Is Shannon crazy? Is Shannon an emotional wreck? Are the voices in Shannon’s head actually Tamra Judge reading a script from David Beador‘s iPhone on how to manipulate and condescend Shannon into a meltdown? #yes
But first a Kelly Dodd montage! Kelly is dating, dating, dating and ignoring Jolie who Michael Dodd is dating. But Vicki Gunvalson isn’t! Obviously, she is very invested in what is going on in Michael’s life.
Part one of the reunion ended with Kelly Dodd screaming into the phone and crying. Part 2 opened with VickiGunvalson apologizing for repeating a rumor she heard about Kelly using cocaine. While that is all nice and good, we know that Vicki’s apology is as sincere as the one Kelly gave for calling Vicki a “pig” and a “fat ass.” Shannon, however, ermerges as the unlikely voice of reason when she points out that the negativity and tit for tat is really hitting too low and isn’t making either woman feel (or look) good. And no amount of plastic surgery erases a bad attitude!
The most important part of any reunion is to dissect the outfits. First of all, Shannon Beador looks great! I don’t know if it’s the glowy spray tan indicating a break from Dr. Moon‘s holistic practices of wiping Shannon’s entire body in tan resistant mineral powders to ward of surface level UV free radicals, or the 30lb weight loss, or finally shedding her toxic friendship with Tamra Judge, but Shannon looks better than we’ve seen her in years. THIS is the divorced Shannon we were craving all season!
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County it was a reversal of the status quo. The Tres Amiga’s took their party hats off to stay home in pant hose. Gina Kirschencasita celebrated her 34th birthday with a depressing party filled with tarnished sequins.
Gina is officially moving into the casita when Matt Kirschenheiter visits their kids. This makes it, like, for real you guys. It’s time for her to grow up and, like, look at the like bank statements for the first time in her entire life. Kelly Dodd, Gina’s divorce guru, helps her cart baskets full of HomeGoods throw pillows and cheap blankets to the part-time living arrangement. It’s sort of like moving into a college dorm!
Puerto Vallarta is not the only vacation spot that Vicki Gunvalson enjoys. Of course her nights at Andales in Puerto Vallarta have become infamous thanks to all of the Real Housewives of Orange Countyepisodes that took place there, but it looks like she was also “whooping it up” in Greece.
She went abroad to celebrate her man Steve Lodge’s60th birthday. She also ended up spending time with her son Michael Wolfsmithand his girlfriend thanks to some flight delays that brought them together.
There has been a lot going on with all of your favorite (and least favorite) reality stars this week, which means that Instagram was full of new photos. Jax Taylor got support from his Vanderpump Rules costars (past and present love interests) Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright in Michigan at a “Celebration of Life” event to honor his father who recently passed away. Meanwhile Scheana Marie cozied up to (yet another) one of Brandi Glanville’s exes- Gerard Butler- and posed for a selfie with him, of course. She even claims that he was the one who insisted on taking the photo.
Before her last romantic relationship (I’m trying to prevent certain people from being relevant by not mentioning them), the OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson was best known for bragging talking about her insurance business, how hard she works, and how she’s bringing in a lot of money. Aside from whooping it up, Vicki was all about her business when it came to conversation topics. Vicki has to be shocked and upset to find out one of her own employees stole thousands of dollars from her business.
Obviously, anyone would be upset about that, but someone who is so focused on her business and takes so much pride in her success has to feel especially hurt and vulnerable in response to this situation. “Poor Vicki” is not a phrase that I use pretty often, but you have to admit that there is always some sort of controversy going on with her. It’s no wonder why she’s the only original cast member remaining on The Real Housewives of Orange County: the drama never stops.
