Last Call

Sarah explains her point of view of the bowling debacle.

Bowling + Champagne + Drama = Last call for Alcohol

I am just going to start off by saying that truth be told there always comes a point in everyone's life after a long night that you really have to take a moment to stop and ask yourself... "What the F--k!?!" LOL. . .

As much as I would love to laugh about this whole bowling extravaganza, I want to be completely honest here by saying that embarrassed wouldn't even be the right word to describe the outcome of this evening.

I'm sure that chances are either you, or someone you know, may have had an "outer space moment" at some point, and sometimes you really just have to own it and move on. There are always two sides to every story.

I know it sounds so cliche, but seriously I had just about the worst day possible before I even got to the bowling alley. I was in the middle of a rough relationship period and was pretty much in tears by the time I got to the bowling alley. So logically thinking I shoulda/woulda/coulda have just called it a night and went home. But I thought that maybe spending some quality time with the girls would cheer me up a bit. Unfortunately that wasn't the case.

Looking back, yes, that was a rookie move on my part to try to approach Vicki knowing she and Gretchen had just had a big blow out at the bunco party, but I had met Vicki before. She never seemed to have a problem with me, so I figured it was safe to have a seat next to her for a bit while we all ate. I was completely caught off-guard when I asked Vicki if I could talk to her for a minute just to be snapped at in return. In all fairness I could see where she might think that Gretchen sent me over to talk to her about their fight, but Gretchen knew nothing about why I went over to talk to Vicki nor did she even want me talking to her.

 

Funny, but true, if Gretchen had it her way I'm sure she would have wanted to knock me out if she thought I was trying to start any trouble. That's when you know you have a good friend. LOL.

I know it's their usual routine but It really didn't help matters much either when Heather and her wife Terry and their four faces were instigating with the whole "we are back in high school again" childish act that they like to put on by making their usual behind the back jabs at whoever is "it" for the night.

Beside having to deal with the Adams Family putting their two cents in all evening, my whole thing was, why have a bowling party if everyone is going to be segregated and uncomfortable the entire time? So I made the effort to be nice to Vicki. I wanted to go over to at least acknowledge what she was going through, sincerely offer my support regarding her daughter, and see how she was doing after her recent surgery. As a mother myself, I know how heart-wrenching something like that would to go through, and I thought it would be a nice gesture to reach out to her -- even if it probably wasn't the perfect time. When it comes to a serious issue like this -- is there ever really a good time?

We are all adults here. Lets keep it real: a fight is a fight. It comes as fast as it goes, then you get over it. But when you are possibly dealing with something as serious a cancer, everything else seems so small in comparison.

I would say that it's safe to assume that miscommunication had a huge part to play in all of the chaos that night. I guess that sometimes trying to be the nice guy can turn around a bite you in the butt if you aren't careful. But, to be honest, if I had it to do all over again I wouldn't change a thing but my champagne intake. I will always be the person that wears my heart on my sleeve. That's just who I am.

I do have one quick question for Heather: will your new restaurant offer valet parking for spaceships or just broomsticks?

Lizzie: Tamra Doesn't Fight Fair

Lizzie thinks Tamra's comments about her children were meant to deflect from her own problems.

Happy Labor Day!!! I am going to make this blog short and sweet. It’s a holiday and I am going to be spending the day with family in Newport wearing a Sun Kitten and a smile. I hope you all are having a great holiday weekend.

To be honest, the second half of the Reunion was hard to watch. I think it got too ugly. I am not going to insult any of your intelligence in explaining this episode. We all know that misery loves company, and "projection" is as easy to spot as a $2 dollar bill. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that everything miserable that comes out of Tamra's mouth is a direct reflection of what is going on in her life. In my opinion, children are off limits. It's quite apparent that Tamra does not fight fair and when all else fails she will throw your kids, marriage, and even your body under the bus in an attempt to hurt you. We filmed the reunion for over 10 hours and after listening to so much ugliness my heart just couldn't take it anymore.

I do not regret telling Shannon all the things that Tamra said about her. Everything I shared with Shannon was something that happened and was said on camera. I didn't take anything and create unnecessary drama. I would do it again in a heartbeat and I would think my friends would do the same for me. I simply did not know the truth about Tamra. Danielle told me all the things Tamra said about me. That is why after my birthday I was so hurt by her. It's hard for viewers to understand because these things weren't in the show. She could have called me and said she wasn't coming. I called her after sitting on the bus for over an hour. The next day she made fun of me to Danielle, in addition to asking plenty of questions looking for negative details regarding my party.

On that one-year free membership to Cut Fitness: Let's delve into this shall we? I was the one that contacted Tamra days after my party. She did not contact me to give me present. I had invited Tamra, Eddie, Danielle, Joe, Heather, and Terry to the Kentucky Derby and Tamra was the only person that had not sent in the RSVP. It was past the deadline and it was getting borderline rude at this point. Tamra, in fact, was making fun of the Kentucky Derby and the charity event that would be hosting us to Danielle. So, I reached out to Tamra regarding the Kentucky Derby and she texted me back saying, "I want to give you a free membership to CUT for your birthday." Tamra knows I am already a member to a sports club and that was the last I heard of this "free membership." I never received any kind of certificate or card for membership. I suppose she thought I would have the gall to show up and say, "I got a text message from Tamra for a free membership!" It's almost laughable. Needless to say, I don't go to her gym and she didn't attend the Kentucky Derby with me.

There is nothing else to say regarding the Shag, Marry, Kill game that I haven't already discussed in great length in any of my previous blogs. I said the word "marry" and that's that. Tamra even glared at me on the way out of the Valentine's Party and repeated it. "Marry you?" Tamra has said multiple times she couldn't even remember because she drank too much and there are even text messages where she says it too. Her story changes continually, like the words that come out both sides of her mouth.

During the Reunion, Tamra said many more hurtful things that you didn't see. She went on to talk about my son Preston and my marriage. We all remember the episode in the park where Preston hit me on the head with his elephant. He was asleep in the car and he had a mini temper tantrum. He was three -- it happens. I would assume most mothers have had it happen at some point. In addition, my husband and I got in a fight on my birthday. I feel awful about it, yet it made us closer. I just wanted what every woman wants -- to feel special because of her man. I am a big time believer in learning from your mistakes and that won't ever happen again. However none of those incidents had anything to do with Tamra. But on her quest to hurt everyone, she managed to drag in some irrelevant topics. I know it's all to deflect from what's going on in her life and to make someone else look bad. . .but it does hurt nonetheless. My babies and my marriage are my life so I guess her goal was to attack the things closest to my heart because she can't fight fair.

I hope you enjoyed this season and I hope you had a fabulous summer!!! The fall is my absolute favorite time of year, so I say bring on football and cooler weather.
