Now it’s time to give an official farewell to Bravo’s First Lady of Perfectly Chilled Champs. After years of Heather pontificating about the right way to do wrong, and the wrong way to do wrong, and the wrong way to do everything in between, it only seems appropriate to memorialize Heather The Housewife with an affirmational retrospective.
Some moments were genuinely cringe worthy and some of the jabs went too far, but that plate throw was absolutely everything. Maybe there’s something wrong with me for being so entertained, but whatever. At least I’m being honest.
At this point, Tamra Judge seems like a different person after her newfound Christianity. Instead of being the instigator, she is really trying when it comes to this peacemaker role – minus hating on eternal frienemy Vicki Gunvalson whenever possible, but that’s basically a rite of passage on Real Housewives of Orange County.
Still, she was calm, cool, and collected during that instantly infamous dinner at The Quiet Woman when Shannon Beador threw a plate (full of food, mind you), and she was even polite and cordial toward Kelly Dodd (who she cannot stand).
It’s so crazy to think that the viewers watched Briana Culberson getting ready for prom when Real Housewives of Orange Countyfirst started and now she’s giving on-camera interviews and avoiding Tamra Judge at social events. She is basically a Real Housewife herself, but that’s not enough for her mom Vicki Gunvalson. The OG of the OC wants her daughter to join the cast- officially!
It is so annoying when people join the cast who have no genuine ties to the ladies. The conversation, drama, and the relationships in general just seem way too contrived. Adding someone’s daughter would definitely emphasis the “real” in Real Housewives. I mean I would definitely take Briana over a few of the current cast members that we are stuck with this season.
Shannon and Tamra didn’t know Lydia had been scheming-not-scheming by inviting Kelly until the episode aired, and now they’re calling out her “pot stirring” antics. For some reason Meghan Edmonds is involving herself, because that’s what Meghanny Drew, Girl Detective does – she gets to the bottom of drama!
That last Real Housewives of Orange County episode was epic. Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd going at it in the restaurant was a shit show and a half. The part that is so strange to me though is that Lydia McLaughlin is actually the one who invited Kelly to the restaurant, yet Shannon is mad at Kelly for “ambushing” her. Lydia could have/should have given Shannon a heads up about the invite.
Now Lydia is playing the innocent card (yet again) wondering why Shannon went off on Kelly for innocently walking into the bathroom and why Kelly took it way too far by telling her to “keep eating.”
Kelly Dodd already admitted on Watch What Happens Live that she had zero regrets about her behavior at The Quiet Woman. The Real Housewives of Orange County star elaborates on her thoughts over the episode in her newest blog entry.
She shares a bit of background on how the night unraveled, “Before I jump fully into the Shannon-igans at The Quiet Woman, I want to explain something…as you saw, Lydia actually invited me to dinner when she was riding in Peggy’s Ferrari. I thought Tamra was going to dinner, but I wasn’t sure about Shannon. Regardless, I had to decline because my dear friend had family visiting from Philadelphia and they invited Michael and me for a sunset cruise on Newport Harbor. That’s where I was when Lydia called – enjoying a beautiful day with close friends on the water, sharing some great wine and hors d’oeuvers.”
