The next day we went zip-lining and had a beautiful lunch on the water. Vicki was over-the-top funny and dramatic while ziplining. I could not help but busting her chops. It is so nice to see Vicki happy and in love. When I say I have my eye on Brooks, I am just be protective of my friend. Vicki has gone through a lot and I want nothing more than for her to be happy.
Totally agree on your thoughts on the whole Peggy/Alexis/Jim issue.....been in that situation, I was the "Peggy" in that situation, I am no longer in a friendship with either of the other two, it was never spoke of which made me very uncomfortable and in turn I just kind of backed away from that whole situation.
I totally agree with you comment about keeping the past private so long as it isn't in your present!! Sooooo true and that is the agreement my hubby and I have. Now sometimes your past walks in the door and dances on the freakin' bar before you can let your love know about it, but that's understandable. Just so long as you fess up! I'm just glad that MY past is no where near my present!
I think you handled the Eddie / Brooks situation wonderfully!
Just have one question... Why not include Ovarian Cancer to the list of charitable causes? Its one of the leading killers of women, but I rarely hear of any charities for it besides the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.
This disease is known as the "Silent Killer" because its very hard to detect.... I would love to see more people (especially celebs) make more of an effort to support the cure for Ovarian Cancer.
I completely understand what happened. Alcohol makes us all do crazy things. And Eddie seems to be a very level headed person. What Tamra did was a joke. But again, alcohol and the whole situation just blew it up. I'm glad they all made up and everything is good again.
At least you guys were able to get past it and have fun afterwards. I've done my share of things I was embarassed about after 1 too many drinks!
Alexis has to stop making up excuses for Jim!
Nice blog. It wasn't mean. You didn't make unnecessary digs. Even with Alexis. You explained or owned your "ish" and that must be some hot dog stand!! :) Glad you had a great time!!
I really like Peggy comparative to Alexis because she seems warmer and more intelligent. I really do think Micah has pretensions (and its hard to say this because I like Peggy! I also like Micah over Jim).
Oh well, rock on!
Tamra I think the only reason you became friends with Gretchen again is because she is getting alot more attention than you are, and you want that too!
I have been your number one cheerleader ever since I saw you on the OC. My family thought I was nuts because at times your behavior has been unstable (wine throwing), biting (comment to Gretchen at last year's reunion about the mouth/butt jealousy thing), and your porn scene with Eddie when we first met him.
I would have thought by now you would have cleaned up your mouth and act. Simon is gone, you have Eddie, and Vicki is a wonderful friend. Please, try to control your actions and your potty mouth.
Tamara Ilove ya but definitely don't understand how you reacted with Eddie and Vicki..we the viewer see how it silly it is. Vicki would never do that to you never mind neither would Eddie..stop..really?
You made a dumb move with Brooks but I am glad you two have made up now. For your consideration it should be "Vicki and I".
Tamra, Dont let what you did on the boat ride get to you! You made a mistake god knows everyone has and the thing is to learn from it and remember the first time it was a mistake but do it again and it was a choice! You look great i am glad you and gretchen have forgiven each other.. I know people find it hard to understand your personality but i love it, you speak your mind. I cant wait to see your relationship blossom this season.
Tamra...you were acting so weid over nothing....stop being so jealous..It is not becoming to you at all.
Love, love, love you Tamra, so happy you and Eddie are still together, hes perfect for you. Totally get the mistake and the humor in you putting brooks hand on you, Eddie had reason to be upset, but he should also know you well enough to know you didnt mean it to be taken that way. :)
Tamra, I agree with you 100% with your say on the Alexis/Peggy drama! Jim was wrong to not tell his wife Alexis as Peggy was in her face everyday. Peggy was wrong not to tell Alexis as she was your friend and you hung out together with the kids. Peggy should think would she be ok if she found out one of her girlfriends that she and her husband hang around with, dated or slept with her husband. Her husband does not tell you about it. Peggy I wonder how your husband feels knowing you slept with Jim and the whole world knows it!
I am so Happy that you and Gretchen have made up and become friends again. It was becoming painful to watch. I will enjoy you and Gretchen being "Mean Girls" Together!
I have a dream to visit Catalina, but am too sick to travel. I was grateful to see some of it on the show. The table scene with the four of you was funny and knew Eddie was just joking around. Retract those claws Tamara! Eddie only has eyes for you, and hands, and lips.... By the way, the nose trimming in the limo had me roaring. You are not the only one who does that! Talk about "bonding". Too funny!
Tamara...The Eddie and Brooks meltdown episode was a total "Awkward Moment" situation! You could physically see Eddie's face change to utter dismay right after the incident! As you have stated already, you realize you way over reacted and that is obvious. Hopefully there will be no lingering hard feelings between you and Vicki since you two are so close.
Hey Tamara, you can say it was just a joke but I bet that is one joke you won't repeat. The hand on the boob didn't bother me as much as hearing the way you talked to Eddie when walking away, I am shocked he lets you speak to him that way, we all know the longer you are in a relationship the more your true colors show, I'd be surprised if he hung around for your verbal abuse.
Hello Tammara ,it is nice to hear you FINALLY say something nice about Gretchen.I hope you do try and treat her fair. P.S since day one, WATCH OUT GIRLS HOLD ON TO YOUR DADDY!!!!!
You are crazy... it was obvious that you were jealous for a moment and Eddie had every right to be mad. Glad you worked it out though.
