Tamra Judge

Tamra Judge

Tamra Judge puts the “real” in Real Housewives of Orange County. Even she has to admit that Season 13 hasn’t been the show’s most exciting season- at least at this point. Sure Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson got into that argument about the double dates and Kelly got into a screaming match with both Emily Simpson and her husband Shane Simpson, but pretty much nothing else happened all season.

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.

Tamra Judge Wants Heather Dubrow Back On Real Housewives Of Orange County; Hints That Heather Should Replace Emily Simpson

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.

Tamra Judge wants Heather Dubrow back on Real Housewives of Orange County and she even has a suggestion about who she should replace: Emily Simpson.

Vicki apologizes to Gina

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.

Watch What Happens Live - Tamra Judge

Sometimes a friend’s breakup can affect us much more than we ever expected. Or at least that’s the case for Tamra Judge and her husband Eddie Judge who have been caught in the middle of Shannon Beador and David Beador’s divorce.

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.

Gina cries over getting divorced

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County the seeds of an impending feud were planted as newbies Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson complained that Shannon Beador doesn’t want to be their friend. And just in time for a cast trip to Jamaica. Jamaican Me Crazy, surely!

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.

Shannon Beador

If it seems like there’s a new update every day in the lawsuit Jim Bellino filed against Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge that’s because there is. It just keeps getting more ridiculous as time goes by.

Alexis Bellino’s ex-husband Jim is actually suing Tamra and Shannon for a $1 million after they answered questions about him on a podcast. He even brought in Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi and her man Slade Smiley to testify against Tamra and Shannon. Then he demanded to get access to Tamra and Shannon’s emails and texts so he could prove they intended to “ruin his reputation” before the podcast was recorded. This is just way out of hand. Can someone make it stop? Please.

RHOC Lizzie Rovsek

Unfortunately, Lizzie Rovsek only got one season as a full-time cast member on The Real Housewives of Orange County. She did return as a Friend of the Housewives the following season and she’s made guest appearances here and there. Just last season she showed up for Vicki Gunvalson’s party.

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 Dodd in addition to being friends with new Housewife Emily Simpson.

Shannon Beador on QVC

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…
