Viva Las Vegas! What a fun weekend we had, wish you could have seen more of it. The Red Rock is a little off the beaten path, but it's truly a beautiful hotel/casino. You might remember all the girls went a couple years back.
While having drinks with Vicki, I was shocked to hear things were so bad with Donn. I really did think things were pretty good with them. Of course my heart breaks for both of them. I love Donn and Vicki, and the pain they will continue to go through is horrible. Walking away from a long term marriage is probably the hardest thing you can do. Vicki has a long road ahead of her. Emotions smack you in the back when you least expect it. I am glad I can be there for Vicki as a friend and someone that just went through the very same thing.
Fashion emergency, that's for sure! I was supposed to pick Vicki up and drive with her to Alexis' fashion show. I tried calling her but could not get a hold of her. I started to get worried with all that she was going through. I knew it wasn't like Vicki to not do something she committed to. I was sitting with Lynne when I got the message that she was headed to the hospital because she was hemorrhaging. It was then she explained to me that she had some minor bleeding in the past few month and never went to the doctor. Why anyone in the world would not take that as a serious symptom is beyond me. Maybe she was embarrassed? But that day she wasn't just bleeding a little, she was hemorrhaging out of control. I personally have a condition called colitis and suffer from some serious symptoms. My doctor has warned me that if I ever started bleeding to get my buns to the hospital ASAP! I also had a co-worker and friend die from colon cancer three months after having those very same symptoms. So when she told me what was going on, my mind went crazy. When Vicki called me she was just getting admitted, and they were getting ready to run tests. As you could see by my text that was shown, I asked if I should come see her. She asked me to hold tight until they ran more tests. Since I was five minutes from the hospital, I sat and waited for her to get back to me. Obviously my mind was not on fashion! But I never got out of my seat or interrupted the show.
I really really applaud you for getting through all of what you have gone through in the last year. =I have NEVER seen you come across this happy and confident. It seems like a huge weight has been lifted off of you and it clearly shows on camera. You didn't look like you were disrupting anything. You weren't talking much about it, just updated Peggy on Vicki because she asked you too and stayed in your seat. I was hoping you were not going to go off on Gretchen at the table and you just sat there baffled. But, it seems like you kept your cool. Good for you Tamra. Many many blessings and much happiness in your life.
You're a great friend. The nasy housewives aren't worth a second thought. Toughen up girl & ignore their ignorant/rude comments. Apparently, they don't know any better.
Tamra, as i have said before I have not been a big fan. But lately I must say I'm proud of you. You have tried to stay away from drama. And you have been a friend for Vicki. Just be there for her. That is the best thing you can do. And you are doing good for yourself, keep it up!! ;)
You confuse me in your blog when you say that you never got out of your seat or interrupted the show. It did appear to the viewer that you were being disruptive at the show. Instead of feeding on the drama, you could have excused yourself to go check on Vicki instead of getting everyone all stirred up when there is nothing that anyone could have done in that particular moment. I completely understand where Gretchen was coming from.
Tamara you ROCK!! I could not believe Gretchen thought Vicki was faking! I was in complete SHOCK! Who even thinks that??? You handled the situation well and I don't know why Alexis and Gretchen thought you were beingg rude! I'm so over them being cattyy. Keep being real and stay beautiful! LOVE YA!
your was right to support your friend gretchen was very wrong for saying that she still has anger toward you and vicki she need to get over all that old stuff.
thank you for bringing up the subject of bleeding because i have had that before and its urged me to go get checked up and make sure everything is ok.
Tamra you and Peggy's men are the hottest men of all the housewives shows. Oh Teresa on New Jersey got her a hot one too. Whew!
I think you are trying to redeem yourself. Stop worrying about the ladies you do not like and focus on being happy and a respectable mother.
Tamra. I looove the nail polish you wore for Alexis' fashion show. Who makes it? And what's the name of it? Need details PLEASE! Thanks. ♥
-Faithful viewer since season 1
Team Tamra Vicki and Peggy!!!!!Alexis is being dragged down by Gretchen which is her own fault and she will hopefully one day realize that!!.I am sure when Gretchen does her blog she will have all the apologizes in the world for talking about Vicki but after that NO RESPECT AT ALL FOR HER!!! She is just trying to put things in peoples heads!! I can't wait for the Finale!! I hope you do put Jeana where she belongs!!! I am glad you are now Happy!!! It's wonderful to see you smile so much this season!!!!
