The RHOOC blogs are up. Lizzie’s blog was basically a recap with nothing particularly enlightening. She’s in a good place with Vicki now, and very leery of Tamra. Here are the highlights about the dynamics between the ladies as of now. Both Heather and Tamra are still refusing to accept responsibility for their behavior and deflect blame to others. Shannon seems to be continuously willing to try and move on. Heather and Tamra are somehow blaming Vicki for al of their troubles. Lizzie is still assessing from the sidelines but it appears she may pounce in Bali.
I have a true friend in Vicki Gunvalson. She understands me and is willing to go above and beyond to defend me. I truly appreciate that she sticks up for me again in her conversation with Tamra. I am not misplacing any emotions about my marriage onto her — I am justifiably upset with her for not being truthful again and again.
I can’t stand to argue, so when I am asked to Bali I am willing to try to once again move forward. I have been incredibly hurt, but am open to see if Tamra, Heather, and I can move past things. I have never been away on a girls’ trip, so it will be quite an adventure for me. Stay tuned next week as we go to Bali!
I can’t even pretend to have comments. Here is what SHE claims. #eyeroll.
I submitted my BRAVO blog, but here are a
few facts that I am sure Bravo will take out of my blog when they post it:1. production knew my daughter was sick and I could not make it to Lizzie’s birthday party. They asked me to wait until the cameras were up in the limo to let Lizzie know. then they had her call me and say “how rude that you didn’t call me”.
2. As soon as Vicki and Shannon found out I was not going they both called me (yes me and shannon were friendly even though they make it out that we are not at this point-Just a few days prior we were rock climbing together). Shannon told me she was sick too and was told by producers that she had to go. I told her that was not right and she needed to be strong with them.
Vicki and Tamra go for a walk so that Tamra can bitch about Ryan getting married. Tamra is right though, everything that happens to Vicki happens to her, divorce, kid with a health scare, wedding, and soon baby. Tamra and Vicki talk about Shannon. Vicki tries to explain to Tamra that she needs to apologize. Vicki wants Heather to apologize too. Fat chance.
Lizzie is having a birthday party. She’s turning 34 and has life all figured out. Must be nice. Heather is going to Vegas, so it is safe for Shannon to come. Heather wants to have a Valentine’s Day party. Vicki and Shannon have already declined. Is that some sort of Quiet Riot tribute on the wall with all the records and the guitar? How does Shannon allow that?
At Lizzie’s birthday no one is showing up. Lizzie’s boobs are oddly smashed into her dress. Shannon’s sick. Tamra’s kid is sick. Heather is in Vegas. That leaves Vicki and that one brunette girl, Pam or whatever. It seems I am not the only one who did not believe Tamra’s excuse. Lizzie and Vicki talk in the limo and it becomes obvious to Lizzie that Tamra is a shit stirring liar. She’s starting to pick up on the lay of the land. I feel sorry for Lizzie sitting at a restaurant table for 12 with just her husband and Vicki and Brooks. What a sad birthday.
The evil step sisters Heather and Tamra plan a trip to Bali. Vicki is their first call. Vicki is in charge of making the girls aware that Bravo has made this trip as an all in, housewives brawl in foreign lands trip. Christ Bali is far. I guess it is five hours closer if you live on the west coast? Nope, it’s a 15 hour flight from ATL and 19.5 from LAX. UGH. This is a miserable trip with miserable travel companions. I can’t imagine the hell this will be. Continue reading
Bravolebrities turned out to celebrate Scheana Marie’s marriage to longtime boyfriend Mike Shay, yesterday. Gretchen Rossi, Joyce Giraud and Golnesa Gharachedaghi arrived dressed to impress. But Slade needs a haircut and a shave. And yes, you can expect to see it on Vanderpump Rules. Continue reading
Vicki Rides the high roller overlooking Vegas!
