Sorry for not blogging last week. Ryan had surgery and like most moms my energy was focused on him. He broke his foot three months ago and needed surgery, but he didn't have health insurance because he had just started a new job. Long story short, he broke his foot again and needed pins and screws. Get better Ryan.
So I can't believe next week we say good-bye to our favorite bitches. Seems like just yesterday we were so excited to tune in and watch New York's finest. There was lil' Simon in his Speedo and hairy nipples, Ramona with her crazy eyes and wild arms, Lady B with her one-liners and rocking bod, LuAnn letting everyone know she was The Countess, Kelly with a huge smile looking medicated and Jill trying to sell everything she can to make a Bravo buck. Funny how I wrote about Simon and NOT Alex....who's the housewife in that relationship?
So Alex and Simon need drapes, and what better place to go than Zarin Fabric? They bring their horribly behaved children, who rip through all the fabric, bounce on the furniture and run down the aisles. It personally drives me nuts to see children act like that - I don't know how Jill kept so calm. You know she wanted to knock their heads together. I have two boys and two girls and know it isn't always easy to keep them in line. But I have to say when I give my kids "the look" (which isn't that easy with this much Botox) they know to stop. Silex you need to show those kids who's boss!
Tamra you can be funny most times but i saw alot of bitterness, maybe it's cos you are going through alot of stuff. However i don't think it's your place to make nasty comments about Gretchen etc.... see like i always say karma is bad.. cos you did have a bit of your own medicine regarding the things being said about you and your ex-hubby so perhaps stick to your funny self and fun self cos it,s nice to watch but stay away from gossip, especially personal ones, learn to say sorry too it will help you go far, i liked you but now not so keen cos you revealed a very vindictive side to you..sorry but the truth hurts..Wish you all the best and hope you take some things on board.
Tamra, I really look forward to your blogs, they are hilarious. And i agree with you about Kelly, she is OUT THERE big time. As for Max, my feeling is she met him at a modelling agency, and in return for pretend dating, he is getting all kinds of air time, with an eye to a future on TV here.
You're finally back! I was waiting to see your hilarious posts! I agree that Kelly is annoying and nauseating, and I love Bethanny and Jill. I, too, can't wait for the Jersey wives, it's like a car wreck, you just gotta watch! Of course Jersey women will complain it's not like them, but I'm from NY, Long Island, I don't live like the NY women, but I don't complain. NY is full of different women, and so is Jersey! I can't wait to see you blog on them!
OMG Tamara! i am so glad you spoke on the Max situation.Let's be real here. Kelly is 3 sheets to the wind. Who walks around Manhattan in a swimsuit and says they kept it appropriate for the kids lmao. I can't wait to see the jersey housewives either. There's nothing better than loud-mouthed Gotti style italian-americans. Except Dina. A. She already did a reality show about her wedding a few years ago so I'm sensing someone too desperate for air time. B. I cannot stand poor women that marry rich men and they think they are rich too and start acting snobby. All it takes is one good divorce lawyer to remind you that it's his money and not yours. And back to the townhouse and Corolla in the garage.
I think you have found your calling. I love your comments and play by play of the housewives. Please keep it up when we start watching the New Jersey ladies.
Tamara, you are a real hoot! I missed you last week, I agree with you about Kelly, I really don't think that she is playing with a full deck. Either that, or she is just plain stupid! Those brats of Silex are something else, like you, all I had to do was give my kids the look, and they behaved. I can't believe how they just stood there and let them practically tear the place down. Remember the dinner party last season when Francois was messing with others food, and screaming like a banchi?
Hilarious blog! Although Simon and Alex are kind of creepy, the one thing I like is that they really love and respect each other. Hope Ryan gets better soon.
Tamra - well you've gone and done it! I've always thought you are funny and admit you have many great qualities, but I've never liked your bully tactics. HOWEVER, your blog does crack me up (when I am not wincing). But your botox comment was priceless. Way to not take yourself too seriously. Thanks for the giggle.
I think you rock! You are the hottest housewife. Not Gretchen. She is hot too, but she is very cocky and tries to act all innocent. It's pathetic. You have a great body too. I am only 35 but your body is better than mine. I can't wait to see you bee yourself in next seasons episodes because yourself if what makes you so beautiful.

