David Tutera’s CELEBRations: Alexis Bellino’s Vow Renewal

CELEBrations Alexis meltdown. 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

Please Welcome, Tamra and Eddie Judge!

Why is tonight’s episode showing up as episode 2 on my TV’s description thingy? I thought this was three and the last one. Let’s hope that is a mistake.  Anyhoo, we begin with seating charts and fake scripted crap about Eddie not wanting the other wives there. I mean it’s not like these two didn’t jello wrestly Gretchen and Slade to get the free wedding spin-off.

Are they seriously at a place called Pretty Kitty to get their chuckalina’s waxed? I can see the bride having that done, but is it necessary for the entire wedding party to march down the aisle with puffy chuckys straight from a Brazilian as well?  I have never been asked to wax my floors, so to speak, as part of my wedding party obligations. Though I suppose it’s probably less painful than some other parts of supporting a bridezilla. Thankfully, she has her best gay and some other dude to bear witness. Because, that happened.

Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion Part 3

RHOOCcast2

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. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion Pt. I

RHOOCcast2Better 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

RHOOC Finale Recap: What the Heck is Ryan’s Deal?

RHOOCallYAY! It is a RHOOC mandatory party! Who will go sleep with the fishes penguins? The topic is of course how much everyone hates Gretchen (and Slade.) There are actual people at this party. Where did they come from?  Ryan is cavorting with the enemy talking trash about  Vicki to Gretchen and Slade. He is sure to point out that Brooks is a douchebag. Gretchen confronts Heather about Malibu Country Gate 2013. Heather is very condescending to Gretchen about the whole thing. Heather has an acting career, and Gretchen is a wannabe. Gretchen apologizes for hurting Heather’s feelings by being disengaged at the Hot in Cleveland shoot and that is not good enough for Heather. What is wrong with Heather this season?  Why is she such a follower of the pack when everyone decides the season target is Gretchen?

Tamra apologizes to Jim Bellino! This is a sure sign of the apocalypse! Jim and Alexis both cry! I am speechless! Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Recap

RHOOCcast2Time for the Real Housewives of Orange County! Personally, after just watching two people cry for an entire hour on The Bachelorette, probably need and extry anti-depressant. But don’t talk about that, the unfortunate west coasters have not seen it yet. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County: Someone Needs to be Donkey Punched

RHOOCcast2Sorry for the delay on the Real Housewives of Orange County Recap, I took one of my great sleeps. It seems weird to be recapping it during the day, but here we go!

Poor Lydia has a scene with Tamra to discuss Alexis. It seems that Lydia has been tasked with bringing Alexis and Tamra together. Lydia says she is the friendship whisperer. She seems to be enjoying this role. Tamra’s transformation into someone likeable begins with this episode.

Gretchen and Heather are planning a bachelorette party for Tamra. Which is sort of hilarious because behind the scenes Gretchen and Tamra are clawing each other’s eyes out trying to be the one to get a wedding spin-off. Rumor has it Tamra won that battle. Back on the show, Bravo has made an ad deal with some swimsuit company that is not that chick from Shahs of Sunset  Gretchen does what everyone does when they throw a bachelorette party, they design a custom swimsuit for someone who cannot show up for a fitting. Yeah, I don’t get this either. Heather wants an art gallery and spa treatments. Gretchen just wants strippers. I am not sure how we went there but now they are arguing over swimsuits. This whole scene was …odd. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Recap : I Don’t Believe In Anything, But I Want to Be Someone Who Believes…

RHOOCcast2I’m BAAACK! Sorry for cheating on y’all with my new Jodi Arias friends. Some of them watch real housewives though so we will have some new people to argue with and call names friends!  We begin Real Housewives of Orange County tonight with Heather complaining to Tamra. Gretchen was rude at my Hot in Cleveland shoot. Things are not perfect with my rich husband and beautiful family! Why must I suffer so much?! etc.

