Welcome back to the RHOC GIF recap! At the beginning of this week's episode, we followed up with Tamra's doctor's visit from last week. She's trying out some hormone therapy because, as she said, "Women at my age start going..." Well, not according to Botox!
We also caught up with Heather who's prepping for her big hosting gig on Good Day L.A. "It's good for casting directors and producers to rememebr that I'm out here. Out here... hi!"
Now, time to get into it: Shannon's Christmas party. Tamra showed up in a revealing black one-piece, because nothing says "O, Come, All Ye Faithful" like a little cleavage.
As always, Shannon pulled out all the stops for her party, inviting a sugar sculptor who made things like this traditional Christmas...unicorn?
Vicki was also there, being her charmingly inappropriate self. She asked these two strangers if they were sleeping together. (They were not -- that guy's gay.)
It wasn't long before sh** hit the fan. Or, in Shannon's words, before the "f***ing bullsh**" hit the fan.
Lizzie attempted to play mediator as two different fights were underway. So we're clear: The first fight involved the underlying tension between Heather and Shannon. The second fight was about Heather inviting another Orange County gym (not CUT Fitness) on to Good Day L.A. during a previous hosting gig -- Heather says she had no say in the matter, Tamra seems to think otherwise.
When Lizzie suggests the ladies just talk it out, Tamra can't believe it...
She prefer the new girl just zip it.
Heather entered the room and the argument really started to unravel. Here we go...
While Tamra attempted to figure out the whole Good Day L.A. thing, Shannon stepped in to try to figure out why Heather talks down to her friends. At least we think that's what's going on...
"Touche!" Shannon said to Heather. "I'm angry myself beause apparently you told [Tamra] that she needed to pick a side." There are so many levels of fights going on right now.
Yet surprisingly, Vicki has nothing to do with any of them. And she couldn't be happier about that.
In the end, there was a bit of conflict resolution...kind of. Our take: Heather and Tamra actually really care about each other and eventually this thing will blow over. Or at least we hope so -- I don't know how many more arguments I can keep track of.
