Vicki, Lauri, Snow Angels, and Hot Uncles

Ep 14:'s Digital Producer debates what Vicki means when she calls Lauri "a piece of trash." 

Hello little snow angels. I hope you are wearing your finest q-tip-style, '80s snowsuits and ready for action on the slopes. There's no time to learn to ski though, instead you'll be spending the time defending your explaining you've never had a threesome and swearing you were only under the covers watching a movie. Let's recap the Whistler whoop-ti-do.

Blame Canada
We open with Lydia getting her make-up done by a wonderful sprite (I loved her makeup artist's headband/hair). Lydia's assembled all the gals to head to her homeland so she can extol the wonders of the great north and try to use maple syrup to bind them together. Alexis is coming as well, and equipping her with a Swarovski-studded Bible to keep the drama at bay. One wonders how many rhinestones a Bible requires to keep this trip calm. Based on previous experience, I'd say bling it up.

Meanwhile Tamra and Heather are shopping for the necessities for the trip. Heather's preparing for a very truncated trip (Six hours. She's got to hustle back to shoot Malibu Country) and Tamra is terrified that Lauri's chatter about Vicki having a threesome will come back to haunt them on the slopes. Tamra does make a decent point -- if the woman can't say vagina aloud, how much experience do we think she has beyond handling her own? The other ladies also do some packing, Gretchen has a great ski outfit that to me looks right out of Speed Racer, Alexis has gloves with a built-in ring, and Vicki has the fun bus all gassed up.

Double Booked
Soon enough the gals are all on the bus to the hotel and already working to hook Vicki up with Lydia's hot uncle. It's then that Heather decides to mention she'll only be in Canada the length of 12 half-hour sitcoms. She's got to get back to act with Reba! And she uses this time to mention that Gretch may have been fibbing about the casting call. And so the discussion of if she was every cast arises.

Oh and Alexis got a part too. It was like an episode of Oprah. You get a part on Malibu Country, and you get a part on Malibu Country! EVERYONE GETS A PART ON MALIBU COUNTRY!

Karma and Greg
Once the gang gets settled it's time to entertain hot Uncle Greg. Thankfully Vicki is distracted by Greg's hockey player build and doesn't notice the thick tension between Lauri and Tamra. Un-thankfully, Lydia is not pro Vicki marrying into the family. Oh come on! Can you imagine having Vicki as an Aunt? Can you fathom the delightful holidays with Lydia's mom Judy and Vicki prepping the turkey. There is no quota for crazy in families.

After unsuccessfully getting Vicki and Greg married off and living in a maple tree house, the gang goes to bed -- and Heather goes to Los Angeles. The next morning the women head off to the slopes to do what nerds do: ski. (I'm not sure why Lydia thinks skiing is a nerd sport. I always thought nerd sports were things like Mathletes.) They've prepped with a "concierge" (pronunciation debatable) and cleaned their ears with Gretchen's headwear. 

Is anyone else not surprised that Vicki was on the ski team and immediately talking big game about skiing. Sadly, she's the first one with "t--s on the ground" on the ant hill. Also, I'd be remiss to miss the opportunity while we are discussing Vicki's klutzy ways to not point out this clip of Vicki's biggest, literal falls.

A Slippery Slope
And before the girls could have their apres ski hot cocoa, Tamra revealed what she had heard through the grapevine about Vicki's "personal, sexual" past. As you would imagine, she did not take this knowledge lying down -- first bringing up her grievance to Gretchen.

Whoa to Vicki saying she and Donn did cheat on each other, but before you can even process that, Lauri skis up, and all icy hell breaks loose.

So that went well. You'll have to wait until next week to see if Lauri, the "piece of trash" according to Vicki, comes to dinner despite Vicki uninviting here. What did you think of Slope-gate? Who was in the right? Or did you like Lydia go make snow angels during the drama? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

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.
