Hello everyone. I hope you all are enjoying the summer. We've been in the Hamptons all week spending lots of quality time with Ally. The more time I spend with her the more I'll miss her when she goes back to school. Well, maybe? At least Bobby is giving her driving lessons. . .(I know...she still doesn't want to drive!) HA!
Mommy, Daddy and Aunt Cookie have been visiting along with my sister, Lisa. It's always so nice to have everyone together. Family is the most important thing to me. I can't wait for all of the kids (David, Jill, Baby Micah, Baby Lila, Jonathan, and Jennifer) to come out this weekend.
Watching tonight's episode was bittersweet. Though we all have our up and downs, I have truly come to respect and appreciate the people I have met on the show. I am so grateful to Shed Media and Bravo/NBC for giving me the experience of a lifetime. I have learned so much about myself, and I am grateful to all of you for the love and support you have shown my family and me. I am even grateful to those who don't always like me on the show, but spend their time writing blogs and posting comments. Without you caring about me, good or bad, we wouldn't have been on the show even this long. So I truly thank all of you for watching the show, reading our blogs and newsletters, and writing your own.
I was truly thrilled to witness LuAnn live her dream to sing, sing, and sing. Natalie Cole, a true music icon, was a fan of the show, and we are so grateful to her for spending our last night of Season 4 with us and performing.
What would we do without Ramona and her antics? Even I am not sure if she thought she was pregnant or not, but honestly it was so funny. Sonja and Ramona kept running to the bathroom. I kept saying, "Are you doing drugs in there?" Of course I knew they weren't, but I couldn't help it. It was truly so funny.
When I went to go check on what Sonja and Ramona were doing, I ran into Alex standing outside the bathroom. They didn't let her in. It really felt like they were excluding her. Imagine if two people who you thought were your closest friends were running around with a secret and not letting you in on it. I honestly felt badly for Alex. Is this foreshadowing of what's to come? Nobody sent her the memo to wear leopard either!
I can totally relate to Ramona's feelings. I too often regret not giving Allyson a brother or sister and feel Avery's pain. Ally is lucky to have three half-siblings and three step-siblings, but Avery doesn't have those relationships. If Ramona wants another baby, go for it! Is it too late? Only Mother Nature knows for sure -- but I saw the look of love in Ramona's eyes and I wanted her to be pregnant too. Sadly, she wasn't. Was it menopause? Maybe? I don't think finding out on the boat was the best idea. But hey, what's a Housewives show without drama right?
I want to end by also thanking everyone who helped make this the best season ever. Darren (Zarin), my manager, and Sarah Vitale, my assistant, I could not live without both of you or my family, who supported me every day. Special thanks to my cyber-assistant, Maggie, the Gingerettes, Team Jill Australia, and to every single one of you out there for all of your love and support this season.
