Real Housewives of Orange County is over. It ended on the beach with a womp womp from producers and editors. They said without really saying, “we tried it without Tamra Judge. Replaced her with real live charisma vacuum, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas. And we know, it didn’t work.” The whole series needs an overhaul.
None of these women are natural together. The only thing they have in common is not liking Braunwyn Windham-Burke. The reunion was hard to watch. There was a lot of deflection from every single woman on stage, except Gina Kirschenheiter. Kelly Dodd is not a Covidiot, she’s Black! Braunwyn isn’t a mess. She just had seven kids with her husband because she’s an alcoholic! Emily Simpson does too support LGBTQ people. She went to a club with drag queens that one time! Deflections and irrationality everywhere, and Gina is happy to call it out.
Every former Real Housewife claims that she left the show to “pursue other opportunities,” but pretty much none of them ever quit. In fact, many of them are completely unprepared for life without those Bravo paychecks, overcharging for Cameo videos and peddling laxative teas on Instagram to support themselves and pay for heavily discounted Botox injections.
Sure, some of them are smart with their money, but, at this point, financial issues are a staple among the Housewives, especially the former cast members. It’s par for the course, in all honesty.
Ever since Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson walked away from Real Housewives of Orange County, they have not been able to stay away from drama. Both ladies wanted a full-time position. Tamra was offered a paltry three-episode deal to finish her storyline, but she refused.
Then, in late February, Bravo’s Andy Cohen confirmed that Tamra was going to be part of RHOC Season 15. We don’t know how much of a role she will play.
Jeana Keough has been wearing the same hairstyle since the eighties, but that doesn’t mean her head isn’t full of great ideas! Jeana was, of course, present at Bravo Con this past weekend. People who couldn’t attend the way overpriced convention were able to catch Jeana on the Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen stage for a hot second this past Sunday. I mean it when I say that I admire Jeana for amping her face up a bit, and keeping that hair. Hot roller bangs forever!
Was anyone else beyond excited to catch WWHL last Sunday? You could feel Andy’s excitement and it was like he read my mind by closing out the show with Kim Zolciak Biermann’s Don’t Be Tardy. Anyways, for those who watched, you know we really didn’t get to hear much from the Real Housewives of Orange County on stage. There were so many people in attendance, so many Bravolebrities, that the interviews had little info. That doesn’t mean that Jeana was quiet. In fact, she shared some amazing ideas in interviews at the convention.
Reality Tea is ranking of every, single Housewife from every, single season from almost every Real Housewives franchise. You can find Part 1 of our rankings here. Now we finally return with Part 2 (aka the big ole mush in the middle)!
In Part 1 we mostly covered most Housewives who were either too crazy to be legit, or didn’t make much of an impact, or were just so miscast and off it was painful. Some of them were too nice, or too timid, or not rich enough, or too desperate. If she’s only a Housewife for a season, there’s usually a reason!
Below we continue to analyze and dissect the ladies from Real Housewives Of New Jersey, Real Housewives Of Atlanta, Real Housewives Of Potomac, Real Housewives Of New York, Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, Real Housewives Of Dallas, Real Housewives of Miami, and Real Housewives Of Orange County. We’re skipping the short-lived Real Housewives Of DC, because no one even remembers who they are. Well except for one…

Reality Tea is ranking ALL the Housewives from every season and every city! Our list is broken down into three parts with Housewives ranked from worst to ‘best’ (or best of the worst, if you will). Below is Part 1.
What makes a superior species of Housewives? Is it class? Money? Fabulous plastic surgery and good shoes? Beautiful home? A revolving door of crazy that keeps us on our cheaply-clad toes? Is it a supportive husband? An in-home zoo of fabulous miniature fluff balls clad in their own designer wardrobe? Is it a witty zinger or indispensable advice? Is it their ability to rewrite history without irony? To crack open the egg of their emotional travails in front of cameras? Or is it their ability to deftly control the scenery while cracking a Chanel whip?

This is an insensitive thing to say, but I’ll never understand why Lynne Curtin is not a cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County anymore. There is always something dramatic going on with her family. Unfortunately, her daughter Alexa Curtin has been arrested for a DUI.
Recently, Alexa filed a suit after she got pulled over at a traffic stop in April 2014 and alleged that she was raped. Now Orange County police officials are speaking out about her accusation.

I feel like there should be some sort of Real Kids spin off show within the Real Housewives franchise, because it seems like a lot of them have inherited a penchant from drama from their reality TV mothers and there others who have taken things even further with legal troubles and other controversies.
The Real Housewives kids have caused a lot of trouble over the years…from DUIs to public hair pulling to domestic violence accusations. There have been plenty of headlines about these reality star kids – thanks to their mothers’ fame – throughout the years.
