Real Housewives of OC Bravo Blogs by BB
As of Tuesday evening, only three OC blogs had been posted; two by regular cast members and one by a former (or maybe future?) cast member.
Heather Dubrow’s boring blog:
True to form, Heather’s blog is all about Her Royal Heatherness (as Stars so aptly refers to her). She hopes us regular folks appreciate the behind the scenes look at Hollywood and what it’s like to be on set. Thank you so much Heather! I had no idea it was like that. What a learning experience that was for me! What a glamorous life you lead!
She then goes on to describe how funny it is at her house in the mornings getting everyone up and how happy she was that Terry finally came through for her so her week on the Hot in Cleveland set was less stressful. I’m not sure what Heather was expecting, but she wants us to know how warm and welcoming the cast and crew were.
Heather is very disappointed that Gretchen and Slade, who don’t even have children to consider, showed up late for the taping of the show and then had the nerve to get up several times to use their cell phones. Especially since Heather left her kids and went to Vegas to support Gretchen’s launch of her highly successful singing career. Heather expected the same from them. I agree with Heather and would be interested to know what kind of excuse Gretchen is going to have for it. Hopefully, Heather’s not going to let her off the hook that easily.
Heather, being the gracious person she is, decides not to bring the matter up on HER night of all nights because she would never want to cause drama during social occasions with her friends (cough, cough – BOWGATE!).
Heather’s all of a sudden perfect husband (this week at least) makes the perfect speech to cap off Heather’s special night where it was all about Heather.
Heather ends her blog giving an acceptance speech (because she knows it’s the only chance she’s ever going to get to make one) by thanking all those who made her 5 minutes of fame that night possible – the cast and crew of Hot in Cleveland and the Bravo cast and crew. Can’t forget those who are paying her the big bucks because she can’t be making that much from her acting gigs.
All in all, nothing special or controversial about Heather’s blog. It was a real snoozefest.
Lydia McLaughlin’s even more boring blog:
I thought Heather’s blog was pretty boring, but Lydia’s is even worse. She thought it was cool being in the audience watching Heather. She didn’t know Lauri’s ties ran so deep with some of the current OC cast (not sure I’m buying that one). She talks about how much she loves her mom but the pot smoking is still a conflict between them (I wonder how long they are going to drag this storyline out). She loved seeing Terry’s growth in his role as a father. She thinks the juxtaposition between Heather and Alexis’ acting careers is interesting and they may not be so different after all. I agree with Lydia on this one. Both Heather and Alexis are very pretentious and LOVE to be the center of attention. At Heather’s celebration dinner, she couldn’t stand seeing the tension between Vicki and Tamra so she purposely made them have to address it. In Lydia’s world, there should be no conflict. Everybody HAS to kiss and make up. That’s the rule according to Lydia. Oh, and Lydia has something very original going on – her own jewelry line. How unique!
Lauri Peterson’s Believe it or Not blog:
Lauri and George only have two non-adult children at home and they are moving into the empty-nest phase of their lives, so Lauri has more time to goof off. I only believe about half of what Lauri describes as her blissful life with George.
Lauri’s only seen her former castmates in passing over the last four years, but Tamra, out of the blue, asks her to help pick out a wedding band for Eddie. Tamra didn’t ask her BFF Heather or her other BFF Gretchen. Tamra asked Lauri Peterson. I AM SO NOT BELIEVING IT! That was a Bravo set-up if ever there was one.
When Lauri met up with Tamra at Nuggets and Carats, she wasn’t sure whether she should address the past with Tamra or not. LIAR, LIAR PANTS ON FIRE! She knew exactly what they were going to discuss before she even got there.
Lauri gives Brian at Nuggets and Carats the obligatory shout out because he cleaned and replaced a small diamond in her ring for free while she was there. This for that.
Lauri then goes into what she did with her first and second wedding rings. The first she gave to her daughter because part of it belonged to her grandmother and she wanted to keep it in the family. The second she took to the pawn shop because she was broke, only to find out it was a fake, so she was still broke. I believe it.
I find it funny that Lauri doesn’t mention that she totally threw her old boss and friend Vicki under the bus. I guess she didn’t want to get slammed in the comments section now that she’s seen the backlash Tamra has gotten. It didn’t quite work though.
If Lauri comes back as a regular to the OC, she needs to realize she will be dealing with viewers who are much wiser to the ways of Bravo manipulation than a few years ago. She will need to wear her big girl panties or stay home.
If this is best these OC women can do with their blogs, then why bother? I can’t stop yawning. If there are any later OC blog postings, I’ll shall return.
