Ooops. I lost track of time while babysitting another thread. So this isn’t going to be a full recap. Or even much of a recap at all. Let’s call it a “random thoughts” post tonight. I find myself saying that a lot about The Real Housewives of Orange County. It’s not that I don’t like the show, there just usually isn’t a whole lot to comment on. We begin, or at least I’m beginning at the Wine for Wives Infomercial. Immediately upon arrival it seems the evil hand of Tamra is already stirring the pot. Everyone is staying in the same building except for Vicki who has been ostracized. Vicki already feels out of place being the only single lady there and now she is not even in the same building with the wives. She gets a little teary-eyed and the evil blonds immediately start to mock her.Tamra does the Adrienne Maloof “Someone is crying!” routine. They must teach them that in Bravo villain school. Terry and Lydia each offer to take Vicki into their room (I am sure Heather will have a fit about that) which I am sure only made Vicki feel worse. Poor Vick. She is not a very emotionally independent person. Continue reading »
Time for the Real Housewives of Orange County again. It seems like the weeks have just been flying by lately. I think it was last week that someone pointed out that my recap was not thorough enough for their liking. That person will probably be disappointed again. I’m probably not going to give a huge blow-by-blow unless something really interesting happens.
Somehow I was a couple minutes behind (must have paused the TV) so when I tune in we have an unlikely trio of Heather, Tamra and Lydia out for lunch. Lydia is talking about her mother, who is very wealthy. so she will be considered eccentric rather than batshit crazy like us commoners. Heather is blathering about not wanting to dislike Lydia based on her friendship with Alexis; but, both Heather and Tamra deemed her “guilty by association” last week. Their real motive is to pump her for information and see if they can turn her to the darkside because they saw somewhat less than unwavering support of Alexis from her last week. In Lydia’s talking head, she says that Tamra was straight crazy, while Tamra referred to herself as ‘vocal’. Tamra lists off a string of insults about Alexis with Heather backing her up. The super religious Lydia seems to be agreeing in principle. Lydia is trying to be on both teams. Honey, you have to pick your side on “Housewives” it’s war and there is no Switzerland. You are coming off as a bit two-faced. Continue reading »
It’s time for the Real Housewives of Orange County Mean Girl Dinner Smackdown to continue. Gretchen is being just as bad as Tamra clapping her hands and acting like a three year old. Tamra literally has her fingers in her ears now. Sane adult women just do not act this way. Tamra is screaming at Vicki to pick a side. I am so sick of the semantics about whether or not the term bullying is applicable. Now Tamra is threatening to throw Heather out for pointing out Vicki didn’t run after her.
Tamra’s best line so far, “Someone is going to bless this fucking building!”
Lydia sucks at being helpful. Tamra needs a good cunt punting into next Tuesday. Continue reading »

Oh Dear Lord, Dr. V’s Dad is the bartender. I can’t wait for him to show up here and tell us how much fun it was. OOOH Dr. V calls Alexis a perpetual victim and a bully in denial. She says that Vicki got surgery because she fears death, Tamra is struggling to figure out when to be aggressive and how to be assertive or something, Dr. V always kisses the ass of the housewife in the chair next to her, last time it was Kyle.(Don’t yell at me Joe, we made up remember?) She wanted to say Tamra is a bitch. Gretchen is in the process of reinventing herself. Tamra has purple pieces in her hair. Did I miss a reason for this? Oh wait! I may have to take that back. Dr. V says that all of those women were bullying Alexis. Tamra takes offense and says that Alexis chose to be there so it can’t be bullying. We go to break with Dr. V trying to illuminate the flaws in that logic.
Someone asked Dr. V her best advice and she said “gratitude”. Tamra literally looked like she did not know what the word meant. So Andy asked her if she had those feeling and she shrugged and said sometimes. I honestly don’t think she knows the word. Continue reading »
As usual, as we watch one season, or as is our current plight THREE seasons, of Housewives, another one, or two, is filming. Yesterday, the entire cast of RHOOC was off on their cast trip. The picture above was taken at LAX and tbefore the cast jetted off toward a colder climate. Last month the ladies filmed in Canada on a weekend trip for Tamra’s bachelorette party. Is she going to get married in Canada?
Is that Alexis Bellino front and center? I don’t pay much attention to Orange County in the off season, but didn’t we just go through the whole “She got fired!”, “No, I didn’t I just couldn’t take another season with you bitches!” twitter war? And now she is back? I’m going to need y’all to give me the tea on this one. Continue reading »
Good news not-so-gentle readers! We are not the only ones on the crack pipe that is Bravo. All this time we have thought we were down here in the gutter alone wondering how the hell our lives got to this point. I posted about my own personal journey into the bowels of hell that is the Real Housewives, likening it to a drug addiction gone off the rails. But today I discovered we are not alone. In fact we have one of the most famous female social critics of our time in our midst. Camille Paglia, the anti-feminist feminist author extraordinaire has a new book, Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars, a collection of essays about art pieces from ancient to modern times. In a recent interview promoting the book with Salon.com which I highly recommend in its entirety, Paglia goes off on a very long dissertation about her love for the Real Housewives with detailed discussions about editing and who her favorite housewives are. You will not believe who she chooses. Or why she says the Real Housewives of New Jersey is better than The Sopranos and Downton Abbey. Or her thoughts on Andy Cohen. You simply must click through and read this all for yourselves. Do it now. Continue reading »
The “ladies” of the Real Housewives of Orange County are still catfighting even though the show isn’t even taping and they have no obligation to speak to each other. It seems to have started with an interview Heather Dubrow gave where she implied that Alexis was fired from RHOOC. It’s true that Alexis is not coming back but she is adamant it was her choice. Rather than just being happy they don’t have to work with Alexis anymore and letting her say she quit, Heather and Tamra want to be sure that everyone knows she was fired. Hell, even Nene Leakes showed more class when Sheree was fired. I rather shocked at Heather’s behavior. Click through to see the twitter exchange. Continue reading »
It seems that the Bravo production staff could not get a marriage deal worked out with Gretchen and Slade or Tamra and Eddie (do I have them paired off correctly, y’all know I can’t tell those two blondes apart) for the upcoming season. Whatever will they do with the whole Bora Bora storyline they had all planned out? Apparently the answer is a vow renewal on RHOBH between Lisa and Ken! I can only imagine the extravaganza that was. I certainly hope Kevin Lee was involved. As we heard, Adrienne Maloof eventually showed up for the tail end of the reception. Perhaps a celebration of 30 years of marriage was too much for her given her own marital issues. At any rate, the trip to the Bora Bora Four Seasons went to Lisa and Ken.
Speaking of Adrienne, today is not only her birthday, but RadarOnline is reporting that she is in court with Paul today over custody issues with their sons. Seems kind of early for emergency court procedures but ,according to ROL, Paul took her to court Friday on an emergency filing and the judge said he could not fit them in until today. Things are getting ugly already.
For the Teresa fans who thought she looked great in her monokini, this is what looking great looks like. I’d kill to look like that at Lisa’s age. Or now for that matter. Thoughts?
