Shannon will be joining Vicki, Tamra Judge, and the newly returning (and insanely boring) Lydia McLaughlin. I just want to know how I’m hearing about this decision before hearing a confirmation that Kelly Dodd will be back. Love her or hate her, we need Kelly back on this show.
Out of all the former Real Housewives of Orange County cast members, I never ever expected Lydia McLaughlin to make a return, but it is being reported that she is. She is one of the few former Housewives that hasn’t been fame whoring to stay relevant so I just never thought she would to return. Plus, she actually quit (instead of being fired) because it wasn’t the right fit for her. So it’s pretty shocking that she’s about to come back.
No offense to everyone else in the cast, but Lydia just always seemed like she was way too good of a person to be on this show. There is not a reason in the world to dislike Lydia, but I just felt like she was too nice to be on RHOC. She never really got into it with the other women and the only remotely scandalous thing about her was her pot-loving mom- whom we all loved.
It so hard to know what to believe when it comes to Tamra Judge’s estranged relationship with her daughter Sidney Barney. For everyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County, it’s possible to go for the narrative that has Tamra’s ex husband Simon Barney controlling Sidney’s opinions about Tamra. Then there are these other accusations that Tamra is actually a “monster mom.” Either way, the result is the same: Tamra hasn’t seen her daughter in years and she considers herself to be an “erased mom” who has participated in a documentary about erased family members.
I have to admit that I feel really awkward writing this one. This is obviously a very sensitive topic for everyone involved and it’s just legitimately tough to know what’s actually true as a total outsider who’s attempting to observe. Is Tamra’s participation in this documentary a last ditch effort to appeal to Sidney? Or is this just making their private family struggle way more public than it needs to be?
It’s no secret that the Real Housewives love anything that could possibly make them look more youthful. I just figured they would go to the top doctors to get these procedures done. Although that does seem to be the case, Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador decided to take the needle in their own hands during a recent trip to a plastic surgery office.
That cannot be legal, right? Hopefully they were just posing for the camera and not actually injecting each other with whatever was in the needles. I’m also wondering who took this photo. I’m hoping that Tamra had her arm stretched out for a selfie. Or the Bravo camera crew took it, perhaps.
Multiple sources confirm Meghan will not return next season, although it’s not clear if she was fired, quit, or it was a mutual decision. After filming for season 11 wrapped, Meghan and Jim pretty much moved back to St. Louis, because Meghan wanted to be near family to raise her daughter Aspen.
Unfortunately, Tamra Judge went through a pretty scary experience recently thanks to skin cancer. Thankfully, she was on top of getting her examinations and had the squamous skin cancer removed. Tamra shared her experiences on social media and hopefully this encouraged the Real Housewives of Orange County star’s followers to be diligent with skin care and dermatologist visits.
This is the one time when I am happy that a reality TV star exposed some skin on Instagram. It’s good Tamra was open, honest, and spread awareness about something that could affect anyone.
