Kelly Dodd has said some pretty offensive stuff to her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars, but it was so obvious that they were all trying to provoke her during the Ireland trip. Everyone knows Kelly doesn’t shine when there’s liquor involved, so I found it extremely suspect that Shannon Beador, of all people, was pushing Kelly to down more liquor when she said she didn’t want to. Why would she do that? I really don’t get it and neither does Meghan Edmonds.
Even though the trip to Ireland was supposedly Meghan’s idea, she was not present for most of the drama, so she was watching that dinner scene for the first time with us viewers. I was on the fence about Shannon setting up Kelly at that 70’s party, but after seeing her push alcohol on Kelly (multiple times!), it definitely seems plausible.
Last night’s Real Housewives of Orange County episode was a horribly edited mess, to say the least. It was choppy and you can tell we missed a LOT of what really happened. Thankfully Heather Dubrow videoed some of it or we would’ve only heard the many different versions of the story later.
Tamra Judge took to her blog to try to expand on a few of the situations and give her side of things. In her blog she blasts Kelly Dodd for her crazy behavior, claims that classless booby flasher Vicki Gunvalson loves to throw people under the bus, stands firm in her innocence regarding attempts to get Kelly wasted, and so much more.
What a strange episode! So Kelly Dodd is a rampant liability who needs to be exposed, so suddenly the ladies are all BFF with Vicki again. Yes, even Shannon. Tequila Shots became the Trojan Horse of RHOC last night, and it was well, awful.
These women know Vicki’s love tank, all cylinders of it, are running on “E” and her yearning to be their friend is so palpable you could drink it in a shot glass. Yet, who is Kelly’s only conceivable ally on RHOC? Vicki – the other ostracized one. And how do you get Kelly defenseless when she’s indefensible? Capture Vicki, leaving her bogged down in the conflict between what is right and what is right for her right now.
Last week we had drunken fits, nasty words exchanged, Tamra Judge hyper-ventilating, and the ladies getting kicked out of a high end store. This week we have more of the same, with some cow milking mixed in.
“I think because I’m now so well-known for being ‘me’ that it’s just an odd thing,” Heather explained. “And the kinds of things they call me about are to either be myself – which I don’t wanna do – or kind of a ‘stereotypical of my character as it’s perceived on the show’ role.”
Poor Heather Dubrow is distressed that her reputation in Ireland has been ruined by association with Kelly Dodd. While Heather is “over” Kelly and steering clear, she wonders where Kelly’s ‘good friend’ Vicki Gunvalson was to defend in her friend’s moments of peril?! (A: Whooping Me Up!).
