The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 Episode 2 Recap: Making Friends, Not Amends

by at .

After last week's premiere party, on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 Episode 2, Heather traveled to Turks & Caicos.

In the hopes of helping husband Terry reconnect with their kids, that is. How did that work? And what else went down back in the ol' OC?

When The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 Episode 2 got going, bigger issues were at stake than Terry's home life.

Namely, Vicki Gunvalson was still on the outs with the ladies.

Before Heather left for vacation, Vicki attempted to issue a vague, blanket apology to smooth things over without admitting real wrongdoing.

You know, Sorry Not Sorry, Real Housewives Style.

Elsewhere, Tamra tried to comfort son Ryan Vieth re: his sadly failing relationship, while Shannon Beador got a pearl necklace from David.

No, get your minds out of the gutter now, people.

Meghan King Edmonds had the ladies over for pizza, at which point Brooks Ayers made a controversial appearance (in spirit) once again.

We also learned a lot about new wife Kelly Dodd and her interesting living situation, but let's get down to business with Brooks first.

Listening to the women even try to explain this guy ...

Having gotten the Brooks Ayers faking cancer rundown, Kelly asked if Vicki had ever meddled in any of the other cast members' relationships.

Tamra answered hells yes, re: her ex Simon Barney.

That situation is bad even by reality show standards, as she hasn't seen her daughter in two YEARS and there's no end in sight apparently.

"I sent him an email, I said, ‘Please, we need to come together and talk about this, tell these kids they need their parents,'" she said.

"And he said, ‘No.'" Tamra lamented.

That's when Kelly Dodd did her one better, or close, revealing that she went through a divorce for two years … from her current husband.

"Oh, so your husband now is not the father of your daughter," Shannon said, confused, to which Kelly said, "No, he is. I went back with him."

Cue crickets and awkward smiles.

Yes, after a two-year long divorce - and even an engagement to another man - Kelly Dodd got back together with her husband Michael.

"Isn't that crazy?" she asked, noting that despite the fact that he had become "like Hitler" and a "control freak," this was for the best.

"It was a nightmare," Kelly said. "It made me realize it was easier being with him and having my family together than being divorced."

"We don't have a perfect marriage at all, but I'm going to suck it up just like my parents did," Kelly said. "He's a really nice person."

So to sum up, Kelly lives with her mom, brother, daughter and husband who has been diagnosed with a narcissistic personality disorder. 

As you'll see when you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, the look on Tamra Barney Judge's face was everything.
