The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 premiere ended with the ladies gathering together at Heather Dubrow’s clambake, where Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson awkwardly avoided each other at the intimate party.
According to our RHOC synopsis for Season 8, Episode 2, the drama escalates when Tamra and Vicki attempt to fix their friendship during the swanky shindig — locking themselves in a wine cellar, no less. The two revisit the disagreements that drove them apart, trying to mend their relationship in the process. More tensions arise when the other ladies try not to gawk at Vicki’s recent plastic surgery and her “facial tweaking.”
Meanwhile, two Real Housewives of Orange County relationships heat up in polar opposite ways, with Heather becoming fed up with husband Terry’s sense of humor, and Alexis Bellino getting cozy with hubby Jim during ballroom dancing lessons.
Later, Gretchen pays a visit to boyfriend Slade Smiley at his new radio hosting gig to offer moral support. And as Tamra and Eddie settle into their new living situation together, Eddie reveals some concerns about Vicki that catch Tamra off guard.
Sounds like a lot excitement packed into just one episode! What are you most excited to see coming up on Real Housewives of Orange County?
