Donn Gunvalson

Meghan

Although I have not completed an official statistical analysis, the Real Housewives of Orange County seems to have one of the highest divorce rates among Housewife shows. Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador and Gina Kirschenheiter vie for a three-way tie for the messiest OC divorces. Surely a feat that is worthy of some kind of award. Sorry Vicki Gunvalson, your divorce from Donn Gunvalson should have been dirtier. No orange, no divorce crown!

Meghan Edmonds has sadly been added to the list of OC Housewives who have split with their husbands since being on the show. Following a sexting scandal in June in which hubbby Jim Edmonds was caught with his red hot hands on the keyboard, the couple seemed to be working on their marriage. To make matters worse, one of their twin sons was recently diagnosed with a neurological condition. Last week, of course, all hell broke loose at Casa Edmonds and Jim has reportedly filed for divorce, with allegations by Meghan of Jim’s inappropriate relationship with the family nanny swirling about. Now, the nanny is speaking out.

Andy Cohen Says Shane Simpson’s Comments About His Marriage Are “Devastating,” But Emily Simpson Disagrees

The Real Housewives of Orange County has had more than its share of bad marriages. Viewers have been subjected to uncomfortable scenes of marriages falling apart almost since the beginning of the show. Watching RHOC through the years is enough to make someone not only think twice about marriage, but to consider taking a vow of celibacy!

Who could forget the unhappy union of Donn Gunvalson and Vicki Gunvalson? The ugly fights of Tamra Judge and Simon Barney? Kelly Dodd’s eagerness to shed husband Michael Dodd? More recently, Gina Kirschenheiter’s divorce has played out on the show and in the media like a tragic Lifetime movie. Emily Simpson’s marriage has also been the subject of conversation due to hubby Shane Simpson’s disdainful comments towards her on the show. It seems fair to ask, how does Emily really feel about Shane’s sarcastic comments?

Vicki Gunvalson Offers Marital Advice To Emily Simpson: “Keep That Sacred”

When it comes to marriage and divorce on reality TV, no one has more experience than the OG of the OC.

Last week on the Watch What Happens Live After Show, Vicki Gunvalson spoke out about her Real Housewives of Orange County castmate Emily Simpson‘s rocky relationship with husband Shane Simpson, and offered her take on how the clashing couple can get back on track.

Vicki Gunvalson Gives Update On Her Relationship With Ex Donn Gunvalson

The OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, is navigating her way through her first season of being demoted to Friend of status. Coming back for her 14th season must be difficult for the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, but you have to respect the fact that she didn’t just walk away from the show. Vicki probably didn’t want to give up her status as a reality star, despite the embarrassing demotion.

Viewers have watched Vicki through the years–building her business, raising her children Briana Culberson and Michael Wolfsmith and undergoing numerous cosmetic procedures. Not to mention her shady shenanigans with ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers. Although Vicki is now engaged to Steve Lodge, many viewers have maintained a fondness for her ex Donn Gunvalson. So, where does their relationship stand today?

Tamra Judge Dishes Says Lauri Peterson Was Boring & Dishes On Which Housewives She Would & Wouldn’t Like To See Back

We are three episodes in to the Real Housewives of Orange County and the drama is already ramping up. On last week’s show, we watched demoted Vicki Gunvalson chasing Kelly Dodd around Tamra Judge’s house to try to talk out their differences. Or, more likely, to get extra screen time to try to regain her orange.

So far, the season looks to be more promising than the last few. I am liking newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who seems interesting and grounded. We’ll see how long that lasts! Veteran Tamra’s storyline so far has been her new home–and shamelessly planting some seeds for future conflict between her sons Ryan Vieth and Spencer Barney. Of course, Tamra is all about pot-stirring–and creating drama by voicing her opinions on everything. Fortunately–or unfortunately–for viewers, Tamra is willing to do this both on and off the show.

Shannon Beador Receives Big Payout In Divorce From David Beador

The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Shannon Beador’s divorce from David Beador has been going on since 2017. Just like in their marriage, we have watched endless drama play out in their split. David even representing himself instead of hiring an attorney. And the former couple’s ongoing battles over support payments, custody issues, and assets.

Shannon and David finalized their divorce on April 25th and details of the divorce were kept private. Of course, such details have a way of leaking out-and now we have a glimpse into the biggest D-I-V-O-R-C-E in the OC since Vicki Gunvalson split from the long-suffering Donn Gunvalson.

RHOC-Reunion-Shannon-Beador

As far as Real Housewives divorces go, the split between Shannon Beador and David Beador is one of the longest. And ugliest. Certainly trumping her friend Vicki Gunvalson’s split from Donn Gunvalson. And rivaling the years-long divorce drama of her Real Housewives of Orange County bestie Tamra Judge and ex Simon Barney.

Since filing for divorce in December of 2017, the former couple has been battling it out in court. Over everything from spousal support to custody matters related to their three daughters. There currently seems to be no end in sight to the conclusion of the former couple’s divorce negotiations. And now David claims that Shannon’s income is much higher than his. He is asking to have his support payments lowered.

RHOC-Reunion-Vicki-Gunvalson

Didn’t Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Orange County just 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.
