The Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: Vicki Gunvalson Flips Out

Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd’s friendship might never be the same again. 

Monday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County picked up in the aftermath of the fight that found new housewife, Emily Simpson, threatening to kill Kelly. 

But Vicki wanted to know how her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, wound up being put on blast. If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know that Kelly was livid to learn that Steve was friends with her ex-husband. 

For Kelly, it was like a betrayal, and it was made worse that her then-BFF Vicki failed to see the issue with all of it. 

Gunvalson unpacked what went down with Tamra Judge and Emily. 

“Kelly thinks Steve’s mad at her, and I don’t know what’s going on,” Gunvalson solemnly said to her friends. “And now, Steve doesn’t want anything to do with her.”

“Shane neither,” said Simpson as though anybody cared whether her pot stirrer husband would be friends with the newest cougar in Orange County, adding “he doesn’t have time for it.”

In all honesty, Shane was the one who butted in when Dodd was trying to get the answers from Steve, so if anything, he should be apologizing to Kelly for trying to sink her storyline to get one of his own. 

Emily then went on to say that she was wrong about the way she reacted to Kelly. 

“I probably shouldn’t have said, ‘I’m going to kill you, but obviously it’s a figure of speech,” she said, trying to defend her actions. 

“[Kelly] said the entire time, ‘I just wanna go talk to Steve and fix it,'” added Tamra of the whole scenario. 

“She doesn’t give a rat’s a— about Steve, and I guarantee you she wants to see our relationship fold because she doesn’t want anyone happy,” Gunvalson balked, adding:

“Miserable people like miserable people. I was there.”

That’s when Tamra opted to light the fuse on the dynamite and secure her contract with the show for another season. 

“She said that Steve is only with you for your money,” she said while acting like it was not going to cause another war between the housewives. 

“I thought it appropriate to tell Vicki about what’s being said because the worst thing in this group is a rumor going to another person, another person, another person and not the person who’s directly involved,” Tamra said in defense of her actions. 

“Of course Kelly says that!” Gunvalson screamed as she stopping chopping vegetables.

“Shame on her for talking about my relationship. It’s bulls— that everybody’s always after what I have! Leave me alone! And by the way, I don’t have that much money.”

For what it’s worth, we did get to see Kelly and Tamra have that conversation earlier in the episode. 

“Do you think that guy is hitting it and quitting it?” Kelly asked, of Steve to Tamra.

“My friend was dating the girl that Steve was dating. He told the girlfriend that he’s only using Vicki for money. Swear to God. Dinero! Money talks and bulls— walks.”

“In my book, Steve’s a bad guy,” she added. “He’s hiding something. And everyone should know what kind of a person he is.”

While Tamra was trying to imply she was being nice to Vicki by telling her about the earlier comments, there was also footage that suggested she, too, was not taken in by Steve. 

“She doesn’t love him,” Judge said during a group dinner sans Gunvalson. “I’m sorry, she does not love that man.”

Never one to come to a party without some proof, she reminded the ladies of Shannon’s matchmaker.

“When I was talking with the matchmaker with her, she was like ‘Maybe I should go to him too?’” Judge recalled.

While everyone seemed to be against Gunvalson’s relationship, it was all playing out swimmingly for the cameras. 

“You better not let me down,” she told Lodge as they celebrated her birthday.

“I feel great at 56. It’s been a bumpy couple last three years, but now that Steve’s in my life, I finally feel like I’m at peace.”

 “I don’t need a man for money, and he doesn’t need me for money,” she continued. “I don’t care about stuff. I care about the person.“

“I would date a trash collector if that’s who I fell in love with.”

Lodge seemed to agree. “I think in her mind she feels, ‘I’m successful I don’t need another man’s money, so I’m going to fall in love not because he has money,’ ” he said. “Unlike some other people we know.”

That last little bit of word salad was very likely a jab at Kelly. 

Oh yes, it’s on.

Gina Kirschenheiter: Quitting The Real Housewives of Orange County?

Gina Kirschenheiter has really made a splash on The Real Housewives of Orange County, from siding with Kelly Dodd against Vicki to speaking her mind without hesitation.

She’s made a real impression with fans, who would be happy to see her return for another season.

Will Gina stay or will she go?

RadarOnline spoke to a network insider who explained why Bravo wants Gina Kirschenheiter back for another season.

The Bravo insider says that Gina is “absolutely” welcome back next season.

“She has gained a tremendous fan base,” the source explains.

A huge factor in her immediate popularity, the insider explains, is “because people can relate to her.”

She’s a reality star with a reasonably glamorous lifestyle, so crossing that bridge to relatability can be tricky — but she managed it.

