It would be nice to say that Season 13 of Real Housewives of Orange County started out with a bang, but that sadly is not what happened. At all. After a dismally boring Season 12, the Season 13 premiere was just OK. Pretty much nothing happened, but let’s hope that the ladies are just warming up.
Last night brought lots of changes for the Real Housewives Of Orange County. Most importantly they’re all getting along! In a scary, even realistic kind of way. Which means something horrible is probably going to happen that sucks the whole of the Pacific Ocean into Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador‘s bodies so they can turn them into an epic tidal wave of hysterical tears. Am I excited about this prospect… I mean, yes and no.
Speaking of Shannon she has downsized in the divorce. Dreaded words there kids! So if you see a woman living under the freeway in a cardboard box featuring rococo mahogany legs, you will know it is Shannon! Terribly tragic.
Tonight we welcome Real Housewives Of Orange County back into our collective consciousness. I may be the lone one, but I’m excited! Before moving into new dramas let’s recap what happened last season!
Lydia McLaughlin returned
to use free advertising for the launch of her new magazine after a long hiatus to contemplating what Alexis Jesus would do as a Real Housewife, and Vicki remained – and remained on the outs with everyone. Heather Dubrow decided she didn’t want to expose her marriage to anymore speculative gossip and quit, so instead enter: Peggy Sulahian. Someone in casting was on Vicki’s Vodka that day!
Even though Fourth of July was on a Wednesday this year, plenty of reality TV stars still managed to celebrate the party in the middle of the week. Some of them got away to celebrate and others just kicked it in their own backyard with their families.
Vicki Gunvalson hung out with her man Steve Lodge in Huntington Beach, California while her daughter Briana Culberson, son-in-law Ryan Culberson, and grandsons hung out with her ex-husband Donn Gunvalson in North Carolina.
Former Atlanta Housewife Phaedra Parks took her two sons Ayden and Dylan to an Atlanta Braves game- all decked out in red, white, and blue in honor of the holiday.
After two (boring) seasons of beefing on Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson are finally friends again. Now we can all hope that means we will be blessed with an interesting Season 13.
Nevertheless, it took more than that Season 12 reunion hug to mend their strained relationship. Tamra revealed that Vicki had to sit down with her husband Eddie Judge to talk out their differences. Vick spread rumors that Eddie was “secretly gay” and invited former Orange County Housewives to appear on the show solely to perpetuate that story.
You know what they say, “the costars that take photos together stay together.” Well, no one actually says that, but it does make some sense. A lot of your favorite reality TV stars spent some quality time with their castmates (and their fellow network celebs) this week. And of course, they documented it all on Instagram.
Shep Rose shared a photo of himself with Austen Kroll at the Southern Charm reunion taping. New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer met up with Shep while he was in her city to film the Southern Charm reunion.
After a painfully boring 12th season, the Real Housewives of Orange County really owes the fandom. The trailer for Season 13 was just released and it looks promising.
After two seasons of loyal friendship, Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson are at odds after Vicki went on a double date with her boyfriend Steve Lodge, Kelly’s ex Michael Dodd, and one of Vicki’s friends. Kelly and Michael just got divorced. Vicki is the one who set up Michael with her friend.Of course, Kelly would be upset. Plus Vicki did this during filming. It just screams like a ploy for a story line, if you ask me.
Real Housewives Of Orange County will return on July 16 and bring with it tons of changes – including two new Housewives: Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter. (I will never remember how to spell that!)
We already knew that Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge were coming back, along with Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador. Both newly single Kelly and Shannon have united to navigate the dating scene and support each other through divorce and single motherhood.
