Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: Pretty Ugly

RHOOC Season 9 Cast


Here we are back in the OC with the Real Housewives of Orange County. Can someone explain why Tamra is saying she wants another baby if her tubes are tied? Does to want to reverse that procedure? Or is this the usual older woman with a fake baby storyline like Luann and Kenya?

David surprises Shannon with an overnight date to the St. Regis. It is there first trip away since they got married. It’s a vacation 15 minutes from home. I predict they don’t make the 24 hour mark. I love Bloody Marys. I love white robes. I love crispy white sheets. But one of these things does not go with the other two.

Later at dinner, David wants Shannon to get a boob lift. Why is this dinner conversation? Why don’t any of these couples know how to make small talk and whisper sweet nothings at dinner? Makeup stories about other couples in the restaurant. Have conversations that put you on the same side of an issue. Be affectionate. Don’t have conversations about major surgeries or problems in the relationship.

David had someone come in and sprinkle some rose petals on the room. Shannon wanted to be drunker before they went to bed. These two are awkward together. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Blog Roundup


Over on the Bravo Blogs for Real Housewives of Orange County, there is already some back and forth between Heather and Shannon. Last week Shannon claimed in her blog that that she didn’t know the spooky party at Tamra’s was a costume party. She also claims that Heather abandoned her and did not introduce when they first walked in. Heather counters this week by saying that it was not a costume party and that she knew Tamra was going to wear goth make-up so due to her blemish issues she added the third eye. She said she texted the whole third eye situation to Shannon. She says that she didn’t ditch Shannon and Shannon just jumped right in the party and started chatting up the other girls. She did say that she should have made the introductions right away instead of waiting.

So, let the drama begin. Clearly Shannon is going to jump into the Vicki and Tamra plot to throw Heather from the train.  Here is what Heather has to say about the most recent episode. By the way, both Shannon and Heather seem frustrated by the editing and lack of back story for some of their behaviors.

Dinner at Shannon’s house was very awkward, for many reasons, but supremely delicious! Shannon is an exceptional cook. What you didn’t see was that Tamra was not being very nice to me from the moment she arrived at the party. She turned her back to me in group conversations, made a few snide remarks and then just walked away. I also felt that Tamra and Vicki were cutting me off every time I tried to speak that evening. This made me especially sensitive and annoyed when Vicki was doing the same thing to Shannon during dinner. Not only is Shannon our hostess, but we are getting to know her, let her speak. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: Heather Makes Me Feel Bad

RHOOC Season 9 Cast

I am trying to get in the recapping mood, but I’m pretty stressed about the weather again tonight. Hopefully this episode will be a fun distraction.  We are back at the dinner party and one minute in and Tamra is already calling Heather “fancy.”  Um hello, Tamra, this show is supposed to be about rich fancy people who live in Orange County. Did you not get the memo? That is why we all tuned in in the first place. Don’t hate Heather for being smarter than you and richer than you, it’s not a good look!

The table talk is actually appropriate for dinner. The pros and cons of working with your spouse. However, things quickly go downhill when Heather tells the table to let Shannon speak. Vicki was interrupting her and immediately asked Heather if she was talking to her and denies interrupting her and then says, “Don’t say that to me ever!” Good grief, Vicki. Let someone else speak. When Heather attempts to share, Vicki and Tamra immediately interrupt and she never finishes the story.

Shannon has a basketball court. Pretty much everyone except Heather plays with the boys. This means Heather will be trashed for not participating. The maid is oddly vacuuming the stairs with company using them. Perhaps due to the broken glass. Tamra and Shannon do huge shots. Tamra lays on the kitchen counter. Shannon loves this. Heather overhears Tamra trash talking her. Heather decides to approach Eddie to tell him that Tamra is claiming that he wants a kid and that if they had a baby it would not be gone 50% of the time. This is stepping over the line, Heather. Continue reading

Tamra Judge Talks About Her Custody Issues

RHOOCTamgetthefuckoutA week or so ago, a story about Tamra Judge and the custody of her minor children hit the tabloids and also ended up on HLN with Nancy Grace weighing in on her ex-husband’s allegations of neglect.  Simon has filed court documents seeking full primary custody of their kids and in his filing he lists numerous examples of neglect. For the most part, commenters sided with Simon.  We saw a bit of his evidence on the Internet that included texts between Sidney and Tamra seemed…inappropriate.

Tamra has opted to use her Bravo blog to throw some gas on the fire share her side of the story. Continue reading

Real Housewives Of Orange County Recap: Meet & Potatoes


We return at the exact point we left off last week because apparently knowing every little detail of Vicki’s relationship with Brooks is everyone’s business. Vicki tells Tamra and Heather that Brooks is part of her happiness and that she loves him. Vicki says they did not talk for two months and they both went to counseling separately and are back together.

