Vicki explains why she was so worried about Briana in Vegas.

on Apr 24, 2011

It was nice seeing Peggy on stage modeling and being the host for the event. I had no idea she was so comfortable on stage speaking with an audience like she did. It was nice seeing Micah and Eddie support Peggy and Tamra the way they did.

Briana going to Vegas always scares me. She is full of fun, and when she says she works hard and plays harder like her mom, it makes me smile. We are very similar and tend to trust everyone that they have our best interest at heart. The fact of the matter is there have been times when we have let our guard down, and that is when bad things have happened. When I said I wanted to put her in a box and take her out to go to work and see her friends, I meant it. That is exactly how I feel sometimes. I am a worrier, and I can't help it. Each and every time I go to Vegas whether it's with Briana or not, I see girls her age trusting other men that are going to take care of them, and my fear is that that they will take advantage of them in some way. When I told her the story of my brother being rufied, it was true. Last year he was in Vegas for my book signing, we went to bed and left Billy at the hotel bar. He was talking to a lady and bought her a drink, and the rest he does not remember. He woke up twelve hours later in his hotel room, stark naked, and his wallet including all his credit cards and $1,500 cash were stolen. I fear Briana being hurt or taken of advantage of, and if it can happen to my brother, it can happen to her.

I've got some fun travel plans coming up these next few weeks. Tuesday of this week, I head to Chicago for four days for an insurance conference and then Friday of this week my high school friend Tracy and I are going to Naples, Florida for four days and then from Naples I go to the Kentucky Derby for a week. I'm so excited as I've never been to the Kentucky Derby. I am going to be wearing some fabulous hats, and Michael Costello will be making one of my dresses. I'll be sure to post some pictures when I return.
