Tamra-Judge-Melanoma

Anyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County or follows Tamra Judge on social media knows that she is very open- especially when it comes to discussing her body and appearance. She has been very forthcoming about everything from getting implants to taking them out to face lifts to fitness and everything in between. Now Tamra is discussing something that is actually pretty scary: skin cancer. Tamra reveals she initially thought that she had a freckle, but she got it checked and it is actually melanoma.

Lydia McLaughlin gets a car for her birthday

Oh, Lydia McLaughlin had so much good happen on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County – but the number one important event wasn’t Doug agreeing to a consolation for his ball removal, but that Lydia convinced Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge to meet and talk. Looks like the U.N. should be contacting Bravo to find their newest delegate. But maybe Lydia needs a lesson in the diplomacy of not calling people crazy first.

First up, since Lydia loves Doug’s balls, she wants us to know that she doesn’t actually want to get them cut off – she just wants them to stop producing viable sperm. Even though Doug is the “leader of our family,” baby number four is not on Lydia’s radar! “I had called and made Doug his consultation for his vasectomy because I knew he never would.”

If you were holding out hope that Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson were going to work out their issues, after reading her blog entry this week, you’ll see that ship has sailed. The Real Housewives of Orange County star declares that Vicki is dead to her and she is moving on to a new chapter in her friendship diary.

Tamra blogs about last night’s episode, “Peggy says it’s petty for Vicki and I to be arguing. MY question to her is WHO’S arguing? I’m just over Vicki’s crap and I don’t choose to have friends that stab me In the back all the time. I’m moving on — chapter closed!”

Shannon at Lydia's Magazine Launch

I made sure to wear my eclipse safety glasses while staring at the California sun, so I wouldn’t damage my eyes and miss seeing the drama on last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County. It’s a good thing too, because Kelly Dodd was wearing scrunchies on her wrists!

Last night was certainly a Me! Me! Me! episode – aren’t they all? – but this one was especially bad! It started with Vicki Gunvlason announcing that Briana’s uterus and Mike’s sperm belong to her! Cause Coto Insurance needs more worker bees to take over the family hive.

Aka, Vicki needs more grandchildren. NOW! NOW! NOW! Her sage advice to Mike is “date to mate,” as in he should only be sleeping with women he plans to reproduce with. Not before they sign a baby-nup, right?! I have a feeling Mike has listened to “Gold Digger” many-a-times and ain’t gonna get stuck with no 18 years. Either that or no woman wants to get stuck with Vicki for the next 18 years!

Vicki Gunvalson

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County, enemy factions were forced to come face-to-face for the second coming, actually THIRD coming, of Jim Edmond‘s reproductive prowess. By that I mean that Meghan Edmonds hosted a Sip and See, and decided the theme would be World War III by Bravo: Bitter-er, Blonder, Boozier.

First, though, there had to be a re-connection between Shannon “Poncho” Beador and Kelly “Rejuvenated” Dodd. Yeah, that turned into an everlasting friendship!

Vicki Gunvalson lives in a world in which no one but her equally delusional imaginary friend exists. Vicki’s slip was showing and it certainly was not virginal white as she menacingly promised to make Tamra Judge and Shannon suffer for turning their backs on her, like this is that 90’s Tori Spelling Lifetime movie A Friend To Die For where the unpopular girl takes revenge on the bully cheerleaders. Ugh – if Shannon and Tamra are your aspirational friends, oh dear than you, Vicki, are more screwed up than Brooks led us to believe you were!

Tamra & Eddie Renew Vows In Aruba

While Tamra Judge has been vacationing in Aruba, her daughter Sidney hopped on Facebook to blast Tamra’s mothering and lashed out at the Real Housewives Of Orange County star for putting reality TV before their family. 

Sidney has since deleted the excoriating post (thank you Jesus it’s logged for all posterity on the internet!), however before it was removed Tamra rampaged through the comment thread to defend herself and act like Saint Holier Than Thou Of The Jesus Barbies. You can read Sidney’s full statement here

Tamra Judge & Family In Aruba

Tamra Judge is escaping the drama of Real Housewives Of Orange County for a little R&R in Aruba with her hubby Eddie and her two youngest children Spencer and Sophia

Lucky Tamra is staying at the Ritz where she has been pretending to live Heather Dubrow‘s life enjoying the beach, the view, the luxury, and the mother-daughter bonding time with Sophia. Tamra also indulged in some deep-fried Oreos good to know the Ritz serves county fair food! 

Peggy Grabs Meghan's Lips

Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County newbie Peggy Sulahian demonstrated that she doesn’t have to be your mother to be your muva! If you left your manners in the car when you came to her event, Peggy will surely get out the bar of scented soap you sell in your pop-up boutique to wash your mouth out. Peggy certainly taught Meghan Edmonds that children should be seen and not heard! Exactly Meg, just stand there and look all ‘I’ve never had a baby and look at my chessboard inspired dress, cause I’m like smart! And on quest for TRUTH! Justice!”

But first there’s Tamra Judge, who got judged by a parrot that called her “old” as she walked into a restaurant to meet a baby looking like an escapee from a biker bar. How could anyone even see Aspen underneath the giant bow that ate the baby’s face!? I hope that’s not catching…
