Yes, I know the whole “GATE” thing is played out, but I’m having trouble letting it go. Remember Stiletto Gate? That was awesome. Over at the RHOOC blogs only Lizzie, Shannon and Heather have weighed in. It seems a lot of housewives just don’t even bother with their blogs these days. There is nothing really interesting in the ones that did post except for Heather’s version of Mechanical Bull Gate, but we’ll get to that in a minute. One gate I am totally over is Chair Gate, both Shannon and Heather continue to repeat their versions of that and I just don’t care. Lizzie’s blog was full of love and light for everyone and therefore not that interesting.
So let’s see what Shannon has to say about Mechanical Bull Gate:
First she talks about wishing things would have started off better with Heather and she was looking forward to getting to know a new family in the neighborhood. She plays the victim card a bit. She defends her fine party manners and ends with this:
I have been back and forth on whether I should comment on the end of the episode because it had nothing to do with me. I am, however, an honest and opinionated person and when I believe expressing my view is justified, I will do so. That being said, we all heard Heather tell the mechanical bull operator to turn up the speed when Tamra hopped on the bull. Terry then asked Heather if she had it turned up and she confirmed it. Why was Heather bewildered when Tamra injured her arm? She said to “fire” the operator for increasing the speed. Fire him for doing what she told him to do? Here we go again…
Then on Heather’s blog, she tries to play the drunk card and the I was just joking card in the same hand. I’m not sure that is legal. Anyway, here is her version of events.
By the way, WHAT is up with the obscenities that David Beador is yelling at me???! I didn’t hear it at the time and it’s pretty offensive. Who shouts out “Spread your legs” to another man’s wife? In any context?
Tamra’s epic fall: I got the SAFEST mechanical bull imaginable. Bouncy house material all around it, I am safety girl. Let’s be clear on something: I WAS JOKING when I told the guy to turn it up, he didn’t even speak English and it was before she got on the bull. If I had actually turned it up and she got hurt, I would have been apologizing profusely. It all seems much faster when you watch it. I am very sincere when I’m asking if someone told the operator to turn it up, because I thought it had happened to me as well. I didn’t even remember making the joke when all of this happened!!! I know it looks funky to hear me say “Who could have done that?” when it looked like it was me. All I can say is after drinking champagne ALL day, I just didn’t remember making the joke!!! Obviously, I must have had a bad case of CHAMPSNESIA!!! Thank god Tamra’s arm is not broken! I did call her several times, but her phone died and she didn’t get my messages until later.
Is it me or is that a pretty lame excuse from Heather? I really need Heather to shape up this season, other than Lizzie there is really no other redeeming cast mate at the moment. I am still holding out hope for Shannon, but… seriously, this show needs a Vanderpump, or even a Cynthia Bailey who is mostly sane and right now, it’s not looking promising.
So what do you think of Heather’s excuses?
