I am sorry I haven’t been blogging but it has been pouring here and I have been splashing in the puddles! We don't get a lot of rain here so when we do it is a celebration. My friends Keith and Trevor are still here visiting from Canada with their 5 dogs and there is never a dull moment. Thanks for all your Facebook and Bravo blogs questions about how my family and I are doing. Everyone is great. Shane just left for Scottsdale, he is anxious to start playing baseball. It is quiet here without him. Kara is back at UCLA and studying hard. Colton is ready to be done with high school and move on to college! He has it narrowed down to his Top 5. Real estate is picking up, I sell all price ranges so if you know anyone buying or selling give me a call or email.
Dating is strange after being on my own for so long. It seems the men I pick are geographically undesirable, what is wrong with me that I can't find someone within a 15 mile radius!? And do I do it on purpose? I am thinking of heading to a shrink to find out why I pick men who have jobs that keep them away from me. Why not persue a relationship with a normal 9-5 kind of guy who's home every night? The man I date now lives 70 miles away, and when he isn’t working he spends three months out of the country. Not fun at all - I am spoiled and don’t want to be alone. He also just replaced me with a motorcycle! Looks like it is back to the drawing board.
I haven’t been commenting on the last few episodes, because my mom always said, "Don’t say anything if you can’t say something nice." And there hasn’t been anything nice to write about. Seriously, this Saturday I have to shoot the Reunion Special with the five delightful women you see on your TV each week, and I don’t need them picking on me! So yes, fear is a big part of my not blogging. So here goes, if you must know or care what am I feeling as I watch the season unfold. I miss seeing my kids on TV every week, it was fun watching movies of my family and friends. I do not miss the mean spirited attacks that seem to be a big part of the season. My friends that I spend time with wouldn’t dream of behaving the way the girls have this season. Vicki did the right thing not spending time doing things that didn’t interest her. You can’t fake you are having fun if you aren’t an actor. Alexis seems to be fitting it nicely, I knew she could take care of herself! Jim doesn’t seem as controlling in real life as his does on TV. I was really uncomfortable watching Tamra and Simon’s relationship take a huge beating this season. I hope they can work things out, they have a lot at stake. The financial pressure people are under really doesn’t help.
Jeana, after this week's episode, I said to my husband, "Jeana did the right thing by leaving this season." I honestly cannot believe the women this season. I, probably like many other women, am very disappointed with their behavior. I for one, love hearing what you have to say!! Take care and keep up the blogging! We love ya Mama Jeana!! Kelli Ash
Miss you so much on the show. I bet Vicki misses you too. She now is finding out what a true friend is and is not! Come back Jeanna!
Hey Jeanna! Miss you like crazy!! The show needs you back....I think Vicki does too. She has probably just realized you were a true friend to her. COME BACK!!!
Can you please come back to the show. We will trade you for Vickie. She keeps saying she does not like drama but that is all she is. Please come back.
hi jeana...love to hear from on the blogs and miss seeing you!!!! i really hope you and vicki are friendly again..she has really tried her best to do a turn around and not sure what really went on between you two but it seems she needs a friend now..also you two are the only classy ladies from this newer cast...glad your family is doing well and can't wait to see you on the reunion!!!
We really miss you Jeana. There's something abnormal about everybody on the show this season, except Donn and Frank.
We miss you, Jeanna! But I certainly don't blame you for leaving the show. Aren't you so glad you aren't part of all the crazy drama?!
Your right on everything Jeana~Stay hidden as much as you can~The girls are just ripping each other apart~They'll be looking for someone new to attack real soon~in fact I suspect its Alexis's turn~ lmao I do have to say I miss your normal attitude to everything~I think your the most REAL housewife of OC~Love and miss you~Jeannette
Jeana, I really miss your presence on the show. You were so down to earth and saw the big picture. Your kids are great as are Vicki's. Thanks for keeping us updated.
Ive watched you since very first season. I was very sad to see you go. you seemed like the one to keep the peace and hold everyone together. I felt for you in your family situation (kids and husband). You deserve better in life. A wonderful man who see's only the best in you and loves you for being Jeana.Hang in there and im positive good things will come for you. I adore the relationship you have with your children. you keep it real which says alot for how they have all turned out. I congradulate you! it's not easy raising teens on your own. Which was obvious you did. So i'll leave you with this life can go by so fast so make sure it's worth watching! Keep it real luv ya girl and goodluck with all that life throws your way!
I am glad you have moved on but I do miss you on the show. But I disagree with you about Gretchen's actions. She was wrong to attack Lynne like that- not the other way around. Lynne had to be on the defense because Gretchen was out of line even if she says it was coming from a good place.
I miss you jeana! You added something to the show that cant be replaced. Hope you and your family continue to succeed in life. Thanks for entertaining me as long as you did.....I know at times it couldnt have been easy with these other ladies. Take care and god bless you and your family.
