'Real Housewives of Orange County' Recap: Tamra Barney May Need to Give Gretchen Rossi Her Friendship Bracelet Back

Gretchen Rossi Well, that was an unexpected blast of positivity and happiness on The Real Housewives of Orange County. The ladies' trip to Canada actually ended on a fun, happy note, and a good time was had by all -- that never happens when Housewives travel.

One minute there was nearly a knock-down, drag-out fight on the slopes with screaming that could be heard across the land, and the next they were knocking back shots and laughing and joking with one another. Of course, there was some drama in between, but the happy ending did throw me a little, especially because Vicki Gunvalson and Lauri Peterson went an entire evening without screaming at each other.

I have to tell you, I keep trying to see Lauri's side of things, but all I see is her spinning tales and bringing up irrelevant crap that happened in the past (or may not have happened at all). Regarding the email (or phone call?) her husband's ex-mother-in-law sent Vicki SEVEN YEARS AGO, it sounds like it's Jeana Keough she should be mad at, not Vicki. I thought she had a much deeper issue with Vicki than that.

I also couldn't stand the way Lauri kept inappropriately interjecting into the conversation at the first dinner tonight, just trying to incite Vicki. She's a trouble maker looking for some attention, and I'm ready for her to leave yesterday. She and Vicki agreed to sit down and talk things out after the trip, but Vicki has no intention of doing so, and I don't blame her.

Also barking down Vicki's neck was Gretchen Rossi. Could she please get over it? Yes, Vicki implied that Gretchen might be a gold digger five years ago, but so did pretty much everyone else in the world. Move on, Gretchen. Vicki has admitted infidelity in her marriage, what more do you want? Oh, that's right -- the destruction of Tamra and Vicki's friendship.

Also bubbling to the surface was all the tension between Gretchen and Tamra Barney. Tamra's starting to see the old Gretchen again and caught her in what she and Heather Dubrow claim was a lie about an acting gig. It seems pretty shady, and while they hugged it out and all, Tamra definitely seems leery of their relationship. Given Gretchen's track record, that's probably wise.

OMG moment of the night -- Tamra getting her tongue stuck on the ice. Seriously?

Do you think Lauri and Vicki will ever make up? Do you think Gretchen and Tamra's friendship is headed for disaster?
