On last week's episode, we watched Tamra and Eddie patch up their relationship after a wayward boob grab in Catalina. We also saw Vicki and Alexis awkwardly learn of the newfound friendship Gretchen and Tamra are rekindling at Heather’s painting party.

Tonight, we’ve got comedy, and, of course, drama. What else went down tonight? Find out with in THG's Real Housewives of Orange County +/- recap below!

Gretchen Rossi Stand-Up

We start off the night with Vicki and Tamra at Vicki’s house that she still shares with Don. Her not-yet-ex-husband. Tamra is upset that Vicki didn’t say goodbye to her after Heather’s party. And Vicki is being all kinds of passive-aggressive about Tamra’s newfound friendship with Gretchen.

Vicki is pretty butthurt over the whole thing, so she starts playing the one-up game and claims that she and Alexis are BFFs now. Tamra knows better. Tamra breaks out a book called 52 Weeks of Great Sex that she bought with Gretchen and Vicki is immediately turned off.

“It’s not Biblical,” says Vicki. Tamra fires back, “Oh God, you have been hanging out with Alexis!” Minus 10 to Vicki for acting like a scorned 14 year old girl. And a prude.

Plus 10 to Tamra for playing dirty with Vicki.

Alexis and Heather are getting together for sushi and sake. Alexis claims she’s doing news anchoring – and, of course, she’s just doing some booty-lifting guest spots on the local news channel.

Heather is in disbelief, asking if she’s more like Jillian Barberie or Katie Couric. “I would be more like Jillian Bar-beer-ee” says Alexis. Minus 5, you ditz.

Last week, Tamra, Vicki and their men traveled to Catalina for Tamra’s birthday. Eddie and Vicki held hands. So Tamra put Brooks’ hand on her own boob. Eddie got pissed.

And that’s where we’re picking up with the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Let's break it all down in THG's official +/- recap below!

Tamra realizes the error of her boob-grabbing ways.

She and Eddie go for a walk. Tamra breaks down and cries that she was jealous of all the attention Eddie was paying to Vicki and admits to the boob grab as an attention…uh…grabber because she LOVES.HIM.SO.MUCH.

Minus 5 to Tamra for being ridiculous.

Vicki and Brooks, meanwhile, think nothing of Tamra’s forced man-handling and go straight to dinner. Where the promptly order more booze.

Minus 5 to them because more booze is exactly what NONE OF THEM need right now.

Back on the mainland, Heather and Terry go to dinner and the waitress hands Heather the menu already opened. As soon as the waitress is out of earshot, Heather feels compelled to complain that the menu being already opened makes her feel rushed. Uh, Heather, I’m pretty sure that’s a courtesy so you won’t chip your manicure.

Terry says he’s so hungry he doesn’t even think he can talk to Heather. I think he can’t talk to her because she’s a picky, snotty bitch.

She calls him “part husband, part little brother she never wanted” in a one-on-one, so I’m calling the fact that she looks at him as a brother Problem the First with this couple.

And then, just in case she hasn’t been ridiculous enough, she equates ordering Chinese takeout or reheating leftover soup with cooking dinner for her family every night. I wish that would fly with my husband.

Minus 20, Heather, for being obnoxious.

It’s a new week on The Real Housewives of OC and we’re picking up right where we left off during last week's season premiere - the party at Vicki’s house.

Actually, we’re backtracking a wee bit and seeing the arrivals of all the women again. And the awkward. Alexis looks downright unhappy being in the same place as Peggy.

And Peggy looks like a man. So there’s that.

Awkwardness!

The two of them swap some war stories about broken bones and Alexis attempts to one-up Peggy’s three year old daughter. Minus 10, Alexis.

But Plus 5 to Peggy for walking away.

Vicki says she’s having seller’s remorse and will be sad to leave the house. Then she sort of dodges questions about Don’s current relationships. You know, since they’re still living in the same house and all. I mean, seeing your nearly-ex-husband’s hookups doing the walk-of-shame out of your own house can’t be awkward AT ALL, right??

