Heather promised that while the next few episodes are easing us in by introducing Kelly, and reconnecting the women, things really take off in a few episodes. “This was a building episode,” she says. “A lot of information was sort of subtly given, so I hope people were really paying attention.”
There have only been two episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County’s eleventh season and I’m already so over Vicki Gunvalson and her extremely forced friendship with Kelly Dodd. It is so obvious that they both just want to hang out so they can get camera time since they have no other friends in the cast.
I don’t get how Meghan Edmonds is Kelly’s link to the group since Kelly immediately started sucking up to her nemesis from last season. This Kelly girl comes off as an attention-seeking shit stirrer. So I would love to know what Meghan thinks of letting her “friend” into the inner circle.
Last night someone on Real Housewives Of Orange County was diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Of course that’s not surprising. At. All. But what is surprising is that Kelly Dodd claims it was her husband Michael, former COO of a massive company, who was the afflicted. Are we sure Kelly didn’t misread something? After all, she isVicki GunvlasonJr. – and we know how Vicki happens to misread medical documents!
Oh last night was a doozy. Everyone is on a yacht with Vicki fauxpologizing to Heather Dubrow about her presumed role in the Brooks assumed cancer scam. Obviously this conversation went on and on, but we got like 4 disjointed snippets of Vicktim pretending she has no idea why the women are angry with her after she admitted to seeing “red flags” but reacted by yelling, “Buy my cancer juice! Love my boyfriend! I Do! I DO! I DO! I DO! Oh wait – there’s no altar, but I do see a cross! I’m persecuted like Jesus! WOO HOO!”
Last night on Watch What Happens Live, Tamra Judge and Odd Mom Out’s Jill Kargman (love that show!) hung out with Andy Cohen in the clubhouse. They joked about Tamra’s dark spray tan against Jill’s bright white skin (Twilight meets Dynasty), Tamra dished on more Vicki Gunvalson drama, a caller tried to get a rise out of her, and so much more.
Andy plays the clip of Vicki sobbing in the limo on last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Tamra says, “It’s heartbreaking. I don’t want to see anybody upset and hurting but you gotta do the right thing. She made zero effort with any of us. The last time I saw her was at the reunion show. She Tweeted saying she apologized to everybody, but she didn’t. So it was an awkward feeling at the boat because she didn’t make an effort, so we didn’t make an effort. When I was in front of her I was very nice to her but she really stayed away from everybody.”
Aside from the social issues within the clique, Vicki also had another scary experience when she got in a dangerous dune buggy accident that was caught on camera. Vicki almost died and so did her cast mates Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow.
Jenny shares that she thinks since Vicki didn’t take Briana’s side in the whole Brooks thing that there is something seriously wrong “upstairs.” Tamra says she’s given up trying to figure Vicki out and believes that she and Brooks are soulmates. “They’re a match made in heaven.”
On tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalsoncries tears over wanting to be happy and not wanting her co-stars to be angry with her over the Brooks Ayers mess. Vicki meets up for lunch with newbie Kelly where they find many things common and Vicki reveals to Kelly that her breakup with Brooks was more painful than her marriage ending.
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.
