“I sincerely cannot believe that Slade pulled this off last night,” Gretchen wrote on Instagram. “I mean to say I had NO idea is an understatement! So many of my sweet friends came to surprise and celebrate me! I’m still on cloud nine!”
“Now @sladesmiley I’m going to kill you because no one has ever been able to keep me out of the loop like that before and surprise me that well! Oh and also because I put my hair in a side braid cause I was tired from my photoshoot and did not want to restyle my hair. Not cute buddy. And you had my mom trick me too! Best Birthday in a long time!!” See photos from Gretchen‘s party below.
After Teresa was sentenced and all the bigwigs sat around wondering what to do now, I was like, “Um, FIRE HER?!?” I mean, seriously! I was not shocked, however, to learn that a pink slip wasn’t on the list of options.
Simon has been called out by court psychologists for some of his statements. And he alleges that their eldest daughter does not want a relationship with Tamra. There has been drama in and out of the courtroom between the bitter exes. Simon was seeking sole physical custody, allowing for visitation with Tamra, and for Tamra to pay his attorney fees in the case. Yesterday they met back in court where it was good news for Tamra and their children.
The presiding judge dismissed Simon’s case against Tamra for custody of their two younger children, Spencer and Sophia, citing a lack of evidence to substantiate his claims!
Reality star Brooks Ayers, infamous for being the nefarious boyfriend of Vicki Gunvalson – and the subject of many a feud – just revealed that he has progressive stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
“My reality is that I have, once again, been diagnosed with a form of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma specifically diffuse large B cell lymphoma,” the Real Housewives Of Orange County star shared. Brooks was initially diagnosed in the fall of 2013. Interestingly this was never included in RHOC as a storyline – or even mentioned on the show.
The Golden Foodie Awards recognizes excellence in the local food scene and celebrates independent restaurants and chefs. Shannon presented alongside husband David Beador, you know, now that everything’s good there and they’re sleeping in the same bed. And Heather was there because she’s sort of an expert on food given that she was one time opening a restaurant.
Photos of the ladies not killing each other over cocktails and appetizers are below!
On a related note, Amy recently shared her favorite Real Housewives moment, the RHOC trip to British Columbia. “All of the women were dressed head-to-toe in their best winter apparel and strapped into their downhill skis, ready to hit the slopes when Lauri decided to accuse Vicki of having sex with multiple partners,” recalled Amy. “This public display of crazy was a gift from the heavens.”
Anyway, Gretchen has been trying to have Slade Smiley‘s babies for a while now and unfortunately things just aren’t working out naturally so the couple is turning to fertility treatments. Sharing that the decision to consider fertility was a painful one, Gretchen admits that she had “mourn the loss of making a baby the natural way” before she accepted the situation.
Question: Didn’t El Slave-o have a vasectomy a while back?
Yesterday Tamra went to court with ex-husband Simon Barney to continue working on their custody dispute – and that wasn’t the only dispute Tamra dealt with that day. She reportedly got into a screaming argument with Simon’s girlfriend Catushia Ienni! The exes are in court because Simon accused Tamra of neglect and is attempting to get full custody of their three minor children, Sydney, Spencer, and Sophia.
Yesterday, Tamra, armed with her attorney and child psychologist Renee Hulse, set out to prove otherwise as both sides’ attorneys met with the judge in chambers. Unfortunately most of the drama happened outside of the courtroom!
