I felt so awkward watching the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. As much as I could tell that Shannon Beador’s mother-in-law loves her grand kids, it was definitely in poor taste for her to shit talk Shannon to Kelly Dodd and Tamra Judge – both of whom she had just met that day. It made an already tense situation even worse for the family. Also, it was bad timing for Kelly, who just finally found herself on good terms with Shannon.
It is obvious that Kelly tried hard to calm down the situation and to comfort the mother-in-law, assuring her that Shannon has no animosity, but the woman was totally out of control. She caused a lot of unnecessary drama and put Kelly in an awkward spot in her already-fragile friendship with Shannon.
Yikes was last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County a mess! We all know Bravo loves a family drama, but David’s mother-in-law covertly, sniper from the side-style, attacking Shannon Beadorwhile roaming the crowd at a place called The Blue Beet during her granddaughters’ rock star debut… Well, even I’m shocked!
There was a lot of ridiculous this episode. Vicki Gunvalson being utterly baffled that her children consider her a high-maintenance nightmare? Ridiculous! Tamra Judge truly believing herself a ‘peacemaker’. RIDICULOUS! Shannon micro-mom-aging her preteen daughters rock rehearsal, then taking OVER the microphone during practice to demonstrate for them. Ridiculous!
Get your airplane sick bags out, people. Or you might want to set your DVR (so you can fast forward) because tonight on The Real Housewives of Orange County we’re going to be rehashing (for the 12 millionth time!) David Beador’s AFFAIR!!!!
Just when you think we’ve finally put this this storyline to bed with the “closure” of a vow renewal and a second honeymoon, that damned A word sneaks back up on us!! On tonight’s episode David’s family shows up to watch the Beador girls perform for the first time and they say some hurtful things about Shannon– basically blaming her for David’s cheating.
Meghan starts off by standing by her initial reaction of not rushing over to the hospital by Vicki. “I’ve been getting a lot of backlash over the last two weeks for not visiting Vicki in the ER and while I do feel bad if I let anyone down, I still stand by my decision to not drive to the hospital. How many of you can honestly say if you were in my shoes, you would drop everything and rush to the ER? If Vicki had been admitted to the hospital, it would have been a completely different situation, but that wasn’t the case. I was texting her throughout the couple hours she was in the ER to make sure she was alright. If Vicki wanted me there, she would’ve have said so while I was texting her. She didn’t let me know that she needed clothes or a ride home while we were texting either.”
On last night’s season 9 finale of Flipping Out, it was the end of one era and the beginning of another. As Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward say goodbye to Zoila Chavez living with them, they make room for the new life who will be joining them all too soon. When Jeff and Gage see their daughter move on an ultrasound, that new era becomes more of a reality than ever.
Despite these emotional transitions, Jeff and the gang must still keep up their hustle. So they take a job with Real Housewives of Orange County star (and close friend of Jeff’s) Shannon Beador to decorate her new home. And her budget is HUGE!
Oh how the tide has changed. Vicki Gunvalson started out this season as public enemy number one on Real Housewives of Orange County. Now that Vicki got in that scary dune buggy accident, she actually has a valid reason to play the victim. Not only that, but it can also be argued that she has a legitimate reason to come after Shannon Beador now after her less than caring reaction to Vicki’s hospitalization.
