RHOC Season 13, Episode 1 premiered on 7/13/18. Honestly, after last season (which I found to be disastrous and possibly irredeemable) I was pleasantly surprised with the cast revamp this season, and I’m excited for what’s to come. Let’s talk about the episode & what’s been going on since we’ve seen the OC ladies last.
EVERYONE IS MOVING/HAS MOVED
We learn that Eddie & Tamra are in the process of moving, and Shannon and Kelly have both move out of their former homes that they shared with their former husbands, and into “smaller” homes. (I love Shannon, but hearing her talk about how weird it was to live in only 4,000 Sq Ft just made me LOL. Wish I had that problem.) Also, apparently Steve is basically living with Vicki, so that’s somewhat of a move as well.
EDDIE HAS A-FIB
Ugh, Poor Eddie! We learn early in the episode that Eddie has A-Fib, and he needs to have surgery. Eddie undergoes surgery during the episode, and he does well, however, Tamra tells Ryan that they found another area in his heart that was still beating irregularly, which means that the chance of A-Fib coming back is higher. (Sorry if I’m not explaining this properly, I personally do not know much A-Fib.) I am glad that he’s doing well though, and since we all follow the bravolebs on Social Media, we do know that he is doing okay today. However, according to a post from Tamra on Instagram, he’s undergone numerous surgeries since that first one. Everyone say lots of prayers that he is fine and in good health, please!
For those of you who do not know what A-Fib is, here’s what I just copied & pasted off of google:
The heart’s upper chambers (atria) beat out of coordination with the lower chambers (ventricles).This condition may have no symptoms, but when symptoms do appear they include palpitations, shortness of breath, and fatigue.Treatments include drugs, electrical shock (cardioversion), and minimally invasive surgery (ablation).
STEVE’S A KEEPER
Vicki seriously kills me. If she hasn’t scared Steve off now, I don’t think she ever will. He’s definitely a keeper.
BROOKS IS MARRIED
Did anyone else have to be like, wait, what!? after hearing that Brooks has gotten married!? Who in the world would marry a scumbag like Brooks!? You seriously cannot get any lower than a cancer scam, yet, he still managed to find himself a wife!? She looks a little crazy though, which is a given – a normal human being would not marry Brooks. Sorry I’m not sorry for being a bitch. He’s a bad person! Puke.
THE GIRLS ARE WORKING ON THEIR FRIENDSHIP
This makes me sooooo happy. I really love when the girls are friends. Seeing the foursome back together warms my heart.
SINGLE HOT MAMA’S
Kelly & Michael are officially divorced, and Shannon and David are getting there. I predict that Kelly & Shannon will definitely bond this season over what they’re going through.
SHANNON TOOK HER RING OFF! YAAASSSS
Good fucking riddance to David Beador. I hate him, I’ve always hated him, but I love Shannon & I just wanted her to be happy, even if that meant staying with that POS. I do feel for her, though. I can’t even begin to imagine what she’s going through, and I know taking that ring off was a huge deal for her, especially when she explained her reasoning behind wearing it.
WE MEET NEWCOMER: EMILY
So apparently Emily & Tamra used to be friends; Emily helped Tamra plan Ava’s Baby Shower. (According to Tamra, Emily is a party planner by night and an attorney by day.) They had somewhat of a falling out, though, because Emily was still hanging around with the old group (Ricky, Gretchen) who are both members of the I Hate Tamra Fan Club. They recently reunited, and according to Emily she reached out to Tamra because she missed her. I call bullshit – you wanted in on the franchise because you knew Peggy, Lydia and Meghan were out and they needed new cast members for the show. I hate being judgey when I first meeting the new girls, but I can’t help it. From what I’ve seen, I don’t think I’ll like her. She’s…odd. I felt like she was really trying to hard to be “relatable” and that annoys me most of all. If you have money, just own it girl. We like that you have money – we’re not watching RHOC for it’s poorness and simplicity. I don’t like the way she described her relationship with her husband, either. It was just odd. That’s the only way I can describe Emily so far – odd. We’ll see.
The first episode of any of the housewives is typically relatively boring, and while this one wasn’t crazy in any way it did hold my interest. I’m excited for what’s to come, especially after that insane trailer of the season.
Until next week….
