In Response to Re: TAMARA BARNEY FROM OC HOUSEWIVES GETS A NEW SPINOFF SHOW:
I don't know...Tamra seemed so heartfelt in her speech and her case of "nerves" appeared to be real. Her comments about her typical (for her) angry responses seemed to be coming from the perspective of someone who's had recent therapy...as if she recently had a (ahem) "breakthrough." It's about time! I believe it for the most part because all of that behavior had to come from somewhere and I've always thought that she was "little girl needy" in spite of her foul mouth and her toughness. She always seemed to want to "fix things" for others she deemed to have "issues" and I frequently wondered if it had to do with her own pathology. If her fixing and advising wasn't welcomed, she got angry at them. I thought she was recognizing herself in the behavior of others and that's why she couldn't stop telling them what was wrong with them.
It's a rather potent lead-in to a show about her upcoming wedding. What with Eddie seemingly not wanting to be "involved" with the planning and execution of their wedding, I rather liked her behind the scenes comment...(paraphrased) "Are you kidding me? Why did you ask me to marry you?"

Well that was a very well put explanation and I tend to think or possibly hope to think that you are correct and that she is still acting out from her own issues. Interesting point about therapy .. do you think that it really helps? While the person may come to understand things that they do, can they really change their behaviors ? I have real doubts about that (do you remember or did you watch the Sopranos and Tony Soprano with his therapist?) but anyway it seems like it would be difficult if not impossible to change some of the basic things about yourself.. and also.. Eddie may like her as she is : ( and why would you think that because someone Eddie in this case does not want to marry you just because he is not interested in the planning of the wedding? because he should do it to please you? and what if that is not who he is.. maybe you should learn that now, before the wedding.
