I am extremely saddened by the disaster in Japan, as I'm sure you all are. The death toll and high number of missing people is devastating. This should be a reminder to all of us of how precious and fragile life really is. We have to appreciate and be thankful for everything that we have, and for all the loving people in our lives. It all can be gone so fast. I pray and hope that the people affected by this terrible catastrophe will find the strength to heal and rebuild with confidence and peace.
With that said, It is very hard to transition into the cattiness of the show and the things that were said, since they really don't matter in big picture of life. But, since I signed up for this show, here I go. I would like to start off by saying how happy I am that Vicki and I recovered from last year. I care about her so much and consider her family. I realize now that she cared about me, and that is why she said the things she said to Simon. The hardest thing in the world is to take someone else's side other than your husband's when your marriage is falling apart. Vicki is a woman that works hard in life, loves her family and friends, and also plays hard. She can be sharp with her tongue at times, as most of us can, but you will always know where you stand with her. She is a true friend. I am really getting to know Peggy, and I'm so glad she was brought on the show. She is a fun-loving friend with great family values. I have gotten close to Peggy rather quickly and see my self being friends with her for life.
OK Gretchen, we all get it, you can't forgive me for exposing your past! But here is a news alert, if you sign up for a reality show and you have skeletons in your closet, they're going to come out! There are a few things that I would like to clarify about what she was saying. First that I owe her an apology -- I personally have apologized to Gretchen two different times. One of them was on a televised press event with all the Housewives there. I reached out to her off season asking that we put things behind us, and she agreed. Two weeks ago in NYC I told her I wished her the best and really did not care to continue with this nonsense. The last two weeks she has continued to talk badly about me and blame me for her mistakes. I see no reason to continue trying at this point, not everybody needs to be friends. The truth of the matter is she knows I know the truth about her past relationship and she hates it. If it was all a lie, she would have moved on. Like I said in my first blog, your lies become your future. As we will see this season, two other housewives come forward with knowledge of her past. I wonder if she will blame them for ruining her life too? Second, that the last five years of my marriage were fake -- First of all how can a marriage be fake? I told her that Simon and I had been having problems in our marriage for about five years. I think every viewer could see that last season things were not good, and prior to that I kept my pain to myself as most people do in my situation. Third, that I am banging Simon's friend -- That was a rumor that Simon put out there in the press. Simon and I both had met Eddie at a holiday party a few years ago with Marcos, but that does not make them friends! Fourth, that I went to her hair guy Victor and called his salon about a rumor -- This is the funnest lie of them all. Victor is what I like to call a Housewife ankle biter. He chased after all the ladies to try and get on the show. These are the kind of people that I do not let in my life, and Gretchen should really think twice about the company she keeps. As we all see, she has contradicted herself so many times on this episode it's almost comical.
Tamara, i think out of all the housewives you have to be the most realistic one out of all! Eddie & you look great together and it looks like he makes you very happy. You live once so i say go for it and enjoy every moment!
Glad you admitted that the tub scene was TMI. Were you hoping Simon was watching? HUMMM! I think the alcohol drove you both into the tub!
Who still uses the word HUMP?!?! LMAO All I have to say about the bath scene is if I had a hot body I would of done it. =)
WOW, you now have NO room at all to talk about ANYBODY!!!! Come on really, you are going to blame, shots, and that you forgot the camera crew was there??? REALLY. I really believe that was a dig meant for Simon.
It is great that you are moving on and that you are happy in your life now but completely inappropriate. You have never been my favorite, but I have lost even more repect for you after this. You should be totally ashamed!
Tamra, I know you said the bathroom scene was a mistake but that was a big one. What if any of your kids see that. Control yourself you are a grown woman. You were my favorite last year and the year before. I know Simon was controlling and I am sure he knows that now, but you needed someone to give you guidance. You remind me alot of people who think after the fact and say it was a mistake, well stop making them. It is easy to do, just use your brain and think before you leap. I know I don't know you and I have never blogged before but that scene was hard to see.
Jennifer (Real Housewife of Ky)
Tamara, Wow! Eddie is adorable! I'm glad you have found someone who makes you happy and lets you be you. Get over the tub scene. Move on! I'm glad you recounted the apologies that you said to Gretchen. She needs to move on. If I were you I would say very little about her from now on. You and Vicki making up and being together again is great.
The bathtub scene was a mistake? As the good Dr.P would say, "Oops, don't you hate it when that happens".
The scene was hot! It's great to see you happy again! You've already said your apologies to Gretchen and now it's her proble that she can't get over it
Tamra, I have always loved you for your directness and wit...please take the high road and stop "clearing the air"....
And P.S. Vicki is sneaky and probably a "fun" friend at most...beware...