Hi Tamra I absolutely love you on RHOC. I tune in every chance I get. I was totally blown away by the other housewives at the fashion show! How callous can they be? I thought you handled yourself very well under the circumstances. You showed such true concern for Vicki, which real friends do. I hope she pulls through both with her health and happiness, and I also wish the same for you. You rock Tamra! Your fan Martha
It does not matter that Vicki told you not to come you should have still gone to the hospital if you were so worried about your friend.
I can't believe the finale is next week already. Last season was dull and this season went by so quickly.
Eddie is a good influence in your life. SOmetimes you're mean but you're coming around. I like you more now than the first episodes.
TAMRA, YOU MOST CERTAINLY DID NOT DISRUPT THAT FASHION SHOW! I WAS SURPRISED TO READ THOSE FEELINGS. YOU WEREN'T SCREAMING OR CRYING...YOU SIMPLY TOOK THE CALLS OUTSIDE. THERE'S NO WINNING WITH THIS CROWD! IF THEY WANTED TO SEE A "DISRUPTED" EVENT, MAYBE THEY SHOULD WATCH THE CHRISTENING ON RHWNJ!!! ANYWAY, IT WAS AWFUL WHAT GRETCHEN SAID. GI BLEEDING CAN RAPIDLY DETERIORATE A PATIENT'S CONDITION...WAS A SHAMEFUL REMARK. I HOPE ALL OF YOU WOMEN FIND SOME SENSE OF PEACE AND HAPPINESS. YOU'RE ALL YOUNG, BEAUTIFUL...BUT WITH SO MUCH PETTINESS IT'S DIFFICULT TO SEE THROUGH TO THE POSITIVES!
Right on, Tamra! I have really grown to love you this season. Your humor and bubbly personality are really out now. I think Simon caused you to have a lot of dissonance about your actions, thoughts, etc., and now that you are out of that you are able to live more freely, without worries. I used to have mixed feelings about you, but your past relationship explains why I felt that way. What this season has showed me is that you are beautiful on the inside and out. You are a good friend and give off such a fun vibe. I can't imagine how you must have felt when Gretchen was running her mouth about Vicki. If that was me, I probably would have flipped out. Good for you for keeping your cool! Who is the REAL woman of integrity now?
Tamra, Glad to see there is life after divorce. Your new guy is hot, Simon was so controlling. I hope you kick Geena's fat a@@, never like her. She needs to mind her own business and fix her pitiful life.
Wow! What a lady! I thought you handled the situation with gretchen well. I have to say grecthen was one of my favorite housewives but this season she has shown her true colors and I must say its a huge disappointment! You keep your head up and continue to be the lady I know you are
love u tamara!!! stop worryin about gretchen she seems lto me like shes not at all happy with her life
YOu are not a bad person, if you would of left the show oh those two would of said a lot more them what was coming out of Gretchens mouth . I was hoping you were not going to go off on Gretchen at the table and you just sat there baffled. You kept your cool, and showed them you are the stronger person. Good for you Tamra. This thing with Jeanna well that is what she is good at starting things ,and she now what button to push with you. I think she has a thing for Simon and that is why she is doing all this to you. You should of just walked away, and said I don't have time for your poor judgement in life. She is so unHAPPY IN HER LIFE that she was to pick on you because you are still filling down about your marriage to simon. If you look at JEANNA is being Simon right now he tells her what do and what to say to you. Jeanna likes a man to tell her what to do and what to say, and she found that in Simon!!!!!
I just thought how hypocritical it was of Alexis and Gretchen to be upset about Vicki stealing the show over something life threatening when just a few episodes before Alexis and Gretchen ruined dinner party over nonsense.
For anyone criticizing Tamara for not goin to the hospital... Do u realize w/ Tamara comes cameras... Maybe Vicki did not want cameras at the hospital while they were trying to figure out her scary symptoms.
Tamra, I am sorry Vicki was ill and in the hospital. But you seem to forget all the nasty things you both have said about all the ladies. You sure can dish it out, but you sure can't take it!
You are so classy Tamara! Watching this episode, i wanted to punch gretchen in her face!!! What a complete white trash- lost girl she is. Absolutely no manners for people or friends. Absolutely hate Gretchen!!!!
