None of Your Business

The 80s raged on with the Real Housewives of Orange County this week. The Bunko (Bunco?) party from hell continues with Gretchen and Vicki finally going at it over Slade's comedy routine. But the fights don't end there. A defensive Alexis gets snippy with Heather, Tamra, and Gretchen over her upcoming nose job/sinus surgery. Then, Briana goes in for her surgery hoping for the best. We got to see Don this week, and he looks great and seems to be happy - or as happy as possible while going through a divorce. We miss you, Don!

So, let's dive right in, shall we?

Alexis: I think you took the snickering and laughing as a jab at you because you're still not trusting of Tamra and Heather. The fact that they even mentioned your surgery was going to set you off regardless. I'm not saying it's right, but that's probably where you were coming from. Wanting Gretchen to always jump up and defend you is not really mature, though. You stood up for yourself and she wasn't taking sides. I don't know what else you expect her to do when she's in the middle - literally. I say, let them laugh. Do what you want and don't pay attention to what anyone (especially Tamra) has to say. Alexis' grade for the week: C.

Gretchen: You went to bat for Slade in a major way this week. Not only did you defend yourself and make it clear you didn't sign off on the "comedy" bit, but you slammed Vicki with the whole Brooks is a deadbeat dad thing. I loved it when you were able to stand up and say that Slade was never any of Vicki's business either. That was great. But did she get it? Of course not. You're not going to be able to get anywhere with her, so it's best to just drop it. I think you were a good friend to Alexis, but because she's so needy, it's never enough. You're just in one tough spot after another, kiddo. Gretchen's grade for the week: B+.

Vicki: I feel for you. You are going through a lot. But you have got to start listening to other people. For example, you didn't get what Gretchen was trying to say at all. You kept repeating that you don't condone a man who doesn't support his kids - but yet, you're dating someone who has that same issue in his past. Don't you think Slade would have been in jail by now if everything you're saying is true? And beyond that, why is it your concern in the first place? You can dislike someone and keep your opinion to yourself about them. It is possible. And it's ridiculous that you would expect people to NOT talk about Brooks when you talk about EVERYONE. It's karma, and you're face to face with her. Do yourself a favor and stop talking and start listening. When Briana says it's always about you no matter what, that's a big problem. Especially when she's the one who might have cancer. Think about it. Vicki's grade for the week: F.

Tamra: It's almost as if we have two Tamra's. The good friend who brings coffee and doesn't want people to fight at her party, and the mean girl who tells someone who's insecure about their nose that their nose is big. Wow. I do think you're a good friend, but I also think you're a mean girl who likes to talk sh*t. There's nothing wrong with that, but it won't keep too many friends around. I think you say what you need to say to Vicki and you say what you need to say to everyone else. Is that being bipolar? Or just fake? I guess it all depends on the intention behind it. And with you, I'm never quite sure. Tamra's grade for the week: D.

Heather: Your expressions were priceless this week. I love that you wanted to make it right with Alexis, but let's be real, you guys were kind of laughing at her. Or maybe at the idea of someone saying it's a sinus surgery when it's really a nose job, and she just happened to be the person that inspired the conversation. Either way, I don't think you were being malicious at all. And yes, these women really do act like this. You weren't there last year for the drink throwing and pushing. Oh yeah. Heather's grade for the week: B.
