Meet Fernanda Rocha, The New Lesbian Housewife On “The Real Housewives Of Orange County”

They’re ba-aaaaaa-ck! “The Real Housewives of Orange County” is returning on Sunday, March 6, and this season looks just as bleached-blonde and silicone-stuffed as the ones of yore. There are bikini modeling shoots. There’s lesbian cast member, Fernanda Rocha. Let’s meet her, after the jump! Keep reading »

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Real Husbands of Orange County

It’s not easy being a real husband of Orange County. Not only do they have to maintain the lifestyles of their image-obsessed wives, they have to do it on national television. Let’s take a look at which one we’d shun, shag, and marry. Keep reading »

Did Tamra Barney Switch Mothers On “The Real Housewives”?

Yesterday, I worked from home and caught a few minutes of a “Real Housewives of Orange County” marathon. Bravo took it all the way back to season three. The episode I glimpsed was the one in which Tamra Barney celebrated her 40th birthday on a yacht. I wasn’t intrigued by the diamond Rolex that Simon bought her, nor the revelation that she had a “tramp stamp.” What really caught my eye was the wrinkled mess that was Tamra’s mother. I thought: “That’s not the same woman who was counseling Tamra on her marriage this season.” Tamra appeared to have switched out her older-looking mom for a younger one. So, I literally spent hours online looking for video footage of her mother from season three to compare with the mother from this season. Thanks, Bravo for not putting a clip of the party on your website. My investigative research was in vain, though, because I didn’t find what I was looking for. I did, however, come across a season four clip in which Tamra’s mom had a facelift and then thought: “It all makes sense now.” Too bad I can’t get my wasted hours back. Oh well, that’s the internet for you. Keep reading »

Tamra And Simon Of “The Real Housewives Of Orange County” Are Dunzo

On last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives Of Orange County“—which, face it, you weren’t watching because you were occupado with “Jersey Shore“—Tamra and Simon’s marital problems seemed to hit a fever pitch. Funny (OK, completely wrong word) that the episode should air the very week that Simon actually files for divorce. While on the show, Tamra talks about how she and Simon have grown apart over a fight with Tamra’s oldest, jail-bound son, the divorce papers tell a very different story. The papers say that Tamra “has been verbally abusive and has committed acts of disloyalty and infidelity.” Back the truck up! Really? Tamra? Just please tell me she didn’t get busy with Slade Smiley, who seems to have a Housewife fetish. Apparently, Tamra moved out of her house earlier this week and is now living in an apartment.

“Real Housewife” Lynne Curtin Gets Even More Loopy

Lynne Curtin is my second favorite cast member on “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” probably because she doesn’t take herself or anything seriously. Last season, I kept wondering what made her so loopy and lackadaisical. This season, the mystery was narrowed down a bit. When she appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” programming executive and host Andy Cohen asked her if rumors of her mushroom habit were true. Lynne said they weren’t. But on last night’s episode, she took pain medications after having a face lift and seemed her normal self. (You can see all the weird moments in the video above.) The other cast members blamed her crazy, airhead moments on the meds, yet she was enamored by the possibility of wild mushrooms growing in the Florida Everglades. That seemed strange to me, and I suspect she’s on some feel-good stuff regularly, even when she hasn’t had surgery. What are your thoughts on Lynne’s far-out demeanor? Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives Of Orange County” Finally Gets Interesting In The Fifth Season

Although “The Real Housewives of Orange County” was the first in the franchise, the show has been like an annoying stepsister since “The Real Housewives of New York City” premiered, because the O.C. women only seem to shop, booze, and complain. However, that all seems to change in the upcoming fifth season. Keep reading »

“Real Housewife” Gretchen Rossi Is A Millionairess

On “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” Gretchen Rossi played the part of resident gold digger. Squired around town by her way-older-than-her auto-exec fiancé Jeff Beitzel, Rossi cooed over the big diamonds that he bought her, but she made it clear to the other cast members that being included in his will didn’t matter to her. After Beitzel lost his battle with cancer, she declared that her late fiancé didn’t leave her “millions and millions of dollars.” As it turns out, though, he did. He left her $2.5 million, which I guess is a couple million and not “millions and millions.” (Or would those two “millions” make $2 million?) Supposedly, Beitzel’s five ex-wives are none too happy about missing out on Rossi’s share. Now, Rossi is dating slimy Slade Smiley. Shudder. [TMZ] Keep reading »

Sugar Ray Loves Cougars

Mark McGrath and his band Sugar Ray are really into cougars. So much so, that they’ve named their latest album Music for Cougars. While I’m slightly offended that they’re targeting such a specific demographic (oh, and I normally want to vom in my mouth upon hearing the term ‘cougar’), McGrath and his buddies are totally into these ladies. About the word, McGrath says, “There’s no negative slant. It’s a word of empowerment. Cougars are great!” He’s particularly fond of Vicki from “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” He even titled the track “She’s Got The (Woo-Hoo)!” after her customary greeting from the show. While the blonde O.C. mom may be flattered, I have to say if there was ever a reason not to purchase an album, I think naming a song after the most unbearable woman on a Bravo series would be a pretty solid rationale.

New Housewife Coming To Orange County

Real Housewife replacement checklist: Dyed Blonde hair? Check! Fake boobies? Check! Paralyzed facial muscles? Check! Huge bank account? Double check! That’s right, the producers of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” have cast a new blonde bombshell for the show’s fifth season. Since original cast member Lauri Waring Peterson will not be returning, they needed to find a replica quick. Based on her picture, it seems like they’ve been successful. The newbie is Alexis Bellino and she’s a 32-year-old (yeah, right) socialite. Oh, and she’s on Facebook. That’s all the juicy details I’ve got for now, but don’t you just love how easily replaceable these ladies are? When Mischa left “The O.C.” the show completely collapsed. In Bravo’s reality land, such a travesty could never happen. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Gretchen Rossi And Slade Smiley Are Really Dating

A few weeks ago, we told you “Real Housewives of Orange County” stars Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley were secretly hooking up. Well, now there’s photographic evidence. Slade and Gretchen are not only kissing in some of the shots, but he’s also checking out her butt while holding her at arms length. Gretchen, of course, seems to be acting her usual flirtatious self, showing off her tiny booty and veneered smile. And she’s wearing an engagement ring, which is probably the same one Jeff Beitzel gave her during season four because Slade has been having money troubles lately and probably couldn’t afford one. I can say one positive thing about this doomed affair: Her white bikini with black lace details is rather cute. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
