Vicki on the other hand has taking things to a whole other level. I don't ever think I can go back to being her friend. I sat there on that couch and watched her deflect every question that came her way. . .It's always someone else's fault in her eyes. She takes responsibility for nothing and finds someone else to blame. From her passive aggressive comments to her downright lies. Her comments about how I "turned" on her is a mystery to me. I have never turned on her for one second. I have been nothing but a good friend to her for five years. I sat there many times when she went off on my ex-husband and I sat there like a child and let them both fight over what was best for me. I never challenged her for getting in between my marriage and definitely NEVER screamed at her for the nasty things she said to Simon. . .like I should have.
I heard about Brooks from Vicki four years ago, she claimed he was a "good friend," someone she talked about all the time and often visited in Mississippi. It wasn't until last year that I met him. I thought he was charming and made Vicki happy. About six months into getting to know him, I noticed that something was off. I could not put my finger on it but something with this guy Brooks (or should I say David, his real name) just didn't make sense. Her friends, family, and office staff started calling me with the same feelings. Then an overwhelming amount of emails where coming through my fan page from people that have had "bad dealings" with Brooks. So of course I was concerned, who wouldn't be? The bottom line: friends don't let friends date losers!
On to better things. I am excited to be going on a family vacation next week to NYC with all the kids and my god-daughter Kacey. It will be our first family vacation with Eddie as a family. . .I hope he survives! We are spending a few days in the city. The kids are very excited to go see The Lion King and the Statue of Liberty. Then we are going
to spend a few days in the Hamptons with my WinesbyWives.com business partner Chris and his lovely family. Wines by Wives is sponsoring VH1 Save the Music charity event on July 21. If you're in the Hamptons I hope you will attend, love to see you there. Enjoy your summer
Go ahead and fly your "who gives a flip flag" your true friends are your family the rest is just extra...And I like the show because unlike most friends who may talk behind your back you all get it on out there.
Out of all seasons in the history of housewives and out of all housewives that's ever been on the show you are the meanest woman I have ever seen.
By the way the shows really gone downhill the last 2 seasons because of your mean spirits, it's not fun to watch women be so full of hate. I won't be watching the show anymore.
You have got to be so unhappy with yourself to treat others the way you do. You all had a problem with Alexis coming and she came with good intentions. Grow up ladies youre giving women a bad name!
Tam, do none of you ladies go back and watch footage? If you did you'd see why a lot of us see you as a liar. You stretch the truth and embellish a lot. As another commenter stated, I don't think I can watch another season of you being so vile and untruthful, this year to Vicki. Eddie needs to go watch the last few years. Maybe that would wake him up.
Oh why oh why did Alexis really come back??? she clearly is not, does not really want to be friends or part of the group....so tired of the holy crap from her mouth...
Tamra, you're my fav on the show! I don't understand why people call you a bully, I've watched three seasons and only saw that you make blunt(yet funny) comments about the things happening on the show. I can understand how people could be annoyed by Alexis, she doesn't seem to be too smart. However, I don't think you shouldn't talk about her as much, she's a non-threat, she's not too bright but not evil.
I was only able to watch 20 min of the first episode and had to turn it off. I'm disappointed that the tone is already so negative. With Tamra disrespecting her fiancé and his home and then calling Vicki a bitch...and then Heather disrespecting her husband, I just couldn't stomach anymore. The only positive was Briana's pregnancy, and I had to miss it because of the Debbie downers on this show. I think I'll skip this season. Ugh. Good riddance, OC.
Tamra when will you ever grow up and start acting like a lady and mature person? You have been labled by the viewers of this show as a BULLY. Alexis didn't start it - the viewers called it out after watching your horrific bahavior. Stop making excuses and own up to it. We are sick and tired of hearing your nasty remarks...You are easy to judge and fortell who you think should go to hell - but know the facts. You have no authority to judge...only God has that right. I pity you - becuase you are a fool...and now your dragging Gretchen into your realm of inappropriate behavior.
