Even though we are only a few episodes into this Real Housewives of Orange Countyseason, it is still hard to figure out Peggy Sulahian. None of her metaphors or jokes make any sense. Is she trying to be funny or does she just actually not know what’s going on?
As of now, it’s hard to tell, but one person who does not seem to be a fan of Peggy’s is Kelly Dodd. Sure, that hasn’t really come across in the episodes we’ve seen so far, but Kelly definitely makes it clear that she is not too fond of the new girl these days.
Whether you loved her or hated her, Jacqueline Laurita was the main source of drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey last year. Without her antics, there would have been nothing to tweet about and nothing for the ladies to argue about at the reunion. Sure, it was tough to watch most of the time, but she at least gave the fans something to have an opinion about… even if your opinion wasn’t positive.
Nevertheless, even the most die hard fans of the show have to admit that it was in a real rut last season so it will be interesting to see how things play out now that Jacqueline is out of the picture.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County, enemy factions were forced to come face-to-face for the second coming, actually THIRD coming, of Jim Edmond‘s reproductive prowess. By that I mean that Meghan Edmonds hosted a Sip and See, and decided the theme would be World War III by Bravo: Bitter-er, Blonder, Boozier.
Vicki Gunvalsonlives in a world in which no one but her equally delusional imaginary friend exists. Vicki’s slip was showing and it certainly was not virginal white as she menacingly promised to make Tamra Judge and Shannon suffer for turning their backs on her, like this is that 90’s Tori Spelling Lifetime movie A Friend To Die For where the unpopular girl takes revenge on the bully cheerleaders. Ugh – if Shannon and Tamra are your aspirational friends, oh dear than you, Vicki, are more screwed up than Brooks led us to believe you were!
Needless to say, it’s clear that Meghan had no idea what she was getting herself into when she introduced Kelly to reality TV. And now Kelly has gone from starting shit with Meghan’s friends, to coming at Meghan herself. And aside from the Kelly drama, Meghan isn’t off to a great start with the new girl Peggy Sulahian.
Lydia McLaughlin has great hair. That’s all I’ve got. (Kidding! But, I was surprised to hear she’d be back this season, given her mildly “blah” presence last time around). Since her return to The Real Housewives Of Orange County, Lydia has been trying hard to situate herself in the middle of the drama, rather than on its perimeters. Great move to keep that orange, but not so wise in terms of holding on to one’s sanity.
It was even weirder because Vicki Gunvalson didn’t even seem to be that offended by Meghan’s words. Sure, she was kind of wound up, but Vicki is always wound up. Surprisingly enough, it seemed like they were just having a (relatively) mature discussion with a difference of opinion and they were both handling it pretty well… then Peggy stepped in and grabbed Meghan’s mouth.
First, Peggy expresses disappointment that Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador refused to attend her event out of sheer pettiness. Peggy also regrets being so curt with Shannon on the phone: “I’m glad that the girls were able to make it to our Lamborghini event, although sad that Tamra and Shannon weren’t able to attend. Upon calling Shannon to invite her to the event I hadn’t realized how abruptly I cut her off. The reason why I tried to keep the conversation short was because I didn’t want her to relive those dark moments. She did not owe me any explanation as to why she wasn’t able to attend.”
