There’s been many a times I’ve suffered second-hand embarrassment while watching a Real Housewives show, but last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County was officially THE WORST. I was literally blowing a metaphorical whistle at the TV as I witnessed Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Tamra Judge‘s dry-humping. Too much tongue is often a problem on Bravo, but usually in a very different way.
Tamra has the brilliant idea to take a train down to Del Mar, fill plastic penises with vodka, and pass out train conductor whistles to celebrate Shannon Beador‘s 55th birthday party. Cause nothing says middle-age like a drunken orgy!
This trip has historical significance for several reasons: 1) Del Mar is Shannon’s old haunt, from back when she was “fun Shannon,” chugging Andre champagne and stalking surfer dudes; 2) It references the train rumor that so plagued Kelly Dodd‘s indefatigable reputation; 3) Meghan King Edmonds is attending for some unknown reason.
Remember when people used to have private disputes? Those days are long gone, we have a new way of feuding now! Thanks, Twitter! Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge could teach a master class in the art of being disrespectful. This could be the reason why she gets along with newly-demoted Vicki Gunvalson. These two can barely remain complimentary with each other, much less anyone else.
Now, what if you’re a business owner with a disparaging personality? People investing their time and money in operating a business want success. The same holds true for Tamra and husband, Eddie Judge with their gym. Many folks not satisfied with their weight will flock to the nearest fitness center to work on shedding pounds, and raising self-confidence. When one embarks on a journey to improvement, sensitivity is often required. It can be embarrassing to admit a problem, even if you want to correct it. This might be a lesson Tamra could use going forward, when people seek her “expert” advice for help. Just ask Emily Simpson.
Real Housewives of Orange County newbie Braunwyn-Windham Burke is full of surprises! Viewers learned that she has a strange and complicated relationship with her mother. Her mother, by the way, is a Cyndi Lauper clone from the mid 80’s.
This OC Housewife is a mom to seven kids, and is married to her college-sweetheart, Sean Burke. She has been nursing for 19 years, which just sounds unbelievable. Braunwyn whipped out a breast at dinner to show her RHOC co-stars that she is still producing milk. Classy.
Am I the only one who clicked “rewind” when during the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County? At some point in the conversation when Braunwyn Windham-Burke and her husband Sean Burke talked about “how pretty” Tamra Judge is, she told him that Tamra and Eddie Judge are just like them because they have threesomes too.
Wait. What? Was I just not paying attention during the previous episode with Braunwyn’s initial threesome confession? When did Tamra say that? Did I just tune out because I didn’t want to hear another conversation about CUT Fitness or her sons’ feud? Or is Braunwyn lying? Or did she divulge some information that Tamra said away from the cameras?
The first season of the Temptation Island reboot was a hit. So, of course, the show is coming back for round 2! Plenty of reality TV stars got together to celebrate at the Temptation Island Season 2 premiere.
White Kanye himself, Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy DJ’ed the party. His girlfriend Raquel Leviss was also on hand to support. Imagine if those two were actually a part of the Temptation Island cast. That would be some must-see TV. The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie Bella also hopped in the DJ booth at the event. Season 1 couple Shari Ligons and Javen Butler showed up to support Season 2. They are the only couple from the first season that is actually still together. They got engaged during the finale. Season 1’s Kaci Campbell was also there among the Real Housewives, members of Bachelor nation, and other reality TV stars. It is probably such a relief for Kaci to not be a part of the drama this time around. She really went through it last season.
Last night most of the Real Housewives Of Orange County finally escaped Arizona. All that so-called healing got left in Arizona though. In fact the only person who seemed to internalize anything was Kelly Dodd, who also got left behind in Arizona.
Kelly visited her hometown of Scottsdale to hopefully reconnect with her family. Fun fact: I went to ASU, and I have been to The Vig countless times! So that was exciting, and this where Kelly and Mary’s similarities end. Because when Kelly lived in Arizona she was getting arrested as a juvenile delinquent for setting the her catholic high school’s field on fire and brawling with old ladies at the Phoenix Open.
Kelly meets up with her BFFs to reminisce about all the times she drunkenly slapped people. Kelly is the very definition of stunted adolescence. She and Jolie live in an unintentionally Freaky Friday world where Jolie is the miniature adult attending board meetings and organizing the meal schedules for the week. If she just took over the finances…
Watching last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County was like getting hit by the Kelly Dodd train. Her emotions were all over the place. I’m not sure if I blame the drinks or the desert, but all’s well that … Well, I don’t want to say “end,” so, “pauses(?) well,” because Kelly and Vicki Gunvalson have forged peace! Tequila for all!
The episode opens with amazing flashbacks. Like I’m watching a Dateline 48 Hours mystery, which is hilarious, because the backwards clock makes me realize it has only been TWENTY-FOUR hours.
What’s even more amusing is that this is a day in the life cycle of Vicki Gunvalson: lie, deny, blame, repeat… Vicki is angry at Kelly for lashing out at her, but Vicki continuously pokes the beehive with her witchy acrylic nail, then cries cancer when she gets stung.
Could another baby be in the cards for Tamra Judge?
On Saturday, September 28, the Real Housewives of Orange County star answered questions from fans on social media. One fan asked about the possibility of expanding her family with husband Eddie Judge.
