Eddie Judge

Gretchen

Casting Peggy Sulahian for Real Housewives of Orange County seems like the most random choice. She didn’t know any of the women before joining the show and she doesn’t seem to have any grasp on what is going on between the women. It doesn’t make a lot of sense for her to be on this show.

Plus her “story line” for the last episode was going to the post office with her husband Diko Sulahian to mail an envelope for their daughter’s college applications. Why couldn’t she just put the envelope in her own mailbox at home? Isn’t her daughter applying online anyway? Is this really the best story line she could come up with?

Kelly & Vicki

Kelly Dodd never fails to crush an opportunity to rise to the top! Most of us were on her side when Meghan Edmonds claimed Kelly attacked her by accusing Jimmy Dad Jeans of cheating yet failed to mention that she initially accused Kelly of having a boyfriend, but then Kelly undid all her Brownie points by trotting out a rusty ol’Gretchen Christine, Queen Plastine, to further rumors that Eddie Judge is secretly gay.

And even worse, Kelly did all of this to try and sell the idea that Vicki Gunvalson isn’t responsible for the mean and erroneous things she says. Dang does it stab me in the heart to have to even loosely defend Tamra Judge on anything (but I’m doing this for Eddie you guys! It’s like my version of bathroom porn, or something).

Vicki Gunvalson

Poor Vicki Gunvalson. She wants to be a good friend and get along with all the girls so they can have a good old fashioned whoop it up time, until she invites scandalous gossip mongers to her birthday party, then she’s all “Tell me more!”

Vicki started off on the right foot by asking Tamra Judge to coffee. She ended up in the wrong red dress when she continued to facilitate inappropriate speculation about Eddie Judge’s life. Vicki needs Spanx for her mouth, as well as for her red dress.

“When I decided to call Tamra to ask her to go get coffee it was because I’m tired of the fighting and I wanted to make amends. She has been doing everything she can to alienate me with my friends. We weren’t even speaking when Kelly and I talked about it. I don’t know why she can’t let it go and move on,” Vicki complains. Cause: accountability!

Tamra Judge

It is getting out of hand on Real Housewives of Orange County. Long gone are the days where the biggest problems are Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge ditching the rest of the cast to go to club in Mexico and Vicki peeing the bed. Now it’s far from those lighthearted issues.

Vicki is very adamant about the rumors that Tamra’s husband Eddie Judge is “secretly gay” and that Shannon Beador’s husband David Beador “beats her.” No one is willing to speak to each other, let alone film together. There are some strong feelings of animosity between these women and Tamra is not shy sharing her opinion after the Eddie bashing that went down at Vicki‘s birthday party.

Shannon wonders about Peggy's cancer

Even though Shannon Beador isn’t holding up that center orange in the Real Housewives of Orange County introduction, she really should be at this point. There is always something going on with Shannon. She is going through it this season – from the weight gain, to the marital strife, to her feuds with the other ladies, she has a lot to address week after week.

Shannon has issues with Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd (still) and she’s even getting into it with Lydia McLaughlin and Peggy Sulahian who she did not know before this season. Sure, she got along with Kelly for one episode, but that was short-lived… as expected.

Tamra Judge

Just like many Real Housewives before her, Tamra Judge is defying age. Thanks to her dedication to fitness and an on point face lift, Tamra is killing it as a fifty year old. So of course she had a lot to celebrate.

Tamra, her husband Eddie Judge, and some of their friends went to Carmel after flights to Cabo were cancelled. Tamra also continued the celebrations at home with her family and at work at her gym.

Tamra & Lydia spartan race

During the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge invited Lydia McLaughlin and Shannon Beador to do a race with her and her husband. The husbands Eddie Judge, Doug McLaughlin, and David Beador participated as well, but there was a catch: Shannon did not join. So David ended up fifth wheeling his way through the race, which I guess is better than going out to dinner with two couples, but it was still kind of odd.

Shannon was upset that David was spending so much time exercising instead of being with her, so it would make sense for her to join the race- even though doing obstacles in the mud is so far from my personal idea of fun. I figured she would at least end up going to the race to support her friends and husband, but she did not and Shannon’s latest nemesis Lydia was pretty surprised by that.

Meghan St. Patty's Day Makeup

Now that she’s actually back in the mix with (some of) the ladies of The Real Housewives Of Orange County, Meghan Edmonds has a front row seat to the shifting alliances and drama that are plaguing this group. But this week offered up a surprising moment between Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd, which Meghan admits she was shocked to witness.

Before discussing that St. Patrick’s Day miracle, Meghan celebrates the idea of throwing herself back into the modeling world, even if it is somewhat of a pipe dream. She jokes, “It’s fun to (pretend to) be a model sometimes and for me, it’s so important for my mental health to work and play outside the home.”
