Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
I don’t blame any Real Housewives cast member for living it up in the off-season. Although being a Real Housewife comes with a lot of perks, it seems like an exhausting process. From the hours of getting glammed up to film, to the arguments that prevent you from finishing dinner at a restaurant, to reliving all of the drama when the episodes air, it just seems like such a tiring experience.
There has been a lot going on with all of your favorite (and least favorite) reality stars this week, which means that Instagram was full of new photos. Jax Taylor got support from his Vanderpump Rules costars (past and present love interests) Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright in Michigan at a “Celebration of Life” event to honor his father who recently passed away. Meanwhile Scheana Marie cozied up to (yet another) one of Brandi Glanville’s exes- Gerard Butler- and posed for a selfie with him, of course. She even claims that he was the one who insisted on taking the photo.
This season of Real Housewives of Orange County had to be a pretty difficult one for Tamra Judge to endure thanks to numerous attacks on her marriage staged by Vicki Gunvalson (over and over again). After living it, then having to relive it when the season aired, Tamra and Eddie Judge could definitely use some quality vacation time away from the drama in Orange County.
The two headed to Mexico for some rest, relaxation, and working out. Yes, Tamra is so dedicated to fitness that she actually worked out on vacation. Props to her. I’ve packed sneakers for plenty of trips and only wore them ironically. Tamra and Eddie epitomize that work hard, play hard mentality and it looks like they really enjoyed their vacation.
Normally, I’m all for any Real Housewives feud, but the issues between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge stopped entertaining me a long time ago. Their refusal to acknowledge each other – other than to bring up issues from YEARS ago without actually moving forward – has really fragmented the show. #NotMyRealHousewives.
I loved seeing the two of them giggling and being playful while they shopped for coats during the last episode in Iceland. It was also very awkward (yet low key entertaining) to see Shannon Beador‘s disapproval and discomfort in response to their interaction. The episode wasn’t all laughs and shopping for Vicki though. She had a serious medical scare at the end of it.
Then there’s Peggy Sulahian and her husband Diko Sulahian forcing us to celebrate a 22nd wedding anniversary. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great that they have been able to make it work for so long and I actually do see the love between them, but who has a party for twenty two years of anything? Twenty years? Makes sense. Twenty five years? Even better. But twenty two? That’s almost as ridiculous a Ramona Singer having a full on vow renewal for her seventeenth wedding anniversary-a couple years before filing for divorce.
It finally happened: Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson sat down for a one-on-one conversation after avoiding each other all season on Real Housewives of Orange County. Unfortunately for the fans, it was very anticlimactic. Vicki accused Tamra’s husband Eddie Judge of only being with her to open a up a gym and continued to bring up old rumors. Tamra calmly walked away and that was it.
Well, that was it for a minute. Now that the episode has aired (and the fans have reacted on social media), Tamra is sharing her thoughts on her (attempt at) lunch with Vicki and Peggy Sulahian’s husband Diko Sulahian confronting Shannon Beadorat their anniversary party.
