Lauri Peterson

Lauri gives you an update on her life, ponders what to do with wedding rings after divorce, and wishes Tamra and Eddie the best.

on May 21, 20130

Hi everyone! I'VE MISSED YOU!!! Time has been moving at lightening speed since I left Housewives four years ago. Recently I've been finding that I have more time on my hands now that five of our seven children are adults. George and I are slowly drifting into a different phase of our lives and now find ourselves preparing to be empty nesters. We are more like spectators versus managers of our adult children as they carve out their own paths. With only two daughters at home, I have more time to goof off!

Over the past four years, I have occasionally run into the women, usually in shopping malls, but other than the cordial small talk, I really never got caught up with any of them. So, when I got an invitation from Tamra to help her pick out a wedding band for Eddie, I was really excited to catch up with her and hear about everything that I had missed out on over the past few years.

It was really good seeing Tamra and once we started chatting, it seemed like old times and nothing had changed. . .except for the fact that everything had changed! The last time that I spent with Tamra, she appeared happily married to Simon. Since that time she has gone through all these serious life-altering changes! So imagine how I felt when I walked into the jewelry store. Was I supposed to mention the past or just dive into the present?

You seem to want revenge without investigating the situation thoroughly!  You totally turned me off and I hope you do not return!  You did more damage than what you claim Vicki ever did!  Very disgusting what you did!

I use to think you we're the only one on the show with common sense and class. What happened? You said what you said about seeing Vicki in bed with a man and a woman knowing what the insinuation would be. Shame on you, not classy at all! I am not a Vicki fan, but definitely no longer a Laurie fan. Shame on you!

Oh my god you look like a real creep. You should have stayed home and taking up a hobby. It seems like you are a bit vengeful. Yikes you are not nice. And I don't even care for Vicky that much. You make her seem normal.

Don't mention the past, don't stop here, just keep moving forward and away from the show.  Bad storyline you have going.  It makes you look mean and the audience won't like that.

Lauri, Welcome back to Real Housewives!  You arrived just in time.

Thank you for revealing the truth about Vicky. I think you and Lydia

will get along really great. Tamra has really grown as a person

while you were gone.  Vicky however, - no growth -.

BTW, Congrats finding true love with George!

Your future is very bright.

Bravo you need to bring George's ex wife Gina on to explain what all of the viewers are wanting to know.  Now, Lauri, how would that feel?  You are just plain mean!

You keep saying how happily married you are ??  Happily married people with children don't have time for nonsense you involved yourself in.  Shame on you !! You need to take a long  hard look at yourself and figure out why you are so unhappy that you would want to hurt someone who helped you when you need it.

I don't get it.  Handsome, rich husband.  Children are happy young adults.  Why do you need to drag anyone through the mud like that!?!  Vickie is not one of my favorites, but that really seemed to be coming from left field.  You got some 'splaining to do, Lucy...

WOW!!!!!!    Were you even considering Vicki's children?  Why would you  spread such vile gossip across the country?  Even if it were true, it most certainly isn't kind and certainly not a good example to your children.  My memory is of Vicki giving you a job, and  countless hours listening to you vent constantly about your problems. Rather, you should have spent your extra time, not running to the playboy mansion, being on T.V, and travelling with your boyfriend.  You were given 3 wonderful children and they needed to be your focus...You will never get those years back and I'm sure you realize that now.  You owe her and her children an apology.

Why are you back? I am not a big Vicky fan but what you did last night was wrong! I always liked you because you SEEMED like you had class. Shame on you!!

Lauri, whatever possessed you to reveal those things? That sort of gossip is malicious and evil. I think you lost a lot of fans last night, myself included.

I didn't even know there was damaging information on George's family that Vicki leaked. (that they are right of Attila the Hun, that's common knowledge!) By bringing it up was very passive aggressive towards George and his family. I had no idea what you were talking about and now I'm dying to know what could she have said that was damaging? You are dredging it up all over again, so wonder what your agenda is in doing so.

Lauri-- always bad form to disparage a co-worker and to Gretchen of all people?  Now you have left us with a season full of snide Gretchen interviews.  There must be something missing in your personal life that you feel th need to tear another grandmother down.   Hope your return is short-lived.

