Real Housewives Of Orange County RHOC Gina Kirschenheiter

Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s family life is eclipsing the current season of Real Housewives of Orange County. She has been very open about her alcoholism and its effects on her husband Sean Burke and her manipulative, thirsty, toxic mother Dr. Deb.

Braunwyn has also said that she has another love interest outside of her marriage, which Sean is, apparently cool with. Oh, and she and Sean aren’t even living together these days. There is a lot to unpack there, so it’s interesting how Braunwyn had found the time to diss Gina Kirschenheiter for her love life, specifically Gina’s decision to move in with Travis Mullen six months into their relationship and eight months after her split from Matt Kirschenheiter. As the viewers have seen, Gina, Matt, and all of their kids (six of them) are living in a three-bedroom condo together.

RHOC-Reunion-Tamra-Judge

If you are not a fan of Tamra Judge, I encourage you to enjoy the remainder of the current Real Housewives of Orange County season. Tamra was unceremoniously let go from the show when she was offered a small role to “wrap up” her storyline and exit with dignity. Tamra denied the offer, because, what is dignity?

It’s no secret both Tamra and Vicki Gunvalson are upset RHOC went on without them. The alums have taken multiple shots at current cast members and seem to think the show will have no content in their absence. It is also not exactly classified information that Vicki and Tamra will do anything and everything to come back. Now Tamra throws gasoline on the fire that feeds the rumors of her return, but don’t tell the OG of the OC.

Golly, those are some strong words coming from someone who lied about cancer, huh? Vicki Gunvalson might have some residual feelings about being fired from Real Housewives of Orange County. She and her co-dependent partner in crime, Tamra Judge are gone, but not forgotten.

Vicki is supposed to be enjoying a quieter life. Less stress, perhaps planning a wedding. But Vicki does not go away without a fight, and she is in the fight of her life. After coming for the still-employed Shannon STORMS Beador and lamenting the demise of Tres Amigas (again), she turned her attack on Kelly Dodd. Emily Simpson made the error of having a brief thought about Vicki, which triggered her Google Alerts. Now Vicki turns her attack on Emily. I guess Gina Kirschenheiter hasn’t made her mad yet.

Braunwyn Gina

Both Gina Kirschenheiter and Braunwyn Windham-Burke spent the last Real Housewives of Orange County season sucking up to Tamra Judge. And that’s where the similarities end. Gina joined Tamra to bash her “close” friend Emily Simpson multiple times and Tamra made out with Braunwyn many times.

During the Season 15 premiere episode, Braunwyn showed off new home, which includes a nightclub. Then, Gina showed us her three-bedroom condo that she shares with her new boyfriend Travis Mullen and all six of their kids. The contrast was very much apparent. During the second episode, Gina took shots with Emily and drunk dialed Braunwyn. Meanwhile, Braunwyn continued to focus on her sobriety. These two seem to be on the opposite page most of the time. Braunwyn brushes her hair and Gina has ratty, visibly extensions. I can go on and on, but I’m a nobody. Let’s see what Braunwyn has to say about her frenemy Gina.

Real Housewives Of Orange County Tamra Judge Vicki Gunvalson

Technically, Tamra Judge is not a cast member on the current Real Housewives of Orange County season, but she might as well be. She has been mentioned multiple times throughout the season’s first two episodes.

Kelly Dodd and Emily Simpson made many jokes about the demise of the Tres Amigas. Braunwyn Windham-Burke revealed that her mom Dr. Deb outed her alcoholism to Tamra to get back at Braunwyn for comments Braunwyn made about Deb’s terrible parenting during her first season. Gina Kirschenheiter concocted a storyline based on a one-off conversation with Tamra about a text Sean Burke sent her last season. No one, to my knowledge has said Vicki Gunvalson’s name, other than obviously including her in the mention of the “Tres Amigas,” but Vicki is acting like she’s mad about the many mentions she thinks she’s getting.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke Real Housewives Of Orange County

Hello Real Housewives of Orange County fans! We’re two weeks into the seismic change that is this year in the OC and I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be recapping the lives of the First Ladies of Bravo for the remainder of Season 15! I’m an OG RHOC fan — I’ve been watching since Season 1, Episode 1. That was all the way back in 2005 when I’d sneak Bravo on the TV in my parents’ room, daydreaming about life behind the tony gates of Coto de Caza. Well, that and crushing hard on Shane Keough while stressing about whether Lauri Waring Peterson would ever live the OC lifestyle again. Of course, none of the women currently on the show were even a twinkle in Andy Cohen‘s eye at that point. And to be frank, I had my fair share of reservations going into the season because of that.

Could RHOC survive without Vicki Gunvalson? What about Tamra Judge? As a resident Housewives expert, I’ve always been an ardent believer that each city in the franchise needs an OG to act as anchor to the show’s history. So no matter how many ‘Wives came and went through Bravo’s revolving door, there would always be someone who’d been there from the very beginning. And whether I loved or hated them in any given season, I truly expected to watch Vicki and Tamra whooping it up in a retirement community thirty years from now for Season 45.

What can you say about Real Housewives of Orange County. Well, quite a lot this season. Gone are the days of Vicki Gunvalson whooping it up and peeing on beds. We said good-bye to Tamra Judge, though Tamra has not said good-bye to us. Never fear, viewers have a new cast member to focus on! Elizabeth Vargas joined the show and brought along her enormous divorce settlement. Shannon STORMS Beador, Kelly Dodd, the lovable Emily Simpson, and Gina Kirschenheiter remain to teach us all what not to do in life.

This season appears to revolve around Braunwyn Windham-Burke and her battle with alcohol, but we cannot forget what happened last year. Gina and ex-husband Matt Kirschenheiter went through some very hard times. “Hard times” is a polite way of saying Matt lost his shit and threatened to kill Gina while her kids were asleep. That stunt got Matt some jail time and a restraining order. Over 12 months out from the fight, the restraining order still stands. Now Gina gives an update on where she and Matt are with their relationship, and what changes have been made.

Tamra Judge Kelly

Tamra Judge has been talking about whether or not she would return to Real Housewives of Orange County on every single platform possible, as if she actually made the choice not to be on the show. They only offered a three-episode stint and she didn’t take it.

She did not “decide” to quit the show. They didn’t want her to have a full-time role or even a part-time role for the whole season, so Tamra talking about the conditions that would have to be in place for her to “decide” to return is just a total joke.
