Tamra Judge

Meghan, Tamra, Shannon talk about Vicki

The party Meghan Edmonds had for her newborn baby during the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was beyond awkward. Sure, it was a beautiful event, but meeting baby Aspen was eclipsed by all the drama between the cast since this was the first time all season that they were all in the same room.

Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge are still doing what they can to ignore Vicki Gunvalson, even though they are all on the same reality TV show together. Peggy Sulahian is still being super rude and making zero sense. It was a relatively calm episode in comparison to others this season, but there was still a lot going on.

Lydia & Peggy

Even though Lydia McLaughlin returned to Real Housewives of Orange County under the guise of being a self-proclaimed “friendship whisperer,” she’s come across as more of a shit stirrer than anything. Weeks after the episode with Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd’s confrontation at the Quiet Woman aired, Lydia is still defending herself and insisting that she didn’t intend to cause drama. Sure, Lydia. Likely story…

Aside from shamelessly promoting her magazine, her main story line this season is her supposed quest to reunite the friendships in the cast- even though she herself never kept in touch with Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge when she left the show and she isn’t close to anyone in the cast. It all seems way out of bounds for her take on, but she is still really pushing this “friendship whisperer” nonsense.

Kelly Dodd makes amends with Shannon

Even though we are only a few episodes into this Real Housewives of Orange County season, it is still hard to figure out Peggy Sulahian. None of her metaphors or jokes make any sense. Is she trying to be funny or does she just actually not know what’s going on?

As of now, it’s hard to tell, but one person who does not seem to be a fan of Peggy’s is Kelly Dodd. Sure, that hasn’t really come across in the episodes we’ve seen so far, but Kelly definitely makes it clear that she is not too fond of the new girl these days.

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!

Peggy Sulahian Defends Pinching Meghan Edmonds' Lips Closed; Says She Was Making Vicki Gunvalson Uncomfortable

Even though Meghan Edmonds had zero interaction with any other cast members for the first three episodes this season, she sure has a lot to say about the ladies now. Obviously she has some strong opinions about the new girl Peggy Sulahian ever since she physically shut her lips to stop her from talking.

She is still mad at Kelly Dodd for accusing her husband Jim Edmonds of having affair in response to Meghan asking Kelly if she was having an affair herself. In my eyes, those were pretty much the same offense, but Meghan feels like Kelly really crossed the line just because Meghan was pregnant when they had the conversation. If someone wants a stress-free pregnancy, I don’t feel like instigating Kelly Dodd is the way to go.

Peggy Grabs Meghan's Lips

Even though Meghan Edmonds is the one who brought Kelly Dodd to Real Housewives of Orange County, the two could not be more different. Not only that, but Kelly has serious issues with Meghan’s good friends Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador and has chosen to stand by Vicki Gunvalson (Meghan’s least favorite person in the cast) no matter what.

Needless to say, it’s clear that Meghan had no idea what she was getting herself into when she introduced Kelly to reality TV. And now Kelly has gone from starting shit with Meghan’s friends, to coming at Meghan herself.  And aside from the Kelly drama, Meghan isn’t off to a great start with the new girl Peggy Sulahian.

Thanks to Peggy Sulahian, Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador had a night off from making the most offensive moves during the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Peggy actually had the nerve to pinch Meghan Edmonds’ lips shut while she was talking and even though Kelly wasn’t there for that moment, she watched the episode and was very amused by it.

Not only did Kelly find the lip pinching to be entertaining television, but she also has a lot of serious shade to throw at Meghan and her husband Jim Edmonds.

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.
