Look here’s the thing: at this point trying to center a whole season around whether or not Shannon is nuts is a moot point. It’s like the most rhetorical question ever asked of the Real Housewivesuniverse. It’s such a DUH that it’s like asking a 45-year-old if they believe in Santa. Or if wine should be included in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.
The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion looks a lot better than every episode this season. Combined. Sure, they’ve only released a trailer. We don’t know how the actual episodes will be, but the trailer looks so intense.
They are ALL screaming at each other. I’m here for it. This is the drama I craved all season. Let’s hope the ladies deliver.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County it was a reversal of the status quo. The Tres Amiga’s took their party hats off to stay home in pant hose. Gina Kirschencasita celebrated her 34th birthday with a depressing party filled with tarnished sequins.
Gina is officially moving into the casita when Matt Kirschenheiter visits their kids. This makes it, like, for real you guys. It’s time for her to grow up and, like, look at the like bank statements for the first time in her entire life. Kelly Dodd, Gina’s divorce guru, helps her cart baskets full of HomeGoods throw pillows and cheap blankets to the part-time living arrangement. It’s sort of like moving into a college dorm!
Nevertheless, Emily jumped in to defend her man and told Kellyshe would “kill her.” Other than that, Emily doesn’t really have a ton of drama to resolve with other cast members during the Season 13 reunion. Or at least that’s what it seems like based on the episodes up until this point.
Every woman weighed in on Shannon’s antics with new Housewife Emily Simpson compared Shannon to her own mother who she says suffered with depression. I’m no psychic, but I can’t help anticipating that Shannon (and probably Tamra Judge) will rip into Emily’s comparison during the reunion episodes.
On top of that, with Emily and Gina Kirschenheiter joining the show as new Housewives, it’s been a pretty tough transition. They have spent so much time “introducing” them to the viewers and not enough time showing them as integrated members of the group. Short story long, there just hasn’t been enough drama. Thankfully Tamra promises that things are going to heat up.
Production needs to give Emily Simpson’s husband Shane Simpson an orange to hold up during the opening credits. He has contributed more to this season of Real Housewives of Orange County than some of the actual Housewives. Sure, he’s rubbed pretty much every viewer the wrong way, but at least he’s given us something to talk about thanks to his war of words with Kelly Dodd.
