I made sure to wear my eclipse safety glasses while staring at the California sun, so I wouldn’t damage my eyes and miss seeing the drama on last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County. It’s a good thing too, because Kelly Dodd was wearing scrunchies on her wrists!
Last night was certainly a Me! Me! Me! episode – aren’t they all? – but this one was especially bad! It started with Vicki Gunvlason announcing that Briana’s uterus and Mike’s sperm belong to her! Cause Coto Insurance needs more worker bees to take over the family hive.
Aka, Vicki needs more grandchildren. NOW! NOW! NOW! Her sage advice to Mike is “date to mate,” as in he should only be sleeping with women he plans to reproduce with. Not before they sign a baby-nup, right?! I have a feeling Mike has listened to “Gold Digger” many-a-times and ain’t gonna get stuck with no 18 years. Either that or no woman wants to get stuck with Vicki for the next 18 years!
Vicki starts off on a positive note by sharing what a “calm balance” her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, brings to her life and how much she loves being able to help Briana with the boys when she has to work a long shift. She then dives into the drama of this week’s episode. “I’m glad that Meghan invited me to the Sip-N-See to see Aspen and to put aside our differences from the past.” She adds, “I don’t necessarily agree with everything she did, but now that time has gone by I can reflect on what I did wrong as well.”
Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge are still doing what they can to ignore Vicki Gunvalson, even though they are all on the same reality TV show together. Peggy Sulahian is still being super rude and making zero sense. It was a relatively calm episode in comparison to others this season, but there was still a lot going on.
At this point in the season, Peggy Sulahian doesn’t have much going on in Real Housewives of Orange County. She’s not close with any of these women and her main story line is still abundantly unclear. Hopefully she brings it because at this point the insensitive jokes are just falling flat and pinching Meghan Edmonds’ lips was far from iconic. Give me a table flip or throw a dish.
Even though Peggy is picking at (and pinching) Meghan in her quest to befriend the OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson, at this point she is pretty much dispensable even though she’s the topic of some horrible rumors outside of the show.
Shannon Beador wants us all to know, again, that she will never forgive Vicki Gunvalson! And after seeing Vicki mock her on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County, Shannon is “Done!” She’s “F–king DONE!” OK, just kidding – she’s actually still not done talking about Vicki, but she is opening a restaurant.
“One of my least favorite parts of the show is watching back what other people say about you,” shares Shannon, who failed Reality TV 101. “It can get quite frustrating and hurtful when people don’t accurately describe your intentions and say cruel things.”
Aside from shamelessly promoting her magazine, her main story line this season is her supposed quest to reunite the friendships in the cast- even though she herself never kept in touch with Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge when she left the show and she isn’t close to anyone in the cast. It all seems way out of bounds for her take on, but she is still really pushing this “friendship whisperer” nonsense.
Even though we are only a few episodes into this Real Housewives of Orange Countyseason, it is still hard to figure out Peggy Sulahian. None of her metaphors or jokes make any sense. Is she trying to be funny or does she just actually not know what’s going on?
As of now, it’s hard to tell, but one person who does not seem to be a fan of Peggy’s is Kelly Dodd. Sure, that hasn’t really come across in the episodes we’ve seen so far, but Kelly definitely makes it clear that she is not too fond of the new girl these days.
Sure, their first episode was super obnoxious with the gift giving and then there was that ostentatious Lamborghini party, but they really had some sweet moments when he accompanied her for her breast reconstruction consultation. My point is that even though she really isn’t wowing me at the moment, most of us can agree that her marriage seems pretty solid…. except for the fact that Peggy and Diko might not actually be married.
