Real Housewives of Orange County

Peggy Sulahian Thinks Lydia McLaughlin’s Religious Beliefs Should Be Off Limits; Sad About The RHOC Divorce Announcements

Wait – was Peggy Sulahian actually at the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion? Because I don’t recall her saying much, aside from a confusing explanation of how coal works atop a grill. In any case, Peggy has a lot to say about what other people said at the reunion, and she breaks it all down in her blog this week!

According to Peggy, Meghan Edmonds needs to back off the attacks on Lydia McLaughlin. She expresses her outrage at Meghan questioning Lydia’s religious beliefs: “There are some topics that are off limits and another person’s faith should be one of them. Why would you dare attack someone’s faith?”

Shannon Beador opens up about her divorce

The first part of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion was shockingly real as the ladies discussed broken marriages and motherhood. Shannon Beador finally stopped shrieking “WOOOOWWWWW! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! A VOW RENEWAL!” and quit convincing herself that David loves her. Which has always been the real joke. I mean, it’s been over for years – vow renewal and all –  but Shannon finally accepted it and moved out. Addendum: David finally kicked her out.

I mean it’s not like anyone believed this happy re-united love story of David and Shannon, although she certainly thought they were this inspiration to us all, but it’s still sad to see Shannon processing everything. Clearly she never saw it coming, which is the saddest thing of all.

The other hot topic was whether Jesus ate Lydia McLaughlin‘s brain, thus making her poisoned by a fear of drag queens. OK, it wasn’t quite that dramatic unless you’re Meghan Edmonds.

Kelly Dodd

This season, Kelly Dodd joined the ranks of Bravo’s unsurprising divorces. Kelly filed for divorce from Michael Dodd, her husband of 11 years, two months ago after viewers witnessed them fighting and trash talking each other for two seasons on Real Housewives Of Orange County.

Not even some sage advice about marriage and intimacy from Vicki Gunvalson could put MiKelly back together again! Imagine that… (sarcasm). What’s unique about Kelly’s situation, however, is that this is actually the second time she’s filed for divorce from Michael – and this time she hopes to see it through to the finish line. Kelly shares that they’re already working out a custody agreement for Jolie, 12.

Instagram Roundup: Porsha Williams, Terra Jole, Dorinda Medley, Rasheed Frost, & More

Unfortunately, reality TV shows do not bless us viewers with new episodes every single week. Thank god for social media to fill in the gaps between seasons or just to give the fans a glimpse of what was happening behind the scenes to provide us with some additional content. This week’s Instagram Roundup of reality star photos does not disappoint.

The Real Housewives of New York ladies posted some great snaps. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams shared a rare photo of herself rocking that no-makeup look. There is a photo of Southern Charm stars Craig Conover, (a now-blonde) Kathryn Dennis, and Kathryn’s son Saint that has plenty of Instagram users wondering if the long-time friends are currently dating. Hold up – Craig’s ex Naomie Olindo posted a photo with Kathryn and Danni Baird. So it looks like they’re all just friends, but you never know.

Peggy Sulahian Takes Responsibility For Her Part In The Misunderstanding With Shannon Beador

As we wind down this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County and hang our hopes on some exciting bits of drama the reunion episodes coming up, Peggy Sulahian is reflecting on this week’s finale episode. Peggy shares her thoughts on her “finer things” lifestyle, her relationship with Shannon Beador, and more.

Peggy gushed over Meghan King‘s candle party. She is also trying to understand why the women seem perplexed over her “pampered princess” life. Peggy feels if she was a man, nobody would question it one bit. “The launch party was beautiful and styled to perfection. Every detail was attended to, and it looked beautiful, as did so many of the guests. Everyone was dressed up and stunning. As the evening continued, Kelly brought to my attention (again) the fact that I am a pampered princess. What can I say — I am! I don’t understand why they are taken aback by it. Haven’t you seen a woman who is cared for? It isn’t just that. Yes, I enjoy the finer things in life, but I also worked for them. If I was a man, would people mention it so much? And in this time, my world was confined to that which I needed to focus on: my family and our company. I stand with my husband. We work together. Our lives have been our children, the business, our families, and our marriage! These have kept me busy for a long time. Not until recently have I had time for other endeavors. I focused on the charities with my children’s schools and our community. But with all the changes occurring in our lives, things have changed. So now, I’m on to the next phase of my life.”

Shannon Beador Says Vicki Gunvalson’s Apology In Iceland “Wasn’t Very Sincere”; Admits Tamra Judge Hurt Her Feelings “A Few Times” This Season

This was a brutal season for Shannon Beador, but she seems to be taking it all in stride and owning her shit. She announced that she and David Beador have separated. She has admitted to projecting her feelings on the other women in the cast. She has apologized for blaming her weight gain on stress from Vicki Gunvalson.

Now she seems like she is ready for a fresh start and that new beginning might include a friendship with former enemy Kelly Dodd.

RHOC Season 12 Finale

Was last night not one of the most boring Real Housewives Of Orange County finales ever?! At least Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge completely gave up the pretense of trying to fix their friendship – which was refreshing. Other than that the only drama was some weird mythical uproar Shannon Beador suddenly developed for Peggy Sulahian who is literally a walking coma. Diko has definitely done all the heavy-lifting in the drama department with those two.

I get that Shannon and Peggy don’t like each other, but this drama erupted over some old news and seemed like drama for drama’s sake. Sort of like Shannon herself!

This all predicated around a candle party. Yes, a candle party. A candle party to celebrate all the haaaaard difficult work we never saw Meghan Edmonds actually DO to launch her signature collection.

Lydia in Iceland

Did Peggy Sulahian save this Real Housewives of Orange County season by offending everyone (the cast members and the viewers) at the end of the Iceland trip? For the most part the fans can agree on two things: this season has been disappointing and Peggy needs to go. Nevertheless, she did make that last episode pretty exciting- even though she crossed boundaries more than once.

She said that Shannon Beador’s husband isn’t loyal to her and she called out Meghan Edmonds’ mothering abilities when she talked about her baby crying. She even made Lydia McLaughlin late for a dinner that she planned and intended to host. Peggy offended everyone and she was the one who left the trip.
