The ladies of Orange County share their final thoughts on each other in their last blogs of the season.
Let’s put it this way, although I don’t agree with everything Tamra does, I want the best for her and don’t want us to be fighting. But the truth of the matter is I don’t agree with what she has done. I personally think Tamra steps way too much into people’s business and I’m hopeful that she has learned a lesson. You can’t go around talking crap on people and expect them not to compare notes. As I said — I don’t really care if Tamra likes Brooks or supports our relationship — but I do ask that she keep the bad mouthing to herself.
It was really great getting to know Shannon this year and despite all the drama in her life, it was good to spend time with her one-on-one in Bali. Despite all the issues with her, Tamra, and Heather, I am hopeful that we all can remain friends and “move on” as they say. I think Shannon is a great person, she knows how to have fun, makes her family her top priority, and does whatever she can to make the necessary changes to keep her marriage intact. I’m proud of her.
Looking back this season, I felt bad about how I treated Heather at times. I am proud to call her my friend, and hate that I was part of any of her hurt. Heather definitely seems to manage her career and her four kids without looking too stressed out, which I really admire. She definitely seems to “have it all.”
Lastly Lizzie — although we started of on a rough note I really have come to like her a lot. She has a spitfire personality and I love a woman to can stand up to Tamra. (Or for that matter even me!)
After the final dinner I reached out to Tamra regarding her custody battle. As a mother I felt the need to support her. We are all in this life together. We made a bit of amends and both shared what we were hurt over in Bali. We even talked about getting together with our hubbies. But that didn’t last for long, as you’ll see at the Reunion.
I am sorry for what Tamra is going through in her life; I just don’t think it’s a good excuse to hurt other people. We all go through hard times. I am a very forgiving person. I forgive two or three or more times than necessary. However there comes a time when you damage a relationship beyond repair and the things that have happened in the past few weeks are reprehensible. Will I forgive Tamra? Yes and I have. However, I don’t foresee a friendship with her.
I have developed what I know will be a lifelong friendship with Vicki. Since Bali, I have become quite close to Lizzie. Today, my family and my marriage are the most important things to me. The pot stirring and arguing that some of these women are doing is ridiculous. I have no time or need for it. I can forgive, but I will never forget. With time, you never know what will happen, but for now my husband and I are keeping our distance from Tamra and Dubrows.
Heather’s Blog was all about Heather the only other housewife she mention was Shannon. She blames editing. She says she and Terry apologized to Shannon and David at the reunion. She also hints she will not be back.
I don’t know what my future is with Housewives show but I am very grateful for all of the opportunities it’s presented to me and my family. I hope you have enjoyed getting to know us over the past three years and realize we are not defined by moment or a season, but by how we live our day-to-day lives, how we love our family, and how we cherish our friends.
Tamra did not blog.
