Wow! To celebrate our 100th episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County with a two-hour special was surreal. Based on my research, we are the only family that has been on the same reality show consistently for 100 episodes. CRAZY HUH?

Watching this has brought back some great memories of what my life was like in my early 40s. I started filming when I was 42, and just recently celebrated my 51st birthday. It's hard to sometimes comprehend that this little "trailer" we did in my backyard one afternoon turned into a reality show and air for 100 episodes! It's truly surreal. Where has the time gone?

The styles have changed, relationships have changed, kids have grown up, and we have lost contact with some of the original Housewives. Kimberly Bryant moved away after a couple of years and I haven't spoken to her in a long time. I know she moved to the Chicago area, but that's about it. I hope she is doing well.
