'Real Housewives of Orange County' Season Finale Part 1 Recap: Sarah Winchester Takes the Crazy Cake

Sarah Winchester and Heather DubrowHeather Dubrow’s big fancy pants party to celebrate her name change set the stage for the drama tonight on The Real Housewives of Orange County. And my what an extraordinary stage it was. From the breathtaking views to the insane flower arrangements to the sparkly cake at the center of it all, it was high class ... guests excluded.

Everything started out nice and civilized, with Vicki Gunvalson showing off her new fur and telling anyone and everyone that, "Brooks bought it." When Jeana Keough and her daughter Kara showed up, it looked like sparks (or something liquid) might fly, but instead Tamra Barney and Jeana reconciled -- or sort of did. At least Tamra issued an apology through her fake tears, so that was something.

Then Sarah Winchester had to go and take the cake. Literally.


Not content with all the food being passed at the party, Sarah -- a clearly drunk Sarah -- snapped off a piece of the bow on Heather's cake and ate it. Oh yes, she did.

Heather was 50 shades of furious, but if Sarah had just apologized, she might have dismissed her and moved on. Of course, Sarah wasn't about to apologize; instead she got belligerent.

When Heather asked her why she would do such a thing, Sarah responded, "Because I wanted to." She quickly changed her story to some lame sugar problem she supposedly has and tried to stick with that. From there she started spewing on about how she couldn't believe Heather would be so upset about something so minor, and Alexis Bellino was right there backing her up and chastising the women for overreacting and ganging up on Sarah just like they'd ganged up on her in Costa Rica.

"Get over it," Sarah repeatedly told Heather, then she called her fake and pretentious. As Heather pointed out, she hopped back on that hamster wheel we saw the last time she brought the drama, where she just kept repeating herself ad nauseum. It was ugly.

Sure, it was just cake, but no one in their right mind would do what Sarah did. I don't blame Heather for being pissed, and given Sarah's belligerent attitude and refusal to acknowledge that what she'd done was wrong, I don't think she overreacted at all.

It was a major party foul, and that's two BIG strikes for Sarah. Next week I'm guessing she'll be out of there. 

Do you think Heather and the other Housewives overreacted when Sarah ate the cake?
