The last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was a 15 car pile-up of calamity and all roads lead to Tamra Judge. So far this season, Tamra has injected herself into everyone’s personal business in what appears to be an astronomical effort to get that Head Bitch In Charge title. What it might do is blow up in her face and just leave her with, Head Bitch.
When Tamra isn’t getting attention by spreading rumors or giving Vicki Gunvalson a reason to exist, she turns to family issues. Tamra’s oldest son, Ryan Vieth, has experienced several crises of a
financial personal nature. Ryan recently opened up about his current struggles on camera and Tamra’s husband Eddie Judge had… thoughts. Let’s just say his thoughts didn’t go over too well.
Real Housewives Of Orange County is all about mommy issues this season, isn’t it? From the women having them with their own mothers (Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke) to having them with their own children (Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador), to being questionable mothers themselves (almost everyone).
Last night Shannon and Braunwyn tried to navigate sending children to college, Tamra sent Ryan Vieth to counseling, and all that was like blah, blah, blah… yada, yada, yada because the truly horrific, scarring, awfulness was the true exposure of just what a terrible person Tamra is. So much so that I actually feel bad for Racist Ryan.
Tamra has just returned from this truly life-altering and earth-shattering vacation in Scottsdale, AZ where she learned a pivotal message about being the leader of the mean girls: you can never turn your back – not even for a day. Not even for a hike with your husband. In Tamra’s absence, she’s gotten a slew of angry text messages from Kelly, and Shannon is basically giving her the silent treatment.
On last week’s Real Housewives Of Orange County, Tamra Judge finally got called out for being the trouble-making pot stirrer she truly is, and tonight Tamra struggles to understand who is turning on her.
Gina Kirschenheiter spills the beans to Tamra that all the women are questioning her friendship and Tamra decides to blame the entire thing on Shannon Beador.
Tamra Judge has not survived 12 seasons of the Real Housewives of Orange County by being the nice girl. Housewife fans know that being agreeable often results in contracts not being renewed. As we have seen over the years, being “nice” is not always second nature to conflict veteran Tamra. We have watched her be shady with Gretchen Rossi, mock Alexis Bellino and throw wine in Jeana Keough’s face. And allegedly running her mouth got Tamra slapped with a million dollar lawsuit courtesy of Jim Bellino.
More recently, Tamra gaslighted Shannon Beador by playing up to her hypochondria following a bizarre mallet gonging by Kelly Dodd. So, where does Tamra’s pot-stirring nature end? For some Housewives, distasteful behavior stops when the cameras are turned off. For Tamra, the lines are a little more blurred.
The Housewives aren’t the only characters on Real Housewives of Orange County. Unfortunately, viewers have been subjected to Tamra Judge’s son Ryan Vieth for far too many years. When Ryan’s name is mentioned, it’s rarely for a good reason.
And then there’s Gina Kirschenheiter’s soon-to-be-ex-husband Matt Kirschenheiter. He has never appeared on RHOC, which was a red flag from the start. Nevertheless, his actions have propelled her storyline. And news headlines. He cheated on her, allegedly threatened to kill her, and even filed for spousal support. Yes, the backbone of this show is the women, but the side characters certainly do bring their own drama. And these two side characters are both single…and ready to mingle. Yikes.
All Shannon Beador wanted to do was plan a relaxing and healing trip for her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars. The Housewives journeyed to Miraval Arizona Resort and Spa to get their zen on. Their trip would include healing time, spa treatments, and much-needed bonding. What could go wrong?
Kelly Dodd is the answer to that question. From the moment that she arrived, RHOC’s resident hot-head was sarcastic and cranky. She was not looking forward to seeing her newly demoted enemy, Vicki Gunvalson, who was scheduled to arrive the next day.
I don’t know who put Real Housewives Of Orange County on Adderall but thank you Tamra Judge‘s Jesus because this season is so good. So much was packed into a 10 hour time period it was like drama sardines.
Shannon Beador is at Urgent Care deciding if she wants to press charges against Kelly Dodd for assault, or assault Kelly with guilt tripping and shaming over the harm she’s done to Shannon’s zen cortex. As if that’s gonna work. HA! Also if the police showed up to question Kelly she would assume they were strippers and start propositioning them.
Being the good friend that she is, Tamra is in the doctor’s office laughing behind her hand. Tamra is thanking herself for all the good work she is doing driving a huge, HUGE wedge between Shannon and Kelly after conniving Shannon her leaking spinal fluid was making her go blind.
Ahhhh… the Shannon Beador show is back on Real Housewives Of Orange County. We all knew this nice, thoughtful, peace-loving Shannon couldn’t last. Somebody moved a leaky faucet to her sanity corner!
Still, you gotta feel bad for Shannon. She tried to plan a relaxing trip to the exclusive Miraval so the women could find peace and serenity (now!), but she’s friends with people like Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson. So it all went to pot – or should I say, dong. But first, sexxy.
