Poor Vicki her love tank’s connected to her heart valve, her heart valve’s connected to that part of her brain that says ‘PAY ATTENTION TO ME! ME! ME! ME!” So she was vomiting and having heart palpitations while Peggy Sulahian and Kelly Dodd fought over who was better at caring for Vicki’s sputtering love tank.
Cat is out of the bag … and into Jim Edmonds? Rumors have always quietly swirled that when Meghan Edmonds started dating Jim, he was still married to his second wife Allison. Unfortunately, in a recent interview Kelly Dodd went ahead and gave credence to the allegations (everyone’s favorite word!) and straight-up accused Meghan of being Jim’s mistress! Um, so, when did these two start hating each other again?
Shannon shared the news with her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars today while filming the season 12 reunion. “It’s heartbreaking for me and my daughters that this is the road that had to be taken but it’s the only way,” Shannon told People. “I felt alone in my marriage. You can do what you can to keep your family together, but you have to have willing parties. You need two people to make a marriage work, and that wasn’t happening in our relationship.”
Who would have thought that Kelly Doddwould be the most reasonable and likable cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County(by far)!? She is the only one who has been consistently enjoyable to watch and she usually has some insightful commentary.
She stayed out of the fray during the group trip to Iceland during the last episode, but she had a lot to say about the boring excuses for story lines that we were subjected to “drama.”
In her blog for this week’s episode, Peggy describes the most frightening experience to date, and she’s not referring to Shannon’s bed head after a seventeen hour plane ride or even that fermented shark blob that had half her co-stars gagging up a lung. Before delving into the terrifying, Peggy focuses on the positive…and the obvious (read: traveling to Iceland from the OC, generally). She begins, “Our trip to Iceland began with a long plane ride. We were greeted with cold weather and in anticipation of Orange County girls being unprepared for the obvious, Lydia planned a shopping trip to head off any problems. Girls and shopping is a classic combination which can bring out the best in every situation. As such, Vicki and Tamra started to reconnect. You could see they had a bond. They understood each other and hopefully, things will get better.” Why yes, it is a long flight. And no, none of you packed appropriately.
Lydia shared in her Bravo blog, “The first night we arrived, Fridrik, our host, had planned an Icelandic dinner and drinks for us. Shannon and Tamra never texted me to say they weren’t coming. I totally understand that we had been traveling all day and night and if they wanted to stay in, no big deal. However, no one told me that.”
Normally, I’m all for any Real Housewives feud, but the issues between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge stopped entertaining me a long time ago. Their refusal to acknowledge each other – other than to bring up issues from YEARS ago without actually moving forward – has really fragmented the show. #NotMyRealHousewives.
I loved seeing the two of them giggling and being playful while they shopped for coats during the last episode in Iceland. It was also very awkward (yet low key entertaining) to see Shannon Beador‘s disapproval and discomfort in response to their interaction. The episode wasn’t all laughs and shopping for Vicki though. She had a serious medical scare at the end of it.
