This week’s Real Housewives Of Orange County seemed like a bridge episode, linking us from the crazy plate tossing of yesterday to the Sip n’ See snubbing of tomorrow. Perhaps more than in any other season, battle lines have been drawn between the ladies, and Shannon Beador says she has no plans of crossing them anytime soon – especially when it comes to Vicki Gunvalson. Her position this season: Speak no Vicki, See No Vicki, Hear No Vicki.
Shannon does at least have room in her heart for babies! She gushes about meeting Meghan Edmond’s daughter, Aspen, for the first time. “Tamra [Judge] and I haven’t seen Meghansince she had her baby so it was nice to finally reconnect with her at lunch. I don’t think I have met a happier baby than Aspen, she is absolutely precious!”
Tamra Judge‘s strained relationship with her ex-husband Simon Barneyand her daughter Sidney Barney has been a big part of Tamra’s Real Housewives of Orange Countyjourney. Both relationships have been a roller coaster and just when we thought things had turned a corner after Tamra was invited to attend Sidney’s graduation in June, Sidney speaks out and slams her mother’s actions.
Last month Tamra shared the photo above and revealed that she was in attendance for Sidney’s graduation. She captioned it, “So many things to be proud of this month. Our family has come a long way and I couldn’t be happier. Simon and I are so proud of these amazing, smart, funny,beautiful & crazy kids. Congrats Sidney your smile lightens up the room and your future is so bright. #gaveituptojesus #2017 #family.”
Well, Sidney is not happy about the post and she shared in a new public Facebook message that she is NOT on good terms with Tamra. And doesn’t appreciate Tamra’s efforts to make this part of her reality TV storyline.
Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County newbie Peggy Sulahian demonstrated that she doesn’t have to be your mother to be your muva! If you left your manners in the car when you came to her event, Peggy will surely get out the bar of scented soap you sell in your pop-up boutique to wash your mouth out. Peggy certainly taught Meghan Edmonds that children should be seen and not heard! Exactly Meg, just stand there and look all ‘I’ve never had a baby and look at my chessboard inspired dress, cause I’m like smart! And on quest for TRUTH! Justice!”
But first there’s Tamra Judge, who got judged by a parrot that called her “old” as she walked into a restaurant to meet a baby looking like an escapee from a biker bar. How could anyone even see Aspen underneath the giant bow that ate the baby’s face!? I hope that’s not catching…
This season of Real Housewives of Orange County, as usual, is going to be a fun (and confusing) game of who is on what team during any given episode. It changes so often that we need a score card. In her blog this week, Kelly Dodd expresses her frustration over Tamra Judge talking crap behind her back, Shannon Beador‘s desire to get her wasted all the time, and explains why she’s so angry and irked at Meghan King Edmonds.
Before Kelly dives into the drama of the latest episode, she gives us a little TMI about her vaginal tightening procedure. “You guys are probably wondering why I got my vagina tightened? I had originally discussed the technology and procedure with Dr. Niccole at CosmetiCare, thinking it might help my mother. Mom wasn’t interested, but I was. Most women I know have a problem with “leaking”, which can happen as we age or after having a baby. The walls of the vagina contain collagen fibers, which often lose tissue tone and elasticity. It can be embarrassing and stressful in social settings to leak urine when sneezing, coughing, jumping, and standing up, etc.”
After three episodes on her own, Meghan Edmonds finally interacted with another cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County and of all people it was Kelly Dodd. Meghan shared that she texted Kelly to ask if she was having an affair and that she got super offended when Kelly told her that she heard Meghan’s husband Jim Edmondswas having an affair.
In my eyes, they basically committed the same offense, but Meghan thinks it’s a million times worse of Kelly to say because she was pregnant – which seems like a major stretch to me. Fortunately for Meghan (as a person) this whole exchanged happened via text message and before the season started filming. Unfortunately for Meghan (as a reality TV show cast member) this whole exchanged happened via text message and before the season started filming and she doesn’t have a strong story line so far.
Vicki shared a photo of her packed up car on Instagram. “Got it all packed into two cars completely full of food and alcohol! Can’t wait to spend the weekend in the desert with 28 family and friends, some flying in from Chicago, and [Steve’s] family including 1 from Germany! #rhoc #rhocseason12#mervgriffinestate #family #desert #palmsprings #leftrightcenter #alcohol #itsgonnabehot #fishing #fourwheelers #woohoo” Look below to see the pics Vicki and son-in-law Ryan Culberson, who took the picture above with his drone, shared on Instagram.
Once again, I found myself being jealous of one of the Real Housewives kids having an over the top birthday party. First Tamra Judge’s daughter Ava had a unicorn themed party in a beer garden. Now, Lydia McLaughlin’s son is living it up at a movie themed party, complete with a red carpet and screening for his friends.
I would kill to have one of these parties to celebrate my birthday. Nevertheless, Lydia’s party this week didn’t really move the plot forward on Real Housewives of Orange County. Good for her though, this is the one week she isn’t stirring up involved in the drama.
Vicki Gunvalson may be the OG of OC, but she’s been hard pressed to find many allies this season of The Real Housewives Of Orange County. Thus, meeting newcomer Peggy Sulahian was just what the fake cancer doctor ordered! After meeting Peggy for all of thirty minutes, Vicki claims they share a deep bond – a bond which was immediately formed over the recent passing of both womens’ parents.
Vicki shares, “This week I met Peggy and Diko. They were so sweet and so kind that I had an immediate connection to them both. I’m really glad that Lydia [McLaughlin] invited them to Stirling’s birthday party as she had talked so highly of them before. When Peggy told me of the recent passing of her father, it brought me back to how I felt when I heard my mother unexpectedly passed as well.”
