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.
This story line with Meghan Edmonds and Kelly Dodd arguing over a text message conversation that happened months before this Real Housewives of Orange Countyseason started filming is dragging out for way too long. Unfortunately, there really isn’t much else happening at this point. Fortunately, the preview for the rest of the season looks pretty promising.
The fans have to wait and see how the rest of the episodes play out. While everyone is really waiting for Vicki Gunvalson to go at it with Tamra Judgeand Shannon Beador, we are stuck with this random argument with Meghan and Kelly.
Even though Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson haven’t appeared on screen together at all this season, they sure are talking about each other a lot. If you were playing a drinking game with a rule to drink every single time they mention each other’s name, you would be wasted pretty quickly.
During the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra talked about something very important: her life as an “erased parent” in a speech at a gala for other parents going through something similar.
