Damn, what an episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County that was. It was all straight-up, gut-wrenching tension that exploded in the final moments into a rage-filled dinner from hell that will go down in Housewives history.
Vicki Gunvalson should have known better than to invite Alexis Bellino to Tamara Barney's gym-warming party. More importantly, however, Alexis should have known NOT to go, even if Tamra grudgingly said it was okay for her to go. If she really was going with the best of intentions, she should have at least called Tamra first to feel her out and at least roughly smooth things over, but not Alexis, she just went. Bringing a last-minute plus one -- new girl Lydia McLaughlin -- was just an extra added rude and insensitive move on top of it all.
It was the perfect drama storm with a total Bachelor vibe to it, as Heather Dubrow pointed out, especially as the limos started rolling up.
