Your favorite reality stars were out and about this week and of course they documented it all for social media.
Shockingly, Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador posted a photo with soon-to-be-ex David Beador and their daughter after they announced their intent to divorce. Stassi Schroeder shared a picture from her trip to Paris. Kelly Dodd hung out with Chef Ben Robinson. Luann de Lesseps rocked braids and hung out with RHONY alum Kelly Bensimon for a mirror selfie. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Camille Grammer held her own in Washington, DC.
The reality TV curse strikes again. David Beador and Shannon Beador have separated after 17 years of marriage.
Shannon shared the news with her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars today while filming the season 12 reunion. “It’s heartbreaking for me and my daughters that this is the road that had to be taken but it’s the only way,” Shannon told People. “I felt alone in my marriage. You can do what you can to keep your family together, but you have to have willing parties. You need two people to make a marriage work, and that wasn’t happening in our relationship.”
Did you know that Peggy Sulahian is Armenian? Just in case you didn’t catch it, she made sure to mention it for the 984,434,153th time during the last Real Housewives of Orange County episode that the fans were subjected to watching. This season has been a total snooze fest and focusing the most recent episode around Peggy’s wedding anniversary party wasn’t helping manners.
SOS! SOS! When are the cast vacation episodes airing? This show is in desperate need of some excitement this season. Instead we had to watch Peggy and Diko Sulahian celebrating a twenty two year wedding anniversary. Good for them, but the only semi-interesting thing that happened during this episode was Diko confronting Shannon Beador about something her husband David Beador said.
Someone convince me that this is not the worst Real Housewives of Orange County season yet. Aside from Shannon Beador gloriously throwing that plate full of food, nothing has happened. Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge met up during the last episode and they didn’t make up. They barely even argued. Basically they just wasted my time. No one even uttered a gif-worthy line.
Then there’s Peggy Sulahian and her husband Diko Sulahian forcing us to celebrate a 22nd wedding anniversary. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great that they have been able to make it work for so long and I actually do see the love between them, but who has a party for twenty two years of anything? Twenty years? Makes sense. Twenty five years? Even better. But twenty two? That’s almost as ridiculous a Ramona Singer having a full on vow renewal for her seventeenth wedding anniversary-a couple years before filing for divorce.
It finally happened: Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson sat down for a one-on-one conversation after avoiding each other all season on Real Housewives of Orange County. Unfortunately for the fans, it was very anticlimactic. Vicki accused Tamra’s husband Eddie Judge of only being with her to open a up a gym and continued to bring up old rumors. Tamra calmly walked away and that was it.
Well, that was it for a minute. Now that the episode has aired (and the fans have reacted on social media), Tamra is sharing her thoughts on her (attempt at) lunch with Vicki and Peggy Sulahian’s husband Diko Sulahian confronting Shannon Beador at their anniversary party.
After a tough start during her first season Kelly Dodd has truly turned things around on Real Housewives of Orange County. She’s giving us the meme and gif-worthy arguments that we live for, but she’s not holding any long grudges. She has struck the perfect Housewife balance and she’s honestly the only one in this cast who has.
Everyone else refuses to interact with each other which makes it feel like I’m watching seven different TV shows spread out over an hour every Monday night. This was supposed to be the lead-in show for Dallas and the Texas women are blowing the OC out of the water this year. Thankfully they’re saving Monday night for the Housewives viewers. But anyway, this season is horrible aside from Kelly’s contributions. Kelly is the only one who is socializing with every other cast member, she brings it with her own personal story lines, and her quotes. I never in a million years thought I would say this, but Kelly is the only reason this season is worth watching. I hope they turn things around, but they’ve spent every episode so far ignoring each other and talking about things that happened two seasons ago. Move on or get off the show.
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.
Why is Real Housewives of Orange County a medical drama all of a sudden? From suspicions about cancer diagnoses to vaginal rejuvenation to vasectomies to colonics, this season is just all about the medical procedures… and it is a total snooze fest. What happened to the good old days of whooping it up at the bar and throwing wine in someone’s face? Let’s get back to things like that. Please.
The fixation with Peggy Sulahian’s mastectomy is still very much a thing and the RHOC ladies- and men- are asking a lot of questions about it.
