Sarah explains her point of view of the bowling debacle.

on Apr 11, 20120

Bowling + Champagne + Drama = Last call for Alcohol

I am just going to start off by saying that truth be told there always comes a point in everyone's life after a long night that you really have to take a moment to stop and ask yourself... "What the F--k!?!" LOL. . .

As much as I would love to laugh about this whole bowling extravaganza, I want to be completely honest here by saying that embarrassed wouldn't even be the right word to describe the outcome of this evening.

I'm sure that chances are either you, or someone you know, may have had an "outer space moment" at some point, and sometimes you really just have to own it and move on. There are always two sides to every story.

I know it sounds so cliche, but seriously I had just about the worst day possible before I even got to the bowling alley. I was in the middle of a rough relationship period and was pretty much in tears by the time I got to the bowling alley. So logically thinking I shoulda/woulda/coulda have just called it a night and went home. But I thought that maybe spending some quality time with the girls would cheer me up a bit. Unfortunately that wasn't the case.

Sarah, There seems to be a disconnect. Do you not see how you acted like a bully? Who are you anyway...friend or not, you had no right to talk to anyone the way you did. I think you are not well liked by the public. Good luck with your 15 seconds of "fame"

Oh my gosh, why do any of you CARE if Sarah get to blog?! And she really hasn't had that much exposure on the show (what? twice?) to warrant such strong negative opinions of her. Calm yourselves, people.

I gotta call BS. Try and spin it all you like, but you went to Vicki agressively, and interrupted her in mid-conversation. You were rude. You both had met each other before. There is no way you just were trying to introduce yourself and offer support for Brianna. You acted a fool. Even Gretchen said you were out of line. And you were. Big time. Heather didn't even invite you! Grow up.

You are insane if you think that you just went over to Vicki, nicely sat down and asked to speak to her. Watch the tape....educate yourself on what you did!! You went over and demanded that you and her had something to talk about. I would have reacted the same way....get away from me and leave me alone!! Everyone has the right to chose whom they talk to and have around them....grow up and get over it if it isn't to your liking. Also, you were acting like you were in high school and you got called out on it. Heather has done nothing to you but point out how stupid your behavior was at a party that she put together and funded. Were you even on the guest list or did you just show up?? Why you even have a blog is beyond me. Next time I see your face on the show....I am turning the tv off.

Why are you always commenting on Heather? From what has been on the show she has not been mean to you (at least nothing different than the other ladies). What is your deal with her? You write blogs to all just get along and then trash talk about Heather. You comment on Tamra not being too nice to Alexis but in return you seem to be the same to Heather.

SARAH- It's so obvious that you are trying to start trouble just to make yourself relevant! Forget it... nobody cares about you! I hope you won't be back.

I don't want to be mean... but I seriously wonder who you are and why you have a blog and bad day or not why you ruined the bowling party? Did the producers ask you to? Seriously just once I'd like to see a nice event with no drama. especially someone else starting it when the HWs are trying so hard to get a long.

BRAVO TAKE A CUE FROM BETHENNY. Fun refreshing honest - real life and no intentional hurtfulness..

and remove this person and her blog - she's hurting not helping. (wish you the best sara.. but sheesh..

VERY reasonable explanation for what we saw of you that night. We've all been there....I don't care what anyone says....we've ALL been there. I initially thought your behavior was strange, but after reading your blog, I completely get it. And, to be honest, as much as I adore Heather (and I definitely do!), your "and her wife Terry" jab was awesome and not wholly unwarranted! I like Terry, too, but that's the second occasion in which I've seen him be a bit bitchy like a female. Regardless, I now find you absolutely adorable. Hope we see more of you!

i like you! you have a youth about you that I think the OC needs. you don't have a stick up your ass like the other OC housewives or the people who are commenting and hating on you. btw, while i was watching the bowling party meltdown I could totally tell that it was the champagne... and everyone is acting like they have never been there before. lighten up, people! haters gonna hate... anyway, i'm glad you have a blog and i hope to see more of you on the OC

OMG! The one blogger that said " haven't we all drank too much and said stuff we regret.". Yes, that is true but a smart person would not do it on National TV. Then rather than apologizing and admitting that it was humiliating you try to defend it. I really don't know what you could possibly add to future shows. I believe your 15 minutes are up.

I agree with some of the other comments, who are you? A fool I think, and Heather and Terry are not the Adams family, they were laughing at an idiot, you my dear. In reading your blog, at first I was like, ok she is going to own her stupid behavior, but then, your blog gets, well, shall I say stupid. You deserve to be treated like this, and going on television, on this show, you should've known better. Vicki is the better person, well, everyone there was, except you.

way to completely try to cover up your real reason for going over and talking to vicki...and blatantly not acknowledge the fact that YOU HAD ALREADY MET HER AT HER DINNER PARTY!!! heather's hilarious impression of you was pretty spot on..."i just wanted to go introduce myself and say hi, i'm sarah!" holy hell. also, vicki wasn't rude and didn't snap at you immediately. she politely said not right now or i'd rather not because SHE WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A CONVERSATION. were you not taught as a child that it's rude to interrupt adults that are speaking? i know you have the mentality of a 6 year old, but i learned that when i started talking. you're a little crazy.

