On part two of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 reunion, embattled star Tamra Barney once again found herself under fire from multiple fronts.

First, checking off some other boxes, Shannon Beador and her green lifestyle are profiled. She defends her doctor and choices for her home and life.

Heather is grilled about making fun of Shannon’s hair color and says she was joking. Which we doubt, as she doesn't seem to have a sense of humor.

She is, however, pretty catty beneath that friendly facade. Speaking of appearances that don't hold up under scrutiny, we have Mrs. Lizzie Rovsek.

After complaining about her non-sex life all season, now she insists things are all good - amazing - on that front. One gets the feeling she is only fronting.

Lizzie is still rambling on about her birthday party, too, of course, which if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online comes as no surprise.

Tamra tries to apologize and say she gave Lizzie a year membership to her gym as a gift, but that excuse doesn't CUT it ... see what we did there?!

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 19, or part one of the reunion special, Tamra Barney was in the crosshairs once again.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know how the back half of this season has gone on Bravo, and this was hardly a surprise.

She wasn't the only RHOC cast member under fire Monday, however.

From the moment the fab five took the reunion stage to rehash the Season 9 drama, it looked as if Tamra Barney was ready to straight up murder someone.

If she had to pick one person, Lizzie Rovsek would probably get the nod.

Heather Dubrow's shorter hair and bangs? Not getting it done. Other than that, they all look the same. And probably will for the next 20 seasons.

Let's hear it for botox, surgery and anti-aging hyperbaric chambers.

There was a time when these wild sexual freaks discussed what a Dirty Sanchez is (ask Dustin Diamond) before moving onto (somewhat) more serious topics.

Was Monday's The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 18, the Bravo flagship show's season finale, the most explosive of all time?

Probably not quite, but the embattled Tamra Barney simply couldn’t let bygones be bygones, and an unexpected cast member really raised the stakes.

Bringing up their infamous "game" - which you're well familiar with if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online - Tamra stirred the pot again.

Barney implored Lizzie Rovsek to change her story and admit she wanted to screw Eddie, who may or may not have said he wanted to f--k her.

Or marry her. It's unclear. But whether or not Eddie Judge wants to f--k Lizzie Rovsek, Tamra was not about to give in and neither was her adversary.

Eventually, Tamra realized the argument with Lizzie was fruitless as her husband was there and nothing was going to be talked out, but it took a twist.

The focus shifted to Shannon and Heather, a feud that ended up being much uglier as Terry Dubrow brought up David Beador's infamous comment.

"SPREAD THOSE LEGS!"

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 17, the ladies' trip to Bali took more dramatic turns, and Tamra dug herself even more of a hole.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online or on TV, or even just read about it afterward, you know it's all about Tamra Barney lately.

Not in a good way, either. She's put everyone through the wringer and last night, Vicki Gunvalson - her best friend through it all - was no exception.

There was definitely a divide among the women, as evident from the start of this trip: Two blondes and a brunette and two brunettes and a blonde.

This was obvious from their attire and right on down to how they behaved about every little thing, until finally the tensions boiled over and WATCH OUT.

Vicki, for all her annoying characteristics, has been balancing cast members and friends like it's her job. Which we suppose it is. But wow, she's good.

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 16, Bali was beautiful but the atmosphere was anything but tranquil for Tamra and Lizzie.

"I'm hoping Bali is the peaceful, spiritual, cleansing moment we all need for our relationships," said Heather Dubrow, as if that were even remotely possible.

The ladies did enjoy kayaking, cocktails and riding elephants, on which Tamra remarked, "That's the biggest wiener I've ever seen! Look how it swings!"

Classic Tamra Barney quotes aside, the fun pretty much stopped there as the latest Season 9 installment turned catty and testy in an awfully big hurry.

The incident at Lizzie Rovsek's birthday and who blew it off and who said what or didn't say this or that or the other thing made it hard for her to relax.

"You didn't come, you didn't call, it was totally rude," said Rovsek.

The target of that comment was, of course, Tamra Barney, who protested, reading texts the two had shared to prove her point. Rovsek said, "I'm over it."

As. If.

This, of course, is the episode that prompted Tamra to slam Bravo on Facebook, accusing the network of editing her poorly to start up fake drama.

Monday night on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 15, Shannon Beador was once again the cast member on everybody's mind.

Is she just trying to fit in but being ostracized by women trying to take the Beadors down? Or is she quietly meddling and then playing the victim?

As you'll see if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, Heather threw a Valentine’s Day party in this episode, while it's Lizzie's birthday.

Vicki and Brooks couldn't make it to Heather's, while Vicki was the only cast member to show for Lizzie's party after both Shannon and Tamra flaked.

Lizzie says she has a lot of fun with Tamra but Vicki warns her as Lizzie, Christian, Vicki and Brooks actually seem to bond well during their night out.

At least there's one drama-free pair on the show!

Tamra and Heather talk about how the former is hating her own business since she never had a honeymoon and all Eddie does is stress over money.

Heather, meanwhile, laments that she can’t get Terry to take time out for an anniversary trip. The ladies debate taking a trip together, sans guys.

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 Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Cast

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.

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 14 Monday evening, someone surprisingly announced they're getting married. Who was it?

We'll get to that shortly. We pick up after Shannon Beador's meltdown. If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know it was epic.

The blood pressure of the other wives and even viewers was heightened after that display, which saw her storm out of Lizzie Rovsek's beach party.

After taking a walk, she returned and apologized, saying, "I feel as though I got ambushed ... I'm human, but I'm not proud of my display of humanness."

Monda night's The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 13 featured a dinner party at Lizzie Rovsek's, and all was going smoothly.

The fire dancers were doing their thing and everyone was having a blast at the beach house ... until Shannon Beador and Heather Dubrow crossed paths.

To, quote Ron Burgundy, that escalated quickly.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know that Shannon has been headed for a major meltdown for weeks. Here it comes.

"[My family beach house] holds so many family memories for me," said beauty queen Lizzie Rovsek, adding of the party, "I want it to be very elegant."

Things are far from elegant when Tamra Barney is involved, as she ended up throwing gasoline on the flames in this case, intentionally or not.

It started to go downhill fast when Beador asked Barney if Heather Dubrow's husband, Terry, had told her he "wanted to take the Beadors down."

"I don't recall that," said Barney.

Really, though?

This week on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 12, there were fake babies, there were real babies (adult ones), and real drama.

And puppies. Puppies!!

As always, you can watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online to experience it for yourself, in full. But here's a recap of what you missed ...

Vicki Gunvalson, the Mayor of Puerto Vallarta, jumps on the bar to dance in vintage Vicki fashion. She certainly is who she is and does not hold back.

That also means being a great friend (to Shannon), being a terrible friend (to several other people), and being totally delusional about Brooks Ayers.

Tamra Barney is still carrying around a fake baby in a totally non-scripted storyline that would absolutely take place in real life with people you know.

Eddie Judge, who doesn't want a baby, is fighting with Tamra, as his her grown son Ryan, and not simply because of any roid rage. It's getting awkward.
