Vicki Gunvalson Real Housewives Of Orange County

Ooooh… already a juicy cliffhanger on Real Housewives Of Orange County and courtesy of Vicki Gunvalson no less, who is desperate to prove that she belongs holding an orange.

Kelly Dodd really had no other option but to storm out of Tamra Judge‘s housewarming party after unleashing her superpower supersonic F-bombs on Vicki.

When Kelly’s voice goes to that decibel of extreme whininess I imagine that dogs everywhere go into a trance and start walking, zombie-like, towards the TV screen. Frisker – go to a new master!

RHOC Tamra Judge Allegedly Ambushed Her Son’s Ex In Heated Custody Battle

When a mama bear feels her cub is in trouble it doesn’t matter how old that cub is, she will launch into attack mode.  And if that mama bear is Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge  you can pretty much guarantee she is not going to sit on the sidelines.

Tamra is not one to shy away from a good fight. It should come as no surprise she might have put herself right in the middle of her son, Ryan Vieth’s custody battle with ex Sarah Rodriguez.

Kelly Dodd Real Housewives Of Orange County

What even was last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County? Certainly not Vicki Gunvalson‘s welcome back redemption tour because the very second she walks into a scene things explode. It’s because Vicki never learns!! In between chasing Kelly Dodd around a party and begging Kelly for an opportunity to talk, Vicki is simultaneously doubling-down on the accusation that Kelly does cocaine. Now she knows people who have done it with Kelly. Produce these people!

See this is the thing about Vicki: she always makes some off-the-wall accusation – who knows, maybe it is true [shrug-moji] – then immediately regrets it. Not because Vicki feels bad, but because of social repercussions. Then instead of being contrite; instead of calling Kelly on the phone to sincerely apologize, then making it publicly known that the accusation wasn’t true, Vicki just pretends it will blow over. Meanwhile Vicki will continue to insist she’s not a liar and make little comments reinforcing her original statement. As if repeating it will make it true. Then even worse, Vicki only wants to apologize to save her own faces. What face is Vicki on at this point?

Shannon Beador Real Housewives Of Orange County Season 14 Premiere

Last night was the premiere of Real Housewives Of Orange County Season 14, aka a year without Vicki Gunvalson; a year of living OG-less. We know Vicki will show up eventually, but it’s almost like a mirage that we got through an entire episode with nary a “Whoop It Up!” or a “Woo Hoo!” I sort of have the vapors and need to lie down … in a blissful sleep of fulfilled dreams.

I’ve been saying for years that Real Housewives Of Orange County needs to do a casting shake-up, and break the stranglehold of Vicki and Tamra Judge, whose dysfunctional frienemyship has dominated in a really detrimental way. Personally, I think Tamra would’ve been the one to fire since she is always playing producer and a large part of her antics are purely ‘for the show.’ Vicki is too clueless and lacking in self-awareness to self-produce, which makes for more authentic everything. I mean, this is a woman who gave us Brooks Ayers faking cancer on national television whereas Tamra has given us… facelifts and Ryan Vieth? Maybe next season they should rotate in Vicki full-time, but drop Tamra? Gotta test all the variables of your experiment, right?!

For now, see you on the flip side, Vicks!

RHOC-Reunion-Vicki-Gunvalson

The end of an era has arrived. After 13 seasons, Vicki Gunvalson is no longer a main cast member of Real Housewives of Orange County. HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO US? The OG of the OC is demoted to a “friend” role for the upcoming season 14. Despite this, it looks like a lot of the season still revolves around Vicki. We can’t wait to see Vicki vs Kelly Dodd this season!

Vicki’s given viewers SO many memories over the years. It’s genuinely upsetting to see her lose her orange. She carried the show with the Brooks Ayers scandal. Her feuds with Tamra Judge are legendary. Plus, we never want to see the Tres Amigas split up again. Without a doubt, nobody will ever replace Vicki in our hearts. We want her back full-time! However, Andy Cohen is the one who calls all the shots and can make that happen. 

Vicki & Tamra make up

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. That pretty much sums up the friendship between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. The Real Housewives of Orange County stars have always enjoyed a rocky relationship. From Vicki’s third face to Tamra’s second body, the two have gone through both physical and emotional changes over the years. Sometimes getting along, other times screaming in each other’s faces, the OC duo has brought the drama.

Vicki always had quite a hefty fan base, until Brooks Ayers came into the picture. After his cancer-scamming subterfuge, Vicki dealt with the loss of co-star support and viewer disgust. Season 13 of RHOC found Vicki with not much of a story-line, despite her new boyfriend efforts to remain relevant. And even though Vicki somehow threatened coerced Steve Lodge into a proposal, it just wasn’t enough to secure an orange for the OG. When the news of Vicki’s demise went public, if you listened closely, you could hear fans shouting their approval from the rooftops. Or maybe that was just Kelly Dodd. Now that the mighty has fallen, on-again, off-again friend Tamra has some thoughts on Vicki’s demotion to Siberia friend status.

Heather Dubrow Claims She Could Return To RHOC If Kelly Dodd Leaves

We have seen them come, go, and come back again. Some Housewives have left the fold to pursue bigger and better things. Or just fade into obscurity. Heather Dubrow departed Real Housewives of Orange County after five seasons and a volatile squabble with Kelly Dodd. It’s a shame, because while many viewers felt Heather was cold and unapproachable, she was at least legitimately rich. She had an effortlessly chic, New York flair about her, and didn’t fit in with the rest of the Orange County crew.

Fans of Heather have missed her champagne-filled quips and seeing her enormous home. Heather haters have found themselves in a quandary because who wants to see Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge fight for the 679th time? In the past, Heather has teased a comeback. She has remained friends with mostly everyone, except Kelly. Heather cited her reasons for leaving RHOC were due to spending more time with family and because she wasn’t being offered more serious roles in Hollywood. Now that we haven’t seen Fancy Pants show up on a sitcom or nighttime soap, does that mean she is considering a return to a steady paycheck reality television?

Shannon and Tamra face off on RHOC reunion

Last night was part three of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Which means this bizarre season is finally over. Part 3 was all about Shannon Beador, as pretty much every part of everything is. As Shannon said, “I’m sorry for being me me me me me!”

Is Shannon crazy? Is Shannon an emotional wreck? Are the voices in Shannon’s head actually Tamra Judge reading a script from David Beador‘s iPhone on how to manipulate and condescend Shannon into a meltdown? #yes

But first a Kelly Dodd montage! Kelly is dating, dating, dating and ignoring Jolie who Michael Dodd is dating. But Vicki Gunvalson isn’t! Obviously, she is very invested in what is going on in Michael’s life.
