What's Hot

What's hotter than fuzzy handcuffs? Tamra Barney defines what really makes a Real Housewife sexy.

It was really nice going out to lunch with Gretchen and Ann. I told Ann how horrible I felt about being so catty with the other girls in the limo and thought it would be nice to go out to lunch and have a heart to heart. The comments in the limo were all in fun and there was NO truth in any of them, but now looking back it was at Gretchen expense, and that is just not cool. I felt the need to tell Gretchen what was said to basically get it off my chest. I am a very outspoken person and I rarely hold anything back, but hurting people for no reason is just simply not me. I can understand if Gretchen was mad at us — she had every right to be. The viewers will continue to see the ups and downs of our friendship in the upcoming episodes. I can assure you one thing, it has nothing to do with physical looks, as much as they try to make it out to be. There is one thing I learned a long time ago - there is always someone HOTTER then you! Damnit!

Let's talk about what's hot...I would like to say to viewers, please don't take my comment (I'M the hottest housewife) so seriously. If I truly believed that, I would have to be the stupidest person alive! The only things hot at my age are the hot flashes I get at night. To me, it's hot to be a Mom, a wife, a caregiver, a career woman, a positive person and so much more. Being hot really has nothing to do with physical beauty and it has everything to do with attitude. Putting on a pretty dress and having that extra spring in your step — now that is HOT!

Ryan, Ryan, Ryan...where do I start? I was so disappointed when Ryan told us he didn't want to continue with the CHP testing. I do believe it is something that he has always wanted to do. I think it is the perfect career choice because it is very structured and structure is something he needs. I hope in the near future he reconsiders and continues with his testing. In the meantime I hope he doesn't get pulled over, and if he does I hope the officer uses fuzzy handcuffs!

I have a hard time feeling guilty and taking the blame for Ryan's lack of motivation. Like most divorced parents, you feel so much guilt for choosing a path that is not ideal for your child. As a single Mom I worked almost 7 days a week and he spent a lot of time in daycare - I simply didn't feel like I was there for him enough. I now realize that Ryan is an adult and he needs to choose his own path and take responsibility for his own actions. Simon and I just want Ryan to be happy in whatever career he chooses. I am proud that he continues to hold down a job, I just wish he was working in a career he enjoys. It was exciting watching Simon and Ryan at the shooting range. I think as Ryan gets older he appreciates Simon so much more. I think he finally realizes that Simon just wants what is best for him and a little tough love won't hurt him.

I think Kara looks up to Simon - they have very similar personalities. Simon was more then happy to take Kara to the shooting range. I was suppose to go shooting with them, but backed out at the last minute. I am deathly afraid of guns and I just couldn't do it. I feel the world would be a better place without guns. I was freaked out when the kids said they wanted go and watch, but Simon assured me they would be behind the glass (as they were). Hey Jeana, what's up with the soul mate comment? I thought I was Simon's soul mate!

Our dinner at K'ya started out nice, with good food, cocktails and lots of girl talk. Suddenly that talk turned sour! I'm not sure why Jeana was defending Vicki's ex-husband - I don't even think she knows him. But there is one thing I do know — don't stick up for your friend's ex-husband! I tried to stay neutral, but I couldn't keep my mouth shut (oh, what a surprise). I have little compassion for a parent who has no communication with his or her child. I don't care if they move to the moon - you still stay in contact! As a parent, I would die before I turned my back on my children.

It takes some time for Vicki to warm up to people, but once she trusts you she is a great friend. To me it seems like maybe Vicki has been burned one to many times by her girlfriends and she is just cautious. I think Vicki and Gretchen will be great friends one day. Hold on to your La-Z-Boys - next week's episode looks like a drunk-fest! I'm scared!

Lizzie: Tamra Doesn't Fight Fair

Lizzie thinks Tamra's comments about her children were meant to deflect from her own problems.

Happy Labor Day!!! I am going to make this blog short and sweet. It’s a holiday and I am going to be spending the day with family in Newport wearing a Sun Kitten and a smile. I hope you all are having a great holiday weekend.

To be honest, the second half of the Reunion was hard to watch. I think it got too ugly. I am not going to insult any of your intelligence in explaining this episode. We all know that misery loves company, and "projection" is as easy to spot as a $2 dollar bill. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that everything miserable that comes out of Tamra's mouth is a direct reflection of what is going on in her life. In my opinion, children are off limits. It's quite apparent that Tamra does not fight fair and when all else fails she will throw your kids, marriage, and even your body under the bus in an attempt to hurt you. We filmed the reunion for over 10 hours and after listening to so much ugliness my heart just couldn't take it anymore.

I do not regret telling Shannon all the things that Tamra said about her. Everything I shared with Shannon was something that happened and was said on camera. I didn't take anything and create unnecessary drama. I would do it again in a heartbeat and I would think my friends would do the same for me. I simply did not know the truth about Tamra. Danielle told me all the things Tamra said about me. That is why after my birthday I was so hurt by her. It's hard for viewers to understand because these things weren't in the show. She could have called me and said she wasn't coming. I called her after sitting on the bus for over an hour. The next day she made fun of me to Danielle, in addition to asking plenty of questions looking for negative details regarding my party.

On that one-year free membership to Cut Fitness: Let's delve into this shall we? I was the one that contacted Tamra days after my party. She did not contact me to give me present. I had invited Tamra, Eddie, Danielle, Joe, Heather, and Terry to the Kentucky Derby and Tamra was the only person that had not sent in the RSVP. It was past the deadline and it was getting borderline rude at this point. Tamra, in fact, was making fun of the Kentucky Derby and the charity event that would be hosting us to Danielle. So, I reached out to Tamra regarding the Kentucky Derby and she texted me back saying, "I want to give you a free membership to CUT for your birthday." Tamra knows I am already a member to a sports club and that was the last I heard of this "free membership." I never received any kind of certificate or card for membership. I suppose she thought I would have the gall to show up and say, "I got a text message from Tamra for a free membership!" It's almost laughable. Needless to say, I don't go to her gym and she didn't attend the Kentucky Derby with me.

There is nothing else to say regarding the Shag, Marry, Kill game that I haven't already discussed in great length in any of my previous blogs. I said the word "marry" and that's that. Tamra even glared at me on the way out of the Valentine's Party and repeated it. "Marry you?" Tamra has said multiple times she couldn't even remember because she drank too much and there are even text messages where she says it too. Her story changes continually, like the words that come out both sides of her mouth.

During the Reunion, Tamra said many more hurtful things that you didn't see. She went on to talk about my son Preston and my marriage. We all remember the episode in the park where Preston hit me on the head with his elephant. He was asleep in the car and he had a mini temper tantrum. He was three -- it happens. I would assume most mothers have had it happen at some point. In addition, my husband and I got in a fight on my birthday. I feel awful about it, yet it made us closer. I just wanted what every woman wants -- to feel special because of her man. I am a big time believer in learning from your mistakes and that won't ever happen again. However none of those incidents had anything to do with Tamra. But on her quest to hurt everyone, she managed to drag in some irrelevant topics. I know it's all to deflect from what's going on in her life and to make someone else look bad. . .but it does hurt nonetheless. My babies and my marriage are my life so I guess her goal was to attack the things closest to my heart because she can't fight fair.

I hope you enjoyed this season and I hope you had a fabulous summer!!! The fall is my absolute favorite time of year, so I say bring on football and cooler weather.
