It has been a few busy weeks since I last wrote. Haiti being one of them. I have been working with my friend Sarah (from the Season 1 event in the Hamptons) to again raise money for Help For Orphans. We have a friend in the Hamptons with a small 4 seat Cessna plane that has been going back and forth to Haiti bringing supplies. He is not "rich" and needs money for fuel and supplies to bring to the orphans. If you want to help, please go to http://www.helpfororphans.org/. I can promise the money will buy diapers and medicine that our friend will bring directly to the children. We will be posting photos on the site so please keep checking. Any amount. It all adds up!

My blog. What can I say. It all seems so petty doesn't it? Well, not all of it. I actually have a lot to say regarding Tamra and Simon. Under normal circumstances, it is none of my business or anyone's business and we should say nothing. On the other hand, by being on a reality show and talking about it on Andy's late night show following the episode, it gives us permission to discuss it doesn't it? I just finished reading Simon's blog. If he had stopped after the first paragraph I would have had so much more respect for him. He contradicts himself. He says, "And I humbly ask at this time to please respect our privacy." That should have been the end of it. He should not be blogging. But no, he can't control himself. He continues with, "So let me just say a few words, and then let it rest." All I can say is that he is passive aggressive and should just STOP BLOGGING. He knows Tamra is reading it (as are all of us, strangers) and wants to continue ripping off the band-aid. Stop. Just stop Simon.

Tamra, you surprise me. In a good way. First, my heart goes out to you and your children. I went through a divorce myself privately and know how humiliating that experience was. The feeling of failure displayed in from of everyone must stir a lot of emotions in you. I hope that Ryan is giving you lots of love and being a "good boy." Something good always comes from something bad like this and maybe Ryan is turning his life around and becoming the man you and Simon hoped he'd become. Take your time and take care of your children first. I hope you both can at least agree to do whatever is in the best interest of your children first.
