I am watching Real Housewives of Orange County for the first time…

I am on season 1, which feels odd because they’re all so basic here and the show was so simple then, as it was the very first RH ever. No glam at all, despite all their money.

However, I never heard of Jo and she’s so pretty and kind of bitchy to fiancé Slade Smiley… and I am obsessed with him. Look at that body on him from when he was a model. And he loves to show off. He loves being naked and having people see him naked.

What a fucking hottie he was.

They stay basic! Horrible style. Wait until Gretchen shows up she’s right out of a Poison video, it’s like the 90s never happened. Tamra was the only one with any life for a real long time.

R1 really? Lmao.

I’m excited to watch.

I can’t stand Kimberly on season 1. She’s annoying to me.

The only franchise I’ve ever watched all of is NJ. I’ve seen a few episodes of BH and Atlanta when I visit my mom or sister because they watch them but never followed it. NJ is the only one I seem to enjoy. The Atlanta women can get on my nerves and the BH ones can get boring.

Some of the kids turned out fine - Jeanna's and Vicki's. Lauri's son, of course, is a convicted killer, Lynn's daughters are felons and porn stars, Tamra's eldest son is MAGA trash and God knows what will happen to Kelly's poor daughter.

Heather's kids, rich and Jewish, will be highly educated and productive, and Shannon's daughters could go either way, given their batshit parents.

I always liked the first couple seasons before all the drama got super forced and everyone had to be super rich. The OC was one of the epicenters of the 2008 real estate crash and it was interesting to see it play out on the show. Jeana had a house for each kid in season one and then by season three she lost them all and her own house was in foreclosure. Lauri, with her wax face, was living in some dumpy townhouse. Tammy, who claimed she once lived in the biggest house in OC, was now working for Vicki out of Vicki's home office (imagine the nightmare that was).

r28 Laurie seemed really nice when she was poor but as soon as she got a rich man she turned. She was not "letting" her daughter live in her townhouse, she was charging her rent. She would not let her son live with them when she got rich because she was afraid it would ruin her marriage to George. Vicki took Laurie under her wing to help her make money but when she married George, Vicki was soooo jealous she could not see straight. P.S. Laurie, like all the OC housewives, is a deplorable Trumpster.

R29 they all are Republicans. OC is a very Republican place.

They all even admitted to voting Republican during the season 2 reunion, and spoke about how OC is mostly Republican so when you live there you assume the Republican candidate will win until you realize there is so much more outside or OC.

Ryan was a lazy 22 yr old; by the time he appeared on the show. Tamara married Simon; when Ryan was 13. Ryan resented growing up with a lot less and not having had the same opportunities his younger siblings had.

I thought the other issue between Ryan and Simon is that Simon treated him like his own son until he had kids of his own, then he lost interest

Look, if you’re into someone with a child, you know they’re a package deal. You don’t get with the woman and treat their son like shit.

Being that Ryan was a teenager; when they married. Their relationship was probably bound to be difficult. The main issue on the show seemed to be Ryan’s lack of direction and laziness. He didn’t want to go to school and didn’t want to work.

Tamra probably took Ryan's virginity when he was a teenager.

I don't dislike Tamra like some viewers do, but she seems like an absolutely shitty mother.

Maybe with Ryan, the excuse was that she was a teen mom, but she's been negligent and insensitive with her younger children, too. Is her daughter still estranged from her?

Tamra is all about herself and her pussy.

Say what you want, I love Kelly. I am watching season 11 and she’s a breathe of fresh air.

I have an unreasonable dislike for Tamra’s fug mom and I don’t know why. Every time I see her I get annoyed

Tamra and Ryan have a sick relationship. They act like two long time friends that once slept together or dated. It’s odd.

Hi Kelly r133!

Kelly is awesome. She gives these women a taste of their own medicine and they can’t handle it.

r131 Seems like? Her estranged daughter told her one thing. Please don't use me on the show, on social media or anywhere. Tamara could just not resist doing it despite her daughter's wishes, she was that desperate to be famous.

