Their Name Is Mud

Episode 8:'s Editor handicaps the fun run and discusses the plastic surgery habits of the O.C. ladies.

Hello Orange County fans. I hope you have on your finest custom made suits or a monogrammed fun run outfit, because I'm only recapping this episode for the most stylish folks.

Work Out
After watching Terry and Heather drop $50 thousand on some custom suits, we see Tamra and Eddie working on making sure they could fill fine threads with beautiful bodies (maybe Terry should have joined, he was super shocked about fitting into a 36). Eddie seems to find all this working out extremely sexy, while Tamra finds it all very therapeutic. Tamra's actually thinking of opening a fitness studio, and she'll be able to move around the studio with ease since she'll be lighter in the boob department. I have to point out the greatest of Eddie's facial expressions and laser focus while Tamra was working out. As she discussed her recovery time he really enjoyed those final moments with her larger breasts. Thankfully she still has a hydraulic behind and he is especially limber, so everything should be fine.

Later Tamra does take a moment to help Heather work on her fitness (In her ridiculous house). Heather, despite her mud mask look, is amped for a mud run. I'm super jazzed to see how this all works out, since I can't think of anything less fun than running around in mud, but I think these gals can handle it.

And In Good News
I'm not going to say anything more about Briana than what a relief! I'm so happy she got a clean bill of health and I'm sure Vicki feels much the same. Congrats B!

Buy a Nose
Gretchen goes to visit Alexis, only to find her wearing a SARS mask. Alexis is a little less than thrilled with the time-table of Gretch's visit, which might be why she made her look at those mucus photos (ick!). Once the gals get past the phlegm discussion, Alexis mentions that she plans on talking to Tamra once she's fully recovered. It's a rough spot, with everyone feeling bristled about the new friendship dynamic, and we'll have to see what all works out.

And then all is revealed. After a very tender, touchy removal process, we finally see Lex's new nose. And she loves it! She's breathing massive amounts of air and ready to debut her new nose on the news.

Tough Mudders
Finally the day arrives for our 'Wives to take it to the dirt. Slade has drilled holes into his shoes, and Ryan has gotten an amazing bandana for the occasion.

But one pit later, Gretchen takes a tumble and thinks she's sprained her ankle. The gang carries on, while Slade and Gretchen meet with the medics to see if she's going to be too hobbled to perform with the Pussycat Dolls.

The gang is only two mudpits later when Eddie takes a tumble from some monkey bars and breaks his finger. Who would have thought that Heather would have made the one to make it out of the whole run unscathed?

It's good because it lead to him getting to hose down the ladies, which I'm sure Terry thought was worth the whole rigamaroo. The other boys spent their after run time trying to one up each other with clavicle fractures and Tour de France stories. Oh men!

The Finish Line
After all that running, we see Vicki sititng down for dinner with Brooks. After some light-hearted discussion about fish and Vicki-tinis, her divorce comes up. It's a reminder of the process that you go through during a divorce, and how it takes more than just signing a paper or packing up to end a relationship. It was super sweet to see Brooks giving Vicki loads of support, and saying he was the best for her (and of course begging for some PDA). He also taught me the joy of the phrase "what-the-f-ever," so yay Brooks!

Tamra, meanwhile, is off to sign the papers to finalize things with Simon. As happy as she is to get it over with -- she gets pretty emotional. I wonder if divorce lawyers go through loads of tissues (it was nice of them to have it handy). In the end, Tamra pushes past her doubts and signs the paper. Thankfully Vicki is just a phone call away to give her the support she needs.

Next week Alexis returns to the news and things get nutty at the bowling alley. Until then, let me know if you'd do a mud run. Leave your feelings on filthy workouts in the comments.

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.
