Lydia McLaughlin

At this point, Tamra Judge seems like a different person after her newfound Christianity. Instead of being the instigator, she is really trying when it comes to this peacemaker role – minus hating on eternal frienemy Vicki Gunvalson whenever possible, but that’s basically a rite of passage on Real Housewives of Orange County.

Still, she was calm, cool, and collected during that instantly infamous dinner at The Quiet Woman when Shannon Beador threw a plate (full of food, mind you), and she was even polite and cordial toward Kelly Dodd (who she cannot stand).

For the most part, Vicki Gunvalson stayed out of the drama during the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. She wasn’t involved in anything that went down at the restaurant, The Quiet Woman, but her name was in everyone’s mouths, as per usual.

For once, Vicki doesn’t have to defend herself since she wasn’t involved in the actual controversy this time, but she did so anyway.

Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen - Season 14

Real Housewives Of Orange County has no ‘quiet women’ – especially not Lydia McLaughlin who ‘secretly’ invited/not-invited Kelly Dodd to dinner at The Hysterical Shrieking Insane Quiet Woman with Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge. And surprise-not-surprise: Kelly showed up, provoking a dieting-not-dieting Shannon to fling her plate, flip Kelly off, and get flipping thrown out

Shannon and Tamra didn’t know Lydia had been scheming-not-scheming by inviting Kelly until the episode aired, and now they’re calling out her “pot stirring” antics. For some reason Meghan Edmonds is involving herself, because that’s what Meghanny Drew, Girl Detective does – she gets to the bottom of drama! 

Kelly & Shannon argue in the bathroom

That last Real Housewives of Orange County episode was epic. Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd going at it in the restaurant was a shit show and a half. The part that is so strange to me though is that Lydia McLaughlin is actually the one who invited Kelly to the restaurant, yet Shannon is mad at Kelly for “ambushing” her. Lydia could have/should have given Shannon a heads up about the invite.

Now Lydia is playing the innocent card (yet again) wondering why Shannon went off on Kelly for innocently walking into the bathroom and why Kelly took it way too far by telling her to “keep eating.”

Shannon flips Kelly Off

Last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County was like getting food poisoning at a BBQ thrown by a person you cannot stand, but whose party you have to attend because they’re related to your significant other. Basically it was like all of Shannon Beador‘s Thanksgivings – saddled to David and his dour mother who possibly put Ex-Lax in the cranberries she pretended to make from scratch. But it wasn’t just the food that was poisoned last night – there were all sorts of hellish encounters, and no one’s saintly patience was tested more than Shannon’s! Oh Shannon – can we take you nowhere without an incident or scene? Recounting your Housewives history, the answer, thankfully, is NO!

There is probably no one who loves a Real Housewives “dinner from hell” more than I do. In fact, I quit throwing dinner parties because mine are never terrible enough. It’s probably because I don’t have enough psychic friends, or frenemies who despise each other, or friends going through terrible personal dramas they want to talk about on TV, but refuse to let anyone else discuss. No one has ever thrown a plate full of steak at me either. Maybe I should just give up dinner altogether. I should also probably avoid my friends’ children’s birthday parties because they’re just the usual kids running around and eating too much cake. No middle-aged women argue, storm off, or have histrionic meltdowns over semantics. 

Meghan apologizes for Glamis

So far this season, Meghan Edmonds has had zero drama with the rest of the Real Housewives of Orange County ladies. That’s because the only scenes she’s filmed have been with her husband and baby, but it’s good for staying out of the fray and still collecting that Bravo paycheck.

Even though Meghan has stayed away from the controversy, she did watch the last episode and she has plenty of opinions about everything that has gone down.

Say what you want about Shannon Beador, but no one can dispute that she really puts herself out there. From revealing her husband David Beador’s affair, to taking her shirt off for a weigh in, Shannon shares it all on Real Housewives of Orange County– especially her dislike for enemy Vicki Gunvalson.

The last episode was a tough look for Shannon and things look even crazier tonight with Shannon screaming at Kelly Dodd in a restaurant- which is something I am so pumped to see. Now Shannon is defending herself after arguing with Lydia McLaughlin at Tamra Judge’s granddaughter’s birthday party (again) and takes ownership for her weight gain.
