Real Housewives Of Orange County is a world unlike any other. It is a world in which one hires a premiere cake creator to design a cake shaped like a bottle of champagne. Then one reserves a seat on a private jet to fly said cake to the launch of their said champagne. Then, come to find out, the cake is actually fake – as in not really a cake, but a Styrofoam mold that resembles a cake, and the champagne is not really champagne, but a bubbly wine. Why so much precaution over a fake cake? Styrofoam robustly withstands grubby, unskilled hands of kindergarten crafters like Meghan Edmonds, so certainly it doesn’t need a seatbelt on a private jet, or it’s own personal valet. That’s just one of the many things that ponders me from last night’s episode. There are many, many more…
Heather Dubrow is headed to Napa to launch her champagne, which is not actually champagne, because it is not produced in France, therefore it must be called “Methode Champenoise.” Basically it’s bubbly wine. And calling bubbly wine “methode champenoise” is like calling a car port a “porte-cochere.” You can put fondant on a Styrofoam mold, but it’s still Styrofoam mold! Heather – accept it: you made a designer wine cooler!
Tamra and Eddie hit up Mykonos first and then headed over to Santorini. They’ve had (sort bad) sushi, did some shopping and a whole lot of lounging around and relaxing, as well as still getting in their morning workouts. Tamra has been sharing daily pics on Instagram, including some AMAZING photos and videos of the views. And a whole lot of swimsuit pics, naturally. Take a look at their fun vacay below!
Vicki Gunvalson is standing by her man and slamming naysayers who accuse Brooks Ayers of faking cancer! Brooks may be broker than a joke, but he certainly isn’t depraved enough to fake terminal illness, people! #NoICantBelieveThisIsAStorylineEither
This season Brooks comes under fire from Vicki’s fellow Housewives – specifically newbie Meghan Edmonds – who accuse him of making the whole thing up! Even Vicki’s daughter Briana even begins to question Brooks’ diagnosis and confides in Tamra Barney that she believes he may not really be sick!
In case you were feeling stressed out about the lack of available Real Housewives wines (and other sparkly alcoholic beverages), Heather Dubrow is launching her own champagne, not to be confused with Fabellini. Appropriately this champagne is named after Heather’s 5-year-old daughter Colette, who leads Heather to drink. Heather commissions a giant champagne bottle-shaped cake, that she is flying in its own seat on a private plane to Napa for the launch party of Colette Champagne. All of the ladies are invited. Lifestyles of the rich and guest role on canceled sitcom hopefully famous!
Literally fell asleep – snoooooze, snore, zzzzzzzzzz, yawn at the thought of another Housewives hawking wine storyline.
It is the season of Tamra Judge‘s redemption – after becoming a born-again Christian, she has found Jesus and it has saved her from a life of being a hater!
After losing all her friends and getting in fights with all her Real Housewives Of Orange County co-stars, Tamra recognized it was time to make a change. This season viewers will watch her get baptized. Facing criticisms that her new-found religion was nothing but a storyline to gain viewer sympathy, Tamra insists she has changed. And it’s definitely real.
“I knew the journey I was on,” Tamra describes of wanting to make things right from her past. Although Tamra admits she has long way to go – like figuring out how to attend church every Sunday – but she claims she’s had a total “mindset change” since being baptized. “I think in the past six months I’ve felt like a new person. I’m not saying like, I’m perfect and I’m not saying I’m at church every single Sunday. I try to go every Sunday, I’m joining a Bible study …”
We have an all new photo roundup for you today that includes Kyle Richards and so many more! Kyle brought Portia and a friend (family member?) along for the premiere of Matilda the musical in Los Angeles.
Heather Dubrow is all about expanding her empire this season on the Real Housewives of Orange County. One overpriced sink at a time! She shares updates on her massive new home, husband Terry Dubrow’s success on E!’s Botched, and her friendship with new castmate Meghan Edmonds in her Bravo blog. Heather begins, “As you can see our house is coming along. We are hoping to be in by December – fingers crossed! It’s been fun, but a tremendous amount of work. I’m excited for you all to see the progress as the season goes on! (And check out my newly designed website heatherdubrow.com for video updates!).” Not one to shy away from the limelight himself, Terry is becoming a reality star in his own right, as Heather notes: “Terry is doing amazingly well and BOTCHED has become a huge hit on E!”
Noting that her friendship with Meghan is newer than some reports have suggested, Heather clarifies, “Terry and I have been friends with Meghan’s husband Jimmy for many years. I didn’t know Meghan very well when we started filming, but I really enjoyed getting to know her, and you will too!! She has been an amazing addition to the Orange County cast!” So, I guess Heather and Meghan remain allies on RHOC this year? Sounds like it. From the sounds of Meghan’s blogs and interviews so far, there’s reason to believe #teamHeatherTamraMeghan will be taking on Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson throughout filming.
As season 10 veteran on the Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson is well versed in the ups and downs of reality television. As a twice-divorced woman who’s had to pay both ex-husbands off post-marriage, she is also not adverse to fiercely protecting her assets when it comes to her new living arrangement with Brooks Ayers – even if it means getting a lawyer involved!
In her Bravo blog, Vicki explains the reasons behind, and terms of, her cohabitation agreement with Brooks. “I have been divorced twice, and both times I had to pay my husband’s off,” she explains, adding, “I never received child support with my first marriage, and with my 2nd marriage I had to pay Donn alimony. This way, I am protected if my relationship doesn’t work out with Brooks. We have a legal binding agreement that my divorce attorney drafted, and Brooks signed without any hesitation. This eliminates any miscommunication in a relationship once you put it all out there about what your expectations are, it’s one less thing to worry about. It’s a pre-nup without the ‘nup’.”
