Last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County was like a community theater acting troupe doing a play about Real Housewives. The costumes were bad, the over-acting was worse, and no one was winning any Emmys, but damn if Tamra Judge wasn’t trying her hardest!
Can we just stop doing this whole Tamra and Vicki Gunvalson will be friends again thing? RHOC is trying so desperately to insist they both care, with all the fake tears and carrying on and hullabaloo over two women so emotionally divorced from each other they can’t even get angry convincingly. David BeadorLydia McLaughlin crawling on the stairs begging Shannon Beador to just. stop? Yep, that is my reaction to yet another episode of will they? Or won’t they? Can Tamicki ever be put back together again?
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.
If it wasn’t for the people who do the hair, makeup, and wardrobe styling, the Real Housewives that we love (and hate) would not be the same. So of course, the Housewives came together to celebrate the wedding for two of their go-to hair and makeup artists Julius Michaels and Arturo Ortiz.
Whether you love Shannon Beador or not, everyone has to admit that she is really doing the most to earn that orange. She really puts herself out there on Real Housewives of Orange County. She hasn’t been shy about her marital problems or her forty pound weight gain this season.
Instead of solely being applauded for her openness about her body, Shannon actually took a lot of heat for attributing the gain to stress caused by her nemesis Vicki Gunvalson. After apologizing for that comment a million times over, Shannon will (most likely) have to address it again when she films the RHOCreunion episodes. She will be ready for it though. She has lost some weight and she plans to lose even more before she reunites with the rest of the cast for the reunion.
Casting Peggy Sulahian for Real Housewives of Orange County seems like the most random choice. She didn’t know any of the women before joining the show and she doesn’t seem to have any grasp on what is going on between the women. It doesn’t make a lot of sense for her to be on this show.
Plus her “story line” for the last episode was going to the post office with her husband Diko Sulahianto mail an envelope for their daughter’s college applications. Why couldn’t she just put the envelope in her own mailbox at home? Isn’t her daughter applying online anyway? Is this really the best story line she could come up with?
And even worse, Kelly did all of this to try and sell the idea that Vicki Gunvalson isn’t responsible for the mean and erroneous things she says. Dang does it stab me in the heart to have to even loosely defend Tamra Judge on anything (but I’m doing this for Eddie you guys! It’s like my version of bathroom porn, or something).
Poor Vicki Gunvalson. She wants to be a good friend and get along with all the girls so they can have a good old fashioned whoop it up time, until she invites scandalous gossip mongers to her birthday party, then she’s all “Tell me more!”
Vicki started off on the right foot by asking Tamra Judge to coffee. She ended up in the wrong red dress when she continued to facilitate inappropriate speculation about Eddie Judge’s life. Vicki needs Spanx for her mouth, as well as for her red dress.
“When I decided to call Tamra to ask her to go get coffee it was because I’m tired of the fighting and I wanted to make amends. She has been doing everything she can to alienate me with my friends. We weren’t even speaking when Kelly and I talked about it. I don’t know why she can’t let it go and move on,” Vicki complains. Cause: accountability!
