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:

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!

Step aside, Atlanta, New Jersey and Beverly Hills. The originals are about to show you how it's done.

Indeed, the Real Housewives of Orange County - Alexis Bellino, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi, Vicki Gunvalson and newcomer Heather Dubrow kick off season number-seven on February 7.

And based on the first official preview for new episodes, it looks like viewers will be in for the status quo, with the following trailer depicting catfights; plastic surgery chatter; helicopter rides; and, of course, Rossi posing naked.

Watch below.

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.

Sunday's season finale of Real Housewives of Orange County saw Tamra Barney throw red wine (and a cease-and-desist letter) in Jeana Keough's face.

Her motive? Jeana badmouthing Tamra in the press.

But for all her supposed gossiping about Tamra's divorce from estranged ex Simon Barney, Jeana has an ally here in former co-star Gretchen Rossi.

Jeana Keough, Tamra Barney

STEP OFF: Jeana gets served by Tamra. A random d-bag looks on.

"It's very strange how the woman conducts her life," Gretchen Rossi said.

"Tamra threw the letter in her face. Tamra threw the drink in her face but yet, two episodes earlier Tamra was crying to Jeana saying, 'You want my kids to think it's OK to throw something at somebody just because you're mad at them?'"

"And I'm thinking to myself, 'How hypocritical is that?'

"You don't go to a party armed with a cease-and-desist letter," she continued. "To me, that's overly dramatic. That's just looking for attention."

"That's looking for camera time. To throw it in somebody's face when you're an adult like that just shows your level of class and immaturity."

BAM. We're guessing Tamra's not on Gretch's Christmas card list.

You won't believe this, but the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion special will be filled with tears, screaming matches and a great deal of drama.

At the center of it all? Tamra Barney, whose issues with her ex and whose new, nauseating romance have been a major focus of the season.

Over the course of an hour, Barney...

... accuses Gretchen Rossi of "sleeping with another guy while your fiancé was dying."

... screams: "Is your ass jealous of the s–– that comes out of your mouth?" 

... storms off the set after accusing Jeana Keough of lying fighting with Gretchen's boyfriend, Slade Smiley.

Fun times ahead, huh? The excitement will air on Bravo on June 12.

Tamra Barney sure knows how to have a good time.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star recently raised eyebrows for a soft core porn seductive scene in the bathtub with Eddie Judge on the Bravo hit.

Now, the two are at it again, only not on reality TV. Tamra and Eddie partied like college kids in Mexico, with Judge taking body shots off his blonde babe.

If you have the stomach for it, check out Eddie prepping Tamra's stomach for a severe tonguing and then delivering the goods. How jealous are you!?!

Tamra Barney might be engaged to Eddie Judge. But she was definitely naked and seducing him from the inside of a bathtub on the March 20 episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Does she have any regrets over the scripted stunt her actions? Nah.

"I'm a free spirit, so I'm fine with it," Barney tells Life & Style in a new interview.

Alexis Bellino didn't think the scene was appropriate, however, saying on that evening's installment of "Watch What Happens Live" that Tamra's behavior was akin to "soft-core porn."

Barney's response to this transparently contrived controversy? "It probably wasn't one of my better on-camera choices. Because one day I might have to answer to my children, but they don't watch the show. And would they disown me because I'm happy and in love? No."
