Real Housewives of Orange County

Meghan Edmonds rejects Shannon's invite

Meghan Edmonds main storyline on this week’s Real Housewives of Orange County was mainly comprised of her angst about moving again with a man who can barely tolerate her, her inability to continue a lame argument with Shannon Beador (despite acting like a 13-year old on the phone) and standing around looking awkward while Vicki Gunvalson was reeling from the terrible news that her mother had suddenly passed away. In her blog, Meghan discusses deep thoughts, like how “Moving sucks!” and her new found appreciation for “old lady” games. 

Reflecting on her 65th or so house relocation with hubby Jim Edmonds, Meghan shares, “Moving sucks! And watching this episode made me want to throw one of my empty boxes (from yet another move) at the television for minimizing the stress and overall terrible feelings that come with a move.” But, alas! Apparently Jimmy has seen the light about how hard poor wife #3 has it, what with her directing the packing and unpacking of his their property. “I know you hear me say that Jimmy doesn’t do any of the actual moving and that’s why he thinks it’s easy, well he didn’t up until we moved out of our four month rental. That was the first time he unpacked more than one box. And guess what, now he hates moving! Finally! You see him rummaging through a drawer, he wasn’t packing.”


Shannon Beador struggles to trust David

Shannon Beador has chosen to expose the rawest details of her marriage this season, but in light of Vicki Gunvalson getting the heartbreaking news of her mother’s passing on last night’s Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon is trying to express gratitude for what – and who – she has in life. In her blog this week, Shannon reflects on the petty drama she’s trying to squash with Meghan Edmonds, her sympathy for Vicki’s loss, and how she’s trying to move past David’s infidelity.   

“This is a very difficult episode to watch,” begins Shannon. “I can’t imagine how incredibly hard it is for Vicki to relive. It is just a reminder to us all that life is precious and that we should be grateful for every moment we have on this earth with our family.” And these precious moments should not be spent on insignificant arguments with thirsty newbie housewives. “We shouldn’t focus on petty things—which brings to me to my phone call with Meghan in this episode,” writes Shannon. 


Shannon Beador tries to extend the olive branch to Meghan

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County left me wondering about the blurred lines of real reality vs. reality TV appropriate as we witnessed Vicki Gunvalson reacting to the news that her mom had unexpectedly passed away

Of course, Vicki’s tragic news was preceded by petty dramas with clueless Meghan Edmonds, and interspersed with scenes of whooping it up over Bunco at Shannon Beador‘s house. It seems inappropriate to write a recap that encompasses both the tragic passing of a parent and nonsense over whether or not a party invite was shady. But alas, the powers that be over at Bravo have given me this incredible opportunity. (Sarcasm). 

At Meghan’s house, that’s not really Meghan’s house because Jimmy bought it and decorated it with one of his exes, they’re packing in preparation for a move. Apparently Meghan and Jimmy have moved 65 times in the last 6 minutes so I presume they’re high-class squatters and this is going to be a really interesting HGTV cross-over. Also, if you don’t really live anywhere – how have you amassed enough stuff for several junk drawers? Jimmy blames Meghan for the stuff. Because of course. 


Vicki Gunvalson

I’ve never been as emotionally moved as I was last night watching the Real Housewives of Orange County.  Watching as Vicki Gunvalson learned of the passing of her beloved mom, Joanne, was heartbreaking and something I hope we never have to watch a Housewife go through again.  For all of the cries of “fakery” on reality shows, I think this was one of the rawest moments we’ve seen. 

Vicki took to her Bravo blog to pay tribute to her mom.  And she also sat down with Andy Cohen to give a brief interview about her loss.  We’ve included that video down below.  Get your tissues before you watch it.  


The lawsuits surrounding the now defunct Vicki’s Vodka have lasted far longer than the company itself! Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers were investors in the company, which Vicki started with co-founder Robert Williamson III, but things went horribly awry. Don’t drink and do business deals, I suppose (and kid!)

The Real Housewives Of Orange County star has been battling the lawsuit for years, with Vicki and Robert going back and forth over Brooks involvement in their partnership. Robert even alleged that Brooks hired a hitman to try and take him out, but the embattled Brooks scored a huge victory when a Nevada Court Circuit judge has dismissed Robert’s suit as without merit.  


Meghan Edmonds

Not winning friends and influencing people so far on the Real Housewives of Orange County, new girl Meghan Edmonds is taking to her blog this week to defend herself against Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, and her so-called ally and mentor, Tamra Judge. She also explains why she didn’t invite Shannon to her JDRF party following their Napa argument. Apparently, it was all Jim Edmonds‘ doing. Huh? 

Beginning by reliving “Phone-Gate,” Meghan reflects that it was “so stupid and petty for Shannon to storm off on me like she did and make a scene in the Bello’s home. If Shannon reacted like an adult she would’ve swallowed her pride, apologized for unintentionally offending me, and explain she was caught off guard, the issue would have been laid to rest.” Yes, but then where would Meghan be? Left with no storyline? Meghan also rebuffs the idea that Bravo producers egged her on to start the drama. “There was no ambush as she described it unless she was recreating history in her own mind. What the cameras show was what happened. There was no prodding from production for me to talk to Shannon about this or to make the phone call in the first place, it was all my idea,” claims Meghan.


Heather & Terry Dubrow pose in NYC

Once Heather Dubrow decided to ditch her acting plans and join the Bravo Home Shopping Network, she’s checking all the boxes for the requisite Housewives products. First a wine, then a skincare line, and now a book!

Heather and her husband Dr. Terry Dubrow recently revealed they’re working on a skincare book together. The concept of the Real Housewives Of Orange County stars endeavor is the best and worst skincare products and procedures available. This year the couple also released, Consult Beaute, a skincare line, and the book will be an accompaniment to that. 

“There are many misconceptions in the world of health, wellness, and beauty,” describes Heather. “We will give our readers the truth about procedures, treatments, and products based on our personal experience and expertise.”


Vicki Gunvalson

Vicki Gunvalson has endured – and definitely contributed to – ten seasons of screaming, crying, and backstabbing on the Real Housewives of Orange County. In a recent interview, Vicki opened up about her co-stars, why newbies have an advantage, her future on the show, and more.

When asked which former or current co-stars she considers real friends, Vicki shared, “It changes from season to season. Tamra [Judge] is my friend .. right now. Alexis Bellino absolutely is my friend. She reaches out to me weekly.” She went on to say that she sees both Lynne Curtin and Jeana Keough “now and then” but has not stayed in touch with anyone else.
