I'm so happy to finally be a part of your household! I can't wait to hear what everyone thought about tonight's episode! I thought it was more interesting than the first one and not filled with squacky, petty arguments!
It was great to see Vicki in action with her company and really nice to see Briana finally making a work function! Vicki is a great mom, and you really see the nice relationship she has with Michael and Briana. I was dying laughing when Vicki was trying to play matchmaker! I love matchmaking and will probably be the same way with my girls! It is evident watching Vicki that she is in full force work mode while Don is in slow down mode, so that definitely must affect their relationship.
It was cute to see Gretchen and Slade going through their morning routine. But I don't know how he feels about her comment that he's her bitch. Even though she was being funny, I felt it was a little disrespectful and degrading to Slade.
I would have reacted the same way as Tamra when she looked at Eddie's old place where he lived with his ex wife. Weird. Good decision on her part to 86 that place! The workout and drink scene with Alexis was very interesting. They really are so different, but I agree with Tamra that Jim is a lot like Simon. My husband and I have both known Jim longer than Alexis has, and he is definitely someone that likes things his way. I am happy to see Tamra in a good place and in a happy relationship now!
In regards to Alexis and I, watching the episode made me frustrated at first because we were being typical mom's and catching up on what our kids have been doing and what milestones they have hit, but it looked like we were competing. That was not the case. After watching it however, I did realize that on our play date and throughout the show you will see that Alexis really does try to one up me a lot and continually make jabs at me. I thought it was funny that every time I made a comment about something my kids did, she would interject and say how her kid did it better or sooner. When I was asked in my interview why she was rude to me when I was excited to tell her I was now signing Capri to an agency, that was just the first thought that came to mind. I didn't know why she would act that way. If a friend was excited about something but I didn't share their same view, I would just not say anything in response. I would try to be a supportive friend. I was laughing while making that comment, it was not meant to be catty, that was not my intention. I love little James! He is so cute, and I have no doubt he would get signed by an agent and work in the entertainment industry. I always joke and say he is London's boyfriend! You have to be a friend to be treated like a friend, and unfortunately for me Alexis stopped acting like my friend. I thought I was joining a friend on the show and found out that was not the case. She had said so many mean and hurtful things to mutual friends of ours behind my back and never supported me getting on the show. She never wanted to film together and our whole dynamic changed. It was really tough on me and made filming with her almost uncomfortable at times. I don't hold grudges and will always care about her, but I don't think the friendship can ever be the same. We are different people and at different points in our lives. I am focusing on friendships that are more genuine with people closer to my age and that my husband and I can hang out with as couples!
In closing, I loved watching Micah and me at the shooting range! We always have so much fun together and like to do different things rather than just a typical dinner on date night. He is an amazing husband, and as you will see, is a complete hands on Daddy. I'm so lucky I have a man that lets me be me and is always game for anything!
It is extremely sad that it seems as though you are now all about Tamra and Vicki and completely against Alexis and Gretchen. It's hilarious to me when I scroll through these comments and see so many viewers write about how you are making a BAD move there -- THE VIEWERS DO NOT LIKE TAMRA OR VICKI. They are about as catty, backstabbing and annoying as it comes. Gretchen and Alexis are FUN, LIVELY, GENUINE and REAL women who seem extremely confident with themselves, their lives and the people in them. Tamra and Vicki are old bitter hags who have nothing better to do than to crucify other women. You are absolutely going to be one of the most hated newbies in this franchise if you continue to act the way that you have. You are choosing such a hilariously odd path for your first "appearances" in the world of reality television. Hopefully you will end up changing your mind.
Peggy, most of the time when a new girl joins one of these shows they take their time to feel everyone out and play it cool. It is extremely angering watching you because all that we've seen of you is you trying to appear better than your friend or you putting on a big production when the cameras are rolling. Yes, this is a reality show, and if THIS is how you act in the REAL world on a daily basis, than I have no clue who would want to be your friend. You seemed somewhat decent while shopping and eating dinner with Alexis and Gretchen, but the comments you would make to the cameras were terrible and extremely CATTY. You try stating that you think this show should be fun and want to avoid the catfights and petty bullshit, but look at what you've given the audience thus far........
