Tamra Judge hasn’t written her musings down in a while because she says, “to be honest I hate writing my blogs. It just doesn’t come easy to me.” But she’s back this week to rehash the main themes of this week’s Real Housewives of Orange County, which basically were (for Tamra): Baptisms, Enabling of Man-Children, and Sticking by Vicki No Matter What. Although Tamra does question the level of Vicki Gunvalson’s epic freak out on daughter Briana Culberson, so it’s not all blind allegiance in the end, perhaps.
Plugging her “sex tape” right out of the gate Tamra claims, “we thought about doing an intro video that would get everyone’s attention. I think we did just that with our fake sex tape, so far over 10 million people have viewed it on YouTube. We get a lot of viewers from around the world asking for fitness tips. We are working on providing free videos on fitness & nutrition. So please subscribe for updated videos.” Well, make that 10 million and one, cuz I just clicked on that YouTube link, and spoiler alert: it’s the same exact clip we watched on RHOC! A sucker is born everyday I guess. And today, that sucker is me. #lowpoint
“Watching Jimmy and I eat dinner alone at our house was relaxing to see,” said Meghan. “We rarely do that. We travel so much so we either eat on the go or go out and catch up with friends. I think the dinner date at home alone with your spouse is underrated – we need to do more of that!
Can we stop talking about cancer? Obviously it’s terrible, but does an entire season of Real Housewives really need to be devoted to questioning it, discussing it, and arguing over who is the expert on it. Especially when ME-ME-ME-Meghan, the person most vociferously insisting she’s the so-called expert can’t even figure out how to make MINUTE RICE!! (This same person then brags that a meal containing Minute Rice is healthy. Oh honey… have you learned nothing from Vicki: cancer loves processed food!).
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Among tonight’s topics, Vicki talked about life since her mom passed away and addressed her criticism of Meghan King Edmonds, and Jeff shared his thoughts on being fired from Living Spaces and talked about his friendship with Shannon Beador.
When asked if she watched the episode in which she learned her mom passed away, Vicki shared, “Yes, I did. I blacked out there. It was part of my life, and I kind of felt like I’d see her come back through that episode, but I didn’t. It has been a really big void for our family. Briana was very close to my mom. It has just been really hard on all of us. It has been really, really hard… harder than I would have ever imagined it to be.”
A lot of time was spent on Vicki and Tamra, and the poll was, Vicki and Tamra: forever friends or never again?
When asked if she was bothered when Tamra said Jeana Keough was a good friend to her this year, Vicki said, “It didn’t bother me. Jeana’s definitely always in people’s business, so it was a normal thing for her to be in her business.” Andy called attention to the shade. “It is what it is,” she added. “Jeana was very helpful to Tamra and I was not.”
Brooks shared, “It’s been a challenging couple of months for Vicki and myself for sure, but we’re good. One of the words I use to describe Vicki is ‘intense.’ She’s intense in every aspect of her life in whatever she’s doing. Having fun, whooping it up, or working, in a relationship, or whatever, she’s intense — and that’s a good thing.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County star had planned to spend time with Briana this summer as Briana prepared for her the birth of her second son, but baby had other plans! Vicki shared over the weekend that the baby was going to be early, so she had to rush off to be with her family. She wrote on Friday, “Just got to LAX to catch a 6am flight to OKC. Our new baby decided to come a early. Can’t get there quick enough! Pray for healthy baby and momma. 4thofJulybaby.”
