'Real Housewives of Orange County' Recap: Vicki Gunvalson Will Never Forgive Tamra Barney for This!

Tamra Barney

With only one episode left in the season, the chickens have come home to roost for this year's villain, Tamra Judge. The Real Housewives of Orange County put everyone through the emotional ringer this go 'round. That said, for all the revelations that came out of the final dinner in Bali, it was Vicki Gunvalson's total heartbreak learning the truth about Tamra that brought a lump to this recapper's throat.

Vicki, as an O.C. veteran, has done an unfailingly awesome job balancing cast members and friends this season. She and Shannon Beador got along like gangbusters even though Tamra (Vicki's erstwhile bestie) has spent most of the season trying to publicly shame and discredit Shannon for no particular reason. But all of Vicki's good-natured politicking proved to be for naught when she learned that, after saying one thing to her face, Tamra was still talking trash about Vicki's relationship with Brooks Ayers

The look on Vicki's face as the group of women sat at the dinner table that final night of vacation. She looked like she'd lost a best friend. Oh wait, she kind of just had. Oh my God, the expression of loss she was wearing. I've seen Vicki screaming in a ski-suit, I've seen her dancing on tables in Mexico, but I've never seen her look so heartbroken in all my days of show-watching, and that has been very many days indeed. Too many, some might argue. Then I would fight them in a cage and triumph because lo, I am surprisingly strong if not agile. 

More from The Stir: Tamra Barney Finally Gets What She Deserves

Tamra is already trying to spin things, but I think the damage is way too far done. She doesn't even have anyone on her side anymore! Initially, she had Heather Dubrow to come and kiss it better, but with Heather hearing some of the dirt Tamra was spreading around, I doubt that's going to be an alliance that lasts very long. Obviously Tamra's had her issues with Brooks for a long time. Hiding them from Vicki and gossiping about him around town was going to get back to her. Tamra has only herself to blame for the end of a tumultuous but very tried and true friendship. 

Do you think Vicki will ever forgive Tamra?

Vickie is ignorant and culturally unaware. Unbelievable she is a business owner. Maybe she should just to stay in her OC neighborhood and never venture out. She has behaved poorly on every venture outside OC including Napa, Bali and Mexico Clearly she cannot survive outside OC.

Tamra is a class one bitch. The other housewives put her to shame. Could never understand why she was on the show in the first place.She has absolutely no class whatsoever.

Bravo likes to fact check the girls via flashbacks so why don't they show us whether Lizzie said f#!k or marry to Tamra re kill shag marry. I know a lot of fans are curious, and tho I think Tamra stabs, I'm not sure Lizzie didn't say it after the way she talked to her own man on her birthday bus.. cmon bravo.

Heather and b her husband are idiots tamara is a lying bitch

Tamra is such an easy person to despise. She's a liar and a troublemaker. She's needy and attention seeking. She's fake and superficial. She's uneducated and inarticulate. The world is filled with 'Tamra-types' and she's as common as white bread.

Tama needs to learn how to shut her mouth.  She luvs to gossip, her husband looks like he's sick of her drama queen mentality.  Her ex wasn't too far off when he told her she dresses like a teenager & acts like a classless ho.  She belongs in a trailer park not OC.  All her back stabbing is coming around to bite her,ain't karma a bitch..  The show is fake anyway.  Vicki is full of it.  She deserves Brooks after how she treated Don.  I miss the old cast.  These snarky women now are annoying & not fun to watch

Vicki did the same as Tamera for six seasons. She is getting what she dished out. How soon we forget. She dished Simmon all the time and trashed everyone she got a chance to.

I think Vicki took some acting lessons this year, not very convincing...I think they all get what they deserve, along with their bravo pay $$...boohoo
