Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County ended with the ladies gathered around discussing their various disputes with Gretchen and Slade. BravoTV.com leaked some snippets from next week’s episode and while Gretchen and Slade are the primary targets for drama and fighting, another altercation also took place. Someone was evicted from the party, and you’ll never guess who!
The scene picks up with Lydia’s mom, Judy, confronting Vicki about being attacked while sitting on a couch in her home. Judy doesn’t even know Ryan, so initially assumes he’s Vicki’s son, not son-in-law. That’s quickly disproven as Ryan enters the conversation, complaining that Judy put her feet on their couch. Is he serious? Is that a reason to scream at a woman over twice your age?
That being said, he definitely doesn’t seem to actually be mad at Judy. He’s yelling at her and causing a scene, but let’s put things into perspective. He just flew home, is only there for a weekend before heading out overseas again, Vicki drives him absolutely crazy because she can’t help but stress out everyone around her constantly, and on top of all of that, the one weekend he is home they are throwing a huge party at his house, inviting every RHOC cast member, and filming all day long. I can feel his frustration.
However, his behavior is deplorable. Yelling, screaming and cursing at my beloved fairy dust aficionado. It’s clear Judy didn’t do anything. Can you even picture her telling him, “Who the fuck are you?” as he claims she did? I certainly can’t. He lost his temper and was completely out of control. Hopefully there’s an apology before all is said and done. What actually surprised me even more was how calm Briana was, and she seemed to stick up for him! I definitely expected her to try and diffuse things, but she just watched while he attacked Judy and Lydia, who, unfortunately, end up just leaving the party.
Vicki also uses her party as a platform to confront Gretchen and Slade once and for all. She criticizes him for making fun of women’s physical appearances and gives him a bottle of her bacon vodka, which he inspired her to make. Gretchen tells her to make a deadbeat dad vodka, which isn’t funny, doesn’t make any sense and is simply an excuse to pick a fight. She starts bringing up old drama and the rest of the ladies look on, stunned. The fight escalates and the clip ends with Vicki screaming at Slade, “Be careful of your tongue when you’re talking about women’s looks!”
Below I’ve included the preview for the entire episode, which will be season eight’s finale. After that, we have the three part reunion! If you just can’t help yourself and you’re curious about what’s to come, check out this post for pictures from the big day and some dish on what drama will unfold.
