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.
Years after vacating the show that made her gold digging ways a household name, she has returned to Real Housewives of Orange County to stir up trouble and give Vicki Gunvalson a bad name. As if Vicki needed any help in that department!
Lauri claims to be defending her husband's honor over untrue information Vicki shared years ago that no one – unfortunately! – has heard. WHY?! Who is hiding this precious gossip from us? And in response Lauri accused Vicki of hauling a toothless Greek God back to the OC and having a three-way on an insurance trip. And I don't mean three-way phone call…
Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County we were treated to a delightfully classy over-the-hill bachelorette party for one in particular mid-life crisis bride's third wedding.
If that weren't enough Lauri Peterson demonstrated her desperation for relevance by sharing so-called salacious details about Vicki Gunvalson's sex life. I barely made it through last night's episode without throwing up. Thanks for that Bravo.
Things begin with newbie Lydia McLaughlin, in all her wide-eyed optimism, showing up at Tamra Barney's house for some girl talk. Walking into the evil sorceress' cave, Lydia holds her magic fairy dust shield close to her heart and remembers to think positive.
Lydia is just like so impressed and keeps talking about how "classy" and "fancy" Tamra's hostessing is. First of all, the word "classy" and Tamra do not belong in the same sentence.
