Last night's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was pretty boring. And by boring I mean tragic. And deafening. Gretchen Rossi tried to sing but she forgot to bring the big, pink plastic handbag holding her autotune with her. Oh the results were more tragic than a Made in Sweatshop plasticine Gretchen Christine handbag. Also plastic her face and now her lips. We'll discuss in a minute…
Moving on to other adventures in RHOC things, are still a mess betweenVicki Gunvalson and Brooks. And by a mess I mean Vicki's life and hair are sadly reflecting her inner life. Get a brush and comb things out. Seriously – get a smoothing serum too. And call Dr. V.
So let's begin… Gretchen has returned from Whistler and her friendship with Tamra Barney is as frozen and icy as her face. Did I mention her hair doesn't move either but it permanently looks wind swept? How? Mystery of science if I've ever seen one. Let's call Myth Busters!
Tamra Barney (the reality star now known as Tamra Judge) stopped by the clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live and while she was hanging out she cleared up the Malibu Country misunderstandings, talked about having babies with Eddie Judge and more.
Andy started the show off rolling some of the tape from Gretchen Rossi's lunch with Alexis and asked Tamra if Gretchen has been overdoing the Botox because her face was so frozen. Tamra added, "It was like no emotion at all and this used to be her best friend. I kinda felt bad for Alexis."
They dove right in to address the Malibu Country role (again!) Tamra attempted to clear it up. "I think the whole story wasn't told. I think that Gretchen did get a call for a part that was not the part that Heather got, clearly. And I think there were some Beverly Hills housewives, Alexis was called. It was a role as an extra. So what happened was as soon as Heather got a main role, that extra role was canceled. But the thing is is that Gretchen kept up with "I got the role, I got the role" when there was no role to get. The role got shut down. Heather shut it down. So then Gretchen lied about it and said she got it."
On a recent episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge revealed a painful secret. While going through her divorce to high school sweetheart Darren Vieth, she tried to overdose on pills and Nyquil. Tamra's admission served to explain why she's so closed off and good at deflecting with her over-the-top antics. After the episode aired, her ex (father of her oldest son Ryan) is coming forward with accusations of cheating and theatrics. It looks like someone is ready to cash in their fifteen minutes! To be honest, I'm actually surprised we haven't heard from this dude sooner.
Of course, Tamra isn't one to sit by silently when someone is spreading rumors about her, so she's fighting back the way all good Bravo housewives do. That's right! She's calling him out on Twitter. I have a feeling that Darren is going to be no match for Tamra!
In an interview with Radar Online, Tamra's (first) ex-husband is speaking out over Tamra's accusations that he is partly to blame for what drove her to her first suicide attempt. Just like Tamra, Darren has a sharp tongue and doesn't hold back, so I can see where the pair possibly butted heads during their young union. He tells the site, “Tamra is a liar, a cheater and a bad mother to our son, Ryan, and she seemed to enjoy constant drama in her life because it lead to attention,” adding, “Tamra usually never tells the entire story, and this time is no different.” Wait, what? Tamra enjoys drama?
Gretchen Rossi, come on down! You are the next victim contestant on "this is your fashion flashback".
The Real Housewives of Orange County star freely admits to her love of costumes and our dear Gretchen never shies away from taking a fashion risk, that's for sure. We've gathered up a few highlights from Gretchen's past, starting back in her first season of RHOC.
Take a look at our gallery below and tell us which outfits (if any) you love and share the one that makes you laugh your ass off.
So, Tamra Barney, who has been peddling the redemption storyline this season, was trying to convince us that she and Gretchen had really moved past seasons worth of hatred. But alas when the two got started with wedding wars, all hell broke loose!
The story goes that Gretchen and Slave Smiley were supposed to get engaged last season on TV and get a wedding spinoff/storyline. But Slave screwed up with all his child support woes and bad behavior that made fans detest him so Bravo conspired behind their backs and pawned the engagement storyline off on Tamra.
A few weeks agoBrooks Ayers tried to seek some attention and con Vicki Gunvalson back into loving him by spilling deets of their break-up on twitter. Vicki never actually confirmed or denied the relationship ending… until now!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star admits that her "love tank is empty" once again! “I‘m single now," Vickireveals to RadarOnline. "We have decided to remain friends but we have decided to move on and date other people.”
Perhaps Vicki's decision to end things with Brooks came after her business partner planned to sue her over one of Brooks' grifting schemes! “We came to the realization that it was harder to stay together than it was to be apart,” VIcki says of their relationship ending.
