In the midst of Season 14, a social media post took The Real Housewives of Orange County by storm. And no, we’re not talking about a topless Vicki Gunvalson‘s boobs inadvertently reflected in the packaging of a free pair of Beats headphones. (Well, not this time, at least). No, it was a hiking photo of Shannon Beador‘s ex-husband David Beador and his new girlfriend Lesley Cook locking lips while completely naked. In the wilderness. In the middle of the day.
The post is everything you’re imagining, even if you’ve been lucky enough not to have had it sent to you by a fellow, disgusted RHOC fan: bodies awkwardly smushed together. Unfortunate tan lines. Hiking boots inexplicably still on feet. Naturally, every fan of the show was dying to get Shannon‘s take on the nauseating full moon, and in a new interview, she finally broke her silence.
Alexis Bellino might not be a cast member of Real Housewives of Orange County anymore, but that won’t stop the trampoline park queen from weighing in on none other than ex-castmate Tamra Judge.
In the latest episode of RHOC, we start to see the walls closing in on Tamra, partly thanks to Kelly Dodd telling Tamra’s puppet best friend, Shannon Beador that Tamra said she is “getting fat” again. As childish of an insult that may be, gaining weight must be the ultimate sin in Orange County (insert eye roll, please) and viewers everywhere gasped at the injustice of it all. Or was that just me? Obviously not because despite Alexis claiming she doesn’t keep up with the show, she certainly had a lot to say about the pint-sized pot-stirrer.
Before Vicki Gunvalson hugged it out with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador at the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 reunion, Vicki was still in touch with RHOC alum Alexis Bellino. You know, the woman who Tamra infamously nicknamed “Jesus Jugs.”
This was probably because Tamra and Shannon refused to acknowledge Vicki. Now that the Tres Amigas are (unfortunately) going strong, Vicki’s relationship with Alexis no longer exists. Is that a coincidence? Alexis says it’s not.
It’s been so tough to watch the disintegration of Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson’s friendship this season on Real Housewives of Orange County. It seemed like they had a true friendship, beyond the show. However, it appears that Gina pulled a Cady Heron in Mean Girls and ditched her old friends for the Plastics, I mean the Tres Amigas.
Most of the RHOC viewers have rallied behind Emily. I mean, come on. How sad was it when Gina just got up from that fashion show to ditch Emily so she could sit with Shannon Beador? How sad was it to see Gina making fun of Emily with her new
master BFF Tamra Judge? It was also so awkward when Emily wanted Gina to hit Vegas fresh off of her DUI and in the middle of her divorce. There is a whole lot to unpack. The relationship really fell apart this season. Will they be able to bounce back? Or is Gina under Tamra’s spell?
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.
When you think about it, Bravo really changed the face of reality television. Sure, Bravo didn’t invent the genre, but over the years, the network has taken risks to start a wide variety of reality themed shows–from real estate to yachting and more. Many of these shows have been very successful and have been game changers in the reality television world.
Of course, the franchise Bravo is probably best known for is the Real Housewives. Who knew in 2006 that the franchise would still be going strong in 2019. From the original Real Housewives of Orange County, the show has landed in cities from New York to Dallas to Beverly Hills. One of the most successful spin-offs has been the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Recently, Peter Thomas, who used to be a regular on the show when married to Cynthia Bailey, shared his thoughts about how the men on the Housewives shows are portrayed.
The divorce between former Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan Edmonds and Jim Edmonds is shaping up to be a big old mess. After news of Jim’s sexting scandal broke in June, the couple seemed to be working things out. Of course, all that changed in late October when the couple split amid Meghan’s allegations that Jim had an inappropriate relationship with one of their nannies, Carly Wilson. At that point, many well-known couples would have taken a social media and press break. Not our Meghan and Jim!
Since their split, the two have been engaged in an ongoing war of words and damage control. Jim denied the nanny accusations and said Meghan was “negligent” and “careless” to accuse him of nanny tomfoolery. Jim then backtracked a bit and said that he was saddened that Meghan was hurt. Meghan, of course, couldn’t leave well enough alone and accused Jim of “drinking and partying with much younger women.” More drama than a telenovela! Of course, that couldn’t be the end of it–not with these two.
