Real Housewives of Orange County

Kelly and Shannon reconnect

It’s obvious that Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd did not make amends filming the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 reunion. They’ve been shading each other left and right ever since.

Recently, Shannon (supposedly) claimed that Rick Leventhal proposed to Kelly with the ring that Jim Bellino gave to his ex-fiancée. Yeah, apparently Jim was engaged to someone other than Alexis Bellino.

RHOC Kelly Dodd Is Having Tax Problems

Real Housewives of Orange County’s Kelly Dodd is joining a long list of other Bravolebrities who have tax problems. The problem is they aren’t paying their taxes. Has Teresa Giudice taught her nothing?

I wonder who is the most hated?  The IRS or Vicki Gunvalson? Either way both are on a mission to get what they want from Kelly.  Vicki wants relevancy.  The IRS wants their money. However, Vicki and Kelly just made up, but will it last?

Kelly Dodd

Real Housewives of Orange County “OG” Vicki Gunvalson may have been demoted and  lost her orange for Season 14, but she still came ready to rumble. Her favorite sparring partner is co-star Kelly Dodd, and the bad blood goes way back.

Kelly accused Vicki of breaking “girl code” by fixing up Kelly’s ex-husband Michael Dodd with one of Vicki’s friends. Vicki and her then-boyfriend Steve Lodge went on double dates with the couple, but Vicki never gave Kelly a heads up. Kelly was furious.

Most Accomplished

During the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trip in Arizona, Kelly Dodd slammed Gina Kirschenheiter as an “unaccomplished woman.” Truth be told, most of us know nothing about Gina other than her propensity for ratchet hair extensions and overdone eye makeup. I have no clue how accomplished Gina is. In all fairness, I’ve never heard of any of the RHOC ladies until they joined the show. So, I only know the background information that they choose to provide.

Needless to say, Gina did not take too kindly to Kelly’s diss, especially since Kelly said this after she hit Gina on the head. And this was right after Kelly hit that bowl on Shannon Beador’s head. Neither of those actions enhanced Kelly’s credibility, but she stood by her statement about Gina.

Real Housewives Of Orange County RHOC Emily Kelly Dodd

If you crammed any more drama, hijinks, meltdowns, and hysterias (and medical issues!) into this episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County I think it would explode a la Kelly Dodd after 2 cocktails and exposure to a snarky meme. Things would just come flying out, every which way, and the only thing that would be left standing amid the rubble would be Tamra Judge and the two giant inflatable jugs she has strapped to her chest as a bullet-proof vest/getaway life raft.

I literally can’t even begin to dissect all the switching animosities and loyalties, but all I have to say is Tamra is masterful at manipulating these women in a tizzy of stupidity. And Kyle Richards thinks Lisa Vanderpump plays chess…  

Real Housewives Of Orange County RHOC Tamra Judge Vicki Gunvalson

Last week, the Real Housewives of Orange County stars were in Miami. On tonight’s episode, they had to Key West, aka the place where David Beador may have cheated on Shannon Beador.

Ironically, it seems like Shannon is the one who puts the drama into motion during this Key West trip. She tells Kelly Dodd what Vicki Gunvalson has been up to behind her back, even though Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter had been in the know. Apparently, Vicki got in touch with a woman Kelly fought with at a bar. Oh, Vicki, she really did what she could to save that orange. Unfortunately for her, it didn’t work.

Did Heather Dubrow Fire Her Assistant When She Started Maternity Leave?

We’ve got another case of “she said, she said,” folks. Real Housewives of Orange County alum Heather Dubrow’s assistant Natalie Puche accused Heather of firing her when she started maternity leave. If that’s the case, then damn, that’s colder than those hexagonal-shaped ice cubes in Heather’s freezer.

Obviously, Heather denies the claims. And, of course, Natalie deleted all of her social media posts bashing Heather. However, screenshots and receipts live on forever.

Gina Kirschenheiter Thinks Tamra Judge’s Son Ryan Vieth “Gets A Bad Rap”

The Real Housewives of Orange County episode featuring Tamra Judge’s adult son in a therapy session has spawned a lot of controversy. Ryan Vieth doesn’t have the best reputation in reality television, but to be fair, neither does his mother. Fans of the show have watched Ryan go from the tortured stepkid of Simon Barney who didn’t want a desk job to a somewhat troubled father of one, who still doesn’t want a desk job.

There has never been a great deal of sympathy for Ryan, but the public tends to root for someone who fights to change their situation instead of complaining how they got there. Ryan has also displayed some less than acceptable behavior towards the mother of his child. In addition to his relationship woes, Ryan is very vocal about his political stance, which is a polarizing subject on most occasions. Now Tamra’s resident sycophant co-star Gina Kirschenheiter shares her thoughts on Ryan and wants viewers to know he is a pretty good guy.
