Episode 14: Bravotv.com's Editor discusses puppies at parties and ring size.

May 15, 20120

Hello dog and royalty lovers! It's a beautiful, "Simon"-tattoo free day in Orange County. Let's discuss exactly what it takes to have a Puppy Princess Party shall we?

Gone to the Dogs
Alexis has decided to throw the twins a "princess puppy party." This is a genre of parties that I think is sorely under represented. I don't hear enough about parties that combine these two wonderful things -- canines and classicism. I wonder if there was a rival "cats and princes" party down the street. At least that's an idea for their fifth birthday.

Anyway, once Alexis had been spray-tanned, the furniture had been moved, and all is in order, it's time for the big event. Alexis has rented several puppies for the affair, with promise to return them after the party -- a fact I'm sure her kids will weep openly about once the day ends.

But before that, the princesses arrive, the bell is rung, and Alexis tells the tale of her baby girls' entrance into the world.

It's not a fourth birthday party until Demerol is discussed. Now bring on the puppies! Adopt them if you wish! Take the puppy you've convinced your parents to adopt with you on the carriage ride.

The princess party was a sweet idea; however, the speech about what you went through to bring your twin daughters into the world was completely inappropriate. What were you hoping to get by telling that story?

I don't want to rain on the Princess Party, but I strongly disagree that having puppies there is a good idea. A puppy can be over a decade of responsibility and adopting one - especially with very little kids - should be much more carefully thought out.

And since I was brought up to say something kind, the carriage was sweet and the party wasn't a $60K extravaganza, ala the 4th b-day party put on by another So. Cal. housewife in a nearby, wealthy enclave.

I admire Alexis' party for her girls!! I would have loved that!!! But honestly, I don't remember my 4th birthday. She should have done something extravagant later on down the road. I did not like the part where she spoke about herself. Don't get me wrong, I'm sorry her and her husband had to go through that, but I didn't find it to be appropriate for that time.

About Slade, I would be so embarrassed if I were Gretchen. I am embarrassed for her. I know he loves her and I know he is broke, but did that question really have to come out?? Especially on air!?
