Whenever the Real Housewives of Orange County travel it’s an elephantine-sized disaster. And this time they came into contact with actual elephants. I’m pretty sure subjecting an elephant to Vicki Gunvalson‘s screaming constitutes animal abuse. Last night they all traveled to Bali for some spiritual awakening, reincarnated relationships, and bonding – at least that was on the trip prospectus.
Bali is being terrorized by California ladies with 25 pieces of designer baggage and enough anxiety drugs (they’re holistic!!) to tranquilize an elephant. The real purpose of this trip is for us to get different scenery while they haggle and rehash over the same dang arguments. Vicki has a conniption fit because she thinks all the calming auras in Indonesia will interfere with the WiFi signal so she won’t be able to WORK! WORK! WORK! More time to FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! (or in Vicki’s case get motion sickness and puke in Tamra Judge‘s lap in the back of a van).
After 30 hours on a plane everyone, including that silent one Danielle Gregorio, arrives. She is now called “Dumb” as in 1/2 of the Vicki-dubbed Dumb & Dumber. She was wearing a molting Muppet costume on the plane. I seriously wonder what happened with this one. Why is she the RHOC ghost? I feel like a Sc0oby Doo montage starring Shannon Beador‘s mystery door needs to breakout!
Heather Dubrow thinks she’s perfect. Imagine her surprise when others don’t agree with her self-assessment. In this case one of her main detractors is friend Vicki Gunvalson and Heather is shocked and appalled that Vicki is questioning her behavior this season.
“I love Vicki and we have always had a very good relationship. However, I’m pretty tired of the nasty interview bites thrown in my direction,” Heather complains.
One of the Real Housewives of Orange County star’s main complaints is that Vicki has taken new friend Shannon Beador‘s side after Heather failed to display any sympathy for Shannon’s situation. Furthermore, even if Heather has behaved appallingly, Vicki is her friend first right. And, lest we forget: Heather got yelled at by Shannon! Therefore all of the misdeeds this season are not at all her fault. I mean she’s right – most of them are Tamra Judge‘s fault!
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta saw a dip in viewership on Monday night, with 3.435 million watching Mimi struggle, but VH1’s ratings powerhouse still won the night. The random Thursday night episode did not fare well, however, with only 2.158 million tuning in. But guess what… it still won the night!
WhooHoo!!! Vicki Gunvalson has written another book, or co-written, or contributed. Not sure which, but regardless, there is a new book out with Vicki’s picture on the cover. The Real Housewives of Orange County star seems to have kept this book under wraps, or perhaps I missed the press release, but when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live! Monday night, she was definitely there to promote her second book.
Let’s Talk Money: Women’s Guide to a Lifetime of Wealthwas co-written with best-selling author, Dennis M. Postima and, according to Amazon, the book is “Filled with conservative, straight-forward information and ideas, “Let’s Talk Money” allows women the opportunity to beat the odds and create a retirement income that lasts—for life”.
After a tabloid story emerged claiming Tamra Judge and Eddie Judge are headed for divorce, Tamra lashed out on Facebook, denying marital troubles and accusing another cast member of making up the story. She previously accused Bravo of deleting and editing her RHOC blog about this week’s episode! Say huh.
“Eddie has been asked to attend the reunion show every year for the past 4 years and he ALWAYS says ‘NO Thank You,'” Tamra wrote. “Its just not his thing….. another reason why I love you so much baby, you can give two s–ts about TV life.” Then why do a spinoff?!
Things begin with Tamra Barney telling Vicki Gunvalson about Ryan’s surprise engagement. Vicki understands given that Briana surprised eloped last season. If your children are always hiding something from you that’s probably a sign that they think you’re crazy.
However, quickly talk turns to TheShannon BeadorDilemna. Vicki is straight to the point with Tamra that she started causing all this drama and now is stepping back like ‘Don’t look at me! I didn’t do it!’ – and that Heather Dubrow is also being an instigator. Vicki thinks Heather needs to be knocked down a a notch or two to understand empathy. I am loving this equanimous Vicki. More of this please! Less of that rat’s nest on her head that she calls hair, however!
Tamra Judge was fired up last night after the airing of the current episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. The reality star took to her Facebook page to vent her frustrations because she felt Bravo would like edit that part of her blog on the network’s website.
She started off by throwing a dig Bravo’s way, “I submitted my BRAVO blog, but here are a few facts that I am sure Bravo will take out of my blog when they post it.”
Tamra then took aim at the producers, claiming they asked her to wait til the last minute to tell Lizzie Rovsek she couldn’t make the birthday celebration. “1. production knew my daughter was sick and I could not make it to Lizzie’s birthday party. They asked me to wait until the cameras were up in the limo to let Lizzie know. then they had her call me and say ‘how rude that you didn’t call me’.”
