Real Housewives of Orange County

RHOC preview

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 stirs the pot tonight by showing a “secret video” to Lydia McLaughlin after she’s hurt by Kelly Dodd.

Peggy Sulahian Explains Why She Got A Double Mastectomy; Criticizes RHOC Cast Mates For Questioning Her

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.”

Tamra Judge

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.

Lydia McLaughlin

Despite this week’s drama filled episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Lydia McLaughlin is trying to find the positive in each situation.

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.”

Kelly Dodd Says Peggy Sulahian Pushed Her Hot Button: “It Took Me Over The Edge”

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.”

Peggy

Despite this being her first season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, newcomer Peggy Sulahian isn’t mincing words and trying to stay on everyone’s good side. She shared her thoughts on this week’s episode and bluntly explains that she feels Kelly Dodd is NOT happy for Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson to reunite. She also dishes on Shannon Beador‘s reaction to the events and slams the ladies for eating instead of rushing to Vicki’s hospital bedside.

Peggy tries to explain her manic behavior during the Vicki health crisis. “As Vicki was lying in bed sick, heart palpitating, in a sweat, and having difficulty breathing, all I wanted was for someone to come and help her. Just help her be better. I didn’t want to see her in distress. Clearly, I am not the calmest person in times of stress, but I will try and be there for you. My focus will be on making the person better. But I was very perplexed!”

Vicki & Tamra make up

Last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County episode was the equivalent of drunk sorority girls. Leave Iceland alone! Like seriously – go home ladies; you’re drunk! Especially Vicki Gunvalson. First she was dying, then she was drunk, then she was sobbing into Tamra Judge‘s hair… It’s the casserole that revived her! That and the attention frenzy in the wake of her ‘heart attack.’

Poor Vicki her love tank’s connected to her heart valve, her heart valve’s connected to that part of her brain that says ‘PAY ATTENTION TO ME! ME! ME! ME!” So she was vomiting and having heart palpitations while Peggy Sulahian and Kelly Dodd fought over who was better at caring for Vicki’s sputtering love tank.

Meghan Edmonds, Tamra Judge, & Shannon Beador at the RHOC Season 12 reunion

By now we all know that the Real Housewives Of Orange County season 12 reunion was a wild one! Shannon Beador shared the news that she and David have separated (finally), and I guarantee those ‘allegations‘ from Vicki Gunvalson will be brought up (Again. And Again. Cause this is Bravo’s version of Groundhog Day…).

Well, Shannon will have lots in common with other newly separated Housewife Kelly Dodd! Next season will be all about starting over and finding their sexy, I presume.
