Minicap: RHOC


Okay, this episode was just SWELL.  And I’m not being sarcastic.  And I don’t say that very often, so if you haven’t tuned in, do so now and come back later.

Vicki and Tamra have made up pretty spectacularly, and they celebrate their first bottles of Wines by Wives arriving by… drinking wine.  Hey, they’re fun, not imaginative.  Nobody’s perfect.

Lydia decides to throw a salsa party to pay back the other women for inviting her to shitty, awkward shindigs all year long.  This precipitates a meeting between Heather and Alexis to forgo any bloodshed at the soiree.  About halfway through, Heather realizes that all she’s ever needed to do was smile, nod and allow Alexis to dumb herself into submission.  This is one of those times when the path of least resistance is the best choice.

Bryana and Ryan are about to see their fairy tale come to a crashing end as they spend one last night together before he goes off to combat training in 29 Palms for four months followed by immediate deployment to Afghanistan.  He’ll be home on weekends, but that means Bryana is stuck with Vicki all week long, listening to repeated choruses of, “But I thought we were pulling OUT of Afghanistan.”  Keep it together, Girl.

Gretchen and Slade don’t have a very good week, either, but it’s more to do with the fact that Lydia has made her final decision about who to hate on this show to ensure a second season.  P.S. It’s them, and she let’s them know it but good at the salsa party.  Then, Gretchen finds out that Tamra and Alexis have made up and Alexis is coming wedding dress shopping with them.  Gretchen looks like she’s about to cry, but I can’t tell if it’s from the news or the glitter eyeshadow that is slowly making her go blind…

Tune in tomorrow for the full recap and more deets!
