It is very easy to hate on Kelly Dodd. After all, she’s the new girl on Real Housewives of Orange County so fans have had the least amount of time to invest in her. Oh and Kelly has been at the center of all the drama this season and now Kelly is coming for Tamra Judge. Oh shit.
I know that Kelly has been a lot to watch, but I think we should all be grateful for her presence. Otherwise, this would be another season of all the ladies hating on Vicki Gunvalson for her shady relationship with Brooks Ayers. So at the very least, we need to thank Kelly for detracting from that annoyingness.
Shannon is shocked that Briana questioned why her mom wasn’t invited to Shannon’s big surprise birthday/vow renewal. She blogged, “When watching Vicki’s birthday celebration, I was a bit taken aback when Brianna asked why Vicki wasn’t invited to my surprise birthday party and vow renewal. It’s just a ridiculous question. There is absolutely no reason why David would ever include Vicki in one of the most intimate and important nights of our lives. The last exchange between them at the ’70s party did not end well. Neither Vicki nor Kelly should have been a part of it. Vicki said I have “thrown away our friendship”. She needs to look at herself because her lies caused the demise of our relationship.”
Obviously, Kelly was completely out of line with her ridiculous antics, but none of it was aimed at Heather… so why such an intense reaction? I 100% get sticking up for friends and being upset that they are upset, but I was confused by Heather getting on the phone with her husband Terry Dubrow and crying about how she “doesn’t want to be associated with her.” Is that really that big of a deal? If it is, then maybe she shouldn’t be on Real Housewives of Orange County because she really has no choice if she remains as a cast member.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County was about creating memories. For some that means a south of the border, borderline sex tape featuring guacamole and skinny dipping; for others, it’s forced entrapment of your friends and family in a deceased talk show host’s dessert estate. So everyone be quiet and let Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson imagine worlds of fabricated perfection!
Shannon is on cloud nine. She is so euphoric she has forgotten how to speak Spanish – even though she placed second in the country on the National Spanish Exam? Que?! She better grab her flashcards, cause she is headed to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a re-honeymoon! Of course no Shannon Beador expedition is complete without Shannon Beador accessories!
Last week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County was pretty uneventful. The only thing that happened is that everyone surprised Shannon Beador for her birthday, and then David surprise reaffirmed his re-love with Shannon by making her re-wife him. Then mostly everyone ate cake. And Shannon is still sorry she wore that dress.
This week’s episode, however, will be much more insane! Tonight Vicki Gunvalson celebrates her birthday with a spa weekend, but the Woo Hoos turn into Uh-Ohs when Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd get into it at a deluxe resort after Kelly insults Heather Dubrow.
Everyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County knows that Shannon is very serious about her health and fitness (although not as hardcore as Tamra!), so it makes sense so she is definitely someone I trust when it comes to weight loss tips.
Am I the only one who was a little thrown off by Kelly Dodd being introduced to the Real Housewives of Orange County fans as a friend of Meghan Edmonds? I am just having a lot of trouble seeing the connection there. Meghan is pretty mild mannered and then on the opposite end is Kelly with her explosive personality.
Not only that, but Kelly ended up being fast friends with Meghan’s enemy Vicki Gunvalson which I thought was a really weird immediate move to make. I keep forgetting that Meghan is Kelly’s link to the group for many reasons one of which is that Kelly is always at odds with Meghan’s allies. The whole thing seems weird and I am dying to know what Meghan thinks of her antics from the current season.
The Tamra Judge that we see on Real Housewives of Orange County these days is a far cry from the Tamra of previous seasons. Tamra used to be the first one to start screaming in a fight, but as of now she has just sat back calmly while Kelly Dodd goes off on the other women.
It’s so weird that Tamra is the peaceful one (for now), but that has not stopped her from dishing on all the drama and sharing what she really thinks about Kelly and all of the controversy she has been involved with.
