Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! I am so beyond blessed to have the best parents in the world and the most loving, strong, and amazing Mother! She has taught me so many important lessons about life and how to deal with it. In regards to this show, she always reminds me that all I can do is be true to myself, because what really matters are the people that know my true heart, like my closest friends and family. I'm very blessed with some of the most amazing people in my life and some fabulous fans!

The winery and hotel were actually so beautiful, and overall it was a very nice weekend with all the girls! Not a lot of drama thankfully.

Tamra had voiced to me several times how frustrated she was with Vicki and her non-participation in the wine club, which once I was up in the wine country with them I got to see it firsthand. I actually felt bad for Tamra because I know she was putting a lot of energy into this company and her "business partner" was not pulling her weight. I know intimately how much work getting a new business off the ground is and how much time, energy, sweat, and tears it takes. However I was sad to see this business get in the way of a possible reconciliation between them. I have experienced this firsthand with friends and it's not fun. It all seems like a great idea in the beginning until one person feels like they are working more and then it just goes downhill from there.
