How's everyone doing? Hope you're having a nice summer. It's good to be back.
AVA BAY-BA as I call her, isn't she the cutest little red head you've ever seen? I can't wait for you to get to know her better. She is a funny little girl with lots of facial expressions and attitude. She looks just like her daddy with her mama's smile...and ears. Next week is her second birthday and you're all invited.
When I got baptized I had not talked to Lydia in some time. She had moved to Newport, had another baby, and we just lost touch. When she found out about my baptism she sent me the sweetest text and we met for lunch. As a new Christian it's really important for me to surround myself with other Christian friends, so I'm very excited about Lydia's return.
Lydia invited me to her bible study and I was a bit nervous. I didn't know any of her friends and I'm always afraid I'm going to say the wrong thing or ask the wrong question. All of her friends were so nice and made me feel comfortable. To have them pray over me showed me what true compassionate women they are and how lucky I was to meet them.
When Lydia started talking about Vicki I really didn't want to tell her all the things that had transpired last year. I'm really trying to keep things in my life positive and I didn't want Lydia to get involved. In my eyes it was over and I had moved on. Going to lunch with Vicki is not something I wanted to do and I didn't know how to tell her.
I knew when I told Eddie that Lydia asked me to go to lunch with Vicki he wouldn't think it was a good idea. We've talked about this a lot and when someone starts attacking your family there is no going back. It really does come down to this...if someone has no problem lying about their life, they will have no problem lying about yours. That's not the kind of friendships I want. She's had six months to call me and Eddie to apologize and she hasn't. If this was something Vicki felt in her heart that she wanted to do I would be more than happy to, but that's not the case. At that time I truly wished her well but I needed to remove myself from her toxic behavior.
Kasey is my beautiful niece (my brother, Kenny's daughter) and my God-daughter. I love taking her out and spoiling her. So when she told me she didn't know what she was going to wear to winter formal, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to take her shopping with Shannon and Sophie. Ohh to be young again, the girls looked beautiful in all the dresses.
It breaks my heart to see Shannon so unhappy. We have become so close over the past two years and I'd have to say she has the kindest heart and is a wonderful friend. We talk a lot about what's going on with her and I just want to see her happy with herself. I know she will lose the weight and I can't wait to see her back to her confident self.
It seems like Vicki had a lot of negative things to say about me in this episode. Here are just a few of her immature comments that truly show her character:
"Her gym that has an empty parking lot."
"Who cares about her fitness competition? Go to work."
"They're not the popular girls. We're the popular girls. They want to be like us and they can't be."
"Tamra has lots of skeletons in her closet."
Vicki is truly delusional, she insults me, my husband, my business, my fitness competition and the relationship with my daughter, just in the first episode. Then says how SHE was done wrong and how I owe her an apology. PLEASE! It's almost laughable. I think we all know why she's been called a liar.
Kelly's comment about my competition was ignorant. I would love to see Vicki and Kelly go through the training for six months and step on a stage. Everyone there was a winner in my eyes for having the discipline, setting a goal, and sticking to it. It's a lot more work than picking up weights every day, but I wouldn't expect them to understand that.
