The Real Housewives Of Orange County is all new tonight on Bravo. The OC ladies bust out their 80s hair and clothing for Tamra’s bunko party. Plus, a housewife spills the beans about Slade’s comedy routine. Keep reading for all the details from tonight’s totally awesome RHOC episode.
“For the first time, I feel like this is what I’m supposed to do,” Slade tells Gretchen about stand-up comedy. Gretchen sighs, because she just can’t understand (like all of us) where Slade’s sudden passion for comedy has come from. Plus, how can Slade attend to Gretchen’s every need as her assistant if he is busy writing comedy? Gretchen gives the green light on Slade’s comedy career path if he agrees to keep the housewives out of the routine.
Heather and Tamra are lunching together today. The girls share some small talk and bash Alexis for a couple of minutes. Heather tells Tamra about Alexis being a news anchor. Tamra laughs and says, “my 12-year old is smarter than Alexis.” Then Heather lets Tamra know that she went to the Improv to see Gretchen and Slade perform. Tamra has to take a sip of her wine when Heather informs her that Slade referred to her as the Michelin Man. “I’m not trying to insight you with this,” Heather says in her always calm voice. Well what are you trying to do Mrs. Dubrow? When Tamra starts to get heated about the situation, Heather then tries to down-play the whole thing. Tamra decides she is just going to kill Slade with kindness.
Alexis is having a consult with her plastic surgeon about a nose job. A deviated septum and blocked airways are her excuses, but you know she just wants to get rid of that bump! The doctor is completely annoyed with Alexis, because she is crying and acting like a baby! “My God girl, you’re just having a nose job,” the doctor finally scolds Alexis.
After the whole nose consult, Alexis meets Gretchen for coffee. Immediately the conversation turns to the comedy routine from the other night. Alexis warns Gretchen that she should call Tamra and let her know what Slade said about her, before someone else does.
Vicki is flustered at work today, so she is taking it out on her employees. The whole divorce is taking its toll on Vicki, plus Briana’s health is weighing heavily on her. “I kind of feel the walls are caving in on me and I’m melting,” Vicki tells the cameras. There is definitely no “who-hoo’s” from Vicki in this episode.
Slade let’s Gretchen know that she has been invited to sing with the Pussycat dolls in Vegas. Gretchen is nervous, but Slade thinks it’s a great opportunity to expand her musical career. Yes, another housewife who wants to be a singer! The next day, Gretchen invites her friend over to help her choose an 80s themed outfit for Tamra’s party. While Gretchen is in the middle of large hair bows and lace gloves, Tamra calls. Tamra wants to chat about the whole Slade comedy skit issue and Gretchen’s face goes pale. Gretchen lets Tamra know that she had no part in Slade’s comments, but apologizes for it.
Tamra brings her BFF, Vicki, some coffee in hopes to cheer her up. Vicki lets Tamra know that she is really stressed about Briana’s health. Plus, Vicki has already heard that she was called Ms. Piggy in front of an entire club. “Should I put a bag over my face?” Vicki asks Tamra. Tamra just wants to kill Slade with kindness, but she doesn’t think Vicki can handle that approach.
The ladies are going all out for Tamra’s 80s party, crimper and all! Of course these girls need assistants and hair stylists to get ready for any party, and this is no exception. Both Alexis and Gretchen are done up like Madonna, while Tamra chose to go for the “let’s get physical” look. Heather shows up looking all glam, dressed up as a Robert Palmer girl. “Just because it’s an 80s party doesn’t mean you have to look bad,” Heather tells the cameras. Does Heather ever let loose?
The bunko playing begins and Alexis is praying to Jesus and blowing on the dice. Alexis’ praying works and her prize – nipple nibblers! Then out of nowhere, some random guy at the party brings up the Improv act. Gretchen tells everyone that she didn’t say anything and it was all Slade. Heather and Alexis defend Gretchen in the situation and Tamra defuses the fight. Vicki isn’t happy that Tamra is making nice with Gretchen. ”No man of mine would talk that way about another woman,” Vicki tells a friend at the party. Tamra has one last surprise for the girls and it’s…the ladies significant others dressed up in 80s wear.
Vicki is appalled that Slade had the nerve to show up to the party. Vicki’s face is like oh my god, gag me with a spoon! How will Tamra’s bunko party end? We will all find out next week.
