Peggy enjoyed her time in Texas, but wasn't too pleased with Alexis' behavior.

on May 16, 20110

Then we visited the bull pen. I was really disappointed I couldn't ride the bull, because my boobs were still healing. I've always wanted to ride a mechanical bull, and as I said before, when in Rome do as the Romans! I was proud of all the girls for jumping up on the bull and taking charge!

At the end of the adventure you see us coming back to the hotel in the limo. Alexis' lip comment just makes me laugh. Are we in grammar school? Why are you always competing or making jabs at me? Who cares who has bigger lips. I love full lips, and that is why I had my upper one enhanced, but it came across bitchy, judgmental, and rude. Who treats people this way? If she had just made it a cute joke, I would have laughed with her.

Back home we can see Tamra is going through a lot of heavy stuff. I felt so bad for her and know she did not want Simon arrested, but she had to protect herself and the kids. I don't really know Jeana, and maybe she thought she could help, but there was a better way she could have gone about it. Nobody can tell you what is right or wrong. We each perceive and handle situations the way we need to. Jeana's relationship with her husband was completely different than Tamra and Simon's, so she should have just been supportive. 

Only two more episodes. Went so fast! Have a great week, and I look forward to spending next Sunday with all of you again!

Hey Peggy

I'm a new fan of the show and it's fun watching you start out and get to know everyone. You're in that fortunate position where you can get on with everyone and make an effort to be neutral. I really do hope you do stay true to yourself, because you seem really nice, and it would be a shame if you changed gears for dramatic effect.

I love the list! I finally decided to stop compromising too, and stick to what I want, but it's so hard!! No-one's perfect... ;-)

Take care AP

Peggy, I love you! ..you have definitely been my favorite since Laurie. I love how free spirited you are and not one to be in all the drama even when someone tries to one up on you.

I love you and your husband, you have a beautiful home and amazing family. The party you had was so amazing, beautifully done, too bad the women couldn't act polite, what a shame. Stary true to yourself and classy. Dont let Alexis get to you, I cant stand her and her husband.

Peggy, you are a nice person, but im sure Alexis is feeling a little bit betrayed right now, as soon as you met Tamara, & Vikkie. You were all over them, I know your supposed to get to know people from the show. But you knew Alexis for 4 yrs before you met them, and all of a sudden your bff's with them? common peggy! It takes time to get to know someone you just met. If You watch the show, you'll see Tamara enjoying everyone elses pain, she is just mean!! If she your great friend, wat does that say about you!!

PEGGY, I AGREE WITH BETHSCC1975. DON'T THROW AWAY A RELATIONSHIP WITH ALEXIS OVER NEW ONE'S WITH VICKI AND TAMRA. VICKI AND TAMRA AREN'T A GOOD MIX-THEY FEED OFF OF SO MUCH NEGATIVITY AND THAT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE WHO YOU ARE. ALEXIS SEEMS TO BE STRUGGLING WITH ISSUES AS WELL THIS SEASON. IT MAY BE TOO LATE B/C THESE ARE ALL TAPED, BUT TRY TO MEND FENCES. YOU'RE BOTH GOOD PEOPLE.

You are a breath of fresh air Peggy! You are such a likeable person. I picked up Alexis being jealous and competitive with you from the very first show this season. I felt so bad for you when she made the nasty "lip" comment. I've been around enough girls just like her - making you look bad so she can feel better about herself. Almost makes you feel sorry for her. Almost! :)

Hi Peggy!

I think I have a new favorite housewife (You!!). Like Ms. Johnson said, I love the way you carry yourself. You have been so open and honest with all of us about your problems, and I have never heard you say anything against anyone that would cause problems. You seem very honest and just want to live your life with your husband and beautiful children, as well as to keep looking as FANTASTIC as you do. I think you and Tamra are the only ones I really watch the show for now, and you two and Vicki going out and talking is a definite plus. I can't wait to see more from you, and I'm so super happy you joined the show!

I totally agree. Peggy you are a likeable person and I am so glad to see someone as you on the show. You have a beautiful family. Looking forward to keeping up with you and your family.

You are a great addition to the show. It's so nice to someone be so real on the show. The show needs to remove some of the older housewives who are too desperate for attention. Keep it classy girl!

You and Vicki are def in the lead for remaining classy and not engaging in the drama of the other girls! Nice!

You are terrific and very classy. Stay out of the drama as you do now. Do nt let alexis bring you to that. I think that is what she is looking for. She is very jealous of you.

