Heather Dubrow is officially part of the Bravo Home Shopping Network. Now that she is the proud owner of a new sparking wine, Collette, she’s no longer hawking her sit-coma guest acting career.
Reflecting on the Collette launch party weekend in Napa, which featured plenty of drama amid her Real Housewives Of Orange County co-stars, Heather explains she did everything possible to make sure everyone had great time, but alas, when Housewives and alcohol mix there’s only so far good hostessing and “trouble shooting” can go! However, she’s choosing to focus on the positives and her own impeccable success as a great hostess.
“This week you don’t see much of me other than packing for my trip to Florida,” says Vicki. “Every year my FMO holds an awards banquet based on the previous year’s production and I was proud to be acknowledged as one of the top producers in the Insurance & Financial Services industry. After my conference was done, I flew Briana and Ryan and their two boys from Oklahoma to Disneyworld and we spent another five days together. I just love being with my grandkids, Briana, and Ryan so there was no place I’d rather be…even Napa with the ladies.”
“What do you think of my blog post? Spot on or way off?” tweeted Meghan King Edmonds yesterday. The new girl in town has already begun stirring up trouble on the Real Housewives of Orange County. Although she doesn’t see it that way! In her blog, Meghan explains (and explains…and explains) why she was “floored” by Shannon Beador’s reaction to her in this week’s trip to Napa. Meghan also reiterates her mad love for Tamra Judge, and confesses that watching Shannon and David’s marriage issues play out on TV makes her “squirm.”
After praising Wheels Up, the private jet company that flew the ladies out to Heather Dubrow’s Collette party in Napa (hubby Jim is an investor), Meghan gushes about the janky homemade craft projects she foisted upon the women. “It’s true, I really do love to put my own personal touch on parties and special occasions so it will come as no surprise to those who know me that I hand-painted wine glasses. Hayley and her mom, LeAnn, helped me paint and it was so funny because we couldn’t really figure out what we were doing and made several duds before perfecting the process!” Aww, did Jimmy take Meghan to “Color Me Mine” for a playdate?
Shannon Beador has placed her marriage under a microscope this season of the Real Housewives of Orange County, and in her blog this week, she confesses she’s not too happy with the response she’s been getting to this grand experiment. In fact, she takes a few paragraphs to defend her behavior – and her choice to air her dirty laundry on TV – before launching into her take on this week’s episode.
“I am going to have to start before the episode even began. I noticed the title was ‘Whine Country’. Really?” Shannon begins, “I want to be very clear. I am not happy or excited about talking about my husband’s infidelity or the painful year plus that my family and I went through. But I happen to be on a reality show, I am honest, and we thought that sharing our story may help other couples in a similar situation.”
Real Housewives Of Orange County is a world unlike any other. It is a world in which one hires a premiere cake creator to design a cake shaped like a bottle of champagne. Then one reserves a seat on a private jet to fly said cake to the launch of their said champagne. Then, come to find out, the cake is actually fake – as in not really a cake, but a Styrofoam mold that resembles a cake, and the champagne is not really champagne, but a bubbly wine. Why so much precaution over a fake cake? Styrofoam robustly withstands grubby, unskilled hands of kindergarten crafters like Meghan Edmonds, so certainly it doesn’t need a seatbelt on a private jet, or it’s own personal valet. That’s just one of the many things that ponders me from last night’s episode. There are many, many more…
Heather Dubrow is headed to Napa to launch her champagne, which is not actually champagne, because it is not produced in France, therefore it must be called “Methode Champenoise.” Basically it’s bubbly wine. And calling bubbly wine “methode champenoise” is like calling a car port a “porte-cochere.” You can put fondant on a Styrofoam mold, but it’s still Styrofoam mold! Heather – accept it: you made a designer wine cooler!
Tamra and Eddie hit up Mykonos first and then headed over to Santorini. They’ve had (sort bad) sushi, did some shopping and a whole lot of lounging around and relaxing, as well as still getting in their morning workouts. Tamra has been sharing daily pics on Instagram, including some AMAZING photos and videos of the views. And a whole lot of swimsuit pics, naturally. Take a look at their fun vacay below!
Vicki Gunvalson is standing by her man and slamming naysayers who accuse Brooks Ayers of faking cancer! Brooks may be broker than a joke, but he certainly isn’t depraved enough to fake terminal illness, people! #NoICantBelieveThisIsAStorylineEither
This season Brooks comes under fire from Vicki’s fellow Housewives – specifically newbie Meghan Edmonds – who accuse him of making the whole thing up! Even Vicki’s daughter Briana even begins to question Brooks’ diagnosis and confides in Tamra Barney that she believes he may not really be sick!
