Tamra: "I Was in the Middle of Shannon and Heather"

With both friends complaining to Tamra about their argument, Tamra explains how she tried to stay out of it.

Giddy-up... Housewives!

Let's get to the dirt of things: The hoedown was a very cute idea and everything looked amazing... as expected! The view from the Dubrows' lot is beautiful.

Shannon was late... we got it! I think if it was anyone else nothing would have been said. Heather was talking about Shannon being late to everyone. So it was natural for me to ask Shannon what happened since she lived down the street. She told me that David was coaching their daughters' team, and I thought that was a legit excuse. So when Heather walked up, I thought it was appropriate to tell her what we were talking about instead of everyone shutting up and making her think we were all talking badly about her. I thought if Heather knew that Shannon was waiting on David she would understand... HMMM?

I really thought the fighting that was going on between Heather and Shannon was pretty stupid. I thought if they talked it out things would get better between them. I didn't mean they needed to talk right then and there, it was just my way of saying, "I don't want to hear about it anymore." Heather saying that I WANTED to be in the middle was the farthest thing from the truth. Every time I hung out with Heather she talked about Shannon, and every time I was with Shannon she talked about how Heather was not nice to her. I WAS IN THE MIDDLE! I found myself picking sides at times and it had nothing to do with who I liked more. I was agreeing with the person that was RIGHT and both of them had their moments. I know what it is like being around someone you don't really care about -- everything they do drives you crazy.

Vicki... really? When I saw she said "Nice to meet you" to Lizzie, I almost fell off my chair. I am starting to think she is just screwing with Lizzie. Vicki did apologize for calling her "Izzie" and I think they have moved on? When I told Lizzie that Vicki has a hard time with new girls and if she stands up for herself like she did in the limo Vicki will stop with the name calling and respect her, I was not dissing my friend but only being honest. Sometimes if you know how to deal with a person right off the bat it makes life a lot easier.

My social media is going crazy with one question: "Did you know Heather told the guy to turn up the bull?" They answer to that question is NO. Eddie and I rode the bull many times during the party and had many "English"-speaking conversations with bull operator. He told us the best way to hold on and what not to do. I felt pretty comfortable on the bull after the fifth time I rode it so by the time the viewers saw me ride it I was thinking to myself, "I got this."

The whole ride is a blur to me, it happened so fast. Something was clearly different -- duh, he had turned it up and when it threw me off, I slammed down on my forarm and suddenly felt the pain. HO DOWN! It was hard for the viewers to see how hard I hit because of the camera position. My arm turned black and blue immediately with a big knot that looked like a bone. When I got up I felt like I was going to pass out, not sure if it was from falling or the pain? Shannon called the local urgent care and made them stay open a little longer until we got there... Thank you, Shannon. The last thing I needed was a broken arm!

After the X-ray they wrapped my arm, gave me a shot in the butt for the swelling and told me not to work out for at least a week... joy! It took a good two months to feel better, but the good thing is it wasn't broken.

I get a lot of questions about franchising CUT Fitness and my answer to to that is...SOON! We are currently working with a company called Fit-Fit to have live streaming classes that you can access off your computer. If you have any questions about fitness please send your messages here!

Shannon Settles the Score

If Andy's asking "What's the score, Shannon Beador?" Shannon thinks she's definitely won.

This is Blog #20, my last Blog for the season! The past year was been a wild ride for both me and for my family. I have come to many realizations about myself, made lifelong friends, experienced some tough moments, and embarked on a path to a more peaceful self. So to use Andy’s phrase, “What's the score, Shannon Beador?” I would say without a doubt that I have definitely won.

I am happy that the viewers got a little glimpse into my sometimes unconventional ways! For me, it's all about good energy. I love that Vicki’s business has clearly benefited from trying feng shui with Elaine Wright. If you can't get hurt, there is no reason to try anything holistic. If you actually benefit, why wouldn't anyone want to go the natural way? If my children tend to feel better after seeing Dr. Moon and not have to take antibiotics, then I am a happy mom. It's all about creating a healthy balance!

I am an open book and am often criticized for it, but I am who I am. I don't know many couples married for 13 years that have a perfect relationship. Everyone has ups and downs, and although it may be difficult and require effort, it is possible to move through it and make things better. I have said it many times in the season that divorce is not an option. I will always fight for my marriage and my family. It truly touches my heart that so many fans have been and continue to root for David and I. I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your positive comments! Thank you!

Do Tamra and Heather truly want to move forward and potentially develop a friendship with me? Only time will tell. But for now, I have amazing friends surrounding me, including Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek. And most importantly, I have been blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. That is where all of my energy is focused.

I will never forget this entire year, both the good and the bad, because each moment took me on the journey to where I am today. And today, I am in a phenomenal and happy place. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
