Tamra doubts she has enough sway over Vicki to have stopped her friendship with Alexis.

on Apr 17, 20120

It was nice of Vicki to stop by and see how I was doing after surgery and to catch up on what I had missed. But I guess she was not a fan of me removing my implants. She didn't understand why anyone would want to be part of the Itty Bitty Titty committee. Oh well, I guess little boobies are not for everyone. I happen to love my new '70s Disco boobs! Sometimes less is more. . .right? I think there are a lot of big busted woman that would love to have their implants or natural Ds made smaller. Big boobs are just not fun! Tip of the day ladies, your old implants make great ice packs.

I was so bummed that I did not get to go camping. I have been trying to put together that exact trip with the girls for three years and it has never worked out. Go figure it worked out when I was not able to go.

I have plans to take the kids to ElCapitanCanyon.com this summer and we can't wait. There are a lot of other things to do there besides sitting around a fire drinking. Like bike rides, concerts, whale watching, jeep tours, rock climbing, horseback riding, and kayaking. It really is an amazing place, from what I hear.

I was pretty upset to hear Vicki say that she likes Alexis now because "I am not in her ear telling her NOT too." What the hell does that mean? Do I have that much influence over Vicki? Does anyone have that much influence over Vicki? That is the biggest crock of s--t I have ever heard in my life.

I totally agree and think everyone who gets them eventually grow out of that stage and now they aren't so Important. I want mine out so bad however financially I can't get it right now. I am Praying for the day I can have them removed. Could you tell me a little about your scarring, sorry to be so forward in asking I just want an opinion of someone else like you. He said I'd have a lollipop scar which makes me nervous. I really pray I can have them removed in this year. Trying to change and become more healthy and wanting to appear smaller and not so massive when the rest of me is not big. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

Tamra, you're in a better place this year and you have a good man by your side. Just rethink what you say about your "friends". Some of the things you are saying on the show are making you look "two faced". Never say anything about a friend, that you can't say to their face.

All I wanna know is if there are any pics of your BEAUTIFUL hairdo from the wine and cheese party! I have a gala to go to this weekend and need a pic to take to my hairdresser! That was the prettiest hair of all the chics!!! I went through that episode's pictures and could not find any, only side views, nothing good enough to show the full beauty!

Tamar, you have Brooks spot on. Brianna and Michael's first impression of him, that intuition, that is God speaking to them, and they also had it spot on. Brooks is the classic man that hangs around the charity functions and pretends to be wealthy, then sucks up to the wealthy widows, turning into a high paid escort of sorts. Classic. The fact that he had researched the past shows to learn that Vicki at one time was planning to purchase a yaught speaks volumes! Any time the woman has to pay for the trips, buy the man's clothes, and he has to stay with her friends rather than afford a place of his own......those are HUGE red flags. The fact that she would write a letter to a judge on his behalf on a delinquent child support matter is just the epitome of hypocrit. You are right , she has a VERY poor understanding of what that word means. How sad that she was rude about Brianna and the war hero, while she is pushing this bumb down the throats of her children, having parties , speaking of him, WHILE her husband was still living in her home.

Tell her to donate some of her Wines by Wives money to research on the health issues that plague Slade's little dying son. Then I will believe she is sorry.

She said on camera she was only going to apologize to "confuse them", she is not making a mockery of Gretchen, she is making a mockery of herself. She sets a very poor example. No wonder her daughter didn't want her mom raining on her parade. Look how she took the announcement of the marriage and turned it into the Vicki show. You are well rid of her. She needs some self reflection before she can understand friendship.

You look better than ever after the breast reduction. It seems like you've lost weight, too, but you look more slender and even more youthful. Big boobs tend to make a woman look older, especially over 35. You're not itty bitty, you're just right for your body. Amen, sister. There's way too much obsession over mammary glands.

love the new boobs. you do not look bloated anymore! i have g's, naturally, and can't wait to get them reduced to c's. can't find nice tops, back hurts all the time, etc. you know the drill. so stay with natural all the way! what i did get done is vagina cause 3 kids ripped me apart.

I completely agree! Vicki has her own mind, and can make her own choices. She is a successful woman, so she can chose who friends are...

I love you and Eddie being together!!! It gives all us divorcees with children the hope that 1 day we too might have that same chance at love! Eddie is the BEST thing that has happened in your life, besides having your beautiful children! If you can try to be friends with Gretchen, would you please make an effort as well to just be friends with everyone....your in a different place today than 2 years ago, let the past be the past and be a good example to all the OC housewives!!!!

Tamra, I would like to say you need to grow up. You're a mother. Vicki is your friend. Vicki is a 100% woman. I have respect for her. She has her own. Try it.

I'm not a fan of Vicki, but I'm not claming to be her friend. This is the second time you've done this to her. She actually not the one making comments about you being friends with Gretchen, you're the one saying she's upset. You're not a very good friend.

