Gretchen thinks the ladies need to lay off her and Slade.

on May 2, 2011

Hi everyone,

First and foremost my heart goes out to all the people that have been affected by the natural disasters lately, and most recently all the families and communities that have been affected by the devastating tornadoes here in our homeland. It has just broken my heart to turn on the TV lately and see people lose everything, and it makes me truly realize was it important in life. 

With that said, this is a great episode to talk about what it important in life. Seeing how silly, catty, and ridiculous the night was made me sad. It's not how much money you have, what you own, or who can say the meanest thing, it really is about family, having good and true friends, and deep and meaningful relationships. After watching this episode I am beyond grateful that I have all of those things in my life. 

Unfortunately, every week Tamra makes it apparent that her mission in life is to trash talk Slade and me, tear others down, and find joy in someone else's misery. She talks about things in our lives she knows nothing about, so I will address them here in my blog again for the ninth week! 

We start with the scene of Tamra and Eddie going to Vicki and Donn's house apparently to have a smack talking fest about Slade. According to Tamra I am always the one that is talking about her, but this scene just proves my point again that Tamra is the one always talking trash first. She immediately starts talking to Vicki about something she once again read on the internet about us (which seems to be her truth). As much as Slade and I were discussed in this episode it makes me wonder how some of these people could have ever gotten along before without having us to talk about. I mean we seem to be the topic of conversation for them more often than not. My mom always said I should be flattered when other people have nothing better to do than talk about you, but I must say it is a little creepy to me now. Almost "Single White Female." Tamra seems to know every last thing that is written about Slade and I on the internet. I don't even know about half the stuff she says she reads on the internet. I swear this girl has a google alert on our names, because every time I turn around she is talking about something she read about us on the internet. If that isn't a little creepy in and of itself, I don't know what is. Personally, I don't just believe something I read about someone, especially on the internet. I go off of facts and experience, not just hearsay or internet blogs. Tamra only hears what she wants to hear, not the truth. Case in point, at this dinner party when my friend Jack say to her, "How much are you paying him?" referring to Eddie (because Jack was convinced Eddie looked like a guy you get from an Escort service). Of course Tamra turns it around and looks at Vicki and says Gretchen just said, "Did you get Eddie from 999-Salsa." I didn't even say that for goodness sakes! She just makes it up and runs with it! It's crazy! It was kind of like when she said I called her an evil bitch at her party. I never called her that, she is the one that said that. I swear sometimes I think she must have voices talking to her in her head or something.
