Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County reality was a hard-knocks life. Meghan Edmonds cried because being a grownup is really, really, really difficult and she just needs Jimmy to wipe her tears and tell her it will be OK. Unfortunately she can’t find the box of tissues in the moving boxes and she’s pretty sure the movers put them in with her trashcan right next to her self-awareness.
Shannon Beador is on a quest to lose weight; her heavy heart is weighing her down. Despite being 50 she’s never, ever worked out! Shannon visits some trainer/spiritualist who makes her pull up her shirt and then squeezes her chi center, (which if you say that out like sounds like a delicious crispy snack similar to Cheetos!). Shannon isn’t sure what’s making the scale rise and rise (mixing nine lemons with vodka?!) but the likely culprit is emotional baggage.
Unfortunately, it seems Tamra Judge‘s eldest son Ryan Vieth will never get his act together. Recent police reports reveal that the new father was arrested last month after a drunken domestic dispute with his fiancé Sarah Rodriguez!
The discomfort of watching Shannonand David Beador’smarriage crumble on camera during the Real Housewives of Orange Country is off the charts this season (or maybe that’s just me?). This week, Shannon reflects on how tough it is to watch “every single negative moment” she has with David, but reassures viewers that there are good times ahead. She also claims that David is really trying to make their marriage work. Well, I don’t know if the viewers need to be reassured of anything at this point, but let’s dig in to her blog nonetheless!
“What an episode,” begins Shannon. “Such joy and such sorrow all at the same time.” Happy that Tamra Judge visited Vicki Gunvalson before she traveled to her mother’s funeral, Shannon also touches on the “unique relationship” that her own daughter, Stella, has with “Aunt Vicki.” She shares that her girls “of course heard everything that had happened when Vicki was at the bunco party and Stella took my phone and wrote Vicki the sweetest, heartfelt text the next day.”
Tamra is preparing to go to Northern California with her mom to witness her granddaughter’s birth. Sarah, Ryan’s wife, has a scheduled c-section and Tamra is bummed Ryan will be in the delivery room instead of the TAM-MA. After all WHO has more experience with babies?! #Astro.
The whole situation is a bit bittersweet, however, because Vicki is leaving for Chicago for her mother’s funeral and Tamra is sad she won’t be able to attend. Tamra deals with her grief by focusing on how she’ll be the hottest grandma in the OC and that her mom Sandra will be the hottest great-grandma. She instructs Sandra to get a full-body health scan and then have some sex for the other type of full-body scan, so she doesn’t die. Only Tamra would combine sex and death and grandmothers in a heart-to-heart. I’m not sure if that’s a compliment or not…
After the new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live tonight – along with Odd Mom Out comedienne Abby Elliott. Tamra dished on her co-stars – past and present – with Andy Cohen.
They kick things off with a game where Tamra weighs in on situations in the OC. On Brooks living with Vicki, she says “that’s a Vicki problem.” On Shannon Beador and David, she says she knew about the affair and does think Shannon was right to forgive him since they’ve been married for so long. On whether Meghan Edmonds is a good fit for the show, “she’s the best bitch on there.”
Of course, Vicki’s tragic news was preceded by petty dramas with clueless Meghan Edmonds, and interspersed with scenes of whooping it up over Bunco at Shannon Beador‘s house. It seems inappropriate to write a recap that encompasses both the tragic passing of a parent and nonsense over whether or not a party invite was shady. But alas, the powers that be over at Bravo have given me this incredible opportunity. (Sarcasm).
At Meghan’s house, that’s not really Meghan’s house because Jimmy bought it and decorated it with one of his exes, they’re packing in preparation for a move. Apparently Meghan and Jimmy have moved 65 times in the last 6 minutes so I presume they’re high-class squatters and this is going to be a really interesting HGTV cross-over. Also, if you don’t really live anywhere – how have you amassed enough stuff for several junk drawers? Jimmy blames Meghan for the stuff. Because of course.
Beginning by reliving “Phone-Gate,” Meghan reflects that it was “so stupid and petty for Shannon to storm off on me like she did and make a scene in the Bello’s home. If Shannon reacted like an adult she would’ve swallowed her pride, apologized for unintentionally offending me, and explain she was caught off guard, the issue would have been laid to rest.” Yes, but then where would Meghan be? Left with no storyline? Meghan also rebuffs the idea that Bravo producers egged her on to start the drama. “There was no ambush as she described it unless she was recreating history in her own mind. What the cameras show was what happened. There was no prodding from production for me to talk to Shannon about this or to make the phone call in the first place, it was all my idea,” claims Meghan.
