Shannon at Lydia's Magazine Launch

I’m pretty sure that Shannon Beador has said that she’s “done” with Vicki Gunvalson and wants nothing to do with her at least once during every Real Housewives of Orange County episode this season. On one hand, that’s completely understandable given all the shit that’s gone down between them. On the other hand, she could leave the show if she really wants to avoid Vicki.

Fortunately for Shannon, this last episode was way better for her than the first few from this season. Throwing a plate full of food at a restaurant and getting into a screaming match at a toddler’s birthday party were not the best looks for her, so I don’t blame her for chilling out a little bit after all that went down.

Peggy Grabs Meghan's Lips

Even though it was reported everywhere that Meghan Edmonds would not be returning to Real Housewives of Orange County this season, she is back. She didn’t interact with any other cast members for the first three episodes, but she is back and even she thinks this season is boring.

And that is something most of us can agree on. Minus Shannon Beador’s iconic plate toss, this season has been a total snooze. Hopefully it picks up.

Kelly Dodd

Even though Kelly Dodd joined Real Housewives of Orange County as a friend of Meghan Edmonds, that friendship seems to be on the rocks these days. Meghan asked Kelly if she had a boyfriend on the side and Kelly fired back by saying that Meghan’s husband Jim Edmonds is having an affair.

Other than that, not much has happened between these two, but it’s clear shit is about to go down since they are constantly ripping on each other on social media and in interviews.

Lydia McLaughlin gets a car for her birthday

Oh, Lydia McLaughlin had so much good happen on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County – but the number one important event wasn’t Doug agreeing to a consolation for his ball removal, but that Lydia convinced Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge to meet and talk. Looks like the U.N. should be contacting Bravo to find their newest delegate. But maybe Lydia needs a lesson in the diplomacy of not calling people crazy first.

First up, since Lydia loves Doug’s balls, she wants us to know that she doesn’t actually want to get them cut off – she just wants them to stop producing viable sperm. Even though Doug is the “leader of our family,” baby number four is not on Lydia’s radar! “I had called and made Doug his consultation for his vasectomy because I knew he never would.” 

Shannon at Lydia's Magazine Launch

I made sure to wear my eclipse safety glasses while staring at the California sun, so I wouldn’t damage my eyes and miss seeing the drama on last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County. It’s a good thing too, because Kelly Dodd was wearing scrunchies on her wrists!

Last night was certainly a Me! Me! Me! episode – aren’t they all? – but this one was especially bad! It started with Vicki Gunvlason announcing that Briana’s uterus and Mike’s sperm belong to her! Cause Coto Insurance needs more worker bees to take over the family hive.

Aka, Vicki needs more grandchildren. NOW! NOW! NOW! Her sage advice to Mike is “date to mate,” as in he should only be sleeping with women he plans to reproduce with. Not before they sign a baby-nup, right?! I have a feeling Mike has listened to “Gold Digger” many-a-times and ain’t gonna get stuck with no 18 years. Either that or no woman wants to get stuck with Vicki for the next 18 years!

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA - JULY 10: Vicki Gunvalson visits

In her latest blog entry, Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson is not holding back when it comes to sharing her side of things with Tamra Judge. Vicki accuses her former bestie of being calculated and vicious, among other things. She also wants to see some compassion and forgiveness coming from Tamra and Shannon Beador.

Vicki starts off on a positive note by sharing what a “calm balance” her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, brings to her life and how much she loves being able to help Briana with the boys when she has to work a long shift. She then dives into the drama of this week’s episode. “I’m glad that Meghan invited me to the Sip-N-See to see Aspen and to put aside our differences from the past.” She adds, “I don’t necessarily agree with everything she did, but now that time has gone by I can reflect on what I did wrong as well.”

Meghan, Tamra, Shannon talk about Vicki

The party Meghan Edmonds had for her newborn baby during the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was beyond awkward. Sure, it was a beautiful event, but meeting baby Aspen was eclipsed by all the drama between the cast since this was the first time all season that they were all in the same room.

Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge are still doing what they can to ignore Vicki Gunvalson, even though they are all on the same reality TV show together. Peggy Sulahian is still being super rude and making zero sense. It was a relatively calm episode in comparison to others this season, but there was still a lot going on.

Peggy is shocked

At this point in the season, Peggy Sulahian doesn’t have much going on in Real Housewives of Orange County. She’s not close with any of these women and her main story line is still abundantly unclear. Hopefully she brings it because at this point  the insensitive jokes are just falling flat and pinching Meghan Edmonds’ lips was far from iconic. Give me a table flip or throw a dish.

Even though Peggy is picking at (and pinching) Meghan in her quest to befriend the OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson, at this point she is pretty much dispensable even though she’s the topic of some horrible rumors outside of the show.
