Apparently rumors that Kelly has a secret boyfriend named Frank have been well-known through the OC, and several cast members heard them prior to filming, during, or after.
“This is like not new news in Newport. I’ve heard it; we’ve all heard it… We’ve been hearing it forever,” declares Tamra. “For me, it’s like a rumor, so none of us brought it up on the show.” (Except Shannon…)
I never thought I would mention Vicki Gunvalson and Ramona Singer in the same sentence, yet here I am. No, there isn’t some sort of Housewives crossover happening,- although that would really be the dream. The two were both on a panel at Mohegan Sun’s anniversary party, so of course they were asked a million questions and it always comes back to the boy drama for these shows. Naturally, they both dished on being single after the very public demise of their previous relationships.
It seems like Ramona came out stronger than ever after her divorce from Mario Singer who she found out was cheating on her in the press. On the flip side, Vicki is still reeling from her relationship with Brooks Ayers and the cancer scam even though she already has a new boyfriend. Nevertheless, they both know what it’s like to have their love lives in the Real Housewives spotlight.
Listening to Vicki talk about how her life was affected by cancer and how she really believed Brooks Ayers actually had cancer was tough to watch and aside from that it was obviously a poor PR move after all the negative press she had last year. I also did not understand the charity at all, but now it has been shut down (at least the website) and Vicki is doing what she can to backpedal and distance herself after hyping it up and starring in that awkward commercial.
Tamra insists she wasn’t instigating with Shannon Beador and Vicki, she wanted them to address things and move on. “I brought up the voicemail to Vicki because she could at least say “thank you” to Shannon and they could move on. After all, Shannon did reach out to see how she was doing and tell her she didn’t understand the severity of the accident. I think it was a big step for Shannon to approach Vicki and to tell her she was sorry. It seemed like Vicki clearly wanted to hold on to the fact Shannon didn’t see her at the hospital. Almost like she had the upper hand now.”
Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador did not start out too buddy-buddy when they first shared screen time on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but they’ve come a long way since then. Tamra, in fact, seems to be one of Shannon‘s staunchest allies this season, in particular. Maybe Jesus fixed it? Hallelujah!
Oh how the tide has changed. Vicki Gunvalson started out this season as public enemy number one on Real Housewives of Orange County. Now that Vicki got in that scary dune buggy accident, she actually has a valid reason to play the victim. Not only that, but it can also be argued that she has a legitimate reason to come after Shannon Beador now after her less than caring reaction to Vicki’s hospitalization.
Vicki says she’s doing fine now, but still has some residual damage in her neck and back. She says she’ll probably always have compressed discs now. But she’s remaining positive, “it could’ve been worse.”
