Vicki wonders if she handled the Tamra situation as best she could, and apologizes for Heather's tough year.

on Aug 12

I’m sorry I missed my blog last week, I was actually out of the country on an award insurance convention in Whistler, Canada. It was a great trip, but always good to be back home.

Briana's little baby Owen who is now four weeks old has had a rough week. He was in the hospital for a few days with a fever and a respiratory infection -- and was discharged today. I've been fortunate to go to OKC every few weeks. Now that she has two babies under two years old she really can use as much help as possible. Please keep Owen in your prayers and he recovers.

Now onto Bali. I am not that fond of heat and humidity (bad frizzy/curly hair), or a callous fish eating pedicure, a monkey petting zoo and any type of friendship betrayal. I had thought we would go on this spiritual journey to relax, pray, and simply bond together as girlfriends are supposed to do. Boy was I wrong!

This was a tough episode for me to watch, because I hate conflict and looking back I don't know if I handled it correctly with Tamra. Hindsight, maybe I should have gone to the restroom to discuss with her privately about what the other ladies had told me about her. I was so hurtand so upset that I really wasn't interested in hearing her side of the story. I mean. . .Why would they lie to me about it?

Tamra saying that I wanted to her to "go down" isn't the truth. I'm tired of her causing problems and never being called out on it because of people fearing her backlash. Every season and every year, she has gone after someone. I don't know if that's for the show or if it's really how she is. I cherish my girlfriends and their trust, and there is NO way I ever had any desire to see her "go down" or be hurt this year. What I do know is that Tamra is known to stir trouble with someone every year -- and I for one am tired of it. I really didn't have much compassion for her after hearing what she had been saying about everyone.
