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 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.

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

Andy's first question for Heather is about her house and the offer they couldn't refuse. The model of their new house is built and they hope to break ground by December. Plus 8?

Next he brings up Heather's return to acting and Terry's many attempts at joking his way through the stress of flying solo. Heather defends their on-camera fighting as part of real life after being together for 16 years. Plus 15.

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.

We might be finished with The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, but that doesn't mean Bravo's Andy Cohen is!

He'll sit down with the domestic divas and rehash the highs and lows of the OG Housewives' franchise. He's got Lauri Peterson in the house so we know this is going to be good.

We'll sit here with a glass of pinot to recap it all in true THG +/- fashion.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion

First question to Vicki. Her divorce from Donn isn't final. Still. Two seasons later. Minus 3.

There's "no sense of urgency" because once she signs the papers she'll have to pay spousal support. Makes sense to me. Plus 8.

After Vicki peed Tamra's bed in Mexico, Tamra slept in it. Minus 25.

Tamra's planning to throw Gretchen a bachelorette party, so maybe those two made up in the off-season?

There's drama afoot at Vicki's end-of-season party on The Real Housewives of Orange County

But then it wouldn't really be an OC party without drama, now would it? No, it wouldn't.

Let's dissect the drama one more time with our THG +/- recap.

Gossip Girls

Slade and Gretchen arrive at Vicki's party and can't find anyone. Because they're all sitting around talking about Gretchen and Slade. Minus 12.

Slade pays Lydia an actual compliment and she calls him a douche anyway. Two wrongs and a right, or something, I guess. Minus 4.

Ryan tells Slade and Gretchen that Brooks isn't allowed on the property because he's not a great man and he's a liar and Brooks is bad. Vicki's on the phone with Brooks while that's all going down.

Another week, another episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County! Just what Monday night needs, right?

"The Time Is Now" for Gretchen and Slade as the buxom blonde will propose to her beau (finally)! And Vicki will make a surprising announcement about Brooks. But not before she can receive a new nickname, of course.

Let's get rolling with our THG +/- recap!

Winter Wonderland

Vicki's having Lydia and Alexis over to show them the new un-Donn'ed house. Vicki's thinking of having a party to show everyone the new house. But she's going to have a Winter Wonderland party outside. To show off the inside of the house. Okay.

Lydia says she feels like she likes Slade and then he talks and she doesn't like him anymore. Plus 3.

Vicki's looking for answers on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Gretchen, on the other hand, is looking to pop the question!

Oh, and Terry sold their house for $16.4 million dollars. No big deal. (Hey, remember when Tamra pretended to be Heather's realtor??)

Let's catch up with these OC Housewives with our THG +/- recap!

Heather Dubrow Is Happy

Gretchen's at home with her puppies, finally back in town from Canada and filling Slade in on the drama with Tamra. And apparently Heather sent her some pretty condescending text messages that make Heather seem like a Jealous Julie. 

Green's not a great color for you, Heather. Minus 12.

Terry takes Heather to a beautiful lot with a view of the harbor. $16,450,000 for their custom home. All because they need a 4th bedroom upstairs.

The ladies hit the slopes tonight on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Things heat up between Gretchen and Heather as more than just snowballs are thrown between them. 

Was this all part of Vicki's evil plan?

We'll find out now in our THG +/- recap!

Snow Angels Hit The Slopes

Lydia has a makeup artist come over to help her, uh, get dressed for the day. Minus 12.

She's taking all the girls to Canada to celebrate her Canadian-ness. Alexis brings her a Swarovski-covered Bible to take to Canada to protect her against the drama from the other ladies. 

Oh--charity event. That's why the makeup artist is there.

The third time's the charm for Tamra Barney! She has the groom. She has the bling. And if the ladies have anything to do with it, she'll have the dress, too.

And Vicki will get some shocking news about Brooks thanks to Lauri, who went away to marry George but has come back again to start trouble because apparently her new life was boring.

Silly housewife.

Let's catch up with them now with our THG +/- recap!

The Ladies Go Dress Shopping

Tamra meets Eddie at what will eventually, hopefully, maybe be their fitness studio. He's set up a candlelight dinner on a card table. How romantic! Plus 8.

They were supposed to be open weeks ago and there's still no floor. 

Eddie's so not interested in hearing Tamra talk about her Spanx. So not. Fake it, Eddie. Fake it. He asks about the Alexis-Gretchen drama and about Gretchen backing out of dress shopping and says that Gretchen's being childish.

Really, Gretchen's just being a friend and knows that if she goes she might fight with Alexis and doesn't want that for Tamra. Plus 3.
