After a tough start with Briana and Ryan getting married out of nowhere, Vicki getting upset that the family temporarily left Orange County for Oklahoma, and that random disagreement with Lydia McLaughlin’s mom, Vicki has grown to love her son-in-law and she seems to pretty pumped that he is back.
Vicki shared a photo of her packed up car on Instagram. “Got it all packed into two cars completely full of food and alcohol! Can’t wait to spend the weekend in the desert with 28 family and friends, some flying in from Chicago, and [Steve’s] family including 1 from Germany! #rhoc #rhocseason12#mervgriffinestate #family #desert #palmsprings #leftrightcenter #alcohol #itsgonnabehot #fishing #fourwheelers #woohoo” Look below to see the pics Vicki and son-in-law Ryan Culberson, who took the picture above with his drone, shared on Instagram.
Once again, I found myself being jealous of one of the Real Housewives kids having an over the top birthday party. First Tamra Judge’s daughter Ava had a unicorn themed party in a beer garden. Now, Lydia McLaughlin’s son is living it up at a movie themed party, complete with a red carpet and screening for his friends.
I would kill to have one of these parties to celebrate my birthday. Nevertheless, Lydia’s party this week didn’t really move the plot forward on Real Housewives of Orange County. Good for her though, this is the one week she isn’t stirring up involved in the drama.
Once again, this is another Real Housewives of Orange County season that isn’t look so good for Vicki Gunvalson. Obviously no one is over that whole cancer scam from last year and Shannon Beador is the one really leading the charge. Personally, I think the cast members and the fans would be able to forgive Vicki if she just took responsibility for her actions and stopped changing her story to play up the victim persona.
Everyone has been blinded by love and I don’t think Vicki is an awful person, but her inconsistencies are way too much for Shannon and the rest of the cast. So, when the ladies say something that’s objectively offensive about Vicki, you know the OG of the OC will be ready to pounce so she can successfully defend herself (for once). It’s definitely a good way to get people to stop talking about Brooks Ayers– at least for a minute.
Vickitweeted yesterday, “God answered our prayers today. Briana/Ryan put an offer on a house today in OC and it was accepted. Everything is finally coming together.” Briana, Ryan, and their two boys have been living in Oklahoma due to Ryan’s military posting, a move that neither Vicki nor Briana seemed too thrilled with.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star had planned to spend time with Briana this summer as Briana prepared for her the birth of her second son, but baby had other plans! Vicki shared over the weekend that the baby was going to be early, so she had to rush off to be with her family. She wrote on Friday, “Just got to LAX to catch a 6am flight to OKC. Our new baby decided to come a early. Can’t get there quick enough! Pray for healthy baby and momma. 4thofJulybaby.”
Vicki announced that daughter Briana Culberson and her husband Ryan are expecting baby number two – and it's another boy! "So excited! Just found out baby #2 is a BOY!#troybigbrother, #bestfriends, #footballplayers," Vicki wrote on Instagram.
Poor Lydia McLaughlin was emotionally exhausted after taping her first Real Housewives of Orange County reunion. The new (and hopefully returning!) cast member took to her blog this week to express her frustration over the way things went down on last night's third and final installment.
Lydia starts off sharing that she was disappointed in the way Briana Culberson handled the topic of Ryan'streatment of her mom, Judy Stirling. As we all saw, Briana suddenly didn't want to discuss altercation (hello! that is what a reunion episode is!) and tried to shut down any talk of it because Ryan wasn't there. She feebly attempted to excuse his behavior and Lydia is aggravated, to say the least. "What happened between my mother and Ryan was unfortunate. However, I feel Vicki, Ryan, and Briana are trying to steer away from the facts. Ryan shouldn't have yelled at my mother. End of story. He should apologize for his actions. She wasn't drinking red wine, but if she had been, don't you think he would have mentioned that while he was verbally assaulting her!?"
