Despite some of her RHOC co-stars denying that Tamra hit her, Kelly says she definitely did. “As excited as I was to visit Ireland, after Tamra hit me I was suffering from an emotional hangover for the remainder of the trip. Tamra, Shannon, and Heather had all turned against me; Vicki was trying to play both sides. She wasn’t acting like the friend I had come to cherish. Thank goodness Meghan continued to act friendly towards me. That made the trip somewhat bearable.”
Kelly Dodd has said some pretty offensive stuff to her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars, but it was so obvious that they were all trying to provoke her during the Ireland trip. Everyone knows Kelly doesn’t shine when there’s liquor involved, so I found it extremely suspect that Shannon Beador, of all people, was pushing Kelly to down more liquor when she said she didn’t want to. Why would she do that? I really don’t get it and neither does Meghan Edmonds.
Even though the trip to Ireland was supposedly Meghan’s idea, she was not present for most of the drama, so she was watching that dinner scene for the first time with us viewers. I was on the fence about Shannon setting up Kelly at that 70’s party, but after seeing her push alcohol on Kelly (multiple times!), it definitely seems plausible.
Shannon Beador sets the record straight in her new Bravo blog. The Real Housewives of Orange County star did not mean any harm by running to Tamra Judge to tell her what Kelly Dodd said about her daughter, she also denies the accusation that she tried to get Kelly wasted this week. She also claims that Tamra did NOT hit Kelly in the store. Shannon explains this and more, so read on!
“Before I dive into this week’s episode, I have to address something in Kelly’s blog last week. She stated that “Shannon couldn’t wait to run to Tamra in the store and tell her what I had said.” Let me make it clear. I had no intention of hurting one of my best friends. But when Tamra specifically asked me what Kelly and I spoke about, I was not willing to lie. Tamra told me what my mother-in-law said about me and it may not have been the best time either, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. But what is most distressing about Kelly’s blog is her statement that Tamra hit her. Tamra did no such thing. She pushed Kelly and quickly walked away. I was witness to everything, as well as the other ladies present. Kelly needs to stop blaming others for her horrendous comments and start telling the truth.”
I never thought I would mention Vicki Gunvalson and Ramona Singer in the same sentence, yet here I am. No, there isn’t some sort of Housewives crossover happening,- although that would really be the dream. The two were both on a panel at Mohegan Sun’s anniversary party, so of course they were asked a million questions and it always comes back to the boy drama for these shows. Naturally, they both dished on being single after the very public demise of their previous relationships.
It seems like Ramona came out stronger than ever after her divorce from Mario Singer who she found out was cheating on her in the press. On the flip side, Vicki is still reeling from her relationship with Brooks Ayers and the cancer scam even though she already has a new boyfriend. Nevertheless, they both know what it’s like to have their love lives in the Real Housewives spotlight.
Last night’s Real Housewives of Orange County episode was a horribly edited mess, to say the least. It was choppy and you can tell we missed a LOT of what really happened. Thankfully Heather Dubrow videoed some of it or we would’ve only heard the many different versions of the story later.
Tamra Judge took to her blog to try to expand on a few of the situations and give her side of things. In her blog she blasts Kelly Dodd for her crazy behavior, claims that classless booby flasher Vicki Gunvalson loves to throw people under the bus, stands firm in her innocence regarding attempts to get Kelly wasted, and so much more.
Listening to Vicki talk about how her life was affected by cancer and how she really believed Brooks Ayers actually had cancer was tough to watch and aside from that it was obviously a poor PR move after all the negative press she had last year. I also did not understand the charity at all, but now it has been shut down (at least the website) and Vicki is doing what she can to backpedal and distance herself after hyping it up and starring in that awkward commercial.
While I was super sad that Lauri Peterson left Real Housewives of Orange County to help her son Josh Waring with his many troubles, I can’t blame her for prioritizing her family. It also makes me wonder why other Housewives didn’t make the same choice, but that’s a whole can of worms to open.
Sadly, for Lauri and her family, Josh’s drama has not subsided at all. He was recently accused of shooting someone and now the alleged victim is suing him. That is some serious trouble, especially for someone who’s been struggling to get on the straight and narrow path for many years. This is tough situation for everyone involved and their families.
What a strange episode! So Kelly Dodd is a rampant liability who needs to be exposed, so suddenly the ladies are all BFF with Vicki again. Yes, even Shannon. Tequila Shots became the Trojan Horse of RHOC last night, and it was well, awful.
These women know Vicki’s love tank, all cylinders of it, are running on “E” and her yearning to be their friend is so palpable you could drink it in a shot glass. Yet, who is Kelly’s only conceivable ally on RHOC? Vicki – the other ostracized one. And how do you get Kelly defenseless when she’s indefensible? Capture Vicki, leaving her bogged down in the conflict between what is right and what is right for her right now.
