Braunwyn Windham-Burke joined Real Housewives of Orange County last season, and she was full of surprises! We learned that Braunwyn has a very complicated relationship with her mother, Cyndi-Lauper look-alike Dr. Deb. Braunwyn revealed that she and her husband, Sean Burke, occasionally have threesomes. And Braunwyn really liked making out with Tamra Judge.
After having seven children, Braunwyn threw a raunchy lactation party to celebrate the end of her days nursing kids. Of course, all of this behavior caused “OG” Vicki Gunvalson to have an epic meltdown at the RHOC reunion, where she called the choices that Braunwyn made “disgusting” and accused her of ruining the franchise. Of course, Braunwyn never got drunk and peed on someone’s bed. Stay classy, Vicki.
The upcoming Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County is going to be very different. Gone are two of the tres amigas. Last season, the “OG of the OC,” Vicki Gunvalson, was demoted to be a Friend of the Housewives. After having a melt-down during the reunion, she quit after she learned that she would not be getting her orange back. But don’t worry–Vicki is getting her own podcast.
Tamra Judge also walked away after she was only offered three episodes to complete her storyline. That is less than a demotion. Ouch! Now there is only one amiga left–Shannon Beador. And if Shannon returns, it looks like she will be spending a lot of time with Kelly Dodd.
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.
While fans are still reeling from the news of Vicki Gunvalson‘s exit from Real Housewives of Orange County, more trouble was brewing for the self-proclaimed OG of the OC behind the scenes and it had nothing to do with her holding an orange.
Vicki has never been shy about her dedication to her insurance business and how successful she is, but success doesn’t come without some bumps along the way. Those bumps include last year’s lawsuit brought by one of her former clients, who accused Vicki of fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract. Whew, is that a mouthful of an accusation, which we remember Kelly Dodd was all too happy to bring up and throw in Vicki’s face during a fight on their cast trip to Key West. While Vicki vehemently denied the claim, Kelly’s taunts of Vicki being a con woman seemed to hit a nerve.
No love lost here. Real Housewives of Orange County’s Kelly Dodd doesn’t seem sad that two of the tres amigas are no longer filming. Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge will not return to the franchise when filming resumes.
This has left many fans wondering how Kelly will handle having Shannon Beador, aka the last amiga, around. And I think it’s fair to say Kelly doesn’t seem the least bit worried.
In the cast shakeup heard around the world–OK–in Housewife Land–the departures of OG Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County were recently announced. After Vicki’s demotion to Friend of last season, her exit was not a total shock. Tamra’s departure was a little more surprising. Housewife OG’s and long-time cast members are probably shaking in their Louboutins–if they are smart and their reality egos allow for reflections on their Housewife status.
Vicki went out relatively classy–thanking her fans for their support. Tamra took her leave when she was only offered three episodes to wrap up her storyline. Then she appeared to unfollow her former co-stars on Instagram. Who could blame her? Being shown the door has to sting. If all that wasn’t enough, both Vicki and Tamra have more fallout to deal with from their lives as former Housewives–besides tarnished reputations, that is.
Fans are wondering who will join Real Housewives of Orange County after the news broke that Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge are done with the show. Since nothing else has been announced, it’s safe to assume that Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson, aand Braunwyn Windham-Burke will be back for Season 15. Nevertheless, it’s unclear if they’ll be full-time or if they’ll get demoted to a part-time role, like Vicki was for Season 14.
Most likely, nothing will be “officially” confirmed until Season 15 has finished filming and the network is gearing up to promote the show, but there is one name floating around about a possible new cast member.
As expected, Vicki Gunvalson is not handling her exit from Real Housewives of Orange County very well. She talked shit about Andy Cohen after he wrote a sentimental and kind Instagram caption about her.
And now, Vicki is resuming a Twitter feud with Emily Simpson…. from December 2019. Girl, let it go. Vicki
may have been may be the reality TV veteran, but Emily totally smoked her, again.
