So far, we’ve had a very snoozy season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Kelly Dodd is poking her nose into last season. Meghan Edmonds fascinates us with her IVF shots. And Heather Dubrow is still house obsessed. Poor Briana is the only one bringing the drama — and not in a good way, but in a racing to the hospital every five minutes kind of way. Heather assures us next week’s 70’s party will be spicy. I’ll hold her to it.
In the meantime, Kelly’s beach party continues as everyone shuffles inside to ooo and ahhh at her modern design scheme and the booze stash in her closet. When Vicki Gunvalson goes in to hug Shannon Beador — things turn very awkward.
“Kelly and I got along great at the party, we laughed a lot. I was confused when she was talking about the party being a “gang up” on Vicki and suggesting the rest of us are mean. Tamra is moving on, I am moving on…Meghan and Vicki (as Meghan pointed out) were never friends in the first place. So at this point it’s just Shannon and Vicki. Everyone seemed to interact with Vicki, so where’s the gang up?”
And now onto Heather’s house. Again.
“When my builder, Robert St. John came over I knew we had a little problem in the bar, but I didn’t realize we had to redesign the thing! Ugh! I’m ready to be done!”
As are we all, Heather. But when Terry has to leave on Mother’s Day, Heather’s naturally upset.
“I realize being passive aggressive about Terry leaving on Mother’s Day is ridiculous, but at this point I’m over it. He’s a pleaser and wants to say yes to everyone but me and the kids have been getting the short end of the stick for a long time while he shoots two TV shows. Time for things to change.”
Terry has always seemed like a very self-centered man, and this is just another example of that. This is who he’s always been. I don’t know why Heather is surprised by it. The man admitted he doesn’t want to be around his kids because he’d rather be working. It’s not complicated; it’s just sad.
On the serious front, Briana was taken to the hospital by ambulance. I’m worried for that girl.
“Briana not breathing was so scary, especially in front of her kids… I’m exhausted watching Vicki take care of the boys, they are so busy at that age! Also, I agree – bring back the playpen! I made a big gated area for the twins when they were little, a giant safe zone so I could go to the bathroom, haha!”
Um, didn’t Heather have nannies? Anyway, she weighs in on Shannon’s refusal to forgive Vicki.
“…I completely understand how Shannon feels about the situation with Vicki, but I think Tamra had good advice to soften the email invite to her party.”
So what’s your take on the season so far? Fascinating or fail? Looks like things will pick up next week when Kelly goes in hard on Shannon. At her own party. Thoughts?
