On last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County, enemy factions were forced to come face-to-face for the second coming, actually THIRD coming, of Jim Edmond‘s reproductive prowess. By that I mean that Meghan Edmonds hosted a Sip and See, and decided the theme would be World War III by Bravo: Bitter-er, Blonder, Boozier.
Vicki Gunvalsonlives in a world in which no one but her equally delusional imaginary friend exists. Vicki’s slip was showing and it certainly was not virginal white as she menacingly promised to make Tamra Judge and Shannon suffer for turning their backs on her, like this is that 90’s Tori Spelling Lifetime movie A Friend To Die For where the unpopular girl takes revenge on the bully cheerleaders. Ugh – if Shannon and Tamra are your aspirational friends, oh dear than you, Vicki, are more screwed up than Brooks led us to believe you were!
Even though Meghan Edmonds had zero interaction with any other cast members for the first three episodes this season, she sure has a lot to say about the ladies now. Obviously she has some strong opinions about the new girl Peggy Sulahian ever since she physically shut her lips to stop her from talking.
She is still mad at Kelly Dodd for accusing her husband Jim Edmondsof having affair in response to Meghan asking Kelly if she was having an affair herself. In my eyes, those were pretty much the same offense, but Meghan feels like Kelly really crossed the line just because Meghan was pregnant when they had the conversation. If someone wants a stress-free pregnancy, I don’t feel like instigating Kelly Dodd is the way to go.
Needless to say, it’s clear that Meghan had no idea what she was getting herself into when she introduced Kelly to reality TV. And now Kelly has gone from starting shit with Meghan’s friends, to coming at Meghan herself. And aside from the Kelly drama, Meghan isn’t off to a great start with the new girl Peggy Sulahian.
Lydia McLaughlin has great hair. That’s all I’ve got. (Kidding! But, I was surprised to hear she’d be back this season, given her mildly “blah” presence last time around). Since her return to The Real Housewives Of Orange County, Lydia has been trying hard to situate herself in the middle of the drama, rather than on its perimeters. Great move to keep that orange, but not so wise in terms of holding on to one’s sanity.
It was even weirder because Vicki Gunvalson didn’t even seem to be that offended by Meghan’s words. Sure, she was kind of wound up, but Vicki is always wound up. Surprisingly enough, it seemed like they were just having a (relatively) mature discussion with a difference of opinion and they were both handling it pretty well… then Peggy stepped in and grabbed Meghan’s mouth.
Time to envy the lifestyles of the rich and wannabe famous whose job is being a real Housewife! Lydia McLaughlin is vacationing with her family on the Amalfi Coast in Italy and is sharing some stunning photos of the experience. Hopefully no one throws any plates full of pasta!
Sidney has since deleted the excoriating post (thank you Jesus it’s logged for all posterity on the internet!), however before it was removed Tamra rampaged through the comment thread to defend herself and act like Saint Holier Than Thou Of The Jesus Barbies.
