The last season of the Real Housewives of Orange County was not one of the best. Although I would say it was an improvement from the previous year, the season was still a bit of a snoozer. Not much happened, other than Gina Kirschenheiter age shaming the other women and Shannon Beador testing QVC frozen meals in her kitchen. Even Tamra Judge was on mostly good behavior. Except for injuring herself in a drunken, nude hot tub escapade!
And one of the consistent creators of OC drama spent last season minding her manners. The Vicki Gunvalson we have come to know and love (or loathe!) was drama avoidant and almost demure the entire season. OK, she might have twerked in a see-through black lace outfit in public and got intoxicated a few times, but for the Queen of Coto de Caza, she was almost nun-like. And reportedly, Bravo is not happy about it.
After a painfully boring Season 13 of Real Housewives Of Orange County, the entire cast has been asked back for Season 14. That makes zero sense to me. How is the show going to get any better with all of last year’s players returning for the next season? Thankfully, there are rumors that a new cast member is joining the group.
Not only that, but RHOC alum Meghan Edmonds is making an appearance. All of the ladies gathered to celebrate Shannon Beador’s birthday. And, of course, they all posted photos. Hopefully, some drama went down in between the happy pictures that they shared.
Tamra Judge is known to Real Housewives of the Orange County fans as someone who constantly stirs the pot and throws a lot of shade. Whether it’s in her talking heads during the regular season, her reunion antics, or various off-season promotional opportunities…Tamra doesn’t hold back when it comes to feuds with current or former cast members. Which brings us to our current quarrel between Tamra and Jim Bellino. If only Tamra stuck to her most famous insult about the Bellino’s. She probably wouldn’t be in this predicament (Jesus Jugs, anyone?).
Unfortunately for Tamra, Jim did not take her insults lying down. He responded via a blog post on his website. Jim addressed the controversy saying, “It’s unfortunate that I have to speak out on matters that I have attempted to keep private, and that others continue to attempt to portray me and my family in a false light.”
Unfortunately, Real Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter has had an eventful 2019 so far, but not in a good way. First of all, Gina was arrested for a driving under the influence and taken to a Santa Ana jail. Also, Gina was stopped again when she was caught using her cell phone while driving. Consequently, that driving infraction cost the Long Island native a whopping $160.
Come on Gina! That is so dangerous! Perhaps you should start car-pooling with Tamra Judge or Emily Simpson if you don’t want to call Uber.
When Gina Kirschenheiter joined the Real Housewives of Orange County last season, she seemed like a typical new OC Housewife. Marital problems. Check. Larger than life personality. Check. An instant feud with Shannon Beador. Check. Gina even offered up a few new things to the show. A Long Island accent. A ridiculously long last name. And claiming to have the friendliest divorce in Housewife history.
But a secret was lurking just below the surface. Gina seems to have a blatant disregard for the law. Like most of us, she began the month of February as a law-abiding citizen. At least for a few hours. But by the end of the month, Gina had experienced multiple run-ins with the law, and was even branded a fugitive!
Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi and her fiancé Slade Smiley announced in December that they were expecting their first child together. The desire to have a family is something the couple has been open about for years. Gretchen has been honest about her fertility struggles with her fans, including undergoing multiple rounds of failed IVF treatments. And the physical and mental toll that has taken on her.
Gretchen has even revealed how Slade giving her fertility injections brought the two closer together as a couple. And now they have revealed the gender of their baby.
Blast from the past, Meghan Edmonds, was recently spotted filming Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County. Meghan left RHOC in 2018 to focus on her brand new twins and daughter Aspen. Along with husband and dad-jeans connoisseur, Jim Edmonds, the couple packed up their
candles kids and relocated to Meghan’s hometown of St.Louis.
Love her or hate her, she will always be the
obsessed detective who uncovered one of the OC’s most controversial scandals. Is Meghan now regretting her decision to leave the spotlight? Does she plan on returning to discover more subterfuge and trickery?
As far as Real Housewives divorces go, the split between Shannon Beador and David Beador is one of the longest. And ugliest. Certainly trumping her friend Vicki Gunvalson’s split from Donn Gunvalson. And rivaling the years-long divorce drama of her Real Housewives of Orange County bestie Tamra Judge and ex Simon Barney.
Since filing for divorce in December of 2017, the former couple has been battling it out in court. Over everything from spousal support to custody matters related to their three daughters. There currently seems to be no end in sight to the conclusion of the former couple’s divorce negotiations. And now David claims that Shannon’s income is much higher than his. He is asking to have his support payments lowered.
