This Friday Vicki and a mystery man were spotted at The Ranch, an Anaheim, CA restaurant. In stealthy photos captured of the two it appears the Real Housewives Of Orange County star is holding hands with the man later identified as Smith Walker. That name cannot be real – it sounds like it was manufactured from a BuzzFeed Quiz about what your name would be if you were a liquor.
Heather Dubrow is on fire right now! The Real Housewives of Orange County star has been a busy busy bee since filming ended for season 10. Heather has not only been supervising the building of her mega-mansion with Dr. Dubrow, she’s been co-hosting a successful after show for his E! series, Botched, called Botched: Post Op, then there’s the new skin care line she and Terry launched. Heather also debuted a podcast recently – Heather Dubrow’s World – and it’s already a smashing success.
Heather shared yesterday that her podcast is #3 on iTunes already! After just one episode.
Heather kicks off her podcast with Five Minutes of Heather, a look back at how she came to live in California. “I do come from New York,” she says. “I was actually a theater major in college, and I thought I was going to go to Broadway. But we had a friend of the family who was producing Divorce Court in Florida – Yes, I know you may think Divorce Court was real. I think it was based on actual cases, but… – I had two episodes. In one, I played an agoraphobic ex-ballerina lesbian. It was a script. It was an acting gig.” Ha! Ha! I think this is way more entertaining than rehashing the Vicki and Brooks drama for the millionth time!
E! has been airing snippets of Brooks’ interview on their site and dropping bits of it during evening airings of their news show. Yesterday Brooks shared “proof” with them about his cancer in the form of a supposed chemotherapy bill, and verbally confirmed that he has Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and says his lesions are gone. He won’t say he’s in remission, but things are “normalized.”
The Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion has left a bad taste in my mouth. Right after I wrote this I ate like 16 pieces of Halloween candy. It’s my version of cleansing.
The highlight from Part 3, if you could call it that, was Vicki Gunvalson finally admitting she doesn’t believe Brooks Ayers has cancer. She “covered” for him all season because she did believe him until very recently. The other highlight was that no one screamed in decibels so shrill Andy’s dog howled backstage. Briana describes Vicki’s uncannily calm demeanor as being “in a state of shock” over how much of her life Vicki has messed up over Brooks. Or the five half a Xanax she took.
The low points: Everything else. Including Meghan King Edmonds‘ hair – why must it look like a Kim Z Generation 1 wig? The more I look at it, the more I see bad imitation senator’s wife.
Lizzie Rovsek didn’t attend the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion and has been on the sidelines this season, keeping herself removed from the drama and the accusations, but that doesn’t mean Lizzie lacks an opinion on the happenings.
Discussing her perception of the reunion and the highs (and very, very lows) of this season, Lizzie has one major takeaway observation: “It seems like all season everyone can say whatever they want, no matter how hurtful or inappropriate it may seem; but as soon as Vicki opens her mouth everyone is so quick to be appalled and shocked.”
Last year, Slade Smiley threw Gretchen a surprise birthday party, earning himself the title of “the most amazing fiance ever.” While we wait to find out what Slade has planned for the birthday girl this year, we decided to take a look back at the former Real Housewives of Orange County star through the years.
Gretchen joined TheReal Housewives of Orange County in 2008, and while she’s been off the show for two years now, she’s still around. Gretchen is very much around – she can sniff out a room full of d-listers like no other – so there’s no shortage of photo ops. Take a walk down memory lane with us below.