Most enjoy Alexis because although she has very different views than any of the housewives on any of these Bravo shows, she is extremely kind and genuine. It is very hurtful to hear some of the things you've said about her, and I think many of us can agree that from what we as an audience have been given so far of you, you ABSOLUTELY appear to be the "bad friend" and the mean girl in your little situation. We were all given the idea that Alexis wanted you on this show and that is how you got this opportunity, and once those cameras started rolling, it is quite obvious that you ate it up and starting turning into a catty witch. I truly hope for your own sake and for everyone at home watching you that you start to show us a genuine side of yourself and somehow prove that you are a good person, or else I'm afraid you will continue to receive weeks and weeks worth of terribly negative feedback for the type of person that you appear to be through our television screens so far.
PS: I think it would be extremely wise of you to never make a terrible comment like that about a child again in the future. Who does that? Someone that is extremely insecure and has to always appear to be better than her peers.......if you're as confident and in love with yourself as we think, than you wouldn't feel the need to constantly one-up someone that seemed to be a great and loyal friend to you. Give it up, you're annoying when you speak and you need to eat a damn cheeseburger. Every piece of you appears overly fake, even more-so than other housewives, and that is saying a lot. Hopefully you can somehow make up for it in the future by showing us a better side of yourself and your family.
Peggy, I think you are super refreshing and delightful to watch! You are REAL and not fake like Alexis or Gretchen. So refreshing!!! I hope to see a lot more of you! Don't let the haters get you down! Ps. You're way hotter than Alexis!!
I feel the need to turn off the sound when you're on. Yikes, take a breath and stop playing the I can top that game.
Does anyone here know what car Peggy and her husband are driving. Looks like a hummer but then it looks like in the front a Ferrari symbol. Thanks
I think you are a fresh addition to the show AND you are actually a housewife. I wouldn't worry about Alexis. I think she is sick with jealousy. After all, her life is not at all like she portrayed last season. If viewers googled her they would see that her and Jimbo are a house of cards. I think her hurtful statements come straight from a place of jealousy. You actually have it all and with a younger man who is more like your best friend than an older man that is a dictator and is being sued and is filing for bankruptcy. In my opinion she married for money and the money is not actually there and she is finding that all out now. I agree with Tamra that their marriage won't work because I see her not putting up with all the grief as before as she isn't getting the lifestyle that it afforded her anymore.
Im confused, you and Alexis both claim the other was the cause of the strain on your friendship. You claim she is jealous of you for some reason and was talking behind your back and she says that you basically got the big head and started to act different when you got on the show.
Im almost convinced she is right, i mean come on look at the comment you made in the blog about jim being a person who like's it his way and he is controlling. You made it your mission to point out how you and your husband knew him before alexis and he has always been that way. Also your agreeing with tamra's ignorant comment about alexia and jim's marriage.
How do you even know alexis was talking behind your back. Someone might of told you that but that doesn't make it true, you should have confronted her about it instead of being catty and talking behind her back. I think your the bad friend in this situation.
All your doing is bragging on the episode and the comment about alexis son was just harsh wether you were laughing or not when you said it, it was mean. He is a child. Your obviously going to bring the drama this season i see, waiting for that....
Not sure about this one. Seems way too self-absorbed for me. Jury is out on her just yet. I have a feeling that everything she is saying about Alexis probably applies to her as well. And what is up with that absolutely ludicrous outfit while shooting guns? It was just too much for me to take - it screamed "It's my first chance to be on national television and I'm going to dress to the hilt!" It was so silly.
I've watched every episode, some several times (I never thought I'd do this!:) I have come to the conclusion that each individual lady has great strengths individually and weaknesses, as well. Doesn't that sound like real life? If you're looking at any of the women for perfection, you're going to be disappointed. I do find a curious chemical mix when they all get together - in nearly every scene alcohol is involved and that's never a good thing when the mouths start flapping. I've come to realize that, in order to keep viewers guessing and curious (just like right now!) Bravo astutely - shrewdly - recognizes that there's nothing more delicous than a female-on-female catfight to keep people repelled and fascinated at the same time. Like a shark eating a seal, we are disgusted - and salivating in curiosity simultaneously.
