Tamra shares her thoughts on the reunion and everyone's low blows.

on Jun 14, 20110

After watching the reunion show, I laid in bed that night thinking for hours about how sad all the women appeared when discussing what happened this season. So many things went through my head, and the one thing that stood out most was how the truth has always, and will always, prevail.

Looking at each one of us, we all had so much stress on our faces that some of us were almost unrecognizable. I know that no one wanted to be there that day. The relationship between us girls has become so toxic, and we have resorted to saying things we would never say about people we call friends. The truth is most of us are not friends.

It's obvious that no one should be in anyone's personal business, and it makes me sick that we all have stooped to that level. I know in my heart that Slade's child support issues are not my business, but I am not about to sit there and listen to Slade and Gretchen accuse me of cheating on Simon, claiming Eddie was Simon's best friend, that I have no regard for my kids, or creating unfounded rumors about Eddie without even knowing him.

So I think to myself, "Why do they think it's OK for them to bash me about my personal life? Is it for the sole purpose of getting attention? Is it to get so much attention that the lie becomes a twisted truth? Perhaps it's to take the attention off of him and make me look like I am the only one talking about him?"

Love,love,love Tamra!!!!!So glad you are holding your own and seem to be developing a fabulous new life with Eddie!and lookin good on it girl!we are only season 6 in the UK,and i cant wait to see what happens next,have loved this show since ITV bought it to us here.Slade is a dead beat and leeches of Gretchen blatantly!(clearly a wannabe housewife for sure,she could do sooooo much better).Alexis defo has a distorted view point on the subject of her husband.Vicki is great and makes me laugh much like you do but sad things didnt work out with Don,i liked him.Peggy i didnt think i'd like to start with but i do,she grew on me as the series progressed and it was no way her place more to tell Alexis about dating Jim,he's her other half so should'a done it!!!Tamra you are hysterical,wish i could have a night out with ya!!!Keep being YOU!!!!xxx

Tamara needs to remember what comes anruod goes anruod and what is happening to her is what she keeps doing to everyone else. And that is making up lies and stuff and putting it in the news. How you treat people is how you will be treated and she is getting her just reward by Jenna standing up with Simon in this divorce. She put Gretchen through hell by her lies and now she is feeling what that is like and she does not like it. You have dug your hole Tamara , now lay in it.I think Jenna and Don would be great together. Vicki was always so hard on Don. She put him down every chance she could. She never gave Don any time in their marriage and always took trips without him. How can that be healthy. If I treated my husband like she treated Don. My husband would not of stood for it.

I think they might. cept now that you mentioned it I wnoder if Alexis had anything to do with Fernando not being a big part of the show. Maybe she wanted to be the only hard body in the bunch? a little threatened? Glad Lynn was able to keep her membership up. That's another thing that I find hard to swallow is these heifers that loose their homes, boats,cars and integrity but still pay beaucoup bucks just to join a dang fitness club. Hells bells theses women ever head of a shake weight?!? Dang, it couldn't make em look any more stoopier than they already look pullin dat crap.

Tamra I love you and think it took big ones to go out on your own searching for true happiness. Simon was a bully and so jealous,he wouldn't let you shine or grow as we all need to do. You gi e all women hope to get out of unhappy relationships and search for true love. Good for you!!!

Tamra,

The season just started and you are starting with the dama that you swore you didn't like at the end of last season. You are obsessed with Alexis. And because she ses straight through you she is naturally an enemy. You and that "tired oldVicku" need to leave the show. Gretchen, Alexis and the new girl can handle it...Peggy is brain-dead.

Tamra I like how you stick up for yourself. you are a strong woman and I admire that about you. There will always be jealous and insecure people who will hate on you. You will be happy with the choices you have made I can tell. Good luck to you and Eddie and if he don't treat ya right I will!! Luv ya girl;)

Tamra You are by far the least of the Hottest Housewives. Look at the cast. Grechen has you beat by a mile. You have to get some weight off and soak up a lot of botox. While your at it tone down the potty mouth you are so low budget and of course without class. I sure don't blame Simon for ditching you. What you did to Jeana and how you acted at the end of the season party was outrages. It was in about as poor taste as your bathtub act. Eddie is nothing to look at Next to Simon as far as I can see. Looks like you got the worst end of the deal when Simon left. Leave Jeana alone she is the only one on that show that is genuine and real. She has a heart as where yours has turned cold.

