No love lost here. Real Housewives of Orange County’s Kelly Dodd doesn’t seem sad that two of the tres amigas are no longer filming. Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge will not return to the franchise when filming resumes.
This has left many fans wondering how Kelly will handle having Shannon Beador, aka the last amiga, around. And I think it’s fair to say Kelly doesn’t seem the least bit worried.
Tamra Judge may declared herself the “hottest Housewife in Housewife in Orange County” when she joined The Real Housewives of Orange County way back in Season 3, but could she be the darkest one too?
In a new interview, the reigning queen bee of RHOC (sorry, Vicki Gunvalson) looked back on how the show has changed over the last 12 years, and opened up about her impact on the direction of the franchise in its earliest days.
Even though Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd are constantly at odds, the Real Housewives of Orange County stars do have one habit in common. No, I’m not referring to their tendency to go for the jugular mid-argument. I’m actually talking about their shared habit of tweeting and deleting scathing remarks.
Thankfully, screenshots exist. Hopefully, Kelly plans to continue those anger management sessions because she went too far in response to Tamra hating on her hairline.
We’ve got another case of “she said, she said,” folks. Real Housewives of Orange County alum Heather Dubrow’s assistant Natalie Puche accused Heather of firing her when she started maternity leave. If that’s the case, then damn, that’s colder than those hexagonal-shaped ice cubes in Heather’s freezer.
Obviously, Heather denies the claims. And, of course, Natalie deleted all of her social media posts bashing Heather. However, screenshots and receipts live on forever.
It is hard to believe that it has been three years since Heather Dubrow was a Housewife. The former Real Housewives of Orange County star left the show after five seasons. It is difficult to imagine Heather having any interest in the current casts’ lawsuits, sleazy sex talk, drunk driving charges, bitter divorces and general debauchery. What would Heather think? I bet there would be a lot of “Oh dears” coming from her mouth! And how would she perceive crass Gina Kirschenheiter or needy over-sharer Braunwyn Windham Burke?
Heather gave us many memorable moments on the show–from throwing Shannon Beador out of her house to having a melt-down when the perfect cake at her party was defiled by a guest. Since leaving RHOC, Heather has been focusing on a number of ventures, including co-authoring several books with husband Terry Dubrow. Heather has also hosted her own podcast Heather Dubrow’s World and the fashion-oriented Heather’s Closet on YouTube. Most notably, she has continued her skin care line with Terry, Consult Beaute. Now, Heather is ready to conquer the fashion world.
After last week’s incredibly cringeworthy Real Housewives of Orange County episode, we all need a palate cleanser. Let’s check in with
Fancy Pants Heather Dubrow and see what she’s up to. Since leaving RHOC, Heather has kept busy with her enormous house. You might have seen Heather and husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, selling their skincare line on QVC. She also hosts her own podcast called, Heather Dubrow’s World.
All of that along with wrangling her four children is a lot. Now we mustn’t forget that Heather is first and foremost an actress! Why, she’s been on Malibu Country! Sadly, that show ended in 2013. Heather even had a part on Hot In Cleveland! Unfortunately, that show’s final episode aired in 2015. So what else has been keeping the former Housewife busy? If you guessed stand-up comedy, you might be right!
Watching the Real Housewives of Orange County this week made me a little nostalgic for Housewives days gone by. You remember–when the show was focused on women who lived in beautiful homes, drove fancy cars, took dream trips and shopped for high end clothing and jewelry. Sure, some of it was all smoke and mirrors and a few of the ladies were one credit card transaction ahead of financial disaster, but the show usually delivered as promised.
Somehow, in the intervening years, everything changed. Fights became routine. Screaming came to be the preferred method of communication. Damaging gossip had the potential to ruin lives. Some cast members like Heather Dubrow managed to mostly stay above the fray, but many ladies were only too happy to wallow in the mud. Which leads us to this week’s episode. Married Housewives Tamra Judge and Braunwyn Windham-Burke in a disturbing public make out session. Usually prudish Shannon Beador exchanging spit with a random stranger. How did this all come to be?
First of all, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Secondly, the Word of the Day is: hypocrisy. Former full-time Real Housewives of Orange County star, Vicki Gunvalson, is going to give us a lesson in our Word of the Day. Oh, this will be fun! Being Vicki’s friend is no easy task. It begs the question, is anyone friends with Vicki not on the Bravo payroll? Just ask Kelly Dodd. Since joining RHOC, Kelly has had disputes with most of her co-stars. From alums Heather Dubrow (I miss her, don’t judge me) and Meghan King Edmonds, to current conflicts with Tamra Judge and Shannon STORMS Beador, Kelly has added drama to the show.
Speaking of drama, Vicki is quite familiar with the word. We won’t mention her
cancer-scamming sordid past with men. Or her endless fights with Tamra. It’s safe to say while Vicki once reigned supreme, the OG of the OC has morphed into the OG of the Oh Please Make It Stop. That said, Vicki is still out for blood and her target is Kelly. Vicki feels Kelly needs to start taking accountability for her actions and try being nice for a change. I will now invite you to remember our Word of the Day: Hypocrisy.
