I cannot be the only one who feels like the instant friendship between Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd is less than genuine. Maybe they ended up being really good friends, but it’s pretty obvious that their immediate kinship came from a place of attention-seeking desperation.
We are only two episodes into Season 11 of Real Housewives of Orange County and it’s very clear the the rest of the cast can’t stand Vicki for all of the Brooks Ayers-related bullshit that she put them through last year. Vicki needs friends and Kelly needs to get some camera time if she wants to stick around on the show so it makes total sense for these two to link up. That’s not how Vicki sees it though, or at least that’s not the justification she has for this new relationship.
Heather Dubrow is definitely the most diplomatic cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County. She is the epitome of class and she is one of the few housewives who doesn’t use her spare time to be a shit stirrer. So when Heather is mad at someone, it is always for a good reason – minus that one time in Season 8 when she got mad at her husband Terry Dubrow over some onion rings.
But anyway, Heather is clearly the most reasonable person in the cast, not to mention the nicest, so this means that she really thinks that Vicki Gunvalson screwed up since she refuses to forgive her for her involvement with her ex Brooks Ayers’s cancer scandal. So why can’t we actually have new story lines in season 11? So why can’t Heather move on?
Heather promised that while the next few episodes are easing us in by introducing Kelly, and reconnecting the women, things really take off in a few episodes. “This was a building episode,” she says. “A lot of information was sort of subtly given, so I hope people were really paying attention.”
There have only been two episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County’s eleventh season and I’m already so over Vicki Gunvalson and her extremely forced friendship with Kelly Dodd. It is so obvious that they both just want to hang out so they can get camera time since they have no other friends in the cast.
I don’t get how Meghan Edmonds is Kelly’s link to the group since Kelly immediately started sucking up to her nemesis from last season. This Kelly girl comes off as an attention-seeking shit stirrer. So I would love to know what Meghan thinks of letting her “friend” into the inner circle.
Last night someone on Real Housewives Of Orange County was diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Of course that’s not surprising. At. All. But what is surprising is that Kelly Dodd claims it was her husband Michael, former COO of a massive company, who was the afflicted. Are we sure Kelly didn’t misread something? After all, she isVicki GunvlasonJr. – and we know how Vicki happens to misread medical documents!
Oh last night was a doozy. Everyone is on a yacht with Vicki fauxpologizing to Heather Dubrow about her presumed role in the Brooks assumed cancer scam. Obviously this conversation went on and on, but we got like 4 disjointed snippets of Vicktim pretending she has no idea why the women are angry with her after she admitted to seeing “red flags” but reacted by yelling, “Buy my cancer juice! Love my boyfriend! I Do! I DO! I DO! I DO! Oh wait – there’s no altar, but I do see a cross! I’m persecuted like Jesus! WOO HOO!”
Aside from the social issues within the clique, Vicki also had another scary experience when she got in a dangerous dune buggy accident that was caught on camera. Vicki almost died and so did her cast mates Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow.
On tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalsoncries tears over wanting to be happy and not wanting her co-stars to be angry with her over the Brooks Ayers mess. Vicki meets up for lunch with newbie Kelly where they find many things common and Vicki reveals to Kelly that her breakup with Brooks was more painful than her marriage ending.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
