OMG did this show need some new blood or what! The newest Real Housewife is really the only reason I’m watching right now.
Vicki is a boring hypocrite…I can’t believe I watch a reality show about an insurance salesman. Ugh…”like a good neighbor…please go away…” HA!
……but last season, in a fight with her daughter about Brooks, Vicki defended herself by saying her daughter’s boyfriend was married to someone else…I want to know more about that because there’s something about mr perfect army guy that I’m just not buying. I get the desire to elope because Vicki would have probably just made the wedding about herself…(lol)…but something else is swimming under the surface here. I don’t blame Vicki for being taken aback, if someone knocked up my daughter and THEN married her in a drive-through I’d probably raise an eyebrow or two…I almost get the feeling Vicki just wants him to get deployed so that it can be a story arc for the show…and she can, “be there” for her daughter (on camera ofcourse…). but I digress…
It’s going to be interesting to see Lydia interact with the girls because let’s be frank here, she’s the only one who isn’t desperately middle class.
Oh Lydia, you’re so wonderful. Please don’t make me regret saying that!
In my lab of awesomeness (you know, where I created Carole Radziwill, HA!), if I could have made another fabulous “Real Housewife” it would be you….I fully expect to wake up and have drempt the whole premiere episode…lol
I think this season is going to be a real treat. For the first time we have a real Real Housewife of Orange County who seems pretty secure in herself, grounded and not completely egotistical about it.
I’m going to go ahead and guess that Heather’s going to kiss Lydia’s ass and try to get between Alexis and Lydia’s friendship. Lydia has real money and more connections, Heather’s a hater but she’s not so stupid as to scare away someone who could be useful to her in the future. I just hope Lydia sees through it and graciously excuses herself from the drama.
I honestly feel bad for Heather.
Heather looks nervous, insecure and socially awkward, half the time I have to stop myself short of feeling embarassed for her. She’s missing something and overcompensates by wearing Emily Post around her neck.
She’s so worked up about doing things how she thinks sophisticated people are supposed to do them instead of just having fun. It’s like she’s terrified someone’s going to notice she’s out of place or doesn’t belong.
Somewhere along the line, Heather got confused and equated sophistication to stuffy discomfort and comfort to loud and out of place. The biggest joke is that this, and most of her silly overdramaticized soliloquies about sophistication, have more in common with a Rodney Dangerfield movie, some overdramatized (is that possible? sadly, yes.) Jane Austen and some 80’s satire taken literally than actual reality.
Example: Bow-Gate last season
———-> A rude party guest ate part of Heather’s cake before she had a chance to cut it….
REALLY? You just made that entire night about a rude guest! WTF is wrong with you. You need to attend the David and Yolanda Foster School-of-Mitigating-Attention-Whores-and-Not-Letting-Them-Hijack-Your-Party…did you see how they handled Kyle Richards? Epic.
Unfortunately, Heather’s dreadfully unaware of the fact that the most sophisticated thing a woman can do is have fun, regardless of who is watching.
Deep down inside Heather and Alexis are exactly alike…and Heather’s afraid people will notice if she hangs out with Alexis so she does what every other insecure girl does…acts like the reason she won’t hang out is because she’s better.
I hope having a friend like Lydia will help Alexis with her self confidence.
You know how everyone was all fired up last season to see Heather and Alexis in one room together because, “Heather is what Alexis wishes she was/pretends to be…” blah
Well Lydia McLaughlin is what Heather wishes she was/pretends to be…
…at a certain point I think trying too hard should be painful…oh wait, I think it is, they just call it stress. HA! I wish Heather the best but she really needs to chill out before she gives herself an aneurysm. Life is too short to argue over onion rings…
(although part of me thinks that argument really had nothing to do with onion rings…)
