Last night was a big celebration of ten years of the Real Housewives of Orange County and the media photos released today are very interesting.  The event took place as popular club, Boulevard3 in LA and fourteen housewives were in attendance : Vicki Gunvalson, Heather Dubrow, Shannon Beador, Meghan King Edmonds and newest housewife Kelly Dodd; along with housewives from past seasons:  Jeana Keough, Lauri Peterson, Jo De La Rosa, Tammy Knickerbocker, Lynne Curtin, Alexis Bellino, Peggy Tanous, Lydia McLaughlin and Lizzie Rovsek. Glaringingly absent? Gretchen Rossi. This seems interesting to me because she would walk ten miles across glass to be there. But if she was, she was not acknowledged in the press for the event and no photos of her at the press site.

Vicki Gulvason, it seems, wants you to know that you can’t have her Orange unless you pry it out of her cold, dead hands. The only other photo posted with an orange was one of Vicki, Jeanna Keough, Lauri Peterson and  JoDe La Rosa, as a tribute to RHOOC season one.  Vicki was by far the most photographed and has several photos with  producers.

I barely remember Lynne Curtain, and that was mosty because of her daughters, and I am not sure I even watched Peggy Tanous and Tammy Knickerbocker’s season(s?), they are an interesting trio of women aging without a lot of physician interaction and dressing without stylists. Lauri Peterson was still wearing her wedding band. #OldSchoolRHOOC

Lizzie Rovsek, whom I love, seems to have over done her face, I barely recognize her. It could be that she has lost too much weight. Lydia McLaughlin, Alexis Bellino, and Jo De la Rosa all looked amazing.

I forgot to mention Tamra and Eddie were not there because they were off somewhere celebrating their 3rd anniversary. Oh and she hates Vicki again. That didn’t last long.

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

Lydia Stirling McLaughlin QUITS Real HouseWives of Orange County

RHOOClydia

This makes me so sad.  I think it may have something to do with how her mother was treated.  But according to USWeekly,  Lydia has quit RHOOC!  The rumor mill has it that Alexis and Gretchen were fired for lack of storyline. So, RHOOC will have a major shakeup.  Only Vicki, Tamra and Heather are still standing. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Secrets Revealed

RHOOCreunioncastIt’s been yet another rainy weekend in ATL which makes me much more likely to nap, than blog. But the sun is on for now, so let’s see if the clip show of Real Housewives of Orange County had any good moments. I am not expecting much.

I have seen all of this on the reunion, so far. Have I already seen this show? Maybe a first look?  Lydia was a virgin when she got married. But do we need fifteen minutes of discussion about it?  Heather comes by the stick up her ass through DNA. Continue reading

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.
