I Love Costco

Heather doesn't think anything is wrong with store-bought deserts, she just has a few problems with her caterer.

Sorry this blog is late. I actually watched the show live last night with all of you! (My screener was mysteriously AWOL.) Anyway...

The algorithm of shooting a reality show is 30 hours of filming for 20 minutes of footage that ends up onscreen . Isn't that crazy?? So imagine how many times I had to hear the words "onion rings" in thirty hours! Ugh! Truthfully, I'm not sure he even wanted the darn things, he just thought it was funny. Then to enlist Vicki??? Not necessary.

I love my husband, but as I said last week, he likes to push my buttons. The truth is, I was extremely annoyed with my caterer. (Who I've been working with for years and I do adore...) Brian specifically told Terry that he was serving steak as well (at my request in case anyone didn't care for lobsters, or if there was any shellfish allergy I wasn't aware of). So I can understand why Terry inquired about the steak. . .My ennui came from him asking over and over and over (which wasn't shown).

Also, the dessert table: Just for the record, I LOVE Costco. We shop there often and I think their products are excellent. Can you imagine though, hiring a caterer and requesting a dessert bar -- only to find out, it was all store bought? I assumed he had made all of the desserts, which is why I made that comment.

There is nothing wrong with a buffet of desserts from Costco (they were actually quite delicious). However, if you are paying a caterer for a homemade spread, it's entirely unacceptable. Infuriating!

When you throw parties, there are always hiccups and issues to be resolved. You learn from them and move on. The difficult part for me was that my husband was pointing out and highlighting every wrong turn. That's why I pinched him.

Juvenile? Yes.

Deserved? Absolutely.

Sadly, some of the most fun moments of the party didn't make it to the screen. I had a "flip book" station -- which was so fun! (You can see pictures at Bravotv.com). Later my kids came in to say goodnight (They made flip books too!) They were so cute and so happy to see everyone.

Many of you inquired about the framed records and paraphernalia on the walls in our rec room. It's all from my brother-in-law, Kevin DuBrow. Terry's late brother was the lead singer of the '80s band Quiet Riot. We are very proud of his accomplishments and thought it would be a cool homage to Kevin. So I reframed a bunch of his awards and pictures and hung them up with a few of his prized guitars.

I hope you all enjoyed the episode. Next week you will meet our newest cast member, Lydia. She's a funny, sweet girl and I'm sure you will all love her.

Until then. . .

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.
