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.
Heather and Terry and Tamra and Eddie go to an ugly holiday sweater party for charity. It’s being held by Danielle Gregorio, the newest housewife. We also get a chance to meet Danielle’s friend, Lizzie Rovsek who falls and busts her ass as soon as she gets to the party. I already hate Lizzie. Tamra just can’t stand the whole ugly sweater concept. She is not going to like Heather and Terry’s cute matching black Christmas sweaters. Heather and Terry’s sweaters are only ugly because it looks like someone has added a weird collar to a nice sweater that will be taken off later. They end up winning the couples contest.
Things are going fine with Heather and Tamra as they talk to the other two girls. Until Heather says, “It’s funny how kids become an amalgam of the two of you.” The earth stops rotating because Tamra has a limited vocabulary. Again, this is Heather’s fault. Heather quickly tries a synonym “melding.” Nope. I mean seriously how much must Heather struggle to have a conversation with Tamra. I just could not be bothered. What is the payoff for dumbing yourself down for something who has nothing intelligent to contribute to random party conversation?
Vicki and Brooks have their first on camera date of the season. Why oh why does Vicki have to bring up Brianna before the appetizers even arrive? Just enjoy your man. Be in the moment. Let the other stuff go!
Lizzie and Christian have been married for four years and have two boys 3 and 2. Lizzie is a pageant queen who wanted to be an actress. Lizzie has a clothing line, mainly swimsuits. Before you judge, she actually has a fashion degree and sketches her own designs. She’s intelligent, and still quirky.
Tamra and Eddie go to dinner leaving the children at home to starve to death. Tamra says they are in the fitness center all the time and never have time alone. Tamra talks to Eddie about wanting another child. Eddie doesn’t want a kid. He says he doesn’t have time to raise a kid. Which makes one wonder who is raising the ones Tamra already has. Again, can’t anyone have decent conversations. Eddie says she is talking about life time commitments. Um, hasn’t he already made a lifetime commitment?
