Vicki Gunvalson shares why vacations strengthen her relationship with Donn.

Being on vacation is always a great time, and a European cruise will definitely help you to slow down. I would love to "slow down and smell the roses," as my mother would say. I am completely inspired to make changes in my life — however I don't see it happening for a few more years. I would love to one day sell my Coto home and have a home in Europe, California, and back in the Midwest. Life has completely swept me away again, but I am learning a lot about myself from doing this show and the changes I want to make in my life.


One of the things that people comment on lately is my work ethic. I got it from my father. He was an amazing role model, and wanted only the best for his family. I feel that in order to obtain the lifestyle I want, I need to contribute to it myself and not look for a handout from anyone else. I enjoy what I do for a living so it doesn't really feel like "hard work" at all. I think that is the success in life. Finding something you truly enjoy and them giving it your ALL. I had planned this trip for six months and ordered a stretch limo bus for our ride up to LAX which is over one hour long. I expected our trip to start our perfect with no stress. When I saw that small little minivan pull up, I actually thought it was a JOKE. When I found out it wasn't and they were contemplating sending it home, it made me very angry.
