I was laughing watching Eddie trying to duck away from the drama. He hates the housewife drama and does not want to get involved or even be seen around it. He kept getting caught by a camera as he was trying to walk away from the arguing. Sorry babe, I know it gets crazy sometime.
Briana is such a strong girl and has gone through so much the past three years. I hope and pray that she gets better soon.
In closing, Alexis made this statement on her blog and it sent chills down my spin "I don't like how Tamra and Vicki treated Slade and Gretchen in the past about Slade's child support, and how in the past neither Tamra or Vicki seemed to care that Slade's precious son was so ill." I take great offense to this statement. As a mother of four it makes me sick to hear her say I did not care about Slade son being sick! As a Christian and a mother she should be ashamed to say something like that. The reason I was so vocal about Slade's issues in the past is because I felt SO BAD about his son.
I watched your reunion show Part I. What a mess! Alexis has never been one of my favorites but by what right did you "ladies" feel free to attack her, ticking off all her faults, some real and some imagined.? Heather who has been posing as the nice one, really blew her cover. Like Caroline Manzo, this episode was eye-opening and disappointing.
hi I am the bggest fan! Gretchen you & Tamara should plan getting pregnant about the same time that would b so much fun.I am sorry to c Vicki so unhappy about herself and her own personal life that she wants everyone else to b unhappy .All she needs is alittle work done to her face,then she can find herself a real man instead of taking not 2nds but like 5ths or 6ths place and getting a loser !
You don't have a true friendship with Gretchen. You two decided on an 'alliance' that would keep you both on the show. Its like watching the OC version of Survivor; one of you will eventually stab the other in the back.
I love the O.C. housewives, it is one of my fav show and I watch all, even when they are played over to catch everyone up. What I want to say is that you all are BEAUTIFUL, but I think its time for everyone to start minding their own business.....If it does not effect you leave it alone. Every single one of you are an inspiration to all woman you show us that success is their if you work hard..I think Its time to start supporting each other , through the good and the bad. Tamara I think you are a smart woman, but you do involve your self when you should not......You said in this blog that looks should not be commented on that it was mean spirited......Isn't calling Alexis Pinocchio and telling her her nose is big the same thing???? I think its time for all you Beautiful women to take the high road and squash the old saying that a group of woman can not get along. So Happy to see you Happy again, can not wait till the next show.
Congrats to you and Eddie, I hope Bravo will film your wedding as I think you would make a beautiful bride. I have to admit at first I was liking you to much this season, but you have come to grow on me, I like the changes in you and your friendship with Gretchen. I still think Vicki is a little mean, but I still like her. Best wishes agian to you and Eddie and I am looking forward to watching the season unfold.
Tamra- CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement!
I really loved the scene when you were sitting outside on the bench with Vicki and you said "Vicki look at me! Look at me! I am removed from this situation because I choose to be" AMEN to that! You were amazing when you said that.
I have seen a true change in you this season through the episodes and your blogs! I definitely have seen you trying to behave in a mature manner instead of fueling drama. That said, it does seem as though you should take this same route with Alexis. Although you are removing yourself from other situations, it appears as though you are still picking on Alexis. I don't know the whole situation of course. Maybe there is more to it. But I really think you should just not say anything about Alexis period and be done with that whole thing or you might find yourself caught up in another dizzy circle of drama.
Tamra, I am liking you more and more as the season progresses. You have matured so much in the last year. You are an inspiration to me - I would love to be able to rise above all of the nonsense in my own life and focus on gratitude for what I DO have going on that's good in my life. You seem so much happier and it makes you a joy to watch.
I understand Slade's desire to lash out at you and Vicki after all of the history, but never let it be sad that you are not amazingly hot. If I were you, I'd have an orgasm every day just looking in the mirror, and I'm about half your age. KUDOS to you, girl.
Yay! Congrats! You have hit the nail in the head with Alexis, Jesus Barbie can twist everything around. Last night was a clear visual of how manipulative that woman is! She needs to get over herself, she judges everyone!
When a child is involved then you shouldn't be vocal. Besides Tamara you only see what you want to see, that will benefit you at the time. You always did talk about how Slade was a bad dad, because of his supposednot paying his support if a parent was only judged on financials, then alot of us would be considered bad parents. No one should judge on financials. I have been a victim and have judged others about what they should and shouldn't be doing w/their own dang money. It's not right on either side of the fence. In the end we all gave to deal with our own choices and the repercussions that come from them. Whether good or bad. Your always bagging on Alexis, jealous much??
