Jeana, Tamra, Lynne, Vicki and Gretchen all return tonight for yet another season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County”. In the season premiere, “When Times Get Tough, The Tough Go Shopping,” the housewives get together at Lynne’s house for what is suppose to be a fun reunion but, of course, the drama of the past gets in the way.
Apparently, the awkward screaming match between Tamra and Gretchen during last season’s reunion hasn’t been forgotten. The rift, which started with Gretchen getting a little too flirty with Tamra’s son Ryan and boiled over after Tamra accused Gretchen of having an affair with a 40-year-old “friend” named Jay while she was engaged to her fiance Jeff, apparently has only continued to escalate. But, despite the fact that they despise each other, the ladies try to put that behind them and act civil for Lynne (who they all still think is a flake).
Predictably, this doesn’t last long and before you know it, they are in a heated argument because neither one of them will apologize for what she said to the other. Let the games begin.
We also meet Alexis Bellino, the newest housewife who is a 32-year-old stay-at-home mom of three small children. Alexis will actually be Jeana’s replacement as the third episode will be her last. She claims she wants to concentrate on her real estate business and her kids but apparently she is also shopping around a reality show of her own and an autobiography. This leaves Vicki as the last standing original housewife.
The season 5 premiere airs tonight at 10 PM EST on Bravo.
