As of now, Peggy Sulahian has contributed two things to Real Housewives of Orange County: her confusion about idioms and pinching Meghan Edmonds’ lips shut. Not only that, but the rest of the cast is still so caught up in drama from previous seasons that no one even found Peggy grabbing Meghan’s mouth- the one outrageous thing Peggy has done so far- to be remotely offensive .
Two episodes ago, Peggy’s major story line was a drive to mail a letter…. instead of just walking down the driveway to her own mailbox. This week, she sat on the side while the rest of the ladies went at it during Kelly Dodd’s party before she tried to shade Shannon Beador by saying she is “something else.” Of course that got Shannon a little bit riled up, but she ended up getting into a screaming match with Lydia McLaughlin…. again.
The only thing funnier than a group of women wearing hashtag team t-shirts is Vicki Gunvalson still trying to maintain her innocence – in the cancer lies, the Eddie Judge lies, the general lies of a lying liar…you name it! While she may be the OG of the OC, this Real Housewives of Orange County star apparently has only one defense in her arsenal: Deny, deny, deny. Hey – it’s worked for her with Andy Cohen so far! And in all fairness, it’s worked equally well for so-called arch nemesis Tamra Judge too.
“What a mess,” reflects Lydia, who initially had high hopes for the volleyball party. (Really? Is she new here?!) “The day started out really fun. Doug and I love the beach and are always excited for some fun in the sun. However, because of my coffee date with Tamra, I knew she and Vicki [Gunvalson] were at odds.” So, Lydia only gleaned this information from her lunch date with Tamra? We knew that Tamra and Vicki were at odds just from living on planet earth!
Why is Season 12 of Real Housewives of Orange County just a rehashing of the same arguments from Season 11 which was all about discussing the drama from Season 10? Isn’t it time to move on and get some fresh story lines? Apparently no one on the show thinks so. Vicki Gunvalson’s knowledge of the cancer scam is still a hot topic of debate. These rumors about Eddie Judge’s sexuality are a constant topic of conversation.
Now, there is even more focus on the Eddie gossip after Tamra Judge’s ex best friend Ricky Santana and her nemesis Gretchen Rossi showed up to Vicki’s birthday party. This resurgence of old faces was both vindictive and desperate. It is far fetched to believe that the conversation happened at random. The bad acting indicates that someone (most likely multiple people) orchestrated the gossip about Eddie in advance. Obviously Vicki denies this. Beyond that she’s even denying that she invited Ricky to the event in the first place. Thankfully Ricky has come through with some receipts. Watch out, Vicki.
Well, Tamra Judge has tried and tried again to give Vicki Gunvalson the opportunity to do right, but once again that didn’t happen. Things were instead inflamed – again – when Vicki invited Tamra’s ex-bestie Ricky to her party to fuel speculation about Eddie’s sexuality. Tamra insists she’s definitely DONE! hearing Vicki’s lies.
Really? Cause this season of Real Housewives Of Orange County is only half over and then there is the reunion… “Come on! These lies are getting ridiculous,” Tamra protests. “I’m a girl that gets over things in five minutes and gives many chances, but it’s time for me to move on. I can’t listen to her lies anymore. She’s so toxic and delusional, I just couldn’t deal with it.”
Shannon begins, “For the record, I would like to be clear, I do not try to control Tamra or tell her what to do. That is ridiculous.” Shannon claims she has told Tamra many times that she will support her no matter what she decides about her friendship with Vicki but that Tamra does NOT want to be suckered back into that toxic situation.
So, it didn’t seem like a coincidence that Tamra’s enemy Gretchen Rossi and Tamra’s ex best friend Rickyshowed up to Vicki’s birthday party and “just happen” to gossip about Eddie. It is very obvious that multiple people planned out that conversation ahead of time.
