It’s been quite a ride for Shannon Beador since she joined Real Housewives of Orange County. Since we’ve “known” her, Shannon has weathered many storms (see what I did there? I’ll show myself out). First, there was her rocky road to a relationship with Heather Dubrow. Then there was THE AFFAIR, which sent Shannon on a crusade to save her marriage to dead eyes David Beador. Finally, there was the separation and inevitable divorce. Nine lemons in a bowl weren’t enough to save that ship.
Shannon’s life has always been something to watch. In Season 14 of RHOC, I think we’re going to see a completely different Shannon. Since last season, she’s totally come into her own as an individual. She started her own QVC food line, got back in shape – and started dating again with the help of former frenemy Kelly Dodd. Now it looks like Shannon is on to the next!
The ladies of the Real Housewives of Orange County should regularly pray to whatever reality TV deity has blessed us all with Gina Kirschenheiter. Her life is a hot mess. That is sad for her and her kids, but it makes great TV. Her dumpster fire of an existence also seems to have revitalized the franchise. Or at least I hope it will.
In April of 2018, Gina filed for divorce from her husband, Matt Kirschenheiter, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She then got herself in some legal trouble for drunk driving and talking on the phone while driving. Girl, do you not have Uber? And Bluetooth? Those are both, like, the easiest crimes to avoid. Earlier this summer, Matt was arrested for suspicion of domestic violence against Gina. Gina then filed a restraining order against Matt, which resulted in him being ordered to stay 100 yards away from Gina and the children. He has, however, gained supervised visits with the kids since then.
The season premiere of Real Housewives of Orange County is right around the corner. The reveal of the cast photo for Season 14 of RHOC rocked our world because it was missing the one and only OG of the OC. The cast photo does feature returning Housewives Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, and newbie, Braunwyn Windham-Burke. (The newbie’s name sounds like it was ripped from Days of Our Lives – so I’m expecting a lot from her).
Vicki Gunvalson may not be holding an orange this season as a full-time housewife, but you can’t break her spirit! In spite of taking a reportedly serious pay cut, Vicki has spoken out about being demoted, sharing with fans that she is still, “proud to be the “OG of the OC.” (Because duh). Vicki has even received public support from long-time frenemy Tamra. She may be in a diminished role, but she’s not letting it break up the Tres Amigas or stop her from getting money where she can!
Wedding bells are ringing, y’all. It seems like most of the Vanderpump Rules cast has found a significant other. Joining the
future divorce marriage club will be Lala Kent and HER MAN, Randall Emmett. Together for several years now, Lala and Rand have endured trying times in their relationship, traveling the peaks and valleys of love. They were engaged to be wed in 2018 and Lala is already planning the festivities. And we all know how much Bravo loves a tragedy sophisticated marriage ceremony.
Fans have certainly seen their share of wedding spin-off shows. NeNe Leakes had one. Kandi Burruss also shared her journey to the altar. Kim Zolciak got an entire show after her bride-to-be antics were featured. Now there is speculation that Randall and Lala have something going on behind the scenes. Thanks to social media and
desperation the desire to tease, viewers are wondering if Lala and Randall are filming a little spinoff of their own.
Fans are eagerly anticipating Real Housewives of Dallas Season 4. Confessional interview photos hit social media, which included all of last season’s cast members except for Cary Deuber. It seems like she got the Vicki Gunvalson treatment with a demotion to Friend of the Housewives status.
Ironically enough, it seems like she was replaced by someone who has the same first name, but with a different spelling. RHOD cast member Kameron Westcott hinted at the casting change. Even the new Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke got in on the social media hints.
Can you believe it is already reunion time for the Real Housewives of New York? The season flew by and we will soon be searching Bravo for all-day marathons and RHONY updates. And what a season it was. Cabaret overkill courtesy of Luann de Lesseps. Bethenny Frankel experiencing the tragic loss of Dennis Shields. Tinsley Mortimer’s latest–and maybe final–break up with Scott Kluth.
Plus, the unforgettable drunken antics of Sonja Morgan in Miami. Alcohol friendly Dorinda Medley actually completing a season mostly sober! OG Ramona Singer was rather low key, other than being her usual demanding, crass and frequently rude self. She did have a few disagreements with the other ladies, but one castmate in particular seemed to rub her the wrong way.
Ramona Singer is the “OG” of Real Housewives of New York. She has been on the show since day one, and she never left, unlike Bethenny Frankel, who left and returned. Luann “Cabaret” De Lesseps was at one time demoted to be a lowly Friend of the Housewives.
Ramona has, as always, been busy causing drama during Season 11. At Barbara Kavovit’s clambake, Ramona made her own lobster goodie bags by shoving lobsters in a plastic bag to bring home. At another time, Ramona was caught kissing serial Housewife dater Harry Dubin. Why, Ramona? Why?
Gretchen Rossi has given birth to her first child. Following a years-long struggle with infertility, the former Real Housewives of Orange County star welcomed daughter Skylar Gray on Wednesday, July 10.
The baby’s father is Gretchen‘s fiancé and longtime love and OG Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Slade Smiley.
