Five episodes to watch while a single glistening tear rolls down your cheek.
In which nobody’s exactly on their best behavior.
Because, like the late capitalism it so hyperrealistically depicts, this program inevitably sunders bonds, destroys traditional relationships, and spreads psychic and physical pain.
My it’s been a busy gossip week. (Or maybe I’ve just been bored-refreshing my Google Now too much.)
In which we discuss such hot topics as life and death, love and hate, the specter of racism, and a couple that just really, really likes Hot Topic.
Today’s Round-Up features sterling examples of the five basic conflicts of literature: woman vs. friend, woman vs. enemy, woman vs. frenemy, woman vs. husband, and woman vs. Kim Zolciak.
In this week’s Round-Up, Tamra plans for the future, Brandi is haunted by her past, and the Countess is present and accounted for.
If we’re counting off things these rich ladies love (in a plot twist surprising to no one, the true horror is privilege), we must acknowledge psychics. Truly, nothing says “bored with too much money” like paying a stranger to magically divine your future.

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.
