Yes I do hate Jill Zarin but I’m not too fond of Vicki Gunvalson these days either, she really ripped her husband apart on her television show over the past 6 years. Vicki has said things to her husband like, “you’re Vicki’s husband, I’m sure you have a name but whatever!” and the love tank nonsense was ridiculous last season, this year she talks about having flat tires with no spare. Her car metaphors are getting a bit old and making no sense.
According to E! Online Vicki regrets all of the things she said about Donn on the show:
“I hurt Donn a lot by exposing all of the things that I did,” Vicki tells E!Online. “Which I never meant to do. The unfortunate part is I started talking to Tamra [Barney] in confidence, and you tend to forget that there’s a microphone on and she’s like, ‘What’s wrong with you, what’s wrong with you, what’s wrong with you? You’re not yourself.’ And I just started unloading. And the cameras caught it”
Vicki’s at a Crossroads: http://bravo.ly/j0wE0C via @bravo
I’m sorry, I don’t buy any of this. First of all Vicki has been on Bravo’s Real Housewives for 6 years now, don’t tell me she doesn’t know when those camera’s are rolling and the microphones are live. Vicki tries to imply that she forgot this was all being filmed for the show, and she thinks people are going to believe that?
Second, she seems to be trying to blame Tamra here for asking her “what’s wrong?”. Well of course Tamra is going to try to get you to dish about your marriage, she did enough of it last season and wants to get her own back. Tamra may not come out and say it but I think she blames Vicki a bit for the failure of her marriage. Vicki certainly stuck her nose into Tamra’s marriage and now Tamra is turning the tables and trying to do the same. Vicki should have been smarter than to take the bait. It’s funny though that while Vicki says Tamra kept asking her “what’s wrong?” we never see Tamra ask that at all.
Finally, if you’re going to put your life on television and you find yourself going through a divorce, it can be done without the cameras rolling, Luann did it, we did not see Luann and her ex-husband arguing, fighting or even the break up email that Lulu received. It doesn’t have to happen on-screen and Vicki didn’t have to talk about it to Tamra or anyone else on-screen. I would have had more respect for Vicki had she just owned it, she could have said, “I talked about it on-screen and now I regret doing that” but instead she tries to blame others and say she didn’t realize what she was doing. What a cop-out!
What Vicki doesn’t ever talk about is all of the reports and photos of her flirting, kissing and hanging all over other men while she’s away from her husband. Vicki needs constant reassurance that she’s pretty and desirable, maybe Donn got tired of how needy this woman is. Donn isn’t the mushy, romantic kind of guy but we did see the love that he felt for his wife during their vow renewal ceremony. Donn was pleasantly surprised by what Vicki had planned and didn’t hesitate for one minute to show his love and devotion. I think Vicki simply expects too much and would never be satisfied by Donn Gunvalson.
I hope this couple does what is best for them, it seems to me that Donn would be happier with another woman or even alone. This is who Vicki is, we watched her with her mother asking “Do you love me?” Her mother doesn’t seem to be the overly warm and cozy type but it is obviously something that Vicki needs, possibly because she didn’t get it as a child. I think Vicki is going to find that the grass is always greener, I think she believes that if she were only a single woman, all these men she flirts with in bars and clubs would be trying to romance her. She’s going to realize very quickly that they simply want a quickie and they’ll be done with the psudo-celebrity. Vicki talks about the bible and how God doesn’t like divorce, what a hypocrite!
Vicki’s revealing that she and Donn hadn’t had sex in over two years was just wrong! She had to be lying somewhere because she told viewers that she and Donn did have sex while in Turks and Caicos for their vow renewal and that was less than a year ago. In the video that Vicki refers to, Tamra Barney seems to be encouraging Vicki to get a divorce. Instead of exploring some of the things that could save their marriage or encouraging Vicki to go to counseling or in any way supporting the marriage, Tamra says things like, “do you want to just exist?” she’s very negative about the marriage working. I guess misery really does love company. There is no doubt that Tamra encouraged divorce for Vicki and Donn. Tamra is pure evil.
Yes I do hate Jill Zarin but I really, really hate Tamra Barney, she has been vicious and horrible all season, another example of that is the way that she attacks Alexis as often as she can. During this extra scene from Bravo, Tamra asks Peggy about the Texas trip and they can’t seem to say enough bad things about Alexis and her husband Jim:
Tamra has dumped her husband, she sucked him dry financially and walked away with her Rolex watch and her three children by Simon Barney. Tamra doesn’t have the sense to handle her relationship with new boyfriend Eddie Judge with a little class and discretion instead of the in your face, sex in the tub and constant making out that Tamra has shown on-screen this season. It just shows what absolute trash this woman is, I feel badly for her children. Who acts like this on national television when they have little kids at home?
