Washing up on the shores of the California beaches, amid the shells and driftwood, is the rubble of last season’s Real Housewives Of Orange County. Littering the sands with shards of shattered friendships, filthy accusations, and broken down dignities; a bent halo, some empty vodka and champs bottles, and Shannon Beador‘s former self, now soaked and waterlogged by the hours of tears she’s spilled over the terrible lies Vicki Gunvalson told. The fate of the world, and the Orange County coastline — along with the safety and health of Briana’s children – all rests in Vicki’s handbag! Thankfully she’s not crazy or anything…
So the taglines: let’s start there. What makes Tamra Judge “highly prized”? Or was she just proud of herself for coming up with a rhyme. Hook’d on Phonics worked for her! Vicki’s tagline informs us that she’s not going home, but what she means is that this show is her home, and you are not going to drop any interloping houses on her head! She clicked her ruby slippers together three times and dragged Briana from the land of tornadoes to get here.
So, before we get into the all-new drama, let’s take a trip down memory lane to relive all the craziness from season 11. Maybe a tequila will help refresh things?! And season 11 was full of crashes and burns (literally), boozes and burns (literally), and plenty of rides from hell.
The season opened with Vicki all by herself, and seeking absolution after lying – in some capacity – about what she knew about Brooks Ayers‘ phony cancer scheme. Obviously no one wants to forgive Vicki because it doesn’t seem possible that she totally didn’t realize he was faking a terminal illness for money and attention.
WOO HOO! Real Housewives Of Orange County returns next week and I am peeing my pants Vicki Gunvalson-style with excitement. And as a little sneak peak of what’s to come, Bravo revealed the season 12 taglines for the enormous cast of ladies!
Whether you’re a Kelly Doddfriend or foe, almost everyone can agree that she’s not someone who should be messed with. She has no qualms about standing up for herself in any situation so it’s not at all surprising that she held her own when a random guy got physical and tried to steal from her while she was trying to celebrate Fourth of July.
It’s time for the annual Alexis Bellino family vacation – complete with smiling photos, family fun, itty-bitty outfits, and Jimplant. Oh… actually, no Jim Bellino.
Alexis, her kiddos, and it looks like several family members (including her mom) headed to Colorado for the yearly #BellinoFamilyVacation, however the former Real Housewives Of Orange County star’s husband must have stayed behind in Cali to run their trampoline empire. Or else Jim is always the photographer, never the model.
In a recent interview, Tamra admits that she’s still not on good terms with Vicki and Kelly Dodd, and she didn’t really get to know newcomer Peggy Sulahian as well as she could have. She shares that “it’s such a different season this year. The cast was a little bit split almost three quarters of the way through filming. I don’t know what Kelly and Vicki did most of the time because I was filming much more with Meghan [Edmonds] and Shannon [Beador]. Peggy is the new girl and I didn’t film with her all that much either.”
Botched season 4 premiered last night in what promises to be the most intense season yet. While Paul Nassif‘s career is very much settled, the ex-husband of Adrienne Maloof is still looking for love and he’s more than ready to settle down.
This season viewers will see Paul, whom Terry Dubrow describes as “single with a Capital S!” on a quest to find a special lady. One criteria that’s on his list: no more Real Housewives!
