I'm new to this show. I've seen bits and pieces over the last 2 seasons. I knew who Vicki was and that's about it.

These women are so whacko---every last one of them! Actually, Lydia seems to be the one right now with her head screwed on *better*.

Gretchen seems to me to be the worst. What a mouthy, well, woman. Tamra is a nutcase. I hope this is all just about ratings and trying to make their show exciting because this really is middle school behavior from all of them.

I can't get past the way Heather talks to her crazy husband. He seems to try way too hard to be funny and fit in. She then rips him a new one and he plays dumb. As a PP said, no way would I ever go to him after seeing him on this show or seeing how they interact.

Vicki seems like a middle aged hot mess. That Brooks guy creeps me out. I know I sympathize with her daughter over not liking mom's new BF (I can't stand the *man* my mom was seeing) but the daughter's husband is over the top with the cameras and such.

Alexis...I'm not sure what to think of her. Right now, she's just a whiner and complainer to me. I did like the fact that Lydia called her on her actions. If she is going to be on National TV and proclaim her Christianity, it is good to see someone hold her accountable in some way.

Anyway, I'm sure my thoughts will evolve throughout the series...but Tamra's actions at the dinner party/blessing of the building were just nutty angry. What a hotheaded woman! And, I thought it was interesting how she remarked about Vicki around Alexis and how she acted differently. Who acted differently??? Tamra was much nicer to Vicki when they went to dinner alone than when she had Gretchen and Heather with her---they seemed to make her much more mouthy and ballsy at that dinner. Alexis went because Tamra said she could come. Alexis should have stayed home but for the show (I'm sure) and maybe for making peace she went and seemed supportive. Tamra probably would not have acted like that if her posse was not there backing her up. I think she would have been more gracious as a host.

These women seem to have no class to me.

I'm willing to bet Tamra's daughter will grow up to be a "mean girl" in school. My daughter goes to school with a girl who has developed into a mean girl. I went to high school with her mother and guess what.....she was the meanest of them all! What is she teaching her children?

So true about Tamra's daughter! I sure hope none of the kids of these women (with the exception of Vicki who has adult children) ever watch this show. Talk about NOT leading by example.

Thankfully, they have one parent to protect them. Simon refuses to allow the children on the show. I don't think, they are allowed to mention the kids (in a specific manner) either.

Tamra is toxic. I'd feel sorry for Eddie, if he wasn't a homewrecker and a backstabber. He deserves everything he gets.

Tamara has some serious anger issues. Who screams like that? I can't believe Vicki did not get up when she was told to "pick a side". Heather made a great point about how Vicki must be committed to mending the friendship by staying. I thought it was cute how Heather was trying to get her daughter to say different words in the car.

I hated that Vicki kept calling Gretchen stupid. I think it makes Vicki look ridiculous and she should know that Gretchen was just trying to get a rise out of her. Oh, and look, it worked. And it's pathetic that Gretchen said anything because she knew what Vicki meant but I understand the animosity she has towards Vicki.

I don't think Alexis is being bullied. The other ladies were trying to point out a negative characteristic which she was not receptive to hearing about and it all snow balled. It would have been better/nicer if it was done differently but this is Real Housewives & Bravo. If it was going to be all nice and sweet, it wouldn't be on TV. But the million dollar question, if Alexis really feels like a victim here, WHY COME BACK? Alexis herself said something to that effect last night but of course, had no answer. I enjoyed watching Lydia point that out to Alexis.

I think it's funny that Michael won't tell Vicki where he lives. Ryan sounded a little over the top with cameras and security but he must have had Vicki's blessing because it is her house. Brianne blogged this week - she described the living arrangement. They all agreed to x,y and z. If Vicki wants to change it, Brianne would happily move out. No grudges. She appears to be level headed so I tend to believe her and think Vicki is just agreeing with who ever she speaks with, in this instance, her brother.

Good point. I don't really like any of them. But that doesn't change my feeling that Alexis is moron for going back over and over for abuse from the other women.

Omg.... Alexis is soooo annoying! Always the victim. The way she yelled at the Lydia after she said that people kill themselves over bullying was ridiculous. "Yeah well I had to take Zanex Lydia!" Give me a break. Not even comparable.

I actually kind of like Lydia so far! Lol

Did Vicki just say she didn't agree with what Tamra did to Slade???

She was the one who hated Slade the MOST!

Vicki is a pot stirrer this season. She's taking the high road? Apparently that means being friends with people she couldn't stand before because her old ones got tired of her B.S. She's trying to be the head mean girl in her new little clique.

(Btw... I post from my phone as I watch at work so I do multiple ones! Sorry!)

Haha! Lydia says, "I can see why they don't like her."

I really like her this episode!!!

I feel a little bad that Vicki's family keep brining up Don. It's her life, she's what? In her late 40's? She's a big girl.

I also thought it was strange that Vic brought up Slade. She was one of the people who could not stand Slade and was very vocal about how much she disliked him and what she thought of him.

I think Vic has changed this season though. I think she is trying to get along with everyone and not take sides.

Tamra is flat out the mean girl and definitely has anger issues. She thinks she does absolutely nothing wrong, ever. I would never want to be her "friend" because she doesn't know how to be a friend. It's her way or the highway. I think Heather is very controlling with everyone. I actually like Alexis. I don't think she's the "dumb blonde". She's portrayed that way, but the reality is, she has been ganged up on multiple times.

I am around some mean women unfortunately (not by choice) and yes, their daughters are JUST like them.

I agree, Tamra is just nasty. All of them are just so classless the way they speak to one another and behave. It's ridiculous. Honestly they just seem so trashy. I must live a very sheltered life if THAT is how grown women live their lives.

I find it very interesting how Gretchen turned on Alexis. I'm a very loyal friend and clearly these women are not.

I saw this quote on facebook and immediately thought of the wonderful housewives of OC during their dinner party
