In tonight’s episode of Bravo’s hit reality TV show The Real Housewives of Orange County, Alexis unveils her new clothing line, Peggy and Tamra jet off to Las Vegas and Vicki is rushed to the hospital!
Gretchen’s handbag line is thriving with her says filled with meetings and appearances. After a long day at work, Gretchen and Slade have a heart-to-heart talk about their future. Gretchen says to Slade, “Lets give the perfect example: ‘Gretchen and Slade are going to have a baby but Slade owns this much on child support.’”
Slade fires back, “But it’s not about that.”
Gretchen responds, “But honey, you understand that people’s perception is going to be that, people are going to say he’s not able to pay for his first child why is he having another child? You know that.”
Slade tells her, “That debt is always going to be there, it’s never going to end.”
Gretchen says, “Ok, I guess what I’m saying is that, that debt is so high right now how are we ever going to be able pay that?”
Slade quickly cuts her off by stating, “You’re not going to pay it–it’s not your responsibility.”
“And I appreciate that,” Gretchen answers, “but my point is that if we’re going to be married and we’re going to be in a relationship–whatever is your issue is going to be my issue.”
During the interview portion of the show that is taped individually, Gretchen reveals, “I’m madly in love but I’m not madly in love and stupid, I don’t know if I’m ready to be like ok, I’m taking all of my hard earned dollars and monies and work and everything and I’m going to start supporting your child right now.”
Tearfully during her interview Gretchen breaks down and says, “It’s really hard–it’s really hard because I love him and I want to have a kid with him but I have to be smart. Sometimes I realize that love isn’t enough.”
Vicki and Tamra meet for drinks and while out Vicki breaks down and confides in Tamra that she believes her marriage is truly overs. She says that she and Donn live separate lives and that he is more of a business partner than he is a husband. Vicki tells Tamra that she has been praying for her marriage to get stronger but it hasn’t. She also says she is very scared about her future and doesn’t want to be alone. Tamra tells Vicki that she will be there for her every step of the way.
Meanwhile, Peggy takes Micah to Las Vegas for his birthday and invites another couple along with Tamra and Eddie. They have a great time together and during dinner Peggy says that she did not invite Alexis and Jim because Jim doesn’t want to be around their group.
Back in Orange County, the big day has finally arrived for Alexis to show her new dress line called, Alexis Couture. She is very excited and has a fashion show planned for her friends to see her creations. Fellow housewives Tamra, Gretchen, Fernanda, Peggy and former housewife Lynne Curtain are all in attendance. During the fashion show Tamra is visibly upset and calls Alexis over to tell her that she just received a text message from Vicki who is being rushed to the hospital because she is hemorrhaging.
Gretchen says she overhears what’s happening and can’t help but think that Vicki is faking it! Gretchen says, “All of a sudden at two o’clock on a Thursday when Alexis’ dress line is you decided, ‘Ok, now I’m going to go to the hospital’”
Tamra joins Fernanda, Peggy, Alexis and Gretchen to tell them Vicki is going to have surgery. Gretchen asks Tamra if Vicki did this on purpose and Tamra is very offended and says she doesn’t believe Vicki planned it.
