At this point there’s no doubt that Shannon Beador is having the toughest time out of all the Real Housewives of Orange County cast members this season. From her marriage, to her weight, to her fights with Kelly Dodd and Lydia McLaughlin, she has really been struggling.
Even though Meghan Edmonds is the one who brought Kelly Dodd to Real Housewives of Orange County, the two could not be more different. Not only that, but Kelly has serious issues with Meghan’s good friends Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador and has chosen to stand by Vicki Gunvalson (Meghan’s least favorite person in the cast) no matter what.
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.
This week, Lydia was largely absent from the show, as she and her family frolicked in Hawaii – where they discuss sexy ladies and vasectomies. In her blog, Lydia explains why she and hubby Doug felt it was necessary to give their boys a sex talk…on the beach.
Thanks to Peggy Sulahian, Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador had a night off from making the most offensive moves during the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Peggy actually had the nerve to pinch Meghan Edmonds’ lips shut while she was talking and even though Kelly wasn’t there for that moment, she watched the episode and was very amused by it.
Not only did Kelly find the lip pinching to be entertaining television, but she also has a lot of serious shade to throw at Meghan and her husband Jim Edmonds.
I couldn’t believe what I was watching when Peggy Sulahian pinched Meghan Edmonds’s lips shut during the last Real Housewives of Orange County episode. First off, who does that? Second, Peggy had no idea what she was even reacting to since she just met Meghan that night and she has zero relationships with anyone in the cast.
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!
I suppose Lydia needed another getaway to redeem herself after the Real Housewives Of Orange County star destroyed their recent trip to Hawaii with constant embarrassing and awkward sex talks. Cause um, that’s totally, like glittery-sparkly-fun if you’re a kid! #sarcasm
While Tamra Judge has been vacationing in Aruba, her daughter Sidney hopped on Facebook to blast Tamra’s mothering and lashed out at the Real Housewives Of Orange County star for putting reality TV before their family.
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. You can read Sidney’s full statement here.
