'Real Housewives of Orange County' Recap: Lauri Peterson Drops a Big Bombshell About Brooks Ayers

RHOCWell, isn't Lauri Peterson just the holder of all of the O.C.'s dirty little secrets? She's appeared exactly twice this season on RHOC, and both times she's done nothing but dish some pretty dirty dirt. First, she told Gretchen Rossi all about Vicki Gunvalson's alleged affairs and time in bed with another woman. Then tonight, she came to Lydia McLaughlin's salsa party armed with some shocking accusations about Vicki's man, Brooks Ayers.

She said that he's dating her daughter's friend who may be a stripper/porn star. "She gets paid to do some questionable activities," Lauri told Tamra Barney. And here Tamra was all ready to move on and try to tolerate Brooks. This, of course, just reaffirmed every suspicion she and the whole world have had about him and his sneaky ways all along. 


Previews for next week show Vicki crying over it all, so it will be interesting to see how he worms his way out of this one. Since he was at Tamra's wedding this past weekend, we know he's still in the picture, so he definitely wormed somehow.

One thing is abundantly clear -- Lauri has it out for Vicki. She's determined to take her down one way or another. While I don't put anything by slimy Brooks, I do think it's pretty low for Lauri to be spreading these rumors about Vicki and her life. If what she says is true (or she believes it to be true), then she should go tell Vicki herself or shut her mouth.

Meanwhile it seems Gretchen and Slade Smiley are quickly becoming the couple to hate. Lydia was all over Slade, slamming him for whispering about her weight to Gretchen and calling her "cheeseburger," and would not let it slide. Then she called him out for calling Vicki "Miss Piggy," and when he denied it, she really tore into him. "Oh I see how you are. You're never going to take responsibility for anything." Pretty much.

As for Gretchen, Tamra may be trading her BFF bracelet in for one with Vicki. Tamra has started getting sick of Gretchen's me-me-me-I-I-I personality, and her whole tantrum about not going wedding dress shopping if Alexis Bellino goes was just childish and rude. If she doesn't show next week, things could be bad. Maybe that's why Tamra didn't ask her to be a bridesmaid?

Do you think what Lauri said about Brooks is true? Do you think Tamra and Gretchen's friendship will last?
