We spent the entire season chasing down Brooks’ diagnosis (which came back “LIARFACE!”). After Brooks announced his decision to eschew chemo, everyone just wanted Brooks and Vicki to prove emphatically that he had cancer – non-Hodgkin Lymphoma to be exact, instead he did some Earthing and drank smoothies.
I have no idea why this is a news story because I feel like I hear this Vicki starts this “rumor” every year, but Vicki Gunvalson has revealed that she almost did not come back to Real Housewives of Orange County. I never believe it because we all know how much pride she takes in being the “OG of the OC,” but she likes to spread this possibility around in between every season it seems.
Aside from this “revelation,” Vicki also shares her thoughts on her break up with Brooks Ayers, trashes the rest of the cast for not getting over the craziness that happened last year, and comes for her frienemy Tamra Judge– hard.
We’re just days away from the new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County! Last night Housewives past and present gathered together to celebrate the premiere and also the 10 year anniversary of the show!
I have no idea why Lynne Curtin is not on Real Housewives of Orange County anymore, but I will say that it is a major oversight. Not only did Lynne have a peculiar personality that was constantly entertaining, but her family life was chock full of drama- constantly. She always had an actual story line and it was just reality TV gold.
I always felt so bad watching her deal with her rebellious daughters and from what I hear the drama got even crazier after she left the show. Among other things, her daughter Alexa Curtin decided to become a porn star. She also recently accused a sheriff deputy of rape. And it seems like things are getting even more dramatic for Lynne’s youngest daughter.
Season 8 was Heather’s second season on the show and one comment production made was that Heather was basically forced into it by her husband Terry Dubrow, and was eager and anxious to get Alexis replaced with one of her friends. On her podcast Heather Dubrow’s World, she insists none of that is true.
“Some of the producers have some revisionist history going on!” scoffs Heather. Heather insists she never conspired to have Alexis replaced by a friend or chased them down with a casting suggestion after Alexis fled the CUT Fitness party. “That never happened,” Heather swears. “I had no one!”
So here’s a run-down of the behind-the-scenes reveals:
1. The producers lie to everyone. Case in point: Alexis Bellino. Alexis insists she quit;Heather Dubrow and Tamra Judge insist she was fired. At the CUT Fitness party, the opening party for season 8, after Alexis flees following the onslaught from the ladies, she is overheard telling the producers, “This is why I didn’t want to come back!” The producers admitted they worked behind the scenes to convince Alexis to return – including that Vicki Gunvalson would befriend her, and by hiring Lydia McLaughlin.
