My Cup of Tea

Heather discuess the bowling party disaster and her problems with Sarah.

It's Spring Break, and in the words of Vicki "WOOHOO!!!"

We are in Cabo with our amazing friends @lisaheil and @davidaugustinc (remember his stunning clothes from last episode?) with our broods. SUCH fun!!! I am halfway into my cocktail as I write this, so please forgive me if I'm not making sense.

Wow. Interesting episode all around. Here goes. . .

It was lovely having Tamra over for a glass of wine to "debrief " on the mud run! She is so fun and easy to be with. I was bummed she couldn't make it to the bowling party because of her surgery. What will I do without her?!?

Tamra is definitely worried about Brooks. I'm not seeing it, but Tamra has known Vicki a long time and she is genuinely concerned about the relationship. She is being a good friend -- but I don't think it's a good idea to question someone's man. This might not end well.

Having said that, the lunch between Vicki and Brooks at Canaletto's was odd. The greeting cards are becoming a bit much. He seems to be trying a little too hard. Maybe he's just nervous around her? She's a strong, successful woman, and I know that can be intimidating to a lot of men. We have been out socially with Vicki and Brooks many times and I've never seen this dynamic. BTW, Terry is a very good judge of character and he is really fond of Brooks.

When I invited everyone to Champagne bowling I got a much better reception than when I invited them to the painting party! (haha). I was disappointed that Alexis couldn't come. Of course, I understand doctor's orders, but I was hoping we could start over.

Speaking of Alexis, her performance on Fox Five was hard to watch. First rule of "journalism": know the name of the person you are interviewing! Also, let your guests talk! This is supposed to be a conversation -- not a soliloquy!!! Finally, while leading a discussion about sexual themes in the media (and being outraged) perhaps it's inappropriate to wear a blouse with your breasts hanging out. Children have access to Fox Five.

What a bummer for Gretchen that her voice isn't at 100 percent! It's so nerve wracking with such an important gig coming up. She is in great hands with the vocal coach. I thought Slade was being a bit controlling during the whole thing. I know he wanted to be helpful, but it's anxiety producing enough without being treated like a child. I was feeling for Gretchen.

Tamra's surgery. . .I am so happy for her! She is going to look so much softer and more natural! Eddie is sooo supportive. I love how he said "whatever makes you happy" about Tamra's decision to remove her implants. Well done! He's going to be a great husband and partner for Tamra.

Dinner with Jim and Alexis. I actually feel so bad for Alexis after watching this dinner. She is saying she is happy and in a great place. This is what she always wanted. I mean, that's exactly what you want to hear from your partner! Yet Jim totally shut her down. He wants her to give up the job she cares about so much -- why? It's one day a week! He wants her at home. Seriously??? He sounded like Fred Flintstone, only less self-actualized.

On to. . .the bowling party! YIKES!!!

First of all: for the record I did not invite Sarah to the party . She is Gretchen's friend and though and I usually say "The more the merrier," in this case. . .maybe not. We had a nice chat at the top of the evening (love her then-boyfriend Kurt, he's a doll) and it all went downhill from there!

I was worried about Gretchen and Slade getting along with VickI and Brooks after what happened at the Bunco party -- but they were all fantastic. No one was looking for drama. Everyone was very civil and enjoying the stress free evening. The top prize of Cristal champagne was a big hit! Too bad I STINK at bowling!!!So, Vicki and I were waxing poetic about our day in L.A. and then BAM.

Sarah puts a nuclear hit on the evening! She is yelling at Vicki for NO reason and then is hugely delusional about how she approached her.

Side note: they already knew each other. Seems like she was looking to create drama and get some attention

I tried to diffuse the situation . She wouldn't listen to me or her boyfriend or Gretchen. This girl is nuts. I may need to screen Gretchen's friends for her! She is too nice to be friends with such a "wackadoodle" as G would say!

I thought Vicki handled it very well. Sarah couldn't let it go. She was on a hamster wheel going round and round and round.

I still tried to say something nice to Sarah at the end of the evening, but she was way too impaired.

I hope this opens Sarah's eyes to the fact that she obviously has a problem. She needs to seek professional help. If not for herself, then for the people around her. She seems to want to hate on me in her blog every week. I have tried to be kind. The truth is the first time I met her (Vicki's party) she was drunk. The second time I met her (at the Improv), she was rude. This time she was plain nuts. I tried to help her at the party and she is still somehow blaming me. I'm done trying. She's not my cup of tea.

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.
