The Real Housewives Of Orange County Recap: Vegas Baby!

April 24, 2012 07:21 PM by Megan Thompson

The Real Housewives Of Orange County is all new tonight on Bravo. The women are out of the woods and headed to Vegas for Gretchen’s Pussycat Doll performance. Keep reading to find out all the details from tonight’s RHOC episode.

Alexis invites Gretchen over to watch a copy of her “news anchor” job.  Talk about torture!  Instead of helpful tips, Gretchen informs Alexis that she was really asked to do these segments first, but her schedule was too busy.  ”When I told them I couldn’t do it, they called you to do it,” Gretchen informs Alexis.  Ouch!  An annoyed Alexis puts in the tape anyways and two seconds in – Gretchen is laughing as Alexis fumbles over multiple words in her interview.  “You can tell you are a little nervous,” Gretchen kindly tells Alexis.  Then Gretchen tells Alexis to get a hosting coach. 

Now the real actress of the group, Heather, is headed out for a TV audition.  Heather is determined to fit her career in with her family. Terry is a little concerned about the hours and one minor detail, the job shoots in Canada.  “Isn’t this amazing life enough?” Terry asks Heather.  Although Heather is grateful she tells her hubby, ”I don’t do anything for myself.”   Maybe Heather should stick with her pet project of opening up a restaurant.  Then like any good husband, Terry tells his wife she should do whatever makes her happy.   

Gretchen is at home folding Slade’s laundry, while inviting all the ladies to Vegas for her big Pussycat Doll performance.  “You don’t fold a thing until you have a ring,” Tamra informs Gretchen.  So far it seems all the ladies are up for the Vegas trip, even Vicki. 

Alexis serves her husband a drink and wants to talk  with him about hiring a hosting coach. Jim is reluctant about Alexis working on anything outside the house.  “I really think you need to think long and hard if you are willing to give up time a away from the family to take on another career,” Jim lectures Alexis.  ”I don’t want to be a stay-at-home mom now,” Alexis tells the cameras.  But for some reason Alexis can’t say those words to Jim. 

Slade and Gretchen arrive in Vegas for her big Pussycat Doll performance.  “Is this what it feels like to be a star?” Gretchen asks the cameras after arriving in her large hotel suite.  With only one practice left before her show, Gretchen is getting nervous about her voice.  The next morning it’s rehearsal time and Gretchen is working with the pussycat doll choreographer.  “I don’t sing on a mic, usually I sing in the shower,” is Gretchen’s excuse for her voice being off.  No one in the club seems impressed with Gretchen’s voice; Slade is the only one clapping. 

All the couples have arrived in Vegas and they are ready to party!  After Gretchen checks out Tamra’s new itty bitty tittys, Gretchen tells the group how nervous she is.  “Why did I think this was a good idea?” Gretchen asks the housewives.  Vicki is being way too nice to Gretchen and Slade.  But then Vicki informs us of her plan,”Be nice to them, it confuses them.” 

Alexis is late to dinner with the other ladies, because she had a huge make-up malfunction.  Since Alexis’s nose is still healing, she hired a make-up artist to come to her hotel room.  It was like Alexis was on an episode of Punk’d, because this girl applied at least 15 layers of foundation.  Alexis looked like a drag queen, her face was dark brown!  After shooing the girl out of the room, Alexis had to clean her face and apply her own make-up! 

It’s performance time!  Gretchen is all blinged out and ready to hit the stage.  “Oh my gosh, the burlesque club looks like a strip club,” Jesus Barbie tells the cameras. It’s the pussycat dolls, not a Christian rock band.  But like a good friend, Alexis goes back stage and prays with Gretchen before she performs. 

So how did Gretchen do?  Well, we will find out next week!
