Funny People

Alexis defends her blog and her friendship with Vicki, and thinks Heather's comedy isn't too funny.

Blog: Web site containing the writer's or group of writers' own experiences, observations, opinions, etc., and often having images and links to other Web sites.

I felt it was necessary to start my blog this week by stating the actual definition of "blog" because several people have asked me why I feel it necessary to always explain myself. Well, here ya have it. A blog written by me is for me to tell my side of the story and explain the chain of events and my interpretation of those events. So if you don't like hearing me "explain myself," kindly don't read my blog.

We start this week with Vicki visiting Tamra after her breast surgery, and the first thing I notice about this scene is that Tamra has an issue when she discovers Vicki and I are now friends. First of all, the friendship between Vicki and I wasn't immediate. It has taken three years for Vicki and I to GROW into our friendship. Yes, Vicki said some mean things about me in the past, and yes I wasn't always the kindest to her. However, we have both been very open about the fact that we wanted to try to make amends over three years, NOT OVERNIGHT!

Additionally, Vicki and I were trying to make amends last year, before Tamra ever thought about scheming a friendship with Gretchen, so don't let Tamra or Gretchen fool you that Vicki and I are only friends because those two became friends.

Replay last season, I clearly remember Tamra hating Gretchen, and Gretchen swore she'd never be friends with Tamra. . .

The friendship between Vicki and I is not out of convenience, nor is it contrived. Vicki and I have both said we have nothing to dislike the other person for, and we really enjoy being around each other. Not only that, but Vicki apologized to me for everything in the past and said that if Tamra hadn't been in her ear she would have gotten to know me and befriended me sooner. I told Vicki I was sorry for not understanding her sooner but I understand her now. . .And from that we BOTH moved forward. It's ironic to me that Tamra suddenly has an issue with Vicki becoming friends with me, but doesn't seem to feel it's strange what she is doing with Gretchen, and same goes for Gretchen. HELLO ladies, you two were talking smack on each other and are friends again! Bottom line is why can't we all just get along and be happy for each other? You know, in my other circles of friends, we're just friends, not frenemies. Moving on. . .

Shannon always makes me laugh! I couldn't think of one person I'd rather take glamping with me after being cooped up for 10 days! All I wanted to do was laugh and have fun, and Shannon already knows I pack heavy, so I knew she wouldn't mind me taking two suitcases for an overnight trip! I'm a girl that needs options!!! I really wanted this trip to be special for the ladies, with s'mores packets, scarves to match each of their personalities, and sweatshirts decorating each girl's room when they arrived. When all is said and done, I think camping is fun and I knew that getting the ladies away from the typical technology would allow us all to get to know each other better, and what better place than El Capitan where we can have the wilderness and a bed!!!

When Heather arrived to Vicki's to give me her super posh brush-off about the blowdryer, I honestly didn't care. If she needed to behave in a manner that is blatantly rude, then why come at all? This is my trip and she should have just declined since she has shown all season that she doesn't like me. Something seems phony about HER behavior.

Furthermore, behaving like that doesn't give you class -- class is something you gain through being humble and living with humility and grace. She's trying so hard to be sassy and funny, yet she forgets that being funny at someone else's expense every, single time you open your mouth is not funny, classy, nor appealing. It reveals a lot of insecurity when everything you say is a put-down to someone else.

Same goes for Heather's interrogation around the campfire about my home. Yes, I am renting, and we are content doing so!!! Last I checked, she hasn't seen my bank statement, so she really doesn't know anything about my financial status. But it's actually so sweet of Heather to become my financial planner overnight. I will not react to people who are unkind. My quote from last week says it all, "Be kind to unkind people because they need it the most." 

Let's move on to what is important, and that is that Shannon and I had a BLAST! My only advice in a situation like this is don't dance in the car 10 days after surgery! UGH headache! LOL!

Gretchen coughing and Slade telling her to only text him was hilarious. Slade should know by now he can't shut a girl up! We like to hear our own voices, even if it's an injured voice! Gretchen truly planned on glamping with all of us, yet I knew all of us would be talking around the campfire the entire night, which is why I wasn't surprised she didn't come.

