With several casualties being reported from the latest RHOC cast I’d like to take the time to consider the allegedly one-and-done Peggy Sulahian’s time on the show before she drifts off into the one season wonder abyss forever. How did the 100th housewife cast live up to this unique and arbitrary distinction? Let’s analyse.
You only get one chance to make a first impression.
Good news to the many bloodthirsty fans waiting for the bodies to hit the floor after Orange County’s disastrous twelfth season: the cull has apparently begun.
In news that should come as a surprise to no one, Radar Online is claiming that Peggy Sulahian has been given her marching papers. The stated reason is that no one wants to work with her, but it’s probably also material that no one wants to watch her. Peggy’s abrasive personality and history of homophobia turned off viewers from the jump. If they’re looking for places to slice and dice the OC cast to improve the chemistry for next year, Peggy is the obvious place to start.
This isn’t set in stone — the gossip rags get it wrong sometimes, and Housewives do come back from the dead. Meghan King Edmonds was supposedly cut last year, only to be brought back early in the filming schedule to balance out the cast. But call it a hunch: I don’t think we’ll be seeing a resurrection this time around. Take it easy, Peggy — it was a pleasure to get to know your weird ass, however briefly, even if you’d probably ban me from your father’s funeral.
If you’re still here with us in this final half of RHOC season 12 then good on you, you masochist. The absence of last week’s highs(?) and lows was due to the episode being so dull I couldn’t even bother to write about it. Thankfully Taylor helpfully summed up the issues with the normally stellar OC housewives franchise. While this week wasn’t a classic it definitely bounced back some from last week’s low. Let’s dive in.
Queen for an Episode: Orange County is cancelled indefinitely until this show gets its shit together. As of this moment, I don’t know how it’s going to happen. The beautiful methed out paradise of Orange County has turned into an unliveable hell. Lynne Curtin didn’t die for this.