Jeana, I think you are awesome! You are real. That is all we at home can appreciate. I do miss seeing you on the show. You made it for me. I have not been watching the show since you left. Best wishes in your life, hope all is well with you.
Oh you are so missed! I wrote to you on Facebook as well and I'm so glad to see your blog today. Its the least dramatic, the happiest and best blog here and its a pleasure to read it! You seem to be doing so well, its easy to read in your words! I pray it continues and you and your family thrive, grow and prosper.
My husband and I were discussing the show this past weekend. Since you ended your affiliation to the show, we have not had any interest. You took the high road, and stayed out of the plastic drama. We can not imagine why anyone wants to appear and behave the way these ladies do weekly. It makes me very grateful to have much less, but soooo much more than any of the ladies on any of the Housewife shows.
Your a class act! we miss you, but we are glad you took a stand against compromising your integrity and being subjected to the stupidity that flys each week just for 15 minutes of fame!!
Boy i know i have missed you . Will i sill wach . How funny this is Nut-o .but you im so happy to see you and your kids are doing good . I know that the men thing it will come to you , When He is the right one . You will See . Good luck with all you are doing . I will look to see you on here .

You are so comforting and awesome...very laid back woman but knows how to take care of her self!! love it!!
Hey there, Miss Jeana!
It's so good to hear the "voice of reason"... I'm with the other fans... we miss you! I completely agree, no one should drink and film, especially Tamra!... LOL!
Jeana we miss you!!!!! Bless their hearts, but the show is so tacky this year. Wow. Hope all continues to go well for you and your family!
I miss you on the show! You were the best and the most down to earth. I hope all is well with you and the family. I was saddened to see how Vicki treated you when times got hard. True friends are there through all weathers. She didnt seem to do that.
Jeana, I will have to say that the show is very boring with out the original ladies. These girls have real issues, that I really don't care about. Get the gang back together and come back and keep me entertained. Some really strange people and men on the show now. I do hope Real Estate is going better for you and I hope that you and your kids are happy.
Jeana - I'm glad for you that you are not on the show this year - it is so ugly! Hard to turn away from, but nothing I would wish on a friend!! I'll just be there are great things in your future, keep up the blog so we can cheer for you:)
I wish you were back on the show but I totally get why you left. I am betting Vicki will probably leave soon too, the petty behavior is over the top this season. I miss the original cast. I liked feeling like although there was drama, there was also an underlying friendship between the women. I'm glad to hear you're doing well and dating! Yay! I hope you keep blogging!
Miss you alot, Jeanna. However, I am glad you are not on the show this season....what a fiasco. As a woman, it is sad to watch women who still are so submissive to their husbands.
succinctly, you truly are a lady. like attracts like, and water seeks its own level. even though your fans miss you, i don't know if you would be comfortable back on the show because the wives are curious and interesting but superficial.
this 15th February starts the Year of the Metal Tiger. i wish you great fortune!
Jeana it is so nice to hear that you are doing well. I have been a fan since day one and miss the old crew!! You need to grab Lauri, Tammy and Quinn and come back soon!!!! I miss all of you!!!
Please…Come back to the show. The first couple of seasons were very interesting; like a real life updated version of “Knots Landing.” Now the show could be called “Dysfunction Junction.” In baseball terms the “Real Housewives of OC” without you is like the Yankees without Derek Jeter.
Jeana, Good blog and great advice! This is my first season watching this show. Therefore, I don't know the history of the castmates. At this point, I can see why you ran from the turmoil. If Vicki is wise, she'll do the same. It's best to leave a sinking ship. From what I've seen, this is the Ship of Fools - they're constantly correcting each other, fighting and insulting each other. And that's just the men (supposedly arm candy). They are more gossipy than teenagers with their first phone.
Hi Jeanna! I'm Mormon and I loved your comment about us. I always think of this when I watch reality shows and drunk people make fools of themselves. Drinking and TV, driving or most anything don't mix at all. You were very smart to bow out of the show. It's just a huge hot mess now. It seems all the nice, mature women have left the show and we're left with the drama queens. It's sad to see how these women treat each other. Good job getting away from all of that. Mad respect for you. Check in often though so we know how you and your family are doing!
Hi Jeanna!! I have been watching the show since season 1 & I was so dissapointed to see you go.. I like many others think that have the most class. I NEVER saw you start any problems.. I wish you & your family all the best!!
P.S. I think you should have your very own show..:)
Jenna, I do miss watching you and your children. I am glad to hear you are doing well. Boy you stepped back from the kitchen just in a nic of time. The heat is really getting hot. I can not believe how the girls have nothing to do but to worry about what the other is doing. I would say the words "keeping up with the Jones" has their first name on wriiten on their foreheads. Good luck to you and your family.
