Real Housewives of Orange County: Number of Secrets Revealed? ZERO.

RHOOC Reunion

Let’s be honest. Bravo does this to us every season. We are done. We are so done. But there are some things left unresolved. Surely, the will resolve them. We have hope. Yet resolution never comes. So here we go again. All we really care about seeing at this point is footage of the Marry, Shag Kill game at Heather’s Valentine’s Day party. We would be thrilled to just see one hour of that party completely unedited.

But that will never happen. We’re going to see Tamra insults that landed on the cutting room floor because there were so many. Probably more instances where Vicki and Tamra were uncouth in Bali. Likely, a few pretentious thoughts of Heathers. If we are lucky perhaps a loving scene between Christian and Lizzie.  But we will not be satisfied at the end of an hour. 70% will be recycled crap we have covered a thousand times. But there is always that shred of naïve hope that production will surprise us this one time… Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion Part 2: Bitter? Party of One?

RHOOC Reunion

 

It’s now or never for the RHOOC to get everything all wrapped up for the season. Let’s see if Andy asks any hard-hitting questions.

A viewer essentially asks Shannon if Dr. Moon is fleecing her. Shannon says no, that he has healed her kids by his touch of many things. Um, the way I said that seems wrong. Andy asks her if she is so zen and holistic, why does she seem like a complete stress ball all the time? Shannon says since she came back from Bali she has been much more at peace, and that it is something she continues to work on. She does look happier on the reunion. Vicki is asked if Shannon’s suggestion to feng shui  her office has helped her business. Vicki said yes! She says it went off the charts and continues to go off the charts. Vicki says she just had Elaine come to her home to feng shui it because she believes in it now.  See Vicki? It does work for white people!

Vicki is asked why she was so open to Shannon and so rude to Lizzie, was it because Lizzie is younger? Vicki says she is not threatened by age. There are people older than her and younger than her. She says she connected to Shannon right away and things were a bit awkward with Lizzie. Vicki definitely had a boob job.  The tops of her boobs are nearly to her collarbone. A bra doesn’t do that.

A viewer asks Lizzie when the last time was that Christian threw her over the countertop? Lizzie says that they have a lot of sex now.  Lizzie is going to start trying for a third child in the beginning of next year.  We rehash #birthdaygate .  Tamra’s story for not calling earlier in this iteration is that she was trying to get in touch with her mother to babysit. That’s a new one I think. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion Part 1 Beadors Win!

RHOOC Reunion double shot

The ladies all arrive to the reunion in sweats without a drop of makeup on. They are filmed getting ready for the day. Heather Dubrow gets a haircut with a completely new style while she is preparing to go on national TV. It’s a good thing it came out all right.  Vicki seems confident going in this season, which is a new feeling for her, but Andy will trip her up and let herself paint herself into a corner over a airheaded gay stereotype from the show.  Heather is there for answers. Shannon’s plan is to stay Zen.  Tamra says she never has a problem owning up to what she has done. I can’t decide if I think she believes herself or not.

Vicki’s boobs are ginormous! Are they new? Vicki says she is trying to buy Andales. I just found out that Vicki’s Mexican apartment is a time share.  They actually had three time shares. In the divorce, the each took one and sold the other. Those have to be new boobs. They are way up high.

Lizzie dated Nick Lachey both before and after Jessica Simpson.

Andy asks Shannon about her saving a nation in a past life. She said that her holistic dentist consulted a panel of psychics and that’s what they said. That’s why he put the jewels in her teeth for free. He’s dead now.  Shannon seems happy and at peace. At least for now. Continue reading

Predictions For Tonight’s Orange County Reunion

RHOOC ReunionObserver2 has asked for a spot to discuss what we expect to happen on tonight’s reunion show. Will anyone walk of the set in dramatic fashion only to be hauled back out for the next scene? Will Heather stick up for Tamra or will the entire mob unite against her?  How many times will we hear the word “Brooks” brought up? If we exclude all of the housewives names as possible choices, what should be our drinking word? Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Blog Round Up!

RHOOCVickirainbow

The ladies of Orange County share their final thoughts on each other in their last blogs of the season.

Vicki on her feelings about her cast mates at the end of the season:

Let’s put it this way, although I don’t agree with everything Tamra does, I want the best for her and don’t want us to be fighting. But the truth of the matter is I don’t agree with what she has done. I personally think Tamra steps way too much into people’s business and I’m hopeful that she has learned a lesson. You can’t go around talking crap on people and expect them not to compare notes. As I said — I don’t really care if Tamra likes Brooks or supports our relationship — but I do ask that she keep the bad mouthing to herself.

It was really great getting to know Shannon this year and despite all the drama in her life, it was good to spend time with her one-on-one in Bali. Despite all the issues with her, Tamra, and Heather, I am hopeful that we all can remain friends and “move on” as they say. I think Shannon is a great person, she knows how to have fun, makes her family her top priority, and does whatever she can to make the necessary changes to keep her marriage intact. I’m proud of her.

