Good Friends, Good Times

Tammy Knickerbocker and the wives let loose in San Diego!

By Tammy Knickerbocker


How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo Thursday, July 11 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

San Diego with the girls —  well, I can say that we all had a good time. It was really great getting to know Tamra and her crazy ways. She really is not so crazy in person and her day-to-day life. he is a great mom and wife and is learning her way through all the filming. The hotel was amazing — the service, the food, everything. We took carriage rides down the street. It just was a lot of good bonding time for all of us. We just let loose — no kids, boyfriends or husbands.

Wow, what can I say about Jeana and Vicki in the limo to San Diego? When you put Vicki and Jeana together and they discuss business something bound is to happen. They are both very competitive businesswomen but also good friends. The combination sometimes is fun and can be a bit out there. The fight about Vicki's house did get out of hand, and I was caught in the middle. I thought they were going to start killing each other, and trying to get a word into that arena is impossible, so I just sat there thinking, "You both are nuts!"


Jeana and I go way back, more than 19 years ago. Lindsey and Kara went to school together. Jeana has always been there for me as a friend. I remember one conversation we had when I found out my husband at the time (Lou Knickerbocker) was cheating on me. I told her that I was leaving and that I wanted my girls to know that when a man treats you terribly and gives you no respect you need to find a way to fix it or get out. I could not find a solution to our problem so I wanted to leave. Jeana told me to make sure and that he loves me, so basically just look the other way. Love sometimes is not enough, or enough for me. I respect her feelings and it really made me look at my situation, but it did not change my mind. It was nice to be able to talk to her even back over 15 years ago, and to still have that same friendship is rare. Friends are hard to come by, and I hope that I can now help her through her times with her husband. It is always difficult and I want the best for her, and I will support any decisions she makes.

As for Lindsey being an OC Angel — it has been a great experience for her. She has made a lot of friends, learned a lot about people, and how it may look like fun, but business is business. These girls are working hard and trying to promote the drink (which is the reason they were hired) in clubs, restaurants, and at special events. Sometimes it does seem that they are acting pretty crazy, but all and all they are doing a good job. The OC Energy drink has done very well with the help of the girls' promotions.
