The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 premiere reminded us all that it’s Vicki Gunvalson’s world and we’re all just living in it. Everything on this show revolves around Vicki. Shannon Beador even had the nerve to blame Vicki for her weight gain, which is absurd. Needless to say, it looks like this season will be a battle of Vicki and Kelly Dodd vs. Shannon and Tamra Judge.

The first episode was full of shit talking, and of course everyone is trying to get the fandom on their side with their Bravo blog posts.

Last night was a big night for Bravo viewers. Real Housewives of Orange County returned for its twelfth season and part one of the Southern Charm reunion aired. That’s why it made so much sense for Tamra Judge and Shep Rose to stop by the Watch What Happens Live clubhouse to talk with Andy Cohen.

Of course that included Tamra throwing shade at Vicki Gunvalson and Shep showcasing his extensive vocabulary.

The Real Housewives of Orange County - Season 12

Washing up on the shores of the California beaches, amid the shells and driftwood, is the rubble of last season’s Real Housewives Of Orange County. Littering the sands with shards of shattered friendships, filthy accusations, and broken down dignities; a bent halo, some empty vodka and champs bottles, and Shannon Beador‘s former self, now soaked and waterlogged by the hours of tears she’s spilled over the terrible lies Vicki Gunvalson told. The fate of the world, and the Orange County coastline — along with the safety and health of Briana’s children – all rests in Vicki’s handbag! Thankfully she’s not crazy or anything…

So the taglines: let’s start there. What makes Tamra Judge “highly prized”? Or was she just proud of herself for coming up with a rhyme. Hook’d on Phonics worked for her! Vicki’s tagline informs us that she’s not going home, but what she means is that this show is her home, and you are not going to drop any interloping houses on her head! She clicked her ruby slippers together three times and dragged Briana from the land of tornadoes to get here.

Tonight Real Housewives Of Orange County returns for it’s 12th season! Yes, that means we’ve thus-far survived 11 seasons of Vicki Gunvalson and her ever-shifting truth.

So, before we get into the all-new drama, let’s take a trip down memory lane to relive all the craziness from season 11. Maybe a tequila will help refresh things?! And season 11 was full of crashes and burns (literally), boozes and burns (literally), and plenty of rides from hell.

The season opened with Vicki all by herself, and seeking absolution after lying – in some capacity – about what she knew about Brooks Ayers‘ phony cancer scheme. Obviously no one wants to forgive Vicki because it doesn’t seem possible that she totally didn’t realize he was faking a terminal illness for money and attention.

WOO HOO! Real Housewives Of Orange County returns next week and I am peeing my pants Vicki Gunvalson-style with excitement. And as a little sneak peak of what’s to come, Bravo revealed the season 12 taglines for the enormous cast of ladies!

Tamra Judge, who as you know has snatched Alexis Bellino‘s fake halo crown to re-brand herself as Jesus Barbie, of course makes reference to how blessed she is, and Shannon Beador continues to spew some some lemon-filled karma tidbits. You can read the taglines below.

Kelly Dodd Fight Stranger Fourth of July

Whether you’re a Kelly Dodd friend or foe, almost everyone can agree that she’s not someone who should be messed with. She has no qualms about standing up for herself in any situation so it’s not at all surprising that she held her own when a random guy got physical and tried to steal from her while she was trying to celebrate Fourth of July.

Clearly, this fool does not watch Real Housewives of Orange County, as he had no idea that Kelly was such a formidable opponent.

Alexis Bellino & Family In Colorado

It’s time for the annual Alexis Bellino family vacation – complete with smiling photos, family fun, itty-bitty outfits, and Jimplant. Oh… actually, no Jim Bellino.

Alexis, her kiddos, and it looks like several family members (including her mom) headed to Colorado for the yearly #BellinoFamilyVacation, however the former Real Housewives Of Orange County star’s husband must have stayed behind in Cali to run their trampoline empire. Or else Jim is always the photographer, never the model.

The Real Housewives Of Orange County is returning to our TV screens on July 10th, and Tamra Judge says it’s a very different season than we’ve ever witnessed before. Unsurprisingly, the drama between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra continues, with Tamra indicating that there’s not a lot of resolution in sight. But boomerang cast member Lydia McLaughlin lands back on the scene to try to broker peace among the fractured group (HA! She’ll need extra glitter for that trick.)

In a recent interview, Tamra admits that she’s still not on good terms with Vicki and Kelly Dodd, and she didn’t really get to know newcomer Peggy Sulahian as well as she could have. She shares that “it’s such a different season this year. The cast was a little bit split almost three quarters of the way through filming. I don’t know what Kelly and Vicki did most of the time because I was filming much more with Meghan [Edmonds] and Shannon [Beador]. Peggy is the new girl and I didn’t film with her all that much either.”
