The Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion has left a bad taste in my mouth. Right after I wrote this I ate like 16 pieces of Halloween candy. It’s my version of cleansing.
The highlight from Part 3, if you could call it that, was Vicki Gunvalson finally admitting she doesn’t believe Brooks Ayers has cancer. She “covered” for him all season because she did believe him until very recently. The other highlight was that no one screamed in decibels so shrill Andy’s dog howled backstage. Briana describes Vicki’s uncannily calm demeanor as being “in a state of shock” over how much of her life Vicki has messed up over Brooks. Or the five half a Xanax she took.
The low points: Everything else. Including Meghan King Edmonds‘ hair – why must it look like a Kim Z Generation 1 wig? The more I look at it, the more I see bad imitation senator’s wife.
Lizzie Rovsek didn’t attend the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion and has been on the sidelines this season, keeping herself removed from the drama and the accusations, but that doesn’t mean Lizzie lacks an opinion on the happenings.
Discussing her perception of the reunion and the highs (and very, very lows) of this season, Lizzie has one major takeaway observation: “It seems like all season everyone can say whatever they want, no matter how hurtful or inappropriate it may seem; but as soon as Vicki opens her mouth everyone is so quick to be appalled and shocked.”
It’s been an emotional year for the Sister Wives crew: divorce, marriage, legal marriage, pregnancy, and finally, adoption. That’s pretty minimal drama considering we’re talking about a family of about 62 zillion people, right?! But the biggest change: Kody Brown legally wed Robyn – his fourth wife – and on June 17th also legally adopted her three children from a previous relationship. Cause Hair Flips really should be assuming more dependents!
Speaking out on the exciting experience, Robyn and Kody describe it as providing “validation” and security to their family.
Meri Brown, Kody’s first wife and for 20 years his lone legal wife, graciously stepped aside to let Robyn take her place as the one legally yoked to Kody’s luscious locks. It’s like a fairy tale!
Kelly alleged that producers provoked the backstage hair pulling argument with Abby to force Kelly off the show, then detained her from fleeing in order to press charges. Abby did press charges of misdemeanor assault, which were dropped.
Leah once had primary custody, with Corey getting the twins on weekends. Lately Leah’s increasingly erratic behavior (which Leah blamed on anxiety, depression, and poor coping skills – NOT DRUGS or Robbie Kidd‘s peen!) has everyone concerned about the Teen Mom 2 star’s ability to care for her daughters. After repeated school tardies and absences, Corey had enough of waiting for Leah to get her act together!
Leah is devastated by the judge’s decision, but determined fight back by appearing on the cover of Us Weekly to question Corey’s motives. Leah has also filed a motion for the court to reconsider their decision.
Kim Richards’ year of living Lindsay Lohan continues as she manages to, yet again, avoid jail time!
In August the former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star was arrested for shoplifting over $600 dollars worth of goods from Target. Kim pled no contest to one count of petty theft and was able to scrape by with a sentence of 36 months probation, 300 hours of community service, and is required to attend 52 AA meetings (at least one a week). Kim is also permanently banned returning from the scene of the crime.
During Tamra’s sex tape release party, Tamra, while was wearing a lace, see-thru catsuit while thrusting and gyrating with a strap-on. Vicki joked to Heather Dubrow, “She pretty much lost custody of one, she doesn’t want to lose two more,” Vicki’s comment referenced Tamra’s ex-husband Simon taking Tamra to court, in part, claiming her her lewd behavior on RHOC was detrimental to their children.
Upon hearing Vicki’s comment Heather was scandalized – so scandalized she waited months to reveal this to Tamra (on television, no less, cause they’re close like that!). Heather’s reason being Tamra was keeping her custody issues private. Until Tamra needed a convincing reason for her love of being Jesus real!
