The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 Episode 6 Recap: Full Circle

by at .

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 Episode 6, a lot of things came "Full Circle" for our favorite ladies from Southern California.

While Vicki Gunvalson returned home to Chicago to mourn the loss of her beloved mother, Tamra Barney celebrated the birth of her first grandchild.

Hard to drive home the circle of life more poignantly than that.

Meanwhile, Shannon Beador kept on working on her marriage with David; and Meghan King Edmonds tried to bond with her stepdaughter Hayley.

Were they successful? And what else went on last night?

You'll have to watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online to find out, but the biggest storylines belonged to Vicki and Tamra.

As the O.G. cast members, the gravity of the situation was hard to ignore. "One life in, one life out," Gunvalson told Barney pre-funeral.

"I feel lost, I feel lonely. I need my mom."

"My mom liked you," Gunvalson joked through tears. "She said, 'Why is Tamra so mean to you? I said, 'I don't know, I'll have to ask her.'"

Tamra, who had kind words for Vicki in her time of need, later joked that she was "going to be the hottest grandma in Orange County."

Sounds about right.

Tamra liked her new granddaughter, Ava, the progeny of Ryan Vieth, her adult son (she has three younger kids as well). Cried Barney:

"My first born just had his first born. I'm a grandma now. It's precious, and I also feel a little old … my whole life has changed forever."

In Chicago, Gunvalson bid farewell to her mom. She said, "I physically picked my mom out of the casket and sobbed on her cheek."

"She laid down on her bed and died in her home with her dog lying next to her," Gunvalson said afterward. "She just went to sleep."

A genuinely funny, light moment came when Shannon Beador visited Vicki, bringing her homeopathic remedies for grief and calming.

Gunvalson said she needed to see "median," as she had done following her father's death, to ask her late mother some questions.

"Vicki, I think you mean medium, not median," said Beador, who's gone through some serious ups and downs this season as well.

"I'm the wife of a highway construction contractor. A median is in the middle of a highway … it doesn't talk to dead people. Medium!"

LOL. Serious topics like birth, life, death, grief and loss aside ... you gotta give it to Shannon for the line of the night right there.
