Welcome back! Hope you all had a great weekend!
Swimsuit shopping with Gretchen: I wanted to get a swimsuit made for Tamra with "Mrs. Judge" blinged out on the tush. Gretchen offered to bring me to her partner who she was about to collaborate with on a swimsuit line.
Understanding that Gretchen is a bikini girl, I absolutely deferred to her on many elements of the suit. But at the end of the day -- this was my gift to Tamra (Gretchen was planning on blinging out a Juicy sweatsuit for Tamra) and I wanted it the way I wanted it. Thankfully, we got it handled and I think Tamra really liked the finished product!
Gretchen and Lauri at the stables: This scene with Gretchen and Lauri was very distasteful to me. What is the point of Lauri telling all of these things to Gretchen about Vicki? I found it so base and so hurtful.
You looked BEAUTIFUL with no makeup. Honestly that scene between you and Terry in the bedroom was so cute - that's what I would want a marriage to be.Also, frankly, it was refreshing to see a Housewife without a pound of makeup and false eyelashes on!!
SaraJeanQueen I agree...with natural beauty that Heather has heck, she doesn't need it. ( I should be so lucky,,lol) Actually Heather, I'm surprised you're not more comfortable in your own skin...literally, You carry yourself with such grace that makeup should be the LAST thing you should think about,
As far as the bachalorette party went, well I wouldn't have been comfortable either. Especially when the "strippers" were giving their :"performance?" I thought it was
frightening the way that they manhandled the girls.There is no other word for it. I was surprised that they didn't edit some of that out! Jeez Louise...I've been to a couple of parties like that in the past and the men never touched the women like that..Well, I'm glad you all made it back in one piece. lol
You are so hypocritical in the way you treated Alexis and try to deny it. You are no better than all the other high-schoolers on the show. How sad.
Look you ladies wanted to go to bed And the other girls Wanted to party. Vicky named the restaurant hundred times So you should've hopped in a cab and met them over there. No you have to act like a bunch of high school kids
Simon061 Remind me NEVER to party with you. It was wrong on so many levels, not to mention rude. If you don't see a problem with that... hey, I maybe Vicki will dump Brooks for you. Wait... Simon??? Is this Tamara's ex??? Oh yes, that explains it.
SueFo64 Simon061 SueFo, did you not WATCH and LISTEN? Gretchen and hoity Heather said they wanted to go to bed cause there was a big day planned for the next day. Gretchen and Heather were whiny and childish.
I'm with you Simon. They are ridiculous and their insecurities are showing big time. Plus...Vicky said she was going with or without them...
Tamra. and Lydia decided to go with and let the others sleep...lol lol lol woohoooo !
Omg Heather Your face looking at the strippers at this bachelorette party is Hilarious!!! I laugh my ass off every time I watch it:)
I love you Heather. You always take the high road and keep everything real. I also love you and Terry relationship. Go Heather!!!!
I understand why you didn't hop in a taxi and go to Andale's: When you've been ditched you don't want to follow along like an unwanted puppy. What Vicki spearheaded was mean, childish and very, very low class.
Okay, so I still don't get why Heather & Gretchen didn't hop in a taxi and go to Andales. I mean, if they wanted to go back to the hotel and go to bed, that's fine, but then don't complain about the other women going off to party. On the other hand, If they wanted to go out with the girls, go to frickin' Andales! Vicki said the name of the bar about 1000 times over the course of dinner. Going to Andales doesn't require wandering aimlessly around Mexico. It's a tourist town. A cab driver will know. Hop in a taxi and ask to go to Andales. Heather, you seem so smart, but this one really stumped you.
It was, of course, not particularly nice of the other three to walk off, but it happens- especially when drinks are involved- and it wasn't rocket science to know which bar they were going to...
I mean, I wasn't even there and I will never forget the name of the bar: Andales. Andales. Andales. seriously. (p.s. good marketing grab, Andales!).
sarstan Like it was across the street???? You don't assume things in a place like this. Seriously... is this really Vicki posting on here?
SueFo64 sarstan jeeez SueFo, who ARE u???? They are grown women crying in the back of a limo because they had stated they wanted to go to bed, so got left.
sandi2 SueFo64 sarstan
Sandi, that was the most ridiculous display I have seen in a long time. A grown Gretchen who talks more smack than the Lord allows...crying because her lady love partied without her. I can understand her feelings being hurt but she is clearly in love with Tamra. And since then she has openly expressed her fear that Tamra and Vicky would become friends again and leave her behind. And now she wasn't even in the wedding.....
This is classic Stockholm Syndrome. Idolizing her tormenter.
The girls were totally wrong for leaving you guys behind. Vicki did that purposely to hurt Gretchen, you just got caught in the crossfire and Tamra and Lydia were just Vicki's naive little puppets acting like idiots. You and Gretchen planned the trip that was so rude and disrespectful. I lost total respect for both Tamra & Lydia however I was not at all surprised by Vicki because she is a conniving mean person that has it out for Gretchen. I commend you and Gretchen on being the bigger people and dropping it so everyone can enjoy the rest of the trip it was very big of you both.
Everyone wants to follow Tamra & tries to get her attention. It is SO obvious. The dinner was BORING and not at all bachelor material (camera does not lie). Everyone was bored to death. You & Gretchen said you did not want to go out because you had a big day planned the next day so put on your big girl panties and deal with them going on without you. The truth of the matter is you & Gretchen were hurt because you two were the "party planners" and your idea - "groupies" or should I say "bullies". YES, you all did bully Alexis - I saw it with my own eyes so quit trying to say you did not bully anyone. Get your own life and quit trying to follow Tamra around everywhere. Make friends with someone else, PLEASE!!!
