The Real Housewives of Orange County trip to Ireland was a hot mess.
As usual, Kelly Dodd was popping off and interrupting a good time, but this time the recently reformed Tamra Judge was involved and squaring off against Kelly. It all stemmed from the dumbest disagreement between Kelly and Vicki Gunvalson about Kelly’s lame nose-flicking jokes. Vicki expressed that she was annoyed and told Kelly to stop, Tamra did the same thing, and then Kelly came for Tamra. And eventually it all led to Kelly declaring that she can see why Tamra’s oldest daughter doesn’t talk to her.

Yep. It went there. The episode was a shit show and a half and I’m sure that the fact that the ladies were on pub crawl did not make things any easier.
Watching the episode, I was in shock that Kelly made that comment. Then I was laughing when production shaded Tamra after she declared talking about kids to be “off limits” by playing several clips of Tamra getting into the other women’s business over the years. Now we have a tricky situation with obvious offenses and hypocrisy to observe. And as expected, Tamra is doing what she can to make sure perception of the situation is spun in her favor.
Tamra stated the obvious in her blog when she wrote, “The more Kelly had to drink the more obnoxious she became.”
This is what happened at every single event this season. And of course Kelly had her lame elementary school style jokes – cue my eye roll.
In regard to Kelly‘s “humor” Tamra wrote, “Her canned jokes and flicking everyone in the nose was getting old. When Vicki came up to me annoyed because Kelly once again flicked her, I could totally understand why she was so annoyed. Vicki told her she didn’t like it, but Kelly didn’t care. She replied, ‘No one likes it.’ Then why are you doing it?”
Yeah, honestly that made no sense, but then again, Kelly is doing what she can to stay on this show. Also, I’m confused by how Vicki having a problem with her new “bestie” turned into a Tamra versus Kelly smack down, but that’s what happened.
It was also so random for Kelly to knock Heather Dubrow for not having the sense of humor that she expected her to have since she’s Jewish. In regard to that, Tamra wrote, “When Kelly tells Heather that Jewish people are funny and sarcastic, all I could do was shake my head and think, ‘This girl is ignorant.’ She truly is her own worst enemy.”
Yes, that is for sure. Kelly always finds a way to make things worse for herself. Calling out Heather was such a weird thing to do and it was not at all relevant.
I find it odd that Kelly was talking about how she feared to be in a custody situation similar to Tamra’s in the last few episodes, yet she decided to prey on Tamra based on that topic specifically. That really was so not okay – at all.
Tamra remarked, “I had a conversation with Kelly at Meghan [Edmonds’s] house and she opened up to me about how difficult her separation was for her family. So for her to say what she did, she knew exactly what she was doing by hitting way below the belt and it just goes to show she has NO limits.”
Kelly seems to have a pattern of saying the most hurtful shit possible in every confrontation. Either that or she just knows what it takes to stay on a reality TV show.
The part where Tamra supposedly “pushed” Kelly was conveniently not caught on camera so I have no idea what to believe, but of course Tamra defended herself: “When Shannon [Beador] told me, I ran up to Kelly and grabbed her shoulders and yelled at her. I know that it was not a wise thing to do, and I am very sorry I did that. In Kelly style, she went outside and told everyone that I hit her. This woman cannot stop lying and exaggerating to save her life.”
Kelly will do anything she can to remain as a cast member on this show.
