Tonight on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki will have to decide between Brooks and Baby Troy. Will she run away for a weekend with her lover or will her loyalty to Briana win out?

We know what we're hoping for. And it's certainly not more screen time for Brooks.

Find out who Vicki chooses as we recap tonight's episode with our THG +/- review!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 Cast

Tamra and Heather kick off tonight's episode with a glass of wine and a little girl talk. Heather felt that Gretchen and Slade's behavior at Hot in Cleveland was disrespectful and weird. And it was. Minus 10.

Tonight on The Real Housewives of Orange County, the gang travels to L.A. to watch Heather's taping of Hot In Cleveland. 

Are Vicki and Tamra close to a truce? What does Gretchen think?

Find out all of that and more as we break down tonight's episode with our THG +/- review!

Heather Dubrow on RHOC

At Casa Dubrow, Heather's heading to work on the set of Hot In Cleveland. Terry's stepping it up to help her out. Way to go, Terry! Plus 10.

Tamra stops in at a jewelry store to look for wedding bands for Eddie. Her plan is to get the ball rolling so he'll follow suit. Her friend Lauri stops in to help her shop. The jeweler pours a glass of champagne to "loosen her up." Pretty sure it didn't take champagne. 

Lauri tells Tamra that her goal after marrying her husband George was to blend their family. Then she invokes She Who Will Not Be Named (Vicki) and Tamra tells Lauri all about how she was the only one who stood by Vicki and all the drama with Brooks.

Apparently Vicki breached confidences between Tamra and Simon and broke girl code. Minus 5

If there's one thing The Real Housewives of Orange County love, it's wine. Vicki and Tamra launched Wines by Wives last season and now it's time to focus on building their business.

Except they're not really friends anymore, so this should make for interesting office politics.

Join us now as we break it all down with our THG +/- system!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 Cast

At Casa Dubrow, Terry asks the most disgusting question a husband can ask a wife. "Do you want to cut my toenails?" Minus 20

These two are still on the outs following their dinner the night before. She tries to explain why she was hurt the night before and he just goes right on clipping his toenails. Minus 10

Heather's issue is that she needs support from Terry instead of jokes. Terry cracks another joke.

Get it together, you two!

The wine is in and Tamra checks to make sure she's the center wife on the label. She and Eddie head out to Malibu for a little wine tasting with the girls. 

Tamra's jealous of Eddie's bike and says if there's anyone he would ever have an affair with, it would be his bike.

Vicki climbs into the limo with the Dubrows and the McLaughlins. She's feeling like a fifth wheel as the only person on the trip without a significant other.

Things don't seem to be so sunny for the Real Housewives of Orange County. Relationship troubles abound for these buxom blondes (and Heather and Lydia). 

Will Vicki and Tamra ever be friends again? How does Terry really feel about Heather working?

Find out that and more in our THG +/- recap!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 Cast

Tamra, Heather, and Lydia meet for lunch and split a bottle of "champs." Heather believes Lydia deserves her own chance to fit in independent of Alexis. 

Lydia's mom likes glitter. She calls it "fairy dust." Minus 5.

She sprinkles it on people who are having a bad day. Lydia's mom should probably sprinkle some fairy dust all over these women. 

Tamra calls herself "vocal." Lydia calls her "straight crazy." 

Talk turns to Alexis and Tamra calls Alexis a puppy who craps on the floor. Oh, Tamra. Such a way with words.

At the Bellino house, Jim's gotten new "flannels" and Alexis is de-facing herself for the night. This has to be an hour-long process, removing all her makeup. 

Jim wonders why Alexis went to the party at all and Alexis says that if she could go back in time she wouldn't have gone. Then Jim called her insane? I think? 

Minus 30 for making us watch Jim moisturize his face.

Previously on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki invited Alexis to a party at Tamra's new gym. Because nothing says "let's be friends again" like inviting your former friend's worst enemy to a party.

Oh, Vicki.

What else will Lady Gunvalson stir up? Read THG's +/- recap to find out now!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 Cast

Alexis comes to visit Vicki and gives her a little Rah Rah about her plastic surgery. And a mirror so she'll always know how beautiful she is. Okay, okay, it's kind of sweet. Plus 4.

