Though we met Sarah Winchester briefly earlier this season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, we really haven't seen much more of her ... until tonight. What we saw tonight was, to quote Vicki Gunvalson, "freakin' crazy."
It all went down at Heather Dubrow's couples' "champs" (that's champagne if you're not fancy like that) bowling party. See, Heather likes to pair extremes like bowling and good champagne and running errands in L.A. via helicopter. Silly things like that, you know. Anyway, Sarah (who Bravo classifies as "Friend of the Housewives") wasn't even invited by Heather, but she's Gretchen Rossi's BFF, and she apparently asked her to come. Boy was she sorry she did. Talk about the guest from HELL.
While Vicki and Gretchen hadn't seen each other since the major blowup at the bunco party, in which Gretchen screamed so loudly at Vicki that she damaged her vocal chords, they were both determined to behave themselves. Vicki even admitted some remorse (not to Gretchen, but still), and neither wanted to fight. But oh did Sarah.
She must have been wasted. She had to be wasted, right? Either that or she's certifiable -- I'm talking Danielle Staub-level crazy. When egging Gretchen on didn't work, she decided to go confront Vicki herself. She plopped herself down in the middle of conversation Vicki was having with Heather with her guns blazing. When Vicki said no, she didn't want to talk to her and asked her what she wanted, Sarah lost it.

No matter how many times Vicki walked away or tired to ignore, Sarah wouldn't stop. She was relentless and talking in circles, screaming out once in awhile that Vicki was being rude. Vicki gets huge kudos for showing the restraint she did. Way to go Vicki! And Gretchen gets props too for telling Sarah she was wrong and trying to talk her down. United against craziness they were.
In the aftermath, Heather and Terry were talking about how Alexis Bellino and Sarah would make perfect BFFs. "Alexis is dumb, but Sarah is scary," Heather said. Exactly.
Honestly, I can't wait to see more of Sarah, hopefully sober to see just what we're working with here. Maybe she just had a little too much champs while bowling, or maybe that's just her. The latter would certainly spice things up majorly. Oh, and a scary fact: Sarah is heiress to the Winchester Rifle fortune. That girl around guns sounds like a really bad idea.
What did you think of Sarah Winchester tonight -- drunk or just crazy? Or both? Do you want to see more of her on the show?
