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.

Barbara Kavovit: Joining The Real Housewives of New York City!

Poor Luann de Lesseps has been so embattled during her recovery from alcoholism. She could always use another friend — and there’s good news.

Luann’s friend Barbara Kavovit will be joining the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City.

This won’t be the first time that viewers have heard what she has to say on the show, however. …

Us Weekly confirms that Barbara Kavovit is joining The Real Housewives of New York City!

Barbara, who runs an on-the-go bag business called DIYva, is known for her friendship with Luann de Lesseps.

Given Luann’s recent struggles with sobriety and the hurtful claims that some have made about her recovery, fans will be happy to see Luann have another ally in the room.

It is unclear whether Barbara will be a Full Housewife or not, and Bravo has declined to confirm that Barbara is joining at all just yet.

But given that Carole Radziwill has just departed after six seasons of that status, someone has to fill that role.

Back in Season 9, Barbara had an off-camera discussion with Carole Radziwill about Tom D’Agostino, who was, at the time, Luann’s fiance.

She didn’t show up on camera in the episode, which aired in May of 2017, but fans could hear her voice because it was picked up by Carole’s mic.

“I think she has something to prove,” Barbara could be heard speculating about Luann’s determination to get married.

If you’ll recall, everyone tried to talk her out of marrying this man who was clearly no good for her. To no avail.

“She’d rather go through with it and get divorced than call it off,” Barbara assessed.

It was reported that Barbara tried her best to prevent the audio from airing. She and Luann are friends.

After all, in May of 2017, Luann and Tom were still married. But that wouldn’t last much longer.

Their 8-month marriage came to a crashing halt in August of that year.

(You know, just how Barbara and Bethenny and everyone else had told her that it would)

Clearly, Barbara’s little bit of gossip that aired hasn’t hurt her friendship with Luann in the long run. They were spotted hanging out together just last month!

As we mentioned, Carole has departed from the series.

“After six seasons on Bravo’s RHONYC, I have decided to return to what I do best,” Carole said in a statement.

Carole clarified that she means that she will be focusing on “journalism and producing.”

“I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers, all of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind,” she writes.

That is a very generous assessment. Every Housewife has fans and haters in droves.

“My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years,” Carole explains.

That definitely sounds a lot better than Bethenny and I stopped being friends and this isn’t fun anymore.

“And,” Carole continued. “I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament.”

“I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind,” Carole says.

Carole’s statement concludes: “I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy.”

Let’s hope that Barbara Kavovit enjoys her stay.

The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 22 Recap: Bethenny Frankel vs. Carole Radziwill

It was the end of the line for Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill on The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 22, as the two women admitted it was time to move on. 

Radziwill was quick to reveal that Bethenny’s harsh comments about her in the confessionals were too hurtful to move on from. 

“The season made it over for me,” she told Frankel on Wednesday’s finale.

“When you watch the confessional interviews, I’m seeing what you said about me. About not having a job, not having a husband…”

“I didn’t understand until I watched the show and I realized I was really, really trying to salvage our friendship and you didn’t seem that interested,” Radziwill continued. 

“And I only can imagine because you knew what you had said at all those confessional interviews.”

“I was trying all season to come back from this,” Radziwill said of Bethenny’s comments. 

“At the end, I was like, ‘Thank god we’re done with this season. Thank god we can go back. We can just regroup.’ And then I started watching the show…”

All of the above suggests that Radzwill was on board for another season of the Bravo hit, but it looks like things changed once she watched the season back. 

Bethenny’s comments “made me sad but also angry,” the departing cast member said.

For Frankel, Radziwill was just as bad what with her blog post and Instagram live to bash Bethenny. 

“The season would not have made it over,” Frankel said. “The bashing with the blogs and the bashing with a friend made it over. … It was really mean.”

Bethenny continued to claim that Carole had changed and that was the reason for the dunking of their relationship. 

“You’ve changed too,” Radziwill fired back. “You’ve become catty and gossipy. I didn’t change.

With this being Radziwill’s final episode, she did open up about her biggest regret: Not patching things up with Frankel. 

“My regret was that Bethenny and I could never get to a place where… I thought maybe by the end of the season we would be speaking and then reconnect,” Radziwill said.

“Because that friendship was important to me. And that never happened.” “I wish that we had had some kind of conversation so we could have put it into context,” she added.

“It was just hard. I tried. That’s my regret, that I failed.”

At the top of the episode, Carole got into it with Andy. He was furious that she said he was “full of shit.” 

Andy has the power to hire and fire on this franchise, so he was likely shocked at the way she spoke to him. 

Carole claimed Andy was scared of Bethenny Frankel, to which he replied:

“Yeah, I’m scared of her.”

It was ridiculous, but the most telling moment was Andy asking Carole about her regret from the season.

“Is yours telling me I’m full of shit?” he said with a serious look on his face. 

Could this be the REAL reason Carole is out of the series? 

