Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: The Dubrows Take Down The Beadors [Season Finale]

It’s the season  finale and you know what that means! Bravo’s producer monkeys plan to keep the editing monkeys busy by forcing people who basically hate each other to have dinner together where all hell breaks loose. Let the bullcrap fly, folks! Speaking of bull, we begin tonight’s ep with Eddie and Tamra cooking dinner as she blames everyone but herself for the fallout in Bali. Heather calls and then supports Tamra’s notion of evil Shannon (who is apparently less evil than evil Lizzie – but just barely). Heather tells her that Shannon told Vicki on the plane to “be strong” and not give in to Tamra. It confirms for both women that Shannon is the reason they didn’t get along for a while – Shannon is the shit stirrer. Vicki should have saved the dumb and dumber titles for these two. Shannon is their problem?

RHOC

It’s not that Vicki and Tamra were freezing Heather out at the beginning of the season. It wasn’t that Tamra was trashing Heather to Shannon – who had not one nasty word to say. It’s not the stick up the backside comment that Tamra made when everyone was at dinner and Tamara didn’t know Heather was eavesdropping.  Nope, it’s Shannon. Despite the fact that Tamra promised we wouldn’t have to see her face again, she’s planning to attend Vicki’s party. She feels she has to prove everyone wrong. At the same time, Shannon is reporting a change in her marriage. The couple sleeps in the same bed and they are happy together. Shannon, sadly and foolishly, thinks that she is on the road to a future friendship with Heather and that things are looking up for the group. She thinks that everyone will get along, now, and that the dinner will be fun. The Beadors are adorable, and probably shouldn’t be allowed to run free without supervision.  They’re not ready for the likes of Tamra and Heather.

RHOC

Vicki is getting ready for her party, “Vicki style.” Frenetic movement, yelling at the staff – who are doing an amazing job, general chaos. Who would or could expect any less from her? Everything is Bali themed and beautiful. Vicki says that she’s tempted to tell the caterers “no sharp knives?” She concludes “playfully terrorizing” the planners to get them to hurry up, telling them they have another hour until all of the bitches arrive <– Yup, she said that.

RHOC

Christian does his real house husband duty of devotion and believes his wife’s version of the Bali blowout story. Since I agree with Lizzie, Christian appears to be a very bright man when he says he gets the impression that Tamra is at the center of a lot of conflict in the group. In a TH, Lizzie talks about the signs of sociopathy she sees in Tamra, noting the lack of remorse and making up lies.  You just know the reunion is going to be explosive.

Terry finds Heather unbelievably beautiful and hot. She jokes that they should turn the car around. I almost wondered who wrote their script until Dr. Dubrow sticks his tongue to his lips… Not a pretty sight. You can’t script that kind of ick. Heather wants to know how Terry plans to handle David. I’m trying to figure out why it’s taken Terry three months to become disgusted by David’s comments. As the Dubrows work on their plan of attack, the hopeful Beadors are playful as David tries to help get Shannon into her dress, she jokes that her dress is so tight she’ll have to lay down to eat dinner.

Brooks and Vicki talk about Tamra, who told Vicki, the night before, that she gossiped about Brooks to help the ladies understand why he didn’t want to be around them.  Vicki says she told Tamra that it didn’t give her cause to trash him to the other women. Vicki says in a TH that she knows that she should have let Tamra go, years ago, but they have a magnetic force – or that she’s possibly a glutton for punishment. Are we all in for the latter explanation? She chalks it up to being a forgiving person.  I dunno… she sat Brooks next to Tamra for the dinner – is he hoping he gives Tamballs a piece of his mind?

The guests arrive. David apologizes when he sees the Dubrows. The couple twist the stick up the bum they’re both riding – for good measure. They make faces, but don’t really accept the apology. The producers and editors are having a FIELD DAY with the Dubrows!  They show David’s comment  (you know, the one comment that offended him so badly that it took Terry three months to go off the deep end). That terrible, terrible, awful comment was said in front of their children and Terry’s 80 year old mother. WELL… except that David’s “spread your legs and get up on that bull” was immediately followed up by Eddie screaming “Show us how you ride Terry.” That is apparently less offensive in the Dubrow household.  No attack on Eddie.

