Remember that time the ladies of the OC went on vacation together and it actually ended on a positive? Of course you do…it was this week’s installment! Sure there was drama when the Real Housewives of Orange County invaded Mo’orea, but it didn’t end with a screeching Tamra Judge promising never to return. Hasty words, I guess. Despite the constant tension between Shannon Beador and Meghan Edmonds (or Meghan KING Edmonds, as Shannon calls her…like she’s disciplining a child who has done something bad enough to warrant the dreaded three names), their last supper ended with laughter instead of screaming.
The women had some fun along the way, as well, with Heather Dubrow leading the charge to ignore comfort zones and keep things light. Lizzie Rovsek hasn’t quite recovered from the insanity of last year’s girls’ trip, so she tried to stay in the background and out of the squabbles. She keeps a surprisingly level head when rehashing Sunday’s show.
Gushing about the trip, Meghan shares, “It made me smile to watch these last couple episodes of our trip because of how much fun we all had together. It was an exhausting girls’ trip, but I would go again in a heartbeat! …Especially since I have so much going on right now.”
Shannon Beador was enjoying the beaches of Mo’orea and its tasty minibar gummie treats until Tropical Storm Meghan Edmondsand her oversized headbands blew in. After this week’s Real Housewives of Orange Countyrounded out their final days in Tahiti, Shannon admits she was ready to get home. She discusses Meghan’s apology (spoiler alert: she’s not loving it!), her friendship with Vicki Gunvalson, and – of course – the state of her marriage to David.
After surviving her “fireball” whoop-it-up night with Vicki and Tamra Judge, Shannon says she wasn’t ready to spend a hungover day with the entire gang, “let alone swimming with fish in a claustrophobic headpiece from the 1960s!” She also expresses shock at hearing Meghan’s description of hubby Jim’s 2nd ex-wife. “I have not yet commented on anything that is going on in Meghan’s life when I am not present, but I was absolutely flabbergasted that she said Jim’s second ex-wife was a ‘very unhappy person’. As a stepmother and co-parent, I think that goes way below the belt. Not nice,” scolds Shannon.
As the last night of Mo’orea came to a close, Heather Dubrow found herself in the middle of a pot-stirring situation. She explains why she wasn’t “going after” Tamra Judge during dinner, why being friends with Jim Edmonds’ second ex-wife and current wife #3 Meghan Edmonds is A-okay, in her book. Plus, Heather hints at a “bizarre turn” of events to come on next week’s Real Housewives of Orange County.
After filling us in on her busy summer with the kids, Heather dives into this week’s episode. She admits, “Yes, Tamra and Vicki [Gunvalson] were VERY hungover, but we had plans and I wanted to get them moving! We were on vacation and there is time to nap later! I know in my interview I said they aren’t 18 anymore…I meant 21…I know what the legal drinking age is and I’m certainly not condoning underage drinking! Just a slip of the tongue!”
Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County the ladies played Bravo’s most popular game: She/said-She/Said. The winner was Meghan Edmonds, who claimed the ‘Pot Stirrer Meet Kettle’ award. Because honestly, accusing someone else of being a pot stirrer in defense of Tamra Judge is absolutely ludicrous beyond belief!
As is always the case on vacations Tamra and Vicki Gunvalson can’t keep it in their pants… their bodily functions that is. After a night of binge drinking Tamra, Vicki, and Shannon Beador are in no condition to go on an underwater excursion. As Tamra termed it she can’t stop s#*!ing herself. Can we get Tamra and Vicki some sort of potty training refresher course? Meanwhile not even the nebulizer can clear out Shannon’s brain.
Heather Dubrow, wearing DENIM CUTOFFS (it was like an alien sighting — but she looked great), barges in to try to rally them, but even her assurances that she had Depends and wipes in her Birkin couldn’t get Vicki and Shannon to come along. Tamra dragged herself aboard the bus and worked diligently not to poop her 1992 Hair Band video vixen hot pink one-piece during the boat trip.
Among tonight’s topics, Vicki talked about life since her mom passed away and addressed her criticism of Meghan King Edmonds, and Jeff shared his thoughts on being fired from Living Spaces and talked about his friendship with Shannon Beador.
When asked if she watched the episode in which she learned her mom passed away, Vicki shared, “Yes, I did. I blacked out there. It was part of my life, and I kind of felt like I’d see her come back through that episode, but I didn’t. It has been a really big void for our family. Briana was very close to my mom. It has just been really hard on all of us. It has been really, really hard… harder than I would have ever imagined it to be.”
Well, Lizzie Rosvek wasn’t pregnant (at least on the Tahiti trip) after all. Considering the build up in last week’s Real Housewives of Orange County blog, it feels like a bit of a let down! But Lizzie has more to reflect on than taking a Vicki Gunvalson-supplied EPT test, commenting this week on her business, her feelings about Mo’orea so far, and her take on Meghan Edmonds’ statements about mothering her step children.
Lizzie updates us on Sun Kitten, her swimwear line first: “I’m gearing up for a big week with Sun Kitten. We are shooting the 2016 campaign tomorrow in Newport Beach. I’m very excited about the new collection and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.” But let’s move on to Tahiti, shall we? Thankfully, Lizzie shares, “I finally received my luggage and it felt so good to put fresh clothes on after two days.”
“I have watched this episode a few times and laughed so hard all weekend!” begins Shannon. “I have to say that our second day in Mo’orea was one of the most fun ‘girl days’ I have ever had!!!” Although things didn’t start off so rosy, given that Shannon began the trip sick, and broke her nebulizer. “My nebulizer blew up and I had to rent a Tahitian one that I couldn’t figure out how to use! I had sinus surgery years ago and now the drainage goes to my lungs — I cough every day and it is a nightmare! I hate using a nebulizer!!!”
