OC Bravo Blogs Part Two by BB
TOPIC 3: ALEXIS AND THE OTHERS
Alexis says: “Lydia saying to Gretchen that I missed her needs clarification. I am not “missing” Gretchen because the current Gretchen is not the same person I was friends with three years ago. I do miss the old Gretchen, but not the person that I know and see now. What I had mentioned to Lydia is that Gretchen’s behavior towards me hurt the most, because at one point we really were friends. I’ve never had a close connection to Tamra or Heather.”
Gretchen says: “When Lydia brought up Alexis at the table and said she missed me the most, there was a part of me that wanted to believe that was true. But her actions towards me have shown none of that.” Then Gretchen has the AUDACITY to point out that Alexis reached out the Peggy when her daughter broke her arm even though they had a strained relationship at the time, but Alexis never reached out to Slade and her when Grayson was going through his medical crisis (well, she mentioned it on twitter which was even worse in Gretchen’s eyes). First, I would like to point out that Grayson is NOT Gretchen’s son or even her stepson. Second, I think the friendship breakup with Peggy was different from the friendship breakup with Gretchen. Gretchen then talks about how Alexis would say she was a Christian but would not act like one and she didn’t know who the “real” Alexis was so she had to walk away. I wish Gretchen could just be honest and admit that, in order to be part of what she mistakenly thinks is the “cool girls club,” she was going to have to kiss Tamra’s azz and stab her good friend Alexis in the back. And lastly: “People ask why I was willing to forgive Tamra and not Alexis. First and foremost, I have forgiven Alexis because I had to in order to move on. However, the main difference between Tamra and Alexis is that Tamra apologized for the things that were said and the hurt that was caused, which is something that has never happened from Alexis. Tamra and I both said we were sorry for what went down between us and that we really wanted to move forward — and we did just that.” I would like to ask Gretchen exactly what Alexis has done to her that needs an apology. Tamra treated Gretchen horribly. What did Alexis do that came even close in comparison?
Tamra says: “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 [an] 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.” Tamra is such an effing liar and would like for us to believe if Alexis had she said she wanted to move forward, everything would have been hunky dory. That is such a crock. Tamra continues: “When the whole group is upset with you, its [it’s] time to think about what you’re [you] are doing and fix it or stay away.” I have to ask why Tamra feels the need to even mention Alexis in this week’s blog. Oh, that’s right. Tamra hasn’t bothered to post a blog since April 15th! That, and Tamra feels the need to slam Alexis at every opportunity she gets. I still can’t figure out where all the hatred towards Alexis is coming from. Jealousy, maybe?
Lydia says: “When the conversation at dinner that night started to revolve around Alexis again, I felt uncomfortable. I wanted to let Gretchen know that from my past conversations with Alexis, she seemed to be really hurt by Gretchen. Alexis never spoke ill of her, but there seems to be a real feeling of sadness — like she had lost a true friend. When Gretchen said she found that hard to believe, I just wanted to drop the conversation. I don’t know the ins and outs of their relationship and I didn’t want to speak on Alexis’ behalf in front of the whole table.” In other words, Lydia sensed it would not bode well for her if she dared go against this pit of vipers.
Vicki and Heather were a little too much into themselves to comment on Alexis this week.
TOPIC 4: Miscellaneous Tidbits
From Gretchen’s Blog: “She (her mom) has taught me so many important lessons about life and how to deal with it. In regards to this show, she always reminds me that all I can do is be true to myself, because what really matters are the people that know my true heart, like my closest friends and family. I’m very blessed with some of the most amazing people in my life and some fabulous fans!” There we go with the “fans” terminology again. The sad thing about Gretchen is I think she really believes her own spin.
Tamra says: “As you can see Lydia is a great addition to our group. She is sweet and caring and has little issues with anyone. . .YET!” BB Translation: Tamra hasn’t had time to direct her hatefulness towards Lydia yet, but her turn will come eventually. Tamra talks about how great Eddie is and how she would never tell him to slow down on his long bike treks. Little does she realize it’s the most enjoyable part of Eddie’s day; to ride away from the bitchfest known as Tamra. Poor Eddie. He’s not a bad looking dude and he doesn’t come across as stupid. Is Tamra the best he can do? I don’t get it.
Lydia wants us to know that she and Doug had never left the kids overnight before the Malibu trip and how anxious she was. She wants us to know what a “hands on” mom she is. I didn’t really need to know that but until Lydia gets a more interesting storyline going, she has to talk about something I guess.
Vicki wants us to know that she hates being a single amongst couples. She needs to either tell her friends and family she’s with Brooks and they are just going to have to deal with it or find herself another man. She also wants to thank everyone for their prayers while Ryan is in Afghanistan and how Brianna is doing a great job handling the difficulties of being a single parent while he’s away.
Alexis wants us to know how fun it was seeing the kids and adults alike enjoying themselves at the opening of their new trampoline business and how she will support Jim in his quest for solutions to his thinning hair problem. That’s information I didn’t need to know.
That’s it for the OC blogs this week.
