Lydia McLaughlin Excited For Trip; Cast Heads To Iceland On RHOC This Week!

Our deepest apologies to the people of Iceland for whatever epic disaster ensued when The Real Housewives Of Orange County descended upon their fair country. For viewers at home, the trip is just beginning though! And Lydia McLaughlin is pretending to be excited about the adventures awaiting them. She’s also making sure to plug her magazine a whole lot, as it’s the impetus for the trip (in theory).

Lydia gushes, “This week’s episode we gear up for Iceland! We get offered a lot of press trips because of NOBLEMAN Magazine, so when we were offered a trip to Iceland we had to make it happen. I have heard so much about Iceland and seen so many great photos. Doug was too busy with our upcoming deadline so I was excited to go represent for NOBLEMAN. We figured if we like it, we could send a writer and photographer and do a big feature for NOBLEMAN.” Hey, you guys – did you catch the name of Lydia and Doug’s magazine? It’s NOBLEMAN!!!

LeeAnne Locken is coming for Cary Deuber, even though no one sent for her! And with The Real Housewives Of Dallas finale just around the corner, Cary is in full damage control mode about the allegations Brandi Redmond and LeeAnne are making about her husband, Mark. Cary defends her role as the “babysitter” for Mark’s children with his ex-wife, as well as accusations that she and Mark had an affair before divorced from their former spouses.

Cary describes telling Mark about LeeAnne gossiping about his, um, alleged social activities at The Roundup – and her own gossip about LeeAnne’s fiance, Rich. “I was dreading telling Mark about the negative things that were said about him and Rich — both of them. I was disappointed in myself for sinking to LeeAnne’s level to take a swing at a spouse; while I was ashamed to admit to Mark what I said, I was relieved to have it off my chest with the group and with Mark. What stung even worse, though, was having to tell my husband that the same hateful rumors about him were STILL being spread by the same Two-Faced Texan who had promised to turn over a new leaf last year.”

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Let Them Eat Cake

Nobody puts Siggy Flicker in a corner, according to Siggy Flicker. The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star takes particular offense to Margaret Josephs trying to shut her down, especially because it was Siggy who “brought her in.” Jeesh – we’re only weeks into RHONJ, and alliances are already crumbling under the ladies’ feet like rickety boardwalk planks! Siggy breaks down her feelings on most of the group – except Dolores Catania – turning on her in Boca, and why she cannot be silenced.

Siggy complains, “Less than 48 hours after introducing Margaret to our group, I am being told how I should feel and what I can’t say. Margaret can’t pass up an opportunity to add fuel to the fire and cause division among my friends.” This “fire” was started by Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice getting into a food fight, which resulted in Siggy’s $1,000 custom-ordered cake being tossed on to the sidewalk.

Despite her issues with Siggy Flicker lately, Teresa Giudice claims she still has nothing but love, love, love! for the self-proclaimed “most talented person in the world.” The Real Housewives Of New York star also regrets that Siggy and Dolores Catania didn’t take part in the flower ceremony Margaret Josephs arranged for the ladies to pay tribute to lost love ones. Whether they were excluded on purpose or not remains murky, however.

Teresa doesn’t think Siggy’s dramatics over the cake throwing incident were warranted, but she really got her drawers in a twist over Siggy calling Melissa Gorga and her “animals.”  She explains, “This episode started out with the aftermath of ‘Cake-Gate.’ I really wasn’t happy watching as Siggy called Melissa and I ‘animals.’ Just like Siggy thought us throwing the cake was in poor taste, I thought what she said about us was also in poor taste.”

When Siggy Flicker told us last year that some people think she’s “too much,” she was minimizing reality! Because The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star came out swinging, shouting, and fighting right away in the premiere episode of Season 8. Siggy has no regrets about her behavior, though, instead concentrating on how others in the group are upsetting the apple cart – namely Danielle Staub and Margaret Josephs, who Siggy seems already pitted against.

In her blog, Siggy describes Margaret as two-faced and Danielle as a “dark” presence within the group. She also reiterates her disgust with Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice throwing the custom cake she ordered for Melissa’s birthday, which turns into an even bigger drama this week!

Vicki

Vague health scares and extremely questionable diagnoses seem to eternally plague Vicki Gunvalson, but when it comes to her daughter, Briana Culberson, the diagnosis is real. Last year, The Real Housewives Of Orange County star revealed that Briana had been diagnosed with Lupus, a chronic auto-immune disease that can target and damage any part of the body.

Briana hasn’t discussed Lupus or her symptoms much on this season of RHOC, but Vicki shares that it’s been a tough ride for her. “Lupus has affected part of her heart, it’s literally something every other week,” says Vicki, adding that Briana’s immune system has been compromised as a result of the disease as well, which opens her up to viruses.
