t true baby - all have been hurt unless you own a pawnshop or you're a repo man. I love my repo man! He wanted to take one of my cars when I was behind, and we have formed a very funny friendship.
I am working hard to get everything back on track, knowing someday I will look back and laugh. My true friends have come out of the woodwork to help and be a part of the recovery process. We are all helping each other with referrals and even taking in friends for months at a time until they get on their feet. Colton never knows who he will run into in my kitchen and has given up thinking we are being robbed. Now it's, "Hi, I am Colton, you must be a friend of my mom's."
Jeana,Still miss seeing you on TV what are you doing now days.Your such a beautiful Lady with such a kind heart .Hope your doing great.Blessings
Jeana was the most real, mature, classy woman on RH. The others are too catty and clear-headed, their nonsense is stale. Jeana will be so missed.
Dear Jeana, I am sorry to hear that you are leaving the show. It won't be the same without you. I am not watching the show anymore since you left because everyone seems to be so catty with each other instead of being friends and keeping it real, like you did. You are a beautiful strong woman and things will sort themselves out in the end. I wish you well in your endeavors!
I am sorry to see you go and realize why you made your choice. You will be missed but I think you were a little rough on Vicki, She works hard and has controlled her sales even with a rough economy. She never delegated which has kept her in the positive. Life insurance is a "Hard Sell" when people are trying to pay there house payments and car notes... but my question is as well as you know Vicki why would you ever ask to borrow money from her? You know she would be calling daily to find out when you would pay her back.. and although your work ethics are much different did you learn anything from Vicki's constant reach for refferals? Seems to me if you would of taken anything from your freindship with Vicki(espically since she is so involved in finacially planning) She must of had some advice to you on saving for the down housing market.. It is a trend and happens every 15-20 years or so.. I wish you luck in your future endeavors and am glad to see the positive change in the way you and your children interact.
Going to miss you and your family on the show. I hope your future is full of the wonderful things you deserve. I really don't know how the show will work without the mama bear!
Jeana, you go girl, I cannot believe I watch this show but I must say it is interesting to watch you girls interact. You have always handled youself with complete grace and class. You above all are not two faced and anyone that knew the value of true friendship would value you as there friend and never question you that way. Good Luck and you will be just fine Linda
You will be missed on the show! You've been my favorite since the show began. I wish you the best with family, money, and dating! Thank you for keep your class and always taking the high road. You were a delight to watch.
Jeana, Best Wishes to you and your family!!!! You will be missed, you were the only one on the show that seemed normal and intouch with reality!!! Again You will be missed. From North Carolina with Love !!
Well hope this can get posted!!! Hey Jeana, Things are coming together for you, GREAT!!! I won't be watching any more! I need to get rid of toxic relationships.(Ha Ha) Hope Bravo has the good sense to give you your own show, or put you on" Million dollar Listing" !
Seems Bravo has gone "Jerry Springer " with a lot of their shows, too bad! Love you!
Jeana: I can't believe you are leaving - but I do want to wish you all the best - YOU TRULY DESERVE IT!!! You have been, from day 1 the one with the class, the one with all the honesty and all the loyalty!!! You are the sweetest person and it truly shows. You are a wonderful fan base and I think each of us would be your friends - while the others, especially Vicky would not have a true friend anywhere - she just does not get it - it is more important to have a true friend than a dollar. You say you love money, but in all actuality, your heart is what really shows in you, Jeana - it comes out when you smile, when you talk and just when you walk in a room, we can see it. You are truly special. Good luck always, to you and your family - always.
You are the "mama" and the grounding force of the whole show. WTF? Your situations and how you deal with them are the most real. I will miss your warranted snide comments along with your ability to step back and watch all the BS and not let it affect you, but also step up to the plate to stick up for others, deserving or not. My true hope is that you step up for yourself. Come on over to the "Real Housewives of the Midwest". We'll wash those kid's mouth out with soap and have "your" back girl. Your daughter seems pretty right on though, keep her close, she is your best friend. Just don't ever let a man or anyone define you. Love yourself, go with your got and always do the right thing. I am pulling for you. I am a bitch myself.
Jeana, I for one will miss you on the show. And I wish you the very best. You've always been one of my favorite housewives. It's obvious that your children love you very much, unlike you counterpart's children that think their mother is crazed. You've always been true to yourself and non judgmental and I appreciate that. I admire you for not buying in to the drama that Tamra and Vicki thrive on. Blessings!