Let's just say I'm a Housewife but not on TV
Let's just say I'm a Housewife but not on TV

Tamara,

I'll start with you look fabulous with the make up and I'm certain with the natural raw look. You just have that smile.

For what ever reason you had an inspire to get on this housewife show, and did it for a reason. I can see this.

I'm young as yourself, been married since 16 and I feel every motion you and the other housewives go through. Experienced many ugly and beautiful things in my life.

Though now I to question my own destiney. I wan't to escape and let myself out of my body and truely be who I believe I am.

I enjoy the show, But do know it's just a reality show the directors need to make a profit. Do now, what only you in your heart knows.

GOOD LUCK!

I am so happy for u and I love love love Eddie for u. He is so handsome and seems so calming and great to everybody. That is truly hard to find, especially for us 40 somethings. Sometimes one door needs to shut for others to open. I believe that this is true for Vicky as well. There is nothing worse than merly just existing..then to have it all filmed at the same time so people can judge is pure BS! I know u choose to sign up for the show but I am sure it is much harder than people can imagine. U r the only one that is normal, that can humble herself enough to just be honest, and not have to be made up with a ton of make up 24 hours a day. I am alot like u, I tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve, and I tell it like it is most of the time and sometimes people dont know how to take it. Vicky is the same way, she is who she is and people want things to be candy coated and that isnt reality. Anyhow, I love u and I love the show and I only wished I live in OC so I can show thoze bitches just what a real women is! Tanya ~ Southern Cali

well to start of just wanted to say that before you judge the other girls life peek at your actions first. you dont like it when they bring out your personal life but yet it seems ok for to bring out everybody ellse out? mmm nice ... you say that Gina always lies but yet you didnt seem to tell the right story...seems like your only happy when some one is miserable because you sure get a nice laugh out of it.. but its about you its a no no... kind of hypocritical dont you think

You used to be my favorite...actually, the only one that I could tolerate. But you changed, and became pretty much just like the rest of them. I hope you can get back to who you were before...that was a really likable person.

The truth prevails!..You wouldn't know the truth if Gretchen and the rest of the women hit you over the head w/ it. You and Vicki live in your own version of the truth.

Dear Tamra, I just wanted to let u know I think ur a great person and friend when other friends are not stabbin u in the back! I am so happy that u r now happy in ur life.

Enjoy ur life, family and friends and don't worry about the other women who envy u and try to cause drama in ur life. U are a beautiful and strong woman and I hope u stay that way!!! Keep doing u sweet heart and show those bitchies ur better then they are!!! A Big Fan, Catherine

Tamra you truly live in a dream world. You told everyone at the party that Gina pushed you. Do you not remember that you threw a paper in her face FIRST...... She only responded to your first blow and rightly so. Then you told everyone that she tried to push you in the pool. Not so she said she could throw your skinny ass in the pool. You threw the drink in her face. You are just sooooo classy. NOT. You are unbelievable. DO you think you might try telling the truth and owning what you did.

Love you on the show, Tamra! And please don't worry about Gretchen the schnauzer, or Alexis the sheep; those two have nothing on you and should not affect your life. You know that Gretchen is nothing more than a yard dog and barks at everything that moves. You're much better than that and I love watching you and Vicki and Peggy. All best for the next season!

I so love you and loved you this season for real girl! You and eddie make a rockin couple for real! You showed your true colors when jeana popped up in at vickies house I thought she was literally going to throw u in the pool! But i am glad that she didnt you are to pretty to be thrown in the pool like if you were some kind of animal or toy. I am glad that vicki and you are very united and that you both stand up tall and try to move on with the problems and drama that both of u are going through ! we need to find vicki a new man or bf like for real thats if she wants to . If she doesnt want to and if she wants to be alone and single i can understand her and agree with her. good luck and god bless!

I think Tamra and Vicki speak a lot of sense on this show.I can see right trough Gretchen and Alexis but I think Peggy is nice and will be a dear friend. Well done for having the courage to leave Simon and hope you have lots of fun with Eddie, he seems like a good guy. Rise above the nastiness from G and A, stay true to what you believe in and let their silly games play out. The truth will always come out in the end. Much love from the UK :o)

I love RHOOC, it's the best of all the 'Housewives' shows. It's a show and we all have our favourites and ones we love to hate. I personally love you in the show and it would not be the same without your sense of fun and mischevious behaviour. As for that Jeana woman thinking she knows what went on behind closed doors, well, what would she know. It was clear to all viewers that you were married to a controlling man and you made the right choice for you and your kids to get out of that marriage. Good luck to you and Eddie, what a hunk you lucky girl. Can't wait for the next season. Hope Vikki is doing o.k.? As for Alexis, bless her, she tries to live like Jesus, Really! Don't recall Jesus having botox and a boob job but whatever gets you through the day sweetie. Love the show.

