Elizabeth Lyn Vargas is an interesting addition to Real Housewives of Orange County. I say “interesting” because I genuinely can’t tell if I like her or not. She has all of the things you might want in a housewife. She has a billionaire ex-husband. Elizabeth has an obsession with general materialism fancy cars. Then, there’s her odd outlook on sex, and a kind of tragic backstory. Plus, she makes Shannon Beador squirm.
Shannon can barely contain her insecurity around Elizabeth because she knows she has some real green money. Elizabeth was married to Bernt Bodal, (sounds like a Bond villain), owner of American Seafood Group, for five years. We also know Elizabeth couldn’t take being a billionaire’s wife and that he got some other woman pregnant. That sucks all around, especially because he told her he didn’t want kids. Now, Elizabeth is coming to collect.
Being in quarantine has afforded us time to get to know the walls of our homes very well. We can avoid complete and total boredom by binge watching our favorite television shows or reading a novel or two. Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval has spent his down time frosting the tips of his hair and being five minutes away from going full Backstreet Boys retro. But Tom has also had an opportunity to cuddle up with some new material.
Tom happened to read a couple chapters from Kristen Doute’s “self-empowerment” effort. Before being fired from Pump Rules and dropped by her publishing company, Kristen had been touting her new book. Wanting women to “own their crazy“, Kristen wrote about her (former) fellow cast members and old boyfriends. One of those boyfriends was Tom and according to Sandy, some of Kristen’s memories might have been courtesy of artistic license.
Currently, Candiace Dillard’s biggest adversary is Monique Samuels, followed close behind by Ashley Darby.
Last season on Real Housewives of Potomac, Candiace’s biggest foe was her own mother, Dorothy Dillard, even though she Wass paying Candiace’s bills. Dorothy tried to get Candiace to uninvited her half-brother from her wedding. She also slapped Candiace in the face with a big purse during a disagreement. Dorothy and Candiace had so much drama last season that Dorothy got her own segment on the reunion.
What can you say about Kelly Dodd? Kelly has proven to be both a lover and a fighter, in that she loves herself and fights with everyone else. Some people find the Real Housewives of Orange County star abrasive and difficult to get along with. Others find her an open chasm of misinformation and delusion that is willingly shared with a wide audience.
Kelly has weathered many storms and personal attacks. She wound up with fan support after fired Vicki Gunvalson accused her of doing blow and Tamra Judge lodged a sex train rumor with Kelly’s name attached. Unfortunately, that support now seems to be… withering. As a result of some sketchy social media posts, Kelly has fallen out of favor. There’s even a whole petition on the streets to get her fired from RHOC. Recently Kelly implied she isn’t welcome on certain Bravo shows, and that has folks wondering if Ms. Dodd is on her 14th minute.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City just premiered, and it is fascinating. Meredith Marks, one of the RHOSLC cast members, feels that there is a great blend of both religious and ethnic diversity on the show. Meredith is Jewish and is from Chicago. She is a jewelry designer favored by celebrities, even Real Housewives of New York alum Tinsley Mortimer.
Jen Shah, who is Bravo’s first Polynesian Housewife, appears to be the leader, and the loudest, member of the group. After all, she communicates with her staff and family with her microphone.
At this point you’d think Emily Simpson would be used to people making fun of her husband, Shane Simpson. It’s just too easy to hate him on Real Housewives of Orange County. He puts Emily down on camera, isn’t funny, acts superior to everyone when he absolutely is not, and just plain grosses me out.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s husband, Sean Burke, however has been giving Shane a run for his money at the “Worst Husband on RHOC” title. Sean was all up in Gina Kirschenheiter’s face at Shannon Beador’s party during this week’s episode. While I initially thought Gina was blowing the text messages he sent her out of proportion, I can’t help but see Sean in a different light. And it’s not because of the dorky outfit he was wearing. It’s because he’s such an enabler. Anyways, Andy Cohen is also curious about the similarities between Sean and Shane.
Ahoy, yachties! Welcome to Season 8 of Below Deck, where the Stud of the Sea himself — Captain Lee Rosbach — is ready to take back the Caribbean. Wait. Captain? Captain Lee, are you there? Cap? The captain is not on the boat, people. I repeat: the captain is not on the boat.
This is what returning bosun Eddie Lucas discovers thirty seconds into the premiere when he boards My Seanna with his well-worn Cotopaxi backpack and is greeted by….no one. The gorgeous motor yacht we first met back in Season 6 is empty. And after making a quick call, Eddie discovers why: Captain Lee is in the hospital. But it’s not for a broken heart over Kate Chastain‘s exit from the series like you probably thought. No, turns out the invincible old sea dog slipped in the shower and smashed several ribs. We’re talking badly enough to be admitted to Mount St. John’s Medical Centre in Antigua.
When Andy Cohen welcomed his son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, on February 4, 2019, he knew that his life was going to be forever changed. But, unfortunately, this major life change also had an unintended effect on Andy’s beloved rescue dog, Wacha.
Andy and Wacha were besties for about seven years. There is even a stuffed animal Wacha on the Watch What Happens Live set.
