Vicki Gunvalson

peggy-sulahian

It would not be at all shocking if Peggy Sulahian wasn’t asked to return to Real Housewives of Orange County next season. She didn’t know any of the other cast members prior to joining the show. She doesn’t seem to get understand any English idiom, even though she used the phrase “out of left field” herself before saying that she didn’t know what it meant. I could go on and on, but it’s basically a total misfire.

Sure, Peggy seems like a nice enough person, but she just doesn’t seem to be cut out for the Housewives drama. Someone accused her of getting in “the middle” of an argument between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge and she corrected them in the most literal way possible: by saying that she was standing on the side. This woman just doesn’t get it. She seems relatively harmless and honestly seeing her on Watch What Happens Live made me want to give her a hug more than anything just because she is in way over her head.

Real Housewives Of Orange County Balls Voyage

Here’s a mystery for you: why, in the middle of all the Real Housewives Of Orange County‘s scenes about scheming and ball removal was there a lovely bucolic montage of the ladies celebrating Easter? Is it because, as Tamra Judge, waxed insanely, they’re all “sisters in Christ.” Yeah, keep telling yourself that, sister.

Anyway, Lydia McLaughlin owns a boat and therefore she will throw a party for her husband’s balls on said boat. Cause “balls voyage” – get it?! Where in sam hell did little miss prissy bible arise at that one?

Before getting on the official party boat, Lydia and Doug, all decked out in their finery, take a cruise around the harbor with a hot skipper. Unlike Gilligan’s Island no one got lost on a three-hour tour, but if they had, they could’ve build a life raft out of Tamra’s earrings and used Meghan Edmonds‘ earrings to phone home!

Vicki Hears a Rumor about Tamra

She may not have been around for any scenes on this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, but Vicki Gunvalson has plenty to say about her co-stars in her latest blog.

Vicki calls her co-stars childish for ripping on her diagnosis of influenza B. She shares, “I spent the week in bed, with Steve playing nurse. When I went to urgent care, the doctor diagnosed me with influenza B. I didn’t know there were different strains of influenza, it was something new to me.” She slams, “For those ladies to who mocked me, make fun of me and question if it was an A, B, or C was juvenile. They acted like a bunch of children in a school cafeteria, I was embarrassed for them.”

Lydia McLaughlin

Knowing that Lydia McLaughlin was going to be one of the guests on Watch What Happens Live, I was expecting a soft interview with lots of shameless plugs for her magazine. Surprisingly enough, only the latter was true. Fans who called in and tweeted questions for the Real Housewives of Orange County star really went in with the questions.

Lydia was almost as flustered as Shannon Beador was at Ava’s birthday party when Lydia kept mentioning Vicki Gunvalson. Lydia was almost as thrown off as Shannon and Tamra Judge were after Kelly Dodd “unexpectedly” showed up to dinner when Lydia actually invited her. I’m trying (and failed) to think of some way to incorporate the words “pot stirrer” into that old “pot meet kettle” expression, but if you’ve been watching RHOC, then you probably get what I’m going for: viewers were stirring shit up with someone who has been accused of stirring shit up.

Real Housewives of Orange County Recap

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County seemed to have a lot going on. Tucked under the little flaps of skin were a million hidden clues, and insinuations, and tepidly it seemed like some pretty interesting shifts were taking place.

For instance, suddenly Tamra Judge is annoyed with Shannon Beador. I say suddenly, but really it’s just that she’s suddenly like perma-annoyed. I get it, obviously – Shannon is a stage five clinger who’s hot glue-gunned to your ass like a sequined bikini in a fitness competition. Anyway, it’s obvious that Tamra is up to something big and she’s not quite aligning herself to anyone, is she? After complaining about Peggy Sulahian, she’s suddenly liking her?! “Peggy’s got balls,” Tamra tells us, smirking.

Meghan Edmonds

The Real Housewives of Orange County fans will always appreciate Meghan Edmonds for investigating Brooks Ayers during her first year on the show, but she is just not delivering anything of that caliber this season. It just doesn’t make the most sense for her to be on this show. She didn’t even interact with any other cast members for the first three episodes of this season. She’s reaching for a story line by beefing with Kelly Dodd over a text message conversation (which she started) that went down months before this season started filming.

She went behind Kelly’s back to tell Shannon Beador that Kelly believed their hang out was being secretly recorded. She called up Shannon and Tamra Judge immediately to relay information after she had lunch with Vicki Gunvalson. Other than Peggy Sulahian rudely grabbing Meghan’s lips and pressing them shut, Meghan doesn’t have a legitimate story line so far…. other than stirring the pot. In terms of real life, this is probably a great thing. She’s not undergoing surgery, suffering to shed weight, or getting plates thrown at her. She is doing alright in comparison to many other people in this cast, but as far as the show goes: her story line is lacking.

rhoc-peggy-bear-min

As of now, Peggy Sulahian has contributed two things to Real Housewives of Orange County: her confusion about idioms and pinching Meghan Edmonds’ lips shut. Not only that, but the rest of the cast is still so caught up in drama from previous seasons that no one even found Peggy grabbing Meghan’s mouth- the one outrageous thing Peggy has done so far- to be remotely offensive .

Two episodes ago, Peggy’s major story line was a drive to mail a letter…. instead of just walking down the driveway to her own mailbox. This week, she sat on the side while the rest of the ladies went at it during Kelly Dodd’s party before she tried to shade Shannon Beador by saying she is “something else.” Of course that got Shannon a little bit riled up, but she ended up getting into a screaming match with Lydia McLaughlin…. again.

The only thing funnier than a group of women wearing hashtag team t-shirts is Vicki Gunvalson still trying to maintain her innocence – in the cancer lies, the Eddie Judge lies, the general lies of a lying liar…you name it! While she may be the OG of the OC, this Real Housewives of Orange County star apparently has only one defense in her arsenal: Deny, deny, deny. Hey – it’s worked for her with Andy Cohen so far! And in all fairness, it’s worked equally well for so-called arch nemesis Tamra Judge too.

Vicki begins this week’s blog by reflecting on the “high emotions” she experiences every time Tamra someone accuses her of “blatant lies and fabricated truths.” She’d apparently like to act more like Peggy Sulahian and Lydia McLaughlin, who “stay calm when it came to Shannon [Beador] and the inter-workings of these group of women. I need to learn from them.”