Good Lord ! I'd hate to be friends with a lot of you comment writers out there. You set a frighteningly high bar to live up to - zero tolerance for mistakes. Yikes. I'm assuming you all live in glass houses and have never had too much to drink or behaved poorly ... not even once, right ??? And if you did do one or the other ONCE, you RUSHED to apologize whole heartedly and without explanations or qualifications, right ? Well, I hope your answers to those questions were emphatic YESES, because if not, then you should LIGHTEN UP and give the girl a break !

WHo Are You and why are you on the show??? Why do you blog each week -It seems you just wanted to make yourself relevant - All you did was show your character. I hope Bravo rethinks your involvement in this show.

" why have a bowling party if everyone is going to be segregated and uncomfortable the entire time?"

Given the fact that Gretchen and Vicki had a blow out fight last time they were in the same room, I don't think anyone minded being segregated. Only your actions made everyone uncomfortable

Why do you get a blog? Who are you? You're reminding me of Slade: riding on housewives's coat tails trying to be on the show.

"Girlfriend", you made a total spectacle out of yourself on national TV and you had a real good chance to redeem yourself in your blog and you did not. If there were Vicky haters out there you just flipped them because walking away from you that night was the classiest thing Vicky could have done. Between you and Slade looking out for Gretchen and what is best for her.....she was mortified both times by you two. WHO DOES THAT? (wasn't that your question to Vicky) If Slade really cared about Gretchen he would have changed his material like she asked and if you were a true friend then you would have been there for Gretchen and help her mend fences with the ladies instead of making it worse. And maybe you should consider AA the few times I have seen you on the show you have been drunk. Really? I hope that Bravo looks at all this negativity that is coming from you being on the show and reconsiders your place in the OC. I know I will change the channel every time i see you on it. BTW Heather has more class in her littlest finger then you have in your entire body so chill with envy of her its a bit much.

Sara, of course we don't know you, but how can see yourself aggressively say "we need to talk" and then come back here and say yet again that you asked Vickie if you could talk to her? You were extremely drunk. It happens to the best of us. Just say "oops, boy did I cack that up", apologize, and move on? Then alot of us would have had a good laugh with you and probably shared some of our embarrassing moments! You weren't wearing your heart on your sleeve, and it wasn't a miscommunication, it was you being drunk. No one can talk to a drunk person. Everyone knows that.

Here's the thing, Sarah. You started your blog of right, apologizing and admitting you acted like a fool. And then you spent the next two pages blaming everyone but yourself for the debacle. You HAD already met Vicki, as we all saw in the opening episode at Vicki's own home. And you say here in your blog that you'd met her--yet you insisted all night that you were "just introducing" yourself to her! You walked up, plopped yourself down and very confrontationally (without and introduction that we saw) said, "can I talk to you?" When she explained to you that she didn't want any drama YOU were the one who went off. And Heather didn't invite you to bowling night but tried really hard to talk you off of your ledge, and now you call her and Terry "the Adams family?" That's really unfair. I read your blog to get some insights into you, thought for sure after seeing the episode you'd apologize to Vicki, but nope. BTW, I'm not at all a fan of Vicki's normally, but she tried to keep you from blowing.

Heather and her wife... Four-faced... Parking for her broomstick... You are very funny! All of these women have been filmed under the influence to their detriment and our entertainment. Vicki having issues with anything anyone says is soooo ridiculous after the insults she's thrown about. Good job Sarah!

Hi Sarah! I'm sorry that you had such an embarrassing moment on camera; I think we've all had a moment like that but were lucky enough not to have it archived on national television. I wouldn't say that you behaved in an ideal fashion, however it's unfortunate how cruel and venomous people's comments to you have been. We're all human and flawed; sadly the vicious judgement we pass on others is usually a projection of how we feel about ourselves. So I think even after reading these posts it would be wonderful if you can take a pause to be honest with yourself about your mistakes in that moment, then show yourself compassion, and remember it's in the past.

Sarah was definitely on the nutty train. She kept on and on about the same stuff. Her eyes looked like she had to much alcohol.

I'm going out on a limb here......but I'm betting that sleazy, skanky, sneaky Slade had something to do with this CRAZY scheme of yours. He was MIA in ALL of the scenes where you were making a fool of yourself. Coward ! It is so obvious that you were up to something from the get-go. Why show up at a Party that you weren't even invited ? GROW UP !!!

Lck

Wow.. You acted very badly. No way to spin that, although you are trying. Just own it already. Owning it doesn't involve two sides. You were a sloppy drunk and that's it. If you are trying for more camera time on HWs, you may want to try not insulting the women (and husbands) in your blog.. Was today a bad day too?

I'm really not understanding your animosity towards Heather. You showed up uninvited to her party and caused a scene. This seems to be the entirety of your contribution to the show this season.

Does anyone care about you? Why are you even writing a blog for bravotv.com? You not only should be embarrassed by your behavior, but also this blog! You had no intention of talking to Vicki about her daughters health, and no one believes you did for a second. You sound like the child with your Adams Family comments and your spaceship and broomsticks question. Go away.