RHOC

Danielle and Joe are there. We hear almost nothing from them. Heather thinks Shannon’s sudden friendship is Bali was calculated (vain, much?) since Shannon didn’t like her before. Vicki tries to explain to Heather that Shannon didn’t have a problem with her – she thought Heather didn’t like her. Vicki gets a dig in when she catches Tamra gossiping with Danielle when Tamballs claims, to Vicki, she’s afraid of her. Vicki walks by telling her to, basically, stop being silly, and be happy she was invited. They sit down to dinner. Tamra walks off when Brooks gets up and tries to make amends with him.  She does remind him she and Vicki never fought until he came along.  Tactful. The dinner overall seems to be going well until Tamra wants Lizzie to admit what she said about her husband. Vicki is horrified that Tamara would try to ruin her party. She wants Tamra to quit starting crap. Just as the LizzieTamra fight dies down, Terry starts slamming David for his weak, 3 months late  apology. Heather brings up the “yelling at me” accusation. Terry calls David, drunk, stupid, or both and calls him a penis. Heather calls Shannon “pugilistic” and Terry insults David more.

RHOC

Terry says that being in construction makes David think he can say whatever he wants to women. Christian then reminds Terry that he was in construction as well. Terry says it’s great to be in construction and then continues to berate DavidVicki notes that the uptight condescending Dubrows have learned nothing from the earlier discussions, when Heather in particular, was told how she attacks others and tries to belittle them. When David jokes that he’ll have to go home and look up the insults they hurled at him, Heather says she’ll buy him a thesaurus… I think it’s was Tamra’s cue to reconsider her alliances. While Heather is condescending, Tamra is in a TH saying she’s going to try to make her amends for her betrayal of Shannon. THIS after she denied doing anything wrong during the dinner party. I think seeing Heather kick her bitchiness up in high gear reminds Tamra what’s waiting for her when Shannon and Lizzie are fully done with her.

RHOC

Heather, if you care, says in a TH that she wishes they could all just accept each other’s imperfections. I am done. Is she for real? I hope she’s too busy to come back next season. Her “kumbayba” TH must be a save since Shannon’s comments at the dinner party made Heather’s ratchet rage look worse. Shannon said she left all of that other stuff in Bali and has no need to keep fighting. She is moving forward. At the end, they’re all smiling and laughing as they watch a slideshow from the trip. In the end we find out the Beadors want a simpler life and plan to downsize (hopefully to a home further away from the Dubrows).  Christian and Lizzie are planning to have a baby in the near future. 

We see Ryan making his long overdue (imo) escape from the OC. Brianna and her family are packed and moving. The show ends on a fun note. The women talk about the things they’ve said that were offensive – and I love that Vicki apologizes to the people of Oklahoma for her comments… she just oughta!

Previews of the reunion look explosive.  Whatever you do, don’t miss it. I sure won’t!

    Great recap Norrth! I thank-you!

    The whole episode felt very staged to me. I mean, here comes the finale (always at Vicki’s house) and, of course, the fireworks begin. From Tamra’s talk with Brooks, to Terry’s uncharacteristic blow-up, not much rang true to me. These things are becoming the new soap opera’s of our time and I’m quickly losing interest. JMO.

    Have a good day everyone! 🙂

    • Good morning Nan! 🙂

      These women need to go back to their gated communities and stay there. Heather and Terry’s behavior at Vicki’s dinner party was beyond classless for me. And the nerve of Trashy Tammi Sue to play victim in a mess she created. I felt horrible for Shannon and David. They did not deserve that attack.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi nan! I too thought the dinner was staged. However, I don’t think Terry’s “tantrum” was staged. I’m so glad David held his composure and dealt with Terry with a grain of salt.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        The dinner was definitely staged and Heather and Terry wore their acting caps to dinner. They were certainly putting on a show.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Yes David was brilliant…with his fine azz.

      • Mustang

        I find him much more likeable on Botched than here. He comes off whiny and annoying here. Since when did it become so much about the husbands anyway? C’mon Bravo, enough with the Y chromosomes.

        • Marsbars09

          Agreed, the subject of the show has really shifted towards the men.

    • Mustang

      Of course it was staged. As stated, these ppl would never socialize if not for financial gain. Plain as the reconstructed, reconfigured nose on your filled, smoothed, botoxed face.

    • Norrth

      There is now always some end of the season gathering – as if these women aren’t sick of each other by then. I wish they would just let them go their own way. It does feel a little too staged.

  • Bravolicious

    I’ve always liked the Dubrows but this was a tough season for them. Their stuck up, snobby attitude was front and center. They owe the Beadorrs a huge apology for how they have treated them and I’ll bet its more graciously received then the sincere apology David gave them.

