Like every other franchise, the ladies of the Real Housewives of Orange County know a little something about cattiness (I’m looking at you Tamra Judge), whininess (ahem, Shannon Beador), and alliance shifting. If you had told me after that Quiet Woman fiasco that Shannon and Kelly Dodd would be thick as thieves a few episodes later, I would have called you crazy! Yet poor OG Vicki Gunvalson remains outside the circle of friendship with Kelly and Lydia McLaughlin crossing over to her side of the playground for a cocktail…or colonics. Also, am I the only one who thought that was way much, even for Andy Cohen?
And then there’s newcomer Peggy Sulahian who has a sharp tongue, a fierce closet (and garage), and not the best grasp of common sayings despite majoring in English in college. Add in the women’s confusion over her breast cancer and her motivation for getting a double mastectomy (as if it is anyone’s flipping business!), and Peggy is ripe for hazing. However, she’s no shrinking violet with this group of yahoos.
Tamra Judge wasn’t a big part of the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, which fell over the Easter holiday. She explains her absence,”We were in the desert camping with family and friends, which is why you didn’t see much of me this episode.” But that doesn’t mean she won’t have opinions to share about the happenings of this episode.
In her blog she shares that she can’t see why Lydia McLaughlin was so upset over not being invited to dinner, “Let’s get one thing straight — I was totally joking when I told Lydia that Shannon invited everyone. It was one of those dinners that just happened. The Farmhouse is a new restaurant in Newport, and most of us had not been there. I’m not really the type of person that gets upset if I’m not invited to every lunch, dinner or party, so I don’t understand why Lydia was mad.”
It would not be at all shocking if Peggy Sulahian wasn’t asked to return to Real Housewives of Orange County next season. She didn’t know any of the other cast members prior to joining the show. She doesn’t seem to get understand any English idiom, even though she used the phrase “out of left field” herself before saying that she didn’t know what it meant. I could go on and on, but it’s basically a total misfire.
Sure, Peggy seems like a nice enough person, but she just doesn’t seem to be cut out for the Housewives drama. Someone accused her of getting in “the middle” of an argument between Vicki Gunvalsonand Tamra Judge and she corrected them in the most literal way possible: by saying that she was standing on the side. This woman just doesn’t get it. She seems relatively harmless and honestly seeing her on Watch What Happens Live made me want to give her a hug more than anything just because she is in way over her head.
Here’s a mystery for you: why, in the middle of all the Real Housewives Of Orange County‘s scenes about scheming and ball removal was there a lovely bucolic montage of the ladies celebrating Easter? Is it because, as Tamra Judge, waxed insanely, they’re all “sisters in Christ.” Yeah, keep telling yourself that, sister.
Anyway, Lydia McLaughlin owns a boat and therefore she will throw a party for her husband’s balls on said boat. Cause “balls voyage” – get it?! Where in sam hell did little miss prissy bible arise at that one?
Before getting on the official party boat, Lydia and Doug, all decked out in their finery, take a cruise around the harbor with a hot skipper. Unlike Gilligan’s Island no one got lost on a three-hour tour, but if they had, they could’ve build a life raft out of Tamra’s earrings and used Meghan Edmonds‘ earrings to phone home!
The whole country was saddened by the news of the mass shooting in Las Vegas at the Jason Aldean concert last night. With such a high death toll, there are so many people that were friends and families of the victims.
Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Meghan Edmonds came close to being one of those people when her step daughter Hayley was 0ne of the fans at the Jason Aldean concert during the shooting. Thankfully Hayley is safe and sound, but Meghan and Jim Edmonds came very close to experiencing the loss that fifty plus families have as a result of that act of horrific violence.
She shares, “This episode was frustrating for me to watch because Shannon is telling her side of the story of what transpired between us at the dinner with the girls and it is quite different than mine.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan Edmonds is hanging up her investigative hat and leaving the medical record digging to someone else for once. In this week’s episode reflection, Meghan touched on her desire for a drama-free season, her communication issues with Peggy Sulahian and more.
Don’t call Meghan shit stirrer, as she claims to be trying really hard to avoid drama at all costs. Pinky swear. “I’ve seen all of your tweets and comments over the last couple weeks and I know a lot of you think I’ve been trying to stir the pot, especially when it came to my fight with Kelly. But remember earlier in the season when I said I wasn’t looking for any drama and didn’t want to stir anything up? I meant it! And I think this week’s episode clearly shows that. I’m all for taking the high road to avoid drama and put an end to petty fights.”
Vicki calls her co-stars childish for ripping on her diagnosis of influenza B. She shares, “I spent the week in bed, with Steve playing nurse. When I went to urgent care, the doctor diagnosed me with influenza B. I didn’t know there were different strains of influenza, it was something new to me.” She slams, “For those ladies to who mocked me, make fun of me and question if it was an A, B, or C was juvenile. They acted like a bunch of children in a school cafeteria, I was embarrassed for them.”
