Well this week's episode was pretty mellow for me. Not emotional, no drama, and no surgery! You see Micah and I go to dinner with Gretchen and Slade for the first time. We went to one of our favorite spots, Maestro's Oceanclub! We actually had a fun night, but it appeared more awkward. There was definitely some tension however, as they are getting really close to Jim and Alexis and Micah and I are getting really close to Tamra and Eddie. I did feel a little strange when we were talking about kids, because I didn't want Slade to feel like we were judging or prying. I don't care what rumors float around about people. If I don't see it first hand and it doesn't effect me, I don't give it a second thought!
It probably did seem strange to people that I was muscle testing Micah with Gretchen's lip glosses, but Micah is allergic to most beauty products, and I don't like to waste money on a product if it will affect him poorly. It is a very accurate and easy way to test someone on a product, medication, perfume, etc. To test someone you know, you simply put the product in question in one hand holding it tight and with the other hand you squeeze your thumb and forefinger together. If you are allergic the fingers will pull apart right away. It's really crazy.
Micah's BJ comment was funny. He was kidding, and that was certainly wishful thinking with a 21 month old at home! You viewers have not gotten to see a ton of Micah yet, but he jokes around a lot and is very witty. Sometimes he can shock people! I loved when Gretchen said if that was the case I needed way more bling on my fingers!
The ring conversation was funny too. I think when you first get engaged and married the ring is a big deal, but after awhile that wears off. For our one year anniversary Micah got me a simple antique band that I love! We didn't have kids yet, but I was hosting and modeling full time and didn't want to be flashy. Now with kids I think the only time I wear my main ring is date night (Sad as it is because Micah put a lot of time and energy into designing it)! When it's all said and done, it's the love that matters and not the material things, so I loved Slade's comment that Gretchen's $10 flower ring would be her ring!
Peggy you are so beautiful! And it is so obvious that for some reason Alexis feels the need to compete with you and constantly make comparisons, and I have never seen you even be concerned with it! I love watching a friendship between you and Tamra grow, she is my favorite and now you are too!
I love how you say that you and Tamera don't have time for petty non-sense but the entire time they showed you and her having drinks, all you did was talk poorly on Gretchen and Alexis.
Peggy you are such a breathe of fresh air. I like that you make your own judgements about people and Tamara has her off moments ( we all do) but she us really a nice person and I am glad to see you friends with her
Yeah, lets see how long this love affair with Tamra will last. I see you won't call her out on her B.S will you?
You may be nice.. but your the first cast member that i can't see fitting in at all... being close to Tamra.. maybe the greatest mistake of your life.. she's loyal TO NO ONE.. BUT FAME... Good luck
Peggy, I like that you are a leader and not a follower, like some others on the show! You seem to have your own opinion and are a strong person. Stay that way. Love your ring and your style! You are a breath of fresh air.
I love it that you are taking the classy road with all the comment Alexis post about you, I think that your personality fits so much better with Tamara and Viki Fun, and Real---no time for the petty remarks, thats an awesome view! Stay possitive,
Micah's comment was very funny, especially to those of us who are married and remember having little ones at home. There is NO time for any of that but if you find it, good for you!!!! You and Micah seem to have a great relationship.
Peggy, It seems like you have a pretty wonderful life and a great husband. I'm sure you also have great friends SO why are you friending Tamra? Just because you're both in your forties and have young loves doesn't mean you have to run with her. Every time they interview her by herself she says something so horrible or different from what she's talking to that person about that she's really become just nasty. Don't you have enough friends? Are you doing it just for "face-time" on the show? Seems you're taking sides a little too quickly and that's never good for anyone.
Tamra & you don't have the time or energy for petty things? The fact that Tamra is in the same sentence speaks volumes of where your behavior is heading.
Your husband's comments were funny and sounded a lot like something my husband would say. Some people need to lighten up and take a joke.
I'm so glad to see you showing people how to muscle test. I do that for lots of things and people think I'm crazy but I know that it works! I'm glad to see someone on tv sharing all the good things that can come from homeopathic remedies!
