The First 'Wives Club

Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor distills all the 'Wife wisdom from Episode 6.

Apr 11, 2011

Nothing is out of bounds this season for the Orange County ladies. Seriously, no topic, no location, no task is too outrageous for these California gurls. In just this one episode boob jobs were debated, Tamra took Spain by storm, and Gretchen coordinated an elaborate anniversary celebration for her parents. What more could you want? Vicki doling out spankings in the workplace perhaps? Yep, that happened too. So let us don our traditional Spanish garb and see what we've learned from our favorite blondes this week.

Always be sure to deal with any outstanding negative issues before leaving for your vacation. Tamra wisely got over the Alexis text message drama and moved beyond it by simply deciding to bring a dildo rather than pepper spray to the next 'Wife gathering.

When visiting a foreign country, one should fully embrace the culture (see previous recap, "Being Cabonian"). Exhibit A:

I only wish they had kept those outfits on for the duration of the trip. However, an exception to the culture rule can be made when it comes to food.

Sometimes you just need a taste of home while you're traveling.