Piece of advise, stay away from Tamara and Vickie, they will chew you up and spit you out like yesterdays sunflower seeds. You are the new "lady" on the show and already you are starting with the catty remarks and back stabbing. You should really take a moment and look at yourself and determine why you think you need to do a show like this and why you feel that you need to act so shameful. I too, wish they would have brought back Jeanne. I miss her.
I honestly think this is the best show ever! I love watching these women and there drama filled lives...although I would like to see more of there daily lives rather than just bitching and fighting with each other CONSTANTLY! If everyone wasnt so consumed in competiting ALL THE TIME and try to one up one another you would have no drama...but then on the other hand not as many followers...I personally think Peggy is adorable she seems very real and down to earth
I like you. You seem fun & confidant in an understated way. LOVE the way you appreciate your man, too!
Actually, if it weren't for criminal gang members, South Central would be a safer place. Jeez, place the blame where it belongs, on the shoulders of the criminals who terrorize law abiding citizens, not on those they attack!!!!
I think Peggy's "protection" comment was sarcasm and a joke. It seemed pretty clear to me that her use of guns is recreational.
I think that you are a great addition to the show. Don't pay attention to the negative comments- everyone is entitled to their opinion, but that doesn't make them right!
Oh my goodness, simmer down, woman! You are playing it way too much for the cameras, hunny bunny... and it is annoying rather than entertaining. The fun of this show is the "fly-on-the-wall" aspect. You are putting on a show, playing a "role", and it is, yawn, boring. I can totally see what Alexis alludes to in her blog happening... someone got a big head...
I have to say I was SHOCKED by reading some of the comments posted on your blog. I almost felt like I was watching a completely different show. I think you are fantastic and seem very genuine! I loved the shooting scene with your husband (who is an absolute hottie....), as a Texas girl it was awesome to see. I am sad to hear that things have changed with your relationship with Alexis, but this season she reallys seems to have gotten the "big head" for her 15 minutes of fame! I hope you stay true to yourself, continue being a great mom and wife, and stay far away from the drama as possible! I wish you goodluck this season!! So glad to see you on here!!
I know you think your love of guns make you cool and different but in reality you realize they do represent violence. It is frightening how you seem to love shooting, do you realize that most of the violence in the united states is caused by the fact that people like you feel like you need your own guns for "fun" and to supposedly protect yourselves. You say don't judge a book by its cover but you are just another stereotypical self-centered orange county housewife with a gas-guzzling hummer that is oblivious what is going on in this world.
Wow! Your already getting bombarded with negative comments . I think your great so far and am always excited to get to "know" a new comer. Congrats to you and your family! ;)
After watching last night, I was so impressed about how clearly your daughter spoke at such a young age! Can you please tell us what educational materials you use with her? When I have children I can only hope they speak as well as she does!
Honestly.... do you hear yourself! Stop tring so hard to make an impression! I didnt think there could possibly be someone more clueless and shallow then Alexia! Have youever hard of humility! Do you know what it means to be a LADY?
I'd like to thank the rich suburban families like yours that have this overwhelming fear of everything outside the gates of their communities. That they have to own an arsenal of guns, from pistols to assault rifles to protect their "stuff". If it weren't for you guys and the fact that most guns used in inner city crimes were stolen from suburban neighborhoods. South Central might be a safer place.
When it goes down, unless your wearing a shoulder holster. You're probably not going to get the key to unlock the trigger lock, then put the clip in, then load a round in a chamber. If you do get all that done, you might end up in a firefight or have the gun taken from you by someone who just wanted to pawn your necklasses. Believe it or not, a house with a gun is more dangerous.
Here we go again.........another CATFIGHT waitin to happen! BRAVO, please give us JEANA K, we love her. This new one is just more of the same, she isn't realatable because she is cookie cutter like the others. There is officially NO balance to this cast!
I think you are a great addition to the show. And you are so real to agree with Tamara about Jim, because that is sooo true! It is so obvious Alexis is jealous of you. Keep keepin it real!!
