Shannon Beador

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?

Tamra Judge

It is getting out of hand on Real Housewives of Orange County. Long gone are the days where the biggest problems are Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge ditching the rest of the cast to go to club in Mexico and Vicki peeing the bed. Now it’s far from those lighthearted issues.

Vicki is very adamant about the rumors that Tamra’s husband Eddie Judge is “secretly gay” and that Shannon Beador’s husband David Beador “beats her.” No one is willing to speak to each other, let alone film together. There are some strong feelings of animosity between these women and Tamra is not shy sharing her opinion after the Eddie bashing that went down at Vicki‘s birthday party.

Shannon Beador is weighing in on last night’s birthday celebrations overload on The Real Housewives of Orange County. She shares her thoughts on Vicki Gunvalson‘s birthday party, her own birthday festivities and the awful rumors about Eddie Judge shared during Vicki’s bash.

Starting off with her own birthday situation, Shannon says we need to back off if we think she needs to shut up already with her whining to David about Vicki’s allegations. “It is difficult to watch my birthday conversation with David. For all of you that are going to tell me to just keep my mouth shut and stop complaining, let me stop you there. I haven’t been bringing up this subject over and over. I don’t talk about it every minute. But on this one year anniversary of the vow renewal, you are actually seeing me talk about things from my heart. I had no intention of going into this subject, but because of the day, it just happened. Yes, I was stressed about the whole Vicki allegation situation because I didn’t want my family to get hurt. We have been through enough. But that was six months ago and I am having the hardest time realizing that David has been distancing himself from me.”
