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.

Sadly, TamaraTattles.com is the first to investigate the death of Vicki Gunvalson’s children’s half brother Parker Wolfsmith. According to Radar Online,just last month Vicki Gunvalson opened up about her first marriage to Michael Wolfsmith who she married at age 21. Despite a marriage that Vicki has described as abusive, she had her two children with Wolfsmith, Michael Jr. and Briana. Tragically, a son of Wolfsmith’s from a subsequent relationship was killed on May 31. Parker Wolfsmith died at age 14 after being hit by a train. Parker was laid to rest in Kane County Illinois on June 6th.
From Vicki’s Bravo Blog:
“Welcome back this week. Sorry I’ve been skipping a few weeks here and there -– life seems to be too busy to sit down and write anything. Unfortunately, we had a death in the family two weeks ago which rocked all of our worlds. Mike and Briana’s 14-year-old half-brother was killed in a terrible accident in southern Illinois, so please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers. “
This week in RHOOC Bravo Blogs, Shannon is really the only one with anything interesting to say. Shannon gives a very open and frank account of her feelings on Monday night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County ..I think. But there are a few confusing points. Here is what she has to say about her marital struggles:
“This is a tough episode for me to watch. I have been very open about the state of my marriage and how I want more. I want to be on the same team with David — partners in life. I do not think I am a victim and I do not intend to send that message. I am not blaming my husband for distancing himself from me. In fact, today, I take most of the responsibility it is happening. I thought if I complained enough, that something would finally click within David and he would “see the light” and make our relationship a big priority in his life. It really doesn’t make sense that this plan of action would ever get me what I want. You would think that I would have been smarter about things.
David wakes up at 4:30 am every morning so he goes to bed when the kids do, around 8:30 pm. I am a night owl so I usually stay up late at night (and watch my Bravo shows!). Watching the show has knocked sense into me about the clock I need to keep. I am glad that you get to see one of my “A-ha!” moments. It literally hit me in my interview that I need to change my clock as a first step to improving my marriage.”
Well, I’m not sure getting up at 4:30 a,m. is the answer.

It’s already time to return to the OC! Time seems to be flying by. It seems like just last week we were ringing in the new year! So what insignificant issue will the ladies fight about tonight? Will revisit #ChairGate or #BullGate or is it going to be all about Good Day LA?
Vicki and Heather are out at lunch and talking about Tamra’s tendency to stab her friends in the back. Heather’s feelings are hurt over Tamra. Vicki is coming clean about talking about Heather behind her back about Tamra. Vicki admits that she thinks Heather judges people for their bank accounts. Heather is shocked. Vicki seems to feel inferior around Heather. Vicki apologizes to Heather and a new alliance is formed. I was all very mature. Which was very odd.
Lizzie has been asked to judge the Miss Santa Monica USA pageant. Again, another nice light scene. This is scaring me. Lizzie has another scene later with her mother. I like Lizzie, but her scenes are boring. Continue reading
As I found myself wandering over the to RHOOC Bravo blogs, I wondered why I was even bothering. It was a really ridiculous episode full of boring arguments about nothing. All would have been avoided if Tamra would have just said, “Thank you Heather, it was so kind of you to think of Cut Fitness when you landed your talk show gig!” End of episode. Perhaps we could have seen more candy making and Christmas decorations. Maybe they would have talked about and the great food. By the what, Shannon says he original caterer quit two days before the party and she was fortunate to get a great Chef to step in at the last minute.
Heather says in her blog that when she thought about it, she did say something to Tamra about “picking a lane” as in stop being my friend when you are with me, and not my friend when you are with Shannon. Which is quite similar to picking a side, but really who cares. If Tamra is Heather’s friend, she should be Heather’s friend regardless of the company Tamra was with. I think Heather just wanted to tell Tamra not to be two-faced and was trying to speak within the limited vocabulary of Tamra. In the comments everyone is furious with Tamra and supportive of Heather. In both of their comments, people are pointing out the numerous other people Tamra has done this to in previous seasons. Heather is no angel, but Tamra’s track record tells the real story.
