The one thing I learned is that Vicki Gunvalson really needs to consider a career in politics because she can twist words and spin like no other. It’s rather impressive in some bizarro universe led by Andy Cohen and morality policed by Heather Dubrow.
The reunion starts with a ride back in time to Glamis. The ladies watch the ATV flip time and time again. Just so you know… Heather escaped injury because she even does car accidents perfectly and better than you.
Meghan shared in her Bravo blog that she’s happy for viewers to see her and Jim they way they really are for once. “Part One of the reunion was pretty low-key, but now Part Two has started to dive into some more of the drama! Yikes! The best part about this week was that Jimmy joined me on the couch and I’m really glad the audience got to see a more relaxed and engaging side of my husband and our marriage. It’s kind of crazy to see us portrayed the way we actually are every day for the first time on TV!”
Shannon acknowledged that part one of the reunion wasn’t all that juicy, “The bottom line is, there was a lot of ground to cover, so you are going to see the most tame stuff [first]. Parts two and three of the reunion are going to be crazy.” A follower insinuated that Shannon, Heather, Meghan, and Tamra planned to ambush Vicki at the reunion. “There’s no planned ambush,” she insisted. “Everyone went in there saying their truth. When you see the reunion parts two and three you’re going to be blown away. It’s mind blowing.”
As per usual, there are conflicting reports about what the reunion will reveal. Shannon insists we “will see the truth” and “it’s clear as a bell.” However, Vicki says, “They wanted me to admit something that wasn’t the truth and I wasn’t going to. You’ll find out.” Clear as mud, considering Shannon’s truth and Vicki’s truth could NOT be further apart. Look below for a breakdown of the three-part reunion and the much-anticipated sneak peek.
Tamra Barney had quite a year – she’s being called out and ripped open for her crappy treatment of friends and co-stars alike. And in retaliation, she got slaughtered by three well-spoken broads who weren’t about to be silenced. The days of nobody backing crazy into a corner are over – and when everyone says you’re dead… But that doesn’t mean Tamra is remorseful or apologetic!
Lizzie Rovsek is forevermore “hurt” that Tamra ditched her birthday. Even though Tamra like kinda said she was sorry by giving Lizzie a one-year membership to CUT Fitness. She probably rescinded it so Eddie couldn’t ogle Lizzie in a sports bra. Tamra doesn’t seem to understand people having hurt feelings, but later she’ll use the buzz word of the season when she realizes it gets you attention – and sometimes sympathy.
Lizzie asked her advice on Twitter the night before, tweeting, “Off to LaLaLand to tape the RHOC reunion tomorrow. Any good advice for my first reunion? Besides #TRUTH??” After filming, Lizzie declared, “I told the truth and was true to myself.” I honestly believe her!
Finally. Part one of theReal Housewives of the Orange Countyreunion is upon us. I am almost embarrassed to admit how much I have been looking forward to this reunion. Not only does it signal the end of a (very long) season, but with these ladies (and I use that term loosely), there is sure to be some juicy drama. Right off the bat, there are two separate sofas, one for each clique. The legs are shinier and the fake hair is rampant, with each housewife looking more plastic than the next.
Host Andy Cohen starts things off with a tame round of questions. Am I the only one who doesn’t care how Alexis pronounces “Am Ex” or who doesn’t feel the need to watch her awkwardly define “couture” YET AGAIN? Vicki reveals that she and Brianna hate the word “vagina” and prefer to call them pink parts. Oh yes. That is much better. Get to the good stuff, please.
Andy plays a montage of Tamra and Eddie’s make-out moments, culminating with the infamous bathtub sex scene. Some of Tamra’s drama with Simon is highlighted, and she tells Andy that they are weeks away from having their divorce finalized. Alexis passive aggressively makes a dig about how well Tamra’s children will know Eddie once they see that scene. Not one to shy away from confrontation, Tamra admits that a court order keeps her children from watching Bravo, so “what are you getting at, Alexis?” Alexis tries to hold her own by saying that her four-year-old knows how to use a remote control so it’s possible for Tamra’s kids to see it without her knowledge. I half expected Peggy to jump in to say that her daughter learned how to work a remote control at age two. Still on the attack, Tamra reminds Alexis about how her kids fell into a pool while strapped into their stroller while mommy and daddy were taking shots. So, is she saying they are both up for Mother of the Year? And so it begins…

It’s a confrontations galore as the housewives hash things out with one another. At one point, Tamra Barney walks off the stage after getting into it with Slade Smileywho accuses her of being er let’s say ‘loose.’ “You are the lowest form of sh*t in the world,” says Tamra before storming off. Yes Slade was present at the reunion as he was the only guy invited to join the ladies on stage.
Vicki Gunvalson’s estranged husbandDonn Gunvalson also appears on the reunion via a taped clip. In the video, Donn is none too happy with Vicki. “I don’t think the way this went down was treated with class or dignity,” says Donn.
The biggest showdown seems to be between Tamra and Gretchen Rossi. Tamra slams Gretchen, accusing her once again of cheating on her dying fiance Jeff Beitzel. “You were sleeping with another guy while your fiancé was dying,” she says to Gretchen.
Gretchen retorts, “No I wasn’t Tamra. Stop talking out your *ss about everybody’s lives.”
Also, Alexis and Peggy get into it over Jim (Peggy used to date Jim), Vicki gets into it with Alexis, while Jeana Keough makes an appearance.
The reunion will air in two parts with part 1 airing on June 12. The preview clip is below
