Emily Simpson defends her marriage

A Real Housewives reunion is a major undertaking. It is usually shown in multiple episodes and they film for an entire day. Real Housewives of Orange County newbie Emily Simpson recently admitted that she’s taking her first reunion very seriously and she’s getting very prepared.

Emily has a binder full of notes on every single Housewife and she has it out for one of her costars in particular: Tamra Judge.

Shannon in Jamaica

The Real Housewives Of Orange County are in Jamaica! Whip out the Red Stripe, culturally insensitive dreadlocks hats, and Shannon Beador‘s giant suitcase full of complaints and neurosis. Who’s excited!?

The women arrive at the airport at 4:15 am, but at approximately 6am (OK it was probably the day the before) Shannon calls Tamra Judge to complain that she’s too fat to fit into anything she owns so she’s not bringing a bathing suit or tank tops. To a tropical island. Tamra’s advice: “Stop Eating!” Shannon must’ve found something to fit – Kyle Richards Kaftan Kollection? – because a couple hours later, after being awake all night, Shannon showed up at the airport with two enormous bags. At least one of those bags was filled with a feng shui kit, essential oils, 873 types of vitamins, several different types of cleansing machines, plus all of Shannon’s 83957295798476 anxieties, animosities, and insecurities – including a framed photo of David snarfing tequila chips.

Gina cries over getting divorced

If it were up to Shannon Beador, Real Housewives of Orange County would solely focus on her, Kelly Dodd, Tamra Judge, and Vicki Gunvalson. She’s not here for the new girls, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson.

Sure they’ve brought her into some drama, but haven’t her best friends in this cast done way worse to her? Shannon wants nothing to do with Emily and Gina, citing her busy schedule as her top reason. Aren’t they all busy? They’re all mothers. They’re all cast members on the same show. They all have their side businesses and endorsement deals. Being busy with an interesting life is essentially a requirement to become a Real Housewife, isn’t it?

Tamra Judge

Tamra Judge puts the “real” in Real Housewives of Orange County. Even she has to admit that Season 13 hasn’t been the show’s most exciting season- at least at this point. Sure Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson got into that argument about the double dates and Kelly got into a screaming match with both Emily Simpson and her husband Shane Simpson, but pretty much nothing else happened all season.

On top of that, with Emily and Gina Kirschenheiter joining the show as new Housewives, it’s been a pretty tough transition. They have spent so much time “introducing” them to the viewers and not enough time showing them as integrated members of the group. Short story long, there just hasn’t been enough drama. Thankfully Tamra promises that things are going to heat up.

Instagram Roundup: Teresa Giudice, Stassi Schroeder, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, & More!

Even without an official announcement, it’s so obvious  that the Real Housewives of New York cast is filming Season 11 right now. Sure, they usually do film the season during the same time frame each year, but the true indication that Season 11 is in progress are all the recent photos of the cast getting together. Dorinda Medley, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, and Tinsley Mortimer shared photos from the Berkshires. Does this mean we get two different Berkshires trips next season? Please don’t tell me they swapped out Christmas for random fall fun. We NEED a Berkshires Christmas episode- or three.

Shannon Beador is waiting for

Unfortunately for Shannon Beador, this is another Real Housewives of Orange County season when she’s not getting along with the new girl. However, there are two new Housewives this time around- Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter– and they are both at odds with Shannon.

Shannon is all about her post-divorce snapback, her line of food at QVC, and her children. Meanwhile, Emily and Gina are upset that Shannon has no interest in being friends with them. Is Shannon being cold to them? Or are they just forgetting about the drama that Gina brought Shannon into? Is it possible that they’re all right/wrong on some level? Not in Shannon’s eyes. She is adamant that she just doesn’t have the time to acknowledge Gina and Emily- even though that is pretty much what she has to do as a cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County.

Shannon Beador is waiting for

Having Shannon Beador in a scene with a new cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County is a guarantee for drama. Shannon is notorious for not getting along with the new girls on the show. This season there are two new cast members- Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter– for Shannon to be at odds with or just ignore until the come at her.

Gina cries over getting divorced

As the only remaining OG cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson has seen plenty of Housewives come and go. So if anyone has a lot of experiencing judging new Housewives it’s her.

Gina Kirschenheiter is upset that Shannon Beador does not want to be friends with her. The other new Housewife Emily Simpson’s latest storyline is her desire to have a daughter with her husband Shane Simpson, who does not seem to be on board. At all.
