Real Housewives of Orange County

david-shannon

Shannon Beador is weighing in on last night’s birthday celebrations overload on The Real Housewives of Orange County. She shares her thoughts on Vicki Gunvalson‘s birthday party, her own birthday festivities and the awful rumors about Eddie Judge shared during Vicki’s bash.

Starting off with her own birthday situation, Shannon says we need to back off if we think she needs to shut up already with her whining to David about Vicki’s allegations. “It is difficult to watch my birthday conversation with David. For all of you that are going to tell me to just keep my mouth shut and stop complaining, let me stop you there. I haven’t been bringing up this subject over and over. I don’t talk about it every minute. But on this one year anniversary of the vow renewal, you are actually seeing me talk about things from my heart. I had no intention of going into this subject, but because of the day, it just happened. Yes, I was stressed about the whole Vicki allegation situation because I didn’t want my family to get hurt. We have been through enough. But that was six months ago and I am having the hardest time realizing that David has been distancing himself from me.”

Vicki Hears a Rumor about Tamra

Someone once told me if you have nothing nice to say; say nothing at all. Well, unfortunately I’m not at liberty to do that – sorry Real Housewives Of Orange County. I have nothing nice to say about any of you, and the thought of holding it all in makes me want to cry like I’m Meghan Edmonds fake-sobbing in a canyon. Maybe Meghan’s tears were instal-dried by the wind or evaporated. Or plastic people make plastic tears which just clog in their tear ducts and until they’re plucked out and thrown away.

Meghan and Vicki Gunvalson aren’t so different, are they? It’s ME ME ME all the TIME TIME TIME. No one understands and blah, blah, blah…

Does Peggy have Resting Bitch Face?

It’s getting hard to root for anyone in the cast on Real Housewives of Orange County. This season is lackluster. Nothing is really happening and everyone is really stuck in the past- something that Peggy Sulahian said that I actually agree with (for once). In real life it would make a lot of sense for these women to be upset with each other, but as far as keeping this show going, it’s tough to just watch them talk about the same shit over and over again.

And one person who is all about bringing up the past is self-proclaimed private investigator Meghan Edmonds. Was Meghan just being a good friend or was she just stirring shit up for the sake of a story line during that last episode?

Vicki

It’s been a grueling season of trench warfare on The Real Housewives Of Orange County, and Vicki Gunvalson thinks it’s time everyone just gets over themselves for the sake of moving forward. I couldn’t agree more! Even though Vicki still sees herself as the perpetual victim of everyone’s “false” accusations, she seems willing to lay aside her differences with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador for the good of the order.

Vicki also thinks Kelly Dodd is a loyal friend, even if Kelly is laying down her sword with Shannon. Vicki comments, “I was glad to see Shannon and Kelly attempting on making amends at the Irish drinking night. There has been so much back and forth backstabbing that it’s exhausting to witness and be a part of.”

Shannon wonders about Peggy's cancer

Even though Shannon Beador isn’t holding up that center orange in the Real Housewives of Orange County introduction, she really should be at this point. There is always something going on with Shannon. She is going through it this season – from the weight gain, to the marital strife, to her feuds with the other ladies, she has a lot to address week after week.

Shannon has issues with Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd (still) and she’s even getting into it with Lydia McLaughlin and Peggy Sulahian who she did not know before this season. Sure, she got along with Kelly for one episode, but that was short-lived… as expected.

Tamra Judge

Just like many Real Housewives before her, Tamra Judge is defying age. Thanks to her dedication to fitness and an on point face lift, Tamra is killing it as a fifty year old. So of course she had a lot to celebrate.

Tamra, her husband Eddie Judge, and some of their friends went to Carmel after flights to Cabo were cancelled. Tamra also continued the celebrations at home with her family and at work at her gym.

After weeks of stirring the pot, Lydia McLaughlin has taken a step back during the past couple episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County. Instead, Meghan King Edmonds stepped up to the plate, resurrecting old arguments and relaying information to Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge.

And it all came to head with an argument between Meghan and Kelly Dodd at drag queen bingo. Lydia was visibly uncomfortable at the event and that was before all the arguing went down. It was her first time around drag queens and there is no doubt that she will be asked about her discomfort at the reunion. When the arguing began, Lydia couldn’t take it anymore, even though she has been on this show before. Shouldn’t she know that there is always an argument at every group gathering? Apparently not.

Kelly & Meghan

What is going on with Meghan Edmonds this season on Real Housewives of Orange County? She is not letting anything go. Every time it seems like something is resolved, Meghan brings it back up again. She even went right from having lunch with Vicki Gunvalson to calling up Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador with a summary in the last episode. In short, she is really stirring it up. Or is she just being a good friend to Tamra and Shannon?

Part of me really appreciates that because there is nothing else going on this season and at least she’s actually interacting with every cast member instead of refusing to film with them…unlike some people. On the other hand, this is all unnecessary drama and straight up child’s play in comparison to the story lines of the past. Yes, Kelly Dodd took things to a hostile place (yet again) by mentioning Meghan’s baby during the last episode, but it can also be argued that Meghan was the bigger shit stirrer that episode.
