The Real Housewives Of Orange County Recap: Performance Time

May 01, 2012 07:18 PM by Megan Thompson

The Real Housewives Of Orange County is all new tonight on Bravo.  All the girls are ready to watch as Gretchen Rossi takes the stage for her big Pussycat doll performance. Keep reading to find out if she shines or flops.

It’s Gretchen’s Vegas debut!  Gretchen takes the stage in a blinged out leotard and announces the Pussycat dolls.  Brooks was a little too excited to see the dancers.  “Hell, I could be a gynecologist now,” Tamra tells the cameras after watching the half-naked girls.  Alexis denies that Jim is enjoying any part of the sexy dancers - yeah right! Once the real singers leave the stage, Gretchen enters for her performance.  Gretchen belts out her rendition of “Fever” and it’s definitely her own version. ”I felt like I was off, but whatever,” Gretchen tells all her friends.  All the ladies lie to Gretchen and tell her what a good job she did.  Good thing it’s Vegas and everyone is drunk and doesn’t really care.

After the performance, Vicki and Tamra give Gretchen some birthday presents.  Gretchen is blown away that Vicki gives her a present and even apologizes.  The friendship is short-lived when Vicki demands that Gretchen apologize to her. “You shouldn’t expect an apology back,” Gretchen tells the cameras. 

The next morning Slade toasts to Gretchen’s success.  Slade encourages Gretchen to continue to follow her dreams, just like he has. What?! It seems like Gretchen is Slade’s meal ticket right now. 

Back in the OC, Vicki takes Brooks to the other house she is trying to sell.  Vicki is upset that she has lost over $1 million dollars on the home. Vicki starts to cry, because this was supposed to be her and Don’s retirement house.  “I know I’m going to be in a better place emotionally,” Vicki cries to Brooks.  Vicki dries her tears, because she had to head back to work.

After a lot of praying, Alexis has decided she wants to meet with a hosting coach.  Alexis hints that Jim got a different answer from prayer, but she doesn’t care.   The coach watches Alexis’s last segment on the local news.  The coach basically tells Alexis to watch her cleavage and tone down her sexuality.  “I’m feeling a little bit beat up,” Alexis complains after the coach critiques her. 

It’s a double date! Gretchen and Slade meet up with Heather and Terry for a nice dinner out.  In casual conversation, Gretchen mentions that she would love to do Broadway.  Heather nods her head in agreement, but off camera she doesn’t think Gretchen has that strong of a voice.  Heather than brings up that she is still trying to figure out Alexis. ”She’s phony,” Terry blurts out. 

Vicki heads out to dinner with Briana and her new boyfriend, Ryan.  Mama Vicki is excited to finally be meeting Briana’s new man. Than Briana announces she has a “bomb” to drop on her mother.  “A couple of days ago we drove out to Vegas…we found a chapel with a drive-thru window and we got married.”  The look on Vicki’s face is sheer terror!  “You didn’t ask me for her hand in marriage, you didn’t think it was important for me to know?” Vicki asks her new son-in-law.   After a big sip of her martini, Vicki says she can’t even talk.   Vicki then blames herself for not being a good role-model for her daughter.  “I want her to get it annulled,” Vicki tells the cameras.

    I can’t believe that Vicki’s daughter would dream of getting married without her Mom knowing and in that way. Vicki is about too tightly-wrapped to handle this. Although in a way maybe that was her way of showing her independence from her mother and showing Vicki that no matter how much she’s tried to control her, she is her own person. I’m sure Vicki will push her to have it anulled, and if she doesn’t get an anulment, she will make her have a “do over” wedding where Vicki will turn into a Mother-of-the-Bride-zilla. But let the girl do what she wants, she just had a horrible cancer scare for crying out loud. She realizes that life is too short.

    Alexis did a great job on General Hospital! I think Gretchen is being very ugly to Alexis!!!!!! I think Gretchen needs to wake up and smell the coffee!! Tamra is so fake and she is not a true friend!! I have never ever heard Alexis ssy a cross word to anyone!!! She is so sweet!!! I think Miss Tamra is SOOOOO JEALOUS OF ALEXIS AND SHE JUST CANT STAND IT THAT SHE IS GETTING JOBS ON A SOAP OPERA!!!!! Tamra just goes out of her way to say negative things about poor Alexis and Alexis will not even be anywhere around!! She just mentions her name out of the blue!!! How rude!!! Alexis has never ever did anything to Tamra!!!!JUST SAYIN!!!
