The '80s Strike Back

Episode 6:'s Associate Editor addresses nose jobs, fighting in costume, and Briana's great attitude.

Welcome back to the land of crimped hair and crimped feelings. Are things more dramatic because everyone is in '80s clothes? Or would this feel just as ridiculous if people were dressed normally? Who cares, the costumes add a lovely of rad-itude to the proceedings, so let's recap shall we?

Let's Hear It for the Boys
. . .Or not. Vicki is less than pleased when Billy Slade Cyrus (that is what he looked like) arrives with the rest of the gents (and I'm super sad Brooks wasn't able to make it, I would have loved to see is outfit). And then Slade goes straight for Ricky (Mr. Amazing Flock of Seagulls cut, if you haven't seen him before), for bring up the improv, which gets Vicki even more bothered and then "exits out stage left." (P.S.: Best exit line for a party ever, start using that one word.)

But as quickly as she leaves, Vicki returns, with eyes ablaze, and starts right in with Slade. . .

The whole thing went from zero to bananas in about four seconds. "No one has any idea" about anything because all we could hear is yelling. And then Vicki leaves, and Gretchen starts crying. And as horrific as the whole thing was, didn't you just keep looking at their outfits and think they were yelling about something going missing at the mall? I don’t forsee a few bangles fixing this fallout though, so expect repercussions from Vicki/Gretchen's far longer than Debbie Gibson's career (zing!).

By a Nose
Once the Vicki kerfuffle ends, the gang starts discussing plastic surgery and Alexis' nasal surgery comes up. Dr. Terry Dubrow gives his professional opinion, not realizing that Lex is Alexis. . . and things suddenly the hot pink claws come out again.

Alexis is ready to defend her knowledge of nasal passage ways and will snot in front of you if you disagree with her. I don’t think anyone has to mucus all over the place to get their point across, but it's nice that she's willing to go that extra mile. Heather and Terry do not want to engage, and so she tries to apologize. But there's still more back and forth about stupidity and arguing with it and then Lex is angry Gretchen didn't leap to her defense.

I have to give a gold medal to Slade for begging the women to just argue in the car. Get everyone home, this night is a bust-o.

Briana for the Win
I know I've already lauded Briana this season for her coping skills, but I just need to lay some praise on her again. She's so mature in her ability to spend quality time with both her parents, while avoiding the muck of talking about one to the other. Launching into the adult relationship with your parents can be a doozie, and as usual, she navigates it with ease.

Besides dealing with all of that Briana has to face her surgery, which is going to take about five to six hours. Have all the Coronas you can now darling. You deserve them.

Hospital Corners
Tamra heads to Vicki's office for a little coffee clutch, and things are already tense. VG has fired off some texts to Gretchen, so there's no building of bridges there. Vicki feels that because Brooks works their situation is different, and Tamra's just confused about where the distinction is.

All of this pales in comparison though to the traumatics she's going through with Briana, so Vicki has to focus on the task at hand, which means getting Briana enough underwear for her hospital visit. . .

Meanwhile at another hospital, Alexis is prepping for her nose job. Jim has come along to try to calm her fears, which is good, because she is still terrified. Thankfully he's not taking her nose off and putting it on the table for a second or anything. He can just slide through her nostril, which is far more comforting. It's just like a child sticking a stick up there. No harm no foul.

We'll have to wait until next week to see how our patients end up. Until let me know who you think was the most insane at the '80s party in the comments. I'd love to know who you thought was the most extreme.

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.
