So far this week, the only OC housewives to put up a blog are Shannon and Lizzie. Shannon seems like she really enjoyed her time with Vicki on the trip. I’m glad so far she is enjoying the trip and staying out of most of the conflicts. Lizzie on the other hand is absolutely furious with Tamra, both in real time and on the episode. Her blog was super long and sort of repetitive. But if you make it all the way to the end, there is a game for us to play!
I never thought I would ever travel 25 hours to get to any destination! Life is full of surprises — welcome to Bali!
I always have a great time with Vicki, and the time flew by with my travel partner! When she and I saw the kayak on our first day at the beach, there was no question that we would take it out. We came across a small, unoccupied boat and I dared Vicki to climb onboard. Of course, she took the dare! As she was stepping into the boat, she lost her balance and we tipped over. My hat was drenched, the cocktails were spilled, and we couldn’t seem to climb back into the kayak. What you didn’t see was a local man swam up and helped us after 20 minutes of struggling! What a crazy fun morning!
That night, dinner was a little boring. I was actually considering trying to push Vicki in the water to spice things up! I excused myself to use the restroom and scout out the water and when I returned, there was a lot of yelling going on between Lizzie and Tamra. For once, it was not something about me!
I told Vicki and Tamra that I would go up to their room and meet them when they left. As I was getting ready to go, Lizzie and Danielle apologized to me. I was a bit taken aback, but they said that they had misjudged me largely based on statements made by Tamra. I was floored when Lizzie told me Tamra had told everyone on the trip about the “confidential” email. After her apology, the last thing I thought she would do was betray me with others. I don’t understand why Tamra is saying such damaging and false statements about my character, and I want to get down to the bottom of it.
What I got upset about was that when I confronted her about my birthday she quickly got so defensive and turned it on me. Huh? I DID text her the night of my birthday and Vicki and I sent her a picture of us in the limo. She did say, “Where are your pants?” We were playing around. I was NEVER mad at her. My feelings were hurt, yes, but I wasn’t going to let it ruin my night.
Just a side note here, when you sit in a limo bus for two hours waiting for your friends to arrive, dresses have a way of riding up. My dress was not very short, it was a tasteful length. In this particular conversation, I was referring to the last text I got from her saying that she felt left out. After that I had not responded and she did not contact me the next day. However she texted Danielle, told her how sorry she felt for me and also made fun of my dress. And after tonight’s episode, I now know she was making fun of my dress to Heather, too. Sweet!
I don’t study text messages so I can figure out loopholes to screw people over. Who remembers texts word-for-word? She was clearly looking for a fight.
There were many disappointments that night that no one ever saw. I got in a big fight with Christian and my birthday night ended in tears. I am not proud of how I acted at the end of the night on my birthday. I acted as awful and as ugly as I felt inside. I totally admit it. I was just so hurt and embarrassed and everyone kept reminding me that Tamra could have been there, but she just didn’t want to go. You didn’t get to see the majority of the party but it was a BIG disappointment. My husband really let me down on my birthday too. There is no excuse for how I acted, but hey it was a long night, there was drinking involved, and I was so, so hurt and humiliated. Do you get a pass on your birthday? I hope so. . .It’s my party and I will cry if I want to.
Okay, I am officially disappointed in Lizzie. I thoroughly expected her to feel terribly embarrassed for what she said to Christian. I expected way more than just “I’m not proud of myself.” I’ve said many a horrific thing to a man in a heated moment involving alcohol, but it takes a lot of serious apologizing to get past something like that. I suppose she probably did that privately with Christian but since the blow was dealt in public, the apology should be equally as public, in my opinion.
You all should know something about me. I don’t get mad easily. It takes a lot to get me really upset and somehow this Tamra person has done it! I am not proud of opening up to Shannon about all the things Tamra had told me about her, but I SNAPPED! A lightbulb totally went off in my head and it all started to make sense. She acted like Shannon’s best friend, so concerned and sweet. She let her confide in her and then bashed her behind her back. And lo and behold, the bitch just did the SAME thing to me! Are you kidding me?
I do try my best to stay out of drama, I do. However, I will stand up for what’s right. It wasn’t right what she did to Shannon, and it’s not right what she is doing to me. I feel very bad that I never really gave Shannon a chance. I didn’t invest in a relationship with her. To be quite honest, I thought she was crazy with all her outbursts. I am totally starting to get it now — because I’m starting to have the outbursts too! It’s infuriating to get a story twisted on you and to have words put into your mouth.
Shag, Marry, Kill. It’s interesting to hear Tamra tell her re enactment of the game. First off, what a silly game to host at your party.
And let me add, Tamra was almost jumping out of her chair wanting to play the game. It wasn’t my idea to play the stupid game and I was being a good sport playing along.
After the game I said to Tamra, “Wwhy didn’t you just tell me earlier you weren’t going to be at my birthday? I was so embarrassed that night. It would have saved me so much humiliation.” She quickly became mad, defensive, and extremely rude. Her reply, in so many words, was that didn’t call me on my birthday on purpose, to cause drama. Then I said, “Well, maybe I don’t know about that, but I do know you just got mad because your husband said he wanted to marry me.”
Tamra, got up threw her jacket on went to the door and repeated (yes repeated the words) “Marry you?!” and called me a psycho while storming off. Eddie calmly said goodbye to everyone, including Christian and myself, and left.
Did I call her out? Yes, 100 percent. And I gotta be honest, I was proud of myself. She was being very rude to me and I called her out. I almost couldn’t believe it myself.
Do you want to know what I think? I think Tamra was so caught off-guard that I called her out that she had no option other than turning the situation around on me. I’m seeing a pattern here, aren’t you? Tamra got bent out of shape over the game, then she got really rude, and so I called her on it. And honest to God, I said the word “marry.” I said it on purpose.
Just an opinion here, but if you are going to play Shag, Marry, Kill with your friends you only have one of three options. If any of those options upset you, why play? At this point, I’m just annoyed that we can’t get my insult right. I wasn’t particularly being nice and I did reach out the next day and acknowledge the situation and try to be the bigger person. I am sweet, but I can also be quite ballsy. I guess you could say I was starting to see the light.
Stay tuned. . .it’s about to get crazy.
Heather, Tamra, Pam and Lizzie were the four women at the Valentine’s Day party. If you were Eddie, you would clearly marry Lizzie, right? Let’s play the game. Who would you choose if you were Eddie? Terry? Christian? Does Pam even have a spouse? I know absolutely nothing about her.
