Tonight Real Housewives Of Orange County ventures into territory not yet tread upon despite this show’s many, many years of nonsense: OC Fashion Week! (I swear this was made up for Bravo, because not even Alexis Couture made an appearance there!)
The friendship between the Real Housewives of Orange County’s Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson has hit a few bumps in the road this season. Gina, whose life has been a disastrous mess of DUI and divorce issues, does not think Emily has been supportive enough of her deep well of despair. Emily was upset with Gina for not attending her R-rated Las Vegas dance debut.
Matters came to a head between the two pals when a planned date between Gina and Shane Simpson’s cousin fell through, as he reportedly backed off after suffering a toe(!) injury. Or maybe Gina’s Mystery Date just Googled her and wisely ran for the hills of the OC. Gina, acting like a jilted bride, took great personal offense to being stood up, wondering if Emily had set her up to embarrass her. Orange County pot-stirring queen Tamra Judge was only too happy to spread gossip about the situation, which is her favorite pastime.
Her divorce from her ex, Matt Kirschenheiter, will be finalized on December 31. This season, RHOC viewers also saw Gina confess to her
supposed bestie, Emily Simpson, that Matt had cheated on her. Gina also alleged that Matt physically assaulted her.
It’s time to practice the delicate art of eye-rolling! We are all experts in this skill after last week’s Real Housewives of Orange County episode. I will never not be haunted by the things we saw. Eternally tortured Gina Kirschenheiter had some thoughts on what happened between newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Tamra Judge. Don’t we all…
Gina has been in the thick of it this season. Her relationship with Emily Simpson has taken a hard left and she is still struggling in the aftermath of her DUI arrest. It also looks like Gina has definitely picked a side. She and Tamra have become thick as thieves, which has many viewers shaking their heads. Now Gina wants to talk about the incident that had many of us running for therapy. As a surprise to no one, Gina thinks the shocking public display of
anything but affection is a result of Braunwyn’s adventures in exaggeration.
In the midst of their rift-causing feud this season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, the Long Island transplant is taking aim at her BFF’s husband Shane Simpson — and she didn’t mince words when it came to what she thinks of the RHOC villain’s trademark sarcastic nature.
Watching the Real Housewives of Orange County this week made me a little nostalgic for Housewives days gone by. You remember–when the show was focused on women who lived in beautiful homes, drove fancy cars, took dream trips and shopped for high end clothing and jewelry. Sure, some of it was all smoke and mirrors and a few of the ladies were one credit card transaction ahead of financial disaster, but the show usually delivered as promised.
Somehow, in the intervening years, everything changed. Fights became routine. Screaming came to be the preferred method of communication. Damaging gossip had the potential to ruin lives. Some cast members like Heather Dubrow managed to mostly stay above the fray, but many ladies were only too happy to wallow in the mud. Which leads us to this week’s episode. Married Housewives Tamra Judge and Braunwyn Windham-Burke in a disturbing public make out session. Usually prudish Shannon Beador exchanging spit with a random stranger. How did this all come to be?
At Shannon Beador‘s hot mess express-themed birthday party, the RHOC newbie swapped saliva with the show’s reigning vet at the dinner table before things got even more NSFW in a banquette next to the dance floor. In a new interview, Braunwyn is claiming she had no idea the cameras caught her steamy hook-up with Tamra. However, some of her cast mates aren’t so sure they buy into the naïveté.
Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter have been at each other’s throats the past few weeks on The Real Housewives of Orange County. First, the tension over Gina bailing on Emily’s trip to Las Vegas (on account of her DUI) led to a major blow-up between the besties on the cast trip to Miraval. Then, the pair fought again at Shannon Beador‘s hot mess express-themed birthday party over Em’s disastrous attempt at setting her pal up on a date with her husband’s not-quite-single cousin.
Got all that? Honestly, me neither. However, Emily thinks she understands the root of why exactly her erstwhile BFF has been picking fights with her this season.
