The expectations for a Real Housewives reunion are pretty high. Do the women always deliver? Unfortunately, that is not the case every single time. It’s tough to predict, especially during a so-so season of Real Housewives of Orange County. It is a lot better than Season 12, but that’s really not saying much.
Sure, Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd got into that elongated fight about the secret double dates. Plus Kelly admitted that they are not on speaking terms, so seeing them in the same room should be interesting, but not too much went down beside that other than Shannon Beador’s breakdown in Jamaica. Hopefully there’s more for them to discuss from the tail end of the season, but the anticipation of drama is at a low point in comparison to other seasons.
No reunion clips have been released, but Andy Cohen and the ladies did release some behind-the-scenes photos. In a clear ode to Shannon, there are nine lemons in a bowl on the table. Other than that, the hair, makeup, and outfit choices were…. interesting.
Kelly looked on point as per usual….and you can judge the other looks for yourself. Taste is in the eye of the beholder, right?
The Season 13 seating chart reveals that Tamra Judge will be sitting closest to Andy on one couch with Kelly in the middle and new Housewife Gina Kirschenheiter on the end. Shannon will be sitting closest to Andy on the other couch with Vicki in the middle and the other new girl Emily Simpson on the end.
Am I the only one who feels like that’s a little off? First of all, Vicki has to be livid that she’s not right next to Andy. Then again, the second half of this season is all about Shannon. Second, shouldn’t the “tres amigas,” i.e. Vicki, Tamra, and Shannon, be on the same couch with the remaining Housewives on the other? Wouldn’t that make the most sense? I guess we will see how it goes when the episodes air.
