Once again, this is another Real Housewives of Orange County season that isn’t look so good for Vicki Gunvalson. Obviously no one is over that whole cancer scam from last year and Shannon Beador is the one really leading the charge. Personally, I think the cast members and the fans would be able to forgive Vicki if she just took responsibility for her actions and stopped changing her story to play up the victim persona.
Everyone has been blinded by love and I don’t think Vicki is an awful person, but her inconsistencies are way too much for Shannon and the rest of the cast. So, when the ladies say something that’s objectively offensive about Vicki, you know the OG of the OC will be ready to pounce so she can successfully defend herself (for once). It’s definitely a good way to get people to stop talking about Brooks Ayers– at least for a minute.
If you’ll recall, Kelly came on the show as a friend of Meghan Edmonds, but that’s not the way Kelly acted during the latest episode. Now Kelly is defending Vicki (yet again- yawn) and clarifying the insults she threw at Meghan.
“What is up with Kelly Dodd?” – me, every single time I watch Real Housewives of Orange County. I am all for giving people the benefit of the doubt and evaluating people based on your own experiences with them, but I don’t get why Kelly thinks she can have an opinion on the Vicki Gunvalson madness from last year when she wasn’t even in this friend group then.
Kelly came on the show as a friend of Meghan King Edmonds and I keep forgetting that since she is so attached to Vicki. The latest episode was also pretty perplexing when Meghan tried give her some advice about Vicki and Kelly reacted so rudely about it. As of now, no one on this show (except for Vicki) is friendly with Kelly, so maybe Kelly should have taken on her advice and things would be going better for her.
Thankfully, Heather did not dissect Vicki’s non-pology to Shannon Beador, or anymore about Brooks. Just my two cents before we dive in: I don’t think Shannon should forgive Vicki – of all the women who Vicki betrayed with Brooks’ scam, Shannon was hit the hardest (on top of David’s affair), and truly was a friend to Vicki. I want to stop discussing Brooks, but it seems the scab just continues to fester amongst the cast and they aren’t ready to move on from what happened.
I have no idea why Kelly Dodd is going so hard for Vicki Gunvalson when she wasn’t even friends with her before she became a cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County. Obviously, she just knows that being around Vicki, talking about Vicki, or getting involved with anything Vicki-related will get her more screen time and more press.
It makes no sense for Kelly to take up for someone in a situation she was not at all involved with. I’m so over her saying that all of the other ladies are picking on the self-proclaimed “OG of the OC” and so is Heather Dubrow.
Shannon Beador has made it no secret that she wants absolutely nothing to do with Vicki Gunvalson. Obviously that is not at all possible since they are both cast members on Real Housewives of Orange County. And the latest episode showed us all that things are going to be super awkward for the two of them – probably for the rest of the season.
So what is about the whole situation that bothers Shannon so much? Shannon explains.
So everyone is stranded at Kelly Dodd‘s house – which consists of 4 stories of bars and Bansky-esque decor, and is littered with bizarrely behaving bitches in the form of Real Housewives. It was like Alice In Wonderland meets the color white. Off with your head, but first: a spot of vodka for your very unfriendly chat.
Andy replays the clip from tonight’s episode where Meghan trying to warn Kelly about Vicki. Meghan says “It was a little bit disappointing because I was actually trying to give Kelly some heartfelt advice so that she could really fit in with the whole group and that was her reaction. She minimized my advice and I was a little disappointed.”