I have been getting all of your tweets and Facebook comments on my nose, and yes, I can breathe better, THANK GOD! Thank you so much for all of your concern on how I'm doing, it means a lot. If you are interested in a consult with my doctor, call Cosmeticare for Dr. Niccole (949-718-6900). Aside from General Hospital, I have some other really exciting news coming soon I'll be announcing on my Facebook page and my Twitter.

XOXO

Keep Believing,

Lizzie: Tamra Doesn't Fight Fair

Lizzie thinks Tamra's comments about her children were meant to deflect from her own problems.

Happy Labor Day!!! I am going to make this blog short and sweet. It’s a holiday and I am going to be spending the day with family in Newport wearing a Sun Kitten and a smile. I hope you all are having a great holiday weekend.

To be honest, the second half of the Reunion was hard to watch. I think it got too ugly. I am not going to insult any of your intelligence in explaining this episode. We all know that misery loves company, and "projection" is as easy to spot as a $2 dollar bill. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that everything miserable that comes out of Tamra's mouth is a direct reflection of what is going on in her life. In my opinion, children are off limits. It's quite apparent that Tamra does not fight fair and when all else fails she will throw your kids, marriage, and even your body under the bus in an attempt to hurt you. We filmed the reunion for over 10 hours and after listening to so much ugliness my heart just couldn't take it anymore.

I do not regret telling Shannon all the things that Tamra said about her. Everything I shared with Shannon was something that happened and was said on camera. I didn't take anything and create unnecessary drama. I would do it again in a heartbeat and I would think my friends would do the same for me. I simply did not know the truth about Tamra. Danielle told me all the things Tamra said about me. That is why after my birthday I was so hurt by her. It's hard for viewers to understand because these things weren't in the show. She could have called me and said she wasn't coming. I called her after sitting on the bus for over an hour. The next day she made fun of me to Danielle, in addition to asking plenty of questions looking for negative details regarding my party.

On that one-year free membership to Cut Fitness: Let's delve into this shall we? I was the one that contacted Tamra days after my party. She did not contact me to give me present. I had invited Tamra, Eddie, Danielle, Joe, Heather, and Terry to the Kentucky Derby and Tamra was the only person that had not sent in the RSVP. It was past the deadline and it was getting borderline rude at this point. Tamra, in fact, was making fun of the Kentucky Derby and the charity event that would be hosting us to Danielle. So, I reached out to Tamra regarding the Kentucky Derby and she texted me back saying, "I want to give you a free membership to CUT for your birthday." Tamra knows I am already a member to a sports club and that was the last I heard of this "free membership." I never received any kind of certificate or card for membership. I suppose she thought I would have the gall to show up and say, "I got a text message from Tamra for a free membership!" It's almost laughable. Needless to say, I don't go to her gym and she didn't attend the Kentucky Derby with me.

There is nothing else to say regarding the Shag, Marry, Kill game that I haven't already discussed in great length in any of my previous blogs. I said the word "marry" and that's that. Tamra even glared at me on the way out of the Valentine's Party and repeated it. "Marry you?" Tamra has said multiple times she couldn't even remember because she drank too much and there are even text messages where she says it too. Her story changes continually, like the words that come out both sides of her mouth.

During the Reunion, Tamra said many more hurtful things that you didn't see. She went on to talk about my son Preston and my marriage. We all remember the episode in the park where Preston hit me on the head with his elephant. He was asleep in the car and he had a mini temper tantrum. He was three -- it happens. I would assume most mothers have had it happen at some point. In addition, my husband and I got in a fight on my birthday. I feel awful about it, yet it made us closer. I just wanted what every woman wants -- to feel special because of her man. I am a big time believer in learning from your mistakes and that won't ever happen again. However none of those incidents had anything to do with Tamra. But on her quest to hurt everyone, she managed to drag in some irrelevant topics. I know it's all to deflect from what's going on in her life and to make someone else look bad. . .but it does hurt nonetheless. My babies and my marriage are my life so I guess her goal was to attack the things closest to my heart because she can't fight fair.

I hope you enjoyed this season and I hope you had a fabulous summer!!! The fall is my absolute favorite time of year, so I say bring on football and cooler weather.
