Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: Tamra The Backstabber [Episode 10]

The Real Housewives of Orange County Photos - Recap- Shannon Solves the Case of the Email.clipular (1)
This week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County,” starts off with Shannon, who appears to be in pretty rough shape, is at Tamra’s confiding more details of her (then) failing marriage.  It’s strange to see these two talking about this when Tamra had already talked about Shannon’s marriage in a prior episode with Heather.  We now learn that Shannon has even shared David’s email with Tamra. The look on Tamra’s face doesn’t scream “empathy,” to me. It looks like the face of someone who is 1- feeling vindicated in comparing her failed marriage to Simon with Shannon and David’s marriage and is 2 – feeling smug about not being the only one whose marriage fell apart. Shannon’s story is so much worse than the moments shared onscreen, so far. She states that David’s eyes light up when he looks at the kids and go black when he looks at her – all since the children were born. She says that he lived in the guest room while she dealt with allergy issues which led her to cough uncontrollably. They haven’t lived in the same bedroom in nearly 7 years, not even after moving to the new house – the house in which they currently live.

Shannon feels stupid and that she should know better because she’s a smart person. Tamra puts on her ragged armchair marriage counselor’s cap and tells Shannon she doesn’t sound stupid, but sounds as if she is making excuses for someone she loves. Shannon is the only person I would believe if she said she didn’t watch the show before joining.Why? She’s taking marriage advice from Tamra. Just then a text from David comes in. He is upset learning that Heather was at a restaurant with a table of friends discussing David’s email to Shannon. I’ve always viewed Heather as a cruel pretentious ass with money – which has been mistaken for class. This pretty much solidifies my opinion of her. Tamra swears she never said a word to Heather about an impending divorce. Shannon believes her, sorta.

Vicki is opening mail and unpacking a box which includes some sort of an award (for outstanding achievement in some unnamed category) which surprises Vicki  since it just showed up in the mail <insert your own skeptical comment, here>. She goes on about how hard she works – in case you weren’t convinced the other 9 million times she said it before. She talks to people all day. When she comes home she doesn’t want to talk to anyone, she says, but knows she has to talk to those she loves – so she calls Brooks. They both work so hard that sometimes they can only talk on the phone. Brooks works?????  Vicki is mixing and drinking a protein drink in a way that is the best “Just say no” ad I’ve ever seen. The couple is planning to go to Puerto Vallarta to get away from the Coto gossip machine. She wants Shannon and David to meet Brooks and get to know him.

Shannon and the girls are cooking. David comes home early to apologize to Shannon. She says in a TH that she is 100% committed to making her marriage work that this is a wake-up call. Moments later she’s talking to the girls about how their daddy is a creature of habit eating the same thing at the same time, every day. David looks uncomfortable and snarks that if dinner was ready when he got home he wouldn’t need to eat chips and salsa – walking away. He takes my hope that they would work things out with him when he goes. I don’t think Shannon can help herself. Snarking at him seems to be ingrained into her character after all this time. Maybe she was trying to be playful, I can’t tell, but given how often he’s been criticized, even in front of their daughters, it just wasn’t a good moment.

Later Shannon is worried about the rumor circulated around Newport Beach about her husband leaving her and she wants to protect her children from false rumors. She talks about her own parents’ divorce and how she doesn’t want her children hurt like that. While the girls are playing “skunk in a barnyard”, Shannon let’s David know she’s going to run an errand. 

Heather and Terry are discussing the need for a bigger bed to occasionally let the children in to snuggle and watch movies. Ugh, a discussion about the lunch date with Tamra and making up. Tams and Eddie are now going to take them to dinner. Terry is glad since that’s the Tamra they know and love. Heather starts by saying, “the point is that you have to be my friend…” when there’s a knock at the door. It’s Shannon… OH MY WORD!  I’m a daytime soap fan, so I was just waiting for a dramatic music cue to pick up along with “blue steel” stares. Instead, Terry is gracious and makes Shannon a drink. Shannon tells what she has heard about the email and wants to know how the information got out. Shannon has stones, and I love that about her.  She has probably wasted her time on Heather – who is never wrong in her own book, it seems.  It’s clear, as is openly said, that Shannon knows Heather learned about the email from Tamra.

