When you think about it, Bravo really changed the face of reality television. Sure, Bravo didn’t invent the genre, but over the years, the network has taken risks to start a wide variety of reality themed shows–from real estate to yachting and more. Many of these shows have been very successful and have been game changers in the reality television world.
Of course, the franchise Bravo is probably best known for is the Real Housewives. Who knew in 2006 that the franchise would still be going strong in 2019. From the original Real Housewives of Orange County, the show has landed in cities from New York to Dallas to Beverly Hills. One of the most successful spin-offs has been the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Recently, Peter Thomas, who used to be a regular on the show when married to Cynthia Bailey, shared his thoughts about how the men on the Housewives shows are portrayed.
The divorce between former Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan Edmonds and Jim Edmonds is shaping up to be a big old mess. After news of Jim’s sexting scandal broke in June, the couple seemed to be working things out. Of course, all that changed in late October when the couple split amid Meghan’s allegations that Jim had an inappropriate relationship with one of their nannies, Carly Wilson. At that point, many well-known couples would have taken a social media and press break. Not our Meghan and Jim!
Since their split, the two have been engaged in an ongoing war of words and damage control. Jim denied the nanny accusations and said Meghan was “negligent” and “careless” to accuse him of nanny tomfoolery. Jim then backtracked a bit and said that he was saddened that Meghan was hurt. Meghan, of course, couldn’t leave well enough alone and accused Jim of “drinking and partying with much younger women.” More drama than a telenovela! Of course, that couldn’t be the end of it–not with these two.
Ahhhh… Bravo is starting the holiday season off early with the gift of Tamra Judge‘s web of deceit, dishonestly, and backstabbing being unraveled! I probably shouldn’t get too excited though because knowing how Real Housewives Of Orange County rolls, Tamra will somehow find a way to get out of this. Snakes can fit through the smallest crevices, after all!
It all starts with Tamra and Shannon Beador heading to dinner with Kelly Dodd. Their plan is to confront Kelly for her comment that the only time she’ll celebrate Vicki Gunvalson is at Vicki’s funeral. Shannon is devastated that Kelly is so callous and diabolical with her words (as if she didn’t have a phony funeral for her marriage a couple seasons back!), but suddenly Tamra – who started all this drama – plays devil’s advocate (cause she’s the devil!) that Kelly has a right to be angry given all the horrible things Vicki has said about her like that train rumor (which Tamra shared with the group many times over)! And most recently when Vicki reveled how Kelly tried to throw her mama from the train. Or was it stairs? Deetails-Schmeetails!
Uh-oh… Is Tamra Judge finally about to get her comeuppance on Real Housewives Of Orange County?! Let’s hope!
All it’s taken to get the other women questioning is a thirsty famewhore mom of 7 who really wants to people to see her as something other than a compulsive baby breeder. But Braunwyn Windham-Burke also wants to make-out with Tamra and date her, so… I’m confused!
Well, you gotta know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em. Unfortunately, Vicki Gunvalson needs practice in the game of life. The demoted Real Housewives of Orange County star is
desperate still not clear on when to leave things alone. Even Vicki’s part time status might be too much for fans at this juncture. Viewers have been patiently waiting for Vicki to provide some sort of substance to the show, which is lacking amid stupid rumors and ungodly inappropriate displays of affection.
Vicki is trying, you guys. Trying to remain relevant. But her efforts may be futile. What Vicki does succeed in is being a complete and total hypocrite. Last week, Vicki threw a lawsuit at co-star Kelly Dodd AND producers at Bravo and NBCUniversal. She alleged Kelly made comments that could negatively impact her insurance business. Someone must have told Vicki
she just dug her own grave suing Big Brother won’t get her orange back. Now it looks like Jane Roe the Vickster is backing off.
Real Housewives of Orange County resident potty mouth Kelly Dodd is throwing some serious shade at fellow housewife Tamra Judge.
And despite not being a full-time housewife this season, OG Vicki Gunvalson aka the friend, is in the middle of it all. Which also happens to be her favorite place to be.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke is enjoying her freshman season on Real Housewives of Orange County. She showed up with 7 kids, a mom who lives an “alternative lifestyle”, and a husband with an enchanting necklace collection. Braunwyn has experienced ups and downs in her marriage to Sean Burke. Now that she has signed her family up for reality television, her life is under a microscope. In the past, Braunwyn has admitted being a “big fan” of RHOC, so she knew what she was in for when the cameras started rolling.
Marriage is a big topic in Braunwyn’s life. Aside from Emily Simpson, Braunwyn and Sean have the only holy union currently intact. It wasn’t always that way though. The fact that Braunwyn and her husband have an atypical marriage is no secret. Braunwyn clearly has eyes for the ladies, especially after indulging in a
cry for attention public make-out session with Tamra Judge. Gina Kirschenheiter even suggested there has been infidelity in Braunwyn’s happy home. Now we learn amid the threesomes, the love shack, and whatever Dr. Deb is doing with her hair, Gina was right. Braunwyn gives details on the cheating that rocked her arrangement wedding vows, and who did the stepping out.
In a land long ago and far away, known as the Kingdom of Orange County, Queen Victoria, aka Vicki Gunvalson and Lady Kelly Dodd used to be good friends. It was easy to see why the two Real Housewives of Orange County stars might be compatible. Both can be outspoken, loud, overly dramatic and a wee-bit self-centered. The special bond the Orange County royalty shared changed for them over the last few seasons, however. Unfortunately, the two regal stars have not been able to keep their royal traps shut about each other, leading to fireworks over the once peaceful kingdom.
Vicki has alluded to Kelly using cocaine, being banned from her daughter’s school and pushing her mother down the stairs. She denied spreading sex train rumors about her former friend, however. Kelly has claimed Vicki bought her own engagement ring, made fun of her facelift, compared her to spoiled milk and took jabs at her insurance business. Now, all of this fussing and feuding has come to an ugly head and Vicki has taken legal action against Kelly.