Lauri, I cannot understand why you would say all of those things about Vicki on national tv...but then you say you need to talk to her before anyone else does after you just trashed her on TV? Unbelievable....it is none of your business and if things happened it the past keep it in the past...it just makes you look small minded and very petty. Please go back home, I don't think you add to anything to the show, all you have done is stir the pot and trash people.

Looks like your master plan to defame Vicki may have backfired! All you did is make yourself look really bad! Go away!!

wow..what a backstabbing friend you are..it is clear that you, Gretchen and Tamra have all teamed up together! It is so sad...shows your true character.  You left being well liked and now people are turning against you.  Hope it was worth it.

I'm sensing problems in Lauri's marriage and she wants to jump back into the show to make money... Definitely going about it in the wrong way.

That is so dreadful talking about someone like that in front of millions of people. Even if it happened everyone have secrets ( I'm sure you do) that they have a right not to be exposed to the whole world. Low low class.

OH Laurie.....it was quite clear on tonight's episode that you're back on camera just to take revenge on Vicki, by dredging-up dirt from her past! That is soooooo very low of you!!!!

 

By the way...........what Dr. screwed-up your top lip, as your entire top lip area is scarred horribly & looks deformed!!!!

Lauri, I've lost all respect for you.  I'm so disappointed to see the new you.  You are clearly not the person I thought you were. And, when Gretchen told you that she wasn't sure she could keep her mouth shut, you acted like "Oh geez."   Really?  You knew that Vicki would eventually find out what you had said about her.  The whole scene was just so ugly.  So disappointed!

Are you on here just because you have a vendetta to ruin Vicki's reputation and put her in such a bad light.  to be honest, your comments, whether true or not, are very malicious and vindictive and it speaks volumes of you - not Vicki! In the end, one thing we can say about Vicki is that she can be financially independent.  Can we say the same about you? I hope you are  not a regular on this show.

Wow, I see there are already posts re: what I wanted to say.... one question: was that a power play you dealt when you dished w/ Gretchen? Both of you need to get ahold of yourselves...not everyone who watches this show is stupid!

Way to plunge that knife into Vicki's back after you indicated you could not stand Tamra.  Classy, in fact.  BTW, how's that granddaughter of yours?  Inquiring minds want to know.

End her run on the show now, we don't need to hear about Lauri and her comments about Vicki sleeping with a woman.  Go away, last time I remember hearing about your son having a problem and your daughter was pretty bratty and disrespectful so why are you talking about other people.  GO AWAY....

Lauri, I really thought you added class and elegance when you were on originally.  I don't know what happened to the old Lauri, but it seems majority of the viewers want her back!  We don't like this catty, mean-spirited Lauri.   We're getting sick of all the bickering, backstabbing and cattiness.  Bring back class!

Bad form! Previously, you seemed like a kind and classy person, but joining Tamra to trash-talk Vicki was ugly.

Can you spell gold digger ?

I thought not, that's why you rely on men you aren't even interested in!

 @ESinAZ Oh c'mon WHO hasn't Vickie dragged through the mud just about every season??? When George came into the picture Vickie was oozing with jealousy towards Laurie!!

 @Kica the name calling has got to stop. Describe the behavior, don't label it. I am, at times, inconsistent. That is the human condition. If Vicky does some of the behaviors that she criticises in others, she is probably unaware of her doing nearly the same thing she criticises. Being a hypocrite is a purposeful behavior like the pharisees.  Do as I say, not as I  do. These labels are not helpful, and they fire the women up even more to be vicious to each other.

 @Zoeyg To be fair, if you have a past and you're on a reality show somebody will dredge it all up--if not a cast member, then a blogger or a fan. Everything comes out but what these women don't get is that it doesn't matter. We've all got something that would embarrass us if discussed on tv. I believe in redemption and second chances.I believe in 3rd and 4th chances or however many it takes a person to get their life on track. 

 

Dredging up someone's past for the sole purpose of embarrassing them says more about the person doing the exposing than it does about the one who is exposed.

@MzPrizz11 Very true. Gretchen and Lauri really overplayed their hands!

 @JenTeamTre yes not only that she gave her a job that put food on the table and this is how she repays her .Why not speak to Vicki in person face to face and i doubt thats the real issue because that's something old.She is trying to get back on the show wao is disgusting.

 @milosmom55 I think it was a disgusting comment because it was meant to foster homophobia. It's 2013, so even if it is true that Vicky was in bed with a woman, it's a non-starter and will backfire on you. How? Karma does it's work mysteriously.
