My Guilty Pleasure


This week's Orange County Housewives started off with Gretchen's burlesque home party...move over Tupperware! We're talkin' lingerie, whips, nipple tassels, and more. I love Gretchen's red dress (where is her Louis Vuitton?) AND the peacock ensemble she rocked while learning to do a burlesque dance. So cute for a private naughty moment...national television?...not so much!

Lynne, the brunette new housewife and so far boring disappointment, went shopping with Gretchen. Surely she took her LV...where is it?! I am sorry...I would never stand next to Gretchen while trying on clothes...I am not into torturing myself. LOL!

Last week I confessed that I am loving Gretchen and her 23-years older than her fiance, Jeff. He is the one I first referred to as a cross between Santa Claus and Kenny Rogers that has leukemia. When I confessed that their story had touched my heart last week I went to read her blog on the Bravo website...only to find that Jeff has passed away. This week they showed a nurse teaching Gretchen how to give him stuff through his IV. I can't imagine how hard this is for her to watch now.

Vicki is shopping for a yacht. She will have to sell their river house to buy it. This upsets her daughter, Brianna. I don't think Vicki will be able to sell it when it upsets one of her kids. However, I think Vicki will find another way to get the boat...

...cause how could you not want to do this! Plus the inside is UNBELIEVABLE!

There were 2 annoying things during the show last night...#1 Everyone seemed to be going out to dinner and lunch. I like seeing them at home and other places. #2 The punk in the picture above...This is Tamra's son, Ryan. His lazy, spoiled, bratty, cocky, obnoxious attitude drives me up the wall. I like his shirt though! LOL!
The show ended with Vicki and Jeana argueing about ex-husbands...
The teaser next week....Jeana stabs Vicki in the back....Ryan does something else to upset Tamra!

I am so sad about Jeff passing away. I wonder if she will continue with the shoe. She won't be a house wife? HMMMM.
Are you a wanna be Housewife? Or just fun to watch others live that life. Myself I would love to have the money but, I know we are only seeing a little bit of their lives and they don't seem happy. I mean truly happy, maybe Lurie. Anyway there is something about that Lynn I am not sure about. She looks like an older version of Nikki Cox (she use to be on the tv show LasVegas). For some reason I am intrigued with Tamra. I am nothing like her( believe me). I will have to go read the blogs. Hugs, Bobbi Joc

OMGosh...I love your play by play. But you should have warned me with a Soiler Alert...heehee! No Comment...it's on my TiVo...lol! Saving it for when I'm not swamped with December Duties! Last night was the 6th grade band performance. Today I worked at my son's middle school in the snack bar. I'm completely exhausted! Tomorrow I'm at the High School helping out PTO...I'm ready for the holiday break...lol!

Love this show. I fell in love and beca,e addicted 2 years ago and watched all the reruns of season 1 a million times. I read the blogs last night and i figured out with all the past tense he was gone. So sad. He never did look like he even felt well on ANY ogf the shows. I bet 10 dollars Vicky don't sell the River House. Poor bay. What a bawl bag. Our family always made fun of children who cried and whaled out all the time. She is a all grown up bawl bag it seems. BOO HOO. I can't wait for the episode where Vicky falls down because it seems she is drunk. That will be a good one. I am sorry to fish liped Lori to go, I like her and her spoiled brats too. Tamer's son is a brat and a dead beat moocher it seems and will never grow up. I can wait until next week, it looks so good. Can't wait for all the drama.

i feel like i don't even have to watch it because you explain everything so clearly! I think I like Gretchen just because you do!

I don't watch the show so I have no investment in any of the characters. I'm guessing that Gretchen is most upset that she didn't get Jeff to the alter before he expired. Yeah, I know, I'm cynical.
