The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 7 Recap: 'Tis the Season!

by at .  Updated at .

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.

As for Vicki Gunvalson, she is in Oklahoma looking at houses with Brianna and her husband Ryan. Vicks is not happy about this, to be sure.

It takes a surprisingly long time by her standards, but soon enough, she's complaining to Ryan about taking her daughter away. She is off her rocker.

Ryan's anger management treatment must be really progressing, because if there was ever a time where he could have snapped, it was here.

Didn't happen. Speaking of people almost begging to be told to shut up? At a play date, Heather tries aggressively to convince us how smart she is.

Heather wonders if Shannon is obsessed with her, when really, Heather is probably as obsessed with Heather as any human can possibly be.

Later, while Shannon has a party, she, Lizzie and Danielle sit around and bitch about Heather like eight-year-olds. Maybe Dubrow has a point.

Finally, Heather calls Shannon and invites her out for a drink so they can fix the tension between them. The producers are working this one overtime.

As Shannon tries to explain herself, Heather is correcting her. Both need to get in the ring and physically fight this out, then move on, we think.

At issue, ostensibly, is the chair swap from a few weeks ago, proving that there is no issue too small for these morons to make it into a huge ordeal.

And we love them for it, to be sure, but still. Morons!
