Real Housewives of Orange County is not going to go quietly into oblivion following their explosive seventh season. Oh, no – they’re clinging, grasping, mawing, and groping for attention like a flock of famewhoring zombies. Which is actually a great description of what actually happens with these reality stars. But back to the story…
So a couple weeks ago Micah Tanous (that guy who was the husband of one-season Housewife Peggy Tanous) took to twitter to announce that some of the ladies of RHOC were buying twitter followers. Oh, you don’t say. Apparently the very bored girls of the RHOC who do not want us to forget they exist in the off-season turned it into a major scandal (in their eyes).
After exonerating themselves from any misdeeds where the buying of fans is concerned they decided one lady was guilty as accused. And just who did they coincidentally deduce was the guilty party? Alexis Bellino!
Oh good lord – please accept that your 15 minutes of fame are up and get a real job. Oh, did I say that out loud? Anyway, Micah Tanous, husband of ex-Real Housewife Of Orange County star Peggy Tanous has taken to twitter to accuse his wife’s former co-stars of paying for their hundreds of thousands of twitter followers.
I mean everyone knows number of twitter followers = amount of self worth, right? Only if you’re a D-List Celebrity! In an accusatory tweet, Micahannounced: “I just answered a call from the company that is SELLING all the current #RHOC cast their Twitter followers, What a F’ing Joke! Fake likes!?!”
Tamra Barney, always quick with the reply and self-defense immediately shot back with, “that’s bullshit…I have never bought a follower in my life!!!!”
Reality Television has made us laugh, made us cringe, and most of all, made us realize that some people are just crazy. Proving that when you get a whole bunch of famewhores in a room to rehash a season’s worth of petty slights, silly disagreements, and passive-aggressive warfare; things can get really scary. A reunion is one place I’d never go without a bodyguard.
Below we count down our TOP 7 Reality TV Reunion Meltdowns. Oh, pseudo-celebs, you don’t ever disappoint!
Sometimes on reality TV the drama is far better off camera than on. Which is exactly the case on Real Housewives of Orange County! Really, why bother with all the editing when these people create straight up chaos without it.
In the latest, Jim Bellino has been campaigning against the show all season long and following an explosive reunion, King Jimbo is making no secret of wanting Alexis Bellino to hand in her two weeks notice.
Here’s how it all began. Following the reunion, Alexisblogged about Tamra Barney‘s “Jesus Jugs” comment and stated it insulted Christians everywhere.
“Jesus Barbie was cute, but almost crossing the line — I can take it in stride. Yet, Jesus Jugs doesn’t just cross the line, it catapults over it. That comment has offended Christians everywhere. How does she decorate her home in crosses yet make a remark like that without an ounce of guilt?”
“Then she is promoting Jesus Jugs wine glasses her Facebook page? So now it’s blasphemy along with defaming Jesus and monetizing on what He sacrificed for us.”
In response, Tamra took the mouth that gets her in trouble over to RumorFix to accuse Alexis of being a “faux Christian.”
Oh Vicki Gunvalson…I just don’t know what to say. You’re so business savvy, and while I’m glad that your love tank is finally full, I continue to question your choices.
After an explosive two part Real Housewives of Orange County finale followed by an even more intense two part reunion, the relationship between Vicki and her Cajun beau Brooks Ayers is more front and center than it has been–and we all know it’s been pretty front and center. Vicki talks to Bravo about the tumultuous season, and she seems to play down the drama. Um, we were all watching!
Vicki tells Bravo, “I’ve been on the show for seven great years, and each season has had its ups and downs.”
Of watching in real time Vicki insists, “[I]t’s still interesting for me to watch the show with everyone else,” stating, “[M]uch of what you don’t see is the quieter moments, how much I love just being at home and enjoying time with my family. I have to laugh, it makes for boring TV, but I love those quiet times too!”
Is there a RHOC without Vicki? Page Six seems to think so!
They report: “Bravo is looking to ax cast members from The Real Housewives of Orange County to bring in some fresh — and wealthy — talent. Sources told us Bravo execs are looking to refresh the cast the same way that it revamped the cast of its New York City franchise this season, adding three new women.”
Sometimes you see things on TV that are straight up embarrassing. Case in point: The ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County on last night’s reunion. I may just go ahead on record and call this the most vitriolic reunion ever. Am I crazy?
Some things should be kept private – or at least off camera – but never underestimate the power of a desperate and delusional blonde!
Tmara Barney and Gretchen Rossi continued their reign as the over-the-hill trainwreck Barbies – and both their weaves had to come from the Barbie Comes To Life Wig Collection, sold exclusively in the Sunday morning coupon section of your local newspaper.
I assumed Heather Dubrow was brought on to inject a dose of class into this mess? Mission failed.
