The franchise may be called Real Housewives, but in actuality a lot of these ladies are not even wives. In fact, viewers got to see many marriages fall apart in front of the reality TV cameras.
There are some former couples that were just too annoying to watch. I felt a vicarious sense of relief when these people split up. Then there were other splits that I just never saw coming and felt weirdly sad about. Sadly, there have been a lot of Real Housewives breakups over the years.
Not everyone is cut out to be a Real Housewife and there’s nothing wrong with that. In all honesty, it might even be a compliment. Sometimes Bravo casts women who are just way too normal to be on reality TV. There’s nothing wrong with them as humans, but they are just not fit to expose their lives on reality television.
I have no idea why some of these people were cast, but it happened and we all had to sit through it. Most of the Real Housewives ladies are amazing, then there are some that were just way too boring.
Vicki starts off by sharing that last year was the worst of her life. “A lot has happened in my life since you last saw me on the couch last season with Andy and hopefully you will be happy with how far I have come in my personal life. I have to say last year was probably the worst year of my life, and I’m glad it’s over and behind me.”
There really wasn’t much happening during the Season 11 premiere of Real Housewives of Orange County. Sure, we got to catch up on what was going on with the ladies’ private lives, but there wasn’t a lot of interaction between the Housewives. I missed the OG’s, but I was bored to death.
Nothing really happened other than the introduction of the new girl, Meghan Edmonds’s friend Kelly Dodd. Aside from me feeling a little confused and wondering what Cheryl Burke was doing on RHOC– you have to admit that they look alike, right? Or maybe that’s just in my mind. I don’t know, but I just didn’t know what to make of Kelly and I honestly couldn’t picture her being good friends with Meghan. This was especially true after I saw Kelly and Vicki Gunvalson hitting it off during that yacht party. I am so curious to know what Meghan thinks of the immediate connection that these two seemed to have.
The one thing that I really wanted to see ended up at the end of the episode in a “to be continued” moment. I was dying to see what Vicki had to say to Heather Dubrow when she took her aside on that yacht party. I can’t believe that I have to wait a whole week for something interesting to happen, however, Heather had some things to say about about the premiere episode in her blog.
Shannon starts off, “And so it begins again. Things have been going incredibly well for me since last season. I have spent the bulk of my time being a wife and mother. David and I have been traveling and spending quality time together. Every time I blink my eyes it seems as though my daughters continue to grow and grow. I don’t want to miss anything.”
