The Real Housewives Of Orange County: The Season Finale Brings More Drama For Tamra, Vicki, And Gretchen
March 04, 2010 09:16 PM by Jennifer
The end of the season is here, which means a huge bash with all of the housewives on the season finale of The Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO, who all say they are “taking the high road” and leaving the drama behind.Â But secrets will come out, relationships will end and more surprises await…
Before the party even starts, Simon and Tamra Barney get in a huge fight over her dress, which he thought was too short. He said he is not controlling, but he makes Tamra feel horrible about having a life outside their marriage and she cries as they arrive at the party. He tries to apologize, but sticks to his guns about him wanting her to focus on their family and not about going out with the ladies.
Jeana Keough arrives with her son Shane and daughter Kara, and even Lauri Peterson makes an appearance with her husband George, who we have not seen this season. But the ones who made the grandest entrance were by far Gretchen and Slade, who were dressed as if they were attending their own wedding!! Then Lynne arrives with her daughters, who are both clearly drunk, and she says she had no idea that they had taken alcohol while in the limo. The last time I checked, a limo was not so huge that you could not tell your kids were hitting the bottle in the same car!
Lauri approaches Gretchen about her and Slade, and Lauri is shocked to hear they are so serious, but no one is more shocked than Gretchen. Slade lied to her and said he never dated Lauri, which he clearly did in a past season. Lauri just wanted Gretchen to know what she is getting herself into, and Gretchen wants her to mind her own business. I guess Lauri doesn’t want Gretchen to become the next notch on Slade Smiley’s housewife bedpost.
Meanwhile, Lynne’s daughters keep fighting and her daughter Alexa storms off when her parent will not condone her underage drinking. She ends up breaking down and gets a pep talk from Kara, gets her to come back to the party. Alexis Bellino and Vicki Gunvalson are still not speaking to each other ofter the fight they had in San Francisco. Everyone is basically in their own little corner, and Tamra spends the whole party making digs at Simon for his comments about her dress.
But it came to a head and she also broke down at the party, crying on Vicki’s shoulder, which of course made Simon come running to see what they are taking about. Tamra tells her that she knows they are headed for divorce, and she tells Vicki that despite what Simon says, she knows they are friends and she has a good heart. Vicki told her she needs to stop letting him control her life. They are both downgrading each other to their friends at the party, and Simon walks out of the party and leaves her there.
For a bunch of women who said they were leaving drama at the door, there is no way they coud have even thought that was possible. They all vow to make the next year better. Lynne and Frank are working towards bettering their marriage, and Gretchen and Slade are still dating and remain unmarried. Tamra and Simon are now separated and Simon has filed for divorce. Will things ever change for these couples, and will the drama ever end? As a new season begins on the opposite coast, I look forward to the next season of The Real Housewives of Orange County on BRAVO
