'Real Housewives of Orange County' Recap: Lauri Picks the Worst Time to Tell Vicki About Brooks

vicki gunvalsonOkay. So, there are two things that need discussing after tonight's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. One, Lauri Peterson feeling the need to tell Vicki Gunvalson that her ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, is one of the world's biggest dirtbags in front of everyone. And two, Gretchen Rossi being a "liarface".

Let's start with Lauri.

While the girls were dress shopping for Tamra's third wedding gown, Lauri thought it was the perfect time to -- awkwardly -- tell Vicki that she heard that Brooks was dating a 21-year-old porn star. Or as Vicki kept calling it, a "pornographic star". The way she started giving Vicki the information was just weird. She was kind of acting like she didn't want to be telling Vicki about Brooks (even though she was loving every minute of it), so it was this long, drawn-out, super uncomfy conversation in front of everyone. If Lauri's reason for telling Vicki was, like she said, "because she would want to know", pull her aside, for god's sake! I know Lauri has it out for Vicki, but that whole exchange was just awful and totally unnecessary. That said, I'm happy she told Vicki. If there's a shred of a chance of her ever quitting the god-awful Brooks, this has to be it.

And then there was Gretchen. Or as she's otherwise known, Liarface.

Apparently, Gretchen told both Heather and Tamra that she was offered a part on a show called Malibu Country -- a show that Heather was offered a part on, also. But turns out, the only part Gretchen was offered on the show was NOTHING. She lied! And the worst part is, she told Tamra that she turned down the part so she could go wedding dress shopping with her. What the hell? Who does that?

Clearly, Gretchen has some serious issues if she can flat-out lie like that. I mean, like Heather said, perhaps it was a "colossal misunderstanding", but odds of that are slim. I'm sure in the next few weeks, we'll get to hear her excuse for telling the girls she was offered a role, but I've gotta be honest: I doubt anyone's going to buy it. And it looks like there might be a new outcast in town.

What did you think of Lauri telling Vicki about Brooks?

i thought it bull that laurie did that, even though i don't like vicky she is a trouble maker.but who does that unless you are really out to hurt that person.laurie needs to be off the show.

I have no problem with what Lori did. Vicki talks about and judges everyone around her. She took Alexis over at the Bridal shop and tried to start trouble with Gretchen. That is just plain mean. So, in my book, she got exactly what she deserved. Karma is a bi*ch.

I think Lauri is despicable. Vicki helped her out when she was poor and down on herself. She gave her a job so she could support herself and her children. Now that Lauri is welathy again, she thinks she can bite the hand that once fed her. Not cool, Lauri, not cool at all.

Laura Champlain

Lauri is jealous of Vicki being on the show and being the head housewife and the fact  is the powers that be hired Lauri to start the drama. I mean come on now she's been welcomed back for that reason and that reason only. The show always needs the trouble makers or it would boring and unwatchable. I just laugh it off as it's so obvious why she's now part of the show!

what comes around goes around!!

I like Vicki-she's who she is. It was deliberate what Lauri did. she's a nasty gal-but then again, that's why we all watch...isn't it? :)

Ingrid Gutt

vickie deserves it,she cheated on all her men, with many men, and gretchen i feel sorry for, she so desperatley wants to be accepted, but is going at it the wrong way

Kay Dickerson Wills

Lauri was wrong to tell Vicki. For one thing she didn't have all the facts and there were questions she couldn't answer Vicki. Why tell someone something if you don't know what's really going on. She did it to hurt Vicki and that's the only reason she told her.

I am so angry with the gretchen stuff. She was a good friend to tamra and vicki HATES that they should of not been talking about her. As for brookes I think laurie was given the oppurtunity and jumped on it. Her and vicki dont see each other often. Hey makes for good tv right. Vickii has slandered everyone has said mean things especially yrs ago when laurie was a houswife. Do you remember when laurie got her car???I love Miss Fantsy pants love love love her. Vicki likes to stir the pot ALL THE TIME! Now that things are not so great with her personal life ITS NOT RIGHT! Get out of here. She burnt bridges "evil eye" let her boil! Sick of hearing poor vicki! She wont be signing next season because she isnt looking so nice anymore. Let me weap! um not You fling dirt you get dirt. Tamra choose your cards wisley because right now you look like vickis puppet!

Vicki got what she deserves, She should have listened to her daughter she tried to tell her mom but Vicki didn't want to hear it, everybody else tried to tell her but again she wouldn't listen. I think she is lonely and doesn't want to see any one else happy. She is the biggest trouble maker that is on that show. Hey like the saying goes "what goes around will surely come around". Feel sorry for Vicki "I THINK NOT"
