Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County everybody was having a meltdown. I swear Andy Cohen needs to have staff psychiatrists at these Housewives shoots!
We begin at Lizzie Rovsek‘s dinner party on the balcony of bitchery. Shannon Beador is over-whipped into a frenzy and Tamra Judge is making things worse by grabbing at her face and yelling under the guise of calming her down. Shannon became more agitated thinking Tamra’s bad Botox was contagious. “I was trying to restrain her,” huffs Tamra.
Finally David helps Shannon into her coat to escort her out of the party. I’m pretty sure he was planning to drive her to Cedars Mt. Sinai for the Britney Spears suite. Vicki Gunvalson runs outside to confront Shannon and it seemed genuine. She encouraged Shannon to just go home and not deal with this anymore today.
This season the feud that will not end, all has to do with Tamra lying to Shannon Beador about an email. If you need a refresher, Shannon was opening up to Tamra about the troubles in her marriage. At that exact moment, her husband texted her and wanted to know why Heather Dubrow was talking about his marriage troubles at a restaurant.
Shannon asked Tamra if she had told Heather about her marriage, and in a very cringe-worthy moment, flat out lied to Shannon’s face. Leading Shannon to confront Heather about it and Heather to ‘kick’ Shannon out of her house. Whew! I think brings everyone up to speed.
Lizzie asked her advice on Twitter the night before, tweeting, “Off to LaLaLand to tape the RHOC reunion tomorrow. Any good advice for my first reunion? Besides #TRUTH??” After filming, Lizzie declared, “I told the truth and was true to myself.” I honestly believe her!
Nothing about this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County shocked me. Until everyone opens their eyes and figures out that Tamra Barney is to blame for every single (ok, maybe not every single one, but pretty darn close) relationship problem in Orange County, it will be more of the same. Tamra lies, drama ensues, Tamra denies, rinse and repeat.
The newcomers, Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek, have Tamra‘s lying pot stirring ways figured out, but Heather Dubrow is forever stuck in her own self-righteous fantasy world. Heather’s too busy blowing everything out of proportion and bellyaching about Shannon “yelling” at her to see what Tamra has done. Le sigh.
In her blog, Shannon bemoaned, “It is nice to see Vicki have compassion for me. What is disturbing is Tamra not taking responsibility for starting all of this nonsense between Heather and I.” I, for one, am extremely disappointed that Vicki Gunvalson failed to call out the liarface this week. Vicki knew Tamra was lying – and she kept mum! Grrr!
Lizzie Rovsek tried to have an elegant dinner party for her classy TV friends, except she didn’t have any classy TV friends to invite so she just stuck with her co-stars. Lizzie decorated her parent’s beach house with a beautiful table setting and hired fire dancers to perform. Her husband Christian made a lovely toast, the food looked delicious, and the drinks stiff. But it was the company… oh it’s that bad company that gets you in trouble every time!
Before we get to another one of Bravo’s dinner parties from hell, lets backtrack. A Few Days Before…
Tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange Countywas another dinner party from hell and Tamra Judge headed off to NYC to defend herself and the events of the evening on Watch What Happens Live. The reality star swears she didn’t do anything wrong as she reacted to questions from Andy and the show’s fans.
Andy jumps right in to share with Tamra the fans’ reactions toward her on Twitter tonight after the episode. “Tamra, you’re getting roasted on Twitter.” She retorts, “Good, I’m doing my job then.” When Andy asks if she’s been reading them she says “No, I don’t really get into the whole Twitter..” Andy laughs, not buying it.
Andy mentions that Vicki Gunvalson is a whole a new person this season, sitting by and not jumping into the drama. Tamra throws shade with a “no comment” face and eye roll.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star had planned to spend time with Briana this summer as Briana prepared for her the birth of her second son, but baby had other plans! Vicki shared over the weekend that the baby was going to be early, so she had to rush off to be with her family. She wrote on Friday, “Just got to LAX to catch a 6am flight to OKC. Our new baby decided to come a early. Can’t get there quick enough! Pray for healthy baby and momma. 4thofJulybaby.”
After spending zillions on a total facelift for a house that was supposed to represent the new Vicki Gunvalson, she’s selling!
On this season’s Real Housewives of Orange County Vicki has admitted she’s lonely in the massive 5,400 square-foot enclave now that daughter Briana and her family have moved out. Since she’s a single-ish gal again Vicki has decided to list her home for $2.899 million!
Sitting on 1 acre of land in the exclusive Coto De Caza community, Vicki’s newly renovated home boasts a grotto pool with outdoor kitchen in the backyard, 5 bedrooms – including a master retreat, 6 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, both a formal and informal living room, and charming “California Mediterranean” features.
