The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 Episode 15 Recap: Mystic Mistake

Maybe Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador are not as close as they would like the world to think. 

That thought crossed my mind several times during The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 Episode 15 when it became ever more apparent that they are just as toxic as the rest of the housewives. 

When the episode got underway, David confirmed to Shannon that he questioned Diko about Peggy’s cancer diagnosis. Shannon did seem like she understood, but was probably only mad because it looked like her husband was doing her dirty work for her. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you will know that Peggy’s double mastectomy has been the topic of conversation all season long and it’s about time everyone stopped talking about it. 

Tamra was very much against anything else being said about the whole cancer situation, but Shannon would not shut up about it, and it started to grate on Tamra’s nerves. 

Like viewers, she was done with hearing these people bring down Peggy for her cancer diagnosis. Tamra wanted Diko and David to work their issues out and leave the women out of it. 

Shannon got mad because Tamra was giving advice when she didn’t want it. Isn’t that what friends are for? Maybe these two have just outgrown each other. 

Meanwhile, Vicki admitted that she needed to go to the cardiologist to make sure that all was right with her after some stressful times. Part of this stemmed from the phone call she received when her mother died, so it’s understandable that she would be worried. 

The doctor confirmed Vicki’s worst fears and said there might be a blockage, and one of the chambers of her heart could be enlarged. This was worrying for the OG of the OC, but she claimed she was ready to live a little. 

Meghan was still scarred by some of the fiery feuds this season, so she invited the ladies over to meet with her psychic, Mystic Michaela. 

Peggy did not seem interested in speaking with Shannon because she just seemed so over all of the talks about her health, and she sat with a scowl on her face for the whole event. 

When the ladies indulged in some fine dining, Lydia asked them all to accompany her to Iceland, and the ladies who attended the event seemed happy enough. 

Vicki and Kelly ditched the event at Meghan’s and had some wine, but Vicki wanted to let her pal know about her diagnosis. Vicki said that she was convinced a murmur is what killed her mother. 

So, her big idea was to work less and be around positive people. It’s good on paper, but if she wants to stay out of the drama, the producers will fire her, so there’s that. 

Lydia called the pair to invite them to Iceland, and they agreed to go. Vicki did not want to, but she did so for Kelly. 

After that, Peggy thought it was high time Shannon got a taste of her own medicine, so she confronted Shannon about the whole thing. 

Shannon reiterated that David was asking the questions because he was worried about Peggy and wanted to know more. Shannon also said that Diko was the one in the wrong for jumping to conclusions. 

Shannon flipped out when Peggy questioned whether Shannon trusted David. Shannon yelled about David’s infidelity, and all I could do was laugh. 

Shannon is deluded these days and needs to get help. Peggy said she wanted everyone to shut up about her health and that if she wanted to talk about it, she would. 

After Peggy left, Shannon cried wolf because nobody stuck up for her, and Tamra told her to stop being an asshole. Shannon admitted that the affair is coming back to haunt her, and it’s not a good feeling. 

What do you think about all of this?

Big Brother Recap: Elena’s Big Mistake

Being put on the block is not fun, and for Elena, she took one of the biggest gambles in the history of Big Brother this week. 

When the episode got underway, Elena, Matt, and Jason were on the block, and Alex’s plan to get rid of Cody was in full swing. 

Kevin chatted with Cody about staying strong for his family and said to the viewers that he would never cry on TV. In a somewhat contradictory move, he then proceeded to cry with his face inside the fridge. 

Cody then dropped the bomb on him that he has a child of his own, but he likes to keep quiet about it because the other houseguests should not have the right to know what he’s playing for. 

When it came to picking players for the veto, Cody knew the only way to save himself would be if he got to play in the competition. Unfortunately for him, Paul and Alex joined the nominees. 

Cody knew his time was up, but he held on to hope that another target would emerge before Thursday night. In a surprising turn of events, a new target emerged. 

The competition found the houseguests shooting objects at a map to get the highest number. There were advantages and disadvantages thrown into the competition. 

