Peggy Sulahian Defends Pinching Meghan Edmonds' Lips Closed; Says She Was Making Vicki Gunvalson Uncomfortable

I couldn’t believe what I was watching when Peggy Sulahian pinched Meghan Edmonds’s lips shut during the last Real Housewives of Orange County  episode. First off, who does that? Second, Peggy had no idea what she was even reacting to since she just met Meghan that night and she has zero relationships with anyone in the cast.

It was even weirder because Vicki Gunvalson didn’t even seem to be that offended by Meghan’s words. Sure, she was kind of wound up, but Vicki is always wound up. Surprisingly enough, it seemed like they were just having a (relatively) mature discussion with a difference of opinion and they were both handling it pretty well… then Peggy stepped in and grabbed Meghan’s mouth.

Please tell me the finale is not about Tom! It’s about Tom. And what a bittersweet ending The Real Housewives Of New York is giving us this season. Not even twenty-four hours after the ladies’ awesomely insane Mexico trip aired, Luann de Lesseps (yes, we’re back to the old name) announced she’d filed for divorce from Tom D’Agostino, who she’s spent the last eighteen episodes defending as the man who would make all of her dreams come true. In the end, poor Luann traded Countess for Wife, and all she had to show for it was Eggs a la Francaise on her face. But I’m here for single Lu ALL day, EVERY day. So perhaps, eighty-sixing Tom right smack on the heels of Luann totally rocking that Mexico vaycay is perfect timing after all. And given Tom’s (unsurprising) shady behavior last night, Luann’s move to kick his sorry, lying, cheating, de-mic’d a$$ to the curb deserves an extra champagne toast. Hurrah!!!

With Mexico in their rearview mirror, the ladies re-enter Manhattan’s orbit. For Tinsley Mortimer, this means planning a “Thank you and F**k you!” party for her grumpy hostess, Sonja Morgan. The question is: Will Sonja find clean underwear, get out of her dirty robe, and attend it?

Can you believe we are already at the season finale of The Real Housewives of New York City? Newcomer Tinsley Mortimer has had an interesting first season and is reflecting on last week’s shenanigans in her latest blog. This isn’t the first time Tinsley admits to being embarrassed by her behavior on the show. And if she returns next season, it likely won’t be the last time she’ll be embarrassed by it.

Tinsley starts off by explaining that she has been very appreciative of Sonja Morgan‘s hospitality but didn’t expect her to talk shit about her to the other ladies. “Because I was moving out of Sonja’s townhouse to a hotel suite, I really wanted to host a great Thank You party for Sonja. Without question, she had been very generous to invite me to stay at her house during a very difficult period for me. I was so appreciative of this offer and still am, because she really changed my life. I did not, however, expect her to feel the liberty to speak poorly of me to others.”

Lydia McLaughlin In Positano, Italy

Time to envy the lifestyles of the rich and wannabe famous whose job is being a real Housewife! Lydia McLaughlin is vacationing with her family on the Amalfi Coast in Italy and is sharing some stunning photos of the experience. Hopefully no one throws any plates full of pasta!

I suppose Lydia needed another getaway to redeem herself after the Real Housewives Of Orange County star destroyed their recent trip to Hawaii with constant embarrassing and awkward sex talks. Cause um, that’s totally, like glittery-sparkly-fun if you’re a kid! #sarcasm

Tamra & Eddie Renew Vows In Aruba

While Tamra Judge has been vacationing in Aruba, her daughter Sidney hopped on Facebook to blast Tamra’s mothering and lashed out at the Real Housewives Of Orange County star for putting reality TV before their family. 

Sidney has since deleted the excoriating post (thank you Jesus it’s logged for all posterity on the internet!), however before it was removed Tamra rampaged through the comment thread to defend herself and act like Saint Holier Than Thou Of The Jesus Barbies. You can read Sidney’s full statement here

Peggy Sulahian and Meghan Edmonds definitely did not hit it off during their first meeting on The Real Housewives Of Orange County. And now that Peggy’s seen the entire episode – including Meghan’s comments about Peggy and Diko’s Lamborghini event – she’s standing by her move to pinch Meghan’s lips closed more than ever!

First, Peggy expresses disappointment that Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador refused to attend her event out of sheer pettiness. Peggy also regrets being so curt with Shannon on the phone: “I’m glad that the girls were able to make it to our Lamborghini event, although sad that Tamra and Shannon weren’t able to attend. Upon calling Shannon to invite her to the event I hadn’t realized how abruptly I cut her off. The reason why I tried to keep the conversation short was because I didn’t want her to relive those dark moments. She did not owe me any explanation as to why she wasn’t able to attend.”

After what felt like an unusually long charter season on Below Deck Mediterranean, we have finally arrived at tonight’s finale. Between all the hook ups, shifting friendship alliances and overdramatic fights, it’s hard to remember what the dynamic was even like at the start of the season. But one relationship we couldn’t forget (since it dragged out over every single episode) was the love triangle between Chef Adam Glick, Bosun Wesley Wiz Walton and Deckhand/Heartbreaker of the High Seas Malia White. And in case you thought the day would never come, it’s judgement day for Malia. Well, sort of. I have news for all of you Malia haters out there – you might be disappointed at the end of this.

Try as he might, Adam is unable to get Wiz-Golly-Shucks-I-Really-Like-The-Girl to truly give a damn that he is being played like a Croatian fiddle by Malia. I don’t even know if there is such a thing as a Croatian fiddle but if there is, Wiz is being played like one. Adam has not only prepared his speech to Wiz but he also did some “cross referencing” of dates, texts and locations of Malia’s tongue so that he could be fully present all of the evidence to Wiz to make sure he does not befall the same fate as Adam’s poor little broken grown-man heart. I mean, really, does Adam just have the worst case of being a sore loser or what? Well, maybe not the worst, as you’re about to see with The Milkshake Man later this episode, but Adam is close.
