Real Housewives of Orange County

Tamra Judge

Out of everyone in the Real Housewives franchise, it would make sense for Tamra Judge to be all about turning fifty. I mean look at her: she’s been hitting the gym hard and got the most on point face lift. She’s slaying fifty. Or at least that’s easy for me to say as an outsider who has never met her, yet has been strangely invested in her life over the years.

Tamra is just not ready for the big birthday, or at least that’s what she said. Just like the other Housewives before her, I’m sure she will go all out with the celebrations.

Vicki Gunvalson son in law Ryan Culberson Marine Corps

Even though Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter Briana Culberson has become an honorary cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County at this point, the fans haven’t seen too much of her husband Ryan Culberson because he has been away with the Marine Corps. Now he is back and ready for some time with the fam.

After a tough start with Briana and Ryan getting married out of nowhere, Vicki getting upset that the family temporarily left Orange County for Oklahoma, and that random disagreement with Lydia McLaughlin’s mom, Vicki has grown to love her son-in-law and she seems to pretty pumped that he is back.

Peggy Grabs Meghan's Lips

After Peggy Sulahian pinched Meghan Edmonds‘ lips and acted like it wasn’t at all offensive, it’s pretty reasonable for Meghan to not be a fan of hers. Who actually does that? Especially the very first time they’ve interacted.

None of Peggy’s “jokes” seem to make any sense. To put it mildly, she doesn’t really seem to be the best fit for Real Housewives of Orange County. To put it honestly, she should have never been cast for this show. One person who definitely agrees with that sentiment is Meghan. That’s for sure.

Does Peggy have Resting Bitch Face?

Peggy Sulahian is defending herself this week, explaining everything from her cancer diagnosis to her thoughts on the secrets of happy and long-lasting marriage. She also weighs in on her Real Housewives of Orange County co-star, Tamra Judge, and her long-lasting conflict with Vicki Gunvalson.

Peggy didn’t appreciate Tamra‘s “selectively reiterated” version of events to Eddie. She says Tamra made her look like the bad guy, but the whole thing isn’t worth her time. “My intention was to smoothen out the rocky patch between Vicki and Tamra, but I now understand that it’s not worth for me to involve myself.” She says that she was only trying to help and shouldn’t be bashed for that.

Meghan St. Patty's Day Makeup

Now that she’s actually back in the mix with (some of) the ladies of The Real Housewives Of Orange County, Meghan Edmonds has a front row seat to the shifting alliances and drama that are plaguing this group. But this week offered up a surprising moment between Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd, which Meghan admits she was shocked to witness.

Before discussing that St. Patrick’s Day miracle, Meghan celebrates the idea of throwing herself back into the modeling world, even if it is somewhat of a pipe dream. She jokes, “It’s fun to (pretend to) be a model sometimes and for me, it’s so important for my mental health to work and play outside the home.”

Kelly and Shannon reconnect

Kelly Dodd has found herself between a rock and a hard place. That rock is Vicki Gunvalson, her old pal; and the hard place is Shannon Beador, the enemy she’s now bonded with. I mean Kelly saved Shannon from Stockholm Syndrome at the hands of Tamra Judge.

After dedicating her blog to the people of Houston, Kelly launches right into breaking down the Real Housewives Of Orange County drama. One such gem is Kelly’s observation that, “If Peggy has resting bitch face, then Tamra definitely has chronic bitch mouth.” True! “I didn’t understand why Tamra said she wanted to give Peggy a second chance,” continues Kelly, “then insults her by saying she has a ‘resting bitch face’?” 

Real Housewives Awards

Bravo is bringing back the Real Housewives Awards for the fourth year in a row. This time, the ladies from across the franchise will compete for fans’ votes in various categories within the back-to-school theme.

Fortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which is nice. Unfortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which means that many of the nominations do not make sense. Nevertheless, the fandom will (hopefully) make the right decisions. Either way you slice it, nominating every housewife is a good way to ensure that a lot of them show up when the awards are handed out. So at least that’s good.

Tamra Judge works things out with Peggy Sulahian

This week Tamra Judge tackled a Spartan Race and Peggy Sulahian‘s resting bitch face, but she can’t tackle her woes with Vicki Gunvalson! Will anyone be able to put TamIcki back together again?!

Eddie is always the voice of reason and that’s one reason why I love him so much,” Tamra shares. “Even though sometimes I just want to vent, he’s 100% right I should not care what Peggy was saying or let Vicki affect me. I’m trying, I promise!”

After the encouragement (re: advice that falls on deaf ears) Eddie provides her, Tamra decided not to be ‘A Shannon‘ by doing a Spartan Race to support Eddie. It was a death-defying life threatening experience for the Real Housewives Of Orange County star, so naturally Tamra roped her favorite pot-stirrer Lydia McLaughlin into doing it too! Unfortunately she couldn’t convince Shannon to be there for David.
