It's always odd to refer to reality TV as too much reality but last night's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was like watching a high-gloss, ultraglam version of Intervention.
Vicki Gunvalson needs a serious wake-up call and unfortunately being called out on national television by her daughter and close friends wasn't enough to do it.
Here let me try to help: Vicki – BROOKS AYERS is a loser. He's using you. He's gross. No one likes him for a reason. Please dump him, get a restraining order, and then get thoroughly STD tested. Hey that's just my advice, but I think you should take it! I'm starting to think Brooks has some serious mega dirt on Vicki – is this a case of blackmail gone Stockholm Syndrome?
Joining him will be Briana Culberson whose hubby Ryan is behind the recordings. Vicki apparently breaks down. In the wake of all the drama there is a lot of swirling information about whether or not Vicki and Brooks have broken up?
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot 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!
I don't know if there's magic powers in the blinged out bible or she just finally decided that being herself was better than trying too hard. Or maybe Jim Bellino let her have brain back and reversed the lobotomy? Because not only is Alexis thinking for herself she's setting a good example for the other ladies to put pettiness aside and forgiving but not forgetting!
"It's easy to forgive, even though you don't necessarily forget. . .," Alexis writes in her Bravo blog of all the changed relationships she's experienced this season.
I dunno what you call that sort of cry where no liquid emanates? I mean is it all the botox? At the very least I would expect wine to come out 'cause all they consume is wine. Well, that and bulls#*!.
So much happened last night – where to begin…
Well, let's all get this out of the way: Alexis Bellino talked about JIM BLOB's man part. It was the most awkward 2 minutes of television ever! She tripped and stumbled over a forced non sequitur about how he wears a size 14 shoe if you know what she's saying… EW! So that's how things started and if you can believe it they went downhill from there!
Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi were friends for literally less time than it takes to blow dry a set of blonde extensions and all of the sudden they're back to fighting about the same. old. ridiculous. things. Namely who's lying about what and whether or not Gretchen cheated on her first fiance. Do we care? Nope we don't but Bravo thinks we do…
In her Bravo blog, Tamra calls out Gretchen for refusing to let go of the past despite the fact that she hauled five-year-old photographs to the reunion!
It's probably a good thing Eddie Judge decided to open a gym and get out of the "legal business". I mean, that's saying he was ever in the legal business legally to begin with. Before hooking his wagon wheel toTamra Barney, Eddie was the manager of his father's law firm. Unfortunately he's being sued along with his father's law firm!
A source reached out to us to let us know that Eddie's behavior at his adoptive father's law firm was serious cause for concern.
Yeppers, old Ed-wino of the infamous Real Housewives of Orange County bathtub porn scene is being taken to court! An attorney who was formerly employed by the Judge Law Firm filed a suit against the firm for Wrongful Termination and Unfair Competition. According to the lawsuit, filed in California Superior Court, the attorney claims she was wrongfully terminated when she complained about unethical practices in the firm – namely that Eddie was practicing law without a license!
Fact: The friendship between Real Housewives of Orange County'sGretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney deteriorated just as quickly as it was rekindled. I think we've all figured out that Tamra's loyalty (what little of it she may have) lies with Vicki Gunvalson. And lie they do, according to Gretchen! Truth: I love Reba McIntyre but I am not surprised that something called Malibu Country didn't last. It's lived longer in this feud than it ever could have on cable. Fact: Bravo really needs to put a length restriction on their blogs. Truth: I tried to just give y'all the highlights!
In her Bravo blog, Gretchen writes about the infamous Jay Photolou situation, "Fact: The man the women continue to bring up I took to court and won seven counts against. In order to find someone guilty of punitive damages the jury needs to find that person acted with fraud, malice, or intent. Furthermore the claims he tried to bring against me for defaming him, false light, and slander, the jury found in favor of me and not of him."
She continues, "Fact: Tamrasays in one breath at the reunion that she still doesn't know all the details of what really happened between me and this man but then five seconds later she is whipping out pictures and seems to think she knows exactly what happened between us. She can't even keep her stories straight. She continues to challenges Lauri [Peterson]'s accusations saying 'If she didn't see them in bed together then she really doesn't know what happened.'"
