5 Families to Spend Time with This Holiday Season
by Karen Green
Ah, the holidays. The celebrations. The joy. The food. The family time…oh, the family time. While the family time can be as joyful as the holiday itself, it can also be more complicated to negotiate than a turkey buffet in a crowded dining room.
Spending time with family means sharing love, laughter and stories, but all to often it can devolve into a mess of arguing, backstabbing, secret spilling and corporate takeovers. No? Well, maybe not in your family, but just take a look at these five families—spending some time with them this holiday season might just make an ugly sweater party at Aunt Patty’s seem downright blissful.
Spending time with the large, extended Westmoreland family, which includes a patriarch, six sons and countless others connected to the notorious Westmoreland ranch, promises any number of adventures. Consider this your front-row invitation to the steady, sexy shenanigans of this A-list family.
This old-money ranching family has seen its share of losses, gains, heartache and happiness. But for the many beneficiaries of the Bravo family fortune, life seems always to be a maze of people and problems to navigate before any prize can be had—especially when that prize is true love.
The suave, international Morrettis are businessman barons, experts in their fields and used to getting just what they want. They may pursue money and power with a calculating eye, but pursuing the women they want to share their life with will take a little more than desire. Can they find love in their personal life to match the success of their business life?
Good luck straightening out the branches of this tangled, tumultuous family tree, but if you do, you’ll be guaranteed an interesting time—to say the least. The Fortunes are an old Texas family with money, power and all the sexy, scandalous skeletons that live in giant, designer-clothing-filled, walk-in closets.
Like some of the other families featured here, there are many branches on the Colton family tree, but if you ever find yourself in Shadow Creek, maybe steer clear of anybody who has “Colton, Inc.” stamped on their business card. Trouble seems to follow the moneyed, mythical Coltons and anyone associated with them, as well. Consider yourself warned.
