Lydia McLaughlin

Unfortunately, Lydia McLaughlin is back on Real Housewives of Orange County this season. Last time she pretty much had no story line other than yelling at Slade Smiley after he told her to eat  burger and relying on her hilarious mom to entertain the viewers.

This time around, Lydia is all about the pot stirring and the self-promoting. She is either low key stirring up drama or promoting her magazine.

Peggy is shocked

So far, we don’t really know too much about the new girl Peggy Sulahian on Real Housewives of Orange County, but that’s not really her fault. Her second episode had her caught in the crossfires while Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd came to blows at a restaurant.

Nevertheless, I really appreciated Peggy trying to lighten the mood by making comments about the food and innocently trying to eat. I could not help laughing, but no one in the scene with her seemed to be paying attention to her at all.

Kelly & Shannon argue in the bathroom

Everyone is talking about the fight between Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd at The Quiet Woman during the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, but very few people are calling out Lydia McLaughlin for being the one responsible for Kelly’s “surprise” appearance.

Lydia is the one who invited Kelly to show up. She also seemed so shocked when Kelly arrived and claimed to be embarrassed by the incident as if she didn’t know what show she was on. Now, Lydia is standing up for herself after a pretty questionable episode.

Heather Dubrow Holds Orange

Manners, decorum, propriety… oh my! After 5 seasons of educating us on how to behave and why, Heather Dubrow has entered Housewives Protection Program, changed her locks, and left Real Housewives Of Orange County

Now it’s time to give an official farewell to Bravo’s First Lady of Perfectly Chilled Champs. After years of Heather pontificating about the right way to do wrong, and the wrong way to do wrong, and the wrong way to do everything in between, it only seems appropriate to memorialize Heather The Housewife with an affirmational retrospective.

In all honesty, Shannon Beador must have felt uncomfortable watching the last of Real Housewives of Orange County episode. I on the other hand was living for Shannon’s freak out against Kelly Dodd…. well, for the most part.

Some moments were genuinely cringe worthy and some of the jabs went too far, but that plate throw was absolutely everything. Maybe there’s something wrong with me for being so entertained, but whatever. At least I’m being honest.

At this point, Tamra Judge seems like a different person after her newfound Christianity. Instead of being the instigator, she is really trying when it comes to this peacemaker role – minus hating on eternal frienemy Vicki Gunvalson whenever possible, but that’s basically a rite of passage on Real Housewives of Orange County.

Still, she was calm, cool, and collected during that instantly infamous dinner at The Quiet Woman when Shannon Beador threw a plate (full of food, mind you), and she was even polite and cordial toward Kelly Dodd (who she cannot stand).

For the most part, Vicki Gunvalson stayed out of the drama during the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. She wasn’t involved in anything that went down at the restaurant, The Quiet Woman, but her name was in everyone’s mouths, as per usual.

For once, Vicki doesn’t have to defend herself since she wasn’t involved in the actual controversy this time, but she did so anyway.

It’s so crazy to think that the viewers watched Briana Culberson getting ready for prom when Real Housewives of Orange County first started and now she’s giving on-camera interviews and avoiding Tamra Judge at social events. She is basically a Real Housewife herself, but that’s not enough for her mom Vicki Gunvalson. The OG of the OC wants her daughter to join the cast- officially!

It is so annoying when people join the cast who have no genuine ties to the ladies. The conversation, drama, and the relationships in general just seem way too contrived. Adding someone’s daughter would definitely emphasis the “real” in Real Housewives. I mean I would definitely take Briana over a few of the current cast members that we are stuck with this season.
