The Best Medicine

Sarah gives her thoughts on comedy and Gretchen and Tamra's friendship.

Laughter. . .is always the best medicine!

It has been said that laughter in life is one of nature's best medicines. I love, love, love to laugh. I am a very strong believer in that statement. In a world unfortunately suffering from so much stress, worry, and heartache, sometimes it's healthy to get out, let loose, and laugh a bit with good friends.

When I got the invite from Gretchen and Slade to watch them perform at the Improv Comedy Club, I was absloutely ecstatic (to say the least). How exciting this was!!! To be honest, it was such a pleasure for me to be able to support two of my best friends by watching them perform their hilarious, new, stand-up comedy routine at the very well-known Improv Comedy Club. This was a big deal, and I was sooo excited for them. I really needed to get out and have some good laughs with some old friends, and it also finally gave me the opportunity to introduce my fiancée to a few more of my long time good friends, Alexis and Jim. It was really nice to see everyone getting along, laughing, and having a good time.

We sat in the front with Alexis and Jim, so we were all Gretchen and Slade's little "front row fan club," cheering them on during their entire performance. It was such a fun and exciting night for everyone. They did great, of course. I couldn't be happier for them!

I could only imagine just how nervous Gretchen and Slade both must have been before getting on stage. You would have thought they had performed a million times because they both really did such an amazing job. They are naturals that's for sure!

I thought their performance was hilarious. I laughed so hard I seriously was in tears at one point. I genuinely enjoyed being given the opportunity to be able to watch two of my very best friends, that work as hard as they do, successfully achieve one of their life long dreams and have so much fun with us at the same time. We all really had such a great time and enjoyed the entire show! It really reminded me why we all loved hanging out together all these years and had became such good friends in the first place. They are both naturally hilarious and are always so much fun to be around, on or off stage. What you see is what you get with these two! Lots and lots of laughs and good memories. They are such goofballs. . .I love it! Hanging out with them is pretty much an absolute guarantee that you will be laughing hysterically the whole time, that's for sure. Seriously. These two really do make the perfect pair for a stand-up comedy routine. I'm so glad that I was able to be there to support and cheer them. I think it's great that they are doing what they love most by simply making people laugh.

As far as my thoughts on the rest of this week's episode. . .

In all fairness based on what I've seen, I really don't understand why Vicki wasn't being very supportive of Gretchen and Tamara finally putting aside their differences and ending all of the unnecessary drama between them for once and for all. Maybe it will just take some time for everybody to get used to the idea. In my opinion, I think it will defiantly be a lot more peaceful for everyone involved. It could be a healthy, positive step forward for both of them that will hopefully encourage more fun "drama-free" times ahead for all of us. . .

Well, one can only hope right? LOL. . .

Shannon Settles the Score

If Andy's asking "What's the score, Shannon Beador?" Shannon thinks she's definitely won.

This is Blog #20, my last Blog for the season! The past year was been a wild ride for both me and for my family. I have come to many realizations about myself, made lifelong friends, experienced some tough moments, and embarked on a path to a more peaceful self. So to use Andy’s phrase, “What's the score, Shannon Beador?” I would say without a doubt that I have definitely won.

I am happy that the viewers got a little glimpse into my sometimes unconventional ways! For me, it's all about good energy. I love that Vicki’s business has clearly benefited from trying feng shui with Elaine Wright. If you can't get hurt, there is no reason to try anything holistic. If you actually benefit, why wouldn't anyone want to go the natural way? If my children tend to feel better after seeing Dr. Moon and not have to take antibiotics, then I am a happy mom. It's all about creating a healthy balance!

I am an open book and am often criticized for it, but I am who I am. I don't know many couples married for 13 years that have a perfect relationship. Everyone has ups and downs, and although it may be difficult and require effort, it is possible to move through it and make things better. I have said it many times in the season that divorce is not an option. I will always fight for my marriage and my family. It truly touches my heart that so many fans have been and continue to root for David and I. I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your positive comments! Thank you!

Do Tamra and Heather truly want to move forward and potentially develop a friendship with me? Only time will tell. But for now, I have amazing friends surrounding me, including Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek. And most importantly, I have been blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. That is where all of my energy is focused.

I will never forget this entire year, both the good and the bad, because each moment took me on the journey to where I am today. And today, I am in a phenomenal and happy place. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