Heather tells Shannon that she was hoping Shannon popped by to apologize to her about “yelling” at her at the party. She’s deflecting and bringing up an old conversation rather than dealing with the email. Shannon needlessly apologizes. Somehow Heather makes the conversation about her, something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Shannon – who redirects the conversation.  Heather tells Shannon what Tamra said about Shannon being in a bad place as she was four years ago and drinking too much. Heather feels she doesn’t owe Shannon anything they’re not even in a good place. Shannon tries to leave. She again tries to appeal to Heather as a mother. Heather responds that apparently Shannon views her as a mother who lies.  As the women continue talking, Terry, who excused himself earlier to get ready for a surprise party the couple is supposed to attend, is in the background listening on. Heather is rude, dismissive, and she has now made Vicki Gunvalson look like Miss Manners. Heather throws Shannon out and warbles on and on about being yelled at in her own home.

On the way home, David’s voice softens over the phone as Shannon tells him what happened.  He wants to know if she’s ok to drive.  He’s so sorry for what she’s just gone through. Again, I have hope for them.

Vicki, Brooks, the beach, done.  I can’t speak on anything to do with them, they make my skin crawl.

Eddie and Tamra’s “baby” arrives.  It’s similar to the baby RHOA’s Kenya received. I’m surprised the same woman wasn’t flown out to instruct them on caring for the doll. Tamra makes sure it’s anatomically correct and takes a picture of him to send to Vicki. As with Kenya, there will be a report to show how well the baby was cared for and who gave the most care based on contact recorded from the I.D. bracelets the Judges wear. Just then, baby “Astro” (who Tamra notes looks remarkably like Vicki’s grandson Troy) begins crying. Eddie, not Tamra, is able to get him to stop crying. Even funnier since she bragged about her skills raising children.

Shannon is meeting with her Essential Oils expert when Lizzie and Danielle show for the meeting. Lizzie doesn’t believe but is willing to respectfully listen. Discussing illnesses in her family, including her own, Lizzie tries the oil that is supposed to create happiness. Shannon tells the women that Heather apparently thinks she’s depressed recounting their meeting. Lizzie sides with Heather, and assumes Heather did what she had to do. Shannon also brings up the comments about her drinking. Danielle upsets Shannon by talking about how she can’t take even small amounts of alcohol to which Shannon tells Danielle that she’s a little judgmental and in a TH says that Danielle needs a little “Shut the Fuck up” oil.

The interstitial is about Lizzie discussing fertility issues, what are do’s and don’ts.  If I had two f—ks to give about Lizzie, I wouldn’t give even one of them. Bored, don’t care.

rhoc-910-11

We are now at dinner, instead of lunch, with Tamra and Shannon. Lizzie is having dinner with the Dubrows at the same time it seems. Poor Shannon is hopeful that Tams will take the high road and admit she’s shared the news with Heather.  Just as I started thinking to myself it’s REALLY clear that Shannon has never watched this show, I’m stunned. Tamra admits that she DID tell Heather about the email… so now it seems that Shannon was right.  Heather knew and gossiped to others. Tamra poses it as something she did to get Heather to back off of ShannonHeather admits to Lizzie that she did tell others, who then told other individuals. Some of the women she told weren’t even her close friends! Lizzie makes excuses for Heather’s behavior. Heather claims that the house is not very big, she could hear two of her children moving around (you know, counting footsteps and all that) and since things were getting heated, she threw Shannon out… I call bullshit, shut the hell up, and have some shut-the-fuck-up oil. Shannon has a hook up and can get you some.

Heather, on full display, compares her “ruined” Christmas Eve to her spreading painful information about Shannon’s family. Yup, that makes sense. We end with a heartbroken Shannon not knowing how she can ever trust Tamra again. Psssst…don’t.  We learn that Tamra lies, as she did to Shannon about what Heather knew. We learn that Heather doesn’t own her shit, as she could have by simply telling Shannon what SHE SAID, and to people with whom she isn’t particularly close. Lizzie is someone whose judgment I wouldn’t trust if she was the only other living soul and we had to help each other survive.  Terry should really think about his practice if he’s going to be on air co-signing all of his wife’s bullshit behavior.

