    Also, what does everything think about Gretchen's statment that she ended up getting zero from Jeff, after he passed away? In last night's episode, she stated Jeff had left her 2 (or 2 and 1/2) million dollars in his Will, but his Estate had a 3 million dollar "deficit." It just seems funny that she's been reluctant up until this point to confirm specifics on what she did or did not receive from Jeff. Not that she owes anyone any explanation, but I just thought it was strange that she gave a definitive statement last night.
    Yes, I did see the commercial, and with the song on iTunes, commercials, cosmetics, Gretch can take care of herself. She probably is supporting Slimesock, but if it's ok w/her it's ok w/me. I think Jeff died about a year ago, and his estate may have taken months to wind down - all that time probably Gretch was hopeful she'd get big $$$. Wonder what happened to the fitness center Jeff bought for her a season or so ago? We hear nothing about it from Bravo.

    Thanks, Coco. With these boring classless clowns no wonder he threw in the towel? I keep hoping it will get better but it is so predictable and boring.

    It seems to me Vicki is using the show/Blog to promote her business, book, etc, and just riding out her time. I doubt she will be back if there is another season.

    Yawn.

    Who would have thought that Vicki's real name is 'Victory'? That's a first for me.

    Re: The Real Housewives of Orange County

    Tracy888 is right, but I'd like to add this coming from myself as a mother of a 20 year old, it's hard to face the reality that when your children become teens the control and influence you have over them has decreased. My son towers over me, but I still see him as the cute little boy running around in Barney underwear. I can only pray that everything that I've taught him, advised him on, just EVERTHING sticks with him. That's all that I can really do because when I'm not around the ultimate decision, right or wrong, is up to them and I pray that he makes the correct decisions. I'm really working on letting go... no... I'm really working on not freaking out so much, but it's hard. I can really feel for Lynn in this, but as for the disrespect? Again, I quote my mother and all other mothers in my family "I brought her into the world and I can take her out!"

    I just watched my DVR of last nights show. Whoa! If I had talked that way to my Mom like Alexa did to Lynne I wouldn't be alive typing this right now! That girl needs tough love badly. Don't take her shopping, don't give her any money, and take her cell phone away. And I think Gretchen means well, but she should keep her mouth shut if it's going to make Lynne freak out like she did. It's hard raising teenagers but you survive, that's life.
    I am liking Vicki and Don's relationship this season. Good for them.
    And there is nothing wrong with hard work and Vicki was right about saving money. Those kids should listen to her instead of making fun of her.
    Did anyone notice the poll about the husbands? Alexis' husband got like 9% or something like that. The guy is such a tool, I look away from my TV whenever he comes on.

    I have seen California sun dried raisins with better skin than these chicks. What skin that isn't sun dried is flash frozen like peas from Botox. The faces are not to be viewed in Hi def. Lynn's face was pulled back so far from her head she can barely move her head or face.:nono

    I am the same age as these women and I look 10 years younger than they do.

    What???? Victory?


    I thought it was weird that Gretchen mentioned the money that she didn't get from Jeff again. I think the interviews are done after filming so I wonder if that topic flowed but it was edited to fit different episodes and now makes her look like she talks about it a lot. It was just weird that she went into such detail.

When she gave Don his ring at their wedding she told him how many carats the ring was during the ceremony. Last night she actually counted the rows of diamonds and said she would have settled for 2 or 3 carats. It just seems wrong that she give him a ring but also wants to make sure he knows(and everyone watching) how big it was.
    I'm with you, 100%. She's tacky, tacky, tacky.

    I can't find the link but there was a published interview with her, maybe a year ago, where she said that her parents didn't think they could conceive and had adopted two children before she was born. They were finally able to conceive and the result was Vicki, whom they named "Victory"
