It’s past time for the RHOOC episode. Due to an emergency at Tamara Tattles Headquarters yesterday, I was unavailable. You can read all about that in my day long meltdowns at the end of comments here. We have comedy in the initial post and doom and despair in the comments. Now on to the show!
Shannon is moving and worried about rat poop and feng shui. I had my eyes on the TV and my ears were working but I tuned out completely. I assume I didn’t miss much other than Shannon hates the rental. I had a really cool dream last night and I keep thinking about it. Sorry. I’ll try to focus.
For some reason we need a montage of memories in the house. Mostly about the affair of course. Later, David and Shannon go to dinner. David looks pained in every scene. David tries to make it clear that he is not supporting her mother’s outburst. Shannon has a smug smile when David tells her that he told his mother she had to respect Shannon or she could not be around the family. Shannon orders ribs and then complains because they are messy.
Eddie takes Tamra out for dinner. I am not sure what kind of place they are at, but Tamra breaks her training diet for sake. So I’m thinking it’s going to be one of those bait shops folks in California like so much. But then they start eating hot peppers. Just crunchy hot peppers. Weird. And then the sashimi comes. Which, as I understand it is bait that they sort of cook but not really. I could be wrong. Or maybe all of California is wrong.

I am intrigued with Kelly Dodd. I don’t think I have her exactly figured out yet. I do like that she opted to befriend Vicki. It would have been much easier to ride along with the pack of witches and she took the harder route. I was suspicious that this was set up by production, and I still believe it was, but she still hangs out a lot with Vicki now that filming is over.
So once again, I’ve chosen her blog to purple pen. Then I decided to go ahead and review a few bits of the others.
This week’s episode was a challenge for our family to watch. While I enjoyed getting to know Vicki over lunch and building my relationship with Tamra and Shannon at Meghan’s demolition, I’m sad that my deep respect and love for Michael didn’t come through.
In retrospect, I probably tried too hard to relate to Tamra’s struggles in the wake of her divorce to Simon and as a result I painted Michael in the wrong light. Michael is a brilliant man, a wonderful father and a loving, compassionate husband.
Time to take a look at last night’s Orange County. Let’s hope it is a little bit lighter than the mess we saw on Southern Charm last night. We left off with Vicki selecting Heather as the first stop on her apology tour.
Vicki didn’t really practice enough for this conversation. She needed to walk into this knowing what, if anything, she was willing to apologize for and stick to her story. She’s all over the place. She thought that “please forgive me” was going to be sufficient. Heather said she’d be happy to forgive Vicki if she knew what she was asking to be forgiven for.
Back on the interior, Jeana is encouraging the others to forgive Vicki. It’s a war on two fronts. And she is not making and forward motion. So she moves on to crying for our benefit to try to get us to forgive her.
Why is there a committee to vote on whether a fourth grader is too sick for school?
Kelly calls Vicki an invites her to lunch. Can someone take away Kelly’s black brow pencil that looks gray and give her a nice sable brown one? Thanks.
I CAN’T DO THIS AGAIN!
The RHOOC trailer is up as I predicted. The RHONJ one should be along in a day or two. And once again the ability to host the trailer has been made difficult by the people at bravo. No other network in television makes it DIFFICULT to advertise their programing.
The girls go to Ireland to drink and milk cows this season. I thought I posted about that but it looks like I did not. Tamra’s storyline this season will be mostly about her body building in preparation for her competition. I believe that competition is in a few days. For some reason the date was moved. Body builders eat very little while training for a competition. I am not looking forward to a hangry Tamra.
There will be an unfortunate number of costumed events this season. In one fiasco, Terry looks like John Travota in a white suit and Heather may or may not be on roller skates. Skates are not, she takes a pretty hard fall on her ass. Other stupid costumes include body suits with nipple clamps and fake pubic hair (classy) and at least one body suit with a fake penis (seriously?). At one of these costumed events, David gets up in Vicki’s face shaking his finger and calling her a “fucking scumbag.” Perhaps this is where the issues between Shannon & David toward Vicki come to a head. I heard that it gets bad.
Heather Dubrow is also seen screaming at Vicki while jabbing her index finger in the air towards Vicki screaming at her to apologize for her shit! Tamra and Vicki’s crap daughter talk about Vicki behind her back on national TV again and discuss Vicki “stalking” Brooks presumably on the Internet.

Shannon Beador is NOT happy with Vicki’s interview on WWHL. She feels like Vicki is playing the victim card while knowing all along what was going on.
Shannon is on Facebook saying she has all the texts Vicki sent her starting on September 9th. Shannon brings up that on the reunion she said she sat at City of Hope for four hours, yet she told Mario Lopez she picked him up from City of Hope. None of her stories match up. Her WWHL story about walking around outside City of Hope for half an hour and then leaving with no checking out is a new story
Shannon says that we can say she is bitter and hate her all she wants. But she can’t just be quiet about this. Shannon says that Vicki sent everyone an email last week about the guy named Tony who supposedly took Brooks to chemo while Vicki was at Disneyland with Brianna and her kids. Shannon says if her man was having chemo, she would be there and not at Disneyland. There was an email from Tony that said that he stopped over to bring Brooks soup and hang out with him. He mentioned nothing about taking Brooks to chemo. Continue reading
Oh hey! Did y’all know that Brooks Ayers faked cancer on Real Housewives of Orange County? Because we’ve hardly talked about it at all here. Heavy sigh. And it appears we are about to talk about it again. Tonight we are going to hear Vicki Gunvalson try to explain her way out of this. I am probably Vicki’s best advocate through all of this and I am going to try to give her every benefit of the doubt, but based on some snippets of this show I’ve seen where she claims that make Brooks was drinking Visine or something to make himself sick, I’m confessing up front, I am going to have a hard time supporting her in this.
Andy starts with the statement put out on November 10th by City of Hope stating they had never treated Brooks. Okay Vicki is lying. She now says that Brooks called her from City of Hope and said he should be done in about an hour. When she got to the hospital she called him to ask where to go within the building. Wouldn’t you find this out in the initial phone call? Something like, “I’m on the third floor as the nurse to take you back, or wait in the waiting room?” You know how when a guy has been up to no good and give a very detailed accounting of their whereabouts over a period of several hours? Yeah. It’s just like that. “I turned left down the hall and he was sitting in the waiting room.” Um, why is he in a waiting room? I am not even going to type her long convoluted story. It’s clear to me she is lying. It is a much different story than what she said on the reunion, which was I sat in the waiting room for four hours while he had chemo. We can basically turn this off now. She’s in on it up to her eyeballs.
Vicki has come armed with a folder of documents. One is a text or email from Brooks saying that just because he doesn’t trust her with his medical records doesn’t make it right to accuse me of not having cancer. Huh? When would that conversation have happened? She was defending him up until a few weeks ago. Continue reading
