While Vicki and Brooks' relationship appears to be as on-and-off as a light switch, Lauri is Waring wary that the couple's recent break-up may not be what it seems. She is speculating that the pair is using the story of a turbulent love affair to appease family and friends when they are actually quite happy together behind closed doors.
Say what? A housewife manipulating her relationship status to stay in the spotlight? Unheard of!
You want to know who isn't talking to one another on Real Housewives of Orange County? Unfortunately, I can't give you a cut and dry answer to that question, but I can tell you who IS talking to the media at any given moment. Care to take a guess? If you guessed Gretchen Rossi, you'd be wrong close.
Tamra Barney is all about giving out soundbites these days. Not only is she dishing on her friendships (or lack thereof) with Vicki Gunvalson, Gretchen, and Alexis Bellino, Tammy is also reportedly getting a Bravo spin-off with soon-to-be husband Eddie Judge. I know y'all can't wait to set your DVRs!
Real Housewives of Orange County was full all about actors last night. Except the only person who was legitimately doing any acting was Heather Dubrow. And no – she wasn't acting like a biatch this episode. Oh wait… yes she was but not as part of her real life, but as part of a role she was hired to play. But not for Bravo. AAAAHHH! I'm so confused…
Things begin with a blast from the past. Gold digging expert Lauri Peterson is resurrected to give Tamra Barney a little advice on making marriage number three last. Third times a charm, eh! They meet up at a jewelry store and Lauri looks great. All three of her children are doing well and good for her – hopefully life is going smoothly.
Since Lauri and Tamra were never really friends they resort to talking about someone they have in common: Vicki Gunvalson. Tamra fills Lauri in on how post-divorce Vicki is like soooo delusional and dating a loser. Lauri snickers and chooses this time to remind Tamra about how Vicki broke up her marriage to Simon. That's a great thing to be discussing while you're choosing a wedding ring for your third betrothed. #ManEaters
Apparently the drama this season will be quite insane with the ladies bickering and going through several personal dramas. "Friendships change constantly," Tamratells OK Magazine. "Last year it ended with me and Vicki [Gunvalson] in a huge fight and I think you’ll see the ups and downs of us this year."
"Vicki and I—we go up and down. We fight and we make up," Tamra explains. "But even when we’re fighting we still talk. It’s crazy. We have a really weird relationship."
I can now say with certainty that Real Housewives of Orange County'sVicki Gunvalson's love tank is no longer being filled by Brooks Ayers. What? No more daily affirmations? No more crawfish boils? No more rented furs? I wonder what happened there…I'm guessing that she got tired of spending all her money on him. Vicki recently chatted about all things Season 8, grandson Troy, and bacon vodka. What is the housewives' obsession with having their own liquor line?
Also in RHOC news, Tamra Barney is shopping for her wedding duds and bringing along the majority of her co-stars…whether she's friends with them or thinks they are fake air heads. That's right. Vicki, Heather Dubrow, Gretchen Rossi, former cast member Lauri Waring Peterson, new housewife Lydia Stirling McLaughlin, and dun dun dun dun…Alexis Bellino (what?) all accompanied Tammy on her trek to find the perfect gown. I'm sure that was fun!
Well, Gretchen Christine is quite the fair-weather friend isn’t she? So, she arrives at Alexis Bellino‘s latest rent-a-mcmansion and plops her Gretchen Christine handbag on the counter and starts doing the QVC descriptor hands over the intricately designed leatherette flower, while Lex oooohhhs and aaaahhhs. This is taking the Bravo Home Shopping Network a touch too far. Quick question: Anybody out there sporting one of those jalopies? Yeah, didn’t think so!
The Real Housewives of Bravo walked the runway as this years A-List awards and below is a gallery of the 13 housewives who walked. The housewife who gets the most fan votes wins a $10,000 cash prize for a charity of their choice.
Who Looked The Best Out of All The Housewives?
My favorite looks of the night surprisingly go to Kim Zolciak and Gretchen Rossi.
