A few beautiful wedding dresses can make anything better! Even a limo full of badly behaving Real Housewives of Orange County. Yep, I like even Tamra Barney better when she's all stuffed into a stunning white gown. Maybe because I can imagine the fabric drowning out her voice.
So last night was another infamous Tamra Starts Getting Married episode. After she decided to be the the bigger girl and invite Alexis Bellino to her ultimate special dress shopping extravaganza for trip down the aisle numero tres, friction between Gretchen Rossi who like totally thought she was the numero uno in importance, arose. Tamra no likey.
Tamra meets finace Eddie for dinner at their gym which is still basically an abandoned warehouse at this point and Tamra is wearing some sort of animal hide cape. Seriously – what was that thing Cruella DeVille? I thought Tamra only killed and skinned other housewives. Silence of the Implants!
How much fun was it to walk down memory lane with the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County? Lest we forget (as if she'd ever let us!) Vicki Gunvalson has been there since day one. I mean, hey, her kids are part of the reason that it even exists!
In her Bravo blog, Vicki attempts to come across as light-hearted, normal, and down-to-earth. She'd never spread gossip, and she's sad by broken friendships. Has she been watching the same ninety-nine episodes to which we've been treated? Vicki takes particular offense to former friend Lauri Peterson's return to stir the pot…something she's never done herself, right?
Ahh, the memories. Let's hear Vicki's take on it, shall we?
Last night the show celebrated its 100th episode with a 2-hour flashback/recap of some of the show's most iconic moments. Among the milestones was catching up with some of the memorable cast mates throughout the 8-season run and discussing current cast member's reflections to how the show has evolved.
Tamra Barney, you will be relieved to know, hasn't changed one single iota except her hair has gotten less frizzy and her boobs smaller. Thank God for small mercies… #sarcasm In her casting video Tamra is a grade-A bitch and says when producers told her they were deciding between her and one other woman for the spot she turned up the ruthlessness.
Celebrating 100 episodes of true craziness (and for being Housewives pioneers) all the old favorites from the seasons past of RHOC will return to talk shop, dish on behind-the-scenes details, and reveal top secret info we've all been dying to know. Such as, just how on earth did we get stuck with Slave Smiley?
We're finally getting even more details of Tamra Barney'sover-the-top wedding to Eddie Judge straight from the reality star's mouth. The nuptials, which will be featured in a three-part Bravo spin-off beginning September 2, had the bride wearing three different dresses and incorporated all four of her children. The Real Housewives of Orange County's resident loudmouth even had all of her co-stars on hand to celebrate with her.
Tamra tells Us Weekly, "Words can't even describe the weekend. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. It went by so fast!"
Describing her walk down the aisle with eldest son Ryan to get to her groom, she says, "Oh gosh … [Eddie's] so handsome and then he was in that tux. In the three and a half years I've known Eddie, I've never seen him cry. It was really wrenching to see him standing there with tears in his eyes. I thought, 'Oh my God, this guy really does love me!'"
Our favorite reality TV stars can't get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
The besties for a minute have recently been experiencing some friction in their relationship – particularly as Tamra reconnects with Vicki Gunvalson and tries to rehab her image as a reformed mean girl.
I have to hand it to Tamra, for a season and a half she has really been selling us on this whole 'Gretchen is my BFFL and I misjudged her all this time. I'm so happy we made amends' act. I almost believed her. Oh, who am I kidding – we were as likely to buy that as we were to buy a Gretchen Christine Plasticine Sack.
Now that the Tamretchen fractures are being featured on the show, Tamra is only too eager to reveal that yeah, Gretchen is kinda annoying. In her new blog she complains about Slave Slimey, Gretchen's 'ultimatums' and Lauri Peterson's ulterior motives concerning Tamra's true bestie Vicki Gunvalson!
