The Real Housewives Of Orange County Recap: Brianna Or Brooks?

April 15, 2013 06:28 PM by Megan Thompson

The Real Housewives Of Orange County is all new tonight on Bravo.  Brianna is living with her mom, but if Brooks comes back into Vicki’s life – will Brianna and baby move out?  Plus, we get to meet the new housewife.

Alexis stops over Vicki’s house to visit Brianna and the new baby, Troy.  There is a lot of oohing and aahing over the baby – he is pretty darn cute!  The three ladies then sit down for lunch and talk about how much Vicki loves having Brianna at home.  When Alexis asks Vicki about Brooks there is definitely an awkward tension between mother and daughter.  “I told her as long as I’m paying rent here and my son is here, I don’t want Brooks in this house,” Brianna tells the cameras. When Alexis pushes if Brooks and Vicki are broken up – Vicki can’t answer.  “I want you to find a good guy,” Brianna tells her mom.  It’s obvious that Vicki is putting her daughter first – over her man- for now.

Ms. Dubrow strolls into her man’s office and tells him, ” I want my breasts back!”  She is only half joking, but only because she has more pressing issues to talk to Terry about. A magazine wants to photograph the Dubrow’s mansion, but Terry isn’t pleased it’s for an inside feature and not a cover!  “If it’s not a cover, why would we do it?” Terry asks.  Oh – the problems rich people have!

The two blonde BFFs, Gretchen and Tamra, are shopping for baby Troy.  Tamra feels she is close to Brianna and wants to give the baby something, no matter what the status of her friendship is with Vicki.  Right away, Gretchen makes the shopping trip about her own biological clock ticking.  She grabs a baby and runs around in heels pushing a stroller.  Gretchen thinks she is ready for motherhood, but Tamra isn’t so sure. 

Brianna and the baby stop by Vicki’s work to discuss the living situation.  “I think you have been hard and opinionated on Brooks,” Vicki tells her daughter.  The only thing the two can agree on is that they will agree to disagree on the whole Brooks subject. Brianna knows that her mom is talking to Brooks, so she doesn’t believe her that they are broken up.  Brianna is adamant that she will leave if her mom wants to have Brooks over the house. 

“Oh my gosh I love it,” Lydia from the magazine gushes to Heather about her house.  Lydia tells her all about The Beverly Hills Life Style magazine, but Heather doesn’t care about anything but being on the cover.  Lydia can’t promise the cover, it’s something they will have to think about.  But Lydia does share that she is friends with Alexis, which of course Heather frowns upon. 

“If it doesn’t pan out – I’m screwed,” Tamra says about her new business venture.  Tamra is hanging out at her fitness studio, which just so happens to be right across the street from Vicki’s office.  Vicki stops by the new studio to check it out and grill Tamra about the business.  The two are actually on speaking terms and even plan for a drink later that night.

Now we get to see the personal side of Lydia at home with her two sons.  “Doug and I both grew up with money,” she tells the cameras. She also admits to being a total princess and liking things her way.  But just like her friend, Alexis, she and her husband are very religious.  Do we have another Jesus Jugs?  I have a feeling Tamra isn’t going to like this new girl. 

It’s the first time in seven months that Tamra and Gretchen are out together. You can tell the two are nervous, it’s like they are on a first date.  “You were like my sister,” Tamra starts the conversation.  Vicki just can’t get over that Tamra just didn’t really care about their friendship.  Finally, Tamra admits that she wants Vicki to be happy – even with Brooks.  The two both apologize and cheers to moving on.

Tamra is back at her unfinished fitness center and she is meeting with a caterer.  She wants to host a girls party in the space before it is finished, just so she can share this event with her friends.

Vicki takes a glass of wine to her backyard and calls Tamra.  She must need some of that liquid courage, because she wants to ask Tamra about bringing Alexis to her dinner.  “Are you joking? Tamra asks her.  But Vicki isn’t joking, so Tamra finally gives in.   

What did you think of tonight’s episode?  If it was too boring, it looks like things heat up next week between Tamra and Alexis.

    This is just a show about wealthy people leading wealthy lives.
    I didn’t care for the new housewife, who seemed immature
    and self involved. Not sure what she adds to this group.
    In all, boring.

    Vicki, kick your daughter out already! She’s selfish. Brianna is living in your house with a family and a man she got pregnant by quickly but expects you to not date Brooks. Oh wow, she’s a hypocrite. That chick has a lot of nerves.

    I am no big fan of Vicki’s. Nonetheless, she is a grown woman. She should date whomever she wishes. Good or bad, it is her life, home and choice. If the kids follow up on their threat of moving out, LET THEM. Darned if my adult children are EVER going to dictate my choices!

    Vickies facelift did NOTHING for her.
    Just let her say with Brooks and she will be in for a world of hurt.
    Alexis has NO redeaming value of this show. Cry baby. Lydia is coocoo. Took in to much of her Mothers second had POT smoke. Gretchen is on another planet = not a good time for a baby. The rolls royce was the kicker. Half the time Ssade can’t make child support payment. How crazy was that. Should have left the shet stirrer, Laurie out. No redeeming value Tamra has a serious ANGER problem and needs professional help Think I am done with this mess.
