‘Real Housewives of OC’ Recap: The Ladies Get Into A Mudslinging Mess Over Mace!

Alexis and Tamra duke it out, Gretchen puts her pups on a diet, and Peggy flaunts her new ta-tas all over the OC! The claws came out for the April 17 episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, as these sassy housewives got into a bitter cat fight -- over pepper spray!

After weeks of texting back-and-forth, Alexis Bellino and Tamra Barney finally came face-to-face about the mace incident that happened at a party a few weeks ago.

What began as a normal convo soon turned ugly as Tamra started accusing Alexis of making a mountain out a molehill out of the whole situation. The ladies got fired-up. A shouting match erupted. And in typical OC fashion, neither housewife admitted defeat. Looks like the drama’s spilling over to next week.

Things have been rocky between Vicki Gunvalson and Don lately (partly because she’s never around). So the couple tries to squeeze in a little R&R time together — at a spa! But the love fest is short-lived. When the two go out for dinner, they bicker over the small things, like what type of wine to order. And Don brings up Vicki’s workaholism, the whole convo goes downhill from there.

In other Housewives news, Gretchen Rossi complains that “all the men in her life” (aka Slade and her two dogs) are too fat! So she takes her puppies to the vet to get them on a diet. But Slade doesn’t take well to his girlfriend’s constant criticism. And he even blows up at her in the park when she refuses to stop calling him “Tubba Wubba.”

Also, Peggy Tanous debuts her boob job to the rest of the housewives. Tamra loves the new ta-tas. But the “wow” factor is a bit too much for Gretchen to handle. She complains that Peggy’s “big boobs and big bling” are blinding.

Finally, Alexis’ house is rumored to be up for foreclosure. When real estate guru, Tamra, takes one look at the pad, she says it’s “all flash and no cash.” Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens to the glitzy Bellini estate in next week’s episode!
