Tamra Judge is tired of apologizing! The Real Housewives of Orange County star has had some shocking actions in the past, but this season, she seems to be at her worst. Spreading gossip, or what some of her cast-mates consider lies, between the other housewives just to add some drama. Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek have even named her the s–t stirrer of the group.
Well, Tamra is done saying she is sorry. And according to her, she needs to take time to focus on her family, instead of the drama in the O.C.
Yesterday we reported that Vicki Gunvalson was hip to the fact that her former bestie, Tamra Judge, was doing nothing this season but stirring the drama pot. Well, today, Lizzie Rovsek says she absolutely agrees.
This season the feud that will not end, all has to do with Tamra lying to Shannon Beador about an email. If you need a refresher, Shannon was opening up to Tamra about the troubles in her marriage. At that exact moment, her husband texted her and wanted to know why Heather Dubrow was talking about his marriage troubles at a restaurant.
Shannon asked Tamra if she had told Heather about her marriage, and in a very cringe-worthy moment, flat out lied to Shannon’s face. Leading Shannon to confront Heather about it and Heather to ‘kick’ Shannon out of her house. Whew! I think brings everyone up to speed.
Lizzie asked her advice on Twitter the night before, tweeting, “Off to LaLaLand to tape the RHOC reunion tomorrow. Any good advice for my first reunion? Besides #TRUTH??” After filming, Lizzie declared, “I told the truth and was true to myself.” I honestly believe her!
Nothing about this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County shocked me. Until everyone opens their eyes and figures out that Tamra Barney is to blame for every single (ok, maybe not every single one, but pretty darn close) relationship problem in Orange County, it will be more of the same. Tamra lies, drama ensues, Tamra denies, rinse and repeat.
The newcomers, Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek, have Tamra‘s lying pot stirring ways figured out, but Heather Dubrow is forever stuck in her own self-righteous fantasy world. Heather’s too busy blowing everything out of proportion and bellyaching about Shannon “yelling” at her to see what Tamra has done. Le sigh.
In her blog, Shannon bemoaned, “It is nice to see Vicki have compassion for me. What is disturbing is Tamra not taking responsibility for starting all of this nonsense between Heather and I.” I, for one, am extremely disappointed that Vicki Gunvalson failed to call out the liarface this week. Vicki knew Tamra was lying – and she kept mum! Grrr!
Tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange Countywas another dinner party from hell and Tamra Judge headed off to NYC to defend herself and the events of the evening on Watch What Happens Live. The reality star swears she didn’t do anything wrong as she reacted to questions from Andy and the show’s fans.
Andy jumps right in to share with Tamra the fans’ reactions toward her on Twitter tonight after the episode. “Tamra, you’re getting roasted on Twitter.” She retorts, “Good, I’m doing my job then.” When Andy asks if she’s been reading them she says “No, I don’t really get into the whole Twitter..” Andy laughs, not buying it.
Andy mentions that Vicki Gunvalson is a whole a new person this season, sitting by and not jumping into the drama. Tamra throws shade with a “no comment” face and eye roll.
I don’t know about y’all, but I am still in awe of the fact that Vicki Gunvalson was the voice of reason on Monday’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Next week is sure to be a doozie, right? While it was equal parts awkward and painful to watch the scenes with Shannon Beador and husband David as he vocalized with brutal honesty how hard their marriage is, it was actually pretty real for Bravo reality. At least Shannon has learned to be weary of Tamra Judge and her dealings with Heather Dubrow.
Of this week’s show, Shannon starts, “Aloha from Hawaii! I am so happy that you finally get to see what is the beginning of a turning point in my marriage! What starts out to be a tough episode ends with hope for healing in my marriage and I am truly grateful for that!”
Shannon writes, “I probably had one of the most emotional weeks of my life after David sent me the infamous email. Typically I am a pretty strong and secure person, but you can see that I have become insecure, especially about my marriage. Brooks had some great advice at dinner by saying to forget the past because I have to focus on my future and my marriage,” adding, “Going dancing at Andeles was exactly the right prescription for David and I. As much as I love for David to be ‘fun David,’ David also loves it when I am fun. I can be quite crazy and have danced on my fair share of stages and tables when I have been out with David or friends. I’m glad you get to see that. What I am not so proud of, however, are my not-so-pretty dance moves. Yikes!” Yikes is right.
I knew it would happen, y'all. It was just a matter of time before Real Housewives of Orange County newbie started to get on my last nerve. On Monday's episode, Shannon Beador and husband David traveled to Mexico with Vicki Gunvalson and that guy, and it just seems that nothing is ever as Shannon hopes it will be. The room is too small. Her husband has too much tequila, the ladies are judging her relationship by using the stories she's woefully told them when things were bad. She's under a microscope. Nope, Shannon. You just chose to live your life on reality television.
Of Monday's show, she begins, "It's especially difficult to watch these episodes that are about my marriage. It was hard enough to go through as we were filming, but as I watch again, I am basically reliving it. While some of it is positive, some of it is not. I am glad that you get to see David and I packing for Mexico. There is a sweet moment in my dressing room where I giggle when David hugs me. When David and I are connected, sometimes I act like a little kid and get giddy around him because I am still so in love with him. I am really looking forward to going on the trip and starting to initiate different approaches to my relationship because the ones I have been using have been failing miserably."
