The discomfort of watching Shannonand David Beador’smarriage crumble on camera during the Real Housewives of Orange Country is off the charts this season (or maybe that’s just me?). This week, Shannon reflects on how tough it is to watch “every single negative moment” she has with David, but reassures viewers that there are good times ahead. She also claims that David is really trying to make their marriage work. Well, I don’t know if the viewers need to be reassured of anything at this point, but let’s dig in to her blog nonetheless!
“What an episode,” begins Shannon. “Such joy and such sorrow all at the same time.” Happy that Tamra Judge visited Vicki Gunvalson before she traveled to her mother’s funeral, Shannon also touches on the “unique relationship” that her own daughter, Stella, has with “Aunt Vicki.” She shares that her girls “of course heard everything that had happened when Vicki was at the bunco party and Stella took my phone and wrote Vicki the sweetest, heartfelt text the next day.”
Tamra is preparing to go to Northern California with her mom to witness her granddaughter’s birth. Sarah, Ryan’s wife, has a scheduled c-section and Tamra is bummed Ryan will be in the delivery room instead of the TAM-MA. After all WHO has more experience with babies?! #Astro.
The whole situation is a bit bittersweet, however, because Vicki is leaving for Chicago for her mother’s funeral and Tamra is sad she won’t be able to attend. Tamra deals with her grief by focusing on how she’ll be the hottest grandma in the OC and that her mom Sandra will be the hottest great-grandma. She instructs Sandra to get a full-body health scan and then have some sex for the other type of full-body scan, so she doesn’t die. Only Tamra would combine sex and death and grandmothers in a heart-to-heart. I’m not sure if that’s a compliment or not…
After the new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live tonight – along with Odd Mom Out comedienne Abby Elliott. Tamra dished on her co-stars – past and present – with Andy Cohen.
They kick things off with a game where Tamra weighs in on situations in the OC. On Brooks living with Vicki, she says “that’s a Vicki problem.” On Shannon Beador and David, she says she knew about the affair and does think Shannon was right to forgive him since they’ve been married for so long. On whether Meghan Edmonds is a good fit for the show, “she’s the best bitch on there.”
Professional moversJim and Meghan Edmonds have finally put down roots. Meghan will no longer have to live with the shadowy reminders of Jim’s previous marriages, perched on a sofa he chose with one of his exes because the former MLB player and his third wife just purchased their very own Newport Beach mansion.
After months of Meghan making it her job to peruse the MLS, she and Jim plonked down $2.78 million for a six-bedroom mcmansion in the Newport Heights neighborhood of Newport Beach. Jim and Meghan sold the home they were seen moving from on Real Housewives Of Orange County for $6.775 million, so Jimmy made quite a profit in his downsizing.
Reflecting on her 65th or so house relocation with hubby Jim Edmonds, Meghan shares, “Moving sucks! And watching this episode made me want to throw one of my empty boxes (from yet another move) at the television for minimizing the stress and overall terrible feelings that come with a move.” But, alas! Apparently Jimmy has seen the light about how hard poor wife #3 has it, what with her directing the packing and unpacking of his their property. “I know you hear me say that Jimmy doesn’t do any of the actual moving and that’s why he thinks it’s easy, well he didn’t up until we moved out of our four month rental. That was the first time he unpacked more than one box. And guess what, now he hates moving! Finally! You see him rummaging through a drawer, he wasn’t packing.”
ShannonBeador has chosen to expose the rawest details of her marriage this season, but in light of Vicki Gunvalson getting the heartbreaking news of her mother’s passing on last night’sReal Housewives of Orange County, Shannon is trying to express gratitude for what – and who – she has in life. In her blog this week, Shannon reflects on the petty drama she’s trying to squash with Meghan Edmonds, her sympathy for Vicki’s loss, and how she’s trying to move past David’s infidelity.
“This is a very difficult episode to watch,” begins Shannon. “I can’t imagine how incredibly hard it is for Vicki to relive. It is just a reminder to us all that life is precious and that we should be grateful for every moment we have on this earth with our family.” And these precious moments should not be spent on insignificant arguments with thirsty newbie housewives. “We shouldn’t focus on petty things—which brings to me to my phone call with Meghan in this episode,” writes Shannon.