    • nan/4

      According to reports Heather “manned-up” at the reunion, and admitted all of their wrongdoings, while others didn’t do the same, unfortunately. I’ll guess we’ll soon find out!

      • I heard a rumor that they all band together against evil Tammy Sue. I hope that’s true.

        • Bravolicious

          Fantastic! Tamra has gone out of her way every single reunion to target someone and unleash her nastiest mean girl tenancies on them. So happy she’s in the hot seat this year because no one is more deserving then her

        • RonnieIsBack

          Me too…

        • twifan2

          I’ll watch that! 🙂

      • Bravolicious

        I’m so happy to hear that. The Dubrows are better than that and I’m glad they admitted they were wrong

      • RealitytvJunkie

        Thanks for the scoop. After the backlash, she received on social media, she she had no choice but to own up to her crude behaviors.

      • Norrth

        I hope that’s true. I don’t think Heather was this bad before. As the old saying goes, she fell in with a bad crowd (Tamra!).

      • Tweetie

        I just don’t believe that. She cant ever even give an apology without equivocating it in some way. I will never believe there’s a sorry bone in her bony body.

        • nan/4

          Alrighty then! Different strokes for different folks. Works for me. 😉

          Nice to meet you Tweetie! 🙂

      • Tweetie

        No offense to you, Nan/4, I just do not trust Heather or Terry at all! They always SAY everything is fine, and then Heather turns around and says “but you screamed at me,” yet one more time & Terry suddenly decides he’s mad as hell about something that happened 3 months ago while he was laughing his butt off! NO TRUST here!!

    • Hi Bravolicious! I couldn’t agree more. The Doo-doo-brows really showed their hoity-toity asses this season.

      • Marsbars09

        Good morning Doc!
        I’ve always thought the Dubrows were above such bad manners. I guess they proved us all wrong!

        • They sure fooled us because they are ratchet.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        Lol. I agree.

      • nan/4

        Aww…I like them. He was obnoxious, for sure, but the remark was totally off base, and David should have apologized a LONG time ago. Why wait until the finale? That’s why I think the producers “suggest” what happens on these shows. I’m SURE that I’m alone here, but it just how I feel.

        • The producers are heavily involved, that’s for sure. But I don’t feel Terry’s disgusting LOUD, rude, crude outburst at a dinner party no less was an appropriate response to David’s comments especially when Eddie made an equally obnoxious comment.

        • Norrth

          I got the feeling that neither Shannon nor David remembered the comment. Shannon was stunned when Heather confronted her with it and didn’t remember it. David was feeling no pain so I can believe he’d forgotten it too. I’m just glad they didn’t give the “IF I offended you” apology. I hate those.

          • RonnieIsBack

            Terry didn’t remember it either..he said on WWHL that he was reminded of it and then he became mad..after he saw the episode it was nothing bad said and he felt foolish to go off like he did. Damage control..perhaps..but at least his bitchazz admitted it.

        • Chloe

          Obnoxious doesn’t begin to describe the Dubrow’s behavior. I don’t know if their motivation for being so incredibly pugilistic in their own right was an attempt to bring attention to Terry’s show on E!, “Botched.” Considering how high-class they consider themselves, I was appalled that he participated in that project. Porn stars and others of the like looking to enlarge and tighten unmentionable parts of their bodies to ill-advised proportions — that alone began to turn me off to him. Heather’s treatment of Shannon and her over-exaggerated recall of their X-mas party confrontation, as well as her participation in the vicious gossip about the Beador’s marriage completely degraded my opinion of her. Heather used to be a favorite — no more. Shannon and Lizzie took her place; of course the OG will forever be my standard of the OC!

          • nan/4

            I respect everyone’s opinion here even if I disagree. No one is perfect, and IMO, there was wrong on both sides. You obviously have a very negative opinion of the Dubrow’s, including his work on Botched. I’ve seen both of the doctors help so many people who were in terrible distress. I suppose it’s the “glass half empty or half full ” debate. Whatever the case might be, I do respect your right to feel however you do, and I hope that you’ll respect mine.

            Be well Chloe!

        • Bluerskies

          And what about Tamara’s husband’s comment?? Was that off base and crude, too?

    • Marsbars09

      True dat!

    • RonnieIsBack

      I’m over the DuBorings…they showed their plastic azzes that episode.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Great recap, Norrth. I’m going to have to agree with Lizzie, Tamra is a sociopath. She is a nonviolent one, but she causes great pain and destruction with her manipulation of people’s lives. She needs mental help, not a reality show.

