Peggy Sulahian is just kind of just the worst, isn’t she? Maybe she’s a nice person, and she seemed OK at her Armenian anniversary party, but as soon as you take the Diko away from Peggy she turns into a judgmental, overbearing, clueless buzzkill intent to smother the fun out of any party with her nonsensical ramblings. Even a Viking send-off. I don’t want to be mean, but perhaps Bravo needs to issue ‘Funness’ qualifying exams.
There were men in fair isle sweaters serenading the ladies, then fighting over the amorphous blondes (Shannon Beador is convinced it’s her because Vikings “like a girl with a lil meat on her bones,” but would Shannon really touch whale blubber? I feel like it’s not very holistic…). But anyway, there were men doing all this for all of them, and in the middle of it all Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson were hugging and kissing like it was 2010, and Vicki even apologized to Shannon – more on that in a bit – then in walked Peggy, wearing a blood red caftan, and out for blood! She ruined the whole thing. Again.
This Real Housewives of Orange County season got blown out of the water by the Dallas Housewives which airs right after it on Monday nights. At this point, no one would be shocked if Bravo switched things up and Dallas was the lead-in show for Orange County instead. That’s how abysmal and boring this season is. Even so, the drama picked up in Iceland.
Plus Vicki Gunvalson was actually getting along with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador (for the most part) on the trip. Pigs must have been flying in Iceland. No one saw this one coming. Plus it gave all of us hope for the rest of this season and even next season. Don’t hold on to that thought though. Tamra is very adamant that the peace we witnessed in Iceland remained in Iceland.
Shhh… don’t tell the various stars of reality TV but Halloween is all about the kids in their costumes! Thankfully reality stars and their over-sharing on social media means plenty of adorable photos of their kiddos trick or treating and we get to see all their fun costumes.
Above Kandi Burruss shared, “The things you do for family…. #TrickOrTreat @acewellstucker@rileyburruss & @todd167” My favorite costume: Vicki Gunvalson dressed as a pug to take her grandsons trick or treating. Just wait… it’s amazing!
This week’s Real Housewives Of Orange County injected some much-needed (albeit insane) energy into a season that’s limped along at a snail’s pace. Kelly Dodd shares her thoughts on Vicki Gunvalson’s medical emergency, the ladies’ all-night argument in Shannon Beador’s hotel room, and why Peggy Sulahian finally pushed her over the edge. Kelly jokes, “The sun never sets in Iceland, and neither do we! If it seems like the longest day ever, it was. That’s what being in Iceland is like!”
When Vicki started experiencing symptoms of what she thought was a heart attack, Kelly says she knew it was probably just anxiety. She explains, “I knew right away that Vicki was having an anxiety attack. She was exhausted, and I think she was scared to go to dinner, because sometimes going to those dinners can be like entering the lion’s den. I like Peggy. I think she’s a good person, and I know that her intentions are good, but she really gets on my nerves. I have a ‘hot’ button, and that button gets pushed when somebody tries to tell me what to do. That is what Peggy does to me over, and over, and over again. I finally lost my patience with her.”
Poor Vicki her love tank’s connected to her heart valve, her heart valve’s connected to that part of her brain that says ‘PAY ATTENTION TO ME! ME! ME! ME!” So she was vomiting and having heart palpitations while Peggy Sulahian and Kelly Dodd fought over who was better at caring for Vicki’s sputtering love tank.
Who would have thought that Kelly Doddwould be the most reasonable and likable cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County(by far)!? She is the only one who has been consistently enjoyable to watch and she usually has some insightful commentary.
She stayed out of the fray during the group trip to Iceland during the last episode, but she had a lot to say about the boring excuses for story lines that we were subjected to “drama.”
In her blog for this week’s episode, Peggy describes the most frightening experience to date, and she’s not referring to Shannon’s bed head after a seventeen hour plane ride or even that fermented shark blob that had half her co-stars gagging up a lung. Before delving into the terrifying, Peggy focuses on the positive…and the obvious (read: traveling to Iceland from the OC, generally). She begins, “Our trip to Iceland began with a long plane ride. We were greeted with cold weather and in anticipation of Orange County girls being unprepared for the obvious, Lydia planned a shopping trip to head off any problems. Girls and shopping is a classic combination which can bring out the best in every situation. As such, Vicki and Tamra started to reconnect. You could see they had a bond. They understood each other and hopefully, things will get better.” Why yes, it is a long flight. And no, none of you packed appropriately.
