I can’t believe it’s been another week, guys. How have you all been? Have you missed the housewives as much as I have? Well either way, I am more than happy to keep you posted on what the Real Housewives of Orange County were up to this week. Episode 12 was called “Bombs Away”. Now is this because of Gretchen’s horrible performance as a Pussycat Doll in the first five minutes of the episode or the insane news that Vicki’s daughter Brianna dropped on her at the end of the episode? Ah, it all comes full circle. Let me get you caught up with what these ladies were doing with their lives since we left last them in Vegas.
Gretchen finally does her performance with The Pussycat Dolls and kind of fails. Heather is confused about what exactly Alexis’s deal is. Alexis is trying to become a better news anchor, and Tamra is trying to help her oldest son get his shit together. These women are getting along and stuff besides some catty comments here and there, and I am just not okay with it. I tune in to be entertained, Andy Cohen. Is that so much to ask? Now onto my burning questions!
1. Did Gretchen choke during her performance?
I watched it. I listened to it. I kind of squinted and covered my ears. She’s not a very good singer, but that’s okay! No one is making her out to be the next Aretha. I just think that homegirl should have gone a different route with the whole singing thing. She didn’t need to belt out the freaking song, she could have just done a sexy/breathy thing Marilyn Monroe style and been good to go. I don’t think she choked. It takes a lot of courage to go up on stage in underwear and shake you ass without being under the influence of drugs/alcohol, so I must give her credit where credit is due.
2. Should Gretchen have given a better apology to Vicki?
Basically Vicki is turning over a new leaf and being nice to everyone. She gives Gretchen a birthday presents, apologizes for the huge fight the two had at the 80′s Bunko party (Can we go back to that time please?) and then when Gretchen doesn’t apologize back, Vicki asks for one. Oh no wait, she says, “You can say ‘I’m sorry’ back whenever you’re ready.” So that’s kind a polite way to ask for an apology, right? That’s the Vicki Gunvalson way! And is there a better way? I do not think so. Gretchen then gives a lame ass “Okay, okay I’m sorry too” apology and that is that. I think the peace offering on Vicki’s part was nice, but I don’t think Gretchen meant a word of her apology. These two will continue to hate each other. Good for them.
3. Do you guys believe that if you find something you love to do, you’ll never work another day in your life?
I’m kind of on the fence about this phrase. Slade busted it out in a peptalk to Gretchen, and I’m not sure I’m buying it from him either. I understand that if you love your job, you’ll be happier, but it’s still work and hard work at that! Someone make my glass half full here because I’m struggling.
