My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Good things happen to people who leave these reality shows because they get their
    priorities right. Happy for Danielle, and good for her in admitting her mistakes and apologizing.. For all the regular commenters in these housewives blog who always just
    have nasty remarks and never positive… you know who you are, stop with the nasty
    personal comments already. Making general statements is ok, but when you make
    personal remarks about someone whom you don’t even know is classless!!

    Can anyone say publicity stunt….. She looks terrible in that photo above….. A woman like that who has been saying for many many years that she wants a wealthy man so she can live in a big house blah blah blah…. She has the morals and values of a street walker and the way she brought her entire sex life into conversation with her kids just makes my skin crawl…… This Joe Mastalta or whoever he is HAS to be a complete idiot,…..
