As a reality TV newbie, Meghan listed “not running into the crew” and “having to wear fake eyelashes” as the only two things that took some getting used to. Otherwise, she was ready and willing to film, “Being on a reality TV show, you have to be okay in front of the cameras, otherwise you don’t have a story. You don’t have a show.”
Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County the ladies put aside their differences, pettiness, and spite in the name of philanthropy. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
In Napa, at the Bello’s fabulous mansion, celebrating COLLETTE, the fabulous non-champagne occupying the niche market of Methode Champenoise, aka sparkling wine coolers, drama is ensuing. When in fabulous surroundings, act not fabulous! Shannon Beador and Meghan KING Edmonds are arguing over being non-charitable regarding Meghan’s wine fundraiser for juvenile diabetes (because nothing says diabetic and kids like wine!).
Meghan doesn’t understand why Shannon doesn’t want to help her host this event, because although Meghan is tall enough to reach the sky, she has difficulty understanding that the world doesn’t revolve around her. I mean, OF COURSE Shannon would want to help some young upstart third wife of a has-been athlete, because charity starts at home among your RHOC kin. DUH!
Real Housewives Of Orange County is a world unlike any other. It is a world in which one hires a premiere cake creator to design a cake shaped like a bottle of champagne. Then one reserves a seat on a private jet to fly said cake to the launch of their said champagne. Then, come to find out, the cake is actually fake – as in not really a cake, but a Styrofoam mold that resembles a cake, and the champagne is not really champagne, but a bubbly wine. Why so much precaution over a fake cake? Styrofoam robustly withstands grubby, unskilled hands of kindergarten crafters like Meghan Edmonds, so certainly it doesn’t need a seatbelt on a private jet, or it’s own personal valet. That’s just one of the many things that ponders me from last night’s episode. There are many, many more…
Heather Dubrow is headed to Napa to launch her champagne, which is not actually champagne, because it is not produced in France, therefore it must be called “Methode Champenoise.” Basically it’s bubbly wine. And calling bubbly wine “methode champenoise” is like calling a car port a “porte-cochere.” You can put fondant on a Styrofoam mold, but it’s still Styrofoam mold! Heather – accept it: you made a designer wine cooler!
In case you were feeling stressed out about the lack of available Real Housewives wines (and other sparkly alcoholic beverages), Heather Dubrow is launching her own champagne, not to be confused with Fabellini. Appropriately this champagne is named after Heather’s 5-year-old daughter Colette, who leads Heather to drink. Heather commissions a giant champagne bottle-shaped cake, that she is flying in its own seat on a private plane to Napa for the launch party of Colette Champagne. All of the ladies are invited. Lifestyles of the rich and guest role on canceled sitcom hopefully famous!
Literally fell asleep – snoooooze, snore, zzzzzzzzzz, yawn at the thought of another Housewives hawking wine storyline.
The couple has been married for 11 years when this February, Josh reportedly suffered a cocaine relapse and then abruptly filed for divorce from Katie! According to well-placed reports Josh told several people his relapse was spurned by a fight he had with his wife. Still, Katie says the divorce filing “came out of nowhere” and she has no idea what prompted it!
Real Housewives Of Orange County will premiere on Bravo June 10th, but there’s already major drama about whether or not new cast member Katie Hamilton will even appear this season! And with word that her MLB husband Josh Hamilton filed for divorce 2 months ago, things are getting even trickier!
Katie, together with Meghan Edmonds, are the new ladies slated to join RHOC for season 10, both boasting an impressive MLB marriages. Unfortunately, Katie’s soon-to-be-ex-husband Josh, an Anaheim Angels outfielder who has a long history of substance abuse issues, suffered a relapse during filming, reportedly over marital problems and the intrusion of reality TV cameras. This prompted rumors that Katie had pulled out of the show to focus on family issues and avoid having the drama play-out for Bravo cameras.
Katie Hamilton is supposed to be one of the two new Real Housewives Of Orange County stars, but amid news that her MLB player husband Josh Hamilton has relapsed in his battle with cocaine addiction, Katie may have quit the show!
Last week ESPN confirmed that Josh, an outfielder for the Angels, was meeting with MLB baseball officials for a “disciplinary issue.” Josh had surgery in February and was recovering at a friend’s house possibly because he was having issues with Katie, which led to a relapse “at least involving cocaine.”
Josh’s wife Katie has been filming for RHOC, and according to sources “fitting in well” with the group, leaving producers thrilled with her addition to the cast. She joined alongside another MLB wife Meghan Edmonds, both of whom know Heather Dubrow. But did the intrusion of reality TV place strain on Josh and Katie’s 10-year-marriage?
