Real Housewives of Orange County has been bringing the drama this season. We have watched Emily Simpson struggle to balance her job and children while her
little bitch husband, Shane Simpson, supposedly studied to take the bar exam. You know–the kind of studying you do locked away in a hotel for days with no communication with your family.
Then, Emily was swept up in newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s first misstep as a Housewife. In this case, Braunwyn, the mom of seven, was caught in a lie. And in a tacky visor for the Shannon Beador bus trip.
Tamra Judge has capitalized on Vicki Gunvalson’s (relative) absence during the current Real Housewives of Orange County season. She has thrown her “best friend” under the bus. Yet again.
Tamra claimed that Vicki was the one who revealed the train rumor about Kelly Dodd, giving Kelly even more vitriol against her nemesis. Strangely, Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke were present when TAMRA was the one who mentioned the word “train” and explained what it was. Yet here they are going along with the convenient narrative that Vicki brought this up during filming. Vicki has done a lot of terrible things on RHOC, particularly to Kelly, but she didn’t quite pull the trigger on this one. Yes, it was very obvious that she was in on an orchestrated plan to take down Kelly, but there’s more to it than that. Much more, and it’s not just about Tamrat.
Surprise, surprise, Vicki Gunvalson doesn’t like the new girl.
Over the past fourteen years, the OG of the OC has become famous for her unapologetic hazing of new cast members on The Real Housewives of Orange County, and it looks like Braunwyn Windham-Burke is no exception.
As much as Tamra Judge is trying her hardest to remove Gretchen Rossi and Lizzie Rovsek from relevancy, she ironically gives them even more shine with her antics. A couple of episodes ago, Tamra flipped out at Braunwyn Windham-Burke for texting Lizzie and Gretchen, who are good friends with Emily Simpson.
It seemed like Emily was the one who gave Tamra the screenshots since she mentioned that she had them during one of her confessional interviews, but she actually didn’t.
In an effort to be accepted by the cool girls, Gina Kirschenheiter handed the texts over to Tamra. This is not-at-all surprising since Gina is so excited to finally be accepted by Tamra and Shannon Beador. Goodbye, Emily, Gina has officially crossed over to the other side. Meanwhile, Braunwyn is trying her best to be accepted even though Tamra and Shannon made her cry on that tour bus.
It’s mommy issues galore on Real Housewives Of Orange County! Can’t nobody raise a child right?!
Let’s start with Gina Kirschenheiter, who must Uber to the birthday party Emily Simpson is throwing for Annabelle. Then Gina gets there so late the Happy Birthday has already been sung. I thought Gina was actually bringing a used car seat as a gift until she revealed that she’s officially unable to drive until her DUI is resolved, and is actually Ubering everywhere.
As the party wraps up, after Gina treats herself to tiger face paint, she and Emily get to talking about… Gina. Which is all they ever talk about! This time Gina is panicked over how close she came to being arrested in her home in front of her children, and how scaring that would be. Emily likens it to the time she had to be taken away in an ambulance. Which pisses Gina off.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke may be a recent transplant to the OC from Miami, but it turns out that she’s more than a little well-connected to several past Orange County Housewives.
In a new interview, the Real Housewives of Orange County newbie opened up about her deep roots with one particular OG of the OC and picked which former ‘Wife she would want back on the show.
Poor Kelly Dodd–she somehow seems to be the newest target on the Real Housewives of Orange County. Last year at the reunion, soon-to-be-demoted Vicki Gunvalson more or less accused her of doing cocaine. This season, Vicki, Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador are whispering about Kelly allegedly participating in a “sex train”–a term I had never heard of before. Now I will never be able to listen to the song Midnight Train to Georgia in the same way again. Thanks, ladies!
So far, no one from the cast is really defending Kelly, other than Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who let Kelly know that her castmates were gossiping about her. Fortunately for Kelly, she has an outspoken Housewife ally–former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville. Which may or may not be favorable for Kelly.
New Housewife Braunwyn Windham-Burke is beginning to find out what the Real Housewives Of Orange County is all about. Braunwyn was caught in a lie this week about texting former OC cast members Gretchen Rossi and Lizzie Rovsek. For the alleged crime, she was put through a brutal Hollywood tour bus inquisition by unlicensed prosecuting attorneys Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge. Unfortunately, Shane Lil’ Bitch Simpson was unavailable to represent Braunwyn as he was busy trying to pass the California Bar exam.
Apparently, there is more to Braunwyn than being pretty, pleasant and procreative. Aside from finding out she sometimes lies to avoid confrontation, we are also learning more about Braunwyn’s complicated relationship with her mother, Dr. Deb. A woman who looks like Cyndi Lauper circa 1984 and dresses like JoJo Siwa circa 2019.
