Remember that time the ladies of the OC went on vacation together and it actually ended on a positive? Of course you do…it was this week’s installment! Sure there was drama when the Real Housewives of Orange County invaded Mo’orea, but it didn’t end with a screeching Tamra Judge promising never to return. Hasty words, I guess. Despite the constant tension between Shannon Beador and Meghan Edmonds (or Meghan KING Edmonds, as Shannon calls her…like she’s disciplining a child who has done something bad enough to warrant the dreaded three names), their last supper ended with laughter instead of screaming.
The women had some fun along the way, as well, with Heather Dubrow leading the charge to ignore comfort zones and keep things light. Lizzie Rovsek hasn’t quite recovered from the insanity of last year’s girls’ trip, so she tried to stay in the background and out of the squabbles. She keeps a surprisingly level head when rehashing Sunday’s show.
Gushing about the trip, Meghan shares, “It made me smile to watch these last couple episodes of our trip because of how much fun we all had together. It was an exhausting girls’ trip, but I would go again in a heartbeat! …Especially since I have so much going on right now.”
Shannon Beador was enjoying the beaches of Mo’orea and its tasty minibar gummie treats until Tropical Storm Meghan Edmondsand her oversized headbands blew in. After this week’s Real Housewives of Orange Countyrounded out their final days in Tahiti, Shannon admits she was ready to get home. She discusses Meghan’s apology (spoiler alert: she’s not loving it!), her friendship with Vicki Gunvalson, and – of course – the state of her marriage to David.
After surviving her “fireball” whoop-it-up night with Vicki and Tamra Judge, Shannon says she wasn’t ready to spend a hungover day with the entire gang, “let alone swimming with fish in a claustrophobic headpiece from the 1960s!” She also expresses shock at hearing Meghan’s description of hubby Jim’s 2nd ex-wife. “I have not yet commented on anything that is going on in Meghan’s life when I am not present, but I was absolutely flabbergasted that she said Jim’s second ex-wife was a ‘very unhappy person’. As a stepmother and co-parent, I think that goes way below the belt. Not nice,” scolds Shannon.
As the last night of Mo’orea came to a close, Heather Dubrow found herself in the middle of a pot-stirring situation. She explains why she wasn’t “going after” Tamra Judge during dinner, why being friends with Jim Edmonds’ second ex-wife and current wife #3 Meghan Edmonds is A-okay, in her book. Plus, Heather hints at a “bizarre turn” of events to come on next week’s Real Housewives of Orange County.
After filling us in on her busy summer with the kids, Heather dives into this week’s episode. She admits, “Yes, Tamra and Vicki [Gunvalson] were VERY hungover, but we had plans and I wanted to get them moving! We were on vacation and there is time to nap later! I know in my interview I said they aren’t 18 anymore…I meant 21…I know what the legal drinking age is and I’m certainly not condoning underage drinking! Just a slip of the tongue!”
Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County the ladies played Bravo’s most popular game: She/said-She/Said. The winner was Meghan Edmonds, who claimed the ‘Pot Stirrer Meet Kettle’ award. Because honestly, accusing someone else of being a pot stirrer in defense of Tamra Judge is absolutely ludicrous beyond belief!
As is always the case on vacations Tamra and Vicki Gunvalson can’t keep it in their pants… their bodily functions that is. After a night of binge drinking Tamra, Vicki, and Shannon Beador are in no condition to go on an underwater excursion. As Tamra termed it she can’t stop s#*!ing herself. Can we get Tamra and Vicki some sort of potty training refresher course? Meanwhile not even the nebulizer can clear out Shannon’s brain.
Heather Dubrow, wearing DENIM CUTOFFS (it was like an alien sighting — but she looked great), barges in to try to rally them, but even her assurances that she had Depends and wipes in her Birkin couldn’t get Vicki and Shannon to come along. Tamra dragged herself aboard the bus and worked diligently not to poop her 1992 Hair Band video vixen hot pink one-piece during the boat trip.
The ladies of Real Housewives Of Orange County are in Tahiti and Meghan is having meltdowns because she wishes she could just have her step kids all to herself. Tamra, who is in a custody battle with her ex-husband, took Meghan’s comments personally and explains in her blog why it upset her.
Beginning with the positive Tamra says Tahiti was her “favorite trip” with the ladies and gushes about the fabulously fun time she had taking shots with Vicki and Shannon. But it wasn’t all binge drinking and peeing in the pool (which Tamra doesn’t think she did), Meghan also sobbed over the fact that she has to share her stepchildren, and Tamra thinks Meghan needs to get a little perspective.
Remember the woman Tamra Judge frequently liked to call Jesus Jugs? You know, before Tamra found enlightenment and all that? Well, former Real Housewives of Orange County’sAlexis Bellino may not be holding an orange anymore, but she’s still making that Alexis Couture fashion line happen! And she’s giving away one dress from her line, along with a personal meet and greet, to one lucky fan all in the name of charity.
The meet and greet, awarded to one winner and up to four of his or her most patient friends, will be auctioned off via Charitybuzz. Donation bids will benefit Children’s Craniofacial Association (CCA), an organization that raises money to help children born with facial differences, sometimes referred to as disfigurements. CCA offers assistance and even retreats for families whose children must seek treatment or surgery for facial differences. Sounds like a wonderful cause, truly.
Tamra Judge is not ready to give up on rebuilding a relationship with her 16-year-old daughter Sydney – even if that means taking ex-husband Simon Barney back to court! This time Tamra is fighting to have Simon’s full custody of Sydney revoked claiming he is in contempt of court. I’d say he’s contemptuous alright!
The exes have been waging war against each other over custody after Simon filed court documents barring their three minor children from appearing on Real Housewives Of Orange County, plus accusing Tamra of abuse and neglect. Simon was seeking to revoke joint custody from Tamra. However, Simon was called out by a judge for exaggerating his claims, for which he had no proof, although the judge upheld the decision that the kids be kept off reality TV.
