Shannon Beador

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.

If you were holding out hope that Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson were going to work out their issues, after reading her blog entry this week, you’ll see that ship has sailed. The Real Housewives of Orange County star declares that Vicki is dead to her and she is moving on to a new chapter in her friendship diary.

Tamra blogs about last night’s episode, “Peggy says it’s petty for Vicki and I to be arguing. MY question to her is WHO’S arguing? I’m just over Vicki’s crap and I don’t choose to have friends that stab me In the back all the time. I’m moving on — chapter closed!”

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!

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.

Shannon Beador

Shannon Beador wants us all to know, again, that she will never forgive Vicki Gunvalson! And after seeing Vicki mock her on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County, Shannon is “Done!” She’s “F–king DONE!” OK, just kidding – she’s actually still not done talking about Vicki, but she is opening a restaurant.

“One of my least favorite parts of the show is watching back what other people say about you,” shares Shannon, who failed Reality TV 101. “It can get quite frustrating and hurtful when people don’t accurately describe your intentions and say cruel things.”

Lydia & Peggy

Even though Lydia McLaughlin returned to Real Housewives of Orange County under the guise of being a self-proclaimed “friendship whisperer,” she’s come across as more of a shit stirrer than anything. Weeks after the episode with Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd’s confrontation at the Quiet Woman aired, Lydia is still defending herself and insisting that she didn’t intend to cause drama. Sure, Lydia. Likely story…

Aside from shamelessly promoting her magazine, her main story line this season is her supposed quest to reunite the friendships in the cast- even though she herself never kept in touch with Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge when she left the show and she isn’t close to anyone in the cast. It all seems way out of bounds for her take on, but she is still really pushing this “friendship whisperer” nonsense.
