The Real Housewives Of Orange County Recap: The Cake Crasher

June 19, 2012 07:24 PM by Megan Thompson

The Real Housewives Of Orange County is all new tonight on Bravo. Tamra Barney is back from Bora Bora and ready to show off her bling to the other housewives. The drama heats up at Heather Dubrow’s name changing party, when someone eats the cake before it’s served (gasp)! Keep reading for all the details from part one of the RHOC season finale.

Tamra finally snagged her younger man and has the ring on her finger to prove it.  Now that she has some new bling ( to cover up her ex-husband’s name  scar on her finger) she is ready to show it off.  Tamra meets Heather and Gretchen for dinner, so she can gloat about her amazing trip and engagement ring.  The girls are happy for Tamra, but they aren’t too surprised Eddy proposed on the trip.  What Gretchen is surprised about is how Tamra can jump into marriage again.  We all know that Gretchen is terrified of marrying Slade, but that’s a whole another conversation.  An obvious person missing from this meeting is…Vicki.  Ms. Vicki is way too busy fixing hanging out with Brooks. Good thing Tamra’s new BFF is Gretchen, since Gretchen will throw an amazing bachelorette party. All the girls toast to hoping the third time is a charm for Tamra. 

Alexis meets her friend Sarah for dinner, so she can vent about the whole Costa Rica drama.  You know Sarah – the one who attacked Vicki at Heather’s “bowling and champs” party.  The entire phony intervention is described to Sarah, who assures her friend she is definitely not phony. ”They are mistaking kind for phony,” Alexis tells Sarah.  But what’s most disturbing to Alexis is how Gretchen didn’t defend her – she still wants Gretchen to apologize.  Since all the girls are going to be at Heather’s party, Alexis invites Sarah for some back-up.  

Heather is prepping for her “Dubrow” name party with her florist, caterer and about 20 other staff members.  It must be really nice to be a Dubrow.  And get this – each woman is getting a champagne glass with a diamond in it and one of them is real.  Who does that?  Fancy Pants is pleased with everything, except her cake with her initials on it.

I have to say it looks like a sweet 16 cake.  The cake is black and white with hot pink accents and a tacky boy – so not Heather.

Vicki is glamming for Heather’s party and reveals she thinks it is way too soon for Tamra to be getting married again. When Brooks arrive to pick Vicki up, he surprises her with a fur coat.  Uh-oh, looks like PETA is going to be all over Vicki for wearing a mink coat. Vicki doesn’t care what anyone thinks, she loves it! 

The guests begin arriving at the party, and of course are impressed with the decor and the mansion. When Alexis walks in, Heather is appalled that she brought Sarah along.  ”She looks like she belongs in Vegas, stripper,” Heather comments on Sarah.  Heather kisses the ladies hello – who’s phony now?  

It’s still early on in the party, but Alexis has to escort Sarah to the bathroom to tell her to slow down on drinks.  Stripper Sarah is getting a little too loaded off those pomegranate martinis.  Then Jeanna (the former housewife) walks in with her daughter, apparently Gretchen invited her.  “Please be my friend again,” Tamra cries to Jeanna after they talk all their issues out. Vicki continues to tell everyone that will listen that Brooks bought her a fur coat. It could have been a drinking game in this episode; she must have said it 30 times.

Then the real drama begins, when Dina (Heather’s friend) tells Heather that Sarah took a bite of the bow off the cake.  The look on Heather’s friend is priceless and she storms off to tell the other OC ladies.  “What is wrong with this girl? Is she back to the booze?” Heather explodes to the cameras. 

 Tamra runs and drags Sarah to the cake and asks her if she ate the bow.  “I ate a part of the bow, just a piece of it, because I have a sugar problem,” Sarah explains.  Alexis thinks everyone is over-reacting and doesn’t want the girls ganging up on Sarah.  “I’ll give you my f*%^ing credit card,” Sarah yells at Heather.  Oh, no she didn’t!  Yes, she did and Heather is appalled.  Then Sarah calls Heather fake and pretentious.  Ouch!

Next week, the party goes farther downhill when Vicki and Tamra get in a screaming match about Brooks.

    Sometimes I wonder why I watch this show. I know people that are dirt poor and have more class than any of these women. Although, Heather (as well as her husband) are for the most part a class act. It must have been for the show that she didn’t kick those two idiots, Sarah and Alexis, out of her house immediately! This show just gets more comical each time I watch it.

    Just when I was starting to feel sorry for Alexis (a little bit) she brings this creature to the party. It might seem that the eating a piece of the bow was not such a big deal but Heather’s right; who does that? Obviously this little trick of a girl is reaching for the spot light and Alexis is an idiot if she thinks they are “real” friends.

    Heather had every right to be upset. That was her, bought and paid for, party where she could set the rules. It was tacky and inappropriate for Sarah to pinch off of the bow. But then, nobody said Sarah had class. Vicky was sickening (as usual). Tamra is a busy body and sticks her nose into other’s business. Jeana’s daughter was silly and childish with the plastic bag shenanigans.

    I was disgusted with what was happening at Heather’s party. I can’t imagine spending ALL THAT MONEY on a lavish party and then fighting with a drunk guest over a piece of a bow on a cake! I can only believe that BRAVO picked up the tab for that shindig as they seem to do for everything. Rumor has it they are paying for Eddie and Tamra’s wedding as well, of course, as trheir engagement trip to Bora Bora. They offered the same deal to Gretchen but she turned it down – wasn’t ready to commit to Slade. Are we talking “scripted” realty – just saying.

    My one time friend in grade school was going to be on this show with her diamonds or something. When she was on my facebook/deleted after I found out she was blocking me, she raved to watch this show. I agree with one persons comment, rich does not make you classy. These women just through insults and gossip and we are supposed to be entertained by that? Go do something useful with your lives.Rated LL Lame & losers from orange county.
