RHOC: 8 THOUGHTS I HAD AFTER WATCHING EPISODES 3 + 4

I’m back! I didn’t mean to take a mini hiatus – I was supposed to be on vacation, which turned out disastrous and ended up being a staycation, so life has been a little crazy. Luckily, I’m all caught up on RHOC, and instead of giving my normal play by play, I’d much rather just give my thoughts. We haven’t even hit Episode 5 yet and this season is already crazy. I’m loving it.

1.) VICKI IS A BAD FRIEND.

I mean, I’m sure by now we all know that that’s a given. But I had hope when her apology to Eddie seemed so sincere! It literally baffles me that she sees nothing wrong with what she did to Kelly. And the fact that after she leaves Kelly’s house, she calls Michael to tell him what happened! It’s so messed up.

2.) JOLIE IS WISE BEYOND HER YEARS.

While I don’t necessarily agree with Kelly sharing everything with her 12 year old daughter, Jolie, I will say she is very smart for her age. She knows a lot about friendships and forgiveness for being so young, more so than I did at her age. (And, if I’m being honest, even now, at almost age 30.) She pretty much tells Kelly that Vicki isn’t a good friend, and that she can forgive her but it doesn’t mean that thing need to go back to exactly how they were. She’s absolutely right.

3.) IF YOU WANT TO RENEW A BROKEN FRIENDSHIP, JUST BOOK A TRIP TO MEXICO.

These bitches are insane. But I seriously loved every moment of the Mexico trip. They are wasted from the very start and they never really stop. Even when Tamra breaks her foot. (Okay, I did feel bad for Tamra – but who jumps into a jacuzzi!?) I love when these Tres Amigas get along. They’re fun and entertaining to watch. “Cheers to our new normal.” Yassss!

4.) KELLY FORGIVES VICKI….SORT OF…..

Vicki and Kelly meet at a coffee shop, and Kelly explains to Vicki that she is upset because Vicki didn’t tell her that she was “setting up” or going on double dates with Michael. Vicki apologizes, and we see Kelly accept that apology. Both weren’t exactly honest, though. Vicki says in a confessional that she didn’t do anything wrong, and Kelly brings up the situation at a girls dinner later in the episode. Clearly, neither is over this. For the record, I’m Team Kelly.

5.) GIRL CODE IS EVERYTHING.

Just ask Gina! I’m so glad Kelly brought up this again. You’d think Vicki would realize she’s wrong, which she clearly still doesn’t, but at least it was put out there. Don’t break Girl Code, Vicki, and then no one will have to come for you. 🤷🏼‍♀️

6.) TAMRA WILL FOREVER STIR THE POT.

I mean, some things never change. Tamra couldn’t wait to tell Gina that Vicki messaged her basically telling her that she hated Gina. Typical Tamra. She loves to stir the pot and then sit back and watch how it all goes down.

7.) SHANNON BEADOR IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL

I just genuinely love Shannon Beador. I feel her on so many levels. I totally understand the weight fluctuation struggle, and I love what she’s doing with the healthy meal kits, so I’m curious to see if QVC took that on. She’s just real and honest, a very genuine person. I love her.

8.) I DON’T SEE VICKI & GINA BECOMING FRIENDS – EVER.

I will say that I totally respect Gina for reaching out to Vicki to make things right after that awkward AF dinner party. However, I agree with Gina 100%. She’s allowed to have an opinion, and she didn’t think what Vicki did was okay. Vicki can’t own anything and it’s so annoying. They go for a walk on the beach, and they squash whatever issue they had, but it’s clear that these two will never see eye to eye. Vicki can not handle a newbie coming in and telling her she’s wrong. She doesn’t believe she’s actually in the wrong anyway. So there’s no reasoning with her.

Next week looks interesting……

RHOC: One Apology, Another Betrayal

We are back with Episode 2, and I’m not disappointed! I definitely have high hopes for this season, which is exciting! Okay, let’s just get into it.

We start off with Tamra & Eddie at their new casa, and Tamra explains how Eddie’s first surgery didn’t really work & he will probably have to have another procedure. Poor Eddy! I feel terrible for him. We hear the door, and then you just hear a producer say, “Vicki brought you food” which made me LOL. Eddie is on my level of pettiness; he will not eat anything brought over by Vicki Gunvalson. 😂😂

We switch over to Shannon, who is at her new house also, and she’s getting ready to go to Mexico with her girls. David is sending them (I mean, really David, that’s the least you could do) because he’s going off on some trip of his own with his new GF. Honestly though, who is this bitch? Who would date David Beador after seeing everything he put Shannon through? I guess when you’re looking for a sugar daddy it doesn’t matter. 🤷🏼‍♀️. Anyway, they’re about to head to the airport, and then Bravo gives us the most amazing flashback of Shannon in the car with the girls, telling them how David’s paying for the trip. “This is the lifestyle I’m accustomed to, that’s what my lawyer said.” Yaaaassss Shannon!