Yes! I couldn't believe it! I thought that she meant to say that she had married for love and was happy that there was money, too, but that's not what she said! Admitting that money came first was very interesting...
what kind of car do you have? It looked like a tricked out hummer but different... Please let me know! it's driving me and my friends crazy!
I think it's funny that you enjoyed this episode better than the last. could it be that it was because YOU were in it? ha!
You are a great addition to the Real Housewives of Orange County! I also noticed that Alexis kept interjecting about her kids. But your kids are so CUTE...and you are right, your daughter is VERY articulate for her age. You seem like the picture perfect mom and wife! Plus, you have a smokin' hot husband! (Probably another reason Alexis is jealous of you!)
Funny - Did you guys catch her statement about marrying her husband for love v. money. She said she didn't just marry him for money....love also. Was that a slip of the tongue. Is she admitting she married him for money as well.
Sorry but I'd rather have Jeana K!!!! I can tell you will be just like Tamera and let this "fame" go to your head.
You don't seem to be a very good friend to Alexis. I don't blame her for not wanting to film with you, the camera ruins friendships. We can already see (in the commentary) you were saying rude things about her son not getting signed to an agent. How can you say these things about Alexis!?! This was a woman who was your supposed friend for FOUR years! If Jim is so horrible why would you be friends with him for 7+ years??
Ugh. I wish they would have brought back Jeanna instead of adding new cast members who seem rude and catty.
Everytime a new housewife joins the show they always try and show off way too much and it seems you are not an exception. Not a very good first impression of you but I guess we'll have to wait and see as the season progresses.
I think your are awsome... true definition of a hot housewife... you look like kind of like a porn star... you mention entertainment....not sure your history...but You are prettier then crooked nose Alexis by a long shot
I noticed that Alexis was trying to one up you also, i'm glad you saw that too. Best of luck watching this season along with all the viewers, i'm looking forard to more of your blogs! You seems to be real nice and write it how it is.
WELL, IF THAT WALK TO THE PARK AND THE CONVERSATION THAT ENSUED WASN'T COMPETITIVE, I'M NOT ALL TOGETHER SURE WHAT IT WAS? MY CHILD THIS...MY CHILD THAT...FROM POTTY TRAINING TO MODELING! UGH, SO PETTY AND BORING! THIS IS EXACTLY THE TYPE OF BEHAVIORS THAT DON'T MAKE UP A FRIENDSHIP. BUT, YOU'VE ALREADY ALLUDED TO THE FACT THAT THE FRIENDSHIP WILL PROBABLY BE THE SOURCE OF MORE DRAMA TO COME. THIS SHOW REVEALS WOMEN IN SUCH A NEGATIVE LIGHT! I WANTED TO GIVE IT A TRY OR TWO, BUT I'M DONE. VICKIE AND TAMRA ARE BOTH SO CRUEL, IT'S DIFFICULT TO WATCH THEM. GRETCHEN IS OUT THERE SOMEWHERE ON HER OWN BENIGN PLANET.... ALEXIS SPENDS ALL HER TIME EXPLAINING WHY/HOW HER WORLD IS NEAR PERFECT AND HER HUSBAND DOESN'T CONTROL HER. I THINK IT'S ALL JUST BECOME MORE OF THE SAME.... IF YOU WATCH SHOWS LIKE BETHENNY EVER AFTER, YOU END UP LAUGHING MORE THAN ANYTHING. I, FOR ONE, DON'T LIKE FEELING SUCH NEGATIVITY WHILE REPEATED BEHAVIORS DON'T CHANGE. YOU'LL BE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL OF THEIR NONSENSE. HOPE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU SIGNED UP FOR!
Wow -- one episode and already an issue ... sounds like what happens with Vicki when a new housewife joins the group. However, I think your observations are right on the mark about all the ladies. For someone who is supposed to be a servant of god, she's no mother theresa.
You are all over Tamra now. Just wait a little girlfriend, and see where that takes you. I can see you will stand by her even when she says all the mean stuff about Alexis. You have in a round-about way agreed that Alexis's marriage won't last. You should have kept quiet on that one!! Not good. I don't knw what to make of you, but if you are going to kiss Tamra's behind thruout the show, you will have a hard time with viewers!!
