Lizzie Rovsek seems to really regret signing up for Real Housewives of Orange County. After Tamra Judge publicizing her phone number on her Facebook, Lizzie had to get a new phone number. Below are three Facebook comments from Lizzie from the time of the incident (thanks Courtney!) And here is what she had to say today, “It’s important to stand up for what’s right. Everyone has a limit with how much they can or will put up with. We are all human. Amidst the hundreds of calls & texts flooding my phone yesterday, the silver lining was how sweet, supportive & kind all the messages were. My family is my life and anything directed towards my children or my family is way below the belt. Today I will continue to cultivate kindness, love my friends & family, and continue to stand up for what is right. Wishing everyone an awesome day #meanpeoplesuck“
I’m thinking Bravo is none to thrilled with Tamra. Filming is over and the evil bitch crap cannot be for the show. So what is Tamra’s excuse now? Click through for the FB page comments. Continue reading
This picture does not give an accurate account of what Tamra’s face looks like.
The emails are flooding in about a story just published on another website about Tamra getting fired. Everyone is asking me if it is true. So, I thought I would type my response here and just link everyone. Bravo sends out their pick up letters after the reunion episodes air. In these letters, the wives are either offered a contract for the upcoming season, or thanked for their services and given best wishes for future endeavors. The reunion has not aired yet, ergo, pickup letters have not been sent. No one know yet who is coming back. Bravos decisions have not been made. So my answer is, “I don’t know.”
HOWEVER, the fact that they include a scene of Tamra Judge screaming at everyone, including production about never seeing her again is tantamount to her quitting. While I am sure once she sobered up, she made up with production and worked out her contract, that would not sit well with Bravo. You sign up to be mocked and humiliated until the filming season closes. So strike one. Continue reading
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!
UPDATE: At some point last night Lizzie and Tamra went head to head over the whole #BirthdayPartyGate. Tamra tried to prove her point by posting a text (that I am told was about Heather’s Valentine’s party not Lizzie’s birthday) and Tamra’s screen grab of the text included Lizzie’s private cell phone number. Then Tamra’s Facebook page was either shut down by Facebook, or shut down by Tamra in a drunken rage. I’m sort of pissed I missed all that. Someone tipped me off, but I had too much other stuff going on.
Short version: Tamra has had a psychotic break and needs a Waaaaahmbulance. Shannon must be laughing hysterically.
Here was her meltdown about #BirthdayPartyGate part One. 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
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.
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

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

It’s time for the Real Housewives of Orange County blog round-up! Heather’s blog was short and the only interesting thing is that she is worried that people will judge her for hiring a chef to add to her staff. She basically tells people to get over it, she can afford it and it frees her up to act and spend time with the kids. I say, more power to her. Vicki sounds very happy and it planning to go to Oklahoma next week for Brianna’s C-section.
Lizzie defends her relationship with Heather, and is grateful to have an ally in her since she’s the new girl on the show. She says when she saw the episode with Heather throwing Shannon out she felt badly for Shannon and thought Heather was wrong. She likes them both. Preston turns four on the 4th and I share her plans for that momentous day below.
Shannon’s blog is the most interesting as she is struggling with multiple conflicts. Tamra has yet to blog. As usual.
So settle for the best parts of the blogs and make lots of comments! I am totally distracted by Big Brother. I am trying not to be, but it’s my happy place! Continue reading
We begin with Shannon and David getting ready to go to Mexico. Shannon is still freaked out by the email David sent her. But David is being extra affectionate with Shannon.
Every time they switch back and forth between Shannon and Heather I am struck by how similar they are. At Heather’s house she has hired a private chef to cook their dinners because Heather can’t cook. They guy is roasting a chicken. This is the easiest thing in the world to cook. Heather should be able to do this. There is basically five minutes of prep, pop the bird in the oven. Take a 1.5 hour nap and get up and eat it. The chef is cooking two meals a night. One for the kids and another afterward for whatever adults are around. Tonight, Terry is working late or something so she had rented a friend to gossip with about Shannon. Heather’s kids eat vegetables and love everything they were served. Continue reading
FULL DISCLAIMER: I have been drinking Champs as Heather would say for a bit now, but I am here to solider on with you. And by the way, thanks for being her with me the past year. xoxo
Anyway, moving on. This one is sure to be full of typos. I hope I don’t have to spell sequins on the fly…
Oh wait I am so not in the mood for this. I’m celebrating! And Shannon is still crying with Tamra. Shannon gets a text from David. It says that Heather was sitting at a table with a bunch of women discussing the separation email. How would David know that? Where the hell is David? This is contrived drama.
Oh speaking of contrived, it’s Vicki talking on the phone to Brooks. Brooks is really, really busy and “working” and shit. Vicki and Brooks are going to Mexico with Shannon and David. Because, that is what the script says. Speaking of Mexico, did you see that match today! Amazeballs! Shout out to #4 Little Bit and #14 Chicaritos! Meanwhile, lots of passive aggressive bullshit between David and Shannon in front of the girls. Production then sends the girls to play “Skunk in the Barnyard.” I dunno it’s some sort of elimination game…#foreshadowing. Shannnon says there are rumors in Newport Beach that David is leaving her. #Bullshit #Storyline Oh and she now has to confront Heather over this.
This show is harshing my mellow. I didn’t buy champagne for it to be a downer. I’ve been contemplating ending the recap for awhile now. #negativity.
Shannon asks Heather who told her about the email. Was this on TMZ or something? I don’t think so. Shannon Beador was an unknown at the time. Heather evades the question and tries to flip things back on Shannon. Heather is on the attack. Shannon just wants to know if she was told about the email. Heather says, you are talking about Tamra. Heather says that Tamra says she is drinking too much and has marital problems. Heather says she doesn’t owe her any sort of explanation. Heather says they are not friends. Really Heather, I thought y’all hugged it out? Anyway, Shannon is losing it an d says what she is doing is hurtful to her children. Heather will not admit Tamra told her about the email. BTW Terry is looking on creepily in the background. Heather throws Shannon out. Terry comes into the room. Terry says “That doesn’t feel good” Heather claims it is all misplaced aggression.