    • Marsbars09

      ITA. The end of last night’s episode depicted she has a lot of stress in her REAL life.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        I also think her marriage is on the rocks.

        • Marsbars09

          I wouldn’t be surprised by that either.

    • nan/4

      And, she a TERRIBLE actress. She’s really got to work on crying somes tears!!!!

      • RealitytvJunkie

        No surprise she hasn’t made a huge success in Hollywood.

  • Marsbars09

    The Dubrows’ really showed who they were last night. I especially don’t think it was a good look for Terry since he has his own reality show with Dr. Nassif.
    I had no idea how elitist and snobbish the Dubrows’ truly are. Their primary concern was always to be head and shoulders financially above the rest of the cast. Well, they can’t unring that bell!

    • Morning sunshine! 🙂

      I was thinking the same thing about Terry and his new show. He really behaved unprofessionally. I feel he’s overcompensating for not “defending” his wife last season. Like the title of the recap states, “The Dubrows Take Down the The Beadors,” and that’s exactly what it felt like….a planned take down!

      • Bravolicious

        An attempted “take down” to be sure, but their fanbase took a hit from it and the Beadors gained fans. It was not their finest moment

      • Marsbars09

        Terry’s tirade against David reminded me of when Greg from RHOA decided to grow a spine and defend Nene after Peter confronted her about her bad behavior at the masquerade charity ball. I think Heather was behind Terry’s sudden “defense” of her honor.

        • Yes!!!! Good comparison. Terry’s a wuss..Heather has totally emasculated him!

          • RonnieIsBack

            His balls are in her Chanel clutch..(the pink one natch)

          • Bwhahahaha!!!!!!!

        • RonnieIsBack

          Yassssss.

      • Norrth

        The funny thing is that “angry” Terry was cordial to the Beadors every other time he saw them. I agree it was a planned take down. I thought what Eddie said, in front of the children, was worse.

        • Thank you…Exactly! Glad you see it too.

    • Norrth

      It was just awful to hear them talk down to the Dubrows like that. Shannon and David showed them, I think, what “class” looks like. Heather making that sneering face at David was comical and sad. I don’t believe she practiced that one in the mirror, but should have.

      • Chloe

        Terry showed he is so jealous of David. He had to go to street level and call him a penis. David gave a heartfelt apology and Terry went Nuts. (NO harsh words about Eddie’s comment) He cut his profession down, I can not believe he didn’t go further. Terry Dubrow is a real sad person

    • Chloe

      ITA. I was pretty disgusted that Heather and Terry could not accept the apology. It was sincere. I knew Heather would say it didn’t feel sincere.

  • Bravolicious

    This is probably a stupid question, but who is Danielle and why was she on every episode and invited to every event? She brought absolutely nothing to the table other than her hubby was kinda cute

    • Mustang

      I was wondering that myself. I’m guess she’s a “friend of”? She appears to be mute in most eps. Weird.

    • Lorn

      Welcome to the biggest conundrum facing the OC. Who the heck is Danielle?

  • Mustang

    As earlier hinted, I doubt Lizzy will be back. She really appeared to have checked out during this episode. She seems rightfully over all of the juvenile messiness that RHOC has become.

    • Marsbars09

      She didn’t seem to be quite a good fit to me for the show anyway.

    • I like Lizzie and I really hope she comes back. She’s not afraid to take on Tammy Sue and her bs.

      • italiano bambino

        I hope so too. She’s been the only who didn’t back down on the Witch of the Oc

    • Norrth

      I got the same feeling. Terry’s attack on “construction workers” was below the belt. I wonder if Lizzie thought about what the Dubrows thought of her husband in all this time. Christian and Lizzie seem too normal for this group. Shannon and David are sweet, in my book, but they are just eccentric enough to fit in.

  • Norrth

    Am I the only one who wonders if Lizzie is over Heather? Last night was not a good look for the Dubrows and I think Lizzie can now see Tamra’s influence on Heather – who isn’t as sophisticated and above the fray as Lizzie must have originally thought.

    • Marsbars09

      I don’t think Lizzie is a good fit for the cast. Doc mentioned that Lizzie is too “normal” for this bunch.

      • Norrth

        So dead on, she is – especially when she commented that they were all fighting over petty stuff. I still wish she would stay to keep Tamra in line.

        • RonnieIsBack

          Me too. She has too..I will tweet her to stay lol.

        • equinox2009

          I hoping Trampa doesn’t come back! Didn’t she quit or was fired? Hope Heather is next

  • Chloe

    Great recap Norrth. I think David and Shannon handled themselves very well considering what Terry spewed. David is self made, and smokin’ hot-I’d take him over Terry ANY day!

