Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County was about starting over, with new friends, new introspection, new babies, and new directions for the marriage that cut out the cancerous tumor and got brand spankin’ new cells! David officially decided that he really, really re-loves Shannon Beador for real this time and planned a surprise re-wedding. It was all very nice and lovely.
The marital travails of Shannon and Daviddo beg the question: Can one completely ignore the past and acquire a new beginning? Is it possible to start afresh with brand new red bottoms, unsullied from scuffing along sidewalks trailing behind your husband’s secret life? Like a facelift, can all the old sagging skin of our former misery be lifted up into a permanent smile; a renewed face to face a renewed future?
Ever since Kelly started popping off against the rest of the cast, all of the women have been distracted from hating on Vicki. This is exactly what the OG of the OC needed. The one thing that I need is for these women to stop talking about the drama at the ’70s party between Kelly and Shannon Beador. It has been dragged out for way too many episodes at this point. Nevertheless, Vicki has finally come to a conclusion about the mess that went down.
The addition of Kelly Dodd to Real Housewives of Orange County is the best thing to happen to Vicki Gunvalson. Now that Kelly is constantly stirring shit up, the women are distracted from holding a grudge against Vicki since they are so busy hating on Kelly instead. Kelly has taken it upon herself to be Vicki’s defender, and between supporting Vicki and getting into her own drama, she screams a lot.
Anyone who watched the last RHOC episode knows that Kelly made Heather Dubrow extremely uncomfortable since she tried to kick Kelly out of a party that was supposed to be all about Meghan Edmonds. When that didn’t work, Heather kicked herself out and called her husband crying. Personally, I didn’t get why Heather was crying, but there are plenty of other viewers who took greater issue with the scene. A lot of people came at Heather for ‘pretending to cry’ and she has been adamantly defending herself.
So, that new girl, huh? Kelly Dodd has been making quite the splash since showing up on this season of Real Housewives of Orange County. Kelly immediately ruffled the feathers of the majority of the women by befriending and defending the exiled Vicki Gunvalson. Of course, I think we’ve all learned to steer clear of Shannon Beador’s bad side as well. Throw in Tamra Judge stirring the already drama-filled pot, and we’ve got a recipe for disaster that just keeps cooking week after week.
After the most recent shenanigans (I cringed watching, to be honest), Kelly is mortified by her behavior, “In case you are wondering, Jolie did not and will not ever watch last night’s episode. My believing that Shannon set me up and my response to Nina and Jaci’s ‘neutrocious’ (yes, I said that) lies will be revisited at the reunion, so Jolie probably will not be watching that either.”
In my humble opinion, Meghan Edmonds is way too nice and normal for the insane antics on Real Housewives of Orange County. And I don’t get why she would want to be on this show, especially since these women are all about hogging the spotlight.
The one time when the show should have been about Meghan, it was about everyone else. As per usual, Kelly Dodd went on a rampage against her fellow cast members and everyone forgot they were at a party to celebrate Meghan’s impending pregnancy. I couldn’t imagine that Meghan was at all happy with the shit show that went down and she revealed that I was right.
Well hot damn was that an exciting episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County! Satan is confusing, and so too is Kelly Dodd. My head is still spinning from all the crazy, but I think it may be one of my favorite episodes ever. SO much happened that it was like watching Real Housewives as guest-directed by Quentin Tarantino.
One thing we have definitely learned in our many years observing Housewives in their native environments is that slightly unhinged women do not mix with tables and prostitution whores. Also “mother” and “not a prostitute” are mutually exclusive. No, Kelly didn’t flip a table, but she did flip an entire coven of Housewives and Housewives associates on their heads with expletive-laden, name calling the likes of which Heather Dubrow(who was ironically wearing leopard in a subtle homage to Real Housewives Of New Jersey, I imagine (intentional or ironic!?)) has never heard!
