Unfortunately, much of it has been unfavorable, both from her co-stars (I see you, Vicki Gunvalsonand Shannon Beador,) and fans. Finally, Gina has had enough, and she is clapping back at her haters. No, she did not clap back at Vicki and Shannon (yet), but she did come for the social media trolls.
The most important part of any reunion is to dissect the outfits. First of all, Shannon Beador looks great! I don’t know if it’s the glowy spray tan indicating a break from Dr. Moon‘s holistic practices of wiping Shannon’s entire body in tan resistant mineral powders to ward of surface level UV free radicals, or the 30lb weight loss, or finally shedding her toxic friendship with Tamra Judge, but Shannon looks better than we’ve seen her in years. THIS is the divorced Shannon we were craving all season!
When Kelly Dodd first joined Real Housewives of Orange County, she was far from a fan favorite. Eventually, she became a polarizing character with some good points and plenty of entertaining arguments. Now that Kelly is on her third season, it’s safe to say she was the only reason to watch this season.
Pretty much nothing happened for most of the season. Thankfully, Kelly gave us comic relief, genuine emotion, and some iconic insults. “Little bitch,” anyone? As far as (most of) the fans are concerned, Kelly Dodd is the queen on Real Housewives of Orange County. Just don’t say that to the OG of the OC. Vicki Gunvalson accused Kelly of doing cocaine during the Season 13 reunion and Kelly is livid. Kelly is so upset that she claims she doesn’t want to return unless Vicki gets fired.
Look here’s the thing: at this point trying to center a whole season around whether or not Shannon is nuts is a moot point. It’s like the most rhetorical question ever asked of the Real Housewivesuniverse. It’s such a DUH that it’s like asking a 45-year-old if they believe in Santa. Or if wine should be included in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.
The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion looks a lot better than every episode this season. Combined. Sure, they’ve only released a trailer. We don’t know how the actual episodes will be, but the trailer looks so intense.
They are ALL screaming at each other. I’m here for it. This is the drama I craved all season. Let’s hope the ladies deliver.
After a dismal Season 12, Real Housewives of Orange County could only get better in Season 13. Is it the same caliber of a show that we once loved? No. It hasn’t been for a while.
Nevertheless, the stories did pick up at least a little bit in the back end of the season. Gina Kirschenheiterearned her orange for next season offended Tamra Judge, Vicki Gunvalson, and Shannon Beador. Tamra and Shannon’s relationship cracked. So what can we expect from tonight’s finale episode?
As we all know, Vicki Gunvalson’s infamous ex-boyfriend faked medical documents. It was the messiest storyline of all time. Meghan is an alum these days, but that does not mean she’s let go of her strong opinions. Not by a long shot.