For me, Heather has entered Gretchen Rossi territory. She is so unlikable that her return next season could only ruin the show, for me at least.  Good bye, Heather Rossi.  I also want to remind you, dear readesr, that when Tamra gossiped about Heather at Shannon’s (the Christmas Eve Party Heather whines about) things turned into a melee because Lizzie decided they needed to get everything out then and there. When Shannon tries to do the same, minus the crowd, angry voices, and taking sides, she’s wrong? Lizzie R?  You can go too. Pack your photo shoots, swimsuits I’ll never buy, as well as your sucking up and get out!

About the Author

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well.

    How heartless Heather, the way you treated Shannon, Hopefully one day you will get your Karma spoon fed to you, Ms,Think your better than everyone. Heather very disgusting to treat anyone like you did to Shannon, Disgusting!!!

  • Chloe

    Great recap and on point! Heather, shame on you! Your gossipy condescending mouth is catching up to you. Grow up and keep your mouth shut. You are horrible this season. Maybe your snooty like attitude needs to be dropped from the show. Shannon needs to handle her marriage without all these so called friends.

  • nan/4

    I do agree that Heather’s behavior was appalling. I used to be a fan, but her stock has gone way down in my book. But I will say this. I’m getting tired of women exposing their “secrets” on national television, and then being outraged when people talk about them. She knows what she signed up for…..I mean, come on. Heather was cold and unfeeling and a huge disappointment to me, but I wonder how David Beador found out that Heather had been discussing an email that he had sent to his wife over lunch with her friends? That seems pretty far-fetched to me, and the fact that there just-so-happened to be cameras perched in the Dubrow’s living room at the very time that Shannon decided to confront Heather…..This stuff is set up and scripted and getting more and more stupid with each passing episode. Seriously, if Tamra wants to have a baby, then I’m the Queen of England. The only thing that she wants is a storyline. “Reality” TV has become nothing more than over-the-top soap operas. JMO. 😮

    I hope you all have a vey nice day. 🙂

    • Chloe

      I think you make strong points about it being scripted or influenced.

  • SAMRA1116

    Heather and Tamra are both alike, don’t talk about me, but I’m telling your business to anyone I feed like talking to. I’m going to deflect everything u say or feel. SMH
    Great recap as usual

    • Chloe

      I’m so impressed by Shannon’s ability to maintain her composure through all that. I would have flipped the damn script on Heather…if she thinks Shannon is scary angry, she’d probably have to be sedated after a confrontation with my ass. Heather is overly dramatic (come on girl, I know its rough out there getting gigs but we’re not on Days of Our Lives) and untruthful. What’s worse about Heather is that she acts very prim, proper and educated but it’s a facade, an extensive vocabulary doesn’t translate to being moral and just. If anyone knows how to act out “high school”, it’s her. Annoying that someone can have access to all the luxuries and comforts of life and can’t have some sense of compassion or true gratitude for what’s been given to her.

      • SAMRA1116

        You said a mouth full— let me just say from my experience with most not all wealthy people. They really have little or no respect for others, their emotions, their need and compassion ONLY comes out in public, when they are being honored for giving donations. It’s appalling to act like an asshole, because you have more mooney than others. To much is given much is expected. Heather/Shannon live in the same neighborhood, so they around equally wealthy. Snobby is Heather’s first name. Did u see the wrinkles on Tamara’s neck—awful and her face is too frozen n dead. Heather looks like bewitch. LOL

        • Chloe

          I agree. Heather was almost enjoying that Shannon marriage is in need of SOS but how easily Ms Perfect forgot her husband used the D word last season. Shannon is a person who has a lot money like Heather but is so Real I love Real Heather is what she called Sweet Alexis last season Pretentious ;( maybe it time heather to lye down yourself cause if everybody saying it guess it must be true !!!!’

          • SAMRA1116

            Yes that last sentence fits herself now, she’s so phony n perfect.
            But we know that Heather doesn’t think she wrong. Shannon was out of line. Oh I remember Terry telling everyone at the table, that he mentioned the D word (divorce) poor Terry, I like him, poor man just want to be happy.

  • nan/4

    OT, sort of….I think that the new show “Botched” with Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif begins tonight. I’m going to be watching. It looks good to me! Anyone else interested or is it just me?