Vicki drops the bomb on Alexis that she wants Alexis to come to the party at Tamra's with her. When Vicki says she needs Alexis there, Alexis' tone changes. Alexis wants to bring Lydia so Vicki texts Tamra to find out if that's okay. 

Tamra's response: "Yeah. I just don't want any nonsense. This is supposed to be a happy time." 

Just to recap, Alexis agrees to go to a party where she knows she's not really wanted and asks to bring a guest. Minus 8.

There's a new housewife in town on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Lydia McLaughlin joins the crew.

Will the truce between Vicki and Tamra hold? How will Lydia fit in with the rest of the women?

We're about to find out!.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 Cast

Alexis is the first housewife invited over to Vicki's house to meet Baby Troy. She brings lunch. Plus 10. That's how it works. A new baby is born and people should take food.

That baby is so cute. He's like a grumpy little old man! Plus 15 for cuteness!

Everything is going great and then Alexis brings up Brooks. Briana gets really quiet and gives a telling "huh." Vicki says she can't explain what's going on with Brooks to anyone because even she doesn't know what's going on. But it seems that she's not saying anything because Briana's at the table.

The Real Housewives of Orange County returned last week with a baby and a whimper.

Tonight, Vicki's "work" is a hot topic for discussion and there's enough Jim and Alexis to make us all want to take a scalding hot shower to burn the ick off our skin.

Plus, Heather will try to broker a peace agreement between Vicki and Tamra.

You know, just another day in Orange County!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 Cast

At Casa Dubrow, the ladies have gathered for a clambake. Gretchen breaks the ice with Vicki first by asking about her new grandson Troy and Briana. Plus 5 Gretchen! Atta girl.

Tamra's not really interested in having a conversation with Vicki, but is certainly interested in talking about Vicki's recent plastic surgery. Not like she's never had any work done.

Pot and kettle and such. Minus 7.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson defended her plastic surgery and slammed co-stars Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi Monday.

  • Vicki Gunvalson Plastic Surgery
  • Vicki Gunvalson Before Plastic Surgery

On The Real Housewives of Orange County season premiere, Vicki debuted her “new face” - tweaks to her chin and nose - only to be mocked  by Tamra and Gretchen.

Barney and Rossi felt the look "was too masculine."

So when a fan called in to Watch What Happens Live afterward asking what Vicki thought of Tamra and Gretchen’s friendship, the 51-year-old mother of two went off:

As the Beverly Hills crew bows out, the ORH (that's "Original Real Housewives") are back as the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 premieres!

This season promises drama, babies, and lots of blonde headed women - and Heather - knocking back wine and "champs" on Bravo's flagship franchise.

With new cast member Lydia McLaughlin joining in and former cast member Lauri Peterson set to return this season, there's sure to be some drama.

This should be awesome.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 Cast

Vicki's redecorating to celebrate Donn's exit and Brianna and Ryan's entrance. She's ready to dive right into her role as grandmother. Plus 10.

A quick Minus 5 for calling Brianna huge. 

Plus 3 for moving the furniture with her assistant instead of waiting for a man to help her and another Plus 5 for the wine break while moving it!

Still reeling from Slade comparing her to Miss Piggy during his stand-up gig last season, Vicki's been working out in the off season. And by working out, we of course mean getting a nose job, cheek injections, and a chin implant.

But hey, at least she's not hiding behind "sinus surgery." Plus 12 for honesty. Except she hasn't told the other women.

They just reunited as a cast, but will The Real Housewives of Orange County be splitting up for Season 8?

Sources tell The New York Post that Bravo is seeking to freshen up the franchise, with producers having already sent an email saying they are looking for "fabulous affluent women and their families who live in amazing homes to potentially be on this series."

Which cast members may get the boot if new irritating, spoiled women are brought on board?

Not Real Housewives of Orange County

Vicki Gunvalson and Alexis Bellino.

The latter was slammed throughout Season 7 and rumors began to circulate last week that she may not return in 2013. She didn't exactly make a positive impression on executives when she left early during filming in Costa Rica a few months ago.

The future of Gunvalson is more unclear, but one possibility is for her pregnant 24-year-old daughter, Brianna Wolfsmith, to join the cast. She eloped last year and there's plenty of potential for fireworks there.

Would you be sad to see Vicki or Alexis go, viewers?
