Meghan Edmonds

Shannon Beador

Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County the little detective that can’t stop, Meghan Edmonds, decided it would be a great idea to host a party with a mystic named Michaela. You don’t need psychic powers to predict that this would go badly! Then to make matters worse they all left for Iceland – cause traveling to the ends of the earth with your enemies always turns out so swell!

What was Meghan hoping to find? Proof that Vicki  Gunvalson never loved Tamra at all? Or perhaps a reading on Peggy Sulahian‘s cancer scans? Or maybe what’s really inside Tamra Judge‘s six-pack core? All she found was a big old mess of Shannon Beador shrieking about David being the most trustworthy man alive while the Mystic watched open-mouthed.

Lydia McLaughlin has left us all confused this season. She’s been both the voice of reason and a total pot-stirrer who finds herself iced out, but she certainly never lacks for finding herself in the midst of drama.

The Real Housewives Of Orange County star warns that there is still plenty of craziness in store – especially once the cast lands in Iceland “I feel like this season finally really picks up and everybody is together and we leave the country together so there’s nowhere to hide, conversations have to happen,” Lydia shared. “People have to talk or express how they’re feeling about one another.”

Tamra Judge & Heather Dubrow Reconnect

It’s time for another Instagram Roundup featuring photos from all our fame-loving reality stars. Above, Tamra Judge reconnects with her former Real Housewives Of Orange County co-star Heather Dubrow. “Fun times with @heatherdubrow #pleasecomeback,” she begged.

Tamra previously complained that no one had seen Heather since she quit last season, and none of the RHOC ladies have been welcomed to Heather’s 24,000 square-foot mausoleum to good taste. Kelly Dodd dished that Heather’s friendships were only for the show and no one could stand her.

Kelly Dodd with Hookah

After a tough start during her first season Kelly Dodd has truly turned things around on Real Housewives of Orange County. She’s giving us the meme and gif-worthy arguments that we live for, but she’s not holding any long grudges. She has struck the perfect Housewife balance and she’s honestly the only one in this cast who has.

Everyone else refuses to interact with each other which makes it feel like I’m watching seven different TV shows spread out over an hour every Monday night. This was supposed to be the lead-in show for Dallas and the Texas women are blowing the OC out of the water this year. Thankfully they’re saving Monday night for the Housewives viewers. But anyway, this season is horrible aside from Kelly’s contributions.  Kelly is the only one who is socializing with every other cast member, she brings it with her own personal story lines, and her quotes. I never in a million years thought I would say this, but Kelly is the only reason this season is worth watching. I hope they turn things around, but they’ve spent every episode so far ignoring each other and talking about things that happened two seasons ago. Move on or get off the show.

Vicki sits down with Tamra

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County we saw a different side of Peggy Sulahian. A fun, light-hearted, yet conniving side! I think we were supposed to really care that Diko upset Shannon Beador in a game of karmatic husbands, but eh, I mostly care about Peggy’s recipes. But first, always but first, other stuff happened. And and that other stuff was another session of Will Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge ever be put back together again? (My magic hate ball says: NOOOOOOOOOO, NEVER, EVER, EVER – JUST F–KING STOP!).

Ugh Vicki and Tamra. Again. I feel like I’m contractually obligated to write about how they met for coffee at a subliminally named place called Patch, even though we know they won’t patch anything up.

Why is Real Housewives of Orange County a medical drama all of a sudden? From suspicions about cancer diagnoses to vaginal rejuvenation to vasectomies to colonics, this season is just all about the medical procedures… and it is a total snooze fest. What happened to the good old days of whooping it up at the bar and throwing wine in someone’s face? Let’s get back to things like that. Please.

The fixation with Peggy Sulahian’s mastectomy is still very much a thing and the RHOC ladies- and men- are asking a lot of questions about it.

Does Peggy have Resting Bitch Face?

Like every other franchise, the ladies of the Real Housewives of Orange County know a little something about cattiness (I’m looking at you Tamra Judge), whininess (ahem, Shannon Beador), and alliance shifting. If you had told me after that Quiet Woman fiasco that Shannon and Kelly Dodd would be thick as thieves a few episodes later, I would have called you crazy! Yet poor OG Vicki Gunvalson remains outside the circle of friendship with Kelly and Lydia McLaughlin crossing over to her side of the playground for a cocktail…or colonics. Also, am I the only one who thought that was way much, even for Andy Cohen?

And then there’s newcomer Peggy Sulahian who has a sharp tongue, a fierce closet (and garage), and not the best grasp of common sayings despite majoring in English in college. Add in the women’s confusion over her breast cancer and her motivation for getting a double mastectomy (as if it is anyone’s flipping business!), and Peggy is ripe for hazing. However, she’s no shrinking violet with this group of yahoos.

It would not be at all shocking if Peggy Sulahian wasn’t asked to return to Real Housewives of Orange County next season. She didn’t know any of the other cast members prior to joining the show. She doesn’t seem to get understand any English idiom, even though she used the phrase “out of left field” herself before saying that she didn’t know what it meant. I could go on and on, but it’s basically a total misfire.

Sure, Peggy seems like a nice enough person, but she just doesn’t seem to be cut out for the Housewives drama. Someone accused her of getting in “the middle” of an argument between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge and she corrected them in the most literal way possible: by saying that she was standing on the side. This woman just doesn’t get it. She seems relatively harmless and honestly seeing her on Watch What Happens Live made me want to give her a hug more than anything just because she is in way over her head.
