Vicki Gunvalson

Shannon wonders about Peggy's cancer

Even though Shannon Beador isn’t holding up that center orange in the Real Housewives of Orange County introduction, she really should be at this point. There is always something going on with Shannon. She is going through it this season – from the weight gain, to the marital strife, to her feuds with the other ladies, she has a lot to address week after week.

Shannon has issues with Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd (still) and she’s even getting into it with Lydia McLaughlin and Peggy Sulahian who she did not know before this season. Sure, she got along with Kelly for one episode, but that was short-lived… as expected.

After weeks of stirring the pot, Lydia McLaughlin has taken a step back during the past couple episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County. Instead, Meghan King Edmonds stepped up to the plate, resurrecting old arguments and relaying information to Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge.

And it all came to head with an argument between Meghan and Kelly Dodd at drag queen bingo. Lydia was visibly uncomfortable at the event and that was before all the arguing went down. It was her first time around drag queens and there is no doubt that she will be asked about her discomfort at the reunion. When the arguing began, Lydia couldn’t take it anymore, even though she has been on this show before. Shouldn’t she know that there is always an argument at every group gathering? Apparently not.

Usually the mention of a Real Housewives vacation incites thoughts of grown women fighting over which room they get to sleep in at a mansion, explosive arguments at group dinners, or even a wild turn up. In all honesty, these trips seem more exhausting than relaxing, so it is no surprise that the Housewives seem to be a million times more relaxed when they take vacations in their real lives away from the cast.

Most of the Real Housewives escaped from real life to enjoy the long Labor Day Weekend with their friends and families.

Kelly feuds With Meghan

On last night’s Real Houseiwves Of Orange County we were all shocked when Kelly Dodd flipped her gender-bending shit and called Meghan Edmonds a bad mom because of her shit-stirring. I mean, talk dirty to me indeed, right?!

This is frustrating because Kelly is in the right about Meghan’s behavior but, as always, Kelly’s delivery and her viciousness get the better of her!

The whole thing started off so promisingly – in a baby store. Amid queries about sleigh cribs or modern cages, Kelly joked with Meghan that perhaps she’s “a lesbo” after a drunken kiss with Shannon Beador. Kelly and Meghan guffaw like Kelly ‘s kiss with Shannon is so trendy and cool, instead of waving from the caboose on Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl” train. More prescient is how quickly Kelly and Shannon moved from mortal enemies to K-I-S-S-ING. First comes hate, then comes love, then comes Meghan in the middle!

As much as I love Real Housewives of Orange County, Season 12 is definitely “off” so far. It is just such a fragmented show with most of the women refusing to film together and there are no real story lines so far. Other than Shannon Beador throwing that plate full of food at Kelly Dodd, it’s been a pretty boring season.

Hopefully that changes, but as of now, the show is in the same place it has been for the past two seasons with Tamra Judge and Shannon refusing to associate with Vicki Gunvalson. The battle lines have been drawn with Vicki and Kelly on one side and Tamra and Shannon on the other.

The Real Housewives of Orange County - Season 12

The current Real Housewives of Orange County season feels like several different shows rolled into one. There’s a major divide in the cast with a lot of the women refusing to film with each other and when they do they don’t even acknowledge each other if they’re in the same room. Even so, the ladies from the cast all came together to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Yes, that’s right. All seven women in the cast actually collaborated on a project together. There’s no word on whose idea it was or how it all came to fruition, but Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Meghan Edmonds, Lydia McLaughlin, and Peggy Sulahian all filmed a video asking their fans and followers to donate to the American Red Cross.

Vicki Gunvalson son in law Ryan Culberson Marine Corps

Even though Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter Briana Culberson has become an honorary cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County at this point, the fans haven’t seen too much of her husband Ryan Culberson because he has been away with the Marine Corps. Now he is back and ready for some time with the fam.

After a tough start with Briana and Ryan getting married out of nowhere, Vicki getting upset that the family temporarily left Orange County for Oklahoma, and that random disagreement with Lydia McLaughlin’s mom, Vicki has grown to love her son-in-law and she seems to pretty pumped that he is back.
