It’s tough to be the new girl on a Real Housewives show. All of the
older more seasoned cast members are scared of losing the spotlight, and ultimately, their full-time status on the show. Braunwyn Windham-Burke will make her Real Housewives of Orange County debut on tonight’s Season 14 premiere.
Notably, the OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, has been demoted to part-time status. So, those are some
obnoxious big shoes for Braunwyn to fill. Does she have what it takes to last on RHOC? Or will she be a “one and done” like Peggy Sulahian or Peggy Tanous? Well, at least her name isn’t Peggy, so she doesn’t have to deal with that one-season curse. Then again, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson each got a second season after contributing zero during their rookie years. RHOC is struggling to say the least. Does Braunwyn have what it takes to resuscitate the original Real Housewives show!? Let’s hope so. There’s a lot riding on this, Braunwyn.
I’ve always wondered what happens to the Real Housewives who get booted from their shows before they’re ready. In my head, there’s some sort of former Housewives support group that they all attend. Maybe there’s a group chat where they talk shit about the current cast members.
Even though Lydia McLaughlin is not on Real Housewives of Orange County anymore, she and her husband Doug McLaughlin are still promoting Nobleman Magazine. This time they are bringing many former Housewives together for this event.
It would be nice to say that Season 13 of Real Housewives of Orange County started out with a bang, but that sadly is not what happened. At all. After a dismally boring Season 12, the Season 13 premiere was just OK. Pretty much nothing happened, but let’s hope that the ladies are just warming up.
Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador were on their A-Game when they were Andy Cohen’s guests on Watch What Happens Live last night. Again, let’s just hope that’s a good sign of what to expect this season.
Tonight we welcome Real Housewives Of Orange County back into our collective consciousness. I may be the lone one, but I’m excited! Before moving into new dramas let’s recap what happened last season!
Season 12 of Real Housewives Of Orange County certainly had its high points (Vicki Gunvalson‘s Blanket Jackson moment in Iceland) and low points (Peggy. Period.).
Lydia McLaughlin returned
to use free advertising for the launch of her new magazine after a long hiatus to contemplating what Alexis Jesus would do as a Real Housewife, and Vicki remained – and remained on the outs with everyone. Heather Dubrow decided she didn’t want to expose her marriage to anymore speculative gossip and quit, so instead enter: Peggy Sulahian. Someone in casting was on Vicki’s Vodka that day!
Happy Friday the 13th! We have a new group of reality star sightings for you this week! Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey looked younger than ever at the ATL Live On the Park Season IX: Blaque at Park Tavern event in Atlanta.
Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Peggy Sulahian attended an event, along with fellow Bravolebrities Mercedes “MJ” Javid and Vanderpump Rules’ Jeremy Madix.
Yolanda Hadid and Bethenny Frankel were both spotted out and about in NYC.
Check out these and more reality star sightings in the gallery below!
The First Ladies of Bravo are soon to be upon us again! Bravo just announced that Real Housewives Of Orange County is coming back for season 13 with some casting surprises in store!
I’m probably the last surviving Real Housewives Of Orange County fan, but oh well! After years of toxicity I am so ready for a redemption season where Vicki Gunvalson is back in Tamra Judge‘s good graces (at least temporarily) and Shannon Beador is out on the dating scene and kicking David Beador where it counts. In the bank account, naturally! I’d also love to see the zany fun Shannon of her first season again.
A lot of your favorite reality TV shows shared photos from their Easter and Passover celebrations with their families.
Real Housewives alums Heather Dubrow and Siggy Flicker had double the fun and celebrated both Easter and Passover- and documented both holidays, with photos, of course.
Potomac Housewife Monique Samuels enjoyed an egg hunt with her children and neighbors. Farrah Abraham’s daughter Sophia Abraham, Cary Deuber’s daughter Zuri, Ali Fedotowsky’s daughter Molly, and other reality TV offspring celebrated Easter by hunting for eggs.
Most of the Real Housewives of Orange County fans will rejoice over this news: Peggy Sulahian will not be back next season. She seemed like a nice enough person, but she really didn’t fit in with the cast at all. That’s not necessarily a bad thing since the last season of the show was its worst one yet.
Nevertheless, a cast shake up was much-needed. Peggy was not super close with any of her costars, she was not (intentionally) funny, and she just wasn’t a big hit with (most of) the fans. So did she leave the show or was she fired?