There are some pretty simple reasons for Gina’s rapid rise to popularity among viewers, and it’s not the ase of spelling her last name.

“She speaks what is on her mind,” the source explains. “And she doesn’t hold back anything.”

That’s a great quality in a reality star, but also a breath of fresh air to viewers who are tired of jaded reality veterans who pick their battles.

“She is refreshing,” the insider states.

“And,” the source continues, Gina “has gotten really close to several of the cast members already.”

As we had mentioned, Gina sided with Kelly against Vicki over Vicki’s double-dates with Kelly’s ex.

As we reported very early this summer, Gina Kirschenheiter divorced her husband shortly after the show wrapped filming.

It was said that Gina seeing parts of her life through the lens of a camera helped to put some things into perspective for her.

Though viewers have seen her acting almost as a single parent to her three young children this season, she and Matt Kirschenheiter don’t seem to have any hard feelings.

The insider dishes that Gina “has done an amazing job co-parenting and will continue to be friends with Matt.”

That can be a difficult line to tread — good for her! And good for him, too!

As much as fans and Bravo would like to see an encore performance from Gina, ultimately, that ball is in her court.

“It is up to her whether or not she decides to take the invite back on the show,” the source explains.

That makes sense. Some contracts last for several seasons, but few — networks or stars — are eager to start with a multi-year contract.

“But hopefully,” the insider says. “She will.”

Very practically, the source says: “The paycheck sure can’t hurt her.”

Even amicable divorce is expensive, even if you’re rich — in terms of sheer numbers, especially if you’re rich. 

But even if it weren’t for that … the hefty paycheck for a Housewife salary is difficult to turn down. You can never have too much money, folks.

That said, for some people, they find that they’re happier when their lives aren’t out in the open on television and social media.

Still, we’ll keep our fingers crossed that Gina loves being on the show as much as viewers love seeing her.

She really brings a special element to the show’s dynamic.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 7 Recap: She Said/She Said

It was a tale of two best friends duking it out on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 7, and no, we’re not talking about Kelly Dodd and the OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson. 

In a surprising turn of events, Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge came to blows during a fun-filled day of golf that quickly concluded with them in a bitter war of words. 

It all started because Tamra wondered why her supposed BFF was not sharing her health and fitness journey with her. 

“I wish Shannon would talk to me,” Tamra said to her mother. 

“It actually makes me mad. She sees the healthy lifestyle that we live. Instead, I’m going with her to pick out gym equipment, and she’s hiring some trainer.”

“We have trainers – we have one who can come to your house if you want. I just wish that she would trust me.”

“I take a lot with Shannon,” she continued. 

“There’s a lot of dumping on me and telling me what’s going on and there’s a lot of negativity. I get off the phone, and I’m drained. She never asks, “How’s Eddie doing? What’s going on?” She never asks. She doesn’t care.”

Shannon has been so focused on her divorce settlement, and how to get back to being a happy person to move on with her life that it seems she’s neglecting her friend. 

We got to see her with her male trainer about how she wanted her stomach to “go in further than my boobs.” 

However, all of this was just a precursor to the main event, which took place on a golf course for Shannon’s birthday. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know that Emily Simpson’s husband, Shane went off on her co-star Gina Kirschenheiter and asked her to leave his house because she was too loud during a party. 

That reminded Beador of her time with David, and how her marriage fell apart, and she wasted no time in telling the ladies before the event how she felt. 

“When you were talking about that he was yelling or something, ‘get out of my house’ or whatever, I could see that happen in my marriage,” she previously told the ladies while Emily was not there. 

“I walked on eggshells around him because he would be upset if there was loud noise when the kids were trying to go to sleep,” she continued. 

In true reality TV fashion, the comments found their way to Emily, and she thought her co-stars were branding her husband “abusive.”

“It’s upsetting to me that Shannon has an opinion about my marriage,” Emily said during a confessional Wednesday night.

“First of all, don’t even compare the two. You’re divorced, and your relationship is tumultuous. My husband and I are together, and we have a great marriage. So when you make those comparisons, it pisses me off.”

Emily took Shannon to task during the birthday celebrations. 

“Gina and I had a conversation, and she said that you made a comment insinuating something about how you were concerned for my safety or there being abuse or something,” she said. 

“Don’t put words in my mouth, sweetie,” complained Shannon in a confessional after saying she “would never use that word.”

“The only thing you’ve ever told me about David is all these awful things,” Emily said.

“I said I walked on eggshells around him because he would be upset if there was loud noise when the kids were trying to go to sleep,” Shannon responded. 

