Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County is coming to a close next week with the finale. For the first time in a long time, a RHOC season has flown by! Gina Kirschenheiter’s tragic styling storyline carried the show, along with Kelly Dodd’s usual antics. We also got to know Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who I think is a good addition to the cast. Tamra Judge stirred the pot, Shannon Beador shrieked her way to a positive edit, and the demoted OG Vicki Gunvalson worked her ass off to get engaged stay relevant. All in all, the ladies stepped it up this season.
Oh, and don’t forget Emily Simpson was there – crying and sexy dancing in front of her father-in-law while her twerp husband, Shane Simpson, failed the bar for the millionth time. RHOC has been stale for quite a few seasons. This one, however, has a real edge to it that we may see shine through at the reunion.
Real Housewives of Orange County has been a rollercoaster of emotions! Last week’s episode had Vicki Gunvalson shouting her lungs out like she was on a snowy mountain in Canada. Kelly Dodd did what she does. Which is go extremely low with body and looks-shaming. On top of this, we had to see Tamra Judge’s blurred out breasts and Shannon Beador’s Spanx as they ran from security. Leaving Vicki far behind to fall down again.
In all, the Key West trip is taking us places. From Drag bars to the Cum Bucket – I am on board with this Kelly train. Driving all of the drama on this trip is the genuine thirst hatred Vicki and Kelly have for each other. Will these two ever be on the same page again?
Well, you gotta know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em. Unfortunately, Vicki Gunvalson needs practice in the game of life. The demoted Real Housewives of Orange County star is
desperate still not clear on when to leave things alone. Even Vicki’s part time status might be too much for fans at this juncture. Viewers have been patiently waiting for Vicki to provide some sort of substance to the show, which is lacking amid stupid rumors and ungodly inappropriate displays of affection.
Vicki is trying, you guys. Trying to remain relevant. But her efforts may be futile. What Vicki does succeed in is being a complete and total hypocrite. Last week, Vicki threw a lawsuit at co-star Kelly Dodd AND producers at Bravo and NBCUniversal. She alleged Kelly made comments that could negatively impact her insurance business. Someone must have told Vicki
she just dug her own grave suing Big Brother won’t get her orange back. Now it looks like Jane Roe the Vickster is backing off.
True is love officially dead! The newest breakup
we saw coming has hit Meghan King Edmonds and her very social husband Jim Edmonds full force. Meghan recently showed up on Real Housewives of Orange County, which has systematically seen the demise of many unions. Now the OC Curse has it’s latest victims. Literally 10 minutes ago Meghan and Jim were in counseling to work on their relationship – but a lot can change in a weekend.
Meghan’s summer was utter trash. She learned of an “inappropriate texting” situation Jim had with another woman. He admitted guilt but denied a physical relationship. As the world collectively sighed, “Sure, Jan”, Meghan then learned one of her twin boys was facing long term healthcare issues. The mom of three seemed to face both challenges head on. She sought counseling for her ailing marriage and treatment for her little boy. The couple just passed the 5 year mark, and this is one anniversary Meghan will never forget.
I have tried to be understanding. I have tried to keep my sarcasm in check. And I have tried, so hard, not to be shady. But now Gina Kirschenheiter has left me with little choice. One of the newer stars of Real Housewives of Orange County has been keeping the drama flowing in the show’s 14th season. And what a season it’s been. Gina has dealt with a DUI, a cheating ex-husband, and a blossoming friendship with
the devil Tamra Judge.
Last year we saw Gina and Emily Simpson hanging out a lot, one might have called them BFFs. But their relationship began to show cracks as they attempted to navigate through the trials and tribulations of life. Gina felt personally attacked that Emily wanted to celebrate her anniversary in Sin City. Obviously a direct assault into Gina’s new responsible way of living. But once Gina addressed her drunk driving arrest and came to terms with being single, she decided to start dating. Emily tried to do Gina a solid and set her up with her husband’s cousin, you know because Shane Simpson has such a good rep. Unfortunately, the date wasn’t meant to be, and Gina again considers herself betrayed by Emily.
Remember when people used to have private disputes? Those days are long gone, we have a new way of feuding now! Thanks, Twitter! Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge could teach a master class in the art of being disrespectful. This could be the reason why she gets along with newly-demoted Vicki Gunvalson. These two can barely remain complimentary with each other, much less anyone else.
Now, what if you’re a business owner with a disparaging personality? People investing their time and money in operating a business want success. The same holds true for Tamra and husband, Eddie Judge with their gym. Many folks not satisfied with their weight will flock to the nearest fitness center to work on shedding pounds, and raising self-confidence. When one embarks on a journey to improvement, sensitivity is often required. It can be embarrassing to admit a problem, even if you want to correct it. This might be a lesson Tamra could use going forward, when people seek her “expert” advice for help. Just ask Emily Simpson.
Shannon STORMS Beador is used to things not going her way. When she began her run on Real Housewives of Orange County, her now ex-husband, David Beador, was dipping his chips in someone else’s salsa. Much to the viewers’ weekly dread, The Affair became an entity on its own. We had counseling because of The Affair. We had awkward interactions with David and Shannon’s children, because of The Affair. And we learned nine lemons in a bowl with a side of crystals didn’t do a damn thing to end The Affair.
Ultimately Shannon, The Affair, and David ended their 17-year marriage. Shannon replaced David with the beloved Archie, and David immediately shacked up with another woman. Since then, Shannon has experienced weight gain, self-doubt, and breakdowns as a result of her relationship ending. Thankfully Shannon turned a corner. She started working out. She created her own business. And she started dating! Now as Shannon navigates her new love life, she has to circumvent the old one. But what happens when the two worlds collide? According to Shannon, about what you would expect.
First of all, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Secondly, the Word of the Day is: hypocrisy. Former full-time Real Housewives of Orange County star, Vicki Gunvalson, is going to give us a lesson in our Word of the Day. Oh, this will be fun! Being Vicki’s friend is no easy task. It begs the question, is anyone friends with Vicki not on the Bravo payroll? Just ask Kelly Dodd. Since joining RHOC, Kelly has had disputes with most of her co-stars. From alums Heather Dubrow (I miss her, don’t judge me) and Meghan King Edmonds, to current conflicts with Tamra Judge and Shannon STORMS Beador, Kelly has added drama to the show.
Speaking of drama, Vicki is quite familiar with the word. We won’t mention her
cancer-scamming sordid past with men. Or her endless fights with Tamra. It’s safe to say while Vicki once reigned supreme, the OG of the OC has morphed into the OG of the Oh Please Make It Stop. That said, Vicki is still out for blood and her target is Kelly. Vicki feels Kelly needs to start taking accountability for her actions and try being nice for a change. I will now invite you to remember our Word of the Day: Hypocrisy.
