Every version of this photo is stretched vertically. No good reunion photos exist.
I’m getting a late start because I have been working on a RHONY post all damn day and y’all probably won’t even find it that interesting. (Though I hope you do.) I think I might be subconsciously procrastinating to avoid recapping this crap. I’m going to try be invested in this post. I doubt I will be swayed away from Vicki’s side at this point. These women are just way over invested in hurting Vicki.
We started with some gross enema crap, then moved on to Heather has a great big house. I was bored and started doing some back end work and forgot I was supposed to be recapping right up until the part where Heather says she has two frozen totsicles. AKA fertilized eggs that they are not going to use. Andy immediately wants to buy them. They are Jewish totsicles and they have a doctor for a daddy. I have not doubt that Andy is serious as a heart attack. I imagine good Jewish eggs are hard to find. I’m serious.
Right after the first break we return with Jim Edmonds on the couch sitting right new to his special friend Andrew. He looks very nervous. Andy makes a joke about how in all of his years as a Cardinals fan, he never expected to see him on a reunion couch. Well, he is an idiot then, because this is the second wife Jim has tried to get on RHOOC and he seemed hell bent to keep on marrying women until Andy found one he liked. What a different season we would have had if the original baseball player had not had an ill-timed drug relapse and Jim got called up from the bench with that shrew he married in the third round draft pick.

I’ve been having trouble finding the time to watch this whole interview but it really is worth your time if you can. I started recapping a bit after the first 23 minutes because I watched that a few days ago. Below are some highlights.
Brooks is very calm and talks about how Tamra made it clear after the reunion last season that she was going to stick it to Vicki and make sure that she got the crap edit this season.
Brooks says that this has been hard on him. But mostly it was hard on his family and friends and his parents. Brooks has four kids ages 24, 21, 16 and 7. He says the oldest two know that it is just a TV show and that they only show a tiny sliver of what is going ont.
Brooks was asked if he regretted being on this season. He said he tries not to have regrets. Brooks says that halfway through filming he became the support system for Vicki coping with the loss of her mother. He was glad he was there for that.
Brooks says he split from Vicki because of the show, and because of the internal family conflict with Brianna. He says that she judged him before they even met based on a blog written by his ex and refused to meet him for an entire year of them dating. He says the first time he met Brianna was the night she eloped with Ryan. He says he felt like she only met him to cushion the blow from her elopement. Continue reading
Shannon and David At USC Game 10/24/15
USC alum and avid Trojans fan, Shannon Beador, and her husband went to yet another football game yesterday where her beloved Trojans rolled over the Utes with a 42 to 24 win. But it wasn’t all fun and games ant the La Coliseum when David’s former mistress, Nicole McMacklin and Shannon had a clash of their own. According to reports Nicole was “trying to get their attention” by walking right by them! How dare she? Rather than keep her seat, it seems that Shannon and Nicole somehow found themselves bumping into each other in the tunnel and they both apparently made a hot dog run or took a bathroom break at the same time. No word on where exactly David was at the time this occurred. I’d put my money on trying to hid under his very expensive alumni seat. Note how far away he is seated from Shannon.
According to US Weekly…
“That’s when Shannon calmly said to Nicole, ‘You have a lot of nerve being here,’” the insider says, claiming that Nicole responded by putting her face “two inches from Shannon’s face” and screaming, “F—k you!”
“Shannon followed with an, ‘Are you kidding me?’ to which Nicole replied, ‘You’re sick and you’re crazy,’” the eyewitness continues, saying that Shannon responded with, “Why are you describing yourself to me?” Shannon then yelled up to the entire section where McMackin was seated, “NICOLE is the woman who had an affair with my husband!” the eyewitness recalls.
While the “anon sources” of some tabloids can be a bit suspect. I can totally see Shannon grasping for a comeback and coming up with essentially, “I know you are but what am I?” Not to side with the homewrecker or anything, but Shannon has proven in recent months not to be the fun, quirky, mildly unstable housewife that we loved in her first season. I’d say sick and crazy pretty much hits the nail on the head. I can literally see her standing up at the seats where she will be sitting for the foreseeable future ever season next to her invite guests screaming at a crown of 93, 607 football fans Continue reading
I debated whether to post this information or not. After many of you sent my copies of Sidney’s Facebook post, and wanted to discuss it, and after several major sites carried the story, I decided it was already out there and if you guys want to talk about it we can.
When all of this drama started two years ago, I gave Tamra Judge the benefit of the doubt. If we all think back to the horrible teenaged years, I think we will all have some regrets about our conversations with our own mothers. I certainly would not want mine replayed on the Internet. Teenaged girls can be awful in their rebellion stage and I assumed that was pretty much what was going on.
I have since changed my mind. The cause of my loss of sympathy for Tamra came when she engaged in a very public Twitter war with her daughter and he daughter was clearly the mature party in the situation constantly begging her mother to get off the Internet and discuss the situation in their regular counseling session. Tamra was not having it and sort of went in on Simon blaming him.
After the last reunion episode where Tamra went on and on about missing Sidney and wanting to spend time with her daughter, Sidney decided she need to add some truth to Tamra’s version of events. Continue reading
We’re BFFs now
Shannon Beador needs to learn not to video every single one of her drunken moments and publish them to the Internet. Shannon says in THIS ONE that she and Tamra are on the way back from doing Heather Dubrow’s first PodCast , Heather’s World, in L.A. that will premiere on November third after the final reunion episode. Tamra literally passes out on camera and Shannon continues to talk to her anyway. Shannon is so drunk she can’t read the incoming questions. She keeps waking Tamra up hoping she will read the screen for her. Shannon says don’t get too excited for the second episode because they are just teasing everything for the third part of the reunion. She says that on the podcast they all agree on what they saw and heard and it’s not good. Shannon is slurring her words and chewing with her mouth open while saying she is not drunk. Tamra keeps trying to get Shannon to stop talking and let her sleep because she has to work out at 5 am to work out. I’m not familiar with Jack in the Box Breakfast Jack but I presume since the woman who won’t eat anything that is not organic is going to town on one they must be organic and gluten free and blessed by monks and shit, right?

E! News has an interview with Brooks Ayers that they have been releasing in dribs and drabs all week. In part Brooks says that Tamra never seemed to doubt that he had cancer until Meghan started making it an issue and it became a storyline. Tamra gave an exclusive interview, excerpted below, where she denies changing her mind about the authenticity of the CT scan report to go along with the rest of the coven.
Tamra gave her response to The Real Mr. Housewife “To say that I changed my mind about the scan for a ‘story line’ is absolutely false. There was no big conspiracy or ‘fake story line’ as Brooks is claiming. All the ladies noticed that Brooks and Vicki’s stories about his cancer were not adding up! It absolutely became a topic of conversation especially after Scott Cruz (the fake psychic giving his one and only psychic reading after being a physical trainer or some other fake job on previous seasons) told us he felt it was all wishy washy and didn’t see it.’”
Tamra goes on to tell The Real Mr. Housewife that when she took the news of the CT results back to the coven, medical expert number one, Shannon Beador immediately ruled that “no doctor would accept an illegible report.” How did Shannon know that the words ran together if she didn’t see the scan? Tamra was too illiterate to even notice when she looked at the report. Future Oncologist of America coven representative, Meghan Edmonds announced that the doctor Brooks uses doesn’t treat cancer or do CT scans. Which is odd because she didn’t even see the report herself. Tamra says Vicki and Brooks stories were not adding up. But this crack team of investigators stories makes sense to someone?