Tamara I have been watching this show since the very beginning and OC is by far my favorite! I am very impressed on how you admit making a mistake and owning it, that is tasteful. Congrats on Eddie, cant blame you for getting caught up in the moment
I just want you to know after watching this season so far you are my fav :) It has always been Gretchen and not you. That has changed, I think you look great, have a positive attitude, you are enjoying life and I'm very happy for you. Poor Gretchen she needs to give it a rest, shes a beautiful woman but is soo touching and needs to move on like you have and grow up. I just wanted to know you have a new fan and I think you are doing great considering everything you have been through. Keep rocking it girl :)
Telling someone that you want to move on and not continue nonsense is NOT an apology, Tamra. The correct words are "I'm so very sorry..."
I think you should be SO embarassed about the bathtub scene. WOW!!! So very tacky. I was almost speechless. Yuk
girl it is what it is...ya'll are both gorgeous, do you and make no apologies...but damn it was just unexpected *sidenote YOU COULD BOUNCE A QUARTER OFF EDDIES ASS!!!
I dont think you have anything to feel sorry for with the bathtub scene. There is stuff like that on all the time on soap operas. Who cares really? The kids would probably just say ew, thats all. Im happy that your not being controlled anymore unlike some other holy-er than thou housewives. Anyways, you go girl!! He is hot! PS...im tryin every which way to find out where to get your marilyn shirt you wore in last weeks episode. I tweeted both you and andy hoping for an answer. Please enlighten me!!
Tamara, first off you shouldn't be sorry about the "bathtub scene" personally it was romantic and it showed a side of you viewers don't see and it wasn't a bad side whatsoever, but of course Gretchen will have something to say about it because for one second the spotlight isn't on her! (gag) even though I'm sure more than half of RHOC viewers would much rather watch you! Your amazing and strong, all the qualities Gretchen lacks. Keep your head up and move forward with that beautiful smile on your face! :) TEAM TAMARA!
Hi tamara, Obviously Gretchen is super jealous of you. I don,t think for a moment that if you apologized to her she would find something wrong. She has developed into a big head with her fifteen minutes.
I am happy you are happy and hope that continues.
Love you Tamera
i love the show.yes. and as far as anyone,s past. who cares!! we live day to day. everyone will always make mistakes. we try hard to put things behind us. and go on with it..thats all any of us can do. good or bad. as far as women talk. thats all it is talk.. like sticks and stones!! but yes the bathtub scene was a little much for bravo. their is young kids watching. but!! they see this on soap operas as well during the day . and some kids are not in school.. homeschooling!! so i have no problem. but would have liked to see eddie more than just that.. but it is what it is! like i said .. people talk.. who cares who said what.. this is a new season. lets move on!!
Hi Tamera, just wanted to say forget Gretchen she is very immature and silly. Move on and don,t mention her ever ever again. Have parties and good times but be sure not to invite her.
I am glad you are happy and as a lot of men have done found a new interest ASAP. It is a way to get over a realationship. You have my (your biggest fans) approval. Go fourth and be happy dear girl...and as you said "who wouldn't hump him"?....lol
I am glad you and Vicky are friends again...koodoos.
Take care and enjoy your life. Gretchen ain't that serious.
good for you moving on , hang in there!! but you and Gretchen need to be friends again! thats all i want to see ,bury the Hatchet , love one another, your housewives!!!! best to you always!!
Please..please..Tamra...everytime you try to blog or talk about changing your life...clearing the air...you do something so incredibly stupid. You have got to be kidding if you think your children won't...at some point, see you naked on national TV in a bathtub with a naked man. You should not be giving out advice to others like Dr. Phil...you should be on Dr. Phil.
good for you glad to see you moving on!! please make up with Gretchen!!! enough is enough!!! you said things and so did she!!! look at the better things in life!!
I dont think the tub scene was so bad. I understand about your kids and all though. Tamra you are sooo lucky you have Eddie. This is a tough thing to go through and having him now is a gift from god you are right. I hope it lasts forever. I think what bothers me is after an episode Simon seems to post things on facebook showing how hes with the kids and the perfect dad. Im not saying hes not...but it makes the haters come out and seems like hes just asking for people to post bad things about you on his facebook.... and right there thats a controlling thing if I ever saw one. Its kinda sick. I like Vicky but didnt like how she spoke to the workers. Alexis's picture is in the dictionary where it says "Trophy Wife" Shes so proud she has 1 nanny now. Its so funny. Jim looked happy driving alone. I would never bow down to a man like that for any amount of gifts or money. OMG Gretchen. Just demented. I wonder why marriage was good for her and her dying fiance but not for Slade??? HMM??? $$$$ Tamra I wish you the very best. Dont let the haters get to you. Keep on being the great mom you are and hold your head up high!
Finally, something worth watching on the show. Tamra's boy-toy is a hottie. Yes, boy-toy! i doubt this latin lover will stick around this toxic environment.
Tamra is hot over all, but when you break her down...not so hot!!!!
Tamra this statement would make me run...You - "I Love You" Eddie's reply was "you love me..." Awkward.