It seems my story about the housewives in Las Vegas last weekend spawned a few people from the service industry in Vegas to give me some updates on housewives and their tipping habits. The report on Shannon and David is from last weekend. The report on Patti Stanger and Brandi Glanville was from a few weeks ago. Most of the others occurred last year. Enjoy!
Shannon and David Beador
Very friendly toward waitstaff and all who approached her for photos. This source says she was approached a lot. She was a bit kooky and David was keeping an eye on her drinking. Shannon and David were affectionate and left a nice tip. They were there with Heather McDonald who has a reputation for being a bitch and not tipping.Ditto, Heather’s friend Chelsea Handler also a non tipper who was at the same venue previously. And received comps.
Gretchen and Slade
Last summer, on a day Gretchen Rossi got some bad news, she and Slade and a posse were in Vegas. They were comped in the club but also did not choose to tip. Continue reading
It’s time for the weekly blog round up for the Real Housewives of Orange County! A line has been drawn between Shannon and Tamra & Heather. Let’s see makes up the current alliances. I ‘m starting with Lizzie, who was on WWHL this week, (sorry for not recapping Monday was a busy night with the finale of Ladies of London) and she made it clear that she and Tamra are not speaking and that the reunion will be a doozy. One of the reasons the finale generally does not film until almost all of the shows have aired is so that the housewives can see all the talking heads and scenes they were not involved with. I imagine they also get copies of the shows that have not aired yet. I have a feeling this reunion did not go well for Tamra, at all. I can’t wait to see it!
I’ve selected the important parts from everyone’s blog so you don’t have to sort through it all. You’re welcome in advance. :) Continue reading

Back at Lizzie’s lovely beach house dinner, Tamra is literally grabbing Shannon by the head and pushing her away from Heather. You are the one that lit this fire Tamra, why don’t you just sit back and cackle while it burns? Tamra goes running through the house after Shannon grabbing her everywhere she can and screeching at her to STOP IT! I would have hauled off and knocked that bitch to the ground. She tells Tamra to let go of her and get away from her. Shannon pleads with Lizzie to get Tamra to let go of her. David finally comes out and tells Tamra to give her some space and she does. David goes to get her coat and Tamra is right back to grabbing Shannon by the wrists! Why doesn’t Lizzie pull Tamra off of Shannon? Why doesn’t anyone see how much Tamra is pouring gasoline on the fire?
Heather and Tamra go on the balcony to pretend like they care that Shannon is having some sort of breakdown. Tamra lies straight to Heather’s face. She admits to “trying to restrain” Shannon but says that Shannon went nuts and broke her hold.
Vicki goes out to comfort Shannon who is outside with David. David just needs to take Shannon home. Meanwhile, Tamra and Heather have decided to ask Terry if they should call an ambulance because Shannon is having a psychotic break. Christian tells them to simmer down, and that Shannon does not need an ambulance. Thank God there is one sane man at the party. Eddie is thrilled to have everyone occupied so that he can text with his boyfriend. Lizzie looks horrified in the direction of Heather and Tamra. Tamra and Heather are being ginormous cunt bags. Tamra says she is worried Shannon is suicidal. Heather starts making it all about Heather whispering to Tamra that it is her fault that she can’t get past her issues with Shannon. Heather is shaking! Which makes no fucking sense. Tamra is blaming Shannon for her bad behavior toward Heather. The idiots outside “helping” Shannon can not seem to get her in a car with her husband so she is going to do an encore before leaving.
Vicki Rides the high roller overlooking Vegas!
What happened in Vegas, almost stayed in Vegas. Most of it is still a mystery, but I do have some tea. First of all, Kenya Moore was there with Kyle Richards, Vicki Gunvalson, Melissa Gorga for an event at Caesar’s Place. It appears that the housewives competed in several events with a high roller from the casino as a partner. In one event, “runway walking” Kenya takes an unexpected bobble and makes it all seem like part of the performance. Her impressive recovery won that round for her team. See the video at end of post. But read on for lots of other Vegas tea! Continue reading
This picture does not give an accurate account of what Tamra’s face looks like.
