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.
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.
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.
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 Daviddo 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?
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.
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.
