'Real Housewives of Orange County' Recap: Lydia Lights Into Gretchen and Slade
Don't underestimate Lydia McLaughlin. The newest member of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County is not one to mess with. If you don't believe me, just ask Gretchen Rossi and her slimy fiancé Slade Smiley.
Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven't watched Monday's episode: "Chicks and Salsa".
In tonight's episode, Lydia decided throw a salsa dancing party and invited all of the women to attend. Everything seemed to be going great, until Slade decided to crack a joke on Lydia's behalf about her weight to his woman Gretchen. Unfortunately for the two, Lydia overheard Slade’s crass comment about how thin she was. She decided to pull a Phaedra Parks from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and come for him, even though he didn't send her.
If that wasn’t bad enough for Gretchen, Tamra Barney decided to have Alexis Bellino come along as she and the other ladies went on the hunt for her wedding dress. Are Gretchen’s chickens coming home to roost?
OMG!: Vicki Gunvalson calling Gretchen the equivalent of toe jam. Ouch.
Thank you, TV gods.: Heather Dubrow and Alexis finally working out their issues. It was old and childish.
Awk-ward: Tamra dancing with Brooks Ayers. She looked like she'd rather set her hair on fire than do the tango with him.
Hotness: The OC chickas in their salsa night dresses. Muy caliente (that's very hot in Spanish kids)!
Fab-u-lous: Tamra's man Eddie Judge tearing up the dance floor. You are one luck lady T..
Can. Not. Wait.: To see what Vicki's reaction is to Lauri Warning Peterson's allegations Brooks is cheating on her with a porn star. This is going to be fireworks!