Tamara, Good job on the implant removal. You look slimmer and in proportion.

Vickie! OMG! She is mentally imbalanced. Eddie is not a phony, but Vickie's bro-mance with him is sickening. She is a phony. It is an insult to a sweet guy like Eddie, he seems to believe she is real and she is not.

And, good Lord! You are so spot on regarding Brooks. OMG that stupid name! There is something not right about him. It would be interesting to look into his life, like what is he really doing to earn a living?? HMMMM

I'm so glad you're happy about taking out your implants. You're such a tiny girl that your boobs made you look bigger than you really are. They look so much more in proportion to the rest of your body. You look great!!

Tamra,

Something has happened to you from 2 seasons ago. You have "grown up" and I am loving your spririt and your quirky sense of humor. The idea to reduce the boobs to your normal size was smart....you look great and you seem genually happy. It is a pleasure watching you now.

tamra .. i dont want to sound rude or anything .. but to be honest i would be so careful of vicki because i think she is 2 faced .. and i love that you are with eddie .. i live in the uk so i am quite far behind .. but what i have seen so far is that .. i think u should have a bit of distance between vicki because im not sure about her .. i think vicki is so nice and can be a nice women but some thing she says to get me and annoy me .. and i love you and eddie .. he is so nice 2 u and caring a hell of alot better than simon .. coz eddie lets you be yourself have fun and does not control you .well what i watch it dont look like that .. im so happy for you and you are a stunning women .. i love you on oc and i hope u continue to be funny .. when u are having fun

I loved Tamara and her son in the apt and furniture store. Too cute. She goes, son you can't just sit in the chair in front of your computer. Duh...when have I heard that, when my own son and his roommates turned their kitchen into a computer area too...thats the new generation!

Tamera, Thanks for being so decent. Producers think we want to see trainwrecks, I don't .I like comraderie and fun. That"s what this season brings. I swore after last years reunion I would stop watching. I wanted to make Vicki and Tamera dolls and stick pins in them. I hate the cattyness and the mean girls that every frenchise seems to have. I only watch the feel good shows now. OC finally feels good. Except for Jim ew, yuck!

Just saw the Watch What Happens After Show.

Please do not encourage Andy Cohen to do Botox.

A big part of Andy's charm is his expressive face, Botox would ruin that.

Andy doesn't need to look like a frozen-faced Ken Doll.

Have a nice day.

Tamra, once again you've proven to me that you are my new favorite housewife. You are seriously a changed woman. Eddie is the best thing for you and I am so happy for you! Most of all, your new boobs look amazing. They're the perfect size for your tiny cute body. You look beautiful!

Tamra,

You are the most beautiful woman on this show but you need to stop making negative comments about others. It only makes you look bad. We know who is smart, who is dumb and who has controlling husbands. Be happy and Eddie is a gem! Enjoy your new life and drop the negativity.

Hi Tamara! I love your upfront approach to life. I too, like to call it like I see it but that doesn't always go over well. Some people have a hard time hearing the truth! Stay true to who you are! Love the show!!!

Why don't you wear your natural hair color? The bleached out look is so-o-o tired, it makes you look old, tarnished, nasty, and brittle. It's as fake as your silicone breasts. You are very vulgar.

Tamra,

You are so right! I've got natural 38Ds and I would love them reduced to 34Bs. Clothes would fit better, I could run and exercise more comfortably and, I think just as you said, small boobs are going to be back in style again! I really don't care, I just know my back and neck would stop hurting! But, my husband loves them so --- I'm stuck!

Don't know if you read your comments but had to say I am sorry about Eddie 's pinky finger. As I sit her typing (with one of those pens for electronic devices!) I did the same thing 9 weeks ago :( Not Fun. Hope you both heal fast :)

You're by far my favorite on the show! I love your sarcastic sense of humor (that some STILL don't understand) and your sharp tongue! I love that you call it as you see it! No reason to gloss over everything, right?

Good for you for getting your Implants removed! I had mine removed (they were D's), and since I'm so lean from working out, they looked even bigger than that. Frankly, I wish I'd never gotten them, but I can't go back now.

My body looks MUCH better, and I'm much more comfortable with my B-cups instead of the bigger ones.

To be honest, when you have a BEAUTIFUL face and body like you do (and you do! :-)), you really DON'T need to worry as much about having great big ole fake breasts. The women who truly *need* big breasts are ones with unattractive faces and slightly more dumpy bodies. (they're also the ones who couldn't imagine not having them)

Hotties are hotties, whether they have smaller or larger breasts! So rock those B-cups - you look great!

Tamara, I love the show, but you are so mean! Get real and get some help. Your so mean at the reunion! And honey Im hear to tell you .. Your not all that! Its women like you that give us a bad name. Do you ever do anything kind for anyone? I'm a big fan however if you were replaced , it would be no lose to the show.

