Braunwyn Windham-Burke joined Real Housewives of Orange County last season, and she was full of surprises! We learned that Braunwyn has a very complicated relationship with her mother, Cyndi-Lauper look-alike Dr. Deb. Braunwyn revealed that she and her husband, Sean Burke, occasionally have threesomes. And Braunwyn really liked making out with Tamra Judge.
After having seven children, Braunwyn threw a raunchy lactation party to celebrate the end of her days nursing kids. Of course, all of this behavior caused “OG” Vicki Gunvalson to have an epic meltdown at the RHOC reunion, where she called the choices that Braunwyn made “disgusting” and accused her of ruining the franchise. Of course, Braunwyn never got drunk and peed on someone’s bed. Stay classy, Vicki.
Gina Kirschenheiter is living her best life right now, and after splitting from her ex, she totally deserves it. Her former husband, Matt Kirschenheiter, cheated on the Real Housewives of Orange County star. In June of 2019, Matt was charged with felony domestic violence after he allegedly assaulted Gina.
Now Gina has announced that she is returning to RHOC for her third season as a full-time Housewife. Not only that, but she has a new man in her life—Travis Mullen. And the couple has taken a giant leap forward in their relationship.
The upcoming Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County is going to be very different. Gone are two of the tres amigas. Last season, the “OG of the OC,” Vicki Gunvalson, was demoted to be a Friend of the Housewives. After having a melt-down during the reunion, she quit after she learned that she would not be getting her orange back. But don’t worry–Vicki is getting her own podcast.
Tamra Judge also walked away after she was only offered three episodes to complete her storyline. That is less than a demotion. Ouch! Now there is only one amiga left–Shannon Beador. And if Shannon returns, it looks like she will be spending a lot of time with Kelly Dodd.
The messy divorce between Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan Edmonds and Jim Edmonds continues to play out in the public eye. This has to be one of the most acrimonious divorces in Housewives history.
The couple’s marriage was rocked by a sexting scandal because Jim “Dad Jeans” Edmonds seems to be incapable of
keeping his Dad jeans on being faithful. Then Meghan accused Jim of cheating with their nanny. Both Jim and the nanny denied the allegations.
One person was involved in just about every dramatic moment on Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14. Tamra Judge–take a bow! Whether she was stirring up trouble behind the scenes or confronting people to their faces, Tamra was working hard to keep her orange. She helped the recently demoted Vicki Gunvalson spread sex train rumors about co-star Kelly Dodd.
Tamra talked viciously about Shannon Beador behind Shannon’s back. During Vicki and Steve Lodge’s engagement party, which was the RHOC season finale, Tamra got very drunk. Again. She ended up hiding in some shrubs during the party, having a hysterical fit because Kelly tried to involve herself in Jim Bellino’s lawsuit against Tamra. Jim Bellino, RHOC alum Alexis Bellino’s ex-husband, is suing Tamra for $1 million dollars. Shannon was later dismissed from the lawsuit. Tamra is drowning in legal fees. Gina Kirschenheiter had the unenviable task of talking Tamra out of the bushes at the end of the party.
Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County will forever be known as the season when “OG” Vicki Gunvalson was demoted. Vicki worked over-time to try and win her orange back. After Vicki’s tantrum at the reunion, I would say that it isn’t likely.
At the same time, another RHOC cast member was desperately trying to save her full-time position. Tamra Judge, who joined the cast in Season 3, was busy stirring up trouble among her co-stars. She helped Vicki bring out the sex train rumor about Kelly Dodd. Tamra also spent a lot of time making out with newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Tamra was all over the media commenting about anything to stay relevant.
Real Housewives of Orange County was filled with drama this season. The unthinkable happened when “OG” Vicki Gunvalson was demoted to being a Friend of the Housewives. Her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, even popped the question. But nothing distracted Vicki from trying to grab her RHOC orange back. She brought up a rumor (along with Tamra Judge’s help) that co-star Kelly Dodd was a participant in a sex train. Stay classy, Tamra and Vicki.
Kelly infuriated Tamra and Shannon Beador by involving herself in Jim Bellino’s $1 million dollar lawsuit against them. Shannon and Tamra are drowning in legal bills from the lawsuit.
Meghan Edmonds has had a rough year. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum dealt with a sexting scandal because her husband, Jim “Dad Jeans” Edmonds was caught with his pants down. But don’t worry–Jim assured the world that he didn’t technically cheat. Sure, Jim.
Meghan also alleged that Jim was cheating with their nanny. Then Meghan received some more devastating news. According to Radar Online, one of the couple’s twin sons, Hart, was diagnosed with Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). It is a type of “irreversible brain damage.” The former RHOC star has been devoted to getting Hart the early intervention that he needs.