And be clear - that your attitude towards others is reflecting in your appearance. Seriously please seek counseling - you need anger management and also you need the little green guy exorcised too....jealousy. I'm praying for you; that you will become a fun-loving good spirited person. Remember what you say about people is a reflection of the person you are!!!!!
Sorry for mispelling your name (Tamara), moving forward. Tamra you are coming full circle and Eddie is such a good match for you. You both compliment each other. When I think of how he sat back and watch you anticpate him popping the question last season was the funniest thing. Eddie is a jokester, everytime I think of this episode I laugh.
Tamra I am sure you and Vicki will eventually become friends, but she has to start owning her crap and stop blaming everyone under the sun, until that happens, stay clear away because you will always be a target!
As far as I am concern, you did not bully Lexis you were letting her know what you observe and frankly one is responsible how they receive the message and they are responsible how they execute the message. Personally you were doing her a favor but it could have been told to her in private.
Mean girl, hmmm to me you were following Vicki's lead, but that does not excuse you from your actions. This season you have to much going on to worry about anyone. You have your gym, you have your wedding, and a wife to Eddie and your children.
Theres not much to say but keep your eyes to the sky.
Just can't watch another season of you being so mean to these women. Out of all the women on these shows you are the worst of the worst.
It's only the first episode and you already are talking mean about Alexis. I hope you won't be like this the whole season.
reginae I am so sick of the Alexis bashing ... I didn't get it last season, and I still don't get it now. What did Alexis ever do to any of these ladies???? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!! Tamra, Heather, and Gretchen should be ashamed of themselves for villianizing this girl for basically loving Jesus and having fake boobs ... they all need to a get a life.
@nicole.lea.509 @reginae I truly feel it's discrimination against her Christianity, as carnal as it is.
Tamara, when you call the behavior you and the others have when you're tearing each other apart as, basically, "good entertainment"... really? When you say that everyone knew what they signed up for, I'm sure that didn't mean to say hurtful things to another because you're just, "telling it like it is". I have seen teens and younger kids do this all of the time over the past few years. I can tell you this, it is far worse now than it was 10 years ago. It's /'like our society has declared "Open Season" on those who are not like us. Bullying is on the increase and, yes, it is bullying. You are a much smarter woman than that. You know too well that it's bullying. Being honest with people does not require screaming at them and getting in groups with others of like minds and tearing them down. Some people are just not going to be like the others. Variety is the spice of life. When you all get together to talk about one of the others in mean terms, it leaves everything flat/flavorless and plain old mean spirited. Sure... there are plenty of people who would call that entertaining. I'm sure they're the same people who would be cheering on school bully who's beating up the new kid in the funny hat. The funny thing is, you seem to be such a sensitive, soft-hearted person.. It seems as though you have equated that with being weak after all you have been through. You don't have to be mean to be strong. You don't have to yell at people to prove you're right. You can tell your friend how you feel and if she chooses not to listen, it's on her. You can be there to pick up the pieces, if they fail. Or, cheer them on if it proves you were wrong. I have to say, I do understand your reservations about your friend's relationship. And don't get me wrong. She needs to own up to her own behavior as well. Best of luck on your business and your future plans, wherever they may lead you.
Well Tamra~`I see you are trying to out do your mean girl mentality from last season! I find it pretty sad that you and Gretchen are the kind of women that can only have one bff at a time...and now you are getting the Dubrois lady in on the mean girl band wagon!!
You really need to grow up! And for someone who claims to not like Vicky, you sure spend a lot of energy & time talking about her. And in order to talk about someone, ya have to think about them...so you are spending a gob of time on someone you claim to not like!!!
I do think you guys bullied Alexis last season. Pointing out someones faults is rediculous. You my dear are far from a saint. You keep trashing Alexis because of your own insecuties. Your only making yourself look bad.
