After surviving (just barely) her first reunion, Lydia admits she isn't proud of her behavior and she isn't sure this environment of "constant attacks and debating" is for her! She also explains why her magazine chose not to feature Heather Dubrow on the cover, but she does offer Heather an apology for being snarky. Apparently the two are still friends… for now!
"So that wasn't fun! The ladies tried to warn me that my my first reunion would be intense, which is an understatement! I don't think you could ever be mentally prepared for a day like that," Lydia begins in her Bravo blog.
VH1 continued to dominate Monday night withT.I. and Tiny (3.707 million) and Marrying the Game (2.994 million). Consider us impressed!
On Bravo, part one (of three!) of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion garnered 2.128 million viewers, which is down from last week's season high of 2.386 million. Will you tune in next week to see Gretchen, Heather, Alexis, Vicki, Tamra, and Lydia hash out more of 2009's season 8's drama?
It appears that all isn't well in Vodkaville, and Real Housewives of Orange County'sVicki Gunvalson could be back on the receiving end of a law suit claiming fraud and breach of contract. The case, which was previously dismissed, is reportedly about to be re-filed by Vicki's former partner in Vodkas by Vicki, Robert Williamson, III. In it, major allegations are waged against the reality star and her off-again-on-again (off-again) beau Brooks Ayers.
Of course, it doesn't help matters that the relationship status between Vicki and Broke Brooks has gone from lukewarm to non-existent to down right contentious, at least those are the rumors! If this is the end of Vicki's vodkas, however are we going to get to taste Slade's bacon variety?
Tamra Barney never seems to come up smelling like roses. Namely because she's the one who usually causes all the problems.
On last night's first installment of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion Tamra again accused Gretchen Rossi of cheating on her former fiance. Since no one cares anymore, Tamra got defensive on Facebook and admitted that perhaps it wasn't the best idea to relive seasons worth of fighting all over again.
Alright let's dive into this whole Real Housewives of Orange County reunion thing! We've got Memory Lapse Monday happening here because Tamra Barney is confusing this season's storyline with one from two years ago. Did her shock therapy malfunction? Yeppers, Gretchen Rossi is back in the hotseat for cheating on her deceased fiancé Jeff with another man. Nevermind that NO ONE CARES CAUSE WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS FOR FOUR YEARS, we're rehashing it aaaagain.
So with that out of the way let's talk outfits. Gretchen is clearly bringing her little portable Barbie closet she had from childhood to the designer for Alexis Couture and asking for direct reproductions. All of her little girl dreams of sparkles, flounces, and seafoam fantasies are being brought to life. Seriously Gretchen is reliving my youth with that aquamarine number. I especially loved how she matched the side-weave to the one-sleeve.
Heather Dubrow's hair needs a deep conditioner and a good cut. Even though I'm sure Princess Champs On Ice probably pays $300 for a haircut, it looks like Gretchen played Barbies with Heather's head. Since Heather is the brown-hair Barbie friend Gretchen practiced "beauty school" with her locks. Result: fail.
Ryan Culberson is feeling the unfortunate side-effects of reality TV and 15 minutes of fame. You have no secrets anymore, honey! Just ask your mother-in-law Vicki Gunvalson. #ToothlessGreekAffair #Threeway #CheatingWithBrokesAyers #PissyGunderpants
On the season finale Ryan got loud and abrasive with Lydia McLaughlin's 64-year-old mom Judy when she was *gasp* resting her feet on Vicki's brand. new. sofa. Ryan flew into an appetite for destruction rage and cussed her out.
Days after Ryan Culberson was seen screaming obscenities at Lydia McLaughlin's elderly mother Judy, he's now defending his behavior and claiming Bravo edited it to make him look like the bad guy. So, no apologies from him!
“There was so much more … that led up to that incident which they fail to include to make me look like the crazy Marine,” Briana Culberson's husband told the Marine Corps Times. “It definitely was a crazy night and I cannot get over how the producers edited it.”
It's time for the weekly Monday and Tuesday night ratings round up!
Once againLove & Hip Hop Atlanta dominated Monday night! 4.192 million people tuned in, which means once again the show's ratings are rising. Next week features more reunion and with news that Stevie J and Joseline are indeed going through with this whole wedding thing, I'm thinking this smells… spinoff!
Real Housewives of Orange County had its season finale this week. Featuring mama drama and Slade problems amid a wonderland of faux-snow, the ladies went out with a bang pulling in 2.386 million viewers – a big jump from last week. Next week is the reunion and the previews look, well, they look dreadfully brutal.
