Whether you love Shannon Beador or not, everyone has to admit that she is really doing the most to earn that orange. She really puts herself out there on Real Housewives of Orange County. She hasn’t been shy about her marital problems or her forty pound weight gain this season.
Instead of solely being applauded for her openness about her body, Shannon actually took a lot of heat for attributing the gain to stress caused by her nemesis Vicki Gunvalson. After apologizing for that comment a million times over, Shannon will (most likely) have to address it again when she films the RHOCreunion episodes. She will be ready for it though. She has lost some weight and she plans to lose even more before she reunites with the rest of the cast for the reunion.
Casting Peggy Sulahian for Real Housewives of Orange County seems like the most random choice. She didn’t know any of the women before joining the show and she doesn’t seem to have any grasp on what is going on between the women. It doesn’t make a lot of sense for her to be on this show.
Plus her “story line” for the last episode was going to the post office with her husband Diko Sulahianto mail an envelope for their daughter’s college applications. Why couldn’t she just put the envelope in her own mailbox at home? Isn’t her daughter applying online anyway? Is this really the best story line she could come up with?
And even worse, Kelly did all of this to try and sell the idea that Vicki Gunvalson isn’t responsible for the mean and erroneous things she says. Dang does it stab me in the heart to have to even loosely defend Tamra Judge on anything (but I’m doing this for Eddie you guys! It’s like my version of bathroom porn, or something).
Poor Vicki Gunvalson. She wants to be a good friend and get along with all the girls so they can have a good old fashioned whoop it up time, until she invites scandalous gossip mongers to her birthday party, then she’s all “Tell me more!”
Vicki started off on the right foot by asking Tamra Judge to coffee. She ended up in the wrong red dress when she continued to facilitate inappropriate speculation about Eddie Judge’s life. Vicki needs Spanx for her mouth, as well as for her red dress.
“When I decided to call Tamra to ask her to go get coffee it was because I’m tired of the fighting and I wanted to make amends. She has been doing everything she can to alienate me with my friends. We weren’t even speaking when Kelly and I talked about it. I don’t know why she can’t let it go and move on,” Vicki complains. Cause: accountability!
Vicki is very adamant about the rumors that Tamra’s husband Eddie Judge is “secretly gay” and that Shannon Beador’s husband David Beador “beats her.” No one is willing to speak to each other, let alone film together. There are some strong feelings of animosity between these women and Tamra is not shy sharing her opinion after the Eddie bashing that went down at Vicki‘s birthday party.
Starting off with her own birthday situation, Shannon says we need to back off if we think she needs to shut up already with her whining to David about Vicki’s allegations. “It is difficult to watch my birthday conversation with David. For all of you that are going to tell me to just keep my mouth shut and stop complaining, let me stop you there. I haven’t been bringing up this subject over and over. I don’t talk about it every minute. But on this one year anniversary of the vow renewal, you are actually seeing me talk about things from my heart. I had no intention of going into this subject, but because of the day, it just happened. Yes, I was stressed about the whole Vicki allegation situation because I didn’t want my family to get hurt. We have been through enough. But that was six months ago and I am having the hardest time realizing that David has been distancing himself from me.”
Someone once told me if you have nothing nice to say; say nothing at all. Well, unfortunately I’m not at liberty to do that – sorry Real Housewives Of Orange County. I have nothing nice to say about any of you, and the thought of holding it all in makes me want to cry like I’m Meghan Edmonds fake-sobbing in a canyon. Maybe Meghan’s tears were instal-dried by the wind or evaporated. Or plastic people make plastic tears which just clog in their tear ducts and until they’re plucked out and thrown away.
Meghan and Vicki Gunvalson aren’t so different, are they? It’s ME ME ME all the TIME TIME TIME. No one understands and blah, blah, blah…
