Lydia McLaughlin

Out of all of the alums to ask back to Real Housewives of Orange County, Lydia McLaughlin was the most random choice. She was only on for one season, had zero story line, and did not have any genuine friendships with anyone else in the cast. Sure, she has great hair and a hilarious mom, but what is Lydia really bringing to the table other than attributes already exemplified by other cast members? Seriously though, let me know.

Tamra Judge is now all about her newfound Christianity, Meghan Edmonds is the nice one caught in the middle of the cliques, and now we have Lydia to contribute things that we already have? That makes no sense. Yes, Lydia is obviously a sweet person, but she just isn’t the best person for this show full of women who love arguing and gossiping.

Tamra Judge

If you are looking for an excuse to get wasted on a Monday night, just take a sip of your drink every time Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson talk shit about each other on Real Housewives of Orange County. It would be a dangerous drinking game since it is pretty clear that these on-again-off-again friends are very much off these days and they are constantly insulting each other.

As expected, Tamra is not going to let her frienemy get away with the comments she made at her expense during the Season 12 premiere episode.

Tamra Judge Face Lift

Some Housewives are very reluctant to cop to cosmetic procedures. And then there’s Tamra Judge who is so not one of those Housewives. She was looking radiant during her recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live so of course Andy Cohen asked her what she did to her face. She didn’t credit her makeup artist and talk about contouring, she just came right out with it and said that she got a face lift – a mere two weeks ago!

Not only is Tamra open when it comes to talking about her face lift but now she is showing her fans exactly what she went through by sharing photos on social media.

Kelly Dodd is back, but she’s not the same shrieking harridan she was the last time around. She’s got new boobs, a rejuvenated vagina, and a whole new attitude. This season, Kelly crowns Shannon Beador as the super crazy one. Who didn’t see that coming?! In addition to giving the details on Shannon, Kelly also reveals some juicy gossip about Heather Dubrow.

Starting with Shannon, she was so bonkers, the Real Housewives Of Orange County star flings a plate full of steak at Kelly. HA! “You’re on that Shannon roller coaster,” Kelly reveals. “We get into it and a steak goes flying. She slams a plate down. And they said that it was the loudest thing ever. So, yeah, [Shannon] loses her s–t and there is no going back from it.”

Well, Shannon has animosity over steak – after all David prefers it to quinoa

Real Housewives of Orange County returned with a vengeance.

Right off the bat, the battle lines have been drawn with Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd on one side and Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador on the other. They all came out swinging with the shade throwing and blatant insults.

As per usual, Kelly did not hold back during the premiere episode and even after it aired.

Shannon struggles with weight and marriage

The first episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County season was a rough one for Shannon Beador and it’s clear that the rest of the season will not be much easier. After renewing her vows with her husband (a reality TV rite of passage at this point), Shannon’s marriage is rocky again and she even blamed nemesis Vicki Gunvalson for her weight gain.

It seems like Shannon’s approach has drastically changed since filming wrapped since she is actually taking responsibility for gaining weight and she refuses to mention Vicki by name- which is a stark contrast from blaming her for just about everything to ever happen in the history of the universe.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 premiere reminded us all that it’s Vicki Gunvalson’s world and we’re all just living in it. Everything on this show revolves around Vicki. Shannon Beador even had the nerve to blame Vicki for her weight gain, which is absurd. Needless to say, it looks like this season will be a battle of Vicki and Kelly Dodd vs. Shannon and Tamra Judge.

The first episode was full of shit talking, and of course everyone is trying to get the fandom on their side with their Bravo blog posts.

Last night was a big night for Bravo viewers. Real Housewives of Orange County returned for its twelfth season and part one of the Southern Charm reunion aired. That’s why it made so much sense for Tamra Judge and Shep Rose to stop by the Watch What Happens Live clubhouse to talk with Andy Cohen.

Of course that included Tamra throwing shade at Vicki Gunvalson and Shep showcasing his extensive vocabulary.
