The premiere of Real Housewives of Orange County is right here and viewers can expect to see a lot of changes in Season 14. Some of us, only me are still reeling from the fact that Vicki Gunvalson – OG of the OC – is featured as a friend of the housewives. Along with that, there’s the addition of Braunwyn Windham-Burke – a name so long and luxurious she sounds like a character in a Jackie Collins novel. At least we’ll get to watch Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd on the prowl. We will, however, have to put up with Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson again.
This IS MY OPINION! (trademark Tamra Judge) but I really could have done without Emily and Gina. I feel like they were asked back because Evolution (the production company) wants to prove they made a solid casting decision. Either way, wimp Shane Simpson will, unfortunately, be gracing our screens with his presence again. His wife Emily has been on the interview round to promote RHOC and she’s not holding back.
It’s tough to be the new girl on a Real Housewives show. All of the
older more seasoned cast members are scared of losing the spotlight, and ultimately, their full-time status on the show. Braunwyn Windham-Burke will make her Real Housewives of Orange County debut on tonight’s Season 14 premiere.
Notably, the OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, has been demoted to part-time status. So, those are some
obnoxious big shoes for Braunwyn to fill. Does she have what it takes to last on RHOC? Or will she be a “one and done” like Peggy Sulahian or Peggy Tanous? Well, at least her name isn’t Peggy, so she doesn’t have to deal with that one-season curse. Then again, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson each got a second season after contributing zero during their rookie years. RHOC is struggling to say the least. Does Braunwyn have what it takes to resuscitate the original Real Housewives show!? Let’s hope so. There’s a lot riding on this, Braunwyn.
It’s always magic when Real Housewives collide! Recently Melissa Gorga, Porsha Williams, and Sonja Morgan collaborated on a music video. The subject, of course, is something that the ladies know a little something about– getting work done. Melissa, Sonja, and Porsha all sing different sections of the song. And somewhere, cabaret star Luann de Lesseps is warbling a sad song next to a piano.
The video also features appearances by Dorinda Medley and Tamra Judge. The hilarious video is a commercial for a new Fiber One low-calorie snack bar. But I am here for it! I love when Dorinda says “Clip!” at the end.
It is hard to believe, but it is almost time for the Real Housewives of Orange County to return! Of course, the big casting news this year was that OC OG Vicki Gunvalson had been demoted to Friend of status. Everyone from last season is returning and one new cast member has been added.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke is the newest lady to receive an orange, which probably had to be pried out of Vicki’s clutching hand! So far, we know Braunwyn is married, a mother of seven and a mommy blogger. She recently shared more about herself and her role in the upcoming season. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the new addition and what she will add to RHOC.
Can you believe we are less than a week away from the premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County? If the show’s trailer is any indication, we are in for a good season. The last few years of RHOC have been a bit lackluster, so I am hopeful that the new season will be better.
Of course, all the ladies are returning, which has generally not been the case with RHOC. Vicki Gunvalson’s demotion heard round the world will be interesting to watch. How will she handle it? What about the new Housewife, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who in theory, stole Vicki’s orange? The fabulously named Braunwyn has at least one fan amongst the OC Housewives, namely Tamra Judge.
There’s just something so special about Real Housewives from different shows coming together no matter what the reason is. Whether it’s a joint appearance on Watch What Happens Live, an Instagram photo together, or some other event, it’s just always fun to see Real Housewives interacting.
Recently, Melissa Gorga, Sonja Morgan, and Porsha Williams collaborated on a song about something they know well: gettting work done. They even filmed a music video for the track, which included funny appearances from Dorinda Medley and Tamra Judge.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies couldn’t handle it when Andy Cohen asked about plastic surgery during the reunion? In contrast, there are other Real Housewives who don’t mind sharing every procedure they get done on the show, on social media, and in interviews. Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge falls into that latter category.
RHOC viewers have seen her change the size of her breast implants countless times throughout the years. She was open about her mini facelift, whatever that means. And now, she just got a pretty unusual procedure: permanently tattooed lip color. She couldn’t just use a Kylie Cosmetics lip stain?
The end of an era has arrived. After 13 seasons, Vicki Gunvalson is no longer a main cast member of Real Housewives of Orange County. HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO US? The OG of the OC is demoted to a “friend” role for the upcoming season 14. Despite this, it looks like a lot of the season still revolves around Vicki. We can’t wait to see Vicki vs Kelly Dodd this season!
Vicki’s given viewers SO many memories over the years. It’s genuinely upsetting to see her lose her orange. She carried the show with the Brooks Ayers scandal. Her feuds with Tamra Judge are legendary. Plus, we never want to see the Tres Amigas split up again. Without a doubt, nobody will ever replace Vicki in our hearts. We want her back full-time! However, Andy Cohen is the one who calls all the shots and can make that happen.