Tamra, when you always feel the need to *rag* on someone else, it doesn't speak to their charachter...just yours :/ Stop talking about the other women...grow up....MEAN girl!!

Tamara, you are super fun to watch, especially in your interviews...but I have to agree with some of the comments on here...you have sort of turned into the mean girl and it is a little hard to watch. I don't understand how you all talk about each other while you are only feet away! That does seem REALLY like high school, yikes! Glad I am not Alexis.

You are definitely right! I have natural Ds and they are hard to get around with! I wish I could get them reduced! You look great with or without implants because it's all about confidence and you've got that! I've been watching the show since season 1 and I've always loved you! My husband thinks I'm a lot like you so maybe that's why :) I don't think youve changed too much like everyone says, maybe just happier now but of course I'm going off the tv show... Keep staying strong and much much love to you, your sexy new man and beautiful children!

Tamra, your boyfriend Eddie is the only that doesnt say any negative comments about anybody in the show. He's a good man. Heather's husband love's to talk smack about Alexis.

Glad you removed the implants - I think you look more natural and beautiful. I totally get what you are feeling with Brooks, but at this point, I'm thinking Vicki deserves the likes of him.

You've always been my favorite housewife. Watched an old episode last week and you were sooooo different when you were married to Simon - you are much more expressive and happy now. Congratulations for taking your life back from an emotional abuser. So many women live unhappy lives and think they have to stay and take it. Thanks for being such a fun inspiration for women.

P.S. Also thanks for bringing natural boobs back into vogue :) You look much thinner and more feminine. :)

Tamara, But out, Vicki is a very big girl, she doesn't need your help! You're such a phony, time to leave the show...PLEASE!

Tamra - I do not understand where anyone gets off calling you and Heather "mean girls"! Your not mean, you two have common sense and are not fake women. Your strong, smart, and have enough confidence to tell it like it is! I do feel that Vicki has not been supportive of you recently and the choices that you have made. I think that a lot of this has to do with her own "crap" that she has going on in her life. It doesnt make it right, but now that Brianna is better, hopefully she will pull her head out of her ass. Love ya

I love that you take those fake boobs off and you are a little better than befre. Maybe Eddie's goodness is rubbing off on you. You are BFS with Gretchen now because she is the most popular of the OC and you know it is smart to be on good term with her. Your nature is closer to Vicki, though. Both of you are hard and bitter and do not tolerate anything but your family and your allies. Stop picking on Alexis already. Just because she is prettier than you and dumber, you think you find an easy prey to pick on. Don't forget to save yur own soul and put the compassion holy water in your desert heart!

Tamara you've said some TERRIBLE things about Gretchen but it's ok for you two to become friends, but Vickie shouldn't be friends with Alexis because she's said some bad things. Isn't that the pot calling the ketle black.

Tamara, I think you are awesome too! I LOVE that you had your implants removed, it showed me your confidence and the power of being 'you' should really mean. This is totally off the subject but, I have been wondering FOREVER, what do you do to your nails? Are they short acrylic or just regular painted manicures or something else? I usually do the long acrylic nails but, I want to get with the times :)

Tamra, I have to say...you are my favorite on the show! You are the only one that tells it how it is and is fun to watch. You actually seem like a real person! I can't even stand to watch Vicki on the show, she behaves like a child: whining when you reconcile and become friends with heaven forbid, Gretchen! I honestly don't know how you guys are friends because she is such a weirdo (with her boyfriend) and is borderline psychotic. I really like the friendship between you and Gretchen. You seem to both have fun personalities, glad you two could put things behind you. Also, I love your side remarks about Alexis. They may be harsh, but there is truth behind them and she's not very intelligent. She constantly brags, whines, etc. Anyway, love watching you on the show!

PLEASE....its time to grow up. Get over the jealously of Alexis...you seem to have found the good in Gretchen, which was always there and should try to do the same with Alexis. GREEN is not a good color!!!

I don't see you as a bully don't really know why people say it! You are one of my favourites on the Show and Heather and Vicki. I think Eddie is the best, along with Terry. Eddie is so kind and lovely, you couldn't really have done better!! It takes a special man to take on someone else's kids.

Tamra? Why do you acted shocked about Vickie and Alexis saying they were glad you weren't there to be whispering bad things about Alexis into Vickie's ear? Because that's exactly what you would be doing, that's what you did w with Heather. You are always saying bad things about Alexis to Heather. Your a mean girl too Tamra. I will never be able to respect you after what you did to Gena at Vickie's end of the year party last year. Remember? You threw a drink in her face, then tried to say it was her that started the fight? You love the drama, if your not in it, your creating it. I almost had gotten some faith in you, when you were at the lawyer's office and realized what you had done, as far as breaking up a family, but then you weren't feeling too much remorse about it because you went ahead and signed the papers so you could be with that greasy creep Eddie. Tamra, I think people can change, life makes you change, I think that's what has happened to Vickie. The cancer scare made her change, not you.
