So far this week, the only OC housewives to put up a blog are Shannon and Lizzie. Shannon seems like she really enjoyed her time with Vicki on the trip. I’m glad so far she is enjoying the trip and staying out of most of the conflicts. Lizzie on the other hand is absolutely furious with Tamra, both in real time and on the episode. Her blog was super long and sort of repetitive. But if you make it all the way to the end, there is a game for us to play!
Shannon’s blog highlights:
I never thought I would ever travel 25 hours to get to any destination! Life is full of surprises — welcome to Bali!
I always have a great time with Vicki, and the time flew by with my travel partner! When she and I saw the kayak on our first day at the beach, there was no question that we would take it out. We came across a small, unoccupied boat and I dared Vicki to climb onboard. Of course, she took the dare! As she was stepping into the boat, she lost her balance and we tipped over. My hat was drenched, the cocktails were spilled, and we couldn’t seem to climb back into the kayak. What you didn’t see was a local man swam up and helped us after 20 minutes of struggling! What a crazy fun morning!
That night, dinner was a little boring. I was actually considering trying to push Vicki in the water to spice things up! I excused myself to use the restroom and scout out the water and when I returned, there was a lot of yelling going on between Lizzie and Tamra. For once, it was not something about me!
I told Vicki and Tamra that I would go up to their room and meet them when they left. As I was getting ready to go, Lizzie and Danielle apologized to me. I was a bit taken aback, but they said that they had misjudged me largely based on statements made by Tamra. I was floored when Lizzie told me Tamra had told everyone on the trip about the “confidential” email. After her apology, the last thing I thought she would do was betray me with others. I don’t understand why Tamra is saying such damaging and false statements about my character, and I want to get down to the bottom of it.
Heather is running through the plane while people are trying to sleep being a rude asshole on a commercial flight. I thought she was supposed to be the well-mannered one. I would have expected it from Tamra or Vicki, but come on Heather. Act like you have been on a plane before.
Oh there this the Vicki we have all forgotten about getting in the driver’s seat of the van to turn on the air conditioning and blowing the horn and Woo Hooing. I am starting to remember how painful it is to watch these stupid housewives, from any franchise travel internationally. I would so love it if Vicki was arrested. Or any of them. They all really need a few lessons in travel. This is why I sew Canadian flags on bags when I travel overseas. I an Canookian. I live in a hoose in Toronto., um y’all.
And five minutes out of the airport, the girls are whiney and insulting to the country. Don’t worry Tamra dear, you will only have to suffer through the native peons for a short while and soon you will be behind a gated wall and it will seem just like Orange County again. If there is a St. Regis in Bali, I am sure you will be there on your free international vacation in business class. Try to bear up a few more moments and just close your eyes to avoid seeing the world.
Wow, St. Regis this is not. This place is amazing!
I swear I am going to have to fast forward. Vicki and Tamra neither one know what a mousse is. That said, I am not sure the poor waiter does either because it’s on a stick. My guess is it’s a chicken ballotine stuffed with prawn mousse. Heavy sigh. Whatever it was they refuse to eat it. My blood pressure is seriously shooting through the roof. If you want to torture me until I kill stuff, make me watch a loop of American idiots vacationing in foreign countries looking for the McDonald’s. I’m literally doing my deep breathing techniques and we aren’t even to the main course. All I can think of is I hope gratuity is included.
Shannon is disappointed that the kayak does not come with a drink holder. My god that pool is to die for, and I am not even a pool person. I want Lizzie’s sun glasses. Vicki and Shannon seemed to actually enjoy the kayak right despite themselves. Continue reading
This is Lizzie’s response to Tamra’s apology.
Tamra Judge Has apologized to
Lizzie RumorFix’s Real Mr. Housewife for posting Lizzie’s cell phone number on her Facebook page. Tamra’s actions appear to have lead to Lizzie wanting to leave the Real Housewives of Orange County. Tamara told Real Mr. Housewife exclusively, “I feel horrible and very sorry that it happened. I even tried to call her immediately to let her know. It was never my intention to expose Lizzie’s phone number and it was deleted in seconds after I realized her number was attached. I had deleted Lizzie number after the reunion. Therefore her previous text messages came up by her phone number. I was so upset at her tweets and leaked stories about me I wanted to prove she knew I was asked to wait. It is normal for us to wait in order to capture our true response on camera. When things happen off camera it’s hard to explain to audience what happened. I am truly sorry.” Continue reading
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
