Remember the woman Tamra Judge frequently liked to call Jesus Jugs? You know, before Tamra found enlightenment and all that? Well, former Real Housewives of Orange County’sAlexis Bellino may not be holding an orange anymore, but she’s still making that Alexis Couture fashion line happen! And she’s giving away one dress from her line, along with a personal meet and greet, to one lucky fan all in the name of charity.
The meet and greet, awarded to one winner and up to four of his or her most patient friends, will be auctioned off via Charitybuzz. Donation bids will benefit Children’s Craniofacial Association (CCA), an organization that raises money to help children born with facial differences, sometimes referred to as disfigurements. CCA offers assistance and even retreats for families whose children must seek treatment or surgery for facial differences. Sounds like a wonderful cause, truly.
Tamra Judge is not ready to give up on rebuilding a relationship with her 16-year-old daughter Sydney – even if that means taking ex-husband Simon Barney back to court! This time Tamra is fighting to have Simon’s full custody of Sydney revoked claiming he is in contempt of court. I’d say he’s contemptuous alright!
The exes have been waging war against each other over custody after Simon filed court documents barring their three minor children from appearing on Real Housewives Of Orange County, plus accusing Tamra of abuse and neglect. Simon was seeking to revoke joint custody from Tamra. However, Simon was called out by a judge for exaggerating his claims, for which he had no proof, although the judge upheld the decision that the kids be kept off reality TV.
Well, Lizzie Rosvek wasn’t pregnant (at least on the Tahiti trip) after all. Considering the build up in last week’s Real Housewives of Orange County blog, it feels like a bit of a let down! But Lizzie has more to reflect on than taking a Vicki Gunvalson-supplied EPT test, commenting this week on her business, her feelings about Mo’orea so far, and her take on Meghan Edmonds’ statements about mothering her step children.
Lizzie updates us on Sun Kitten, her swimwear line first: “I’m gearing up for a big week with Sun Kitten. We are shooting the 2016 campaign tomorrow in Newport Beach. I’m very excited about the new collection and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.” But let’s move on to Tahiti, shall we? Thankfully, Lizzie shares, “I finally received my luggage and it felt so good to put fresh clothes on after two days.”
“I have watched this episode a few times and laughed so hard all weekend!” begins Shannon. “I have to say that our second day in Mo’orea was one of the most fun ‘girl days’ I have ever had!!!” Although things didn’t start off so rosy, given that Shannon began the trip sick, and broke her nebulizer. “My nebulizer blew up and I had to rent a Tahitian one that I couldn’t figure out how to use! I had sinus surgery years ago and now the drainage goes to my lungs — I cough every day and it is a nightmare! I hate using a nebulizer!!!”
The ladies of the Real Housewives of Orange County might not know about Girl Code, but they certainly have a lot to say about Mom Code, or in Meghan Edmonds’ case, Stepmom Code. On this week’s episode, Meghan was taken to task by Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge regarding her comments that she wished she was her step kids’ “real mom.” Here to defend her comments, and her HashtagCoolStepmom street cred, is Meghan’s blog.
Meghan begins by assuring us that she and hubby Jim Edmonds do indeed spend time together, also reflecting on the touching funeral services that she recently attended for the late LeAnn Edmonds, Jim’s first ex-wife. “As I write this I am sitting on a plane to visit Idaho for the first time,” shares Meghan. “A highly anticipated vacation for my husband and me especially after yesterday when we watched LeAnn’s family lay her to rest. It was a beautiful ceremony that celebrated her life in the way she would have wanted, but it was terrible to watch my stepdaughters hurt so deeply. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.”
Shannon Beador is trying to off-load her toxin-free OC mansion. After initially listing it for $12.99 million she has dropped the price by $1.1 million!
The Real Housewives Of Orange County star has been trying to sell the 13,306-square-foot Crystal Cove home for years. Shannon and husband David completed construction on the home in 2012, but by 2013 listed it on the market for $15.99 million.
Rumor has it when RHOC came a’knockin’ they persuaded Shannon to take the house off the market because Heather Dubrow‘s storyline was already about moving and building a new home. Plus Shannon will be Heather’s new neighbor once the Dubrow’s Crystal Cove mansion is competed.
While one former Housewife is downsizing, another is overtaking the OC with her spread of rare marble. Yes, it’s Jeana Keough vs. Heather Dubrow luxury mansion-off!
Jeana, one of the original Real Housewives Of Orange County stars, resided in the exclusive gated community of Coto de Caza, which once dominated the show. Jeana has faithfully remained Vicki Gunvalson‘s next door neighbor, but recently she revealed that she’s renting out the mansion that was once so prominently a part of RHOC! “I’ve decided to lease the house and see where this new adventure takes me!” the excited former reality star gushes.
“I’ve learned to let go. I’m definitely a control freak, but this year I’ve gotten much better with not needing to be in control of every situation,” explains Heather. “I got to a place where I realized, you can’t do everything perfectly – you have to let go a little bit. I’m much more ‘me’ on the show this year because I feel much more relaxed.”
