'Real Housewives of Orange County' Recap: Tamra Judge Is Mad at Heather Dubrow for the Wrong Reason

Heather Dubrow Oh, Heather Dubrow. Truly, does pride goeth before the fall. We always knew the only woman in Orange County to ace every vocab quiz in the sixth grade would not hold her place in the sun forever. The collective gaggle of wenches have decided that Heather has grown too big for her britches. It's funny that this decision was made in the wake of Heather building a literal castle on a hill. But let's pretend we don't think jealousy has anything to do with it, shall we?

Heather has gotten a gig co-hosting Good Day L.A.! How will it impact her family life and how she relates to her friends? This sounds like a movie Holly Hunter would maybe star in if the year were 1991. Sadly, it is not. Heather is eager to share her news with her best friend Tamra "Stop Using Large Words" Judge. But Tam Tam is not pleased. 


Tam Tam is mad! Whyfore does she begrudge her friend's local television fluff news success? Because Heather spurned the gym run by Tam and Eddie "He Was Definitely a Stripper You Guys" Judge. The nerve! Tamra should actually be angry at Heather for being condescending and impossible. Just sayin'. 

I am about to say a thing that I once thought I would only utter when the three death-heads of the Apocalypse rode past on their skeletal steeds: Vicki Gunvalson was right. The Queen of Insurance gamely pointed out to Tamra that her anger at Heather was misplaced. Heather had no say then, and now she does and she's recruiting her friend. But Tamra will not hear reason. She is all hurt feelings and horrifying white inner-eye liner. She will have vengeance!

No, actually, she will just have petty gossip about Heather behind the woman's back. It's newbie Lizzie Rovsek who goads the twosome into fighting. Don't think I didn't see you hit the red button Rovsek. I'm onto your game. Heather didn't make things any easier by turning into an angry, squeaky, defensive jerk. Nobody came out of this episode smelling like a rose. Except for maybe Terry Dubrow -- can we revisit the fact that his brother STARTED QUIET RIOT? TAKE US OUT BOYS!


Do you think Tamra was overreacting?
