Whether you believe Denise Richards hooked up with Brandi Glanville or not, many people feel that Brandi didn’t tell her story in an organic, spontaneous manner. You’re telling me that Brandi just happened to be sitting in Kim Richards‘ car with a microphone on and that Kyle Richards unexpectedly invited her in without any prior knowledge that Brandi had some tea to spill? I don’t think so.
There was nothing at-all-spontaneous about that one, especially since Brandi isn’t even a cast member on this show anymore. After Denise flipped out at the mention of a “threesome” in the vicinity of her teenage daughters’ ears, the women claimed that they felt mom-shamed. So, more likely than not, Kyle already heard about the hookup via Kim or Brandi herself because why would Kim get in full hair and makeup just to drop off some dresses to Kyle while she’s filming with Teddi Mellencamp? Sure, that wasn’t orchestrated at all…
The Real Housewives of Orange County cast has come under fire for their comments and behaviors during the coronavirus pandemic. Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Kelly Dodd all hung out in close proximity for a selfie, which sparked outrage among the fans. And David Beador’s fiancée and mother of his future child Lesley Cook shaded Shannon for this gathering. And, let’s not forget the many times that Kelly has made ignorant comments about coronavirus.
Previously demoted and eventually fired Housewife Vicki Gunvalson slammed the California governor for refusing to open up nail salons when she wanted to get a manicure. At the very beginning of the stay-at-home orders, Tamra Judge caught flack for keeping her gym open. And, most recently, the cast traveled to film a trip, which also incited criticism. And now, Shannon has revealed that she and all three of her daughters have tested positive for the coronavirus. Presumably, Shannon was not on the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trip.
Ok, what is going on with the Real Housewives of Orange County? It seems like they just cannot keep out of the media with negative press. I know they say all press is good press but in this case, I would have to disagree.
The show has already experienced a major shakeup before the season even started filming with the
firing exit of OG’s Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. And Vicki has landed herself in hot water with her comments on coronavirus. So has Tamra, thanks to pictures she posted of her out with friends, no masks in sight. Which brings us to the current cast member, Kelly Dodd. Where do I even start? Kelly has been vocal about her constant travel, along with her insensitive comments about the virus. At this point, Kelly should do us all a favor and delete her social media. Honestly, the only person I’m here for with this cast is newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke. I know people have conflicting feelings on her first season but hey, at least she’s not out there sharing inconsiderate memes about COVID.
It’s been years since Heather Dubrow has graced our screens on Real Housewives of Orange County. Truth be told, I didn’t love her on the show, but now I really miss her. I miss how she stayed on the outskirts of most of the drama but always managed to be a part of it anyway. I miss her blatant self-absorption over the building of her mega-mansion. Hell, I even miss her telling Shannon Beador, “We’re done, please leave.” It wasn’t her best moment, but it was one of her brightest.
While she has made appearances on husband Terry Dubrow’s hit show, Botched, she’s (mostly) quiet. Unbothered if you will. Ok, so there was an assistant scandal thrown in there. Rich people problems, ammirite? And well, they did catch major heat for selling overpriced hand sanitizer during a pandemic. Not cool. But she’s trying to focus on other things, like casting for a new series with Terry. When other former housewives cling to their past glory, Heather stays in her lane.
Recently Bravo has taken action during the Black Lives Matter movement and axed several stars for their racist behavior. Vanderpump Rules showed Kristin Doute and Stassi Schroeder the door. The ladies held it open for Pump Rules newbies Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens, who were also fired for their past racist comments.
Below Deck Mediterranean star Pete Hunziker was also let go because of a racist social media post. Yet, there are some Bravo stars that have shown similarly unacceptable behavior but haven’t paid a price for it.
There’s no doubt that the Bravo world is still recovering from some recent firings. Most notably, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute from Vanderpump Rules. Next up to be fired was Pete Hunziker, a newbie deckhand on Below Deck Mediterranean. This was his first season and thanks to a racist post, followed by an abysmal apology, it will be his last.
It’s hard to keep up with some of the problematic pasts of these stars. It seems like everyone has one. Fans are already calling for Jax Taylor’s firing. They aren’t the only ones ready for someone else to be on the chopping block. Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge is coming after her former castmate.
Unless you’ve been living off the grid with no internet access, you know that a reckoning is happening over at Bravo.
First Vanderpump Rules cleaned house by firing Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and two other cast members over their past racist actions. Fans have started a petition for Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright to follow suit. And now, Tamra Judge is calling for Kelly Dodd to be fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County for her own racist past.
The Bravo universe has imploded over the last couple of weeks. The network has protected certain Bravolebrities for far too long, and finally higher-ups have taken action, firing a bunch of people who shouldn’t have had access to a huge platform in the first place. Now that Bravo has made some progressive movement, fans are calling for a host of other people to get the boot.
One such person is Real Housewives of Orange County mess star Kelly Dodd. Kelly has a history of saying questionable, even scary things. Her true colors really started to show in Season 11, when she told Heather Dubrow to have a sense of humor because Heather is Jewish. When the women called her out, she rationalized that she’s Mexican, and therefore can’t be racist. Her statements have rarely been based on logic or concrete facts. The problem with this is that she has a powerful following across social media sites – and of course RHOC – to share these “alternative facts.”
