It's always odd to refer to reality TV as too much reality but last night's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was like watching a high-gloss, ultraglam version of Intervention.
Vicki Gunvalson needs a serious wake-up call and unfortunately being called out on national television by her daughter and close friends wasn't enough to do it.
Here let me try to help: Vicki – BROOKS AYERS is a loser. He's using you. He's gross. No one likes him for a reason. Please dump him, get a restraining order, and then get thoroughly STD tested. Hey that's just my advice, but I think you should take it! I'm starting to think Brooks has some serious mega dirt on Vicki – is this a case of blackmail gone Stockholm Syndrome?
Joining him will be Briana Culberson whose hubby Ryan is behind the recordings. Vicki apparently breaks down. In the wake of all the drama there is a lot of swirling information about whether or not Vicki and Brooks have broken up?
The Real Housewives of Orange County's drama is never ending, but the ladies certainly seem to be ramping up their public appearances on the heels of all of the reunion insanity–and to think, we've got one more installment!
The O.G. of the O.C. Vicki Gunvalson continues to go on (and on and on and on) about her depleted love tank, and Gretchen Rossi is still devastated that her frienemies thought her proposal to Slade Smiley was just for the cameras. So it wasn't? What these ladies fail to realize is that they keep replaying the same old story lines…and the season is done filming!
And now I've heard everything. The ridiculously shady law suit between Real Housewives of Orange County'sVicki Gunvalson's vodka partner and Brooks Ayers has now become even shadier, and who'd think that was even possible? It seems that now Brooks is suing Robert Williamson III (the same guy who is suing him) alleging slander and defamation. Why? He's claiming that Robert has been making claims that Brooks had hired a hit man to kill him! Murder for hire by Bravo!
Radar is reporting that the majority of the debacle went down via text message, and Brooks wants to clear his good (ahem) name. According to court documents filed in Las Vegas (I thought what happened there stayed there!), Robert and his wife Cate lured Vicki to a hotel room to fill her head with asinine falsehoods about Brooks including that he is a “dangerous guy who has threatened Plaintiff (Williamson) and his wife’s life” and that he “hired a hit man to kill plaintiff.” Oh, and he had a lot of STDs. I couldn't make this up if I tried!
I don't know if there's magic powers in the blinged out bible or she just finally decided that being herself was better than trying too hard. Or maybe Jim Bellino let her have brain back and reversed the lobotomy? Because not only is Alexis thinking for herself she's setting a good example for the other ladies to put pettiness aside and forgiving but not forgetting!
"It's easy to forgive, even though you don't necessarily forget. . .," Alexis writes in her Bravo blog of all the changed relationships she's experienced this season.
Dang, don't mess with a grifter's game! Brooks Ayers had a pretty sweet gig as the affirmation swilling boyfriend of sugarmama Vicki Gunvalson.
Unfortunately everyone saw Brooks' true colors but the Real Housewives of Orange County star who finally wised up (after he reportedly caused her to be sued) and dumped Brooks! Now it seems horrific details of their increasingly volatile and frightening relationship will be aired during the third installment of the RHOC reunion where Brooks will make an appearance!
Vicki and Brooks' relationship seemed increasingly sketchy this season as he was pressuring her with ultimatums and odd emotional manipulations. Vicki often seemed desperate around Brooks, who last season was bending over backwards to flatter and woo her.
The Monday reality TV viewer numbers are in and they're not too shabby!
Basketball Wives is back with a bang! The season 5 premiere episode pulled in 2.39 million viewers. Now let's just hope that the audience wasn't turned off by the hour long 'woe is Evelyn' fest. I don't mean to be cold hearted, but it was a bit much and I hope they don't plan to dwell in it all season.
