Real Housewives of Orange County

Vicki Gunvalson celebrates Birthday

Last week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County was pretty uneventful. The only thing that happened is that everyone surprised Shannon Beador for her birthday, and then David surprise reaffirmed his re-love with Shannon by making her re-wife him. Then mostly everyone ate cake. And Shannon is still sorry she wore that dress. 

This week’s episode, however, will be much more insane! Tonight Vicki Gunvalson celebrates her birthday with a spa weekend, but the Woo Hoos turn into Uh-Ohs when Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd get into it at a deluxe resort after Kelly insults Heather Dubrow.

Shannon Beador blog

Aside from that never-ending ’70s party drama with Kelly Dodd, Shannon Beador is really killing it these days. Shannon is on track with recent weight loss and aside from that, her life is really on the upswing.  Her marriage is back on track, her husband David Beador planned a surprise birthday party and vow renewal for her. It really is her time.

Everyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County knows that Shannon is very serious about her health and fitness (although not as hardcore as Tamra!), so it makes sense so she is definitely someone I trust when it comes to weight loss tips.

Shannon and David vow renewal

Weirdly enough, the last Real Housewives of Orange County episode did not have an ounce of drama and it was actually very entertaining and compelling. Sorry to be lame, but I was actually very moved by the surprise birthday party and wedding vow renewal that David Beador planned for Shannon Beador.

Everything about it seemed very genuine and it was so nice to see how far these two have come as a couple and I was happy to have a break from the screaming matches we’ve become accustomed to at all of the social gatherings that have gone down during this season’s episodes. And I am sure that Shannon agrees with that sentiment.

Vicki and Kelly bond

Look at Vicki Gunvalson seeing the writing on the wall – or is that the karma in the 9 lemons in a bowl? When it comes to her non-friendship with Shannon Beador, Vicki understands why she wasn’t invited to the surprise birthday party/vow renewal – it’s because Shannon was only ever her friend for TV. Kind of like Kelly Dodd. Oh never mind – apparently Kelly and Vicki are like for real friends

Vicktim doesn’t “blame David one bit” for not inviting her to Shannon’s party although being left-out does make Real Housewives Of Orange County‘s perpetual victim “sad that we are in this place.”

Shannon's Surprise

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County was about starting over, with new friends, new introspection, new babies, and new directions for the marriage that cut out the cancerous tumor and got brand spankin’ new cells! David officially decided that he really, really re-loves Shannon Beador for real this time and planned a surprise re-wedding. It was all very nice and lovely. 

The marital travails of Shannon and David do beg the question: Can one completely ignore the past and acquire a new beginning? Is it possible to start afresh with brand new red bottoms, unsullied from scuffing along sidewalks trailing behind your husband’s secret life? Like a facelift, can all the old sagging skin of our former misery be lifted up into a permanent smile; a renewed face to face a renewed future?

After the explosive dinner last week on The Real Housewives of Orange County, things will settle down a bit tonight. Tamra Judge promises that tonight’s episode is going to be sunshine and rainbows and birthday cake. And no c-words.

She shared the photo above of Shannon Beador and her family and claims, “Tonight There will be No fighting going on. Tonight’s #RHOC IS all about love and surprises for my friend @shannonbeador.”

Vicki Gunvalson and Jeana Keough Reconnect

As a faithful Real Housewives of Orange County viewer, I often miss the old days of the first couple of seasons.

The Real Housewives franchise wasn’t a “thing” yet, and I felt like I was getting a behind-the-scenes glimpse into a private Orange County community. Another aspect that I miss about the way RHOC used to be is original Housewife Jeana Keough. She was the original shit stirrer and I love her for it. I was such a fan of her kids and their drama. Sure, Jeana appears on the show from time to time, but that’s just not the same. Now Jeana is speaking out about her time on RHOC and why she left the show.

Kelly Dodd

Before I decided how I felt about the Real Housewives of Orange County new girl Kelly Dodd, I fell in love with her house. I mean it’s absolutely amazing. Definitely my favorite of the RHOC homes – at least until Heather Dubrow’s mega mansion surfaces on the show.

So I’m vicariously sad that she put the house up for sale. I’m also curious about why she is selling it. According to the listing, she and her husband Michael Dodd bought the house for $3.575 million two years ago and have made some nice renovations, so I’m surprised that they are selling so soon.
