This Ireland trip is making some great TV on Real Housewives of Orange County thanks to Kelly Dodd and her antics. This season would be boring without her – at least in my opinion. Although I don’t know what the cast members think about her constant outbursts, but as a viewer, I’m seriously living for it. I’m also curious about how Meghan Edmonds feels since Kelly was brought on the show as HER friend. And now she’s going off on everyone and becoming best friends with Vicki Gunvalson, who Meghan can’t stand.
Then there’s this Ireland trip. ProductionMeghan planned this trip with her husband Jim Edmonds after tracing back their baby’s genealogy to Ireland. So I find it weird that the two of them didn’t go and that Meghan (obviously) had to sit out on a lot of the antics since she can’t party while she’s pregnant. Meghan is on the sidelines of “her” own trip thanks to Kelly taking on the staring role – as per usual. So how does Meghan feel about Kelly saying offensive things to and about Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow during their vacation?
Love her or hate her, you have to admit that this Real Housewives of Orange County season would be extremely boring if you took Kelly Dodd out of the mix. I can safely say that as a viewer, but I’m sure that he women who are actually cast members on the show could do without her dramatics. One of those ladies is Shannon Beador who hasn’t gotten along with Kelly right from the very beginning.
After Kelly’s outbursts in Ireland, Shannon is taking her to task, defending Tamra Judge, and taking (another) opportunity to throw Vicki Gunvalson under the bus. Shannon has never been the type to hold back in the past and she definitely has no issue going in on Kelly now.
I honestly don’t know where to begin with last night’s trip to Ireland, except that I’m incredibly disappointed that there were no cameras rolling to see Heather Dubrow get kicked out of a bathroom, Kim Richards-style, in a high-class department store, then escorted out the door for being one of those raucous Americans. You just know that was the very most earth-shatteringly distressing moment of Heather’s life.
Kelly Dodd‘s world is riddled with fights – at candle stores, at book launches, before Costco, after Costco…even all the way in Ireland – and she breaks them all down in her Real Housewives of Orange County blog.
Tamra insists she wasn’t instigating with Shannon Beador and Vicki, she wanted them to address things and move on. “I brought up the voicemail to Vicki because she could at least say “thank you” to Shannon and they could move on. After all, Shannon did reach out to see how she was doing and tell her she didn’t understand the severity of the accident. I think it was a big step for Shannon to approach Vicki and to tell her she was sorry. It seemed like Vicki clearly wanted to hold on to the fact Shannon didn’t see her at the hospital. Almost like she had the upper hand now.”
We can always count on Heather Dubrow to focus on herself instead of the low-base bullshit drama of her castmates. So when the candle flame starts to flicker, we also know she’ll be the first one out the door scooting home to a life of champs and Chanel.
It’s not like Shannon had an epiphany No, she was just tired of everyone pointing out the obvious: she has unresolved issues with Vicki. Of course Vicki resorted to thinly veiled threats basically forcing Shannon to act like her friend, or else, because the best way to start over is by holding a person hostage by potential secrets. ‘Or else’ what…we’re not sure since Vicki has the ‘or else’ in ‘the vault’ stored alongside the date she realized Brooks was faking cancer.
