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.
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.
Starting off with her own birthday situation, Shannon says we need to back off if we think she needs to shut up already with her whining to David about Vicki’s allegations. “It is difficult to watch my birthday conversation with David. For all of you that are going to tell me to just keep my mouth shut and stop complaining, let me stop you there. I haven’t been bringing up this subject over and over. I don’t talk about it every minute. But on this one year anniversary of the vow renewal, you are actually seeing me talk about things from my heart. I had no intention of going into this subject, but because of the day, it just happened. Yes, I was stressed about the whole Vicki allegation situation because I didn’t want my family to get hurt. We have been through enough. But that was six months ago and I am having the hardest time realizing that David has been distancing himself from me.”
Someone once told me if you have nothing nice to say; say nothing at all. Well, unfortunately I’m not at liberty to do that – sorry Real Housewives Of Orange County. I have nothing nice to say about any of you, and the thought of holding it all in makes me want to cry like I’m Meghan Edmonds fake-sobbing in a canyon. Maybe Meghan’s tears were instal-dried by the wind or evaporated. Or plastic people make plastic tears which just clog in their tear ducts and until they’re plucked out and thrown away.
Meghan and Vicki Gunvalson aren’t so different, are they? It’s ME ME ME all the TIME TIME TIME. No one understands and blah, blah, blah…
Sidney has since deleted the excoriating post (thank you Jesus it’s logged for all posterity on the internet!), however before it was removed Tamra rampaged through the comment thread to defend herself and act like Saint Holier Than Thou Of The Jesus Barbies.
