It’s been abundantly clear this season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta that Kenya Moore and newbie Drew Sidora are just not going to get along. It’s kind of sad, considering Drew used to look up to Kenya, but meeting her was a total “disappointment.” Kenya and her bestie, maybe her girlfriend according to Drew, Latoya Ali came for Drew’s wig early on. Since then, they’ve gone back and forth, but things took a turn for the nasty this week.
During this week’s RHOA, Drew was in charge of a cast trip to New Orleans. She had the girls do a booty-shaking competition for who would get the best room. Kenya, who we know loves to utilize her power as host to make the girls compete for rooms, turned into a negative Nancy and essentially snatched a room key out of Drew’s hand.
While several members of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast have been involved in their fair share of controversies, no housewife is more divisive than Kelly Dodd. It started with her low-blow attacks on her castmates regarding their age, appearances and more. Last year, she took it to another level when she made insensitive comments about the coronavirus pandemic and wore a hat that mocked the Black Lives Matter movement. She’s since apologized for her “stupid” comments, but even Kelly thinks she’s probably getting the boot before Season 16. But who knows, because Andy Cohen doesn’t necessarily think she’s problematic.
And now Kelly has found herself in a controversy with former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump. But, somehow, LVP was the one admitting to a lie and apologizing to Kelly. I know, it’s very off-brand for these two.
Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County was weird, and pretty boring. Of course, lightning rod Kelly Dodd was making dangerous comments about coronavirus repeatedly.
Kelly apologized profusely, no doubt hoping to save her RHOC job. She also managed to mock the Black Lives Matter movement by sporting a “Drunk Wives Matter” hat.
Everyone has their own idea about what makes a Housewife notable. For some, it’s the cash flow. Someone like Jennifer Aydin who spends big and loves to talk about it, flaunt it, and talk about it again. For others, it’s all about the party and good times. We’re talking about the Porsha Williams and Sonja Morgans of the crew. Some like the women with a steady grind and a sense of accomplishment like Kandi Burruss, Lisa Vanderpump, or Tiffany Moon. Or just a scattered mess of pure humanity and confusing life choices. Looking at you, Ashley Darby.
Then there are the others. The Housewives that are mostly known for being notorious. Less famous than they are infamous. Some might say Vicki Gunvalson or Nene Leakes fall into this category. Of course, it’s all a matter of personal opinion. I’m sure some of you are already groaning and some of these examples because your perception of an all-star Housewife couldn’t be more different. Are there any Tre-huggers out there??
Shannon Beador is taking hits from every direction lately. While Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Kelly Dodd seem to be vying for the “most contentious” label, don’t count Shannon out! She may not be making the most noise, but there is some low-key drama happening with this one. Even if it doesn’t make its way onto Real Housewives of Orange County.
Shannon and her now ex-husband, David Beador can’t seem to get their relationship back on track. And while we all keep waiting for that rumored “fun Shannon” to appear, David seems to be living his best life. I mean he’s still a cheating loser weirdo, and his new wife seems sort of thirsty, but isn’t that his kink? David announced the pregnancy of his then fiancé, Lesley Cook back in October. Since then, they have gotten married and she has changed her name to Lesley Beador.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke really did the most during the latest Real Housewives of Orange County season… both on the show and on social media… and in interviews. It really turned into The Braunwyn Show, which many of us grew tired with.
She just seemed to do whatever she could to be seen, including hiring a professional photographer to take pictures of her at a Black Lives Matter protest. Trying to spotlight yourself during an event like that is just beyond cringe-worthy. Since then she “just happened to be photographed” while she and husband Sean Burke were walking out of a sex shop. Really? Paparazzi just happen to be following a second-season Real Housewife who lives in Orange County, California? No one believes that. Just like no one believes that the paparazzi “just happened to photograph” pictures of Braunwyn with her new girlfriend Kris. Kelly Dodd called her out for saying it was all staged, and, clearly, she’s right.
Kelly Dodd has been a controversial figure on Real Housewives of Orange County, especially last year. Kelly made many incorrect and dangerous comments about the coronavirus pandemic.
All Kelly has done is repeatedly apologize, only to issue more tone-deaf statements. In April o2020, the RHOC star referred to Covid-19 as “God’s way of thinning the herd!”
Who would you rather be friends with, Tamra Judge or Shannon Beador? Tamra has no problem stirring the pot and throwing anyone under the bus for a storyline. And, then there’s Shannon, who seems overwhelming, clingy, and demanding.
With those two choices for a friend, who would even want one?