No need to apologize for brevity, Tamra: Your entry is actually great, to the point, and so entirely credible. (Sometimes it sounds like too much rationalizing, or defensiveness when people go on and on; of course, that can also be that a complex situation needs to be deconstructed to be understood. Whatever;-)) ANYHOO: Your reaction to the Eddie/Vicki thing is understandable, and I even get why you did the Brooks/boob thing. It seems as if it was a case of boozy joking that just went a bit too far. But Vicki and Brooks stayed calm and balanced, which made it easy to move on. Plus, I gotta say: Watching you apologize to Eddie, and seeing him express his anger, but then be forgiving, says a lot about the likelihood that you guys will have a great, honest, loving, respectful future together. Good luck; it's time!
You want us to believe that your boyfriend, Eddie, was earlier-in-the-day "seasick", so he alleviated the discomfort by drinking tequila shots & champagne on the evening ride on another boat, in front of the camera(s). If that's the truth, he's a dupa (dummy). But you said it, and we know you'd never stretch the truth, so I must say, "He's a dummy." Go for it, Tamra. You two are great for each other. You're perfect. Stop looking. He's the man for you. Make Simon a happy man - finally.
I have to say last year I wasn't so sure if your relationship with Eddie was real or fake. But listening to you guys fight as you got of the boat...I knew for sure it was real!!
Stop....just stop now.The "shock value" behavior, and vulgar language aren't entertaining-just embarrassing. Ick. Not cute.
Your words and behavior show very little class. Have you watched past episodes? You embarrass yourself and don't even know it.
So, Tamra .. you like Brooks .. think he's a nice guy? What about his problems with not paying child support? Do you have any opinion about that .. cause I know you had an opinion about not paying child support when it came to Slade. You are as big a hypocrite as Vicki is. Hope Eddie wakes up and smells the coffee soon ... otherwise he'll be your next victim.
I really want to like you but just when I start BAMM you start being a mean girl again. I hope for Gretchen's sake you are being honest in renewing your friendship but only time will tell. If not shame on you. Just look what you did to Vicki and Jeana's friendship. Toxic. At least you seem to be with a great guy. Hope you realize how lucky you are to have him! Please please please take a hard look at who you are showing yourself to be. Do that for your kids and the man you say you love.
Tamra, you are my absolute favorite on the show...... I love your raw sense of witt humor & the fact that, although it may not be considered classy, you still say it the way it is...... Absolutely love your personality & that you are who you are & make no excuses for anything....... Glad that you & Gretchen have 'appeared' to have called a truce & hopefully things work out so that the two of you can maintain some sort of a friendship as I think the two of you are fun loving women who enjoy life as a whole & look at the glass as 'half full'..:)
I think many of us can relate to the jealousy incident to some degree for sometime in our lives I think we've all been down that path.... BUTTTT, you're absolutely right that adding booze to any situation only magnifies it & makes it appear, oftentimes, what the situation isnt'........
I'm so happy for you & Eddie.... That you both have found one another & love one another....Glad you gave love another chance & it appears that 'Eddie is 'the one'..........
I enjoy the show because of 'you' & look forward to this season.....:)
I love that you and gretchen are friends! u both are the free spirits of the show! and the most entertain to watch!
INTERESTING THAT YOU BLOW IT OFF SO EASILY. IF THAT WERE ALEXIS OR GRETCHEN YOU AND VICKIE WOULD OF HAD A FIELD DAY WITH THAT. YOU ARE THE JUDGEMENTAL ONE AND YET THE ONE WHO IS ALWAYS THE ONE WHO IS SO SHALLOW AND OUT THERE.
Wow, now Eddie sees and knows firsthand what Simon referred to a number of times about Tamra's unacceptable behavior. Even Tamra has admitted over the years that her actions are deliberately intended to get a reaction ~ how sad that it cannot be done in good taste ~ after all she is a Mother of small children, a daughter, and a girlfriend. And yet Tamra always has the audacity to speak ill of the other ladies ~ get some class.
I loved the jumpsuit you were wearing at Vicki's party. That is the best you have looked since last season. Your happiness is showing!
All of the OC side sales ventures are becoming a bit off-putting from watching these "reality" shows - where everyone tells us we don't know the real story.
You are a very abrasive, judgemental person who is quick to say what other people are doing, even if you have no clue if it is true or not. If I was Gretchen I would stay far, far away from you!!
You really need to think before you act. Touching your breast with Brook's hand was so inappropriate. Maybe it would help if you were to drink a little less!
I am truly amazed at the level of your immaturity. If I thought for a minute that I couldn't trust my best friend not to hit on my guy (in front of me), she/he wouldn't be my friend. After the "boob incident", Vickie and Brooks were so nice to you. Not me, I would have ripped you a new one! Grow up before you lose Eddie...
Tamra - Let me begin by saying this "poor Simon". After seeing this last episode and watching you in action, hahah BOY DID YOUR MASK SLIDE OFF, yeah it must have. Because you my friend are such the victim (NOT). Wow, porr Eddie, he must be desperately insane to be with such a shallow piece of work like yourself.
I don't understand how Eddie thought drinking so much after being seasick would make him feel better? He doesn't drink? I recall him downing wine during the bathtub seen and having tequila shots during several outings last season. Anyway, I understand how you got "there". If I was in that situation, I'd react angrily and do something I regret too. Blame it on the alcohol! I have a hard time empathizing with Alexis. She's very annoying, self righteous and full of contradictions. I'm sure if Peggy told her about her past relationship w/Jim early on, she would still be upset w/her only then it would be "why is Peggy telling me this and trying to cause problems in my marriage unless she still wants him" . It was a no win situation for her.
