Brooks Ayers

Shannon welcomes Tamra & Vicki

Season 12 of Real Housewives of Orange County ended with Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge making peace with Vicki Gunvalson during a group hug. Three episodes into Season 13, Shannon and Tamra are comfortable enough to give Vicki unsolicited relationship advice during a drunk heart to heart.

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.

Vicki doesn't feel bad for Kelly

Even though Vicki Gunvalson is in a happy relationship with Steve Lodge, Real Housewives of Orange County viewers will never forget her scandalous relationship with Brooks Ayers.  Even before that infamous cancer scam, the fans and Vicki’s costars were very turned off by him.

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.

Tamra Judge

Season 12 of Real Housewives of Orange County was the worst in the history of the show. Pretty much no one wanted to film with Vicki Gunvalson and 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?

Dorinda Medley & 31 Surprise Guests On Watch What Happens Live; NeNe Leakes Has Beef With Reza Farahan

Last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was packed with (reality) star power. Andy Cohen had Dorinda Medley on as his featured guest and 31 other Bravolebrities rang the doorbell before making surprise appearances.

Since the episode was taped in Los Angeles, it was mostly cast members from the Bravo shows that take place in California: Vanderpump Rules, Shahs of Sunset, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Real Housewives of Orange County, but plenty of other notable Bravo personalities showed up. It was a really fun episode to watch, but the 31 extra guests definitely took away from Dorinda’s time in the spotlight- at least in my opinion.

Vicki Gunvalson’s Ex Brooks Ayers Confirmed That He Is Now A Married Man

The Brooks Ayers cancer scandal had reach beyond the Real Housewives of Orange County fandom. This storyline made national news. Even non-Bravo viewers were voicing their opinions on Vicki Gunvalson’s then-boyfriend.

Now, he’s officially someone else’s problem husband. That’s right. Someone actually married Brooks Ayers. Brooks’ new wife is a woman named Christy Groves and now I just want to know if she has cable… or internet access. I just can’t imagine someone thinking that Brooks is a catch after everything he put Vicki (and the RHOC viewers) through. Maybe she’s into those new teeth Vicki gave him. I just don’t get the attraction at all.

Peggy Sulahian Explains Why She Got A Double Mastectomy; Criticizes RHOC Cast Mates For Questioning Her

Peggy Sulahian’s decision to undergo a double mastectomy this past year has stirred up constant questions among the cast of The Real Housewives Of Orange County. Shannon Beador accused Peggy of telling two different stories regarding whether she actually had cancer or not, and just about everyone else was left even more confused when Peggy (and Diko) attempted to explain the specific circumstances surrounding her cancer status.

Peggy wants to set the record straight now, and she also wants her cast mates to back off. Regarding cancer, Peggy says, “I did have it. So when you’re questioning it, you’re still not understanding what I’m telling you.” She further describes the questioning she experienced as more of an “interrogation.”

It feels like Shannon Beador will never live down the comments she made attributing her weight gain to Vicki Gunvalson. It has been addressed during every single interview she’s done this season and last night’s Watch What Happens Live episode was no exception.

Thankfully for Shannon, she had her girl Jenni Pulos sitting right next to her just in case she needed some support…. and to answer some tough questions herself about the drama between Jeff Lewis and Zoila Chavez.

Mercedes

It seems like every cast member on Shahs of Sunset is done with Asa Soltan Rahmati and her vagueness. No one expects someone to share every single bit of her life just because she’s on a reality TV show, but what do we know about Asa? She has been on this show the whole time and all she has done is sell caftans and try to convince us that diamond water is a real thing. No wonder Mercedes “MJ” Javid is lashing out.

The rest of this cast really bares it all. Sure, it takes a lot of poking and prodding for some of them to actual admit the truth – cough, cough Shervin Roohparvar and Mike Shouhed – but they all end up putting themselves out there for the sake of being real for the show… except for Asa. As expected, MJ did not hold back when she was asked about Asa during her latest Watch What Happens Live appearance and Andy Cohen and Jeff Lewis were living for it.
