Even the fan favorites from reality television have their fair share of haters. If a show is watched by enough people, pretty much every cast member is going to have supporters and some haters who just aren’t their fans.
Teddi Mellencamp hasn’t been the most loved cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which is a nice way of putting it. For the most part, people hate on her for being “boring” or “too normal” or just not having an “interesting” storyline. Of course, there’s also that famous last name that seemingly got her in the door. And, then there’s the pot stirring, which someone has to do on every (entertaining) reality show. Is Teddi the best reality TV star of all time? No, but that’s about it. Teddi and her children have received death wishes from “fans” and that is not-at-all justified. No matter what Teddi has said and done on this show, that is really crossing the line.
Whether you believe Denise Richards hooked up with Brandi Glanville or not, many people feel that Brandi didn’t tell her story in an organic, spontaneous manner. You’re telling me that Brandi just happened to be sitting in Kim Richards‘ car with a microphone on and that Kyle Richards unexpectedly invited her in without any prior knowledge that Brandi had some tea to spill? I don’t think so.
There was nothing at-all-spontaneous about that one, especially since Brandi isn’t even a cast member on this show anymore. After Denise flipped out at the mention of a “threesome” in the vicinity of her teenage daughters’ ears, the women claimed that they felt mom-shamed. So, more likely than not, Kyle already heard about the hookup via Kim or Brandi herself because why would Kim get in full hair and makeup just to drop off some dresses to Kyle while she’s filming with Teddi Mellencamp? Sure, that wasn’t orchestrated at all…
Every former Real Housewife claims that she left the show to “pursue other opportunities,” but pretty much none of them ever quit. In fact, many of them are completely unprepared for life without those Bravo paychecks, overcharging for Cameo videos and peddling laxative teas on Instagram to support themselves and pay for heavily discounted Botox injections.
Sure, some of them are smart with their money, but, at this point, financial issues are a staple among the Housewives, especially the former cast members. It’s par for the course, in all honesty.
Can I get an inflatable tube man dance and a wooooowwieeee!?! BAM! There’s some glitter in your face for good measure. Apparently, Lydia McLaughlin and her mother Judy Stirling from Real Housewives of Orange County are baaaAAAaack. Lydia was a total one season wonder…but TWICE. In season 8 Lydia boasted about her connection with her lord, Jesus. Meanwhile, her mom grappled with quitting “the pot” and keeping her feet off Vicki Gunvalson’s couch. In season 12 Lydia gave this show temporary new life when she rolled in looking like Charlie Chaplin. You know the scene. Never forget. I don’t even remember her mom in season 12. Must have been riveting.
Tamra Judge has even admitted she doesn’t think these recent seasons of RHOC have been their best. Can’t say I disagree. I miss the drama from Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino, and even Heather Dubrow. Call me crazy, but the TV was good. Lydia, on the other hand, already misses Vicki on her screen. Well with taste like that…
Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute recently said that Scheana Marie carried the latest season of the show, but I’d have to say that Kristen did her fair share as well. A majority of the season was focused on her falling out with Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney over her on-again-off-again relationship with Brian Carter.
Stassi and Katie might not have appreciated the back and forth, but fans appreciated Kristen’s honesty. Relationships can be messy. And now Kristen is about to get even more honest and real about her personal life in her upcoming book, He’s Making You Crazy.
Does the OG of the OC have a case of bitter oranges? Vicki Gunvalson made her unceremonious exit from The Real Housewives of Orange County at the conclusion of last season, and has wasted no time since she left bashing, belittling and other bad-mouthing the show that made her a reality TV legend.
On her podcast (because remember during the Season 12 reunion when she declared, “I don’t do podcasts”? Yeah, we do too…), Vicki opened up about her wildly vacillating emotions about saying goodbye to her life as a Housewife. She made a rather stark prediction about how the show will do without her.
Grab your oranges because The Real Housewives of Orange County are in some seriously hot water. On Monday (May 4), Kelly Dodd took to social media to share a picture of herself hanging out with Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson and Braunwyn Windham-Burke…in the middle of the global coronavirus pandemic.
Needless to say, fans didn’t take to0 kindly to the RHOC stars utter disregard for social distancing directives in a time when most everyone around the country is doing their best to stay home for the sake of public health, and outrage spread faster than you can scream “I have never been with multiple partners in my life!”
Ever since Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson walked away from Real Housewives of Orange County, they have not been able to stay away from drama. Both ladies wanted a full-time position. Tamra was offered a paltry three-episode deal to finish her storyline, but she refused.
Then, in late February, Bravo’s Andy Cohen confirmed that Tamra was going to be part of RHOC Season 15. We don’t know how much of a role she will play.
