Unlike the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta reunion fight, no weaves were pulled and no arrests were made when The Real Housewives of Orange County reconvened.
Last week's reunion show taping wasn't drama-free by any means, though, as the women of SoCal brought with them insults, tears and apologies galore.
The one-woman epicenter of tension? Tamra Barney.
The reunion was “full of emotion, and it was all aimed at Tamra,” an insider revealed, noting, “Heather Dubrow actually apologized to Shannon Beador.
In return, both of those ladies "took their anger out on Tamra, accusing her of stirring up drama and being a disloyal friend who spreads gossip.”
The enemy of my enemy is my friend? Or something?
They weren't alone, either: “Vicki Gunvalson was also very mad at Tamra for betraying her trust, and continuing her vendetta against [Brooks Ayers]."
But it was Shannon Beador who really went off on Tamra, according to insiders, for essentially "trying to make her look like a bad wife and mom.”
That will typically not endear you to a person, it's true.
Tamra, who will be a grandmother this year as Ryan Vieth is expecting his first child, finally admitted to Beador that she leaked gossip about her.
Will all of this get Tamra Barney fired from the show? That's unclear, but despite the growing animosity, it's hard to imagine those ties being severed.
As for the husbands, the only ones who were invited to the taping to appear on camera were Terry Dubrow and David Beador, reports indicate.
Heather’s plastic surgeon hubby, Terry “didn’t want her to apologize to Shannon because he didn’t feel she had done anything wrong,” the insider said.
Meanwhile, “Shannon’s husband, David, also went OFF on Tamra for making his wife so upset. It was very sweet the way David defended Shannon."
Both believe Tamra is meddling and grasping at straws lately in large part because she personally is "very unhappy in her own marriage to Eddie [Judge].”
Could a third divorce be nigh instead of a baby?
It's unclear, but producers are “very happy with how the reunion taping went ... there was tons of fighting, and tears, which equates to excellent ratings.”
Yes. In that respect, everybody wins.
