Episode 2

Wow. Can you say get Shorty... I mean Simon! WOW! Even Tamra got in a few shots. I felt like Donn back in Season 4. Normally the comments my wife made during her interviews would upset me. But this is TV, and it wouldn't be the same without the controversy. Tamra knows the real me, and that's all that matters.

Vicki seems like she is going after me this season in the first two episodes. I see a trend here. Attacking Tamra and me for supposedly sitting at home, doing nothing. Vicki knows I have another company besides the Tequila business, and a full-time job. I don’t have time to sit around. I kept my work away from the cameras because of past issues. My boss at the Mercedes-Benz store used to get threatening calls about employing someone on a show like RHOC. People are strange sometimes. So this year, I kept my job quiet from the viewers. And the funny thing is that Vicki is aware of my other job/company and also knows how hard I work. Hell, Donn has been to my office a few times for lunch this year. Whatever. Like I said, "you can’t change anyone but yourself." For the record, I don't think I'm always right. You can never learn or grow if you feel you know or have all the answers.

I also want to clarify that I’m not upset when Tamra leaves town, however I do miss her when she gone and can’t sleep very well. Is it just me, or is this season shaping up as "Simon the Terrible Control Freak Strikes the OC?" Yes, that's me. I control every move my wife makes, including all of the embarrassing moments from past seasons. All my idea. All those things she said about our private sex life. Mine too. I love to personally humiliate myself. It’s the masochism in me. Do the math people! I love my wife and kids, and do the best I can to protect them. If that's a crime, then I'm guilty.

Well, I hope I did OK for my first blog ever. This season should be a roller coaster ride. See you soon.