Vikki wants to live with Brooks now that she is “one week divorced.” That is sort of sad. Tamra and Vikki are determined to get Heather to act like a lunatic and get drunk but she has an early flight tomorrow to get back to her kids. Oh and she also has decorum, a word the other two should probably look up.

Speaking of words people need to look up, Shannon needs to look up the word ‘cotillion’. It is not a class for children that teaches  etiquette and dance. A cotillion is a formal ball most often for the presentation of debutantes into polite society, or a military formal dance. I suppose the etiquette classes that young girls take have a cotillion component, but I’ve just never heard the word used the way Shannon does. Continue reading

Simon Barney Accuses Tamra Judge of Child Neglect


Photo Credit: Bravo

I just got one of those “turn on your TV!” calls and Tamra Judge is being discussed on Nancy Grace because Simon has filed for custody of all three kids citing child neglect. According to HLN, court documents include charges that Tamra does not provide proper hygiene (dirty underwear, not showered,  hair not washed, bugs in hair, stinks) , food (no nutritious meals, no food in the house) or medical care.  Simon found his young daughter’s hair matted and full of bugs. One of their son’s had a broken bone and was not taken to the doctor, Nancy Grace claims.  Nancy also says the little girl was ill and not taken to the doctor. Continue reading

WWHL With Vicki Gunvalson…

AndyAs we approach hour 14 of this blog shift, I realize that Vicki is on WWHL tonight. Earlier I realized that if I give you the recap a couple days before the show airs, you all forget to go and chat about the show there. Lesson learned. :)

So I am not going to blow-by-blow this show (probably, you know how I usually say that and do it anyway) but apparently when Andy hugged Vicki tonight on first sight, he asked for a better hug, so she gave him one which left a lip print on his jacket. Someone says they have remove it before the show is over so for now that is the big “event”.  I shall now continue to watch for other things of equal or better interest value.

OMG. When I watched the show, I didn’t think Vicki’s cut from surfing was that bad, but she STILL has a scar? Is this a joke? Andy didn’t want to see it but Vicki removed the Band-aids. This has to be a joke the Hawaii trip was the last week in OCTOBER 2013! But they are not acknowledging it to be a joke. How stupid does Bravo think we are? Don’t answer that. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Premiere


I’ve been avoiding doing this post for quite some time. The screener has been mixed in with the gobbledygook that is my office desk (*cough* coffee table *cough*)waiting for me to have a laptop that I can watch the screener on while typing on another. The time has come and there is still this inexplicable resistance. But the time has come to pop the CD in and get on with Season Nine (9!!!!) of the original show that got us all addicted to this mess in the first place.

Vicki, Tamra and Heather are the sole survivors from last season. They will be joined by Shannon Beador, who Bravo PR describes as “quirky” which is nice speak for “batshit crazy” and “the opinionated former beauty queen,” Lizzie Rovsek. There is also a new FOTH, Danielle Gregario who we won’t see until episode three.

Hmm…they are not showing us the new taglines in the screener. Wonder why not? Heather and Terry are building their new house while living like mere mortals on a cul-de-sac of all places! Terry is the biggest divo in the world and simply can’t bear living like commoners. Shannon is introduced to Heather first when Heather goes to look at her home for building ideas. Shannon has three girls, including a set of twins. Shannon did not feel her twins were bonding so she had a DNA test done, to prove they were HERS! I’m not sure Heather and Shannon will get along. Shannon is out there. But I do agree with her cell phone stance. Continue reading

Lydia Stirling McLaughlin QUITS Real HouseWives of Orange County


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

RHOOC Laura Waring-Peterson’s Son Charged With Felony Grand Theft Auto

Remember when Laura Waring-Peterson was sitting on the reunion sofa with Andy showing pictures of Josh and the baby?  She all but admitted he was still doing drugs and yet somehow explained the whole thing without mention both parents have drug issues and CPS has taken the baby, allegedly?  Well, today Josh Waring was just charged with felony grand theft auto.  Continue reading

Please Welcome, Tamra and Eddie Judge!

Why is tonight’s episode showing up as episode 2 on my TV’s description thingy? I thought this was three and the last one. Let’s hope that is a mistake.  Anyhoo, we begin with seating charts and fake scripted crap about Eddie not wanting the other wives there. I mean it’s not like these two didn’t jello wrestly Gretchen and Slade to get the free wedding spin-off.

Are they seriously at a place called Pretty Kitty to get their chuckalina’s waxed? I can see the bride having that done, but is it necessary for the entire wedding party to march down the aisle with puffy chuckys straight from a Brazilian as well?  I have never been asked to wax my floors, so to speak, as part of my wedding party obligations. Though I suppose it’s probably less painful than some other parts of supporting a bridezilla. Thankfully, she has her best gay and some other dude to bear witness. Because, that happened. Continue reading
