Half of the RHOC ladies are off to Las Vegas for spicy skinny margaritas, the other half is waiting for Tamra to stir the pot again. We won’t have to wait long.

RHOC star, Emily Simpson, decided to partake in some kind of sexy burlesque show in Las Vegas to surprise her dork of a husband, Shane.  Braunwyn Windham-Burke goes with Emily for support, since Shane won’t even go.  The worst part is that Shane’s parents also came to support their daughter-in-law on her sexy adventure for their son. I am mortified.  Shane showed up the next morning for no reason and immediately put a damper on things. Go Shane!

Off to Arizona

Once that is over, the whole cast heads out to Arizona for “healing,” and something tells me there will be no healing on this trip.  Kelly Dodd hits Shannon Storms Beador over the head while she has a bowl on her head and all hell breaks loose.

Shannon was obviously upset, but once again, Tamra Judge is the instigator here.  Shannon seems to act on cues from Tamra on when to be extra dramatic.   Tamra exaggerated Shannon’s “injury,” as she does everything.  Initially, Shannon seemed fine.  Annoyed, but fine. Until Tamra started convincing her she wasn’t. “I don’t wanna scare you but my ex-husband hit the top of his head and then his spinal fluid started leaking.” At that point, she freaked out.


Once Tamra scared Shannon, she insists that Shannon has talked herself into being worried. Um no Tamra, You talked Shannon into being worried.  Of course at that point, it’s too late. Shannon is convinced she’s not going to make it.

Imagine being the urgent care doctor when Shannon walks in and says, “I had a bowl on my head and my friend hit me with a mallet.  Then I took out my contacts and I can’t see.”

Once they arrive, the doctor suggests that this was an assault and asks if Shannon wants to press charges…Oh, yes, yes she does. Unfortunately, she can’t, but this definitely won’t be the end of the least zen “zen retreat” on record.
