Dear Housewives ...
As Season 3 of OC concludes, Tamra Barney says farewell to her castmates (for now.)
The reunion show was a blast! Getting all us crazy girls together always makes for a good time. Poor Andy — I'm not sure he got a word in. It was definitely a time for all us girls to reminisce and set the record straight. Not sure that happened but we sure had a great time trying. I think we all had things that came out of our mouth this season and thought "Wow — that didn't sound quite like I wanted it to." But in the end we are who we are, brave souls putting our lives on camera. My experience with all the girls this year was so wonderful. I love and adore all them. I am so sad to see the end of Season 3. Thank you to all the viewers who tuned in every Tuesday and made our show so successful. I would like to take this time to say something to each one of the housewives:
Jeana (Mama Jeana): You are a wonderful person inside and out. You love and care for people like no other. I wish you happiness and love. Thank you for opening your house up to us this week when we had the power outage. I really look forward to teaming up with you this year.
Vicki (WOO-HOO): Your drive and ambition is amazing. You are an inspiration to everyone around you. You know how to live life to the fullest. Please don't ever stop saying "WOOO-HOOO."
Lauri (Mrs. G. Diddy): You are truly a beautiful person. you have a real sweetness about you — a girl that never has a bad thing to say about anyone! I wish you and George all the happiness in the world.
Tammy (Hot Tamale): You are so shy and reserved in front of the camera and a firecracker when the cameras are off. Your dark hair and blue eyes are as stunning as your personality.
Quinn (ROXIE): I know I said a few things on camera about you that were not too nice, but you know I was joking. You are a beautiful person that is full of love and passion. I know you will find "your guy" when the time is right.
It was a honor to work with all of you. Thank you for letting me in to your world.
Here is a little update on our family:
Sidney, just took the GATE test at school and we are patiently awaiting her results. She also fell off her scooter over Christmas and broke her foot in four places.
Spencer just started Cub Scouts and can't wait to go to his first father-son campout.
Sophia is 2 and we are trying very hard to get her potty-trained for pre-school this year.
Ryan is in a good place in his life after seeing himself on TV and re-evaluating his attitude. He is still working at Fletcher Jones and took a second job on Sundays. He has a new girl in his life and she seems to be making him very happy.
We have a new addition to our family: Her name is Bella-Bo and she is a two-month-old Malti-Poo, and boy, is she a lot of work.
Simon is still the love of my life and the glue that holds this family together.
Real estate is picking up. I just got two new clients this week and looking forward to finding them their dream home.
I would like to thank everyone at Bravo and Evolution for allowing me and my family to share our lives with the viewers. I know we are not perfect, but we try to live our lives to the fullest, and at the end of the day we are just the Barneys — a family of six living in the OC. A big thank you to all the fans that send me messages on MySpace. I hope you enjoyed Season 3.