This shoot in Laguna is making me miss my friend Kimberly who lives in the OC about a 5 blocks from the beach (you may recall her guest blog here). Why does watching TV make me want to book flights to every location I see? I’m such a nomad. Must wander.  Anyway. Lydia is the “Cynthia” of RHOOC. She is the one that has to catch the outsider housewife (Alexis) on everything to which she was not invited. Lydia wants to smooth the waters for Alexis with the other girls and thinks she needs to talk to Tamra.

Vicki goes to visit Brooks where he lives in a house for which Vicki probably pays. She walks in like she owns the place, because she probably does. Brooks needs hair plugs or to shave his head. Vicki brings lunch from some place that serves an upscale meat and two veggies. Brooks wants to take Vicki to a nice hotel for the weekend, but she has to babysit and offers up the following weekend. Brooks is “unavailable” (he muttered that and I had to listen twice).  Unavailable because….? That should be Vicki’s first THREE questions. I’m GUESSING she supports his ass. The next weekend he goes to Mississippi to see his kids and his daughter’s play. Really? I thought all his exes despised him. hmmm. The whole scene seemed very scripted  and uncomfortable. What woman would not ask what he is doing during that middle weekend?

Tamra is meeting with a speech coach because she’s “never spoke” in front of people before. Blah blah whatever. I’m bored. I’m focused on how creepy this speech expert dude is. Continue reading

RHOOCcast2

Random Thoughts on Real Housewives of Orange County

RHOOCcast2Ooops. I lost track of time while babysitting another thread. So this isn’t going to be a full recap. Or even much of a recap at all. Let’s call it a “random thoughts” post tonight. I find myself saying that a lot about The Real Housewives of Orange County. It’s not that I don’t like the show, there just usually isn’t a whole lot to comment on.  We begin, or at least I’m beginning at the Wine for Wives Infomercial. Immediately upon arrival it seems the evil hand of Tamra is already stirring the pot.  Everyone is staying in the same building except for Vicki who has been ostracized.  Vicki already feels out of place being the only single lady there and now she is not even in the same building with the wives. She gets a little teary-eyed and the evil blonds immediately start to mock her.Tamra does the Adrienne Maloof “Someone is crying!” routine. They must teach them that in Bravo villain school. Terry  and Lydia each offer to take Vicki into their room (I am sure Heather will have a fit about that) which I am sure only made Vicki feel worse. Poor Vick. She is not a very emotionally independent person. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County : A Bible Story

RHOOCcast2Time for the Real Housewives of Orange County again. It seems like the weeks have just been flying by lately. I think it was last week that someone pointed out that my recap was not thorough enough for their liking. That person will probably be disappointed again. I’m probably not going to give a huge blow-by-blow unless something really interesting happens.

Somehow I was a couple minutes behind (must have paused the TV) so when I tune in we have an unlikely trio of Heather, Tamra and Lydia out for lunch. Lydia is talking about her mother, who is very wealthy. so she will be considered eccentric rather than batshit crazy like us commoners. Heather is blathering about not wanting to dislike Lydia based on her friendship with Alexis; but, both Heather and Tamra deemed her “guilty by association” last week. Their real motive is to pump her for information and see if they can turn her to the darkside because they saw somewhat less than unwavering support of Alexis from her last week. In Lydia’s talking head, she says that Tamra was straight crazy, while Tamra referred to herself as ‘vocal’. Tamra lists off a string of insults about Alexis with Heather backing her up. The super religious Lydia seems to be agreeing in principle. Lydia is trying to be on both teams. Honey, you have to pick your side on “Housewives” it’s war and there is no Switzerland. You are coming off as a bit two-faced. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Recap:

RHOOCTamgetthefuckoutIt’s time for the Real Housewives of Orange County Mean Girl Dinner Smackdown to continue. Gretchen is being just as bad as Tamra clapping her hands and acting like a three year old. Tamra literally has her fingers in her ears now. Sane adult women just do not act this way. Tamra is screaming at Vicki to pick a side. I am so sick of the semantics about whether or not the term bullying is applicable. Now Tamra is threatening to throw Heather out for pointing out Vicki didn’t run after her.

Tamra’s best line so far, “Someone is going to bless this fucking building!”

Lydia sucks at being helpful. Tamra needs a good cunt punting into next Tuesday. Continue reading
