They're no strangers to drama, but the war of words that erupted between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney on The Real Housewives of Orange County season finale this week was extreme even by their standards.

What's more, it apparently continues on the upcoming reunion show.

"Vicki insinuated that I cheated on my ex-husband, Simon, with [my current fiancé Eddie Judge]," Tamra revealed after Tuesday's fireworks. "That was just way out of line. Out of anybody in the world, for her to say that, was just totally below the belt."

Tamra and Vicki's feuding began on the June 26 finale, and when the pair reunited six months later to film the reunion show, things only got worse.

What's changed? "It all comes down to Brooks [Ayers]," Tamra says, blaming Vicki's new man for brainwashing her former BFF. "

"He's changed her so much, I just don't know if she's the same Vicki."

All season long, Tamra questioned Brooks' motives. The reason?

"He's obsessed with the show; I think he's obsessed with being famous," says Tamra, who says Vicki is in denial. "I don't want to see her getting taken advantage of, but she doesn't want to hear anything anybody says, so my hands are tied."

"Right now I am extremely angry with her. I'm broken up with her."

The fight breaks out during part one of the reunion, which airs July 10 at 9 p.m. Tell us: Whose side are you on in the RHOC feud?

Friendship bracelets, Pussycat dolls, Costa Rica, engagement rings, and cake-eating party crashers. This season of The Real Housewives of Orange County has had it all.

Tonight, on the season finale, notes are compared and confrontations are had.

Find out how it all goes down with THG's official +/- recap!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Cast

Sarah's still being a ball of drunken crazy about being picked on for breaking the cake. Over her. Minus 3.

In two signs of the Apocalypse, Terry calls Brooks "a really nice guy" (Minus 4) and Tamra decides to eat carbs (Plus 4).

To commemorate their five months of being friends, and as a tit-for-tat from the first episode, Gretchen gives Tamra a friendship bracelet. Each charm represents something special, but one heart represents how Tamra's unbreakable. Tamra tells Gretchen she loves her and thanks her for being such a good friend.

And then she cries again. While Tamra needs to lay off the booze tonight, it's a nice moment for these ladies. Plus 10.

Sarah's still whining about the cake and has the audacity to call Heather the rude one. Heather calls for the "heavy artillery" - a bunch of ladies in cocktail dresses and Terry and says it's time for Sarah to go. Plus 3.

Alexis tries to get louder than everyone else to bring about a resolution and Slade speaks up as the voice of reason. There's no need for a resolution. There's a need for Sarah to leave because that's what's been asked of her.

As they get Sarah to the door, the greatest line in all of reality television ever, or maybe just this season, falls out of Sarah's mouth: "Is this the world we live in? Over a bleeping piece of tiny cake?"

Yes, Sarah. Yes it is. Buh-bye. Plus 10.

Tonight on The Real Housewives of Orange County Heather and Terry throw a party and one of the housewives brings a party-crasher as her date.

How did that turn out in part one of the two-part finale?

Find out right here in THG's official +/- recap!

Heather Dubrow, Cake

Tamra meets Heather and Gretchen for dinner to show off her new bling and tell the story. She called Heather from Bora Bora. She didn't call Gretchen. Minus 12.

And minus 3 for those giant blue feather earrings Gretchen's wearing.

Tamra thought Gretchen would be upset, but Gretchen's happy for her. Plus 10. Mostly happy at least. There's that whole "Tamra just signed her divorce papers" thing.

Tamra hasn't been able to get in touch with Vicki because Vicki's spending all her time with Brooks. Ew.

Alexis meets up with Sarah and tells her about Phony-gate. Apparently, Alexis is just nice. And nice means phony now in Alexis Land. And in the real world "nice" means "nice" and "phony" means Alexis. Minus 8.

Sarah says the other women are just jealous. And then she says Heather's had too much Botox. And then Alexis invites Sarah to be her wingwoman at Heather's party and all I see is Sarah starting drama. Minus 5.

This week on The Real Housewives of Orange County, one aspiring housewife was hoping - practically begging - for a ring, while another potential candidate was less than enthused by the idea of her man proposing.

How did it shake out? Find out in THG's +/- recap!

It seems Vicki's found something about Brooks that's a little less than perfect. His teeth. Specifically, the fact that some of them are missing.

She's treating him to a set of new chompers. Minus 10 because I can't ever unsee the pictures of his missing teeth. And also because Vicki won't let the doctor talk.

Tamra Barney, Eddie Judge

At dinner, Tamra tells Eddie about her trip. She says she and Alexis "got into it a little bit." A little bit. Gee, Tamra, I think you're leaving out a thing or two.

Eddie's taking her to Bora Bora. Next week. After she just got back from Costa Rica. I hate her. (Not really.) Minus 25.

Alexis has an on-air reporting gig. Plus 10 for keeping her cleavage under wraps this time!

It's a fashion segment, and given that she's a fashion maven, this should be a slam dunk, right? It actually seems to go well! Good job, Alexis! Plus 10.

Tamra and Eddie are headed to Bora Bora. She wonders if he's going to propose and doesn't want to tell the other women she's going in case he doesn't.

Previously on the Real Housewives of Orange County, the ladies headed to Costa Rica to call Alexis out on her phoniness and materialism. And Vicki took some whacky pills.

