A lot of your favorite reality TV stars were focused on the family time this week. Being mid-divorce did not stop Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Roger Mathews from spending a Disney-themed day with their daughter.
Real Housewives of Orange County
Unfortunately, Lizzie Rovsek only got one season as a full-time cast member on The Real Housewives of Orange County. She did return as a Friend of the Housewives the following season and she’s made guest appearances here and there. Just last season she showed up for Vicki Gunvalson’s party.
She may have been a one and done Housewife, but she does have a lot of scoop on the cast members and everything that went down during Seasons 9 and 10. Not only that, but she’s still in touch with Vicki and Kelly Dodd in addition to being friends with new Housewife Emily Simpson.
During the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon Beador went to Philadelphia to launch her line of healthy meals on QVC. For the most part, that went pretty well and now Shannon has another food-related business in mind.
She recently revealed how she wants to incorporate her line Real for Real Cuisine into a restaurant concept.
The family that gets extensions together, stays together right? Obviously that isn’t the old adage or even a saying at all, but if it was it would be applicable to Don’t Be Tardy stars Kim Zolciak and her daughters Brielle Biermann and Ariana Biermann.
With Shannon Beador and Jeff Lewis in the clubhouse, there was bound to be ample amounts of shade on last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live. Well, with Jeff Lewis and Andy Cohen, there’s bound to be ample amounts of shade. Shannon is more of a ‘straight to the point’ kind of girl than a shade thrower.
Shannon and Jeff discussed everything from Real Housewives of Orange County newcomer Gina Kirschenheiter, Vicki Gunvalson’s anti-divorce campaign, and of course, Jeff’s feud with Flipping Out costar Jenni Pulos.
Sheesh was last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County a big ole snooze. When the most exciting thing that happens is Shannon Beador bending over on national TV (and I don’t think she was attempting the Legally Blonde Bend & Snap!) before wobbling her own self-described gut, you know it’s gonna be a good one!
Look, I feel for Gina Whatserfacernameo, but I am so tired of her talking about her divorce! I KNOW, I KNOW – getting divorced is traumatic, painful, and all-consuming, but we’re not connected to Gina or Mystery Meat Matt who just walked through our door, and yet every episode features Gina crying over how she knows she’s doing the right thing by ending her marriage, but yada, yada, yada…
Moral compasses aside, the ladies are making their best efforts to get along on tonight’s Real Housewives of Orange County. In the wake of Gina Kirschenheiter’s divorce announcement, Vicki Gunvalson is still spewing her “stay married” advice. However, this time it’s poor Steve Lodge who is the captive audience. She really tries to work marriage into about every conversation with this man, doesn’t she? The best part of this story is that her holier than thou conversation happens at a biker bar after an afternoon of riding a motorcycle with her man. Talk about a fish out of water!
Meanwhile in the OC, Emily Simpson admits that she loves living so close to her in-laws. Not only does her pocket MIL provide wonderful insight, but she’s a damn good babysitter, too! Speaking of babies, Emily has a tragic past with pregnancies which is what ultimately led her sister to be a surrogate for her and Shane. With nine viable embryos still on ice with her doctor, she is eager to give her own daughter a sister close in age. The only snag in her plan? Shane isn’t on board for another child…yet.
When I’m wrong, I say I’m wrong (kudos to anyone who remembers who said that movie quote!), and I was wrong. At the beginning of this season of Real Housewives of Orange County, I didn’t have time to invest in the new cast members. The OGs (and then some) have enough drama. Why did Bravo bring in new ladies to interact with the hypocritical harpies who need an orthopedic boot to fit into their mean girls group?
That said, I’m reformed. I now enjoy Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter. They are a refreshing backdrop to Shannon Beador’s insecurities, Kelly Dodd’s tantrums, Vicki Gunvalson’s delusions, and Tamra Judge’s judginess (that’s not technically a word, but work with me). Could this group of many-times divorced ladies relate to or show an ounce of concern for Gina as she navigates a path that most of these broads could walk in the pitch black dark? Why do they want her to stay married when they didn’t? Should she be made to share her soul’s secrets with women who are trying their hardest to force nature’s hand with injections when they are likely the age of her mother? I don’t think so. You know who agrees with me? Newbie Emily. **