    Thanks! Take care. 🙂

    • SAMRA1116

      Hey Nan —what channel and channel
      Love those shows

      • nan/4

        Hi Samra! I hope that you’ve been well. I’m in Las Vegas and it goes on “E” Network at 9:00pm here. The previews looked juicy!!!! lol 😉

        • SAMRA1116

          Thank you—I’m going to try and catch it.
          I’m doing well —thank you ((()))

          • Birdie11

            Yes…do that! We need a few of us to rant with!!

          • SAMRA1116

            I’I I be here to rant. LOL

    • Birdie11

      Hey Nan! I’m gna try it…interesting that seemingly humble Terry seems to like the camera as much as his mirror obsessed wife…hmmmmm.

      • nan/4

        Yes, it seems to run in the family, my sweet Birdie! I wonder how Dr. Nassif can implant duck lips into Taylor’s face and then again in to Courtney Stodden, but is now “fixing” botched surgeries???? Doesn’t make much sense to me! :-/

        Take good care, Birdie! 😉

        • Birdie11

          You too…have a great day! See…that’s what I want to know…what surgery crazed floozies have they actually worked on? How morally conscious are they…I guess I should keep my expectations low!!

    • RonnieIsBack

      As long as Terry doesn’t act like the bitch that he is…I will check it out LOL.

  • italiano bambino

    I’m glad Shannon got to experience what’s tammy is all about. Heather got all the right to kick Shannon out is her house by all means.Vicky and crookslove getaway scene was as real as tamara tears.

    • Ahahahaha @ Vicky and crookslove getaway!!!!!!

  • RonnieIsBack

    Great recap North because I still refuse to watch the OC shit…good to know that Trampra is still a weasel and Heather DuBoring is just as nutz.

  • Birdie11

    OK…I call a big, fat FOUL on the Vicki and Brooks massage scene!! The rollover!!!! AAAAACCCKKK!! My eyes!! BLECHHH!!

    • Sara

      Hi Birdie. The massage scenes were repulsive and unnecessary. Did you notice the back of Vicki’s head/hair and Brooks flashed us.

      • Birdie11

        Hi Sara…OMG it was so GROSS!!!

        • Sara

          All I can say is EEK! Vicki looked very desperate as well. Taking her old man toy on vacation for sex. EEK!

          • Birdie11

            I think they LIKED rolling over for the camera…EWWW!!!

          • SAMRA1116

            Vicki did that old nasty buzzard, said I think they saw the pink.
            These people have no shame, I know she’s classless, but damn I keep my under wears ON. Crooksmark is just repulsive.

          • Birdie11

            What about him crowing about his arousal…OMG…it couldn’t have been grosser.

          • SAMRA1116

            Thank you for reminding me, he’s always repulsive to me.
            Hold my hand Vicki, Vicki deserve whatever Crooksmark does to her.

      • twifan2

        Well, there went my dinner. 🙁

  • Tamara started it all. If I tell a “friend” something, I don’t expect them to blab it to anyone else. Tamara is friends with whomever she is with at the moment. Heather is a stuck-up bitch! That scene where she dismissed Shannon and demanded she EXIT seemed like a scene out of one of her acting gigs. It was COLD!!!

    • Birdie11

      What about Terry lurking around in the background…that was weird…someone loves the camera!

      • Yes ma’am! Heather probably tutored him in her special torture chamber that he BETTER be the MOST supportive husband on camera or else!!!!!!!! It’s soooooo obvious he doesn’t agree with Heather’s behavior but is a puppet on a string!

        • Birdie11

          UGH…it was rude. He’s starting to act like a woman.

          • Yup….He looks like a complete programmed fool this season.

      • SAMRA1116

        I saw that and said, he likes to hear how his wife berates people. Ugh
        She’s berates Terry’s behind also. Heather is always on stage n looking for PERFECTION.

  • Sara

    Heather and Lizzie are idiots. I can’t believe heather decided to act like trash instead of apologize for talking about another women’s marriage. Lizzie is just boobs and nothing in the head.

    • Hey Sara! 🙂

      I use to like heather but not anymore. Its all about her her her. She doesn’t care about others or their feelings. My God Shannon asked her a simple question and Heather’s response was wheres my apology??? Heather exaggerates so much when it comes to Shannon. Heather is showing her true colors and its looking less like class and more like trash!

