The Real Housewives Of Orange County: Vicki And Alexis Fight, While Slade Wants To Propose To Gretchen

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 Lynne  Curtain packs and ponders her future, Gretchen Rossi wonders if she will ever be ready to get married, which throws a wrench in Slade Smiley’s 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.

Tune in next Thursday at 10 PM EST for another exciting episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO to see where their lives take them!

    Big surprise! We knew a fight would happen between these two. However, isn’t it funny how Alexis gets scrappy with everyone, except her PRECIOUS husband?

    And what’s this christian crap? She uses it like it’s an accessory pulling it out whenever she feels the need to. What christian woman would have attacked someone like that at a lunch table, especially when Vicky’s daughter is awaiting a cancer diagnosis?

    And then to have the pastor and his wife over for breakfast. What was that all about? These two live in their own little world. He is obviously an overbearing, bossy, full of himself type of person and she is a lost soul. The insecurity shines through for sure. Hence, the reason for the “body beautiful issue” and thinking that a guest at the tupperware party was trying to nab her husband…..oh gross….who the heck would want him anyway?

    And for Jim to say that we use our gifts referring to beauty to do God’s work….what planet do these people come from? What work are you doing Jim? Trying to let people know that you have $ by your snide comments about how much your room costs and Alexis’ dress?? And then to let the pastor know that Alexis had the opportunity to pray for Vicky’s daughter. Didn’t hear mention of how she laced into Vicky prior to that though.

    And then for Alexis to say that she works referring to raising her kids and taking meticulous care of her husband. What the heck? She has two nannies for crying out loud. She didn’t even make a decent breakfast for the pastor and his wife. To serve yogurt and fruit???? What is that? And I love when Jim tells her to say the menu on the table like she is a waitress or something. I was waiting for them to give her their orders!!! LOL!

    Oh hell, this is just getting tooooo weird for me!!

    And to you Slade. You need to stop chasing TV housewives to get air time, get a job, and take care of the kids you already have. I mean you’re talking about marrying Gretchen and having kids. Don’t you already have kids you don’t take care of?

    I find it funny that everyone sides with Vicki! Good for her that she has her own business and is doing so well but who the hell is she to pass judgement on ANYONE! Not only does she demean the other women on the show but news flash you aren’t 16 anyone…ACT YOUR AGE! Her and that other train wreck Tamra are two peas in a pod and if any two people need a bitch slap into reality…THESE TWO ARE IT!
