The summer season is full of reruns and made-for-TV movies, but you can rest assured that the Real Housewives of Orange County will be back with the Season 8 finale on Monday, August 5 at 9 p.m.

After Slade Smiley insulted Vicki Gunvalson on his radio show, she’s bound and determined to confront him at her Winter Wonderland bash. Surprisingly, the conversation starts out pretty low-key — in fact, Vicki even gifts him with a bottle from her line of bacon vodka.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Housewives party without a little drama, and things quickly get heated between the rivals. “Be careful with your tongue,” Vicki warns. “BE CAREFUL OF YOUR TONGUE WHEN YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT WOMEN’S LOOKS.”

Meanwhile, Vicki’s son-in-law Ryan decides to lay down the law when he threatens to throw Lydia’s mom out of the house. Gretchen gets into it with both Tamra and Heather (they just can’t let that Malibu Country thing go, can they?), and Alexis is brought to tears when her husband faces the ladies for the first time all year.

Needless to say, this is one finale that’s not to be missed. Especially when we know that next week’s reunion is going to “fricking intense!”

Tune in when the Season 8 finale airs on Monday, August 5 at 9 p.m. on Bravo!
