Last week, the Real Housewives of Orange County stars were in Miami. On tonight’s episode, they had to Key West, aka the place where David Beador may have cheated on Shannon Beador.
Ironically, it seems like Shannon is the one who puts the drama into motion during this Key West trip. She tells Kelly Dodd what Vicki Gunvalson has been up to behind her back, even though Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter had been in the know. Apparently, Vicki got in touch with a woman Kelly fought with at a bar. Oh, Vicki, she really did what she could to save that orange. Unfortunately for her, it didn’t work.
2019 has not been a good year for former Real Housewives of Orange County star, Meghan King Edmonds, and it doesn’t seem to be improving. Meghan has been dealing with the fallout of estranged husband Jim Edmonds’ cheating scandal, which made headlines over the summer. For some reason, Jim felt the need to do the stroke and text it to a former hook up while Meghan was giving birth to their twins. Although the couple entered counseling to navigate the process of repairing their relationship, more problems were headed their way.
Meghan soon discovered one of her children was suffering from irreversible brain damage. Instead of being defeated, Meghan took a proactive approach and began intensive therapy in an effort to provide early intervention. While dealing with Jim’s blatant infidelity, new rumors began to plague the couple. Now Jim may or may not be cheating with the nanny. Because of his tarnished reputation, it didn’t seem outlandish for the speculations to be true. Jim Bob filed for divorce after a blowout argument with Meghan that involved police. Now Meghan is trying to handle Jim’s gross sexting, constant care for her son and other two children, Jim’s loudmouth family members, alleged nanny banging, and divorce. In an ill-fated turn of events, one more thing is being added to Meghan’s list of crap to deal with. And it very well could be the worst thing yet.
After receiving the Demotion Heard Around The World, Vicki Gunvalson might be back. The poor thing was humiliated and did not take her downgrade on Real Housewives of Orange County very well. We all know Vicki’s former popularity dropped after she chose a man who lied about cancer over everything else in her life. We also know Vicki has a clinical condition known as Cannotshutthefuckupitis. Apparently, treatments for this disease are still in the research phase.
But it’s more than that because fans have a long term relationship with Vicki’s lack of accountability. This is someone who attempts to provide wise words on everything from relationships to financial security, yet fails in every relationship and gives generously to scam artists. Vicki never wanted to lose her slot and even after
buying her own ring coercing Steve Lodge into proposing, she was kicked off the main credits of RHOC. But beggars can’t be choosers and Vick definitely falls into the begging category. Begging for casseroles. Begging for apologies. Begging for her job back. Recently, Vicki pulled a stunt queen move when she tried to sue Bravo and co-star Kelly Dodd for defamation. In the blink of an eye, that lawsuit went away. Now we’re finding out those legal papers might have been replaced by a renewed full-time contract.
Kelly Dodd is no stranger to showing it all on Real Housewives of Orange County. She clearly isn’t afraid to say what she means or call out the tres amigas. In other words, Kelly is carrying this season on her back. Tamra Judge said prior to the start of the season that Gina Kirschenheiter was going to be the rockstar to watch. I guess now it makes sense that Tamra would say this, considering she’s on the outs with Kelly.
It’s definitely Kelly who carries the show. She is not afraid to put all the worst parts of herself on TV for our entertainment. Lately, a lot of good things have been coming her way. She is now engaged to Fox News reporter Rick Leventhal. Her relationship with Rick is a positive, and interestingly, she doesn’t seem to want to show this on RHOC.
You guys I’m sorry – I am having Thanksgiving fever and 15 houseguests, and I just cannot get it together with the Real Housewives Of Orange County nonsense today.
Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd are like your mother and your mother-in-law at the same holiday dinner. They’re not gonna speak or look at each other. But, they are going to viciously jab from all corners until it all comes bubbling to the surface over the way to make gravy or something.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke invited all the women to Miami so they can understand her better. Apparently, we’re now defining our personalities by cities, so Braunwyn is a Miami person. In Miami, she liked having sex with her husband, clubbed constantly, and wore skanky clothes to the grocery store. Whereas in Orange County, Braunwyn has to hide her wild side? I don’t get it… How was Braunwyn doing all this partying in between 52 pregnancies, nursing 19 babies, and also well, ostensibly, parenting? We don’t ever get a clear answer about why they left Miami, just like we don’t get a clear answer about why this is the sad-sack trip RHOC got this season. I blame Tamra because I blame her for everything.
Just like many viewers, Kelly Dodd has had it with the Tres Amigas. She’s had up and down relationships with Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson for years, but it really seemed like she had a genuine friendship with Shannon Beador. So much for that. Thanks to those train rumors and some Jim Bellino interference, their bond has been broken.
During last night’s Real Housewives of Orange County episode, a post-strip club Kelly hated on Shannon’s hairstyle. I have to give props to Shannon for switching up her look. Was it my favorite look? No. Was it lost on me that she copied Tamra? Absolutely not. Nevertheless, Kelly’s comments were unnecessary. To make matters worse she said that women over fifty shouldn’t have long hair. That’s far from the most offensive thing that Kelly has ever said. Nevertheless, the RHOC viewers took issue with her remarks and Kelly responded.
Kelly Dodd has been a very busy Housewife on this season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. When Kelly is not slamming Vicki Gunvalson’s very existence, gonging Shannon Beador or dating a plastic surgeon, she has been fending off ugly rumors about herself. Rumors like supposedly being banned from her daughter’s school and participating in a Midnight Sex Train to Georgia.
Most recently, there have been whispers about Kelly allegedly pushing her mother down the stairs, which she emphatically denies. Of course, Tamra Judge claims she was just whispering the information to anyone who would listen to “support” Kelly. We all know spreading unsubstantiated gossip is the best way to show our concern for our friends! Kelly has been estranged from her mother for two years and recently offered some additional details about her family drama and the alleged stairs incident.
Poor Vicki Gunvalson, can’t
we she get a break? After receiving a humiliating demotion on Real Housewives of Orange County, other troubles continue to plague Vicki. The serial liar black cloud known as Brooks Ayers just won’t go away. Viewers took a long and painful journey while Vicki was involved with Brooks. The man was responsible for quite possibly the most devious scandal in Housewives history, and Vicki stood by his side every step of the way.
During Victim and Brooks’ courtship, Vicki managed to lose fans, friends, and her dignity. Her blind devotion to someone lying about having cancer resulted in some severe consequences. Vicki didn’t just invite Brooks into her love tank, she invited him to do business with her. Vicki’s Vodka was a
total failure business venture created in the hopes of fattening their wallets and keeping Brooks in new dentures. It didn’t exactly turn out that way. Even though the couple is done, in March of this year, Vicki sued Brooks for breach of written and verbal agreements, as well as fraud. But Brooks has another plan and it doesn’t include writing Vick a check. Thus the saga continues in the agonizing neverending tale of Vicki and Brooks.
