Bravo… Since both OC Housewives were so concise and covered the same topic… both Tamballs and Alexass’ BravoBlogs are included:
I would like to say “I hope you enjoyed part one of the reunion show” but it’s hard for me to say when all you get to see is a bunch of grown woman fighting. Filming the reunion show is never easy, I had anxiety just watching it and I LIVED IT. It is NOT my idea of fun to go back and relive all the things that made us upset in the past season, but thats the nature of the show.
Andy brought up the 100th Episode the second we sat down, thats when I knew things were going to get bad fast! While filming the 100th episode I was asked about the last six years I had been on the show and of course they wanted to know about my epic fight with Gretchen. It was not an easy thing to visit since we had moved on. . .or had we?
When I sat down with Gretchen two years ago I wanted to move on and thought I was being the bigger person by saying “SORRY and let’s move on.” By saying I was sorry I was NOT saying “I was lying about what I saw.” I knew what I saw and she knew it. In my 45 years of living I have realized that rumors will fade fast but lies can haunt you forever. Gretchen continues to talk about the past to everyone. It would be in her best interest to just stop talking about it and everyone else would too. The fact that she sat down with Lauri and brought it up again was stupid of her. She opened the door for everyone to revisit the story, including Alexis who had kept the secret for years.
Lauri’s threesome accusations about Vicki were ridiculous She had no proof, she said it herself. I think her exact words were “I don’t know what you guys were doing, I don’t know if you had clothes on, you could have been watching TV”. IF you have NO IDEA then why are you telling people she had a threesome?
For Gretchen to spread the rumor like wildfire was wrong. For her to say Vicki banged 12 guys without ANY proof was ignorant. Vicki is not the one with compromising pictures with another man while wearing her engagement/wedding ring. . .Hmmmmmm!
I honestly think that Lauri fabricated the story to cause drama on the RHOC. NOTE: NOOOOO!!!! ”Drama” on a Housewives show? ”Fabricated” drama on a Housewives show? Say it ain’t so…
For all of you that asked my hot pink dress was from Herve Leger, shoes were Louboutins, and jewelry from Brain at NuggetsCarats.com. NOTE: SH has been swamped with emails re Wretched’s selection… not a single request for info re Tamballs!
Sorry so short! writing my blogs this season have been extremely challenging. I just don’t have the time! My children and managing CUT Fitness is taking up every second of my day. I hope you are enjoying your summer. NOTE: Tryin’ to make a very “successful” entrepreneurial endeavor a “success” does take up time… keep tryin’!!! Maybe Tamballs made up with Jimbo to find out about one of those tiny terrors trampoline palaces!
I cant wait to share my beautiful wedding on my 3 part series Tamra’s OC Wedding airing September 2. NOTE: Received several emails asking WHY does a 45-year-old chick who’s been married twice think that anyone is gonna watch a show about her gettin’ married…
Make it a fit day!
ON TO ALEXIS BELLINO’S BRAVOBLOG!
To the couches we all go. . .
This is never a fun time for any of us. We dread it like we would a root canal. Yet, it’s inevitable. NOTE: Yes, it is inevitable… as it is in their Bravo contract. Since BubbaJax ditched the NJ reunion, if a Housewife ditches, she’ll be given da Bravo boot! Those poor Housewives…
There is so much that happened on this first reunion episode, but I’m only going to address the two topics that involved me, which are Gretchen and Lydia.
Weeks ago, when Gretchen and I met for lunch, I blogged about my feelings on our relationship, and I don’t want to re-hash that, so you can read that blog for details. To summarize, going into the reunion I felt (and still do feel) that our friendship will not recover. Can I move on? Yes, and I can also be cordial in a group setting as I have no ill will towards her. I just can’t trust her. Plain and simple. I understand what our friendship was, I am fine with how it has ended and I truly wish only the best for her.
I also understand Tamra and Vicki’s frustration. It was so hard to see Gretchen deny that anything happened when Vicki and Tamra presented so much evidence to the contrary.
Onto Lydia and I. NOTE: It’s “ME”… not “I”… oh, just fuggetaboutit! Lydia is my true friend. I guess the only problem I have is that I felt she was my true friend from the very beginning, and she doesn’t feel the same. That’s where the confusion comes in.
Before Lydia was even on the show, we were hanging out together with husbands, doing play dates, working out together. . .AND having long phone conversations about her coming onto the show. To me, we had an authentic friendship, we knew each other very well, and I felt a loyalty to her. With that said, I told her I never expected her to fight my battles with these women. And I meant it. NOTE: Awwww… doesn’t Alexass know about second-hand smoke? Lydia probably just forgot… it happens with second-hand smoke!
However, that doesn’t mean I wanted a wishy-washy friend either. If you are my friend, then you are my friend, period. When I watched the scene when Lydia met with Heather at her house, I already felt our friendship was authentic and I thought Lydia reciprocated. So to hear her say to Heather that she didn’t know me that well once Heather frowned about me, I was crushed. And confused. The next few episodes also hurt. I felt Heather confirmed my feeling when she told her that she didn’t feel Lydia acted as if we had hung out on several occasions. However, Lydia and I have discussed it, we have both shared our sides to it, and we have moved on. That’s what friends do: discuss and move on. NOTE: Seriously? ”Friends” on a Housewives show? ”Discuss” on a Housewives show? Has Alexass been watchin’ the RHOC?
Hold on tight, because this is only Part 1 of 3. I’m sure we are in for an emotional ride. NOTE: Blah, blah, blah… the upcoming show is always a “must see”…
