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.

Lydia hosts a Salsa party tonight on The Real Housewives of Orange County! And Lauri stirs up trouble. 

Will Heather and Alexis be able to reach a truce? And what will be the fallout from Brooks' surprise appearance?

Let's pick up the pace and get this THG recap started!

The Ladies Get Ready To Dance

Lydia calls Heather to kvetch about motherhood and then asks Heather to talk to Alexis to make the peace before Lydia's Salsa party. Ugh. Always with the peacemaking, Lydia. Minus 5

Heather agrees to call Alexis one more time and hopes they can have an "intelligent, reasonable" conversation. 

This is Alexis we're talking about. What are the chances? Slim to none is my bet.

When the women of The Real Housewives of Orange County party, they party. Or at least Vicki does. And she drags Tamra and Lydia along on her whoop-it-up spree.

Gretchen doesn't like it.

Things are heating up with the women south of the border! Let's recap it now with our THG +/- review!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 Cast

Vicki, Tamra, and Lydia finally arrive at Andale's. Now maybe Vicki will shut up about whooping it up at Andale's. Maybe. (Probably not.)

Gretchen and Heather are in the back of the limo waiting for the end of the bathroom trip of eternity. Gretchen starts telling Heather the tales Laurie told her about Vicki and Heather doesn't want to hear it. Plus 2.

They get out of the limo and into a cab to go back to the resort. Tamra hails her own cab by dancing on top of one and declaring that there's no better woman to party with than Vicki Gunvalson.

This week on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Gretchen plans a bachelorette party for Tamra. Even though Tamra and Eddie haven't set a date and have no plans to get married other than a ring?

Whatever. It's a vacation and there's booze. That means there's bound to be some fun.

We're recapping it all with our THG +/- review!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 Cast

After Tamra's tearful conversation with her mom last week, she's ready to turn over a new, less-angry leaf. Lydia comes over for lemonade and a snack. She also hopes to broker peace between Tamra and Alexis. 

Lydia calls herself the "friendship whisperer" and says that this is all part of her master plan. Master plan for what, Lydia?? Maybe you should hit up your mom's house and bring along a bit of her stash for this. Minus 8.
