Our deepest apologies to the people of Iceland for whatever epic disaster ensued when The Real Housewives Of Orange County descended upon their fair country. For viewers at home, the trip is just beginning though! And Lydia McLaughlin is pretending to be excited about the adventures awaiting them. She’s also making sure to plug her magazine a whole lot, as it’s the impetus for the trip (in theory).
Lydia gushes, “This week’s episode we gear up for Iceland! We get offered a lot of press trips because of NOBLEMAN Magazine, so when we were offered a trip to Iceland we had to make it happen. I have heard so much about Iceland and seen so many great photos. Doug was too busy with our upcoming deadline so I was excited to go represent for NOBLEMAN. We figured if we like it, we could send a writer and photographer and do a big feature for NOBLEMAN.” Hey, you guys – did you catch the name of Lydia and Doug’s magazine? It’s NOBLEMAN!!!
Meghan Edmonds was simply trying to bring a little enlightenment to her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars when she invited them to dinner with Mystic Michaela, but she admits that they weren’t ready for it! Meghan explains her motives for the disastrous dinner and weighs in on the mess between Peggy Sulahian and Shannon Beador.
Meghan starts off explaining why she thinks that these women were so afraid of Mystic Michaela, “I think people are sometimes afraid of psychics either one: because of what they’re hiding or two: because of what they already know to be the truth. But Mystic Michaela provides so much insight into your life so I thought it would be nice to be able to provide that sort of insight to my friends.”
Peggy starts off sharing her empathy for Vicki Gunvalson‘s health journey. “Watching Vicki in the cardiologist’s office took me back to when I began my difficult journey. Hearing that she has an abnormal EKG and an enlarged heart was not easy. Through my trial, Vicki has been one person that has encouraged me and shown concern. I hope that I can be there for her.” She adds, “Her decision not to attend Meghan’s dinner revealed that she is focusing on herself.”
Out of all the Real Housewives, Vicki Gunvalson has been in this franchise the longest. So why does she seem to forget that cameras are recording her and that she has to be accountable for her own words and actions. Does she not watch Real Housewives of Orange County? That’s the only way I could (semi) understand where Vicki is coming from.
Last week Vicki royally screwed up that meetup with Tamra Judge when she told her that Eddie Judgeonly married her to get a gym and brought up the gay rumors. AGAIN. Outing someone’s alleged sexual preferences should not be a story line, yet it has been many times throughout the Real Housewives franchise.
Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County the little detective that can’t stop, Meghan Edmonds, decided it would be a great idea to host a party with a mystic named Michaela. You don’t need psychic powers to predict that this would go badly! Then to make matters worse they all left for Iceland – cause traveling to the ends of the earth with your enemies always turns out so swell!
What was Meghan hoping to find? Proof that Vicki Gunvalson never loved Tamra at all? Or perhaps a reading on Peggy Sulahian‘s cancer scans? Or maybe what’s really inside Tamra Judge‘s six-pack core? All she found was a big old mess of Shannon Beador shrieking about David being the most trustworthy man alive while the Mystic watched open-mouthed.
Lydia McLaughlin has left us all confused this season. She’s been both the voice of reason and a total pot-stirrer who finds herself iced out, but she certainly never lacks for finding herself in the midst of drama.
The Real Housewives Of Orange County star warns that there is still plenty of craziness in store – especially once the cast lands in Iceland “I feel like this season finally really picks up and everybody is together and we leave the country together so there’s nowhere to hide, conversations have to happen,” Lydia shared. “People have to talk or express how they’re feeling about one another.”
Did you know that Peggy Sulahianis Armenian? Just in case you didn’t catch it, she made sure to mention it for the 984,434,153th time during the last Real Housewives of Orange County episode that the fans were subjected to watching. This season has been a total snooze fest and focusing the most recent episode around Peggy’s wedding anniversary party wasn’t helping manners.
SOS! SOS! When are the cast vacation episodes airing? This show is in desperate need of some excitement this season. Instead we had to watch Peggy and Diko Sulahian celebrating a twenty two year wedding anniversary. Good for them, but the only semi-interesting thing that happened during this episode was Diko confronting Shannon Beador about something her husband David Beadorsaid.