    • RonnieIsBack

      Mee too! Terry knows this…even Paul tells him constantly that bascially he has a face (and a big azz nose) only a mudder can love…lol

      • Marsbars09

        Damn!

      • Oh Snap! AHAHAHAHA!

      • Lorn

        Terry looks like Quagmire from Family Guy.

        • Tweetie

          Also, spitting image of Mr. Magoo! Dumb as he was too.

  • Lip service

    When you mix booze with a bucking bronco that is normally for the wild bar crowd, what did they expect? Since Tamra was injured on the bull ride, Terry certainly was not going to mention Eddy’s rude comments, I bet Terry and Heather shook in those cowboy boots hoping Mr and Mrs judge wouldn’t file a lawsuit, which would be easy to do, all on tape! Just like at other community affairs, keeping the booze in an area where children are not allowed would be recommended. Terry and Heather asked for it the way they set it up! How about a kiddie land, pony ride, bounce house, off to the side with attendants to entertain the children and elderly. No more “Botched” for me after the way Terry treated David, and by the way, all the men in my family are in the construction business!

    • I’m amazed how utterly offended Terry was about David’s comment but made no case against Eddie saying “Show us how you ride Terry!” Was that somehow less offensive because it was certainly more descriptive.

  • Jennymckitty

    The real story…..the story I want to know…is what happened to Danielle this season. I don’t think that her part could be pared down this much for simply being boring. She was present at almost every event and her lines that weren’t edited out were only ones that were essential for the story line. The whole thing is odd. A commenter on another site stated that she and her husband issued a press release stating he was not gay after the filming ended. I wonder if there is some legal wrangling going on with them and Bravo. To me, this is more interesting than the manufactured drama that Bravo is trying to create.

    • Danielle is a ghost. Notice her fair skin and wig-like hair. She’s a figment of our imagination.

      • Jennymckitty

        If Bravo could have afforded it, they would have CGIed her out and replaced her with a Labradoodle. Now ere are forced to watch her appear and disappear. I am waiting for someone to say, “I see dead people.”

        • Bwahahaha! This comment is too funny but logical at the same time. Love it.

  • Jennymckitty

    I went to The Brownstone yesterday before lunch at Rutters…home of the ripper dog. I’m glad that we went there during daytime. The drive to it was a little sketchy. It wasn’t opened but I took a few pics of the exterior which is lovely. The area around it, not so much. The website doesn’t indicate that they are open for dinner. It only mentions catering and party rental. There were workers busy in the back loading area. No Manzo sittings. Paterson wasn’t what I imagined it to be…at least the areas where we drove. Now I’m going to have to closely watch Manzoed with Children…camera angles would have to be just right.

    • Awesome! Thanks for the comprehensive reporting. I could have told ya, Paterson is sketchy. There are good parts and downright ghetto high crime areas as well. I think the reason Al has the business in that area is the real estate is cheap compared nice areas in Jersey.

      • Jennymckitty

        I was surprised at the condition of the town. The towns around it seem very nice…at least where we drove.

        • I’ve only seen the bad areas of Paterson maybe 2x never had a reason to ever go back. That place is a dump and full of crime.

          • twifan2

            They sort of look a bit like Utica-imo.

    • Marsbars09

      Thanks for the report Jenny! Is Paterson run down or something?

      • Jennymckitty

        Yes. I feel safe driving throughout DC but there are some areas I won’t drive at night. Driving through Paterson was similar to that.

  • twifan2

    Hi Hi Everybody! 🙂

    Anyone have a ‘new’ set up on their Comment Notifications page?
    The one you look at when you click on the ‘bubble’ next to your name at the top of a thread.

  • twifan2

    Excellent recap Norrth! Loved it! Can’t wait to see what you do to the Reunion shows! 🙂

    I don’t think Ryan will be gone for too long.

    • Norrth

      I have no doubt this kid loves his mom, but in his shoes I would have to wonder if was ill served and ill advised by being on the show. After mommy dearest had that dinner party, he was nicknamed “Rapey-eyed Ryan” for years. It was horrible and he has to be aware it was going on. As a mom, it broke my heart to see that happen. I would never have let me son try to follow a drunken woman into a bathroom. I hope he stays away and is very happy.

  • italiano bambino

    Looking at Heather and terry self destroyed was priceless. David had to sit and watch this two rant make themselves complete ass. David smirked what Terry got pissed he didn’t get ehst he wanted. Turn everyone against David and Shannon.

