We’re just days away from the new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County! Last night Housewives past and present gathered together to celebrate the premiere and also the 10 year anniversary of the show!
So here’s a run-down of the behind-the-scenes reveals:
1. The producers lie to everyone. Case in point: Alexis Bellino. Alexis insists she quit;Heather Dubrow and Tamra Judge insist she was fired. At the CUT Fitness party, the opening party for season 8, after Alexis flees following the onslaught from the ladies, she is overheard telling the producers, “This is why I didn’t want to come back!” The producers admitted they worked behind the scenes to convince Alexis to return – including that Vicki Gunvalson would befriend her, and by hiring Lydia McLaughlin.
Everyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County knows how much Vicki Gunvalson loves working and talking about her businesses and subsequent wealth. Vicki is the epitome of work hard, play hard. Whenever she isn’t turning up, she is making money.
Vicki hasn’t met a business deal that she hasn’t liked. So it’s not shocking that she has something new in the works. But what does Vicki have going on this time?
Steve, a would-be politician is currently running for Anaheim City Council under the platform that his past law enforcement experience will protect the city’s future, but Steve’s own past as an alleged dirty cop may come back to haunt him!
Tamra has been training for months by lifting weights, doing a ton of cardio at CUT Fitness, and eating super clean – then she grabbed her glamsquad and showed off her muscles in an itty-bitty sequined bikini. #AbsForJesus.
Below are photos from Tamra’s fitness competition and also the RHOC finale party.
Let’s take a peek at how some of your favorite reality TV stars spent Memorial Day weekend.
Above: Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice shared, “Down the shore with my baby girl Gabriella.” On Facebook, she added, “We had a terrific weekend, we spent time on the beach, supporting Gabriella at her soccer tournament, cooking great food, & remembering what the Memorial Day holiday is all about. Hope you all had a blessed holiday weekend too.”
Our favorite reality stars, like Shannon Beador, Chelsea Houska, and Kandi Burruss, love to show off their adorable kids and family photos on social media. It is tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the sweetest pics from the past few weeks.
I love Heather Dubrow, but listening to her talk about building her house during the last season of Real Housewives of Orange County got boring pretty quickly. Part of that is because I know I will never live in a mansion like that so I am just pretty jealous. And also it is just not at all interesting. The only time I want to hear about custom cabinets is if Heather is having a screaming match with a contractor. Other than that, I don’t think it makes great TV.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way. And with that said, I have some pretty sad news. This house is still not finished. And the super teaser for RHOC’s eleventh season just came out so that indicates to me that a majority (if not all) of the season has been filmed. This makes me think that Heather will be talking about the construction of this house for two seasons in a row. Ugh.
