Remember that episode of Real Housewives of Orange County y’all watched last Monday? Well I FINALLY WATCHED IT! And since it’s rather late for a recap, I will just share some random thoughts. Mostly about Lauri, and Gretchen…. Click through for the tea…
My first random thought is how weird it is that Bravo is doing some sort of photo montage to Lauri’s children in the middle of Tamra’s ring shopping scene. I have never liked the editing on this show, it is very difficult to recap. The other thing when I first got on twitter about a year and a half ago I got dragged into a conversation. You know how someone will tag you in to a conversation you know nothing about and there is your name on every post like you are actually paying attention? Well, I was never a huge RHOOC fan mostly because I can’t keep any of their names and faces straight… so imagine my surprise having been on twitter only a short while that some RHOOC was yelling about something that I was tagged in. I am pretty sure it was Lauri. I remember not knowing who she was at the time and someone saying she used to be on RHOOC. Anyway, her kids were on twitter and there was some family feud and the kids were angry tweeting either their mother or some other twats. twatters. tweeps. Whatever. I remember something about heroin and military school and just lots of family drama. Then I read somewhere just the other day that the son with addiction problems (allegedly) got married and had a baby with a girl who has the same addiction problems (allegedly) and the baby was born with heroin withdrawal and is a ward of the state. I can’t really find any credible source for that. I did find someone claiming to be Slayte Peterson, Lauri’s stepson posting everywhere that he ran away from home months ago and that he is finally 18 and out from under his “abusive” father’s control. This I believe is the same kid that was twittering back and forth with Lauri a year or so ago. Sounds like there is not much right going on in that household. Yet, let’s sip our tea and watch this lovely family photo homage…
Lauri uses the rings to bring up Vicki’s ex-husband Don. And gives Tamra an opening to trash talk Vicki.
Is Lydia’s whole storyline going to be “My mom is a pothead?” I’m bored.
OMG Alexis is wanting to pursue her acting career. They show her clip from General Hospital. It was bad. Very bad. So very bad. She seems very nervous talking to the acting school people who seem to have some thinly masked disdain for her. I imagine they drew straws for this and these two poor souls lost. Her dress lines are running themselves? And what happened to Jim saying she needed to stay home barefoot and pregnant? And Alexis drives a Rolls?
Speaking of Rolls Royce, in this episode Slade pretends to give Gretchen a Rolls Royce. However, Gretchen announced on her website that she is designing a Gretchen Rossi Rolls Royce with pink this and that’s for a special edition 2013 Ghost. Why she just didn’t admit that the whole scene with the car was a promotional scene (aka advertisement) is beyond me. Was anyone really supposed to believe Slade bought her a car? Also, the editing with Gretchen is weird. they don’t seem to be showing her middle section much. Perhaps she is already pregnant? Remember that scene on the couch last week where she was trying to be so very understanding about not getting pregnant while Slade’s child was in intensive care? Seems to me like they went back and filmed that after she found out she was. That’s just my guess. I have no source for that.
Alexis cannot act. I just don’t think it is her forte. Heather is a pro. It’s sort of evil for Bravo to juxtapose the scenes. The whole crew (minus Alexis) is at the studio for taping. Gretchen and Slade were late and bored because it was not about them. Other than that, everything is going great. So clearly we need to have a sit down dinner to end with a little drama. Gretchen brings up that Slade “gave her” a Rolls that she claims she is technically buying. They needed to do that so they could all say “Rolls Royce” a few more times. It’s in the contract. I’m sure this one is a loaner, but that they will give her one of the ones she is “designing.” Gretchen is pissy because Tamra and Vicki are dropping the bitch issue. We then have a talking head where Gretchen denies being pissy because Tamra and Vicki are dropping the bitch issue.
Terry is adorable and barely gets any sort of bitchslap from Heather at all. Tamra bought some of the coolest novelty glasses I’ve ever seen. I want them all. One pair had a pig nose, Vicki puts them on and then says to Slade, “What do you think?” And that is why I like Vicki.
Apologies if this is all old news. The good news is the Jodi Arias Trial is over! I’m back!
