After an enormous falling out on last season’s Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge are not sharing the intimate details of their private lives with one another anymore (although they don’t mind sharing them with millions of viewers!). But Tamra is now telling OK! Magazine that she knew more juicy details about Shannon’s probably doomed marriage than any of her castmates, including the fact that David was having an affair, as far back as last year! Tamra explains, “Last year I touched on issues that were being brought up with them. I knew about this last year. I knew that David was having an affair last year.” (Did she mention “last year” enough times yet? Yes, we got it!)
So, what’s the reason Shannon kept quiet back then, but is going public with the affair now? Tamra reasons, “I think too many people knew about it and she was worried that it was going to come out.” Quick to offer fake kudos to her castmate, Tamra offers, “I think that it’s great of her and scary at the same time for her to share that with everybody,” adding, “She could’ve easily brushed it under the rug and said, ‘Oh it’s a lie.’ But the truth of the matter is it’s very real.”
Last week Dorinda took the group to her Berkshires home, where it was anything but peaceful and relaxing. With all the non-stop drama, Dorinda nearly lost it. Good thing she had copious amounts of champagne!
“Of course, I knew what I might be getting myself into by inviting the girls over for a birthday dinner. This weekend was going to be a juggling act: relaxation meets possible obliteration,” Dorinda admits. “I mean, after my first birthday dinner at Petrossian, where I had a front-row seat to my own crucifixion, I was almost relieved to know my next potential slow death would happen on my own turf.”
Meghan, who is married to former MLB player Jim Edmonds, revealed they joined the show to tell their “really unique story” – of being the much-younger third wife of a former pro-athlete in a midlife crisis? of being the “hashtag cool stepmom!”
“I don’t know a lot of people who are young stepmoms. It could feel really isolating,” Meghan shares. “I want others to see that this happens and it doesn’t have to be a secret. And not only that, we have a lot of things happening in our lives.” Whoa – deep.
Last night’s premiere of the Real Housewives of Orange County set kind of a heavy, gloomy tone for Season 10. And Shannon Beador’s marriage woes – including husband David’s infidelity since last year – is partly to blame for that. In her Bravo blog, Shannon tell us why she and David decided to reveal the most intimate moments of their marriage, including couples’ therapy to work through her hurt feelings about David’s affair, on reality tv.
Shannon explains, “I really don’t know where to start. I suppose the first thing I should address is why my husband and I have chosen to show such personal and private information on television. The decision was not an easy one. But after much counseling and discussions with our children, we thought that we would tell our story with the hope that other couples who have faced similar heartbreak can repair and restore their marriage like David and I are doing.”
About what she brings to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi said, “I am outspoken, and that tends to get me in trouble, especially with the ladies that are sitting around pretending to be perfect. I say what is on my mind. A lot of time I misspeak. And I throw the f-bomb around.”
First Bruce Jenner got sued, now Caitlyn Jenner is being sued as well. The reality star has been hit with another lawsuit related to the fatal car accident she was involved in on the Pacific Coast Highway back in February.
Most people would not comment about an active lawsuit they’re involved in. Nor would they go out of their way to taunt and/or throw shade at the person who is suing them. Brandi Glanville is not most people.
In less than a week, Brandi, who seriously lacks any sense at all, did all of the above – comment about the on-going lawsuit on a podcast, taunt Joanna in a restaurant, and throw shade at Joanna on Twitter.
Vicki Gunvalson is WOOHOOING to her hooha’s content and rolling in the affirmations! Brooks Ayers and his (apparently suspect?) cancer have moved in and Vicki is relishing in the fact that she can play the nagging, over-bearing, mother hen who also holds the bank account and the car insurance. “Brooks eat that carrot or you’re gonna get spanked!” Of course, Brooks is acting the part of the rebellious teen sneaking light ranch dressing and whining that he can’t have Wonderbread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter like all the other boys.
“Cancer loves white bread!” Vicki lectures, making a little note to up Brooks’ insurance policy and give a rousing speech at the next insurance convention about the benefits of long-term care policies. Now she knows from experiences. WOO HOO! Vicki is having her affirmations for breakfast and selling them too.
