'Real Housewives of OC' Recap: Alexis Spoils The Fun With Her Mini-Meltdown!

It was an emotional roller coaster for the ladies of the O.C.!

The cattiness was in full swing for the May 1 episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County!

Peggy Tanous gets ready to host a fancy dinner party for all her friends! Fabulous food? Check. Fabulous wine? Check. Lots of drama? Double check!

For starters, most of the men are mysteriously missing! Gretchen Rossi’s boyfriend Slade skips out on all the fun in order to “spend more time with his boys.” But the rest of the party isn’t buying his excuse. It seems like Slade’s just using his kids as a way to avoid talking about his child support issues with the whole O.C. crew!

Alexis Bellino’s other-half, Jim, also backs-out of the party last minute because of “business.” But we think there’s more to this story than Alexis is willing to spill. After all, she gets up from the table in the middle of dinner to have a mini-meltdown in the bathroom!

She later apologizes for being such a Debbie Downer. But then Alexis picks a fight with Peggy, proving once and for all that when it comes to the O.C., there’s no such thing as a drama-free party!

Meanwhile, Tamra Barney uses the big shindig as an opportunity to show-off her hot new man. Eddie certainly makes a classy entrance and good first impression on all the ladies!  But some of the other housewives get turned off (and maybe a little jealous) by all of their PDA on the dance floor.

In other Housewives news, things get heated between Vicki Gunvalson and hubby Don. The two start arguing at the dinner table about having kids, and the bickering continues through the limo ride home.

We’ll have to wait until next week’s episode to find out what happened when the two got home! But judging from the previews, the outcome looks rather bleak!