Jeana I really thought you were the housewife with the most class. Watching will never be the same. I wish you all the best,you deserve it. I'm sad to see you go.
Jeana, Amazingly, the individual with the most integrity is leaving the show...that says alot for your character and the character of a couple of shallow, self-serving individuals that are left. You are an incredible Mom and the kind of person I would be proud to call a friend. Much success to you...Thanks for sharing your lives with the rest of us...
Jeana youre my favorite housewife, youre beautiful and so are your kids... is your youngest son single? I would marry him, he's gorgeous!! A little young for me because i'm 20 but i can work with that..
Jeana, I think you are the one with class. I couldn't survive one night with the other ones. Good luck with your life.
You go girl! You are the most valued housewife in my book! You stayed true to your values and your family...in the midwest you would be the ONE normal housewife. Love you and we're praying you have a successful future in business and love.
Jeana You are indeed a classy lady, your kindness and selflessness shined throughout every episode. You will be missed God bless you and your family
Jeana, I am not sure why I watch this show, but I always liked you. I hope you are doing ok!!!! A Fan in Michigan
Jeana u will be missed. You are the best. Vicki and Tamra needs to leave, Not u. I always enjoyed watching the show with Lori and You. Well she left and now you. That is so sad.
You have always been my favorite, original housewife. I think maybe this economic downturn has made you reconsider the relationships in your life, and, as much as I will miss you, think you are making the right decision in leaving. Time to focus on the art of living. Best wishes to you in all your endeavors!
Jeana, YOu will be sorely missed on Housewives of Orange County. I understand your financial situation, but the income from being on this show should assist you. Please change your mind and stay on the show. I know some of what has happened has had to drive you crazy, your husband leaving and not actually being there to support you and the kids from the get go, but you are strong, so please stick it out. I love those tops "Sky" tops - do you have any of the larger sized ones left? Laura
Jeana has always been my favorite Orange County housewife! She is sweet-natured, easy going, and beautiful on the inside and out! Please do not leave the show Jeana! We, the viewers need you on the show as a role model for the other housewives behavior! Good luck with your career- I know things will bounce back for you!
jenna i truly wish you the best of luck in all you do. its gonna suck not seeing you on the show i love your level head attitude. I pray your kids respect you more cause your a great mom and woman. god bless you and your family. you should be very proud of yourself!!
I'm going to so miss you, as you are a classy lady and have a very good heart and soul. I think you have wonderful children as well, they are ambitious, have great manners, you just have done a wonderful job in raising your children. I will miss you, but you know what is best for you and your family, and to be honest, I am getting so tired of how Vicki treats you (as a matter of fact, she pretty much treats people that they are not up to her standards, that she is all that, she is really starting to get on my nerves. I hope we will be able to blog to you at some point, to see how you are doing. Good luck to you and your family whatever ventures that you make for the best of YOU!!!!!
Happy Holidays to you and your wonderful family.
Catherine from Seattle
I'm so going to miss you. Jeana you have so much class and have raised 3 wonderful children. They are all so grounded. You allow them to seek their dreams and support with what they want to do in live. I just love you and your family, and everything is going to be OK. Good luck in all of your ventures, as you are very smart, and have a good head on your shoulders, as your children to.
Happy Holidays to you and your wonderful family.
Catherine from Seattle.
Jeana, Please do not leave the show. You are one of the only reality TV personalities that actually makes sense. You are classy, smart, strong, and decisive. You seem to pick and choose your battles well, while avoiding conflict with all of the other girls. I do hope your boys learn to appreciate you more and treasure you for the wonderful mother, friend, and provider that you are. Best wises to you. You will be missed :(
Jeana, I really love you out of all the house wives. I am sorry to hear that you are leaving. You brought class to the program. I wish it was Vicki leaving and not you.
Jeana we hate to see you go. It must be very hard living your life in public 24/7. Your children are all very smart, attractive and very much (your inspiration to keep going) your support system every mother needs when being a single parent. My father died of brain cancer in June and I was very impressed with the way you defended your friendship with Gretchen. No one can even imagine how painfull and heart breaking it is to watch someone you love die. You have alot of compassion and I know some Really Goood Gentleman is out there waiting for you to come along. I wish you all the best and hopefully you will be a big success in every thing you do. You were the main reason we watched. I will say I am glad Vicki is no longer such an influence in your life. Stay amazing and keep that beautiful heart of your. Forever your fan.
