A lot of your favorite reality TV stars enjoyed some quality time with their kids this week. Kim Zolciak celebrated her daughter Ariana Biermann’s birthday. Former New York Housewife Jill Zarin hung out with her daughter Ally Shapiro. Teresa Giudice supported her daughter Gia Giudice while she cheered at her high school’s football game. Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks let her daughter Palmer play with a Shep Rose bobblehead. Who got that for her?
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 Beador to 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.
For Kelly Dodd’s first two seasons on Real Housewives of Orange County, she was essentially Vicki Gunvalson’s sole supporter. Now that Vicki is on good terms with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador again, she’s all “Kelly who?” She completely broke girl code by setting up Kelly’s super recent ex Michael Dodd with another woman and going on double dates with the two of them and her boyfriend Steve Lodge.
On top of that, she kept the whole thing a secret, and had zero remorse for being shady. Now this whole thing has snowballed and the former close friends are not even on speaking terms these days.
Even though Heather Dubrow hasn’t been on Real Housewives of Orange County for the past two seasons, Andy Cohen couldn’t help getting her insight on the show’s current season when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live– even though she admittedly doesn’t watch the show anymore.
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.
When Kelly Dodd joined Real Housewives of Orange County, she quickly became Vicki Gunvalson’s sole friend in the cast. This season, that could not be further from the truth. After Vicki and her man Steve Lodge went on secretive double dates with Kelly’s ex Michael Dodd after setting him up with a friend, Kelly was (understandably) upset with Vicki for breaking girl code.
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 Mathews from 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.
It seemed like it was out of left field when Kelly Dodd accused Vicki Gunvalson’s boyfriend Steve Lodge of being with her for money. Steve has always seemed like a standup guy, especially in comparison to other men Vicki has dated. Nevertheless, Kelly still insists that Steve is not with Vicki for the right reasons.
Kelly accused Vicki of convincing Steve to spread lies about her in the press. On top of that, Steve and Vicki were going on secretive double dates with Kelly’s ex-husband Michael Dodd and a woman that Vicki introduced him to. Needless to say, Steve is on Kelly’s shit list and so is Vicki.
