I never thought I would mention Vicki Gunvalson and Ramona Singer in the same sentence, yet here I am. No, there isn’t some sort of Housewives crossover happening,- although that would really be the dream. The two were both on a panel at Mohegan Sun’s anniversary party, so of course they were asked a million questions and it always comes back to the boy drama for these shows. Naturally, they both dished on being single after the very public demise of their previous relationships.
It seems like Ramona came out stronger than ever after her divorce from Mario Singer who she found out was cheating on her in the press. On the flip side, Vicki is still reeling from her relationship with Brooks Ayers and the cancer scam even though she already has a new boyfriend. Nevertheless, they both know what it’s like to have their love lives in the Real Housewives spotlight.
Last night’s Real Housewives of Orange County episode was a horribly edited mess, to say the least. It was choppy and you can tell we missed a LOT of what really happened. Thankfully Heather Dubrow videoed some of it or we would’ve only heard the many different versions of the story later.
Tamra Judge took to her blog to try to expand on a few of the situations and give her side of things. In her blog she blasts Kelly Dodd for her crazy behavior, claims that classless booby flasher Vicki Gunvalson loves to throw people under the bus, stands firm in her innocence regarding attempts to get Kelly wasted, and so much more.
Listening to Vicki talk about how her life was affected by cancer and how she really believed Brooks Ayers actually had cancer was tough to watch and aside from that it was obviously a poor PR move after all the negative press she had last year. I also did not understand the charity at all, but now it has been shut down (at least the website) and Vicki is doing what she can to backpedal and distance herself after hyping it up and starring in that awkward commercial.
While I was super sad that Lauri Peterson left Real Housewives of Orange County to help her son Josh Waring with his many troubles, I can’t blame her for prioritizing her family. It also makes me wonder why other Housewives didn’t make the same choice, but that’s a whole can of worms to open.
Sadly, for Lauri and her family, Josh’s drama has not subsided at all. He was recently accused of shooting someone and now the alleged victim is suing him. That is some serious trouble, especially for someone who’s been struggling to get on the straight and narrow path for many years. This is tough situation for everyone involved and their families.
What a strange episode! So Kelly Dodd is a rampant liability who needs to be exposed, so suddenly the ladies are all BFF with Vicki again. Yes, even Shannon. Tequila Shots became the Trojan Horse of RHOC last night, and it was well, awful.
These women know Vicki’s love tank, all cylinders of it, are running on “E” and her yearning to be their friend is so palpable you could drink it in a shot glass. Yet, who is Kelly’s only conceivable ally on RHOC? Vicki – the other ostracized one. And how do you get Kelly defenseless when she’s indefensible? Capture Vicki, leaving her bogged down in the conflict between what is right and what is right for her right now.
Last week we had drunken fits, nasty words exchanged, Tamra Judge hyper-ventilating, and the ladies getting kicked out of a high end store. This week we have more of the same, with some cow milking mixed in.
“I think because I’m now so well-known for being ‘me’ that it’s just an odd thing,” Heather explained. “And the kinds of things they call me about are to either be myself – which I don’t wanna do – or kind of a ‘stereotypical of my character as it’s perceived on the show’ role.”