Peggy..I agree with the other two posts. You seem genuine and real. I admit, I was not real sure of you at first, but you have proved any nay-sayers wrong. I hope you and your family are stronger from all you have been through..and keep on...keeping on!

Good luck with this group. You seem like such a nice normal person. I realize that you have had a tough time with PPD and truly admire you for sharing your story with all of us. Alexis is really having a hard time with allowing you to share her spotlight. Continue to rise above it and keep taking the high road, you a so much better because of it.

Peggy....you've got to be one of my favorite housewives this season. You are such a classy gal, and I related to you quite a bit when you talked about having postpartum depression. I suffered horribly with postpartum depression (almost 16 years ago now). Keep being the classy gal that you are!

Peggy...you are so beautiful, down to earth, and sweet! I felt bad when Alexis kept interupting you and pouring stuff on peoples food and ruining it. Alexis was very self-centered & rude! I could tell you felt a little bit uncomfortable. I think Tamra is a better friend to you. I wish you and your beautiful family the best! God Bless! ;)

Peggy...you, your husband & children are simply fabulous & Alexis is not on the same level as you. Keep your head up...Bentley Gurl!

Peggy, so far I think you are a pretty cool addition to the show. I'm worried that you are trying so hard to fit in with Vicki and Tamara, that you are looking to find bad things about Alexis and the others. You and Alexis have history, but lighten up, quick looking for stupid problems that really don't matter. Stay away from Vicki and Tamara ..and just have a little fun!

Great tip on the list thing. I'll make a point of doing that:) You are actually an inspiration. You didn't settle, you took your time and waited for the right guy. I respect that and plan on doing the same thing (I'm 32). I hope that you and Alexis make up at some point. Every relationship goes through periods when you are close and periods where there is some distance. Time is the best healing agent, so don't close the book on her completely.

I think you are making up excuses to break up your friendship with Alexis. Maybe you think that you have to take a side on the show, with Gretchen´s team or Vicky´s team, and it is not true!! You have to be yourself, and breaking up a 4-years friendhip because of that, it is not worth it.

I can´t belive that you truly think Alexis is no longer your friend, just because his husband didn´t go to your party, or because you don´t see each other every week!!, because as I can see, I don´t think Alexis has been acting disloyal to you.

I just whish you won´t regret this later.....

Peggy, You are by far my favorite housewife out of the whole series. I'm a huge fan of the franchise and you are by far the most honorable one. I wish you and your family nothing but the best.

Hey Peggy! I'm so happy you are a part of the cast this year! You seem so sweet and like such a loyal friend. It's so obvious that you try not to gossip and form your own opinions about people. I think you handled the trip to Texas and Alex's comments with class. Good for you girl! I can't wait to see your friendship grow with Tamra and Vicki!

ms. johnson

I enjoy watching you and the way that you carry yourself. Unlike Alexis you don't have to tell everybody what you stand for or explain any thing that you do. You let your actions speak for you and carry yourself with class and as a woman or respect. Keep up the good work.

Peggy: you are a beautiful lady inside and out. You behave like a lady and Alexis is acting like a jealous child in the playground. You are handling her bad behavior better then most would, maybe since you haven't called her out on the comments she is going to keep slinging them. I am a fan and my thought is the scenerio might be Jim made a compliment about you and now she is seeing green-you were with him first. Bravo to you for not playing in her sand box!

Peggy, why so critical of Alexis. It was her first "girl" escapade and she was having fun! You take everything she says and twist it into something it is not. Why don't you lighten up and live and let live, have fun. It is not your place to judge, period!

You are probably my favorite of the season! I can't imagine how you must feel when you watch the show and realize how Alexis is behind your back when you thought she was a friend. Good luck to you and best wishes!

Hi Peggy! I could not believe how rude Alexis was to you! With friends like that you don't need enemies. I am so happy to hear that you, Vicki, and Tamra are so close. Its great to know that you have two strong, loyal friends in your corner. Ignore the green monster! Good luck to you and your family.

I find you to be so down to earth. You have a pure heart and it shows.

Alexia is not as smart as she thinks she is.

Love your attitude. I think your opening up about your PPD will help a lot of women when they see that even someone, who appears to have a perfect life, can suffer from this condition. Glad you found women to have a good time with-Vicki and Tamra are hilarious together, and know the differece between funny and just plain mean.
