Kelly gets vaginal rejuvenation

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 Real Housewives of Orange County - Season 12

The current Real Housewives of Orange County season 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.

Yes, that’s right. All seven women in the cast actually collaborated on a project together. There’s no word on whose idea it was or how it all came to fruition, but Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Meghan Edmonds, Lydia McLaughlin, and Peggy Sulahian all filmed a video asking their fans and followers to donate to the American Red Cross.

Tamra & Lydia spartan race

During the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge invited Lydia McLaughlin and Shannon Beador to do a race with her and her husband. The husbands Eddie Judge, Doug McLaughlin, and David Beador participated as well, but there was a catch: Shannon did not join. So David ended up fifth wheeling his way through the race, which I guess is better than going out to dinner with two couples, but it was still kind of odd.

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.

Shannon Beador Nosebleed - Rushed to hospital

Another day, another health drama for Shannon Beador. The Real Housewives Of Orange County star was taking her daughter, Sophie, for her driving test when she had a psychotic break nosebleed and was rushed to the hospital. Seriously.

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 casseroles sweat pants in her time of immense need?

Tamra Judge

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.

Vicki Gunvalson son in law Ryan Culberson Marine Corps

Even though Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter Briana Culberson has become an honorary cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County at this point, the fans haven’t seen too much of her husband Ryan Culberson because he has been away with the Marine Corps. Now he is back and ready for some time with the fam.

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.

Peggy Grabs Meghan's Lips

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.

Meghan St. Patty's Day Makeup

Now that she’s actually back in the mix with (some of) the ladies of The Real Housewives Of Orange County, Meghan Edmonds has a front row seat to the shifting alliances and drama that are plaguing this group. But this week offered up a surprising moment between Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd, which Meghan admits she was shocked to witness.

Before discussing that St. Patrick’s Day miracle, Meghan celebrates the idea of throwing herself back into the modeling world, even if it is somewhat of a pipe dream. She jokes, “It’s fun to (pretend to) be a model sometimes and for me, it’s so important for my mental health to work and play outside the home.”
