So Blessed

Tamra discusses how lucky she is to be with a man like Eddie and to have made it through her divorce.

Ouch! I took Terry up on his offer to surgically remove my tattoo after the several sessions of laser. The laser did lighten and blur my tattoo, but chances were it would never removed it completely. The tattoo of Simon's name was a constant reminder of my past and needed to be removed for good.

So, when I walked into Terry's office I thought it was going to be simple. I thought I would sit in one of his exam rooms, and he would do his thing. I guess I didn't give it much thought? The nurse brought me back to his surgery room with machines, bright lights, and a tray of scalpels, and at that second my stomach knotted up. I must have run to the bathroom five times before he ever started. Sorry Terry, but I have a really bad nervous stomach.

After he numbed me I didn't feel a thing. It wasn't until 1 am when I woke up with my finger throbbing that I thought. . .what the heck have I done?!?

After the procedure I had to keep it from Eddie for two days which was not easy. I knew Eddie was going to be so happy it was finally gone, but ultimately I did it for my self.

Dinner at Vintage Steakhouse was hard for me to watch. I was in such a different place then, and all I can say is, "Boy does time heal all wounds."

It was a year and half into our relationship and I was still afraid to bring Eddie around the kids. I share custody with Simon. When Simon had the kids, I would see Eddie, and when I had the kids I didn't want to share my time with them. Sure he had met them before and he would come by for dinner once in a while, but that was about it. I was so afraid that my children would be uncomfortable and that Eddie would get annoyed and leave me.

I also had a hard time with fact that Simon had moved in with his girlfriend (who the kids love) and when he had the kids she would pick them up from school. Sharing custody is one of the many struggles of divorce. I want to be the one picking up my kids every single day from school. I want to tuck them in to bed every night. I just don't have that option anymore, and it took me a long time to get over the pain. . . I'm still struggling with it. I wasn't lashing out at Simon for being happy and moving on, and NO his girlfriend is not half his age -- just much younger. I just couldn't understand how it was so easy for him to move on and so hard for me. After all, I wanted this divorce. I often wonder, do the strong people stay in an unhappy marriages or is it the strong ones that leave?

Eddie is an amazing man and has helped me with my divorce every step of the way. He is so kind, considerate, and thoughtful. He makes an effort to make my children feel like they are loved by him every day. Eddie grew up without his father, and his mother bounced in and out of his life. He understands more than anyone what its like to come from a broken home. He told me today "Babe stop worrying, all these kids need is love and support. They will adapt to all the change." I just don't understand how I got so lucky.

We now live together as a family, and nothing makes me love him more than to see him and the kids running around the house being goofy. I know in my heart that I'm in such a good place, but at times I feel guilty for being so blessed. The past two and half years have been the most difficult and rewarding time in my life. Simon and I are in such a better place and its nice to see a smile on his face now. Please check out my recent interview to hear more about my life, divorce, Simon, fitness, business ventures, and beauty secrets.

Alexis' birthday party for her twins was a very cute idea. I agree with her and gave my kids their first big party at age four when they could enjoy it. BUT what the heck was up with that speech? I'm going to try and be nice here because I have more than voiced my opinion this season on things she has said or done.

Watching Vicki and Briana argue was BRUTAL. Briana is a grown woman and I understand her being concerned, but where do you draw the line with respect? I think this scene was very raw and something they both wish never happened on camera. They both have valid concerns about the others relationship. All I can say is Briana Is her mom's daughter -- they are so alike in so many ways.

I think it is amazing that Slade wants to take their relationship to the next level, but please not with a fake ring! It's not about the size of the ring -- it's the love behind it. Of course, that is coming from a girl that doesn't care to much about jewelry. It's hard for me to understand but maybe he feels the O.C. pressure to give Gretchen a big fabulous ring? Gretchen has made it clear that she is not with him for his money so I think she would understand.

Poor Heather! She goes ring shopping with Slade only to find out that Gretchen does not want to get married. That would be a hard one to be in the middle of, but like always Heather gave great advice!

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.
