I'm so excited to unveil Tamra and my new company, Wines by Wives, on tonight's episode. It's a concept that we talked about doing for several years, and finally launched it tonight with a formal party with all of our closest friends. We know that wine is a cocktail that many people enjoy, and we wanted to have a membership so our fans could share in our "favorite monthly selections." The best part of our new company is not only will you be able to enjoy our favorite wines of the month, but 10 percent of all the proceeds go to each of our chosen charities.

I thought it would be a perfect night at the Wines by Wives party to announce to my close friends that Briana eloped and is legally married. HOLY CRAP! Although I was still in somewhat of a state of shock that she was married, I wanted her to feel the joy of finally letting everyone else know. What Briana didn't know is that I flew my brother Billy (her favorite uncle) in to surprise her and find out that she just eloped. I think Briana was just as surprised that Billy came to see her as I was when she told me she eloped. I love surprises!

There was an uncomfortable moment this evening when both Mike and Briana met Brooks. I knew there would never be a good time, but felt tonight was just as good as any. Looking back, I wish they would have met without other people around, but somehow after several failed attempts we just couldn't make that happen.
