The only (super small) bright side was that the videos actually got to see a compassionate side to Jim’s personality – especially after he has been highly criticized for what comes off like a lack of support during Meghan’s pregnancy journey. It seemed pretty obvious to me that Meghan and Jim were happy to have a baby on the way and that they were just understandably upset that they lost one, but apparently a lot of people have come at her for being “ungrateful” that she has a healthy baby on the way.
How does Vicki “know” all of this? She heard gossip around town and she definitely believes it. Wow. Those are some cold hard facts, Vicki. I get that she hates Shannon because Shannon refuses to be friends with her, but does she not get that talking about the Beador family on a TV show hurts Shannon’s three children more than anyone. Classy move, Vic. Well, obviously that scene did not sit too well with Shannon.
We’re moving on, we’re moving backwards, and we’re moving into straight crazy territory on Real Housewives Of Orange County. Who isn’t on the edge of their seat after that preview for the rest of the season? In a war between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge, it was always a toss-up, but then Tamra found Jesus through jumping jacks and Vicki got ‘duped’ by her own desperation, so now I don’t know… It’s probably still a toss-up!
Apparently Bravo is using Tamra as some sort of Kelly Dodd reflecting pool. Like, ‘Oh remember way back when when Tamra was an irascible ‘naked wasted getting’ bitch throwing wine in her friend’s faces? But now that she’s found the ever-supportive Eddie, she’s calm and centered.’ Like Kelly could be that too if she divorced Michael. I don’t know. Crazy is as crazy does, and crazy takes advice from Tamra and Vicki!
Kelly and Michael continue to have a rocky marriage since separating. They try and work through their issues, but end up arguing instead. Meghan King Edmonds gets her first ultrasound since becoming pregnant to determine if she is carrying twins, and Jim even manages to accompany her to the doctor.
Real Housewives of Orange County got ugly and personal on the last epside. Usually the women just stick to arguing with each other and that seems like fair game since they all get paid to socialize on reality television.
But this week, Shannon Beador’s mother-in-law decided to stir up some family drama and ruin her granddaughters’ concert. It was so tasteless and ultimately it just hurt the kids. This was way different than the Housewife-on-Housewife fights that we usually witness. It was a totally different ball game.
I felt so awkward watching the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. As much as I could tell that Shannon Beador’s mother-in-law loves her grand kids, it was definitely in poor taste for her to shit talk Shannon to Kelly Dodd and Tamra Judge – both of whom she had just met that day. It made an already tense situation even worse for the family. Also, it was bad timing for Kelly, who just finally found herself on good terms with Shannon.
It is obvious that Kelly tried hard to calm down the situation and to comfort the mother-in-law, assuring her that Shannon has no animosity, but the woman was totally out of control. She caused a lot of unnecessary drama and put Kelly in an awkward spot in her already-fragile friendship with Shannon.
