One end-of-the-season party equals lots of crazy housewives drama!

The June 5 season finale of The Real Housewives of Orange County started with a bang! We all knew it was coming, but Vicki Gunvalson announces she’s officially filed for divorce from Don. The tears come, but Vicki tries to stay strong by deciding to host an annual summer party in her backyard. Clearly when it comes to the OC, the parties — and the drama — must go on!

And boy does the drama get underway at this shindig! It all starts when Tamra Barney arrives at the party — armed with an official legal note to seek some revenge on former OC housewife Jeana Keough! When Tamra confronts her about spreading nasty divorce rumors to the press, Jeana denies it all.

But things really get heated-up when an infuriated Tamra throws her drink in Jeana’s face. This, of course, leads to a domino effect of drink-throwing and name-calling between them until Jeana finally walks out of the party with her entourage.

When the ladies finally come up for air after the crazy mêlée, Gretchen Rossi chimes in about the whole thing. She says it’s difficult to deal with friends constantly talking behind your back — something she’s had to put up with for two years! Tamra calls for a total truce with all the ladies, hoping they can put the past behind them and move forward with their friendships!

In other Housewives news, the tension between Alexis Bellino and Peggy Tanous has been brewing for a while, and it finally comes to a full boil at Vicki’s backyard bash. What starts as a little fight about lips turns into an all-out war between the gal pals over their husbands! The clash ends with a semi-believable truce. But clearly it’s going to take a lot more than that to heal these battle wounds!

Looks like we’ll just have to wait until next season to see how everything gets resolved!
