    IT's probably caused more by the mounds and mounds of makeup they pile on.

    I agree BUT....Vicky isn't single. She is still legally married to Donn & has said she does not intend os divorcing him anytime soon. BTW just who are Vicky & Tamra to give marriage/relationship to anyone. Tamara is on husband #3, Vicky admitted to have cheated on Donn several times and has been on & off with Brooks more times than I can count.
    I don't codone Slade's remarks about looks, I admit he is a jerk. As much as Vicky claims to be a strong confident woman why did she allow herself to be sucked into Slade's negativity & have plastic surgery???

    It makes sense to suggest that it's none of each woman's business what the other one are doing. But if they didn't, wouldn't the show be quite boring. There have been a few women cast who have kept their noses out of other people's business and just lived their lives. Lynn was that way. So was the woman who was single and considered herself a cougar, and the woman who tried to take on Alexis and had dated Jim before he met Alexis. Most of the audience complained about how painfully boring they were to watch, which is why they weren't invited back on the show. If they all respected each other's privacy, there'd be nothing to watch.

    Heather was a good addition. It had been painful to watch Tamara being catty (throwing a drink in whatser face's face) and bringing up all kind of nonsense. But I like to see that she can be kind and respectful.

    It is good that her relationship with Eddie appears to working out. I was embarrassed to watch the bathtub scenes when Eddie first came on the picture. I did not really think that was going to last too long (too pornish). But I guess they must have something in common.

    I liked the show better with a kinder and gentler Tamra. Although, I agree with a poster above who said she has a knack for deflection!

    Heather was a great addition. The show needed to be elevated several notches and Heather did this. She's not always as right as she thinks she is but she's darn close.

    Ryan has issues. I wonder if it is PTSD to get so upset or the anger he has that he has a newborn and has to deploy. Maybe it is just living with a mom-in-law.

    Between the convo between Heather and Gretchen - am I crazy to think that Gretchen was in the right.

    Sorry that Jim had to cry in his 1k scarf. Always a class act.

He'll flip that around onto her, eventually, if he hasn't already.

    And I'm pretty sure that Judy had taken off her shows before she put her feet up on the couch, and she pointed that out to him.

    And a child would rather be FROM a broken family than live in one. It's not worth seeing your child turned into a nervous basketcase just to maintain a home with an abuser....and what Ryan did was ABUSE.
    I totally agree with you here and in other posts where you addressed Ryan's behavior. It brought back sad memories. My daughter wound up living IN the broken family and WITH the abuser due to corruption in the courts. From the time she was about 7, she's had to cope with an abuser and I can't tell you how it breaks my heart to see the nervous behaviors that emerged in her. Ryan's behavior set off my anxiety for a moment. Brianna has no idea yet, probably. I wonder, though. When you're mature enough to see what the truth is, you should of course see it right away, first incident no second chances. I saw it right away, but did not choose to leave at that time. I guess that was where I lacked maturity, in my choices. But I knew a red flag when I saw it. I knew it was abuse but I refused to believe it at that time. I did leave later, before (I assumed) he could have any affect on our daughter. It just didn't work out the way it should have. I hope Brianna sees, and does what's right for their boy.

    As far as Brianna not having to worry about custody, I hate to say that is not true. It could well be that in her case the fact that they are known and some of the issues have been recorded, as it were, may help. But I know I will never have that much confidence in our legal system where custody is concerned again. Never. I did have it, long ago. My having that confidence allowed some of the corruption to take place; I simply didn't believe a judge would take my child from me, and walked into many traps. Nothing about our situation would have led anybody else to believe otherwise. This all served to make the results more tragic and shocking. I hope that child is never victimized by his father, but after I saw Ryan being abusive at Vicky's party, I don't quite believe things will go down that well. Horrible. I'm sad for Brianna. She has no clue. She got irritated when Vicky mentioned Ryan was a "loose cannon". And most notably, she defended him. I do wonder if it's the first time she's seen anything like this from him, but I guess we can't know.

    I've had my own doubts about Ryan since he insisted that Brooks be banned from his mother-in-law's house! And if you remember, he was really almost obsessive in his negative comments about Brooks at that party. He always has been sort of obsessed by "telling the truth" about Brooks. I don't think Brooks is the greatest guy on earth either, but honestly he doesn't seem so bad to me that anybody would feel the need to absolutely ban him from another person's home! Brianna was wrong to do that, and it's very controlling behavior.

    I am a huge Briana fan and was sad to see her husband act the way he did. I never felt they were a match for the long haul to begin with and this might have been the first step toward their demise.

    Ganging up on Gretchen the way they did last night was not fun. I really wish these shows would stop all the yelling at the reunions.

    I would have felt a bit more sympathy if, when she was dabbing away tears, there had actually been something to wipe away. Gretchen's "crying" actually played kind of hollow, to me. YMMV.

    We always called that a "dry cry".