Ahhh, finally. Time for the appetizer course. Oysters.

Minus 10 for gross.

Gretchen shows Tamra how to eat oysters and Tamra makes a face that says she does not enjoy swallowing. Oysters, I mean. (Sheesh, people!) Plus 15 for trying those slimy little bottom-feeders because that’s more than I would do.

After a long hiatus, The Real Housewives of Orange County are back for a seventh season. Let's catch up with them in THG's +/- review of the premiere!

When we first see Gretchen, she’s getting ready to go to lunch. With Tamra. Because they’re trying to “bury the hatchet.” And because Tamra’s negativity just brings Gretchen down.

Slade’s not happy about a potential Gretchen-Tamra truce.

Plus 10 for trying to be the bigger person. Minus 10 for the rose petals in the bathroom floor.

Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi

Vicki’s house is for sale and they have a showing, so she has to go make the bed for her adult son because people won’t want to buy the house if the line on the comforter isn’t straight. And then they have to fluff the pillows on the couch.

Plus 10 because they’re doing it themselves.

Vicki also reveals that she’s dating a guy named Brooks who lives in Mississippi. He hasn’t been to her house because - get this - Don’s still living there because she needs his paycheck to maintain the house. But it’s okay because she and Don haven’t seen each other in about two months (despite living in the same house).

Minus 10 for the weird factor.

We're less than two weeks away from the return of Bravo's longest-running franchise, The Real Housewives of Orange County.

What scripted drama have writers come up with for cast members Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino, Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow? E! News has spoken to a number of them and provided the following preview:

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season Seven Cast

Barney has downgraded in the chest department, reducing the size of her 34 Double Ds - and she couldn't be happier about it.

"It's been one of the best things I have ever done in my life," she says. "I feel a lot more confident without my implants."

Rossi, meanwhile, worried that newbie Dubrow might "have a stick up her ass," but Heather says she was "pleasantly surprised [by] how well we all got along" on the show. Boring!

Tamra Barney is about to go all anti-Nicole Richie on us: The Real Housewives of Orange County star says she will soon have her breast implants taken out.

Says Barney, who has already undergone a reduction in bust size, to Star Magazine:

“Big boobs make you look so much heavier when you're a small girl. I'm 112 lbs., and I have these D boobs popping out. It's a stripper look, and I don't want that!"

No, the stripper look should be reserved for former Housewife Danielle Staub.

Ryan Vieth has allegedly pulled an Anthony Weiner.

The son of Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney, Vieth has a quality, tattooed physique. You can see it in the following photo:

He also has a penis. You can see that in a few other images that have made their way around the World Wide Web. Check them out HERE at your own risk and we apologize in advance if that is some other dude's unit.

We're not about to investigate ourselves.

As far as Tamra Barney is concerned, she's totally rubber.

Slade Smiley? He's glue, and anything he says bounces off The Real Housewife of Orange County and sticks to Gretchen Rossi's boyfriend.

These two continue to go at one another in public, as Smiley told E! News this week that Barney is delusional for claiming he doesn't pay child support. He also finds it very creepy that Tamra has contacted Slade's ex-wife, Michelle.

Barney has now fired back, explaining to the same site that she and Michelle were introduced through a mutual friend and:

"I feel extremely sorry for her and my heart breaks for her and Grayson. Michelle is a very strong woman and went out of her way to contact me today to tell me that she was proud of me for standing up for her and Grayson and to keep my head up."

Slade Smiley is sick of the accusations.

The boyfriend of Gretchen Rossi is the father of 10-year-old Grayson Arroyo-Smiley, who has been diagnosed with diffuse fibrillary astrocytoma, a type of brain cancer. As of February, court documents showed that Smiley owed his ex-wife $139,000 in child support payments, prompting to Tamra Barney to label Slade as a deadbeat dad.

But Smiley has provided forms to E! News that prove his responsibilities are now being met, and he's lashing out at anyone who says otherwise.
