The Real Housewives Of Orange County Recap: Raining Tears In Costa Rica

June 05, 2012 07:34 PM by Megan Thompson

The Real Housewives Of Orange County is all new tonight on Bravo. Alexis is still fuming about the girls ambushing her at dinner, but she is especially hurt that Gretchen didn’t stick up for her. This week the girls get wild in the jungle, but Vicki can’t stop crying! Keep reading to see if Heather Dubrow can actually loosen up and have some fun.

We return to the scene of the phony intervention with Alexis.  After verbally attacking Alexis, Heather just wants to hug it out. Talk about being phony!  

Alexis is obviously upset and leaves dinner feeling very beat up.  Gretchen tries to go after her friend, but Alexis wants nothing to do with her.  “I feel like I’m responsible,” Gretchen cries to the other girls.  You kinda are Gretch – you should have stuck up for your friend!  Vicki is the only person who sticks up for poor Lex, by pointing out that all the women are materialistic and phony.  Amen sister!  Since Gretchen failed at comforting Alexis, Vicki heads off to have her try at it. 

It’s Alexis’s last day in the jungle and the girls are headed to the beach.  Heather stops by Alexis room to apologize for the night before.  Well it wasn’t really an apology, it went something like this.  Heather tells Alexis that she did feel bad that she was so upset last night, but ya know we all have stuff to work on.  Alexis is over the arguing and is just ready to hit the beach. 

Heather is in her element when she arrives at the gorgeous beach and there is a bottle of “champs” waiting for her.  Let me guess, Heather is going to come out with her own line of “champs”.  At the beach Alexis steals Gretchen away to discuss last night’s dinner drama.  Alexis explains that she was beat up pretty bad at dinner, but what hurt more was that Gretchen didn’t have her back. Gretchen is just mad that Alexis let Vicki in the room and not her.  The two don’t end the conversation on good terms and Alexis doesn’t know if their friendship can recover.

Alexis can’t wait to get home, so she blows the women air kisses and heads to the airport.  Once Lex leaves, Heather comments that the group is having more fun.  Trashy Tamra comes out and she has a new sidekick- Gretchen. 

Tamra starts pulling Gretchen’s pants off to show off her “hot body.”  Of course, Vicki is appalled at Tamra’s inappropriate behavior.  It is also Gretchen’s mission to pull the stick out of Heather’s ass.  Yes, please do!  Tamra and Gretchen then dance and grab Heather’s boobs.  Ms. Fancy Pants is not happy – what are all her rich friends going to think of her trashy new friends?

The next adventure Vicki has planned is for each of the girls to plant a baby tree in the rain forest.  Vicki even grabs a tree for Alexis, so if they come back she can show her.  Good luck finding those trees in a large rainforest. Then Vicki breaks out in tears because she thinks about her own death.  I think Vicki has a case of jungle fever ”I’m sad and I’m happy at the same time,” she tells the women. 

The last and final adventure of the trip is white water rafting.  Tamra makes a joke they are going to need Alexis’s large life preservers.  Please Tamra, stop acting like you are so natural now – you just got your implants removed! This poor guide on the raft – all the women do is scream like little girls.  I don’t think Vicki stopped screaming.  “It’s freakin scary,” Gretchen tells the cameras.  All the girls agree that was the scariest thing they have ever done.  Vicki breaks down crying again, because she was so scared and she thinks she will have nightmares.  The girls make a pact that their next trip will only be about cabanas and margaritas.

Vicki, Gretchen and Tamra head out for a beer.  Now that Heather is gone, they feel like they can enjoy a beer instead of champs.  Once again, Vicki breaks down crying and this time it’s about Don.  “I’m afraid he is going to be sad without me,” Vicki cries. The guilt of the divorce is taking a huge toll on Vicki.  Plus, Briana eloping has broken her heart.  Vicki admits that she just can’t stop crying, but knows that she is in a better place. 

What did you think of tonight’s tearful RHOC episode?  Is Vicki having a nervous breakdown?  Let us know what you think, leave us a comment below.

    All the women except Vicki were inauthentic, hypocritical and vicious. There was no reason for Heather and Tamra to attack her and then Gretchen. Alexia was classy and gracious even though she was clearly heartbroken. The way the women tried to apologize (not) and then make it all about them showed how ridiculous and mean they were. If Alexia talks at all about material things, look at who she is competing with.

    Tamra is the queen of the mean girls with Gretchen and Heather as her handmaidens. They wanted to put Alexis down and bully her when they are phony themselves. Alexis is superficial but she showed she was tough by the way she handled Tamra and gave it to her right back. Kudos to her! I was disgusted by Gretchen and her behavior especially whining about how hard it was on her. Really! Vicki was more the person she used to be before Tamra got to her. Good that she did not move to the dark side!! The problem seems to be that Bravo rewards troublemakers who rip into their fellow housewives. I read that Tamra makes $350,000. and is the second highest paid OC wife. How terrible is that!!

    Tamra, you are vulgar, insulting, low class and hurtful. You think you are all that? I hope they remove you next season because I don’t enjoy the show with you in it. Gretchen, you betrayed your friend, period. You’re trying hard to be close to Tamra who did you nothing but damage during the last few seasons. Heather, comm’on… you are so jealous with Alexa! you and Tamra. You guys can’t hold a candle to her and so you try to destroy her. Heather, if you watch that show, you are more phoney than Alexa just because you married an old rich guy.. pretending to be high and mighty and greater than thou. .. you are the phoney one and ugly too!!!

    The girls were bullying Alexis. They were telling her that they don’t want to always here about what she has, what she’s done and all that. Heather mentioned about her and Terry were thinking about getting a particular car; then Alexis went on about the cars they have. I work with a lady just like Alexis and she too likes to ‘one up’ you; it’s annoying. It is a sign of insecurity and wanting to impress, to be better than everyone else. I understand Gretchen’s position. If she doesn’t say anything, Gretchen would begin resenting Alexis and not wanting to be around her to hear all her self absorbed talk. Or she can tell her about herself and be accused of not being Alexis’ friend. Bully seems to be the catch phrase now. So when you tell someone something that they don’t want to hear, they cry and call you a bully.

    The ladies were NOT bullying Alexis. It seems that bully is the catch phrase of the season, and anytime someone says something to someone that they don’t like, then the person cry for sympathy and call you you a bully. I work with a lady just like that. No matter what anyone else says or what anyone else accomplishes, she has done it better or has more. It is annoying to the point that no one likes to talk to her because if you say something she would say people are hating on her or jealous of her. Alexis is just like that; she always has to ‘one up’. That is what Peggy was saying last season and now what the ladies were saying in Costa Rica. She goes on and on and on as if she needs to impress people. And as Tamara was saying ‘nobody cares’. It is not bullying; they are saying STOP TALKING ABOUT YOURSELF SO MUCH.

    Tamra is a mean girl, but really…Alexis is the ultimate fake. I love how everyone on this blog falls for Alexis’s tears.

    She is fake… and despite the fact that Tanmra is a total beeotch about it, there is definitely some silver lining in her comments to Alexis. And props to Gretchen for actually not being a yesman (or yeswoman) and really laying out for what it is… BUT… it could’ve probably been done behind closed doors.
