RECAP: Tamra’s son, Ryan, could literally have a heart attack at any minute. After she took him to see the doctor, they were informed that he’s so unhealthy that his heart palpitations weren’t normal. Now the doctor doesn’t believe the growth hormones that he’s been using has altered his health, but it probably would be best if he gets off of them right away.
Still, his health means so much. To both him and his mother. She doesn’t want to worry about her son dying before her. He’s 28 and she wants him to live for a very long time. And as for her son, his dreams end up getting crushed today. He wanted to be a body builder and that’s no longer possible with his health the way it is.
Shannon’s big Christmas party is coming up and all of her friends are invited. In theory, everyone should be able to enjoy it, but the slight fight the hostess had with Heather isn’t as settled as much as they were hoping it was. Heather believes their argument to be dead. And she had every reason to think that.
When Shannon and Heather met for lunch they both decided to just settle whatever issue is on their mind right then and there. Yet Shannon doesn’t trust Heather to be as easy about their agreement as she is. Like she said, Heather is an actress and you can never tell if she’s merely acting like everything’s fine instead of it actually being fine.
The party gets underway and everyone is enjoying the décor and the food when Tamra and Heather along with their husbands sit down to talk. Heather wanted to share her happy news and so she told her friends about being invited back on the morning show “Good Day LA” to guest co-host. This was a great opportunity for her and she wondered why Tamra had this funny look on her face when she heard the news.
Tamra admitted that hearing all of that brought back old memories from six months ago when on a different occasion Heather co-hosted. On that segment, Heather was doing a fitness special and Tamra was hurt that her gym was invited to do it.
And that opened up a can of worms for them. Because Tamra heard from other people that Heather did have a say to inviting a gym and still chose to go with a different gym. So Tamra wanted to hear Heather acknowledge her feelings on the matter and Heather wanted to drop the subject all together. She already told Tamra that she had no say and she expects her friend to automatically believe her. Something she was having a problem doing. Thankfully, the guys stepped in at this point and hastily brokered a peace.
Although Tamra wasn’t done with the subject. She went on with the party till she found Shannon and the other girls where she then vented. Heather was busy cheering up Vicki after her daughter moved to Oklahoma and so she didn’t know what Tamra was saying to their friends. Tamra was telling them about the gym scenario and after Shannon was the only one of them to get it – she also told them about what happened after the hoedown. Allegedly, Heather called her and demanded she pick a side between her and Shannon.
Heather and Vicki returned to the rest of the group and there was this awkward silence between all of them when they were reunited. Lizzie, taking it upon herself, decided to break the silence and in her words clear the air. She told Heather what they were discussing while also dropping the tidbit that she had defended Heather. As if she needed defending.
Heather then asked Tamra what the problem was. She thought they settled this and she wanted to know why it’s being brought back up and when she wasn’t getting anywhere with Tamra again – Shannon put her own two sense in. Shannon was angry about what she just heard and when she began to speak it suddenly felt like an ambush to Heather.
All of their arguing got nowhere and was honestly pointless. Even Vicki stayed out of it. She felt that Tamra was in the wrong and the fighting finally stopped when Tamra got up to walk away.
Heather didn’t like any of this and frankly she was tired of feeling like she had to defend herself so randomly out of nowhere she got a phone call from one of her kids saying they weren’t feeling well. She and Terry conveniently left the party before anyone could say something that couldn’t be taken back.
