Last night was the season finale of Real Housewives Of Orange County and with all the chaos, the only thing I could think about was that Gina Kirschenheiter is actually MOVING her word art collection. Like it’s priceless art. Frankly I’m surprised she wasn’t selling it to Sothebys. But seriously you guys, just like her marriage and her ex-man, that stuff is garbage!
Gina decided to reconcile with Matt, and she is glowing like a teenager with a crush as she tells Emily Simpson that he’s truly changed. Gina believes this is a second chance at their marriage. They’ve sold their Coto home and are moving some place new and fresh, and Gina doesn’t even worry about what Matt’s doing in LA.
Well, just like Gina cut the dead ends off her hair, she needs to cut off Matt! Emily knows this, but she tries to be supportive. We can see in others what we can’t see in ourselves, right!
If you crammed any more drama, hijinks, meltdowns, and hysterias (and medical issues!) into this episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County I think it would explode a la Kelly Dodd after 2 cocktails and exposure to a snarky meme. Things would just come flying out, every which way, and the only thing that would be left standing amid the rubble would be Tamra Judge and the two giant inflatable jugs she has strapped to her chest as a bullet-proof vest/getaway life raft.
I literally can’t even begin to dissect all the switching animosities and loyalties, but all I have to say is Tamra is masterful at manipulating these women in a tizzy of stupidity. And Kyle Richards thinks Lisa Vanderpump plays chess…
The Real Housewives of Orange County episode featuring Tamra Judge’s adult son in a therapy session has spawned a lot of controversy. Ryan Vieth doesn’t have the best reputation in reality television, but to be fair, neither does his mother. Fans of the show have watched Ryan go from the tortured stepkid of Simon Barney who didn’t want a desk job to a somewhat troubled father of one, who still doesn’t want a desk job.
There has never been a great deal of sympathy for Ryan, but the public tends to root for someone who fights to change their situation instead of complaining how they got there. Ryan has also displayed some less than acceptable behavior towards the mother of his child. In addition to his relationship woes, Ryan is very vocal about his political stance, which is a polarizing subject on most occasions. Now Tamra’s
resident sycophant co-star Gina Kirschenheiter shares her thoughts on Ryan and wants viewers to know he is a pretty good guy.
You guys I’m sorry – I am having Thanksgiving fever and 15 houseguests, and I just cannot get it together with the Real Housewives Of Orange County nonsense today.
Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd are like your mother and your mother-in-law at the same holiday dinner. They’re not gonna speak or look at each other. But, they are going to viciously jab from all corners until it all comes bubbling to the surface over the way to make gravy or something.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke invited all the women to Miami so they can understand her better. Apparently, we’re now defining our personalities by cities, so Braunwyn is a Miami person. In Miami, she liked having sex with her husband, clubbed constantly, and wore skanky clothes to the grocery store. Whereas in Orange County, Braunwyn has to hide her wild side? I don’t get it… How was Braunwyn doing all this partying in between 52 pregnancies, nursing 19 babies, and also well, ostensibly, parenting? We don’t ever get a clear answer about why they left Miami, just like we don’t get a clear answer about why this is the sad-sack trip RHOC got this season. I blame Tamra because I blame her for everything.
Well, if there’s one thing a Housewives show doesn’t need more celebration of it’s boobs, although I think Real Housewives Of Orange County gave us the first itineration of celebrating boobs that weren’t just used for sex appeal… that is until Braunwyn Windham-Burke whipped hers out at her No More Nursing fiesta.
The theme of this party made absolutely no sense. It was a boobs bacchanalia with strippers, a nipple cake, and dildos on the wall, but Brauwnyn called it a “weaning party” meant to celebrate the end of nursing after 18 years.
Braunwyn’s entire life is reliving the youth she never got to experience, which is ironic only in that Dr. Deb‘s desperation to capture a thwarted youth is the sole reason why Braunwyn resents and hates her mother. So maybe Braunwyn will go on to have an illustrious career as a plastic surgeon specializing in mommy makeover boob jobs? I just can’t with this exhausting woman and her constant need to show off as the hot, fun mom. Enough already!
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.
Love her or hate her, Tamra Judge always finds a way to amplify the drama on Real Housewives of Orange County. Sometimes she’s directly involved, but mostly she finds a way to drum up issues between others by talking out both sides of her mouth. Tamra still has real drama of her own that we don’t really see play out on camera anymore (thankfully).
I just re-watched Season 5 of RHOC (highly recommend). For a refresher, that was the season where Tamra screamed, “I want a divorce!!!” at Simon Barney in the back of a limo. From that point on, the drama within Tamra’s family escalated to a point that no parent can ever prepare for. It has been well documented on the series that Tamra has been “erased” from her eldest daughter, Sidney’s life. Sidney Barney moved in with Simon shortly after the divorce, and has since been living away at college. Back in 2017, Tamra reunited with Sidney and Simon for Sidney’s high-school graduation. The reunion was short-lived because Tamra posted about it on her social media. Sidney has also shared that her issues with Tamra are personal, and that she is “disappointed” in Tamra’s behavior on RHOC.