It all seemed fine, and even Kelly helped them stop the bickering, but then the feud ignited when the ladies stopped for lunch. 

“Can I ask you all a question?” Shannon asked. “Who put the word ‘abuse’ with ‘Shannon Beador’? Because I never said it.”

Emily looked directly at Gina. 

“You said, ‘Well, I think Shannon made some insinuation that maybe she was worried about you because you were in an abusive relationship.'”

“I never said that,” Gina fired back.

“That night after you left, the situation got brought up again. I felt like, as your friend, I should tell you what was going on. What I told her was that you felt like it was something that David would have done to you, and you were concerned about it.”

Gina then said that Shannon was “projecting her own shit” onto Emily, and that’s when Vicki stepped in because she wanted to know whether Emily was lying. 

Emily was furious but adamant that she did not add words to it. Gina and Emily were smart and knew to leave the situation. 

Shannon put Tamra on blast, saying that she brought the whole thing up. 

“Oh, don’t even f–king blame it on me, Shannon Beador! You said what you said!” Tamra wailed. 

“Tamra, I am not accusing you of anything,” Shannon responded. 

“You just did,” Tamra fired back. “When someone attacks your husband, it’s hurtful!”

Before we knew it, the birthday girl had run off, and Tamra was annoyed. 

“This is so typical of Shannon, Tamra continued. “Shannon’s really good at making situations about her. Too bad.”

Yeah, looks like these two are well and truly not friends!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 6 Recap: Rumors

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 6 confirmed what we all expected:

Shannon Beador’s relationship with her delusional ex-husband, David is in tatters. 

The 53-year-old revealed that David thought she was doing everything in her power to try and turn the tide against him in the courtroom. 

“David’s shown quite a bit of anger towards me,” she said after saying that David thought she was using the abusive texts he sent her as leverage. 

The evidence is evidence. However, it may appear, so we can’t even begin to imagine why the loser thought Shannon would not use them. 

On the way to court during Monday’s episode, Shannon was so scared to face him that she ran a red light while on the phone to her mother about what was going to happen at the court. 

Shannon has been open up about David’s abuse and kept all of the details in the court filings, but this further scared her. 

“I feel like I’m walking into the unknown,” she said after saying she worried about how it “might set him off.”

She then met up with her lawyer Ben and continued to worry about what could happen. 

“I don’t know what David I’m going to see today,” she said. 

“My wish is that a weight is going to be lifted off my shoulders after this court date. My reality is telling me, nah, it’s just gonna make things worse,” she admitted, adding: “He’s not going to be happy no matter what decision is made.”

Things went Shannon’s way in the courtroom, and she called Tamra Judge to let her know her thoughts on it after admitting she was “shaken up, emotional, and just very uneasy.”

That would certainly make one think it did not go her way, but it really did. 

“I don’t even have any words for it,’ she said through tears. “‘The judge ordered him to pay me a lot of money every month — $ 30,000-a-month.”

However, we quickly learned why Shannon was so shaken up. 

“We went out in the hallway, and David came around the corner where I was talking to Ben, and he just went off on Ben and me.”

“And Ben had to scream for the bailiff. He was so livid. He came around the corner and said, ‘You f*****g happy Ben?’”

It certainly sounds like an awkward encounter, to say the least, but Shannon opted to throw her devious ex a bone. 

She said that she agreed to lower the $ 30,000 pay down to $ 22,500 “because that’s what I need at this point.”

“So we went back into the courtroom, and he was shaking with anger. If anything, I was fair in cutting down the order. I just want him out of my life,” she continued. 

It’s great that Shannon has her friends at her side, but we learned early into the episode that the texts could be the thing that saved her case. 

She said they were so bad “I guarantee you I will never have to talk to him again.”

“‘F**k you, you f*****g b***h,” and “You f*****g disgust me, you fat a**. Get off your f*****g lazy fat a**. Did you get out of bed today, you f***ing b***h'” she said of the torrent of abuse. 

“That’s what I get, all the time,” she said with a sad look on her face. 

“Believe it or not, I had David over to my house for Thanksgiving and Christmas. But he says that he lived through 17 years of hell with me,” said Shannon in a confessional. 

“So, I’m sorry you feel that way. Thank God you’re out.”

While things with her and David were over, the ladies wanted her to return to the dating scene. 

“I think Shannon definitely needs a kick in the a** to start dating. She needs to get laid,” said Tamra who seemed more excited by the prospect of it than Shannon herself. 

“I think that what I’ve come to realize is that what I’m looking for is a partnership,” Shannon told matchmaking experts. “I’m not going to go and meet a guy at a bar and then make out with him at that night. I need to know somebody before we’re going to touch lips.”

