When Lamar was hospitalized Khloe was notified as his next of kin and it emerged that the estranged spouses had never finalized their divorce – proceedings which began two years ago amid Lamar’s descent into drug and alcohol abuse after his NBA career ended.
In sickness and in health indeed, because Khloe and Lamar apparently realized how much they love each other and decided to call off their divorce – which was moments away from being finalized.
Last week, in response to the season finale, Vicki speculated about why we never heard anything else about Tamra’s bout with cervical cancer. (I still find that supremely odd, gotta say!). Responding to Vicki’s accusation, Tamra tweeted, “Shes just deflecting. I never made my health a story line. Kinda like her brain tumor she claims to have.”
Vicki immediately tweeted to explain she actually suffered from a condition called Cholesteatomas. “I never said I had a brain tumor. I had 8 surgeries for cholesteatoma’s that ate thru my scull and ended up in the base of brain.” Vicki did share her story on Real Housewives Of Orange County way back in season 4 or 5.
Following his possible drug overdose resulting in a coma, Lamar Odom has been discharged from a Las Vegas hospital. While that’s undoubtedly a positive he could suffer lingering medical issues and may even be in need of a kidney transplant!
Yesterday Lamar was transported from Vegas to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA with Khloe Kardashian by his side (who is his doctor?!) to receive “specialized care.”
Reportedly the former NBA superstar will undergo 6 hours of daily dialysis in the hopes of rehabilitating in his failing kidneys. With the dialysis Lamar is “showing signs of improvement,” but he still ultimately may need a kidney transplant in the future. “His kidneys are shot,” explains an insider to TMZ.
As far as Real Housewives Of Orange County reunions go this one was very calculated. I’m not saying it wasn’t deserved – BECAUSE IN MANY WAYS IT SO WAS – but it was abundantly clear the ladies conspired to ‘stick together’ and focus all the animosity on Vicki Gunvalson. The ladies definitely leveraged their ‘fake friendship kumbaya’ routine to take-on Vicki as a unified group.
And why do I have an inkling that all these new-found best friendships of the RHOC, centered around ‘Vile Vicki‘, are completely fake and next season will be exploding in everyone’s faces? Meanwhile Tamra Judge and Vicki will become each other’s Friendship Warriors once again.
Andy, sensing the Confusion By Satan creepy calm, quizzes Vicki about how many Xanax she took. Vicki insists, “I don’t have anything in me by water and coffee.” Which equals Vicki being full of shit! Or she’ll be pissing the sofa to mark her territory as OG of The OC. Who knows – maybe she’s scored an endorsement deal for Puppy Pads?
Tonight begins the reputedly epic reunion where Vicki is confronted with details about her relationship to Brooks Ayers and what she knows about his cancer. Andy Cohen described it as a “very adult” reunion, explaining that although there was drama and arguing, there were no tantrums and screaming. Despite, obviously, nothing was resolved between Vicki and the other ladies.
In the case of Lauren Manzo as her wedding approaches so too does the nagging about when she will be carrying on the illustrious Manz0-Scalia lineage and fulfilling her role and Caroline and Denise’s grandchild vessel. Caroline and Denise, henceforth, “Team Grandma” are on a two-pronged mission to get Lauren pregnant even if they have to tie her up in an Italian receiving blanket and inject Vito’s sperm into her with a meat tenderizer. Yes – it’s that drastic.
It appears that Vicki Gunvalson is doing some serious backtracking, or possibly righting some serious wrongs depending on how you look at it, because she’s doing a little fact checking of her own! Satan may love confusion, but Google sure doesn’t!
Addressing the season finale – and really the entire season – of Real Housewives Of Orange County in her blog, Vicki is left with “mixed emotions” and confusion. “I don’t know how or why the season ended the way it did, but all I want to share with you at this time is my perspective and what I went through this year AFTER the death of my mother.”
After being constantly questioned about whether or not Brooks Ayers is lying about cancer (and whether or not Vicki was complicit in this lie), the OG of OC decided to finally explain why she was so evasive and defensive. She also ‘clears up’ (eye roll) that mysterious IV story that started circulating around the season finale. But most interestingly, Vicki also questions some other Real Housewives claims of “cancer”. Ahem… Tamra!