Our Tamra is growing up! Am so enjoying the new grown up version & how you are working so hard to stay above the various frays as it's a real sign of maturity. You are even determined to stay out of Vicki's stuff, tho she is just as determined to make you feel guilty about that, as tho you're doing something wrong or disloyal (she's wrong on both counts). Unfortunately, the comments on both Vicki's & Alexis' blogs are largely uncomplimentary & for good reason as both are behaving in childish, narcissistic ways...so keep to your new path & don't look back!
By saying you are removing yourself is a great idea. However, if you are really Vickie's friend you should be honest. From what I saw on the show she had a wonderful loving and caring husband which wasn't good enough for her and now were supposed to feel bad for her. I am no fan of Slade either but it looks like Karma is biting Vickie in the ass on that one.....Really her boyfriend did jail time for non payment of child support. If she were my friend I would say straight to her face "Get over yourself!!!" especially when you daughter needs you. That was the most pathetic ride to the hospital ever!! One thing I admired about you was how brutally honest you were in earlier seasons. Well don't stop now Vickie needs a wake up call.
Congrats on your engagement, you and Eddie really seem to balance each other nicely and be very in love. Don't sweat the stuff with Alexis by getting defensive on our blog, she's an idiot.
Congrats and Best Wishes. Just wanted to say that I'm glad you're making an effort to make amends with Gretchen this year. You and Gretchen are my favorites. Too bad Gretchen can't see what a loser Slade is.... Vicki is out of control with her self-centeredness and I don't think you should be afraid of her. I think you are the funniest HW on the show - love your sense of humor.
Its sad how mean you can Be for absolutely no reason, Alexis does not deserve your spite. As a mature woman you should know better than to be so cruel and ugly in your remarks. You have a lovely man by your side, if I were you I would examine my heart and change my ways.
Oh my goodness Tamra, I am so happy for you and Eddie! No wonder you get so much grief from Slade, Gretchen, and Alexis! They are jealous! Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha! Kiss that gorgeous man for all of us!
I agree with a lot of what you said here. I'm sorry but I don't care for Alexis one bit. She acts like she is better than everyone else and couldn't be farther from the Christians I know. And don't get me started on Slade, such a loser. I think Gretchen has lost her mind for staying with him let alone standing up for him. Thanks for keeping it real and Congrats on your engagement. It seems you have hit the jackpot with Eddie.
i didnt like you in the past but im really starting to like you this season and i can see that you are tying to grow as a person and stay out of the drama and its sad that vicky and alexis act like you and gretchen are not being good friends to them because you too are friends now they need to just get over it and try to improve them self and take a look at them selfs in the mirror i think that both of them are hypocrites and should to take their own advice
Hey Congratulations on your engagement!! It's nice to see you have found love again with a great guy!! The Bunco game itself is a really fun game, too bad all the drama got in the way. Great 80's outfits though!!!!
I really loved you the first season you were on RHOC. However, you have changed. You are trying to project a "new' you; however, you are still a mean girl. Your blogs say one thing, yet your actions on the show reveal something different. You criticized Slade for making fun of your looks, yet you told Alexis she has a big nose, in a mean-girl way. If Alexis wants to have plastic surgery on her nose and she wants us to think it's for sinuses, so be it. We (the viewers) aren't stupid--we knew what was really happening. When you get involved in her business, it just makes you look jealous, and that is not becoming. C'mon, get back to the fun Tamra from your first season--mean girl is not a title to be proud of.
congrats!!!! on the engagement. wishing you nothing but the best and many wonderful years ahead. stay strong and don't play into the alexis drama, your better then that.
It is really nice to see this side. Avoiding the drama as much as possible. Vickie and Alexis should learn from you, Gretchen, and Heather. They both only say what sounds good at the time.
