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?

Will longtime Bravo mainstay Tamra Barney be fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County after the current ninth season comes to a close?

Three month ago, it would have seemed like a crazy possibility to even throw out (maybe it still is), but she keeps falling out of favor with each passing week.

Tamra

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County regularly, you know that Barney - or Tamra Judge, as she goes by now - may be skating on thin ice.

Not because she's boring and doesn't bring storylines, a la Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She brings plenty.

According to insiders, Tamra should be worried because she's reaching the point where no one else wants to open up to her or involve her in their lives.

That, more than anything, is the kiss of death on Bravo.

While Heather and Terry Dubrow are likely losing their minds at this point in the filming process, she's become a lightning rod and polarizing figure.

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.

This week on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon and David Beador took relationship advice from...Brooks and Vicki

Yes, oh yes. The woman who had to "make her life private" to keep her friends out of her relationship with Brooks the Leech is dishing out advice. It's actually pretty good advice, too.

Shannon needs to stop needling David. Can she do it? Will Mexico be the place where the Beador marriage takes a turn for the better?

Chances are...not high. After all, tequila is involved. 

Shannon and David are packing for their trip to Mexico. At home they seem to be in a better place, or at least that they're trying to be in a better place. 

They actually touch each other and talk about how excited they are to be going away together. It's a nice change from their constant bickering and frequent barbs tossed in each other's general direction. 

Too bad it doesn't last.

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 10, the feud between Shannon Beador and Heather Dubrow got more feud-y and Tamra and Eddie Judge had a robot baby!

Con...grats? Then there was that whole being flashed by Brooks Ayers thing that's burned into our brains forever and ever. And likely yours too if you saw it.

You really should watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online at TV Fanatic to see it all for yourself. In the meantime, read on for THG's recap!

The rift between Heather and Shannon turned into a canyon when Shannon received a text from David that said Heather had been talking about the Beador marriage at lunch with girlfriends.

Shannon knows she only told Tamra about the email. Tamra says "I didn't tell anybody!" Liar liar, skin tight pants on fire!

Last night on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 9, Heather and Tamra tried to bring an end to their fight that lasted over the holidays.

Shannon Beador got some shocking news that has her a little rattled, while Vicki, Briana, and Ryan have cause to celebrate. Why?

You can watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online at TV Fanatic to see it all for yourself, or keep reading for a THG recap.

The hour started with Vicki and Heather sitting down for tea and a chat about Tamra.

After reminding Heather that she said Tamra would try to sabotage their friendship because that's what Tamra does, Vicki apologized for talking about Heather behind her back.

She feels guilty that she might have contributed to the fight at Shannon's even though she said nothing during the actual fight.

It was a good night for Vicki as she also learned that Briana is having another boy! Briana said she was excited to have another boy, but her body language said something different. We'll probably see Baby #3 in a future season because Briana and Vicki both want a girl.

It was Christmas come early, or late, last night on The Real Housewives of Orange County. The gift under Heather Dubrow's holiday tree? An ambush at Shannon Beador's Christmas party. 

She probably didn't have that on her Hanukkah list at all, but that's certainly what she got, and right on the heels of some good news, too. 

Just what went down at the Beador Bash? Keep reading for a full The Real Housewives of Orange County recap.

Once again, Bravo begins this episode splitting time between Heather Dubrow and Shannon Beador and the goings-on in their lives.

While Shannon preps her home for their annual Christmas party, the time for Heather Dubrow's Hawaii Five-0 guest appearance episode to air has finally arrived.

She's busy doing a "publicity tour" for her appearance while Shannon's busy bossing around a team of florists and her husband.

Monday, on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 7, the holiday season did little to thaw the icy relations between the women.

As the Dubrows and the Beadors prepare for their holiday photo shoots, it was clear that they are more about the drama than spreading good cheer.

Meanwhile, Tamra Barney talks about waiting for her kids to get home while seeming to go out of her way to look like she's not a great mother.

She may well be one, but when we see Tamra consulting an anti-age specialist so husband Eddie Judge won’t want to put it to other girls at the gym?

Doesn't exactly scream self-confidence. As for the fact that her grown son Ryan is still taking HGH despite having a steroid problem, we got nothing.

At the doctor, she is told to start taking testosterone, and also rats out her son about HGH, which just makes us feel sorry for her whole family situation.

Heather Dubrow had better watch her back now that Tamra Barney has watched The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 6.

On Monday's episode, Dubrow threw a hoedown to celebrate breaking ground on her new dream home (not to be confused with her previous palace).

There was a mechanical bull on site, and Barney was riding that thing like a cowgirl pro when Heather told the bull operator to “Turn that up.”

He obliged. Tamra went flying off the beast, just as Heather intended.

“I had no idea that Heather told the bull operator to ‘turn it up’ until I saw the footage,” Barney said in the episode's - and her epic fall's - wake.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you'll see Dubrow acting totally concerned by the fall, asking Barney if she was “okay."

Barney, meanwhile, was clearly oblivious to the intentional move.

Monday night, on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 6, the tension and drama continued between ... pretty much all five of the ladies of Orange County.

But who was the focal point of the conflict this time around? 

Well, that'd be Heather Dubrow and Shannon Beador's continuing feud following "Chairgate." The chances these ladies are ever going to get along is looking pretty slim.

The episode opened with Heather relaying her version of Chairgate to Terry while Vicki and Shannon did the same. All parties were busy prepping for the ground breaking ceremony at the new Chateau Dubrow. 

Adding to the list of things we know about Vicki that we never needed to know? She has high arches.

Oh, and she wants Briana to buy a house in Orange County and rent one in Oklahoma since she, Troy, Ryan, and their baby on the way are moving to the flatlands for Ryan's job. 

Sure, Vicki. Two homes makes sense.
