Real Housewives of Orange County

Heather Dubrow

It was safe to assume that Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd were not be upset when they found out Heather Dubrow would not be returning to Real Housewives of Orange County. She did not get along with Kelly from the jump and she was on Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador’s side of their feud against Vicki.

Now we don’t have to just assume that Vicki and Kelly were happy that Heather left the show because they both just confirmed the sentiment.

That restaurant fight between Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador sure got ugly. Shannon definitely overreacted (yet again) to Kelly’s presence at the restaurant even though I figured that she should be well-aware that Kelly might show up considering that they’re both cast members on the same reality show. Still, Kelly took the insults too far (yet again) by telling Shannon to, “keep eating” while she was struggling with her weight.

As awful as that was, Shannon throwing that plate because it wasn’t hers was hilarious. Even after watching the episode, Kelly made it clear that she doesn’t regret anything during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

Shannon flips Kelly Off

Last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County was like getting food poisoning at a BBQ thrown by a person you cannot stand, but whose party you have to attend because they’re related to your significant other. Basically it was like all of Shannon Beador‘s Thanksgivings – saddled to David and his dour mother who possibly put Ex-Lax in the cranberries she pretended to make from scratch. But it wasn’t just the food that was poisoned last night – there were all sorts of hellish encounters, and no one’s saintly patience was tested more than Shannon’s! Oh Shannon – can we take you nowhere without an incident or scene? Recounting your Housewives history, the answer, thankfully, is NO!

There is probably no one who loves a Real Housewives “dinner from hell” more than I do. In fact, I quit throwing dinner parties because mine are never terrible enough. It’s probably because I don’t have enough psychic friends, or frenemies who despise each other, or friends going through terrible personal dramas they want to talk about on TV, but refuse to let anyone else discuss. No one has ever thrown a plate full of steak at me either. Maybe I should just give up dinner altogether. I should also probably avoid my friends’ children’s birthday parties because they’re just the usual kids running around and eating too much cake. No middle-aged women argue, storm off, or have histrionic meltdowns over semantics. 

Meghan apologizes for Glamis

So far this season, Meghan Edmonds has had zero drama with the rest of the Real Housewives of Orange County ladies. That’s because the only scenes she’s filmed have been with her husband and baby, but it’s good for staying out of the fray and still collecting that Bravo paycheck.

Even though Meghan has stayed away from the controversy, she did watch the last episode and she has plenty of opinions about everything that has gone down.

Say what you want about Shannon Beador, but no one can dispute that she really puts herself out there. From revealing her husband David Beador’s affair, to taking her shirt off for a weigh in, Shannon shares it all on Real Housewives of Orange County– especially her dislike for enemy Vicki Gunvalson.

The last episode was a tough look for Shannon and things look even crazier tonight with Shannon screaming at Kelly Dodd in a restaurant- which is something I am so pumped to see. Now Shannon is defending herself after arguing with Lydia McLaughlin at Tamra Judge’s granddaughter’s birthday party (again) and takes ownership for her weight gain.

Kelly fights with Michael

Two episodes into Season 12 of Real Housewives of Orange County and I’m just waiting for Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador to come face to face. I get my wish on next week’s episode during an explosive fight at a restaurant, but I still have a couple days until I get to watch the drama go down.

Even though Kelly hasn’t seen or talked to Shannon so far this season, she still has plenty of opinions on Shannon’s Feng Shui and her fight with Lydia McLaughlin at Tamra Judge’s granddaughter’s birthday party.

I had no idea what to make of it during the last Real Housewives of Orange County episode when Shannon Beador had a feng shui consultant come to her new home. I’m not gonna lie, I checked out immediately when the woman described her sink as “female” and the stove as “male.” That wasn’t the only mention of feng shui during the episode though.

Shannon’s former friend Vicki Gunvalson dissed the concept even though she was all for it while she and Shannon were still cool. As expected, Shannon isn’t going to let that go and she’s calling her out.

Shannon & Tamra fight with Lydia

Even though no one was asking for it, Lydia McLaughlin is back on Real Housewives of Orange County. After having no story line her first time around, other than calling out Slade Smiley for skinny shaming her, Lydia is really doing the most to be relevant this season. Even though she did not keep in touch with any cast members when she left the show and she didn’t watch it, she thinks that she is an authority on the cast dynamic.

Lydia would not stop talking about Vicki Gunvalson when she first met Shannon Beador at Tamra Judge’s granddaughter’s birthday party- which clearly irritated them both. She hasn’t even interacted with Meghan Edmonds at this point in the season, but Meghan, Shannon, and Tamra all shared their opinions on Lydia’s behavior during the second episode of the season. Spoiler alert: they all think she’s a shit stirrer.