Quinn and her weird boyfriend were like something from 'Arrested Development,' but the show was going in a 'Knots Landing' direction with the introduction of Tamra that same season.

Tamra was cool and calm season 3. It was not until Gretchen came that she became a bitch.

She was always bitch. It just got increasingly worse.

I absolutely love Lydia and was sad she left after season 8 but am happy to see she’s back for season 12. Loved her!

Tamra was just highly threatened by Gretchen. She is a bitch to someone every season. She was awful to Lizzie on season 9 also.

Did you miss R105s response.

[quote] [R104] her maternal grandfather was the president of I. Magnin. He was also abducted with his wife in the early 1980s. Her ex-husband is the owner of a highway construction company, which in Southern California means big $$$.

Lizzie was the absolute coolest chick on this show, ever-

by Anonymousreply 149July 22, 2021 3:00 AM

Lydia was ok. I liked her mum more. Would take them both over Alexis.

by Anonymousreply 150July 22, 2021 5:14 AM

Alexis would be fine if she weren’t so annoying and whiny. Way too high maintenance.

Lydia seemed like a sweetheart who just wanted to have fun. Sad she was fired after season 12.

I loved Lizzie. She was so cool and laid back and fun. No wonder they demoted her from main to “friend” in season 10 and then did away with her all together, minus a guest spot here and there. She was too normal and cool for them. She didn’t cause tons of drama.

I wanna punch Heather Dubrow and her husband.

by Anonymousreply 151July 22, 2021 12:57 PM

Who's the frau on here mooning over homophobic, anorexic, dim bulb Lydia? She was a self-righteous fundie wrapped in a New Age veneer and hardly someone who "just wanted to have fun." Remember how upset she got when the cast went to Hamburger Mary's in WeHo?

And Alexis - "Jesus Jugs" - was another faux-Christian bitch who was neither bright nor interesting - just loud, dumb and greedy enough to be married to someone like Jim for the "status" it brought her.

Ugh.

Meghan divorced her Jim in 2021.

Heather Dubrow and Shannon aren’t the only ones genuinely wealthy.

Lydia’s husband is wealthy, Meagan’s husband is worth many millions and Peggy is very rich.

Season 11 was great but season 12 is top notch. There has not been a single moment that was not entertaining. Peggy joining and Lydia coming back was perfection, to add a more calm balance to the huge personalities like Kelly or Tamra. I feel they’re a bit mean to Peggy though. I hate it.

by Anonymousreply 156July 23, 2021 9:38 PM

I am watching season 13 and it’s boring compared to what were seasons 11 and 12. I honestly do not know why they didn’t keep the 12 lineup for another season. There was so much anger and drama there that would have rolled over into 13.

But before the 12 reunion even aired someone I know told me Execs were planning on dropping 3 of the ladies, starting with Peggy and Meghan. They were up in the air about Lydia but came up with the conclusion there was no place for her moving forward, but she didn’t want to come back anyway because her husband didn’t want her to so that was easy for them.

They ended up considering keeping Meghan because she dropped the bomb she was pregnant with her boy, which she wanted during the reunion. That was calculated by her because she knew she may be dropped so she thought that revelation may save her and keep her on the show, so we can see her go through this pregnancy she wanted and fans knew she wanted, but in the end they cut her still, although that almost did save her.

Lydia was brought back after production found out her and Tamra built a new friendship, and she was brought back specifically to be a bridge between the ladies and try to mend the relationships that were falling apart, especially Tamra and Vickie. They saw her be the bridge between the ladies and Alexis in 8 and they wanted her to do that again. They didn’t tell her this but they knew she would want to try and fix things, as this was who she was. After she did what they needed her to, they saw no need for her moving forward, but her husband didn’t want her doing another season and being around those women, so she left. So she wasn’t fired, even if they were going to.
