Things begin with Tamra Barney telling Vicki Gunvalson about Ryan’s surprise engagement. Vicki understands given that Briana surprised eloped last season. If your children are always hiding something from you that’s probably a sign that they think you’re crazy.
However, quickly talk turns to TheShannon BeadorDilemna. Vicki is straight to the point with Tamra that she started causing all this drama and now is stepping back like ‘Don’t look at me! I didn’t do it!’ – and that Heather Dubrow is also being an instigator. Vicki thinks Heather needs to be knocked down a a notch or two to understand empathy. I am loving this equanimous Vicki. More of this please! Less of that rat’s nest on her head that she calls hair, however!
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 daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
Yesterday we reported that Vicki Gunvalson was hip to the fact that her former bestie, Tamra Judge, was doing nothing this season but stirring the drama pot. Well, today, Lizzie Rovsek says she absolutely agrees.
Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County everybody was having a meltdown. I swear Andy Cohen needs to have staff psychiatrists at these Housewives shoots!
We begin at Lizzie Rovsek‘s dinner party on the balcony of bitchery. Shannon Beador is over-whipped into a frenzy and Tamra Judge is making things worse by grabbing at her face and yelling under the guise of calming her down. Shannon became more agitated thinking Tamra’s bad Botox was contagious. “I was trying to restrain her,” huffs Tamra.
Finally David helps Shannon into her coat to escort her out of the party. I’m pretty sure he was planning to drive her to Cedars Mt. Sinai for the Britney Spears suite. Vicki Gunvalson runs outside to confront Shannon and it seemed genuine. She encouraged Shannon to just go home and not deal with this anymore today.
Lizzie asked her advice on Twitter the night before, tweeting, “Off to LaLaLand to tape the RHOC reunion tomorrow. Any good advice for my first reunion? Besides #TRUTH??” After filming, Lizzie declared, “I told the truth and was true to myself.” I honestly believe her!
Nothing about this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County shocked me. Until everyone opens their eyes and figures out that Tamra Barney is to blame for every single (ok, maybe not every single one, but pretty darn close) relationship problem in Orange County, it will be more of the same. Tamra lies, drama ensues, Tamra denies, rinse and repeat.
The newcomers, Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek, have Tamra‘s lying pot stirring ways figured out, but Heather Dubrow is forever stuck in her own self-righteous fantasy world. Heather’s too busy blowing everything out of proportion and bellyaching about Shannon “yelling” at her to see what Tamra has done. Le sigh.
In her blog, Shannon bemoaned, “It is nice to see Vicki have compassion for me. What is disturbing is Tamra not taking responsibility for starting all of this nonsense between Heather and I.” I, for one, am extremely disappointed that Vicki Gunvalson failed to call out the liarface this week. Vicki knew Tamra was lying – and she kept mum! Grrr!
Lizzie Rovsek tried to have an elegant dinner party for her classy TV friends, except she didn’t have any classy TV friends to invite so she just stuck with her co-stars. Lizzie decorated her parent’s beach house with a beautiful table setting and hired fire dancers to perform. Her husband Christian made a lovely toast, the food looked delicious, and the drinks stiff. But it was the company… oh it’s that bad company that gets you in trouble every time!
Before we get to another one of Bravo’s dinner parties from hell, lets backtrack. A Few Days Before…
After Shannon holds up dinner for hours and hours with a crying whining meltdown on the beach (I hope she didn't get sand in her eyes), over her marital discord, she and David agree to try and get along on the trip if David would agree to switch to organic tequila. Of course, in secret, David called the authorities and started the process for a 5150 psychiatric hold for Shannon. Then he chugged his tequila - and suddenly all Brooks Ayers' words of Hallmark wisdom (seriously how many Lifetime Movies does this guy watch?!) made sense. Brooks toasted to forgetting the past because we know he wants errrryone to forget his and they all headed to Andeles, Vicki's Mecca.
