Tamra Barney

Are Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi enemies or besties? Tamra tries to decide.

Ok, are you as confused as I am? Are Gretchen and I friends or enemies? They are trying so hard to make it look like we hate each other but every other episode we are together laughing having fun. Hmmmm, it really makes you think. If it wasn't for those interviews it really would look like we liked each other? I invited Gretchen to my pool party because she has expressed to me she wants kids and the whole life style that goes with it, plus she is a lot of fun. Her dogs are the closest things to kids that she has so I said "Sure, bring them along." Once a month during the summer my friends and I try to get the kids together and have a party. It is always exciting for the kids and time for the adults to catch up. We all had a great day hanging out by the pool, eaing barbecued hot dogs and a bunch of junk food. You might of noticed Ricki? He is Ladera's gay househusband, he is a stay at home dad and has been with his partner 18 years and they have 2 kids together. (Well, not together — they had a surrogate.) They are the first same sex couple to have both fathers names on their kids birth certificates. He is an amazing dad and a great friend in our community.

Gretchen had mentioned that it is very hard for Jeana to keep a secret and Jeana will admit it herself. We often joke that if you want something printed in the OC Register then just tell Jeana. I tell her all the time that she should just blame it on "Mad Cow disease." For those of you that DON'T watch Boston Legal, Mad Cow is a term that William Shatner's character uses for his forgetful memory. It is impossible to get mad a Jeana because she has such a caring personality and really only means well. Things just kind of slip out of her mouth and she doesn't mean any harm. We all love mama Jeans and everyone in the world needs someone like her on their side.
