It Happens

Tamra talks about her divorce and apologizes to Alexis.

Happy 39th birthday Eddie! One more year and we will be the same age. . .right? 40, 42, 44 what's the difference? We celebrated on Saturday by wine tasting in Temecula with family and friends and had the best time. I love you baby!

Sorry I didn't have time last week to write my blog. I just want to say thank you to Jaye for letting us use her helicopter. Not only is she beautiful but extremely generous. It was an amazing experience with the best view in town. From the time we drove to O.C. airport to when we landed in LA was less than a hour. Pretty amazing! Unfortunately we were not able to fly back because the fog came in, so we had three hours in traffic, But who's complaining after such an amazing day?

Thank you God for looking over Briana! Hearing Briana was cancer-free was the answers to everyone's prayers. Briana is such an amazing girl. Wishing her health, happiness, and love. She deserves it!

This episode was both very excited and very sad for me to watch. It was exciting to see the mud run without actually being covered in mud. This was something I have wanted to do for years. This particular mud run was held at the Del Mar race track and a percentage of the proceeds went to charity. If you have never done a mud run I highly suggest you try it out. this one was short (three miles) and mild compared to some of the others.

It would have been nice to see Vicki and Brooks playing in the mud with us. I understand being in a new relationship and wanting to be with that person as much as possible. But I was missing my friend and really wanted her there. Could you imagine Vicki screaming every time she had to crawl in a mud pit. . .priceless! Next time I'm making her go with us! If there is a next time after all the injuries that went down.

It wasn't five minutes after Gretchen twisted her ankle that Eddie fell off the monkey bars and landed on his finger. When he stood up his finger had snapped in half and was pointed in the opposite direction. Terry knew immediately that he needed surgery but Eddie was in denial. He snapped it back in place and finished the race and went to lunch. He finally agreed to let me take him to the ER the next evening. Sure enough he needed three pins to put his finger back together. Seven months later it's still not fully healed.

Lunch seemed pretty strange to watch. We were all talking about old sports injuries and it really wasn't a competition in my eyes. Both Eddie and Slade are cyclists and have a lot of stories to tell. I was a little surprised to hear slade was in the Tour de France, that is a huge accomplishment and I had never heard him talk about it before. GO SLADE! At the end of the day I was very proud that everyone got down and dirty for charity -- even fancy pants who pulled off the best mud run/red carpet look I have ever seen.

Working out has truly helped me in so many ways. When I said it was like therapy to me, I meant it. It's my time to be alone and get into my head and process a lot of my feelings. If I don't workout I feel bad mentally and physically. Eddie is a huge inspiration to me. He works so much and has little time but never has an excuse to not work out. We keep very active and try to eat healthy. Our ideal date night is a night at the gym and then going for sushi.

Signing my divorce papers was the hardest thing I have done, next to the day I walked out. I look back on the past two and half years and I don't know how I found the strength to get to where I am today. It's been a long and painful journey that no one can fully understand unless they are going through it. I continue to worry about the long-term effects on my children, and both Simon and I continue to help them with their struggles.

No one wants to see a family torn apart. No parent wants to hurt their chid. But the reality is. . .it happens! We tried for many years to keep it together. We went to therapy and nothing seemed to work. Truth is we are just very different people that were not good for each other. Now the kids see their parents happy, as we have moved on. Of course they wish we could be happy together. Please check out the divorce section on my website,

Lots of talk about Alexis' nose job and rather she was denying it by calling it "sinus surgery." The bottom line is whatever she wanted to "call it" she got a great result and she can breath better. Success! A big apology to Alexis for thinking that she was lying.

I hope everyone has a blessed Easter Sunday. I will be spending it wth my family cooking and hiding Easter eggs. Don't eat too much chocolate it gives you a big butt. Just saying!

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.
