Pot Kettle Black

Alexis admits she isn't proud of some of her behavior this episode, but she also thinks a few people were being hypocritical.

I have to be honest, I did not like myself this episode. I don't know who that was, or what I was thinking. I was making jokes, but some of them sounded sarcastic instead of funny. I think sometimes in life when we sense a change coming, we have a tendency to act a little off key. Maybe I was trying to make light of things I shouldn't have been, but I meant no harm, truly. My momma always said, "If you don't have anything positive to say, just keep your mouth closed!" Lesson learned on that one. (Thanks Mom!)

I think we have all been in a situation where we overreact. I just wasn't expecting that to be Tamra overreacting to Vicki and Eddie laughing together in Catalina! I hit rewind after that scene at least three times to see if I missed something, but I didn't think Vicki and Eddie were out of line. In my opinion, they were all carrying on the same way.

I thought it was out of left field when Slade mentioned he wanted to do a comedy act, but I also felt like Gretchen could have supported him a little more. I thought it was very entrepreneurial of Slade to want to do something that was out of his comfort zone. Gretchen said last year that Slade "schlepped" her things, so I think it's great that he is getting his own groove back.

Back to Tamra and Eddie talking on the boat ride -- Eddie says he thinks they should stop drinking because that was the main cause of their fight. That is probably a good idea, but good luck getting Tamra to agree! Then Tamra switches gears and says now she doesn't care about Vicki and Eddie touching. . . What? Is anyone else confused?

When Gretchen and I were in the limo, I was sincerely worried for Gretchen jumping right back into her friendship with Tamra. I remember everything Gretchen went through last year, and I am concerned that it could all happen again. A bracelet and acting all chummy-chummy; it just felt like there was another motive, an agenda. Then we see Gretchen and Tamra going to the sex shop together. . .couldn't they have kept it at coffee? LOL!

Let me be the first to say I was so excited about Heather's painting party. What a new and refreshing idea! A party with a purpose! I loved the low-carb menu, and I loved Timree! I want to personally apologize to Heather for calling her "pretentious." I have always considered her "buttoned-up," but never pretentious. I like Heather, I think she is funny and has a good heart. During the party that evening, I thought we were all joking and having a great time; however, it definitely seemed like there was friction looking back.

First of all, when all of us were discussing Tamra and Gretchen's "sex shop" visit, I felt Heather could have simply walked away from the conversation if she really didn't want to talk about any of it. I will be the first to admit that I get uncomfortable with that kind of talk, too. If things get too uncomfortable, I will excuse myself or change the subject.

When we were all painting, Vicki and I were laughing and teasing about being new BFFs, and getting Vicki a bracelet. I was completely shocked to hear Gretchen say under her breath that I was competing. Of all people, I thought she was my true friend. I didn't get the memo that it's OK for her and Tamra to make their jokes whenever they want, but Vicki and I cannot.

But come on! It's a little awkward that Tamra gave Gretchen a bracelet after two years of putting Gretchen through hell!! Was that Gretchen's hazing gift?

At the end of the night when Heather told Terry that he wasn't scoring any bedroom points, I was teasing her when I reminded her that she doesn't talk about those things. Those were her words. No one should really care if she does or doesn't talk about those things!

Tamra getting all huffy and saying that I'm trying to take credit for her and Gretchen getting back together is pretty unbelievable. If Tamra is going to make accusations that I'm jealous of Gretchen and Tamra becoming friends, I will comment back. And how quickly Tamra forgets that two years ago I did try to get those two to move past their fight. I don't need credit for that. That's just Tamra looking for drama once again, but she won't get it from me, because I'll just keep being happy for her and wishing her well, and that just kills her.

The saddest part of this episode for me was watching Gretchen make fun of me behind my back and chime in with Tamra throughout the evening. True friends just don't do that. That hurts.

The real kicker was when Tamra called Vicki jealous when Tamra just got jealous of Vicki and Eddie touching the night before??? That sure was the pot calling the kettle black. Vicki not saying goodbye to Tamra shocked me too, though! I think Vicki was hurt and felt disrespected.

And last but not least, I dedicated my shoe painting to my twins, and it is hanging on their wall in their bedroom, so thank you Heather and Timree!

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.
