Over on the Bravo Blogs for Real Housewives of Orange County, there is already some back and forth between Heather and Shannon. Last week Shannon claimed in her blog that that she didn’t know the spooky party at Tamra’s was a costume party. She also claims that Heather abandoned her and did not introduce when they first walked in. Heather counters this week by saying that it was not a costume party and that she knew Tamra was going to wear goth make-up so due to her blemish issues she added the third eye. She said she texted the whole third eye situation to Shannon. She says that she didn’t ditch Shannon and Shannon just jumped right in the party and started chatting up the other girls. She did say that she should have made the introductions right away instead of waiting.
So, let the drama begin. Clearly Shannon is going to jump into the Vicki and Tamra plot to throw Heather from the train. Here is what Heather has to say about the most recent episode. By the way, both Shannon and Heather seem frustrated by the editing and lack of back story for some of their behaviors.
Dinner at Shannon’s house was very awkward, for many reasons, but supremely delicious! Shannon is an exceptional cook. What you didn’t see was that Tamra was not being very nice to me from the moment she arrived at the party. She turned her back to me in group conversations, made a few snide remarks and then just walked away. I also felt that Tamra and Vicki were cutting me off every time I tried to speak that evening. This made me especially sensitive and annoyed when Vicki was doing the same thing to Shannon during dinner. Not only is Shannon our hostess, but we are getting to know her, let her speak.
I didn’t join the basketball game because, honestly, at this point I was ready to go home. Tamra and Vicki were being so weird and rude to me all night, I didn’t feel welcome. When I walked in the kitchen to get my purse and say my goodbyes, Tamra said “No fancy pants here!” I was clearly not wanted. The morning after pill comment wasn’t serious, but truthfully at this point it doesn’t matter what I say. If laying down on someone’s kitchen counter at a dinner party makes you part of this “fun bus,” I will take the train.
Having said all of that, I feel TERRIBLE about talking to Eddie about the baby issue. He’s right, it’s absolutely none of my business. I think at the time I meant to be helpful. If Tamra had gone to Terry because she was worried about me I wonder if he would have taken it the same way? I’m not sure, but watching it back, it was clearly the wrong decision.
I would never do anything intentionally to hurt Tamra or Eddie. Despite our issues right now, Tamra is my friend. I am truly sorry to Tamra and Eddie for my actions. This is between them, period. On the upside, at least I gave Tamra something to actually be mad at me about.
“Friendsgiving” dinner: It’s so ironic that while cooking dinner the girls are talking about me behind my back, JUDGING me for who am, and yet — I am the one that makes THEM feel bad? I’m sorry Tamra feels she can’t be herself around me. I’ve always valued the fact that although we are different, we have mutual respect for each other and allow the other to be their true selves without judgment. Maybe I was wrong.
Lunch with Tamra: I was really happy that Tamra reached out to me to have lunch. I hate the animosity between us. I don’t understand why it started in the first place, and I want it to end. I love what Tamra said about not running away from the problems between us like she has in the past with friends, that our friendship is worth more. I feel the same way. I also told her that day that one of the things I’ve learned from her is to take more risks and try new things. Tamra is fearless and I love that quality. I only wish she had told me that I was out of line by talking to Eddie. I thought everything was cleared up between us, but not quite yet…
Because my DVR stopped a bit early, I thought maybe they would get to the Eddie and the baby topic at that lunch, perhaps on the next episode but it doesn’t look like that is happening. In other news, Vicki apologizes to Heather for talking about her behind her back. Here’s what she said in her blog.
I felt really bad watching the episode where Heather overheard Tamra talking about her “having a stick up her butt.” Heather is a great person, and the thought of any of us talking bad about her behind her back made me feel sad. Heather had a great point she told Tamra at lunch talking about the differences in people and their personalities, and to learn to accept one another the way we are. So Heather — if you’re reading this, please accept my apologies and I love you!
If she’s reading this? Apparently these ladies don’t hang out at all when they are not filming. Tamra has not blogged since her last blog about her custody problems.
