The Real Housewives of Orange County are back tonight and dealing with the impact of the coronavirus, but are we ready to watch that again?
Back in March, everything around us changed at a rapid pace and the one thing on everyone’s mind was fear…and maybe toilet paper. The Real Housewives of Orange County cast was filming before that, but they were one of the first franchises affected by the total shutdown in the country. While some of the other shows couldn’t film their reunions or their interviews, The Real Housewives of Orange County couldn’t film anything until around July!
And now here we are, six months later. Kelly Dodd got married and showed she doesn’t believe in science, Shannon Storms Beador contracted the coronavirus but recovered, and the rest of the ladies seemed to make it through okay. However, are we all ready to re-live all of the emotions that March brought us? All of the crying and fear that came along with the nationwide shutdown?
There is only so much we can enjoy watching Shannon cry and Kelly complain that she didn’t buy enough toilet paper. Was there even much to film at that point – or will we get a ton of self-shot footage of the women sitting on their couch eating? We could see Shannon making bread from scratch like so many other families learned to do.
The ladies filmed for a month or so before everything shut down, and then filmed themselves outdoors once things resumed to a moderately normal level. Based on what we saw in the trailer, there is plenty of drama with Braunwyn Windham-Burke to tide us over from the quarantine woes.
Having the Real Housewives of Orange County back on our screen is one small step back towards normalcy, even if they do talk about a lack of toilet paper.
