It’s time to check back in with the ladies of the OC. I really meant to purple pen some of their blogs this week but we’ve been slammed here at Tamaratattles.com and I honestly haven’t had a minute to do it. I wanted to address Vicki’s account of leaving the hospital, but perhaps she will recount it for us tonight and I can address it then.
Meanwhile, just before the show started, I posted this story about some debacle at PUMP last night involving Kelly and probably Vicki (though she was not named in the incident report the manager posted) sounds like someone had a little too much fun again and has pissed off the Vanderpump. OOOPS. Kelly follows me because I am a Vicki/Kelly friend blog (except for lots of you assholes) so I hope she doesn’t go all in on me. She has lashed out at fellow bloggers recently, but for now I think I’m still in the good category. Probably. Maybe. Perhaps you should hold a fucking prayer chain or something just in case. Who knew rich people fought over their dinner checks? Rich folks. They’re just like us y’all. Except they can afford to get drunk on those $20 weak drinks at PUMP.
Tamra was released from the hospital in about three hours. They must have really good hospitals there. I think I’d still be waiting at mine today for the accident six months ago. She seems really sore and stiff. Tamra isn’t up for a three hour car ride so she heads back to camp to rest. Maybe Heather will let her lay down in her fancypants bus. Tamra had a lot of guilt after the accident. Eddie seems like he was such a good husband through it all.
Meghan goes to play some golf with Shannon. I don’t understand how Shannon wears all of that makeup in the heat. Why doesn’t it melt off her face? Look, I can deal with Meghan this season, but I can’t with Shannon, I’m sorry. I love that Meghan is shady toward her in her talking head.
After they play a few holes (Shannon is not a golfer) the girls head back and Meghan tells Shannon about the accident. It’s weird that was not the first thing out of her mouth. It would have been for me. Heather calls right as Shannon is getting the news and she does all the polite things right up to the part where Heather and Kelly start in with the Vicki is all alone sob story. I just don’t understand Heather and Kelly thinking these two are going to drop their vacation plans to go play nursemaid to Vicki. They hate Vicki. Why on earth would they go to the hospital. It makes no sense to me other than to have a storyline to bitch about. Of course Shannon has the same reaction Meghan did, “Huh, that’s too bad.” Meghan asks if Vicki’s son is on the way, and then they lost their connection. I think after Brianna, Michael is the first of many more appropriate people to go to the hospital. I think that pretty much all of Orange County would be better choices to go see her than Shannon and Meghan. Meghan checks online and tells them that they are only 45 miles away themselves, they should go, they are her friends.
David tells Shannon to tell Vicki to text Brooks, and let’s get back to golf. Again, I agree with the dark side on this one. As Meghan said, “I wouldn’t want Vicki to come see me!”
Tamra returns to camp. She had bulging discs in her lower spine before the accident and they are now inflamed.
At dinner with Shannon and Meghan things get ridiculous. First, Meghan and Jim act like Kelly and Heather were laughing and drinking beer during the first call. No, Kelly was having a beer after a traumatic situation and Heather was being a bitch about it and no one was laughing. Then Shannon wants to know why people were taking photos of Vicki on a back board going to the hospital. Well, Shannon, it’s because Vicki is overly dramatic about everything so someone had the presence of mind to take a couple of pictures to let you know how bad it was. I don’t think anyone was expecting you to mock the photos. I presume they thought your reaction might be, “Oh dear, that looks really bad, I hope she is okay!” But then again, this is Shannon. Shannon is one of those idiots who doesn’t know what a selfie is. Vicky clearly did not take the photo you moron. It is interesting that Jim is actually interested in this situation. He seems way more interested in defending Meghan to Heather than anything else that has happened during filming including finding out he was having another kid.
Kelly is now a bit tipsy and is hugging Heather and telling her how grateful she was for how Heather took charge and took care of everyone. Heather was happy to accept the apology.
Okay, here is my current issue. I don’t usually listen to podcast because I don’t have time, but this weekend I was doing some cooking and I played Heather McDonald’s podcast Juicy Scoop. I love it and there are so many episodes I have not heard yet. So anyway I listened to an interview with Tamra who seemed to spoil the end of the season and why everyone turns on Vicki again. It appears that some hard fast proof came up about Vicki and her involvement with the whole cancer thing. So I am sitting here listening to Meghan talk about her issues making up with Vicki because of all of Vicki’s lies thinking on one hand, we have no proof of what she knew and when she knew it and on the other hand wondering if Tamra’s version of events can be trusted. Anyway, when it comes to Shannon I don’t want Vicki to ever be her friend again under any circumstances.
Tamra calls Shannon and Meghan to let them know how bad the accident was and the she yells at them because Vicki had to Uber home at 1 am in a paper gown because desert flower’s asshole of a husband cut he clothes off and she had nothing to wear. First of all, I think all of you idiots using Uber is insane. That’s just some idiot with a car who signed up to play cab driver. They could be axe murders for all you know. I wouldn’t take one with clothes on, let alone dial one up and go on a three hour car ride with one, nekkid. Also, the hosptial would give her scrubs to wear. They are not going to let a woman with a neck injury leave the hospital naked but for a paper gown with a random Uber driver at 1 am. And finally, why isn’t she yelling at Michael instead? He’s her son! Hell even Don would have probably gone to get her if Brianna asked him. Where is he? Did I mention how ridiculous this entire situation is? Why not call Jeana? Or Lizzie? or Gretchen? There are a million people I can think of who would be better choices than Shannon and Meghan and I don’t live there or know Vicki. Why not her office colleagues? Anyone but Uber.
Jim says the whole situation is asinine and they are being ridiculous and he’s out of the situation. So am I . I am not going to have the same conversation over and over.
In the meantime, Vicki’s jerk of a daughter tells us that she isn’t so worried about her mother because she’s just embellishing things for attention. What a peach of a kid she is. She’s in San Diego getting a PET Scan. Apparently they were fresh out of PET Scan techs in the entire OC area. So Vicki, who is in a neck brace and on morphine is watching the boys.
Vicki is also filming a scene with Meghan. I thought maybe she was going to apologize for not going to the hospital. Meghan is blaming Tamra for being careless with everyone’s lives. WTF? Then she does apologize. Vicki is super dramatic in the retelling of the hospital story.
Tamra is trying to see what she can do at the gym because she has her big competition in two weeks. It will eventually turn out that the competition was pushed out four weeks.
Heather, Kelly and Tamra all descend on Vicki with gifts and lots of attention. Vicki is in hog heaven. Tamra has post traumatic stress from the accident. She can’t stop thinking about the possibility that someone could have died.
Heather and Tamra have dinner with Shannon. Heather goes in on Shannon for defending Meghan. Heather is pissed that Meghan hasn’t even called to see how she is. Heather and Tamra both want Shannon to be on their side and for her to throw Meghan under the bus.
Shannon sold her house and the buyers want all of their furniture. That’s pretty awesome. The idea of starting from scratch with all new furnishings sounds fun.
Heather meets Meghan for lunch. Heather doesn’t order because she is planning to have Megan for lunch. Meghan is struggling with pregnancy hormones and depression. This should help. Heather starts by saying she thinks she has PTSD and that the accident was really bad. I can’t with this argument. Eventually, Meghan just apologized her butt off.
This episode was a wasted hour of my life I will never get back.
But next week, David’s mom shows up to tell the housewives that Shannon pushed David into an affair. So that is something to look forward to at least.
