Shannon Beador

Who would have ever thought that Kelly Dodd would be getting along with all of her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars except for Meghan Edmonds? Not only was last year a controversial first season for Kelly, but Meghan was the “friend” who brought her into the cast.

At this point the two of them are constantly coming at each other and scrutinizing every word that comes out of the other person’s mouth.

Last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County was a little rough for Shannon Beador. She took to her Bravo blog to explain her side of the craziness that went down with her co-stars. Shannon makes it quite clear that she will never get over Vicki Gunvalson‘s involvement with “a cancer scam” and has no warm feelings toward Lydia McLaughlin, either.

Shannon begins, “For the record, I would like to be clear, I do not try to control Tamra or tell her what to do. That is ridiculous.” Shannon claims she has told Tamra many times that she will support her no matter what she decides about her friendship with Vicki but that Tamra does NOT want to be suckered back into that toxic situation.

Last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County was like a community theater acting troupe doing a play about Real Housewives. The costumes were bad, the over-acting was worse, and no one was winning any Emmys, but damn if Tamra Judge wasn’t trying her hardest!

Can we just stop doing this whole Tamra and Vicki Gunvalson will be friends again thing? RHOC is trying so desperately to insist they both care, with all the fake tears and carrying on and hullabaloo over two women so emotionally divorced from each other they can’t even get angry convincingly. David Beador Lydia McLaughlin crawling on the stairs begging Shannon Beador to just. stop? Yep, that is my reaction to yet another episode of will they? Or won’t they? Can Tamicki ever be put back together again?

Meghan & Lydia

This story line with Meghan Edmonds and Kelly Dodd arguing over a text message conversation that happened months before  this Real Housewives of Orange County season started filming is dragging out for way too long. Unfortunately, there really isn’t much else happening at this point. Fortunately, the preview for the rest of the season looks pretty promising.

The fans have to wait and see how the rest of the episodes play out. While everyone is really waiting for Vicki Gunvalson to go at it with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador, we are stuck with this random argument with Meghan and Kelly.

Shannon wonders about Peggy's cancer

Whether you love Shannon Beador or not, everyone has to admit that she is really doing the most to earn that orange. She really puts herself out there on Real Housewives of Orange County. She hasn’t been shy about her marital problems or her forty pound weight gain this season.

Instead of solely being applauded for her openness about her body, Shannon actually took a lot of heat for attributing the gain to stress caused by her nemesis Vicki Gunvalson. After apologizing for that comment a million times over, Shannon will (most likely) have to address it again when she films the RHOC reunion episodes. She will be ready for it though. She has lost some weight and she plans to lose even more before she reunites with the rest of the cast for the reunion.

Lydia

Someone had to call Meghan Edmonds out on her hypocrisy and messiness on The Real Housewives Of Orange County. And this week, little rainbows-and-butterflies Lydia McLaughlin stepped right up to the plate! On their hike together, Lydia pointed out that Meghan is no innocent victim when it comes to her drama with Kelly Dodd – but Meghan sure doesn’t see it that way.

Lydia explains why she felt the need to speak up: “I want to start off by saying I really like Meghan. I enjoy her friendship and she is always sweet to me. When we went on the hike, I felt like she was going on and on about Kelly, yet she wasn’t taking any responsibility for her part. Meghan was the one that accused Kelly of an affair FIRST. Then, once they had made up, months later, Meghan goes and tells Vicki [Gunvalson] about the fight. Kelly definitely attacked Meghan, but I didn’t feel comfortable walking with Meghan without saying that she had a part in it as well.”

Casting Peggy Sulahian for Real Housewives of Orange County seems like the most random choice. She didn’t know any of the women before joining the show and she doesn’t seem to have any grasp on what is going on between the women. It doesn’t make a lot of sense for her to be on this show.

Plus her “story line” for the last episode was going to the post office with her husband Diko Sulahian to mail an envelope for their daughter’s college applications. Why couldn’t she just put the envelope in her own mailbox at home? Isn’t her daughter applying online anyway? Is this really the best story line she could come up with?
