I am going to say just maybe if Vicki had not made Brianna getting married all about how Vicki felt, her daughter would do the same about brooks.
I'm wondering what the real reason is that Brianna and her husband are living with Vicki. Mr. Brianna (can't remember his name) is in the military and they are given free housing, usually a better place for marrieds than singles. I'm thinking maybe the reason of one household is because he's due to be moved to another fort/base. Maybe she wants to have her baby near her mother or with a OB/GYN that she knows thru her nursing? Or maybe she's spoiled and wants that lifestyle? I don't know. I guess she gave up the apartment she had earlier, where she recovered from her surgery. It's possible that Vicki paid for that apartment but stopped once Brianna got married...Vicki is capable of doing such a controlling thing because she didn't like how Brianna got married.
I also think what Tamra said about Vicki in Cabo was true...only because I watched that part twice, the second time all I did was watch Vicki's face. She was totally lying when she denied it and her facial expressions showed it clearly.
My opinion about Vicki and Gretchen and their men: I'm sure both of them slept w/their respective guys while they were being deadbeat dads. Neither one strikes me as someone who's morals would prevent them from sleeping with a guy who's behaving badly....
They want what they want when they want it. Then later they posture about having values.
Just how long can Gretchen keep up the pretense of expecting Slade to clean up his act? Obviously, he has debt...a lot of debt........and he doesn't have a job. Still.
And I, for one, am completely fed up with this silly pile of garbage she's expecting me to buy....how many years now has this continued?
I remember being her age and thinking that IF I got married again, I would have expectations about the man and just "loving" him wasn't going to be enough. I needed to respect and admire him more.
How the heck did Brianna get so level-headed with a mother like Vicki?
Something about their body language seemed off to me while they sat together on the Reunion.
Sorry. Sometimes I can go on and on about these women and probably be quite a bore.
Seeing Brooks on the preview turned me off to watching that part. I have not watched it.....much easier on me to read the comments here.
Yes Dragonlady. That sounds right about the living situation. Vicky could have only requested that they live with her. And I do find Brianna to be very level headed.
I do not want to stomach more Brooks.
Slade really wants to be on tv; and being with Gretchen enables that. I do not find Slade to be very responsible......Is Gretchen and enabler or just very lackadaisacal?
I would think Brianna & Ryan are paying Vicky rent since Vicky said Donn is still living in the house because her mortgage is so high & she needs his paycheck. I am so sorry but am I the only person who thinks this is too weird??? So Donn has been cheating in Vicky for 20 years yet no one in "reality internet world" has picked-up on that fact yet within a few days it was all over the internet about Brooks????
Personally I know I couldn't stay married let alone live in a a home with a spouse that was cheating on me. Heck I kicked him out...unless they had an "open marriage". I guess if it were me I would short sell the house & move into the one the smaller one they bought from Jeanna. IMHO Vicky got in way over her head and expanded her insurance business (given her "celebrity" status) right at the beginning of a declining economy. Now she is stuck with the mortgage/rent in that building.
Am I crazy but why would you continue to involve yourself if the guy you were dating outed your daughter's pregnangy & wedding a few hours before her wedding??? He would have been so gone before the first note of Here Comes The Bride. Isn't it weird this guy's one business is HW gossip? I thought Vicky said she met him during an insurance convention? Brooks buys Vicky a fur coat, takes Michale & his friend to the Kentucky Derby, Brianna & Ryan to Mexico yet does not pay his child support?
Granted I have not seen this entire season, missed the 1st segment of this reunion but...WHAT AM I MISSING THAT THIS GUY IS SO DANG ATTRACTIVE TO VICKY???? HE SCREAMS SLEEZEBALL!!!
He does scream sleezeball. But he's giving Vicki attention when most other men are not interested, and she is the kind of woman who can't handle being alone. I said earlier that I think Vicki was keenly aware that Tamara met Eddie shortly after splitting with Simon, and that Jenna was dating shortly after splitting with Matt, and she did NOT want to be the woman who did not fall in love with a great man as soon as she got rid of her husband. It was pointed out earlier that Vicki talked about the fur coat in the past tense, so it was most likely on loan and not something Brooks bought for Vicki. They said in the reunion that he went with Vicki and Michael to the Kentucky Derby, but not that he TOOK them. They also said he went to Mexico with Vicki Brianna and Ryan, but not that he took them there. Since they went to the resort that Vicki's family has always gone to, I think it's safe to assume that it wasn't HIS trip. Bravo is owned by NBC, and since NBC broadcasts the Kentucky Derby, they often bring in some of the Bravo personalities to attend parties for the Derby. That's probably how they went there. I think all these luxurious things Brooks is associated with are him freeloading the oppotunties - not buying them instead of paying child support.
Speaking of trips, I wonder if Vicki ever goes to historical sites. Jello shots at Stonehenge, woo-hoo!