As for the way this reunion concluded?

Tears. Lots of tears. 

Bethenny turned to look at Dorinda upon being asked what her biggest regret is, and said the following. 

“My biggest regret of the season is if I did say, ‘a drunk’ — because you and I heard it the same way when we saw it on TV — but if I called you ‘a drunk,’ I regret saying that to you on television.”

“Thank you, Bethenny,” Dorinda replied while crying. “That actually means a lot.”

“But I will say for the record, in the moment, we both heard it: ‘You’re drunk,'” Bethenny added. “But anyway, I own what was on the show, and that’s fine, and that’s my regret.”

“Um, I think — that actually means a lot to me,” Dorinda said, pointing at Bethenny. 

“It’s so stupid — it’s at the end of the show,” Dorinda continued, before meeting Bethenny for a hug. “It means the world to me.”

“I tried to be as compassionate as I could while I was there,” Bethenny replied. “And I saw it, and I was like, ‘Oof,’ you know? I really did.”

Dorinda then admitted she could not answer, and Andy moved on to Tinsley. 

She admitted that she was mad at herself for shouting “Shut your mouth and shut your f–king legs!” at Sonja. 

Sonja claimed she also regretted “opening that wound” with Tinsley. 

And that’s another season in the can!

What do you think of the conclusion?

The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 21 Recap: The Truth About the Countess

The ladies continued to battle it out on The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 21, and as is always the case with these ladies, it was filled with crazy moments. 

From Dorinda Medley’s drinking to Luann’s drinking, it made for one of the most bizarre outings of this reality series yet, and we loved every single second of it. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of New York online, you know that Dorinda has been all over the place of late. 

With various outbursts and downright sucky behavior, her co-stars have wondered whether she’s been drinking. 

While she denied that she was drunk all season long, she did admit that she realized last fall there was an issue with her drinking. 

What’s more, she is now attending therapy every two weeks to keep herself in line. Andy wasted no time in playing back the clip of Dorinda going at it with Luann de Lesseps in Cartegena. 

That little outburst was crazy and proved there was something wrong, but Dorinda seemed to think she was sober at that point. 

Her co-stars thought otherwise, but Ramona did come to her defense. Ramona argued that someone who was fresh out of rehab had no right to comment on whether someone else was drunk. 

But Dorinda was still mad and wanted the countess to give her the apology she supposedly deserved. 

A fan even went as far as asking Dorinda whether she needed help, and her response was pretty telling. 

She said she hadn’t been arrested, so she was good until that point. Makes sense, we guess. 

“Luann hit a bottom,” Bethenny said.

“Some would argue that saying to your friend who just got out of rehab is an ex-Countess felon might be a bottom.”

“I disagree,” Dorinda replied. “Next question. Andy.”

Bethenny said that Dorinda should not expect an apology from Luann because, well, Luann is in a dark place. 

But that didn’t sit well with Dorinda, who felt like she tried and tried to make things right with Luann. 

The conversation quickly turned to Luann’s drinking, and the ladies opened up about their thoughts on that as well as her second visit to rehab.

“She had taken a bit of a turn, and I think the recent situation with her family certainly didn’t help the matter,” Bethenny said, referring to the lawsuit filed against her. 

That lawsuit we’re talking about here involved her allegedly being told to set up a trust fund for her children when she sold her house, which she apparently didn’t do. 

“The straw that broke the camel’s back and pushed her over the edge,” said Ramona. 

“Now I can bring it up because of everything,” Ramona said, “but in Mexico, I told her things that I knew for a fact about Tom, and she’s like, ‘Oh, my God. Oh, my God. If Noel knew. Don’t tell anybody because if Noel knew, he’d die!’ I go, ‘I’m not gonna tell anybody, but you need to know this and deal with it and figure it out.'”

“You told her this off camera,” Andy questioned, and Ramona replied, “Yeah, in Mexico, before she fell. That’s why she fell.”

“Well, she had also had 18 tequilas,” Andy added. 

The housewives then detailed that Luann had been drinking on multiple occasions after the trip. 

Hell, even Bethenny who had been defending her all this time admitted as much. 

“I would say that she did not come to [the decision to enter rehab] entirely on her own,” she said.

“There were a few people there, and it was the right thing to do. It was a very, very emotional and crazy weekend.”

While drinking was the main topic of the conversation, we still got to hear more about the feud between Bethenny and Carole. 

Bethenny argued that Carole was the one who switched things up and left her out in the cold. Bethenny even said that she rarey got answers to messages and when she did, they were on word responses. 

That’s when Carole opened up about her thoughts. The issue allegedly stemmed from Bethenny trashing Adam, the younger man who asked to be compensated for charity work. 

Bethenny brought out her go-to response and dragged Carole for having no job. The two then compared messages, and they were equally as horrid to each other. 

It ended with nothing in the way of conclusion for them, and that’s because the final part airs next Wednesday on Bravo.

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!
