Hello, RHOC viewers! I can't believe it is already May. Spring is here!
This was a really fun episode to watch for me and Micah, because it showcases our dinner party! Every year we like to host a chef's wine paired dinner, and this year we invited all the 'Wives. We were lucky enough to have Susan Feniger and her business partner Mary Sue from Border Grill cook for us! You viewers only saw a small glimpse of our tasting with Susan, but the dinner party shows you all the delicious and creative dishes we came up with together to marry Micah's desire for a more formal steakhouse feel and Susan's Latin cuisine. I think all our guests were very happy. I know we were!
Before the party actually starts you see Micah working with our friend and florist Susan Lotter! Unfortunately you didn't get to meet her. She did such an amazing job with the flowers, vases with swimming fish, ivy wrapped chandeliers with hanging crystals, beautiful candles, and the table setting! You can check out her work at www.suziesbloombox.com. Between her creative work, the lighting, and the fireplace, I thought it was such a beautiful and romantic setting! Next you see me getting my makeup and hair done. My friend, Lori, has been doing my makeup for over ten years. We met on a job when I was modeling for Mercedes Benz, and she is now one of my best friends! She is an amazing make-up artist. Check her work out at www.gattusomakeup.com.
We also see Gretchen before the party getting her hair done, and Victor asking her about marrying Slade. I have to say Gretchen and Slade have a really cute chemistry, but I think Gretchen is being smart when it comes to marrying Slade. Marriage is work everyday, and life throws stress at us constantly, so each individual should have any problems or legal issues they may have worked out before entering into a marriage.
Now on to my guests arriving. When Alexis arrives and I ask her where Jim is, she got very defensive and annoyed. I really didn't know the reason Jim was not at our party, and we are on a TV show, so I had to ask where he was since you viewers would also be wondering. At first she said he was busy with work. I thought for him to not personally call me or Micah when we had all been friends for the past four years and have always come to each other's events was very rude. And to miss your so called good friends' event just because you don't like two guests coming is immature. Then later at the party Alexis changes her story and says he was out of town. What bothered me was the fact they knew about the dinner for over a month, and I've never known Jim to go out of town without Alexis, let alone have work on a Saturday night out of town. It was obvious they were not being honest. I was also annoyed because she brought her friend, or as she likes to call him, her assistant. At the table her assistant said Jim was at a client dinner. Get your stories straight people! Gretchen also brought her friend, and I didn't know either one of these people. Gretchen and Alexis could have come together, and I would have been happy to invite another couple!
