Why is Real Housewives of Orange County a medical drama all of a sudden? From suspicions about cancer diagnoses to vaginal rejuvenation to vasectomies to colonics, this season is just all about the medical procedures… and it is a total snooze fest. What happened to the good old days of whooping it up at the bar and throwing wine in someone’s face? Let’s get back to things like that. Please.
Meghan Edmonds shared her thoughts on the last episode in her Bravo blog. She admitted, “It was a little awkward seeing Lydia McLaughlin for the first time since our hike, but I’m glad that both Jimmy and I were able to go. I also felt bad about not calling to check in on Lydia after the Farmhouse dinner. It sucks to feel left out whether the intentions were pure or not (and in this case they were) and I hate that Lydia’s feelings were hurt.”
I don’t think Shannon Beador intended to make Lydia feel excluded, but why would she want to invite her if they fight every single time they see each other? Why would Lydia even want to go if Shannon was there? Oh right: for a story line. She probably had more fun hanging at home with her family, but the lack of invite to a casual dinner was the main topic of conversation during that last episode.
And then there’s the chatter about Peggy’s mastectomy and whether or not she has or had cancer. I was done with this story line before it even began. Meghan remarked, “It looks like David’s [Beador] conversation with Diko [Sulahian] about Peggy’s mastectomy went the same as our conversation with Peggy at Farmhouse. So confusing.” And boring. Just like the rest of this season.
Meghan insisted, “David wasn’t interrogating Diko about Peggy’s cancer – Diko was the one who brought it up!” She continued, “David was trying to communicate with Diko and follow the story but got confused like the rest of us. And then the end of Diko’s story was, ‘you freak out.’ What?? Everyone is just trying to understand the full story, but to no avail. But that doesn’t mean we’re not thankful that Peggy is healthy now. That truly is all that matters.” Is the cast questioning this from a place of a concern or a place of curiosity? Considering that they’ve known Peggy for all of five minutes, it’s most likely the latter.
And then Meghan addressed Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson getting colonics together…. in front of the cameras. Just like the rest of us, Meghan admitted, “Ew. I’m SO grossed out that Kelly and Vicki did colonics in front of each other…what the hell? Yuck yuck yuck! I get REALLY grossed out by bathroom stuff and after watching that, I’m so sorry that you had to watch me in the OR last season when I got pregnant with Aspen!”
TELL US- ARE YOU CURIOUS ABOUT PEGGY’S MASTECTOMY OR ARE YOU OVER THE STORY LINE? WAS DAVID RUDE TO DIKO OR WAS HE JUST TRYING TO FOLLOW THE CONVERSATION?
