Truth Prevails

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

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?"

Does it piss me off? Yes! But there is a logical side of me that's learning to say, "Who cares what they say!" What I am learning is that it takes a stronger person to ignore the lies and rumors that they are saying about me. And my natural reaction is to lash back in attempt to defend myself for something that has no merit. Eddie is teaching me to walk away and rise above the nonsense, no matter if I think I'm right. Most of the time it's just not worth responding to garbage!

I called Gretchen out two years ago after running into her at a party while her fiance was in the hospital. I lost respect for her from that day forward, and due to the string of events following thereafter (off camera), I had no choice but to expose the truth. At the Season 4 reunion filming I was asked to tell my side of the story. It blows my mind that she is still harping about it today. Gretchen to this day will never admit the truth and I could care less. But think about this, if it was all a lie, why would she still be defending herself in court?

The only person that came away with a victory that day was Andy. It was a rather entertaining season. 

I was glad to have such a level-headed addition this season. Peggy is a calm voice of reason and is able to see right through the manipulation. It was hard to see Vicki's divorce play out on film. I don't wish this experience on anyone. I am just glad I was able to be there for her. Vicki and Donn both deserve to be happy.

Thank you for all your support this season! Farewell.
