A Fairy-Tale Romance

Tara talks about the search for the picture-perfect relationship.

OK, I'm a bit of a hypocrite, I admit it. While I am the queen of giving great advice, I rarely take it. Regarding our relationships, I'm convinced we have some sort of chemical in our brains that blinds us from what everybody on the planet plainly sees. Sadly, I think we just want (more than anything) for our relationships to be a "love story" and not just a "story" or even worse -- a horror story. So when our hearts are involved, we just can't see the obvious, unlike our friends who are on the outside looking in and can see everything.    

My ex-fiancée and I are the best of friends. We have always been able to give each other wonderful advice about relationships. So Courtney and John clearly don't want me to be with Jody, I get it! But again, when my heart is involved, I just can't help it; I am diving in and I'm looking for the fairytale, storybook ending. Courtney and John, put down the red flags that you're waving in my face and just be happy for me.   

And how about Matt and Courtney as a perfect example of denying the truth? I love how Courtney sits poolside describing to Matt his perfect girl. Guess what? She's describing herself! I love it. I also love how Matt "Mr. I Don't Want A Relationship" can only think about Courtney on the biggest night of his life. Seriously you guys please just see what everyone else is seeing…YOU ARE PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER! You have a love that is based first on friendship, and what could be better than that? Please just go for it. 

Drew, my love, you have to look at what happened. You know I always have your back, but this time I don't know why you did what you did. You love Cody, so why kiss someone else right in front of him? You cannot rationalize what happened. I think you were trying to sabotage the relationship because Cody was leaving for N.Y. 

Glenn and Rebecca are the most incredible couple. She is beautiful both inside and out. Glenn, what are you waiting for? Someone is going to sweep her off of her feet and you will regret it. I can tell you both adore each other, so why not just go for it one more time?

Who Run the World

Neill talks about her band's debut and being a single mother.

Hello there, beautiful people! Lots of love, love, love to you all! Thanks for hanging in with us here through all these episodes… Who'd have known everything would turn out the way it did? The good news is I believe everything happens for a reason. 

As far as this final episode goes, I don't have too much to say. I believe the majority of the episode speaks for itself… it was nice, funny, awkward, charming, and in the end, my band got to play! I was very happy we got some of that on the last episode. I love how they showed us (my band, Kitty LaLa) playing the song "Come Home With Me" as Matt and Courtney had an intimate stare/gaze-into-my-eyes-before-we-kiss moment... Hey, that's what I write for, moments like that!  

Anyway, the show was a success, and to conclude it all, I've got to give you a bit of my "behind the scenes/is it time to pull my hair out/what did I just do" inside scoop!

1. Filming a reality show is the most stressful job I've ever had in my life! 

2. I was writing and putting my band together as the show was being filmed… Talk about stress! Aside from the fact that I'm a new mother, that one really took the cake! Glad you all got to see a glimpse of our Dallas debut. Very proud of myself and the guys… Kitty LaLa killed it!

Thank you everyone for all of your sweet, beautiful, and encouraging words. It means a lot not only as a mother, but as a single mother finding her own path, a singer/songwriter/entrepreneur, and most importantly, a young woman coming into her own. I consider this experience as a true blessing. I see all the beauty that could've come from it along with everything in between… Thank you all for your sweet words and encouraging statements. Everyone on the show has been such a blessing to me and my son. I love all of you! 

I would love to hear from you (seriously!). You can contact me via Twitter @NeillSkylar or Facebook me (if my personal page is overloaded, just hit my fan page and I'll be sure to get back to you even quicker, hehe).

And please be sure to like my band Kitty LaLa or follow us on Twitter (preferably both) @KittyLaLaMusic! Here's our new music video, "Come Home With Me" --http://youtu.be/nYSoigfFnFE

Love you all so much! Please keep in touch! Muah! And for all those single mamas out there, let's stick together. If we can do all that we do, we might as well take over the world! All my love, heart, and soul to you all! God Bless! Once again… XOXO!
