The ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County manage to get into more than their fair share of arguments  so why does that keep happening?

"There's always the good bird and bad bird on my shoulder," Vicki Gunvalson explains to Bravo. "Good bird is, 'Just be good, be quiet, rip her apart after you get off-camera,' and the other one is like, 'No, you have to defend yourself, you have to totally go in for it,' so I am like, 'Which bird do I listen to?'"

"At the end of the day, [the bad bird] is always gonna win," she concludes. 

Vicki says there are specific types of comments from the ladies that make her the most upset.

"I will defend who my character is, and so if somebody wants to break that down, I'm going after them," Vicki explains. "If somebody crosses the line or pisses you off, you better be ready to fight."

Meanwhile, Gretchen Rossi tries to explain why she got so angry during the '80s costume party last season.

"The '80s Bunco party was probably the worst fight I've ever gotten in," Gretchen admits. "Vicki pushed me so far, I couldn't deal anymore  I just unleashed."

"That moment truly was the most raw moment I think I've ever had on camera where it was almost like an out-of-body experience," she adds. "I felt like I had gone crazy."

We suppose that having crimped hair and a neon-colored crop top on probably didn't help her seem less crazy.
