Vicki Gunvalson

Vicki-Gunvalson-Skincare-Line

Is a Real Housewife even a Real Housewife if she doesn’t slap her name on a million business ventures? Apparently not. Even someone like Vicki Gunvalson who actually has a legitimate and successful insurance business is all about the side businesses.

Vicki has been a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County for the entire run of the show and she actually does have a real company, so it’s strange that she of all people would delve into all of these random (and usually unsuccessful ventures). From the bacon- flavored vodka, to the failed charity, to the app, and everything in between, none of it really makes any sense. Yet here she is again with another brilliant business proposition.

Since she’s gotten back into the mix on The Real Housewives Of Orange County, Meghan Edmonds has been carefully aligning herself with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador – no surprise to anyone. Except, perhaps, to newcomer Peggy Sulahian, who perpetually has no idea what’s going on, nor what show she signed up for.

In her blog this week, Meghan calls Peggy out for sticking her nose into business she knows nothing about, namely anything involving Vicki Gunvalson. Before Meghan breaks that situation down, she takes some time to celebrate positive ventures, including her “personal care line” called The King Collection, by K.Hall Designs. “I’m so passionate about my new collection and all of my work endeavors, so I know exactly how Shannon feels when she is talking about opening up a restaurant. She’s so excited to finally be living out her dream and I can’t wait to see the final outcome!”

Tamra Feuds With Peggy

Once Tamra Judge realized that new Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Peggy Sulahian was fond of Vicki Gunvalson, she made it clear that Peggy needed to switch sides if they were going to be friends. By that I mean she literally asked, “Do you want to be friends?” during the last episode when she was discussing her drama with Peggy.

Even though Peggy has zero bonds with anyone in the cast coming into this show, she honestly does have a point about them dwelling on the same issues forever and ever. Then again, she clearly hasn’t seen this show since the crux of Real Housewives is drudging up issues from the past over and over again. Not only that, but it’s just such a dicey situation with tough accusations and Peggy has no idea what she’s talking about since she didn’t know any of these people before joining the cast. She didn’t even watch the show beforehand.

Shannon at Lydia's Magazine Launch

I’m pretty sure that Shannon Beador has said that she’s “done” with Vicki Gunvalson and wants nothing to do with her at least once during every Real Housewives of Orange County episode this season. On one hand, that’s completely understandable given all the shit that’s gone down between them. On the other hand, she could leave the show if she really wants to avoid Vicki.

Fortunately for Shannon, this last episode was way better for her than the first few from this season. Throwing a plate full of food at a restaurant and getting into a screaming match at a toddler’s birthday party were not the best looks for her, so I don’t blame her for chilling out a little bit after all that went down.

Peggy Grabs Meghan's Lips

Even though it was reported everywhere that Meghan Edmonds would not be returning to Real Housewives of Orange County this season, she is back. She didn’t interact with any other cast members for the first three episodes, but she is back and even she thinks this season is boring.

And that is something most of us can agree on. Minus Shannon Beador’s iconic plate toss, this season has been a total snooze. Hopefully it picks up.

Kelly Dodd

Even though Kelly Dodd joined Real Housewives of Orange County as a friend of Meghan Edmonds, that friendship seems to be on the rocks these days. Meghan asked Kelly if she had a boyfriend on the side and Kelly fired back by saying that Meghan’s husband Jim Edmonds is having an affair.

Other than that, not much has happened between these two, but it’s clear shit is about to go down since they are constantly ripping on each other on social media and in interviews.

Lydia McLaughlin gets a car for her birthday

Oh, Lydia McLaughlin had so much good happen on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County – but the number one important event wasn’t Doug agreeing to a consolation for his ball removal, but that Lydia convinced Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge to meet and talk. Looks like the U.N. should be contacting Bravo to find their newest delegate. But maybe Lydia needs a lesson in the diplomacy of not calling people crazy first.

First up, since Lydia loves Doug’s balls, she wants us to know that she doesn’t actually want to get them cut off – she just wants them to stop producing viable sperm. Even though Doug is the “leader of our family,” baby number four is not on Lydia’s radar! “I had called and made Doug his consultation for his vasectomy because I knew he never would.” 

tamra-judge

If you were holding out hope that Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson were going to work out their issues, after reading her blog entry this week, you’ll see that ship has sailed. The Real Housewives of Orange County star declares that Vicki is dead to her and she is moving on to a new chapter in her friendship diary.

Tamra blogs about last night’s episode, “Peggy says it’s petty for Vicki and I to be arguing. MY question to her is WHO’S arguing? I’m just over Vicki’s crap and I don’t choose to have friends that stab me In the back all the time. I’m moving on — chapter closed!”