Jeanna- Have never participated in this type of blog before. But, wanted to wish you all the best as you go in another direction from The Housewives. You've added a class, common sense and kindness that your fellow cast members have rarely evinced. Certainly, these are the same attributes that will earn you and your family the a future of happiness and success. Again, best wishes Pat from Va.
Jeana, You were the best OC housewife. I am sad to see you go and I don't know if I will watch the show anymore. I think that Vicki isn't your friend and never was...I have a heart like you and if a friend is in need I am there! I'm glad that you didn't get money from her she would just back stab you. Good luck to you and your family. Who knows we could past each other on the streets in WI.
You are my favorite... You added class to the show and it broke my heart to see Gretchen torn down like that. I used to be an OC party girl with a rich jerk of a husband and I was in all kinds of trouble so I can relate to the both of you doubt I will watch anymore the other housewives are so angry it isn't fun like the first few seasons. Goddedd bless You and Your Family
I wish you would not leave the show. Don't you guys get paid for it??? You are such a happy camper, and poor Gretchen really needs you. I am with Kara, let Gretchen do what she wants want to and the only person she needs to answer to is God. (Gretchen get into some type of religion for your life is really lacking it) Anyway back to you. You know the real estate market moves up and down get out there and sell some low end homes. They are selling like hot cakes right now its a buyers market. Well may God bless you and your family and may he protect you always.
Your loving fan from Tucson
Did anyone know that Jeana was one of the hot zz top fairy godmothers to come and transform the nerd in the ZZ top legs video????Hot mama.
Hi Jeana, I'll truly miss you when you leave. You're the only one with a heart and soul.I hope your situation continues to improve. Stay healthy and love your family and true friends. You are a beautiful woman and deserve all the best!
Hey Jeana; I just Blogged Vickie to tell her that our Kickboxing class is going Skydiving (all solos)maybe she can come and watch some real women having fun. Anyway, we all love you. Stay strong. We all work out to be strong and powerful and enjoy each others company. If you are ever in Washington State look us up. You would love it. We want your son to come to the Mariners...Yee Haw. Hoping that Bravo will do a show on us, but, we would probably not have enough back biting for viewer enjoyment. We all get along and always talk about how cool you are and your attitude on life and your perspective. I guess that makes us all TOXIC TOO.
Jeana I agree with everyone else...you will be missed!
You know, I think it was when I learned you were the model and/or inspiration behind Nagel's famous artworks that I developed a deep liking for you. It was a connection. Not to mention your time as a PB Bunny...wow! And you still look great - especially since you lost what 175-180 lbs (speaking of your ex of course) LOL!
Know you have come a long way since last season, and you are doing a wonderful job moving forward. And all those scrificial sales you had to make...those things can be replaced!
I will definitely check out your new blog site!!
Take care and Wishing you and your family the Best of Everything the Future has to Offer!!!
Best of Luck,
Mona in NM!
I will really miss you. I have always been a fan since your ZZ Top days. Please know Alabama is crazy for our sharp dressed Jeana in the O.C.
Jeana Although the show lives on the drama, you brought a sense of gentleness, kindness and fun. You will be missed and I hope that you can "pop in" from time to time with an update without having to be involved in all the chaos. Watching someone on TV makes it seem as if you know them - but you make this very easy. You're beautiful and very cool. All the best!
Me & my wife love you on the show. You truly are the glue that holds the group together.. So sweet and understanding and patient.. Good luck on your endeavors. It's notgoing to be the same without you..
Jenna so sorry your going - you are the best one there; as another poster put it - I too fast forward when I see Vicki (Bravo get rid of her!).
Get your own show and I'll watch it!
YOU ARE MY FAVORITE HOUSEWIFE...GOTTA STOP WATCHING AND START WATCHING THE GIRLS IN ATLANTA...YOU MADE THE SHOW

I am happy for you that you have moved on in your life and are in a good place. YOU DESERVE IT! I wish you nothing but the best, babe!
I hate that Jeana is leaving. But I'm sure she is doing whats best for her. She is such a classy person. You will be missed on the show. I actually fast forward Vicki. Good luck to you and the Family.. If I can convince the hubby to move to the OC, I'll call you for a house.

I too am sad to see you go. You have such a forgiving heart. You've forgiven Vickie so many times. I was proud for the way you stood up for Gretchen and didn't buy into the bashing she is recieveing. I hope your new edevors bring you hope and happiness, the economy will tyr again soon then maybe you can go back to what you loved yet
I respect you to the fullest. I love your parenting skills and I'm glad to see you move on. As for Vicki, good riddens. I never understood your friendship b/c she is soo opposite you.
