These past couple of weeks have been so crazy! As all of you busy moms out there know, the end of the school year is jam packed! Anyway, I am getting ready to head off to a Mother's Day Tea in Katarina's classroom and realized I hadn't written a blog. . .so here goes. . .
I thought Slade asking for Gretchen's hand in marriage was very sweet. I know he is close to G's parents. It was the appropriate thing to do. Scott had a lot of good comments about marriage and relationships. He seems like a smart man. Telling Slade he has to clean up his image and debt situation before moving forward was sound advice.
Gretchen and Tamra at lunch: I'm so glad that Tamra is branching out and opening a fitness studio. She is the daughter of a small business owner. I'm sure she will do well!
Gretchen talking about her relationship with Slade echoes her Dad's comments from the bike ride -- she is being thoughtful and smart about her future.
I enjoyed the drama free show. The family issues experienced by Vicki's family is pretty relatable. I do have a hard time viewing Brooks as authentic. He seems full of it but none of you can say anything out of respect for Vicki. It's pretty puke inducing. I can't figure out if he is an out and out opportunistic, or a moron because his platitudes are trite and cheesy.
You, and your hysterical husband are the best additions to RHWOOC! You remind me of my husband and myself so much. I appreciate your honestly, class and sense of good taste that you bring to the group. Hope you stay for a long while : )
You just had to throw in a dig at Alexis. Your blog was so "diplomatic" about all the crazy but then you threw in the late comment. Wow. Get over it.
Right on, Heather! Being late is a way of saying, "my time is more important than yours." Definitely rude.
Everyone looked beautiful. I was very nervous for Briana and Mike to meet Brooks...I don't like'em. He's smarmy and an opportunist. The whole, "I love your son and so on was inauthentic and insincere."
I look at Mr. 2% and see dollar signs in his eyes. I hope Vicki is careful especially for her children's sake.
Heather...j'dore you! *muah*
I start to like you and then you go and say something so mean.... Why do you dislike Alexis so much??? Give the poor girl a break!! It really makes you sound like a snob and sometimes a bully.
Heather, I am really, really, really, trying to like you, but you are making it very difficult, you come off as such a snob! We all understand that you are so polished and refined, (not to mention wealthy) but pull back a little will you! Your husband can be funny and likeable, but he seems snobby also. Stop trying so hard to impress the viewers, we get it.
YOur hubby acts like a "housewife". At first, when you talked about him not speaking to you for 2 weeks because you didnt want to do the show, i thought that had to be an exaggeration. I totally believe you now. You need to get him under control. It's embaressing to watch.
YOur hubby looked like a fool running to the table to toast with the other wives. He sure does love the camra and slade...
You have some serious animosity toward Alexis, and it shows way too clearly. What's the deal, girl? You obviously would not say anything to her face, it's all done behind her back for the camera or in your blog. That is pretty cowardly.
Love you Heather. You are a wonderful addition to this cast, and I enjoy watching you and Terry on screen. Have a wonderful Mother's Day.
Heather...I couldn't of said it better. You always seem to say what I am thinking. I am so happy you are on the show.
You are such a sweet person and a nice addition to the show. I hope you and your family have a great Mothers Day.
Heather - Excellent blog. I agreed with everything you had to say (did you read my mind??). I thought Brooks was just pushing too hard with Vicki's family.....but then again, maybe he was nervous and of course alcohol was there. I quite understand why all the yound people were shying away -- you have to let them come to you in their own time. Gretchen's Dad was spot on....if Gretchen marries Slade, then she could be on the hook also for his bills and such. Status quo for the time being is the way to go until all his things are cleared up. Despite Vicki's comments about needing big boobs...I think Tamra looks much better since she had the implants removed. Still a good figure, more natural. What is all the California obsession to have HUGE boobs? I'm sure you doctor husband will agree not all men think huge boobs are particularly attractive. What about great legs, a great personality, brains, etc. This last sentence covers you, doesn't it Heather? Again, great blog.
HEATHER- I always enjoy your blogs. You're smart, sensible and I almost always agree with you, though not about Brooks (I don't trust him at all!). I love watching you and Terry interact! He's very funny and sweet and I especially love watching your reactions to his jokes! Happy Mother's Day!
I have been a fan of yours since the beginning, but you are starting to be a bit too full of yourself. Sometimes class means humility and being the bigger person- no need to be so critical and catty with some of your comments.
Heather, You really do call it as you see it! How nice to encourage these women you are working with. As for Alexis, you are right it is rude and arrogant to be late. Happy Mother's Day!
Heather, you are amazing - total package- smart, funny, classy, etc. I love how you always tell what is true and right, and you don't beat around the bush. As a HUGE housewives fan, you are one of my favorites!! Please come to the Jersey Shore (you are probably thinking, "why would I want to do that? haha) and visit so I can meet you! : )
Heather, I like how you kept your blog clean and didn't take this opportunity to bash anyone. I am still on the fence about you, but with how you stay out of the drama and you give everyone the same opportunity to prove their worth etc to you. I like that.
