Tamra's sympathizes with Vicki about her divorce and comments on the fashion show drama.

on May 23, 20110

Fernanda made the smartest comment ever! Why were they spending so much time talking about Vicki not being there? Finally I got a call from Heidi, Vicki's assistant, telling me that Vicki was throwing up from medication and did not want to see anyone. I think Gretchen's comments were not only self-centered but mind boggling. I would never think someone was faking a hospital visit just so they didn't have to support a friend. Who thinks like that? I think Gretchen knew she looked foolish when everyone told her she was out of line. 

Some of you might have heard how I started on the SENSA diet/life style after Patti turned me on to it. SENSA reached out to me and asked me to be a spokesperson for their products.

First off, i love you, Vicki and Peggy!! Second, i kind of do see gretchen's point about you being in her business and then now jeana being in yours, but i also do believe what you said was true and thats why shes mad because you put the truth out there. Just rise above it and take care of your kids and be happy with your boyfriend. Show her no attention because thats all she wants.

Tamara, you have grown a lot this season. You have risen above the back stabbing that is so prominent on the show. Good luck in your ventures!! Just one more thing, it doesn't look like Gretchen is ever going to forgive you unless you come clean with her....just do it and be the bigger person.

Tamra - always in your corner. You make me laugh and I get that you use your humor and wit to get you through hard times. Re Gretchen - she uses her words like arrows and then laughs everything off. I hope that comes up in the reunion, especially her comments about Eddie at dinner which I found particularly offensive. It broke my heart to hear her use stereotypes with earshot of you and Eddie. Those kinds of remarks are OK but you can't bust on Slade? hmmmm

Love the RHOC. You're all so beautiful but you are the most beautiful one. I love watching your fun-loving, smart, sweet self. I was SO happy you put Jeanna in her place. She was toxic to your life. Plese stay away from her. Congrats on Eddie. He's a sweetie, a real man, a gentleman and very kind. You just do you, love your family, Eddie and friends and good riddance to that mean, controlling Simon. Perhaps he and Jeanna should wed.....lol.

Why didn't you visit Vicki at the hospital?

Regarding the wine fight, if you think back, Jeanna didn't fight back when pushed. When I saw this I understood why she is taking your husbands side. She obviously doesn't defend herself when abused. She may have grown up with it and learned to live with it. Many woman are like that, look at how long she lived with her abusive husband and I promise you that if he asked she would take him back. She has issues and as much as I am disappointed with your friendship with Vickey (she's a user), I am proud that you stood up for yourself. You just watch your back with Vickey because she will turn on you when she realizes you have something she doesn't have and that's a happy relationship. She's done it to everyone else who was happy in their relationship. You can do better than her, and if you choose to stay friends with her please talk her into getting therapy.

Go Team Tamara, Vicki, and Peggy! The other OC housewives are so passive aggressive. They really need to get out of high school.

Oh the irony. You had your nose so far in Gretchen's business, making judgements about her relationship based on what others gossiped about and now you have the gall to complain about anyone doing the same to you. Karma is a real mean woman.

I feel sorry for Don. He deserves better than Vicky. Here's a hint for your friend. You can't claim to be interested in your marriage if you never bother to make time for it. And Don kept hanging in there while Vicky continually put him down. I hope he finds someone who deserves him.

Tamra- Just stay true to yourself and know that they can't compare to you or Vicki ever in their wildest dreams and they know that! You are the better person and everyone that matters see's that! All of America see's it! Just keep living the life that you have and know that nothing else matters. Love your family, Eddie, and your friends, then no one can touch your happiness!

TAMRA IS MY FAVORITE HOUSEWIFE EVERRRRRR!!!! You have a great balance of fun time/mommy time/BF time and everything in between!!! Keep it up!!!!! xoxoxo P.S... thought you handled Gretchen's comments very well! I know I was thinking you were going to rip her a new one, but you didn't... kept it classy! :)

these hard times you're going through are obviously the karma you've earned. maybe the high horse you're on is trying to buck you off. look up the word "hypocrite". and take a moment to recognize your moral filter is malfunctioning.

What some of you may not know, and in Gretchen's defense, she did go to the hospital afterwards and apologized to Vicki for her insensitive words. I too was shocked by Gretchen's comments, but after hearing her explanation on Watch What Happens, I kind of saw where she was coming from. Honestly, if I was so ill that I was being prepped for surgery, the last thing i'd be doing is sending people pictures of my IV....I thought that was a bit odd on Vicki's part. Then again, I think Vicki is an insufferable attention whore JMHO.

A note for Tamara: You used to be my favorite housewife....I loved your kindness and big heart....you were thoughtful and appeared to be a genuinely loving person, but this season you've become a mean girl.....you never seem to have anything nice to say anymore. I want the old Tamara back. I'm sure your marriage with Simon was difficult and I feel for you, but clearly he brought out a kinder, gentler side of you because this season you appear to be harsh and angry. I hope you find the happiness and peace you're searching for and with that, I hope your sweetness starts to show once again.

Tamra, Stay true to Vicki and Peggy. You owe no one an explanation about Simon or whatever went on behind closed doors! Its a "he said, she said" and there are never any winners in that game, so don't play! Jeana pushes your buttons all the time, walk away! Shes not worth it! As you can probably tell, I've "been there, done that" and the above is what worked for me-give it a try! As far as the other women go, they just seem like a bunch of high school bullies!! Rise above, girl. You, Vicki and Peggy are wonderful people! Hey, we ALL gossip, just keep it real! Love you all!!

Why are you always trying to recapture something you lost...your youth. Simon had his faults but at least he acted his age. I have yet to hear you say what role Ryan played in the demise of your marriage. You trash talk everyone and then expect no one to have doubts or judge you or Vicki. Clearly, Vicki cares very little for most of the other housewives on the show. She has been very verbal against Alexi's and Gretchen. While Gretchen should have kept her comments to herself I can understand her questioning whether things were true or not. You took marital advice from someone who was not in a heatlhy marriage. You got into another relationship before the ink was dry on your divorce papers, you judge others harshly, and yet you try to paint yourself as PERFECT. This show has become a waste of time.

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.

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.

truth.

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

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.

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.

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, 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.

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,

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:)

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 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".

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. :)

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

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......

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.