Looking back this season, I felt bad about how I treated Heather at times. I am proud to call her my friend, and hate that I was part of any of her hurt. Heather definitely seems to manage her career and her four kids without looking too stressed out, which I really admire. She definitely seems to “have it all.”  

Lastly Lizzie — although we started of on a rough note I really have come to like her a lot. She has a spitfire personality and I love a woman to can stand up to Tamra. (Or for that matter even me!) Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Finale: All Apologies…

RHOOCTamraandEddie

 

Wow, Eddie’s acting is improving. See that Hollywood? He is the next Neil Patrick Harris! He can play a believable straight man even though we all know.. that acting is hard.  Tamra’s talking head victim, really? I can’t. Can I just zip through to the end when everything happens? OMG Tamra did fly home by herself, according to her, which no one can believe and there is no evidence of.

Shannon has decided to start going to bed with her husband and it has been a great thing for their relationship. Shannon’s husband David is pretty hot. And rich. He tells Shannon  he will apologize to Heather and Terry.

Heather is conspiring with Tamra against Shannon on the phone.  Tamra is a cunt satchel and Heather just undid everything I started to like about her again in Bali in one bitchy phone conversation.

I really don’t understand guys obsessing over their inch hair. Men with practically shaved heads will obsess. Men with nearly two inches will spend three hours making the bed head look appear just right.   Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE: Are Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers Having a Secret Tryst in Atlanta?

rhoocbrooksvickiBrooks Ayers is gracing the ATL with his presence this weekend! He is in town to visit his oldest son. Brooks was spotted by TamaraTattles.com spies last night at Johnny’s Hideaway!  Those of you in the Atlanta area know that is the perfect place for Brooks. It’s sort of a meat market for the, uh, older set.

Our spy approached Brooks and struck up a bit of conversation. She pointed out that Brooks obviously gets a bad rap on the show. Brooks replied, “It gets better next season.” Now how would he know that?  I can see assuming that Vicki will return next season if indeed there is one. But it seems an interesting response to me. Does he mean to imply that their relationship may move to another level? You know Vicki does tend to need a man living with her at the very least to fill her love tank. And they have talked about it.  Or is Brooks just blowing hot air. We all know he says all kinds of things after a few drinks. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: Everyone is Over Tamra

RHOOC Shannon monkey

 

Shannon is done with Tamra, but holds out hope for a friendship with Heather:

I am not happy that I haven’t had time alone with Tamra. Her bike ride ran long and she was even late for the Balinese dancers. I did my best to initiate a conversation one-on-one with her at the dinner table, but, of course, that didn’t work. Tamra was upset that Lizzie told me things that were said behind my back and questions why Lizzie told me. Tamra never denies saying any of those cruel statements. She doesn’t apologize for them. And I never got an explanation before she stormed away from the table. Clearly I never will. Time to move on and know that Tamra is not my friend. Friends don’t talk behind each other’s backs like that.

It is interesting that I have had some fun moments with Heather on this Bali trip. I thought it would be a nice gesture to pull Heather aside on our last night to thank her for including me on the trip. Heather also extended an olive branch by apologizing for talking about my email to her group of friends. Maybe the tides will turn. . . Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: Eat, Pray, Run.

RHOOC Shannon monkey

And I am going to need someone to tell me who won the pressure challenge on Masterchef. Because without fail something happens on Mondays during Masterchef and I have two shows that tape at 9 and I miss the ending. Please tell me it was Lesley. Thanks.

Love the lobby furniture of this Bali resort. Currently Vicki, Tamra and Heather are sitting there allegedly waiting for the other girls. Tamra is wearing her sunglasses inside. Heather asked her why she is mad at her and she says because she never made fun of Lizzie’s dress. Seriously. Why is #BirthdayGate still a thing? Most women over 25 don’t even want to acknowledge their birthdays.  Heather is dumbfounded because she said it privately to Tamra and Vicki and not in front of Lizzie. Tamra is accusing Heather of being a shit-stirrer. I am constantly amazed at how often Tamra accuses other people of things that she does ALL OF THE TIME!  Tamra is apparently hungover and more bitchy that usual so this whole hiking with monkeys thing should go well.

Shannon, Lizzie and Pam are all dressed appropriately for the outing while Heather is sticking to her chic black and white elegance wardrobe and the Vicki and Tamra are dressed for a shopping trip. Apparently, half the girls were told to dress for a hike and the other half were told to dress for a visit to a temple. Oh production, you scoundrels you. They are all hoping they don’t have to see any poverty, because poor people are so depressing and poorly dressed.

First, they arrive at a temple where they are immediately given beautiful batik fabrics to cover their asses. Vicki and Tamra proceed to denigrate the entire experience by just being themselves. I honestly can’t grasp how Tamra can’t see the beauty she was surrounded by. It’s kind of heartbreaking to think of someone going through life like that. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Orange County Blogs: Shannon and Lizzie…

RHOOC Shannon

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.

Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: Bali Hoes!

RHOOC Bali montage

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

Real Housewives of Orange County Blog Round UP!

RHOOC Tamra Lizzie

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.

Shannon’s Blog

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!
