Vicki Gunvalson asks Tamra Barney for a favor that went horribly wrong making it one of the most crazy dinner parties from Hell on this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Tamra Is throwing the party for her close friends to show off her new CUT fitness center and after just barely making up with her frenemy Vicki, then Vicki (who should have known better) asks Tamra if she could bring Alexis Bellino as her plus one guest (you may remember Tamra and Alexis are bitter enemies since last season when Alexis and her husband Jim threatened to sue Tamra over her inflammatory remarks calling Alexis “Jesus Jugs”). Tamra felt put on the spot and too quickly said yes, a decision she knew right away that she would come to regret.
The lines are quickly drawn with Tamra and her BFF’s Gretchen Rossi and Heather Dubrow staying close together on the couch while Vicki and Alexis enter the party dragging a scared looking Lydia McLaughlin, the newest Housewife who has yet to meet these high strung ladies.
Lots of tension and mean girl whispering is going on, so much so that it prompts Gretchen to comment “this is so beyond awkward and weird.” Finally dinner is served and as the ladies sit down, Vicki proposes a toast to Tamra and awkwardly thanks her for allowing her to bring Alexis to the party and that maybe tonight can be the start of a clean slate.
Tamra then interjects saying she has to be “100 percent honest” and tells Alexis she just doesn’t understand why she wanted to come and that “the last I heard from you is you and your husband wanted to sue me.” To which a feisty Alexis replies, “Guess what, it shut you up!” And then it’s on! Everyone starts screaming at each other and Alexis starts using the bully card again, saying that all the women are bullying her, which leads Heather to say, ” You know what Alexis, you knew what you were walking into, I’m sorry.”
Which then leads to the women displaying lots of childish “don’t point that finger at me, don’t hold your hand up to me” talk and more of everyone hurling accusations and insults all around the table when Heather then says the best zinger ever heard at a dinner party to shut Alexis up saying “This is juvenile, I’m done, I just glazed. By the way I can’t even hear you anymore.”
The dinner then comes to a dramatic climax when Alexis tells Tamra to butt out and Tamra loses it screaming like an insane person “Butt out, you get the f**k out!” as she physically gets up and pulls Alexis out of her dinner chair. Alexis won’t shut up the whole way, screaming as she is escorted out and then Tamra turns her rage on Vicki and screams “Sorry Vicki you can choose your side right now and if you’re going to side with her then you get the f**k out too. Done!”
Alexis writes on her blog, “That moment was so surreal for me. Tamra, Gretchen, and Heather are all screaming at me. I am scared Tamra is going to hit me when she walks over to my chair, and then my ex-friend is clapping while I’m getting thrown out of the party. I was crushed.”
