After her strange video “footage” and behavior in Iceland, Peggy Sulahian is trying in vain to dig herself out of a pretty deep hole in her blog this week.
The Real Housewives Of Orange County newcomer still doesn’t seem to understand the basic tenets of the show she’s on though – namely, that (sometimes) you need to out-yell the women around you to make your point! Peggy can’t even seem to explain herself clearly, however. And it’s doing her no favors.
Kelly jokes, “When Peggy made her grand entrance in Lydia [McLaughlin’s] room before dinner, I couldn’t help but laugh. Her shirt says ‘WHATEVER’ but her face screams ‘HIGH MAINTENANCE.’ She lets Lydia know right off the bat that she’s cold, she’s starving, she’s tired…and Lydia, being the gracious host she is, scrambles to make sure Peggy is comfortable. It’s like watching Smithers and Mr. Burns on The Simpsons. And just like Monty Burns, Peggy is ready to release the hounds.”
Peggy Sulahian is just kind of just the worst, isn’t she? Maybe she’s a nice person, and she seemed OK at her Armenian anniversary party, but as soon as you take the Diko away from Peggy she turns into a judgmental, overbearing, clueless buzzkill intent to smother the fun out of any party with her nonsensical ramblings. Even a Viking send-off. I don’t want to be mean, but perhaps Bravo needs to issue ‘Funness’ qualifying exams.
There were men in fair isle sweaters serenading the ladies, then fighting over the amorphous blondes (Shannon Beador is convinced it’s her because Vikings “like a girl with a lil meat on her bones,” but would Shannon really touch whale blubber? I feel like it’s not very holistic…). But anyway, there were men doing all this for all of them, and in the middle of it all Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson were hugging and kissing like it was 2010, and Vicki even apologized to Shannon – more on that in a bit – then in walked Peggy, wearing a blood red caftan, and out for blood! She ruined the whole thing. Again.
Are you ready for a new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County? Tonight the ladies are still in Iceland and we aren’t even close to finished with the drama, arguments and embarrassing behavior in a foreign land.
Peggy Sulahian’s decision to undergo a double mastectomy this past year has stirred up constant questions among the cast of The Real Housewives Of Orange County. Shannon Beador accused Peggy of telling two different stories regarding whether she actually had cancer or not, and just about everyone else was left even more confused when Peggy (and Diko) attempted to explain the specific circumstances surrounding her cancer status.
Peggy wants to set the record straight now, and she also wants her cast mates to back off. Regarding cancer, Peggy says, “I did have it. So when you’re questioning it, you’re still not understanding what I’m telling you.” She further describes the questioning she experienced as more of an “interrogation.”
This Real Housewives of Orange County season got blown out of the water by the Dallas Housewives which airs right after it on Monday nights. At this point, no one would be shocked if Bravo switched things up and Dallas was the lead-in show for Orange County instead. That’s how abysmal and boring this season is. Even so, the drama picked up in Iceland.
Plus Vicki Gunvalson was actually getting along with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador (for the most part) on the trip. Pigs must have been flying in Iceland. No one saw this one coming. Plus it gave all of us hope for the rest of this season and even next season. Don’t hold on to that thought though. Tamra is very adamant that the peace we witnessed in Iceland remained in Iceland.
She shares in her new blog why she chose to pray out in the hallway during Vicki Gunvalson‘s health crisis. “It is never fun seeing people you love sick, and seeing Vicki getting rushed off to the hospital was traumatic. I walked out of my room to meet the girls for dinner, and I saw an ambulance and police cars, and I was shocked. I rushed up to the girls’ rooms and couldn’t believe everything that was happening. Peggy was so stressed out and looked so worried and it made me super nervous. When things feel out of my control, I pray. It gives me peace and centers me. I know some of the girls are believers, and I just felt Vicki needed prayers in that situation. We were not allowed into Vicki’s room and I had no idea what was going on with her. Prayers were the only thing I could offer to try and support her in that situation.”
This week’s Real Housewives Of Orange County injected some much-needed (albeit insane) energy into a season that’s limped along at a snail’s pace. Kelly Dodd shares her thoughts on Vicki Gunvalson’s medical emergency, the ladies’ all-night argument in Shannon Beador’s hotel room, and why Peggy Sulahian finally pushed her over the edge. Kelly jokes, “The sun never sets in Iceland, and neither do we! If it seems like the longest day ever, it was. That’s what being in Iceland is like!”
When Vicki started experiencing symptoms of what she thought was a heart attack, Kelly says she knew it was probably just anxiety. She explains, “I knew right away that Vicki was having an anxiety attack. She was exhausted, and I think she was scared to go to dinner, because sometimes going to those dinners can be like entering the lion’s den. I like Peggy. I think she’s a good person, and I know that her intentions are good, but she really gets on my nerves. I have a ‘hot’ button, and that button gets pushed when somebody tries to tell me what to do. That is what Peggy does to me over, and over, and over again. I finally lost my patience with her.”
