If you crammed any more drama, hijinks, meltdowns, and hysterias (and medical issues!) into this episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County I think it would explode a la Kelly Dodd after 2 cocktails and exposure to a snarky meme. Things would just come flying out, every which way, and the only thing that would be left standing amid the rubble would be Tamra Judge and the two giant inflatable jugs she has strapped to her chest as a bullet-proof vest/getaway life raft.
I literally can’t even begin to dissect all the switching animosities and loyalties, but all I have to say is Tamra is masterful at manipulating these women in a tizzy of stupidity. And Kyle Richards thinks Lisa Vanderpump plays chess…
The Real Housewives of Orange County episode featuring Tamra Judge’s adult son in a therapy session has spawned a lot of controversy. Ryan Vieth doesn’t have the best reputation in reality television, but to be fair, neither does his mother. Fans of the show have watched Ryan go from the tortured stepkid of Simon Barney who didn’t want a desk job to a somewhat troubled father of one, who still doesn’t want a desk job.
There has never been a great deal of sympathy for Ryan, but the public tends to root for someone who fights to change their situation instead of complaining how they got there. Ryan has also displayed some less than acceptable behavior towards the mother of his child. In addition to his relationship woes, Ryan is very vocal about his political stance, which is a polarizing subject on most occasions. Now Tamra’s
resident sycophant co-star Gina Kirschenheiter shares her thoughts on Ryan and wants viewers to know he is a pretty good guy.
This season of Real Housewives of Orange County was tough for Emily Simpson. First, she struggled to hold her household together while she worked. Where was her husband, Shane “Lil Bitch” Simpson?
He was holed up in a hotel to study for the California Bar exam and was unavailable to his family. Shane couldn’t even touch base by phone. He failed that test in February and re-took it in July.
You guys I’m sorry – I am having Thanksgiving fever and 15 houseguests, and I just cannot get it together with the Real Housewives Of Orange County nonsense today.
Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd are like your mother and your mother-in-law at the same holiday dinner. They’re not gonna speak or look at each other. But, they are going to viciously jab from all corners until it all comes bubbling to the surface over the way to make gravy or something.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke invited all the women to Miami so they can understand her better. Apparently, we’re now defining our personalities by cities, so Braunwyn is a Miami person. In Miami, she liked having sex with her husband, clubbed constantly, and wore skanky clothes to the grocery store. Whereas in Orange County, Braunwyn has to hide her wild side? I don’t get it… How was Braunwyn doing all this partying in between 52 pregnancies, nursing 19 babies, and also well, ostensibly, parenting? We don’t ever get a clear answer about why they left Miami, just like we don’t get a clear answer about why this is the sad-sack trip RHOC got this season. I blame Tamra because I blame her for everything.
Tamra Judge’s third
victim husband, Eddie Judge spent a good part of last year struggling with medical issues. The Real Housewives of Orange County spouse not only had to contend with his wife’s winning personality, he also battled AFib and wound up having several surgical procedures. Or maybe Eddie’s body was stressed at having to constantly go high when Tamra was inevitably going as low as humanly possible. That’s our Tammy Sue!
Eddie has kind of remained in the background so far this season. Which, if we’re being honest, is the safest place to be in this Caligula-based nightmare no one asked for. When Ed finally had something to say, it caused quite a stir. His comments regarding Ryan Vieth’s emotional state were met with backlash by
maybe 3 people viewers after the episode aired. Now Eddie is coming to his own defense and sharing more startling thoughts. The big guys at Bravo might not be happy with this one…
Well, if there’s one thing a Housewives show doesn’t need more celebration of it’s boobs, although I think Real Housewives Of Orange County gave us the first itineration of celebrating boobs that weren’t just used for sex appeal… that is until Braunwyn Windham-Burke whipped hers out at her No More Nursing fiesta.
The theme of this party made absolutely no sense. It was a boobs bacchanalia with strippers, a nipple cake, and dildos on the wall, but Brauwnyn called it a “weaning party” meant to celebrate the end of nursing after 18 years.
Braunwyn’s entire life is reliving the youth she never got to experience, which is ironic only in that Dr. Deb‘s desperation to capture a thwarted youth is the sole reason why Braunwyn resents and hates her mother. So maybe Braunwyn will go on to have an illustrious career as a plastic surgeon specializing in mommy makeover boob jobs? I just can’t with this exhausting woman and her constant need to show off as the hot, fun mom. Enough already!
The last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County featured a heavy storyline for Tamra Judge and her oldest son Ryan Vieth. They brought the cameras into his therapy session, where Ryan complained about his childhood and how those problems still affect his life today.
During the episode, Tamra admitted that her “biggest fear” is that “one day Ryan might commit suicide.” Tamra was sympathetic, but her husband, Eddie Judge, was far from it. Normally, Eddie does what he can to not make waves. However, Real Housewives of Orange County viewers were up in arms over the comments he made about Ryan “not being a man” because he’s affected by his childhood trauma.
Real Housewives Of Orange County is all about mommy issues this season, isn’t it? From the women having them with their own mothers (Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke) to having them with their own children (Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador), to being questionable mothers themselves (almost everyone).
Last night Shannon and Braunwyn tried to navigate sending children to college, Tamra sent Ryan Vieth to counseling, and all that was like blah, blah, blah… yada, yada, yada because the truly horrific, scarring, awfulness was the true exposure of just what a terrible person Tamra is. So much so that I actually feel bad for Racist Ryan.
Tamra has just returned from this truly life-altering and earth-shattering vacation in Scottsdale, AZ where she learned a pivotal message about being the leader of the mean girls: you can never turn your back – not even for a day. Not even for a hike with your husband. In Tamra’s absence, she’s gotten a slew of angry text messages from Kelly, and Shannon is basically giving her the silent treatment.
