My Last Whoo-hoo

Vicki Gunvalson reveals why she's not using her signature phrase next season!

I want to take this time to thank all of you dedicated viewers and "bloggers" for your support for this Season 3, and previous Seasons 1 and 2. You have made our show a success by your commitment and dedication to tune into us every Tuesday night and we appreciate it.

It is definitely NOT easy to expose your entire life's good and bad moments on television, and then to watch it several months later without feeling somewhat embarrassed, happy, or sad. I've learned a lot about myself and have vowed never to do the "Whoo-hoo" ever again — it's not a pretty sight seeing how much I did it on TV! Sometimes I got "caught in the moment," and the only thing that came to mind was to raise my arm above my head and scream ... "Whoo-hoo!" I realized it was much more fun to do than to see it and hear it! All and all, I have really enjoyed this journey of this chapter of my life and wouldn't change the experience for anything in the world.

Now that we are done filming and doing the publicity, I feel like it's my year to really take off with my business. I am excited for the plans I have made for 2008 with Coto Insurance. Currently we have over 3,389 people that inquired about becoming a licensed insurance agent, and I am forming a team to manage and train them. My "Internet Life Insurance Selling Made Easy" book is doing fabulously and I was just informed that I will be a featured article in the April magazine of Advisor Today, which is a national insurance magazine about my business and the passion I have for it. It is a great honor to be recognized in my industry as a successful business woman after 17 years of hard work. I am hopeful that I will continue to mentor other people and that I will be able to change their lives ...one agent at a time and one client at a time.

For you bath lovers, you must try the bath scents located under "Beauty" —  they are my favorite! Viewers and bloggers, thank you for your nice emails and kind words.

Adios for now.

Love, Vicki

Shannon Settles the Score

If Andy's asking "What's the score, Shannon Beador?" Shannon thinks she's definitely won.

This is Blog #20, my last Blog for the season! The past year was been a wild ride for both me and for my family. I have come to many realizations about myself, made lifelong friends, experienced some tough moments, and embarked on a path to a more peaceful self. So to use Andy’s phrase, “What's the score, Shannon Beador?” I would say without a doubt that I have definitely won.

I am happy that the viewers got a little glimpse into my sometimes unconventional ways! For me, it's all about good energy. I love that Vicki’s business has clearly benefited from trying feng shui with Elaine Wright. If you can't get hurt, there is no reason to try anything holistic. If you actually benefit, why wouldn't anyone want to go the natural way? If my children tend to feel better after seeing Dr. Moon and not have to take antibiotics, then I am a happy mom. It's all about creating a healthy balance!

I am an open book and am often criticized for it, but I am who I am. I don't know many couples married for 13 years that have a perfect relationship. Everyone has ups and downs, and although it may be difficult and require effort, it is possible to move through it and make things better. I have said it many times in the season that divorce is not an option. I will always fight for my marriage and my family. It truly touches my heart that so many fans have been and continue to root for David and I. I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your positive comments! Thank you!

Do Tamra and Heather truly want to move forward and potentially develop a friendship with me? Only time will tell. But for now, I have amazing friends surrounding me, including Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek. And most importantly, I have been blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. That is where all of my energy is focused.

I will never forget this entire year, both the good and the bad, because each moment took me on the journey to where I am today. And today, I am in a phenomenal and happy place. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
