On tonight’s episode ofÂ The Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO,Â Â Vicki realizes how much her husband Don means to her, and that she needs him in her life. Â They take a romantic walk on the beach and Vicki surprises Don with a letter she has written to him declaring her love and that she is taking him on a surprise trip to Turks and Caicos.Â Is there trouble in paradise for the other couples? Keep reading to find out!
Also on this episode ofThe Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO, Tamra Barney and her husband Simon are at odds over Tamra’s choice of friends. Simon does not want Tamra to be friends with Vicki, because Vicki and Don areÂ independent in their marriage, and Simon is very controlling. Simon is shocked when Tamra brings up the idea of her reconciling with Gretchen. He cannot believe after all that Gretchen has put Tamra through, between the late night phone calls from Gretchen’s “so called” boyfriend Jay, to the Internet blog she started about Tamra, that she would even entertain the idea of them being friends again. He tells Tamra that she is not to let Gretchen back into their lives.Â Simon says he wants to be with good people, and he also seems to be bitter about a recent trip to Florida which was supposed to be a girls only weekend for the ladies, which he managed to ruin by showing up with another of the housewife’s husbands, Alexis Bellino’s husband Jim.
Speaking of the other controlling husband, Alexis and her husband Jim prepare to take their children to church, and Alexis listens as the priest explains how they should not be concerned about all of the drama in that occurs in life. I hate to break it to her, but if drama is what she is trying to avoid, then she is on the wrong show.
Also on tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO, Gretchen calls up Lynne Curtain, another housewife turned cuff and belt designer, and asks Lynne if it is okay if she takes Lynne’s daughter Alexis shopping.Â What Lynne does not know is that Gretchen wants to take Alexa out so they can talk because she overheard Alexa say she is depressed, and Lynne totally ignores her.Â GretchenÂ lets Alexa know she is there if she needs someone to talk to, and Alexa lets her know she feels alone, and that no one pays any attention to her.Â Alexa goes home and tells Lynne that she was ambushed by Gretchen, and Lynne is not very happy about it, and plans on speaking to Gretchen.
Meanwhile, in Turks and Caicos,Â Vicki asks Don if he would marry her all over again.Â He saysÂ yes, to Vicki’s relief, and sheÂ reveals her biggest surprise, that she has a wedding planned for them the next day on the beach to renew theirÂ vows.Â The following day at sunset, Vicki and Don read handwritten vows to each other, and Vicki surprises Don with a newÂ on and a half carat wedding band.Â Don couldn’t be happier.Â Vicki had said previously that her love tank was empty.Â Seems like now it is overflowing!
Back in Coto, Tamra meets with her mother, and explains to her that she thinks that she and Simon are headed for a divorce, and that Simon is very controlling, and that if they did not have children she would leave him.Â Â Â Tamra’s mother tells her that she either needs to make it better or they need to separate.Â Tamra has alot of thinking to do, as the prospect of being a mother ofÂ three Â young children andÂ being alone is not what she wants,Â but Simon’s controlling behavior may leave her no choice.
Will Tamra stay with Simon and let him go on with his controlling ways? Will she and Gretchen ever be able to mend their friendship?
Tune in next Thursday at 10 PM EST for another drama filled episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo to find out!!
