Tamra talks about her relationship with Simon, Gretchen's accusations, and more!

Meeting with Gretchen was something I felt was needed to move on. So much had been said that I thought we could clear the air and let bygones be bygones. I knew what the truth was and I wasn't expecting her to admit it. NO ONE is perfect but usually it is best to just come clean and move on so people are not constantly doubting you. This season I told myself that I would use my blog for positive messages and not bash my cast mates. As you know I am a very opinionated person and it very hard not to defend myself when I hear Gretchen and Slade call me a liar, backstabber, etc. Every time I turn around she is publicly bashing me. Either on her blog or to the press or to the other Housewives. I know that it is hard to watch what you say to press when asked certain questions and I am guilty of saying too much at times. At this point I refuse to entertain her nonsense.

The blog she has about me was posted on her personal website and other media outlets. The blog is full of lies about me and my family to try and discredit me and make her look good. All it really does is make her look very childish. At the time of our meeting I thought she would have no problem removing it. I thought she did it out of anger? Not removing it speaks volumes of her character. I am NOT surprised at all that she has put a link to it on her blog this week. I could very easily have it removed, but I would rather you read it for your self and see how SHE is the one that keeps this drama going. At this point all I have to say, Gretchen, I challenge you to a lie detector test. I have nothing to hide ... do you? OHH that would make a juicy reunion show!

With the holidays approaching I would like to wish everyone a very safe and happy holidays It is a time of giving, thinking about others and helping out those that are less fortunate. Simon and I get EXTRA involved with our charities during the holiday season and looking forward to our annual Santa Harley ride to help raise money for abused kids. Of course Mary's shelter (www.teenshelter.org) is very close to my heart and I continue to help and support them as well.
