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 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."

Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers of The Real Housewives of Orange County are still dating despite their scandals, fights and public breakups, a report claims.

Vicki Gunvalson, Brooks Ayers

While the finale of the Real Housewives of OC reunion saw Brooks clash with Briana, Vicki's daughter, it was taped ... and a lot has changed since.

The couple's alleged breakup came following the release of audio tapes revealing Brooks’ darker side, and on top of a season that was very tumultuous.

Viewers saw businessman Brooks clash with Vicki, her castmates, and her daughter, Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson, who was present at the reunion.

Part three of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion special took a serious and nasty turn last night when Briana accused Brooks of abuse.

Early and often in the final installment of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, the conversation turned to Vicki Gunvalson's boyfriend.

That being Brooks Ayers, the man NO ONE seems to like.

For good reason, if what Vicki's daughter Briana said about him is true. Briana and husband Ryan, as fans know, refuse to even be around him.

This has often made Vicki edgy, and has resulted in lingering tension - which finally boiled over last night when Briana UNLOADED on Brooks:

While the world is still reeling from Miley Cyrus Twerking at the VMAs, the dramatic conclusion to The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 will hopefully take our minds off Hannah Montana's Humpty Dancing.

Did anyone else ever imagine Miley Cyrus and the OC housewives being mentioned in the same sentence? Yeah, me neither.

Anyway. Let's get to it with THG's +/- recap!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Say Cheers

Andy's first question for Heather is about her house and the offer they couldn't refuse. The model of their new house is built and they hope to break ground by December. Plus 8?

Next he brings up Heather's return to acting and Terry's many attempts at joking his way through the stress of flying solo. Heather defends their on-camera fighting as part of real life after being together for 16 years. Plus 15.

On next week's reunion special, Vicki Gunvalson claims she's "done with the show," but is she really leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County?

Apparently, tension between the cast members and Vicki over her on-again off-again boyfriend Brooks Ayers finally boils over on next week's installment.

Vicki Can't Believe It

“Guess what, Vicki’s done with the show!” Gunvalson proclaims as she walks off the set of Monday's climactic part three of the reunion special.

Next week, Vicki, Brooks Ayers, and her daughter Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson all let the vitriol fly, and it gets quite epic, even by RHOC standards.

In one instance of dueling tempers, the unpopular Brooks and Briana go at it, as her husband Ryan's antics are brought up and she says to Vicki’s love interest:

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?
