On top of that, with Emily and Gina Kirschenheiter joining the show as new Housewives, it’s been a pretty tough transition. They have spent so much time “introducing” them to the viewers and not enough time showing them as integrated members of the group. Short story long, there just hasn’t been enough drama. Thankfully Tamra promises that things are going to heat up.
Once a Real Housewife leaves the show that made her a household name, she is constantly asked if she would consider returning- in pretty much every single interview. Not only that, but the veteran Housewives are always asked which of their former costars should return.
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.
The four them used to hang out together and now that David is out of the picture, Tamra has sided with Shannon, of course. Eddie tried his best to maintain a friendship with David, but apparently his efforts did not work. Tamra revealed that David “dumped” Eddie during last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.
The thing is this is the type of drama that only happens in the alternate reality of reality TV. In the real world if your disparate friends don’t really like each other you’d just hang out with them separately. After all, it’s not like we’re permanently stuck in high school – or Bravoland – together and forced to interact. But in reality TV land three people who have zilch in common must pretend to be part of an established friend group who is now having problems.
The problem here is that Shannon, as she said, is 20 years older than Gina, and they just don’t have a lot in common other than knowing Tamra Judge(and probably secretly hating her) and getting divorced. Except Gina’s divorce is the Unikitty version of a split. It is sparkly blue eyeshadow that leaks tiny droplets of glitter when you cry, and it is platinum fingernails to replace your platinum ring, and it is repurposing all the expensive bikinis you bought for a couples trip by just wearing them on a girl’s trip.
She may have been a one and done Housewife, but she does have a lot of scoop on the cast members and everything that went down during Seasons 9 and 10. Not only that, but she’s still in touch with Vicki and Kelly Doddin addition to being friends with new Housewife Emily Simpson.
Sheesh was last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County a big ole snooze. When the most exciting thing that happens is Shannon Beador bending over on national TV (and I don’t think she was attempting the Legally Blonde Bend & Snap!) before wobbling her own self-described gut, you know it’s gonna be a good one!
Look, I feel for Gina Whatserfacernameo, but I am so tired of her talking about her divorce! I KNOW, I KNOW – getting divorced is traumatic, painful, and all-consuming, but we’re not connected to Gina or Mystery Meat Matt who just walked through our door, and yet every episode features Gina crying over how she knows she’s doing the right thing by ending her marriage, but yada, yada, yada…