Usually, the fakes are the ones I can't stand the most on these shows. In your case, I almost find myself wishing you would be fake (if Bravo doesn't have the sense to yank you off that is) because the real you is too repulsive to watch. Thank God for FF; if I decide to watch this season, I will be definitely be using that during your segments.
Tamra, I have watched only RHOC since 2nd season. I didn't like you when you were married to Simon, but since you left him I have warmed up to you. You can be rough but I think your heart is in the right place. I love that you just go for it, so many people don't in life. I like that you and Gretchen are friends now but don't leave Vicki out in the cold. Help her get rid of Brooks or whatever his name is. Team up with Brianna on that one. Can't wait for season 8.
I have to say I agree with the others that say, Tamra is coming off as a Mean girl. It makes me wonder if you reflect on your faults when you see yourself on TV? Why point your finger at other women when you seem to need some work yourself? Do any of you know what a true friend Is? I hope this season reflects grown up women from Orange County.
Tamra, I heard you say some where after last season you might be the one that comes back nice.Maybe next season would be your turn.Well this season is almost here.I hope all of you ladies have some fun and support each other.You and Vicki are always friends back and forth.You and Alexis were friends in season 5.She was friends with everyone but she and vicki got off on the wrong foot.Now they are friends.Gretchen needs to tell Alexis sorry for last season only if she means it.Lydia seems nice.Laurie was always nice.I do not think Alexis and Heather got to know each other.You do not all have to be bff but you can disagree with out each other calling names and being mean.I think by the end of the season Lydia and Alexis will be on good terms with everyone.Now Gretchen and Vicki have never been friends in this season will be 5 seasons together.Maybe this season something will give.OC my favorite.Like BH Lisa.
I'm from the United States and totally DISagree...and am entitled to this opinion....Alot of us who DISagree with Ya'll Tamra wannabes will continue to watch the show too and tell it like we see ....NOT A FAN of TAMRA - She is a bully and has very bad manners, and am ugly voice in this reality show...we just saw a clip for the upcoming show and she's at agin demanding attention and rearing her ugly mouth.....
love you and your attitude,keeping it real girlfriend if you werent on i would not watch,alexis needs 2 goooo that girl is fake as fake could ever be,keep being you tamra...all the way from the u.k:)
Tamra, I gotta admit that in the beginning I wasn't your biggest fan... but now? Haha you crack me up! Granted, some of the things you say are going overboard, but they're just hilarious! FINALLY you and Gretchen are friends! I've been waiting for this! Vicki is just... well ignorant to put it bluntly. She may be book smart with her business but common sense smart she is not. She will find out sooner or later with Brooks, and didn't they already break up once?? Interesting... unfortunately she didn't listen to you sooner huh? I did exactly what you did when I found out my (now ex) best friend's boyfriend was cheating on her and she KNEW about it! She asked me what I thought she should do, I said DUMP his worthless butt! She stayed, he started manipulating her, telling her what to think, then knocked her up and finally married her cause she was paying all the bills while he stayed at home doing nothing. Needless to say, sh** went down and we are no longer friends, almost five years down the drain... shame
Tamra, you have turned really horrible this season. Yes, I get your point with Brooks, but a good friend would say "Hey Vicki, I think Brooks is an opportunist, just please be careful" and leave it at that. You have put your point across showing you care, but leave Vicki to live her own life and not resent you. This way if she and Brooks broke up, she would have no hesitation in going to you for support. You have completely alienated her since becoming friends with Gretchen, lets not forget at one point, Vicki was the only friend you had. All we need now is for Heather to feel your wrath and you have had issues with every housewife there was! Does this not ring alarm bells that perhaps you're the problem with the way you speak to people? Food for thought.
