Love Matters

Peggy addressed Micah's comments about the secret to a happy marriage.

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!

After the dinner scene, you see Tamra and I meet for drinks. This was so much fun! Tamra and I just get along so well and really can be ourselves around each other. I think it's just that we are both in our forties now and don't have the time or energy for petty things. We also have so much in common! You will continue to see more of this throughout the season.

Tamra mentioned she was going to talk to Alexis about the mace incident, and I completely agreed that Tamra did it out of humor. Alexis was making far too big a deal over it. I thought it was nice of Tamra during their conversation to finally say, "OK if it upset you, I'm sorry," but then Alexis kept trying to talk about it more. It made for quite the interesting scene!

As for the scenes with Donn and Vicki, once again like I've said before, we really are seeing how unfortunately they have really grown apart and are not on the same path.

Well I don't have much else to say. Until we meet again!

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!
