Tamra and Gretchen were awful. What was with Gretchen making snide comments as people talked?

I haven't watched the last episode yet, but I feel like she's a Tamra wannabe. Only it doesn't really work for her, she just looks obnoxious and stupid.

I really don't like the new girl - something about her, she seems so childish

I totally agree with the PP. The new girl is a terrible fit with the other housewives. I think she is way too young. Just listen to her speak - her vocabulary makes her sound like she is about 15 years old. She is getting on my last nerve already.

Are we watching the same show?

I personally thought that Alexis didn't belong at Tamra's dinner. If it was a dinner with her "closest" friends and was to celebrate her being a small business owner, then it wasn't appropriate. I don't know if this was a Bravo mandate that all the cast members had to be there, hence the "domino" invite of Alexis and Lydia.

If it's true that Alexis hadn't seen Tamra in several months and had been threatening to sue, I could see why Tamra was defensive and apprehensive. I thought it was nice of Alexis to say right off the bat to Tamra that she was there to support her being a businesswoman and all that. I also felt that Tamra could have gotten her buns off the couch to hug the 3 ladies instead of making them bend down to hug her.

That said, Alexis then started to make it all about her. "I know how hard it is, I had a dress line." Twice. Blah blah blah. Then Vicki starts in on her darn insurance. I can see where Tamra would get upset about this. This is supposed to be about her, and then her guests start making it all about them. Alexis also went on to babble about the tension and maybe she should leave "check please" so I think she added extra tension to the situation.

Alexis seemed to be ready to rumble with Heather and Gretchen. I applaud Vicki for staying quiet, since that shocked me. IMHO Alexis couldn't let it drop, and then started up with the ganging up on and bullying baloney. Then it went downhill from there.

I do believe then after Alexis told Tamra to butt out, then it was more than appropriate for Tamra to tell Alexis to leave. Tamra is no angel but Alexis was there just for drama.

I'm curious to see what Vicki's response is going to be from the previews.

I can't stand Gretchen!!! I have never cared for her because she comes off phony. This season the real Gretchen has come to play. Tamara is being Tamara. She is a mean women and that is who she is. She thrives on drama and now she has an equal partner in Gretchen. Alexis should not have come but I'm sure Bravo wanted the drama so she went. Tamara started the trouble and Alexis played right into her hands. Gretchen, Tamara, and Heather are not nice. I'm not a fan of Alexis but the three of them teamed up and went full steam ahead. I hope Vickie leaves the party and goes with Alexis. If Vickie wants to change her life she needs to get rid of Tamara! Let Gretchen have her. Heather needs to get over herself. Her husband needs to stop wearing the shirt with his company logo on it. Are they that desperate for work???

Tamara, Gretchen and Alexis were all terrible. And let's throw in Vicki too because she knew there would be trouble when she invited Alexis.

They new girl does not fit. She is way too young.

I haven't watched the latest episode yet, but there is no doubt that Bravo set up the whole party and made sure all the ladies were there. I don't think Tamra picked the guest list herself .

This is NOT a real reality show. That is for sure.

Exactly!! Vicki invited, Tamra said yes and Alexis said yes because they are on a show together. They have contracts and have to be in situations to film together.

No thoughts yet on the new episode... But the new girl's husband looks like the brother from Wedding Crashers. You know... The painter

Gretchen's lips look ridiculous on the ride to take Slade to the airport.

I like how NOW Tamra has a problem asserting herself. "I was caught off guard and didn't know what to say!" Yeah right. NOW you have a problem finding your voice? Give me a break.

That was the most awkward pre-dinner cocktail hour ever!

It was stupid for them to nit pick that Vicki said it was her baby but for Vicki to call her stupid was over the top.

I do feel bad for Alexis at the dinner. Vicki never should have invited her and they did gang up in her. I think she held her own well though without vein belligerent like Tamra.

I think these girls are made for each other.

Alexis and Vicki love to play the victim and Gretchen, Tamra and Heather love to make them that.
