As for Megan's take on the "Angels," well ...if you have been watching, you heard it. She has some definite issues with her father's choices, especially in regards to his choice of executive assistant. Her method of expression may be somewhat explosive at times, but I have to admire her for having the courage to speak her mind. She does unfortunately have a precedent for her distrust of some of her father's choices. But Lou is a very strong-willed man and he's an adult and will do what he will do, whether Megan likes it or not. You might say resistance is futile. I think we have all come to learn that much.
I know that it must be hard to see bits and pieces of us on TV and try to put together this conundrum of personalities and pasts. The main thing I would say that we have in common as "housewives" is that we are all just productive women trying to live our lives and to be happy. The show has been enlightening for all of us. Many of us, after having had opportunity to analyze our lives a little bit on screen have also been inspired to branch out and pursue some of our creative projects and dreams. Lauri has her jewelry, Jeana and Vicki have been making available those shirts that everyone has been requesting and branching out into the travel business part time. Jo has her music of course. I've even had the opportunity recently to hear Slade's son Gavin sing from his MySpace page recording. I am so impressed with his talent! I wish everyone the best with their endeavors.
As for me, being a loan officer is still my bread-and-butter work. I am working my way back into product development, which I've always had a knack for. I really enjoy creating new products and concepts. Recently I have even begun work on a children's book and TV series concept. I am collaborating with a friend of mine, Dominique Mainon, who authored a very interesting book titled The Modern Amazons: Warrior Women On-Screen. She has done extensive studies on current themes of female action heroes in media, including children's programming, which fits in well with my desire to develop very dynamic, original characters for children to relate to. So we shall see what the future holds. I'm excited!
