Cast Blog: #RHOC

Cute Is a Four-Letter Word

Heather defends calling Gretchen cute and her acting career.

For the record, I had never seen RHOC till last week! Lots of discussion about this online -- but it's the truth!

Well, overall I thought this episode was very good and very entertaining. The party at Vicki's went better than I had thought it would go. There were a few moments I'd like to comment on. . .

I told Sarah (Gretchen's friend) that her boyfriend needed to essentially "put a ring on it" that was part of a larger conversation. Sarah has a 12-year-old (lovely) son. I feel like she should have gotten a firm commitment (ring) from her (wealthy) boyfriend before she moved into his house with her son. You can't "play house" when there are children involved. That was my point.

Then there was the story of my engagement to my husband. . . well listen, when you are on your way to Paris, you are kind of hoping for the Eiffel tower proposal, not five hours into an 11 hour flight when your makeup has seeped into your skin, your contact lenses are dry, a kid is kicking your seat, and you are watching a bad movie on a tiny screen while drinking from a plastic cup and eating stale snack mix. However, I was thrilled to be marrying Terry. . .and that's the important part of the story. . .

Now, we move on to Gretchen. At the party I called her cute a couple of times. She let Slade know this was not OK, and he thought I was jealous of her. Hmmmm. First of all, I know cute is a four letter word, but when did it become a "FOUR LETTER WORD"!?! Gretchen and I had a few nice moments together when we went to the bathroom (OK, that sounds weird, but you know what I mean) so, when we got back to the table, I was genuinely enjoying her company. Tamra had scared me so badly about all of the ladies before the party, I was relieved that I was getting along with everyone. So I said she was cute! BTW, she is cute. I meant it as a compliment. For the record Sladey-Slade, I had a great time in my 20s and 30s. I'm very excited to be in my 40s and I'm in a great place in my life. I have no desire to go backwards. .  Just saying. . .

The dinner -- well, I thought Vicki did a great job with dinner. She was trying something a little different and fun. I thought some of the girls were rude about the food. My only issue was the presentation. You can't bring out industrial plastic bags to serve crawfish... That was a poor choice . It would have been cooler if they had piled them directly on butcher paper on the table. Just a thought. . .

So Alexis. . .just because I'm not Angelina Jolie doesnt mean I'm not an actress! Jeez! Check if you'd like my credits (which I need to update, but at least you get an idea).

The segment of my family getting ready to go out was so funny to me! Terry is such a goofball! He tells such corny jokes! Such a ham!

Lastly -- and forgive me if this is too immodest -- I love watching my kids on camera. They are the lights of my life and I am blessed to have them. Can't wait to see what next week brings!

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.
