I am so happy with the casting of the new girls this season. Though I hated to see Joyce go, and thought both she and Carlton deserved another season to settle in, these two just seem to fit. At least so far. This week, Eileen gives up some insight into her family life and what it’s like being married to Vincent Van Patten!
OMG! What am I wearing at our kids pool party?! It looks more like The Beverly Hillbillies than The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! Those kids scramble my brains and my fashion choices! Speaking of which, those adorable girls are Jesse’s cousins, Sophie, Maddie, Veronica, and Audrey, and my niece Devon. We adore them and we see them as often as possible. And of course our Wheaten, Charlotte (from Dog Whisperer fame).
The tennis extravaganza was hilarious! I love that Vinny was a professional tennis player. He’s actually taught me a lot. Not to mention we always win at playing doubles. When in doubt and we’re down a bit, I look to him and say, “Do something!” A couple great shots later, and we’ve won! The only bad thing about him being so good? He will always beat me. Always. Even if he’s sick as a dog and exhausted and crawling around the court. He will prevail.
Yeah, Vincent and I bicker sometimes. We’ve been married for almost 12 years, and we sometimes bug the crap out of each other! Especially when both of us are in between projects and we’re at home. All the time. Every day. For weeks.You get my drift. We do have to be careful not to let it get out of control. We’re both smart-asses, and sometimes we can go too far. But I adore my husband. He makes me laugh and we have a lot of fun together. I am so proud of his many accomplishments. He’s truly a remarkable human being. Great husband. Great father. Great man.