    • Norrth

      Even if the women Heather spoke with were close friends, rather than being people she says she doesn’t know well, they weren’t close with Shannon so what was Heather’s purpose in sharing that email with them? I think she fully intended for Shannon to be hurt. What an ugly thing to do.

    • Reality LuLu

      Lizzie reminds me of Alexis Bellino – big boobs & flighty.

      • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ✿♡❀♡❁

        & 3 sammiches short of a full picnic basket!

  • SAMRA1116

    What about Tamra and the fact baby. She is so phony, according to Simon she doesn’t bath and feed them, late for school and more. So how can she manage a baby bad her kids look older enough to me to take a bath own the own, I’m just saying but the rest is the real lazy ass trailer trash this itch is. Take care of the kids you have, no baby should want you or Eddie the freak for parents. What folks won’t do for a dollars. Um Tamra’s hand and neck is worst than a 70 yr old woman, that lived in the sun. Vickie is just one thing, a good business woman, other than that she’s crazy. Why oh why out of all the men, she picked up, clean him up, fixed his teeth for free, housed, provided a car to use and a credit card. Well liked my mother(rip) would say, sha you just cleaned that no good user, for someone else to enjoy. Sha in a few months, thing will change and he’s looking to upgrade. There’s a damn fool born everyday and you are one, I’ll be right here when he leaves your dumb behind. You don’t buy no man, helping is no thing, but paid in full is what you are going to get.

  • TartLemon

    Lonely place to be, but I’m on Heather’s side on this one. Not all the way enough to think her behavior wasn’t way over the top. Shannon needed to have that conversation with the source which was snaky TAMRAtrash. IMO, it was another excuse for Shannon to make herself the victim and not spend evening time with her husband.

    Every season, Vicki tries to rehabilitate her image. By the final episode, same old barf worthy PigFace is back.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I hope they really bite her azz at the reunion..now I will watch that lol.

    • Hey Tart! Hope you’re having a good day 🙂

      • TartLemon

        Hey Doc! Did some spring cleaning this morning. Maybe next week I’ll catch up to at least Spring 2009.

        • Ahahahaha…you’re so funny. That sounds like the story of my life. Btw, thank you for your kind words previously.

          • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ✿♡❀♡❁

            No problem Doc. You are most deserving. You have always been sweet & kind to me, the least I can do is return the favor. 😉
            I sooo feel like screaming like that sometimes! Hee-hee.
            That Honey-Do list never seems to get shorter or have an end in sight does it?!

        • Birdie11

          Wait…are we related?? LOL

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      I agree with your take. Shannon’s issue really is with Trampra, not Whoville.

  • Norrth

    Does anyone know what Brooks does for a living? Vicki claims he works so hard they don’t have time to talk or see each other. Really?

    • Poke Vicki in unmentionable places….GROSS! LOL!

    • TartLemon

      Yep, that’s what I heard Vicki say too. When Brooks said he didn’t want to spend time with Vicki’s friends I thought it was more like THEY didn’t want to spend time with Brooks.

      Nobody on the show who knows Brooks wants anything to do with him. Vicki had cull the weakest (Shannon) from the herd to have anyone to go on the trip with.

    • lloleary

      I think he drives one of those mini “Clown Cars” for the Shriner’s in their parades… LOL!

  • You’re exactly right lloleary. You summed her pompous ass up precisely. You can always tell when a person is not from money.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    Interesting take. I can’t stand Heather either–and would love to see her removed from the show–but I think the entire blame for this episode lands squarely on *Trampra’s* shoulders. Trampra is a horrible friend–and regardless of how arrogant and condescending Whoville is–it was totally Trampra’s fault that words about Shannon and David’s marriage got out.

    And Shannon has no high ground on talking about others behind their backs. She is constantly dissing Heather so why wouldn’t Heather talk about her as well? They both speak badly about each other.

    But I don’t care for Shannon and I’ll say that right up front. I think she treats her husband absolutely atrociously and I don’t blame him a bit for wanting a divorce. She even knows she is doing it but she can’t seem to stop belittling him–especially in front of their children AND on national television. I find Shannon as insufferable as Whoville. And also, I think Shannon WAS in the wrong at her Christmas party. For someone who supposedly did Cotillion–to treat any guest at a party the way she did Shannon was absolutely inexcusable. Even if Shannon (rightfully) had an issue with Heather, that was not the place and especially not inserting herself into Trampra and Whoville’s convo. That should have waited for another time. And speaking of talking about people–they were ALL yacking about Whoville behind her back. None of them have any high road.

