Nevertheless, I really appreciated Peggy trying to lighten the mood by making comments about the food and innocently trying to eat. I could not help laughing, but no one in the scene with her seemed to be paying attention to her at all.
Lydia is the one who invited Kelly to show up. She also seemed so shocked when Kelly arrived and claimed to be embarrassed by the incident as if she didn’t know what show she was on. Now, Lydia is standing up for herself after a pretty questionable episode.
Some moments were genuinely cringe worthy and some of the jabs went too far, but that plate throw was absolutely everything. Maybe there’s something wrong with me for being so entertained, but whatever. At least I’m being honest.
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).
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!
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.”
