Last week on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Slade asked Gretchen’s father for permission to propose, Alexis met with an acting coach and Vicki announced Briana’s marriage and then forced her daughter to have a sit-down with Brooks.
What could happen to these crazy housewives next?!? Read on for the exclusive THG +/- recap to find out!
First up, Alexis is planning a birthday party for her twins fourth birthday. A Puppy Princess party. Because she calls them princesses and they love puppies. PERF! And then she leaves the party stylist for 10 minutes so she can go get a spray tan instead of doing party prep. Minus 10. One point for every minute you got sprayed, Alexis.
This party will be proof that Alexis really can do it all. Apparently she’s trying to be “Mom Enough.”
Slade is visiting a jeweler. He wants to buy Gretchen a ring and has invited Heather to go ring shopping with him. Maybe because Tamra and Vicki hate him and Alexis and Gretchen are on the outs. Weird. But I like Heather, so Plus 5 for inviting her for feedback.
Slade says he likes to “reverse engineer” everything. Instead of looking at what he can afford, he wants to look at what Gretchen would like and then go backwards. Heather chatted Gretchen up for the information.
The first ring he looks at? $250,000. The second? $37,000. And then he asks about imitation stones because it’s obvious that these are out of his price range. The way I understand it, the ring from a Cracker Jack box might be out of his price range.
Heather’s solution? Buy her a band. Gretchen’s just looking for the words and the sentiment anyway. Plus 10 to Heather for not laughing in his face at that “imitation stone” line.
