Real Housewives of Orange County has been around a LONG time. Vicki Gunvalson is the longest running cast member of RHOC. Close behind her is frenemy Tamra Judge. When they were fired, it was a bit of a shock to viewers. To them? It was a huge shock, considering these dos amigas can’t stop talking about the show.
Regardless of their shock and longevity on RHOC, the show went on this week. We met Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, who popped a cork in Braunwyn Windham Burkes’ face. We watched Kelly Dodd ride a ferris wheel and sexually harass an 18-year-old. Of course, Shannon Beador was doing her usual “I’m so happy” dance because it’s the first episode. Gina Kirschenheiter is now living in a townhome (to Shannon’s HORROR!) and Emily Simpson is just feeling great. Not only because of her new hip, but because Tamra and Vicki are gone!
Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County premiered last night. Aside from Kelly Dodd being on screen, it wasn’t terrible. We saw a lot of new beginnings for these women, which do not include Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson. Shannon Beador and Gina Kirschenheiter have new homes, new men, and new almost step-kids. Kelly has (new husband) Rick Levanthal. Newbie Elizabeth Lyn Vargas has that billionaire divorce money, and Emily Simpson has a new hip and a wimp husband who just wants sex all the time!
All seems to be going very well for the RHOC ladies. Except for maybe Braunwyn Windham Burke. She dropped a bombshell last night. In her conversation with Emily, Braunwyn admitted to being an alcoholic. It was a very real moment to say the least. But Shannon might not use the world “real” to describe Braunwyn.
Are you guys ready for Real Housewives of Orange County? They filmed this season during a pandemic, y’all! They came to play and not even Kelly Dodd’s idiotic coronavirus comments could derail this train. So let’s dive in and see what these over-ripe oranges are up to.
We open up with a really ominous beach scene because what is more ominous than Newport Beach. Newport Beach, new cast members, new beginnings, new hips for Emily Simpson. New new new. Everything that you want to see in a fresh season of Real Housewives. And not a Vicki Gunvalson or Tamra Judge in sight.
Even though Real Housewives is technically a reality TV show, we don’t see anyone’s true reality. Of course, it’s impossible to show the entirety of anyone’s life. However, some of these Housewives sure do hide a lot. And by “a lot” I mean lawsuits on lawsuits on lawsuits.
But, aside from legal issues the women are trying to hide, what else are they trying to keep from the show? Well, apparently, there’s a West Coast Housewife who’s trying hard to hide her husband’s affair.
Like it or not, Real Housewives of Orange County will be back with new episodes soon. This will be the first Vicki Gunvalson-free season. Tamra Judge is out as well.
Joining Kelly Dodd, Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke is Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, a friend of Kelly’s. Let’s take a look at the Season 15 Real Housewives of Orange County taglines.
What a toxic mess The Real Housewives of Orange County has become. The new season is rapidly approaching, and it’s already stirring up controversy. Kelly Dodd has been under fire recently for her comments regarding coronavirus and the ongoing pandemic. Sometimes it borders on plain scary. Hopefully, people aren’t turning to Kelly for advice on how to handle this.
Newcomer Elizabeth Lyn Vargas had all the potential in the world to be a decent Housewife. However, all of that is already out the window. Sure, Kelly is getting dragged daily for her ignorant comments, but Elizabeth should have sat this one out. Stepping in to the fire that is defending Kelly is the worst possible idea for the freshman Housewife. Instead of garnering fan support, they’re going to want her gone. Pandora’s box is officially open.
Things aren’t always as they appear, especially on reality TV. Sometimes, a person seems like she’s happily married. And, then, all of a sudden, there’s a divorce filing in the news.
Word on the street, and by “street” I mean “according to a blind item on Instagram” a Real Housewife recently separated from her husband. As the term “blind item” suggests, no specific names were mentioned, but there were plenty of hints to narrow things down.
Get ready for Real Housewives of Orange County! The Season 15 trailer dropped this morning and there’s a lot of Shannon Beador shrieking, Kelly Dodd yelling, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke crying. Just like last season. Only now we’re not seeing Tamra BarneyJudge flash her enhancements or hearing Vicki Gunvalson woo-hoo. I get that you’ll come for me in the comments, but I kind of missed seeing them in the trailer.
We also know that Emily Simpson is back. She was crying about something in the trailer – I’m assuming her small husband. We also got our first glimpse of new RHOC housewife Elizabeth Lyn Vargas. I laughed out loud because I was picturing Elizabeth Vargas the former 20/20 news anchor this whole time. Yeah, they’re not the same. Anyways, it’s the same old stuff, but it does look like Gina Kirschenheiter has a surprise in store for us this season.
