Shannon Beador begins this week’s blog with a similar sentiment she seems to express weekly: discomfort. But this time the discomfort is not from watching her marriage crumble on TV; it’s from dealing with the sketchy Brooks Ayers situation the Real Housewives of Orange County has unfortunately made its central storyline this season. Shannon shares, “This episode is heart pounding and uncomfortable for me to watch. So much information keeps coming up and I don’t like the position I am in.”
Shannon claims she was taken aback by the lengths Meghan Edmonds will go to in order to “get to the bottom” of Brooks‘ story. She confesses, “Dinner with Heather [Dubrow] and Meghan was shocking. The speculation and conversations about Brooks’ illness are not stopping and the women continue to ask me why Brooks has not seen one of the world-renowned doctors I referred to him. I don’t have the answer to that question. It is quite clear that Meghan wants to get to the bottom of things. I would never pick up a phone and pretend that I was sick to get information. She will clearly do whatever it takes to try and gather information.”
Confusing times on Real Housewives Of Orange County!Brooks makes me suspicious, yet Meghan Edmonds makes me equally suspicious. Whose motive is weirder?! I love a mystery – Veronica Mars is my favorite show, but Meghan makes amateur private investigators everywhere look psycho.
Brooks Ayers is a professional liar, smooth as snake oil and slathering it on Vicki Gunvalson as the serum of youth. Meghan is a two-bit phony, but she has two luxuries: Time and Vendetta (and internet access). This will not end well.
Things begin with Meghan meeting Heather Dubrow and Shannon for dinner. Everyone gets along now because Shannon saw the light that Meghan is always right (AKA, get along well enough to talk ish about Vicki).
They start off talking about different dramatic storylines this season on RHOC, so Andy asks Ramona her thoughts on several of the situations. Andy asks Ramona what she thinks of the OC ladies not believing that Brooks Ayers has cancer. “If he’s lying about, it’s a pretty emotionally ill thing and should call him out on it because it means he has problems. And if he is really ill, just leave him alone.”
Brooks Ayers, the Housewife that never was (but oh, he might as well be!) continues to find himself the main focus as the ladies attempt to decipher: Does her or Doesn’t he? Have cancer, that is! Meghan King Edmonds has appointed herself the cancer crusader (can she get a superhero cape to go with that?) and is determined to fight for justice by exposing Brooks as lying about cancer. Or at the very least withholding the facts.
Tamra Judge hasn’t written her musings down in a while because she says, “to be honest I hate writing my blogs. It just doesn’t come easy to me.” But she’s back this week to rehash the main themes of this week’s Real Housewives of Orange County, which basically were (for Tamra): Baptisms, Enabling of Man-Children, and Sticking by Vicki No Matter What. Although Tamra does question the level of Vicki Gunvalson’s epic freak out on daughter Briana Culberson, so it’s not all blind allegiance in the end, perhaps.
Plugging her “sex tape” right out of the gate Tamra claims, “we thought about doing an intro video that would get everyone’s attention. I think we did just that with our fake sex tape, so far over 10 million people have viewed it on YouTube. We get a lot of viewers from around the world asking for fitness tips. We are working on providing free videos on fitness & nutrition. So please subscribe for updated videos.” Well, make that 10 million and one, cuz I just clicked on that YouTube link, and spoiler alert: it’s the same exact clip we watched on RHOC! A sucker is born everyday I guess. And today, that sucker is me. #lowpoint
Can we stop talking about cancer? Obviously it’s terrible, but does an entire season of Real Housewives really need to be devoted to questioning it, discussing it, and arguing over who is the expert on it. Especially when ME-ME-ME-Meghan, the person most vociferously insisting she’s the so-called expert can’t even figure out how to make MINUTE RICE!! (This same person then brags that a meal containing Minute Rice is healthy. Oh honey… have you learned nothing from Vicki: cancer loves processed food!).
Last week Tamra did an interview accusing Simon of alienating Sidney and hindering their relationship; Simon fought back accusing Tamra of being a neglectful mother whose outrageous antics on Real Housewives Of Orange County are embarrassing to her teenage daughter.
In a new report, Simon is accused of publicly leaking court documents and planting a bevy of lies to besmirch Tamra’s unimpeachable reputation! “Shame on my ex for giving radar an half assed statement to a sealed case! I hope he’s proud #POS,” the reality star and born again Christian tweeted. Tamra also accused Simon of bullying her in another tweet and called his behavior “sick.”
Simon Barney is done keeping silent about his acrimonious custody battle with Tamra Judge! Unfortunately, in the middle of it is Tamra and Simon’s 16-year-old daughter Sidney. After Tamra accused Simon of controlling Sidney in an interview last week, Simon is fighting back by defending his behavior and labeling Tamra as an “abusive” mother!
“I have always tried to keep quiet and take the high road. Unfortunately the latest barrage of negative press has warranted some kind of statement,” Simon declared. “My statement is to set the record straight with facts, truths, not fabrications and accusations.”
Last week the Real Housewives Of Orange County star made several scathing accusations against Simon, including that Sidney was a victim of ‘parental alienation’ because of Simon preventing Sidney from having a relationship with Tamra. Tamra claimed a therapist working with her and Sidney backed her claim and Tamra was found innocent of “alienating behaviors.”
