Lauri's Trouble for Trouble's Sake

Heather is appalled by Lauri's behavior and Gretchen's big defensive reaction to the 'Malibu Country' drama.

Hi everyone! I hope you enjoyed the weekend and celebrated our country's independence safely with lots of friends and family around you! (Check out my Instagram @heatherdubrow to see how we celebrated.)

As I watch this episode I'm just stunned that there is yet another scene where Lauri talking about Vicki's alleged sexcapades. This is so beyond inappropriate. Why is she telling everyone ?

Packing for the snow. . .Brianna and Vicki are so funny together. I love their mother/daughter dynamic. And Gretchen and her "costumes." Watching Gretchen pack is hilarious. It's true, she does like a theme! Truth is, if anyone can pull off wearing a white jumpsuit, it's Gretchen!

You may be wondering why I chose to go to Whistler for only six hours. It does seem pretty ridiculous, but I really wanted to support Lydia and make the effort to at least go there, meet her uncle, and have a quick dinner with the ladies. Lydia and I had become closer and I wanted to be there for her. I felt bad that my role on Malibu Country affected my attendance on the trip and I didn't want her to think that I just blew off the trip without thinking about her.

The bus ride to Whistler. . .I had high hopes for the trip when they told me there was champs on the bus. Apparently I was wrong.

When I announced to the group that I would be leaving Whistler early and why, Alexis and Gretchen's reactions were frustrating and a little hilarious. As you can see, I told Gretchen the same thing I told the girls at dinner the previous week. I didn't say anything at that dinner that I wouldn't have said directly to Gretchen. Had she stayed for dinner I would have told her then.

This whole bus trip is exactly what bothers me about some of the ladies. Completely ungenerous and competitive.

I was aware that casting had called Gretchen, Alexis, and a handful of other ladies to check availability for a small walk-on role, which ended up getting written out of the show.

No one denies that Gretchen was contacted to check her availability. The problem comes to the difference of being "offered" and "turned down." Gretchen used the excuse of this show to try and manipulate Tamra into disinviting Alexis from wedding dress shopping. It's not true.

I'm actually sorry I had the information. I wasn't probing anyone. It was an honest question and when the casting director answered it wasn't a big deal. I certainly didn't act "unprofessionally" as Gretchen said in her last blog. This particular casting director is someone I have known for years. Gretchen's reaction to this whole thing is so big and defensive -- wonder why?

Oh Canada! Lydia's uncle Greg was so cute and such a good sport! I was glad I got to meet him.

I have to say as sorry as I was about leaving the trip early, I was very glad to miss the drama on the mountain. I am really just so disgusted about the way Lauri has chosen to come back to this group. My understanding is she was not this way before. I did love how Alexis, Lydia , and Tamra were making snow angels while the drama ensued. Lauri was trying to make trouble for trouble's sake.

The drama continues in the snow next week and you will see how the Dubrow family is doing back at home. . .So stay tuned!

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.
