I’m pretty sure that Shannon Beador has said that she’s “done” with Vicki Gunvalson and wants nothing to do with her at least once during every Real Housewives of Orange County episode this season. On one hand, that’s completely understandable given all the shit that’s gone down between them. On the other hand, she could leave the show if she really wants to avoid Vicki.
Fortunately for Shannon, this last episode was way better for her than the first few from this season. Throwing a plate full of food at a restaurant and getting into a screaming match at a toddler’s birthday party were not the best looks for her, so I don’t blame her for chilling out a little bit after all that went down.
Even though it was reported everywhere that Meghan Edmonds would not be returning to Real Housewives of Orange County this season, she is back. She didn’t interact with any other cast members for the first three episodes, but she is back and even she thinks this season is boring.
And that is something most of us can agree on. Minus Shannon Beador’s iconic plate toss, this season has been a total snooze. Hopefully it picks up.
First up, since Lydia loves Doug’s balls, she wants us to know that she doesn’t actually want to get them cut off – she just wants them to stop producing viable sperm. Even though Doug is the “leader of our family,” baby number four is not on Lydia’s radar! “I had called and made Doug his consultation for his vasectomy because I knew he never would.”
I made sure to wear my eclipse safety glasses while staring at the California sun, so I wouldn’t damage my eyes and miss seeing the drama on last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County. It’s a good thing too, because Kelly Dodd was wearing scrunchies on her wrists!
Last night was certainly a Me! Me! Me! episode – aren’t they all? – but this one was especially bad! It started with Vicki Gunvlason announcing that Briana’s uterus and Mike’s sperm belong to her! Cause Coto Insurance needs more worker bees to take over the family hive.
Aka, Vicki needs more grandchildren. NOW! NOW! NOW! Her sage advice to Mike is “date to mate,” as in he should only be sleeping with women he plans to reproduce with. Not before they sign a baby-nup, right?! I have a feeling Mike has listened to “Gold Digger” many-a-times and ain’t gonna get stuck with no 18 years. Either that or no woman wants to get stuck with Vicki for the next 18 years!
Vicki starts off on a positive note by sharing what a “calm balance” her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, brings to her life and how much she loves being able to help Briana with the boys when she has to work a long shift. She then dives into the drama of this week’s episode. “I’m glad that Meghan invited me to the Sip-N-See to see Aspen and to put aside our differences from the past.” She adds, “I don’t necessarily agree with everything she did, but now that time has gone by I can reflect on what I did wrong as well.”
Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge are still doing what they can to ignore Vicki Gunvalson, even though they are all on the same reality TV show together. Peggy Sulahian is still being super rude and making zero sense. It was a relatively calm episode in comparison to others this season, but there was still a lot going on.
At this point in the season, Peggy Sulahian doesn’t have much going on in Real Housewives of Orange County. She’s not close with any of these women and her main story line is still abundantly unclear. Hopefully she brings it because at this point the insensitive jokes are just falling flat and pinching Meghan Edmonds’ lips was far from iconic. Give me a table flip or throw a dish.
Even though Peggy is picking at (and pinching) Meghan in her quest to befriend the OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson, at this point she is pretty much dispensable even though she’s the topic of some horrible rumors outside of the show.