Tamra, You look great without Duzoxin. Is Vicki really someone you want to emulate physically? Just stick to natural, healthy ways of staying fit and energized. You already look great for a 41 year old!
Tamra, You are so funny!! I love your critque about the New York houswives! You are more interesting the they are!!!
For once I agree with you. RHoNJ seems like it's gonna rock, and NY is awesome. Apparently it should just be east coast.
Finally the blog I've been waiting for for like almost two centuries! JK(: Hope Ryan's recovery goes well.
So I totally agree with everything you just said...ha..douche those pits..ha. I'm so excited for RH:NJ and the finale of RH:NY. Like you said I really hope they bring it!
Kelly...can't stand her...Bethenny should just clock her in the mouth one good time so for once we don't listen to her talk.
So I really hope you're gonna blog on RH:NJ as well as Bethenny(: I just can't see the blog page without yall's pictures(:
Hope all is well for your loved ones!
Ryan is a Pisces. This sign rules the feet. I am so sorry that in his case it seems to prove problematic. I hope he gets better soon.

Right on about Jill Zarin. She definitely the most calm lady when dealing with customer's wild kids. Also you are right that kids need to know who is the boss. My mother always using the face like you do to get kid to quit rowdy behavior. I am one of the four children (the only one who is deaf) and my father is always away on Navy duty back in our day. It was hard for her to jingle children with full time job and worry about my dad. I am now 46 years old and my mother is widow since 1996. It was a great memory for me when you mention "the face". Thank for mention it.
I love NYC but totally agree with you it has fizzled! I use to like Jill but she has turned into one big promotional spot!!
Tamra, you crack me up. You make me miss Cali soooo bad ugh! hubby is in the Navy (he is getting out in like 2 weeks) Then we are moving to middle of nowhere, Texas. Both of our families live in Sactown, CA. I miss everything about it. I'm currently in crappy Virginia Beach, VA. Which apparently, as I was told by a co-worker my first day " We don't take people from California seriously out here"... psh.. Thats just cause they don't know how to take a joke and have fun like we do on the west coast!!! Thats why I love you, cause you just exude everything that California represents, FUN! haha. just had to show some love.
Tamara I think you are phenomenal and full of life lady.I love the fact that you don't care about what people have to say, and that you stand up for what you believe in.Keep speaking your mind cause this all makes a lot of sense.Love you!!!
P.S. You were right about Gretchen....just saying
Missed you last week! Sorry to hear about Ryan. Hope he feels better!
o.k. I was sooo looking for your blog last week because I just HAD TO HEAR what you thought about Kelly RUNNING IN THE STREET like she was entitled to just run in front of cars and let the world move for her. OMG she is pathetic!!
Tamra You really-really have a talent for writing. (I stole the twice used adjective from Kelly) lol Your blogs are very entertaining.
Tamara, Sorry about Ryan and the surgery. My brother went through surgery months ago, and my mom was a mess. I live in Orange County and know your son. I also know how he broke his foot the first time, drunk. Did you know he was drunk again when he re broke it. He is changing to a drunk and a As#$$le. And he is losing any friends he has left. I'm am worried that the next time, he will really get hurt. If you do really care for him,You should talk to him. Or better yet, have your husband do it. He seems to be the only person Ryan respects and fears. m.
Hi Tamra. I love reading your blogs every week! I do have to respectfully disagree wtih you though. I don't think the NYC show is losing steam. They seem very real and are quite interesting - with the exception of Kelly. I watched the NJ show and I have to say, those ladies did nothing for me. They seem very self centered and they didn't seem like very happy people. I didn't hear any talk about doing things for charity or showing that they are good, nice people. It seemed like they are all "me, me, me!" It was a bore, and I have no interest! I think you'll find it will do the worst in the ratings. I still like the OC and NYC, but that's about it for me.
I missed your clever comments last week. Hopefully, Ryan will feel better soon.
I couldn't agree with you more regarding Silex's street urchins. When I saw them running all over the store or clinging to Alex's leg and the parents did basically nothing to discipline them, I thought it was like the tail wagging the dog. Those boys know that "No" means "OK" when delivered by their permissive, clueless parents.
I couldn't agree with you less regarding their renovation. RED, black and gray are not warm and inviting, light or bright colors. The room looked austere, dark and grim. No wonder da boyz will remain wild childs.
