The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s tag lines are out and I’m not super impressed. Usually the OC women have such witty and catchy tag lines, that I don’t mind hearing them at the start of every episode. This year, for season 12, I’m not sure I want to hear them for the weeks to come. Thank god for Bravo On Demand.
Upon hearing the tag lines, I didn’t know what to think at first or how I wanted to introduce them to you (if you haven’t already heard them) and I still don’t know how but here goes.
Kelly Dodd – “If I want your opinion, I’ll give it to you.” I was having my morning cereal when I heard this one and almost spat it out. It was funny. Though I’d have preferred something like this, “You can stay the puppet while I stay the master” (credit: mattymonsterz) Kelly’s choice is still good. It is very true to who she’s shown herself to be on season 11. It gives me Victoria‘s from The Real Housewives of Sydney, “My viewpoint isn’t the only one, but it’s clearly the best.” Get em Kellegend!
Meghan King Edmonds – “I can handle a baby and women who act like one.” I’d have put Meghan‘s first cuz it’s really good but I like a witty tag line more. If you haven’t seen the trailer, you can check my blog for my thoughts on it. There, you’ll see why Meghan‘s tagline is no longer centred around being Jim‘s wife.
Vicki Gunvalson – “I go big or go home and I’m not going home.” Since season 10, Tamra and Shannon have been rumoured to be lobbying for Vicki to leave the show. This is tag line is perfect cuz the OG is here to stay, woo hoo!
Lydia McLaughlin – “If you can’t take my sparkle, then stay off my rainbow.” I love Lydia to bits but I feel like Queen Judy, Lydia‘s mom, is responsible for this. L O L. She is always fairy dusting people and from the trailer we see she’s back and upgraded to sparkle. I’m here for it Lydia.
Tamra Judge – “I’m pint sized, baptised and highly prized.” Okay, so this isn’t so bad but when has Tamra every been pint sized? Does she think she’s Adriana De Moura from The Real Housewives of Miami? Besides, her main storyline this year, from the rumour mills, should be centred around defending her husband against the “allegations” re his sexuality. What does being pint sized have to do with any of that? I guess we’ll find out.
Shannon Beador – “The truth is organic, but lies are just artificial.” I, for one am stunned this is her tagline. Saying lies are artificial is like saying water is wet. What happened to the woman who came up with “When life gives you lemons, put nine in a bowl”?
Peggy Sulihan –“I’m living the American dream, one sports car at a time.” When I heard this, I knew I heard it somewhere before. In fact, I knew it came from another housewife. Using my detective skills, I typed these exact words “I’m living the American dream, one mistake at a time” and I found that the tag line belonged to Kelly Bensimon of The Real Housewives of New York City season 4. Peggy, you should have done adequate research. Can’t believe Andy approved it.
The Real Housewives of Orange County returns Monday July 10 at 9/8c only on Bravo.
