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.

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.

On Monday's The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 5, Lizzie Rovsek took over and gave Vicki Gunvalson a run for her show-running money.

You can watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online to see it for yourself, but when Vicki came face to face with the new girl, it did not go smoothly.

One got the impression knowing Vicki that she would not like Lizzie Rovsek from the start, but this was tense and awkward even by RHOC standards.

With the ladies getting together for what was supposed to be a fun holiday dinner, Vicki and Lizzie went at it in the limo for reasons more or less unknown.

It was as if Vicki saw Lizzie and her giant boobs and hair and decided this was an enemy she had to take down on the spot, and by any means necessary.

Seriously, we've seen police suspects treated more respectfully.

So far, The Real Housewives of Orange County season 9 has been kind of a snooze, but that's sure to change with new housewife Lizzie Rovsek on the block.

Last night, Tamra and Heather met Lizzie for the first time at an ugly sweater party...and Heather couldn't stop staring at Lizzie's sweater puppies.

"Girls with big boobs know they have big boobs," Lizzie says in an interview, and suddenly we all like her a lot.

As previously mentioned, the night began with Tamra and Eddie joining Heather and Terry at an Ugly Sweater party held by new friend of the housewives Danielle Gregorio.

Tamra lamented the fact that the sweaters had to be ugly despite her own penchant for throwing themed parties that don't always result in the most fashionable costuming choices. (The 80s called, Tamra. They want their crimper back.)

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has reportedly split from Brooks Ayers and has taken up with a new man in John Pankauski.

Gunvalson and Ayers went through a bitter split, only to get back together despite warnings from her friends and family. Now it looks like it's over for real.

Vicki Doesn't Believe The News

Vicki met John Pankauski, an attorney, in New York City recently and apparently hit it off immediately. Says a source close to the reality star:

“Vicki met John when he was meeting with her production company Woo Hoo and she had dinner with him and brought him to a Watch What Happens Live taping."

“They are working together on a few projects, but there are sparks flying.”

Unlike Brooks Ayers, who's entangled in multiple lawsuits over child support and other issues, Pankauski seems a much better match for Gunvalson.

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.

Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino will be noticeably absent if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online and catch up on last night's premiere.

Suffice it to say, returning cast members Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson aren't exactly what you'd call broken up over the exile of their former co-stars.

Vicki, Tamra, and Heather Hit Hawaii
Vicki and Tamra tag along with Heather for a girls' weekend when Heather goes to Hawaii to film a role on Hawaii Five-0.

The Season 9 opener saw Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek taking over for the departed twosome, and for Tamra and Vicki, there is no love lost.

In fact, the ladies threw major shade at their former co-stars in a live television interview Monday on NBC's TODAY, admitting they don’t miss them.

At all.

“We ran them out of the O.C.,” Tamra said, to which Kathie Lee Gifford asked if they missed them and Vicki said, “I miss Alexis. Her and I are good friends.”

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.

Vicki Gunvalson split from Donn Gunvalson in 2010.

But the wounds are still fresh and the memories are still strong for this Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, who recently opened up about the divorce.

And placed the blame squarely on the program that made her rich and famous.

"There's some really great things that have come from the show," Gunvalson tells Digital Spy. "But one of the downsides was that it broke up my family."
