Tensions were high among the cast of the Real Housewives of Orange County, as the ladies gathered to shoot the Season 8 reunion on Wednesday, July 10.

Many of the Housewives tweeted in anticipation of filming, and one in particular brought a little liquid courage to help ease the day.

“It's #RHOC reunion day,” wrote Heather Dubrow. “I'm armed with tunes, a bottle of Champs to share & the TRUTH.”

Within minutes, Heather was whisked away into hair and makeup, where she was transformed from a fresh-faced beauty into a bombshell babe.

“Sneak peek of my face for #RHOCreunion,” she tweeted, alongside photos of the before and after. “Hair by the amazing Kelly Kline! Makeup by me! #Straightlocks #Tomfordpallette #Maclashes #nudelip.”

How do you think Heather looks when she’s not all done up?
