Gina Kirschenheiter has been working overtime, y’all. She functions as a single mom of three but, is the Real Housewives of Orange County star buckling under pressure? 2019 started on a rough note for Gina and didn’t really improve. January found the Housewife cited for blowing through a stop sign. In February, Gina was busted for a DUI and arrested. But her troubles didn’t stop there. As Tamra Judge hailed Gina the “rockstar” of the current season, her personal life kept going downhill. Becoming a regular poster child for Uber, Gina was ticketed once again in February for using her cell phone while driving. After Gina managed to skip court for the DUI charges, a warrant for her arrest was issued.
Gina ultimately pled guilty for driving under the influence and avoided jail time. During these numerous traffic violations, Gina was maybe, possibly, conceivably making headway in her marriage. Matt Kirschenheiter was showing up all over Gina’s social media and it looked like the couple was repairing their troubled relationship. Unfortunately, the journey to reconciliation wound up being the journey to jail for Matt. As the fallout continues, Gina is now making demands of her estranged husband and, hopefully, making better decisions for herself.
Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd were enemies right from the jump. Kelly referred to Shannon’s beloved USC as the University of Spoiled Children and she was immediately on Shannon’s bad side.
It got ugly from there with plates thrown and Mrs. Roper comparisons. Then, the two of them bonded when they split from their husbands and they’ve provided fun TV (and Instagram Stories) ever since. Well, actually those Instagram Stories stopped and that’s because they’re currently on the outs.
Well, we made it through the first episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County. It was great catching up with all the ladies. Many of the cast members have had significant life changes since last season. Kelly Dodd has a new plastic surgeon boyfriend Brian Reagan–and some recent cosmetic enhancements. Tamra Judge has a new house. Gina Kirschenheiter also has a new house–and unfortunately, a new DUI. Is a bail bond an appropriate housewarming gift? Just asking!
Shannon Beador–well, she has a whole new attitude. After several seasons of divorce drama with ex David Beador, formerly bitter Shannon seems lighter–both in the weight she has worked hard to lose–and in spirit. From the looks of the season trailer, Fun Shannon has officially landed in Orange County. Shannon might be up for all sorts of merriment these days, but she thinks one of her co-stars is a bit of a downer.
Last night was the premiere of Real Housewives Of Orange County Season 14, aka a year without Vicki Gunvalson; a year of living OG-less. We know Vicki will show up eventually, but it’s almost like a mirage that we got through an entire episode with nary a “Whoop It Up!” or a “Woo Hoo!” I sort of have the vapors and need to lie down … in a blissful sleep of fulfilled dreams.
I’ve been saying for years that Real Housewives Of Orange County needs to do a casting shake-up, and break the stranglehold of Vicki and Tamra Judge, whose dysfunctional frienemyship has dominated in a really detrimental way. Personally, I think Tamra would’ve been the one to fire since she is always playing producer and a large part of her antics are purely ‘for the show.’ Vicki is too clueless and lacking in self-awareness to self-produce, which makes for more authentic everything. I mean, this is a woman who gave us Brooks Ayers faking cancer on national television whereas Tamra has given us… facelifts and Ryan Vieth? Maybe next season they should rotate in Vicki full-time, but drop Tamra? Gotta test all the variables of your experiment, right?!
For now, see you on the flip side, Vicks!
It’s do or die for the Real Housewives of Orange County ladies this season. The past couple seasons have been major snoozefests. Now, they really need to come through. Tonight, RHOC is back for Season 14.
As we’ve all heard, this is the first season Vicki Gunvalson will not be a full-time cast member. This means that the other ladies have to bring it.
It is hard to believe, but it is almost time for the Real Housewives of Orange County to return! Of course, the big casting news this year was that OC OG Vicki Gunvalson had been demoted to Friend of status. Everyone from last season is returning and one new cast member has been added.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke is the newest lady to receive an orange, which probably had to be pried out of Vicki’s clutching hand! So far, we know Braunwyn is married, a mother of seven and a mommy blogger. She recently shared more about herself and her role in the upcoming season. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the new addition and what she will add to RHOC.
Can you believe we are less than a week away from the premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County? If the show’s trailer is any indication, we are in for a good season. The last few years of RHOC have been a bit lackluster, so I am hopeful that the new season will be better.
Of course, all the ladies are returning, which has generally not been the case with RHOC. Vicki Gunvalson’s demotion heard round the world will be interesting to watch. How will she handle it? What about the new Housewife, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who in theory, stole Vicki’s orange? The fabulously named Braunwyn has at least one fan amongst the OC Housewives, namely Tamra Judge.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies couldn’t handle it when Andy Cohen asked about plastic surgery during the reunion? In contrast, there are other Real Housewives who don’t mind sharing every procedure they get done on the show, on social media, and in interviews. Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge falls into that latter category.
RHOC viewers have seen her change the size of her breast implants countless times throughout the years. She was open about her mini facelift, whatever that means. And now, she just got a pretty unusual procedure: permanently tattooed lip color. She couldn’t just use a Kylie Cosmetics lip stain?
