The last season of the Real Housewives of Orange County was not one of the best. Although I would say it was an improvement from the previous year, the season was still a bit of a snoozer. Not much happened, other than Gina Kirschenheiter age shaming the other women and Shannon Beador testing QVC frozen meals in her kitchen. Even Tamra Judge was on mostly good behavior. Except for injuring herself in a drunken, nude hot tub escapade!
And one of the consistent creators of OC drama spent last season minding her manners. The Vicki Gunvalson we have come to know and love (or loathe!) was drama avoidant and almost demure the entire season. OK, she might have twerked in a see-through black lace outfit in public and got intoxicated a few times, but for the Queen of Coto de Caza, she was almost nun-like. And reportedly, Bravo is not happy about it.
No one loves a themed event as much as a reality TV star does. And, of course, St. Patrick’s Day is no different.
There were plenty of reality TV stars that dressed up for the holiday and shared photos with their social media followers.
Tamra Judge is known to Real Housewives of the Orange County fans as someone who constantly stirs the pot and throws a lot of shade. Whether it’s in her talking heads during the regular season, her reunion antics, or various off-season promotional opportunities…Tamra doesn’t hold back when it comes to feuds with current or former cast members. Which brings us to our current quarrel between Tamra and Jim Bellino. If only Tamra stuck to her most famous insult about the Bellino’s. She probably wouldn’t be in this predicament (Jesus Jugs, anyone?).
Unfortunately for Tamra, Jim did not take her insults lying down. He responded via a blog post on his website. Jim addressed the controversy saying, “It’s unfortunate that I have to speak out on matters that I have attempted to keep private, and that others continue to attempt to portray me and my family in a false light.”
Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi and her fiancé Slade Smiley announced in December that they were expecting their first child together. The desire to have a family is something the couple has been open about for years. Gretchen has been honest about her fertility struggles with her fans, including undergoing multiple rounds of failed IVF treatments. And the physical and mental toll that has taken on her.
Gretchen has even revealed how Slade giving her fertility injections brought the two closer together as a couple. And now they have revealed the gender of their baby.
The mazel of the day goes to Andy Cohen! It’s officially official! The Watch What Happens Live host is now a father!
There’s nothing like some mother/child time, right? Kelly Dodd took her daughter Jolie to Phoenix via private jet. How Lala Kent of her! Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans took the low key route. She just posted a selfie with her baby girl.
Kristin Cavallari shared photos with her children taking care of a baby bird. Shamari DeVoe shared a throwback photo breastfeeding her twin boys. This is probably going to get some attention, because… well, it’s 2019. People are just looking for reasons to be offended these days.
As another year approaches, it is time to reflect upon the past, and dream about the future. As a reality television
fanatic fan, my thoughts turn to which Housewives need to grace our television screens once again. Are you listening, Bravo?
Each Real Housewives franchise has seasons that are amazing and others that are
boring less exciting. Often, the key is having the right number of newbies and franchise favorites. But what really makes sparks fly is when a Housewife returns to a show, resuming prior relationships and interacting with newer castmates. Here is my dream team of who needs to be, and deserves to be, a Housewife again.
Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi just shared some big news! She and her longtime fiance Slade Smiley are expecting their first child together. They have been very public about their struggles to conceive and their journey with IVF. Now, they are just as open about their good news.
