We all remember the double dates debacle. That just seemed like something that would blow over eventually. It did not and somehow it snowballed into Vicki accusing Kelly of doing cocaine and not spending time with her daughter. Andy Cohen broked some semblance of peace during the reunion filming, but that was temporary. Clearly.
Let’s be honest. The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion episodes have been better than the regular episodes this season. Then again, that’s not saying a lot. The ladies are really bringing it. FINALLY! Let’s hope this continues into Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14.
Why are we even having a Real Housewives of Orange Countyreunion? Well, maybe we do need one, but not one in multiple parts. Long story short, the Real Housewives of Orange County cast did not come through this season.
However, the first part of the RHOC reunion was better than the whole season. Let’s just hope the same holds true for the second.
When Kelly Dodd first joined Real Housewives of Orange County, she was far from a fan favorite. Eventually, she became a polarizing character with some good points and plenty of entertaining arguments. Now that Kelly is on her third season, it’s safe to say she was the only reason to watch this season.
Pretty much nothing happened for most of the season. Thankfully, Kelly gave us comic relief, genuine emotion, and some iconic insults. “Little bitch,” anyone? As far as (most of) the fans are concerned, Kelly Dodd is the queen on Real Housewives of Orange County. Just don’t say that to the OG of the OC. Vicki Gunvalson accused Kelly of doing cocaine during the Season 13 reunion and Kelly is livid. Kelly is so upset that she claims she doesn’t want to return unless Vicki gets fired.
The expectations for a Real Housewives reunion are pretty high. Do the women always deliver? Unfortunately, that is not the case every single time. It’s tough to predict, especially during a so-so season of Real Housewives of Orange County. It is a lot better than Season 12, but that’s really not saying much.
The one thing I learned is that Vicki Gunvalson really needs to consider a career in politics because she can twist words and spin like no other. It’s rather impressive in some bizarro universe led by Andy Cohen and morality policed by Heather Dubrow.
The reunion starts with a ride back in time to Glamis. The ladies watch the ATV flip time and time again. Just so you know… Heather escaped injury because she even does car accidents perfectly and better than you.
Meghan shared in her Bravo blog that she’s happy for viewers to see her and Jim they way they really are for once. “Part One of the reunion was pretty low-key, but now Part Two has started to dive into some more of the drama! Yikes! The best part about this week was that Jimmy joined me on the couch and I’m really glad the audience got to see a more relaxed and engaging side of my husband and our marriage. It’s kind of crazy to see us portrayed the way we actually are every day for the first time on TV!”
Shannon acknowledged that part one of the reunion wasn’t all that juicy, “The bottom line is, there was a lot of ground to cover, so you are going to see the most tame stuff [first]. Parts two and three of the reunion are going to be crazy.” A follower insinuated that Shannon, Heather, Meghan, and Tamra planned to ambush Vicki at the reunion. “There’s no planned ambush,” she insisted. “Everyone went in there saying their truth. When you see the reunion parts two and three you’re going to be blown away. It’s mind blowing.”
