It was so thoughtful of Vicki to bring me that beautiful cross picture. I collect crosses, and this one is one of my favorites. I know just how busy Vicki is with her business and thought it was so nice of her to stop by on her lunch break. 

The text massages that Alexis sent me were a total exaggeration of what really happened. The first thing I thought was that she might be trying to create unnecessary drama for the sake of the camera. As you can see, she really doesn't have much going on in her life. I died laughing when she said the party cost her so much money and I ruined it... Since her plastic surgeon paid for it, and in return she gave him a national commercial. Like I have said in the past, I heard things that they were saying about me behind my back during the break up of my marriage. I did confront her a few times, and she always denied it. Kind of like how she denied she said she didn't like me when Gretchen called her out when they were at lunch with Peggy. I tried to put it behind me and film with her, but it was very difficult. I live in the real world and they... Well, let's just say they are more worried about keeping up the appearance of being Newport's finest.

FYI, I can't take credit for the Jesus barbie comment. David Gilmore, who owns www.prettyontheoutside.com writes a weekly blog about all the housewife shows, nicknamed her that and it just popped out of my mouth in the heat of things. 

I would never laugh at some one that has fallen on hard times. But these two are such hypocrites about everything. It is hard to sympathize with people that have screwed up priorities. When simon and I were struggling like many others, we did everything we could to hold on to the house. We turned in our fancy Mercedes and bought used cars for cash, we canceled the gardner, pool service, cut up credit cards, etc. We were honest about our financial struggles. We were not broke, but could no longer afford our past lifestyle, so we started drastically cutting back. Don't you think that is the practical thing to do? But what did they do...bought a Rolls Royce Phantom to save face!
