Real Housewives of Orange County; Ep. 17 – “Monkey Business”

Costa Rica pt. 2, river rafting, and a breakdown. Alexis flees the table after the women beat up on her. She doesn’t want to be around anyone and would rather weep alone. But some of the ladies come after her, like Vicki and Gretchen. Sorry, Gretchen, you’re not allowed into the room. “I don’t think Alexis is pretentious. I think she’s a great girl. She’s drop-dead gorgeous and they’re all jealous.” Vicki, tell them how you really feel. I mean, really. Do you actually feel [...]

Real Housewives of New Jersey – Ep. 6: “Uncivil Union”

Coming out, bad jokes, wedding preparation, and therapy talk. It’s a typical day at the Guidice residence: the girls are running about the place and there’s yelling. Oh Milania. The little cutie that spells trouble is pestering big sis, Gia. What’s going on with Gia lately? Her angry eyes, temper tantrum, and blow up at Jacqueline’s Field Day caught everyone off guard, including me. Teresa serves her daughter some waffles and tries to find out why Gia’s so upset over what’s going on with her [...]

Real Housewives of Orange County – Ep. 16: “Rumble in the Jungle”

Costa Rica, zip-lining, intervention, and a “white elephant.” Before the O.C. ladies leave for Costa Rica, Tamra admits to throwing Terry under the bus. Over dinner and drinks on a double couple night, Tamra tells Heather and Terry about her confrontation with Alexis and that she blurted Terry called her fake. T Terry nearly chokes on his drink, but all is quickly forgiven as long as Tamra backs Heather up during a planned intervention for Alexis on the trip. Done. Alexis packs two suitcases full [...]

Real Housewives of Orange County – Ep. 15 “Scream Therapy”

Marriage, name change, and therapy. After the heated argument with her daughter, Vicki tries to put all energy and focus into work the next day. Brooks brings coffee and offers more Brooks-isms. “She said some truthful things from her perspective.” Oh Brooks, if only you knew what all Briana actually said. So maybe he is an opportunist, truthfully speaking from Briana’s perspective. Maybe Vicki’s relationship is unhealthy, truthfully speaking from Briana’s perspective. Therapists definitely bring in the bucks these days. Now Gretchen wants to take [...]

Real Housewives of Orange County – Ep. 14: “Happily Never After”

Puppies, princesses, rings, and relationship talk. Alexis prepares a Puppy-Princess party for her twin girls’ birthday. With Heather’s guidance, Slade goes ring shopping for Gretchen. As in an engagement ring to show that Gretch is more than just a girlfriend of three years to him. Let’s see, she’s a cash cow, hot commodity, and jack-of-all-trades. A ring might represent all of that. He has to be getting a ring that’s bling-ed out to the fullest. Oh shoot! Slade’s finances are in a bad place right [...]

Real Housewives of New Jersey – Ep. 4 “Drowning Pool”

Work-outs, venting, and childishness. Teresa is pushing friends and family farther away. Caroline is convinced the woman is insane and completely jealous of Melissa, a younger, beautiful, better version of Teresa. Kathy, Teresa’s cousin, has not yet cut ties, but rather bites her tongue. Whereas her husband, Richie, has had it with Teresa. Working out and venting frustrations go hand-in-hand. So while Joe Guidice pumps some weights at home, Teresa tells what happened at the Summer Solstice party. “I know so many men who went [...]

Real Housewives of Orange County, Ep. 13 – Whine & Cheese

Real Housewives of Orange County, Ep. 12 – “Bombs Away”

Apologies, dropping bombs, and “Fever.” Gretchen struts onstage in her hot little outfit and performs “Fever.” As I said before, Gretchen is solid in the looks department. Fab outfit, hair, and make-up. The vocals were not the best, and I’m being polite by even saying that. Vicki isn’t impressed: “How can she be onstage?” Alexis makes excuses for Gretchen along the lines of she didn’t get all the practice she could get. Heather comments to Terry, “She did a great job.” I don’t know how [...]

Caroline accompanies her daughter, Lauren, to the doctor’s office about growing insecurities over her weight. [...]
