Welcome back to my blog. I'm going to make it somewhat "short and sweet" as I am in NYC preparing to go on WWHL tonight with Andy and need to get myself ready.
When Tamra asked me over to take a walk, I figured something was going on. When she told me Ryan was getting married and moving away, I was really shocked. I had no idea he was even dating anyone seriously! I knew how much they relied on him to work at their gym, so I’m sure it was a double whammy. All I could do was to encourage her to let go, the way I have had to do with Briana moving away. It's one of the hardest things I have had to do, and the only thing that helps is time and the ability to visit as often as possible.
When walking with Tamra, I also encouraged her to apologize to Shannon, as I really think she was rough on her. I have really come to like Shannon, and I just don't see why Tamra can't be softer towards her.
When I told Lizzie to be "careful" with Tamra, I didn't say that to be malicious towards Tamra. It was to just prepare Lizzie to take it slow. Tamra and I have been friends for six years, and she has done some things to me that have been very hurtful. I have chosen to forgive her, because sometimes I just think everyone deserves a second or third chance if they are truly remorseful -- it's the fourth, fifth and sixth chance where I start to draw the line.
When Heather and Tamra agreed to invite Shannon to Bali, I thought it was a great idea. I wasn't too sure if Shannon was going to agree to it or not when we went to dinner, but I am glad she did. You will see on the upcoming episodes how much fun we had.
