Twitter Party + Real Housewife Vicki Gunvalson = 61 minutes of fun

December comes around, and its time for us to throw our Holiday Twitter Party. Prizes, fun conversations and friendships built within 140 characters.

Like usual, we can’t wait for the party to start! What’s different this time around? Vicki Gunvalson from The Real Housewives of Orange County is joining the party!

Vicki Gunvalson Profile Pic

Vicki Gunvalson got in touch with YesVideo in interest of preserving a collection of her family videos. As a mother of two (now grown up) children, she had a collection of videotapes that grew with the age of her kids. First steps, birthdays, celebrations of Santa’s arrival on Christmas, school plays, and backyard family gatherings. Priceless memories of her family before reality television trended and the TV show spotlight of Real Housewives of Orange County.

Like any caring mother, Vicki wanted to preserve these irreplaceable memories. A short time after Vicki’s memories arrived at YesVideo’s office, Vicki’s video collection was ready for her to relive on DVD and online. From the result, a friendship was built & Vicki wanted to share some of these memories to her fans, while publicizing what YesVideo was able to do to her personal memories.

Enter the 2013 Holiday Twitter Party.

We informed Vicki on how we get together for our periodical Twitter Parties. One hour of discussing memories – past, present, future – and feel-good times. Intrigued as she was, she became the special guest for our 2013 Holiday Twitter Party.

The whole hour, she conversed along with the #Rememberwhen Twitter Party group. She revealed some personal stories that haven’t even been revealed on TValong with a few details that occur off-screen (like her 22 year-old Office Holiday Party tradition, or her favorite Christmas song).

But like any Twitter Party, the purpose it not to dive into people’s lives, but to converse and share common ground through stories & experiences. That’s exactly what occurred at this Twitter party, and having Vicki as a guest was pure icing on the cake. Vicki will continue to share some of her memories in the upcoming weeks. She’ll be sharing them on Twitter, as well as on YesVideo’s site – so stay tuned by following @vgunvalson, @yesvideo, and visit www.yesvideo.com/vickigunvalson to see the latest updates.

Hope to see you at the next Twitter Party. Happy Holidays!

When Brook Lee, Miss Universe 1997 comes to town – Twitter Party!

YesVideo had the pleasure to be welcomed by the company of Brook Lee, Miss Universe 1997, today. She toured the facility, met some of the staff, took some pictures, shook some hands, and shared many laughs. Come the tail end of the day, she was the special guest at today’s Twitter Party – where the theme was suitably centered around “Remember When” stardom moments.

Twitter Party With Olympic & World Champion Brandi Chastain

October 17 started off as just a normal Thursday, but come 5:00, Brandi Chastain showed up at YesVideo’s headquarters in Santa Clara to be the special guest for our October Throwback Thursday Twitter Party. No adult beverages were distributed, but without a doubt – it became happy hour at YesVideo.

For the next two hours, Brandi shared the stories behind some of the home memories she had transferred with YesVideo. Priceless personal bits of information that would be completely unknown to anybody but her. The story behind her “catch of the day” fishing picture – where she made deals with her Dad to clean the fish so she wouldn’t have to eat them (because like many kids, she hated fish!). The laughter (and slight humiliation) behind her Backyard Line Dancing Session – or “The Shuffle” – as she corrected. Stories even spanned through decades, as Brandi saw her Santa picture which sparked a memory that she still takes pictures with Santa to this day.

Then the clock struck 6:00, and the Twitter Party began. In the Tweet board, the #RememberWhen hashtag rained with Tweets from followers that came from every part of the country who joined in to reminisce about some great Fall memories. In the YesVideo office, it was an hour filled with countless laughs, reflections to memories from the Tweet board, and even a little competition for who had the “most awesome memory” to share.

In the end, the party taught us that roasted pumpkin seeds amazing, pumpkin carving can be fun, but some “end up looking like it was run over by a car” as @thorsname admitted, Fall landscapes are always beautiful, and that Hobo Pants are making a comeback – as Brandi proudly models.

Thank you, Brandi, for the visit & joining us at the Twitter Party. In simple words, it was a blast! We look forward to making some more #RememberWhen moments in the future.