Im just finished watching season 7 over here in Ireland and im left wondering who Tamara is going to bully next in season 8! I want to like her but I just cant she is very false/nasty/evil woman and she definately doesnt know/understand the meaning of "true friends" after the way she treated poor Vicky. I felt very sad for Alexis after watching the 3 of them bully her in Costa Rica this was not good tv as its a reminder this happens everywhere you get a pack and they always pick on the vunerable (it must make her feel good about herself). Anyhow, Vicky is my favourite on the show always has and always will be I love the way she represents women she is one very classy lady. Goodluck to you Tamara with your new "true friendships" I wonder how long you will keep these for? Emmm.............
I have recently started watching this show from the UK and have been repulsed by Tamra's behaviour and nastiness. Tamra, Gretchen and Heather acted like a coven on witches in Costa Rica. With "friends" like these who needs enemies.
Gretchen---Love you! You just don't care what anybody thinks about you and you march to the beat of your own drummer. To hell with all the naysayers. You carry on girl!
I just watched the preview and am kind of turned off by the whole thing. If that's what the season is going to look like, I will not be watching. It's more of the same thing from the previous season. Fighting and more fighting. What happened to the fun days of girlfriends hanging out together and having fun and enjoying each others company. So tired of watching grown women stabbing each other in the back just to get more air time. Sorry, Bravo, it used to be fun watching all the Housewives now it's just become very sad.
I watched the preview.It looks like most the drama is between Gretchen and Vicki.Those 2 have never gotten along.Gretchen looks so different and has changed the most out of all the OC housewives.Tamra,hope you have learned some kindness.do not be so hateful.
You're a total turn coat......... So much for friendship! Did you do it for the camera? shame on you!!!!!!
hi tamara your my second favourtie Real Housewive of Orange County your caring kind and lovely in everyway your strong and you can do anything you feel is right for you
Tamra, love you on the show! Can't wait to see your wedding! I read alot of the comments on here and I guess people just don't get honesty or are afraid of it. I'm happy you and Gretchen are good friends. I think you both have been through alot of the same things and you understand each other. I didn't like Vicki's behavior this time around. I think she is just unhappy her marriage didn't work out after so long. It happens. I just got divorced last year after forty years. No regrets. Well maybe one, no boyfriend! Anyway, I look forward to next season. You and Gretchen hang in there, looks like things are lookin up for you.
bouchmary There is a big difference in honesty and attacking and being vicious towards other people. Tamera is very insecure and jealous of the others. I do not call what she does honesty
missu.k01 angelkiss bouchmary
It's not honesty, it's Tamra's opinion and it always has a nasty spin on it.
Something to live by Tamra....Someone else's behavior does not determine mine. Truly, it is a character flaw to throw another person under the bus to serve your own agenda.You have to determine who you are....and react accordingly. No matter what someone else does.....
Out of all the women on this show, I think you are the meanest. I was watching reruns of the Coasta Rica trip. I think it is amazing how you have come out on the other side of your divorce so empowered. Throughout your journey you expected understanding of your "friends". It was valid to you. And omg but when it was not about you, it is an inconvenience. You talk alot about authenticity and hypocracy. Where was your integrity throwing Terry under the bus? Until something was said, you did not care.. If anyone came at you the way you did Alexis, you would come unglued. While I am not saying Alexis does not have her issues, you miss (or dont care) that the message gets lost the minute you pull out that holier than thou attitude. And man you have that mean girl thing down. If you truly cared about her or anyone for that matter, you would take them aside and talk to them personally. I am not even sure why the confrontation took place, since you said to her face you do not care. YOU DID say that. But no wait, That would mean no ratings. YOU are the last person that should talk about drama, seriously. Oh and I think you are a nosey busy body. SO when in the future when you start crying or are upset, this is one fan who will not be buying what you are selling.
Tamra, I think you are the BEST at first I didn't care for you because of Vicki she's to OLD to be hanging with you Girls the show must go on without Vicky She's sick her own family thinks she sucks. U be U do like U do girl Proud of U
HAPPY HOLIDAYS GIRL
