Am I the only one who forgot that Naomie Olindo is a full-time cast member? I feel like I have been in more episodes this season than she has. However, the few times that we did see her, she was telling us how she didn’t think she was good enough for her “perfect” boyfriend Metul Shah. During tonight’s reunion episode, she defends her man from accusations that he is controlling.
Meanwhile, Shep Rose wonders if Metul’s demeanor is a result of cultural differences, prompting Naomie to remind him that Metul is from Washington, D.C. not India. Oh, Shep.
We are three episodes in to the Real Housewives of Orange County and the drama is already ramping up. On last week’s show, we watched demoted Vicki Gunvalson chasing Kelly Dodd around Tamra Judge’s house to try to talk out their differences. Or, more likely, to get extra screen time to try to regain her orange.
So far, the season looks to be more promising than the last few. I am liking newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who seems interesting and grounded. We’ll see how long that lasts! Veteran Tamra’s storyline so far has been her new home–and shamelessly planting some seeds for future conflict between her sons Ryan Vieth and Spencer Barney. Of course, Tamra is all about pot-stirring–and creating drama by voicing her opinions on everything. Fortunately–or unfortunately–for viewers, Tamra is willing to do this both on and off the show.
Craig Conover has been pretty open this season. Southern Charm has taken him from party-boy with no work ethic to finding his way after a rough break up. Viewers have noticed the obvious over the years, Craig consistently never seems to stay on task. He tends to lose focus on a whim. Craig has come clean on challenges his faced while finishing (or not finishing) law school. When his own lack of structure caused concern, he hired a life coach. After his relationship with Naomie Olindo ended, he admitted suffering from depression.
Craig is not a bad guy. He hasn’t been arrested for sexual assault. He hasn’t publicly humiliated a person for his own amusement. He’s never been the subject of media taunting after definitely not having sex with two random women. Much like everyone else in the world, Craig has his own issues to deal with. Because he spends a great deal of time on camera, some of his actions have been called into question. He can’t seem to hold a full-time job. He takes on different projects with no conclusion. While some might label Craig as “flakey,” there is a medical term for characteristics displayed by his behavior. Attention Deficit Disorder is a common, chronic condition. People are often prescribed medication to control the impulsive or hyperactive temperaments upon diagnosis. Now Craig is sharing his experience in finding out, sometimes the medication can become part of the problem.
The Real Housewives of Orange County kicked off its 14th season sans one OG. In the Demotion Heard ‘Round The World, Vicki Gunvalson’s Original Gangsta status has been reduced to simply… Gangsta. Viewers never thought it would happen, and Vicki didn’t either. Fans said buh-bye to Vick and friends turned on her when she stayed with
lying, scamming ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers. But nothing seemed to dim the light of the Woo-Hoo wannabe. In fact, if you were to ask Vicki, she might tell you how the success of RHOC can be credited to her role on the show.
But is Vicki still successful? After years of the same fights with Tamra Judge, we watched. After an endless search for someone to fill her love tank, we watched. And after plastic surgery even the CIA doesn’t have access to, we watched. I’m guessing the bigwigs at Bravo were watching too, and maybe not liking what they saw. Vicki needed to pull a rabbit out of a hat, or an engagement out of a retired cop, to secure her continued spot on the show. Steve Lodge came through for Vicki and asked her to be his wife in April of this year. Unfortunately for Vicki, the ring didn’t mean a thing because, no orange. Now Vicki is opening up about being reduced to “Friend”, and she says she isn’t going anywhere.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jennifer Aydin is teasing what is coming up for Season 10, and it sounds epic! Jennifer said that we have the fiery Teresa Giudice back. Buckle up, and bolt down any tables in Teresa’s vicinity.
Tequila monster Jennifer and RHONJ co-star Melissa Gorga were seen arguing at a Hampton’s restaurant. In another incident, Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub continued their feud by throwing water at each other, and allegedly lighting a purse on fire. Yikes!
The event that Bravo fans have been waiting for is upon us. The first-ever BravoCon is going down November 15-17 in New York City. This announcement came a couple of months ago, but no other information was released until late last week.
The tickets are not on sale, yet, but they will be next week and there are options for different schedules and budgets. Although, the event isn’t cheap, by any means. Will this be the most epic event of all time? Or the reality TV equivalent of the Fyre Festival? Let’s hope for the former.
When Danielle Staub rejoined Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dolores Catania saw right through her bullshit. On the other hand, Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, and Teresa Giudice were feeding into it. Hell, they were all bridesmaids in her televised wedding.
Now, Teresa and Danielle are on the outs, but it’s unclear what exactly went down. They’re not following each other on Instagram, making their rift social media official. Last season, the RHONJ ladies were sick of Danielle’s antics, but she managed to charm Teresa with that “best friends” necklace and kissing her ass whenever possible. Now, Danielle is really on the outs and Melissa has something to do with that.
Camille Grammer has been front and center during Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She married David C. Meyer in Hawaii, and co-star Kyle Richards served as a bridesmaid. Viewers were able to see the wedding, and it was lovely. Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave attended the nuptials.
But with Lisa Vanderpump skipping the wedding, Camille expressed her disappointment to the Beverly Hills ladies. Soon after, a magazine article professing how much Camille cares for LVP appeared, and the RHOBH cast was miffed. In fact, on the way to the airport, they dissed Camille’s special day. No one puts Camille in a corner, and she came out swinging!
