Dramy, dramy, dram-dramzs on last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County. So Emily Simpson was really glad that after all the rumors, speculation, and gossip Shane could come to Tamra Judge‘s party, be his best Mormon self, and everyone would get to know ‘the real Shane.’ Except The Real Shane(TM) turned out to be kinda worse than the Shane of everyone’s imagination. This is gonna go either one of two ways here, kids: Emily will find herself divorced, or her happy marriage will cost her the show next season!
This episode might as well have been titled The Real HouseHUSBANDS, because it was about bad husbands or lack thereof from start to finish. After our two week hiatus, we’re still on the golf course celebrating Vicki Gunvalson‘s 400th birthday. This day has more fits and starts than Vicki’s ever-evolving face. Suddenly Shanon Beador was storming away from the lunch table because Tamra “doesn’t care” about Shannon’s opinion.
After last Monday’s holiday hiatus, the Real Housewives of Orange County are back tonight with a vengeance. The PGA of drama ends with a hole in one of obscenities thanks to a fretful Shannon Beador, and the craziness bleeds over into a party hosted by Tamra Judgeto celebrate husband Eddie’s birthday. Vicki Gunvalson sees first hand the daily grind facing Gina Kirschenheiter due to her absentee husband, and, speaking of husbands, Tamra annoys the boredom out of normally even keeled Steve when pushing for a Vicki proposal.
Emily Simpson’s husband Shane is once again at the center of the controversy over that casino night situation with Gina Kirschenheiter that happened what seems like eons ago. However, it’s not Gina who takes issue with the poker pooper. Instead, she is crying on Emily’s shoulder about her own marriage woes while Kelly Dodd’s cougar claws come out to take aim at Shane. I swear, we can’t take these ladies anywhere!
Most of the former Housewives would do just about anything to be back on the show again. Heather Dubrow is not one of those Real Housewivesalums. You won’t catch her making a cameo appearance to stir the pot or throwing shade at current cast members on social media. She is one of the very few ex-Housewives who is happily retired from the game.
Even so, that doesn’t mean that she’s retired in general. Heather is more than busy with all of her endeavors. Her podcast Heather Dubrow’s World just reached a major milestone of 30 million downloads. She already wrote one book with her husband, Botchedstar Dr. Terry Dubrow, and they are working on their second. Not only that, but she also has four kids and an immaculately decorated mansion to take care of. Heather doesn’t necessarily “miss” the Housewife life, but she emphasized that she is very aware of all the opportunities being on Real Housewives of Orange County has afforded her and how grateful she is in an interview with Reality Tea.
Vicki Gunvalson is managing to stay a bit low-key this so far this season on The Real Housewives of Orange County. She’s not the center of the drama, aside from that little hiccup with Kelly Dodd, and her whooping-it-up is definitely toned down this time around. Even her blogs this season are pretty mild! Vicki shared her two cents on last week’s episode and it seems she’s trying to stay neutral on a lot of topics.
The OG of the OC reflected on her birthday celebration – an event she looks forward to every year. “I was really excited to take the girls golfing for my birthday, as I thought it would be something fun to do. My last year’s birthday party at my house was incredible to have so many people come to celebrate with me, but not having Tamra and Shannon there was hard. This year, I was so excited to have both of them with me, which made me so happy.”
Very few people can enjoy a vacation as much as Ramona Singer can. Well, after she has someone from the hotel staff unpack her luggage and hang up the clothes that she brought. She really seems to be having the most fun this summer. In between her weekends in the Hamptons, she’s been going on some amazing trips- minus the Real Housewives of New York drama that we are used to when we watch her on vacation.
Which is karma considering all the years Tamra has been practicing a particular brand of bad religion on everyone. What they’re really fighting over is how Tamra is sick of being good. Even Vicki Gunvalson, desperate to become Mrs. Steve Stupendously Staid And Boring, is letting her down, but she’s not allowed to fight with Vicki anymore… And what is it they say: Well behaved women rarely make things fun?
