When Lydia McLaughlin opted not to return to the Real Housewives of Orange County for season 9, most viewers — me included — thought she just didn't want to deal with all the drama. During her season she had to deal with the whole Vicki/Laurie skiing screaming match, if you do recall. But that actually was not the case at all.
The real reason Lydia opted not to return, was in order to focus on having a third baby. After announcing in April that she was pregnant, Lydia is now ready to reveal the baby's gender. In a new interview with OK! magazine, the entrepreneur also talks about some up-coming projects and if she keeps in touch with any of the other housewives.
Never saw this one coming! Vicki Gunvalson has brought a level head to an argument between friends! The Real Housewives of Orange County star has often been full of contradictions. We all remember her screaming at Gretchen Rossi — dressed for the 80s with crimped hair, no less — about Brooks' issues with his outstanding child support being none of her business when Vicki had brought up Slade's child support issues numerous times in the past.
Well, apparently that is the Vicki of past seasons. Because when it came down to choosing sides between Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow, she brought a level head and logic to the table. She explained her rational decision in her latest Bravo blog.
We all saw Adrienne and Paul go head-to-head on the RHOBH. They were often seen bickering and Adrienne was also degrading to Paul most of the time. (If you ask me.)
After their tumultuous divorce, Adrienne was seen around town with quite a slew of boy toys including Sean Stewart, who was more than 20 years her junior. Now it seems that it is Paul's turn for romance.
During the show, we saw a shattered Shannon, confide in Tamra Judge about the problems in her marriage and the fact that her husband had even gone so far as to send her an email suggesting that he move out of their family home for a bit.
In her latest Bravo blog, Shannon opens up about her realization that she came to about her marriage and the consequences of confiding in a housewife.
In her latest Bravo blog she dishes on the other ladies, her love of shooting her family Christmas card and covers her chin and nose job, which we were told about on Monday's episode — complete with a before and after!
Whether it is over a chair, or a stick up someone's rear, the girls from the Real Housewives of Orange County just can't seem to all get along this season. Leave it to Tamra Barney to tell it like it is, even if she is in the middle of all the fighting, which is exactly what she does in her latest Bravo blog.
Here is where we are at. Vicki Gunvalson is being her usual, rude, obnoxious self to the new girl, Lizzie. And Heather Dubrow is looking down on the other new girl, Shannon Beador for some reason. (Btw — this is not a good look for Heather. I have always liked her, but this year she is kind of being a stuck-up bully to Shannon.)
The girls gathered for a hoedown at the Dubrow Ranch — aka where Heather is building her new mansion — and that is where all the girls decided to air their grievances.
Tamra Judge — formerly Barney — has never been one to shy away from the spotlight. Whether it is the status of her up-and-down relationship with bestie Vicki Gunvalson (above on their way to Hawaii), opening her new gym, C.U.T. Fitness, or her recent custody issues with her ex-husband, Tamra has always been an open book.
"Fancy Pants" seems to be stepping on some toes this season on the Real Housewives of Orange County, but our girl Heather Dubrow will just let all the drama pass on by while she drinks her "champs" and continues to tell the girls exactly what she thinks.
After the drama unfolded last night — from Hawaii to a dinner party back in the OC — Heather took to her Bravo blog to tell her readers what is really going down.
