Last night the eighth episode of Bravo’s original gem of a reality show, The Real Housewives of Orange County aired, and the housewives got down and dirty. The episode entitled “Dirty Housewives” took the women from the gym to the mud pits to the courtroom.
This was another episode that I kind of yawned my way through. All the drama and emotion seemed forced (Gretchen’s “sprained” ankle), and I found myself liking Heather. I know. I liked Heather during this episode which really shows that I’m maturing as a person, you know? Or maybe I’m not maturing at all and just want people to scream and fight and pull hair. Anyways, let’s get the basics out of the way of what these ladies were up to on this hour of The Real (Dull) Housewives of Orange County.
Heather was giving her husband a makeover, working out in her mansion, and then doing the mud run like a champ. Tamra spends this episode kissing Heather’s ass (as per usual) and then the rest of the episode crying some pretty amazing crocodile tears about the finality of her divorce. Vicki is absent during this episode as a personality and just goes to dinner with Brooks, the creep. Alexis is still recovering from her nose job and feeling slighted by her BFF, and Gretchen is spraining her ankle and then also doing a whole lotta nothin’. Seriously guys, this episode was Dullsville, USA, but I believe myself to be a pretty positive person so I am going to find the interesting in this episode! Onto my questions!
1. Was Heather likable in this episode?
Yes! She was actually my favorite part about this episode. It might have been because she wasn’t making snide and snotty remarks every five seconds or because she was actually being nice and personable and human. She wore a cute shirt for the Mud Run all the ladies did, and not only that, but she did the Mud Run! I am also going to make a quick reference to how gigantic her home is. Her gym was the size of my entire house. I understand wealth and having means to have a home that large, but just because you have the money to have a huge mansion like that, does it mean you should? I don’t know about that one. I’ll save that question for next week.
2. Does Tamra need to stop saying, “I’m a free bitch!”?
Yes. She does. For some reason, this irritates me so much. It irks me when women call each other “bitches”. I get we’re “taking back the word” and all that good stuff, but for some reason, I just can’t get on board with it. Tamra, you are not Lady Gaga. You can’t scream from the mountain tops how free you are and then weirdly fake cry outside your attorney’s office after you sign your divorce papers. I’m not seeing how that all fits together.
