In all honesty, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judgeowe us (the loyal fans) big time after the worst Real Housewives of Orange Countyseason we’ve ever been subjected to watching. Tamra refused to speak with Vicki for most of the season. Vicki refused to own up to spreading rumors about Tamra’s husband’s sexuality and inviting Tamra’s enemies to her on-camera birthday party. Of course, there are other cast members who didn’t pull their weight as well, but as the two people who have been on the show the longest, the fans were expecting more from Vicki and Tamra.
They gave us hope when they finally made up during the last Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, and it looks like that truce has turned into a genuine revival of their friendship.
A lot of the reality stars that you love (and love to hate- or at least love to make fun of) were very active on Instagram this week, but don’t worry about refreshing your feed. We have the most interesting photos from the past few days in this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
When a couple divorces, it is expected for them to go through child custody negotiations, but what about friendship custody negotiations? Obviously that’s not a legal matter, but sometimes it can be tough to pick sides when two friends break up. Apparently Kelly Dodd and Michael Dodd are sharing custody of Vicki Gunvalsonin the wake of their split.
Based on watching Real Housewives of Orange County, I had no idea that Vicki and Michael had any sort of relationship, but it turns out that Vicki’s man Steve Lodge and Michael have a strong bond. Again, this is something I never picked up on, but now Vicki and Steve are hanging with Michael sans Kelly and they found him a new love interest.
Thanks to Valentine’s Day, there were a lot of reality TV stars posting on social media this week. From the couples photos, to the proud single ladies, to the mother/daughter valentines, there were a lot of sweet photos to choose from for this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
When most Housewives leave the show, it’s usually followed by some made up stories about how they left of their own accord and that they are moving on to bigger opportunities- something that no one believes. That does not seem to be the case with Meghan Edmondsafter her recent departure from Real Housewives of Orange County. The mother of one is pregnant with twin boys, moving on with her life away from the reality TV cameras, and focusing on her family.
Meghan revealed that her family broke ground to build their new home. Spoiler alert: it’s not in Orange County, California, so the likelihood of a Meghan guest appearance next season is not likely. And in all honesty, it really seems like she doesn’t care- unlike the two other womenwho are trying to spin the story who will not be returning next year.
Considering that the demise of his marriage played out during the last few Real Housewives of Orange County seasons, it’s not too surprising that David Beador will not be on the show next season. The fans heard all about his affair, watched him renew his vows with Shannon Beador, and eat potato chips in front of her while she was on a diet before she confirmed the end of their marriage during the reunion taping.
It seems like a given that David would be off the show now that he and Shannon aren’t together, but thanks to Housewives ex-husbands like Peter Thomasand Frank Catania, who are very present on their exes’ shows, this is something that needs to be clarified. Even so, David did seem uncomfortable in front of the camera, so it isn’t at-all shocking that he’s done with the show. Plus he has a new girlfriend these days.
