Didn’t Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Orange Countyjust end? It seems like I just cleared the episodes from my DVR. And now, there is already talk of the new season. While Housewives are on hiatus, there is always a lot of chit-chat about who will return. Will there be new cast members? Will everyone be back? Some of it is gossip, some of it is fueled by the media-friendly ladies themselves.
Now, there are updates on Season 14-yes, Season 14! A new cast member has reportedly been added to the mix. And there is speculation on the status of the OG of the OG’s, Vicki Gunvalson.
Part one of the reunion ended with Kelly Dodd screaming into the phone and crying. Part 2 opened with VickiGunvalson apologizing for repeating a rumor she heard about Kelly using cocaine. While that is all nice and good, we know that Vicki’s apology is as sincere as the one Kelly gave for calling Vicki a “pig” and a “fat ass.” Shannon, however, ermerges as the unlikely voice of reason when she points out that the negativity and tit for tat is really hitting too low and isn’t making either woman feel (or look) good. And no amount of plastic surgery erases a bad attitude!
The most important part of any reunion is to dissect the outfits. First of all, Shannon Beador looks great! I don’t know if it’s the glowy spray tan indicating a break from Dr. Moon‘s holistic practices of wiping Shannon’s entire body in tan resistant mineral powders to ward of surface level UV free radicals, or the 30lb weight loss, or finally shedding her toxic friendship with Tamra Judge, but Shannon looks better than we’ve seen her in years. THIS is the divorced Shannon we were craving all season!
As we all know, Vicki Gunvalson’s infamous ex-boyfriend faked medical documents. It was the messiest storyline of all time. Meghan is an alum these days, but that does not mean she’s let go of her strong opinions. Not by a long shot.
They theorized that Steve Lodge might not be the one for Vicki– based on zero evidence. That’s really not a great move to make after recently reconciling with someone, but it was much more interesting to watch than anything last season. At least Shannon and Tamra are talking to Vicki this year.
The guy was just a total user. Vicki even bought him new teeth. Sure, Brooks brought some iconic story lines to this show, but it was definitely at Vicki’s expense. Unfortunately for her, that relationship is something she will always be associated with.
Season 12 of Real Housewives of Orange Countywas the worst in the history of the show. Pretty much no one wanted to film with Vicki Gunvalsonand essentially nothing happened the entire time. During the reunion, Tamra Judge and Vicki formed a truce with a heartfelt hug, but even so they still had a long way to go in their relationship.
During the second episode of Season 13, Vicki finally apologized for spreading rumors that Tamra’s husband Eddie Judge is “secretly gay.” The meetup seemed to end well, but what does Tamra truly think about Vicki’s apology?
