I'm Just Being Honest

Tamra stands by her argument with Alexis, but apologizes for throwing Terry under the bus.

I am on my way to Mexico, not to be confused as Costa Rica, looking at wedding destinations. So, I will get straight to the point.

First of all I would like to say. . .Vicki, I brought you coffee every time I visited you. Just saying!

When Alexis asked to meet me I said "no" at first. I figured she just wanted to start some drama, and I was not up for it. So far this season I have tried to bite my tongue and rise above most of the drama, and I didn't want to go there with her. I knew I had strong feelings and I was not able to hold them back. Therefore nothing good would come out of it. I know that we will never be true friends, and I was OK with that. Not everyone needs to be friends.

After thinking about it for a day or so and talking with Gretchen, I decided "what did I have to lose"? Lets get one thing straight, I do not hate Alexis. I actually feel sorry for her. Sure you see me rip on her about the things she says or does, but honestly off camera she doesn't ever enter my mind. Her priorities are so screwed up which makes her very hard to be around. I tried for two years to get to know her. I invited her to my home for parties and to workout with me. It's just not in the cards for us.

I think she is beautiful and oftentimes has a kind heart, but the other stuff she does and says is just hard to tolerate.

When I say she is fake I am not talking about her appearance. I don't judge people by what they look like. I learned a long time ago you can't judge a book by its cover. I think she is a very pretty girl with great fashion style -- but she doesn't have a clue. I actually see a little of myself in her ten years ago in regards to her being so insecure.

As a viewer you see her as the dingy blonde that is harmless and tries to live by the Bible. Whats wrong with that...Right? Nothing if that was truly her!

When I call her fake it is because what you see on TV is NOT what you see off-camera. We are on a reality show and we are hired to be REAL people. Not to put on a show of what we think is more interesting for the viewers. I take this job very serious as I do every job I have in life. You can say a lot of things about me but one thing you can't say is that I act fake or I don't do my job 100 percent. I will show you the good, bad, and ugly. I am not worried about being the richest, smartest, or prettiest Housewife. I am just me and I want people to know that everyone has problems, if you're on TV or not.

Why do I call her fake and pretentious? I could give you a list of reasons (including rented lifestyle, her “careers,” attempts to look popular, etc.) but the thing that really makes me upset is the way she talks down to people at stores, restaurants, the girl that designs her dresses, etc. I am a person that does not care if you pick up my trash or perform surgery on me -- everyone should be treated the same. There is so much more but I will save it for the reunion show that we film in two weeks.

Some of you asked me if I was too hard on her and my answer is: First, she asked to meet me and to confront me on our issues. I did not ask for this. I told her up front I was going to be brutally honest with her, and I was. I am not one to sugarcoat my feelings and she knows that. Other than the show, Alexis is not in my life at all. As you will see in upcoming episodes I am not the only one that is annoyed by her. . .

I am sorry if I hurt her feelings. It was not my intention. Sometimes I have a hard time remembering not everyone has thick skin like me. Again, it is not my intention to hurt her -- maybe just open her eyes.

Most of all, I am sorry for repeating what Gretchen told me. After 45 minutes of arguing with her I was so frustrated, and it just came out of mouth. I threw Terry under the bus and that was not cool. I am truly sorry for that.

I am opening a fitness studio and very excited about it. With all the filming, the successful launch of, and juggling three kids and their schedule it has been very challenging. My passion is fitness and has been since I was 18 years old. I have always wanted to have my own studio, and now I am finally doing it. I have spent a lot of time doing research, drawing up a business plan, and making sure that I know exactly what I'm getting myself into.

Eddie has been a great help. With almost 20 years of fitness experience, he is very knowledgeable. Eddie, who helped opened and now works with his father running a very successful family law firm, also teaches spin classes twice a week. He is a competitive cyclist and a active member of Entrepreneurs Organization. I couldn't have a better person on my side to help me make this happen.

I will keep you posted on the progress of my fitness studio. Here are some of the classes we will be offering: Spin, TRX, Bootcamp, Zumba, and Kickboxing to name a few.

