So much for that big kumbaya at the end of the Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion. On Tuesday, Vicki gave an interview about the current status of her relationships with her castmates to USWeekly.
She spoke highly of her friendships with Peggy and Lydia (both of whom, I believe are out for next season) calling them true friends that have her back. I doubt they will stay in touch if they are not on the show. Sometimes I wonder if these people have actual friends that are not on the show. I do see Vicki out with regular people on her Instagram, but the others not so much.
But it was her comments about Meghan that were the most interesting. Vicki went in on her and even pointed out what I’ve been saying all along. Meghan is not from Orange County and doesn’t live there. The only reason she is on the show is because of Andy Cohen’s bromance with Jim Edmonds. Meghan is supposedly on the chopping block. However, this media tiff between Vicki and Meghan may have backfired on Vicki and given Bravo a reason to hire the St. Louis native back.
Here is what Vicki said on Tuesday:
“No desire, truly no desire to see her. She lives in St. Louis, I don’t even know what she was doing on our show anyway. She lives in St. Louis, she’s pregnant, she has her husband, they’re going to have six kids, she’s not friends with anybody. I don’t know what the correlation with her is. She’s socially friends with people, but we don’t all hang out together. I think it’s time for her to turn the chapter to something else and maybe not be our show, we’ll see.”
I shocked she admitted that Meghan doesn’t live in the OC and even more shocked that she didn’t say “my show.”
Today, Meghan bit back at Vicki in her own USWeekly story.
“She’s so desperate. She says she doesn’t care about me, yet she’s one of my top engagers on Instagram — I don’t even follow her — and she’s talking about me. It’s laughable. Additionally, I’m really close with Tamra [Judge] and Shannon [Beador], so goes to show how little she knows them.”
Sweetie, (I say in my most condescending Andy Cohen voice) Vicki is the star of the show. You are some guy from St. Louis’ fourteenth wife. She’s just trying to make sure you get kicked off the show. In typical Vicki fashion, it could backfire, but don’t think you are anything more than a nuisance to her. Focus on the upcoming new addition to your family.
As for Shannon and Tamra? Vicki seems to think things are still good between them.
“It was so nice to make up, it’s so good. It’s the holidays and it’s gotten us busy and we’re never going to be the same as we were before, but we are definitely in a better place, a great place. I don’t want to go backwards anymore. They hurt me, I hurt them and nobody benefitted. We just have to move on now.”
How long do you think that will last? I think it depends on who the new cast members are.
