A Vocab Lesson

Tara tells us what two words should never, ever be used when speaking to a woman.

Wow! Was tonight's episode an absolute whirlwind or what? I'm still trying to catch my breath. Just when I start forgetting life's craziness, I watch a new episode and  am instantly reminded of the wonderful insanity in our lives.

And on the topic of "crazy," I just have to say that I am so glad Drew and I rescued the sweet pup we decided to name Elliot. I can't describe my feelings when we save a life…I'm just so grateful and proud that my charity Paws in the City could save Elliot's life with his much-needed heartworm treatment. 

From Elliot's case, you can see that it is extremely expensive to provide quality medical treatment for our rescues, so I always try to create new and unique ways to fundraise for these needy animals. That's why I always stretch my creativity, because I know that lives of dogs and cats are in the balance; the more we raise, the more we save.

Now while I try to be as creative as I can be, I have to say that I would have never guessed that dog jewelry would have been such a hit! So thank you, Amber Venz! She was an absolute sweetheart to create such amazing matching jewelry for dogs and their "dog parents." It was Amber's creativity plus our guests' wonderful generosity at my dear friend Angie Barrett's gorgeous home that created a wonderful event. So thank you to all involved.  

In the vein of everyone getting along, I was so happy that Drew and Matt were able to work through their differences at my party. Honestly, those boys are (both) well over six feet, so if there had been some sort of altercation there is no way I could've stopped them from going over the balcony! Whew…disaster avoided and overall a great night.

Let me wrap up with a note on a little ugliness from tonight, and guys take note -- there are two words that you never (ever) call a woman, and you know what those words are: "bitch" and "see you next Tuesday." I think my jaw hit the floor when I heard this, but I have to admit that Courtney did a way better job than I would have if someone called me that. I love my baby brother, Drew, but I would have probably launched him over the balcony. Listen up, Drew -- never under any circumstances call a woman either of those words! Just remove them from your vocabulary; life will be so much better that way, I promise. 

I would love to hear your thoughts, so please follow me on Twitter @taraharper01 or www.taralharper.com. Xoxo!

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!