    • equinox2009

      ITA. Trampa, well we all know about her and her pussy husband but Heather and Terry need to get off their high horse, because they are looking very low class! Heather forgives but brings it all back up to defend her classless actions and Terry bringing up the comment David made 6 mos ago horses$it Pussy Eddies comment was far worse. Done with this trash. Heather, actress-joke!

  • italiano bambino

    Bring back Shannon and lizzie best addition to oc In a long time

    • RonnieIsBack

      Agreed. I love Shannon and I loved Lizzie’s spunk.

      Plus they both have hot huzzzbands…

  • nan/4

    I thought it was interesting to see the difference between the two “good-bye” scenes at the very end of the show. Tamra did not look at all genuine to me, but then again, she never does. Her tears and cries seem so forced, like a bad actress in a “B” movie. Vicki, while I’m sure she’ll love the alone time with Brooks, looked truly devastated when her kids left with little Troy. Showing the scenes back-to-back like they did emphasized just how phoney Tamra is, and I think she’s pretty desperate for a storyline too. JMO folks!!

    Take care.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Cannot stand Trampa and she was all for the fighting…did you see her face when Terry the Bitch started in on the Beadors….Again, whY DIDN’T ICKY VICKY speak up about Tamra saying Terry said take them down? I cannot wait until that chit comes out in the reunion. ..I am glad from reading Lizzie’s blog that she still isn’t fooled by Trampra…cooking her trashy meal. That wench..I hope they really let her know and where to go…I think they did bc she was posting and tweeting about needing a vacay after the reunion, etc. …
    Great recap!

    • Norrth

      I hope Vicki found her voice in defending Shannon, fully, at the reunion. I’m tired of her hiding in the shadows when Tamra gets going. She’ll stand up, a little, to Heather over Shannon.

  • RonnieIsBack

    I laughed when Crooks took Trampra’s hands in his..you know she wanted to react and scream but the camers were up in that botoxed face so she had to play it off…He was all slow talking and southern and she had to sit and listen to it and he called her out…it was hilarious…

    • Marsbars09

      Girl, I would have screamed if Brooks touched me.

      • RonnieIsBack

        IKR?

      • Dang, is Brooks really that bad? I must be missing something.

        • Marsbars09

          Girl his creep meter is off the charts!

        • Norrth

          I go back and forth on him this season. I think Brooks has changed. I don’t think he was as bad as he was in the beginning, but he was so awful in the beginning, in my opinion, that some of the ICK is still on him, for me. He and Vicki had me sold and believing they do care about each other, and I give her (and Briana) credit for not having her jump into a new marriage with him. I still have to side eye him. Loved him when he and Vicki were with David and Shannon, and again at the party.

        Ew, ew, ew! Don’t touch me. You don’t know me. Don’t touch me!

    I don’t buy that everything is just so perf in Beadorland…they both still have to drink constantly. I liked the way David smirked while Terry ranted like a fool. I also find nothing sexy in the chemistry between the Dubrows…and Heather needs to eat a sandwich. Vicki needs to add 3 inches to every dress she owns…but her dinner did look delish. When is is it ever appropriate to leave in the middle of a dinner and have a conversation in another room? I guess the cameras were waiting. Brooks is still icky even when he tries his hardest not to be. Tamra is becoming a one note shrew, who isn’t even interesting in an evil way.

    Great Job, Norrth. Twitter was blowing up about the comment that David made versus the comment Eddie made. Both were tacky, but only David was called out for it. I can’t wait for the reunion. (Actually, I can’t wait for you’re recap of the reunion!)

      If I had a reliable laptop, I would have been able to go over and take a look at those comments. I’m sure Terry was handed his cheesy backside after attacking David and letting Eddie go. The Dubrows, even while filming, must have realized how awful they seemed to have come up with the “fuming Terry” line. They’d forgotten that we saw them interacting with the Beadors for MONTHS, no problems. UGH!

    Q: Does throwing frozen crap into a skillet and pouring bottled tomato sauce on it really count as cooking?

    • Norrth

      LOL, I couldn’t tell what they were doing. Tamra’s cooking excited Eddie. What did he “cook” when he was a bachelor? I wonder if he was a microwavable meals kind of guy.

      • Wendy Owen

        Why do I think the A&F catalogue excites Eddie, too? Hmmmm….

    I didn’t watch the finale but am not surprised by Heather and Terry’s behavior. They seem really full of themselves and uptight.
