Kelly Dodd

Kelly meets Shannon for lunch

For Kelly Dodd’s first two seasons on Real Housewives of Orange County, she was essentially Vicki Gunvalson’s sole supporter. Now that Vicki is on good terms with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador again, she’s all “Kelly who?” She completely broke girl code by setting up Kelly’s super recent ex Michael Dodd with another woman and going on double dates with the two of them and her boyfriend Steve Lodge.

On top of that, she kept the whole thing a secret, and had zero remorse for being shady. Now this whole thing has snowballed and the former close friends are not even on speaking terms these days.

Shannon Beador Thanks (Some Of) The Orange County Housewives For Support After “Tough Day In Court”

Even though the cast started to get annoyed with Shannon Beador during the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon does have some real friends in the cast when it comes down to it- just not the two new girls.

Shannon thanked Kelly Dodd, Tamra Judge, and Vicki Gunvalson for supporting her during a difficult time. In not-at-all-surprising news, she did not mention Emily Simpson or Gina Kirschenheiter.

Emily Simpson defends her marriage

A Real Housewives reunion is a major undertaking. It is usually shown in multiple episodes and they film for an entire day. Real Housewives of Orange County newbie Emily Simpson recently admitted that she’s taking her first reunion very seriously and she’s getting very prepared.

Emily has a binder full of notes on every single Housewife and she has it out for one of her costars in particular: Tamra Judge.

Shannon in Jamaica

The Real Housewives Of Orange County are in Jamaica! Whip out the Red Stripe, culturally insensitive dreadlocks hats, and Shannon Beador‘s giant suitcase full of complaints and neurosis. Who’s excited!?

The women arrive at the airport at 4:15 am, but at approximately 6am (OK it was probably the day the before) Shannon calls Tamra Judge to complain that she’s too fat to fit into anything she owns so she’s not bringing a bathing suit or tank tops. To a tropical island. Tamra’s advice: “Stop Eating!” Shannon must’ve found something to fit – Kyle Richards Kaftan Kollection? – because a couple hours later, after being awake all night, Shannon showed up at the airport with two enormous bags. At least one of those bags was filled with a feng shui kit, essential oils, 873 types of vitamins, several different types of cleansing machines, plus all of Shannon’s 83957295798476 anxieties, animosities, and insecurities – including a framed photo of David snarfing tequila chips.

Tamra Judge

Tamra Judge puts the “real” in Real Housewives of Orange County. Even she has to admit that Season 13 hasn’t been the show’s most exciting season- at least at this point. Sure Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson got into that argument about the double dates and Kelly got into a screaming match with both Emily Simpson and her husband Shane Simpson, but pretty much nothing else happened all season.

On top of that, with Emily and Gina Kirschenheiter joining the show as new Housewives, it’s been a pretty tough transition. They have spent so much time “introducing” them to the viewers and not enough time showing them as integrated members of the group. Short story long, there just hasn’t been enough drama. Thankfully Tamra promises that things are going to heat up.

Even without an official announcement, it’s so obvious  that the Real Housewives of New York cast is filming Season 11 right now. Sure, they usually do film the season during the same time frame each year, but the true indication that Season 11 is in progress are all the recent photos of the cast getting together. Dorinda Medley, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, and Tinsley Mortimer shared photos from the Berkshires. Does this mean we get two different Berkshires trips next season? Please don’t tell me they swapped out Christmas for random fall fun. We NEED a Berkshires Christmas episode- or three.

Vicki apologizes to Gina

When Kelly Dodd joined Real Housewives of Orange County, she quickly became Vicki Gunvalson’s sole friend in the cast. This season, that could not be further from the truth. After Vicki and her man Steve Lodge went on secretive double dates with Kelly’s ex Michael Dodd after setting him up with a friend, Kelly was (understandably) upset with Vicki for breaking girl code.

Sure, they “made up,” but the tension has been thick between the two of them ever since. Watching the show back and commenting on their past arguments in interviews and on social media definitely hasn’t helped the situation. Nowadays it’s clear that these two are not on speaking terms and they are bound to be arguing with each other on opposite couches when they tape the reunion.

Shannon Beador is waiting for

Unfortunately for Shannon Beador, this is another Real Housewives of Orange County season when she’s not getting along with the new girl. However, there are two new Housewives this time around- Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter– and they are both at odds with Shannon.

Shannon is all about her post-divorce snapback, her line of food at QVC, and her children. Meanwhile, Emily and Gina are upset that Shannon has no interest in being friends with them. Is Shannon being cold to them? Or are they just forgetting about the drama that Gina brought Shannon into? Is it possible that they’re all right/wrong on some level? Not in Shannon’s eyes. She is adamant that she just doesn’t have the time to acknowledge Gina and Emily- even though that is pretty much what she has to do as a cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County.
