In Response to RE: REAL HOUSEWIVES OF THE OC PREMIERS SUNDAY MARCH 6TH by nyadrn
It's difficult to know what people are doing, when they're off camera. I was surprised in the one recent episode, where Vickie broke down to Tamra in a restaurant, saying that Donn traveled weeks at a time. I don't think she ever mentioned that before, or he talked about it either .. it was always about Vickie traveling on business.
Maybe Vickie's her own worst enemy, because she seemed to go out of her way to make it look like she was "running the show" in her home .. also implying that she was the primary bread winner. Even if that was true, it can't be good for a relationship, to rub a partner's nose in that all the time. And if it wasn't true, then it certainly didn't help the marriage.
I do think that Vickie is in denial about her personality & how she comes across. Talk about micromanaging children who are adults or close to it! And when her son got upset when she just showed up at his frat house, wanting to be welcomed as "one of the guys"?! She's made a few comments that she knows she's a micromanager, but "that's just the way I am". No, if someone realizes they have behaviors that harm relationships, they are willing to get professional help to work on themselves .. not just say they can't change!
