I can't believe the interest in Tamra!
Now if I lived across the street from Dave Matthews I would get it.
I don't have any juicy gossip or scandalous stories.
They lived in a cute, small 3 bedroom house.
They were really busy, yet friendly.
She came to Jason quite often asking for advice about her teenage son.
(She knew he was a youth pastor.)
But I mostly remember her appearing lonely.
She spent most days sitting on her front step in her velour sweatsuits.
Talking on the phone.
I don't know where her kids were.
I didn't really make an effort to get to know her.
I can make excuses for that...
I was busy with my friends...
Maybe she was intimidating.
But she was nothing like she is on T.V. now.
Not sure if they edit her to look that way, or that the money and fame have changed her.
But each day, Lucy sleeps in the crib that they gave us.
I was pregnant with Joy and their daughter had just outgrown it.
So I remember her as being generous.
Not the person she is every Tuesday night.
Because the Tuesday night Tamra is sad.