This week the adventure continues and involves... paddling.

Down a river, of course. Read on for THG's +/- review!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Cast

We're still at dinner and Alexis is in tears because Tamra can't keep her voice down. Tamra's pretty much being a bitch right now. Minus 25.

Vicki says that at times they're all materialistic. Plus 10 for that tidbit of truth.

Gretchen tries to speak up for Alexis but ends up twisting the knife a little bit more. Alexis gets up to leave the table and Heather wants to hug it out first. Alexis says no hugs. She wants to be alone.

Gretchen gives her a head start and then goes after Alexis, but Alexis won't let her in the hotel room.

Here's the kicker - this intervention all happened before dinner was even served. Way to go, ladies. Now Alexis is crying herself to sleep on an empty stomach. Minus 10.

Back at the table, Gretchen bursts into tears because she hurt her friend by trying to both be honest and defend Alexis. Vicki decides to take Alexis her lobster dinner and after barging into the room, Vicki promptly begins to talk about herself. Minus 10.

Gretchen's gone from crying to cranky because Vicki was let inside Alexis' room and she wasn't. She's defended Alexis so many times and this is the thanks she gets?

This week, the Real Housewives of Orange County are headed to Costa Rica. Alexis thinks they're going to Mexico, but that's okay as she also doesn't realize how fake she can be.

Good thing the ladies are here to call her out on her phoniness this week. That guarantees to bring the drama. How much drama, exactly?

Let's find out with our THG +/- review!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 7 Cast

Heather and Terry and Tamra and Eddie meet up for dinner. Talk immediately turns to Tamra and Alexis' lunch date. Terry almost chokes on his champagne when Tamra spits out that she told Alexis he thinks

Alexis is a phony. I knew that one would come back to bite her. Minus 5.

Heather says in a one-on-one that Tamra's got to learn to keep her secrets...uh...secret. Then the ladies plot to confront Alexis on their trip to Costa Rica.

Alexis's friend Shannon comes over while Alexis is packing. Since Alexis doesn't have a full-time nanny, she's only going on the trip for two days while the rest of the ladies will be there for five days. She's packing like she'll be there for way more than two days, which isn't shocking at all, really. She's nervous about being on a trip with Tamra. And since Tamra and Heather have plans to stage an intervention, she should be.

Heather's packing too. She tells her assistant/friend that they'll be ziplining and going on a safari. But she's packing Jimmy Choo wedges. Minus 5. She's also confident that Terry can keep the good ship Dubrow running smoothly in her absence.

Last week on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Alexis threw the most obnoxious birthday party in history, Slade looked at rings, Tamra told Eddie to put his money where Simon's tattoo was, and Briana called Vicki out on Brooks' shadiness and her emotional affair on Donn.

This week, Slade and Gretchen go to couple's counseling and Brooks supports Vicki. Let's break it all down in THG's official +/- recap!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 7 Cast

Vicki says Briana was disrespectful during their fight. Brooks shows up to her office to bring her coffee and says that she knows she's not a perfect person but she thinks she's a perfect mom. Um, I'm thinking you can't be an imperfect person and a perfect mom since moms are people too, Vicki. Minus 10.

Vicki's crying into her coffeecake over the fight with Briana and how disrespectful and rude Briana was. Brooks says Briana was honest as she sees things and what parent wouldn't want a child who can be honest? Then Vicki says Briana called him an opportunist. He ends up saying he doesn't take any of this personally.

Heather meets her friend Dina for lunch to talk about acting and Harrison Ford and life choices and Heather's name. She's thinking of changing from her professional name, Heather Paige Kent, to her personal name, Heather Dubrow, permanently. She says one of the reasons she didn't take Terry's name is because no one knows how to pronounce it. But, she's moving forward with the change. After something like 10 years of marriage. Plus 10.

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 Smily and Gretchen Rossi Photo

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.

Vicki Gunvalson… to be a grandmother!

Sources tell Us Weekly the daughter of this Real Housewives of Orange County star is pregnant with her first child.

Last week the RHOC left off with Vicki speechless after learning that Briana eloped. This week, Vicki has Briana in tears, and they don’t appear to be tears of joy.

Find out what happened in THG's +/- review!

Vicki and Tamra meet up at a lingerie store for bra fittings. Vicki’s bra fitter thinks she’s a FF. Tamra’s a 32D, which she feels is impossible given recent surgical de-enhancements. Tamra suggests that Vicki get Briana some bridal lingerie for her honeymoon.

Minus 30 for the gross factor of your mother buying you lingerie. Ew. EW EW EW.

Tamra Barney, Breasts

Vicki thinks Briana’s eloping is disrespectful and wrong and is upset that it robbed her of all of the wedding planning “fun.” Minus 10 for being selfish, Vicki. This isn’t about you.

I’ll give you a Plus 5 for realizing this isn’t about you and knowing you have to suck it up. But ONLY 5 because I don’t trust you to follow through with this.

Slade’s getting ready to go for a ride on his bicycle and Gretchen’s getting ready for lunch with Tamra. Gretchen just wants everyone to get along.

Slade just wants to get married to Gretchen.

He meets up with Gretchen’s dad on his ride and asks for her hand in marriage. Plus 10 for being the gentleman Ryan wasn’t when he eloped with Briana.
