Peggy shares her thoughts on her first reunion and the end of her friendship with Alexis.

Now moving onto Tamra. Tamra has been such a warm, welcoming friend to me from day one. I thought I was joining a friend (Alexis) on the show, but quickly learned otherwise. Lucky for me I met Tamra before filming, and she became the friend I thought Alexis would be during filming. Tamra gave me advice on filming, contracts, press, and was an open book that welcomed me to the group! Let's start with Tamra's bath tub scene. I find it ironic Alexis considers taking a bath with someone you love porn. For someone with such strong "beliefs," she sure does judge a lot. From taking a bath, to same sex marriage, to women running for president. I'm so happy Tamra has found love and is enjoying herself on her terms! Eddie is a great guy that respects her so much. As for Tamra and Gretchen, like I said on film, I think they both will never agree and just need to let it go. Tamra really never did dish on Gretchen in her interviews this year, so I found it funny Gretchen thought that. Tamra did have a lot of comments about Slade, and although this may have been wrong, her points appear to be valid after we hear Michelle, Slade's ex, on the phone. And I have to say no matter how much you dislike someone, as a man you should never disrespect a woman on national TV the way Slade did to Tamra. Tamra also had a lot of comments about Alexis this season, but I was proud of her for apologizing to Alexis when Alexis attacked her about it. As for the fight with Jeana, it definitely got out of hand at Vicki's party, but Jeana was meddling in her business and needed to stop. I can't believe Jeana admitted to me on the reunion that she is still married and has a live-in boyfriend. And she wants to give relationship advice to Tamra?

Now onto Alexis. Wow, where do I start. After watching the season and reunion shows, I really now just feel compassion for her. She seems so lost. She is a totally different person from last season and different from the friend I knew the past four years. I think she was trying really hard this season to be more interesting and outspoken and get the fifteen minutes of fame she so desires. Funny she admits on the reunion she lied about giving my name to producers, as she thought it would ruin the friendship. Lying and being fake ruined the friendship. That and her talking poorly about me to mutual friends once I met with producers. If she was a true friend we would have had a great time filming and worked through any issues! She was always interrupting, even on the reunion, yet she thinks I'm trying so hard for camera time. You have to just laugh. And then there is the constant competing! You saw it even on the reunion with her all of a sudden thinking she too had PPD. Yes, I did say we had talked about her possibly having PPD when we were friends, but I live and deal with PPD everyday, so it's not something that just does or doesn't come up for me. I also found it funny when Gretchen revealed she had bulimia in Texas and now all of a sudden Alexis has that too. Then when Andy is wrapping up the show and asks for final thoughts she brings up me again! Can I say obsessed perhaps? Tamra is onto something.
