What made everything crystal clear about Vicki was the 'behind the scenes' video from the cutting room floor of the reunion.. Vicki telling people not to say certain things about her while 'On Camera'..
And pretending to be so holier than everyone on every season except this last one. Tamra, sadly, seems to be a hypocrite too.. and I really like her - I just think when she hangs out with Vicki, she turns into this bad person. I liked her and Gretchen together - they were funny and cute and supportive of one another. I felt Gretchen is the only one of the wives Tamra could be herself around. Her making up with Alexis and Vicki after basically convincing Gretchen to dump them was the hypocritical part. Gretchen fell for it, I loved it when it was going on - but holding the knives for Vicki and Alexis to stab Gretchen with - very disappointing.
Yeah, I'm not crazy about Slade - actually never liked his personality from way back with Jo. But if I were in the situation, having Gretchen as a friend would be enough for me to put up with him. For crying out loud - you can't expect the others to be with a guy that loves biking as much as Eddie. I would love to see the four of them take a biking tour sometime. Or, Eddie and Slade biking while Gretchen and Tamra exercise by shopping! That would at least have been fun to watch.
How can Tamra trust Vicki after she not only disrespected her marriage to Simon(yes, she was right about him but still - I think Tamra is smart enough to have figured that out anyway), but disrespected her relationship with Eddie.
And, what kind of 'man-dar' does Vicki have after choosing a complete loser like Brooks? She may be smart, but she is dumb about relationships and I really think she could benefit from seeing a shrink. She might be bipolar of something - those mood swings are scary. She reminds me of the way my cat get jealous of my other cat - you see it in her eyes whenever the person she hates that week(and/or the person she thinks might take Tamra's attention away from HER) they dilate like a cat and her hair stands up on end, just like a cat or tiger getting ready to pounce on its prey or its enemy. Scary.
I would just give Tamra one more bit of advice. If she got all the 'dirt' on Gretchen from Vicki - who lives in a glass house herself - or even if she saw her sitting on someone's lap - Gretchen is worth believing or at least ignoring anything in her past. She is basically good, Vicki is basically evil. Alexis is not either - but is not interesting or fun either - although she is improving.
