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 last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was the most interesting one we’ve watched all season. At first glance, we have Shannon Beadorto thank for getting into it with every single cast member. However, she did have some support. Well, she didn’t actually have much support, but Shannon just isn’t the only one responsible for the madness that went down
After Shannon declared “I’m never not fun. Let’s just be clear, Tamra Judge pointed to Gina Kirschenheiter and said “You might want to ask this one.” Shannon went on another rant about her life and then the drama escalated. Gina called out Shannon for not checking on Tamra when her husband was in the hospital. Shannon insisted that she was a good friend and stated that Tamra would back up those claims. Tamra did not and then Shannon went off- on every person in the cast.
Pretty much everything on Real Housewives of Orange County comes back to Vicki Gunvalson, so of course she was a main topic of conversation. Heather dished on her famous mansion Chateau Dubrow, the Housewives she keeps in touch with, and Alexis Bellino’s recent divorce.
Sure, they “made up,” but the tension has been thick between the two of them ever since. Watching the show back and commenting on their past arguments in interviews and on social media definitely hasn’t helped the situation. Nowadays it’s clear that these two are not on speaking terms and they are bound to be arguing with each other on opposite couches when they tape the reunion.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars were focused on the family time this week. Being mid-divorce did not stop Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Roger Mathewsfrom spending a Disney-themed day with their daughter.
Moral compasses aside, the ladies are making their best efforts to get along on tonight’s Real Housewives of Orange County. In the wake of Gina Kirschenheiter’s divorce announcement, Vicki Gunvalson is still spewing her “stay married” advice. However, this time it’s poor Steve Lodge who is the captive audience. She really tries to work marriage into about every conversation with this man, doesn’t she? The best part of this story is that her holier than thou conversation happens at a biker bar after an afternoon of riding a motorcycle with her man. Talk about a fish out of water!
Meanwhile in the OC, Emily Simpson admits that she loves living so close to her in-laws. Not only does her pocket MIL provide wonderful insight, but she’s a damn good babysitter, too! Speaking of babies, Emily has a tragic past with pregnancies which is what ultimately led her sister to be a surrogate for her and Shane. With nine viable embryos still on ice with her doctor, she is eager to give her own daughter a sister close in age. The only snag in her plan? Shane isn’t on board for another child…yet.
