Heather Dubrow is all about expanding her empire this season on the Real Housewives of Orange County. One overpriced sink at a time! She shares updates on her massive new home, husband Terry Dubrow’s success on E!’s Botched, and her friendship with new castmate Meghan Edmonds in her Bravo blog. Heather begins, “As you can see our house is coming along. We are hoping to be in by December – fingers crossed! It’s been fun, but a tremendous amount of work. I’m excited for you all to see the progress as the season goes on! (And check out my newly designed website heatherdubrow.com for video updates!).” Not one to shy away from the limelight himself, Terry is becoming a reality star in his own right, as Heather notes: “Terry is doing amazingly well and BOTCHED has become a huge hit on E!”
Noting that her friendship with Meghan is newer than some reports have suggested, Heather clarifies, “Terry and I have been friends with Meghan’s husband Jimmy for many years. I didn’t know Meghan very well when we started filming, but I really enjoyed getting to know her, and you will too!! She has been an amazing addition to the Orange County cast!” So, I guess Heather and Meghan remain allies on RHOC this year? Sounds like it. From the sounds of Meghan’s blogs and interviews so far, there’s reason to believe #teamHeatherTamraMeghan will be taking on Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson throughout filming.
Yesterday, Kim, through her attorney Robert Shapiro, entered “not guilty” pleas to all three charges. The former Housewife was not present at the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse because she is currently in rehab (again).
As season 10 veteran on the Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson is well versed in the ups and downs of reality television. As a twice-divorced woman who’s had to pay both ex-husbands off post-marriage, she is also not adverse to fiercely protecting her assets when it comes to her new living arrangement with Brooks Ayers – even if it means getting a lawyer involved!
In her Bravo blog, Vicki explains the reasons behind, and terms of, her cohabitation agreement with Brooks. “I have been divorced twice, and both times I had to pay my husband’s off,” she explains, adding, “I never received child support with my first marriage, and with my 2nd marriage I had to pay Donn alimony. This way, I am protected if my relationship doesn’t work out with Brooks. We have a legal binding agreement that my divorce attorney drafted, and Brooks signed without any hesitation. This eliminates any miscommunication in a relationship once you put it all out there about what your expectations are, it’s one less thing to worry about. It’s a pre-nup without the ‘nup’.”
On the season premiere, Simone and Toya picked up right where they left off (see the clip below), screaming and threatening.
Simone admitted in her blog that she’s still not over the reunion confrontation with Toya, adding, “I love a good debate and talking trash, but I don’t believe in physical violence against anyone. And when you top it off by lying about your intent to do bodily harm, I get even more angry and resentful. Forgiveness has never been my strong suit. I am truly sorry you have to see me snapping off on Toya. Unfortunately she has what it takes to push my wrong buttons! Sometimes, I imagine myself as Cookie, but then I quickly realize that I am not.”
Bravo‘s new reality series Mother Funders premieres this Sunday. The cast of PTO moms includes LaShon Thompson, Shana Koorse, Shayzon Prince, Carla Stephens, Robin Dyke, Amber Bryant, and Amber Coulter.
Bravo shares: “Mother Funders is a comedic docu-series which takes a look inside the triumphs and trials of one very special Parent Teacher Organization board in Locust Grove, Georgia, led by super mom and president, Carla. With Carla’s goal to raise as much money as she can for the town’s elementary school, it’s a strict regimen of reading, writing, and arithmetic to raise the most funds for the local elementary school. The only way of reaching her goal is to keep the momentum going and get her fellow board members to plan, execute, and implement extravagant fundraising events which will rake in the cash – but ruffle some feathers along the way.”
I’m sold. I haven’t been this excited about a new Bravo show since Ladies of London. As a PTO mom myself (haha! don’t judge me!), I am intrigued, and I also hope Mother Funders is a suitable replacement for Lifetime’s now- canceled Pretty Wicked Moms, which I loved. Take a look below to meet the cast and watch an exclusive clip from Mother Funders‘ first episode.
Looking to revise (but more likely reprise) her less than stellar image on this season’s Real Housewives of Orange County, resident backstabber Tamra Judge shares why she didn’t invite any of her castmates to son Ryan and daughter in law Sarah’s baby shower, how new girl Meghan Edmonds may have a bigger mouth than her, and why Vicki Gunvalson is already telling lies.
In her Bravo blog, Tamra begins by sharing her excitement about becoming a grandmother to 4-month old Ava, and step-grandma to Sarah’s previous three girls: “Yep it true…I am a Tam-Ma! I finally got the baby I wanted. Ava is now 4 months old and the cutest little girl I have ever seen. It seems like overnight I became a grandmother to four adorable girls. Sarah has three girls from another relationship, Ella 5, Brooklyn 12, and Emily 10. Ryan is up to eyeballs in girls now. My daughter Sophia is so very happy to be an aunt to girls practically her age.” Tamra also thanks her party planners for throwing hay everywhere to “transform” her gym into a virtual honky tonk, saying, “I can’t believe that behind all those bales of hay was our Fitness studio, CUT Fitness, the transformation was beautiful.”
