Catty County, The Real Housewives of the OC
Vicki came in this season sans Brooks. It's probably a good idea they broke up, someone who can lie about having cancer for attention is a zero. Double embarrassing for the couple, is Vicki helping him with this lie. She admitted on last season's reunion that she lied about him having cancer and she apologized for it. I'm sure the women were over it from there and ready to move on. Then into the first party they attend together this season, she starts saying she didn't lie about it again. Watching her lie about it over and over again made no sense, she had already apologized for lying about it. I don't blame the women for calling her a liar, because she is one. After she started lying again, the women were still trying to give her another chance. Vicki did go to each of them one on one and ask to be friends, they were nice enough to say yes. Vicki's new boyfriend doesn't seem to have much to say. He projects a aura that he's being paid to be there.
Tamra genuinely seems to want to be a good friend to the women. First off, we can't ignore what a hot grandma she is. There needs to be a euphemism for what to call a grandma like that. We already have MILF for hot moms, maybe G-MILF? When she was training for the best fit body competition, her trainer said she would inspire lots of women by doing it. She was right. Seeing her in her fifties and a grandma work out and win the competition (although she did bring the cameras with her) and win, was impressive. Tamra is proof you can still look good over fifty, she's a goddess. She does like to stir the pot with gossip though. The other women are either on camp Vicki or camp Tamra. You have to be on one or the other to secure your spot on the new season, you can't be out in the cold, the show will cut you like a knife if so. Throughout the season when Tamra agrees to befriend Vicki, Shannon and Heather get so mad and jealous, what a bunch of crazy trains.
Meghan is the one who introduced Kelly to the group. Her story line was her wanting to get pregnant, which she did. We find out that she'll have a baby girl. Her excitement to be a first time mommy was super cute. Her husband on the other hand, well, let's just say he didn't seem that into it. His yawning at the doc's office during the ultra scan, being told on speaker phone that he would have one child vs. two, because he was too busy playing golf and his general I don't give a f attitude. She can't understand why he's like that, that's the hilarious part. Her relationship with the women changed quite a bit. She went from camp Tamra to camp Vicki by the end of the season. She kept saying she wasn't friends with Vicki, yet there she was aligning herself with Vicki's number one, Kelly. I do like that Meghan stuck with her friend Kelly in the end. Had Kelly not been apologetic about her behavior, I bet it would have been a different story. Meghan saw that Kelly wants change and is supportive of her during her difficult time. They show Meghan at home in St. Louis with her parents and her sister. Her sister is another tall, pretty blonde. I hope Meghan makes it back next season.
The season ended with updates on the lives of the women. Vicki's daughter moved ten minutes away from her, which she is super happy about and according to the Bravo blogs, she's been diagnosed with lupus. Tamra is still with Eddie and she and Vicki no longer speak. It looks like Meghan had her baby and is thinking of moving back to St. Louis. Kelly and her husband are still together, Heather moved into her new house and Shannon is settling into her rental house, which looks pretty nice by the water. It's not over though of course! Now we get to watch them argue for three more episodes. The main topic will be why is Vicki still lying about Brooks not having cancer and now lying about Shannon's husband being a wife beater, why do Meghan and Vicki like Kelly and why are Shannon and Heather such mean girls. Clearly these women do not like each other, forcing them to be friends and then filming their interactions is what makes Bravo TV what it is, Drama. If you watch and have read through this synopsis, then you too indulge in this guilty pleasure as I do...