    I will be shocked if David and Shannon stay married for longer than another year. Also, I HATE the way she constantly refers to herself in the third person. I find that so annoying: “Shannon Beador doesn’t roll that way.” Blech!

    All these women are horrid bitches and I wouldn’t want to be friends with any of them, most especially Trampra who is an evil, despicable human being and the worst friend in the world. I feel sorry for Edwina.

  • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ✿♡❀♡❁

    As usual another awesome recap Norrth!

    These women irritate the hell out of me. I would need to slap quite a few of them in the back of the head just to knock some of the stupid out. Go Ninja Nun on their butts. School these bishes!
    Incoming! Fffffffffwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaappppppppp!!!!!!

    I agree with a lot of the other comments that Shannon should have confronted Tamara for opening her big mouth, but what do you expect form a 2 faced bish? We all know what Tamara is about. Did Shannon never watch the show? I mean, come on now.
    I also think Heather is a twatwaffle for not admitting her ‘role’, (hee-hee get it ‘ROLE’), in putting Shannon’s personal info on blast. If you are big & bad & bold enough to repeat someones personal business to a bunch of other people, then be big & bad & bold enough to own that nasty ish if that person comes to confront you about it! GTFU Heather. Money doesn’t buy class Princess!

    Icky & Crooks? OMG! OMF’nG!! There isn’t enough brain bleach in the world to get that image out of my head. Bravo needs to give us a warning like the News does. You know. “Some scenes may contain disturbing images & may not be suitable for all viewers!”

          ROTFLMAO!

      Sadly, she does make crap happen…. which is a reason no one should trust her, in my opinion. Too bad Tamra doesn’t bring good drama (at least I don’t think of the drama she brings as good drama).

        ITA! She only brings her ‘type’ of Tamrarama to the show. Guess she’ll do anything to keep getting that Bravo paycheck. :/

    1st Shannon is to blame here as she’s the one that went on tv & spoke about her marriage issues & the email from her husband. If she was sooooo concerned with this getting back to her kids then why go on tv & mention it? Wouldn’t the word spread to more people over tv then from Heather’s few friends? So she should be mad at herself to start off with.

    2nd Tamra is the one that I would have issues with. She’s the one that has the friendship & not only blabbed but lied about blabbing. She only came clean when she knew she was caught. She then turned the apology around & acted shocked when Shannon said that she apologized. Turned it right back around on Heather.

    3rd I’m not a huge Heather fan but plenty of women gossip with their friends about other women they don’t care for. Right or wrong, that happens. She’s not friends with Shannon & felt attacked by her. I don’t find it surprising that she talked about her to her friends. Tamra is the one that has the loyalty to Shannon not Heather.

      LOL
      You had me up until ‘Tamra is the one that has the loyalty’ 😀
      Tamra–>loyalty—>neva going to happen UNLESS there’s $omething in it for her.

        I was speaking from Shannon’s side. She said her & Tamra have grown very close. Tamra said they were like “sisters”. So the loyalty would be expected from Tamra, not from Heather who isn’t a friend & dislikes her.

        • twifan2

          I guess Shannon has never seen any past episodes of RHW OC then? :/
          That would have helped her with where to put her trust in ppl.

      • all about tamra a l l day long…. $$

    • I AGREE 1Shannon is to blame here as she’s the one that went on tv and

      I think Shannon felt it was her story to tell and that Heather did something she didn’t want anyone to do – introduce the topic of divorce, especially to women neither of them knew well. What she revealed is something her children would know, daddy moved out. Heather, thanks to Tamra, took it one step farther and said that he was leaving her and that’s giving no hope to Shannon’s family.

      I don’t think she has to choose between Heather or Tamra as the guilty party. They were both guilty, in different ways, and I believe that Heather was protecting her own image, not trying to protect Tamra. It’s a pretty ugly thing to be a part of spreading information about your co-workers — those scenes hadn’t aired yet, by the way,