Hey Tamra, Just finished watching series 6 in the UK (gutted it's over) I think you are amazing, you are not pretentious like Gretchen and Alexis. You seem more grounded than the others, and seem to wear your heart on your sleeve, I love how you and Vicky are so close and are not afraid to be "real" in front of each other, it shows real friendship. Jeana was totally out of order and deserved what she got at Vicky's party, I would of shoved her in the pool (haha) Good luck in the future and I really hope things work out for you and Eddie, He seems to be a wonderful loving man, and SO HOT! (lucky woman). Hold your head up high and keep concentrating on your own life with the kids, You are by far my favourite housewife!! Team Tamra!! :) x

Well i don't really know what to make of you this session!!! You have gone from bad to worse!! I felt embarrassed for you as you were making such a show of yourself! Will you ever learn to keep you opinions to yourself and keep your nose out of other peoples lives!! My god your life really needs sorting out before you but in on anyone else's!!!!

Tamra - you rock girl ! I've just finished watching Season 6 (in UK) and I am so sad that it's finished ! I admire you so much because you stand your ground, you speak your mind. You've brought life into this show and I wish Eddie, your kids and yourself all the very best for your future together. You are a wonderful loving family and you deserve the very best of everything. Love, Love, Love. xxxx

I am in the UK and have just finished watching series 6. Your Eddie speaks such sense! I too used to have to be the first one there to put people right about the lies and rumours before anyone would maybe think bad of me but not any more!! For some years now I have just let the gossipers get on with it because the truth always comes out eventually and then the person gossiping looks rather daft! Yep, rise above it Tamra!! You are a better person than to fall into nasty traps. As long as you know the truth, walk out the door with your head held high and be happy!!

Eddie seems to be such a nice guy, make sure you keep him!!

I really like Tamara but I believe that she needs to leave Gretchen and others alone and live their lives. Tamara has a good heart and cares a great deal about people but sometimes she gets involved in others lives that are non of her business. I would like to see a kinder more understanding Tamara towards everyone.

Hey Tamra

I think everyone of the girls on the show are all the same... You're all beautiful, strong willed, opinionated women (in a good way!). Although you are all at blame for the 'bitchiness' that goes on on the show. Yes you're complaining about the other girls making opinions about your relationship with Eddie and the truth about your marriage with Simon.. But you did the same with Gretchen. So in all fairness you should now understand what you put Gretchen through and apologize (as should she) and really mean it. You're both in much happier places now, so why not move on together?

The past is the past... Cannot be changed, but can be forgotten.

Hi,

I would like to say is that you meddle into other lifes TOO MUCH for no reason n u shud butt out! as they say what goes around does cum around :/

you come across a person that people would either hate o love.

you get too personal with other housewife such as gretchen life, why? u dnt like her then why do u always have to comment about her! you shud get on wid ur own life n jus chil wid those u like n get along with.

i dont get why u always ave to make lil sly comments here on there.

no-one perfect! especialy not u o me o others!

you have an amazing family n amazing partner u shud value that n jus get on with life n not waste time wid bitchnes, life too short.

take care.

Hey Tamra

I'm a new fan and it took a while for you to grow on me, but you really crack me up. You're cool in a nuts kind of way. Everyone should have a friend like you (now, post-Simon!). You were so up-beat and positive at the beginning of this season, it was great to see. Don't allow yourself to get sidetracked by the housewife drama - you're one of those people who can make her own fun. Focus on your friendships and the things that matter, and everything else will fall into place -eventually! Eddie's such a beautiful guy, and you two are so good together, you should be using this relationship to draw you away from all the drama, rather than getting him sucked into it.

Take care AP

Wow. Just watched the Season Finale on Slice up here in Canada last night. I have never felt inclined to respond to any series, reality or otherwise. I was so taken aback by both your behaviour and attitude this season that I wanted to reach out and provide you with one suggestion. Try reading Dr. Amen's book "Change your Brain, Change your Life". I think you will find yourself in there and through that perhaps some inner-awareness. Life is not about responding, it is about self-control. The best Tamara is in there, but you have some issues with your response to situations that stops her from coming out. If you truly want a different life, transform your thinking to guide you in a new direction.
