No More Drinking and Kissing

Tamra puts all the Fernanda drama to rest.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommys out  there. I wanted to share my favorite Mother's Day quote: "Being a mother is one of highest paying jobs, since the payment is pure love." Thank you Sidney, Spencer, Ryan, and Sophia for this very special day. I love you so much.   

I was a little more than shocked at lunch when Lynne told me Fernanda told her we shared a drunken kiss. I adore Fernanda and think she is a beautiful girl inside and out. But I didn't think she would go on national TV and talk about it after she asked me if she could and I said no. This was something that happened over a year ago, and she never brought up until she was on the show. In my mind I didn't think the kiss was that big of a deal. But given the fact that she is gay probably makes all the difference in the world to her. Even though I don't like how she exposed it, I am very sorry if I sent her mixed signals. 

I have decided that there will be no more drinking and kissing friends! Eddie thinks that would be a good idea too. At lunch with Fernanda I said something that didn't quite come out how I intended, "Most lesbians don't look like you," which was a very ignorant comment on my part. I should have said, "Most woman don't look like you." Fernanda is a very beautiful and sexy woman.  

Slade talking with his mom was a very defining scene. Slade says he has a job other than following his girlfriend around, yet his own mom has no idea what her son does. Gretchen has told him in a past episode that selling his art and making some money is better than him currently making no money. So what is it? I personally agree with Gretchen on this one. I hate to hear someone complain about something and not do a thing about it. Being a single mom and working my butt off to make money, I have little respect for that. Sure I have the option to sit back and do nothing and collect child support and alimony from my ex husband, but I choose to work. The easy way is not always the good way in life. It's one thing to be out of work for a few months, but a few years?  If I was ever short on money or unemployed I know my ex would help me and the kids out, as I would too. I hope Slade cleans up his act and learns from all the bad press.  

Going wine tasting in Temecula was so much fun. It was my first time there, and I can't wait to go back. Peggy has family in Temecula and was married at one of the wineries, so she was able to show us around. I knew Vicki was a little upset with Donn for drinking too much at Peggy's party, but I didn't know it was that bad. I think Peggy asked Vicki twenty questions about Donn, and Vicki was having a hard time composing herself. That's one of the things about Vicki that I love, she wears her heart on her sleeve. 

Vicki is right, Peggy sounds just like Alexis when she talks! I can't tell them apart on the phone. When I said Alexis is jealous/competitive with Peggy and wanted to be her and roll around in her sheets, I didn't mean it in a sexual way but in an "I want to be you" way. I couldn't understand it in the past, but after the breaking news on Watch What Happens Live last week, now we might know why Alexis would be jealous of Peggy.  

It made me laugh so hard to hear that Jim does not want to be around the group of girls anymore. Isn't that the same line Jeana used when she left last season? whatever the truth is, no one really cares to be with him. Jim has to be the rudest man I have ever met in my life. He looks down on people and is so disrespectful even to his own wife and children. Alexis seems to constantly make excuses for his behavior and talk about him as if he is her master.

I think both Peggy and Alexis looked hot in their photo shoots. They both have smoking mommy bodies and should be very proud. Way to rock it, girls!

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!
