Ok, what is going on with the Real Housewives of Orange County? It seems like they just cannot keep out of the media with negative press. I know they say all press is good press but in this case, I would have to disagree.
The show has already experienced a major shakeup before the season even started filming with the
firing exit of OG’s Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. And Vicki has landed herself in hot water with her comments on coronavirus. So has Tamra, thanks to pictures she posted of her out with friends, no masks in sight. Which brings us to the current cast member, Kelly Dodd. Where do I even start? Kelly has been vocal about her constant travel, along with her insensitive comments about the virus. At this point, Kelly should do us all a favor and delete her social media. Honestly, the only person I’m here for with this cast is newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke. I know people have conflicting feelings on her first season but hey, at least she’s not out there sharing inconsiderate memes about COVID.
Even so, a girl’s gotta work and Braunwyn is no exception. She’s been seen filming with the rest of her castmates, which has caused it’s own controversy for ignoring social distancing rules. And now, Page Six reports they are all taking their cast trip, despite the pandemic.
While we don’t know the location of their trip, members of the cast took to social media to express their excitement. Gina Kirschenheiter posted a pic to her Instagram, posing with a suitcase and wearing a mask. Her caption reads, “Here’s a novel idea…Quarantine us all together. I’m sure it’s gonna go great.” She later changed the caption to read, “Take two….” Whatever that means?

For her part, Braunwyn posted a now-deleted Instagram story saying, “Family bed tonight since mommy is leaving tomorrow for a girls trip!” Ugh, Braunwyn. I was rooting for you. Maybe just cool it with the travel excitement while the world is in shambles.
At least castmates Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, and Kelly (yes, Kelly) have had enough sense to not post anything. Or maybe they just didn’t have time. I don’t want to give them too much credit here.
According to a rep for the network, “The Real Housewives of Orange County’ recently resumed production with a comprehensive health and safety plan. The plan was developed in accordance with CDC guidance, all state and local orders, as well as NBCUniversal’s own safety guidelines. The health and safety of the cast and crew is the priority of Bravo for all of its shows.”
Let’s just hope that’s true. As much as I would love some new housewives content, I could do without the cast of RHOC for just a little longer.
