A few beautiful wedding dresses can make anything better! Even a limo full of badly behaving Real Housewives of Orange County. Yep, I like even Tamra Barney better when she's all stuffed into a stunning white gown. Maybe because I can imagine the fabric drowning out her voice.
So last night was another infamous Tamra Starts Getting Married episode. After she decided to be the the bigger girl and invite Alexis Bellino to her ultimate special dress shopping extravaganza for trip down the aisle numero tres, friction between Gretchen Rossi who like totally thought she was the numero uno in importance, arose. Tamra no likey.
Tamra meets finace Eddie for dinner at their gym which is still basically an abandoned warehouse at this point and Tamra is wearing some sort of animal hide cape. Seriously – what was that thing Cruella DeVille? I thought Tamra only killed and skinned other housewives. Silence of the Implants!
How much fun was it to walk down memory lane with the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County? Lest we forget (as if she'd ever let us!) Vicki Gunvalson has been there since day one. I mean, hey, her kids are part of the reason that it even exists!
In her Bravo blog, Vicki attempts to come across as light-hearted, normal, and down-to-earth. She'd never spread gossip, and she's sad by broken friendships. Has she been watching the same ninety-nine episodes to which we've been treated? Vicki takes particular offense to former friend Lauri Peterson's return to stir the pot…something she's never done herself, right?
Ahh, the memories. Let's hear Vicki's take on it, shall we?
Last night the show celebrated its 100th episode with a 2-hour flashback/recap of some of the show's most iconic moments. Among the milestones was catching up with some of the memorable cast mates throughout the 8-season run and discussing current cast member's reflections to how the show has evolved.
Tamra Barney, you will be relieved to know, hasn't changed one single iota except her hair has gotten less frizzy and her boobs smaller. Thank God for small mercies… #sarcasm In her casting video Tamra is a grade-A bitch and says when producers told her they were deciding between her and one other woman for the spot she turned up the ruthlessness.
Celebrating 100 episodes of true craziness (and for being Housewives pioneers) all the old favorites from the seasons past of RHOC will return to talk shop, dish on behind-the-scenes details, and reveal top secret info we've all been dying to know. Such as, just how on earth did we get stuck with Slave Smiley?
I have to hand it to Tamra, for a season and a half she has really been selling us on this whole 'Gretchen is my BFFL and I misjudged her all this time. I'm so happy we made amends' act. I almost believed her. Oh, who am I kidding – we were as likely to buy that as we were to buy a Gretchen Christine Plasticine Sack.
Now that the Tamretchen fractures are being featured on the show, Tamra is only too eager to reveal that yeah, Gretchen is kinda annoying. In her new blog she complains about Slave Slimey, Gretchen's 'ultimatums' and Lauri Peterson's ulterior motives concerning Tamra's true bestie Vicki Gunvalson!
Vicki reveals that she and Lauri had a "cordial" relationship as acquaintances for years after she left the show. The two even appeared on WWHL together last year with no malice. And she explains the phone call from George's MIL that seems to be behind Lauri's animosity.
"I received a phone call from George’s ex-mother-in-law at my work who proceeded to tell me some 'not so nice' things about George. She told me that her ex-son in law (George) was 'not so nice' to his children and her daughter and that I should let Lauri know this. Since Lauri was a new friend of mine, I really didn't know what to do with this information. I was not real close with her, but she did work for me and I didn't want to get in her personal relationship with George, nor did I want to hurt her with this information because I didn't know if it was true or just malicious information."
Like twoseconds after the scandal broke, the Real Housewives of Orange County star's twitter and facebook conveniently disappeared. Well now Vicki is insisting her social media was hacked. A likely story… #WeDontBelieveYou
If we learned anything last week it's that brunettes may have more fun, but not if their name is Heather Dubrow!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star helped plan a snoozer of a bachelorette party for co-star Tamra Barney and although it was no kinda girls weekend I'd like to go on, perhaps it was appropriate for a third-time bride in her mid-forties! Midlife Crisis Matrimony, y'all!
Unfortunately Tamra didn't think it was fun at all, so she ditched Heather and Gretchen Rossi at the world's most boring restaurant and took off with Vicki "Penis Pop Whoop It Up" Gunvalson. And Heather was NOT impressed – and she also insists that Tamra said she wanted a low-key weekend.
