I hope you’re all mentally preparing for the new season of Real Housewives of Orange County that’s about to drop. Our first blessed season without deplorable Vicki Gunvalson and wretched Tamra Judge. Of course that wouldn’t stop these thirst traps from bashing the series that made them famous. Unsurprisingly Kelly Dodd has been snapping back at the since-dropped dos amigas.

I mean, Kelly bashing pretty much anyone is hardly news. She’s been called out for racist statements  as well as scientifically ignorant COVID statements. (Scientific ignorance is a new term I’m coining especially for Kelly, btw). Lately, however, one of the most complacent and down right boring ex-Housewives has directed lot of snark Tamra’s way. That’s right. Lydia McLaughlin has entered the chat.

Lydia & Judy

Can I get an inflatable tube man dance and a wooooowwieeee!?! BAM! There’s some glitter in your face for good measure. Apparently, Lydia McLaughlin and her mother Judy Stirling from Real Housewives of Orange County are baaaAAAaack. Lydia was a total one season wonder…but TWICE. In season 8 Lydia boasted about her connection with her lord, Jesus. Meanwhile, her mom grappled with quitting “the pot” and keeping her feet off Vicki Gunvalson’s couch. In season 12 Lydia gave this show temporary new life when she rolled in looking like Charlie Chaplin. You know the scene. Never forget. I don’t even remember her mom in season 12. Must have been riveting.

Tamra Judge has even admitted she doesn’t think these recent seasons of RHOC have been their best. Can’t say I disagree. I miss the drama from Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino, and even Heather Dubrow. Call me crazy, but the TV was good.  Lydia, on the other hand, already misses Vicki on her screen. Well with taste like that…

Lydia McLaughlin defends her faith on RHOC reunion

Even though Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 just wrapped, rumors are already circulating about Season 15. I’m not even talking about the storylines. I’m referring to the long-awaited casting shakeup. Andy Cohen recently hinted that some major cast changes are on the horizon. We all know production isn’t afraid to make power moves after they demoted the OG of the OC herself, Vicki Gunvalson. She claims that she’s done with the show if she doesn’t get a full-time offer. And, of course, Vicki someone planted rumors that Vicki secured her orange for Season 15.

In the past couple days, social media snoops noticed that Tamra Judge *reportedly* removed all mentions of “RHOC” from her social media bios. To be fair, no one shared a screenshot of what her social media bios looked like before. It’s not completely certain that she even mentioned the show in the first place. Nevertheless, most of the some viewers are tired of Tamra’s snake-like ways.

Tamra Judge Admits The Last Two Seasons of Real Housewives Of Orange County “Haven’t Been Our Best”

Just a few years ago, the Real Housewives of Orange County was one of the crown jewels in Bravo’s sprawling franchise. However, even the most diehard OC apologists can admit the show has suffered a major fall from grace in the last few years from its glory days of fake cancer and Irish bus rides from hell.

And in a new interview with HollywoodLife, Tamra Judge is finally acknowledging the rough years, and promising fans a major course correction during Season 14.

Reality Star Halloween Photos- Lisa Rinna, Tamra Judge, Brielle Biermann & More!

There were some very impressive reality TV star Halloween costumes this year. Sure, some people just threw on an animal ear headband, but most of them really went all out. Lisa Rinna dressed like her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar Erika Jayne and absolutely killed it. When Erika posted the photo on her own Instagram, it took me a few seconds to realize that it was Lisa and not Erika.

Cameran Eubanks’ dressed up her daughter Palmer as fellow Southern Charm cast member Patricia Altschul. She even dressed up her neighbor’s dog (long story) Elvis to accompany Palmer as Patricia’s beloved butler Michael.

New Jersey Housewife Melissa Gorga went to the first New York Knicks game of the season with some friends. Real Housewives of Orange County’s tres amigas Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, and Tamra Judge all hung out rocking matching blazers.

Shannon Beador is waiting for

Having Shannon Beador in a scene with a new cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County is a guarantee for drama. Shannon is notorious for not getting along with the new girls on the show. This season there are two new cast members- Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter– for Shannon to be at odds with or just ignore until the come at her.
