Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney has yet to blog about the past episodes of the hit show..until now! Tamra is opening up on why she kicked out Alexis Bellino of her dinner party and talks business differences with Vicki. See what Tamra has to say below!
“As you can see Lydia is a great addition to our group. She is sweet and caring and has little issues with anyone. . .YET!
Alexis and I are polar opposites and we find it hard to find common ground. I know kicking her out of my party was not nice. But after all it was MY party and I honestly had a hard time with her being there in the first place. So I asked a honest question: “Why do you want to be here?” I felt it was her opportunity to tell everyone that she wanted to move forward and everyone would have agreed with her. When the whole group is upset with you, its time to think about what you’re are doing and fix it or stay away.
My friendship with Vicki has been strained for the past year. I love her like a sister and things do get better. Our fight last year has really taken a toll on both of us, and it became very hard to work with each other. Vicki is a hard worker and I could not understand why she wasn’t taking a interest in WBW? As the season goes on you will see why.
Heather and Terry are very brave to show the world that marriage is not always perfect. They love each other so much and it makes me sad to see them fight. Terry is quite the jokester, and I’m sure it gets annoying at times. I know first hand that “the d word” is never a good thing to throw around. I saw the pain in Heather’s eyes when Terry brought it up at the table and you could tell that Terry felt horrible.
I feel horrible for Gretchen and Slade. I can’t imagine what they are going through with Grayson. A sick child has to the worst thing any parent could live with, I would not be able to leave my child side. My heart breaks for Grayson and his family .
Eddie is so amazing. He listens to what I have to say and accepts me for who I am. He helps me when I stumble and guides me to make the right decision, without telling me how to do it. He is everything I could ever want in a partner. I love him so much and thank God that I have him in my life. My family adores him and he calls my kids his own when speaking of them. It makes my heart melt every time.
Eddie was a competitive cyclist for years and usually cycles about four days a week. He loves cycling and I knew that when I met him. Does it get annoying at times. . .Yes! But even though I get annoyed I would never ask him to slow down.
The trip to Malibu was an exciting one and we definitely got to taste some new wines and experience some interesting pairings. I’ts great learning about wines and I am actually getting better by “drinking on the job.” As you all know being healthy and focused on fitness allows me to enjoy the best of both worlds. I am excited to launch of our new Wines by Wives Flagship brand with a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Chardonnay.
You may of seen some drama between Vicki and I tonight, but partners disagree at times and its the ones that have the ability to work on it that build successful companies.”
Tamra is right when she says all partners disagree but it seems like the both of them could have handled the situation better. Thoughts on Tamra’s excuse on kicking out Alexis? Do you think Vicki and Tamra are good partners?
