Happy Election Day. Or is it unhappy? What’s more distressing: The 2016 presidential election, or a Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion? I can’t choose who won or lost the debates that happened on Bravo’s biggest stage last night, moderated by Andy Cohen, who believes in hard-hitting journalism – like how did Tamra Judge achieve such a great ass?!
So, I might kinda love Kelly Dodd. Throw me under the bus in Ireland – I don’t care.
Sure, Kelly is crazy and shoots her mouth off, but really – Tamra never met an F-bomb or a crass comment she didn’t like, and Shannon Beador willingly admits being friends with a woman whose “trademark thing” is going around accusing people of “sucking d–k for money,” so what I’m saying is that the high horse bucked y’all off, and told you to get in the donkey pen with the other asses.
With The Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion coming up, the OC ladies are scrambling to clean up their individual messes. They also seem to be taking one last virtual shot at their enemies before that reunion couch footage airs. Shannon Beador is no exception, writing in her blog this week about all of the “rumors” she could have spread about Kelly Dodd (but didn’t). Which means she’s not a bully, at least in her own judgy eyes!
Shannon begins with whining about production having to inviteVicki Gunvalson and Kelly to Tamra Judge’s party. Shannon claims that she and hubby David Beador “didn’t have a choice because we didn’t create the guest list. Vicki and Kelly are responsible for putting a horrible and false allegation out there about my husband. I don’t want to see or talk to either of them… understandably so.”
Apparently rumors that Kelly has a secret boyfriend named Frank have been well-known through the OC, and several cast members heard them prior to filming, during, or after.
“This is like not new news in Newport. I’ve heard it; we’ve all heard it… We’ve been hearing it forever,” declares Tamra. “For me, it’s like a rumor, so none of us brought it up on the show.” (Except Shannon…)
All of these women are ridiculous, in my opinion. I’d call them high school mean girls, but I think seventh grade girls are even meaner. Maybe that’s a better comparison. Each clique is so concerned with accusing the other of same exact things both are doing. I want to scream, “You’re all talking shiz! You’re all horrible friends! You all need a stylist who knows the meaning of the term ‘age appropriate’!” They’d do better just walking around holding a mirror up to one another because they are all the same: gossipy, insecure, hateful, and, of course, constantly the victim. Duh.
Given the contentious nature of this season, it’s only natural that the ladies react just as contentiously in their blogs. Heather Dubrow calls out Meghan Edmonds, Kelly Dodd, and Vicki Gunvalson in her blog this week as the ultimate sh*t-stirrers / backstabbers, and she’s not holding back! Citing Meghan as two-faced, Kelly as a troublemaker, and Vicki as the revenge-seeking “puppet master,” Heather claims that the reunion to come “will not disappoint.”
Production sources attest that Tamra did share the photo with cast and crew, also making a slew of rude comments about Vicki. That in itself is mean, but where it potentially gets illegal is in the hands of a minor! Tamra is also accused of sharing the nude photo with guests at a party and allegedly asking a 15-year-old girl to post it on social media.
Last night was the 4th annual Reality TV Awards ceremony and several familiar faces turned out for the event. We have the red carpet photos and the full winner’s list!
Vicki Gunvalson, who won “Reality Queen,” was in attendance with her beau Steve. Abby Lee Miller took home the prize for Favorite Reality TV Villain while Real Housewives of Orange Countywon for Favorite Recurring Cast. Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa won for Heartfelt Moment. Reality Tea was nominated for Favorite Reality TV Website, but we lost out to TMZ. Not bad company to be in for that category, though, right? Oh well, there’s always next year. We were just thrilled to be in the running with some pretty amazing sites. 😉
Check out the full list of winners below, as well as photos of some of the red carpet arrivals.