Look for more of Tamra’s trashy behavior in the season finale. (As a side note, that ugly red lipstick makes her look even more like a trashy bitch!)
The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 6 – Tamra is About to Blow Up on Jeana – Video – Bravo TV Official Site http://t.co/7850UgX
Tamra has befriended the dull and boring Peggy and her husband this season which seems to be simply to stick it to Alexis and Jim. Last season Tamra said she liked Alexis and now without explanation she is bashing her and calling her “Jesus Barbie” and laughing at her financial situation. (Tamra has short-term memory loss, last season she was upset with Vicki for criticizing her home’s short sale situation)
Peggy sticks her nose in where it doesn’t belong in the finale when she tells Jeana that she should apologize to Tamra because Tamra is upset. Peggy has obviously made this her last ditch final desperate attempt to be relevant this season. Getting in between Tamra and Jeana certainly didn’t warm her in anyone’s heart.
Peggy was ready to latch on to anyone she could then begin to try to convince viewers that Alexis was jealous of her and trying to compete with her. Alexis isn’t likable this season either, she is just a little bit less annoying than Tamra and Peggy. Peggy has FAILED miserably as an Orange County Housewife and will most likely never been seen again. I never thought I’d miss Lynne Curtain. Peggy can join Quinn and the other forgettable Orange County Housewives over there in the corner. —>
Tamra has always had a problem with Gretchen, initially it seemed that Tamra was just jealous of Gretchen because she was younger and more beautiful than Tamra. Tamra always wanted to be known as the hottest housewife and unfortunately Gretchen’s arrival on the show threw Tamra off the top spot in her mind. Tamra may look good for her age and having four children but the minute she opens her mouth the ugly comes out.
Gretchen warned us at the beginning of the season that she was not going to take the verbal abuse from the other housewives, I was fully expecting a lot of verbal battles between Gretchen and Tamra or Vicki but in the end it seems as though they simply refused to film together. Gretchen seems to have befriended Alexis which is an unlikely duo but even more unlikely would be their men, Jim and Slade becoming friends.
Will Gretchen marry Slade Smiley? She has a whole long list of reasons not to marry him and just one reason to marry him, she loves him. Gretchen wants children and Slade has been surgically altered so that he can’t have children. Gretchen works to support her household and Slade has no job with a ton of debt including a growing child support responsibility. Rumor has it he will propose on the season finale at the annual season end party at Vicki’s house, will Gretchen ever agree to marry this man?
First Annual awards for the Real Housewives of Orange County:
Biggest and Most Horrible Evil Trashy Bitch : Tamra Barney (I could have added more adjectives too!)
Biggest Fake Cry Baby: Vicki Gunvalson (Vicki is the one who initiated this split, she treated Donn like crap for years, now we’re supposed to feel sorry for her?)
Most Indecisive Housewife: Gretchen Rossi (Should she marry Slade or should she dump Slade? Does anyone care anymore?)
Most Desperate, Pathetic Attempts be Popular: Peggy Tanous (Epic failure of a replacement housewife)
Biggest Hypocrite: Alexis Bellino (God will forgive Alexis for anything she does in contradiction to God’s law)
What awards would you give out to the Orange County Housewives?
There’s a rumor out there that Bravo is looking to replace all of the New York Housewives, that’s not a bad idea but they really should start in Orange County, replace them all I say!
I’m so tired of hearing about bankruptcy, short sales and foreclosures. Let’s get some Orange County Housewives who really do belong in Orange County. The final episode iincludes the scene that we’ve seen coming and been waiting for all season, Tamra argues with Jeana Keough and throws a glass of wine in her face. Jeana’s daughter Kara tweeted about it immediately after it happened letting viewers know it was coming and allowing Bravo to go ahead and include it in their promos.
A lot of people are on Tamra’s side here but I think anyone who torments the horrible Tamra is ok in my book. Jeana is typically a calming force, she doesn’t loose her temper or go off on anyone, it seems as though she tries to do the right thing in most cases. Tamra is a drama queen and seems to want to blame Jeana for items in the press.
We know that Simon talked to the press and quoted Jeana. Whether or not Jeana spoke to the press isn’t something Tamra can control no matter how hard she tries. Since Tamra has an entire show to get her side of the story out, Simon has the right to defend himself and if giving a press interview is how he chooses to go about it, more power to him. Tamra talked constantly about Simon all season, Tamra also knows that the press tends to twist words and take things out of context. Tamra really needs to let it go because in the end, no one really cares about Tamra or what she’s doing or saying. She’s low on the totem pole of Housewives and her trashy behavior ensures that she’ll never be on the level of Bethenny, Lisa Vanderpump or really any of the the other housewives.
