Tamra has a meltdown, Jeana returns to preach, and the ladies head down to Texas for some southern hospitality!

The May 15 episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County started with a bang: Simon Barney’s in the slammer!

Tamra Barney calls the cops on her ex after he chucks a dog leash at her! She goes to court to file a restraining order, but Simon gets off scot-free. Her BFF, Vicki Gunvalson thinks it was a bold move, but totally sympathizes with Tamra — after all, she’s been down the same messy road of divorce in the past.

Meanwhile, former OC housewife, Jeana Keough, returns to confront Tamra about the whole situation. When the two sit down face-to-face, they get into a major blow-out (some things never change). In the end, Tamra gives Jeana a piece of her mind: stay out of my business!

In other Housewives news, the rest of the ladies hit the road for some crazy times down south! The gang loads up on lots of tequila, pecan pie and southern BBQ in Gretchen Rossi’s hometown: San Antonio, Texas!

And a southern vaca with the housewives couldn’t be complete without a little wild fun — send in the mechanical bulls! Fernanda Rocha gives it a good shot, but falls flat on her face after a few seconds. But a very tipsy Alexis Bellino holds her own, showing off an unexpected naughty side to all the ladies!

When all is said and done, perhaps it’s Peggy Tanous who puts it best: “What happens in Texas, stays in Texas.” But who is she kidding? We know all that the southern drama is coming straight back to the OC in next week’s episode!
