A Slippery Slope
And before the girls could have their apres ski hot cocoa, Tamra revealed what she had heard through the grapevine about Vicki's "personal, sexual" past. As you would imagine, she did not take this knowledge lying down -- first bringing up her grievance to Gretchen.
Whoa to Vicki saying she and Donn did cheat on each other, but before you can even process that, Lauri skis up, and all icy hell breaks loose.
So that went well. You'll have to wait until next week to see if Lauri, the "piece of trash" according to Vicki, comes to dinner despite Vicki uninviting here. What did you think of Slope-gate? Who was in the right? Or did you like Lydia go make snow angels during the drama? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
I hope Bravo keeps Lauri on the show and cans Vicki. Vicki is getting old and tiresome and we are all sick of her games. At least Lauri can bring something different like not being afraid of Vicki the bully.
Vicki's a screecher trying to defend her reputation, based on things said about her by Gretchen, Lauri, oh and her friend Tamra! Heathers playing the role of her life on OC by acting like a snobbish brat! Tamra put on a white fairy wedding gown, and now is absolved of all of her sins! Gretchen has become a barbie doll! It's really such a shame these women have let this show go in this direction! BH & NY housewives have careers, charitable events, sophisticated parties in their homes.... I don't think, if I ever ran into an OC housewive I'd ever ask for an autograph, but I would, however get closer to see how much makeup they have on, or how bleached their hair really is! Backstabbing, meaness, envy, manipulation, on and on..........
I pity Lauri. I believe she is one very unhappy woman and as the saying goes, misery loves company. She clearly has a vindetta against Vicki who has not said one nasty thing about Lauri and even was cordial and gracious to her. The oh so happy marriage to George is now questionable to me. Hmmmmm, wonder what the former mother in law confided anout George? When people are so deliriously happy, they don't make waves of nastiness. Lauri needs to be put in her place and then gone! Lydia on the other hand, seems to be a good example of someone who is very happy in her life and in her skin. Love her! It will take more than Lauri's lies or half truths to get Vicki down. WooHoo Vicki! Alexis has become a darling of the housewives and I hope she stays true to herself. Tamara has shown much growth and maturity this season that I actually find myself not only liking her, but agreeing with her. Heather is irritating with what comes across as a superior attitude and Gretchen, who use to be my favorite, has now become the mean girl who should be put in her place and then be gone with Lauri into the sunset.
You know what bothers me the most is your ridiculous comments about Canada. Oh the housewives are in Canada, there must be maple syrup. Americans again stereotyping Canada. It's so old.
I can't help but wonder what's missing in Lauri's life that has her back on here gunning for Vicki. I can't stand the passive-aggressive nonsense. "Breaking" the news to Vicki about Brookes. Dropping insinuations about a threesome, fully aware of the assumptions and implications. She sounded ridiculous when she then tried to qualify her statements with "I NEVER said it was sexual... as far as I could tell everyone had clothes on..." If I were her I'd tone it down because George doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who would appreciate his wife drawing this type of attention.
The more painful it is to watch the more people watch. I find the whole show just hilarious. To see these women act so childish is just too much, but I can't stop watching.
I'm afraid this show is becoming too painful to watch. It's awkward watching a woman so proud of her business skills screaming hysterically on the slopes. After the underhandedness of the Mexico trip...
No, women being so mean to one another is not entertaining
I also think it is time for Vicki to leave the show. She has not changed from year 1. I thought Gretchen looked so adorable but of course, jealous Vicki had to put her down AGAIN. I am so glad Karma is finally knocking on Vicki's door. It 's about time. Shame on Tamra for being a tattle-tale. Gretchen asked her not to say anything to Vicki but I believe Tamra wants to be just like Vicki.
I don't see how Gretchen gets the blame from Vicki. Lauri should have never told Gretchen anything and it turns out the whole threesome was about nothing. Tamra should have kept her big mouth shut. Why was no one seemingly mad at Tamra?
I think it's time for Vicki to leave the show .... From a woman her age it would be nice to see her portray characteristics of a grown up as opposed to a high-school bully that should have graduated 30 years ago.
The most pathetic part of this ski trip was when Lauri said to Gretchen, I told you something in private & you betrayed my trust! Really??? When they were having that conversation the cameras were rolling! Vicki was so mad she was hysterical! Watching Andy Cohen last night was even funnier because they edited the whole scene with eye lasers & green lightning....it was so fitting! Great episode!
Still showing how jealous she is of Gretchen, the first words out of Vicki's mouth was a nasty comment about Gretchen's hat looking like a q-tip! Well, I think Gretchen looked adorable, and Vicki, as, always, looked like h#$@!!!
Your right, that was interesting and boring! Notice all the people in the background stopping to listen and watch! Waiting for a 'cat' fight? Now that would have been something to watch! Haven't watched the episode yet and after reading about it why bother, it is just a repeat of the same old stuff !
OMG every season Vicki becomes more and more disconnected with what she has said and being responsible for it. Own it, yes Vicki you do start shite and you do spread malicious gossip and you are far from perfect, so why is it okay for you and not anyone else. It is so frustrating, and why does she have to yell. It seems the guiltier she is the louder she has to scream. Screaming doesnt make it true, just makes you look ridiculous. And I used to really like her, now she is believing her own pr.
