Operation Beaver Snatch

Drew talks about his rescue mission with Tara and his heartbreak over Cody.

Let's start off where we left off with my argument with Courtney. I honestly don't think Courtney was blindsided by me. She was aware of her actions at DIFFA, and she knew what she said about me at DIFFA. I don't confront people unless I have a reason. Courtney knew what she wad doing and ended up in my line of fire. Look, Courtney and I are like cats and dog. We will get into confrontations from time to time, and we tend to rub each other the wrong way. But in the long term we will probably still be friends.

I have to agree with Matt -- bringing a date to an event and having her flirt with someone else isn't respectful. I feel like Neill was totally inappropriate. OMG, I have to say that kiss was so awkward looking. 

I was brutally honest with Courtney at lunch. She was more excited about the fashion at DIFFA than the actual cause. DIFFA was a big honor. I like to do charity work under the radar, because I don't do it to seek acknowledgement. As for Courtney, the moment she saw me she was all buddy-buddy, but when Daylon showed up she disappeared on me. Seriously, I'm used to being shoved away like garbage. I honestly don't think Courtney was aware of the rejection and hurt I have experienced. 

Operation Beaver Snatch! (PS: I was sporting some clothes from my old Ed Hardy days.) I named it Operation Beaver Snatch to be playful. Clearly Tara does this all the time, because the girl has bolt cutters, gloves, and high heels in her car. You don't see many women in Dallas with items like that. The house we went to was not even close to being safe. The yard was filled with trash and rusty pieces of metal. I would never let Coco or even my half brothers play in the yard. 

As for Courtney's date with Mark, I have to say, if it doesn't work out, can I have him? 

Courtney I have to take your advice, exes are an example of what you don't need. The best line I have heard from the whole episode.

Dinner with Cody… His moving to New York was a shock. Every time things get going with him, something gets in the way. Having him leave was tough, because I do love him. My heart sank when I heard the news. Look, I don't want Cody to go to New York, but I can't tell him not to go. I know this means a lot to him. Going to school in New York is his dream. 

That is all I have for this week. TTYL! And don't forget to follow me on Twitter @drewginsburg.



A Beautiful Gas Station Dinner

Tara shares her thoughts on the dinner suprise and dishes on the Jody situation.

Well this is it! What a crazy, wonderful experience it's been. So many people from across the country have reached out to me with their rescue stories, and I couldn't be happier. That has truly been the highlight of Most Eligible Dallas for me. 

So here are my thoughts about this season's finale.

Ah, nothing spells romance like a beautiful gas station dinner, complete with the subtle mood lighting and constant buzzing noise from the neon Bud Light sign…ugh. After seeing my horrified expressions, you could probably guess that I'm not exactly accustomed to spending my Saturday nights in gas station.  Now, if we're "road-tripping" it, then I'm all in because I'd be in jeans and a baseball cap and dressed for the occasion…but not date night, come on!
Am I high maintenance?  Maybe a little, but I don't think I was out of line. I never would have imagined having a real date in the same place where I could fill up the tank and get a flat fixed.  Note to future boyfriends: please no surprises without telling me the proper dress code!

Now we can all let out a collective sigh…Matt and Courtney. Finally! All I can say is what took so long? I am so happy they finally took the first step toward a relationship. And how amazing was that kiss?  I have to admit, I may have done a little happy dance when I saw it. I love them both so much and I'm keeping my fingers crossed. If you've read my blog, then you know that Drew has a special place in my heart, and when his heart breaks, so does mine. I love you, Drew, but sometimes I just want to slap you. What were you thinking? I saw how hurt Cody was at dinner. The next time you're in love, I am going to keep you on a tight leash! So this is how it ends, Jody and I are no longer together. I jumped in with my whole heart, but I wouldn't have done it any other way.  Lesson learned -- invest in a background check! But to Jody's credit, he has been separated for two years. So I am single again…anyone know any great guys?
