Real Housewives of Orange County

Vicki Hears a Rumor about Tamra

Why is Season 12 of Real Housewives of Orange County just a rehashing of the same arguments from Season 11 which was all about discussing the drama from Season 10? Isn’t it time to move on and get some fresh story lines? Apparently no one on the show thinks so. Vicki Gunvalson’s knowledge of the cancer scam is still a hot topic of debate. These rumors about Eddie Judge’s sexuality are a constant topic of conversation.

Now, there is even more focus on the Eddie gossip after Tamra Judge’s ex best friend Ricky Santana and her nemesis Gretchen Rossi showed up to Vicki’s birthday party. This resurgence of old faces was both vindictive and desperate. It is far fetched to believe that the conversation happened at random. The bad acting indicates that someone (most likely multiple people) orchestrated the gossip about Eddie in advance. Obviously Vicki denies this. Beyond that she’s even denying that she invited Ricky to the event in the first place. Thankfully Ricky has come through with some receipts. Watch out, Vicki.

Tamra Judge

Well, Tamra Judge has tried and tried again to give Vicki Gunvalson the opportunity to do right, but once again that didn’t happen. Things were instead inflamed – again – when Vicki invited Tamra’s ex-bestie Ricky to her party to fuel speculation about Eddie’s sexuality. Tamra insists she’s definitely DONE! hearing Vicki’s lies.

Really? Cause this season of Real Housewives Of Orange County is only half over and then there is the reunion… “Come on! These lies are getting ridiculous,” Tamra protests. “I’m a girl that gets over things in five minutes and gives many chances, but it’s time for me to move on. I can’t listen to her lies anymore. She’s so toxic and delusional, I just couldn’t deal with it.”

Who would have ever thought that Kelly Dodd would be getting along with all of her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars except for Meghan Edmonds? Not only was last year a controversial first season for Kelly, but Meghan was the “friend” who brought her into the cast.

At this point the two of them are constantly coming at each other and scrutinizing every word that comes out of the other person’s mouth.

Last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County was a little rough for Shannon Beador. She took to her Bravo blog to explain her side of the craziness that went down with her co-stars. Shannon makes it quite clear that she will never get over Vicki Gunvalson‘s involvement with “a cancer scam” and has no warm feelings toward Lydia McLaughlin, either.

Shannon begins, “For the record, I would like to be clear, I do not try to control Tamra or tell her what to do. That is ridiculous.” Shannon claims she has told Tamra many times that she will support her no matter what she decides about her friendship with Vicki but that Tamra does NOT want to be suckered back into that toxic situation.

Tamra Judge

Unfortunately, Real Housewives of Orange County has become another show that has relied on “gay rumors” to be insulting and scandalous for the sake of a story line. This time it’s Vicki Gunvalson perpetuating rumors that Eddie Judge is “secretly gay” and not faithful to Tamra Judge.

So, it didn’t seem like a coincidence that Tamra’s enemy Gretchen Rossi and Tamra’s ex best friend Ricky showed up to Vicki’s birthday party and “just happen” to gossip about Eddie. It is very obvious that multiple people planned out that conversation ahead of time.

Last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County was like a community theater acting troupe doing a play about Real Housewives. The costumes were bad, the over-acting was worse, and no one was winning any Emmys, but damn if Tamra Judge wasn’t trying her hardest!

Can we just stop doing this whole Tamra and Vicki Gunvalson will be friends again thing? RHOC is trying so desperately to insist they both care, with all the fake tears and carrying on and hullabaloo over two women so emotionally divorced from each other they can’t even get angry convincingly. David Beador Lydia McLaughlin crawling on the stairs begging Shannon Beador to just. stop? Yep, that is my reaction to yet another episode of will they? Or won’t they? Can Tamicki ever be put back together again?

Meghan & Lydia

This story line with Meghan Edmonds and Kelly Dodd arguing over a text message conversation that happened months before  this Real Housewives of Orange County season started filming is dragging out for way too long. Unfortunately, there really isn’t much else happening at this point. Fortunately, the preview for the rest of the season looks pretty promising.

The fans have to wait and see how the rest of the episodes play out. While everyone is really waiting for Vicki Gunvalson to go at it with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador, we are stuck with this random argument with Meghan and Kelly.

If it wasn’t for the people who do the hair, makeup, and wardrobe styling, the Real Housewives that we love (and hate) would not be the same. So of course, the Housewives came together to celebrate the wedding for two of their go-to hair and makeup artists Julius Michaels and Arturo Ortiz.

There was a Real Housewives of Orange County and Real Housewives of New Jersey crossover since Tamra Judge, Melissa Gorga, and the newest Jersey housewife Margaret Josephs were all in attendance for the big day.
