Going to Chicago with Vicki was a blast. Our first night we stayed at the Blackstone, a Renaissance Hotel. It has so much history it has been a favorite of movie stars, rock stars, sports legends, royalty and Presidents since 1910. It was restored to its original grandeur, and lucky me got the Presidential Suite. The top floor, with two-story glass ceilings, I laid in bed and watched the clouds. My family room, dinning room and kitchen were only rivaled by the amazing bathroom with a TV in the mirror. Vicki had the bridal suite and it was beautiful too! Her friends and my old boyfriend, Ron Fajerstien, joined us. He brought pictures of his beautiful wife and daughter and he and his brother-in-law went with me to meet Vicki’s crew. A great time was had by all.
It is so fun to catch up with old friends. I lived in downtown Chicago and have such fond memories of Rush Street with my friends Melanie Neal and Stephanie Roberts. I lived in Chicago until I moved to California after I met a wonderful man at the Playboy Mansion in Chicago’s at Playboy'’s 25th Anniversary party.
I have met Tracy, Vicki’s best friend, before — she is one of Vicki’s closest friends. She is great and her husband was such a good sport to put up with us at the pizza place. Jeannie was a doll and I can see why she and Vicki are still close. Vicki loves her life, and boats and I don’t think going out on Lake Michigan would have the same appeal as Lake Havasu. It’s too cold! My bet is she will never leave California.
I was a my local minor ball park field here in Modesto, Ca. We're the Nuts and we played the visiting Stockton Ports. Who should I see play but your son, Shane Keough! Unfortunately he didn't have the best of games but it was really fun watching him play. He made a great catch on a pop fly out to left field. It took me by surprise to see his face and name pop up on our jumbotron. Made me think about how much I hope the OC girls will do another season. You're my favorite. Take care.
I grew up in Naperville, IL and I have been wondering if you had any nieces there? In the 80's I had a friend whose aunt has a resemblance to you.
Jeana, I love you on the show and you remind me a lot of my own mother. I see the same selfless nature and honest love for your children that my mom has. I grew up in a household where my father talked down to my mother so much that it became infectious and caused me and my brother's to display the same direspect towards my mother. I just want to encourage you to not let your children belittle you in any way. Don't allow them to follow in their father's footsteps by making you the skapegoat for their anger. Divorce makes kids resentful, but don't allow your kids to make you feel guilty for divorce in order to merit their unkind behavior towards you. If you somehow remedy this by reprimanding their bad behavior, you will save them from being verbally abusive towards their mates in the future. I'm sure the constant filming stresses them out, but it is no excuse to disrespect you. You are a jewel and Viking. You gave them the blessing of life. They need to honor you. Much love and support.
