RHOC

Meghan apologizes to Heather

The whole country was saddened by the news of the mass shooting in Las Vegas at the Jason Aldean concert last night. With such a high death toll, there are so many people that were friends and families of the victims.

Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Meghan Edmonds came close to being one of those people when her step daughter Hayley was 0ne of the fans at the Jason Aldean concert during the shooting. Thankfully Hayley is safe and sound, but Meghan and Jim Edmonds came very close to experiencing the loss that fifty plus families have as a result of that act of horrific violence.

Lydia is left out

Before we get into tonight’s new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Lydia McLaughlin is weighing in on last week’s episode, mainly the drama with Shannon Beador. Lydia is tired of Shannon saying one thing but doing another and is convinced that Shannon is living for the drama.

She shares, “This episode was frustrating for me to watch because Shannon is telling her side of the story of what transpired between us at the dinner with the girls and it is quite different than mine.”

Meghan and Kelly make amends

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan Edmonds is hanging up her investigative hat and leaving the medical record digging to someone else for once. In this week’s episode reflection, Meghan touched on her desire for a drama-free season, her communication issues with Peggy Sulahian and more.

Don’t call Meghan shit stirrer, as she claims to be trying really hard to avoid drama at all costs. Pinky swear. “I’ve seen all of your tweets and comments over the last couple weeks and I know a lot of you think I’ve been trying to stir the pot, especially when it came to my fight with Kelly. But remember earlier in the season when I said I wasn’t looking for any drama and didn’t want to stir anything up? I meant it! And I think this week’s episode clearly shows that. I’m all for taking the high road to avoid drama and put an end to petty fights.”

Vicki Hears a Rumor about Tamra

She may not have been around for any scenes on this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, but Vicki Gunvalson has plenty to say about her co-stars in her latest blog.

Vicki calls her co-stars childish for ripping on her diagnosis of influenza B. She shares, “I spent the week in bed, with Steve playing nurse. When I went to urgent care, the doctor diagnosed me with influenza B. I didn’t know there were different strains of influenza, it was something new to me.” She slams, “For those ladies to who mocked me, make fun of me and question if it was an A, B, or C was juvenile. They acted like a bunch of children in a school cafeteria, I was embarrassed for them.”

Kelly Dodd with husband Michael Dodd

The curse of marriage and reality TV strikes again! Kelly Dodd announced today that she is divorcing husband Michael Dodd (again) after 11 years of marriage.

“Our marriage is over, I’m out of there!” a gleeful Kelly confirmed in a statement. “It’s best if we went our separate ways and concentrate on our daughter.”

Peggy

It seems we can’t go for one season or even one episode with some sort of cancer-related drama on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Although this week it’s not about Brooks Ayers for once. Newbie Peggy Sulahian is addressing her breast cancer diagnosis and her frustration with two-faced co-stars.

Peggy shares in her blog that she feels Shannon Beador is weighed down by her marriage troubles and hopes she finds a way to cope, “Kelly may be onto something when she said that Shannon is frustrated about her marriage and her self-esteem is getting in the way. As women, we carry a heavy toll and when we get burdened down, many things fall apart. As the anchor to any family. Shannon needs to find some time for herself and deal with her issues.”

Lydia McLaughlin

Knowing that Lydia McLaughlin was going to be one of the guests on Watch What Happens Live, I was expecting a soft interview with lots of shameless plugs for her magazine. Surprisingly enough, only the latter was true. Fans who called in and tweeted questions for the Real Housewives of Orange County star really went in with the questions.

Lydia was almost as flustered as Shannon Beador was at Ava’s birthday party when Lydia kept mentioning Vicki Gunvalson. Lydia was almost as thrown off as Shannon and Tamra Judge were after Kelly Dodd “unexpectedly” showed up to dinner when Lydia actually invited her. I’m trying (and failed) to think of some way to incorporate the words “pot stirrer” into that old “pot meet kettle” expression, but if you’ve been watching RHOC, then you probably get what I’m going for: viewers were stirring shit up with someone who has been accused of stirring shit up.

Real Housewives of Orange County Recap

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County seemed to have a lot going on. Tucked under the little flaps of skin were a million hidden clues, and insinuations, and tepidly it seemed like some pretty interesting shifts were taking place.

For instance, suddenly Tamra Judge is annoyed with Shannon Beador. I say suddenly, but really it’s just that she’s suddenly like perma-annoyed. I get it, obviously – Shannon is a stage five clinger who’s hot glue-gunned to your ass like a sequined bikini in a fitness competition. Anyway, it’s obvious that Tamra is up to something big and she’s not quite aligning herself to anyone, is she? After complaining about Peggy Sulahian, she’s suddenly liking her?! “Peggy’s got balls,” Tamra tells us, smirking.