  • Round 1: Paul is eliminated and gets the Power of Veto! 
  • Round 2: Mark is eliminated and gets a Colorado vacation. He keeps it. 
  • Round 3: Jason is eliminated and gets Tandem Skydiving, where he will be bound to another houseguest for 48 hours. 
  • Round 4: Matt is eliminated and gets the Extreme-itard that he must wear for a week. He trades it for the Power of Veto. Elena makes a deal with Alex to not curse each other. 
  • Round 5: Alex is eliminated and gets $ 5,000. She keeps it. 
  • Round 6: Elena wins, and she gets Camp Guide, but she swaps it with Alex and takes the $ 5000. 

So, Elena could have saved herself, but instead, she chose to take the money. That shows Elena feels threatened and the lowest person on the totem pole. 

Alex was pissed and immediately turned to her allies to say they are getting rid of Elena. They noted that it’s best to deal with Cody first and then take things from there. 

Alex had to make hot dogs on demand for her fellow houseguests, and Cody tried to use it to his advantage by asking her to save him. She revealed that he was not her target. 

The house chose him. 

In the end, he made one final attempt at creating an alliance with Jason and Alex. 

Unfortunately, Matt used his own POV on Jason and Cody was sent to the block. 

Cody is 100 percent leaving, but who will follow him out in an intense double eviction?

We will find out tonight!


Eric Bigger: Rachel Lindsay Made a Mistake by Choosing Bryan Abasolo!

Does anyone else feel like they’re still recovering from Rachel Lindsay’s decision on the Bachelorette finale? 

That final breakup was every bit as brutal as we’d been told.

We have to remember that there was another person involved: Eric Bigger. He had a much closer perspective to everything that was going on and, well, he has his own reasons for thinking that Rachel made the wrong choice.

Eric Bigger seemed to slip a lot of people’s minds towards the end of the season.

It isn’t because he isn’t handsome or charming or a great contestant on The Bachelorette.

No, it was about context and chemistry.

Peter Kraus seemed like he was such a perfect suitor for Rachel Lindsay, so he got a lot of attention.

Bryan Abasolo seemed like he was just telling Rachel what she wanted to hear — but Rachel seemed like she was eating it up.

(And, clearly, she did)

So Bryan got plenty of attention.

Who was left?


Charming, handsome Eric who made it to the final three but wasn’t nearly as polarizing.

But even if a lot of fans couldn’t really see him with Rachel, we absolutely want to hear what he has to say about Rachel’s final choice.

On a podcast interview, Eric Bigger reveals his thoughts about Rachel Lindsay and the big finale:

“Honestly, from watching the show last night for the first time, I don’t think she picked the right man in that moment.”

You know how sometimes things don’t come across on camera?

Like, older phones can’t take a decent picture of the moon.

Sometimes you see someone really hot but they just look “reasonably attractive” over camera.

(You can be hot without being photogenic, folks)

Not everything comes across over the screen … and from what Eric is saying, that was the case with Bryan and Rachel.

“Prior to seeing the show, I always thought Bryan was the guy for her once I left.”

We should note that Eric likes Bryan a lot, which is more than we can say for a lot of fans.

And there was more:

“I love him … but I felt bad for him. It seemed like he was a rebound.”

Well, the proposal came the day after an epic, tear-filled breakup … so that’s literally true.

“I could be wrong, but that’s what it looked like in my eyes and maybe the feelings they had for each other is different from what I see. But man, it was tough.”


Eric then offered his own analysis of Rachel and her motivations:

“Rachel put herself in a bind from saying ‘I want a proposal.’ So she held herself accountable in a place where I think it was pride.”

He explains what he means.

“Her pride wouldn’t let her not do what she wanted to do and that was she wanted a proposal and Peter didn’t want that. So if it wasn’t a proposal, then you’re out, which I get.”

She went into this to get the man and relationship that she wanted.

But she may have missed out on the man she really wanted by choosing a relationship that would fit her imagined timeline.

“Sometimes it’s hard, it’s really hard. She made her decision and she’s off to the races, but I just think if she never would’ve said, ‘I want a proposal,’ and made that the priority, she would’ve been okay.”

Don’t let your expectations box you into a corner that you can’t get out of, folks.

And speaking of people whose hasty words might force them into a corner:

You might be thinking that you can’t concentrate on The Bachelorette and its aftermath when there’s a looming threat of nuclear war. 

For us, though, we think that concentrating on the stuff that you normally care about is the key to not losing your mind when the world is frightening.

(A lesson taught by the aftermath of 9/11)

So yes, let’s keep talking about whether or not Peter Kraus should be the next Bachelor.

