Fact: The friendship between Real Housewives of Orange County'sGretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney deteriorated just as quickly as it was rekindled. I think we've all figured out that Tamra's loyalty (what little of it she may have) lies with Vicki Gunvalson. And lie they do, according to Gretchen! Truth: I love Reba McIntyre but I am not surprised that something called Malibu Country didn't last. It's lived longer in this feud than it ever could have on cable. Fact: Bravo really needs to put a length restriction on their blogs. Truth: I tried to just give y'all the highlights!
In her Bravo blog, Gretchen writes about the infamous Jay Photolou situation, "Fact: The man the women continue to bring up I took to court and won seven counts against. In order to find someone guilty of punitive damages the jury needs to find that person acted with fraud, malice, or intent. Furthermore the claims he tried to bring against me for defaming him, false light, and slander, the jury found in favor of me and not of him."
She continues, "Fact: Tamrasays in one breath at the reunion that she still doesn't know all the details of what really happened between me and this man but then five seconds later she is whipping out pictures and seems to think she knows exactly what happened between us. She can't even keep her stories straight. She continues to challenges Lauri [Peterson]'s accusations saying 'If she didn't see them in bed together then she really doesn't know what happened.'"
It appears that all isn't well in Vodkaville, and Real Housewives of Orange County'sVicki Gunvalson could be back on the receiving end of a law suit claiming fraud and breach of contract. The case, which was previously dismissed, is reportedly about to be re-filed by Vicki's former partner in Vodkas by Vicki, Robert Williamson, III. In it, major allegations are waged against the reality star and her off-again-on-again (off-again) beau Brooks Ayers.
Of course, it doesn't help matters that the relationship status between Vicki and Broke Brooks has gone from lukewarm to non-existent to down right contentious, at least those are the rumors! If this is the end of Vicki's vodkas, however are we going to get to taste Slade's bacon variety?
Alright let's dive into this whole Real Housewives of Orange County reunion thing! We've got Memory Lapse Monday happening here because Tamra Barney is confusing this season's storyline with one from two years ago. Did her shock therapy malfunction? Yeppers, Gretchen Rossi is back in the hotseat for cheating on her deceased fiancé Jeff with another man. Nevermind that NO ONE CARES CAUSE WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS FOR FOUR YEARS, we're rehashing it aaaagain.
So with that out of the way let's talk outfits. Gretchen is clearly bringing her little portable Barbie closet she had from childhood to the designer for Alexis Couture and asking for direct reproductions. All of her little girl dreams of sparkles, flounces, and seafoam fantasies are being brought to life. Seriously Gretchen is reliving my youth with that aquamarine number. I especially loved how she matched the side-weave to the one-sleeve.
Heather Dubrow's hair needs a deep conditioner and a good cut. Even though I'm sure Princess Champs On Ice probably pays $300 for a haircut, it looks like Gretchen played Barbies with Heather's head. Since Heather is the brown-hair Barbie friend Gretchen practiced "beauty school" with her locks. Result: fail.
Ryan Culberson is feeling the unfortunate side-effects of reality TV and 15 minutes of fame. You have no secrets anymore, honey! Just ask your mother-in-law Vicki Gunvalson. #ToothlessGreekAffair #Threeway #CheatingWithBrokesAyers #PissyGunderpants
On the season finale Ryan got loud and abrasive with Lydia McLaughlin's 64-year-old mom Judy when she was *gasp* resting her feet on Vicki's brand. new. sofa. Ryan flew into an appetite for destruction rage and cussed her out.
Days after Ryan Culberson was seen screaming obscenities at Lydia McLaughlin's elderly mother Judy, he's now defending his behavior and claiming Bravo edited it to make him look like the bad guy. So, no apologies from him!
“There was so much more … that led up to that incident which they fail to include to make me look like the crazy Marine,” Briana Culberson's husband told the Marine Corps Times. “It definitely was a crazy night and I cannot get over how the producers edited it.”
Judy was tired and wanted to put her feet up when Ryan accosted her during last night's Real Housewives of Orange County finale, ripped her a new one, called her the b-word and then tried to play the revisionist history game and blame the whole thing on Judy. And yeah, nice try.
"My poor mom," Lydiabegins in her Bravo blog. "It's super hard for me to watch that scene unfold. I wasn't in the room with her when the whole Ryan confrontation took place. However, my brother and sister-in-law were there and they left right after because they couldn't believe what they saw."
What can we say about last night's season finale of Real Housewives of Orange County except those ladies need to re-evaluate their choices in men! Dang girls… Dr. V needs to get in there and do a summit on low self-esteem and co-dependent entanglements. I mean, that was a m.e.s.s. And not a fun one!
We're all back in the fabricated winter wonderland ofVicki Gunvalson's back yard. Despite the warm California breeze, glitterfied snow is everywhere. Suddenly the air turns icy… Gretchen Rossi has arrived. On her arm, an abominable faux man – Slave Smiley. While Gretchen pageant glides, in smiling engagingly at the Styrofoam penguin statues and paper mache snowmen, the other ladies are gorging themselves on a 'We hate Gretchen' buffet of snide comments and frosty complaints.
Poor Gretchen, the wool was pulled over her eyes because she had no idea the entertainment for the evening was pelting her with verbal snowballs and stealing her mittens.
And meanwhile, some other backstabbing was taking place at the party! See Vicki has a son-in-law FROM HELL and he was melting all the cute little decorations with his vendetta of mean. There he was shuffling around the party, drink in hand, complaining about Vicki, hinting at all the dirt he has on Brooks, and boasting that he basically controls Vicki's house by refusing to let Brooks in. Good lord! Shut. Up. Was Ryan auditioning for RHOC to replace Tamra Barney as next season's villain?