Well, Tamra has some splainin’ to do after what we just saw on the Real Housewives of Orange County Tonight. Let’s she how she spins her awful behavior. Andy says in his opening that gossip is spreading through Orange County like chlamydia and a lot of people believe that Tamra is patient zero. I could not have said it better myself. Andy says Tamra is getting roasted on Twitter tonight. Also Tamra has done something to her face again and it looks really, really bad. She’s starting to look a lot like Adrienne Maloof. Both guests are in hot pants. I have no idea who that other girl is in seat one. Tamra takes a jab at Andy during a game for putting her in the second seat.
Andy compliments Vicki for staying out of the fray and Heather scoffs and looks insulted. Next, Andy goes after the white eyeliner in the Talking Heads. Tamra says her regular make-up artist was unavailable that day. It was a two-hour interview and it is just being used a lot. Continue reading
We begin tonight with a double date with Vicki, Brooks, Heather and Terry. It doesn’t take long for Terry to ask about their trip with Shannon and David. Terry says, “I’m sure you heard what happened with Shannon at our house. ” Vicki gives a brief run-down of Shannon’s side. Heather immediately comes for Vicki about talking about her behind her back! Are you kidding me? Heather thinks Vicki is taking Shannon’s side. Vicki suggests that Heather be nicer to Shannon. Heather is pissed.
Shannon and David are doing better since their trip to Mexico. Sophia is taking a trip to Italy with her Latin class and David has volunteered to chaperone the trip.
Lizzie and her husband are renovating the family beach house. Lizzie is thinking of having a dinner party at the beach house, I assume after renovations are done. But it’s going to happen on this episode, so. Well, it may not be finished but it looks beautiful for the party. It’s dinner for 12 with an ocean view. On the way to the party in the limo, David and Shannon talk about the fact that several times previously, Tamra has told them that Terry said that he wants to take the Beadors down. Continue reading

Vicki shared in her Bravo blog this week that she was in Oklahoma awaiting the birth of her second grandson. Vicki said, “I’m in Oklahoma right now counting down the days for my second grandson to be born. I flew my mother out here from Chicago to experience the birth of Briana’s new baby boy. He is expected to arrive in this world on Wednesday by C-section assuming she doesn’t go into labor prior to that. Let’s just say Briana is counting down the hours as she is READY to get this baby out of her. I’ll keep everyone posted on the name and weight once he’s born. Thank you all for keeping Briana is your prayers for a healthy delivery.”
So that is four generations of her family in Oklahoma for the birth! Apparently Vicki wrote that blog post before July 4th because on the 4th Briana was sure the baby was coming and Vicki had to suddenly dash to the airport and fly out early As it turns out, it was a false alarm and the baby was born today as previously scheduled. Continue reading
We begin with the Real Members of the AARP dancing on the bar in Mexico. Seriously, they are about 35 years to old for that nonsense. The next day, Vicki takes the Beadors horse back riding. Shannon complains. She goes out of her way to make a nice romantic lunch for just the Beadors. Shannon complains. Oh Shannon! Lighten up Francis you are on vacation! At lunch, Shannon can’t be in the moment and enjoy the beautiful setting on the river. Shannon cries and unloads on David. She says they don’t do anything together. They are spending time together NOW! And they are not enjoying the moment! It’s so sad. Shannon thinks that David wants a divorce.
At Cut Fitness, Eddie spent $30,000 on the studio floor which was a disaster. Tamra and Ryan think the floors need to be redone immediately. Eddie is being confrontational about it.
Heather and the kids got out to dinner and for once, Heather’s kids were kind of bratty. So the nanny showed up and took them out for frozen yogurt. Heather wants to get a dog so she can train it while they are living in a rental. She claims that she has to get a dog with a pedigree due to everyone’s allergies. I see a dog nanny being hired within the week. Continue reading