Glad you are happy in your relationship. I am also glad that you have apologized for putting Vicki in that situation. You need to make another apology. You need not take other peoples words as the truth. You slaughtered Gretchen when she was vulnerable. Even if the telephone guy was telling the truth, you do not have any personal, independent proof. You are playing judge and jury and you can't seem to see the errors of your ways. I hope you move past this so she can. Enjoy your new found freedom.
Tamra - you are my favorite First Lady of Bravo! I must admit I was kind of shocked that such a steamy scene was happening on a Housewives episode, but you know what? Ain't nobody gonna cast that first stone at you cuz we all do things that after the fact make us go "eek!" but you owned up to it and u live and Learn and I'm LOVING the obvious changes in attitude we are seeing in u since ur divorce. You are awesome and looking hot! And if Eddie's got a gay brother....or a straight one that just drinks a lot...send him my way! Ha!
correct everyone makes mistakes... I have to say that you look sinser on this episode and pray nothing but the best for you and your family... Be wise in your future decisions. Vicki is a true friend to you... be good to her... as for the other ladies on this show stay away....
I could have sworn I was watching Bravo -- not Cinemax After Hours. How can one 'forget' cameras were there...all five of them? Tacky.
In one sentence you say you forgot the cameras were there, in a later sentence you state that Eddie was shocked that you were naked in front of 5 camera/audio crew members.
Be careful when you critize others for being contradictory.
Gretchen: Don't feel bad, it was sex not murder. Your man is smokin' hot and you have nothing to be ashamed of. Your kids are too young to watch the show and you shouldn't care what anyone else thinks.
I doubt you really regret the bathtub scene, you threw Vicki under the bus last year, watch your back Vic, she starts having trouble with Eddie she'll blame you!
You are a very pretty woman but your behavior with Eddie is totally inappropriate even for a 16 year old. I don't mean the bathtub scene but you just cling to him, hang on him, kiss him all the time in public. It shows your insecurity. Why? You could have almost any man you would want.
Seriously????? "Caught up in the moment"???? Forgot there were five people there with cameras???? That was disgusting & shame on Bravo! The Housewive's franchise has hit a new low.
Everyone makes mistakes, it takes a big person to admit them. Glad to see you own up to your mistakes.
I can absolutely see how you can get caught up in the moment with a HOT boyfriend such as yours! Naturally, your regretful because any loving caring mother would be. So you made a mistake, it makes for good TV if nothing else. As a fan of the show, I've grown to really like your ability to be brave and honest when it matters. I wish you the best on your path to a new life. May it be filled with genuine happiness and love.
hi i just recently started watching the show and you and peggy i believe it is are my favorite the one you want to have girl time with the girl that said the thing about that hat at your bf house just ignore here!your way better then that or youu couuld apologgize just to keep things peace full in the group not like there wont be more dramma becuase some of the girls are just to good to be real and nice at least they think they are but any how when do you plan on telling touur kids about eddie?if you dont mind me asking
Hey Tamara! I must admit, I did not like the cattiness from you last season. I am also starting to see about Gretchen as well. She do not want to let it go! It is pretty annoying and seems like she wantss to stay relevant. You have already apologized to her so now its time for you to distance yourself. I am thrilled that someone finally admits they make mistakes!!! Happy Tamara is the BEST!!
i am glad you see your mistakes and making it known. with that being said you were my favorite house wife on oc and now kinda at the bottom. ask yourself honestly if eddie really respected you he would not have let you do that scene by walking away from the restroom. it is also funny that someone who don't like to be on camara took his clothes off for the whole world to see. for myself it just don't come all together.
First of all, Tamra... you are my favorite housewife!... ok, that said... I am really glad that you got out of a controlling, painful, and mentally-abusive relationship!! Many women do not have the confidence and self-esteem to bring themselves out of this kind of situation. I am so glad that you have resigned to "being yourself", and are involved with someone who will let you flourish. It is a hard life to have to be the "chameleon", changing yourself to accomodate all of the people that you love. I really feel a connection to you in that way, and am also working on being my "true self" despite what others think I should be. Thankfully, I have a very wonderful husband who is "letting" me do this. (he has no choice) It has been tough through the last couple of years, with my transitions/changes, and him not really getting it. Finally, though, he is seeing that me being myself doesn't neccessarily mean that I don't want him anymore. Our connection has grown so much stronger now that I don't just adapt to his ways of doing things/thinking about everything. This year is our 20th anniversary, and my husband is finally my best friend!!! You and I have so much of the same personality... I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy you letting me in to your life.
Thank you, Tamra... Lisa O.
I personally did not think the bath tub scene was that big of a deal... and everytime I watched you with Eddie I had a grin, it's good to see you happy and in love- now play nice with all the other ladies and you'll be set :)
I love Peggy also way to go girl! As for Gretchen hopefully she thinks about her matrimony with slade after all he is noting but a housewife hunter lol. I so like your new boyfriende eddie he seems to me or be a good man unlike simon of course. And I agree with what you are saying about vicki! Much luck to you and sucess in your upcoming future! And can I just say that I absolutely love the new house that you are going to buy and i love you as well also. God Bless!
