Regretting Ragging on Vicki

Gretchen wishes she had kept her mouth about Vicki's surgery and thanks the fans for going on anther RHOC journey.

To all the amazing fans! It's great to be back and I can't believe it is Season 8 already! I hope you guys enjoy the journey I went on for Season 8, and I appreciate you guys allowing us in your living room every week.

It was wonderful to see Briana having her baby! What a wonderful gift and blessing from God. I'm so happy for her and Ryan. It's fun to see one of us become a grandmother as well. This show is definitely full circle.

It was a transition having Slade move from working out of the home to now working outside the home, five days a week for his new Radio Show: "Radio Slade." However, I, of course, was beyond excited for him and this great new opportunity! This radio opportunity came because of his comedy show; they were looking for a comedian that could host, entertain, and talk about pop culture. His show became the highest rated hour within just the first couple of weeks, which was super exciting. For more info go to RadioSlade.PodBean.com.

And, for all those making fun of me not being able to make coffee, I agree! I'm a dork, but the truth is I know how to make it, it had just been a while since I had done it and I forgot exactly how the machine worked. Slade always makes me the perfect cup so I wanted to do it the way he does it, and I also think I just missed him so I wanted an excuse to call him. LOL!

We launched the iGO Pink Collection last September to a huge response! The 57 boxes of inventory were supposed to be shipped to our offices in New York for fulfillment, but they were accidentally shipped to us, and therefore you see me up to my head swimming in orders and boxes! This collection was a limited collection of pieces and, as of last Monday when the show aired, we are almost sold out of everything. We only have a handful of iPad, passport, and iPhone clutches left. For many of you asking on Twitter the pink satchel you see me carrying has sold out completely. Unfortunately we do not have plans to go back into production of these since it was a limited collection -- but I will let you know if that changes.

As you can tell Tamra and I are still doing well and having tons of fun together. And NO dressing the same was not planned as you can see! When Tamra came over and referenced that Vicki had work done on her chin, the first thing that popped in my mind was a chin implant, because others in the group had that done by the same doctor. And it just came out, I had no idea she actually had it done!

Needless to say when Vicki showed up to the party I was shocked to see her face sooo swollen, and she had so much hair in her face I could barely tell it was her. I remember thinking why would she go get this work done? I did not feel like she needed it. However looking back, I feel bad that Tamra and I were making fun of it. It was not cool, and I wish I had just kept my mouth shut. It was just such a strange situation to be seeing someone obviously so different and swollen for the first time in months, it's a little bit of a shock and we didn't know how to deal with it at first.

As you can tell I don't like to see any friends fighting, so I encouraged Tamra to be nice and say hello and start the conversation with Vicki. Even though I know Vicki and her had a lot of crap that went on between them, I still wanted them to talk and try to work things out if they could. I hate to see friendships end if its not necessary.

Heather's clambake was beautiful and done to the nines! We had such a fun night! Slade was working so he was unable to be with me that night, but overall we had a fun and great night!

Next week the party gets heated, as Tamra and Vicki come face to face for the first time in months. Be sure to tune in!

Lastly I wanted to say thank you again to all the amazing fans who watch every week and love sharing our lives with us! You guys are the reason for our success! For anyone looking for my Gretchen Christine Collections you can go to GretchenChristine.com to find them.

Till next week, many blessings!
Xoxo

Shannon Settles the Score

If Andy's asking "What's the score, Shannon Beador?" Shannon thinks she's definitely won.

This is Blog #20, my last Blog for the season! The past year was been a wild ride for both me and for my family. I have come to many realizations about myself, made lifelong friends, experienced some tough moments, and embarked on a path to a more peaceful self. So to use Andy’s phrase, “What's the score, Shannon Beador?” I would say without a doubt that I have definitely won.

I am happy that the viewers got a little glimpse into my sometimes unconventional ways! For me, it's all about good energy. I love that Vicki’s business has clearly benefited from trying feng shui with Elaine Wright. If you can't get hurt, there is no reason to try anything holistic. If you actually benefit, why wouldn't anyone want to go the natural way? If my children tend to feel better after seeing Dr. Moon and not have to take antibiotics, then I am a happy mom. It's all about creating a healthy balance!

I am an open book and am often criticized for it, but I am who I am. I don't know many couples married for 13 years that have a perfect relationship. Everyone has ups and downs, and although it may be difficult and require effort, it is possible to move through it and make things better. I have said it many times in the season that divorce is not an option. I will always fight for my marriage and my family. It truly touches my heart that so many fans have been and continue to root for David and I. I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your positive comments! Thank you!

Do Tamra and Heather truly want to move forward and potentially develop a friendship with me? Only time will tell. But for now, I have amazing friends surrounding me, including Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek. And most importantly, I have been blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. That is where all of my energy is focused.

I will never forget this entire year, both the good and the bad, because each moment took me on the journey to where I am today. And today, I am in a phenomenal and happy place. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
