Real Housewives of Orange County

Tamra Judge & New Housewife Emily Simpson

The Season 13 premiere episode of Real Housewives of Orange County didn’t bless us with much other than tying up some loose ends from Season 12. Other than that, we did “meet” new Housewife Emily Simpson.

We also learned that she previously had a beef with Tamra Judge. It seemed like things were all good between them when the season started filming since she was introduced as a friend of Tamra’s. Emily also copped to some shady involvement with former Orange County Housewife and long-time Tamra hater Gretchen Rossi and Tamra’s ex-best friend Ricky. Does this mean that Gretchen and Ricky will make another scandalous cameo appearance this year? Or is Emily a loyal member of #TeamTamra? The jury is still out on that one.

Vicki Gunvalson & Steve Lodge Are Living Together; She Wants To Marry Him

The good news is that the first episode of Season 13 of Real Housewives of  Orange County was better than all of Season 12. The bad news is that it still wasn’t that great. Essentially nothing happened. Yes, Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and Kelly Dodd are all getting along these days and that’s monumental considering that Shannon and Tamra didn’t even want to film with Vicki last season.

Nevertheless, let’s just hope their willingness to film with each other means that it is more likely for drama to occur and that it’s not just a boring love fest all season. I’m all for the friendships, but friendships with some shade and an argument or two thrown in make for way better television.

Shannon Beador Discusses Post-Divorce Life & Season 13 Of Real Housewives Of Orange County

It is tough not feel for post-divorce Shannon Beador. She took off her wedding ring for the first time during the Season 13 premiere episode of Real Housewives of Orange County and was very open about her struggles since David Beador ended their marriage.

Other than that, there wasn’t a lot that happened during that first episode. In all honesty it just felt like a Season 12 epilogue more than a Season 13 premiere.

Kelly & Vicki

Real Housewives of Orange County is back for Season 13. The ladies are one episode down and in all honesty it wasn’t that interesting. Nevertheless, Kelly Dodd is teasing some major drama on the horizon.

Kelly was the only one we could count on last season for consistent entertainment, so let’s hope that she pulls through for the viewers this time around as well.

Andy Cohen Shades Vicki Gunvalson’s “New Face’; Tamra Judge Says Eddie Judge’s Heart Procedure Didn’t Work

It would be nice to say that Season 13 of Real Housewives of Orange County started out with a bang, but that sadly is not what happened. At all. After a dismally boring Season 12, the Season 13 premiere was just OK. Pretty much nothing happened, but let’s hope that the ladies are just warming up.

Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador were on their A-Game when they were Andy Cohen’s guests on Watch What Happens Live last night. Again, let’s just hope that’s a good sign of what to expect this season.

RHOC Premiere Recap

Last night brought lots of changes for the Real Housewives Of Orange County. Most importantly they’re all getting along! In a scary, even realistic kind of way. Which means something horrible is probably going to happen that sucks the whole of the Pacific Ocean into Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador‘s bodies so they can turn them into an epic tidal wave of hysterical tears. Am I excited about this prospect… I mean, yes and no.

Speaking of Shannon she has downsized in the divorce. Dreaded words there kids! So if you see a woman living under the freeway in a cardboard box featuring rococo mahogany legs, you will know it is Shannon! Terribly tragic. 

Real Housewives Of Orange County Season 12 Recap – Revisit All The Drama From Last Season!

Tonight we welcome Real Housewives Of Orange County back into our collective consciousness. I may be the lone one, but I’m excited! Before moving into new dramas let’s recap what happened last season!

Season 12 of Real Housewives Of Orange County certainly had its high points (Vicki Gunvalson‘s Blanket Jackson moment in Iceland) and low points (Peggy. Period.).

Lydia McLaughlin returned to use free advertising for the launch of her new magazine after a long hiatus to contemplating what Alexis Jesus would do as a Real Housewife, and Vicki remained – and remained on the outs with everyone. Heather Dubrow decided she didn’t want to expose her marriage to anymore speculative gossip and quit, so instead enter: Peggy Sulahian. Someone in casting was on Vicki’s Vodka that day!

Gretchen Rossi sued by Citibank for unpaid credit card bill

**See update below!** Is there another Real Housewives bankruptcy in the cards, or is Gretchen Rossi just not paying her bills? The former Real Housewives Of Orange County star has been sued by Citibank for an unpaid balance of $9,433.56.

Does Gretchen really not have $9k? Well, I guess she is supporting Slave Smiley – allegedly – so maybe not?! Apparently, Gretchen has defaulted on credit card payments going back to 2017, which is the last time she cut a check to Citibank and they’re tired of waiting for their money.
