It's episode 12 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and not a moment too early to start thinking about tying up loose ends, getting ready for the reunion and working out who will stay with the show and who will be bounced. Personally, I see a lot of cast and producer help for Shannon and David Beador, and in today's exclusive episode I explain that as well as how Heather and Terry Dubrow were probably losing their minds at this point in the filming process. Also, the Ladies of London are back for episode 6 of their first season and I saw some shocking and HILARIOUS comparisons with Seasons 1 and 3 of the Real Housewives of New York City. Oh man....grab a beverage and join me after the jump for a bumpy ride!
In addition to her marriage drama, Shannon has a particular quality that is fantastic for reality television, and it has to do with listening. Not that she doesn't at all...it's the WAY she listens. Her husband, for his part, brings his own special camera-loving behavior to the table and I break it all down for you in today's episode. Tamra Judge has very good reason to be worried at this point, as well, for reasons I'll explain.
Moving across the country and pond to London, my jaw was ON.THE.FLOOR. As someone who has personally lived through producer-suggested interviews and soundbites that get cut off or stitched together in, shall we say, interesting ways, I was fascinated by Marissa Hermer, Juliet Angus and Noelle Reno last night. I saw some direct comparisons to the first and third seasons of RHONY -- some things that happened to me as well as to others, and a few games cast members play whether they realize it or not. What am I talking about? There's the Hail Mary pass, and another fun game I like to call "What if I..." Hoo boy. Are you ready? Watch below!
