This week on Real Housewives of Orange County, the ladies, plus Tamra, kicked off their big trip to Bali. Call me crazy, but if I’m going to invest 25 hours of my time to travel somewhere, it wouldn’t be with people I don’t get along with, people I merely tolerate, and/or people I flat out do not like. Gotta love Bravo.
Shannon Beador blogged her take on the first full day in Bali. She, too, can’t believe she traveled 25 hours to get there, but she was genuinely excited about the trip. “I never thought I would ever travel 25 hours to get to any destination,” she shared. “Life is full of surprises… welcome to Bali!”
Vicki Gunvalson is all about the work, work, work! but the hard work is paying off!
Vicki just released a new book ‘Let’s Talk Money‘ which is a guide to women’s financial health and it’s already climbed to the top of the Amazon charts!
Woo Hoo!!! We just hit #1 on Amazon!! SUPER thanks to all of our friends and supporters for helping us make this happen. We’re also #1 on “hot new releases” and #1 on “most wished for” in our categories. I’m truly overjoyed and this wouldn’t have been possible without your support and the great team we have, who tirelessly helped push this book to the top. #WooHoo,” Vickigushed on Facebook.
Whenever the Real Housewives of Orange County travel it’s an elephantine-sized disaster. And this time they came into contact with actual elephants. I’m pretty sure subjecting an elephant to Vicki Gunvalson‘s screaming constitutes animal abuse. Last night they all traveled to Bali for some spiritual awakening, reincarnated relationships, and bonding – at least that was on the trip prospectus.
Bali is being terrorized by California ladies with 25 pieces of designer baggage and enough anxiety drugs (they’re holistic!!) to tranquilize an elephant. The real purpose of this trip is for us to get different scenery while they haggle and rehash over the same dang arguments. Vicki has a conniption fit because she thinks all the calming auras in Indonesia will interfere with the WiFi signal so she won’t be able to WORK! WORK! WORK! More time to FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! (or in Vicki’s case get motion sickness and puke in Tamra Judge‘s lap in the back of a van).
After 30 hours on a plane everyone, including that silent one Danielle Gregorio, arrives. She is now called “Dumb” as in 1/2 of the Vicki-dubbed Dumb & Dumber. She was wearing a molting Muppet costume on the plane. I seriously wonder what happened with this one. Why is she the RHOC ghost? I feel like a Sc0oby Doo montage starring Shannon Beador‘s mystery door needs to breakout!
Heather Dubrow thinks she’s perfect. Imagine her surprise when others don’t agree with her self-assessment. In this case one of her main detractors is friend Vicki Gunvalson and Heather is shocked and appalled that Vicki is questioning her behavior this season.
“I love Vicki and we have always had a very good relationship. However, I’m pretty tired of the nasty interview bites thrown in my direction,” Heather complains.
One of the Real Housewives of Orange County star’s main complaints is that Vicki has taken new friend Shannon Beador‘s side after Heather failed to display any sympathy for Shannon’s situation. Furthermore, even if Heather has behaved appallingly, Vicki is her friend first right. And, lest we forget: Heather got yelled at by Shannon! Therefore all of the misdeeds this season are not at all her fault. I mean she’s right – most of them are Tamra Judge‘s fault!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
WhooHoo!!! Vicki Gunvalson has written another book, or co-written, or contributed. Not sure which, but regardless, there is a new book out with Vicki’s picture on the cover. The Real Housewives of Orange County star seems to have kept this book under wraps, or perhaps I missed the press release, but when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live! Monday night, she was definitely there to promote her second book.
Let’s Talk Money: Women’s Guide to a Lifetime of Wealthwas co-written with best-selling author, Dennis M. Postima and, according to Amazon, the book is “Filled with conservative, straight-forward information and ideas, “Let’s Talk Money” allows women the opportunity to beat the odds and create a retirement income that lasts—for life”.
As you know, several Bravo stars turned up in Las Vegas two weekends ago. Jill popped up, of course, though she did not appear to be directly involved with the events. Gotta love her! This past weekend, Jill, Ramona Singer, and Betsey Johnson posed for photos at the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation fundraiser A Hamptons Happening. Check out pictures from Vegas and A Hamptons Happening below. It’s like a fun game of Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego Jill Zarin?!
Things begin with Tamra Barney telling Vicki Gunvalson about Ryan’s surprise engagement. Vicki understands given that Briana surprised eloped last season. If your children are always hiding something from you that’s probably a sign that they think you’re crazy.
However, quickly talk turns to TheShannon BeadorDilemna. Vicki is straight to the point with Tamra that she started causing all this drama and now is stepping back like ‘Don’t look at me! I didn’t do it!’ – and that Heather Dubrow is also being an instigator. Vicki thinks Heather needs to be knocked down a a notch or two to understand empathy. I am loving this equanimous Vicki. More of this please! Less of that rat’s nest on her head that she calls hair, however!
