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 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.

  • I am some what surprised that the two are friends. Over the years my respect for Vickie continues and if there is a friendship, it’s due to her not Alexis. I don’t like or respect Alexis! I am not even sure I’ll watch much this season because of my strong dislike of her. But to be fair, I have lost respect for Tamra as well. I believe she was a mean girl and bully in high school! The way she turned on Vickie all last season, shameful! Vickie helped her through some ” made for TV” bad times. Tamra at best is a fair-weather friend!

  • I am some what suprised. However, if the friendship is real it’s because of Vickie not Alexis. I have such a strong dislike for Alexis, that I doubt I will watch much of the new season. I have to say though, I don’t care much for Tamra either. I think at best she is a fair-weather friend. The way she turned on Vickie last season was shameful! All under the gist of not liking her boyfriend. Vickie helped her through some ” made for TV ” bad times. How soon that was all forgotten! And just for the record, I don’t trust Vickie’s boyfriend either. But thats no reason to throw her under the bus!
