Kelly Dodd

Gina is drunk and loud

I realize that the Real Housewives of Orange County started it all, and we’ve gotten some fabulously dramtastic additional members of the franchise in its wake. However, who determines when a Bravo staple has jumped the shark? I’m not saying RHOC needs to be retired. Shannon Beador hot tubbing in Spanx was television gold. Vicki Gunvalson’s inability to form a sincere apology is always mildly entertaining. Even Kelly Dodd and Tamra Judge have been easy(ish) to watch this season (did I really just type that?). That said, I can’t get over the newbies. When will Andy Cohen learn? No extra is going to infiltrate this dysfunctional foursome.

It’s a bit of a shame. I’m sure Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter are lovely people, but they are nothing more than filler. Even if they were the most interesting women in the world, no one would be interested in their storyline. The foursome runs off anyone in its path, but I have to hand it to Gina. At least she’s attempting so somewhat stir the pot with her screeching voice and her constant brashness in the name of authenticity. I actually really like her, but she won’t last. Maybe she’ll be picked up by another member of the franchise that has an easier orientation than subjecting newbies to the Kook of Coto.

Kelly Dodd

It’s clear that things are not good between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson. And no it’s not about the same double date storyline that they’ve been arguing about all season. Thank god. That storyline has truly overstayed its welcome.

Now Kelly is calling out one Vicki’s “best friends” for harassing her and spreading lies to the media. She even says that Tamra Judge and Jeff Lewis can verify her claims. Is Vicki having someone else do her dirty work? That is a #TotalHousewifeMove if I’ve ever seen one- which I have… as in every single episode of every single Real Housewives show. This is a textbook tactic. She doesn’t get blood on her hands all while her latest rival takes the heat.

RHOC Poker Party

If there’s one thing Kelly Dodd learned on last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County it’s that when you bet on a friendship with Vicki Gunvalson, you always lose!

We also got a big dose of the new girls last night. While Emily Simpson seems sweet, almost too normal, that Gina Cantevenbebotherwithwhatsherlastname is, well, to be frank, annoying as f–k! Since we know Gina is a New Yawker who tells it like it is and doesn’t hold back or hang around “pusses,” I think she’d be fine with my assessment of her personality.

Doubly annoying is Gina’s constant comparison of New York vs. OC. As if everyone in Orange County is a backstabbing, judgmental, harlot (there are) out to destroy her tender, open-heart (they are), but girl… please – we have all seen Real Housewives Of New York! We know Ramona Singer, and the likes of her are as judgmental as they come. We also know that Gina wouldn’t last one cocktail in that cesspool of rabid cougars.

Vicki apologizes to Kelly - insincerely

Before we get into tonight’s newest episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson wants to clear a few things up. The OG of the OC weighs in on Kelly Dodds issues with her and also gives her two cents about Emily Simpson‘s husband taking the bar exam. Vicki also calls Gina Kirschenheiter “completely out of line.”

On dinner at the farmhouse, Vicki says she’s shocked that Real Housewives of Orange County newbie Gina Kirschenheiter has any opinion at all on her situation with Kelly Dodd. “I had just met Gina for the first time that night, and for her to have ANY opinion on my friendship with Michael, my friend Teri (who he briefly dated), and us going on a few dates with them is shocking. Gina has no idea that when Kelly divorced Michael, Steve and I chose to remain friends with him too. As far as we could tell, they just grew apart and were choosing to be cordial to one another, which made it easy on us, because to us, being friends with both of them was the right thing. Before Gina started “giving her opinion” at the dinner table, she should have heard both sides, which she hadn’t. It’s obvious Kelly had filled her in on “her side” of the Michael story, which is why Gina acted the way she did. I never asked for Gina’s opinion on this personal matter with Kelly and Michael, and quite frankly I don’t care what she thinks. She was very loud yelling across the table, and I think completely out of line.”

Ramona Singer’s Spain Vacation With Her Daughter Avery & A Run-In With Kelly Dodd- Photos

Now that filming of Real Housewives of New York and the reunion episodes is completely done, Ramona Singer is living her best life. Then again, when is Ramona not living her best life? It seems like she is always having a great time. And that seems to be the case during her vacation in Spain with her daughter Avery Singer. The mother-daughter trip included stops in Barcelona, Ibiza, and Madrid.

Gina Kischenheiter

Slowly but surely the newest Real Housewives of Orange County cast members are coming into the circle. Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson finally met all the women in the cast during the last episode and hopefully this means there are some juicy story lines on the horizon.

Of course Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd’s feud dominated the group gathering, but that didn’t stop Gina from sharing her opinion. She is making a name for herself on this show and she’s just saying what everyone else is thinking. Of course Vicki and Shannon Beador did not like the new girl sharing her thoughts she just met them, but she wasn’t saying anything that (most of) the viewers disagreed with. Vicki definitely broke girl code when she set up Kelly’s ex-husband with a friend and secretly went on double dates with them. There is no doubt about that.

Emily Simpson

At this point, it’s a pretty easy rookie season for new Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Emily Simpson. She hasn’t really had to deal with any drama. However, she got a tiny taste of the cast issues when she met Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador for the first time at a group dinner during the last episode.

Kelly Dodd and Vicki’s feud resurfaced and the rest of the cast had a front row seat to their heated exchange. Fellow new girl Gina Kirschenheiter even chimed in to bash Vicki for her ridiculous behavior.

Kelly Dodd

At first, I was very invested in this Kelly Dodd vs. Vicki Gunvalson feud. Now I feel like this one argument has really run its course. Just in case anyone managed to forget, Kelly is livid because Vicki set up one of her friends with Kelly’s ex-husband Michael Dodd and secretly went on double dates with them.

Obviously pretty much everyone is on Kelly’s side. As per usual, Vicki refuses to see the situation from someone else’s point of view and she keeps deflecting and bringing up irrelevant facts to detract from conversation. This has happened in every single episode this season. Enough is enough. Kelly might not have Vicki on her side these days, but she has the rest of the cast and the Real Housewives of Orange County viewers in her corner.
