Last night the show celebrated its 100th episode with a 2-hour flashback/recap of some of the show's most iconic moments. Among the milestones was catching up with some of the memorable cast mates throughout the 8-season run and discussing current cast member's reflections to how the show has evolved.
Tamra Barney, you will be relieved to know, hasn't changed one single iota except her hair has gotten less frizzy and her boobs smaller. Thank God for small mercies… #sarcasm In her casting video Tamra is a grade-A bitch and says when producers told her they were deciding between her and one other woman for the spot she turned up the ruthlessness.
Celebrating 100 episodes of true craziness (and for being Housewives pioneers) all the old favorites from the seasons past of RHOC will return to talk shop, dish on behind-the-scenes details, and reveal top secret info we've all been dying to know. Such as, just how on earth did we get stuck with Slave Smiley?
We're finally getting even more details of Tamra Barney'sover-the-top wedding to Eddie Judge straight from the reality star's mouth. The nuptials, which will be featured in a three-part Bravo spin-off beginning September 2, had the bride wearing three different dresses and incorporated all four of her children. The Real Housewives of Orange County's resident loudmouth even had all of her co-stars on hand to celebrate with her.
Tamra tells Us Weekly, "Words can't even describe the weekend. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. It went by so fast!"
Describing her walk down the aisle with eldest son Ryan to get to her groom, she says, "Oh gosh … [Eddie's] so handsome and then he was in that tux. In the three and a half years I've known Eddie, I've never seen him cry. It was really wrenching to see him standing there with tears in his eyes. I thought, 'Oh my God, this guy really does love me!'"
The besties for a minute have recently been experiencing some friction in their relationship – particularly as Tamra reconnects with Vicki Gunvalson and tries to rehab her image as a reformed mean girl.
I have to hand it to Tamra, for a season and a half she has really been selling us on this whole 'Gretchen is my BFFL and I misjudged her all this time. I'm so happy we made amends' act. I almost believed her. Oh, who am I kidding – we were as likely to buy that as we were to buy a Gretchen Christine Plasticine Sack.
Now that the Tamretchen fractures are being featured on the show, Tamra is only too eager to reveal that yeah, Gretchen is kinda annoying. In her new blog she complains about Slave Slimey, Gretchen's 'ultimatums' and Lauri Peterson's ulterior motives concerning Tamra's true bestie Vicki Gunvalson!
Things begin with Heather Dubrow being ridiculous. Apparently Heather just cannot possibly attend Lydia's salsa party if AlexisBellino is there given that Alexis is like soooo fake and phony and faux and everything horrible. Lydia encourages Heather to try and make amends with Alexis and call her so they can put their differences aside. Lydia calls herself the "Friendship Whisperer." If this woman starts teaching classes and writing how-to books about training people to curb their aggression using treats I think I might explode.
After much twisting of the Chanel pearls ('cause costume jewelry is only acceptable if it's Chanel) Heather concedes she will be the bigger person and call Alexis. Lydia lets out a squee.
Real Housewives of Orange County star Lydia McLaughlin was a guest on Watch What Happens Live tonight, along with the always hilarious Kristen Johnston, who was promoting season 3 of her comedy "The Exes". Also in the clubhouse was Lydia's mom Judy, acting as bartender.
Andy opened by showing some adorable old video clips of Lydia as a young girl, doing news reporting and even a PSA she did for child abuse awareness. She has seriously always been this sweet and cute.
The first caller asked Lydia why she's such a Debbie Downer about her mom's marijuana use. "I don't think I'm a Debbie Downer and I think I have the right to my opinion. She's my mom and I love her."
Like, ZOMG! Gretchen Rossi is like a real live designer and to prove it the bikini she was rocking while she tantrumed and sobbed in last week's Mexico last week has sold out!
The Real Housewife of Orange County star took to Facebook to share the amazing news and let us know that if we missed out on the opportunity to nab some Gretchen Christine Booty Sequined Butt Floss, there is more on the way! I wonder if I can nab a free one as a Reality Tea perk?
"Omg! Cannot believe the suit I'm wearing in this picture completely sold out nationally and at swimspot.com a few days after I wore it on #RHOC in Mexico! What a testament to how amazing my fans and customers are!," Gretchen wrote. "So glad you guys like Lisa's and my designs! Other styles still available in this material! @luxebylisavogel #gretchenchristinexluxe #styles4allbodytypes"
