Why are we in the 87th season of this shit-show?
Anyone who believes that the “Real Housewives” franchise is grounded in reality is high. Newest housewife Kelly Dodd is that special blend of white trash reserved in the past for the likes of Brandi Glanville . Kelly has an obvious drinking problem which coincides with her court-documented anger issues. During the cast trip to Ireland Kelly drinks more than the local Irishmen & annoys her cast-mates to the point that they are thrown out of a shoe store ( A fate worse than death to Heather Dubrow) due to their raised voices. Kelly then proceeds to tell Vodka Shannon that she can “see why Tamra’s kids hate her.” Kelly clearly hasn’t gotten the memo that you can’t say anything behind a Housewive’s back or they will tattle on you as fast as they can. Vodka Shannon loves stirring the pot to take the focus away from her marriage and was happy to run to Tamra and tell her what Kelly said about her children. Tamra flips out, screams at Kelly, then out of camera range allegedly hits her.
This is where tonight’s episode picks up.
Meghan volunteers to take Kelly custody because the other ladies would cut that bitch. That means Tamra, Vicki, Heather, and Vodka Shannon all go on a field trip to an Irish Dairy farm. Uh huh. The O.C. “Plastics” are put into Osh Kosh overalls and shown how to milk cows. I was fine watching this cute little activity until Vicki Gunvalson starts making that horrible dry heaving sound she made in Bali when she barfed on the bus. I was enjoying shrimp tacos while watching RHOC and had to put them in the fridge. Thanks Vicki.
Later Meghan and now sober Kelly all come together for a steak dinner at the Dairy. Kelly decides to apologize for telling Tamra she’s basically a bad mother. Tamra and the other ladies aren’t in a forgiving mood because Kelly does this shit every episode. Kelly keeps trying to kiss Tamra’s ass, but Tamra wants none of it at the dinner. It’s uncomfortable to watch. I wouldn’t forgive Kelly either. She calls someone a cunt at every event and is always a drunken mess. She brings the group down and they need all the class help they can get.
Bike rides for most people are a relaxing way to see the countryside. Unless you are Vicki and hit the curb.
Meghan and Tamra tour the Powerscourt estate where a distant ancestor of Meghan’s haunts the tower. The other ladies sit on the lawn and enjoy a picnic lunch. Champagne and whiskey from Heather’s flask flow during lunch. Should they really be encouraging Kelly Dodd to drink at all? I think it’s bad form. Are the other ladies trying to set her up so that she will not be asked back for a second season? I’m going to say YES!!
During their “last supper” in Ireland Kelly appears to be tipsy still from lunch while chatting with Vicki. Shannon orders Kelly a Tequila and won’t take no for an answer when Kelly twice refuses the alcohol. Vodka Shannon forgets that she’s mic’d, goes into the bar and tells the bartender to make the Tequilas doubles. This is Naked Wasted 2 “The Revenge” and Shannon you are BUSTED. I have never been a Vodka Shannon fan and this proves just how low a bitch can go. She was purposely making Kelly drink to bring out more of her bad behavior.
What transpires next is pure “Mean Girls.” Heather, Tamra, and Shannon all gang up on Kelly Dodd after drinking. Vicki left Kelly back at the hotel so she could go hang with the gang. Tamra sends Kelly a text picture of her and Vicki to rub it in. Vicki repeats gossip from Kelly about Tamra and this leads to a scene in the hotel lobby at 3am. The “ladies” continue their disgusting display in the van taking them to the airport. I’m sure Ireland was happy to be rid of more tacky Americans.
These Housewives are nasty creatures. Heather, Tamra, and Vodka Shannon should all be ashamed of themselves. They have no redeeming qualities shown in them at all this episode. I hope they all watch the show and cringe a bit. Women should be better role models for their families and for one another.