I absolutely love you and your husband!! I think that your blog has a lot of good comments and I agree with you about being late. Don't listen to the haters who are drinking the 'Alexis Kool-Aide" She obviously has some issues and insecurities since she has to be so competitive all the time even with her supposed best friend Gretchen. To read in her blog that she not only contacted Fox 5 after Gretchen left a couple episodes ago but then to hear on WWHL that she had them create a contract promising that they did not do it nor would they do it, is absolutely ridiculous. Not only is that showing her insecurities but it is also validating what a terrible friend she really is to not only Gretchen but any other woman that she would be-friend. You are wise to keep your distance and I truly believe that you are a great judge of character! I agree with you about Brooks. When he was talking about Ryan and Mike it was very creepy the way he was talking and it definitely came across like he was trying too hard. I also feel for Briana because you could tell that the last thing that she wanted to do was meet Brooks at that time. I feel like Vicki was trying to almost get back at her for eloping which makes me uncomfortable. Vicki should have had her children meet Brooks in private if she knew that they were both so uncomfortable with the idea. I thought that was wrong on all parts and it just proved to be an awkward situation for everyone. No wonder Briana was rude to him, I would have been too! Again, I think that you are a great addition to the show this season and I do not think that you are being overly rude or mean to Alexis. She is really showing her true colors this season and they are not pretty colors. By the end of this season it seems like she is not going to have any friends with the way she has been behaving!! Hope that you have a great Mother's Day!
Heather... You have an amazing spirit and I really enjoy watching you every week because you always have something always postive to say. I am really glad that you came on the OC !! And, I to Hope That you have an amazing Mothers Day with your beauitful childern..
Heather, Nice blog, although you still manage to take a dig at Alexis. Well some things never change. In my opinion, maybe Allexis is always late because you and Tamra are always taking shots at her. So be nicer and maybe she will start showing up on time. Hey, who wants to hang around catty women. You have not been very nice to her at all. At least she did show up. Better late than never.
Heather- you are by far my new fave!!! You are real- love the comment about being on time. Your husband makes me laugh with is sense of timing. It seems as though you have a wonderful marriage. Happy Mother's Day!
I think you are a great addition to the show. Love the little sidebar explanations you give for your husbands behavior. Gotta love him too! So far you have been the voice of reason when everyone gets crazy. You live a life most of your viewers, and some of your co- stars, can only dream about. I listen every week to all these women poke jabs at each other over whatever endeavors they may be pursuing. With the exception of Vicki and yourself, where would any of them be if they were not on this show? I would think they would be more supportive of each other especially given the fact that Bravo can end their 15 minutes of fame, so to speak, at any time! Alexa is a cartoon character, Tamra is an attention -----, Gretchen is a barbie, and for what it's worth, Sarah is..... Uhh who is she? Nevertheless, I have to admit the evil side of me does enjoy watching them tear each other down!
Do you ever miss a chance to make a snide comment about Alexis? What happened to being 98% real? Definetely my least favorite Housewife!
Love, love, love you on the show!!! You are a breath of fresh air and such a positive person on the show!!
I've enjoyed watching you on the show this season, other than the comments about Alexis. It's tacky and childish. Your husband cracks me up! I'd love to see more of him.
Love you, love your husband more. He is such a great guy. You need to clone him. You are the best addition ever. And you guys are spot on with Alexis. Hope you are again next season.
Heather - thank you, thank you, thank you for being such a positive person. You are my favorite on this show and I love your outlook, your thoughtful insight and comments and YOU! :)
Your husband is priceless! I know you comment about how he makes such lame jokes, but he is really funny! Has me rolling everytime!!
Keep up with the class that you bring to the show without being snobby.. Love you and your husband.. Yes, You are right on the nose about Alexis.. She claims to be so much more than she is and can't back it up.. Phony in my book is what she is..
Thank you for being an authentic and NORMAL (well, as normal as one gets living in a multi-million dollar home and appearing on television) addition to this season. I think you are right on with your assessments of the other wives and your comments about Alexis are always hilariously true! I would actually be disappointed if you became friends with her because you are so much better than that white trash wannabe. You and Terry need your own spin-off series...Bu-Jews maybe???? LOL
You and terry are a very judgementel couple.leave the bellinos alone.you are not even a friend of theres.enough is enough.you are obsessed.it is creepie.BRAVO print for heather please.
Please take this into consideration. You might want to watch the last couple of years of housewives of Oc. You treat your husband a lot like Vicki treated Donn. Once Terry sees how disrespectful you are to him and how foolish you make him appear...he might not like it very much. It could be damaging to his practice for people to see how you treat him like a dumb dog- verbally slapping him down all the time. If he didn't have money, you wouldn't be around, is my guess. You treat him like he is an embarrassment or an idiot. Also, ever consider that Alexis might be late because she is trying to juggle the kiddos and get them ready for the sitter. Have a little compassion and please stop judging. Really, all it does it make you look bitter and catty.
Your blog was the only one I enjoyed reading. Succinct, positive (mostly - lol) and SO true! Nothing against Alexis, but being habitually late IS arrogant and disrespectful. It shouts "My time is more valuable." One of my pet peeves too.
Heather, you are a great addition to this cast... Although I tend to think you would fit in better on the BH wives. It is nice to see a woman my age on the shows, a REAL housewife, who possesses intelligence and maturity. It must be challenging, living in a sea of bottle blondes with big boobs. I don't know how you do it. Plus, Terry is successful, a great father, supportive husband with a fun sense of humor - which makes him the most attractive husband of all the HW series in my book. My husband is a doctor as well, and sometimes I wonder about what he sees for patients or nurses he works with. That's hard enough to rise above. I doubt I'd want him around the likes of Gretchen and Tamra, or the Pussycat Dolls! Clearly you are a very secure woman. I admire you. Wish I could ask your advice on how you do it.
You don't need me to tell you how lucky you are. You are the only housewife with whom I would trade places! Collette is just beautiful. Ironically, if I'd had a daughter, I would have named her Collette also.
Good luck staying your sophisticated self while hanging around this tacky crew. (Who uses the term "douche bag?" Gross!) Hope the white trash doesn't eventually bring you down to their level. Keep rising above!
You and your husband seem like such a great couple. Your kids are beautiful!! Happy Mother's Day! Love your positive energy
