Kimberly Bryant takes you behind-the-scenes of Vicki and Donn's Havasu trip.

on Dec 12, 2008

You don't see Vicki burning her green skirt and top after seeing it on television. (She is wearing them in the kitchen scene with Donn.) She couldn't wait until the Housewives Burning of Attire Ceremony we have planned for June after viewing all the episodes. You don't see the makers of Illuma, a new radio frequency wrinkle treatment, offering me some sessions to velvetize my "yucky 60-year-old neck." Actually, I think it looks an inelegant 92-year-old's in this episode. Check it out in the restaurant scene with Scott, it's truly awful. As a baby, Bianca use to tweak my neck when she was nursing. A dear friend, who was a physician, used to tell me to train Bianca to stop because it was breaking down the collagen. Whew, she wasn't kidding! I love the memory of her little hand, and my wrinkled neck is worth it. I will, however, let you know how the Illuma treatments work out. You don't see the crew showing up at my house after shooting Shane playing pool. They held a lively debate as to whether or not a 24-year-old with stepchildren counted as a "mom." What do you think? I'm fairly certain any of the crew would have labeled Jo anything she wanted to be around her. She is beautiful. You don't see that when Vicki and Donn were pulled over in Havasu, one of the policemen did not have his shirt on. He was quite the stud muffin and Vicki became giddy. She was giggling and trying not to reach out and touch him. Clearly the cameraman was male and missed this juicy bit. Also, he and the rest of the crew assumed the boat ride would be under two hours. After five hours of bouncing around they were sunburned and grateful for Vicki's picnic. We also don't get to see Donn's amazing tricks on the wake board. It was quite a sight.