Tamra & Emily are getting mani’s, and Kelly joins. Kelly literally kills me in this scene – she just looks at Emily and then at Tamra and goes, “Is this your friend?” LOLOL. Tamra introduces them and they start talking, and of course Emily has to bring up again how her husband proposed via Google Chat. Please, stop it. She also discloses that Shane (hubby) was her boss, and Kelly says something about how they must’ve been banging. Emily insists that they weren’t – Shane is Persian & Mormon. (I know nothing about Persians, do they not believe in premarital sex?) Weird. When Emily does talk about going through IVF though, my feelings for her change a little, and they definitely soften. I cannot imagine what she went through. I think that is a big fear for a lot of women, and it’s also something other women can relate to. I love that her sister was her surrogate – for all of her children! That’s amazing.

Now we’re at the car wash with Tamra, who is face-timing with Shannon. Shannon’s in Mexico and is definitely feeling a little lonely, thinking about prior trips as a family. She suggests that Tamra comes for a few days, and wants to invite Vicki! I’m honestly shocked by this, but yes, please Bravo give us The Three Amigos wasted in Mexico!!

We switch over to Vicki’s house. This scene bored me, so all I’m going to say is that I thought when Vicki was talking to Steve, she seemed genuinely apologetic about the shit she said about Eddie. It’s a step in the right direction.

Cut Fitness! Eddie can’t actually teach the class so Tamra’s helping. Kelly & Emily arrive for the class, and this is also where we meet newbie Gina. (Random side note: I am 100% Emily when I’m working out. I feel you girl.) After the class the girls are chatting, and we learn that while Gina lives in Orange County, her husband has an apartment in LA (for work) and lives there all week. Say what???? This is so weird to me. Gina has three kids, and she stays at home with them, and she doesn’t care that she doesn’t see her husband during the week because she can wear sweatpants and doesn’t have to wear makeup. Why can’t you do that when your husband is home? 🤔

Next is Vicki – she’s in the car, and she calls Kelly to get advice on how she should approach her apology to Eddie. Of course Vicki can’t just say sorry, she has to reiterate the fact that “they hurt her,too.” Jesus, cry me a river! Kelly is absolutely right when she tells Vicki that she cannot say that during her apology. She’s basically giving a backhanded apology. Sometimes I wonder what really goes on in her mind.

Eddie and Tamra are having lunch @ The Oak, when Tamra gets a call from Vicki. When she tells her what she’s doing, Vicki asks if she could drop by in 20 minutes to talk to Eddie. In Tamra’s defense, I would’ve interpreted Eddie’s shrug as a yes, also. When Vicki does arrive, it’s clear she’s a nervous wreck. And honestly, I know Vicki can be the worst sometimes, but I felt like in that moment her apology to Eddie was sincere. It made me happy to see the three of them get back on (somewhat of a) track.

We meet Shane; Shane & Emily are out to dinner for their anniversary (9 years!) Emily brings up the fact that she would like to have another baby (she still has embryos left) because she would really like for her daughter to have a sister. I see where she’s coming from, since her and her own sister are so close. Shane is totally opposed to the idea, and at first I thought he was kind of being a dick about it. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized what a tough issue that must be for both of them, because you can’t meet in the middle. There’s no compromise. They ended the conversation, but I have a feeling it will be brought up again at some point this season.

Vicki has left her apology lunch, and now she’s in the car and calls Kelly, to update her on how it went. Kelly tells her to stop by, and Vicki agrees. When Vicki gets there, we learn that Kelly had been getting texts from people that were telling her Vicki was “hooking Michael up” with other women. Vicki says that’s not true. Then she (very nonchalantly) adds that about four months earlier, she had a cookout and Michael was there with another woman. Kelly is obviously pissed and doesn’t understand why Vicki wouldn’t tell her. Vicki acts so perplexed about why Kelly would need to know. She is so careless about her commentary – she blurts out that she and Steve have gone on double dates with Michael & (insert random chicks name here) and can’t understand why Kelly is increasingly becoming more and more upset. The fact that Vicki doesn’t see anything wrong with this entire situation says a lot in itself. She even has the audacity to tell Kelly to stop being dramatic while she’s crying. Kelly kicks her out and tells her, “You’re not my friend.” Vicki leaves angry, like she was the one who was wronged. This whole scene pissed me off sooooo much. Vicki is such a bitch. Just when I thought we were getting somewhere, she goes and does this. Anyone would be mad about this (it’s common knowledge – Girl Code!) including Vicki, just ask Don. I feel like Vicki doesn’t give a shit about Kelly anymore because she’s friends with Tamra again and on the fast track to becoming close with Shannon again also. She’s the worst.

I’m excited for what’s to come, especially that Mexico trip! Are you Team Vicki or Team Kelly? I’m sure you already know where I stand.

Until next week!

RHOC SEASON 13 PREMIERE

RHOC

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

Eddie

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

Steve and Vicki

Vicki seriously kills me.  If she hasn’t scared Steve off now, I don’t think she ever will.  He’s definitely a keeper. wmoji

 

 

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

girls2

This makes me sooooo happy.  I really love when the girls are friends.  Seeing the foursome back together warms my heart. thumb-9181642

 

SINGLE HOT MAMA’S

single ladies

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

shannonbeadorring

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

 

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….
