Even though Vicki Gunvalson was technically a “part-time cast member” she did give us the most at the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 reunion. Is there anything to talk about other than Vicki’s outbursts, Vicki’s hypocrisy, and Vicki’s insults? Yes, technically, but nothing that interesting.
Vicki has been facing a lot of backlash for her comments about Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s sex life that she made during the reunion taping. She said, “We have got to be women that people want to emulate to be.” Yes, she actually thinks that makes sense. Moving on, Vicki said Braunwyn’s life choices were “disgusting.”
Does Tamra Judge have something on Shannon Beador? I’m not trying to start rumors, but I am just trying to wrap my head around (what appears to be) Shannon’s blind loyalty. Did she not see the several flashback scenes with Tamra trash-talking Shannon, unprovoked mind you? Oh, right. Tamra says that she never said those things (that we all saw on camera). Instead, she blamed it on Kelly Dodd.
Shannon, you’re in danger girl. With a best friend like Tamra, who needs enemies? Even with all the video footage as evidence, Shannon has nothing against her BFF. Instead, they are united in their quest to take down Kelly Dodd (and get rid of her orange). Good luck with that one.
Meghan Edmonds has had a rough year. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum dealt with a sexting scandal because her husband, Jim “Dad Jeans” Edmonds was caught with his pants down. But don’t worry–Jim assured the world that he didn’t technically cheat. Sure, Jim.
Meghan also alleged that Jim was cheating with their nanny. Then Meghan received some more devastating news. According to Radar Online, one of the couple’s twin sons, Hart, was diagnosed with Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). It is a type of “irreversible brain damage.” The former RHOC star has been devoted to getting Hart the early intervention that he needs.
Finally we have reached the end of the line with Real Housewives Of Orange County. It has been a long and confusing season of many Housewives I do not particularly like. Tamra Judge, I am looking at you. Furthermore I am so thankful I will no longer have to type Brauwnyn Windham-Burke‘s exhausting name, as exhausting as the woman herself, every week. Ugh.
Among the many revelations from part 3 of the reunion, we learned that skanky behavior has always been a cornerstone of the show’s foundation and Andy Cohen will not have you argue it any other way. Boobs out, girls!
We open with Vicki Gunvalson accusing Braunwyn of violating the show’s moral compass, causing Vicki to lose 2 clients. I’m sorry, so dating cancer scamming Brooks Ayers meets Vici’s clients “moral compass”? Andy reminds Vicki that she has flashed her tits at the dinner table, given fake blow jobs (in addition to plenty of low blows) and participated in the Naked Wasted episode with Gretchen Rossi, so why the revisionist history??
OK, so once again rolling in super tardy with a recap. This time for part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Sorry Vicki Gunvalson – I respect Christmas more than I respect you!
Legit question, though: Vicki wasn’t even a ‘Housewife’ this season, yet she is the star of this reunion? There she is, sitting in the supremo spot next to Andy Cohen, and at this point 3/4 of the reunion has been dedicated to dissecting Vicki’s antics and her fights on the show.
Part 2 was all about Vicki’s failed friendship with Kelly Dodd, and once again they promised to bury the hatchet
in each other’s backs. First, though, they rehash the train rumor, the cocaine allegation, the throw mama down the stairs off a train tale, the broken hand in a bar con-woman catfight… You know, all the classics!
It’s hard to believe we are at the end of season 14 of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Some highlights of the season for me were getting to know Emily Simpson a little better and Gina Kirschenheiter chasing after a dramatic Tamra Judge in the finale. Plus Kelly Dodd taking no prisoners on the cast trip to Key West–and on Part 1 of the reunion. And dare I say, Vicki Gunvalson’s demotion?
Lowlights include Tamra and Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s make out session, Dr. Deb’s tough love maternal instincts and some of the Tres Amigas’ escapades. Kelly and the Amigas were at odds most of the season over everything from Shannon Beador’s Miraval retreat gonging to the ugly rumors spread about Kelly. Over-the-top retaliation by Kelly, including inserting herself in the Jim Bellino lawsuit fueled the feud. Will the Amigas and Kelly ever find their way back to each other? Shannon recently made it clear that she and Kelly are still on the outs.
