As much as I love Real Housewives of Orange County, Season 12 is definitely “off” so far. It is just such a fragmented show with most of the women refusing to film together and there are no real story lines so far. Other than Shannon Beador throwing that plate full of food at Kelly Dodd, it’s been a pretty boring season.
Hopefully that changes, but as of now, the show is in the same place it has been for the past two seasons with Tamra Judge and Shannon refusing to associate with Vicki Gunvalson. The battle lines have been drawn with Vicki and Kelly on one side and Tamra and Shannon on the other.
The current Real Housewives of Orange Countyseason feels like several different shows rolled into one. There’s a major divide in the cast with a lot of the women refusing to film with each other and when they do they don’t even acknowledge each other if they’re in the same room. Even so, the ladies from the cast all came together to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Shannon was upset that David was spending so much time exercising instead of being with her, so it would make sense for her to join the race- even though doing obstacles in the mud is so far from my personal idea of fun. I figured she would at least end up going to the race to support her friends and husband, but she did not and Shannon’s latest nemesis Lydia was pretty surprised by that.
Can’t automobile Feng Shui prevent nose bleeds? Maybe Shannon needs to move a tissue to her rear view mirror, aka the driver’s awareness corner, where instead she has an air freshener? Anyway, Shannon shared a photo of herself in the hospital recovering from her health crisis. I wonder if Vicki Gunvalson brought Shannon casserolessweat pants in her time of immense need?
Out of everyone in the Real Housewives franchise, it would make sense for Tamra Judge to be all about turning fifty. I mean look at her: she’s been hitting the gym hard and got the most on point face lift. She’s slaying fifty. Or at least that’s easy for me to say as an outsider who has never met her, yet has been strangely invested in her life over the years.
Tamra is just not ready for the big birthday, or at least that’s what she said. Just like the other Housewives before her, I’m sure she will go all out with the celebrations.
After a tough start with Briana and Ryan getting married out of nowhere, Vicki getting upset that the family temporarily left Orange County for Oklahoma, and that random disagreement with Lydia McLaughlin’s mom, Vicki has grown to love her son-in-law and she seems to pretty pumped that he is back.
After Peggy Sulahian pinched Meghan Edmonds‘ lips and acted like it wasn’t at all offensive, it’s pretty reasonable for Meghan to not be a fan of hers. Who actually does that? Especially the very first time they’ve interacted.
None of Peggy’s “jokes” seem to make any sense. To put it mildly, she doesn’t really seem to be the best fit for Real Housewives of Orange County. To put it honestly, she should have never been cast for this show. One person who definitely agrees with that sentiment is Meghan. That’s for sure.
Peggy didn’t appreciate Tamra‘s “selectively reiterated” version of events to Eddie. She says Tamra made her look like the bad guy, but the whole thing isn’t worth her time. “My intention was to smoothen out the rocky patch between Vicki and Tamra, but I now understand that it’s not worth for me to involve myself.” She says that she was only trying to help and shouldn’t be bashed for that.
