This was a brutal season for Shannon Beador, but she seems to be taking it all in stride and owning her shit. She announced that she and David Beadorhave separated. She has admitted to projecting her feelings on the other women in the cast. She has apologized for blaming her weight gain on stress from Vicki Gunvalson.
Now she seems like she is ready for a fresh start and that new beginning might include a friendship with former enemy Kelly Dodd.
Did Peggy Sulahian save this Real Housewives of Orange County season by offending everyone (the cast members and the viewers) at the end of the Iceland trip? For the most part the fans can agree on two things: this season has been disappointing and Peggy needs to go. Nevertheless, she did make that last episode pretty exciting- even though she crossed boundaries more than once.
She said that Shannon Beador’shusband isn’t loyal to her and she called out Meghan Edmonds’mothering abilities when she talked about her baby crying. She even made Lydia McLaughlinlate for a dinner that she planned and intended to host. Peggy offended everyone and she was the one who left the trip.
After her strange video “footage” and behavior in Iceland, Peggy Sulahian is trying in vain to dig herself out of a pretty deep hole in her blog this week.
The Real Housewives Of Orange County newcomer still doesn’t seem to understand the basic tenets of the show she’s on though – namely, that (sometimes) you need to out-yell the women around you to make your point! Peggy can’t even seem to explain herself clearly, however. And it’s doing her no favors.
Kelly jokes, “When Peggy made her grand entrance in Lydia [McLaughlin’s] room before dinner, I couldn’t help but laugh. Her shirt says ‘WHATEVER’ but her face screams ‘HIGH MAINTENANCE.’ She lets Lydia know right off the bat that she’s cold, she’s starving, she’s tired…and Lydia, being the gracious host she is, scrambles to make sure Peggy is comfortable. It’s like watching Smithers and Mr. Burns on The Simpsons. And just like Monty Burns, Peggy is ready to release the hounds.”
Peggy Sulahian is just kind of just the worst, isn’t she? Maybe she’s a nice person, and she seemed OK at her Armenian anniversary party, but as soon as you take the Diko away from Peggy she turns into a judgmental, overbearing, clueless buzzkill intent to smother the fun out of any party with her nonsensical ramblings. Even a Viking send-off. I don’t want to be mean, but perhaps Bravo needs to issue ‘Funness’ qualifying exams.
There were men in fair isle sweaters serenading the ladies, then fighting over the amorphous blondes (Shannon Beador is convinced it’s her because Vikings “like a girl with a lil meat on her bones,” but would Shannon really touch whale blubber? I feel like it’s not very holistic…). But anyway, there were men doing all this for all of them, and in the middle of it all Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson were hugging and kissing like it was 2010, and Vicki even apologized to Shannon – more on that in a bit – then in walked Peggy, wearing a blood red caftan, and out for blood! She ruined the whole thing. Again.
This Real Housewives of Orange County season got blown out of the water by the Dallas Housewives which airs right after it on Monday nights. At this point, no one would be shocked if Bravo switched things up and Dallas was the lead-in show for Orange County instead. That’s how abysmal and boring this season is. Even so, the drama picked up in Iceland.
Plus Vicki Gunvalson was actually getting along with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador (for the most part) on the trip. Pigs must have been flying in Iceland. No one saw this one coming. Plus it gave all of us hope for the rest of this season and even next season. Don’t hold on to that thought though. Tamra is very adamant that the peace we witnessed in Iceland remained in Iceland.
