Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 is coming to a close tonight, well, sort of. We do still have the reunion ahead. The finale episode is on tonight and it centers around Vicki Gunvalson and Steve Lodge’s engagement party. That’s just so ironic that the season ends with an event centered around Vicki during the only season when she’s been a part-time cast member.
Shannon Beador uses the special occasion as a date night and she brings a familiar face (to the longtime viewers, anyway), Duff Evans. Yes, Tammy Knickerbocker’s ex. Only the longtime viewers know who I’m talking about, but it doesn’t really matter anyway since Shannon is dating someone else at this point in real life.
And then there’s a storyline that none of us are attached to: Emily Simpson helps Gina Kirschenheiter pack up her Coto house. We’ve never seen Matt Kirschenheiter, in this house or anywhere else. Gina wasn’t honest about their relationship right from her very first scene. It’s so hard to be invested in all this. Yes, people feel bad that Gina is struggling, but we don’t know Matt Kirschenheiter from a hole in the wall. I don’t want to see Gina packing up some tacky home decor and crates of metallic eyeliner and ratty hair extensions.
We will get to see the awkward tension between Braunwyn Windham-Burke and her mom, the Great Value Betsy Johnson, better known as Dr. Deb. The mother/daughter duo continues to skirt around their issues with some weird yoga session tonight. Am I the only one who just isn’t here for Dr. Deb? She tries way too hard for someone who has no shot at holding an orange. If Braunwyn returns, production needs to majorly cut down on Dr. Deb’s screentime.

Emily gets a surprising medical diagnosis, which I’m assuming has something to do with her recent hip surgery. Hopefully, it’s nothing more serious.
And, of course, the big event of the episode is Tamra Judge’s meltdown at the sight of Kelly Dodd. I mean, the big event of the episode is Vicki and Steve’s engagement party. Tamra actually runs away in the preview, giving me flashbacks to Tamra’s meltdown in Bali. Classic.