Team Tamara all the way!!!!!!!!xoxo
You of all people knew she had been bleeding.... why in the world did you not just get your purse and go to the hospital....... the producers would have understood about NO CAMERA'S in the hospital..... Yes I beleive what Gretchen said was UGLY.. and she did apologize and she did go see her in the hospital....... You should have been there NO MATTER what the assistant told you..... she really needed someone there...... a TRUE friend would not have thought about it twice......
This may seem random, but I'm baffled by viewers that insist on spelling your name Tamara. One lady, a few blogs ago, "corrected" you and said "It's spelled Tamara, Tamra"...something like that. Same thing happens to me. Some people, and some of them have known me for years, insist on spelling my name the way they think it should be spelled, even when sending me an email, where my name is on the email address. It's just comical and also annoying :D
Hi Tamra, I was really touched by your concern for Vicki. I instantly thought that you were worried it was some form of cancer and I hope you are relieved that that doesn't seem to be the case. :)
I can appreciate and applaud your friendship with Vicki, everyone should have friends that dedicated to them. I have to question your decision to share your text messages with the other ladies at the luncheon. It probably wasn't the place or the time to do so. Regardless of your feeling about Alexis, you did accept her invitation to attend this event that was clearly very important to her. Updating everyone on Vicki's health status was very disruptive as it drew attention away from the event, not to mention, did Vicki want you to share those very personal health issues with everyone else within ear-shot? That's not "Having her back".
I'm so proud of you this season... My bit of advice, stay away from the drama - be a good friend - stay strong for your kids and Eddie - Let Gretchen dig her own whole. I will be cheering for YOU!!!!
I just wanted to say watching you go through this horrible time with Simon gives me so peace that I'm not the only one. I too decided to seperate from an possive, controling and verbally abusive person and it has been one of the hardest and scarest times ever, I have two small children and I'm doing the best I can to shield them from all of his crazy actions and behavior. He has kicked my door in, constanly harrasses me on a dailey basis. My prayers are with you and your family and I truley hope things get better for you soon. I think Peggy has been a really positive addition to the show! You are my favorite and I feel I can relate to you more than anything. Keep your head up:)
You couldn't have won either way. If you had left they would have gotten mad that you walked out, and obviously they weren't ok with you staying either. I think you did what was best considering your friend requested that you wait before coming up to the hospital. How dare Gretchen assume the worst about Vicki like that. She should really be ashamed of herself and I can't wait to see if she apologizes in her blog. Something tells me she won't.
Tamra, Gretchen eventually had gone to the hospital, why didn't you? It is strange Vicki emailed you a picture of herself in the hospital, most people would not. This is not excusing Gretchens's callous remarks. Perhaps she is going through a difficult time in her life just as you did last season. You collect crosses, think about the meaning behind the cross.
Tamra, If I received a text from my bff, saying that she in the Hospital, I would've excused myself and apologized to Alexis, letting her know the situation, and left to go so about my Friend, instead of talking about it. You said that the Hospital was only 5 minutes away. That's just me.
Tamra. I must say your behavior has improved this Season. I thought Gretcen and Alexis were VERY insensative. When someone has a health issue, let go of petty opinions. I'm usually more of a Gretchen fan but I must say you gained brownie points with me on that episode. Gretchen...get over yourself and worry about your own life and Alexis...you seem to be getting a bit out of control with your pride this season.
I like Don, based on what I see on the show its Viki's fault she is being divorced. Maybe she shouldn't spend so much time at work. Don seems like a fun guy, but Viki is always going on business trips without Don and trips without Don. This is her fault based on what happens on the show.
You seem to forget you did walk out of the fashion show to talk to her assistant and did interupt the fashion show. But whatever
Tamra, You kick ass. I love you girl & love watching. While I'm lovin on ya, I'm loving your new boyfriend too!!! Keep kicking ass and calling it like you see it. Honesty seems to bother these girls (with the exception of Vicki & Peggy who has another hot man)... hmmmm... wonder why? Could it be because everything they have is fake? I'm sticking to that answer. Love to hear you talk about any reasons you might think they can't deal with truth and reality.
Tamra! You are by FARRRRRRRR my favorite! You go girl! Loving your personality and the way you do what you feel like and dont worry about what anyone else thinks! Your lack of narrowmindedness is awesome!
Tamra, it's true you could have excused yourself from the fashion show and rushed to the hospital, but the times that Vicki would most be needing a friend is when she is in recovery. So you actually did the right thing under the circumstances.
Gretchen showed no human compassion at all.
