February 18, 2010 09:11 PM by Jennifer
Things go over the top on tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO. While LynneÂ CurtainÂ packs and ponders her future, Gretchen Rossi wonders if she will ever be ready to get married, which throws a wrench in Slade Smiley’sÂ plan for their future. Will everything work out? Read on to find out!
The housewives are out to for a nice meal during their trip to San Francisco, but it soon turns ugly. Alexis Bellino gets offended when Vicki Gunvalson uses her cell phone during lunch because Vicki made fun of her for calling her husband Jim the night before at dinner. This comment causes a domino effect and Alexis tells her that all of the women at the table get offended by what she says, especially a comment she made about being the only one who works.
Vicki puts her in her place by telling her that she is new, and they do not know each other, and she walks out of the restaurant. Tamra Barney and Vicki’s daughter Brianna go outside to check on her, and Alexis follows. Alexis tries to make her point again, and Vicki cuts her off. She told Alexis that since she doesn’t work, she shouldn’t have 2 nannies for her kids, why can’t she raise her kids herself if she does not have a job? Good point Vicki.
She returns to the table after cooling off outside the restaurant. In a surprising move prompted by Alexis, the housewives join hands and she starts a prayer for Vicki’s daughter and her health, since she had a thyroid biopsy done. In spite of this, Vicki still thinks Alexis is a hypocrite. When she gets back to Orange County, she invites her pastor and his wife over for breakfast so they can discuss how people look at them and may not think they live such a Christian lifestyle. The pastor brings up the San Francisco trip, and Alexis tells him about the argument with Vicki.
When they get back to Orange County, Simon asks Tamra how the trip was. She tells Simon about the argument that Alexis and Vicki had at lunch, and he turns it into a lecture about how she is never home anymore, and that the housewife drama is taking control of her life. And we all know that Simon does not like her having her freedom, especially where Vicki is concerned, as he thinks she is a bad influence. He tells her she needs to be home more. She ends up going for a walk with Vicki to clear the air about their friendship, and Vicki tells her she needs to either have her back from now on with the other housewives, or they can end their friendship.
On the other side of Orange County on tonight’s The Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO, Gretchen’s parent’s rented out Merv Griffin’s estate and invite Gretchen and Slade over, and she is eager to have him meet her parents. He really needs to bring it , because Gretchen’s mom is not happy she is in a relationship so quickly after her fiance’s death from Leukemia. When they arrive at the mansion, they don’t seem to like him very much, and while her dad is showing them the horse track on the estate he says he ‘stepped in a pile of Slade”. Gross.
But when Slade goes for a bike ride with her dad, his intentions are revealed..that he wants to ask his permission to propose to Gretchen! Her dad tells him that he needs to also ask her mom, who will not be happy about it. It is really hard to see Slade as this traditional gentleman when he has acted like a slime ball in the past. Well, that evening at dinner, Gretchen asks her parents how they have stayed happily married, and that she doesn’t understand how people can stay married. She said she has been through a marriage and divorce, and she isn’t sure if she wants to go through that again, not having any idea that Slade wants to propose which he does not end up doing tonight.
As far as Lynne goes, her husband packed his things and moved into a hotel, while Lynne and the girls move in with her mom since they were served with that surprising eviction notice. She goes to the hotel with her daughter Alexa to talk to her husband, and he can’t apologize enough for keeping secrets from them about their money and their house. It comes out that they have always lived beyond their means, and have frequently moved. Frank tells her that he will be open and honest with her from now on, and she has a hard time going back to him. He sees how upset this whole situation is making his daughter, and he suggests that they go on a family vacation together, which seems like a bad idea since they do not have a place to live. She is not sure what they should do, or if they even have a future together anymore.
