Tamra Judge

Instagram Roundup: Teresa Giudice, Brittany Cartwright, Bethenny Frankel, Chelsea Houska, & More

With Christmas fast-approaching, there is so much to enjoy from decorating, from holiday shows to even turning up with friends. Your favorite reality stars celebrated the holidays a little bit early and shared some photos just in time for this week’s Instagram Roundup.

The Real Housewives of New York stars Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer gathered for the annual Christmas party at Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires home. Where was Carole Radziwill, though? Maybe she’s the one who took the group photo. Otherwise it would be a real shame if she missed out on a Dorinda-hosted event after she “cooked, decorated, and made it nice.”

Jeff Lewis Discusses Shannon Beador’s Divorce, The RHOC Reunion, His Relationship With Zoila, & Having More Kids With Gage Edward

Jeff Lewis is one of the few Bravolebrities that can appear on Watch What Happens Live while their show is in between seasons. He is so ingrained in everything Bravo, has close friendships with fellow Bravolebrities, and has opinions on almost every year. If Andy Cohen ever wanted to go on vacation, Jeff would be a great fill-in host for a few nights.

Jeff shared his love for Vanderpump Rules, his Real Housewives of Orange County insight as a close friend of Shannon Beador, a status update on his relationship with Zoila Chavez, and plans to have more children with Gage Edward.

Vicki Gunvalson hugs Shannon Beador & Tamra Judge

Halleluja! The miracle Lydia McLaughlin has been praying for all season finally happened on last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion part 2: Vicki Gunvalson sincerely apologized, and made amends with Tamra Judge. It was a real apology, too, not one fueled by alcohol and ratings. It truly was a reunion for once!

Tamicki love each other – they really love each other! Included in this pile of re-love was Shannon Beador. Who may never really forgive David Vicki, but she’ll never get over him her either.

It was the perfect way to end things. And hopefully they’ll truly move on. After all, just how many seasons can we stretch out the indomitable Brooks Ayers drama (it’s going on 5 seasons now!)? We get it – he’s scum, and Vicki was an innocent virginal angel duped because of her saintly loving heart.

Shannon Beador Celebrates Thanksgiving

Hopefully you’ve all recovered from your turkey comas to get back onto the internet to see how all our reality star families celebrated Thanksgiving.

Above, Shannon Beador celebrated Thanksgiving without David. “Blessed with my amazing family! #3beautifuldaughters #sweetestdogever #grandmapatishere,” the Real Housewives Of Orange County star shared. “Hope that everyone has had a Happy Thanksgiving! Love having my mom in town! And a huge thank you for the very kind comments this week!”

Below you’ll find photos of Melissa Gorga on vacation in paradise, Vicki Gunvalson‘s amazing table, Tiny Harris thankful for a private jet, Jenelle Evans enjoying the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in NYC, and NeNe Leakes giving back with Marlo Hampton!

Peggy Sulahian Thinks Lydia McLaughlin’s Religious Beliefs Should Be Off Limits; Sad About The RHOC Divorce Announcements

Wait – was Peggy Sulahian actually at the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion? Because I don’t recall her saying much, aside from a confusing explanation of how coal works atop a grill. In any case, Peggy has a lot to say about what other people said at the reunion, and she breaks it all down in her blog this week!

According to Peggy, Meghan Edmonds needs to back off the attacks on Lydia McLaughlin. She expresses her outrage at Meghan questioning Lydia’s religious beliefs: “There are some topics that are off limits and another person’s faith should be one of them. Why would you dare attack someone’s faith?”

Shannon Beador opens up about her divorce

The first part of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion was shockingly real as the ladies discussed broken marriages and motherhood. Shannon Beador finally stopped shrieking “WOOOOWWWWW! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! A VOW RENEWAL!” and quit convincing herself that David loves her. Which has always been the real joke. I mean, it’s been over for years – vow renewal and all –  but Shannon finally accepted it and moved out. Addendum: David finally kicked her out.

I mean it’s not like anyone believed this happy re-united love story of David and Shannon, although she certainly thought they were this inspiration to us all, but it’s still sad to see Shannon processing everything. Clearly she never saw it coming, which is the saddest thing of all.

The other hot topic was whether Jesus ate Lydia McLaughlin‘s brain, thus making her poisoned by a fear of drag queens. OK, it wasn’t quite that dramatic unless you’re Meghan Edmonds.

Shannon Beador Says Vicki Gunvalson’s Apology In Iceland “Wasn’t Very Sincere”; Admits Tamra Judge Hurt Her Feelings “A Few Times” This Season

This was a brutal season for Shannon Beador, but she seems to be taking it all in stride and owning her shit. She announced that she and David Beador have separated. She has admitted to projecting her feelings on the other women in the cast. She has apologized for blaming her weight gain on stress from Vicki Gunvalson.

Now she seems like she is ready for a fresh start and that new beginning might include a friendship with former enemy Kelly Dodd.

RHOC Season 12 Finale

Was last night not one of the most boring Real Housewives Of Orange County finales ever?! At least Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge completely gave up the pretense of trying to fix their friendship – which was refreshing. Other than that the only drama was some weird mythical uproar Shannon Beador suddenly developed for Peggy Sulahian who is literally a walking coma. Diko has definitely done all the heavy-lifting in the drama department with those two.

I get that Shannon and Peggy don’t like each other, but this drama erupted over some old news and seemed like drama for drama’s sake. Sort of like Shannon herself!

This all predicated around a candle party. Yes, a candle party. A candle party to celebrate all the haaaaard difficult work we never saw Meghan Edmonds actually DO to launch her signature collection.
