Peggy talks about her daughters' modeling and explains why she was chatting with Vicki.

By Peggy Tanous

Here we are again. The weeks are flying by! I can't believe we are on the fifth episode.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

This was a fun episode for me! First off I was excited to have my breast surgery consult, as I have had mine in for over eighteen years, and it's time to change them out. Not to mention my left one had torn away from the muscle, so it was becoming a possible health issue. I love the doctor I chose, and as you could see, Micah always makes situations relaxed, light, and fun!

The next thing you see me doing is taking my precious babies to a modeling agency. Thank goodness my mom went with me to help out that day! Capri was at the stage where she just started walking, so she was all over the place. I got London with an agent when she was a few months old and now wanted to get Capri into the biz as well. I am definitely not a mom that would push something on my kids, but if they like it, I think it's a fun way to make money for them that they can put away for college and their first car! Micah and I are the type of parents that don't want to hand our kids everything on a silver platter. We want them to appreciate how hard you have to work for money and know how to make and manage their own money. The neat thing about the agency we went to is that it was my very first O.C. agency when I was only fifteen years old! As you could tell from the interview, the girls were a little wound up, and London didn't want to stand still for a picture. Since then, I have put the girls' auditioning on the back burner for now, as I think they are still a little young. We will see what happens down the road!

It was fun to see Tamra and Fernanda doing the photo shoot for NOH8! They are sexy girls and it's funny how they egg each other on. On the flip side, watching Tamra moving and throwing out her wedding glasses she shared with Simon was so sad. I couldn't imagine ever having to go through that. I really felt for her and know this past year has been very tough on her.

Vicki was in her element cooking and spending time with her family. She is a great mom and host! It was sad though because she made the comment that her kids are raised so now she just does what makes her happy, which is work. I think by this point you see she and Donn are past the point of getting their love tanks filled back up.

Gretchen is so sweet to surprise her mom and throw a great party for her parents' 40th anniversary. And how thoughtful to give up her old ring to get her mom a new one! What a great role model her parents are! I'm so lucky to have that same foundation. My parents hit 50 years this October! I am anxious to see how the party goes.

And finally on to the Botox party Alexis threw to introduce me to all the girls. Alexis did a great job, and it was a very nice event with great food and a beautiful view of the harbor. I didn't want to get Botox, because I get really red and welt up, not to mention I like to keep it to a minimum so as to still have some expression. I did love the neck and shoulder massage though! Everyone was very sweet, and I really hit it off with all the girls! Gretchen and I have hung out on several occasions now, and we get along really well, so I was disappointed you viewers saw a comment I said about her aura. I don't really even know about auras, and I didn't mean it in a negative way. Moving on, I had to laugh at Alexis' comment behind my back about me brown nosing Vicki and maybe being afraid of her. I never have and never will brown nose anyone. I am just a very outgoing person that talks to everyone and likes to find similarities or common interests with people I meet! I've been a host and spokes-model most my life, so I am always making conversation. Not to mention I wanted to get to know Vicki on my own experience and not be rude to her just because she and Alexis have had their issues. I think Alexis was just expecting me to be distant with Vicki because I'm her friend, but I'm a leader not a follower. Viewers saw me leave the party early, but what you didn't know was why. My sweet man took me to the John Mayer concert later that night! Because I left early I missed the mace scene in person, but I know Tamra was doing it to have fun, and I thought it was really funny when I saw it on camera. Overall I think it was a fun night with no drama!

Well that's it for this week's blog. Thanks for reading! Have a great week! Make sure to follow me on twitter @peggytanous, Facebook, and get health tips and products on my site at
