Well hello there Orange County fans! Despite missing two of the most infamous OC housewives, I’d say that this season is still pretty drama-filled. We have sober wives, wives that do shots, and brand new romances. So what went down last night?
Well for starters we pick up where we left off, regarding Braunwyn’s bombshell of an admission that she is an alcoholic and is now living a sober life. Unbeknownst to Shannon, who only knows Braunwyn as a wild drinking party girl, Ms. Storms is originally thrilled when she hears that Braunwyn isn’t drinking as she assumes that she is pregnant with baby #8. After Shannon discovers the true reason for her alcohol-free night, she vows to support Braunwyn as best as she can. Despite having support, Braunwyn is having second guesses as after announcing her secret, she is coming to the realization that she has to now stick with it and it’s now in the public eye:
Keeping on with Braunwyn’s drama-filled season, the focus moves to her relationship with her husband of 20 years Sean (that we know isn’t going great.) After turning towards a sober life, Braunwyn reveals that she and Sean haven’t had sex or been affectionate at all towards each other. What happened to those late-night rendezvous at their romance pad? Was the spark killed after Braunwyn couldn’t have some wine or a martini to unwind? I hate to say this, but I get the feeling that Braunwyn (who is actually a legit housewife) joined the show so she could have her own income and get divorced. I feel a lot of these women who watch the show before joining think becoming a Bravo Housewife will be a way for them to get their own money so they can navigate their way out of a marriage. As we known Braunwyn and Sean moved from Miami to the OC to be on the show, it wouldn’t be a stretch:
From sober lives to shots, we also have Emily and Gina who get absolutely sh*t faced and gossip about the rest of the group. Shannon is upset with Braunwyn for the things that she said; however, Braunwyn is upset with Gina for calling her husband a creep. Can I just say that they both are technically right in this situation? Gina is doing her best in a messy situation; however, going after husbands never turns out good. To be fair, if I received that text from Sean late at night, I would probably be creeped out as well:
