I'm still loving JERSEY. These girls bring it in a BIG way. Honesty and down to earth people make for good TV. These girls are not afraid of what other people think and we love it!
Teresa with her daughter is adorable, but a little nauseating. I am not a big fan of parents pushing their kids into pageants and commercials. But Gia clearly wants to be a star and Teresa just might be living through her daughter's dreams. I just worry about what kind of diva that little girl is going to be when she is 15. Watch out!
Ashley and J's story reminds me a lot about what I was going through when Ryan was 17. My advice to J is get a hold of that teenager now. Ride her like sea biscuit. No new car...No cell phone...No privileges...NO WAY! Caroline son was so on target when he said, "What are you going to buy her when she get arrested?" (Something like that.) Park the car in the driveway with a sign on it saying, "This is what you can have IF you bring your grades up and start acting responsible, until then, take the bus." If I had the chance to do it all over with Ryan, I would. I know it is hard but it's not impossible.
You are my fave housewife! Don't we all just the the guilty little pleasure of watching other peoples lives, especially if they're trainwrecks! I re watched the OC reunion last night and it got me to thinking about you and Gretchen (money grubbing whore) I think you should talk to her "boyfriend" on tape or camera. Not that anyone with a brain believes her anyways, but it would be great to hear it from a third party.
Glad to see you back this week! I love your insights and unlike the NYC ladies blogging for this show, you don't get in to too much self-promotion! Can't wait for the OC to get rolling again!
If another housewife comes out with a skin care line i'm going to scream!!!! find anther career.
Boring, boring, boring! who's going to buy all this shit anyway...no one!
Your blog does not surprise me in the least. In my opinion you are are just like the Housewives of New Jersey. That is not a compliment Tamra.
Glad to hear that you are doing well. The NJ show does NOT depict NJ wives/families at all. This show is just 1% of the people of NJ.. the ones who actually are rooted in the cities.. NYC or Philly..and relocate to NJ to live in the "suburbs"..yet.. buy manicured mansions and have no idea what the rest of the state looks like or how we live. Most NJ people are very well educated, 2 income families who spend all of their money on bills, saving to educate their kids, have no maids, cooks, fountains in our yards.. maybe a garden or tomatoes??? We do not walk around in designer dresses, shop 2 times per week, go to spas, get tons of Botox and boob jobs, and spend thousands on our kids' birthday parties and modeling agencies... This show is getting boring as it is so fake and just a relocation of the OC, Atlanta, etc. shows.. Same premise... Rich women who live off of their husband's wealth and have no education.. Just shop, decorate, and primp their bodies and themselves because their main priority is to look like a Barbie doll. Poor role models for young women..and young men to aspire to???? These reality shows have knocked down decades of women who have tried to show that women are not just uneducated Barbie dolls/looks.. and out to marry money..
I agree with you I still LOVE OCHW the best! Please bring Laurie back she was my favorite, I hope the blond bimbo does not come back.
I agree with Sharron Hamilton
is that all anyone knows how to do is put their names on skincare lines and jewelry that other people design and make? the only housewives that have REAL jobs are Jeana[oc], Alex[ny], Bethenny[ny], Jill[ny], Vicki[oc], Lisa[atl], and Dina[nj].
I just want you to know that i too was a teen mom at 17 and am very pleased to see you trying to help teen moms and teen pregnancy's. I love my child and would never change anything i have done. He is my heart and soul and my precious child. No one could have ever changed that. I just thought i would share my two sense thanks...
Tamra, I was thinking the very same thing about Dina's lips. They definitely look enhanced. She's a very pretty girl, so she should just admit it. Most people DO NOT have lips that are that puffy naturally. I think they started out like Caroline's and she helped them ever so slightly. If you're botoxing what's the big deal. People are so afraid to admit this. Attractive women should just own it.
TAMARA , THESE NJ WIVES ARE A BUNCH OF REJECTS THROW BACK!!! I FELL ASLEEP WATCHING THE SHOW BORING!!!!CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT THE OC WIVES WILL BRING!!!!
I have to say that I think you are exactly right about all the NJ women, however, please quit with all the terrible one-liners...you are not Bethenny and never will be. Just sounds like you are trying too hard to be funny...either you are funny or you aren't...you aren't.
Dang...I thought for a second that you were gone for good but leave it to Bravo to disappoint again. These housewives have more class and talent than you ever thought about having. Don't bother giving parenting advise....look at how your son turned out. He's a absolute PIG! Kinda like his Mom. No excuse for how you still allow him to act the way he does. Just look at how he acted on THOC. Botox-ha!- your face is so frozen you look like a cross between Janice Dickensen and Phillis Diller! The Housewives of New Jersey are real...you are the biggest fake there is. As for your "charity" work....ya-right. I'll believe it when I see it.
you couldn't have blog it better girl you hit the hammer on the nail!!fake ,blunt,catty, boring,clueless!!!!
Tamra it seems to me that you have a jealousy issue with women who are younger and slightly more attractive than you. First it was Gretchen and now you have catty remarks for Dina! I've watched many times on the show of how you'd gotten plastic surgery before, and I've watched how you absolutely hated the fact that you were turning 40. I would say to look inside yourself and love who YOU are. I love how you opened up about the situation between you and your parents, that was very courageous of you, Yet I think you still have deep rooted issues. With that being said I wish you all the luck in the world!
