Tamra struts her stuff, Fernanda makes a startling confession, and Peggy preps for the perfect pool party!

The April 24 episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County started out with a big birthday surprise for Gretchen Rossi! Slade takes her on a romantic trip – to his art gallery (who knew he was such an artiste)! He makes her throw on a smock and try her hand at doodling. It’s not quite the glitzy diamond necklace she wanted. But Gretchen’s totally flattered when he pulls out the big guns: a life-size portrait of his princess!

Meanwhile, Vicki Gunvalson invites Alexis Bellino over for a little chitchat to clear the air about the whole “mace” incident from a few weeks back. Alexis forgives, but isn’t quite ready to forget. Looks like Vicki will have to prove she’s not a backstabbing businesswoman when the ladies get together for a major shindig during next week’s episode.

In other news, it’s time for an OC-style fashion show! Peggy Tanous is a natural-born hostess. Tamra Barney, on the other hand, gets a mean case of the stomach-churning butterflies before making her model debut. But she ends up rocking the runway – and even high-fives housewife frenemy, Jeana Keough, after strutting her stuff. Oh, what a boost of catwalk confidence can do for a lady!

Finally, the episode ends with a shocking confession by Fernanda Rocha! In typical kiss-and-tell fashion, Fernanda explains that the hot kiss she shared with Tamra a few weeks back was more than just a friendly peck – it was a real connection. Not sure what Tamra’s side of the story is, but we’ll soon find out what she thinks about all of this when the two reunite on next week’s episode!
