Real Housewives of Orange County got ugly and personal on the last epside. Usually the women just stick to arguing with each other and that seems like fair game since they all get paid to socialize on reality television.
But this week, Shannon Beador’s mother-in-law decided to stir up some family drama and ruin her granddaughters’ concert. It was so tasteless and ultimately it just hurt the kids. This was way different than the Housewife-on-Housewife fights that we usually witness. It was a totally different ball game.
I felt so awkward watching the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. As much as I could tell that Shannon Beador’s mother-in-law loves her grand kids, it was definitely in poor taste for her to shit talk Shannon to Kelly Dodd and Tamra Judge – both of whom she had just met that day. It made an already tense situation even worse for the family. Also, it was bad timing for Kelly, who just finally found herself on good terms with Shannon.
It is obvious that Kelly tried hard to calm down the situation and to comfort the mother-in-law, assuring her that Shannon has no animosity, but the woman was totally out of control. She caused a lot of unnecessary drama and put Kelly in an awkward spot in her already-fragile friendship with Shannon.
A new week means a new gallery of the reality TV stars showing off, throwing shade, or sharing snapshots on Twitter and Instagram. Then there’s Bethenny Frankel, in a category all of her own, Skinnygirl! Everything! Forever!, showing off her bikini body while promoting her watermelon line.
Yikes was last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County a mess! We all know Bravo loves a family drama, but David’s mother-in-law covertly, sniper from the side-style, attacking Shannon Beadorwhile roaming the crowd at a place called The Blue Beet during her granddaughters’ rock star debut… Well, even I’m shocked!
There was a lot of ridiculous this episode. Vicki Gunvalson being utterly baffled that her children consider her a high-maintenance nightmare? Ridiculous! Tamra Judge truly believing herself a ‘peacemaker’. RIDICULOUS! Shannon micro-mom-aging her preteen daughters rock rehearsal, then taking OVER the microphone during practice to demonstrate for them. Ridiculous!
Get your airplane sick bags out, people. Or you might want to set your DVR (so you can fast forward) because tonight on The Real Housewives of Orange County we’re going to be rehashing (for the 12 millionth time!) David Beador’s AFFAIR!!!!
Just when you think we’ve finally put this this storyline to bed with the “closure” of a vow renewal and a second honeymoon, that damned A word sneaks back up on us!! On tonight’s episode David’s family shows up to watch the Beador girls perform for the first time and they say some hurtful things about Shannon– basically blaming her for David’s cheating.
Also throwing a party last night was Us Magazine. Showing up for that event was Bethenny Frankel and her sidekick Carole Radziwill, as well as Padma Lakshmi and others. Check out all of the photos below!
Oh how the tide has changed. Vicki Gunvalson started out this season as public enemy number one on Real Housewives of Orange County. Now that Vicki got in that scary dune buggy accident, she actually has a valid reason to play the victim. Not only that, but it can also be argued that she has a legitimate reason to come after Shannon Beador now after her less than caring reaction to Vicki’s hospitalization.