Sorry, I must make one more statement. It's NEVER cool to put two people on the spot like they did Vicki, and Lydia's uncle. It creates an uncomfortable atmosphere, and way too much "awkwardness."
I think that Vicky screams the loudest when she has the most to hide. She is also always pointing the finger at others in order to "deflect" the attention from herself. I myself would just appreciate a little less screaming and a little more honesty out of the old bat. As far as anybody else in the group being a "piece of trash"; take a look in the mirror honey!
What was funny about "Slope-gate" was the fact that Vicki once again blew an opportunity to do the right thing and act like a "classy lady" in her reaction to "threesome" gossip. Her hysterical reaction makes it appear as if there may some truth to it. If she would simply and calmly explain that she and her friends had drank too much and fell asleep watching a movie or whatever innocent scenario it was and then calmly said directly to Laurie that she could perhaps see how someone might get the wrong impression from a quick glimpse of the scene but that she never expected that someone she trusted and believed was a friend could/would exploit said innocent scene and twist into something as sordid and slanderous as Laurie has done. If she would just for once act like an intelligent and reasonable, mature, adult woman she might finally get the respect that she thinks she is due.
Lauri must be unhappy or why would she come back and start trouble this season was headed in a nice direction with everyone trying to take responsibility for their faults and get along
so, am I confused? Isn't Grethen truthful when she says that she was called to read on Friday for a part?
I just loved this show and the wonderful trip you had planned. You are a breath of fresh air and you do have the pixie dust in you. You are so darling. I am sorry that Tamara chose to tell Vicki about what Laurie said and I am sorry that Heather chose to embarrass Gretchen and Alexis. I am protective over Gretchen because of how hurt she was when Jeff passed away. I adore Laurie and I hope she comes back on the show. Whistler resort was so beautiful and it was so awesome that you created a great skiing, snowboarding adventure for everyone. Much luck and succcess on the show. I loved the bling swarovski bible that Alexis gifted you with. Deb
Yes - almost as ridiculous as Lydia's comment that Americans don't realize there's countries outside of the United States......Canadians stereotyping Americans....it's so old.....
watch the episodes again before you make more stupid comments. Lori did not "break any news" to Vicki, watch it and see how Vicki pushed for the information and Lori kept heisitating and offered to do so in a more private setting. Also, Lori did not say a "threesome" that was Gretchen. Pay attention before making comments, you sound like another Vicki who never gets her facts right either.
@njmomof3 Well, as she mentioned on "watch what happens live," all of her kiddos are grown up, and Andy Cohen has asked her back every single year since she's left the show. She has more time, and said "yes" to Andy this time. As far as a vendetta against Vicki goes----maybe so. Vicki has done some sneaky, nasty, back-biting things to Lauri in the past. Ever heard of; what goes around, comes around? Two wrongs don't make a right, but it does make for fun TV.
"biggest hypocrite"....lol lol lol so there is now a measuring stick for hypocrites....????? All of these ladies are hypocrites. They all say one thing and do something else. They all accuse each other over hearsay and it turns out they have done the same thing or something similar. A hypocrite is a hypocrite whether it's a one time thing or habitual. Its silly when people cling to a word as if no one has ever heard her called that and we hear it for eternity. What's worse being a hypocrite or two faced and backstabbing ?? Are they equally as bad and cancel each other out ???
But more important...who the hell cares anyway. The show is fun and we are watching hypocrites and all.
The more she is lying or wrong the louder she screams! Can you imagine being one of her clients and filing a claim!!
@bevgal I agree about Tamra, she is the one starting all the trouble and no one has caught on, talking behind eveyrones back and starting the turmoil.
@ocdoll I know! I so agree!!
Lauri also told Tamara at the Salsa Party. I think when Lauri said that she did not know Tamara was the one that brought it up. Just my guess? It blows my mind that Tamara was told this by Lauri and says Gretchen told her, but leaves out Lauri told her too. She did not defend Vicki to Lauri either...
@Pete333 Vicki behaves like a high school "mean girl." Just like Lauri called out for being last episode. At her age, she absolutely needs to get a grip, grow up, gain some confidence, and get therapy. Gretchen is becoming the "whipping boy, or girl" once again. Shame on Tamara too. Not nice on the inside. Her and Vicki are two peas in a pod. But, it does make for fun tv, which is what it's all about I guess.
I think it would be cool to have a "fan reunion" and ask the housewives to sit in front of fans or show watchers and take it from them. I would like to see how Vicki would handle that one.....she would get up and walk off I am sure.
She's over-stayed her welcome. It's time for her to go.
Nicely put. Vicki likes the attention too much to have handled it more maturely. Her yelling and screaming gives her the opportunity to get that attention she so desires. It sure isn't about class or maturity.
Yes, but she "stole" Heather's moment so she MUST be punished. hahaha
Gretchen can't catch a break this season from the other woman. It is too bad because she is the best of this sorry bunch.
@kiki16 HECK NO!!!
@Lhaywood You are so right. Silly me. Thinking Laurie was implying a threesome when she kept telling the story that she caught Vicki in bed with another woman...and a man. Clearly she was just making the point that Vicki has some very close friends.
You're right! I forgot about the salsa party! That's twice she said it in front of the cameras! I'm not surprised by Tamra's actions, she's just nasty this season.
Gretchen did look cute ... but did you notice how her fluffy hat got all clumped up when it got wet?