Jeana may be a lot of things but she does have class and she does have grace and dignity putting her far above Tamra Barney. The “I’m up here and you’re down here” fits perfectly with Tamra and Jeana. Jeana was right last season when she talked about “where Tamra comes from”, I think it was Jeana’s attempt to remind us what Tamra said herself, “I’m a truck driver with tits”. Yes you are Tamra!
Perhaps Gretchen said it best in her blog:
Tamra has admitted that she does things before she thinks them through. Unfortunately it seems she does things that are best only for her at the time, and she does not always take into consideration how her actions can affect others in the long run, including her own children. Tamra certainly can run her mouth about everyone else and talk about what she thinks she knows about everyone else’s life, but then when someone does it to her, she all of a sudden expects others to have compassion for her. It’s like the boy that cried wolf.
I was flabbergasted when Tamra was so upset and expected Jeana to have some compassion towards her, since Tamra is the least compassionate person when it comes to how she affects others lives with her trash talking. Seems as if Tamra is finally getting a taste of her own medicine. She just always uses the lame excuse of, “I just speak the truth.” Whose truth? The world according to Tamra and the internet?
Well news flash, Tamra, Jeana was just speaking her truth too. She believed you were over dramatic and lied about Simon being abusive. The main difference between Jeana and Tamra to me is that when asked, Jeana gave an opinion regarding her personal interactions with Simon and Tamra based off the numerous times she spent with them and seeing them interact as a couple. Tamra on the other hand goes out of her way to sling accusations and spread gossip and rumors in a malicious and evil way, and she does so without having any real knowledge of the situation. Makes me wonder if Tamra will ever realize that she has done the exact same thing she was crying to Jeana about.
Gretchen, like Alex of New York explains the way she sees things and feels about things in detail and they make good sense. Everything Gretchen says about Tamra here is the truth, Tamra trash talks about all of the other Housewives yet when they say anything about her she gets a cease and desist letter from her attorney and throws a drink in their face. Jeana is friends with Simon, that’s the bottom line. Alexis and Jim remained friends with Simon and it really got to Tamra, I guess she thinks everyone should be on her side. I think she dumped him because the money ran out.
We haven’t heard a lot about the reunion taping other than it ran 10-hours and that every one of the women cried. Nothing shocking there. I don’t know what they really have to argue about, Peggy and Alexis will probably get into it over all the competition and jealous comments that Peggy made. It was pretty obvious that Peggy was simply trying to create drama where none existed to make herself relevant. Hopefully Alexis will call Peggy out.
Vicki and Tamra are buddies again so there should be no arguing there. Gretchen kept to herself this season, at least on screen. As you can see above Gretchen had no trouble blogging about the other housewives and giving her opinion on what is going on outside of her world. I’m sure they’ll go after Gretchen for her blogging.
I just can’t imagine what these women battled over for 10-hours, discussing a season that was really dull, a few trips thrown in but the trips excluded any drama for the most part. Vicki and Tamra went to Cabo, Gretchen invited all the ladies except Vicki and Tamra to San Antonio, Peggy and Tamra went to Vegas with their husbands.
I’m sure a large segment of the reunion will focus on Alexis’ fashion show and the comments that Gretchen made about Vicki being hospitalized that day. It seemed unlike Gretchen to make those comments on screen but learning some of the background of Vicki’s symptoms that didn’t make it on screen helped a bit. Apparently Vicki had these symptoms for a few months and really should have gone in to have it checked out long before the day of Alexis’ fashion show. I’m not sure how Gretchen knew that but the fact does remain that Vicki’s timing was a bit suspect.
Vicki texting to Tamra complete with photos of her IV also led many to believe that Vicki was creating drama. It was as if she felt the need to prove that she truly was ill by providing a photo of her IV. Who does that?
I’m actually looking forward to the finale of RHOOC, hopefully anyone who was Tamra’s fan will see what a horrible trashy..(insert your own adjective here) bitch she is. We’ll most likely get a two-part reunion show as always.

Mob Wives by Quincy IL
There was a replay of last week’s Sunday dinner party/knock down drag out brawl between Carla Facciolo and Renee Graziano. Just as Renee and Carla began to come to their senses Karen Gravano brought up the issue of Lee with Drita Davanzo so a second verbal battle began. This barrage resulted in a rehash of their past discussions, tears from Karen and a hug from Drita. Drita apologized for dating Karen’s ex-boyfriend marrying him and having two children, but in the interview she made sure we knew that Drita did not do anything wrong and its ancient history. (I agree with Drita.) Drita wonders if Karen’s new man doesn’t pound her hard enough so Karen is thinking about Lee, Drita’s man. Drita says that she would date and marry Lee again.
