I finally watched both reunion shows today. Wow! What a bunch of screaming banshees! Couldn't stand when all were talking/screeching (expect Peggy) at the same time. That was pure torture to my ears.
Are we sure that Simon is not paying alimony to Tamra? If he didn't, how did she pay for all their (hers and the kids) living expenses....child support couldn't cover it all?
Watching all of them, I can't see that any of them are any better than the others. None represent any virtues of womanhood, just the negative cliche sterotypes.
As for hypocrites, they all fit that description, it just depends on their individual circumstance at the moment.
Vicki is a dysfuntional adult, a damaged child...It's painfully obvious when we saw any of the interactions with her and her mother, who blatently refused to express any love, pride or postive emotions towards Vicki. She has been unable to see that the problem lies with her cruel unfeeling controlling mother and not with herself. Vicki is still looking for total love and approval from everyone in her life and it'll never be enough. Poor messed up thing. I think she had unrealistic needs from Donn that no man could ever fulfill, although what she doesn't realize is that she married a man who is just like her mother. I must say that the fact that he rolled over and went to sleep on the night of their vow renewal tells a lot. Pretty much a slap in the face to needy Vicki.
Tamra thinks she's the best looking woman in OC and instead of putting so much time into how she looks, she should have been busy educating herself and removing all traces of the trailer park which shine thru no matter how many diamonds she wears.
Peggy, at least, knows when to be quiet and not become a noisy shrew like the rest of them. But I think she's ridiculous in so many ways, including her narcissism: I'm blonde, hot and have a gun," her delusions: post partum depression that goes on forever and her holistic natural way of life: using organic vitamins, food, non chemical remedies except for putting silicon and injecting botchulism toxin in her "pure" body.
I don't buy Slade's BS about his working or rather his lack of work. Get a job, any job, even if he is over qualified for them like many, many people have had to do with this economy instead of taking a couple "consulting" jobs. Gretchen is wise not jumping into marriage with this lazy bum.
Gretchen seems to be dabbling in lots of silly little endeavors while she (and everyone else) knows that she's really waiting for Mr.Wealthy to save her from such mundane tasks to make a living. Darn that Jeff for up and dying!!
Jeana is the best example of a wet noodle without any backbone of anyone I've ever seen. Treat her horribly and she'll be even nicer to you, just like her son and her husband. Even when she threatened Tamra saying she'd push her into the pool, she sounded like someone saying "oh, the sky is blue." Is she even capable of emotion? Even a Vulcan has more emotion than she does.
Alexis is a perfect example of a Stepford wife that I've ever seen. It's just plain old sad that anyone can act like that in the 21st century, especially with such a smug pig of a husband.
Didn't mean to go on so long about these creatures. I should probably spend more time trying to figure out why I enjoy watching them so much!!
