Vicki Gunvalson son in law Ryan Culberson Marine Corps

Even though Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter Briana Culberson has become an honorary cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County at this point, the fans haven’t seen too much of her husband Ryan Culberson because he has been away with the Marine Corps. Now he is back and ready for some time with the fam.

After a tough start with Briana and Ryan getting married out of nowhere, Vicki getting upset that the family temporarily left Orange County for Oklahoma, and that random disagreement with Lydia McLaughlin’s mom, Vicki has grown to love her son-in-law and she seems to pretty pumped that he is back.

Meghan St. Patty's Day Makeup

Now that she’s actually back in the mix with (some of) the ladies of The Real Housewives Of Orange County, Meghan Edmonds has a front row seat to the shifting alliances and drama that are plaguing this group. But this week offered up a surprising moment between Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd, which Meghan admits she was shocked to witness.

Before discussing that St. Patrick’s Day miracle, Meghan celebrates the idea of throwing herself back into the modeling world, even if it is somewhat of a pipe dream. She jokes, “It’s fun to (pretend to) be a model sometimes and for me, it’s so important for my mental health to work and play outside the home.”

Real Housewives Awards

Bravo is bringing back the Real Housewives Awards for the fourth year in a row. This time, the ladies from across the franchise will compete for fans’ votes in various categories within the back-to-school theme.

Fortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which is nice. Unfortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which means that many of the nominations do not make sense. Nevertheless, the fandom will (hopefully) make the right decisions. Either way you slice it, nominating every housewife is a good way to ensure that a lot of them show up when the awards are handed out. So at least that’s good.

Meghan St. Patty's Day Makeup

A leprechaun on Real Housewives of Orange County finds no luck at the end of his rainbow. Instead he finds Shannon Beador‘s awful green sequined shirt and equally awful marriage, or Vicki Gunvalson seeing green that friendship insurance doesn’t exist, and Tamra Judge‘s judgement!

Tamra is reeling from her ‘argument’ with Peggy Sulahianbecause Tamra feels ‘attacked’ by Peggy. This attacking consisted of Peggy sticking her resting bitch face (or is that just Botox overdose?) into Tamra’s issues with Vicki and suggesting, that perhaps, just perhaps, Tamra should practice what she preaches and move on. In response Tamra decided Peggy could never be her friend. #Adulting

At CUT-A-BITCH Fitness (propel your rage into Booty By Bible!), Tamra is training for a Spartan Race. While wearing a Charo ponytail that is just so naturally how her hair looks, she complains that Peggy is a judgmental bitch who doesn’t understand her deep and meaningful non-relationship with Vicki. Peggy apparently does understand Tamra’s BS, though!

Since she’s gotten back into the mix on The Real Housewives Of Orange County, Meghan Edmonds has been carefully aligning herself with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador – no surprise to anyone. Except, perhaps, to newcomer Peggy Sulahian, who perpetually has no idea what’s going on, nor what show she signed up for.

In her blog this week, Meghan calls Peggy out for sticking her nose into business she knows nothing about, namely anything involving Vicki Gunvalson. Before Meghan breaks that situation down, she takes some time to celebrate positive ventures, including her “personal care line” called The King Collection, by K.Hall Designs. “I’m so passionate about my new collection and all of my work endeavors, so I know exactly how Shannon feels when she is talking about opening up a restaurant. She’s so excited to finally be living out her dream and I can’t wait to see the final outcome!”

Tamra Feuds With Peggy

Once Tamra Judge realized that new Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Peggy Sulahian was fond of Vicki Gunvalson, she made it clear that Peggy needed to switch sides if they were going to be friends. By that I mean she literally asked, “Do you want to be friends?” during the last episode when she was discussing her drama with Peggy.

Even though Peggy has zero bonds with anyone in the cast coming into this show, she honestly does have a point about them dwelling on the same issues forever and ever. Then again, she clearly hasn’t seen this show since the crux of Real Housewives is drudging up issues from the past over and over again. Not only that, but it’s just such a dicey situation with tough accusations and Peggy has no idea what she’s talking about since she didn’t know any of these people before joining the cast. She didn’t even watch the show beforehand.

Shannon at Lydia's Magazine Launch

I’m pretty sure that Shannon Beador has said that she’s “done” with Vicki Gunvalson and wants nothing to do with her at least once during every Real Housewives of Orange County episode this season. On one hand, that’s completely understandable given all the shit that’s gone down between them. On the other hand, she could leave the show if she really wants to avoid Vicki.

Fortunately for Shannon, this last episode was way better for her than the first few from this season. Throwing a plate full of food at a restaurant and getting into a screaming match at a toddler’s birthday party were not the best looks for her, so I don’t blame her for chilling out a little bit after all that went down.

Peggy Grabs Meghan's Lips

Even though it was reported everywhere that Meghan Edmonds would not be returning to Real Housewives of Orange County this season, she is back. She didn’t interact with any other cast members for the first three episodes, but she is back and even she thinks this season is boring.

And that is something most of us can agree on. Minus Shannon Beador’s iconic plate toss, this season has been a total snooze. Hopefully it picks up.