Thank you so much to Ethan at Bird Rock Fitness in San Diego for letting us pick his fitness brain. I feel like we walked away with a lot of great information. I also would like to thank Amy at Ladera Ranch Dance Academy for letting me use her studio to audition trainers.

Have a great memorial weekend

Tamra Barney

Lizzie: Tamra Doesn't Fight Fair

Lizzie thinks Tamra's comments about her children were meant to deflect from her own problems.

Happy Labor Day!!! I am going to make this blog short and sweet. It’s a holiday and I am going to be spending the day with family in Newport wearing a Sun Kitten and a smile. I hope you all are having a great holiday weekend.

To be honest, the second half of the Reunion was hard to watch. I think it got too ugly. I am not going to insult any of your intelligence in explaining this episode. We all know that misery loves company, and "projection" is as easy to spot as a $2 dollar bill. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that everything miserable that comes out of Tamra's mouth is a direct reflection of what is going on in her life. In my opinion, children are off limits. It's quite apparent that Tamra does not fight fair and when all else fails she will throw your kids, marriage, and even your body under the bus in an attempt to hurt you. We filmed the reunion for over 10 hours and after listening to so much ugliness my heart just couldn't take it anymore.

I do not regret telling Shannon all the things that Tamra said about her. Everything I shared with Shannon was something that happened and was said on camera. I didn't take anything and create unnecessary drama. I would do it again in a heartbeat and I would think my friends would do the same for me. I simply did not know the truth about Tamra. Danielle told me all the things Tamra said about me. That is why after my birthday I was so hurt by her. It's hard for viewers to understand because these things weren't in the show. She could have called me and said she wasn't coming. I called her after sitting on the bus for over an hour. The next day she made fun of me to Danielle, in addition to asking plenty of questions looking for negative details regarding my party.

On that one-year free membership to Cut Fitness: Let's delve into this shall we? I was the one that contacted Tamra days after my party. She did not contact me to give me present. I had invited Tamra, Eddie, Danielle, Joe, Heather, and Terry to the Kentucky Derby and Tamra was the only person that had not sent in the RSVP. It was past the deadline and it was getting borderline rude at this point. Tamra, in fact, was making fun of the Kentucky Derby and the charity event that would be hosting us to Danielle. So, I reached out to Tamra regarding the Kentucky Derby and she texted me back saying, "I want to give you a free membership to CUT for your birthday." Tamra knows I am already a member to a sports club and that was the last I heard of this "free membership." I never received any kind of certificate or card for membership. I suppose she thought I would have the gall to show up and say, "I got a text message from Tamra for a free membership!" It's almost laughable. Needless to say, I don't go to her gym and she didn't attend the Kentucky Derby with me.

There is nothing else to say regarding the Shag, Marry, Kill game that I haven't already discussed in great length in any of my previous blogs. I said the word "marry" and that's that. Tamra even glared at me on the way out of the Valentine's Party and repeated it. "Marry you?" Tamra has said multiple times she couldn't even remember because she drank too much and there are even text messages where she says it too. Her story changes continually, like the words that come out both sides of her mouth.

During the Reunion, Tamra said many more hurtful things that you didn't see. She went on to talk about my son Preston and my marriage. We all remember the episode in the park where Preston hit me on the head with his elephant. He was asleep in the car and he had a mini temper tantrum. He was three -- it happens. I would assume most mothers have had it happen at some point. In addition, my husband and I got in a fight on my birthday. I feel awful about it, yet it made us closer. I just wanted what every woman wants -- to feel special because of her man. I am a big time believer in learning from your mistakes and that won't ever happen again. However none of those incidents had anything to do with Tamra. But on her quest to hurt everyone, she managed to drag in some irrelevant topics. I know it's all to deflect from what's going on in her life and to make someone else look bad. . .but it does hurt nonetheless. My babies and my marriage are my life so I guess her goal was to attack the things closest to my heart because she can't fight fair.

I hope you enjoyed this season and I hope you had a fabulous summer!!! The fall is my absolute favorite time of year, so I say bring on football and cooler weather.
