For two seasons Vicki and Kelly have been BFFs but their friendship is tested when Vicki goes on a double date that proves to be quite complicated.
“Obviously, you’re not my friend,” Kelly tells Vicki. “You don’t know how to be a good friend.”
“I didn’t betray you!” Vicki fires back.
But the high tensions make sense given the serious personal struggles the ladies are each facing. Vicki wants more commitment from Steve, who ends up storming off in anger when Tamra tells him he should finally put a ring on his longtime girlfriend. And Tamra is dealing with husband Eddie’s ongoing health issues. “I just keep thinking about the mortality rate,” Tamra says tearfully. “I’m scared for my husband.” And her fear is merited considering he’s already undergone four surgeries.
Shannon also finds herself feuding with Kelly, even though the two arguably have the most in common. Both newly single and figuring out how to navigate the dating world while raising children and moving into new homes, the women seem to be handling post-divorce life quite differently.
“You know why divorce is expensive? Because it’s worth it.” Kelly’s seen telling a friend in a later scene.
“A lot of women don’t have to work, but when I throw the attorney thing in there, I’m like, ‘No, girl. I’m not your typical Housewife,'” says Emily, who had a falling out with Tamera after planning a baby shower for granddaughter Ava a few years back.
“I am Orange County until I open my mouth and it’s like, ‘Here I am, world!'” says Gina, who is re-evaluating the ne of her marriage given that her husband works and lives in Los Angeles during the week.
