Anyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County knows that Kelly Dodd does not hold back when she has a drink or two in her. Hell, she doesn’t hold back when she’s dead sober. This season Kelly managed to be to strike that perfect balance of being a “tell it like it is” person and someone who is likable and enjoyable to watch.
Now that the worst season in RHOC history is over and the reunion episodes have aired, Kelly is spilling all of the details on what really went down behind the scenes. She gets into why she didn’t go with Vicki Gunvalson to the Iceland hospital, why production had no idea Kelly was going to be at The Quiet Woman the night Shannon Beador threw a full plate of food at her, and which cast members need to get the boot next season.
Despite her combative attitude toward Shannon Beador and Meghan Edmonds, Lydia claims that she “went into the reunion optimistic.” She added, “I didn’t want to expect fighting and drama. I was hoping to talk about differences and hopefully move forward and make strides in friendships.”
According to Peggy, Meghan Edmonds needs to back off the attacks on Lydia McLaughlin. She expresses her outrage at Meghan questioning Lydia’s religious beliefs: “There are some topics that are off limits and another person’s faith should be one of them. Why would you dare attack someone’s faith?”
The first part of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion was shockingly real as the ladies discussed broken marriages and motherhood. Shannon Beador finally stopped shrieking “WOOOOWWWWW! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! A VOW RENEWAL!” and quit convincing herself that David loves her. Which has always been the real joke. I mean, it’s been over for years – vow renewal and all – but Shannon finally accepted it and moved out. Addendum: David finally kicked her out.
I mean it’s not like anyone believed this happy re-united love story of David and Shannon, although she certainly thought they were this inspiration to us all, but it’s still sad to see Shannon processing everything. Clearly she never saw it coming, which is the saddest thing of all.
The other hot topic was whether Jesus ate Lydia McLaughlin‘s brain, thus making her poisoned by a fear of drag queens. OK, it wasn’t quite that dramatic unless you’re Meghan Edmonds.
Did Peggy Sulahian save this Real Housewives of Orange County season by offending everyone (the cast members and the viewers) at the end of the Iceland trip? For the most part the fans can agree on two things: this season has been disappointing and Peggy needs to go. Nevertheless, she did make that last episode pretty exciting- even though she crossed boundaries more than once.
She said that Shannon Beador’shusband isn’t loyal to her and she called out Meghan Edmonds’mothering abilities when she talked about her baby crying. She even made Lydia McLaughlinlate for a dinner that she planned and intended to host. Peggy offended everyone and she was the one who left the trip.
After her strange video “footage” and behavior in Iceland, Peggy Sulahian is trying in vain to dig herself out of a pretty deep hole in her blog this week.
The Real Housewives Of Orange County newcomer still doesn’t seem to understand the basic tenets of the show she’s on though – namely, that (sometimes) you need to out-yell the women around you to make your point! Peggy can’t even seem to explain herself clearly, however. And it’s doing her no favors.
