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
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
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
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
Observer2 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
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
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

Brooks 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
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
