Black Lives Matter

Andy Cohen

Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County was weird, and pretty boring. Of course, lightning rod Kelly Dodd was making dangerous comments about coronavirus repeatedly.

Kelly apologized profusely, no doubt hoping to save her RHOC job. She also managed to mock the Black Lives Matter movement by sporting a “Drunk Wives Matter” hat.

Drew Sidora Real Housewives Of Atlanta

It is no secret that Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore took an instant dislike to newbie Drew Sidora. Kenya and her bestie, new part-time cast member LaToya Ali, heckled Drew’s wig as “a pet wig.”

Kenya even compared Drew to former RHOA co-star Kim Fields. “Kim wasn’t thirsty. You know, Drew is just parched, honey,” Kenya remarked. “She is doing everything she can.”

Real Housewives Of Orange County Kelly Dodd

Kelly Dodd has been a controversial figure on Real Housewives of Orange County, especially last year. Kelly made many incorrect and dangerous comments about the coronavirus pandemic.

All Kelly has done is repeatedly apologize, only to issue more tone-deaf statements. In April o2020, the RHOC star referred to Covid-19 as “God’s way of thinning the herd!”

Drew Sidora Real Housewives Of Atlanta

Drew Sidora joined Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 13, and she is a solid addition to the cast. Drew has marital issues with her husband, Ralph Pittman. Ralph disappeared for three days with no communication. Drew needs a GPS tracker for her husband.

Drew is also dealing with shade from RHOA co-star Kenya Moore, and Kenya’s newbie mini-me, LaToya Ali. Kenya and LaToya insulted one of Drew’s wigs, and Kenya called Drew “a stray.” Ouch!

Braunwyn Windham-Burke Kelly Dodd

Real Housewives of Orange County had a crap year and it’s difficult who to blame the most. Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter were reduced to being the condiments in a giant, useless sandwich between two pieces of unfortunate bread named Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Poor Shannon STORMS Beador is kind of a discarded piece of lettuce clinging to the plate. There really is no prettying up this season, no matter how you slice it.

Kelly and Braunwyn were…something. Braunwyn managed to reveal numerous issues that negatively impacted both her well-being and her family. She managed to insult as many people as possible by shaming those who protect themselves from diseases and spent the remainder of her camera time unleashing her 23&Me results to prove she isn’t racist. Now Kelly is chomping at the bit and saying she refuses to film with Braunwyn going forward, and we all know how much Bravo loves an ultimatum…

Real Housewives Of Potomac RHOP Candiace Dillard

During these trying times, we take what we can get and what we are getting is more Candiace Dillard. Real Housewives of Potomac had an explosive season and part of it was due to Candiace’s award-winning performance as the “before” photo of an Oprah makeover. I would like to remind the class to keep your hands to yourself because sometimes folks who talk the talk don’t want to walk the walk.

Candiace’s trip to the wild side with Monique “Please Do” Samuels gave the show a boost. This particular #physicalaltercationbybravo garnered so much attention, LOTS of people weighed in, including other Housewives. Enter Porsha “I Wish A Bitch Would” Williams, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star and friend to Monique. Porsha implied Candy sued Mo for a money grab. Candiace responded (because she was 600 miles away), but apparently didn’t get it all out. Now Candy has something else to say to Porsha – Chris Bassett, come get your wife.

Kenya Moore Real Housewives Of Atlanta

This season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, we are seeing Porsha Williams on the front lines of the Black Lives Matter movement. She has come such a long way from earlier seasons and is honoring her grandfather Hosea Williams’ legacy in the Civil Rights movement.

In June, Porsha was at a peaceful protest march in Atlanta when tear gas was used on the crowd. Porsha was arrested. In August, the RHOA star was arrested again in Louisville, Kentucky during another peaceful protest.

Real Housewives Of Orange County Emily Simpson

What’s the best way of escaping the horrors of a global pandemic ravaging the entire planet? Why, going on a vacation, of course! So this week, the Real Housewives of Orange County pack up and head off to Lake Arrowhead for a much-needed girls’ trip full of bonding, face masks and arguing over whether Black lives matter! (Which, they absolutely do, for the record.) Well, not all the ‘Wives. Because for some, the coronavirus had already caught up before they could make their getaway to the lake.

Last week’s Real Housewives of Orange County ended with the news that one of Shannon Beador‘s twins had tested positive for coronavirus. Which obviously sent the veteran ‘Wife into a full-blown panic lockdown. And now, Emily Simpson can’t go on the cast trip either because she too has tested positive. Her symptoms are mild — she doesn’t even have a fever — and she can’t pinpoint where she caught it, but she’ll be quarantined with her family until further notice.
