When she met George, she was so happy, and I in turn was happy for her. I wanted only for her to find love again, and for her to be happy. When she told Tamra I was jealous of her being happy, is again just a blatant lie. The real reason why Lauri got upset with me is from while she was dating George -- which you'll have to watch to see. The truth is I was trying to protect her and not hurt her when I was told some "not so nice" information about George that I did not feel the need to pass on to her. I was trying to protect her, but it backfired and I thought it was over and done with as this happened over seven years ago. Lauri is bitter and has come back into our group for one reason only, and it's to stir up trouble – and to try and get back on our show. I had seen her for several years after that "situation," and never once did she mention this to me until now. I guess she doesn't have much going on in her life anymore and wanted to come back with a vengeance. In any event, I'm happy she's happy –- but one thing I will not tolerate is LIES. Stay tuned!
I was very proud of Tamra doing her first speech at the women’s expo. Having done many public appearances and speeches myself, the first one is always the hardest. I think she did fabulous and am very proud of her. When she mentioned she attempted suicide at the age of 21, I was very shocked and sad to hear this. I never knew this about Tamra, as any attempt on ending your life is only a cry for help. I'm glad to know that she did get professional help and I was somewhat surprised that she never told me about this before.
