Vicki Gunvalson

rhoc-lydia-doug-min

Lydia McLaughlin has great hair. That’s all I’ve got. (Kidding! But, I was surprised to hear she’d be back this season, given her mildly “blah” presence last time around). Since her return to The Real Housewives Of Orange County, Lydia has been trying hard to situate herself in the middle of the drama, rather than on its perimeters. Great move to keep that orange, but not so wise in terms of holding on to one’s sanity.

This week, Lydia was largely absent from the show, as she and her family frolicked in Hawaii – where they discuss sexy ladies and vasectomies. In her blog, Lydia explains why she and hubby Doug felt it was necessary to give their boys a sex talk…on the beach.

Peggy Sulahian Defends Pinching Meghan Edmonds' Lips Closed; Says She Was Making Vicki Gunvalson Uncomfortable

I couldn’t believe what I was watching when Peggy Sulahian pinched Meghan Edmonds’s lips shut during the last Real Housewives of Orange County  episode. First off, who does that? Second, Peggy had no idea what she was even reacting to since she just met Meghan that night and she has zero relationships with anyone in the cast.

It was even weirder because Vicki Gunvalson didn’t even seem to be that offended by Meghan’s words. Sure, she was kind of wound up, but Vicki is always wound up. Surprisingly enough, it seemed like they were just having a (relatively) mature discussion with a difference of opinion and they were both handling it pretty well… then Peggy stepped in and grabbed Meghan’s mouth.

Peggy Sulahian and Meghan Edmonds definitely did not hit it off during their first meeting on The Real Housewives Of Orange County. And now that Peggy’s seen the entire episode – including Meghan’s comments about Peggy and Diko’s Lamborghini event – she’s standing by her move to pinch Meghan’s lips closed more than ever!

First, Peggy expresses disappointment that Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador refused to attend her event out of sheer pettiness. Peggy also regrets being so curt with Shannon on the phone: “I’m glad that the girls were able to make it to our Lamborghini event, although sad that Tamra and Shannon weren’t able to attend. Upon calling Shannon to invite her to the event I hadn’t realized how abruptly I cut her off. The reason why I tried to keep the conversation short was because I didn’t want her to relive those dark moments. She did not owe me any explanation as to why she wasn’t able to attend.”

This week’s Real Housewives Of Orange County seemed like a bridge episode, linking us from the crazy plate tossing of yesterday to the Sip n’ See snubbing of tomorrow. Perhaps more than in any other season, battle lines have been drawn between the ladies, and Shannon Beador says she has no plans of crossing them anytime soon – especially when it comes to Vicki Gunvalson. Her position this season: Speak no Vicki, See No Vicki, Hear No Vicki.

Shannon does at least have room in her heart for babies! She gushes about meeting Meghan Edmond’s daughter, Aspen, for the first time. “Tamra [Judge] and I haven’t seen Meghan since she had her baby so it was nice to finally reconnect with her at lunch. I don’t think I have met a happier baby than Aspen, she is absolutely precious!”

Unfortunately for Meghan Edmonds, she doesn’t have much of a story line on Real Housewives of Orange County. Fortunately for Meghan this just means that she has a relatively drama free personal life. So obviously she has to dish on the other Housewives to stay on the show.

And this time it isn’t just all about Vicki Gunvalson. She even had some opinions on Luann D’Agostino going back to Luann de Lesseps after ending an eight month marriage.

Peggy Grabs Meghan's Lips

Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County newbie Peggy Sulahian demonstrated that she doesn’t have to be your mother to be your muva! If you left your manners in the car when you came to her event, Peggy will surely get out the bar of scented soap you sell in your pop-up boutique to wash your mouth out. Peggy certainly taught Meghan Edmonds that children should be seen and not heard! Exactly Meg, just stand there and look all ‘I’ve never had a baby and look at my chessboard inspired dress, cause I’m like smart! And on quest for TRUTH! Justice!”

But first there’s Tamra Judge, who got judged by a parrot that called her “old” as she walked into a restaurant to meet a baby looking like an escapee from a biker bar. How could anyone even see Aspen underneath the giant bow that ate the baby’s face!? I hope that’s not catching…

Vicki & Kelly on RHOC

This season of Real Housewives of Orange County, as usual, is going to be a fun (and confusing) game of who is on what team during any given episode. It changes so often that we need a score card. In her blog this week, Kelly Dodd expresses her frustration over Tamra Judge talking crap behind her back, Shannon Beador‘s desire to get her wasted all the time, and explains why she’s so angry and irked at Meghan King Edmonds.

Before Kelly dives into the drama of the latest episode, she gives us a little TMI about her vaginal tightening procedure. “You guys are probably wondering why I got my vagina tightened? I had originally discussed the technology and procedure with Dr. Niccole at CosmetiCare, thinking it might help my mother. Mom wasn’t interested, but I was. Most women I know have a problem with “leaking”, which can happen as we age or after having a baby. The walls of the vagina contain collagen fibers, which often lose tissue tone and elasticity. It can be embarrassing and stressful in social settings to leak urine when sneezing, coughing, jumping, and standing up, etc.”

Vicki Gunvalson

It’s not every day I wish to be friends with Vicki Gunvalson, but today is one of those days. Vicki treated family and friends to a luxurious getaway at the Merv Griffin estate in La Quinta, California, last weekend. If you’ll recall, Vicki hosted a trip at the estate last season on Real Housewives of Orange County.

Vicki shared a photo of her packed up car on Instagram. “Got it all packed into two cars completely full of food and alcohol! Can’t wait to spend the weekend in the desert with 28 family and friends, some flying in from Chicago, and [Steve’s] family including 1 from Germany! #rhoc #rhocseason12 #mervgriffinestate #family #desert #palmsprings #leftrightcenter #alcohol #itsgonnabehot #fishing #fourwheelers #woohoo” Look below to see the pics Vicki and son-in-law Ryan Culberson, who took the picture above with his drone, shared on Instagram.