Just wait Peggy, your turn with Tamara is coming. It has happened to everyone else, It will happen to you too.
I think it's great that you understand Tamara and her personality. I totally get it as well! You guys just like to have a good time and Tamara's smart mouth is hilarious. If you understand it then you know that she can be brutally honest but will not get offended by it. The other girls except to Vicki are just too damn sensitive. Gretchen can dish it out but cant take it. You and Tamara are a great balance! Love you guys!
I was so glad to see you do muscle testing on TV. I hope you opened a lot of minds out there. My chiropractor does that for food and vitamins for me. I aslo do it for my dog. I am very holistic and know their is other alternative help out there. Energy healing is awesome too.
Peggy, loved your comment about material things do not matter. Marriage is in the heart not on the finger. My husband and I have been married 18 years and have known each other 21 years and I have a simple diamond ring and I am just as happy to have him. Peggy you have a beautiful family and God bless!
i am curious to know what supplements and herbs you give to your kids - you said before that they are never sick- mine are always sick it seems - help me out here- i have two boys 5 and 2 - i really want to get into the homiapathic thing
I think you are fabulous! I'm so happy you are on the show. As far as all the people critizing you about being friends with Tamra... who cares! I'm sure everyone has someone close to them that others don't always approve of!
Stay who you are... because you are great!! I love your relationship with Micah!
You seem sweet and willing to give everyone a chance before you form an opinion. Be careful! If you are going to try to stay neutral, then be careful about the things you say (or laugh at).
You are a great addition to the show and I think you and Tamara are who you are - honest and above board - all of you girls are great in their own ways and appeal to certain people not all people - I am definitly in the honest camp and not the sanctimonious one.
I like you, Peggy, but I like Alexis, too. Shame you two aren't friends anymore. Like most posters are saying....I'd be really careful about making Tamra your new BFF. She is not someone I'd want to be associated with and she will turn on you or you will start to become like her and I don't think Micah would like that very much.
It's nice to see you and Micah together. You seem to have a nice family life. Please stay focused on your marriage and kids. You are new on the show and already lost a friend in Alexis. Haven't you seen how Tamra has acted towards her "friends?" You are siding with the wrong people. I'm not defending Alexis because she has made comments I don't agree with at all. However, Tamra is not loyal. God bless!
I watched a repeat of this episode last night to see what some of these people are complaining about. When my husband and I are out with our friends having drinks one of them always makes a small joke that is a little embarrassing. SO WHAT?! We're friends. You have definitely not gotten sucked into Alexis competition - good for you. You have proved that you make your own decisions about people instead of believing gossip - good for you. If Tamra does or says something in the future that upsets you, you strike me as the sort of person that will call her on it. Until then - everyone should just back off. My goodness what busybodies everyone has become. You and your family are beautiful and healthy - enjoy.
I think it says a lot that you continue to write about the show without attacking anyone, while Alexis continually takes punches at you, Tamra, and Vicki in her blog every week.
@Lmarei - What show are you watching? We root for our favs obviously, but Peggy takes punches at Alexis every single show. None of them is really flying above the fray.
Peggy, I really like your attitude and your outlook on life. When I first saw you on the show, I thought you were a typical OC housewife: blonde hair, big boobs and no substance. Well I was wrong about the substance! I love your personality and you seem like a great role model for your kids. Go Peggy!
The "astrology thing" makes a lot of sense because, I, too, have many friends & my husband are Virgos (I'm a Taurus/Aries)
I have been watching the Houswives of the OC since the first episode. I'm a huge fan and I watch you ladies spend your money on clothes trips and dinner parties. Good for you guys if you have it spend it. Today I watched a documentary about homeless children in the OC it killed me inside. There is a foundation called Project Hope that help this children. The reason I'm bringing this up is because I would love to see you ladies do some good with your money and help these children. I myself would love to help if I could but unlike you ladies I'm not rich and I live all the way accross the country. To each there own what you do with your money and I don't judge but it would be nice to see some good come out of you ladies money and resources.
