The Real Housewives Of Orange County: If You Can’t Take The Heat…

January 28, 2010 09:35 PM by Jennifer


Things are really heating up on tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO. Cuff designer Lynne is still having a hard time controlling her teenage daughter, and Gretchen isn’t done putting her two sense in about it. You won’t believe how Lynne reacts to what she has to say! Keep reading to find out!


Lynne tries to bond with her daughter Alexa, and that totally backfires when she attempts to take her shopping. Lynne tries to start a conversation with her, and basically Alexa tells her mom all she cares about is her cuff line. Alexa takes off her cuff, throws it on the table they are seated at, and Lynne tells her that she is such an actress. So Alexa calls her mom a bitch and then storms off.  Not knowing where else to turn, Lynne turns to her mother, who tells her she needs to work it out with Alexa.

Meanwhile, housewife Alexis is planning a cooking party to try and bring Tamra and Gretchen together, because she is friends with both of them. She think she long standing feud between them should just be done with and everyone should just get along.

What Alexis doesn’t realize is that the cook isn’t the only thing that will have things heating up in the kitchen. As Gretchen, Tamra and Lynne arrive for the cooking party, they realize that they are all cooking their own meals. Things start to go sour when they sit down to eat and Alexis puts Gretchen and Tamra on the spot by asking them if they are making up. Both women say they are not really entertaining the idea, which was basically the whole point of the party in the first place.


Lynne, who is pretty drunk at this point, loses it when Gretchen asks her how Alexa is, because Lynn is still pretty mad that Gretchen spoke to Alexa about being depressed. Gretchen tries telling Lynne how to parent her daughters, and Lynne fires back telling her that until you have a child, you have no clue. Gretchen tells her that just because she “popped out a kid” doesn’t mean she automatically know how to parent. Lynne zings her back by telling the group that maybe they should go on the internet and type in Gretchen’s name and see how much of a role model for kids she would be. Lynne breaks down crying about how she just wants her kids to be happy, which is hard in Orange County with the financial expectations that come along with living there. The girls try to comfort her, to no avail.

On the calmer side of town on tonight’s The Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO, Vicki and her husband Don are keeping their new found romance alive by going out for a romantic dinner on the beach, which almost gets ruined when a sea gull leaves a gift on their waitress’s head. After the commotion is over from the bird dropping incident, Don gives Vicki a beautiful diamond ring in response to the ring Vicki gave him when they renewed their vows last week. It seems these two have a new appreciation for each other, and seem to be the only normal couple in Orange County.

Has Gretchen made another enemy, or can she and Lynne remain friends? The drama is far from over!

Tune in next Thursday at 10 PM EST to see if the gloves come off on the next episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO to find out!!

    Unfortunately, people don’t realize that along with teaching your kids all the other life skills, boundaries is part of it. And it seems obvious that within your own marriage, there were no boundaries when it comes to what you want to do and this is the reason you cannot accept the reality of your present predicament and must blame someone else for it.

    Don’t be one of those moms that trys to let your kids have all the freedoms you never had. And for goodness sake, don’t try to be their friends. If you do that, they will view you as a friend and treat you accordingly. There will be no respect as a parent and when you tell them to do something, it will come across to them like their friend is telling them not their mom. Trust me, from experience, you will be sorry and it won’t get better….it will get worse.

    Although Gretchen is no angel, she was right about being a parent. They need boundaries and actually require them. Giving your kids boundaries is part of the growing up process. It teaches kids to deal with real world boundaries when they become adults. Without that coping skill, they will always have an uphill battle when it comes to jobs, husbands, and even their own kids.
