Tamra BarneyOh, Tamra. Wow. On last night's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange CountyTamra Barney Judge faced off against the rest of the cast. No wonder she's been having a social media meltdown! In today's exclusive video episode below, I take on the second half of the RHOC trip to Bali, and what the Orange County ladies have that no other Housewives franchise has. And it's not good. Also today, episodes 2 and 3 catch us up on The Real Housewives of Melbourne, and episode 2 of the new series Jersey Belle.

Season 9 of Orange County seems to be full of more producer meddling than we have ever seen before -- but that may not be a bad thing. I suppose that since audiences have become more savvy, editors need to confuse us more. Maybe? In any case, in today's video episode below, I discuss what HAD to be a setup, what MAY have been, and what just happened naturally, because there is that as well.

Real Housewives of Melbourne

Moving over to Australia, as it's only a few hours from Bali, not 19 as it is for Orange County, I got myself fully up to date on The Real Housewives of Melbourne. It's interesting to me to see not only a newbie cast, but also a newbie crew. I break down why some of the ladies seem like virgins fumbling in the dark, and how that can and will get better. I'm fascinated by Jackie Gillies, and there's an interesting parallel to be drawn between Gina Liano and another infamous housewife. Can you guess who? Watch and see!

Finally, we've got episode 2 of Jersey Belle, which takes the publicist concept of a reality show and adds docu-soap to create a very interesting hybrid. So far, Jaime Primak Sullivan and her Southern chicks are holding my attention, and in today's episode, I explain how its future could swing either way. Watch now!
