It’s clear after Season 15 of the Real Housewives of Orange County that a shake-up needs to happen. The cast has really turned toxic on one another and I honestly miss the old days of Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge dancing on bars at Andale’s. Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke put themselves in the running for the worst housewives of all time after last year’s performance. And Shannon Beador tried to be the fun uno amiga as the most senior cast member, but it just wasn’t the same.
Even though Tamra left the show after Season 14, she’s always involved with the drama. She and Shannon, who at one time talked on the phone for hours a day, have totally turned against one another. It seems like every RHOC former cast member and their momma has something to say about Tammy Sue stirring the pot, but at least she made the show interesting. I miss her naked wasted antics and watching her relationship with Eddie Judge on screen.
Who even knows what the future holds for the Real Housewives of Orange County these days. Kelly Dodd and Brauwyn Windham-Burke made Season 15 pretty insufferable. Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson are ready at any time to swoop in, whoop it up and save the day. We saw Shannon Beador as the veteran cast member last season, which is about as exciting as it sounds. No wonder Andy Cohen says Bravo is taking their sweet time before casting Season 16. Just bring back Fancy Pants Heather Dubrow and Detective Meghan King Edmonds and all will be right in the OC again.
And the year is 2021 and somehow, we’re still talking about Shannon and David Beador’s divorce. Even though he has a new baby with a new fiance. And Shannon is just waiting for the right moment to marry her new boo. However, the Beadors just can’t quit each other, especially when it comes to bickering back and forth about the most ridiculous situations.
Does anyone ever miss Alexis Bellino? Yeah, me neither. I can’t exactly say she was a housewife I enjoyed and I feel like outside of providing some unintentional comic relief on Real Housewives of Orange County, she is kind of easy to forget.
Her ex, Jim Bellino, is proving to be a little harder to get rid of after worming his way into last season’s drama in the OC. He made a money and relevance grab when he decided to sue Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge for talking shit about him. Which if you ask me, was well deserved. But despite what I think about Alexis, I’m glad she’s rid of her narcissist, pompous ex. And now she’s moved on to greener pastures in the relationship department.
Remember Jim Bellino? Of course, you don’t want to remember his huge face and probably keep memories of him locked up in that never-remember part of your brain. Is Jim also on your list of worst husbands from Real Housewives of Orange County? Because he’s right up there with Shane Simpson for me.
Not only is Jim archaic in his views on marriage and gender roles, but he also gets hyper-sensitive when people say mean things about him. For instance, when Jim and Alexis Bellino were married, they opened a number of trampoline parks. Back in 2018, when Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador were on a podcast they did what they do and talked trash about him. He retaliated by suing both of them for defamation.
Ex-housewife Alexis Bellino has always been known for her excess. During her time on Real Housewives of Orange County, we often heard her bragging about houses, cars and expensive handbags. Her castmates famously ganged up on her on their trip to Costa Rica to point this out. Gretchen Rossi called her materialistic. Vicki Gunvalson (rest in housewives peace) told her she should be saving money instead of buying cars. And super villain Tamra Judge called on Jesus Jugs to”be a true person” for once. The verbal barrage ended with Alexis retreating to her room in tears, saying that everyone was bullying her.
While her marriage to Jim Bellino ended and her paychecks from RHOC dried up once she
got fired from left the show, Alexis didn’t exactly reign it in. She kept the cash flow coming in from super awkward stints on Marriage Boot camp: Reality Stars-Family Edition and a new relationship with a guy that I’m assuming also has money. I don’t know how much but I do know it’s enough for them to land on an episode of Below Deck together.
Hell hath no fury like a scorned Shannon Storms Beador! Shannon is the last surviving member of the Tres Amigas on Real Housewives of Orange County. If we’ve learned anything about her over the years, it’s that she does not take any accusation or legal battle lying down. This woman makes it her job to ensure that we ALL SEE THE TRUTH!
This past season of RHOC we gained more info about the lawsuit filed by human garbage pile Jim Bellino against Shannon and Tamra Judge. Viewers discovered some of this information simply because Kelly Dodd likes to shout about legal issues (looking at you Jane Roe Vicki Gunvalson). But now this lawsuit has apparently been settled and Shannon is coming for Jimbo’s money in the name of Jesus – er Jesus Jugs.
Last night’s Below Deck was certainly stiff with drama, wasn’t it!? Former ESPN host Jemele Hill came on board with a group of her girlfriends to celebrate her bachelorette party. They wanted smiling stewardesses, nonstop drinks, and a penis cake. Well they got everything, but the smiling stewardesses!
But first … le drama! With mere hours left before the new – famous! – charter guest arrives, Captain Lee Rosbach has to put all the naughty slumber-partying kids to bed with the threat of punishment. No dessert for a week! He storms to the aft deck like an enraged mommy woken from her slumber. The only thing he needed was curlers in his hair to complete the look, (pecs are the new curlers).
Kate Chastain slinks to her bed then bursts into sobs. Kate is beyond fed up with being taken advantage of by the men on this boat so good thing she only has 3 days left to go! The next morning the mood is tense and testy as Captain Lee calls the entire crew in for a meeting.
Do male scorpions sting? Or is it females? Or both? On Below Deck everyone is feeling stung, which is maybe why they’re also lashing out.
Rhylee Gerber was doing fairly well after her pep talk from Captain Lee Rosbach saved her from getting fired, but a few crispy scorpions (and dickish deckhands) proved to be her undoing. Poor Rhylee – this is the worst case of gaslighting ever!
But first — sexyThaitimes! Alexis Bellino is still dry-humping her way to heaven. The former Real Housewives Of Orange County star is on board to celebrate her divorce from Jim by begging her new boyfriend to propose. Remember when Jesus Barbie aspired to be nothing more than the perfect Christian wife, toting a blinged-out bible to prayer practice (which obviously took place while simultaneously spinning)? Well Alexis abandoned that in a Coto Mansion. New Alexis is more Eve who ate the apple right off Drew Bohn‘s tree. Sadly we had to witness the whole thing.
