Who knew a housewarming party could drag on for so long? I mean, seriously though. This episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County revolves almost entirely around last week’s drama at Shannon Beador‘s party and its immediate aftermath. Hence the foreboding title of the episode: “The Aftershock.” And if last week’s glass throwing by Braunwyn Windham-Burke was the splash heard ’round the OC, this week is the aftershock heard round…what exactly? Well, at least around the Porch Streets of Newport Beach. Which are, you know, all within walking distance of one another.
Cut back to Shannon‘s rented suburban dream home. Braunwyn has just stormed out in the wake of her argument with Gina Kirschenheiter. The rest of the ‘Wives are positively scandalized by the lone, unbroken glass sitting at the bottom of Shannon’s pool. It’s almost as if they never watched Tamra Judge throw red wine in Jeana Keough‘s face back in the Season 6 finale. Oh right, none of them did. Because none of the women in this cast were on the show back at the very start of the Real Housewives of Orange County glory days.
Welcome back to week three of The Real Housewives of Orange County! Now before we go down the rabbit hole to discuss Shannon Beador‘s revamped food line, Kelly Dodd‘s latest tone deaf behavior or whatever hair nightmare Gina Kirschenheiter will inflict upon us this week, I realize I failed to analyze one very important element of any new Housewives season last week: taglines! Since I started with episode 2, I didn’t think much about it. But in retrospect, Bravo supplanted the taglines in the reveal with Jeana Keough‘s epic Desperate Housewives-inspired intro. So let’s dive into the Season 15 taglines shall we?
For starters, they’re pretty atrocious. I mean, right? Like, all together they might be the weakest batch in RHOC history. Possibly in all of Housewives history. And that’s saying something for a show that started out with Vicki Gunvalson crying, “I don’t wanna get old” way back in Season 1. Kelly telling viewers not to judge her? After everything she’s been doing and saying in the wake of a global pandemic? That’s rich. (And don’t even get me started on that “Drunk Wives Matter” moment.) Braunwyn Windham-Burke‘s makes more sense in the context of her alcoholism than it did before the season premiered, while Shannnon‘s “closed Beador” probably would’ve been more effective if she’d used it back in Season 13 right after her split.
Real Housewives of Orange County fans have kept Kara Keough and the rest of her family in their thoughts recently. Jeana Keough’s daughter suffered an absolutely tragic loss when her son McCoy Bosworth died following a complication in childbirth last month. Following his passing, Kara has been very open about what she’s been going through, which is something that many families can relate to, sadly enough.
In the midst of grieving her newborn son McCoy, Kara broke the news that her father Matt Keough died suddenly. RHOC viewers recall that Matt and Jeana were separated for decades, only to officially divorce in 2019. Jeana revealed that Matt passed away from a pulmonary embolism. Both Kara and Jeana have made themselves very vulnerable to the public as they navigate this difficult time in their lives.
As polarizing as Tamra Judge has been to the Real Housewives of Orange County fandom, it’s only fair to admit that she knows how to bring the drama. She knows how to stir the pot just right, riling up both Housewives and viewers. Will the current cast be able to bring it without Tamra’s two-faced tendencies?
Meanwhile, Tamra has been doing interview after interview. She has simultaneously slammed the show for firing her and claimed that Andy Cohen has already asked her to come back. She and Vicki Gunvalson have been doing nonstop interviews since they got the boot. Clearly, they have some time on their hands, despite their claims that they have a lot going on without RHOC.
Tragedy struck Jeana Keough‘s family earlier this month when her ex-husband Matt Keough passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 64.

In addition to Kara, Matt and Jeana had two sons together, Colton Keough and Shane Keough, who RHOC viewers saw a lot of during the early days of the show.
