The Quintessential Dallas Girl In Stereo

Tara introduces herself and talks about (and refutes) some of the common Dallas stereotypes.

Wow, I can't believe our show has finally aired. The anticipation was killing me! Welcome to my life, and I hope you will enjoy going on this journey with me. 

I want to start by introducing myself. Yes, blonde hair and big boobs are what you see when you look at me. But I am a lot more than that. I'm a daughter, sister, friend, businesswoman, animal rescuer, and proud Texan. There is always so much more to people than the typical stereotypes. 

Just as I am not a simple stereotype, neither is Dallas. I honestly have educated people ask me if I have an oil well in my backyard or if I ride a horse to work. Seriously? Dallas has the largest art district in the United States. It would make even JR Ewing proud! Because of our economic strength, a large amount of Fortune 500 companies call us home. Despite what you may think, Dallas is a thriving cultural and financial city that I'm honored to call home.

I am so happy that tonight's episode highlighted another one of my big Ds -- dogs -- and Paws in the City, my charity. PITC is absolutely my passion. When I was presented with the opportunity of being on a reality show, I was scared to death. The thought that cameras would follow me around 24/7 and capture every single intimate detail of my life terrified me. What scared me more was missing the opportunity to talk about my charity Paws In The City and animal rescue. There is a stereotype out there of over the top animal rescuers that throw blood when people wear leather. I want to put that stereotype to bed. My goal was to shed light on adoption and spaying and neutering. I wanted to show that anyone can save a animals life. 

Now that I'm off my soap box back to my friends.

My Drew -- talk about defying stereotypes and not defining them. There is a very special place in my heart that will always have Drew's name on it. Like I said, if anyone messes with Drew, I'll rip their eyes out. Courtney's my Southern belle, don't ever try to put her in a box. She is the funniest person I know, and her pure heart is complimented only by her beautiful soul. Matt has always treated me like a lady and always supports charities, including mine. I heart Matty! Glenn always puts a huge smile on my face. He has a glow that follows him everywhere. Neill is our newest friend with the beautiful smile. She lights up the room when she walks in. I was so incredibly blessed that I got the opportunity to go on this crazy ride with such a wonderful group of people. 

Stereotypes, you can laugh them off, embrace them, or defy them, but at the end of the day, be true to yourself and follow your dreams. I would love to hear your dreams, thoughts, and comments. Tweet me @taraharper01!

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" --

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!
