When the last Real Housewives of Orange County season started, I could not stand Kelly Dodd. As more episodes aired, I grew to be even more annoyed. Then there were was a slight shift in the tide and I actually felt bad for Kelly during that hellish Ireland trip.
Even though I couldn’t believe Kelly brought up Tamra Judge’s relationship with her estranged daughter on top of pretty much everything else Kelly did before that trip, I still felt like Tamra, Heather Dubrow, and Shannon Beador were ganging up on Kelly and trying to instigate her. I am still trying to figure out how I feel about Kelly, but she definitely earned her spot and allowed us all to move on from the Brooks Ayers saga that was still lingering from the season before. That’s why I’m pretty pleased Andy Cohen confirmed Kelly’s return.
They referred to Heather as “Fancy Pants” for a reason… Well, many reasons, but one of those was her penchant for throwing over-the-top events. That’s why it’s only fitting that she will be hosting a show about party planning.
As for the new shows, oh boy, are there some surprises – Fredrik Eklund and Bethenny Frankel teaming up to scout, buy, and design amazing properties, Shep Rose looking for love, Ryan Serhant training sales agents and showing off his skills, and more. Check out the list of new shows below.
It’s not unusual for people to undergo plastic surgery after they start cashing in those reality star paychecks. In fact, it’s almost a rite of passage to get your breasts done if you’re a cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County. Usually, the ladies are amping up the volume when it comes to that area, but Kelly Dodd actually got a breast reduction.
She also got her breasts lifted as well. So maybe she and Tamra Judge can bond over having something in common? Doubtful, but you never know with these ladies. Anyway, it’s safe to expect this surgery to serve as one of Kelly’s story lines next season since RHOC is currently filming.
I hate to be a hater, but it’s usually pretty tough for me to take any Real Housewives side projects seriously. As much as I love the housewives (which is a lot), it’s difficult for me to think them as actresses, lifestyle experts, entrepreneurs, or whatever else they claim to be. With that said, six current and former Housewives are set to star in a sitcom together.
Yes, you read that right- not a reality show, but a sitcom. Still, the show is a reality TV satire, so they aren’t straying too far from the norm.
Vicki Gunvalson is always bragging about her success in business and how much/how often she works, but none of her side businesses ever seem to work out for her. I figured she would be making tons of money putting her name on products with the Real Housewives franchise behind her, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. That has not stopped her though, since Vicki has a new line of home products in the works.
