By now we all know that the Real Housewives Of Orange County season 12 reunion was a wild one! Shannon Beador shared the news that she and David have separated (finally), and I guarantee those ‘allegations‘ from Vicki Gunvalson will be brought up (Again. And Again. Cause this is Bravo’s version of Groundhog Day…).
Looks like we made it! Shahs of Sunset season six is officially finished and tonight’s part two of the reunion did its best to leave no stone unturned when it came to the burning questions of the season like what’s up with Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s marriage? Is she a less angry, better hearing version of herself thanks to rehab and a hearing aid? Is Mike Shouhed still seeing ex-wife Jessica Parido? Does anyone still care at this point? Is Reza Farahan faithful to husband Adam Neely? Does anyone care about that either? And finally, why is Asa Soltan Rahmati on the show? I guess people care about this one. OK, so none of these were really burning questions but Bravo loves to drag out these reunions so whatevs, here’s the breakdown of it all.
We resume from last week’s cliffhanger about whether or not Reza believes his soon-to-be-ex-best-friend Asa’s claim that she didn’t do IVF to conceive her son. Reza, being the slime ball friend that he is, says he does believe her but he has doubts. So he doesn’t believe her? No, he believes her but he hates himself for having doubts. Ohhh I see, he wants so badly to believe his friend but he is also Reza and therefore cannot be trusted and wants to roll with everyone who is pushing Asa out this season, so he can’t stand by her. Are you all following this? I think this is the end of Asa. Because as much as she can be annoying with her magical diamond liquid gold baby organic priestess-ness, she is probably the only one on the show who does value her friendships and now that her friendship with Reza is fractured, what is the point of it all?
Danielle Staub and Housewives Superfan Michael Rapaport were guests in the clubhouse last night on Watch What Happens Live. Danielle was her typical blunt self, bashing Dolores Catania and give her opinions on all things Real Housewives of New Jersey.
On Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice spatting over the restaurant, Danielle said “I think it’s just family banter, to be honest with you. I think they’re comfortable with each other and I think they’re willing to say whatever it is that’s on their minds and that’s a good thing. And I wouldn’t want to be a waitress either!”
Whoever decided to book Kelly Dodd and LeeAnne Locken for the same Watch What Happens Live episode deserves a raise. What a fire pairing. Andy Cohen barely had to do any hosting. These two were more than happy to open up.
Kelly and LeeAnne spilled tea, talked shit, and kept it real as they possibly could.
The reunion venues for the Shahs of Sunset are getting bigger and so are the accusations. We barely make it through Andy Cohen greeting everyone before the gloves come off, or as Asa Soltan Rahmati observes, the Uzis come out. Asa was of course, a big, pregnant target this season and even in the glow of new motherhood, her cast mates aren’t about to let her off the hook. Even Vida, who usually likes to reserve her most blistering commentary for her own daughter, comes for Asa and trust me when I say her Uzi was fully loaded for that exchange.
Before we go there, I feel like I’m sitting down with a totally different cast than what I saw this season – long gone are any blonde highlights from Mercedes “MJ” Javid and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. Instead, their hair is dyed as black as their little hearts. Another thing that’s gone is Reza Farahan’s mustache, along with 43 pounds, to be exact. Mike Shouhed and Shervin Roohparvar are bringing the 90s back, with Mike’s emo eyeliner and Shervin’s slicked back little ponytail with the sides shaved.
To put it mildly, Kameron Westcott has not had the best reception from Real Housewives of Dallas fans. So it’s sadly not surprising that Andy Cohen asked “Does Kameron think she is better than everyone else?” during an audience poll on Watch What Happens Live. Hopefully watching this season back will allow Kameron to get it together if she returns next season, but she doesn’t seem to be fazed by the criticism.
Maybe the reunion will be a different story though. Joining Kameron on the show was fellow RHOD newbie D’Andra Simmons and they had a lot to say about Cary Deuber and Mark Deuber’s marriage and Brandi Redmond of course.
Even though Real Housewives of New Jersey has been The Teresa Giudice Show for a long time, the real show this season has been all about the animosity between Siggy Flicker and Margaret Josephs. Even though they clearly cannot stand each other, they have to be somewhat grateful to be at the center of the season. Or at least that’s what I imagine. All publicity is good publicity- right? I feel like their girl Joan Rivers would agree with that sentiment.
The Siggy and Marge Show continued after the last RHONJ episode during Siggy’s Watch What Happens Live appearance. Even though Margaret hasn’t been in the clubhouse, Andy Cohen and the viewers pushed Siggy to dish all about the new girl so it really felt like she was there.
Out of all the Real Housewives, Vicki Gunvalson has been in this franchise the longest. So why does she seem to forget that cameras are recording her and that she has to be accountable for her own words and actions. Does she not watch Real Housewives of Orange County? That’s the only way I could (semi) understand where Vicki is coming from.
Last week Vicki royally screwed up that meetup with Tamra Judge when she told her that Eddie Judge only married her to get a gym and brought up the gay rumors. AGAIN. Outing someone’s alleged sexual preferences should not be a story line, yet it has been many times throughout the Real Housewives franchise.
