Kelly Dodd has Ramona Singer to thank for introducing her to new fiancé Rick Leventhal. Yes, Ramona the woman who won’t let anyone else on Real Housewives of New York get a modicum male attention is actually a successful matchmaker.
Rick and Kelly started dating after they met in the Hamptons at the end of the summer and their relationship has moved at lightning pace. They got engaged after just a few months together and Rick hasn’t really met Kelly’s daughter Jolie. Yes, they’ve FaceTimed, but that’s it. Wow. At least, Jolie will (obviously) have some role in the wedding festivities, but what about the Housewives? Obviously, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge are not going to plan a bachelorette party. Vicki did say that Kelly got engaged for a storyline, after all.
Anyone who has been keeping tabs on the Real Housewives of Orange County knows that cast member Kelly Dodd is always bringing attention to herself with something she says. But most recently, it’s something she did that has everyone talking. Kelly recently announced via Instgram that she is engaged to her new boyfriend Rick Leventhal.
Cast mates Emily Simpson and Braunwyn Windham-Burke, along with various Housewives from the other franchises immediately reacted on social media to show their excitement over the engagement. Kelly happily showed off that goose egg of a rock he put on her finger.
Well, if there’s one thing a Housewives show doesn’t need more celebration of it’s boobs, although I think Real Housewives Of Orange County gave us the first itineration of celebrating boobs that weren’t just used for sex appeal… that is until Braunwyn Windham-Burke whipped hers out at her No More Nursing fiesta.
The theme of this party made absolutely no sense. It was a boobs bacchanalia with strippers, a nipple cake, and dildos on the wall, but Brauwnyn called it a “weaning party” meant to celebrate the end of nursing after 18 years.
Braunwyn’s entire life is reliving the youth she never got to experience, which is ironic only in that Dr. Deb‘s desperation to capture a thwarted youth is the sole reason why Braunwyn resents and hates her mother. So maybe Braunwyn will go on to have an illustrious career as a plastic surgeon specializing in mommy makeover boob jobs? I just can’t with this exhausting woman and her constant need to show off as the hot, fun mom. Enough already!
Well, I see Real Housewives Of Orange County is taking a turn for the classy with strippers at a weaning party! Braunwyn Windham-Burke, mother of 7, is celebrating the end of nursing after 19 years by throwing a weaning party for herself to honor all things boobs. Boobs and booze, that is.
Someone at Bravo Creative Industries, Inc is really running out of party themes after all these years, because a ‘weaning’ party is super scraping the bottom of the barrel!
Don’t threaten us with a good time, Vicki Gunvalson! The demoted Real Housewives of Orange County veteran has made a startling
empty threat announcement. Vicki has always made it clear she is delusional runs the show as the OG, but now in her 900th season, we are only seeing her on a “part-time” basis. While some fans feel it’s still too much, it was surprising when Vicki was kicked out of the VIP area. After an alleged strong suggestion from above, Vicki came through with a forced an engagement to Steve Chavez Lodge to offer some type of viewer interest. Apparently, it wasn’t enough.
Despite the humiliation of seeing her
cancer scamming star lose a bit of it’s shine, Vicki has maintained a positive outlook. She also made sure to let everyone with access to cable television know she is 100% available to come back to full-time status. Vicki subtly threatened said she wasn’t going anywhere until Bravo asked her to take a hike. I suppose the casting downgrade wasn’t a big enough hint. Now that Vicki has spent a season in demotionville, she has new thoughts. It looks like she might have gotten the hint after all.
In the midst of Season 14, a social media post took The Real Housewives of Orange County by storm. And no, we’re not talking about a topless Vicki Gunvalson‘s boobs inadvertently reflected in the packaging of a free pair of Beats headphones. (Well, not this time, at least). No, it was a hiking photo of Shannon Beador‘s ex-husband David Beador and his new girlfriend Lesley Cook locking lips while completely naked. In the wilderness. In the middle of the day.
The post is everything you’re imagining, even if you’ve been lucky enough not to have had it sent to you by a fellow, disgusted RHOC fan: bodies awkwardly smushed together. Unfortunate tan lines. Hiking boots inexplicably still on feet. Naturally, every fan of the show was dying to get Shannon‘s take on the nauseating full moon, and in a new interview, she finally broke her silence.
Shane Simpson has received a lot of attention this season. And not always in a positive way. The Real Housewives of Orange County hubby has taken lots of flack for his treatment of wife Emily Simpson. Gina Kirschenheiter has called Shane “disrespectful,” “snarky” and “mean.” Vicki Gunvalson compared Emily’s marriage issues to hers with ex Donn Gunvalson. Tamra Judge doesn’t think Emily’s marriage will survive reality television.
Viewers have watched Shane be dismissive of Emily and her feelings. When he was taking the bar exam, he isolated himself from their family. On a recent episode, Shane teased Emily with a bread basket at a restaurant when they were dining out, insensitive to Emily’s concerns about her weight. Apparently, his wife is not the only one of the RHOC cast Shane can be condescending to. One of Emily’s co-stars was also “Shane Shamed” the first time she met him.
Real Housewives Of Orange County is all about mommy issues this season, isn’t it? From the women having them with their own mothers (Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke) to having them with their own children (Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador), to being questionable mothers themselves (almost everyone).
Last night Shannon and Braunwyn tried to navigate sending children to college, Tamra sent Ryan Vieth to counseling, and all that was like blah, blah, blah… yada, yada, yada because the truly horrific, scarring, awfulness was the true exposure of just what a terrible person Tamra is. So much so that I actually feel bad for Racist Ryan.
Tamra has just returned from this truly life-altering and earth-shattering vacation in Scottsdale, AZ where she learned a pivotal message about being the leader of the mean girls: you can never turn your back – not even for a day. Not even for a hike with your husband. In Tamra’s absence, she’s gotten a slew of angry text messages from Kelly, and Shannon is basically giving her the silent treatment.
