Fashion Emergency

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

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. 

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. If you have any questions about how it works please contact  me on Facebook (

Shannon Settles the Score

If Andy's asking "What's the score, Shannon Beador?" Shannon thinks she's definitely won.

This is Blog #20, my last Blog for the season! The past year was been a wild ride for both me and for my family. I have come to many realizations about myself, made lifelong friends, experienced some tough moments, and embarked on a path to a more peaceful self. So to use Andy’s phrase, “What's the score, Shannon Beador?” I would say without a doubt that I have definitely won.

I am happy that the viewers got a little glimpse into my sometimes unconventional ways! For me, it's all about good energy. I love that Vicki’s business has clearly benefited from trying feng shui with Elaine Wright. If you can't get hurt, there is no reason to try anything holistic. If you actually benefit, why wouldn't anyone want to go the natural way? If my children tend to feel better after seeing Dr. Moon and not have to take antibiotics, then I am a happy mom. It's all about creating a healthy balance!

I am an open book and am often criticized for it, but I am who I am. I don't know many couples married for 13 years that have a perfect relationship. Everyone has ups and downs, and although it may be difficult and require effort, it is possible to move through it and make things better. I have said it many times in the season that divorce is not an option. I will always fight for my marriage and my family. It truly touches my heart that so many fans have been and continue to root for David and I. I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your positive comments! Thank you!

Do Tamra and Heather truly want to move forward and potentially develop a friendship with me? Only time will tell. But for now, I have amazing friends surrounding me, including Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek. And most importantly, I have been blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. That is where all of my energy is focused.

I will never forget this entire year, both the good and the bad, because each moment took me on the journey to where I am today. And today, I am in a phenomenal and happy place. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
