While many of her castmates rallied around her in support, Heather Dubrow as not one of them. After a testy reunion where both Heather and her husband Terry continued to complain about Shannon and her marriage continued to be under strain, Shannon is fighting back. First, she posted a photo of her in bed with David to quiet down all those divorce rumors being spread by naysayers.
Well, after Tamra refused to apologize for terming Lizzie, “Kentucky fried titties,” on part 1 on the reunion, Lizzie is finally opening up about the body image issues she has had her entire life, and why she has finally accepted her God-given assets.
Last night was the first installment of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion – was it me, or was that kind of lack-luster? After a season of serious hysteria and drama I expected something with a little more oomph, but it all felt watered down. Maybe they made a pact that they wouldn’t argue as loudly or as crazily just to spite Andy Cohen? Hey – stranger things have happened!
Can we just be done with Brooks? Talk about beating a deadbeat! He’s smarmy, he’s scummy, no one in Vicki’s life likes him, but for some inexplicable reason she likes him. A lot. So much so that she pretty much imploded her marriage to Donn over her “emotional affair” with Brooks, and she had to shell out big (in massive check form) to finalize her divorce. Tamra can’t forgive the recording of Brooks calling Vicki a “whore” and threatening to beat her (truly unforgivable) and Vicki has forgiven and is moving forward.
Despite all the drama – and some sketchy rumors that she was fired – Tamra promises to return next season! When asked on twitter if she was leaving after this season, Tamra responded “not a chance.” Adding, “I have been told im the highest rated on our show. Just keeping it real baby” Well, of course she is – real classy!
Luckily being part of the show taught Shannon a lot of lessons about herself. Like she doesn’t have to be manipulated by middle-aged mean grandmas girls like Tamra Barney and that she is a big enough person to actually accept an apology and be sincere, unlike Heather Dubrow. As Shannon reflects on the season and gives her two-cents on the ridiculous finale.
“When I first met Tamra, she continually complained about her relationship with Heather. I never suggested that Tamra stay away from Heather, that Heather was evil, or that Heather was a horrible person. I did say that I saw black in Heather’s eyes on the day that she kicked me out of her house,” Shannon begins.
For those of you hoping for a resolution between Lizzie Rovsek and Tamra Judge, don’t hold your breath. Last night the ladies got together at Vicki Gunvalson’s home to relive their Bali trip with their husbands. I only watched the Bali trip, weren’t they there? Why would they want to relive that? Do they not remember all the yelling?
