Braunwyn Windham-Burke joined Real Housewives of Orange County last season, and she was full of surprises! We learned that Braunwyn has a very complicated relationship with her mother, Cyndi-Lauper look-alike Dr. Deb. Braunwyn revealed that she and her husband, Sean Burke, occasionally have threesomes. And Braunwyn really liked making out with Tamra Judge.
After having seven children, Braunwyn threw a raunchy lactation party to celebrate the end of her days nursing kids. Of course, all of this behavior caused “OG” Vicki Gunvalson to have an epic meltdown at the RHOC reunion, where she called the choices that Braunwyn made “disgusting” and accused her of ruining the franchise. Of course, Braunwyn never got drunk and peed on someone’s bed. Stay classy, Vicki.
The upcoming Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County is going to be very different. Gone are two of the tres amigas. Last season, the “OG of the OC,” Vicki Gunvalson, was demoted to be a Friend of the Housewives. After having a melt-down during the reunion, she quit after she learned that she would not be getting her orange back. But don’t worry–Vicki is getting her own podcast.
Tamra Judge also walked away after she was only offered three episodes to complete her storyline. That is less than a demotion. Ouch! Now there is only one amiga left–Shannon Beador. And if Shannon returns, it looks like she will be spending a lot of time with Kelly Dodd.
Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke made a thirsty splash last season as a freshman housewife. Seven children. Claims of occasional swinging with her statement necklace wearing hubby Sean Burke. Making out with Tamra Judge. And having an odd mother, Dr. Deb, whom Braunwyn revealed she was taking a break from at the reunion. Although Braunwyn was not always understandable or relatable, she was often memorable.
Braunwyn tried to fit in with the other OC ladies, but struggled to bond with some of her co-stars. Vicki Gunvalson found her behavior scandalous. Braunwyn even annoyed annoying Gina Kirschenheiter. Recently, Braunwyn revealed she will have a special something in common with many of her co-stars if she returns for a second season. Braunwyn has joined the exclusive OC Housewife Plastic Surgery Club.
Finally we have reached the end of the line with Real Housewives Of Orange County. It has been a long and confusing season of many Housewives I do not particularly like. Tamra Judge, I am looking at you. Furthermore I am so thankful I will no longer have to type Brauwnyn Windham-Burke‘s exhausting name, as exhausting as the woman herself, every week. Ugh.
Among the many revelations from part 3 of the reunion, we learned that skanky behavior has always been a cornerstone of the show’s foundation and Andy Cohen will not have you argue it any other way. Boobs out, girls!
We open with Vicki Gunvalson accusing Braunwyn of violating the show’s moral compass, causing Vicki to lose 2 clients. I’m sorry, so dating cancer scamming Brooks Ayers meets Vici’s clients “moral compass”? Andy reminds Vicki that she has flashed her tits at the dinner table, given fake blow jobs (in addition to plenty of low blows) and participated in the Naked Wasted episode with Gretchen Rossi, so why the revisionist history??
OK, so once again rolling in super tardy with a recap. This time for part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Sorry Vicki Gunvalson – I respect Christmas more than I respect you!
Legit question, though: Vicki wasn’t even a ‘Housewife’ this season, yet she is the star of this reunion? There she is, sitting in the supremo spot next to Andy Cohen, and at this point 3/4 of the reunion has been dedicated to dissecting Vicki’s antics and her fights on the show.
Part 2 was all about Vicki’s failed friendship with Kelly Dodd, and once again they promised to bury the hatchet
in each other’s backs. First, though, they rehash the train rumor, the cocaine allegation, the throw mama down the stairs off a train tale, the broken hand in a bar con-woman catfight… You know, all the classics!
It’s hard to believe we are at the end of season 14 of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Some highlights of the season for me were getting to know Emily Simpson a little better and Gina Kirschenheiter chasing after a dramatic Tamra Judge in the finale. Plus Kelly Dodd taking no prisoners on the cast trip to Key West–and on Part 1 of the reunion. And dare I say, Vicki Gunvalson’s demotion?
Lowlights include Tamra and Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s make out session, Dr. Deb’s tough love maternal instincts and some of the Tres Amigas’ escapades. Kelly and the Amigas were at odds most of the season over everything from Shannon Beador’s Miraval retreat gonging to the ugly rumors spread about Kelly. Over-the-top retaliation by Kelly, including inserting herself in the Jim Bellino lawsuit fueled the feud. Will the Amigas and Kelly ever find their way back to each other? Shannon recently made it clear that she and Kelly are still on the outs.
Wow – last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion was vicious on a level I haven’t seen since the heyday of Real Housewives Of New Jersey!
Vicki Gunvalson had a full-fledged meltdown, was stripped bare, and we were left with the skeletal remains of her original face. It continues in Part 2! Vicki’s entire identity is wrapped up in RHOC so when threatened with that loss, her true self came skulking out with a vengeance. Think Golom chasing the golden ring. I gotta say – I sort of love it. Part 1 of this trilogy, it was the Tres Amigas vs Kelly Dodd, with a little bit of Emily and Gina by their side. And it looks like Part 2 goes even darker.
First of all for the outfits, everyone looked awful. I actually thought Vicki and Emily Simpson, in their velvet dresses looked the best, but Emily’s makeup looked like she let Shane apply it as part of some trust therapy session. Emily and Shane are the new David and Shannon Beador. ‘Studying for the bar’ is Shane’s version of an affair, being that he’s Mormon and all. He’s so checked out of that marriage he might as well be in Italy frolicking naked in the forrest with his new girlfriend. Don’t forget the sock!
