We are back at Heather’s party and the tension remains between Vicki’s face and everyone else. No one wants to ask about the stitches under her chin. Gretchen and Vicki are playing a game of “I’m not going to ask her, you ask her!” about her face and about Brooks. Eddie comes by just long enough to get his face on camera before heading off to a city council meeting for permits for the gym. Everyone is asking Tamra when the date of her wedding is…she doesn’t have one because Eddie won’t set one. Vicki brings up the onion ring thing. LOL. Heather is giving etiquette lessons on how to eat everything.
Gretchen is interrogating Vicki about Brooks. Essentially she says they have taken a step back. Gretchen is all, “Now you know what I felt like when I was dating Slade and everyone hated him and said bad things.” I guess she does have a point. Vicki makes a joke about Tamra giving her and Gretchen the evil eye because they are having pleasant conversation. Tamra is not amused by the comment. Tamra and Vicki have a pretty civilized conversation and suddenly Tamra is runs off crying saying she doesn’t want to do this. Drama.
Meanwhile, Alexis and Jim are taking dance lessons for their date night. Alexis says “no one knows this” but Jim and I were having financial issues last year. Really? Honey when TMZ knows it, everyone knows it. We knew. Alexis said she didn’t have any friends last year but now she has Vicki. The point of the whole scene was to say that Jim is not going to be such a hot-head this season.
The party is going along very nicely so Heather decides to put Vicki and Tamra together. They lock themselves in the wine cellar and work out their problems. Vicki starts crying to Tamra about Brooks. Tamra tries to say that she was trying to protect Vicki from Brooks. Vicki gets distracted by a bottle of wine. For real. And starts talking about how she and Don and Tamra and Simon had fun at a winery once. I’m totally serious. Gretchen and Tamra leave the party in the same limo and Gretchen immediately tries to sabotage and chance for reconciliation between Vicki and Tamra.
Alexis and Jim are preparing for the grand opening of their trampoline park, Jumping for Jesus! I may have gotten the name wrong. Alexis lists Jim’s former businesses but doesn’t mention selling forged baseball paraphernalia and getting shut down by the FBI. She does mention the pool table business but does not mention that it went into bankruptcy and ultimately was forfeited to the State. No mention of the failed Margaritaville restaurant. Alexis says she was not fired from FOX and uses the fact that they sent out a TV crew for the grand opening as proof.
Meanwhile, at Slade’s radio show he is talking about Vicki’s surgery (hypothetically) on the air asking his female co-host if he should mention the surgery when he sees her. He calls it “maybe her 13th surgery” and that she showed up looking “like Mickey Rourke.” Same old Slade.
Vicki’s renovation and redecoration of her home looks fantastic. I love the hand painted walls. Vicki is a doting grandma. I think she might steal the baby.
Eddie tells Tamra not to be friends with Vicki because she is a horrible person. I hate when the men butt in with their opinions.
Overall it was a pretty laid back show. The kind we always say we want. Until we get it. Let the bitching about how boring it was begin!!!
