All hell breaks loose after Tamra Barney tosses Alexis Bellino out of her party. Vicki is torn between supporting Alexis and her renewed friendship with Tamra, while Heather and Gretchen have no problem seeing Alexis leave. Outside of the party, Alexis claims she is being bullied yet again, but Lydia McLaughlin begs to differ. After the dust has settled on the disastrous affair, Gretchen jets to New York City to support boyfriend Slade Smiley as he deals with his young son undergoing an invasive (but potentially life-saving) surgery. Lydia tries to convince Alexis to make amends with her enemies, and Vicki deals with a bombshell revelation from her son-in-law about Brooks Ayers.
