Alexis, if you look into Tamra's eyes and the wrinkles that surround them you can see how deeply wounded she is. She chooses to cope with the hurt with anger, jealousy, and ruthless attacks on you, because you are better than her, and she knows it. You keep your man happy which keeps you happy. You have a great family and hers has been broken time and time again. She and Terry, who acts like a gossiping housewife himself, believe that you are a fake or a phony because they don't know that people in the world can truly be as sincere and as kind as you. You are the perfect woman, and I aspire to have your genuineness and kindness one day.
Until Tamra learns to accept kindness and happiness into her life, she will not be comfortable with you.
Heather and Terry on the other hand are just ridiculous people. Just ridiculous. For them to freak out at their own "name change party" in front of their guests is tacky. Plastic Surgery is a trade, like carpentry. It doesn't say much about his intelligence, just his bank account. I can't believe that Terry and his wife, Heather, stood by and watched everything happen as if it was a personal show of theirs.
They are shallow and unkind people. They are pretentious without reason, and subconsciensously resent your inner beauty.
You'll be fine. You are happy, kind, and unfortunately we don't have many people like that anymore - so people think it's all fake - but I know it isn't fake.
