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.
Peggy gushed over Meghan King‘s candle party. She is also trying to understand why the women seem perplexed over her “pampered princess” life. Peggy feels if she was a man, nobody would question it one bit. “The launch party was beautiful and styled to perfection. Every detail was attended to, and it looked beautiful, as did so many of the guests. Everyone was dressed up and stunning. As the evening continued, Kelly brought to my attention (again) the fact that I am a pampered princess. What can I say — I am! I don’t understand why they are taken aback by it. Haven’t you seen a woman who is cared for? It isn’t just that. Yes, I enjoy the finer things in life, but I also worked for them. If I was a man, would people mention it so much? And in this time, my world was confined to that which I needed to focus on: my family and our company. I stand with my husband. We work together. Our lives have been our children, the business, our families, and our marriage! These have kept me busy for a long time. Not until recently have I had time for other endeavors. I focused on the charities with my children’s schools and our community. But with all the changes occurring in our lives, things have changed. So now, I’m on to the next phase of my life.”
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.
Kelly jokes, “When Peggy made her grand entrance in Lydia [McLaughlin’s] room before dinner, I couldn’t help but laugh. Her shirt says ‘WHATEVER’ but her face screams ‘HIGH MAINTENANCE.’ She lets Lydia know right off the bat that she’s cold, she’s starving, she’s tired…and Lydia, being the gracious host she is, scrambles to make sure Peggy is comfortable. It’s like watching Smithers and Mr. Burns on The Simpsons. And just like Monty Burns, Peggy is ready to release the hounds.”
Peggy Sulahian is just kind of just the worst, isn’t she? Maybe she’s a nice person, and she seemed OK at her Armenian anniversary party, but as soon as you take the Diko away from Peggy she turns into a judgmental, overbearing, clueless buzzkill intent to smother the fun out of any party with her nonsensical ramblings. Even a Viking send-off. I don’t want to be mean, but perhaps Bravo needs to issue ‘Funness’ qualifying exams.
There were men in fair isle sweaters serenading the ladies, then fighting over the amorphous blondes (Shannon Beador is convinced it’s her because Vikings “like a girl with a lil meat on her bones,” but would Shannon really touch whale blubber? I feel like it’s not very holistic…). But anyway, there were men doing all this for all of them, and in the middle of it all Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson were hugging and kissing like it was 2010, and Vicki even apologized to Shannon – more on that in a bit – then in walked Peggy, wearing a blood red caftan, and out for blood! She ruined the whole thing. Again.
