Real Housewives of Orange County
Tamra Barney has earned a spin-off for her upcoming wedding to Eddie Judge. That was the whole point of Eddie proposing wasn’t it? To create a storyline. Tamra seriously can’t want to be married to a man that reminds her to flush the toilet. I’m sure she’s having second thoughts; she jumped right out of her marriage with Simon into Eddie’s arms. And I can’t imagine he’s happy about what he got himself into.
Then there is Gretchen. I would never in a million years have imagined that I’d feel sorry for Slade Smiley. Actually I don’t. I feel sorry for Slade’s ex having to watch Gretchen whine about how much his son’s medical emergency effected Gretchen’s ability to discuss having a baby with Slade. For those of you that don’t know – Slade’s 13-year old son Grayson suffers from brain tumors. In an attempt to bring him some relief last year he had surgery that led to complications. After many many months in the hospital Grayson was released to rehab. He’s doing better now, but still has a long way to go and every time Gretchen talks about how it affects HER I want to scream.
I have no idea if Vicki is still dating Brooks or not. I hope not. He gives me the creeps. Good thing Ryan has 24 hour surveillance on the house.
Heather Dubrow has an elevator in her house, a nanny, and a stick up her butt. She seems to think that raising four kids is the hardest job in the universe. Hello Heather, you are not getting any sympathy from this mom. Get rid of the nanny, rich husband and elevator and then we’ll talk.
Lydia got stuck with having a story line introducing her both as Alexis’s friend and as owning a magazine that wanted to feature Heather’s home. I suspect the latter was backup when Alexis threatened to quit. Lydia seems really young and I’ve got to wonder if they should replace Vicki with Brianna and get rid of Tamra, and to even out the ages a little. Just a thought.
Alexis who? Her scenes all seem like fillers. Eventually Tamra will start inviting her to things, so don’t feel too sorry for her.
