You might as well get the popcorn ready because the dramatic conclusion (ha!) of the Real Housewives of Orange County mercifully concludes TONIGHT, not on Monday in its regular time. This is great news for me since today is the first and it will get the blogging month off to a great start as we will only be outraged one last time about how brutal the other housewives are toward Vicki. Nothing makes you guys comment as much as these miserable reunions.
In this clip, it is clear that Andy is totally #TeamShannon as he seems to think that Shannon using Vicki as a listening ear to hear about the gory details of David’s cheating (imagine if we heard about his double dipping on her birthday, the level of detail she endured) amounts to emotional support for Vicki.

Alexis Bellino has apologized to Tamra Judge for coming across as judgmental in her email to Tamra (Via Andy) on the reunion. (SEE ABOVE VIDEO) She posted the following to her Instagram.
“I can see how my email might have come came across judgmental last night on RHOC, and I’m sorry about that, that was not my heart. @tamrajudge I’m sorry for sounding judgmental. Andy did not read this part of my email, ‘I truly hope Tamra has found the Lord because He will be the most invaluable precious thing she will ever have in life.’ THAT is my heart. God is a God of miracles, so I was hopeful and praying He would call the person who criticized me the most for my faith to His Kingdom one day. I was not trying to judge Tamra, I just wanted to make sure this was all coming from a good place, so please do not judge me. The Bible is clear that we are to hold each other accountable as sisters in Christ. I am imperfect and human, but I am steadfast in my faith and the Lord laid this conviction on my heart.”
It seems the art of an apology has been lost. The entire comment appears to be in reaction to others judging her judgmental behavior. Then she denies being judgmental herself, blames Andy Cohen, declares her our virtue in forgiving the person who criticized her, and then demands that people stop judging her. She then ends the whole thing by saying that the Bible says that Christians must hold each other accountable. Is that how apologies are supposed to go these days? Continue reading
I’m going to admit upfront, I’ve forgotten everything I ever knew about Alexis Bellino except that Tamra called her Jesus Jugs. Oh thank God David’s assistant whose name escapes me is filling us all in. It’s apparently their ten-year anniversary. It has to be done in a week. David also has his daughter’s first birthday party, Cielo. I hate that name by the way. It makes me think of CeeLo. It looks pretty on paper, but doesn’t sound right.
Alexis pretends to be shocked that David Tutera is in her house, despite being wired with a mike and camera crew all over her house. Did Alexis always talk this much? Alexis has ten ideas that don’t go together. Jim and Alexis are already fighting. My head hurts already. I have a 90 minute RHONJ episode to recap in less than two hours. I may not have time for this much drama.
Alexis and David are arguing at Michael Costello’s design studio. Alexis asked for a red dress but now has decided she wants plum which is good because when she walks out in the plum dress it is full of pins and tailoring cloth and she had clearly already been fitted for the dress several times. So no shocker, that will be her dress. Yet the charade continues. I think they just like making Alexis look stupid in ugly dresses. Alexis picks a white dress that she wants in red. David leaves to go take care of his kid’s birthday party because this staged scene is ridiculous. Continue reading
With rumors swirling that even after all the Brooks drama, Vicki is still seeing him, we get to see Vicki take another blow or three regarding the Brooks issue. Why on earth Brianna would humiliate her mother publicly rather than delivering the blows more softly and in private is beyond me.
Does Heather’s story about someone just deciding they must have her house ring true for y’all? I mean I’m sure it happens on rare occasions… but it just seems sort of random. OMG! She is really defending the onion ring incident? Yes, Heather, the man should have had his onion rings. In a question about Heather emasculating Terry, Heather’s answer is …wait for it…emasculating.

Before we even start, can someone explain to me who is dressing Andy lately? What is with all the hideous ties and no socks. He wore NO SOCKS for the Oprahcalpse and he is sockless again tonight wearing saddle shoes! I personally hate socks and rarely wear them, but with saddle shoes? That has to hurt! His wardrobe has really gone down.
I am ten minutes in to the reunion and there is nothing interesting to report. I don’t want to talk about Lydia’s mom’s pot smoking or Tamra’s teary suicide story. Let’s get to something interesting. I do love the audience comment that Tamra has been a bitch for six seasons, one speech is not going to change your image. I love how Andrew let’s the viewers make all the nasty observations and completely keeps the blood off his beige suit. Continue reading
Better late than never?
It’s time for the Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion Part One, otherwise known as Rehashing of The Same Old Arguments One More Time. I don’t get why Vicki is still not divorced from Don. I know these things take time but in California, don’t they just divide everything down the middle and that is that? Oh, Vicki doesn’t want to have to pay spousal support.
Gretchen and Heather both have stank faces as the Mexico drama reel plays. Gretchen’s dress, is making me claustrophobic. I could not handle a dress that wraps around my throat. Now they are literally showing clips from past reunions as they bring up the same old rumors about Gretchen cheating on Jeff. Lydia is somehow moderating the reunion. Oh great, Tamra has whipped out a file of photos of Gretchen making out with her side piece. We get it. She cheated. Move on.
Heather and Lydia get into it about the magazine cover. Lydia says Heather is just not well-known enough for the cover. Lydia did have a lengthy spread in the issue and that still irks Heather. Heather apparently blasted Lydia in her blog and Lydia is still pissed even though Heather apologized. These two still hate each other.
Lauri is on the couch! This should be good. Hmmm, I thought the grandbaby was in foster care? Yet here are photos of Josh and the baby. Lauri says everyone is just hunky dory. Odd. When Andy asks about Josh’s issues with addiction, Lauri says it is a process and he still as hope. That doesn’t sound like he is in the recovery stage. I really wish I knew where this foster care story originated from. I can’t see anyone just making that up, yet I have searched and found no credible source for the rumor. By credible source I do not mean someone saying it on a blog. I mean there must be a court record somewhere. Continue reading