“She loves sex — she does,” Tamra instead insisted. “She needs a guy who can get it on.”

‘I don’t know if I’m ready to date,’ Shannon countered. ‘The whole thought panics me. Just panics me.”

Meanwhile, newcomers Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter were still bringing all the drama thanks to Gina’s husband yelling at Emily for being a little too loud at a party. 

“No guy should be yelling at any woman,” insisted Tamra. “He’s having a party in his house. Did he expect everyone to be quiet?”

Kelly Dodd had a whole different outlook on the matter. 

“No wonder why he was upset — everyone was drinking, having fun, gambling… and they don’t swear. S**t. I’m going straight to hell.”

We’re happy to report that Kelly was having a joke with Vicki Gunvalson. 

Okay then.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 5 Recap: Orange County Hold ‘Em

Shannon Beador has been through the mill of late. 

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 5, she opened up to both viewers and Kelly Dodd about what it was like to end her 17-year marriage to David. 

“I want to have a partner … [but] I don’t know if I’m ready,” she said as she contemplated the future. 

Beador went on to confirm that she’s still struggling with her body. 

“I think that part of the reason why I can’t imagine myself with somebody or dating somebody is because I’m not comfortable in my body,” she told fellow Housewife Kelly Dodd, tearing up.

“If I were to take my clothes off, I don’t want to see it, so I don’t want somebody else to see it.”

“I know I’m a good catch, but it’s hard for me to say,” she added.

“I was just told for all these years that I’m selfish and I’m worthless, and I’m fat. I know I’m not, but when you hear it for so long…”

As for Dodd, she was facing similar battles because she recently got divorced, and that’s likely why these two women are so close now. 

“I’ve heard all of those things for so long too, Shannon,” she said to her friend. 

“There’s not days I don’t cry or [feel] depressed. I’m lonely. I don’t have anybody having my back. It’s sad. I want somebody that’s there for me.”

“It looks like I go out and have a good time with guys, but the reality is, I just got out of a 13-year marriage, and I am not used to being alone,” Dodd said in a confessional. 

“Kelly and I have gone through hell and back,” Beador said.

“Who would have thought that I’d be sitting, having a nice conversation. And her supporting me, shows you how you can evolve.”

“The best and right thing is happening for the both of us,” she said.

“I’m just grateful we’ve reached the point in our relationship where we totally understand each other. You have such a big heart, and I’m really grateful that we’re at this place.”

“I’m grateful to you too. I mean, who knew?” said a shocked Kelly. 

While that particular friendship was flourishing, there was still beef between Vicki and Kelly. If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know that Kelly was mad Vicki and her boyfriend was going on double dates with her ex-husband.

Tamra and Shannon tried to play the peacemakers at Emily’s party, but it was clear the rift was growing between them. 

Poor Emily didn’t know what she was getting herself into when she invited them over to the party. The odd thing about Emily is that she doesn’t seem like a real housewife. 

It’s almost like the producers thought throwing her in would shake things up and add a new dynamic. Instead, her scenes are really difficult to get through. 

As for Tamra, she was still trying to find the balance between looking after her husband, Eddie, and keeping all of the women from ripping each other apart. 

Eddie’s still not better, and the doctor is determined to give him a drug that will essentially stop his heart and then he will be shocked back to life. 

It’s a horrifying reality and one that anyone would be terrified of it. The most surprising aspect is that he’s allowing it all to be filmed in front of the cameras. 

Maybe this is more about raising awareness than being a storyline for a Bravo reality series. 

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 has been somewhat subdued. There have been many arguments, but they all seem to center on the same thing, and that’s problematic. 

We need the OG of the OC to bring the drama back!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 4 Recap: Judge, Jury and Gina

“Call animal control, ‘cause there’s a cougar on the loose in the OC.”

That’s the tagline for Kelly Dodd on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13

While it’s natural for someone just out of a marriage to want to spread their wings and prove they can still find themselves some loving, the tagline was a bit out there. 

Kelly lived up to that tagline on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 4 which found her getting a little bit too close for comfort with one man. 

Kelly joined Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, Emily Simpson, or Gina Kirschenheiter for a dinner date during the episode, and wasted no time in opening up about her new beau. 

“I’m dating a guy. He’s pulling in, he’s a spine doctor,” Dodd told her gal pals. 

“He’s coming in!” she continued, clearly trying to give them all the information they needed to know to chat with him. “I met him in Aspen!”

“You look, beautiful honey, really beautiful,” Rick Paicius, the man said to Kelly as he pulled up a seat beside her. 

