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. 

What are your thoughts on Kelly sucking the face of a man at a dinner table?

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.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 2 Recap: Vicki Gunvalson Did WHAT?

Battle lines were drawn on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 2, and we’re surprised to report that Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson are officially on the outs. 

No, we’re not talking about one of them getting mad about not being invited out for some cocktails. In fact, Kelly threw Vicki out of her house at one point during this hour. It was wild, so let’s get to it. 

Vicki was the woman who helped set up Kelly’s ex-husband, Michael Dodd with his current girlfriend. As if that was not bad enough, Vicki had even indulged in double dates with the new couple. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know that Kelly and Vicki have been like two peas in a pod since laying eyes on each other a few years back. 

So, this is a pretty big deal. Vicki went behind her BFFs back and failed to tell her about it. That’s pretty low, but is that not what Vicki has done since the show debuted? 

Even after all these years, it’s hard to imagine her changing her ways. Despite being back in good graces with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador, Vicki needed a storyline to remain relevant. 

“Kelly’s dating, she’s fine,” Gunvalson said defending herself when the truth came out.

“She said [to Michael], ‘I want you to find somebody else. I want you to date.’ … The fact is, he’s moving on. And if I’ve got some single girlfriends who want to meet her ex-husband, so what? It has nothing to do with Kelly. She’s the one who dumped him!”

“You’re my friend,” Kelly told Vicki. “I’m getting all these text messages and everything that you hooked up Michael, and you didn’t tell me? … You’ve gone out with them a couple times? And you never told me? Why would you not tell me?”

But Vicki was not ready to accept that she was the one who set them up. Yes, OG Vicki is back. 

“I had a BBQ four months ago. My friend was there, and he was there. And I didn’t hook up anybody,” she explained. “They communicated afterward and I was out. I didn’t know where it was going and it was none of my business.”

“I thought he would tell you. It’s his responsibility to tell you,” Gunvalson said of Michael. “Don’t blame me. You take that up with Michael.”

Um, what? 

Are best friends not supposed to communicate about, like, everything? 

Vicki then uttered her stupidest come back yet:

“I’m not telling you. I’m not going to tell you. I’m never going to tell you. … It is not my fault that your husband is dating somebody. I care so much about you that I didn’t tell you.”

“Are you kidding me? Anybody would say that’s f—– up. Anybody would say,” Kelly yelled upon hearing this sub-par excuse. 

“That breaks my heart. That actually breaks my heart,” she said. “You tell me that you’re friends with them? You’ve gone on double dates? That’s wrong.”

Hurricane Gunvalson then shocked Kelly to the very core. 

“Oh Kelly, don’t make this drama about you. You don’t love your husband. He’s dating somebody else. So what?”

“You want to do stuff with drama? I’m out! You want to do drama because Steve and Michael said let’s go out to dinner?” she continued, before screaming.

“You are causing problems where there doesn’t need to be any. Stop it. Stop it. Who cares who he goes out with!”

“Obviously you are not my friend. You know what, I don’t roll with girls like that,” Kelly barked back while fighting tears.

“You know what, Vicki, why don’t you just leave. You know, you’re just not my friend. That’s it. You’re not my friend. … I’m just; I’m done with you.

“I didn’t hook him up. Kelly, you’re out of line,” Vicki yelled as she got ready to leave.

“I’m out. I don’t get talked to like that. F— her.”

“I think Kelly’s overreacting,” she told viewers. “I think Kelly’s still in love with Michael.”

Yes, Vicki Gunvalson is once again, at the center of the drama. It only took two episodes. 

While Vicki was burning bridges with Kelly, she was trying to get back in Eddie’s good books. You know the man she claimed was gay. 

She started this off by sending some food to the house after his surgery, before showing up uninvited to try and help him build a bridge to get over it. 

Eddie accepted, and they moved on from this needless drama. Go figure. 

The rest of the episode was subdued, but we got to meet Gina Kirschenheiter aka the one who just divorced her husband!

If we did not already know about the parting of ways, we would probably have had suspicions after Gina’s entrance. 

We got to see her home life, her kids, but nothing of her husband, Matt. All of the wedding pictures showed nothing of him, but much of Gina. 

We learned that he lived in Los Angeles through the week and returned home at the weekend. That’s hella odd, but could that have played a part in the relationship breaking down?

We have no idea, but we’ll surely find out.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Taglines Revealed!

The Real Housewives of Orange County is back for Season 13, and each Housewife — new and old — has her own tagline.

