We haven’t heard a whole lot from the Real Housewives of Orange County in the press lately, but what little they do talk about usually includes a sort of apology for how boring this season has been so far. The promise it will get better. ONCE THEY GET TO ICELAND. Please let that be next week. If you missed the latest catastrophe in real life with Shannon Beador click here.
Now let’s see what fresh hell the ladies have for us tonight. I’ll take anything other than the usual tedium of this season. This is episode nine, and I still feel like I am waiting for the season to start. God I hate these taglines. Have I mentioned that?
After Kelly and Shannon hugged it out on Saint Patrick’s day, Shannon called Kelly to hang out with her again the next night. Apparently, this happened in real life with no cameras around. Kelly is out shopping for nursery furniture with Meghan as she relates the story. Kelly claims that Shannon showed up to the bar where she was out with friends and had her phone set to record. Neither of them have a clue what she was after. I have no clue why Meghan is shopping for nursery furniture after the baby has already arrived. I suppose it is because her real nursery is in Saint Louis. Click the link to see her round crib under a giant chandelier. She seems clueless as a mother. Kelly told Meghan she will speak to Shannon herself about the alleged recording incident.
Yet another tacky scene where Diko and whatshername list how much they spend on luxury items.
Meghan of course ran straight to Shannon with the allegations about recording Kelly. Shannon got in touch with Kelly and denied recording her. Kelly is not more pissed at Meghan for blabbing than she is at Shannon. She gives Shannon a pass. Meghan says that she couldn’t help herself and apologizes to Kelly, but Kelly now realizes she can’t trust Meghan. Kelly, darling, you can’t trust any of these bitches.
Meghan and Vicki got to lunch. Meghan wants to put her Nancy Drew hat back on and mine Vicki for intel for Tamra and Shannon. Meghan wants to get to the bottom of the drama between Vicki and Tamra. Um, hello all of last season. Why are we doing this again. Vicki swears she was not in on Brooks fake cancer. She also pointed out that scammers benefit from the scam and Vicki did not. She was hurt by it. So she’s a victim. Actually, I don’t think Brooks benefited from the cancer story either, so what was the point? Meghan says that Vicki got tons of attention and sympathy out of it. Um, noe. She spent the whole cancer season crying because Brooks had cancer and no one cared enough to even drop off a casserole.
As for the Eddie is gay rumor, Vicki said she only asked Kelly if she had heard the rumor, and she had, so had the entire Internet where Vicki read it. She never intended for that conversation to get back to Tamra and she never meant to hurt her. Meghan smirks. Vicki says she probably should not have told Kelly about David’s domestic violence, but she has the receipts to back up what she said. Meghan wants Vicki to share those receipts with Shannon. Vicki begs Meghan not to tell Shannon. Meghan has accomplished her mission to get more leverage with Shannon.
Meghan wastes no time in calling Shannon to tattle on Vicki. She calls her while Shannon and Tamra are shopping for cross dressing costumes for a drag bingo charity event that Shannon is supposedly inviting everyone to. When Meghan says Vicki has the receipts she says that they faked a ton of cancer documents so she doesn’t want to see any texts they have. They flash back to a reunion scene of Shannon clearly lying about a fight between David and her. I think the domestic violence was very early in the marriage.So this is a separate incident where Shannon claims she doesn’t remember because someone slipped drugs in her drink. Shannon continuing this storyline against David is despicable. Even thought it is true. If Shannon has a prayer of keeping her marriage together she needs to refuse to discuss this topic entirely.
Vicki wants to buy another boat to replace the one she lost in the divorce with Don. She wants to co-own it with Steve. Because she has not learned a thing. In real time news, Vicki recently announced on Instagram that Ryan has finally been discharged from the military. Vicki seems to be dying for a proposal from Steve.
Everyone except Vicki and Peggy are going to drag bingo. Shannon looks exactly like Brett Michaels. Meghan gets into drag at the venue while pumping her breasts. Lydia is very uncomfortable at the drag show. Tamra’s psychic is in the club. He’s there to talk crap about Vicki and he focuses that agenda on Kelly.
Lydia gets bingo and Shannon takes up her winning card. This means Shannon gets the spanking by the drag queen. Shannon seemed to like it. Later the fight between Meghan and Kelly that MEGHAN started by accusing Kelly of having a boyfriend resurfaces. Lydia has had all she can take, so she quietly dips out. Bless her heart for going along with the script as long as she did, she was clearly uncomfortable at the drag bar. Actually, she goes to hide in the bathroom. Kelly talks about Meghan being the shit stirrer. She goes off on Meghan and says she shouldn’t have time to be stirring up the pot with a small child at home. She suggests Meghan focus on her kid more than she focuses on her and Vicki. Meghan cries in the bathroom. Lydia and Kelly buddy up. Meghan leaves.
Next week: At Vicki’s birthday party, an eyewitness to Eddie making out with another guy shows up. And so does Gretchen Rossi.
