The first episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County season was a rough one for Shannon Beador and it’s clear that the rest of the season will not be much easier. After renewing her vows with her husband (a reality TV rite of passage at this point), Shannon’s marriage is rocky again and she even blamed nemesis Vicki Gunvalson for her weight gain.
It seems like Shannon’s approach has drastically changed since filming wrapped since she is actually taking responsibility for gaining weight and she refuses to mention Vicki by name- which is a stark contrast from blaming her for just about everything to ever happen in the history of the universe.
Washing up on the shores of the California beaches, amid the shells and driftwood, is the rubble of last season’s Real Housewives Of Orange County. Littering the sands with shards of shattered friendships, filthy accusations, and broken down dignities; a bent halo, some empty vodka and champs bottles, and Shannon Beador‘s former self, now soaked and waterlogged by the hours of tears she’s spilled over the terrible lies Vicki Gunvalson told. The fate of the world, and the Orange County coastline — along with the safety and health of Briana’s children – all rests in Vicki’s handbag! Thankfully she’s not crazy or anything…
So the taglines: let’s start there. What makes Tamra Judge “highly prized”? Or was she just proud of herself for coming up with a rhyme. Hook’d on Phonics worked for her! Vicki’s tagline informs us that she’s not going home, but what she means is that this show is her home, and you are not going to drop any interloping houses on her head! She clicked her ruby slippers together three times and dragged Briana from the land of tornadoes to get here.
So, before we get into the all-new drama, let’s take a trip down memory lane to relive all the craziness from season 11. Maybe a tequila will help refresh things?! And season 11 was full of crashes and burns (literally), boozes and burns (literally), and plenty of rides from hell.
The season opened with Vicki all by herself, and seeking absolution after lying – in some capacity – about what she knew about Brooks Ayers‘ phony cancer scheme. Obviously no one wants to forgive Vicki because it doesn’t seem possible that she totally didn’t realize he was faking a terminal illness for money and attention.
WOO HOO! Real Housewives Of Orange County returns next week and I am peeing my pants Vicki Gunvalson-style with excitement. And as a little sneak peak of what’s to come, Bravo revealed the season 12 taglines for the enormous cast of ladies!
Whether you’re a Kelly Doddfriend or foe, almost everyone can agree that she’s not someone who should be messed with. She has no qualms about standing up for herself in any situation so it’s not at all surprising that she held her own when a random guy got physical and tried to steal from her while she was trying to celebrate Fourth of July.
It’s time for the annual Alexis Bellino family vacation – complete with smiling photos, family fun, itty-bitty outfits, and Jimplant. Oh… actually, no Jim Bellino.
Alexis, her kiddos, and it looks like several family members (including her mom) headed to Colorado for the yearly #BellinoFamilyVacation, however the former Real Housewives Of Orange County star’s husband must have stayed behind in Cali to run their trampoline empire. Or else Jim is always the photographer, never the model.