Some of these catchphrases are better than others, but we'll let you be the judge. Mostly.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you can see all of the new (and old) drama unfold.

And while some fans are nervous about Season 13, perhaps these taglines will offer them a hint of what's to come.

Take a look:

1. Season 13 has begun!

The real housewives of orange county season 13
Season 12 was considered to be (mostly) lackluster, so these taglines may give fans hope for excitement to come in Season 13.

2. Vicki Gunvalson

Vicki gunvalson for season 13
Her tagline is: “The fun bus is leaving, and this time I’m in the driver’s seat.”

3. The … Fun Bus?

Vicki is a grandmother. She’s been starring on RHOC since before some of its viewers were born. She doesn’t have to sound cool to be cool.

4. Shannon Beador

Shannon beador for season 13
Shannon’s is: “Some people say I’m too much to handle. I say, I’m just getting started.”

5. Is "too much to handle" a reference to her weight?

Shannon gained a little weight before Season 12, and worked hard to lose it. In the process, she also shed the dead weight of David Beador — which is probably what she means about just getting started.

6. Kelly Dodd

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

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 1 Recap: The Next Chapter

What do you get when the ladies are getting along a little too nice? 

A lame show that is filled with boring scenes, of course. 

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 1, we picked up several months later. By that, we mean months after the ladies patched up their friendships and became boring. 

Tamra Judge has been through the mill, and she was determined to put the past behind her. However, she had to come to terms with the fact that her husband, Eddie, was not as well as he should be. 

Atrial Fibrillation is the name of his mystery illness, and being a trainer, it meant he could not do the things that make him happy. If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know that Eddie is not someone who likes to sit around. 

Whether he’s out kissing dudes while his wife is claiming everything is all fine and dandy, we think it’s fair to say this condition is going to change his life for good. 

We kid about the dude part, but the rumors do not seem to be dying down, so we’re inclined to believe something is not right in the relationship. 

In any case, Tamra worried about Eddie’s future, especially because the slightest thing could render him unfit to do just about anything. 

“He was freaked out for a minute, and he was like, ‘I just keep thinking about the mortality rate,’ ” Tamra tells her mother, fighting the tears.

And I’m like, ‘What?’ And he’s like, ‘That’s not how I want to die.’”

“He’s not going to die,” Tamra’s mother responded, clearly trying to comfort her daughter who was wailing uncontrollably. While the show has only covered one of the surgeries so far, we know that there are four more to be covered. 

“Eddie was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation about three months ago,” she said in the episode. 

“He had noticed his heart rate was getting up to 240, 250, 260 beats a minute when he was working out — which is dangerous. And he needs heart surgery. So they’re going in and cauterizing part of his heart.”

“He’s a machine,” she said. “And his body is letting him down at the age of 45.”

The bizarre thing about all of it was that the couple was moving into a new home that was still under construction ahead of the surgery. The key to recovery from surgery is plenty of bed rest. 

As for Tamra’s relationship with Vicki Gunvalson, it was still on the road to recovery, but Eddie stopped short of inviting Vicki to the housewarming party. 

Vicki has been vocal about how she feels about Eddie, claiming that he’s gay and just generally being a sucky person. But all of that is in the past, but Eddie said that Vicki would need to do some apologizing if she wants to snag an invite. 

Shannon Beador was well away from David and downsized to a rented house. However, she struggled with taking her wedding ring off, claiming that it did not only represent her marriage but her life with her children and other key life events. 

Tamra helped her realize that she needed to take it off, and a hilarious scene ensued when the pair tried to yank the ring off. They tried soap, but they ultimately settled on cutting the finger off because the ring was stuck. 

Nope, it was not as fun as that. Shannon got rid of the ring and claimed to feel “naked.”

We also learned that Kelly Dodd had moved to a two bedroom apartment and was loving life. In all honesty, it’s probably the smallest house we’ve ever laid eyes on in the franchise. 

But Kelly oozed energy as she spoke about her post-marital life. When she met up with Vicki, they chatted about dating, and Kelly was visibly ready to find someone to love again. 

The hour concluded with the ladies attending a roping event that allowed them to establish their trust in one another.

Vicki made a passive aggressive comment about everything that happened to her, and it looked like Shannon and Tamra were going to cut her rope and kick her off the platform at one point. 

Aside from that, everyone was very subdued, and that’s not what we tune into this series for.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Promo: Meet the Newbies!