Thanks again for your comical take on the season.
you rock Tamra! How much did you get paid to endorse Duzoxin? hee hee. you should do a behind the scenes book on reality tv shows. that would sell big time.
Sorry to hear about Ryan, I hope he gets better soon!
I hope you write blog for the New Jersey Housewives too. I know I will be watching since I am addicted to this series. I do think you Bravo should do a show with Texas's housewives. I know they have no shortage of wealthy housewives here.
Kelly does seem to be in her own world. It seems kind of pointless for Bethanny to argue with her.
I do not think Silex's boys are always have such bad behavior. They edit this show like crazy right? Sometimes I wonder if all of you women are great friends and stage arguments for higher ratings. Either way it's entertaining and great brain candy.
You are so funny. I love it. And you are correct that the last few shows for NY has sort of fizzled but hey - they are people just like the rest of us (but on tv and a little richer).
I hope your son is feeling better. Good for you putting him first.
And PS Kelly is so out there. She is going to be so embarrased when she watches herself. But then again. She won't be - because she just won't get it.
As usual Tamra your blog was hysterical.. if I didnt have an ostomy I think I would have peed in my pants (can I say that and it get printed hmmm). Oh my heart goes out to Ryan. I have Parkinsons and have had some nasty falls, long story short. I have a foot that was broken and has pins and a rod the length of my foot. So ouch.. I completely understand.. I was your age and I sure wanted my mom there!! You've come along way Tamra, I loved you the first season... was really not feeling you season two... but girl you are back fiesty and funnier than ever. I LOVE your sense of humour, more people should have it.. Promote away honey... its your shows:). Cant wait til next week.. ~ Mary Kellerman
Great Blog, however, nothing tops the expression "Ass sphincter says what?" from earlier in the season. It still cracks me up!
Tamara - So, is filming for the next OC Housewives happening yet? Can't wait to see what is going on in the West Coast.
Yes - good reality TV is no good without the silly controversy, the fights and the drama that make your mouth drop! I'd love to see everyone "get along" - but that would be booooring!
But still - can't Bravo drop Kelly from the show? She brings nothing but stupidity to the show - there's got to be a more interesting Housewife in NY than that!!! I agree with you - Max is a fake - they can't really be dating!
Next season - go easy on the Tequila with Gretchen!
Tamra you crack me up! I think this season of NYC has been one big comercial and it's boring on too! I hope your son is doing better and I can't wait till next season!
Tamra, u rock. u r the best blogger/commentator. I can't wait for wives of NJ as well. NYC is so over. Kelly is too weird and doesn't fit in. the countess needs to find a new rich guy to pay for her lifestyle. give Bethenny her own show, she's the only one of interest and just make sure she plugs Zarin fabrics once a show....LOL
Silex just creeps me out.
Tamra, can i be ur gay husband?
Tamra I was angry with you just a few months ago but you have won my heart again! Nice to have you back to your witty happy self. Thanks for blogging always a good read!
Love your blogs. You are a hoot. Please consider writing more... books, articles, columns, etc. You are very articulate and have a wicked sense of humor.
The only person who would totally "get" Kelly is Lynn--they both seem medicated. They can have their own show--The Housewives of CVS.
You always keep me laughing!
THANK YOU! Finally another housewife notices what the rest of the viewers noticed. KELLY IS NOT SANE!!! It drives me crazy that the HSNY seem to all be pretending there is not an elephant in the room. Worse, they are not validating or backing up Bethany. At least you have the ovaries to say what is obvious to the rest of America.
Love ya Tamra! You have beauty, brains and a sense of humor!!! You already have a rockin' bod so I hope you don't overdo it! Houston, TX is watching all the Housewives and loving all of you!!! Keep the dramzzz coming!!!
Great blog Tamra- Thanks also for the headsup about NJ- can't wait! Don't bust on NY so much because they are very entertaining in the least- even if Ra-moan-a has chuckie odor and sweats like a hostage under the pits!
Tamra, I agree with you about Kelly she acts like she's medicated whenever she opens her mouth. She can't remember things she says and she has a hard time making sense when she is trying to make a point. Also her Hieeeeeee and Byeeeeee in her little girl voice is REALLY annoying. How is she anyhow? Give me a break. She for me ranks as the most annoying NY housewife.
