Lydia McLaughlin is exiting The Real Housewives of Orange County after one season of the flagship Bravo franchise, the reality star herself confirms.

The axe has come down on a pair of Real Housewives of Orange County cast members.

A Bravo insider tells Star that Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino have both been fired from the franchise, the former for making up facts about her life in order to get more screen time and the latter because producers didn't think she brought much to the show.

Neither will appear at all on Season 9.

Tamra Barney, Vicki Gunvalson, Heather Dubrow and Lydia McLaughlin, however, have all been asked to return and will go into production on their new scripted controversies and fights later this month.

In related news, Taylor Armstrong is out of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Part three of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion special took a serious and nasty turn last night when Briana accused Brooks of abuse.

Early and often in the final installment of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, the conversation turned to Vicki Gunvalson's boyfriend.

That being Brooks Ayers, the man NO ONE seems to like.

For good reason, if what Vicki's daughter Briana said about him is true. Briana and husband Ryan, as fans know, refuse to even be around him.

This has often made Vicki edgy, and has resulted in lingering tension - which finally boiled over last night when Briana UNLOADED on Brooks:

While the world is still reeling from Miley Cyrus Twerking at the VMAs, the dramatic conclusion to The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 will hopefully take our minds off Hannah Montana's Humpty Dancing.

Did anyone else ever imagine Miley Cyrus and the OC housewives being mentioned in the same sentence? Yeah, me neither.

Anyway. Let's get to it with THG's +/- recap!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Say Cheers

Vicki Can't Believe It

“Guess what, Vicki’s done with the show!” Gunvalson proclaims as she walks off the set of Monday's climactic part three of the reunion special.

Next week, Vicki, Brooks Ayers, and her daughter Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson all let the vitriol fly, and it gets quite epic, even by RHOC standards.

Welcome back for Part Two of the The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion!

After the ladies grilled Gretchen on her maybe-more-than-friends relationship with a mystery dude during her late fiance' Jeff's illness - an event that happened SEASONS ago and was mentioned in passing during the 100th episode special - Andy Cohen will finally give the fashion maven a chance to turn the tables on the girls.

Will Gretchen get closure from her so-called "friends"? Ehhh, probably not. 

If there's one thing the previews tell us, it's that the ladies better be wearing waterproof mascara. Let's get started with our THG +/- recap, shall we?

Sitting Down With Andy Cohen

Minus 10 for hearing Vicki say "whoop it up" again. And Minus 15 for reliving Stripper-gate. 

Vomit. Minus 45 for hearing about Jim's Big Jim. OMG. Vomit and brain bleach and more vomit. And mouthwash.

Lydia says she'll be open with her kids about her mom's pot-smoking ways, thanks in part to the show. Vicki's never smoked pot and doesn't think her mom should smoke it either. Um. Okay then.
