    I seem to remember a woman on the first OC season who had a good, self-deprecating sense of humor. She might have moved away because she was getting too many skin cancers in California. Anyone know who I mean?

    • Oh yes! Kimberly Bryant. She moved to Chicago because of her skin cancer issues.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Thanks. Doc. I don’t even remember what she looked like now. I just remember liking her because she was able to step back and look at the whole bunch of them and laugh about everything.

        • you’re welcome and yes for the short time she appeared, she was very easy going and likable.

  • TartLemon

    I liked Jeanna. She didn’t back down from Vicki’s snotty crap.

    • WestCoastFeed

      I liked her too. And was really sorry that she was married to that brute, Matt Keogh. I see she has stayed married to him. so I guess he is probably a better man than he showed himself to be on RHOC.

    • Same here! Happy Saturday TartLemon.

  • Marsbars09

    I really liked and missed DeShawn Snow. I’m glad to hear she’s doing well.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Was she the one who was moving into that mansion when the show began and was busy hiring a housekeeping staff? I didn’t stick with the first season very long because the arguments they were all getting into seemed so middle schoolish.

      • Marsbars09

        Yes. I don’t think the content of the show was Deshawn’s cup of tea, hence she is no longer on the show.

        • WestCoastFeed

          From what I remember of that first season, I don’t blame her.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Now, I am going to be jumped on for this. I liked Kelly Bensimon. I was not a regular NY viewer so I missed a lot of the interpersonal dynamics. But I could see why she was afraid of Bethenny and that acid tongue of hers.

    • Agreed…I liked Kelly too and don’t think she was crazy. I think she suffered an emotional breakdown on scary island. Bethenny is a bitch!

  • Birdie11

    Wow…this was fun. I read recently that Lynn’s daughters were involved in the porn industry. No big shock there.

    • I read that too and it’s so sad that Lynn and her hubby spoiled those girls and now look what they have to resort to in order to make a few bucks. Sad.

      • Birdie11

        It’s sad.. they were terrible parents. Ugh…it was upsetting, because you could just see something awful coming.

        • Yup just like in New Jersey with you know who.
