Why is Season 12 of Real Housewives of Orange County just a rehashing of the same arguments from Season 11 which was all about discussing the drama from Season 10? Isn’t it time to move on and get some fresh story lines? Apparently no one on the show thinks so. Vicki Gunvalson’s knowledge of the cancer scam is still a hot topic of debate. These rumors about Eddie Judge’s sexuality are a constant topic of conversation.
Now, there is even more focus on the Eddie gossip after Tamra Judge’s ex best friend Ricky Santana and her nemesis Gretchen Rossi showed up to Vicki’s birthday party. This resurgence of old faces was both vindictive and desperate. It is far fetched to believe that the conversation happened at random. The bad acting indicates that someone (most likely multiple people) orchestrated the gossip about Eddie in advance. Obviously Vicki denies this. Beyond that she’s even denying that she invited Ricky to the event in the first place. Thankfully Ricky has come through with some receipts. Watch out, Vicki.
So, it didn’t seem like a coincidence that Tamra’s enemy Gretchen Rossi and Tamra’s ex best friend Rickyshowed up to Vicki’s birthday party and “just happen” to gossip about Eddie. It is very obvious that multiple people planned out that conversation ahead of time.
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 Sulahianto 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?
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).
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!
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.
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.
