Dealing with Vicki Gunvalson is an exercise in futility. Vicki also has issues with jealousy. Thankfully viewers will be free from Vicki’s relentless woo-hoo screaming and desperate attempts to make Steve Lodge appear interested in their relationship. Bravo gave us the gift that will keep on giving, no more Vicki or Tamra Judge on Real Housewives of Orange County.
Accepting her fate with a positive attitude isn’t Vicki’s thing. Thankfully, her partner in crime, Tamra, was shown the door as well. But one piece of the puzzle was missing. Shannon Beador, third member of the OCs answer to Hells Angels, Tres Amigas, kept her orange. While doing press for the show, Shannon was asked about her former friend. Vicki’s Google Alerts must be on because now she responds to Shannon’s comments, and seemingly punishes her for not being unemployed.
It seems like a lot of people are saying good morning to everyone but Kelly Dodd. The Real Housewives of Orange County might have lost both Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge, but Kelly is sticking around to be the fly in everyone’s ointment. Flies are trending today, you know! I’m not sure if Kelly is completely tone deaf or just really great at trolling, but she definitely knows how to keep her name in the media.
Not everyone finds Kelly’s shenanigans humorous. Right now our political climate is touchy, people are exhausted and sensitive. Things we might have once found funny are now seen as careless or tone deaf. Much of what Kelly says could be labeled as ignorant, but if you’re looking at Kelly to be a reliable source of anything, you’re on the wrong road. Recently, Kelly posted a photo of herself wearing a Drunk Wives Matter hat, which mocks the Black Lives Matter movement. She has been receiving a lot of flak, with viewers calling for an RHOC boycott. Now Real Housewives of Atlanta star and activist, Porsha Williams can add herself to the list of people saying good morning to everyone but Kelly.
You never know what’s going to happen when you give Brandi Glanville a mic. Andy Cohen now knows that better than anyone. She put him in the hot seat on the latest episode of her podcast, and it did not disappoint. Naturally, they discussed RHOBH and Denise Richards‘ exit after two seasons. Brandi is still miffed that she has no real opening to get back on the show with Denise gone.
However, it was the topic of Real Housewives of Orange County that caught Andy off guard. He wasn’t at all expecting the bomb Brandi was about to drop on him. As most people know by now, Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson will NOT be back for the new season. If you ask Brandi, they might think it has something to do with their age. Down the rabbit hole we go.
While Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge have been #firedbybravo, Kelly Dodd is proving we can still count on her to be anything but the voice of reason on Real Housewives of Orange County. But if you’re watching RHOC to receive guidance and enlightenment, you might want to rethink your life choices.
Kelly provides the drama and is never at a loss for speaking her mind. She is unfiltered, which makes for great television, but I doubt anyone from MENSA will extend an invite to their club of intellectuals. In the social climate we are currently facing, Kelly has offered some interesting insight to her platform. While coronavirus has impacted nearly every aspect of life, society has adapted and people have made changes to their daily routine in an unselfish effort to control the spread. Thankfully, medical doctor and practicing scientist, Dr. Kelly Dodd, wants you to know that we are no longer in the midst of a worldwide pandemic.
Ok, what is going on with the Real Housewives of Orange County? It seems like they just cannot keep out of the media with negative press. I know they say all press is good press but in this case, I would have to disagree.
The show has already experienced a major shakeup before the season even started filming with the
firing exit of OG’s Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. And Vicki has landed herself in hot water with her comments on coronavirus. So has Tamra, thanks to pictures she posted of her out with friends, no masks in sight. Which brings us to the current cast member, Kelly Dodd. Where do I even start? Kelly has been vocal about her constant travel, along with her insensitive comments about the virus. At this point, Kelly should do us all a favor and delete her social media. Honestly, the only person I’m here for with this cast is newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke. I know people have conflicting feelings on her first season but hey, at least she’s not out there sharing inconsiderate memes about COVID.
Can I get an inflatable tube man dance and a wooooowwieeee!?! BAM! There’s some glitter in your face for good measure. Apparently, Lydia McLaughlin and her mother Judy Stirling from Real Housewives of Orange County are baaaAAAaack. Lydia was a total one season wonder…but TWICE. In season 8 Lydia boasted about her connection with her lord, Jesus. Meanwhile, her mom grappled with quitting “the pot” and keeping her feet off Vicki Gunvalson’s couch. In season 12 Lydia gave this show temporary new life when she rolled in looking like Charlie Chaplin. You know the scene. Never forget. I don’t even remember her mom in season 12. Must have been riveting.
Tamra Judge has even admitted she doesn’t think these recent seasons of RHOC have been their best. Can’t say I disagree. I miss the drama from Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino, and even Heather Dubrow. Call me crazy, but the TV was good. Lydia, on the other hand, already misses Vicki on her screen. Well with taste like that…
As far as we know, Tamra Judge isn’t come back to Real Housewives of Orange County. That hasn’t stopped her from keeping herself in the limelight as of late. She’s come out swinging against former cast mate, Shannon Beador after she made up with Kelly Dodd. Then Tamra confirmed she is no longer friends with Shannon after Shannon ignored her phone calls. Lol on that one. I don’t blame Shannon at all after seeing last season. Tamra also moved AGAIN, this time ditching the $2M Coto de Caza property she was showing off on the show. Remember her bragging about that country club and golf course? She can kiss that goodbye now that she’s headed back to a property that was a significant downgrade in price.
Aside from keeping the gossip sites alive and well, Tamra is also busy with her side hustles. We know very little about her budding (pun intended) CBD business venture, Vena. While there is still have a website, we haven’t heard anything else about Vena since she brought it up on the show. Shocker, right? Tamra also recently said on an Instagram “Ask Me Anything” that she was interested in opening a home store. We’ve all seen her collection of Mackenzie-Childs kitchenware and can find that without Tamra’s help, thanks. But Tamra’s bread and butter for the longest has been CUT Fitness, a gym she opened with husband, Eddie Judge back in 2013. We saw plenty of the gym when Tamra opened it and many a scene on RHOC was filmed there. Now there are some rumors that this is the end of CUT Fitness.
Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge might have said “adios” to Real Housewives of Orange County, but that doesn’t mean we have heard the last of them. I’m sure that’s exactly how they want it too. These two are so joined at the hip, I can’t imagine them doing anything separate at this point.
As viewers of RHOC, we
suffered through watched many seasons of the so-called “Tres Amigas”, which comprised of Vicki, Tamra, and Shannon Beador. But now that Vicki and Tamra have left the show, all that remains is Shannon and her relationships with her current cast mates. That doesn’t seem to be sitting too well with two thirds of the trio.
