‘Tis the season! Well, the end of the season, that is. And here we are in Vicki’s Winter Wonderland to celebrate. Despite her wintery decor, things appear to really be heating up for the Real Housewives of Orange County finale, set to air Monday, August 5.
In case you can’t wait until Monday’s finale airs, here’s the scoop on some of the action you can expect:
I’ve gotta say, the biggest shocker for me is a huge fight between two of the least likely people. I mean, who isn’t expecting drama between Vicki & Slade or Tamra & Gretchen (more on those later) but how bout this one: Briana’s seemingly even-keeled husband Ryan Culberson vs. Lydia’s hippie, pot-smoking mom Judy Stirling. And guess what about? Judy, who said she’d only had one drink (and probably a couple o’ doobies) apparently was relaxing with her feet up on Vicki’s brand new sofa. Ryan found this extremely disrespectful and asked her (perhaps not-so-politely) to remove them. This one’s reminiscent of last season’s drunk-girl-finger-in-cake-gate if you ask me. The argument spins out of control to the point of Ryan yelling and cussing and telling fairy-duster Judy to hit the road. Vicki, her brother, Briana, and Lydia all get involved and it isn’t a pretty scene. Bottom line: WTF Ryan?! Yes, it isn’t so great that someone put their feet on your (well, your mother-in-law’s) couch but is that kind of reaction EVER appropriate? Maybe if she put her feet up on baby Troy’s face but other than that…sheesh! Friendly Dish speculates that he’s just off his rocker because he’s only home for this one weekend, is about to ship out again, and he finds that Vicki is throwing a huge ass party with the whole world watching. And let’s face it, Vicki isn’t probably the most stress-free of mother-in-laws. But still, his behavior is completely indefensible. See for yourself:
Next, on to the expected drama. Vicki, with Lydia in tow, approaches Slade about his bashing of women’s appearances. The ladies think that it’s totally unacceptable for a man to ever make fun of the way a woman looks. Fair enough. But then, I kind of agree with Slade that if you can dish it out, you should be able to take it. Vicki even says that it’s like making fun of a man about his money. Pretty sure she’s done that to him, right?! What else was she saying when she accused him of not paying child support? I agree that Slade has said some pretty insensitive things about Vicki and, don’t get me wrong, I think he’s pretty much a total scumbag, but not sure I agree that there’s some sacred rule about what you can and can’t poke fun of a woman or a man about. I’ll wait to see how the whole scene unfolds before passing my final judgement on this one:
Finally, looks like we’ll be seeing plenty of drama amongst the ladies themselves. Tamra and Gretchen accuse each other of lies and deception, Gretchen and Heather have it out about Malibu Country, and somehow, Alexis is brought to tears when her husband Jim faces the other women for the first time all season. Oh, and Vicki’s back with Brooks which makes everyone uncomfortable and Briana says she’s moving out.
It’s sure to be among the most dramatic finales yet! Will you be watching?