It was a rough nite for you. Honestly to me it didn't look like you were going to start a fight but you appeared impaired and I know Vicki does not like drama so she brushed you off abruptly(her self defense mechanism) I hope all is going well for you hon. You seem like a nice genuine friend. Take care

Wow you wrote 3 pages of excuses. I think Vicki did the mature thing by walking away, knowing it was going to be drama. If you would have followed her lead your embarrassment could have been avoided, and everyone watching wouldn't think you are a sloopy drunken fool. And your "relationship issues" were they before or after you were shhwasssted?! But hey 3 shots of patron will fix it! Heather is very respectful and genuine, dont hate her cause you aint her! Every time we see you in an episode your drunk, maybe you should seek some professional help.

Glad you "womaned" up, but you still keep jabbing. You were totally out of line, and made an absolute fool out of yourself. My advice to you is, stay out of other peoples business, and worry about yourself. Remember, just because you want to talk to someone, doesn't mean they want to talk to you. Vicky did the right thing by walking away from a drunk girl, and Gretchen just wanted to crawl under a rock. Live and learn and you'll be fine.

After making a complete fool of myself a few times, I learned the hard way that any more than two drinks and I become a crazy lady. You were smashed and out of line. Once Vicki in her usual hateful, rude, superior, and obnoxious way refused to talk to you, maybe you should have just dropped it and said something like "screw you too" and just walked away. You did not make yourself very popular with the viewing audience with your behavior and I doubt you will be kept around on the show any longer. Gretchen is a sweet lady and you complicated things for her and I'm sure embarrassed her. If you owe anyone an apology, you should be apologizing to your friend, Gretchen.

I love the show for this reason, "The Drama" why else would we watch? I Have to agree with some of the others though. I would have taken this so called owning up to my actions if the little digs and jabs weren't thrown in to the mix. Who doesn't have drama in their life? we would all be lying if we didn't. I just feel sometimes things are better left unsaid and just take the high road and e the bigger person...and Sarah, we have all had our moments but not on National Television....so you have to live with that one...

I hope you are not going to be continuing to be on RHOC cause you don't seem to have much to bring to the show. Except for me to feel really sorry for you. I hear Jersey shore is changing their cast next season.

Okay, question?! Where do people you get off showing your face in a place where you weren't even on the list to attend and then, not only sticking your nose where it doesn't belong but trying to be the mediator in a situation that was CLEARLY way above your pay grade, mentally, that is. You come off weak and sad because you felt disrespected and mistreated??? Hello, honey! Why do you feel the need to defend another grown woman that you say is your friend when there isn't even conflict involved, at the current moment? You want to complain about being kept segregated? I don't understand people who are that needy. Your happiness relies on where you are placed at an adult bowling party? Wow. Get a grip! What are you, 20? I am only 30 and can definitely see clearly now that the rain is gone. Please evalute yourself, life and behavior. At least attempt to see all obstacles in your way! Haha... BE AWARE OF YOURSELF before you again, make a complete fool of yourself! You she need to take a toddler time out and REFLECT! Lay off the booze, too. Every battle, is not yours, hun. Fight what YOU can control and should be the one to control.....

Bravo, please post! Gracias!

Sarah -

You should be embarassed. You reminded me of the high school mean girl who had too much to drink at the party after the football game, then got inappropriately confrontational and emotional, and then tried to revise history the following Monday at school by attempting to rewrite the facts and portray yourself as "just trying to be nice." Look in the mirror, own your behavior, and then grow up. You are too old to act this childish.

I was entertained. I believe that is the point of these RHW shows right? And yes, it was at your expense. ( Heather and her wife... still funny!)

Acting self-depricating as a way to own up to bad behavior and then never owning it is no different than getting wasted, picking a fight, and then blaming the other person. How you acted while intoxicated was probably more true-to-form than the person you would like us to believe you are. Your blog did nothing to show us your sober personality is no different than your drunk one. Alcohol brings out latent personalities, although yours turns out to be not so latent. When sober (and I can only assume you were sober when you wrote this), you had a hint of responsibility, but then lost it all to the ruse of wanting to make nice-nice with Vicki. You, and everyone who watched, knows that you weren't going over there to be sweet. Vicki could see it coming a mile away, of course she was rude. She knew she was about to get jumped! And when drunk, you were just ugly. It feels good to be sober and truthful... you should try it.

I have only read this one blog by you and after seeing this week's episode can say with 100% certainty that you are delusional. Why are you even on the show? Your not worth watching at all. I don't understand how Gretchen is friends with you. Gretchen seems like an honest, real, fun, loving person and you are the complete opposite. Hopefully, Bravo won't keep you on the show so I won't have to fast forward every time your face graces my TV.

seriously..
seriously..

I really just want to know who you are...besides a bestie of Gretchen and Airheadlexis. Your bio says that you are an heir of the Winchester rifle family who was also the family of the famous winchester house...but even their family tree shows no heirs. I have been interested in that house for years, and have visited it. They say there are no heirs. so who are you, really?
