Lizzie Rovsek is taking to her Bravo Blog to discuss this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Lizzie explains she wants to believe Vicki’s apology was genuine, and she hopes that Vicki is a good person. Lizzie says she wants to understand where Vicki is coming from and talks about expanding her family with baby #3.
Lizzie writes, “Ahhh, the joys of motherhood!! Tonight you saw Heather and I going on a play date with Coco and Preston. Preston was not a happy camper when we got to the park. My lil’ man had fallen asleep in the car and was not awake yet when we pulled up to the park. Luckily it only took about three minutes to adjust and start having fun with adorable little Coco.
I asked Heather for advice on Vicki because I was still wondering if she was genuine in her apology. There was a lot more to our conversation at the park. I am NOT in any way insulted that Vicki asked if I was Mexican. (My whole life people have asked me if I am Persian, Mexican, Spanish, Bulgarian, Columbian, Italian etc., I always take it as a compliment.) The insult was that she purposefully forgot my name and pretended like she never met me. And after saying to me that I “have ethnic things going on” in which I explained my heritage, she acted like that never happened. The insult was that she completely negated our previous conversations. She knew I was Italian.
I was perplexed if her apology was authentic, and I really wanted to resolve this silliness with Vicki and be on good terms. Heather seems to have her own issue with Vicki so I understand why she had a difficult time offering up a good hand of guidance. However, Heather did tell me that Vicki is a loyal friend, and I do believe that there is a good person with a big heart in Vicki. She just has to give me a chance to see it.
Heather and I started talking about our children and I explained that I want more! I absolutely love being a mom. I brought Coco a gift of girly stuff. It’s true, I love buying girl stuff and I am a true girly girl. I was the girly girl in my family and my sister, Becky, was the total tomboy. I always thought I would have a house full of little girls. Isn’t it funny how God gives us what we need and not necessarily what we want? I adore my boys and they have taught me the most precious things in life.
I definitely want more children. Baby No. 3 is a serious conversation in the Rovsek house. The only other question is timing. I want my kids to be close in age. I think we will start trying beginning of 2015. I have always wanted a little girl, but I have to be totally honest with you, I love being a mom to boys so much that I really get excited thinking about being a mom to three boys. I will leave it up to God. It’s all in his perfect timing anyway, if we are meant to have a boy, girl, twins or if the two we have is it! All we can really hope for is healthy children.
Later in the episode Danielle and I went to Shannon’s house for a makeup lesson. I was mostly excited to see Shannon’s gorgeous house I kept hearing so much about. Shannon has a beautiful house. When I made the remark about her daughter’s growing up and having boyfriends over I did not mean anything bad. I mean, there is a full-blown basketball court, movie theater, stage with drums and other musical instruments to rock out with, full gym and beautiful pool outside. I have a house full of boys and they would love a rock band stage and a basketball court. Heck, Christian didn’t want to leave her house either!
We started in on our makeup lesson and of course one of our big topics of discussion was the ongoing debacle between Shannon and Heather. I think I speak on behalf of everyone in the group: We just want these two to make up! I really think the two of them need to get together, without any of us around, and talk it out. Shannon doesn’t think that Heather likes her, and I think Heather is frustrated that she brought Shannon into the group and Shannon has very quickly become good friends with Vicki and Tamra. The situation between Shannon and Heather has really been escalating and if these two don’t work on a resolution I can really see this feud growing out of control.
You got to meet my sister Becky tonight!! I am the youngest of three. My brother, Matt, lives in Santa Monica and my sister lives on my street in Ladera Ranch. I walk back and forth to her house multiple times a day. My sister just had her third baby. She is such a good mom and I look up to her for everything. Becky is one of those moms that barely gains any weight while pregnant. I gained almost 60 pounds with Preston and actually 45 pounds with Kingston. When I am pregnant, I am all belly and boobs and I work out my entire pregnancy and eat really healthy. My doctor says that women’s bodies just do what they are going to do when they are pregnant. Luckily a lot of my weight was water and I lost it pretty quickly.
I always loved being pregnant but I have a hunch that being pregnant with baby No. 3 is going to be more work than my first two pregnancies. After all, I have two toddlers to chase around all the while running a company. I think as women we do feel unnecessary pressure to look good. For me, I am much happier if I feel healthy and in shape. My sister and I talked about this “mom job” thing. I live in Orange County and I have to tell you: some of the women I know and see, who have three-plus children, have the most banging bodies I have ever seen. I am a workout fanatic and I eat very healthy, however after having two kids I can’t get washboard abs if my life depended on it. I just wonder how some of these moms have better bodies than girls in their 20s. Is it the mom job? Listen, I don’t mean to discount that some women have insane bodies from working out, living healthy, and even great genetics. I just wonder sometimes… Don’t you?
I think tonightâ€™s episode was nice because it shows a lot of us with our families. It’s less drama with each other and more family time. I love my family and I am excited for you to meet more of them as the weeks roll on. Have a wonderful week! Happy June!!!”
