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!.

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!

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?

Not much can top Tamra's nicknaming Alexis "Jesus Jugs" last week, but with Brooks and Briana stopping by the Real Housewives of Orange County are going to try.

Someone get poor Andy Cohen a helmet. Or vodka.

Let's get to part two of the RHOC Reunion with our THG +/- review.

Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion

Andy addresses Gretchen and Alexis' falling out first. It's clear that Alexis is more upset about this than Gretchen is because her hands are flapping around like she's trying to direct an airplane to landing.

Nose job. Sinus surgery. You didn't have my back. Yes, I did. Whatever. If Alexis attempts to look down her new nose any more she's going to go cross-eyed.

And now Alexis' Fox 5 segment comes up. Gretchen pulls out an email that proves that Fox 5 wanted her first. Alexis says the producer said they'd never offered Gretchen the job. Neither woman can see that a producer might say whatever needed to be said to get the job done. Minus 12.

On Part 2 of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, Gretchen Rossi reportedly accuses Vicki Gunvalson of cheating on her husband with Brooks Ayers.

Vicki's daughter Briana Wolfsmith triggers a vicious war of words between her mom, Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney on the combative reunion special.

The fight was triggered when host Andy Cohen asks Briana about Vicki's relationship with now-beau Brooks Ayers before she was separated from husband Don.

Briana did not hold back.

  • Gretchen Rossi Pic
  • Vicki Gunvalson Pic

"I've known that name for years and never liked him," Briana says, as if her feelings toward Brooks weren't clear already. "He's been around for a long time."

Gretchen Rossi, whose blowouts with Vicki are legendary, weighs in, "You were accusing a lot of stuff with me, wow … I just think it's funny you were so accusatory of me."

"I was!" Vicki snaps. "I was doing nothing of the same things!"

"Why would it be weird? My husband was having an affair for 20 years," she says in her own defense. "This is not the forum to be discussing … he's not an angel."

This spills over into the ongoing Tamra Barney-Vicki Gunvalson feud, as Tamra jumps in, offering to disclose a salacious tidbit about Vicki's vacation hijinks.

Vicki then calls Tamra "disgusting," denying her claims she woke up naked with a man in Cabo ... and so on and so forth. Should make for quality television.

Two weeks after The Real Housewives of Orange County season finale, the women are sitting down on Andy Cohen's couches in Part One of the Season 7 reunion.

Will Alexis get an apology for being called phony? (Probably not.) Will Vicki have to defend Brooks? (Probably.) And how many times will she say "love tank"? (One time too many.)

Let's find out in THG's Real Housewives of Orange County +/- recap!

Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion

Tamra's hair is as big as Alexis' boobs. Minus 5.

We're 60 seconds in and Vicki's already lamenting the fact that Brianna eloped and almost had cancer. Minus 10.

Andy just pointed out that Gretchen and Tamra have swapped hairstyles. Which explains everything. And he's wasting no time asking about Vicki's fur coat. Plus 2.

Alexis says the reason she mispronounced Katie Couric's last name is because she has an accent. You know, like the British. Minus 4.

Here it goes, Alexis and the infamous Fox 5 news reporter scandal. She says that Jim's douche-maneuver in virtually everything regarding Alexis and what she wants, is just because he has a strong personality. Heather calls her out on it and says it's like he's her Daddy. Then she slams Tamra saying "she's still married."

They're no strangers to drama, but the war of words that erupted between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney on The Real Housewives of Orange County season finale this week was extreme even by their standards.

What's more, it apparently continues on the upcoming reunion show.

"Vicki insinuated that I cheated on my ex-husband, Simon, with [my current fiancé Eddie Judge]," Tamra revealed after Tuesday's fireworks. "That was just way out of line. Out of anybody in the world, for her to say that, was just totally below the belt."

  • Vicki Gunvalson Pic
  • Tamra Barney Real Housewives

Tamra and Vicki's feuding began on the June 26 finale, and when the pair reunited six months later to film the reunion show, things only got worse.

What's changed? "It all comes down to Brooks [Ayers]," Tamra says, blaming Vicki's new man for brainwashing her former BFF. "

"He's changed her so much, I just don't know if she's the same Vicki."

All season long, Tamra questioned Brooks' motives. The reason?

"He's obsessed with the show; I think he's obsessed with being famous," says Tamra, who says Vicki is in denial. "I don't want to see her getting taken advantage of, but she doesn't want to hear anything anybody says, so my hands are tied."

"Right now I am extremely angry with her. I'm broken up with her."

The fight breaks out during part one of the reunion, which airs July 10 at 9 p.m. Tell us: Whose side are you on in the RHOC feud?