“Aww that’s sweet,” she responded after a kiss. “I miss you.”

They were all over each other. It was rather embarrassing when you consider the fact that they had only met each other two weeks before these scenes were filmed. 

“Make it stop,” Judge said when the duo continued to kiss each other. “We’ll leave you two alone!”

“Some guy comes in, and they start making out. It’s like, ‘Okay bye!’ ” Judge joked. “That was awkward. This is the weirdest ending to a dinner ever, even for us.”

Added Simpson: ‘I felt like I was on their date. I was like, ‘Okay this is uncomfortable, maybe we should leave….’ ”

“Literally needed to run as well,” laughed Kirschenheiter.

While the other women found it funny, Vicki tried to dole out some words of wisdom in an attempt to make it seem like she still knew her former friend. 

“Kelly is very confused right now,” said Gunvalson.

“She’s really upset that Michael dated someone else, but she’s okay flaunting her new boyfriend in the midst of a girl’s night? … Kelly divorced Michael. He’s allowed to date whoever he wants. And if he wants Steve and I to go out with him, we will.”

As previously reported, Kelly lashed out at Vicki for going on double-dates with her ex-husband and his new girlfriend. 

“That’s girl code,” said Kirschenheiter, who was firmly Team Kelly.

“What girl is in a situation where she’s like, ‘We have to keep this whole thing secret because I’m friends with his ex-wife?’ What a f—ing loser is she? I would personally say, ‘F— you, I’m not even hooking you up.’ ”

Kelly did forgive Vicki for her actions, but it was obvious she was not going to forget about them. 

“I want Vicki to know what other people’s opinions are because she thinks that only hers are right,” Dodd explained to viewers.

“I hope Vicki learned her lesson because everybody schooled her that she was wrong, which she is.”

Something tells us the pair are going to be going at it for much of the rest of the season and likely beyond.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 3 Recap: Tres Amigas

These ladies sure know how to bring the drama, and that’s commendable when you consider that most of them have been on this show since the beginning. 

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 3 found Tamra Judge, Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador embarking on a trip to Mexico. 

The tequila shots were flowing, and it resulted in Gunvalson peeing herself in the airport, and subsequently falling. Yes, we’re going to assume that tequila is not her friend. 

All three of them were a real hoot throughout the trip, but one of the stand out moments has got to be a tequila fueled-Tamra ordering Shannon to show off some more cleavage. 

Shannon has parted ways with her husband, and Tamra was trying to reiterate that she could still show off her body if she wanted to capture another man. 

Tamra also wanted to have fun. The reason? 

“I just want to have a good time because there’s so much s— going on in my life that you could probably make a country song about me,” Judge said, referring to her husband’s ongoing heart problems.

“My husband’s heart’s broken. Somebody give me a shot of tequila. It’s ridiculous.”

The ladies continued to party back at the hotel, and that’s when things went awry. Tamra, 50, flashed Vicki and proceeded to jump back into the hot tub. 

She hit her foot on the way down, and well, she broke it. 

“I might’ve hurt my foot,” she said.

“Like, might’ve hurt like broke my foot maybe?” “It’s all gonna be good. Can we have another shot? I think I need another shot and my foot’s gonna be real good.”  

The tequila masked the pain for a short while, but Tamra wound up in the hospital and learned that her foot was broken. 

It was wrapped in a cast. The true kicker was that she was told she would not be able to drive. 

“By the way, I went to the hospital by myself because you guys passed out,” she teased said to her friends. “I had to take a cab to the hospital; it was 30 minutes away.”

“It’s not funny,” she said to her friends. 

“It sounds like you were drunk as f—,” Tamra’s husband shared with her on Facetime. 

Tamra tried to make the best of a dangerous situation, but she could not keep up after the painkillers entered her system. 

They knocked her out, and it was up to Shannon and Vicki to look after her. 

After dinner one of the nights, Shannon opened up about her thoughts on them being friends again. 

“I have to tell you that the fact that you both came down here to spend just a whopping two days with me has meant so much to me,” she said tearfully to Vicki.

“Four years ago, I wouldn’t even sip tequila. It was David’s new drink. And I didn’t know that he was having an affair at the time. And that was their thing — they would drink tequila.”

“I spent 20 years with a man, and he took me on a trip, and then all of a sudden we come home, and he was done,” she continued.

“And the fact that he has found someone within months of leaving me is devastating. I have gone through the pain knowing that he is with somebody else.”

“You know what the scary part for me is?,” Vicki said in response, adding: ” You can be all in in a relationship, and at any point in time, the other one can check out. It’s like a death.”

They then locked lips, so there’s that.
