A few beautiful wedding dresses can make anything better! Even a limo full of badly behaving Real Housewives of Orange County. Yep, I like even Tamra Barney better when she's all stuffed into a stunning white gown. Maybe because I can imagine the fabric drowning out her voice.
So last night was another infamous Tamra Starts Getting Married episode. After she decided to be the the bigger girl and invite Alexis Bellino to her ultimate special dress shopping extravaganza for trip down the aisle numero tres, friction between Gretchen Rossi who like totally thought she was the numero uno in importance, arose. Tamra no likey.
Tamra meets finace Eddie for dinner at their gym which is still basically an abandoned warehouse at this point and Tamra is wearing some sort of animal hide cape. Seriously – what was that thing Cruella DeVille? I thought Tamra only killed and skinned other housewives. Silence of the Implants!
Last night the show celebrated its 100th episode with a 2-hour flashback/recap of some of the show's most iconic moments. Among the milestones was catching up with some of the memorable cast mates throughout the 8-season run and discussing current cast member's reflections to how the show has evolved.
Tamra Barney, you will be relieved to know, hasn't changed one single iota except her hair has gotten less frizzy and her boobs smaller. Thank God for small mercies… #sarcasm In her casting video Tamra is a grade-A bitch and says when producers told her they were deciding between her and one other woman for the spot she turned up the ruthlessness.
Our favorite reality TV stars can't get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
I have to hand it to Tamra, for a season and a half she has really been selling us on this whole 'Gretchen is my BFFL and I misjudged her all this time. I'm so happy we made amends' act. I almost believed her. Oh, who am I kidding – we were as likely to buy that as we were to buy a Gretchen Christine Plasticine Sack.
Now that the Tamretchen fractures are being featured on the show, Tamra is only too eager to reveal that yeah, Gretchen is kinda annoying. In her new blog she complains about Slave Slimey, Gretchen's 'ultimatums' and Lauri Peterson's ulterior motives concerning Tamra's true bestie Vicki Gunvalson!
Things begin with Heather Dubrow being ridiculous. Apparently Heather just cannot possibly attend Lydia's salsa party if AlexisBellino is there given that Alexis is like soooo fake and phony and faux and everything horrible. Lydia encourages Heather to try and make amends with Alexis and call her so they can put their differences aside. Lydia calls herself the "Friendship Whisperer." If this woman starts teaching classes and writing how-to books about training people to curb their aggression using treats I think I might explode.
After much twisting of the Chanel pearls ('cause costume jewelry is only acceptable if it's Chanel) Heather concedes she will be the bigger person and call Alexis. Lydia lets out a squee.
In the past two episodes of Real Housewives of New Jersey,Teresa Giudice has been keeping us mesmerized with her sparkly, jewel-encrusted, bedazzled trucker hat. If you've been admiring it and wondering if Milania was taking orders, you're in luck!
Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino took to Twitter to claim the hat as part of her very own collection. Alexis shared, "Thank you @teresa_giudice for wearing the Alexis Diamond Trucker hat on #RHONJ the past 2 episodes! Get yours at http://www.shop.glitzybella.com/The-Alexis-Diamond-Trucker-hat-403031.htm "
We've got a sneak peek of Tamra Barney's wedding and her dress! As we were working on a post about Tamra's wedding and her co-stars' sharing photos leading up to the ceremony, a Reality Tea reader sent us photos of the big event happening! Our reader happened to be at Tamra and Eddie Judge's wedding venue this evening (the St. Regis Monarch Beach) and snapped a few pics of the excitement – and the Bravo cameras getting it all on film for her spinoff special.
The first photo shows the ceremony as it's going on. Unfortunately, we can't get it zoomed in enough to see if Vicki Gunvalson is really a bridesmaid. I want to say that the first woman in the attendant line is Vicki, but I can't say for sure. The ceremony looks gorgeous, I'll give them that!
Our reader also snapped Tamra and Eddie coming down the aisle toward the cameramen.
Both Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow have confirmed their invitations, and now Alexis Bellino is doing the same. Hey, it's not a Bravo wedding without drama. Despite rumors to the contrary, Alexis will watch Tamra walk down the aisle. Third time's the charm!
Of course, it works out well…now Alexis will have some screen time on Tamra's OC Wedding spin-off!
