Season nine of The Real Housewives of Orange County has come to an end!
Following their drama-filled Bali getaway, the RHOC broads got together for yet another bitchy, boozy, fight-fueled scream fest… Hey to the yay...to the absolute cray cray!
The women are back on home soil following their trip from hell. Despite all the screaming and shouting that went down in Bali, most of the ladies seemed ready to just put things behind them. However, Tamra Judge wasn’t one of them. She revealed she hopped on an early flight home because she couldn’t handle the drama. If ya can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen, right? Well, Heather Dubrow called her as soon as she arrived back in the OC, and, Vicki Gunvalson informed the girls she wanted to throw a post-Bali shindig—but Tamra was apprehensive about going.
Heather told Tamra about some of the things Shannon Beador had said on their flight home from Bali. She claimed Shannon was chirping in Vicki’s ear and saying she should not contact Tamra. Essentially, Heather made it seem as though Shannon was drawing a line in the sand to create a bigger divide in the group.
Shannon awkwardly recapped the trip with her husband David. They were sitting oddly close, trying to be affectionate, and yet, no one was buying it. However, she claimed they are now sleeping in the same bed together every night. Yeah, and pigs can fly. She informed David that he needed to apologize to the Dubrows about the “spread your legs” comment he made 2,000 episodes ago. According to Heather, poor old Terry hasn’t slept since.
Vicki’s spacious Coto de Caza mansion was decorated to the nines for the Bali-themed dinner party. Creepy Brooks Ayers was in attendance, despite the ongoing drama with Tamra. Vicki and Tamra had sat down a few days prior to hash out the nonsense that went down on vacation. Vicki made it clear that Tamra should never open her mouth about her relationship—and being typical Tamra, she made up some bullshit excuse as to why she did In Tamra’s defense though, there are a total of 0 people that care about Vicki’s love tank or how good Creepy Brooks is in bed.
The rest of the squad arrived and were escorted to the back yard. Shannon and David arrived after the Dubrows, so David immediately apologized as he greeted Heather. Terry and Heather both nodded their heads and seemed about enthused as they would be if they were watching paint dry.
They sat down for dinner and it took roughly 4 minutes until all hell broke loose. Of course, Tamra felt the need to bring up the infamous “Shag, Marry, Kill” game from the Valentine’s Day party. She put Lizzie Rovsek on the spot in front of the entire table and demanded to know if she is ever going to admit she claimed Tamra’s hubby Eddie wants to have sex with her. Lizzie’s husband Christian, who has been the ONLY levelheaded human this season, stepped in and tried to shut the morons up. Good luck with that hon.
According to Tamra, Lizzie also said she wanted to have Mexican/Italian babies with Eddie. Tamra was pissed about that because as we know she has been playing the “woe is me card” all season regarding her ongoing custody battle with ex-husband Simon Barney.
But, then, Shannon reminded Tamra how betrayed she still feels by her. Naturally, Queen Heather jumped right in and told the whole table what Shannon said on the plane about Tamra. Regardless, Shannon was 100% right for being pissed at Tamra. She ran her mouth, lied, and now she has to deal with it. For the sake of ending this avenue of ridiculousness, Shannon eventually chose to take the high ground, claiming she has found personal peace and doesn’t want to fight with anyone anymore. Wow, what a refreshing statement from one of these bimbos.
However, the drama was soon back with a vengeance—and this time the spotlight fell on David and Terry—dredging up all their old issues. You may remember, a while back Terry infamously branded David a “penis” and “one of those construction guys” after he was unimpressed by what he deemed to be an insincere apology. David took it like a champ though, shaking his head and refusing to take the bait, because he may be the only one who gets just how truly crazy this group is.
Meanwhile, Vicki’s daughter, Briana, finally moved to Oklahoma, while Tamra’s son, Ryan, also moved in with his new girlfriend (who looks just like his mom...EEEWWW!!!). In addition, they are having a baby! Grandma Tamra has a ring to it, right?
In other news, Shannon and David decided to sell their Newport Coast estate and Lizzie decided to try for a third baby after her 35th birthday. Finally, Heather will be starring on a new series.
There is no denying how crazy and petty this season has been, but the drama is far from over still as we still have the upcoming 3-part finale to get through.
