Heather Dubrow has a lot going on this season on the Real Housewives of Orange County. Personally, I get a kick out of her fancy pants behavior, and admit I watch the Housewives to get a peek at the kind of mega-mansion lifestyle she’s building (rather than the latest ranch rental a’la Brandi Glanville or fraudulent grasping at wealth via RHONJ). So, true to her “pretty close” to perfect life – and tag line – Heather has a lot of updates this week on the fabulousness that is Heather!
Captioning the above photo on her Instagram, Heather wrote, “Lighting and painting and stone OH MY ! #buildingthehouse#willwebeinbydecember #12hourstoday.” So, sounds like the Dubrows are working toward a December deadline. But Heather can’t promise this will be the last house they ever build, sharing with All Things Real Housewives recently that her family is used to moving, and may well keep on moving (to what? a theme park!?) until the end of time! “Terryand I have been together for almost two decades and we’ve never lived in one place longer than three years. Who knows!” Heather divulged. “We could be here one year, two years, ten years, twenty years. You never know. I will say it has been a lot of work, in the last two days I’ve been there eleven hours a day with very crucial planning.”
Vicki starts by sharing that she’s writing from Oklahoma this week, where she’s visiting Briana and her boys, Troy and Owen. “Troy will be three in September and Owen just turned one,” reports Vicki. “They are beautiful boys and so sweet. You will see them on the show later in the season when I come out and visit them, and they also came back to California for a few days so stay tuned.”
Tamra Judge is admitting that she and Eddie Judge bit off more togetherness than they could chew by opening a new business in their first year of marriage. In this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County Tamra told Eddie she’s going to be less involvement in CUT Fitness to re-focus on her real estate career.
“Getting married and starting a business in the same year was a challenge and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone,” advises Tamra. “CUT Fitness has had its up and downs and so many times I wanted to throw in the towel, but what I have learned is it takes a good three years to get a company off the ground.
Finally we’re seeing some more upbeat scenes on the Real Housewives of Orange County with Shannon Beador, even if those scenes involve squeezing one’s flab and celebrating love with dragon bracelets! This week, Shannon expresses relief that the show is highlighting some of the healing in her marriage, as well as her body.
“I like this episode,” begins Shannon. “Finally you are seeing some fun and positivity!!!” As for her choice to bare it all at the gym, she remarks, “I know, what was I thinking??? I lifted up my shirt and squeezed all the flab on my stomach. I thought that it would motivate me to finally tone up my body and exercise. It has. As most women enter their 50’s, we get a little thicker around the midsection! Today I can say that I am still not the biggest fan of exercise, but I like the results and I am actually becoming stronger and more toned. David is such a workout fanatic so it’s nice that we can do another activity together.”
Although we’ve only got to “meet her” on the TV screen for a very short time on The Real Housewives of Orange County, we’re so sad to report that LeAnn Edmonds (nee Horton) has passed away. Lee Ann, Jim Edmonds’ first wife and mother to his daughters Lauren and Hayley, had been battling cancer.
A source close to the family confirmed the news to us this morning. Meghan has been Tweeting today, “Embrace the world today! Point your soul to the sun. Today is a sad day. Pls send positive vibes this way!” She later shared the quote: “Time has ceased But cherished memories still linger This is the way of life and all things We shall meet again.”
Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County reality was a hard-knocks life. Meghan Edmonds cried because being a grownup is really, really, really difficult and she just needs Jimmy to wipe her tears and tell her it will be OK. Unfortunately she can’t find the box of tissues in the moving boxes and she’s pretty sure the movers put them in with her trashcan right next to her self-awareness.
Shannon Beador is on a quest to lose weight; her heavy heart is weighing her down. Despite being 50 she’s never, ever worked out! Shannon visits some trainer/spiritualist who makes her pull up her shirt and then squeezes her chi center, (which if you say that out like sounds like a delicious crispy snack similar to Cheetos!). Shannon isn’t sure what’s making the scale rise and rise (mixing nine lemons with vodka?!) but the likely culprit is emotional baggage.
Rumors were flying this morning, suggesting that Vicki and Brooks were engaged and crediting his cancer diagnosis as the catalyst for taking their relationship to the next level. But according to Vicki, we shouldn’t be waiting by the mailbox for a wedding invitation anytime soon! She released a statement via her rep this afternoon, denying the reports.
As a reality TV newbie, Meghan listed “not running into the crew” and “having to wear fake eyelashes” as the only two things that took some getting used to. Otherwise, she was ready and willing to film, “Being on a reality TV show, you have to be okay in front of the cameras, otherwise you don’t have a story. You don’t have a show.”