First, you are not a bully, just the voice of reason that those without are unable to process. Whoever says you are, clearly are not educated on how you clearly handle everything that is thrown at you with logic and decorum! You are and will always be the balance this show needs to survive and to reach the intellectual viewers who crave logic within the emotional overload (and sometimes overacting) that others do to stay "interesting". So...I get you, and, frankly, I adore you!
I totally agree with the other bloggers you seem to be getting a taste of your own medicine but as you wanted to make Alexis issue so non relevant quit complaining and realize who your friends with bc with that type of friend you should get used to being treated like that. Love that you are always so upfront but you seem to minimize every one elses issue but when you have one it drags out for days...maybe you should try being a little bit more understanding.
Heather you are always the voice of reason......even though your feelings were hurt by being excluded......your did not feel the need to get down in the "mud" with some of the other ladies. As far as Vicky is concerned.....all I can say is.....SERIOUSLY???
I love how class you are "why are you telling me this? this is none of my business" and how you are able to articulate disappointment without using obscenely foul language, unlike Gretchen.
ughagain I agree with you 100%.. Heather is a natural classy lady. I also agree with her approach to situations with logic. Gretchen however had a problem with Vickie so she allowed that to dictate how her evening went..Personally, Gretchen kept the conversation they had in the limo so negative I would have rather
have gone to bed myself after enduring that mini tirade any longer,,lol. Laurie's hand prints were all over that and she wasn't even there! lol...
Just saw this segment and must say you look MUCH better without makeup. Your eyes look better and your look much younger. Only commented on this because you had in your blog. You actually look fresh without it all.
You're housewife tag line doesn't match you at all. you're probably the most boring woman on the show...
Alexis does not understand what it means to "bully" someone. If multiple people are criticizing you for the same behavior, it's time for introspection, not time for accusing the same people of bullying.
The point is that none of the bullies can criticize or introspect because they have constantly demonstrated disgusting behavior. If Alexis listens to their BS she runs a risk to become just like them.
I totally disagree. If you have an issue with someone, you have the intestinal fortitude to adress them one on one. To not have the nerve to do that unless you have your "gang" with you to all jump on that person at once is cowardly......and bullies are all cowards at heart.
rosyposy I totally agree with you rosyposy. Gretchen and heather are very mean spirited. I think that Heather is on the wrong show. Such a demeaning individual.
What an awkward position Gretchen placed you in Mexico. Laurie and Vicki needed to work that issue out on their own.
Vicki the old tigress is not gonna be pushed around by the cub like Gretchen. And Tammy the hyana wants to change coat. We shall see how it evolves. Lydia, the wild eyed mongoose plays being a peacemaker at the risk of her own peril. Alexis wants to be the hybrid of Princess Diana and Mother Teresa. Heather will try to maintain her conservative dignity amidst the OC wilderness. Fun stuff and it beats the Network Housewives sitcom hands down.
I like the way you are diplomatic when situations arise. However your mistake is associating with Gretchen. She is the dumps.
Grown women, all. Vicki may have been the leader, but she did not make anyone do anything they didn't want to, especially Tamra.
Heather, I think you are the most intelligent "housewife" on all of the franchises. I'm glad you appeared without makeup while packing for Mexico. It made you even more relatable. Why you're on the show, I don't know, but I really enjoy it. You have a great sense of humor and seem to be level headed. Hope you stay that way. Best of luck to you and Terry, but I don't think you'll need it. You both seem to love each other and you'll be able to work it out. Good luck, Heather. Thank you for representing "real" women.....even though most of us don't have the money you do!
Leaving the "yard gnomes" at the restaurant may have been rude, but I would have too. It was a bachelorette party not a retreat. Get over yourself and lighten up and maybe they'll want you along on the fun trips as well.
SouthNJchick "Yard gnomes!" lol!! luv it. I admire your candidness. Personally, I can't see myself doing what they did the way they did it, but I would have wanted to ditch them too.
Karianne SouthNJchick Heather is very mean and demeaning and it always have to be her way. Get over it.
Justanopinion, they could have walked down the street and went to the club as well. That's what most "grown" and secure people would have done. We would have said I know those "heifer's" (figuratively) didn't just leave us...let's go get them straight" or something like that. We (my friends and I ) would have gone there said "hey what happened? Why did you guy's just leave us...? observed the fun and joined in....we would have talked about it the next morning at breakfast. Telling how and what we thought when we came out of the bathroom to find them gone.
Did you forget the "lighten up" part means stop taking it so seriously.?.
Just...I wouldn't have to go "searching" for them because Vicky said where she wanted to go. And YES, that has happened before. In a group of friends sometime people are left and the others catch a cab and meet at the spot. Or you tell some to go on without you and you meet later. Its concerning at first to be looking and wondering but after you see they have gone you just either meet them there, find another place to party w/o them, or go back to your room and party there. Everyone are grown on this trip. The club was right down the street in Walking distance. But .... I guess if I wanted to be a "victim" and have something to pout about I would have done what Heather and Gretchen did.....lol,lol lol
I am not "defending" them...just telling you what I would have done . lol lol lol....and I am GLAD Vicky did it. lol lol lol
But you are you and you would have handled it just as The "victim's" did....I would have apologized for hurting your feelings, laughed and told you EXACTLY what I am saying now to your face. And still laughed every time your brought it up. "oh poor you.....next time I will be sure to include you in my escape from you".....lol lol lol Vicky wanted to get away with Tamra and do what they have done for 7 years together...HAVE FUN.......... She doesn't like Gretchen and Gretchen doesn't like her. They are not friends. Heather said she wanted to go back to the room and go to sleep.
