Breast Friends Forever
In another, less contentious limo, Vicki and Brooks are reading love notes on the road to Catalina (while Tamra looks on).Tamra and Eddie share their love not through letters, but through grooming. Yes, Tamra just travels with a nose hair trimmer, which means she's ever-ready to handle this issue on the road.

Less easily to nip was the BreastGate. After discussing how Vicki and Brooks are "celibate together" Eddie and Vicki shared a little bit of a moment. Not to be outdone, Tamra just grabbed Brooks hand and made some memories on her chest. This wasn't really Eddie's favorite part of the evening. . .

Next week we found out the fallout Brooks getting fresh and the ladies get arty (and maybe a little b---hy). I'll be eating from my bag of crawfish in anticipation until then.

I see some of the Cajun's are up in arms about Vicki's CAJUN cuisine. I guess I would be too, if that was my heritage, however, I'm not CAJUN, I'm CREOLE, and like many Creole's my heritage didn't stem from Louisianna, but South Carolina, which makes my family Gullah or given the nature in which the term is used GEECHIE. We have adopted some AUTHENTIC Cajun cuisine, and vice-verse. I also see that many are correcting Vickieis implication that she's been traveling to the South, particularly Mississipi and began learning about their "cuisine". I don't think she meant that she got the idea of Cajun cuisine FROM Mississipi, but probably from the surrounding Southern states. It was said that tomato based dishes a primarily Creole, that is NOT necessarily true. For the most part it is, but not a rule. I have seen many people serve boiled crawfish and shrimp in a bag, however the comments ring true in that NO self respecting Cajun would serve it that way. There ARE many Cajuns (and Creoles) in Mississippi, particular around the Mississipi Delta which is a stones throw from Louisianna. "Laissez le Bon temp rouler" = Let the good times roll

Vicky's dinner party was a lovely gesture - the ladies were rude. Good riddance to Peggy, I don't think she's suitable for reality TV - certainly not emotionally mature enough to handle it.

I thought the bags just thrown on the table looked to trashy. I dont blame the ladies for not knowing what was going on, Vicky should have told them what was coming and how it was to be served. Thats just me talking though

Uh-huh...it's not craYfish...it's crawfish and it's never served in a plastic bag with shrimp. Crawfish is has a strong flavor...that's why it's boiled with corn and potatoes. It's a travesty to serve it with gloves and a bib, too. bromo is right, it's dumped on the table on newspaper or in a beer flat. At restaurants they get a little fancier and serve it in a round plastic platter. BeeTeeDub...Mississippians aren't Cajun, so I don't know where Vicki got the idea that Mississippi + Food = Cajun "Cuisine". I'm a little upset at the misinformation, but y'all come to New Orleans and we'll show ya a good time and you'll leave with a full belly and a big smile on your face.

How about putting the boil on a platter or bowl? Good grief! The wives were party-poopers and rude. You takr a little on your plate and express pleasure and then move it around if you do not want it. No need to insult the hostess and the chef.

I'm a Cajun girl through and through and I find it sad that so many people put some seasoning in something and call it Cajun or watch a few episodes of "Swamp People" and think they know what our culture is about. First, Vicki stated she was embracing Brooks culture of being from Mississippi by serving Cajun food. For the record Cajun culture does not come from Mississippi it comes from a place called Louisiana more specifically Acadaina a small section of Louisiana. Second, true Cajun gumbo is not served with Fritos, tomatoes, large chucks of okra or any ridiculous stuff like that. If something is tomato based or has such things as tomato chunks in it, it is Creole based which is a total different culture than Cajun. Down here in our parts...lol..we pride ourselves with being hardworking, family-oriented, living a simple but fun joyful life. I hope that's what people learn from these Louisiana based shows.

I agree with Nedzaj! I was surprised these girls have never experienced some sort of seafood boil! I'm sure these girls have no problem putting a bib on in a fancy restaurant for some lobster, but they probably have it fed to them so they don't get their pretty nails dirty. Here in WA state we crab for dungenous and we enjoy trying new ways of serving it. My husband and I have served up a tasty crab boil in our backyard for our neighbors and friends, and they all enjoyed it, no snide remarks here, only gratefulness for a new tasty experience. (though, they should have dumped it out of the bag and onto the table). If you ever find yourself at a Chinese restaurant that serves black bean dungenous crab, I highly recommend it! It's messy like the boil, but your taste buds will be extremely happy!

Another episode where Tamra is ridiculous, cannot believe she put Brooks' hand on her breast-idiot!!! But, she needs to be the center of attention all the time. Her being nice to Gretchen will not last and Gretchen best keep her at arms length. Love Gretchen's shoot; she's the perfect housewife to pose nude. Last, we love crawfish but I would never serve them to friends for their first time and especially in that type of vessel-crazy!

Bravo to bravo for letting Peggy go, she is toxic, mean, jealous and pathetic. It is really strange how obsessed she is with Alexis......if you got rid of Tamra it would be a much better show. The show used to be a good show before trashy tamra came on.

"That S--t Crayfish" is the best title for a blog yet.

Can I give big ups to the OC Wives for actually blogging?! Thank you. Take a lesson, Atlanta, Kim Richards, and Taylor.

Considering down here in the Southland we just dump the boil on the tabletop with some newspaper, the ladies ought to be glad they got a bag. Someone should have not been so pretentious and just dug in, the rest would have followed and fun could have been had by all. But Vicki forgot the beer. You have to have beer at a crawfish boil.

How can you people be so out of touch with Cajun food? You should be ashamed of yourselves. The flavors seal when you place the shellfish inside the plastic bag!!!!! Maybe you should watch Food Network in between Bravo shows.....

Isn't everything about Gretchen cute? Everything she owns is pink, but not in a Lisa Vanderpump way, in a cute way.

Serving a mushy crawfish mess in a plastic bag??? YUCK!