Carla and Renee share more about their fight in interviews. Carla wants Renee to mind her own business and Renee wants Carla to admit that her boyfriend is bad news, grabs women’s private parts and threatened Renee on a speaker phone where AJ, her son could hear. Carla thinks everyone is lying about her boyfriend.
Drita thinks this is insanity and everyone has gone bonkers.
Karen said in an interview that everyone’s blood was boiling. She described the fight as madness and bullshit. There is another break out of obscenities and threats. Carla calls Renee, a bitch. Carla said to Renee, “You are disgusting.” In an interview Carla said she doesn’t want Renee involved in her personal life and if Carla does have a problem then Carla would be a fool.
Eventually, there is a group hug, but dinner was never served. Karen expresses the wish that they become mature, civilized adult women. (Not a chance in hell.)
The next day, Drita shows up at Carla’s house for a discussion of the Sunday night dinner. Drita wished the fight would have stopped long enough for her to have eaten a noodle. Both women feel exhausted. Drita doesn’t like to see anyone upset, but if it ever happens again she is going to use an Uzi on them and she shows how she will use the gun to shoot them by giving the sound of an Uzi.
Renee and Karen meet for lunch a few days later. If Carla’s boyfriend bothers Renee again, she is going to tell Junior, her ex-husband and let him take care of Carla’s boyfriend. Junior is going to jail soon so he is staying with Renee and AJ. (He was on parole and was arrested for gambling.) Renee is lonely and not dating, but her relationship with Junior is platonic. Karen said that Renee needs to date and suggests online dating.
Carla is out on the time with Etty and Joe her friends from her time on Wall Street. Carla’s ex-husband Joe has been in prison for 6 years. Carla worked with him on Wall Street as his sale’s assistant and when Joe was fired for fraud, she was fired too. They were making good money. They had a nice house, dogs and twins. Then, he went to jail, she took everything in the divorce and now she has a new boyfriend who likes to grope her friends. Carla has trouble with Joe Joe, the male twin and she blames Joe who is in prison for the behavior of her son.
Drita goes to Renee’s house to help Renee create an online profile for dating. Renee calls the questions that the website asks the woman, an interrogation. Renee wants a normal man who won’t go to prison. Renee’s hobbies are writing to men in prison, visiting family in prison and baking cakes with files in them. Within 5 minutes, a European man who wears loafers and a sweat suit contacts Renee for a date by email. Renee feels he is too eager and that dating online is stressful. She calls the guy a name.
Karen’s daughter Karina has arrived from Phoenix. She said her daughter missed her and she changed. Her string bean has grown up and developed breasts.
Drita shows her 3 year old daughter the sexy pictures that she is sending to Lee in prison. Her daughter says that she likes her mom’s naked, pictures, but Drita says she is wearing a bathing suit. Having a husband in prison is like a long distance relationship and Drita has to keep the spark alive. She wants Lee to know that she is sacrificing for him, but she doesn’t want to live with guilt by going out with another guy.
Carla’s husband, Joe, will be sent to a half-way house in two weeks upon his release after 6 years in prison. Carla will help Joe by packing a duffle bag with his clothes and buying him new underwear. Joe said, “I’ve got nothing.” He has to get a job and then he can move in with friends.
Carla has a supper for Karen, Drita and all of their children. Carla prefers to eat out without children. Joe, one of Carla’s twins starts to fight with the girls. Drita takes him by the arm and sends him to his room. Carla makes no effort to discipline her son. The women toast to Joe being the free babysitter when he gets home.
Renee meets with her friend Nikole at Renee’s house for sushi and salad. Renee tells Nikole that she is not happy dating psychos. Renee jokes that she will move in with AJ and his wife to be the mother in law. Renee fears that she is never going to meet anyone. She deletes her online dating account.
Renee goes to visit Kelly, her therapist. Renee discusses online dating, past relationships, disrespect and wanting a normal life. The therapists tells Renee that she is not ready for online dating after Renee suggests that she has issues she still has to deal with.
Lee calls Drita and he likes the sexy photos. He wants to know who took the photos and she says a photographer in Brooklyn. Joe said the photographer must have had a good time. Drita wants to enjoy the phone conversations because she can’t go to dinner or a movie with Lee. Lee says he made mistakes, but Drita points out that their children are two things that they did right. Drita asks, “Can I trust him?” She answers her own question, “Probably not.” Then Drita states that she wants her family together.
Quincy and I are not the only ones working on Memorial Day, our friend to the North (Canada) Real City Housewife just posted a doozy! http://www.realitycrackhouse.com/2011/05/interview-with-an-insider-the-gorgas-and-the-giudices/
