'Real Housewives of Orange County' Recap: Vicki Gunvalson Just Can't Quit Brooks Ayers

Vicki GunvalsonOh Vicki, why? That's what everyone wants to know when it comes to her relationship with Brooks Ayers. While she's been wishy washy to date, tonight on The Real Housewives of Orange County, it became more than clear that they're not done at all.

Briana busted her saying that while her mom says they're broken up, they spend all day and night on the phone together. I'm sure they're also sneaking around seeing each other in person.

Briana, however, gave Vicki a pretty firm ultimatum. "I told her as long as I’m paying rent here and my son is here, I don’t want Brooks in this house," she said to the camera. For now, it seems that Vicki is honoring that, but I doubt it's going to last given the lovesick way she's been moping about.


If anyone wants what's best for Vicki, it's Briana. No one likes this guy, and there's ample evidence he's shady. For some reason, Vicki doesn't seem to care.

“I think you have been hard and opinionated on Brooks,” Vicki told Briana. As would every good daughter when it comes to who their mother dates. Why Vicki can't see that she only wants what's best for her is baffling, but they say love is blind for a reason I suppose.

Tamra and Vicki also talked Brooks tonight when they sat down for an awkward dinner. While I don't think Tamra is without fault in their whole feud, I think she did nail it when she said that Vicki blames her for everyone hating Brooks because it's easier than blaming Briana. They did say they were sorry to each other again though, and it would be nice to see them start rebuilding that friendship. Of course, if/when Brooks comes back, it will all come crumbling down, so it may be short-lived if they do.

Tonight we also got to meet new Housewife Lydia McLaughlin, who upon first impression may be the most irritating Housewife of all time. From her voice to her proclaiming herself a princess who always gets her way, she was just unbelievable. Really. Is anyone really like that? No wonder she's friends with Alexis Bellino.

Speaking of Alexis, why the hell did Vicki invite her to Tamra's party? Talk about asking for drama, and previews for next week promise plenty of it when we see Tamra kicking Alexis out of said party. The O.C. is starting to heat up.

Do you think Vicki will eventually choose Brooks over Briana and everyone else? What do you think of Lydia?
