A Little Too Much Reality

Tamra explains why she was dreading this episode and gives her thoughts on the Peggy/Alexis situation.

The one episode we were dreading. . .yikes. . .a little too much reality!

The argument we had was a little deeper than what the viewers saw. Alcohol and the cameras just added to the situation and things got crazy.

Earlier that day Eddie had taken his whole staff out for employee appreciation day. . . on a boat! He got sea sick and the last thing he wanted to do was get on another boat. So, he started drinking to make himself feel better. Eddie is not a drinker, so when he started getting chummy with Vicki, I was throw off a little by his behavior. I know how I reacted was wrong, and he wasn't hitting on Vicki. When I put Brooks' hand on my breast I did it for the shock factor and really didn't expect Eddie to get mad since Vicki and Brooks are like family, and I was totally joking. I'm not going to lie, it was getting a little annoying seeing Vicki and Eddie being a little too chummy. I know in my heart that nothing was going on. I just had a moment. . .and not a good one!

Vicki was a good sport and knew I was joking and laughed it off. When Eddie got mad there was this awkward silence and I thought "Oh crap what have I done, IT WAS A JOKE." Bottom line, we recovered quickly and there is now a running joke -- "I'm the owner of that hot dog stand (Eddie) and no one is going to be touching his buns."

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.

The drama between Peggy and Alexis is beyond repairable. Peggy was friends with Jim and Alexis for four years and asked Jim if she could tell Alexis about their past relationship -- and he kept saying "No." I know for a fact that Peggy felt bad for keeping it a secret, and I'm not saying what she did was right. She put herself in a bad situation by being friends with them and not saying anything to Alexis. But for Jim to keep it a secret from his wife and bring Peggy around was straight out wrong. Alexis keeps justifying it by saying they don't talk about their past relationships. That's all fine and dandy in my book, as long as your past isn't in your present. I think with all that has happened between them it's safe to say they won't be friends again. Me and Vicki always joke -- "If I find out you slept with my man I'll kill ya."

I thought Gretchen's breast cancer photo shoot was beautiful. As you know, I don't think there is anything wrong with showing some skin for charity. Speaking of giving back, me and Vicki have started a wine of the month club called Our motto is "women giving back to women." A percentage of the proceeds will go to breast cancer research and battered woman's shelters. We have been working very hard and can't wait to share it with everyone.

Sorry for the short blog but life is crazy right now. I will be on Watch What Happens: Live next Tuesday. See you next week!

Let's chat on Twitter and Facebook.

Shannon Settles the Score

If Andy's asking "What's the score, Shannon Beador?" Shannon thinks she's definitely won.

This is Blog #20, my last Blog for the season! The past year was been a wild ride for both me and for my family. I have come to many realizations about myself, made lifelong friends, experienced some tough moments, and embarked on a path to a more peaceful self. So to use Andy’s phrase, “What's the score, Shannon Beador?” I would say without a doubt that I have definitely won.

I am happy that the viewers got a little glimpse into my sometimes unconventional ways! For me, it's all about good energy. I love that Vicki’s business has clearly benefited from trying feng shui with Elaine Wright. If you can't get hurt, there is no reason to try anything holistic. If you actually benefit, why wouldn't anyone want to go the natural way? If my children tend to feel better after seeing Dr. Moon and not have to take antibiotics, then I am a happy mom. It's all about creating a healthy balance!

I am an open book and am often criticized for it, but I am who I am. I don't know many couples married for 13 years that have a perfect relationship. Everyone has ups and downs, and although it may be difficult and require effort, it is possible to move through it and make things better. I have said it many times in the season that divorce is not an option. I will always fight for my marriage and my family. It truly touches my heart that so many fans have been and continue to root for David and I. I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your positive comments! Thank you!

Do Tamra and Heather truly want to move forward and potentially develop a friendship with me? Only time will tell. But for now, I have amazing friends surrounding me, including Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek. And most importantly, I have been blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. That is where all of my energy is focused.

I will never forget this entire year, both the good and the bad, because each moment took me on the journey to where I am today. And today, I am in a phenomenal and happy place. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
