Shannon Beador

Shannon Beador wants us all to know, again, that she will never forgive Vicki Gunvalson! And after seeing Vicki mock her on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County, Shannon is “Done!” She’s “F–king DONE!” OK, just kidding – she’s actually still not done talking about Vicki, but she is opening a restaurant.

“One of my least favorite parts of the show is watching back what other people say about you,” shares Shannon, who failed Reality TV 101. “It can get quite frustrating and hurtful when people don’t accurately describe your intentions and say cruel things.”

Lydia & Peggy

Even though Lydia McLaughlin returned to Real Housewives of Orange County under the guise of being a self-proclaimed “friendship whisperer,” she’s come across as more of a shit stirrer than anything. Weeks after the episode with Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd’s confrontation at the Quiet Woman aired, Lydia is still defending herself and insisting that she didn’t intend to cause drama. Sure, Lydia. Likely story…

Aside from shamelessly promoting her magazine, her main story line this season is her supposed quest to reunite the friendships in the cast- even though she herself never kept in touch with Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge when she left the show and she isn’t close to anyone in the cast. It all seems way out of bounds for her take on, but she is still really pushing this “friendship whisperer” nonsense.

Kelly Dodd makes amends with Shannon

Even though we are only a few episodes into this Real Housewives of Orange County season, it is still hard to figure out Peggy Sulahian. None of her metaphors or jokes make any sense. Is she trying to be funny or does she just actually not know what’s going on?

As of now, it’s hard to tell, but one person who does not seem to be a fan of Peggy’s is Kelly Dodd. Sure, that hasn’t really come across in the episodes we’ve seen so far, but Kelly definitely makes it clear that she is not too fond of the new girl these days.

Peggy joins RHOC

In all honesty Peggy Sulahian is no contender for Rookie of the Year in the Real Housewives franchise. None of her jokes land. She has no relationships with anyone on Real Housewives of Orange County and she doesn’t really have a story line so far. Nevertheless, the most redeeming thing Peggy brought to the show was her solid relationship with husband Diko Sulahian.

Sure, their first episode was super obnoxious with the gift giving and then there was that ostentatious Lamborghini party, but they really had some sweet moments when he accompanied her for her breast reconstruction consultation. My point is that even though she really isn’t wowing me at the moment, most of us can agree that her marriage seems pretty solid…. except for the fact that Peggy and Diko might not actually be married.

Jacqueline

Whether you loved her or hated her, Jacqueline Laurita was the main source of drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey last year. Without her antics, there would have been nothing to tweet about and nothing for the ladies to argue about at the reunion. Sure, it was tough to watch most of the time, but she at least gave the fans something to have an opinion about… even if your opinion wasn’t positive.

Nevertheless, even the most die hard fans of the show have to admit that it was in a real rut last season so it will be interesting to see how things play out now that Jacqueline is out of the picture.

Vicki Gunvalson

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.

First, though, there had to be a re-connection between Shannon “Poncho” Beador and Kelly “Rejuvenated” Dodd. Yeah, that turned into an everlasting friendship!

Vicki Gunvalson lives 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!

Peggy Sulahian Defends Pinching Meghan Edmonds' Lips Closed; Says She Was Making Vicki Gunvalson Uncomfortable

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 Edmonds of 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.

Shannon teaches Sophie to drive

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.

Not only that but she lost her previous alliance member Heather Dubrow and she still refuses to speak to Vicki Gunvalson even though they’re cast members on the same reality TV show.
