Bravo is sick and tired of waiting for drama on the Real Housewife shows. Creating a beef, and filtering it through the cast often takes a couple of episodes. That’s way too long to grab viewers attention. The new approach is to label one of the women as troublemakers, and then let the rest of the women pick sides in the argument.
On the Real Housewives of Atlanta the women have to deal with the antics of Kenya. The Real Housewives of New York are being torn apart by the actions of Aviva. The past season of Beverly Hills was entirely about how the women perceived Lisa on the show. The new season of the Real Housewives of Orange County, the original Housewife show, is following the same model. The ladies are picking sides when it comes to Heather, the rich actress wife who is building a palace of a home. Is Heather too formal? Does she act like a princess? That’s the real debate this season.
Tonight’s all new episode is titled Meet and Potatoes. Here’s the description from Bravo.
The Hawaii trip concludes with the ladies questioning Vicki about the status of her relationship with Brooks and one last attempt to get “Fancy Pants” Dubrow to put on her party pants. Back on the mainland, Heather introduces the ladies to her future neighbor Shannon Beador when Tamra invites the women over for a spooky-themed night of food and tarot card readings. At a dinner, Tamra reveals that she misses her kids and is thinking about having a baby with Eddie. After meeting the ladies, Shannon invites them to her house for a “real” home cooked meal.
“Fancy Pants” Dubrow is the new nickname for Heather. According to this group not screaming in public about your deadbeat boyfriend could be considered “Fancy”. Here’s a preview of Tamara throwing a spooky party where she’s no doubt yell at one of the women for not being sufficiently spooky enough.
