Dealing with Divorce
Tamra thanks friends and fans for their support during a difficult time.
Thank you to everyone for all your support and kind words. I have not blogged in the past few weeks for obvious reasons. I have a lot to deal with in my life right now and would like to keep it as private as possible. I know Simon is upset and you can tell by his blogs. I decided at the beginning of the year that I would not use this platform to be disrespectful to any of my cast mates ... including my husband! Right now my concern is for our children and their happiness.
Gretchen choice NOT to remove her blog spoke loudly to me. How could I take someone seriously when they wrote six pages of nasty words about me? Most of what she wrote is lies and even if it was the truth, that is not how you move on and put the past behind you. I have continued to keep my mouth shut most of the season about Gretchen, she continues to talk badly about me in every episode and every blog she writes. I refuse to stoop to her level and do the same. I really hope one day we can REALLY move on.
My decision to not attend Gretchen's party was simple. Why would anyone in their right mind want to go to a private residence of someone that is talking/writing so many bad things about you? When I was first invited I did agree, thinking she was removing the blog and we were moving on, but that never happened. I have to say that the party looked like a lot of fun and Gretchen's house looked lovely. I do wish things were different and I could have attended, maybe next time around things will be different.
I was surprised to see Alexis get so mad at that girl, I have never seen that side of her. Really all that says to me is that she really does love and adore Jim so much that it bothers her to see another woman get so close to her man. Instead of judging Alexis I think we should be happy for her that she is in such a great relationship. Good for you guys!
Last year I didn't spend much time with Lynne so I was never close to her. This year is a whole different story. I always say "to know Lynne is to love Lynne." She is so funny, so sweet and never has a bad thing to say about anyone. It is really hard to think badly about someone who would do anything for a friend.
When news broke of my divorce Lynne was the first one at my front door with flowers, card, chocolate and wine. She had tears in her eyes and was so concerned for us. I will never forget it. Thank you, Lynne.
My life is changing in a big way and we are all adjusting day by day. I do not know what the future holds for us at this time, but I have a feeling we will all be OK. Again, thank you to everyone that has been reaching out to me.