I just want to say that You are the most beautiful housewife of them all. I watched your season and I know the other blonde with the grandpa boyfriend (may he rest in peace) thought she was so great but you truely are gorgeous and down to earth. Stay cool
Tamara..your one sexy mumma! I live in Australia and cant get enough of the OC girls! I am so proud that you ratted out Gretchen...My mum always told me "nothing hidden will remain secret" and Im so glad that you brought her sly ways to the surface! You where epic when you went off! Round of a plause to the Hottest housewife - Tamra! xxx
All I can say is that I freakin love you! You are just hilarious and I relate myself to you..I'm a straight shooter I say what I feel and I never hold back..people need to know the truth..So happy you became a part of one of my favorite housewives casts because you own the show sometimes..I just love watching your wise cracks..you and Vicky were pissers this past season..partners in crime. Loved It! But I am a Jersey girl so I love them too....Love you Tamara cant wait for next season!!
Tamra, Great blog entry this week, love that you are getting involved in the group for the teenage mothers. I think you hit the nail on the head on all subjects from this episode. Isn't Caroline awesome? On a side note, I know Jeana isn't coming back for the next OC season. I'm dying to know who's staying and who's leaving. Any hints?
Hi Tamra, I was wondering if you have an email for possible advise questions? I'm going through a hard time with my parents as you once said you went through with yours. Thanks for your time.
I think that NY and NJ are the best two shows housewives have to offer. I loved OC when it first came out and this past season was just insane. Tamra and Vicki need to get a hold of themselves and stop being so damn mean...they are like the mean girls in high school. Grow up and get out of the lime light if you can't act like adults. All but Gretchen are old enough to be my mother and no one acts like one except Gina.
I do know that teen pregnacy is on a rise and what you are doing is great. I think that teens today are going to have sex either way, parents should not allow it however if you do get pregnant, we have to teach our children to do the resonsable thing and have th baby. there are so many couples out there that wish to have children but cant. take resonsablity for your actions, abortion is wrong.
I miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please tell me that the original housewives of OC are returning soon, and just the original ones.
Hi Tamara, cant wait to watch the OC housewives. I am true jersey girl, but at this point i am getting a migraine!!
Tamra, I think you are great and I think the reason people get upset with you is because you tell the truth. Keep it up, because I think the world needs more people like you. Also good luck with the skin care line, I love skine and hope to get to try it. I was wondering what kind of skin care and foundation do you use now? Your skin always looks great!
love the website link to teenshelter. it was very inspiring. glad to see that you are showing your humanitarian, or should I say, true heart.
I don't understand why people on these blogs get so upset with you housewives... I LOVE watching you all!
Who cares if you spend tons of money and lead ridiculous lives? The majority of you use a percentage of your fortune for GOOD - like helping out charities. That's great!
I mean, yeah, Tamra... I think you're a gossip - but I wouldn't have you any other way! You would say the same things to their face, maybe a little quieter and under your breath - but I love that you enjoy life and don't take things too seriously!! I love the New Jersey Housewives too, not sure if it's better than the O.C., but maybe the finale will prove me wrong. Can't wait.
Good luck with the skincare line!
Good for you Tamara with helping out with the teenage girls. I was a teenage mother as well so, I can sooo understand. Good luck!
aww be nice to danni bc u recieved alot of shot from viewers until u were able to show ur side of the story...and spa days these days arent relaxing needles on ur forhead or in ur mouth are both ewwwwwww....and danni didnt say put that on tv put that on tv bravo wanted it there so the showed it danni had not control over that
hey i luv u during the whole show and let me tell u r the hottest housewife i give u hugs and kisses and luck
Tamra, I did enjoy you on the show until you and Vicki started acting like horrible mean teenagers. At least you didnt try to deny it at the reunion show like Vicki did. She acted so suprised that people thought she was mean. you started acting this way as soon as you thought Gtetchen might be the "hotest" housewife It came across very ugly and made me (and others)stop liking who you were and enjoying your story line I could not believe how cruel you were after you invited Gretchen into your home. I hope that next year is more enjoyable or I ( and many of my friends)will be changing the channel!
I honestly thought the Orange County season was the most boring! New Jersey is the best! I can't wait to watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey next season.
Saw you on The Today Show....you did gret. I enjoyed watching you. Hey, if ever you guys want to do a show down here in Louisiana we have alot of drama going on. OMG. And its not with just the three huricannes we have had to deal with, but same ol' housewife drama. Can't wait to see you on next season of Hw'S, Just hoping its less one.....Gretchen.
you talk so confusing, first of all you met your husband at a bar, you had nothing,you are a wanna-be with nothing to offer no- one but bullshit, you are so confusing, i would really like for you to be you. and for the record if you were so ask to participate in a 3-some it had to be something more to that(remeber spirit knows spirit) you thought you were putting out some nasty shit but what you did not know was that you made yourself look stupid, real women that are not ask that shit and by the way maybe you should stop playing with vicci breast and people want ask for that kind of services,you are not laura,vicci do not have any more well off friends, we are in a recession.
We always knew you were the prettiest and your blogs clearly show you are the smartest! You are so articulate and soooo funny! Please keep the blogs coming!!!
When are YOU going to write again about the Real Housewives of NJ???? We miss your comments! What about Danielle? YOU have to have something to say about her police report just released, etc.
Put down the ponytail and start blogging girl!
Tamara you are my favorit oc house wife. Did you notice gretchen left a message on you're blog calling herself the hottest housewife??? Yeah i'm sure it was her. Gretchen is just like Danielle.