(He should)

Let’s talk about how how Rachel Lindsay’s planning her wedding already and hope that she gets the ceremony on camera.

Let’s keep caring about stuff like eclipses and reality shows and video games and what restaurant’s opening around the corner because that’s how we keep being people.


Paola Mayfield: Topless Pics Were a Mistake, But…

Paola Mayfield may star on 90 Day Fiance.

But she’s clashed with her husband over the past several months for photos Mayfield starred in last year that likely caused her to also star in the fantasies of men around the globe.

Or at least men around the globe who watched Mayfield on the aforementioned TLC reality series and have a clue who she is.

The aspiring fitness blogger and model posed for a racy pictorial back in 2016, angering husband Russ at the time because he was raised in a conservative household in Oklahoma.

Paola, meanwhile, hails from Colombia.

She has always been far more open with her body, but she gets now why Russ was upset about all the skin showed a little while back.

“I’m getting more into fitness and that requires to be a little bit more revealing, something that my husband is not that happy [about],” Paola told Fox News, adding:

“But he’s getting to the point [of] trying to understand my position that I’m not doing it just because I want to expose myself.”

Mayfield goes on to say she isn’t trying to be Kim Kardashian here.

Her goal is not to gain social media followers by randomly taking off layers of clothing; she wants to build an actual career. 

“[It’s not] like, ‘Look at me! I’m half naked.’ No, it’s because I actually [want to] motivate people to change their lifestyle,” Mayfield explains.

Russ says it was difficult to watch his wife strip down on the previous season of 90 Day Fiance. It made him feel uncomfortable.

But he’s also trying he hardest to see things from Paola’s point of view.

“She’s promoting herself through her workouts and also through her modeling to show all the hard work she has done for her body and I’m very proud of that,” Russ tells Fox.

On this week’s return of 90 Day Fiance, Mayfield cut her hair and dyed it blonde after her agent said such a change would help her take the next professional step.

She also spoke to friends in Colombia who made it clear they don’t think she and Russ make for a very good match.

With Russ still in Oklahoma and Paola in Florida, questions remain over how much of a future they really have as a married couple.

“I think I learned my lesson, but I think that was the biggest fight that we had,” Mayfield says in this interview about her topless shoot.

“I wasn’t expect[ing] to do that either. It just, I don’t know, it happened so fast, but it was classy. I wasn’t showing any… showing too much, of course.

“It was sexy but yeah, oopsie.”

Russ is glad she sees it this way.

There’s only so much public nudity he can handle from his wife.

“There is a point that I like to make sure she keeps it classy,” he says, explaining:

“I come from Oklahoma and I’ve got my conservative morals and values and I’m not going to change her and she is who she is and that’s what I love about her.”

“I’m all yours,” Paola jumped in to say at this point in the Fox News discussion.

But for how much longer? That’s the question in the minds of 90 Day Fiance fans everywhere.


Leah Messer: Marrying Jeremy Calvert Was the Biggest Mistake of My Life!

You really have to give it up for Leah Messer — girl has come a long way.

Sure, she still has a little scandal every now and then. Every once in a while she'll get some hate for being "too thin," or people will get angry with her for putting too much makeup on her daughters.

But when you remember that not that long ago, Leah was losing custody of her twins because she was unable to get them to school on time or feed them breakfast, it doesn't seem all that bad, does it?

Yes, Leah has really grown up a lot lately, and she proves that in this new Teen Mom 2 clip.

In the clip, she meets up with Jeremy Calvert to exchange their daughter. Jeremy takes to opportunity to let her know about his engagement to Brooke Wehr.

It's a little awkward at first — Jeremy's obviously hoping to get a big reaction from Leah — but she just tells him congratulations and that she's happy for him.

Then she tells Jeremy to make sure he wants to spend the rest of his life with Brooke, since Brooke would be their kid's stepmother. It sounds a little strange at first, but hey, Leah had two failed marriages by the tender age of 23.

If anyone can talk about being sure about getting hitched, it's her.

She tells him to be careful since he's "a very irrational person," and he gets angry. But we all know she's not wrong.

Jeremy starts to tell her that she's irrational, and she agrees — she tells him that "we were very irrational, and that was the biggest mistake of my life."

See Leah give it to Jeremy in the clip below:
