On Monday's The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 5, Lizzie Rovsek took over and gave Vicki Gunvalson a run for her show-running money.

You can watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online to see it for yourself, but when Vicki came face to face with the new girl, it did not go smoothly.

One got the impression knowing Vicki that she would not like Lizzie Rovsek from the start, but this was tense and awkward even by RHOC standards.

With the ladies getting together for what was supposed to be a fun holiday dinner, Vicki and Lizzie went at it in the limo for reasons more or less unknown.

It was as if Vicki saw Lizzie and her giant boobs and hair and decided this was an enemy she had to take down on the spot, and by any means necessary.

Seriously, we've seen police suspects treated more respectfully.

Looks like former Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi hit a nerve by commenting on Tamra Barney's high-profile custody war with ex-husband Simon.

After Rossi told celebrity gossip magazine Life & Style she thinks Barney “cares more about ‘RHOC’ than taking care of her kids,” Barney shot back at her.

“This nasty b!tch will do anything to stay relevant," she said.

“GO AWAY! You know nothing about my life or my kids."

"I pray that one day you have the happiness and beautiful children I have. I pray that your children are not hurt by divorce and their names are not [dragged] through the mud by people like you.”

Yikes.

Rossi was quick to respond on Twitter, calling Barney a “hypocrite,” and reminding her how quick she was to “trash talk” her beau Slade Smiley and his dirty laundry.

Tamra Barney Judge isn't giving up hope when it comes to becoming a mom again with new husband Eddie Judge ... even if he's sort of lukewarm to the idea.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star, whose ex-husband Simon Barney says she's an unfit mother, is basically begging for another baby with Judge.

Last night on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 4, the topic came up and Tamra was adamant about where things stand.

“I was thinking about our talk we had the other day about the baby,” she said. “You don’t have any children of your own and you’re okay with that?”

Judge replied, “I think I will be.”

When Barney pressed the issue and asked him, “What if I wanted to have one? Would you be okay with that?” Eddie hesitatingly replied, “Probably.”

This is where it got awkward.

So far, The Real Housewives of Orange County season 9 has been kind of a snooze, but that's sure to change with new housewife Lizzie Rovsek on the block.

Last night, Tamra and Heather met Lizzie for the first time at an ugly sweater party...and Heather couldn't stop staring at Lizzie's sweater puppies.

"Girls with big boobs know they have big boobs," Lizzie says in an interview, and suddenly we all like her a lot.

As previously mentioned, the night began with Tamra and Eddie joining Heather and Terry at an Ugly Sweater party held by new friend of the housewives Danielle Gregorio.

Tamra lamented the fact that the sweaters had to be ugly despite her own penchant for throwing themed parties that don't always result in the most fashionable costuming choices. (The 80s called, Tamra. They want their crimper back.)

It's always sort of odd when reality TV show seasons are out of sync with real life, but that's what's happening on The Real Housewives of Orange County!

It's Thanksgiving, Vicki Gunvalson!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 3 picked up right where the previous week left off: that really, really awkward dinner party at Shannon and David's that got even more awkward as the meal courses progressed.

Somewhere between the courses, Shannon got a wee bit intoxicated, which seems to be her thing. David, who has a "dry sense of humor," cracked very unfunny to Shannon jokes and Shannon decided to snap at her husband in front of their guests in the middle of dinner.

And then there was that whole thing with Heather and Vicki and Tamra and the blonde BFFs ganging up on the brunette in the room to prevent her from talking. Heather wasn't pleased. Her poker face is that bad.

Oh yes, 'twas an awkward dinner indeed.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has reportedly split from Brooks Ayers and has taken up with a new man in John Pankauski.

Gunvalson and Ayers went through a bitter split, only to get back together despite warnings from her friends and family. Now it looks like it's over for real.

Vicki Doesn't Believe The News

Vicki met John Pankauski, an attorney, in New York City recently and apparently hit it off immediately. Says a source close to the reality star:

“Vicki met John when he was meeting with her production company Woo Hoo and she had dinner with him and brought him to a Watch What Happens Live taping."

“They are working together on a few projects, but there are sparks flying.”

Unlike Brooks Ayers, who's entangled in multiple lawsuits over child support and other issues, Pankauski seems a much better match for Gunvalson.

Monday night's The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 2 saw the continuation of the ladies' latest season and all the drama therein.

In “Meet and Potatoes,” the relationship of Vicki and Brooks is questioned (yet again), and Heather “Fancy Pants” Dubrow is urged to let loose and party.

Meanwhile, Heather introduces her plastic friends to her new neighbor and a spooky themed dinner. Even spookier than their normal dinners, even.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know there are casting changes afoot in Season 9, namely the arrival of we Shannon Beador.

One of the more interesting dynamics of the Bravo show so far this spring is how the new cast member and Vicki Gunvalson seem to be hitting it off.

Is it 'cause she knows she's on the verge of kissing her friendships with Tamra Barney (sorry, Tamra Judge) and Heather Dubrow goodbye for good?

That would be pretty self-aware for Vicki, but given her co-stars' take on Brooks Ayers, even she has to see the writing on the wall here, we'd imagine.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is firing back at ex-husband Simon Barney's allegations that she is neglectful of their three children.

"I am saddened by the false stories my ex-husband has released," Tamra tells People of claims her former spouse recently made in court documents.

"He has no foundation to his allegations and in my opinion will do anything to destroy me. Unfortunately, he is hurting our children and my family in the process."

The couple (right) is divorced, and Tamra is now married to Eddie Judge (left), which you know if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Simon has been adamant that the couple's children not appear on the series, and he's gotten his way - but it appears his issues run deeper than that.

He alleges that "especially in recent times," Tamra Barney "has been very neglectful in her care for the children." Meaning what exactly? He says:

"This has resulted in the children not getting prompt medical care, nutritional meals, hygienic care, and deterioration in their school work and attendance."

Tamra is livid and denies every word of that statement.

Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino will be noticeably absent if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online and catch up on last night's premiere.

Suffice it to say, returning cast members Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson aren't exactly what you'd call broken up over the exile of their former co-stars.

Vicki, Tamra, and Heather Hit Hawaii
Vicki and Tamra tag along with Heather for a girls' weekend when Heather goes to Hawaii to film a role on Hawaii Five-0.

The Season 9 opener saw Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek taking over for the departed twosome, and for Tamra and Vicki, there is no love lost.

In fact, the ladies threw major shade at their former co-stars in a live television interview Monday on NBC's TODAY, admitting they don’t miss them.

At all.

“We ran them out of the O.C.,” Tamra said, to which Kathie Lee Gifford asked if they missed them and Vicki said, “I miss Alexis. Her and I are good friends.”

The ladies of the OC are back on our televisions as The Real Housewives of Orange County season 9 kicked off last night. Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney-Judge, and Heather Dubrow are joined this season by new housewives Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek.

Shannon is obsessed with all things "green" to the point that I propose a new drinking game for future episodes: take a shot every time Shannon says the word "organic."

As for Heather and the other ladies? It's been quite the off-season. Take a look at these photos from the premiere and keep reading for the recap.

Heather and Terry are building a new house after selling their previous, "too small" house for $16.4 million dollars. They're all currently living in a rental which is smaller than their old garage and the close family time is making Terry a little nutty.

The matriarch of the Dubrow clan keeps booking jobs and flew to Hawaii during the premiere to film a guest role on Hawaii Five-0. Tamra and newly divorced Vicki tagged along for a girl's trip.