CONGRADS!! GIRL! thats great news! just take it one day at a time lol i cant imagine myself around alexis, i probably could only stand 1 minute with her.she gives the true christians a really bad name, maybe shes a holy-roller? but she needs to get over you and gretchen trying to work it out. she needs to know her place on the show..in the corner with duct tape around her mouth! lol i rather have peggy back but we got heather and terry now which i really like also. lastly i have never ever heard you nor vicki say anything about slades looks,never. slade wasnt even remotly funny(which alexis down right lied to her friend gretchen saying he was hilarous)saying vicki looked like miss piggy was way off..maybe if vicki DID it would of MAYBE been funny But anyways i didnt get it..he made a butt of himself. kill em with kindness girl! i'll be watching, enjoy!
I thought when you first came on you were really funny - now that you are not picking on Gretchen anymore, why are you picking on Alexis? You just got engaged - why don't you worry about yourself and leave Alexis alone? She's not bothering anybody. It really makes you look classless.
Tamra, I used not to like you in previous seasons. You and Vicki were two peas on a pod - nasty women - however, this season you are a much nicer person; it could be because you are in a respectful, stable relationship. Keep it up Tamra it makes you look prettier
You are a breath of fresh air and your blog made me laugh out loud. I think you are great and congrats on your engagement. I wish you and Eddie much happiness!!
Tamra, Well, first off-CONGRATULATIONS! Eddie seems like a great guy! Yes, two years can turn a LOT around!
I think you're being very wise this season. You'll NEVER please everyone in this bunch. So, Jim WAS invited...hmm, interesting of Alexis to spin that for sympathy (AGAIN). She's a hot mess this season....
I do think if you sat as adults (or do what you're doing & just move forward) to discuss the issues of Slade/Vicki, they'd come out on top. The problem is that there's been so much mud throwing for yrs...it's going to take Vicki, Slade and a decent mediator! The remark about you not caring (made by Alexis) about Slade's son was just absolutely uncalled for-I agree. She really speaks and I am not even sure if she thinks later.... Again, best wishes!
Tamra, Tamra, Tamra! You know exactly what Alexis meant by that, and she was right. You didn't ever say "im sorry to hear about Greyson". Plus you were way to mean to Alexis. Your words can sting. Grow up!
You have a strong personality and I love the way you always have a comeback but something you come out a little too strong....However, I think you were just acting like a completly coward when Gretchend attacked Vicki, you did not defended your "friend" Vicki....
Really enjoying you this season, you really have grown as a person and glad that you and Gretchen decided to give your friendship a chance, I always thought you two could concur the "world" show together ;)
I don't understand where all this hatred towards Alexis comes from. She may be a little bit clueless at times, but she seems harmless to me. I don't perceive her as someone who is vindictive or out to hurt other people.. You on the other hand... It seems like you are always angry at someone or something. You make amends with one person and your hatred shifts to someone else. Can't you just be at peace with everyone in your life? It seems like you are only happy when you are making someone else miserable. And you fight dirty too. You strike at the Achilles heal. You see a weakness and that is where you strike first. I honestly feel sorry for you. How exhausting to live your life like that. At 40-something, you should be beyond all of this nonsense. Grow up or I can assure you that marriage #3 will be a disaster as well!
She wasn't lying about it. We all saw for ourselves the beginning of her surgery. While I like the fact your are finally being kind to Gretchen, I just don't trust your motives. When you make these comments about Alexis, it makes me see the same old Tamra. I don't like to judge people on reality shows but honestly you do not show us your good side at all. You seem like Camille Grammer, making nice with the viewers favorite in order not to get our ire. While I'm all about someone telling it like it is, aka NeNe, I'm not in favor of someone being just downright mean.
Tamra, you should try to understand your own insecurities instead of taking out your anger and insecurities on Alexis.
You have always been my favorite housewife, and this season has made me love you even more. You seem so much happier and in control now that you and Simon have gone your separate ways, and especially since Eddie has come into your life. Congrats on being engaged! I hope to one day find love like you two share. It's refreshing to see you and Gretchen getting along. The dynamic between the two of you is fun, and it makes for much more interesting television. As for Alexis, I understand why she was a little defensive at your party (when people feel they are backed into a corner, or when alcohol is involved, it makes for a pretty messy situation).
Anyways, you're awesome! Can't wait to see next week's episode!
Love you Tamra! Congrats on your engagement! Alexis and Gretchen have similar traits where they lie about everything.
Did you not see the xrays of Alexis's deviated septum? So if she chooses to get rid of the bump on her nose while under.... why in the world would you care?
