The Real Housewives Of Orange County Recap: Bras, Prom and Pinocchio

May 08, 2012 07:38 PM by Megan Thompson

The Real Housewives Of Orange County is all new tonight on Bravo. Vicki Gunvalson is in mourning, since her daughter announced she fled to Vegas to get hitched.  Tamra tries to cheer Vicki up by taking her bra shopping.  Keep reading for all the details from tonight’s RHOC episode and find out why it’s always about Vicki! 

Your only daughter has just dropped the bomb on you that she is married, so what do you do? You go bra shopping of course! Tamra wants to pick out some bras for her new small boobs, so she drags a somber Vicki out. If the girls are perky, maybe Vicki can be too!  “I’m looking for natural,” Vicki tells the sales lady. If you’re looking for natural, here’s a tip – remove the implants! The news of Briana’s marriage has caused Vicki to cry for a week, and it shows! Vicki’s face is so puffy she looks like a blowfish.  Tamra insists that Vicki looks fine, that’s what BFFs tell each other.  

Slade puts on his way too tight bike outfit and heads out for a ride.  The ride is so Slade can meet up with his biking buddy, who just happens to be Gretchen’s dad. Slade decides to have a serious talk, but who can focus with these old men in spandex? Basically Slade is ready to put a ring on Gretchen’s finger, but daddy isn’t so sure.  Gretchen’s dad wants Slade to clean up his reputation and his finances.  Slade might have to propose with a ring pop, but he is determined to put a ring on it!

The new BFFs, Tamra and Gretchen, meet up for some drinks and lunch. Vicki would be so jealous!  Tamra shares a big secret with Gretchen, that she wants to open up her very own fitness studio.  Tamra likes Gretchen’s positive energy; she knows Vicki would only list the negatives of opening a business. The conversation then turns to Gretchen’s relationship with Slade.  Gretchen is not willing to give up her financial security to marry Slade. 

It’s the launch party for Vicki and Tamra’s new wine club. Vicki thinks this would also be a good time to announce Briana’s marriage to her friends.  “Let’s just get it on the table and deal with it,” an embarrassed Vicki tells the cameras.  To get even with her daughter, Vicki also thinks this would be a great time to introduce Brooks to her kids.  Briana and Michael haven’t been interested in meeting the new man in Vicki’s life. 

The guests start arriving at the launch party and it looks like prom for the middle-aged.  Heather is the only housewife with enough fashion sense not to wear her hair up in a cheesy high-school up-do.  The party begins by Vicki tearfully announcing that Briana is now a married woman.  “Shut the front door,” is Heather’s reaction.  “Are you pregnant,” trashy Tamra yells out at Briana.  Very classy – Tamra.  “These ladies are a little out of their element here,” Heather mocks the women’s behavior at a classy event.

Brooks continues to ooze cheesiness when he talks. Vicki is eating up his lines, but Tamra doesn’t believe anything that is coming out of  Pinocchio’s Brook’s mouth.  Brooks actually tells Vicki, “I love your son as he was my own.”  Really?  You met him for five seconds!  The funniest line is when Brooks tells Tamra that her son is “the bomb.com.”  Tamra isn’t buying his bullshit.com.

To end the night, Vicki drags Briana into a room so she can meet her third dad Brooks.  To say this meeting is awkward is a huge understatement.  Brooks says some cheesy lines and Briana can smell his fakeness from a mile away.  The meeting ends when Briana tells mom that her relationship with her husband is “very different” from what she has with Brooks.  Vicki is mortified and feels she didn’t raise Briana to be so rude. 

Is Briana rude or does the truth hurt Vicki?  Let us know what you thought of tonight’s RHOC, leave us a comment below.

    You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see there’s something wrong with Brooks. There’s more than him trying to fit in. He’s phony through and through. My husband says if it looks too good to be true it probably is. I don’t know what’s going on with Vickie. Maybe remorse over how she treated Don. Who knows!
