Some Real Housewives earn their pay more than others, in my opinion. There are ladies who deserve it for being clever and funny, like Shannon Beador. Others earn their dollars by living a fabulous life of extravagance, like former OC Housewife Heather Dubrow. But the biggest bang for the buck amongst Housewives comes from their ability to stir up drama. And few Housewives from any franchise have done it better (or worse!) than Tamra Judge of the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Now going into her twelfth season as a Housewife, viewers have seen it all with Tamra. An ugly divorce and custody battle. Remarriage. Financial problems. Bitter feuds with the likes of Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino. Finding Jesus. Multiple cosmetic procedures. And throwing wine in Jeana Keough’s face. You get the picture! Now, Tamra has hinted that it might be time to turn in her orange and become a regular citizen again.
Social media shaming is not uncommon, as Heather Dubrow recently found out. And it is not limited to adults. For some reason, people feel very free to insult children as well. The former Real Housewives of Orange Countymom was recently subjected to some derogatory comments regarding her youngest daughter’s choice of clothing.
Fortunately, Heather is rarely at a loss for words and decided to gift the trolls with some free online education. Class is in session with Champs Dubrow!
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 Housewivesfranchise 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.
Even though they’ve publicly feuded, many reality TV stars gathered with family for Christmas. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga celebrated Christmas Eve together. But what kind of cookies did they eat? Did Melissa bring some sprinkle cookies? Or did Teresa insist on eating pignoli cookies? Hopefully, they didn’t argue about desserts this year.
It felt like there were Real Housewives meetups happening all over the country this week. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when I scroll through my Instagram feed. Kandi Burruss supported Beverly Hills Housewife Erika Jayne at her Atlanta concert. Potomac Housewives Gizelle Bryant hung out with Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes. Warning: they applied way too much airbrush to their IG photo. Cynthia Bailey left the ATL to hang out with Dorinda Medley in New York City.
Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond shared photos hanging with their kids. Meanwhile, their costar Cary Deuber shared a photo of her face all marked up and ready for a cosmetic procedure. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beadorfollowed her lead. Shannon posted a photo of herself getting some cosmetic enhancements. This is a social media trend that I just don’t understand.
Hell hath no fury like Kelly Dodd scorned. Vicki Gunvalson crossed the wrong woman. Vicki may be the “OG of the OC,” but she’s truly met her match. Kelly is unfiltered, ruthless, shady, and I love her for it.
Vicki has always prided herself on being the sole OG remaining on Real Housewives of Orange County. How long will her reign last? If you ask Vicki, she would probably say “forever.” Kelly is not on the same page with that one. At all.
Nevertheless, Emily jumped in to defend her man and told Kellyshe would “kill her.” Other than that, Emily doesn’t really have a ton of drama to resolve with other cast members during the Season 13 reunion. Or at least that’s what it seems like based on the episodes up until this point.
