Shocked at Tamra's Turnaround

Alexis shares her BFF Tamra and why she doesn't think Vicki sleeps around.

This episode took me through a whole gamut of emotions! From apprehension about meeting Tamra to surprise watching the women in Mexico. . .I think the theme of this episode for me could be "SHOCKED!"

When Tamra and Lydia met to discuss Tamra reaching out to me, my chin hit the floor (the first of many times this episode! LOL!) hearing Tamra say that she saw a connection between her at a younger age and me in the back of the limo. I think everyone can say they have been extremely sad at one point in their life, but for TAMRA to admit that was completely unexpected.

Then, when I received the text from Tamra asking me to meet with her, I nearly dropped my phone! I instantly thought: heck no! Why would I meet with her again? Why will this time be any different? I think it's a natural feeling to have when I had extended the olive branch twice in the past and was shot down both times. By the time I met with Vicki to discuss Tamra's text, I had loosened up a little and ready to do it.

Pulling up to the restaurant to meet Tamra, I felt my tummy do somersaults. I was so worried I may be humiliated once again, but it was too late. I was already there. Hearing Tamra say she was a little nervous prior to meeting me was a relief. Then having her stand up to hug me. . .that was absolutely shocking and once again my chin hit the floor as a viewer watching it.

I think I was so tense when we had lunch that I didn't remember everything that occurred, and her hugging me is the perfect example. It was so awkward at first. I remember thinking, "I have no idea what to say to her." Neither of us knew what to say. Once Tamra explained why she asked for this meeting, I crumbled. All the years of feeling such hatred from someone and to have that person actually apologize (in her own way), and look upset about it, my heart was relieved. Most likely we will never be BFFs, but I felt the dark hatred leaving and a fresh start beginning.

It was hysterical watching Gretchen and Heather argue over what bikini to have made for Tamra. That was like watching Laverne and Shirley!

I was confused watching Gretchen meet with Lauri. What, all of the sudden Gretchen is ok with the Lauri/Slade situation? There seemed to be a missing link there. Last I knew they weren't friendly. I also don't believe for one minute that Vicki is a person that sleeps around. To me, it was a very strange conversation.

Having Tamra pack two suitcases and not know whether she was going to tropical or cold weather was a really fun idea, although I would have been extremely frustrated with that because it takes me over a week to pack for any vacation! I also loved the girls "sashing" Tamra the minute she arrived to the airport.

The restaurant Heather chose looked amazing. However, I definitely think this group was not interested in a fancy-schmancy dinner on this occasion. It seems to have set the tone for the rest of the evening's crankiness. I probably would have left to go dancing too if the mood was going sour! I really enjoyed watching Tamra and Vicki getting along so well and whooping it up together. I would rather watch love and happiness, than fighting and cattiness.

Summer is here, and the kids are going to need somewhere to release all of their energy, so if you want to visit us at Sky Zone, be sure to book your visit online because we do often sell out SkyZoneAnaheim.com or SkyZoneSanDiego.com.

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.
