Lizzie: Tamra Is Stirring Up Sh--
Lizzie wonders why no one is holding Tamra accountable and understands why Shannon snapped.
I hope everyone is having a fabulous summer! I apologize for not having my blog written last week. I had a jammed packed week finishing up my new collection for Sun Kitten 2015, filming the Reunion, and getting ready for the NYC trip for Watch What Happens Live.
I'm writing this on my flight and I'm going to cover this week and last week's episode, which cover my dinner party at my family's beach house -- and the "take the Beadors down" comment that was said, or not said, or made up out of thin air.
First off, let me say that I had a great time planning this party with Christian. I think he did a great job rehabbing the property, and I was happy with how everything turned out. We were very excited to be hosting an event for everyone. I had the party catered by Mozambique, a local Laguna Beach restaurant. I thought the fire dancers were a great addition. Little did I know they were just the start to the night's fireworks. As everyone sat down to dinner, you could literally feel the awkward tension. Whether anyone said anything or not there was an uneasiness in the air.
What are my thoughts on the "take the Beadors down" comment? I don't think Shannon made it up. I truly believe Tamra told her that. I have never known Shannon to lie. Do I think Terry made this comment? No, I honestly don't think he said it. But here's my thing, if he did or didn't why would your very close friend say that to someone else? First of all, if it was said, and that's your very good friend, you don't repeat it. Second of all, if it wasn't said, why would you make that up? It's either to hurt someone or to instigate drama. Either way, it wasn't a good move on Tamra's part. What's strange to me is that neither Heather nor Terry got upset with Tamra. All of the blame is put on Shannon and she didn't even bring it up at the table. It seems like a contrived act to stir sh-- up! So, once again Shannon and Heather are going at it because of something that Tamra said.
I wasn't out on the balcony (aka the conference room) when everyone congregated out there. I didn't see or hear what happened until I watched the episode. All I saw was Shannon flying into the dining area and fleeing to the front door. I can see how she was frustrated. Now words are being put into her mouth and no one is even letting her talk! My only goal was to calm Shannon down and perhaps persuade her to stay. It was interesting to see Tamra first say that Shannon was clearly drunk, then plead with her that she was there to support her -- and then later both Heather and Tamra saying that she needs medical attention and clinical help. I don't think Shannon needs psychiatric help. What happened was she snapped. It happens to the best of us. Heck, I eventually snap too (but you'll have to wait to see that!). There is only so much someone can take.
After the party I reached out to Shannon because I was worried about her. I had not invested much in a close relationship with Shannon up until this point, and it was clear that I didn't know what was really going on. The math was clearly not adding up. What was very apparent was that she did need a friend whom she could trust. Shannon was very gracious and she apologized more than once for what happened at the dinner party. Heather, also apologized. Tamra, who seemed to be at the root of the drama, never apologized. However, she said she didn't even remember what happened at the party. So, I'm guessing she forgot, much like she forgot she told Shannon and Vicki that Terry was going to "take the Beadors down."
I hope everyone has a great week! Don't forget to watch me tonight on WWHL with Andy. I am shooting the 2015 Sun Kitten Swimwear campaign this week! I am so excited for you all to see my new designs for the upcoming collection.
