This week started a bit slow, but there were some highpoints. I have to admit that mama Tamra looked beautiful and that doctor will be busy for the next 5 years. Tamra, he should be giving you free everything for life. If not, give him my number and I'll set him straight. Also, and I preface this by saying I have many wardrobe regrets this season, but Tamra, pull that puffy sleeve purple people-eater blouse out of your closet, put it on ebay, send to consignment or give to someone you detest. That shirt was wearing you.
Lynne's conversation with her mother was like watching two stoners look at sand. Lynne said her father ran a tight ship. Well her ship is as loose as a goose and those maniacs are running rampant. Her mother said it right when she said enabler, and you can bet your ass that car is the first thing I'd pull because we all know what a great combination fast cars and drinking are. Lynn needs to brace herself this week. I've got a few words in her direction. I loved when she said "sometimes I spoil the girls too much." YA THINK???
Poor Jeff. I do not know how the hell they allowed a camera into that house. To you, the viewer, I am telling you that it is the most invasive, toxic experience and like being under a hot white spotlight for hours. He looked like a dying man (which we now know was the case) and it is simply unnecessary and uncomfortable to watch. It really is unbelievable how quickly an illness will age you. And I'm sorry for saying what everyone is thinking, but that whole scene just felt a little too Anna Nicole for me.
I'm certainly no angel, and I've given many a run for their money, but she went to Vegas the minute he got home? Ouch. One one hand, I can't imagine how draining it is, and I think she just wants it to be over. However, there is a camera in her face and she is doing a good job at selling whatever it is that she's selling.
I don't think that Gretchen is always trying to get attention like many of you and Vicky (all the time) say. She just gets it!!! I just had a discussion about it with my sister and she said the same thing about me...I always am trying to get attention. But that is just not the case. I just get it. It would be like trying to have green eyes and to do so using colored contact lenses. Then I am TRYING to have green eyes. I don't wear colored contacts, and I just HAVE green eyes. I think Vicki and the others see it as Gretchen trying to get attention because they are (as Vicki has said) starved and in need of it, and therefore probably goes out of her way to TRY and get attention, and it just ticks her off because Gretchen always has it.