In the OC, the line between love and hate, between loyalty and betrayal, completely disappears.

So teases the following trailer for the longest-running franchise on Bravo, as The Real Housewives of Orange County gets set to kick off Season 13 in just about a month.

Loyal fans of the series, of course, are aware that Meghan Edmonds and Lydia McLaughlin have left the program; either of their own volition or because they were fired, depending on who you ask.

In their place, executives have cast Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson, both of whom you can meet in the following photo then, of course, in the following trailer.

As for the women we've gotten to know and sort of love over the past few years?

On upcoming episodes, Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador will be working together to attempt and rebuild their friendship.

SPOILER ALERT, however: it will not be easy.

Adding intrigue and drama to the situation will be the fact that Kelly Dodd and Beador are both single and figuring out how to live life post-divorce.

("You know why divorce is expensive?" one Housewife says at one point. "Because it's worth it.")

Vicki will be hoping and praying that her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, will finally commit to her full-time, while Tamra will be concerned about her husband's health.

Many tears will be shed.

Many voices will be raised.

Many lame saying will be uttered and many women will fall flat on their faces, apparently.

As for the new faces?

Simpson is an Ohio native who works her way up to be a lawyer and party planner.

She has three kids of her own under the age of five, along with a pair of stepdaughters from her husband Shane’s previous marriage. So she has A LOT on her plate and isn't sure what to do with her life next.

Kirschenheiter is from Long Island and is somehow ALSO a mother of three kids under five.

She “keeps her expectations low and her patience high,” Bravo explained in the press release, as her husband works in Los Angeles during the week, often leaving her on her own with the kid.

Where will all of this lead?

There's just one way to start to find out.

Check out the trailer below in anticipation of the show's July 16 return.

The Real Housewives of Orange County: New Cast Revealed!

Being a Real Housewife means fame and one hell of a paycheck, but there’s a high turnover rate between seasons.

We’ve already reported who’s out in The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s latest cast shakeups — but who’s in?

Take a look!

We have new information about the RHOC cast, and it’s not about Shannon Beador’s divorce.

RadarOnline reports that Emily Moore Simpson is one of the new additions to the cast for this new season.

Emily Moore Simpson has actually been featured on The Real Housewives of Orange County before — or, at least, her company has.

She and her sister-in-law run a party-planning business, and they have a little “as featured on” banner on their site.

Emily is also a licensed attorney.

Apparently this erstwhile Ohio girl is a hit with some of her new costars, as RadarOnline reports that “Shannon and Kelly get along with Emily marvelously.”

Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd are, of course, part of the returning cast.

Gina Kirschenheiter is another new name.

She’s a little enigmatic, even for a newcomer.

But RadarOnline reports that she’s no stranger to the cast.

“Gina and Tamra have been friends for a very long time, and Tamra recruited her on the show.”

It’s also been whispered that Gina’s friend, Tatiana Beene, will also be joining the cast, but that isn’t even a little bit confirmed.

Lydia McLaughlin has quit the show … again. That’s her version, anyway.

She says that she quit because she can only handle one season at a time without feeling overwhelmed. Which is interesting, since rumor had suggested that her name was on Bravo’s chopping block.

Meghan King Edmonds quit RHOC, too.

She said that it’s because she’s pregnant and because IVF has really done a number on her. That may be so.

But there was a report that she got fired for trying to use her pregnancy to leverage more money out of producers. That would appear to have backfired.

Finally, Peggy Sulahian was ousted from the series.

It turns out that being an infamous homophobe who allegedly tried to have her own (gay) brother dragged out of their father’s funeral didn’t win her a lot of fans.

Also, she just did not make for good television.

We have to wonder how these new additions will shake up the dynamics on the show.

Shannon and Kelly are apparently really hitting things off with Emily.

And Tamra is already close to Gina.

Given the reports that Shannon and Tamra are feuding as part of the fallout of Shannon’s divorce, we could be seeing new Real Housewife factions forming already.

And how will Vicki Gunvalson, who is definitely returning, fit into all of this?

Technically, these new additions to the cast have yet to be officially confirmed.

Bravo has declined to comment on casting “rumors.”

But we should mention that Gina Kirschenheiter’s Instagram, which only goes back a few days — which you might expect from someone who created her Instagram in anticipation of becoming a reality star — features a hint.

Beside a makeup-free selfie, she wrote:

“First post as the ‘real gina kirschenheiter.'”

That strikes many as a major clue, if not an outright confirmation.
