Shannon Beador

Instagram Roundup: Melissa Gorga, NeNe Leakes, Tom Schwartz, Camille Grammer, & More!

After years of very public feuding, Brandi Glanville, Eddie Cibrian, and LeAnn Rimes all united as a family to support Brandi and Eddie’s son when he graduated from culinary school. This trio has come a long way from calling each other out in interviews and social media.

It’s always unexpected to see those three in one photo. Another surprising photo that popped up on Instagram was Jill Zarin hanging out with 50 Cent. She even captioned it with “Always a great time with @50cent.” Always? Have Jill and 50 been in the same room multiple times? What’s the story there? Did he buy a rug from Zarin Fabrics? I can’t help being so curious about the behind-the-scenes backstory on this photo.

Gina Kischenheiter

Slowly but surely the newest Real Housewives of Orange County cast members are coming into the circle. Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson finally met all the women in the cast during the last episode and hopefully this means there are some juicy story lines on the horizon.

Of course Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd’s feud dominated the group gathering, but that didn’t stop Gina from sharing her opinion. She is making a name for herself on this show and she’s just saying what everyone else is thinking. Of course Vicki and Shannon Beador did not like the new girl sharing her thoughts she just met them, but she wasn’t saying anything that (most of) the viewers disagreed with. Vicki definitely broke girl code when she set up Kelly’s ex-husband with a friend and secretly went on double dates with them. There is no doubt about that.

Emily Simpson

At this point, it’s a pretty easy rookie season for new Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Emily Simpson. She hasn’t really had to deal with any drama. However, she got a tiny taste of the cast issues when she met Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador for the first time at a group dinner during the last episode.

Kelly Dodd and Vicki’s feud resurfaced and the rest of the cast had a front row seat to their heated exchange. Fellow new girl Gina Kirschenheiter even chimed in to bash Vicki for her ridiculous behavior.

Shannon doesn't like Gina

Being a Real Housewife isn’t an easy job, especially for the new girls on the show. Joining a Real Housewives show is usually an uphill battle. None of the Housewives want anyone coming for her crown. More times than not, the new girl is met with a very icy reception from the other cast members.

Luckily for Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter they had each other for support since they joined Real Housewives of Orange County at the same time. That still doesn’t mean they’re having an easy time though. Sure, they don’t have any actual drama, but they’re also not a part of the core group- not just yet. And we all know how much Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador dislike new cast members. They will have a lot to prove if they really want to be in the fold with the Orange County clique.

Orange County Housewife Emily Simpson Thinks Vicki Gunvalson Made The Worst First Impression; Says Tamra Judge Is The Biggest Pot Stirrer

At this point, Emily Simpson has not had to deal with any drama on Real Housewives of Orange County. She will eventually though. For now the new cast member just has opinions on the controversies involving her costars.

Even so she did just get to a major Bravolebrity milestone: her first appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

Vicki GUnvalson is called out for breaking Girl Code

Just when I thought there was going to be a season of everyone getting along on Real Housewives Of Orange County, enter two new girls and the fatuous ego of one Vicki Gunvalson who will not understand human relationships no matter how many zillions of times it makes her Housewives reunions a living hell.

The so-called Three Amigas are banned back from Mexico worse for the wear, but they’re cemented by friendship bracelets (we saw how well those worked out the last time!) and added a dance to their lineup that’s essentially a hokeypokey with hip thrust – perfect for these three in denial cheeseballs. Tamra Judge is especially bad off. She went from a hot glam’ma to a deflated scooter-wielding spring break failure. It’s like a Tina Fey movie where the uncool girl who never got to do spring break goes back as a chaperone in her 40’s. At least Tamra has Vicki to push her around to all the hot docs in OC. Vicki was everyone’s mama this episode, wasn’t she? Like getting that slap in the face that Gina Kirchenwallerhallerdingdong is the same age as Briana – and just as opinionated about Vicki’s boondoggles! Youngins today – no respect for their elders…

Shannon welcomes Tamra & Vicki

Season 12 of Real Housewives of Orange County ended with Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge making peace with Vicki Gunvalson during a group hug. Three episodes into Season 13, Shannon and Tamra are comfortable enough to give Vicki unsolicited relationship advice during a drunk heart to heart.

They theorized that Steve Lodge might not be the one for Vicki– based on zero evidence. That’s really not a great move to make after recently reconciling with someone, but it was much more interesting to watch than anything last season. At least Shannon and Tamra are talking to Vicki this year.

Vicki Gunvalson Slams Kelly For Discussing Their Feud With Her 11-Year-Old Daughter; Thinks Kelly Is “Overacting To Create Sympathy And Drama”

Love her or hate her, Vicki Gunvalson is the “OG of the OC” for a reason. This woman always as an interesting story line on Real Housewives of Orange County. During the last episode, she had two. She is and has always pulled her weight on this show.

Yes, she’s been extremely polarizing, but overall she’s given the longtime viewers so much enjoyment. She still has no idea why she offended Kelly Dodd so much even though she set up Kelly’s ex Michael Dodd with one of her close friends, went on several double dates with them, and purposely kept it a secret from Kelly.
