Watching this episode is the first time ever I wish I would have opened my mouth instead of staying quiet. We didn’t want to hear Lydia talking about Vicki. Of course Shannon's going to get upset, who wouldn't? Let's face it, they just met! I just wanted them to get along and was trying to remain neutral, but now I'm not sure if that was the right thing to do.
Vicki claims she's a "bad judge of character." She's merging her company and needs help staffing because she so often gets taken advantage of...really? She then goes on to put me in the same category as Brooks, as people who have done her wrong. Are you kidding me? What have I ever done to Vicki? Other than call her out for her disgusting lies, I was a good friend - I warned her about Brooks and she wouldn't listen. I tried to protect her from getting hurt. Is it too much for her to admit that I was right? I was nothing but a good friend. I’m happy to say I DON'T have a bad judge of character OR a delusional relationship with the TRUTH!
My heart breaks for Peggy hearing her talk about her mom’s passing of breast cancer. I think if I were Peggy and I found out I had cancerous cells in my breast, I would do the same thing. I can't imagine living with the fear of "if or when" I was going to get the news "you have breast cancer." What a wonderful husband to say the things Diko said about Peggy. Class act!
Shannon, girl, you are brave! 40% body fat is dangerous. I've been worried about Shannon’s weight for some time. We talk about it almost daily and I try to give her advice without being pushy. The thing about being healthy is not just looking good in a bikini. Not all workouts are created equal and there is NO one size fits all workout. You have to find your fit and be consistent. Being fit and healthy is a lifestyle not a diet, fad, or starving yourself. The one ignorant thing that people say is "just don't eat" that is almost as bad for you as overeating. I think most people think of losing weight as a four letter word, "DIET." But once you get educated on the right things to eat, you will never go back. My advice to people that don't necessarily like to work out is to try different things until you find the thing that you like. Maybe its dancing, riding a bike, or hiking.
I wish Shannon lived closer to CUT Fitness so we could train her. I want to help her so badly! We talk about nutrition and I try to keep her motivated to work out. She's not passionate about it like me, but she trying. She's doing a great job lately and I'm so proud of her.
Am I the only one that is totally confused about Lydia inviting Kelly to dinner? Who invites someone’s enemy to sit down for dinner? No one ever! It’s not like Lydia didn't know, she told Peggy that, "Tamra and Shannon don't get along with Kelly." Then, she called Kelly to see if she's going to make it to dinner from Peggy's car...why?
Dinner starts off nice, Shannon apologized to Lydia for getting upset at the birthday party. It looked like everyone was going to get along. My first impression of Peggy was that she seems nice, pretty, opinionated, and has an odd sense of humor.
The look on Lydia's face when I said, "Kelly Dodd just walked in" was priceless. At the time I thought it was weird that she jumped up and ran after Kelly. Didn't they just meet like 24 hours ago? Lydia never once told us she's the one that invited Kelly, and then Kelly told Shannon she had NO idea we were there...seriously, what is going on? Seems like a set up to me.
I know Shannon well enough that she was nervous when Kelly walked in. She didn't know what to say so she started talking about her weight. Ugh, I wish she wouldn't have done that. Kelly plays dirty. She will - and did - absolutely use it against her. It was nice of Lydia to pray over Shannon.
Kelly comes and sits down next to me and started bringing up old issues. I thought it would be best to change the subject and just kill her with kindness. I had no desire to argue with Kelly or let her get under my skin, I wish Shannon felt the same way that night. What happened next was epic and embarrassing! Insults, screaming, steaks and fingers flying, and we were running for the door. Just another dinner in the OC...LOL!
Lydia talking to Peggy outside left me feeling annoyed...she's the one that invited Kelly, who she just met one day prior and KNEW we didn't like her. She was responsible. Lydia, Lydia, Lydia! What were you thinking?!
