So I just read through all the RHOOC blogs and was unimpressed by them. Shannon’s blog is all about her therapy and how they decided to do it on camera to help others in similar situations. Heather’s is all about how hard it is to build a ginormous mansion. Vicki’s is a Q & A about her relationship with Brooks. She seems to be finally setting limits with Brianna. Meghan’s is a vapid as you would expect. She referred to how cute she looked a couple times. So I settled on Tamra’s which was the most interesting. She is loving life as a “Tam-ma” not just to the new baby who is four months old now, but to the babies three step sisters as well. It seems she really has a great relationship with her daughter in law now. Continue reading
It’s time for the premiere of Season Ten of Real Housewives of Orange County. So much of our lives wasted watching this nonsense, but I can’t look away.
We start with Heather in the kitchen with her kids making breakfast. Her youngest daughter who looks to be about 4 or five has a pacifier. Heather tells her to take it out because she is not in bed anymore. She refuses and Heather does nothing. I see an orthodontics bill and a shrink bill in that one’s future. Heather goes right into how fine she is at the huge rental house they live in. Pretentiousness already as they ride out to new house that has like 50 foot ceiling in the foyer and a porte cochere which is apparently a new word for them that describes essentially a driveway that goes through a structure to an interior courtyard. Which is not what they have. They have a canopy structure outside their front door that cars can drive under to avoid the elements when entering or leaving. I hate these people again in the very first scene. I can’t deal with another season of NOTICE ME! NOTICE ME! I AM RICH! I’d love to just see their houses without all the constant bragging. Heather is exhausted by purchasing seven thousand dollar sinks for her beauty salon.
At the :40 Heather tells us she has 14 bathrooms in her house. I would be so embarrassed to say that on TV. Especially in California where water is at such a premium.
Vicki goes to meet Shannon for dinner. Shannon is already discussing her new yeast free diet. She doesn’t do salad dressing because it has vinegar. Um, vinegar is super good for you. What does vinegar have to do with yeast. Vicki says that Brooks just moved into the house with her. Shannon says she is glad for her. Brianna is pisssed about it. I don’t care. Brianna needs to put a sock in it. Both Vicki and Shannon look lovely. Especially, Vicki. Vicki says something about how Shannon and David are doing so well now, and Shannon looks like she is hiding something.
Tamra is getting new boobs. Again. Eddie looks terrible. What has she done to him. Tamra is now close with her new daughter-in-law, Sarah. Sarah is almost ready to have the baby. Tamra’s face looks different. She is not wearing much make-up, so that could be it. Tamra claims she learned last season to think twice before she speaks. She says she is going to tell people what they want to hear, “Life is beautiful and my breasts are real.” Tamara says she is not going to share herself with anyone this season.
We get to see Tamra get new boobs. She is upset that none of her “friends” are there for this momentous occasion. Tamra is setting up a lonely victim storyline and I hate it.
Tamra is having a baby shower for herself. Um I mean he daughter in law. It’s a country theme replete with hay bales. Her mom is there and so is her ex, Ryan’s dad. Lynn Curtain also shows up. Continue reading
It’s time to get ready for Season 10 of the Real Housewives of Orange County. I was thinking the other night that on Real Housewives of New York this season, I really don’t feel very strongly one way or the other about anyone on the show this season. I’m not a fan or any of them, I’m not a detractor of any of them. Some weeks I find one or two more interesting than the others. Other weeks I find myself on the other side of the argument. I’m not sure if that makes for a good season or not. We shall see.
The upcoming season of the Real Housewives of Orange County is a whole nuther ball of wax. I like Vicki (& Brooks) and Shannon (& David)and I cannot stand Tamra Barney. Heather Dubrow is more likely to draw my disdain than my appreciation. But this new woman, Meghan King Edmonds I already despise. I may hate her more than Tamra Judge and I’ve only seen a few seconds of her.
Meghan is a 30-year-old married to a 44-year-old former baseball player. She takes every opportunity to mention that she was not looking to marry a professional athlete. I guess his dick just sort of fell into her. They were engaged while he was still legally married and married nine months after his second divorce was final. The husband, Jim Edmonds has four kids including a 17-year-old daughter. Meghan pointed out recently that her 17-year-ol stepdaughter’s mother is “dying of cancer.” That would be Jim’s first wife. It made my blood boil to see this shameless hussy talking about the mother of her husband’s children in such a negative manner regardless of the nature of her diagnosis. Continue reading
Did Tamra just get baptized? Seriously, was that her? Who died in Vicki’s family? I only know about the baseball players changing in and out. If you can catch me up to speed without mentioning other places. That would be groovy. Now, if you don’t mind. I am back on my mini vacation watching the Mad Men marathon…
It’s almost like being at the beach but not really.
Vicki posted on Instagram, last night, ” Tonight I received a phone call that is every person’s worst nightmare. My amazing, beautiful and strong mother passed on and is now with the love of her life my father in heaven. I am who I am today, because of her. An amazing cook, organized, bold personality and had a sense of style and fashion that I adored. I miss you so much mommy! My life will never be the same without you to give me advice and your wisdom. You were so healthy and so vibrant and so beautiful. I still need you. I love you MOM. Continue reading
Meghan King Edmonds’ Twitter is full of cuteness.
I’m really not sure I am ready to even acknowledge RHOOC yet, but the time for filming is already here. Sadly, everyone is coming back. I was really hoping Tamra Judge would not be back. I am also over Heather DuBrow. I am glad Vicki Gunvalson, Shannon Beador, and Lizzie Rovsek will return.
The Orange County franchise has also added two new women for Season Ten. Both are married to professional baseball players. One looks like fun, and the other? I don’t know much about her except for a picture, and that is enough for me to suspect that the crazy is strong. Continue reading
Vicki Gunvalson is the last remaining original housewife and she has no plans to leave the Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki gave an exclusive interview to US Weekly and caught us up on what is going on in her life.
The most shocking news from the interview is that Bravo threatened to demote her if she refused to continue filming with Brooks Ayers. Vicki and Brooks are back together and she has been supporting him through his fight with cancer. The Real Housewives of Orange County, perhaps more than any other franchise love a controversial partner. In fact, Shannon Beador’s husband is pretty much the most laid back male on the show. All of the others are pretty polarizing. Frankly, I’ve always liked Brooks. He’s a good ole Mississippi boy that I think is often misunderstood by the Orange Country crowd. Continue reading
